Something to give reliable charges after a deep strike.
Mortarion and his Deathshroud are a huge points investment, theoretically hit very hard, but rolling a 9 to charge with no bonus or reroll is just too much of a gamble.

It is true that a lot of people do that, just because they can not keep up with the standards their parents set up for them. It gets worse when you have siblings that very much can do that. Then it is really bad.

The best thing is to concentrate on stuff you can be best. If it is to be criminal then be the "best" criminal there is. If you are insane then go full blown crazy person. At worse just stay at home and don't go out, so family doesn't have to feel shame about you on a daily basis.

Before the Imperium:

Before the Compliance of Trizton the inhabitants of this world led a rough life. The extreme and constant superstorm that constantly circled the equator of this world forced the inhabitants to seek the rough life at the extreme poles of the planet or live a nomadic life as the storm took four Terran months to complete its cycle. This split caused great feuds between the North and South however the single clan that claimed the belt of the world stood as noble mediators and political intercessors. Thier emblem was that of a nearly wiped out breed of birds found only on Trizton, the Vindorai, which was said to have talons that could grab full around a horse and a wingspan twice as long as one. The storm had carved a deep scar of steep valleys and treacherous ravines.

Neither side could march an army through the rough stretch of land the constant storming had made, yet the nomads rode powerful steeds capable of maneuvering such dangerous terrain and were well versed in cavalry warfare. These warriors draped themselves in deeply coloured purple robes and golden yellow trim. The flower used in their purple dye was only obtainable at the bottom of the deepest trench where magma began to seep through. It was a rite of passage for men to obtain the flower to prove they are prepared for becoming a full rider of their clan.

Any unsanctioned military action through their area was met with a swift and efficient penalty. The nomadic knights could quickly descend on their stumbling counterparts with surefooted flanking methods while Men-at-arms would leap from their steed preferring to fight on equal ground of their opponent and overwhelm them in close combat.

Arrival of the Imperium:

When the Dark Angels were tasked with bringing Trizton under compliance Azrael quickly observed the similarities between the nomadic clans and the Order he had heard of during the Lion’s rearing on Caliban. Using this as a bridge for his initial contact the nomads greatly respected the astounding warriors. Shortly after making contact with the remaining two factions of the planet troubles began to arise. The Northern kingdom saw the Dark Angels as gods while the Southern took an opposite view seeing them as demons. With the help of the nomads young and strong leader, Aidern and his top officers, they were able to convince the North that the Dark Angels were one of many and worked to serve a higher power and they followed the nomads willingingly into compliance. However the South remained rebellious even going as far as to insult the Lion the Dark Angels had preached of. After this Azrael deemed the southern region unfit for joining the Imperium and liquidated the entirety of the populace. The nomads saw the necessity and the Northerners paid no mind to the disappearance of their longtime foes. Needless to say, none of this made it into official reports and the nomadic clan was given the Southern Kingdom to use as a base of operations, recruiting and training center while the North was industrialized. Not long into gaining thier land in the south did the Angel’s Fortress Monastery take root.

Before Secession:

Aidern, Archallo and Adrellas were quickly indoctrinated into the Ravenwing due to their minor curiosity and honorable upbringing. Adrellas had become a Chaplin, encouraging his brothers to press on even in the thickest of battles. Archallo quickly took to piloting Landspeeders and admiring the technology the Astartes, he became known for his daring maneuvers and unquestionable loyalty to command. However it was Aidern that emerged the most tactically minded. Due to this his short time as a Sergeant was spent bonding with fellow Triztonians Daentos and Orellian, a Librarian and Apothecary respectfully. Even all this was seen as a tactical move on Aidern’s part, allying himself with those who had ensured futures in the Ravenwing. After Aidern’s promotion to Company Master Azrael, through Sammael’s request to allow such an experiment, allowed him to hand pick an elite few from the Ravenwing to form a trusted command squad. He looked no further than his homeworld and choose Orellian as his apothecary, Tryleus became his champion, Hasdiel was honored with the Ravenwing Banner, and Benedoec understudy of Tryleus. All together with two other Triztonian Black Knights Aidern took each mission as seriously as if the Primarch himself had sent him on his way. Even seen as an elite among elites the group pushed each other further. During training an older and experienced Librarian, Cudon, of the Deathwing took to admiring the Triztonians for their camaraderie and morale. In his strikeforce he sought to recruit as many as possible from the fledgling recruiting world. Many of the already numerous Nomad men were able to accept the geneseed, alterations and indoctrinations of the Astartes so the initial influx of Triztonian recruits was vast.

