Why not - you'll block a Riptide from shooting for one turn. That's a worthwhile investment.

Ive been running mono-slaneesh and Ive been doing fairly well, at 1500 I've played 5 games, 2 kill points 3 objectives, and im 4-1, only lost to tau once because I deepstriked poorly and ate supporting fire over watch. Im wondering how effective CSM are allied with slaneesh and how would I play them? I like CSM, Raptors and possessed models so I'd like to make a list around them that'd do pretty well. Any ideas?

>>45119186
Better make sure you stop all those Battlewagons from declaring a charge then.
>>
>>45119014
Just because you can make a fucking infrographic doesn't mean you are reading the rules correctly.

Scouts rule says a unit that makes a scout move can't charge on the first game turn - a unit inside a transport that is scouting is moving - it can't fucking charge.

The rule was probably meant to say Game Turn but no one gives enough of a shit to correct it.

If I ever see a Blitz Brigade retard in the flesh I'm gonna purposefully start collecting Eldar just so I can Charge him with Jain Zar on the first turn out of my scouting corsairs venom.

This leap in logic is hilarious, so according to you units that moved in the movement phase also can't charge?

Also, are you even more retarded in that you don't understand that scout is not a movement? It's a redeployment? Don't answer that, you'll embarrass yourself further.

All this talk of Blitz Brigade just makes me sad for Ork players. I was playing my buddy today with my War Convocation (per his request) and he was running BB and I still tabled him on turn 3. I don't even argue BB because Orks are so piss awful it doesn't hurt to throw them a bone.
>>
>>45119181
Riptide is WS 2 with 3 attacks, while scouts are WS 4. Since it needs a 5 to hit, it's only going to be hitting one scout on average, and possibly not even killing it. It'll take at least 2 turns to punch through them all.
>>
>>45119275
Scout isn't a move.
They're not on the table.

> I don't even argue BB
You know my BAngles friend tried to shoot in the shooting phase, and I didn't argue because my Tau are much stronger than BA.

Stay fucking mad you salty fatass WAAC fag, rules say you can. Scout is a redeployment, not an actual movement, as you can move in the movement phase next, so the unit isnt without scout can assault.

Sup /tg/?

I'm getting back into the game for the first time in about a decade and am looking to rebuild my Nid army.

My old army wasn't much (I was an Eldar fanboy back in my teens), given that I started university and then couldn't afford GW products any more, but it had a Hive Tyrant, a unit of Tyranid Warriors (one of which has gone missing), about 20 Termagants, 20 Genestealers and 7 Hormagaunts.

All of the stuff I have is reasonably well suited for 6th/7th edition, but I'm looking to see what kind of things I'd need to round out a decent 1000 point army, just to get back into the swing of things with.

I've already picked up a new Hive Tyrant/Swarmlord and some Tyrant Guards. I figure that should cover my HQ needs well enough. What else should I be looking at?
>>
Blitz Brigade has a specific rule that prevents units from charging first turn. Even the fucking scout debate is worthless, because there is a SPECIFIC BLITZ BRIGADE RULE that prevents first turn charges. What the fuck is going on?

Have fun ever getting in a game after, orks being mid tier with 1 gimmick is fine, king cheese using super cheese is just "fuck off" territory.
You should buy this for your eldar, its an effective unit that serves well.
>>
>>45119357
>Doesnt know the difference between Player Turns and Game Turns
>>
>>45119366
I'm no expert, but from what I've read there's a difference in consistency between model paints and craft paints. You'd need to water down craft paints a lot more and you'd likely get a worse paint job out of it at the end.
>>
>>45119366

It is largely a matter of taste - I use a combination of both. For my bulk colors like black, base white, etc, I use apple barrel. For my specific colors like metallics and shades and the like I use model paint.
>>
>>45119387
>mid tier
Not even with turn 1 charges are we that, formation costs more than 3 Riptides/ 2 Wraithknights
>>
>>45119357
The special rule prevents charges on the first player turn, not game turn. By going second, you can charge on your first turn, and you're still exposed to a turn of shooting, so you're not dodging anything this way.
>>
>>45119351
>wow this elfdar player is using a much weaker list than normal, best get mad so he brings wraithknights and skatbikes again.
Cool, have fun.
>>
>>45119387

Even with BB they're a low tier army.
>>
>>45119430
Exactly. All this does for Blitz Birgade is let them still only suffer a single turn of shooting regardless of whether they go first or second.
>>
>>45119379
>>
>>45119424
500 points of battlewagon, the rest with boyz and maybe a MANz can fit into 1250 easily.
>>
>>45119387
I play Orks you retard.

