I'm having trouble against my friend's goths. He always takes the tried and true Land Whale hidden in a unit of wrist spike emos and my otaku's just get wiped whenever they get close. I'm curently running basement dwellers and cosplayers with an internet celebrity in each for the extra Ld. Should I just swap these out for neckbeards with fedoras? This losing streak is getting a bit embarassing.
>>
>>34292605

Why the hell aren't you running Closet Nerd Jocks to counter his Emos? Are you daft?

Also, get a Grrl Gamer. It hard counters the Land Whale, and if you run Closet Nerd Jocks, they aren't affected by her Drama Aura.
>>
>>34292605
Have you tried uprading your cosplayers with modded nerf guns? the emo blobs are only there to get the land whale in combat so some ranged instead of latex swords should help you out. I did the same against a SCAnadian army and it works wonders

This nigga.
>>
>>34292605
The answer is really simple.
You need to run a Ruseman and a Social Justice Paladin (Female).
You can easily tarpit the Landwhale and all her goths in a fruitless battle against the Paladin, effectively taking them out of the game.
>>
Dude, no.
Get Sperglords, White Knights, SJWs with a Feminazi HQ.

Make sure they can all get the Privilege Checker rule, real important.
You want your Feminazi to have the relic Strapon Pegirizer and a Smartphone to have your units move further with her ability to issue commands to her Betas

Oh, and if you are running a Internet Apocalypse game, get yourself a load of Headmate slaves. Doesn't matter what you give them, their ego saves are unbeliveable and they have immunity against common sense
>>
>>34292798

Common Sense totally got nerfed ever since 3.Tumblr, almost everything has trigger word common sense and denial now.
>>
>>34292798
Aren't white knights hard to run in low-mid point games? All those points take away from extra units of betas and fedora'd Neckbeards.
>>
>>34292827

Yeah, but you can get a point buy back as long as there's a camwhore on the field, so most people build with one of the whores - attention and crack are my favorite, but it's up for grabs.
>>
>>34292818
Not everything. There are still Normalfags who are vulnerable to this.

I personally run a 4chan army, the classic /b/ and /pol/ raid combo. With the 3.Tumblr update, it's been such a fucking breeze to wreck anything with Trigger warnings and Social Media armies. What gets me are /s4s/ and Janitor/Mods armies. Fuck those.
>>
>>34292798
FFFFFFFFFUCK YOU, Every time I play against a fucking Feminazi HQ with white knights it's like dragging my head against a cheese grater. they get so many free saves and immunities I would swear matt ward wrote their codex
>>
>>34292859

Yeah, but then someone does a Mootdown with sjw!Mods, and your shit is wrecked. It's like you've got to sideboard in ledditors, and god help me if I'm going to use those.
>>

>>
>>34292879

I tried to build a furpile, because I wanted to bring the yiff to bear with the squick multiplier, but their ruleset is fucking bonkers. Who trades mid-tits for hyper cock?
>>
>>34292859
Have you tried adding /mlp/ support? Like they give your squad some decent additional saves. I prefer to give them namefag as well but the points really start to add up especially in low point games.
>>
Any tulpabros in here?
I really like the mechanic of taking a few rounds to generate more allies.
>>
>>34292904
That's because you need HentaiFoundry users to maximize the Hypercocks. Also, if you run John Person as your HQ, all units with huge dicks rule also gain deep penetration and over-load.

It's fucking disgusting army models to run, but at least you can shit on /h/, /a/ and Normalfags

Meh I would run them but they are too reliant on getting set up. The standard /b/, /pol/ or Cosplayer rush will run down your army before you can set up, but some of the tulpa's invuln saves are nuts
>>
>>34292918
I am not running fucking pony models alongside my GuyFawkes Masked Anons. Fuck no. I have a sideboard HQ that gives all brony affiliated units 20 inches around it the Horsefucker rulings, that makes their rolls insignificant gives my units engaged in melee with them +1 to any offensive rolls
>>
>>34292605
Just run a brony swarm. They all have the Sperglord feature that makes them immune to most Land Whale spells.
>>
I personally run hoards of anons in Threads. Each unit of anons has an OP with the faggot upgrade attached to it. Getting off that OP delivers ability rarely happens, but it is a game changer when it does
>>
>>34292944
The term "Anally Rekt" takes on a whole new meaning when a force of Hypercocks run down NormalFags
>>

Eh. I dunno about that. Land Whale might use her 'Desperate Female' ability and Charm the Brony swarm.
Better to not put all your eggs in one basket.

Boring to paint though. All white, all the time.

>>34293069
I do. That's why if I know I'm getting Weabs army against me, I switch my GFMA for /co/mrades in arms. Not the best, but that's what I could afford without going full overkill money wise.

>>
>>34293142
You haven't given them red and black trims? Dude, if you're not running Kool Kids Klub rules, there's no point in full white... Unless your HQ is White Ghost Hidden Black Panther, that converts all your Stormftonters into Blackpower warriors for free AND gives them Niggerism and Hatred: cocasians.

It's always hilarious to see some guy running this against a Stormfront army, but fucking garbage against Tumblr armies.
>>
>>34293309
Get Nigga-Synthesis as well if you run BPW
>>
>>34293321
You can't. Not if you're running Stormfronters that you convert into BPW because of WGHBP. However, I remember WGHBP has the ability to steal any enemy vehicle that has no friendly unit in a 10 inch radius and use it for yourself, and with Niggerism, the vehicle crew gains one additional attack per turn for 1 less dice on attack rolls.
>>
Not OP, but my friend just busted out the most broken army, some sort of /tg/ recursive army, after 3 turns his army fucktouples in size. and its all downhill from there, any suggestions on countering this broken crap?

