Not Homebrew Bread edition
fucking dropped

Is the dreadnought formation from Space wolves good?
>>
>>45041874
Homebrew Ork Psyker time!

Current point of contention is (I believe) the 1/army upgrade. It's there to allow orks to get some consistency on their known powers, as well as more dice to throw.

It's already restricted to 1/army, on a level 3 Psyker that only knows Big WAAAAAGH! powers.

Options are
- Choose 1 power and generate more dice based on number of nearby units
- Level 4
- Reroll known powers

Any suggestions?

>>
>>45041947
I'm going to list the number of characters that I can think of that are Mastery Level 4.

>Eldrad
And Eldar over 10,000 years old, being on the path of the seer the entire time. Is actually dying of old age, despite being a god damn Eldar. Was powerful when he started around 12,000 years ago.

>Ahzek Ahriman
A Sorcerer that has been Sorcering for another 10,000 years. Currently Tzeentch, the God of Sorcery's, main man in the mortal world.
Gained power by turning his followers to dust and absorbing their powers.

>Fateweaveer
The most Sorcery Sorcerer deamon around, literally made from the most sorcery part of the God of Sorcery.

I think that's it, actually.
Point is, Mastery Level 4 is not something you can slap on the table without 10,000 or so years of psyker dickery, and it devalues the homebrew as a whole.
>>
>>45042037
God, that's terrible. I just looked over those weapons. A 27 point Crisis suit will put out more firepower and be more mobile with the only downside being that it's not immune to bolter fire from the front. That's a very small downside for the benefits though.

Those should totally be 35 points, if not less.
>>
>>45042083
Do people get confused with Blitz Brigade often?
>>
>>45042122
Quite often actually.
>>
>>45042122
Used to, its still a point of contention
>>
>>45042122
usually some autism as to charging after the scout move and the nebulous definition of player turn vs game turn
its actually very clear cut and easy to understand for someone with basic reading comprehension
>>
>>45042110
That's what I was told.

But I want some semi-reliability towards knowing at least one power, and having 1 be selected caused one guy in the last thread to have an aneurysm.

What would you do? With the powers being so different from eachother, you could get really fucked.
>>
>>45042080
Make it a level 2 that can upgrade to level 3, give it a unique pair of schools or a dual-school like what the eldar have. Price them fairly low so as to be competitive with a warbos, give them a bunch of options for customisability, give them a warp field for 4++ or something, etc. Don't just give them level 4, thats lazy, level 4s are characters who manipulate reality like playdough and are major players on the galactic scene, not generic weirdbosses

>Homebrew edition

Hmm...the only homebrew idea I've had lately was giving Sisters of Battle access to a Land Speeder Storm variant as a transport, with a few weapon restrictions and different vehicle equipment.

Of course, that'll only matter once I actually bite the bullet and but into them, and even then I'm not sure how fluffy it would be for them to even use landspeeders.
>>
>>45042160
I wasn't going with 4. I want them to be able to be a generic level 3, and 1 guy per army can get better control over his powers and be a pseudo-wurrzag.

Is choosing 1 of his powers too much?
>>
>>45042168
That is really bad. I still think 35 might be fair, if only because they can get rokkits for free and have decent melee weapons, but 50 is waaaaay too much.
>>
>>45041932
No one?

>>45042148
Pick a power for 10 points.
Generate new powers every turn, like old Wierdboyz.

Thats the ceiling. I just read it after your changes, its fine now.
>Is choosing 1 of his powers too much?
No, it just gimps him, let him roll on a unique school and get three powers+focus like what many armies have, with six unique powers that arent all shit like the current one.
>>
>>45042214
I woulda said 35 before I learned that they dont even have DCCWs anymore, i'd put them at 25-30
>>
>>45042242
Yeah, reading over it again I think 30 is more fair. I think I'm overestimating the value of Rokkits. Maybe a bit less, but it's just staggering to think that they might cost double what they actually should.

Non-vehicle marines in the CSM codex gain "Let the Galaxy Burn!" Once per game, each unit with Let the Galaxy Burn! may choose either to fire all ranged weapons it would normally be able to fire twice in the shooting face, or to double it's initiative characteristic and charge 6+d6 inches. Units that fire twice may not fire in the next friendly shooting face, or overwatch in the next enemy turn, and units that charge 6+d6 inches may neither consolidate after an assault this turn nor charge in the next friendly turn.
>>
>>45042285
This.
>>
>>45042214
Did the math, and I'm getting them somewhere around 42.

