I've used them, I had a river system with a couple of fords. they were always used as difficult ground except fords they were open.

It was fine, but you don't realize how much it can limit movement and really be an advantage for flying units until you use it. Its good, but try to put some cover on the river edge, either forest or ruins so that you don't end up with a really large open death zone.

Interesting so far. Need to see the plague company rules. The support characters are one of the main things I find interesting, so seeing which plague companies buff up which support characters will be important. The plague surgeon, for example, has the potential to be quite strong if they allow it abilities similar to the apothecary, and if Mortarion's Chosen Sons get to keep some sort of buff to him, he might be an auto-include. Will also be interesting to see if you can get some of the more powerful relics they'd added in psychic awakening.

Will also need to evaluate the HQ rules we haven't seen so far. The lord of virulence seems very underwhelming with many conditions necessary for his ability to do anything. If the lord of contagion's ability is something similar to what it is now, and neither of them get the re-roll 1s aura, I don't see them being very viable when you can have a chaos lord that now has all the DG goodies for 85 points. The lord of contagion got some play because you could give him that 1 cp strat to give him the re-roll 1s aura that was added in psychic awakening, but I don't see that in the leaked strats. My prediction is that they'll be interesting picks if they have the aura, and largely passed over if they don't.

It looks like a completely different faction with some of the same units. MUCH bigger focus on infantry now. The stratagems all try to buff plague marines or terminators. I will probably stick to pic related and go from there.

Why would space marines fight sisters of battle?
Would this make sense, the sisters receive adeptus ministorum orders from higher up (the sisters not knowing that the guy that sent them is currently corrupted by a chaos demon) to purge a group of space marines that are planning on joining chaos. Since this is the 40k universe few questions are asked and the sisters encounter the marines and a battle breaks out.

The poxwalker restriction seems a bit strange but I think that will probably be lifted if you have Typhus in charge. They look surprisingly hurty for being so cheap, them getting plague weapons and the like seems real fun and I like both their stratagems they've revealed. I love the bloat drone intervention and the damage spillover strats they seem like they're gonna do some nasty work. Most of the strats so far just seem to be Core based so I'm hoping the plague fleets get unit focused ones for their preferences too. Mortarion looks scary as hell I might need to actually get his ass painted finally. Warlord traits look excellent, arch contaminator is a bit of a nerf I'm a lil sad about but it was very expected, that shit was auto include. Plus I think its loss of interaction with daemon engines is gonna be more mitigated by the engines actually being able to hit things now.

I'm really excited honestly. Shit looks proper nasty so far and I'm eager to see more. I'd like to prepare up a close combat squad or two in anticipation of some good assault times. Also the special plague/virus weapons sound dank, I feel like it's gonna be extremely scary to put one on something like a foul blightspawn, a deathshroud champ, or a LoC if he can get in.

One of my friends keeps playing competitive Necrons into my fluffy CSM and it's causing friction between us. The gap in army quality is fucking staggering, every time I bring multiple defilers he bitches and moans about my list being overpowered, so I don't do that, but out of 9 games played since the summer, i've won 2. I'm at the point where I think our games are unfair and pointless as they stand.

I want to keep playing 40k as a game, and I've been trying to get my friend to tune down his army, but Friend sees 0 issues with his list and insist its not competitive, meanwhile there's competitive articles suggesting people play exactly what he's running. He's basically pushing every conventional trick in the Necrons codex for close range Necrons, and insisting 'melee necrons are bad, its just a meme bro'. It's really oppressive and obnoxious, especially with how nonchalant he acts about winning, and with how little he does to try to make games fun between us.

At this point 40k discussion between us quickly degenerates into pointlessness. I want to play a game, but want him to tune down his list, he doesn't want to play games because he thinks I'm retarded for wanting him to turn down his 70% winrate build, and I'm at the point where I basically won't take no for an answer.

If you absolutely must keep playing this guy, try using the games as practice. Bring a bunch of infantry that doesn't really kill stuff and try to win on objectives.

Throw stuff at the wall until you get something interesting, then organize it into something that can be clearly conveyed in a paragraph or less.

Point out the win rate, and explain that non-competitive games aren't fun. If he won't tune down his list, tune up yours, and if he whines tell him tough shit, or if you wanna spare his ego tell him you need every advantage you can get because he keeps beating you. You can also ask him to swap armies for a game, and then absolutely crush him with his necrons so he gets the picture, helps if you can mercilessly blow him out so it really hits home. If none of that works, he probably has autism or maybe you do.

Not with Reapers. They zone out all my shit, and without the wound update, it's the most efficient battleline in the game against CSM he can possibly run. Assault 2, strength 5, ap 2, with 12 inch range, that can have its range enhanced, and its movement enhanced.

He's threatening max bolter range with Reapers, between a bonus to his range, bonuses advance, and the weapons being assault. Advancing from 24 inches and just killing units of 24 inch range dudes with Reapers is basically core to his playbook and he's caging me out with hyper efficient guns on 13ppm obsec models.

