well some changed to reflect their gods color. death guard didn't care for doing a particular color on their armor so they left it off white and then they got sold out by thypus so the rot turned them green. world eaters are covered in so much gore they might as well be wearing red armor. emp kids have to be fashionable or trendy, they probably change their colors every few days. i'm not sure about 1k sons but there is a picture of ahriman having his armor slowly become blue, probably because of tzeentch influence or sorcery.

Well, chaos warbands have never been a super serious threat really. They just don't have the numbers.

Entire faction of spiteful assholes trying to wreck shit.
>>
I think, regarding the last few posts, discussing how to make Orks better - without a serious revamp to 40k as a whole I just don't see it happening.

40k is a shooting game and has been since 5th. Without moving the entire rule set back towards favoring assault I just don't see Orks getting much better. All the bonuses and buffs in the world don't change the fact that armies that focus on shooting are just better. I say this as a long time Ork player who's retired my Ork army for the time being.
>>
>>44987636
Not That much worse One less AP, and and six inches less of range. 10 Marines with bolters is 140 points. 10 Orks with Shootas is half that.
At 12-18 inches vs MEQ:

The marines hit 6.66 times, wound 3.33 times, and inflict 2.19 casualties after saves.

The orks hit 13.32 times, inflict 6.66 wounds, and 2.20 casualties after saves.

If they move to rapid fire range then they perform identically in shooting, except the Ork mob is half the cost.

Unless you're factoring in eavy armour, which makes 10 shoota boyz 110 points

Because nobody wants to read about or play in times where conflicts are happening because the eldar dident stick to the trade embargo the imperium set against the orks for violating their teratorial space while mineing for natural resources.

Anything about how the Necro Decurion is master fluff and no Necron army ever should not be a Decurion.

>>
>>44988226

I think the counter argument would be to reduce the power of the some of the 'top tier' armies as opposed to bringing everything up to that level.

I also think GW doesn't care overly much about Orks because they sell well regardless of their rules so GW doesn't need powerhouse rules to sell them.

Friendly reminder that Necrons got a new starter set and Orks didn't.
>>
>>44988344
No, orks win by getting into melee, using nob bikers, warboss bikers, trucks with meganobs, using boys mobs with KFF and other tricks.

Problem is, against tau they tend not to get to melee, and orks lose most of their forces after the kill any superheavy walker.

Certain players will tell you just to spam lootas, these players should be taken out back and shot for being grots.
>>
>>44988302
>a race known for melee
And yet they are worse in melee than fucking skitarii/mechanicus
>>
>>44988226

I'd argue against it, just on the basis of wanting to reduce dice rolling down to decent levels, and to make positive to-hit reroll effects actually useful for the army.
>>
>>44988352

Ultimately it comes down to the fact that Orks sell. As long as a model range sells its rules are going to be a secondary concern. Consider also that GW fully views Orks as comic relief and doesn't care that they aren't as good as other armies.

>>44988632
Orks
One Painboy or Mek everyone already converts from boyz because there expensive as fuck and not better than what you can make, and they need to move thru their stock.
One unit of 10 boyz with a nob everyone already has enough of or got from endless starter packs that dont sell and they need to move their stock.
One trukk, you know the same thing they add to every ork starter kit because again, most orks convert theirs.

You know what SHOULD be in ork starter boxes?

Like, 85 dollars worth of wheels and broken GW vehicle sprues/imperfect ones. They wouldnt have to melt them down and restart, they could give them to us and we could make our own.

Barrage doesn't ignore cover if you're in cover

This is what a local guy runs and does well well
Hormagaunts, several handfuls
A mawloc or 3
zoanthropes, maybe some of the venom guys for mobile cover saves
Whatever HQ he feels like
Outflanking gaunt mass if he takes hive tyrant
Wants some crones for anti tanks support

Don't forget spore pod things. The more you put in your enemies deployment zone, the less safe they get.

>mfw I play nids

I wish to improve my skills, but I don't know how. Short range means my gants are always within the range of rapid-fire and templates. My whole army must advance to engage the enemy, but that leaves my rear open for deep striking dreadnoughts and other units that I can't ignore, meaning I'm trapped in the middle. I can't keep my zoanthropes, biovores, etc. safe from cc since it isn't hard to wipe out 30 gants. Dreadnoughts kick my shit in regularly since they got 4 attacks, making them better than meleefexes.