AV 11, but weak on one side
>8
2 Hull points, times two.
>16
Strength is 2 above the magic average of 3
>18
A second attack at strength 5
>21
WS low by 1
>20

Big Shoota
>25
Klaw that's AP2, strikes before I1, and hits at S7
>45
Cowerdly Grots is a 1/3 chance for Crew Shaken, can be mitigated entirely by a large unit and a nearby Deff Dread
>42

The lowest I can see them going is 40. For that price, you could get a Space Marine with a Powerfist, which strikes after the Kan, and also can die to bolters, poison, ect.
>>
>>45042308
that's actually a fine idea. Don't even play csm, but this makes them sense.
>>
>>45042306

I have this urge to run a Lion's Blade Strike Force with some Ravenwing bikers in the auxiliary slot. How do they fare on the tabletop?

Did you work on the Tau or Eldar Codexes, by chance?
>>
>>45042403
Yeah cause thats about the equivalent of Scatbikes/Wraithknights/Tau Formations
>>
>>45042403
Assume they also made a new plastic warbike model at the same time, its about the same level of favouritism, yes.
>>
>>45042326
The Klaw is still only striking at Initiative 2, which is very similar to I1 against many targets you'd use it against. Consider as well that the Marine has WS 4, while the Kan only has 2, meaning that the Kan is rather likely to miss with its attacks. It's also only Strength 7 rather than 8 like the powerfist, which is rather significant due to instant death.

The individual parts are okay when looked at in a vacuum, but when you take them together it doesn't sync up well.
>>
How do you fix assault?
>>
>>45042360
30 point warbikers is actually fair. (boyz pay 12ppm for them too)

5 point Klaws are not.
>>
Are 4 Thunderwolves equipped like this acceptable?
x2 Chainsword + SS
x2 Wolf Claw + Bolt Pistols

They will be accomponied by Harold for the Furious Charge, Leadership, Counter Attack rules. I figured Str6 on the charge would be good enough to handle most things, might give the leader Melta bombs
>>
>>45042472
Get rid of needing assault grenades to charge through cover, make standardcharge distance 6+1d6", make it possible to make a disordered charge out of deep-strike, and make disordered charges the current 2d6".
>>
>>45042501
nope
cut the wolf claws, one thunder hammer, and SS all around
>>
>>45042473
>>45042360
Nobz down to 17 per model.
Warbikes down to 16 per model.
Warbikes need to be a little more expensive for Nobs, since that extra toughness and 4+armor is also buffing a second wound.
>>
>>45042528
Kinda figured wolf claws were ass, oh well. Would you recommend any Power Weapons? Or just rely on Rending Chainswords?
>>
>>45042473
5pt klaws OR cheap warbikes is fair, not both together
>>
>>45042472
Remove overwatch except for d3 wounds from flamers and pistols.
>>
>>45042562
just the chainswords, power weapons are unnecesary expense
>>
>>45042473
Klaws should not cost the same as power fists as the klaw is on a MUCH more fragile unit

Make klaws like 15 points
>>
>>45042562
Keep them cheap, no need for frills when you can take a hammer and a wolf-lord. The other guys are bullet catchers.
>>
>>45042568
CheapER klaws and half-price bikes is what they need.

Say, 15 point claws, 15 point bikes?
>>
>>45042511
Doesn't make sense, a disordered charge would still average at least 7. You'd want disordered to be d6+3 or something.
>>
>>45042600
Oh, and 'Eavy Armor standard. Now Nobz are kinda OK.
>>
>>45042605
Pretty sure disordered is -2 to assault roll
>>
Does the Imperium differentiate between heresy, blasphemy, and infidelity? Also, is there any practise similar to excommunication?
>>
>>45042657
The ecclesiarchy would differentiate between blasphemy and heresy. Infidelity is never touched on because there is only war.

Excommunication exists. The traitor legions are Excommunicate Traitoris, for example, and I'm fairly certain the Inquisition uses similar terms when talking about traitors in their ranks.
>>
>>45042326
A Crisis suit is probably a more straightforward comparison, since they share very similar stats.

