The fuck. Reading legions fluff in black books, DG were probably the most fucked up legion which at some point decided to burn and pollute every world they have conquered and to deliberately cause as much unnecessary damage as possible.Preferably with chemicals. Also they had the highest attrition rate (ok, WE and IW had higher, but WE are out of equation because they agreed for retard implants and Pert was a master of logistics) because Mortarion decided that it's cool to walk slowly under heavy fire. IW are memed but DumbGuard is just pathetic.

>> No.75302100

I think my biggest complaint about the modern HH series, both in the novels and FW stuff, is how so many legions were already aligned with their primarchs' methods before meeting them. Death Guard are one of my favorite legions largely because of how much they changed when they met Morty. The change from Dusk Raiders to Death Guard was huge, but now we learn that Night Lords were always a terror weapon, Dark Angels were always secretive, World Eaters were always super choppy, and so on.
Back before all this lore came out, I imagined the legions all starting off fairly generic, the Emperor designing them to be soldiers first and foremost. A few would develop distinct identities during the Crusade, but they wouldn't really become truly distinct until their primarchs, who were originally just intended to be fucking great generals but who are now very heavily influenced by new cultures, returned and turned everything upside down. I feel like the Emperor would have been more likely to make 20 all-comers forces rather than a bunch of specialized units.
There would be exceptions, of course. I can't imagine Thousand Sons geneseed ever not having a lot of psychic potential, for example, but I think you get what I mean.
The Emperor designing each legion for a specific job and then having the chaos gods send the primarchs to the perfect world to train them for that job seems lazy and overly convenient to me.

>> No.75302198

>>75302100
I find no fault at specializations, except that "conviniently" most primarch's backgrounds or methods of war overlapped with their yet to be joined legions. Unless of course it was all part of the plan which sounds like a max stretch.

>> No.75302383

>>75302198
the psychology of space marines are shaped by their geneseed which is based upon their primarch and this geneseed shapes the minds of primarch and legionary alike making them more alike than to other legions when isolated. Konrad was always meant to be a terror weapon, perhaps in greater days he could have been one of just terror but ended up as one of barbaric and degenerate terror. The legions were shaped from their father's genetic information and were supposed to work alongside the primarchs from the origin of the heresy but without their primarchs hand they ended up often strange and flawed, so to did their primarchs (designed with an upbringing on terra in mind) get a bit fucked up by their early years away from terra, But both primarch and legion are made from the same stuff more or less which means that in some cases they will end up quite alike as a night lord is designed to favor terror while say a white scar prefers to stay on the edges of civilization driving away the terrors.

>>75302100
I can somewhat agree with this, but I think there’s a good job mixing the ones that changed and the ones that stayed the same. WE changed if not massively, IH and DG changed significantly, as did the BA, RG, WB, and to a lesser extent White Scars and Sallies. DA had minor changes but only minor, wolves of both kinds found their primarch so early they barley had time to be anything, IF and UM changed not at all, IW didn’t really change, Alphas are meme, Tsons and EC are sort of defined by their pre primarch tragedies that shaped their latter character as their primarchs repaired them. you could argue that night lords changed a fair bit near the end when nostramo started sending them worse gene stock.
Though i won’t deny the “and they went to the perfect planet to become what they were destined to be” is a bit blatant wuth some but less so for say, ferrus, vulkan, dorn, fulgrim and sanguinius. Fulgrim’s planetary takeover and subsequent rule is still retarded to me. “Yeah the mines suck but let’s paint about it”

>> No.75302625

>>75302383
But the primarchs were also changed by their trip through the warp. The most obvious one is Sanguinius, with the wings and all, but they were all altered. The geneseed left on Terra, which was used to make the first marines, was not tainted in this way. The changed version of the primarch DNA did not enter the legions until the primarchs reunited with the Emperor.

Wrote a list based around one truly massive gun. At 3k I can get some more aircraft and mobile elements in there but at the moment it is Iron Warriors-tier static despite the Thallax.