Please paint the vents on the soft carapace, I'm so tired of seeing people posting nids and they leave those details the same color as the rest of the carapace.

This bond of wings lead to numerous chases and victories. Near their end as Dark Angels Aidern lead the hunt of Domiel, a Fallen Angel to a recently awoken Necron Tombworld near their home. Destroying many of the Canoptek Servers of the world in their search only to be met by an Overlords legion, in an unexpected attempt to parlay Aidern said he would do no further harm to the Necrons in exchange for passage in their tombs to seek the traitorous angel. The Overlord, respecting the Honor of such a mission allowed the Astartes to pursue their hunt in exchange for a year of non-action between the factions. Knowing this is well above his position he accepts the offer. Eventually Adrellas was made Interrogator Chaplain after a cornered Domiel revealed his secrets as well as the knowledge that a Daemon Prince dedicated to Tzeentch had begun overseeing multiple daemonic summonings in the sector Trizton was located in to Adrellas in full view of the Command Squad after having lost a duel to the Chaplain. With such information in their ears not a single Angel among them wavered in their faith. Asmodai took this as a sign and urged Azrael to allow the now informed Dark Angels to forge a Successor Chapter and pursue the Daemon Prince on the chance he is another fallen.

Founding of the Angels of Vindication:

“Vindication is sought in the darkest of corners, but it may only come after light was shed”- Adrellas - High Interrogator Chaplain of the Main Vindicator Contingent

Given the (almost) full knowledge and blessing of the Dark Angel’s Inner Circle and instructed on how to build and structure his Chapter Aidern reaches out beyond his already devoted command squad to those he had longed aligned with to dawn the Purple and Yellow colors of the chapter deemed Angels of Vindication.

He recruits Daentos as his personal Librarian and Adrellas his High Chaplain. Cudon stepped forward with a choice pick of ten Triztonian Terminators. Archallo came along with his Darkshroud and a fleet of loyal Landspeeders and Techmarines. On top of this Sammael gifts him nine Ravenwing Bikers who were also nomads from the time before. Azrael decrees that Trizton’s recruitment will be funneled only into the Angels of Vindication and tasks the whole of the chapter with eradicating the Necron infestation of surrounding planets.

The Angels of Vindication are known for using small and fast but coordinated strike groups. Much like their founders they split into wings - The Impervious and The Relentless. Companies 3-10 behave normally. Outside of this is the Chapter’s Armory consisting of the chapter's Techmarines and Landspeeders, a Librarium consisting of the Chapter's Librarians, the Chapter Space Marine Fleet which all behave the same as most other chapters with the exception that the leaders are part of the Chapter’s governing inner circle.

The Impervious - Mirror of their Deathwing Forefathers this is the terminator and heavy assault division of the Angels of Vindication. They specialize in close quarter combat and defensive formations. When their counterpart charge forward the Impervious appear to assure that a step back is never taken, they push onward towards whatever objective they are set on and will tenaciously hold it until told otherwise.

The Relentless - As the Impervious take after their Dark Angel brothers so do The Relentless. The Cavalry backbone of the force, they focus on outmaneuvering their opponents and seeking vital weak points in the enemy’s line. They are also used as the spearhead of the army getting to the fight well before anyone else can to ensure no further Fallen are heard. All pilots for the flyers and skimmers are chosen from select marines that have proven a natural talent for maneuvering.

a lot has changed in the last 10-15 years. when I went to school you were expected to be the best at everything or you were nothing. Now you have A class classes, for those that go in good in life, B class for normies, and special classes. And special classes aren't for retards. You can go to special classes for people doing sport, art, if you look good you can be stupid as a shoe, but they will send you to a modeling school, and you won't have to worry about math, chemistry etc. There are classes for manial workers, and you often get to see how your work is going to look in the future. And it is good, if you learn how to be a cashier at a mall at 10, they don't have to teach you how to work when you are 17. Same with factory workers.

