>TQ: Tell me about an interesting battle scenario? I want a setting and the armies involved, but you can provide as much detail as you like. Example: The Battle for Gate IX

A group of agri world farmers discover a massive circular door. They open it and disappear.
A highly religious SM chapter is passing through the system and they give a sermon to the population, and decide to investigate since they have nothing better to do while they refuel the ship.
Inside the vault they discover a massive underground biosphere covering the entire planet. It's thousands and thousands of miles of ornate hedgerow and shrubbery with strange statues everywhere. Despite how immaculate the garden is is there's no sign of fauna anywhere, and a bizarre thrumming from beneath the ground
They cut through the hedges to investigate and then the statues come to life...

For the gold parts you give it another base (I use a brown tone). If 90% of the model is black, you basecoat black, that's not up to debate.

You smeared that gold everywhere. You probably don't have a steady hand but that's also because you had to fill all the gaps that come with a white prime.

Still very new at the hobby. I don't expect my shit to be perfect, or come even close to matching the smoothness of somebody with an airbrush. The grit effect fades with distance, and my camera sees better than my eyes do, and I've got 20/20.

If I'm gonna completely cover it, the purpose of a base coat of black is defeated, and is only a layer of grime below the surface. I only want the plates in black, it's not pragmatic to base the entire thing in it.

Because it looks cool

It's not just a triangle, that's a reductive thing to say. It's part of the blade, curved and an odd shape. Maybe I can chop a tip off of one of the CSM helmets or a plasma gun for a similar shape, but that seems like such a waste on the later, and I think it's too small a bit for glue not to be noticable.

guise, I'm looking for some tips as to how to make a good army. I asked you for army templates before, and although I really appreciated the help, it turns out that playing something that wasn't made by me is not as fun. The armies were very powerful, there was no issue in that, it's just that the element of making something from scratch was absent. Thus, I would like to ask, if possible, for some guidelines in regards to making something of my own - what to focus on, what to avoid, something never to do, and so on. You were very helpful before and, once again, I couldn't be more grateful to have help in you. Cheers maties

And now you have nooks and crannies your brush can't reach, painted with bright white prime. Again, the pragmatic thing is to spray black and never paint metallics directly on the basecoat. You are new so just trust me on this.

I kinda want to get into Tau, specifically the Farsight Enclaves. I’ve been playing Imperial Fists and Custodes for years, but figured it’s finally time to do a xenos army.

How well do they play? I’m mostly interested in a fluffy army but I want something that can actually win games I play. I played Sa’cea sept a little bit back in 5th, but never got too heavily into their playstyle.

Imagine feeling the need to marine wank in this conversation.

>> No.77673592

No matter what you do, you'll need to secure objectives. That means troops (unless your army can give obsec to other battlefield roles). You can't move onto multiple objectives with a single unit, so you'll need multiple. If you are using multiple troop units it makes sense to put them in a battalion. So you'll need 2 HQs.
Here's the spot where you actually need to decide what you personally want to do. Go shooty? Melee? Deepstrike or transport? Vehicle-heavy? Psyker-heavy?
You choose what you want to do, find the units that do it well and/or simply look cool and find HQs that buff those units.

>> No.77673599

we'll see, for the most part i've hated using soul grinders and defilers. i sold mine maybe last year (though the last game i used a soul grinder in he was chased by some Aggressors he eventually killed and was my MVP).

tau are in a bad spot as the worst army of 9th. farsight enclaves do a little better due to having 2 traits, can take multiple commanders in a detachment, fusion blades, and farsight himself.

Checked, and the longer vertical profile makes it seem smaller. But it's got the extended mag and the scope which really makes it stand out.

None of the bits are an appropriate fit. Drach'nyen was the only reason I was interested in Abaddon in the first place.

That's not the model's fault, you have legit mental issues. Anon be patient, this is an occasion for learning. First go buy some greenstuff. Than cut the bits that is closer to the original piece and glue it. Now fill the gap with greenstuff and model it until it has a flat, even surface.
This is a pretty easy fix and if makes you go crazy you might as well sell all your models on a market, because this hobby is not for you.

Someone please tell me if this is a horrible idea of a narrative game, I still want it to be somewhat balanced.

Daemonic incursion, Daemons vs whoever else.
Whoever else starts with their entire force in the middle of the board, dense terrain . Four objectives in the centre of the four corners, capturing an objective cleanses the ground and makes it so the daemons player cant deepstrike in that quarter of the board.

Daemons player gets 20% more points to play with and splits their forces into three groups as equally as possible. 1st group starts on the board anywhere within 9" of a table edge. 2nd group deepstrikes in anywhere outside 12" of enemy units at start of second round, 3rd group deepstrike in anywhere outside 9" of enemy units.