I just think the formation sucks dick even with turn 1 charge - but I think it's pathetic that the entire Ork player population of 4chan systematically becomes RAW faggots just to push a formation that isn't even good in the first place, when the consequence of their RAW faggotry is Eldar and Space marines being 5x more powerful.
>>
>>45119476

>Oh good, no Wraithknights.

>Righto.
>H-hey wait a sec. Aren't you going to dispute it?
>Why would I dispute it? It's right there in the rules.
>Yeah but it's a Turn 1 charge!
>Yeah, so? Other armies can do that too. Frankly I'm just glad to be facing an Eldar army that isn't just Scatbikes and Wraithknights.
>Oh....well....um ok, I'm charging you.

Yes, because vehicles, especially ones that get close to the enemy to do their job, are well renowned for being invincible in this edition.

When I run Blitz Brigade, and I've been running it since the supplement came out in 2014, I'm lucky if I have 2 Battlewagons left at the start of my first turn, if I go second. Assault armies like KDK just assault the transports after I scout, and shooting armies have access to piles of melta.

It does though beat the alternative as you rightly point out.

You're also about to learn something new. Chapter Master Orbital Bombardment does not prevent charges. Your Chapter Master can drop the hammer of the goddamn emperor on someone, and then charge them immediately to slam the survivors with his own LITERAL hammer.

Also, Smoke Launchers can be deployed even if a vehicle suffered a Crew Stunned result. It might not seem like much, but if you can't do anything else with the vehicle, a 5+ cover save can potentially let it live to see the next turn.

MFW when my brother in law and I are playing in a local tourney tomorrow, it what is usually a fairly casual meta.Drop by the shop to look at the final roster. 14 teams, 5 tau/tau teams, 2 eldar/eldar teams. Its his first tourney in a long time, and hes trying to get back into the game. It might be a long day

What army will allow me to drop in and fuck up the opponents key points as fast as possible? I like the idea behind that scars formation that lets you go down a target list and fuck up each of them in turn (kinda funny how RG, the operator marines, don't get that, but space mongols do).

I'm a tyranid player that specializes in CC.

Because he fits the description of Big Boss perfectly. He's an operator of legendary skill and renown, such that he can lead a team of up to 30 people in FULL POWER ARMOUR to infiltrate any facility.

He is an outright god at marksmanship, being able to outdo anyone ever at shooting. Just like how big boss was able to defeat The End(The greatest sniper ever) in a sniper duel.

Oh, and in order for him to become the chapter master of the raptors, the previous chapter master obviously had to die in battle. He's obviously succeeded the previous master by honourable battle, thus succeeding his boss and becoming BIG BOSS.

Ok, 2 questions

1- A template hits everything underneath it, so on a multi-level ruin it hits everything under it on all floors, but can only kill what the firing model can see. Correct?

2- Each individual model in a unit must have range and line of sight to fire at another unit, correct? So if only half the unit is in range, and only 3 models have line of sight than only 3 models int he unit fire.

So I have browsed a few of these threads on and off since Christmas and decided this weekend I would stop by the local GW to actually watch a game and see some armies in person.

Up to this point I have read al the BRB fluff and am slowly learning a metric fuckton of rules.

The people playing at the store seemed really cool and there was a big 2v2 game of Space Marines and another table of Orks and Daemons. They let me observe both games and even slowed things down if I asked a question on someones off-turn. Their was also two more people painting who showed off some of their (very well painted) miniatures.

The problem was the GW salesperson, when I first showed up he was very overbearing and I let him know I didn't expect to buy anything yet and just wanted to watch. However he would interject a salespitch into any answer even if it wasnt a question directed at him. When I asked one of the painters what he liked about his Elder army he explained some of their fluff and was trying his best to explain a tank tactic he uses that went right over my head. (Wave Serpents, lots of them.) Next thing I know the salesperson is showing me where the Elder are and going on a spiel about the most cost effective purchase to start an army. Again I stopped him, told him I was just curious yet he did this again in one way or another FOUR more times. After models failed he tried to pitch the Big Rullebook and other novels he had afterwards he switched to hobby supplies.