The only good Destroyers are all melee too. Lokhust is a meme.

His build is basically the Novokh one posted in Goonhammer competitive article yesterday. Scarab, Reaper Warrior, and Skorpekh spam, with a Command Barge. We've been mostly doing 1k, some 2k. In 2k, I do a LOT better because I have a lot more range to play with, my Engines dont get charged on turn 1 or 2, and I can focus firepower on problem units, but said friend won't play 2k. I think 1k is a broken format, and he's playing a build that abuses the FUCK out of the small board size, while I'm basically at its mercy.

>>76985617
Yeah, I guess, but he spams Scarabs, and a lot of the times, the lanes on the maps where I need to push my Daemon Engines are completely clogged.

He completely cages me in by denying me space to manuver my Engines with scarabs, blocks their guns really quickly, and then uses the Reapers to zone out all my infantry. I can win some deployments if I put Terminators in front of the Engines viably, but that only works in 2k.

The fucked thing is that he's usually the casual, and historically I'm the powergamer. I'm really tipped off to the fact that the match is really fucking unfair.

He insists his build is casual, and that he's just playing what he wants, but his build is circulating as a competitive build currently, and I think he's really blind and deaf to the fact that maybe the models he thinks are cool, are also oppressive and antifun.

I actually think its because he's not taking the game seriously, where the problem arises. He's just playing whatever the fuck he hears is good, and is fun, putting generally less time and effort into the game than I am. He's pretty good at games, and by having a much better list, he's just gonna win most of the games.

The Danganronpa Nukige had the best twist. We knew the entire thing was an attempt to get Ultimate children to have non-stop sex, breed and produce more Ultimate children from the start so the fact that Abe was heading the project isn't the big twist. The twist is that the project was more successful than initially believed. Not even the infinite energy battery of Alter Ego's laptop compares to this success. The trapped kids aren't the original trapped kids. You're their identical descendants many generations down. They've successfully mastered breeding and genetic selection to the point of producing identical appearances and personalities with desirable traits from other children. The reason your Makoto can read minds in School Mode is because your Makoto is also a descendant of Sayaka who turned out to be psychic after all. Your detective skills came from being Kyoko's descendant too. The cast all possesses traits from the original children. The nukige doesn't clarify how inbred everybody is or if anyone you've been screwing happen to be blood related.

The other guys main point was that deathguard/nurgle had a lot of characterful models that really explored many aspects of the faction, so that why I only mentioned characters.

Well for starters just look at 2nd Ed tyranids compared to modern ones. Even units like hormagaunts and tyranid warriors looked very distinct. They still followed the tyranid template (6 limbs, etc) but they didn't all look like the same shit at different sizes. Modern zoanthropes, biovore/pyrovore/exocrine and haruspexs have distinct designs, but most other tyranid units look very generic considering they're supposed to be breed specifically for a role.

It's a really dumb rule anon, I'm with you here. Having 1 psyker is fine, but there's little reason to have 2 dedicated psykers in a DG list, so it's basically pick a lord + a malignant plaguecaster in most DG lists. Lame. They should've made daemon princes a one per army limitation, and then let you take a lord as well, much like space marines can have both a captain and a chapter master. Even with that, they're less impacted by this because of a wider variety of support characters. It really limits the DG HQ slot, and is very disappointing.

You're allowed one of each option for every 5 plague marines in the squad.

There's several setups depending on what you want them to do, though Tyrants aren't stellar right now.

Wings+Dev+Scythe is pretty good, though that role right now is kind of filled with a Dimech
Don't run HVCs on a Flyrant, Blast stops you firing in melee and wings exist to get you to melee.

>Flash Outbreak (2 CP) is potentially the most busted Stratagem in the book. You use it in the Command phase to give a single <Plague Company> unit in your army all of the contagion abilities that other <Plague Company> units have until you next Command phase, and also until then your army counts the battle round as 1 higher for your Contagion abilities. This means you can take a Miasmic Malignifier or Hellblade in an army of Ferrymen, then use this to give them The Droning for a turn with a bonus to their range. On a Hellblade this means you can shoot the unit into the enemy deployment zone, then halve the Movement of all enemy units within 3” for a turn.

Yeah it's better than a TH imo. It's got -3 ap rather than -2 ap, the anti-horde profile with no minus to hit, and plague weapon. The str of the weapon is a bit misleading though. It's str 7 on Typhus, and a TH is str 8 on most SM units, but the -1T aura balances it out, so against a T4 model, it's S7 vs. T3 or S8 vs. T4, basically a wash.

A unit within 3" of an objective can do an action that you haven't already done this action on.
If they do, you pick, either try and roll a 4+, or just have the unit doing the action take D3 mortals for an automatic pass.
If you succeed you immediately get 3 points.

Terminators can deep strike. Interestingly enough, rhinos have the bubonic astartes keyword, so a couple of those with 5 man plague marine squads inside might be able to get some work done on it. You could drop off the plague marines somewhere and then advance the rhino somewhere else.