Daemons win at end of fifth round or on total wipeout, other player wins on capturing all four objectives, daemons cant capture or hold objectives.

I am probably rushing too much but I do have a lot of models left to paint and I worry I will lose motivation if I get bogged down for ages and ages correcting tiny overspills on the basecoat of each model (retarded logic I know but it is very tedious and I always see another spot I missed as soon as I have cleaned my brushes)


I guess it wasn't successful but the pink does have a recess shade of carroburg crimson (on my first one or two models I did an all over wash but I felt it made it too dark and ended up highlighting over all the shade aside from the recesses anyway), the brass/horns have a fleshshade wash and the black and metal are washed with nuln oil.

It just looks rushed. The black barely seems highlighted on the arms, theres pink overflow everywhere (helmet, bolter on spikes and hand), legs near black. The eyes looks fucked as well, if you can steadily paint the lenses then you needto look into doing proper glow eye effects as that is FAR more forgiving and will look good.
You also need to keep in mind unhighlighted black looks awful, and looks even worse when next to a bright color. Just picking out the most promiment edges (knuckles on gloves, raised spikes, edges of pauldrons) with dawstone will go a long way. (when you highlight, make sure you barely have any on your brush).
Not going to lie anon, I would accept this as being someone over 12's first attempt at a model, its definitely not your "best" attempt because a lot of the bad is caused purely by laziness.

This event is what happened to establish the current setting for the crusade/open play games that I play with my friends.
"The Sundering of Kaldor" or "The Sacrifice of the Angels Ascendant", M36.560-M36.568

The Kaldor system exists in Segmentum Obscurus near the Eye of Terror, containing a forgeworld, fortress world for the Angels Ascendant as well as multiple mining worlds and agriworlds.
Over centuries of operating in the sector, Alpha Legion legionnaires have infiltrated the ranks of the Blood Angel successor chapter, and placed sleeper cells in the local PDF, seeking an artefact held by the Mechanicus on their Forgeworld Regis II
Having all their pieces in place, the Chaos Warband fleet tears their way into realspace at the edges of the star system, full speed ahead!
Despite their meticulous planning, trying catch the loyalists with only a reserve of their fleet in-system, the Alpha Legion fell victim to unpredictability in the warp, arriving later than they anticipated, now having to face the full might of the Angels Ascendant's navy
Fighting is fierce over every single kilometer, fellow PDF members turning on each other not knowing who is compromised or not, being bombarded from above by friend and foe alike. Eventually, the agriworlds are burnt to ash, and the mining world's surface blasted to sand.
Slowly each defense line falls, and the continued violence, bloodshed, fear and mass sacrifice of civilians is channeled by the Chaos Marine sorcerers in a mass ritual tearing away the bounds of realspace, surrounding the system by warpstorms, leaving the Imperial forces with no way to call for reinforcements.

Seven years into what is now a siege, and the vast flowery fields around the fortress monastery mountain have been reduced to a glassed, cratered and muddy sea, dotted by the vast hulks of downed battle barges. More Angels Ascendants are falling to the red thirst by the day, still ever paranoid at the ultimate betrayal that brothers amongst them were infiltrators, and that some still may be. On top of this, they are now at a fraction of their full chapter strength, processing only two full companies, formed from shattered remnants of all 10.
The chaos fleet, having isolated the space marines onto their home planet, moved on to secure their prize that is Forgeworld Regis II, Coming across fierce resistance from the Adeptus Mechanicus Fleets, the battle is at a grinding standstil, but nonetheless the Alpha Legion is able to summon piecemeal reinforcements whereas the Imperials have been running on reserves ever since their outer planets were captured. Landing parties are sent out often, but extensive naval presence and anti-air ensures that whatever few ground forces make it to the surface are easy pickings for the Knights of House Thronus Knights and Skitarii.
Despite the Chapter fleet being destroyed, the Angels Ascendant still possess one functioning Battle Barge that was "scuttled" along with other ships that were truly destroyed, harboring it in atmosphere as a last ditch escape route, a formidable artillery platform, and lastly a symbol of the chapter itself. A true last stand for these Angels of Death.
After a uncharacteristic lull in attacking forces, the Angels Ascendant hear a dread screech over the horizon, then two, then a cacaphony of infernal wails that would make even the most pious Imperial Priest quake in fear.