A Crisis suit with a Burst cannon is 27 points, which gives them a similar gun as well.

The main differences are that the can has an AV, though a rather weak one. For the average 12 S 5 hits you'd need to glance a Kan to death, you need 9 against a Crisis suit, assuming it gets an armor save. This is a fairly small difference when you consider that the Kan also has vehicle damage to worry about.

As well, a Crisis suit has a Jetpack, offering it much more mobility with its firepower. A Crisis suit will be taking less damage simply by jumping into and out of cover while firing, while a Kan will have to take whatever damage coming towards it head on.

From there, the last big difference is having a high-strength, AP 2 close combat weapon. While this is certainly a nice benefit, its main use will be against vehicles that won't be swinging back.

In comparison to that, a Crisis suit with a Fusion blaster is 32 points, and has AP 1 compared to the 3 of a Rokkit or the 2 of a close combat attack. It has the Melta rule and is much more likely to take out a vehicle, and doesn't need to charge in to do so.

I think 35 points is perfectly fine, gaining a bit of durability and melee capability in exchange for a lack of mobility and having worse guns.

>>
>>45042746
If they removed, or at least lessened the effects of, Cowardly Grots, 35 sounds good
>>
>>45042605
It was intentional. Assaulting from deep-strike really isn't too bad, though it should still have some risk involved. Having it retain the 2d6 means failed charges are much more possible, especially if difficult terrain or scatter goes poorly.

The guaranteed charge distance is to add in predictability so you have something to rely on. The 2d6 for disorganized is to make it more of a gamble and something that can go south.
>>

>>45042843
I'm asking because I want to know why people like the faction they pick, because I'm still choosing an army and it's between those.
>>
>>45042774
>>45042792
Maybe change Cowardly Grots to only fail on a 1 instead? Or make it so you can choose to have them make a Fall back move instead of getting Shaken.
>>
>>45042326
Let's see the difference with FAXIV:

Walker base: 30 points
+1 AV: 35 points
-1 Hull Point: 30 points
-1 WS: 27 points
Bolter: 30 points
S7AP2 Melee(Offset by WS2/I2): 40 points

Oh hey, we both came up with the exact same numbers, through different systems. I really like to see when something like this happens, because more than one person coming to the same conclusion bears a lot of weight on how accurate the estimate is.

They're still way the hell overcosted, and let's also assume that if you want to sell moar models, you need to have the actual points cost below what it's worth to the player. So ideally Killa Kanz should be either 35 points to make them mildly powerful, or 30 points to make them an "Auto-take, buy a shit-ton".
>>
>>45042873
Don't pick orks if you want to get a start.
You're gonna have a lot of painting to start off with and probably lose a lot.

Do yourself a favor and get any of the 3 but Orks haha, they are in a horrible spot right now, the other three are the 1st, 2nd, and 3/4th top codexs. I would say Necrons cause they're interesting to me.

>cowardly grots

>>
>>45042913
I agree completely. However I'm also of the mindset that it's complete bullshit that makes the squad utterly worthless. If I were to update the codex, I would make them 35 points, and remove Cowardly Grots entirely.

To quote the goddamn rulebook:
"Vehicles are immune to all morale checks. It is generally assumed that the crew of vehicles has absolute faith in the ability of their armour to protect them"

This should obviously still apply to Grots, who are made as big as Gazhkul when they're put in a Killa Kan.

>>
>>45042936
I think the idea is that Grots, having poor leadership normally, would lose the faith in their armor when they see another one next to them blown up.

That said, I think it should only fail on a 1 or have the bonuses be increased to +2. That means that the squad won't break as long as there are 3 of them left, or if a Deff dread is nearby threatening to Krump them.

Then the only worry is if you have a squad away from the Deff dread that falls below 3 models, and even then it'll still be a rather low chance.

They are universally loved by the fanbase for a variety of reasons. They're goofy as hell, and great comedic relief from a setting that's normally well known for literally being the origin of the phrase "Grimdark".

Orks have free reign in their fluff to do basically whatever the hell they want, and it will simply just work. Do you want to play with the entire collection of awesome cars from Mad Max? Go right ahead! Do you want to put LOOTED CARNIFEXES on the table? Go right ahead! Do you want to have an overall great laugh as the other players insist you have to yell "WAAAAGH!" in order to actually call a Waagh?

