because 8th and start of 9th wulfen were the good option and TWC were the bad option. People sold/got rid of their m TWC odels, but now they need 2x5 for units and at least 2 for HQs. With start collecting being slowly phased out, this means good sells for the TWC boxs.

Does anyone have experience with 40k and Bolt Action? I was thinking of playing Astra Militarum and I stumbled onto BA and while I probably prefer 40k aesthetically, I hear BA is more fun to play.

I can only afford one at the moment, and I'll mainly be playing with one other opponent mostly. Would you recommend BA over 40k?

How much better does it play than 40k? While I don't have any immediate plans to play other opponents, it would be cool to have the option down the line and 40k is the safer bet. If it plays almost as well as BA, I might just stick to 40k I guess.

Yes, Blood Angels are all undead Transylvanian aristocrats who bite their victims in their necks before draining their blood in order to stave off mortality
As every Blood Angels player knows, the Blood Angels have a particular affinity for capes and 1930s haircuts. They also sleep in coffins, or upside down, and their Chapter Tactic is to transform into a cloud of bats
Blood Angels physically cannot enter a building unless invited, and cannot cross running water. The only way to destroy a Blood Angel is to remove the head and stuff them with garlic or with a stake through the heart, lest they rise again as members of the Death Company, as the codex clearly states

To be honest not really, vampires have a lot of baggage, and while Blood Angels have a lot of what I would consider vampire-like qualities they're missing some important ones for what I would consider key to being a literal vampire.
They're not undead, they don't need to feed on blood, they're not adverse to sunlight, they've no weakness to holy symbols.
They do have fangs, they do enjoy drinking blood, they often sleep in coffins, they can appear to be unaging.

Why would they use something as dumb as a dog or a horse for a Servitor? That is 100% a human brain in there.

Best case scenario that's a vat grown human with no higher brain functions controlling it, but it's just as likely to have been a punishment for a criminal, or simply last use for a low level menial, that was no longer able to perform their duty correctly, but whose brain was too valuable to use as corpse starch.

And if they're very lucky, they had their consciousness wiped before being turned into one, and the process to do so worked. If not, they're aware of every agonising second of what's happening, but powerless to do anything about it.

Blood angels are often compared to Vampires, as one of their geneseed flaws compels them to drink the blood of their enemies.
They also sleep in coffin-like chambers between battles... or is it they're turned into Space Marines by coffin-like chambers? I'unno. I'm at work. Can't look it up. Maybe it's both.
They're notoriously long lived for Space Marines (which doesn't make sense as you never hear about Space Marines die of old age. Most people in the canon often wonder if that's even possible)

All marines use the general codex. As far as which supplement to use I believe their parent chapter is officially "Unknown, but suspected Raven Guard."

Ok so assuming this isn't bait and you've just got a serious case of yankee autism.

The Imperium is based more on the Roman empires imperial cult and mystery cults in terms of religion.
Christianity is so dead it's not even remembered.
When the Emperor was still alive and empire building. He was explicitly atheist. Trying to kill the chaos gods by starving them of belief. The chaos gods are the most powerful residents of another dimension. Basically demons and get referred to as such.

Since his sort of death and internment on the golden throne. He's been worshipped as the god of humanity.
The sisters of battle are basically an army of zealots that exist as a loophole to a ban on the Imperial church having "men at arms" because they went full craycray at one point.

There is no good side in 40k.
The Imperiums inhumanity towards man is essential to ensure the survival of humanity.

Explicit Christianity died out long ago in the setting. The short story discussed here: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/The_Last_Church discusses the last example of "traditional" human faiths in Terra. But even that was not directly any real world faith and that occurred 10,000+ years in the "past" of 40k. That's not to say faith has no role in the setting, far from it. "Faith made manifest" is very literal. And certainly the setting borrows heavily from Christian symbology and ritual, especially Catholicism, for a sense of mysticism. But if you're were hoping for a foundation of directly comparable Christian morality? Well, no. The universe is too far gone and humanity is too desperate for that. Religious dogma is largely driven by what will bind together and sustain humanity even a little longer in a hostile galaxy.

Your choices are either the pseudo Christian parts of the Imperium, which is idolatry, daemonic bastards, or pagan / aesthetic xenos.

He is a magic superhuman with a penchant for genetically modifying people into superhuman eunuch soldiers to use as the driving force for a galaxy wide crusade to spread secularism and reunite humanities lost glory. Where Jesus had a message of peace and spoke of himself as the son of God the Emperor kills all who don't follow his vision and absolutely despises religion, especially people worshipping him as divine.

The Emperor explicitly is not Jesus and actually went out of his way to eradicate the remaining Abrahamic faiths on earth while he was still alive. Up until his “death” at the end of the Horus heresy big E was a hyper-potent psyker who built the Imperium of Mankind and attempted to destroy all religion only to accidentally create a cult of personality which took off after his death and eventually became the sole faith allowed within the Imperium (again, excepting the admech because shenanigans)

There are heroes and good guys on the micro scale. Typically people will point to the Lamenters and Salamanders, and honestly in BL books the Sisters are often some of the of the most moral actors in the setting in terms of caring for the common people. However, it is again not universal, and Sisters can certainly good too far in "scourging the heretic." Plus as everyone has said, at the macro top level scale it's pretty much all bad. So it sorta comes down to whether you want to play as the "light in the darkness." There is enough flexibility to 40k that you could play an order of sisters recruited from a world with some vague traditions handed down from dimly remembered christianity. Those could even guide their moral outlook. The Imperium is often "hands off" in how it treats differences in local faiths as long as they venerate the emperor and aren't actively dangerous like summoning daemons or something. But they would be folded into and under the veneration of the Emperor and the wider Imperial Creed. And its important to realize the the Imperial Machine as a whole is monstrous.

Not that hard really. But you need an airbrush or canned paint of the armor color. Handpainting the armor pieces is a fool's errand.
Spray the inner frame seperately from the armor pieces/other shit.
You can choose to spray silver, shade then drybrush or if you're a lazy shit like me, just spray black and drybrush silver.
Then magnetise the arms if you want to swap loadouts. Don't glue the torso or transporting it will be a massive pain.

Depends on the individual store and its manager, and how autistic they are.
Generally that'd be fine but I've heard some stories.

You are correct. The model's attacks are for close combat.

I've vaguely heard the conversion rule for 'official' models is 50% GW plastic has to remain. As someone who just ordered 3d printer rippers I have an important question.

Does the base count in total mass of plastic?

Not really good. They don't have the number of attacks like A.Intercessors have. Their only real edge right now is having a squad with 1 neophyte for the smokescreen keyword on an objective

The 50% rule is pretty old and a bit iffy.
In general though the model needs to be readily identifiable.

just don't get caught and you're fine
Once painted the easiest way to identify recasts/prints is the weight so if you want to make it harder to find the fake just put a large magnet in the base, don't let them pick up your models, or most importantly PAINT THEM