It was nonstop and so overbearing. So now with that and seeing how well everyone else's armies are painted I am a bit put off by the hobby and the daunting task of entering it.
>>
>>45121164
My current model for Lias Issodon has finished his bath in purple power, and awaits my purchase of greenstuff. I'm using this model as his baseline, but my goal will be to sculpt his head into being Big Boss, with a bandanna, eye patch, and scruffy beard.

>>45121288
Raptors anon here, one of my long-term projects is to make a Warboss with a Cardboard box model, and name him "Bigga boss". That way I could bring him to games with Orks; and while bringing loaded dice purely to roll Master of Ambushes for my warlord trait, and give infiltrate to a unit of 150 ork boyz.

Templates do not care about line of sight when assigning wounds. You only need LOS on the squad to fire it.

Does he seek to become independent of the Imperium? Does he have a Titan and exterminatus weaponry? Does he go alone on important missions? Does he abduct Marines from other chapters to work for him? Does he have traumas of his predecessor death? Is he in a box?

Calm down anon, I'm not talking about Venom Snake. But he soon will have his own personal Warlord Titan painted in camouflage. You know, to hide from gods.

Actually yes. So far Big Boss has abducted the following marines to work for him in the Raptors

No worries I often don't post pics of my stuff because I see what others on tg do and feel like my scrubby stuff isn't worth posting.

That is literally the exact same model I was going to use, I just dont like how decorated the armour is (my raptors are going to have very little embellishment on their armour.

>>45121337
Sorry you had that experience anon. It's a bit daunting, but I have to say I don't regret putting as much work as I have into my arming, and I'm still not done. I guess it's just easy for me not to be very intimidated by all the work because I like a long term project.

If you're still interested, I suggest finding some papercrafts of an army to proxy and a cool dude to play with outside the store until you finally decide. That's how I got started. Don't buy anything until you're sure you want it

> I just don't like how decorated the armour is
I'll be honest, before I start painting Lias, I'm going to file away much of the bling and replace it with more tacticool gear, such as extra ammo-pouches and grenade packs.

All of my marines eschew more traditional 'bling' in favor of tacticool stuff. Everyone in my entire army has a camo cloak, an extra grenade pack, bolt pistol holster, and extra ammo pouches. I'm constantly raiding bitz bins everywhere to obtain more tacticool bitz to bling out my operators more.

The grav devs are why you take it, the assault marines are along for the ride. Aso, with combat squadding, you could potentially pin down up to 8 shooting units.

So i'm missing the point and the Assault Marines are just there to tie down the Grav Dev's leftovers?

That'd be great if I liked Devastators..
>>
>>45121337

There is no need to start big. I wouldn't even recommend it because chances are you might dislike the hobby. I think sometimes the idea of Warhammer being super expensive comes from people who think that when you get into the hobby, you need to immediately buy 1500 points worth of minis and 200 paint pots and shit (not saying that you think like this).

But it is very easy to start with small purchases and very slowly to build your army that way. If you don't like it, you didn't make a big investment, no big deal. If you like it, you can start slowly expanding and buying more minis, new paints, army books etc.
>>
>>45121660
Don't worry. There's probably more spess muhrene formations out there than other factions have combined.
>>
>>45121572
>>45121591

Would this work for Blood Angels; take an allied Skyhammer formation, then a Baal Strike Force (minimum scouts), Dante, Priest /w Angel's Wing, Captain Karlean, and as many Death Company or Sanguinary Guard you can fit.

Skyhammer lays into them turn one and keeps shit tied down, turn two you have a gigantic chance of rolling deep strike and putting the deathstar on the board, turn three they kill whatever big priority target exists or start mopping up.
>>
>>45121660
Or, the devs can be combat squadded to 5 redshirts and 4+1 devs, and the redshirts can pin down things for the assault marines to basically guaranteed charge without eating overwatch
>>
>>45121572
Don't the assault marines get some re-rolls if they charge a unit that was pinned by the devs?