Nids have to overwhelm, which is easy as many armies don't bring anything for melee these days. Get there, win.

Being shot at really isn't that big of a deal for nids, you were always being shot at.

A clever trick to defend your deployment zone is a troop or not tervigon with crushing claws. Hide in someting that gives cover and flood your side with little gaunts.

You don't need more than 1 flying hive tyrant, even then his sole purpose is synapse and the upgrade that allow you to outflank a unit (or 30 gaunts) Having these show up the same turn as your mawlocs means your opponent is pretty screwed.
>>
So the sternguard box come with this sexy little bit, but is there any reason for sternguard to ever use it?
For the same cost you can get a power claw, and since you'd have to be pants on head retarded to drop your bolted for a pistol there's no reason not to take the claw (ignoring the fact melee on sternguard is a waste). Makes me sad from a modeling perspective...

Sounds like your not closing the distance fast enough, or simply are trying to max out your units rather than max out the numbers. A single squad of 30 is good, but squads of 10-20 can't get focused as well. Your opponents have to split their firepower.

As a tau player, let me tell you a squad of 30 is laughable, but three squads of 10? Might be tricky to kill.

If anything the rules with the last 4-5 codices have been good. It's just that the majority of codices (all the pre-Necrons ones, which more which less) are not yet in line with the current power-level.
If you look at the Eldar codex you see that it's a great codex, with every unit having its fluffy rule, it's just that most of the other codices are too weak and need to be brought on the same level and the Wrightknight is stupidly undercosted, but that's another problem

Bring more gaunts than your opponent can kill. Focus on tying up units instead of outright killing them. Don't CC dreadnoughts, use your Zoanthropes to kick their teeth in.

60 melee gaunts, 30 shooting, then extra shooting is a good number.

The only reason to take Termagaunts is because there's a monster to spawn them and none for Hormas. Other than that, which you do have to sink points into, Terms have a 12 inch range weapon and nothing to speed them up, whilst Hormas have an improved run meaning they'll get there faster, and do more damage by getting in with their charge.

Presuming you keep synapse up, you now have an annoying tarpit in place to keep returning fire from happening.

Ah, the old "GW intentionally buffs new models to sell them" argument.

Care to explain why the equally large Orkanaut mold has shit rules? How about Flash Gitz? Why didn't they change the Shokk Attack Gun's rules to be better when they brought out a new mold for it? Why did the Tau flyers, who came out same time as the Riptide, receive poor rules and no improvements when the new codex update came? Why Mutilators? (a question I'm sure many Chaos players have asked themselves).

>Although Orks by nature tend to form communities united by common pastimes, even those as simple as wanting to kill things, Oddboyz tend not to. Perhaps it is due to their own idiosyncratic nature, or perhaps they just don't want others musclin' in on their racket. As is typical with Greenskins however there are always exceptions, and few are more potent than the so-called Pain Doctrines, where groups of Painboys come together to conduct massive experiments that would be beyond the scope of any one of them. The first of these gatherings was recorded in M37.288, when the infamous Ork chirurgeon Shakk recruited 3 Painboys as "assistants" and pooled their collective resources to undertake an "upgrade" of an entire Warband. Aided by his grot orderly Kutty, Shakk and his team produced an army of genetically modified monstrosities that over-ran three systems before they were finally halted by the combined efforts of four Astartes chapters.

And this has anything to do with anything because....

If GW writes rules to sell new models, then new models should have good rules. New models that don't completely contradict GW's supposed master plan.

>Ork players don't give a damn about the rules on average, they tend to be modelers first. Chaos is kinda the same way.

Exactly the same could be said for any army. Plenty of Eldar players field beautifully painted armies, as do Tau and Necrons. Army power level has nothing to do with whether a player is a modeller or not. The reason why Ork players are perceived as just being in it for the hobby is because the Ork rules are too poor for someone to be in it for the rules. That just leaves the dedicated modelers, because someone who's in it for the gameplay alone is going to pick a more competitive faction, on average at least. Same for Chaos.

