Remove all the copy and paste shit from marines. Make their wargear worth while.

Since hit modifiers are capped replace those abilities with something that won't do nothing. I'd love a wraith troop choice, and d3 damage on d-scythes so they can actually kill heavy infantry. Also make crystal targeting matrix actually do something.

You can have as many cultists as you want, but I'd restrict Legion-colored ones to just the squad leaders and maybe special weapon carriers.

Don’t really understand why some people are disappointed with the Silent King’s design.

If anything it shows that he’s hardcore as fuck, he doesn’t need fancy armour or jewellery all over his body. The guy is floating around on a giant chair (the Emperor, anyone?) with a fucking god strapped to it like a big fuck-you trophy. His pose is perfect too, he’s just stood there with his hand out like “As you can see, I operate on a whole other level”

I think he’s neat, it shows that he’s not much different to his people except for the fact that he’s a bit taller, I’m actually kind of tired of HQ or Elite figures basically looking like they’re a different species to make them stand out, SK achieves that with the shit all around him.

The legion traits get overhauled so they're as good as everyone elses, straight up replace the word bearers trait with something more universally useful, make chosen and cult marines W2, all unit champions gain an additional wound (Cult champions and Terminator champions have 3 wounds, CSM and cultist champs have 2) keep standard CSM cheap and let them have a special or heavy weapon every 5 models so I can take twenty man blobs with 4 special weapons, Release a plastic cultist kit and a plastic kit for chosen that is compatible with the standard CSM kit for more kitbashing.

Please make markerlights great again. +1 bs should not be 5 markerlight hits. Make crisis cheap enough to ever be worth taking. Nerf shield drones. I'm tired of all the complaining when I bring any amount in any size game. Give me a light transport so i dont have to sink the cost of a battle tank just to move my dudes around. Make Kroot worth taking. Either a point reduction or some sort of buff. More Kroot units wouldn't hurt. Give me a melee crisis squad to run Farsight with. Give Tau the ability to deep strike within flamer range. (Honestly give that to everybody, flamers being useless out of deep strike is so annoying.)

My first two armies don't need much at all. GSC and Sisters are both in really good spots atm. The GSC could maybe get something of more staying power but thats it and the Sisters could get an overhaul of most ecclesiarchy units (Missionary, Preacher, Crusaders, Death Cult Assassins could all use an update). But honestly those can wait for a long while.

A GSC-tier update. A big new rule (like cult ambush or acts of faith) that sorta defines how we play and enough new models/kits to effectively double our unit selection from the current 8 to 16 or so.

Unless there are models you really want, I'd wait with buying anything until we get all the point costs for 9th which is coming in like a week or two.
It also depends how meta you want to be. Cawl is always good, the transport/tank is good. Those raiders aren't bad as they can harass and avoid melee, etc. Perhaps the safest bet is to get another start collecting box? But like I said, unless you really want some models, I'd wait for the 9th ed points, as your current army could easily suddenly be 500 points.

Their character dynamic is the best part of the book DESU.

Obyron is trying is damnest to be a dignified and stoic warrior bodyguard to protect his bonded nemesor. A senile old handbag of a nemesor who's lost every ounce of common sense and seems determined to piss off every peer he meets and get himself killed in a ridiculous fashion despite all his strategic brilliance.

Obyrons constant struggle to limit the damage that Zahndrekh's madness can do to himself and his court is the driving force of the plot and Obyrons jaded cynicism contrasts brilliantly with the "Modern Major General" vibes Zahndrekh gives off constantly.

Then at the end after they've reached the heart of the severed tombworld and Zahndrekh has destroyed the master control system that "Turned all these necrons into soulless husks" Zahndrekh implies that he's been pretending to be retarded this entire time.

Thats Obyrons reaction too, the ending of the book is genuinely fucking heartwarming.

‘But… our souls, Zahndrekh. The machine… it could give us our souls back. It could give us our bodies. Please, lord, let’s at least take part of it with us, so we can know for sure.’