Yes.

I play Otakus and Neckbeards, but I have serious trouble actually getting my army to do anything. When is the new armybook coming? Having to roll for Apathy for every single unit every round is kind of bullshit, most turns half my army can't move at all.
>>
>>34293647
You are new huh?
Get a female HQ. any one will do. Now you'll have a constant move per round and apathy is then 1 roll for the entire army. You can even get your female HQ to give them an apathy immunity for 1 turn if you fail the roll.
>>
>2014
>not running Obfuscating Philosophers
>not enjoying free saves against fucking everything
You can apply the template to any army for maximum metafuckery!
>>
>>34293679
Female HQ? But that'll force my Otakus to take 3DPD rolls, are you sure it's worth it? I have upgraded them with Dakimakuras, but it still seems risky.
>>
>>34292998
Tulpae are best used as a low investment backup against enemies that want to draw the battle out. You have a regular army of fast heavy hitters and then you force evasive armies to close with you under threat of a late game twilicorn shitting all over their troops if they don't deal with you.

You didn't make them trigger on themselves did you? Amateur.

All you need to do is get one of their units to trigger another one and the entire army will be forced by the rules to tear itself apart.

Anyone noticed /v/ themed army's weakness against the SJW's Sarkeesian? That's so brocken when combined with whiteknights, half of your troops convert to whitenights on turn one and if you don't field a /pol/itician with 'call to raid' the poor NEET's an basement dwellers are all gone in two turns.
>>
>>34293920
You don't want to avoid triggering them. You want them to trigger on themselves. There's literally no way to put together a legal SJW army where it can't erupt into infighting.
>>
Have you tried mounting a fascist on evola's tiger? In my test's it proved to be incredibly effective.
On the other hand this makes mixed /pol/ armies even more complex to run. Most times anarchists/libertardians and authoritarians, NatSocs and facists try to kill each other if the enemy HQ has a annoyance or danger to society worth of less than 20.

Perhaps also some Crazy Cat Ladies, they would open the potential to bring in White Knights and the rest of the Social Justice mob.

I do want to pick up the MadCat though.

Guys. I am running an old-fashioned Trekkies and Superhero Geeks list I have had since the first edition. The Convention Swarm used to dominate the field back in the day, but nowadays I am losing against everything.

Will we ever get a new codex, or are they going to go the way of the Squat?
>>
>>34294449

I think there is still some potential in there.

The upcoming Marvel Comic Universe expantion will hopefully give them a bit more of an edge. I just hope the rumour that they will be combining this book with the Ninja Turtle and Bayformer books isn't true, I hate when I have to buy a large expensive book when I only want 1/3 of it. If that happens I'll just torrent it.

Not sure if they will become tourny viable but in just regular games against others playing for fun I'd imagine things will be okay.

I'd hate to dilute the flavour of the list, but I guess I will modernize and diversify it a little bit. I'll splash in some of those /co/mrades, a few jocks with double identities and maybe a mentally unstable webcomic artist for support.

I'll try to avoid anything from the Hollywood expansion though. The alternate Trekkie rules printed there are shit.

Shitty fluff, but gives cansur to everyone and everything. Basically turns every encounter of 'discussion' or 'serious discussion' into a slaughterhouse of shitpost-based combat.

And afaik there's no real counter apart from mods, janitors and the banhammer.

Maybe add some /g/entlemen. With the 'Deebean' and 'install Gentoo' special rules they shit all over anything remotely casual. Although they might get a stroke when going against gamer guurls and geeky girlys who want to explain the superiority of apple products.
>>
>>34296507
The guantanamo thing is extremely hard to pull off though.
The NSA is very much a debuff-based army. It can shut off most of the buffs and abilities of pretty much anyone, but is almost unable to do any significant damage early game. Most of it is cancelable via Reposts, unless they use the Watchlist debuff, which prevents the Watchlisted unit from Reposting.
Once they hit the late game however, you're fucked. Don't let them pass SOPA, bum-rush them and you should have a chance.

>>34296759
Neo Nazi and IS-beheading channels can catch enough attention for your subscribers to build up some momentum. It also keeps the sjw's out of your business. Pure yt is hard to pull off. It works best in synergies, like using Internet aristocrat and pol troops together, which buff each other. Or the penguinz0-channel with /b/.
If you're feeling funny put /b/ or the penguinz0 fanbase together with pewdiepie, the start rampaging and killing everything-even each other. Sort of instinctive behaviour, risky as fuark but funny as hell.

If you're tossing Youtuber's into an army with no theme you're going to lose.

They are cheaper and get stat boosts when n bigger groups, I can give you that, but that means you cannot combine them with old anon elites or the special newfag rule nerfs them and you have to roll every 3 rounds to decide whether or not they turn hostile. You should just run old anon elites with neckbeard hax0r as heavy support and shitposters as troops IMHO.

What do you guys think of Normalfags? I like that they have lighter versions of a lot of rules like Drama and Rage so they fill up the little gaps in your army as a sort of jack of all trades, but they can't put out a whole lot of damage and they really can't specialize

Pretty much any female unit works as a hard counter to fedora's. Genuine Gamer Girls are too high points cost though because the devs want to keep them rare. Try running a drawfag waifu or something.

I'm aware, but GGG get a cost discount under "Wives and Daughters" with Grognards, and they have devastating effects if you upgrade them with Understanding Boyfriend attachments. I know they may be overcosted, but Fedoras have completely overtaken my FLGS and I want to shake up the meta.