Again, if GW intentionally writes good rules for new models to shift them, why do new models nonetheless sometimes get poor rules? This is exactly what you'd expect if GW thought rules didn't matter, which is exactly what they've said numerous times.

>why do new models nonetheless sometimes get poor rules?
The same can be said about any collectible game. Trading card games constantly bring out new cards but a lot of them are shit to play, even if they're rare/desirable. Usually it's down to either not playtesting enough to realise how bad the rules could be, or justifying the release of it as a desirable collectible, rather than a desirable competitive piece.
>>
>>44993439
>Eldar players field beautifully painted armies
Granted, this used to be true. Now it's just grey scatter bikes and wraithknights

>as do Tau and Necrons
Tau and nercons aren't the painters first choice There's only so much you can do with robotics.

Models were/are being released without their rules. Sometimes you don't need good rules, just a nice model and people buy it.

There's also actual planning going on, GW knows they can't sell but so much to each player each month, for each codex release, ect. So while they release new models, some may not be useful in the current metagame until an edition shift. Suddenly those models get bought as a result.

Rules matter for model purchase, see riptide, wraithknight and knight titan purchase rates. Rules changes make purchase rates shift. Edition changes do the same.

Was this your fluff? If so I really enjoyed reading it.

Not a fan of the random table however, I get the reason behind it but in game effect is annoying.

Why not a 1/2/3 giving some benefits and a 4/5/6 giving others?

Like what good is a Loota Squad with +1 Strength and Fleet and Rage.

Think I'd prefer a power from pain type ability if a chart IS absolutely necessary.
>>
>>44992997
but do they get the +1A bonus is what I'm asking, because the BT also has the Specialist Weapon, or is the +A1 bonus only for two melees with the rule?
>>
>>44993641

Actually no - specialist weapon says you DO NOT get a bonus attack for 2 combat weapons unless both weapons have the specialist weapon special rule.
>>
I like Orks.
>>
>>44993697
I like Orks that's why it makes me sad.
>>
>>44993697
>>44993707

Play Orks? As long as you aren't playing nothing but hyper competitive dicks Orks are pretty fun and with Maelstrom you'll win a few games.

I pretty routinely run Mek themed Morkanaut and I I manage to have fun.
>>
>>44993592
>Rules matter for model purchase, see riptide, wraithknight and knight titan purchase rates.

Of course rules matter, it's just that GW doesn't agree. They think we buy models based purely on appearance. They've said this time and time again.

All that being said, this may be changing under the new CEO. New, more powerful Formations that are web-store exclusive have shown up after codex releases that were a bit behind the top-tier stuff, like the Skyhammer force and War Convocation. So GW may be changing their tune. The real test of this will be when Orks, Chaos and Nids get updated.

>>44993623

>Was this your fluff? If so I really enjoyed reading it.

Yeah, just thought it up now. Cheers!

>Not a fan of the random table however, I get the reason behind it but in game effect is annoying.

Oh I'm not either but it seems to be how GW wants to do Orks. I figured at least I should make the effects passably powerful.
>>
>>44993762
>They think we buy models based purely on appearance.
Some people do, others don't. Not everyone is in the hobby for the games, but not everyone is a great painter.
>>
>>44993762

Rountree (the new CEO) is a pretty interesting guy. Via some of the contacts I still have in trade he is VERY different from Kirby.
>>
>>44993880
Got any speculations on what might change?
>>
>>44993592
>Granted, this used to be true. Now it's just grey scatter bikes and wraithknights

Because if orks were OP the fields wouldn't be full of grey tides.