Because I have actually convinced the LGS' Ork-Bro that he literally has to say WAAAAGH! in order to call a WAAAGH in the game. It's hilarious, and oftentimes many people in the store will gather around to join in with the WAAAAGH when it's time to go!

Rokkits used to be much better when they could conceivably blow up a vehicle, you know, back in 5th edition. When Kans got updated it was like the rules writers were still operating back in the days of Kan Wall, without realizing that that died a long, long time ago.

What annoys me is that a Nob on a Warbike with a Power Klaw is 70 points. That's the same price as a Thunderwolf Cavalry with a Thunderhammer. The Thunderwolf gets:

>+2 BS
>+1 Strength
>+1 Initiative (largely irrelevant though if both have unwieldy)
>+1 Attack
>+2 Leadership
>3+ armour save vs 4+
>Krak grenades
>ATSKNF
>Acute Senses
>Counter Attack
>Concussive attacks

The Nob gets

>Mob Rule (ha ha ha)
>Furious Charge (but because of the way PKs and Thunderhammers are calculated, TWC strike at Str 10 whilst Nobz go at Str 9, and then only on the charge)
>3 Twin-Linked Str 5 Ap5 shots at 18 inches vs 1 Str 4 Ap5 shot

The nob atually has the 4+ cover, and only has a 3+ if he flat-outs.

TWC are too cheap for what they have, and PK Nob Bikers should cost ~45 points.
>>
>>45043166
That does seem very odd. Even at a cursory glance, Warbikers are 18 points each just like the Nobs, and the Nob boss is only 28 in that squad. Making warbikes even half the price means you're looking at 31 per Nob Biker, with the main benefit being more strength and an extra wound compared to Warbikers.

On a different not, is there any reason why Craftworld Eldar wouldn't use Splinter weapons or for Dark Eldar to not use Lasblasters and Shuriken weapons. The Corsairs use both.
>>
>>45043280
Dark Eldar likely prefer the suffering caused by poison as opposed to the cleaner kills Shuriken and lasers cause, and also might be unable to make them properly work without the minor psychic abilities.

Craftworld Eldar might not like Splinter weapons out of some respect for tradition or just not having access to the proper poisons, with wraithbone being more common for shuriken weapons, and lasers requiring less reloading. Splinter weapons might have more limited ammo, which matters less to Dark Eldar Raiders, but more to Craftworld Eldar who might need to make a prolonged defense.

That said, considering that they're battle brothers, it would be very easy to mix the two and fluff one as the other. Some Guardians as Kabalites using Shuriken weapons, or the other way around.

how do you guys feel about someone making their own units? I really want to make a Dark Eldar cruise yacht out of an old toy. was thinking hull mounted weapons on each side like a battle ship, a special hammer of wrath attack, and transport capacity of 20

12/12/12
Skimmer
Fast
Open top
HP5
hull mounted side guns
3x per side, str 8 ap2 lance blast

Aethersails

Transport capacity 20.

-Repelling party
when charged, if you have a troop in transport, you may unload them front of your yacht, engaged with the enemy models.

Prison Schooner-
When your vehicle passes over a enemy infantry unit in the movement phase, D6 Models within the unit must make a weapon skill check or be removed as a casualty.

As opposed to Killa Kanz that are blatantly overcosted in every possible way?

As opposed to playing a literal bottom-of-the-barrel army that struggles to play well even with optimized lists against middle-tier armies?

I'm sorry, but anyone who complains about Orks doing stuff like the Dread Mob list is an insufferable dick. Even with 35 point killa kans, they're not going to be all that hard for you to deal with, but the Ork Player gets to bring more. What can possibly be so bad about that?

What, exactly, do you think has changed between 6th and 7th edition to make Killa Kans 15 points more expensive? What rule changes have taken place that would justify the price difference?
>>
>>45043476
Killa Kan point costs are 4th edition, not 6th.

Secondly, I guarantee you are using the updated 7th edition rules for your upgrade yet choosing to use 4th edition prices, am I right? I know I am don't bother answering that.

So why do you feel justified in picking and choosing anything because its what you feel should be used? It brings me back to my previous question, why don't you just pick and choose from any codex, from any ruleset?