2500 Ordo Reductor Crusade detachment

Archmagos Reductor, Djinn-Skein, 4x Occularis, Machinator, Familliar, Photon Thruster (315)

Secutarii Axiarch, omnispex, photon gauntlet, power fist (80)

10 Hoplites, Omnispex (140)
3x3 Thallax, plasma fusil, meltabombs, Destructor (175x3)

Avenger Fighter, 2x Krakens, Battle Servitor Control (190)
3 Destructors, Photon Thruster (240)
ORAT squadron, 2x medusa, Machine Spirits, Siege Plating (310)

Fortification: Aegis line, quadgun (100)
Lord of War: Macrocannon Aquila Strongpoint, Void Shield, 4x Heavy Bolter (600)

>Total 2500/2500

Axiarch mans the big gun with Deconstructive Confluence, Hoplitesman the bunker, everyone else does the obvious things. Aegis line wraps around the front of the big fort for 4+ cover, Myrmidons stand off, Thallax dart around and cap stuff while the artillery can either stand back and rain hell or serve as assault tanks with front AV13 and Machine Spirit letting them move 12 and shoot.

Unless they changed it (and its BL so they may have) Fulgrim's backstory was that he increased the planet's recycling efficiency and land reclamation to the point that it went from a constant struggle not to starve overnight to a place where people had time for leisure activities.

ehhh I mean you can make an argument that some of the legions clearly derive their nature from intentional geneseed traits (or at least the byproducts of intentional traits) but there's clearly a psychic element to it, probably most clearly in the IX whose descendants all get memories of being on the wall during the Siege and yeah, OK, their particular geneseed was intended to ramp up the eating brains thing from the start but that's just fucking weird

not that big of a stretch to suggest that the Night Lords, Blood Angels and other psyker or weak-psyker Primarchs had some kind of innate but unrecognized connection to their legions even long before they were found

or maybe the flesh-change wasn't the only gift Teethczh bestowed on the legions, maybe it gave them the gift of narrative irony

It's explicitly the Transmens. The War Hounds, Imperial Heralds, Dusk Raiders and Luna Wolves are all listed (so it can't be Horus own legion that's not counted). The other four are the Iron Warriors, Alpha Legion, Emperor's Children and Night Lords.

The Thousand Sons don't turn on their brothers in the Isstvan betrayal - they don't participate in it at all and fight only incidentally in the early stages of the conflict. As far as Russ is concerned they're pretty much fucked at that point. Book 1 only deals with that betrayal - I think it's mentioned or alluded to several other times in the same book, but I don't have time to re-read the whole thing tonight.

Of the remaining legions, six of the loyalists have definite names and identities before reuniting with their Primarchs so it sort of falls down there; the IX also were called the Eaters of the Dead and Revenant Legion, so seven, arguably, but that's not the point of a hagiography of the Imperium which is the perspective the black books are written from.

Yeah, that was the plan. I was going to try and build something vaguely similar to pic related, and then mount a Leviathan Storm Cannon in the belly hatch as a kind of hover-gunship.

Regular Avengers are cool but the model looks a little low-tech. At 3k I'll probably add a second Avenger and a couple of Krios tanks or a Macrocarid, get a little more mobility in there.

I don't know if the quadgun emplacement can use the BS and special rules of the Hoplites that would normally be firing it if it's shooting Interceptor, but I see no reason why it shouldn't. Makes it kinda brutal against Kraken lightnings that would otherwise rip the fort to pieces. Hits on 2+ rerollable, -1 to Jink from Omnispex and pens on 5+ with +1 to damage table.

I really like white scars fluff and crunch but I don't want to paint all white PA and vehicles.

I don't think this is a legal list. You can't take 2 full detachments in HH; one would need to be an allied detachment. That means you can't do 2 HQs in one of those forces. Also, the delegatus must be your Warlord, so that can't be your allied one.
And, as the other anon said, you are going to have a bad day against vehicles like predators, dreads, land raiders, and pretty much anything airborn.

Did the female perpetual give up her eternal life as a perpetual by free will or something? It was cool in a way but a little confusing. She’s definitely dead-dead now.

It's not really stated, but I would come down on the side of Sabotage being a sort of shooting attack as it can only target (among other things) a transport, not the unit inside the transport. So to prevent being hit by a Saboteur's attack, you would just hide it inside a transport until he arrived. Void shields are fully effective against a shooting attack and so the void-shielded target of such an attack would simply collapse one shield (which is still an advantage since there's no AP roll to fail, and the Saboteur is going to arrive in his own turn, not the enemy turn, giving no chance to restore the shield before the weakness can be exploited) when the Saboteur turns up.

There's also an argument for melee (cover saves may not be taken against the Sabotage attack, cover saves do not apply in melee), but there are also weapons which ignore cover with shooting attacks so it's not 100% watertight as arguments go. The Saboteur does come with melta bombs as standard so it's arguably supposed to represent that, but I also feel that if that were the case we might expect the attack to be an automatic melta bomb hit, even if it could be shared out to infantry per the actual rule. As it stands neither the infantry nor vehicle attack is much like a melta bomb profile anyway.