>Rules matter for model purchase, see riptide, wraithknight and knight titan purchase rates

You mean like how the Riptide went sold out the secont it hit preorder even before the rules were out? Or how in the best seller list you have Tyranids, tacticals and Harlequins?
>>
Where can I find White Dwarf Scans?
>>
>>44994005
Does anyone knows when that is usually updated? Or is it literally "connected" to the selling part so that it's always up to date?
I'm really surprised that there are the Stormfang and the Harlequins on that list

None specifically - that said apparently there is a drive to put products on the wall that move. He basically told his sculpting/tool and die/manufacturing departments that he wouldn't accept 'high quality' as the sole justification for cost. He said other companies are able to produce good models at a lower cost and there is no excuse for GW not to be able to.
>>
>>44994198
You are a bastard. This, with the recent bundles, make me hope for the future. And we all know that Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
>>
>>44994312

I take everything with a grain of slat but when I worked for GW Rountree was a different breed. I met him a few times and he was never a GW koolaid guy. Probably the only senior executive I ever liked. Shared a beer or two with him in Vegas, he was a very honest and real person.
>>
Anyone have the rest of this thing?
>>
I'm really interested in playing 40k now that I have a LGS and some people are playing. Where's a good place to learn the positives and negatives about different races? I know general lore about the Fantasy side of things so I'm interested in Chaos mostly but as far as rules go i'm clueless.

Been giving thoughts a sort of Slaaneshi big bad. A rockstar of sorts. Thinking his goal would be to completely inundate a segmentum with soundwaves, being heard across the Materium and Immaterium alike.

Really tempted to make him Bowie or Dio in Slaaneshi form.
>>
>>44994564
No, they killed Fantasy. And even with the Get Started! deals, the prices are still kinda rubbish.

Fucking god no. Stale memes and shit that is just plain wrong.

It was Kirby, not Rountree.

>the prices are still kinda rubbish
It's still a 40% discount.
>>
>>44994631

If they're solid deals like the Start Collecting ones I won't complain.
>>
>>44994420
Learn the gist of how the game is played, read the Chaos codex and then watch a game or two involving them.
https://www.youtube.com/user/miniwargaming/videos are pretty good and have a series of videos going through how the game plays https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaV3ku2aGOc
>>
>>44994575
Forgot to ask, what sort of Slaaneshi beings would be spawned into existence were there to be concerts that could sing black holes to pieces?
>>
>>44987855
That said, Path to Glory campaigns are a lot of fun if you're in a Chaos-heavy meta. We have six guys in ours (two Khorne, Two Nurgle, Tzeentch and Slaanesh) and so far it's a blast partly because I'm kicking everybodies ass at it.
>>
>>44994587
this is 40k general, not mope about other games general

>And even with the Get Started! deals, the prices are still kinda rubbish.
basically a free unit box out of them. Technically speaking they're better deals than most if not all army boxes GW has ever released (that one tyranid box with the free 'fex comes to mind, but it was considerably more expensive).

>>44994631
I'd be down for it, if they're similarly friendly pricewise.

The damage is still done, Fantasy can't come back. And these new Wulfen models ain't giving me hope for 40k.

It's not a very wild speculation.

Sure but killing Fantasy at the time they did it wasn't a bad thing. The loss in sales is recoverable.

Regarding the Wulfen - I'll wait and see like I do with most GW models. Most of the time the studio paint job makes models way fucking worse.

But the poses are fucking stupid.

The Tau one is hilarious. First GW release new firewarriors and new crisis, increasing their cost to 40€ and 60€ for box. Then, just a few months after, they release a box that contain both and a new plastic ethereal for 65€.

If this is not a very evident reverse I don't know what it is.

40% discount of high prices is still high prices. Take the Imperial Guard starter. If you grab a British tank of your choice from Die Waffenkammer, and a box of Desert Rats from Perry, you'll have more minis than the box, for half the money ($51).

>you'll have more minis than the box, for half the money ($51)

At which point you can just buy green army men if you want shit quantity instead of quality.
>>
>>44994980

For non magnetized I tend to just assemble the model, attach it to its base, base the model (i.e. glue sand on) then prime. I tend to ind priming on the sprue you lose some primer when detaching from the sprue and I don't find blue tac worth it because 90% of what you're priming/painting will never be seen.

For magnetized models I use the same approach, I just prime the magnetized bits separate from the model.

I have no idea, I'm not him. But it's a dreadnought with a shield and an axe, so I made the assumption that he's gonna play it as a Dreadnought with a shield and an axe.

a guy at a shop I stopped in once had those kind of Green Army Men all filed down with 40k arms on proper bases and used the same Green Army Men tank as a baneblade. It was obviously a joke army but he put a bunch of work in it.