‘Oh, dear vargard, why do you hold on to such things? You must let the thought of this awful contraption go.’

Zahndrekh put an arm round him in consolation, and continued. ‘Let me pose you this thought, Obyron, in the hope it will bring you ease. What do you think caused you to hold true to me for all this time – despite all the power you might have enjoyed through betrayal – if it were not a soul? What can love, but a being with a soul?

‘Even if we all ceased to be flesh and blood millions of years ago, which of course I don’t believe for a moment,’ – Zahndrekh actually winked – ‘wouldn’t it have suited us better to live in denial of that, as some fools might say I had done? Wouldn’t it be better, Obyron, just to accept our fate, and enjoy immortality for the everlasting life of merry campaigning it has proved to be?’

Obyron stared hard at Zahndrekh, unsure of what he was hearing. ‘You old bastard. You knew all along.’

‘I knew nothing of the sort, old friend. But since you seem to be labouring under some delusion that you’re a soulless machine, I thought I should at least make some attempt to set you straight.’ Zahndrekh stood up then, and patted his thigh for Obyron to join him. ‘Come now, soldier. Up on your feet, and let’s return to the flagship. If we’re quick about it, we can have this all cleared up in time for a truly astonishing feast.’

Obyron, ever loyal, obeyed his lord. He would have wept, but he had no tears.

Zahndrekh has got a point, the necrons think to have lost their souls, and in a sense that's true, their souls were devoured by the c'tan, but considering what we know about souls
>the pariah genes stop a being from -developing- a soul
>artificial intelligences, machines and even weapons can gain a soul
>the haemunculi of commoragh can regrow a being -and- its own soul even after it died
then it's entirely possible that some fragments of soul have remained in some necrons, or that their consciousness can allow them to cultivate a soul back given time and will
a biological body would certainly help in that, but if a biological body can exist without a soul and a soul can exist without a biological body, then maybe the necrons haven't lost the potential to have a soul

Yeah but for 5 pts more you can get intercessors which have 100% more wounds and their choice of:

>+6" range and -1 AP
>+12" range and -2 AP
>+1 shot

If they go with the last one for the same 60 pts you can have:

>4 Wounds & 8 shots when standing still or at half range (tacticals)
>6 wounds & 9 shots at all times with option to advance & fire at penalty (intercessors)

An extra shot is mostly worthless, its 6 hits every 100 shots. Then you have to wound and save.

I don't get your problem. I asked. What is your end goal? If it's winning, you use the good unites, and in Tau's case they are good at shooting. Saying they are not is retarded.
But using bad units, and then saying all Tau units are therefore bad is just retarded.
I play Alpha Legion with 3 Defilers which doesn't give them anything, but I'm not saying all alpha legion is useless because my Defilers can't do anything when I know that if I want to win I could just make a possessed bomb.

most of the range being bad is simply the reality of it.

And i'm telling you they are an army with only one weakness. the psychic phase. My -2 to hit is pointless if your overwatch doesn't suffer from it, and even if I kill one of your units in melee the rest are no longer in melee and I can be shot again. in range I am outgunned and can't kill anything important because drones suck up all the damage. In melee I have to survive through you shooting, and shooting in overwatch with a better BS, and only then can I try to kill something in melee, and regardless of the outcome you just shoot again next turn.
Are you using your drones incorrectly? You are supposed to hide them behind cover, so when your opponent shoots he has to shoot other things, and then you use drones to filer his fire. Bolt gun? take it. Lascannon? Onto the drone.

Your drones are supposed to tank high damage hits, not volume. And it's a stats game. You have to position your army so that in melee you at worst sacrifice one unit.

What's wrong with priming sprues?

humans can get bolters with some bullshit in them which reduces the recoil enough that they are usable by even those not blessed with being rambo

>> No.73570399

>>73570356
When you snip off the pieces you have often non-primed pieces in obvious places you must then reprime -- and then you're creating two different levels and generally adding way more primer onto already coated parts.

It's just making more work when the goal was to reduce said work!