Personally? Shooting attack, unless it's FAQ'd somewhere/sometime. If you're unable to agree, roll off for it.

Yeah, that was my thought. Each hit scored against the model strikes the void shield unless it's explicitly a close combat attack, and this isn't. I think if it was a narrative match it would make sense for it to go through since the fluff is that the guy has planted some sneaky bombs, but RAW it hits the shield.

If I may weigh in on the Pertie vs Morty legion debate, they represent two different aspects of siege warfare in a way.

Death Guard are meant to invoke the muddy, grimy hellscape of poison gas and over the top charges and gun battles in no man's land; ala some twisted futuristic WW1 doctrine of the British Infantry at the Battle of Somme with the German penchant for chlorine gas shells. Hell, their colour scheme is meant to highlight that fact. Forlorn pessimism and an attraction to just going hard in the toxic hellscape they drop on enemy forces.

IW are the Prussian+German army of WW1, through and through, just take out the chemical weapons usage and add in rolling bombardments as a common doctrine. These guys are through and through professionals of the craft, requiring no embellishments or other things; purely functional aesthetic. Stoic with the undercurrent of bitter rage when it comes down to the wire.

The 9E blast rule - squad numbers count for minimum hits with a Blast weapon, max hits for outsized squads - is a great improvement over templates generally. I think my only problem with the ruleset generally - given that it's mostly just doing what the older rules did, but with cleaner operations and less time eaten away - is that I'd like Overwatch to be better. Haven't played with the new rules - I think it's very limited in terms of who can Overwatch, which is how it was when it was introduced and it took away your prior movement/shooting phase and even had to be marked with a counter - but I still think certain weapons should be auto-hit rather than snap shots at that range, maybe even turn your hit rolls in the melee into snap-hits. It's hard to look at a terminator squad with storm bolters and assault cannon and heavy flamers and say "yeah, they're going to unload onto those purestrains buuut basically only fire stands any chance of hitting them" when the assault cannon should shred anything that gets close.

Also, I really, really want assault cannons to go back to being rotary autocannons and not just rotary autoguns, but that's just me.

Literally no SA unit has a staying power to hold a dedicated astartes cc unit for even a single phase so countercharging is not an even doable. Especially since T3,4+ 10 man unit is so easy to shot down anyway. I often play vs auxilia and always feel bad afterwards even though my opponent considers it a fair game, but his veletaris with axes never made it into CC even once.

Depends, I dont optimize to fight solar auxilia beyond chain axes on reavers. Its also hard to say since Ive been cucked on actual HH rules and games since 2017. Its a tough bill to get the murder firefighters into CQC, but they should be able to suicide with a termi-squad for less than half the cost. What legion/faction do you run anon?

Oh yeah, I was perhaps a little over the top, it's certainly a style unit at best and relies heavily on the Lord Marshal tanking hits to get a decent number of swings off. I've seen them deployed fairly well in a lasrifle section list against Assault squads that would otherwise chew through the entire line or mopping up stuff like drop meltavets.
Not sure about the power mace thing though, there's usually so many Marines relative to Auxilia, Militia, Mechanicum and Daemons that nobody bothers with the AP4 aside from list tailoring.

>> No.75318572

Yeah, they definitely should have a cc+close range stormtroopers for the job to complete their siege/trench warfare image. There are couple of options already to represent such unit but I wish there was a dedicated one with their own shenanigans.

>>75318225
point taken, but if orks can't hit with little guns they shouldn't be using big ones either

again, I think maybe that between engagement range and a minimum range, certain kinds of weapon should be much more likely to hit, which makes low BS armies that really shouldn't be relying on anything but horde and auto-hit for a shooting experience much more likely to fight close-quarters as, you would hope, they were intended

don't get me wrong, ork snipers would be hilarious the way tau melee specialists would be, but it ain't gonna happen no matter what you do to the rules and we shouldn't be encouraging stand off and shoot with low BS

>>75318258
oh yeah, they can be FUN, no question, but for your MEQ or even GEQ with BS3/4+, 6 shots on a big blob with a missile for 3 hits is a reasonable trade in time and effort compared to getting out the template, centering it over the target, checking to see who's in range; per-unit hits takes away some of the slowdown, especially the unconscious slowdown where people are trying to micro-manage maximum blast template coverage for every shot, it adds up and when you're only talking about frag missiles anyway it's not fun, at least not in the way that laying down an exterminatus template is

Well, you dont need to be pinpoint accurate when your shooting the HE rounds from the Schwerer Gustav; general area is good enough at that point, nit at the same time, pieplate weapons suck ass for hitting vehicles with any sort of ferocity.

