Anon, nobles that don't qualify to sit on the throne either get killed by it or pilot armigers.
Jesus christ.

Knight houses commonly have the equivalent of trained militia. All they need is the ability to soup with guard without being cucked.
Make it so that in order to not get their penalties taken away they need more than half their points in a superheavy detachment of knights or something.

I don't already have a Daemons army, I have a bunch of Daemon models. Now that Belakor is coming out and multi-god Daemons in a single detachment are going to become more viable, I will turn them into an army instead of building out one god as a detachment for Knights or CSm or something.

>> No.77971876

We're talking about rules anon. Everyone knows cadians suck but you have tons of options to get feudal guard.
Why would you have to rework detachments dude? It would literally be a qualifier to whatever sooperrule knights end up with -like contagions or doctrines- that says more than half of an army's point value/power level needs to be in a knight household superheavy detachment for them to get it.
You play the game right?
You know that every faction in 9th so far has special rules they lose while souping right?

>> No.77971889

Actual things that are FEASIBLE to do and require minimum model-releasing, just rules and text:
>proper traitor guard
>Admech with <TYRANID> rule like brood brothers if your cult creed is <BLADED COG> and you dont have detachments with pther cult creeds in your army
>maybe even let you have Drukhari, Tau and Ork GSCs at the cost of having any of the main non-custom Creeds, because there are examples of that in the lore
>allowing gue'vesa to take some - but not all - IG units too
>Admech with <CHAOS> keyword but yadda-yadda gotta have lets say a Soulforged Pack Specialist Detachment in your army, shit should still be at least somewhat restrictive IMO much like the above
>Kroot HQ and kroot merc detachment for Chaos, GSC, Inquisition, Drukhari, Ork and maybe Craftworld and IG
>also make a generic zoat merc datasheet derived from The Archivist and let it be souped in the factions above much like Agents of the Imperium, people can just use the BSF model
All of this requires just printed text and playtesting with more than 10 fucking people and maybe an upgrade sprue for a kroot HQ. Yet this would change the armybuilding potential of the game dramatically by introducing unique and diverse sub- and cross-factions that are already there in the lore.

Basically war is tragicomedy for them and what matters most is that highest amount of casualties in most fabulous and flashy ways are inflicted. Their skin can change colour like a squid, yet they use it to display most gay technicolour bullshit possible, while also using fuckloads of plasma-weaponry except each one is different, flashing colour.

deldar will definitely be a make or break moment for the edition
So far every faction has been various manifestations of 'tough, elite, strong'. Deldar are flimsy, fast, glass cannons and nothing else so far has been similar to them as an army.

DEldar is definitely going to be a sign of times to come.

How much of a responsibility do you have to teach your opponent the rules? I'm not talking about a new player where you'd obviously tell them how things are done.
I'm talking about people who've been playing for awhile but have apprently never read their book.
I've got a guy in mind, he plays necrons.

We start the game and I win the roll of for first time. He tries to seize the initiative. I tell him that's not a thing anymore.

I hit him with a relic bolt pistol, it's str 5, pistol 1 ap 3 and does 2 damage. If you target infantry it always wounds on a 2 and does 4 damage.

I hit his lychguard and he fails the save, then his fails his RP roll. The guy then pulls two lychguard. He's been assuming that damage carries over this entire time. I tell him that no, it's only a single attack it dosen't carry.

I notice he's been rolling RP not just between units attacking but between separate guns. If I hit him with a something that has more then one profile, he'll pick guys up between guns.

He also rolls the RP for the damage dealt to the unit. If I hit a single immortal with 20 damage, he rolls 20 dice.

I'm sure there are more but I don't know the army very well. Should I just sit down with a rulebook and walk him through it? The guy has been playing for as long as I have.

If there's common stuff he gets wrong every game, bring it up with him pre-match.

Something like "Hey, i've been doing some reading this week and just realised we've been playing [X] rules incorrectly. It should actually work like...".

If you want to avoid awkwardness, you want to make it as conversational as possible and emphasise that you are sharing the responsibility with him for getting it wrong (even though it's actually his fault).

Make sure you have a source to refer him to for evidence - something like Goonhammer or Wahapedia is ideal if he doesn't have the book to hand.

For spur of the moment stuff, the key is to avoid stating they are wrong or implying cheating. Instead, ask if they could check the exact wording of the rule - if they ask why, say something like you saw it played differently in a battle report.

If he's an actual friend, some of this BS might not be necessary and you can be more honest and upfront but it sounds like you might not know him well enough to be sure that would be taken the right way.

It's also the biggest reason why they're a huge pain at a casual level, their shit just works.

From their point of view they probably don't see it that way sadly. Marines are the most-played army by a mile in this game so naturally they want them to be good to further boost sales.

I started reading the Path of the Warrior book, and honestly I am finding Eldar culture to be fascinating, how they experience everything so much more then a human, it completely changed my outlook on them and being space elves, but it kind of baffles me that so little people play them.

Harlequins are cool and are deeper than just space clowns. Used to hate them, now I am fairly positive about them.

Whole bone golem piloted by Internet of the Dead shtick is cool.
Again, using Internet of the Dead to not get assraped by god of tranny sex is pretty solid too.
My favourite has to be though the fact that eldar collectively went on a mass genocide of uncounted amount of xeno races as soon as they heard that tyranids have entered the Milky Way, just to prevent them from reaching said xeno races and absorbing/evolving dangerous qualities like time travel and so on. Cool interplay between two factions.

There is like 8 editions of eldar being at least very good and majority fo those them being borderline OP. But a state when they don't have a codex, but marines have, and marines are better (even when harlequins are beating marines easily) is somehow killing the game.

It is insanity. And to makes matter worse, when they do get new stuff in 8th, the fuckers don't buy it. Marines hog everything, over priced or under priced, doesn't matter it gets sold out. With eldar players it is, wah wah wah it is not the aspected I wanted (aka right now they have shit rules).