It's actually using the updated 6th edition rules for the Dread Mob Orks.
http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/resources/fw_site/fw_pdfs/Warhammer_40000/Ork_Dread_Mob_Army_List_Update.pdf

It lists Killa Kans as being 35 points per model, and also explicitly lists killa kans in the Dread Mob as using a different ruleset than in the original codex.

Technically these are "Dread Mob Killa Kans".

The "updated" and no longer available list. So he's using outdated, no longer valid, old point costs for a model and yet still not seeing why it's a douche move.

He's probably buying grot riggers for 5 points and then using the 7th edition rule set for it, which is IWND. That's what I was stating.

Then pick the battle force, it's a good start, from there you can begin to plan on what to focus, jut get a farseer and you have the core of your army ready to begin.

Fitting as in good, or fitting as in what GW would actually do?

Because the Ork one is going to look like this:

>Warband (1+)

>1 unit of Nobz or Meganobz
>1 Big Mek
>6 units of Boyz
>1 unit of Gretchin

>Command Benefits:

>>45043569
>He's probably buying grot riggers for 5 points and then using the 7th edition rule set for it, which is IWND. That's what I was stating.

And like I said, I'll run the 4th edition rule for Grot Riggers every time, even when it was worthless on Killa Kans. 5 points for IWND on a 2 hull point 11 AV walker is quite fine by the way.
>>
>>45043558
Orks probably need an Eldar style one that has a wide variety of Core formations. One with lots of Boys for a Green Tide, one with Bikes and buggys for speed-freakz, one with more walkers for Dread-mob, and whatever else they can center a Ork warband around.

The side formations would be various specialty units to add onto that.

Dark Eldar could go for something more focused, with a single core contingent that forms the basics of a Raiding party, with kabalites, Raiders/Venoms, Archons, and other fairly straightforward things. Then the extra formations would focus either on the gladitorial half with Wyches, beastmasters and the like, or the homonculi covens.

Chaos Space Marines basically needs 3 more Decurions all along the lines of Khorne Daemonkin, with an army-wide benefit that's as cool as Blood Tithe, different unit sizes, but the requirement everything take Marks.

I feel like Dark Eldar and CSM are hard to do because of how vastly different they could be. A warband of Khornates would play completly different to a warband of tzeetchian follower. Similar problem with Deldar, A wych cult will play differently than a kabalite warband which will be vastly different than a haemonculous coven.

Yeah. If we're going what GW might actually do, the CSM decurion is going to be:

Black Crusade (1+)
1 Chaos Lord
1 Unit of Terminators
1 Sorcerer
3 units of CSM, Berserkers, Noise Marines of Thousand Sons, depending on the mark of the Lord
2 units of Cultists

And give everyone a free roll on the fucking boon table or something.

>>45043618
Like I said, he can choose to play with what he wants but at least be consistent in it, otherwise why doesn't he just pick and choose any of the rules from any of the codexs and just use them? That is essentially what he is already doing, only point I'm making.

>>45043622
Sure, see above. Why not use 4th edition furious charge too while you're at it? You're already picking and choosing, why not just go a bit further with it?

And just so you know 4th edition grot riggers was a 4+ to remove immobilised. But as you only seem to play with what you feel, then go ahead, just don't pass it off as valid to other people.

>Command Benefits
>All models with the 'Ere We Go! special rule that roll a 10 or higher on their charge distance (after modifiers) gain the Hammer of Wrath special rule. Models that gain Hammer of Wrath in this way strike at their base initiative instead of Initiative 10 (Orks ain't that fast!)

CSM needs a lot more than just the decurions. Go take a look at the KDK book: All the daemon choices are better than their equivilents from CSM, sometimes far, far better. The base units themselves are trash, and the entire faction needs a 5e DEldar style reboot, of both rules and models.

And it's never going to happen.
>>
>>45043558
>>45043640
In terms of benefits, Orks would get some sort of twin-linking and a bonus to initiative on the charge, either during waaghs or just on specific types of units.

Dark Eldar would treat the turn as 1 later for Power from Pain, get to re-roll on combat Drugs, and add 1" to any movement they make.