Higher pitched wails are heard as sensors sense an incoming barrage of titan-class missiles, Fortress Monastery point defense turrets point to the sky, machine spirits spinning to life, doing their best to reduce the damage caused by this rain of hellfire.
When the bombardment is ceased and there seems to be a moment of quiet, the first in months, as the smoke clears allowing the remaining Space Marines to see the remaining Alpha Legion Warband recently bolstered, brandishing captured equipment and being backed by the Legio Maledictus Chaos Titan Maniple.
The Angels Ascendant are utterly outnumbered, even as they are frantically preparing to deploy absolutely everything in their armory and vaults, nothing is left on the table. Predators, Land Raiders, Stormravens, their last remaining Thunderhawks, and even a Falchion Superheavy tank. The opening shot of this apocalyptical clash was the deafening roar unleashed by the the cannons of the voidship as lance batteries and bombardment cannons unleashing hellfire, cleaving a titan in twain and heavily damaging half the remaining. Despite that, the titan weapons turn to bear on the ship, sytematically destroying any chance of a repeat of that attack before recentering themselves to bear on the now fully assembled Space Marine force.
The battle appears to be held by the Emperor's Finest, wearing down the remaining titans with the superheavy weaponry, as the supersoldiers clash head to head, their rage and faith overpowering all! A valiant sacrifice made by one of the Thunderhawk pilots as he crashes the damaged aircraft straight into the head of the Warlord, killing its occupants and collapsing the god machine onto a huge swathe of Chaos Space Marines turning the tide of the fight as they begin to rout!

His HUD is filled with pings of warp signatures warping in system, planetary sensors detect multiple landings of army sized forces, as the ground beneath them begins to rumble.
The shaking continues to gain force until even the titans begin to sink into the liquifying earth, swallowing countless friendly marines too, the distant mountains appear to crumble and erupt into molten slag. A massive humming is emmanating from the Fortress monastery, and slowly the local area begins to stabilize, the movement around them slowing to a crawl as the outside planet glows ever brighter, ground shifting wildly appearing as if flowing into the air...

The tech priest retinue streams the data to the Magos, where it can see the feeds of the Chaos fleets being annihilated by the planets that have been detonated by massive tremor bombs planted throughout their center.

Make sure you play in as many phases as possible. You don't need an extremely well rounded army, but playing an extremely one dimensional one is boring and sometimes frustrating. If your list is 90% ranged shooting, include a dedicated melee unit. If possible include a psyker, so you csn interact with the enemy's psychic.
Start with your favorite units, and build around them.
Bring a variety of units. Playing 6 identical units gets boring fast.

You can use them in a separate detachment, but Craftworld psychic powers have the Asuryani keyword all over them except for the offensive witchfire powers. So a long farseer is limited to nuking. Consider using Yvraine instead. She's pretty good herself, and you can freely put her into actual Drukhari detachments without breaking abilities. She has the same issue that the buffing powers are all keyworded. But if all you want is mortal wound nukes you can give her smite and the two witchfires.

If I had to make a bet, I think they'll keep a sorta xenos -> imperium -> chaos -> xenos order for a little while. I would say the order will look like this:

Dark Eldar - Confirmed

Sisters - In a box vs. dark eldar, so it makes sense to release them next to DE

Thousand Sons - Doing poorly, easy codex to update since they don't have many units

Orks - New model teased. Afaik, no other xenos have been given model teasers, so I assume this will be next

After this point, it's hard to speculate. I think they'll release bigger updates between smaller ones to space out the work. So you might see something like:

Imperial Knights (low amount of work) -> CSM (lots of updates needed) -> Tyranids (moderate amount of updates needed)

Knights don't have a ton of data sheets so they're good fodder to sneak in between bigger codices. CSM are likely to need a bigger rework than most due to rebalancing wounds and layering in mechanics similar to Death Guard, and Tyranids need some rules updates, but they don't have the amount of sub-factions CSM have, so it's more of a moderate update.

Dark Eldar, Sisters of Battle, Imperial Knights, Chaos Knights, Ad Mech, Orks.
Dark Eldar is the only one confirmed, Sisters of Battle is extremely likely to come at the same time due to the boxed set featuring the two and because SoB have a new unit. The Knights and Ad Mech are because they all feature in the announced campaign book, plus Ad Mech have a new unit coming. Orks have a new model so its sensible to assume they will get their codex at the same time.

8th edition was completely fine until Marines got their second version codex, and then everything marine related went tits up. 8th always had "that op army" but Ynnari was around a 60% win rate at the height of its power, and so was Knights, while Marines were straight up 85% winrate.
8th edition was ok with special rules, since a lot of power was in memorable stratagems instead of fine print on the datasheets. I had a lot of fun in 8th before the marines overwhelming everything and became the literal baseline of the game (as in, tourney results are now "who is good against marines, who isnt" while marines sit at around a 50% winrate because so many mirror matches happen).
The biggest problem with 8th for me personally was that every balance update was "Everything gets cheaper" which led to ridiculously huge armies. They attempted to fix this at the start of 9th with huge point revisions but then went back on their idea almost immediately.