I can't accurately predict which faction will be the next Xenos opponent in a starter set. Every person is going to give you a different answer unfortunately. The people who are super into the lore might be able to give you an informed prediction based on the events happening in universe.
My hot take? Orks are a strong possibility and Tyranids might be a safe bet too, only because they have been in boxes before. But you have to also look at which product lines are overdue a major refresh by GeeDubs. I'm sure not many people saw Necrons coming but it's why they are in the box this time.
Apologies for the word vomit. But I wouldn't hold out for a starter set to get your Orks/Tyranids. That road leads to dissapointment.

They're switching to it because 500pts is the lowest points you can technically play the game. Some of the SC! boxes have like ~200pts in there.

>Of the top players
Cherry picking, that's not a particularly relevant stat compared to win rate, or the proportion of top placements to the number of people playing them.
They're prevalent at the top tables, but not oppressively so. Late 8e is was varying flavors of marines at the top tier. Now it's Daemons, Custodes, Harlequins, Marines, with plenty of armies that are just shy of top tier / still viable.

Cherry picking would be looking at random high end players, not looking at all the top tables and the top players. Went even to the top 10 ITC players for you, its 9 out of the top 10 playing Marines. How is that not oppressive? and no, winrate gets tanked by the retards playing the faction.

We know nothing, all we know about future codexes is that:

1. Dark Angels and Death Guard are next
2. Next new set of codexes come out early next year, probably January, and they are an unspecified Imperial faction and an unspecified Xenos faction.

So Knights are possibly soon, but they are competing against... 5 other Imperial factions minimum, possibly double that if all the Space Marine chapters that got codex supplements in 8th get 9th edition ones again right away (Fists, Hands, Scars, Raven Guard, Salamanders, Ultramarines).

In a bit of a weird place, not many sisters players in general so getting a good understanding of whether or not they're actually good or are just lucking their way through tourneys due to people's lack of experience against them is difficult. Right now the standout thing seems to be the only really "competitive" subfactions are valorous heart and bloody rose, the others aren't terrible but they aren't great either. From my experience they take on all comers style lists very well, but can buckle when faced with a lot of enemy armour, even with a lot of meltas. They're very reliant on strategems to help them do most of the heavy lifting, they do have a lot of them but most of the good ones are expensive and you'll be stacking them in many scenarios. They also didn't get a psychic awakening, so their codex isn't as powerful as it could be but also isn't the worst.

4x Company Commander w/ Boltgun; one as Warlord; one with Dagger in reserves

6x Infantry Squad w/ Plasmagun, Lascannon
6x Infantry Squad w/ Plasmagun

Reserves (with dagger officer):
3x Special Weapon Squad w/ 3x Plasmagun
2x Command Squad w/ 4x Plasmagun
1x Command Squad w/ Heavy Flamer, 3x Flamer (fuck yeah 12" flame alpha strike)

3x Scout Sentinel w/ Multilaser (block Deep Strike moves with scout moves, fill Brigade)

3x Mortar Squad


A bit under 1500 points, RF at 18" and Wilderness Survivors as Doctrine.

around 140 guys with morale inquisitor bubble fire and objective line, then reserve alpha strike with 2 rerolling command squads, 3 plasma specs (all at only 1 CP reserve), Flamer strike against the one dickin´ horde and an unholy amount of board control and raise the banner dudes. 6 Lascannons, 29 Plasmaguns RF at 18" should do a lot of damage, also those 100 lasguns also RF at 18".

But from GW's IP view point, they can't sell it because they would have to have the heads with the Havoc kit or the weapons with the rubric kit and the sprues don't work that way the way they are designed.

I know nothing is stopping them but internal policy. But internal policy is still enough for them to consider if financially bad and not do it.

Learn to brace your hands against each other and your arm/wrist against a solid object to prevent shaking.
Practice the exact brush strokes above the model before you actually make the strokes.
Twist the brush as you draw paint across the palette to make sure the tip is pointed and accurate.
Make sure you use the correct size brush for the job.
Thin paints can be washed off with a wet brush or sucked up with a dry one.
Areas you overprint can be repainted to cover your shame.