>>45043670
>don't pass it off as valid to other people.
I literally said i use it as a home rule and everyone is fine with it, just like normal rules for BA dreads and scouts. There is no picking and choosing, its us changing the game so i'm not unfairly gimped
>>
>>45043699
Agreed, they need a massive overhaul rather than a simple Decurion to fix them. I will say that Khorne Daemonkin at least feels fluffy though, and I would like to see the other 3 get a similar cool thing.

Which i knew. And which was fucking useless in 4th because immobilized units in squadrons counted as destroyed. And I would still take it if it meant that I could use the 4th edition Killa Kan rules, which were actually you know, reasonable.

>You're already picking and choosing, why not just go a bit further with it?

Because you seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that I'm the original faggot you're arguing with. I'm not. I'm the one who clearly said I wasn't him. I'm also the one who said
> if I could use the 4th edition rules for Killa Kans, including all upgrades, I would do it in a flash.

I'm not arguing for being allowed to do it. I'm not arguing for being able to pick and choose from whatever ruleset you like, regardless of how poor your faction is. I'm saying that if Gw put out an update tomorrow saying "We will allow you to use 4th edition Killa Kan rules in your 7th ed codex" I would. Not because the Kan rules back then were particularly good, but because the new ones are spectacularly BAD.

>>45044496

Personally, if you're planning on running the Warboss in a Green Tide with the Big Bosspole (which you absolutely should), I wouldn't put anything other than that an 'Eavy Armour on him. The reason is that he must accept and issue challenges if he is the Warlord, thanks to the terrible Ghazghull supplement special rules. And any half-way decent tooled up character will cut a Warboss to pieces, and there goes Fearless for the entire Tide.

You can always go for more Power Klaws, but I've never run a full 10 since I find it overkill. The weakness of the Tide is that if it can be tarpitted, you leave the rest of the enemy's army free to claim objectives, so you need some other elements.

Lootas are a good choice, and don't need upgrades. You can buy an Aegis Line with an Ammo Dump for them if you like, which comes out to 70 points extra, but they gain a 4+ cover save that can turn into a 2+ if they go to ground, plus rerolling all 1's on shooting.

Tankbustas are great, but need a transport. This is a bit of a tricky one, since one of the biggest advantages of the Tide is that it negates your opponent's AT weaponry. Grav, plasma, Railguns, Haywire, melta; it's all worthless against the Tide. if you start throwing in lots of vehicles, you lose this advantage.

On the other hand, tankbustas can deal with stuff that really hurts the tide, like Gargantuan Creatures and Super-heavy walkers. It's a trade-off. My current Tide list runs a Biker death-star alongside it.
>>
>>45044615
You have to look in the Ghazgkhull supplement, where the Green Tide formation is located, and see the Orkimedes' Kustom Gubbinz section. Because you're taking a Warboss in this formation his access to relics is changed so he can onlychoose from Orkimedes' Kustom Gubbinz, and not the other relics.

If you want to take a Lukky stikk you'll need to take a standard CAD or Ork Horde Detachment, and then buy another Warboss and equip him with it.

As you will. Other than that there's not much to comment on. I suppose if you could find the points to make your captain suck less that would be great but that's more of a luxury than a requirement. The captain could probably die and you won't lose anything of real value in this list. You look solid.

Part two of two

So there you have it. Unless used as a budget scoring unit, Cultists are an offensive unit, not a defensive one. At their best, they are better per point at killing than your basic Chaos Space Marines, but they are very fragile. If the enemy is spamming low AP high STR weapons like plasma cultists are also a pretty good choice since a plasma gun will kill a space marine just as easily as it will kill a cultist, but a cultist costs less points per model.

But what about Chosen? They get the pretty unique bonus of +1 A over a normal Chaos Space Marine. They also get the unique bonus of getting a close combat weapon for free without losing their bolter.
>Pistol then charge
Chosen vs MEQ = 0.43 / 18 = 0.024
Chosen vs GEQ = 1.32 / 18 = 0.073
>Rapid fire then overwatch then counterattack
Chosen vs MEQ = (3 * 0.08 + 2 * 0.11 + 2 * (1/6 * 1/2 * 1/3)) / 18 = 0.0286
Chosen vs GEQ = (3 * 0.22 + 2 * 0.44 + 2 * (1/6 * 2/3 * 1/1)) / 18 = 0.0979

Chosen are... well, As they are. The fact that they get their CCW and still keep their bolter is pretty cool, but their bolter is kind of just a better weapon than the CCW.