Its why I like the split edition idea of roll d6/2d6/3d6/etc vs singular, big targets, then the pieplate for smaller, numerous targets. Fluffwise its just switching your ammo type between shots from HEAT/APDS to HE/HESH, or some shit like that.

A platoon-style infantry unit, bikes or cavalry, a build a bear tank like the one the Mechanicum gets (but weaker, of course) to represent weird local stop-gap tech, more diverse evil provenances to represent later stage Heresy (I don't think it's want to see daemon engines, though(, a walker tank since in think they're fun, an elites squad of almost good infantry. More abhuman traits like to +1 toughness in exchange for lower Initiative. I love things that trade stats like that.
Let grenadiers take special weapons in 10 man squads.
Honestly, my only real complaint about the list is how restricted it is by the limited number of troops slots. It's the horde army, but Solar Auxilia can technically fit more units and models into a list. And taking any sort of specialized infantry denies you a bigger infantry squad. I found the Renegades and Heretics list from IA13 to be much more well rounded in that regard. The Kroot mercs list from 3e also has some neat ideas

On a related note, I'd like to see the SoS get a force orge chart like the Eldar Corsairs had. The Cadre thing is fun, but it's not all that compatible with a standard force org chart.

I know there's a bit of fluff in the Fabius Bile novels about Word Bearers (at least post-Heresy) sporting over three hundred different shades of red, all approved by the Dark Council. The exact number would vary since the council members would frequently ban certain reds on a whim and give the thumbs up to others.

Anyway, I think it's easy to imagine some other legions doing similar shit, even before the Heresy. Like, it's easy to picture the Emperor's Children wearing different kinds of purple with each shade signifying different things. Fulgrim might have approved a darker hue for one of his Lord Commander's and their cohort, or a lighter hue for a battle group that successfully pulled off a critical compliance action. And so on.

Many special characters are made to have points values to be roughly in line with the role they represent.

Many of those also don't have any super unique special rules, rather fixed warlord traits etc.

Most are unimpressive because they don't conform to the ap2 at initiative meta for beatstick characters.

https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/resources/fw_site/fw_pdfs/Horus_Heresy/Navigator.pdf

Carries a nuncio-vox, provides good psyker and daemon defense, makes his unit harder to shoot at in general which is never a bad thing for a deathstar and makes all psykers roll 3d6 pick 2 highest on the Perils table, which is just hilarious.
I'm almost tempted to take him with Word Bearers just to make all my psykers either explode instantly or Warp Surge half the time on Perils.

Later they changed the Mars hull to have a larger turret ring, but some of the turrets have the old sized ring, so have to come with the adapter.

That explains why it's not even listed on the "manual"

Ever tried to assemble the old FW resin baneblades? This is the front of the instructions page. The remaining info is on the back.
Everyone, and I mean everyone, got the treads wrong the first time. And because they were resin, one side was often 1 link longer than the other.

are there any books that cover what Typhus was up to during the heresy?
I seem to remember Morty complaining about him missing in Scars, and maybe in Path of Heaven too - and he supposedly betrayed the DG to Nurgle but i cant really find much on that

Yeah, get that Dune conversion stuff going on. The fun and fluffy thing to do here would be to take a Tainted Flesh army and load up on Rogue Psykers. They can roll on Malefic Daemonology, when they inevitably eat a 3-dice Perils to the face they either roll Warp Surge and start slaughtering stuff or die, get possessed on a roll of 2+ and become a slightly less amazing combat monster.

Unfortunately you can only get one because the Navigator is a HQ, you need a Force Commander and I think you only get one Rogue Psyk per slot, so it's kind of a waste.
I just wanted to rain horrific psychic abominations down upon my foes.

Well, keep poking at it. There might be a list buried in there somewhere.

It sounds fun, just needs a kicking. If you could in fact take three per slot you could run 6 and trust in the inherent unreliability of Malefic rather than the Navigator curse, but FW says no fun allowed.

There must be a way. Some sort of counts-as ally nonsense? The rules are such a mess that loopholes and combos must exist somewhere.