The easiest way to get into this game is to download the Kill-Teams rules online, then go purchase an HQ and 2 troop choice boxes.

You'll get everything you need to play kill-teams for only 100$, or possibly even less if you buy them pre-owned. And you don't need to buy anything more, but it's possible to slowly expand your kill-team options and build an army up over time in the process.

>>45121855
Those look great! I obtained the camo cloaks from my army by ordering them from Chinaman. It was the easiest method, in terms of both time and money. They were 50 cents a cloak, so it was 50$ for me to outfit an entire company of 100 marines. Now I just need to find the marines for it..

My next investment will be to get 100 MkVI helmets, and 100 Seeker Bolters from chinaman. Raptors are still a raven guard successor, so canonically they favor the beakies. I'm also a sucker for bolters with red-dot sights, and I feel it would further help my marines with being marksmen.

Star Phantoms, especially if you give flamers to all of the assault marines. Enjoy Twin-linked flamers and Grav-Cannons with rerollable reserves for the rest of your non-skyhammer army.

>rest of the detachment
I thought detachment meant only the bits of your army that were already Star Phantoms? As in, if you ally Phantoms to Guard, only the Phatom detachment gets the reroll
>>
>>45122371
What I meant when I said that the rest of your "Non-skyhammer" army was the rest of your space marines that don't fall under the skyhammer formation. Say you want to run a Gladius with 10 drop pods alongside the skyhammer? Well 5 of those drop pods would get a nifty reroll on their reserves.
>>
>>45122316
>>45122293


Cool - thanks guys. I don't play SM but having these resources is nice.
>>
>>45122421
Yeah, the wording was confusing, that's better, except Drop Pod Assault means you get half your non-skyhammer pods arriving turn 1 anyway
>>
>>45122474
Which is why they said 5 rather than 10. 5 are already coming down without a need for the reroll.
>>
How does your LGS feel about Forge World? Prefer it over GW? Hate it with the fury of a thousand suns? Somewhere in-between?
>>
>>45122474

It's just going to mean that you're almost guaranteed to get your reinforcements coming in on turn 2, instead of missing a few. This can be absolutely brutal for your opponent if you put too much on his plate all at once.

Conversely, it also makes you more resistant to reserve shenanigans. Much moreso than space marines already are!

What's a good model set up for a CentStar to ally with? Tigirius? Lysander?, 3-4 GravCents and Scouts?

Traditionally it is Tigirus for Invis and a white scar for the Hunter's eye and ignores cover I think.

What kind of Vanguard Veteran set up do you guys use with C:SM?
>>
>>45122534
>>45122514
You've already got two assault squads and 7 guaranteed pods, with another 2.5 likely. I just think that using your CT for an extra 1.5 or so pods is overkill compared to master-crafted multimeltas or Doctrines or free Nartheciums etc.

Hunter's eye?

>>45122605
jump packs, bolt pistols, and plasma pistols

>>45122518
My FLGS doesn't have any problems with forgeworld. There are multiple people here that use Relic Units from IA2, and plenty of other players using forgeworld supplements too.

There's only one person at my FLGS who hates forgeworld with the burning fury of a thousand stars, and that's the local "Eldar player that acts like an eldar in real life". He's threatened to destroy forgeworld books and models on mulitple occasions. He's the worst waacfag I've ever known in my life(To a point where he outright refuses to play against anyone who isn't "Good enough" for him).. And he's just an all around insufferable dick.

Can we start a petition to drop the C: whenever referencing space marines? There's no other "SM" army in the game so there's no need for the extra letter, and if someone is referring to a non codex space marine chapter they do so with that chapters initials, BA, DA or SW are obvious.

That's the deal with the not vanilla SM codices. All of them as far as "chapter tactics" go are really poor the Dark Angels slightly less so, but Stubborn and BS2 overwatch really pale compared to the actual chapter tactics
They should balance it with their original unit and configuration, the problem of the Blood Angels is that their options suck too

The store I play at is a super local GW, and the manager is pretty picky about that kind of stuff, considering she still has a hardback Daemonkin codex on the shelf.

I would have started KDK if I didn't hate Space Marine bikes. They're so .. fisher price looking retard bikes.