>Bolter Chaos Space Marines rapid firing then overwatching then getting one attack
vs MEQ = (1 * 0.08 + 2 * 0.11 + 2 * (1/6 * 1/2 * 1/3)) / 13 = 0.0274
vs GEQ = (1 * 0.22 + 2 * 0.44 + 2 * (1/6 * 1/2 * 1/3)) / 13 = 0.0888

So at their peak, Bolter CSM are slightly better than Melee CSM, and off their peak, Bolter CSM can shoot at stuff as where Melee CSM and Melee Cultists can't. Arguably, being locked into an assault is a little safer as it protects against shooting, but that is debatable.

They're in FW books only. He's meaning the equivilent of a Gorkanaut/Knight Titan/Stormsurge/Baneblade in the regular codex.

I don't see the problem with that. There is lots of named-but-no-model Nids like Dominatrix which could fill that slot. I think each dex should have a LoW option and LoW HQ.

And since that isn't what Eternal Crusade is, it is by literal definition, not shovelware.
>>
>>45045178
There is a common myth out there that cultists are tougher than CSM. They are not. Maybe most people knew that already.

I didn't expect cultists to be more offensive though. Too bad they can't take any transport options so getting them into the assault is never going to happen.

Chosen are one of my favorite units due to their high number of attacks while retaining their ranged weapon, but in terms of efficiency they are kind of just OK. Not terrible, just OK.

Yeah, cultist's aren't tougher, they are just more cost effective when S7+ ap 2/3 starts flying.

As for the offense, it's grot theory.
If the enemy has armour saves to protects them, sheer number of shot wins
If the enemy does not have armour saves, sheer number of shots win.
Bolters only win out against GEQ and even then the difference is minimal.

You are doing it wrong. Take a Chaos Lord, give him maybe an invuln and stick him into a blob of cultist to give them fearless. BAM : 80~ pts required HQ manning the quadgun with BS5. You can dump your points on better stuff like Heldrakes and a bunch of Obliterators.

The other thing was that you could only see something like 3" into a forest, any troops hiding inside could not be targeted by your troops, but I think you could target a forest with artillery and the like. The other thing is you couldn't shoot out of forests effectively either.

That is until they brought out the catachans codex who got rules to do with placing more forests and being able to shoot out of them with ease amongst other rules to do with units in reserve appearing inside forests all over the place. Broken as fuck.

Well, to be fair... In 1990, a box of Tactical Marines cost £2.50 less (if you apply inflation) to what they do now. Difference is, now you get more options, more weapons, more bitz.

So, in reality, nothing has changed much. All model companies are overpriced, GW isn't anything special in that regard.

You can literally expect half of all people to be dumber than average.

>>45045612
Marines aren't really a good exemple, a better one is the 20 man boxes being cut to 10, but the price only cut to 70%
Or the 10 man boxes that got the same. treatment, while their codex units still have 10 man minimum.

Or the way they apply hot-dog theory to units with mandatory sergeants with no alternate builds, insufficient special/heavy weapons.

What if GW does a simple re-package of a new Ork dex, what would be the verdict from Ork players?
Its been a thing of late I feel, that GW "new" releases of Codex is simply adding digital Photoshop pics from some random anon, a few pages of fluff and copy-paste the rules, then ad on a formation or two.

How would this affect the player base of one of the worst dexes out now? And would you be surprised?
>>
>>45046082
The reaction would be pretty unanimously "this is what we expected". Tau got a rebranded old codex with a few changes, SW are bound to be getting the same next month, Orks being such an early release, if they actually get one, will have much of the same.
>>
>>45046115
Yeah, I also have the feeling campaign books much like the tau ones will be the way early 7th codices get updates. Shame really because you can't fuck around with point costs much that way.
>>
>>45046082

Both my factions got a slew of terrible to mediocre formations with only one or two gimmick ones, often just used for other people's armies.

So yeah I wouldn't be surprised, but some new ones that don't suck or a Decurion would help a lot.
>>
>>45046082
>What if GW does a simple re-package of a new Ork dex, what would be the verdict from Ork players?

