So i got indomitus for the rulebook and necrons, a friends buying the primaris shit off me as he is a pleb, but i haven't touched Necrons since 3rd edition and finding that codex last week and reading it gave me a hankering.

Question is what do i pick up? I've heard from testers of 9th that The Deciever is a must buy model but then you have the idea of things being replaced. My OCD is already dealing with the fact my existing necron warriors and the new ones dont match but we know things like destroyers are getting new sculpts as well so what is safe to pick up that wont be replaced? and what should be replaced? god knows those finecast flayers are the worst but in sculpts and quality.

a meme, also causal play. At comp level you are right, there is no fucking use for conscripts.

>Scions are basically neutral I think
Most of my units and vehicles got bumped up around 20-ish points (since I run full squads rather than MSU), aside from the command squads which were more or less unchanged (74-75 for the plasma+medkit) or a bit cheaper (83-75 for the melta+medkit).

Honestly considering the vehicle rules, being able to move and fire taurox gatling guns and shit is going to be nice and worth the 20 point bump.

irrelevant, the lordosis is exaggerated in a way that looks bad and is inconsistent with the rest of the range, which still features it but at a much more bearable extent

Furthermore, would it make sense if said Forge World, having fallen to Chaos/allied with the Dark Mechanicum would focus its attention on the perfection of humanity through mechanical and biological means?
I envision that the Forgeworld is quite prosperous as a result of selling augmented soldiers and war-mutants to various regional warlords and aliens. The planet is also host to a force of Chaos Space Marines, including some former acolytes of Fabius Bile, who the world's ruling council of Tech-Priests employ for targeted raids and pirate activities to gather particular reosurces of interests.

It's a free 40k-type game with Legally Distinct representatives for all the 40k factions. Much less rules bloat and way more standardized units/weapons/rules.

You lose some of the Super Special My Guys boosts of 40k, but there also isn't the wild favoritism of GW's Best Selling Golden Boys.

The best part is that all the units are balanced by a stat calculator, so you don't get absurd price inconsistencies like Cultists costing more than Guardsmen.

Grav devastators are do ~6 wounds to T8 3+ compared to ~7 from eradicators at range and ~9 up close. Likewise, they may be much cheaper, but losing even 1 wound really hurts on your T4 W1 3+ guys, whereas losing up to 2 wounds of T5 W3 3+ models doesn't affect their shooting at all. Eradicators are almost always the better pick, especially considering the smaller boards, as they're much more durable with similar shooting.

doesn't really matter to me honestly, this army will lose most games it plays against a competent opponent. it's extremely slow, easy to shoot at (theyre practically shooting practice) and weak as tissue paper. however it does damage nearly exclusively through mortal wounds and nearly everything flies. also it spawns many spore mines.
the army seems fun to play against !

Meanwhile the CSMs are all pretty much washed up has-beens who has flocked to the shelter of the Forgeworld aswell as the odd bilesque loon. On the planet they are then free to lose themselves in whatever vice they prefer so long as they are ready for the next piratical expedition.

It's a good day for the Custodes. Finally my Telemon will see the light of day. Waiting for my Aquilon terminator and Saggitarum order to start to paint the army.
I'm quite already with my Slaanesh Daemons army, I was expecting the point increase in HQs, at least for the Keepers of Secrets, the only I did't expect was Syll'Esske, 230 points is just too much, he is a murderhouse, but lacking FLY and only moving (9+D6)" was the weakest part. Slaanesh daemons still break the fighting order, and Daemonettes are still incredible troops (any troop that can move 8+D6 inches and still charge, while having an invunerable save, is welcome. They may die to high fire-rate, but stucking Hard-hitting but low attack-fire-rate in CC is still amazing for just 7 ppm).
Slaanesh was always my "casual" army that could use on both 40k and AoS without needing to get any additional mode (unlike Tzeentch and Nurgle, which require a handful of different models). Still a very fun army to play, and the KoS being able to reach second floors is amazing.
Also, I shit you now, Exalted KoS with -1 wound rolls against shooting, is the T'aufag nightmare, 99% of their weapons will wound on 6+, needing around 346 of accumulative damage (before the hit-roll, wound-roll, etc) to actually down a KoS (461 total damage if you use the 2 CP strat to increase the inv.sv to 4++). I still see people using the 4++ Exalted trait against shooting armies (that should only be chosen when fighting melee armies or armies with a lot of S3 shooting (since those already wound of 6+).