I don't know how people can live with themselves converting up a huge, expensive Smashfucker HQ choice with Smashfucker Command Bike Squad and whatever else kids do these days. Jet packs are way cooler. So are mounts.

>but Stubborn and BS2 overwatch really pale compared to the actual chapter tactics
Really?

I mean some chapter tactics like salamanders and imperial fists are really really good but BS 2 overwatch seems like a huge deal, stubborn less so because marines already don't give a shit about losing combat because they can't be overrun.

No one will be able to tell if its a recast because Forgeworld would have to ship directly to you and once its cleaned, assembled and primed no one can fucking tell the difference. Especially not with Forge World's comically bad quality control issues.

So far Chinaman has given me better casts than fucking Forge World has.
>>
>>45123275

I also play at a GW but when you download the eBook format and its on a digital device it is nearly impossible for anyone to say you didn't just buy it and download it.

That said I understand you not wanting to chance it either. FWIW it is very difficult to get asked to never come back to a GW anyway.

>>45123398
why would you want a banner, tho
>>
>>45123116
That's what happen when every new codex or unit comes out. A particular combination or rule will look like the ultimate troll option when actually on the tabletop, in most cases, you understand it's not that great.
I expect the same to happen with this new Wulfen. Sure, they can dish out a ton of high strength low AP attacks at initiative, but nonetheless they are 40-44 points per model for a T4 4+ unit even if with W2 or FnP or 50 points to gain a 3++ invulnerable, so every shooty army will obliterate the unit and it's huge target saying "Shoot here" before they can assault
Nonetheless I will buy at least two boxes of them
>>
>>45123417
Because banners are cool. To have your general's colors, rising above the smoke and blood, never touching the ground, never retreating, it just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
>>
>>45123418
seems more like you'd run a small unit alongside your thunderwolves
>>
>>45123418

I plan on buying at least one box and using Grey Hunters and Space Wolf conversion packs to make them not suck. If you replace the heads, backpacks and, hopefully, arms, they would be perfectly fine. The thunderhammer ones have some great poses actually.
>>
>>45123348
I've walked into a GW for a tournament with an army that was fully 50% chinaman. I even had the store owner compliment me on my raptors models. TMW my bit box smells like air pollution.
>>
>>45123470
but the rules are terrible
>>
>>45123475

Yeah, Wulfen in the middle or back, Thunderwolves on the flanks, maybe Grey Hunters in a rhino to screen their advance, or Blood/Skyclaws.

Its not going to place well in ultra competitive everything-goes environments but it will be a very strong assault army in more limited formats or 'fun' casual games.
>>
>>45123511
That goes for all of 40k, so just take what's cool you son of a silly person.
>>
>>45123310
It's ideally a good rule, but most army will be focused on Deathwing or Ravenwing, so only the most assault dedicated units would assault them, and usually those can deal with they hitting on a 5+ instead that on a 6+.
Also it's the shootiest edition ever, so all the most dangerous army couldn't care less that you overwatch when they do something they will never do
>>
>>45123529
Yeah but I wouldn't want to pay points for it. I'd just use him as a basic lasgun mook.
>>
>>45123348
>>45123371
>>45123368
I just don't think it's worth all the effort to undercut the store. Don't get me wrong, if I could get away with it I would, but I've supported the store for well over 4 years now and I don't want to ruin things between me and the manager because of a recast. The risk isn't worth the reward in my opinion.

And yeah, I know some people will call me a cuck or whatever but the local store is important to me so I don't want to see it go.

What kills me about Wulfen is how much I wish the Death Company gave army buffs like that. Potentially giving other non-DC Blood Angels the Fearless, Rage, etc. rules, or even on a good-bad roll they lose a squad member and they join the Death Company unit, like in their old pre-5e codex.

I'm of the controversial opinion that local GW stores shouldn't be fucked over by recasts or online third party retailers either if you like the place and it has a decent manage or community to play with. Same with FLGS.

The old Space Wolves models had helmets like that, too. I think they were better designed desu but this is pretty cool, like a Terminator helmet stylized into a wolf head.

Torsos and lower bodies are fine, heads, backpacks and some arms are not. I'd assume they can remove the arms and heads so easy to 'convert' them.