Cheap shit, should have been a FAQ, or a patch add-on like mont'ka

>How would this affect the player base of one of the worst dexes out now?

Depends how it is.


>And would you be surprised?

Yeah, releasing a new codex for a 7th edition army would mean they admit it was flawed, not a GW habit.

GW are like a government in that, better to have a minority suffer and complain than admit any wrongdoing and let everyone know you failed.

No, but with decent amount of conversion it can at least go from Fisher-Price tier to the more tolerable "physics are just another enemy to be defeated"
>>
>>45046209
Wasn't thinking about that with the camo cloaks. Whoops.
The scout bikers help the assault squads not scatter. They infiltrate, scout move to where the assault marines need to be and then charge.
The mixed dev weapons are to combat squad them. That way I have flexibility in my target allocation, and if need be I can put all the matching weapons into single units. Star phantom tactics help with this.
I chose stalkers because I don't take fliers. I'm autistic like that.

I'll tweak the list.

It's not a fucking war gear issue. Not everyone wants all the fucking grav cannons. The BA demi company sucks. BA chapter tactics of just FC sucks. The plus 1 initiative on the charge should just be part of it. THEN we get to a demi company benefit...
BA really need auxiliary formations that don't fucking suck. Most of the SoB formations would work they just have to be tied to the demi company with its overarching benefit and losing the MOTHER FUCKING STORM RAVEN TAX on most fucking formations.
>>
>>45046674
Sorry to break it to you mate but they can indeed and denial is very sad to see. I hardly call a 600 point investment on transport, cheese.

2 Wounds each ain't going to save those guys with T4 4+ save. Cant understand the rules but do they at least have a FnP? Any form of Invulnerable? If not, massed firepower or one well placed pie-plate will destroy this unit in one go. And thats not something you want with a 30p/model unit. And to ad TH+SS combo is yet another +20p, which ads up to a 50p/ model count if you really want these guys playable.

Don't get me wrong, I think these guys could potentially put on the hurt, but they need speed, or transport. They need to get in to cc ASAP, because with the points cost and their cc ability they will be a target priority for any opposing team.

>Special rules
Rage
ATSKNF
Curse of the Wulfen
Bulky
Coutnerattack
FNP
Acute Senses

When its killed it makes a free attack

Ability to run and then charge, can reroll charge distance.

30 points per model can take 5 more.
Fuck knows
Frost axe for 8 points
Frost claws for 12 points
Hammer and storm shield for 20

Wulf leader can take an extra set of Frost claws

The unit can take a dedicated stormwolf as transport.
>>
>>45046719

This should be a general rule in any new ork dex. If a unit can have the good´ol "run and charge" rule, thats apparently oh so OP, a team can have it as well.

Think developers of 40k is starting to realize CC ain't as op as it used to be back in 3-5th edition. And I agree, it was fucking horrible back then, but now its just the other way around.

Its a 5 you dufus.

First of, yes it looks like one when comparing it between Initiative and Attacks
Second, its a extra strong Space marine, you really think GW and its team of space yiff-fanboys would give their all new unit 1 less strength than the actual marine? No way.
>>
>>45046803
>>45046804
But, there's no way that could be a 5, right?
That would make them a joke unit for 30 points a model, even nobs could beat them up despite their number of attacks.
>>
>>45046731
And marines get to do it them far cheaper and get a ton of bonuses when doing it.
>>
>>45046770
Yup, in every way, well nobs are 20 points, but the 4+ save costs half of that, and that still leaves all the bonuses, extra stats too.

>>45046836
What are you on about?
>>
>>45046830
Well, keep hoping. I'm sticking with S3, if it looked like I then I'd agree.

I would really help knowing what's the effect of Curse of the Wulfen and of the Frost Claws, because right now, with these informations, I wouldn't really know how to use them most effectively.
Without weapons upgrade they would be really brutal, 5 S5 I5 attacks each on the charge, but they would lack any kind of AP (so a 5 members squad would inflict less than 3 wound on a SM squad) and they lack grenades, so they risk to lose their higher initiative.
While taking the Frost Axe or the Hammer-Shield combo would make them killier (and, in the case of the SS, more durable) but they would lose the initiative and they would cost much more (they would become terminator less survivable to AP2 attacks but with better chances to reach melee)