Don´t get me wrong Stratagems and everything are cool and I don´t mind big armies.

I think this is a bigger problem for people who cant have games consistently. The stratagems being game changing is by design. Custodes Vexilla teleport can be absolutely ball busting and its expensive to pull off. However I agree some armies just have too much access to "auto use" stratagems, stratagems you use every game, take no set up at all and are hard to remember because they have simple effects. Salamanders +1 to wound and Transhuman Physiology (and Duty eternal before it got baked into dreads) being the easiest examples.
Once you know these stratagems however, you dont really fear them like you do the Vexilla teleporter, because there isnt really anything you can do to stop them happening.

The DG box has thirty poxwalkers, but poxwalkers can only be taken in units of up to 20. This means you have to have a minimum of 2 units of poxwalkers.

New DG rules state that you can only have one unit of poxwalkers for each unit of non-HQ DG infantry. Since there is only one other unit of DG infantry in the box, that means you can only have one unit of poxwalkers, so having two units of them isn't legal in matched play.

Your ideas are actually really underpowered anon, if you compare bike guard to normal guardsmen, then you are essentially getting mobility and nothing much else for 2 points. Why would you want guardsmen closer to the enemy anyway? If you need objective holders, then you have scout/armor sentinels.
Your Macro Lascannon battery is weak as fuck and overpriced. You essentially have two slightly better lascannons for double the price and the body is so weak that any amount of firepower will one shot it. It could easily be toughness 5/6, 8+ wounds and be fine when the Basilisk is only 125 points.

The newer marine book ofcourse, Marines were one my armies since mid 7th. My local area was full of people with marine armies so once the new rules hit it became a fucking mess, it was impossible to get a proper game in even when we used the worst units available to us because marines were that retarded.
They are the most common army in tournaments and in local metas by a huge margin (and there is data for that, just look at the recent warhammer community metawatches)
The bigger data is that Marines have more games played that the rest of the armies aside from Crons combined.

The "locking new models in a $160 box" is pure kikery, but on the upside you're playing Necrons, so it'll likely be fairly easy for you to buy the box and find someone who wants to buy the muhreens.

Plus, even though that scatter "terrain" they included is stupid, you could use it in games with your army to show Necrons taking over a battlefield or something.

Depends entirely on the mini. For custodes I glue them onto the base and typically keep one or two arms off to paint depending on if they make painting more difficult. For skitarii only the legs get glues on, the rest of the mini is painted in like 4-5 bits before it gets glued on.

Its good because it means you have to paint everything before you can field it. Its bad because having everything in so many subassemblies is annoying as hell. You can get away with gluing the torso and legs together as well off the base but I find this trickier, though for the method I use, you need to have a way to sort out the torsos so you know which torso matches each set of legs.

You roll the dice, then have to decide what direction the arrow is pointing, but you can't move the dice from where it landed without rotating it. So you have to try and line up the measure stick/tape measure with the tiny arrow on the dice, then move that to the centre of the template (which you will have had to be holding in the air above the targeted models this entire time without moving it).
Then measure along the rolled scatter, replace the template, and then argue about what's now under it.

All with massive parallax error because you can't stand on the middle of the table to see where the real centre point is.
It was impossible to resolve accurately.
It was impossible to even resolve at all sometimes if the template scattered partially onto or over terrain and you can't see where the edges of the template are in relation to models in that terrain.

Something that could have been fixed with a simple if it is under the template it gets hit (instead of the retarded +4 on half base when there is no unified base size etc), got changed in a such a way that it fucked the entire way to play, up to SM 2.0 release, but then GW, in their usual style, took the whole thing in to other extrem. And suddenly it was marines doing horde and showing what effectiv 600W of stuf in a 2000pts game means.

But that is what they do. They "fix" stuff in the most inelegant and hamfisted way possible.

Ok me smart then teach us all, about how GW fixs thing. We will be glad to hear your insight on the matter.

Or do you want examples form prior editions, because I can go as far as 2ed, if you want.

Want to hear about star cannon "fix" after 3ed, or how indestructible falcons were "fixed" in 5th?

Or how GW delt with the GK problem?

Or the codex helldrake problem? Or the codex 2xlashDP/pms/9oblits problem? Or the 3.5 chaos codex "has too many valid options to play with" problem.

Or the hellfire shell gryphon problem?

Or what happened to the 200pts undercosted WK with D class weapons, when GW finaly decided to fix them for the next edition.

etc etc

But don't be daunted friend, explain to us how GW fixs stuff. thread still has space left.