>>
>>45123839

>>45123839

>>
>>45123839

Go Sanguinary Priest - as >>45123889 says they're cheap and solid. +1 WS and FnP for a unit for 60 points base isn't bad at all.
>>
>>45123839

Is it a 'fun' casual game meta? If so, yes, just screen him and use him to jump out during multi-charges and challenge characters (he's a BEAST in challenges.) Otherwise, leave him at home.

Astorath is your best choice for Death Company. Dante is amazing in general, take him if Lords of War are allowed and you have the spare points. Also consider a Librarian for the Death Company.

Sanguinary Priests are very good, but put them in your Guard units or other assault units that are not Death Company because he does not benefit them.

>>45123889

Sanguinary Priest does almost nothing for Death Company. IF you are going to suggest a generic HQ for Death Company, you take Librarians. The Sanguinary Priest belongs with Sanguinary Guard, Vanguard Veterans, Assault Marines, etc, where that FNP will be more desired. The only time it'd be viable is if you're going to load up the Death Company with multiple characters like Astorath and Dante at the same time.

Man everyone says this but they're wrong. Screen him and he's a pain in the ass that buffs the whole army and massacres characters in challenges. The only time you leave him home is when rampant WAACfaggotry and tournaments are involved. Even then he's annoying to remove thanks to Eternal Warrior and 2+/4++. Saying you can see him when a Fast Rhino or two is blocking the way.

As someone who owned a lot of old Space Wolves models, they still had some serious wolf shit going on. Priests in particular with their wolf skull helmets, wolf helmets on Wolf Guard and other models, pelts and fang necklases everywhere, and terrible GW hair and faces were rampant.

The only thing that got extra stupid 'wolfy' is the naming conversions, Logan's hover sled and the Thunderwolf Cavalry, the latter of which is imo perfectly fine.

You would all jizz yourselves senseless if it was dinosaurs or giant cassowaries or something. But not, you're too afraid of the goddamn furry boogieman from almost a decade ago.

An extra attack for nearby BA models and a challenge beatstick in an edition where challenge beatsticks aren't that great isn't worth 200 points in my opinion, especially when its being allied to something, so points are probably in tight supply. Priest is the good, budget HQ we have access to, and buffs Death Company fine with FNP. If he was using BA as his main detachment, its a different story

not really, no, I don't care about dinosaurs and I don't even know what the hell cassowaries are. And I've been playing since the 2nd edition, and the wolf thing was never at this level. The difference between a Space Wolf and a regular muhreen were the talismans, iconography and the occational wolf helmet/wulfen, but the vast majority of the units were obviously 40k and were almost identical to vanilla muhreens. At this point the number of talismans has doubled or tripled, the wulfen look like they're from regular warhammer, weaponry/etc. suddenly looks way different from the average muhreen stuff and the list goes on. And the furry meme NEETs on 4chinz sperg about doesn't enter into it, people in my country wouldn't even recognize the term.

Death Company already have Feel No Pain. You do not put Priests on Death Company. It is a waste of points. Buy a Librarian instead if you're being cheap, Astorath if you have wiggle room, and Dante if you don't care about points and want a melee deathstar.

Get a Vindicare. The vindicare takes out their ministorum priest on turn 1 with a Shieldbreaker round, then you need to charge the squad in melee. Basic 4++ won't save them ever against a marine statline.

>>
>>45124305
Not the anon you answered to, but I'm favorable to making them more different to the vanilla marines, both for a fluff reason (they are one of the most independent chapters, they should be the most different from the norm) and a visual one (we already have marines as roughly half of the armies played, making them most visually different can only help the hobby)

>>45124427
There's still the matter of dealing with the dark angels Chapter Master, but he's not a challenge monster in his own right. You need to get Smashfucker in melee with him before he wipes your charging squad, but he's bringing a deathstar, so he'll have multiple challenge-HQ's to compensate and challenge block.

The vindicare can take out a whopping 2 of the lesser characters, but you're still looking at a tarpit that can still take on your counter-tarpit for multiple turns.

Don't really see the point of mixing a punisher and an executioner. And those melta sponsons are never getting used. Trim some points and give those russes lascannons on the front. They'll do you better than single heavy bolters.
