Saging because this is a repost from the tail end of last thread, but here's Version 1.5 of the Trisdekan Primer, for anyone who still plays Only War.

 No.386183

Here is a little thought behind my CSM and possible future IG army. A little rambly but I haven't written it down before.

100 years before the Great Rift the chapter master of my now CSM is attacked by a Tzeentch demon, which tells him what is going to happen to the galaxy and the fact that 'you' will never turn to chaos. This led to the Chapter master to prepare his worlds by increasing IG and allowing cultists to thrive, all under his command. When the Great Rift opened he seceded from the Imperium with little bloodloss due to the fact he replaced any that would oppose him. This was about the time the chapter began showing signs of corruption and the CM realized his mistake. He couldn't kill them because their brotherhood is stronger than their faith. With little in the way of vehicles, the CM set up an alliance with the dark mechanicus where they would trade cultists for daemon engines. With traitor guard, cultists, and dark mechanicus the chapter was able to expand.

The Chapter is run by 2 people, the Chapter Master and the head librarian. The chapter only has one psyker at a time due to the fact the weaker psyker ends up having accidents and dies off. Accidents are usually Final Destination tier incidents. The current librarian only dies if an initiate with greater potential power shows up.

The now renegade chapter attacked the orks in a nearby system and managed to set up a grot rebellion to occupy the greenskins for the time being. They then invaded a system with a few mining worlds and a large feudal world. Mining worlds fell without an issue, but the feudal world stood out as an actual threat due to an Inquisitor acting as the planetary governor. The Inquisitor demanded the world create regiments (Think Empire Greatswords with lasrifles cut with bits of Admech galvanic rifle) and was able to supply them with the help of an Admech magos that wanted a defense force for his mining worlds. The Inquisitor withdrew all regiments to the feudal world to defend it. The inquisitor is waiting for a ordo malleus guy to show up to exercise a demon under her mansion, so fuck those mining worlds. Together with her regiments and the armies of the feudal world with pike and shot level technology they try to stand off against the chaos horde. Inquisitor opens up her armoury to help supply the big guns.

Well, thousand sons seem op due to the fact that the leader is a psyker plus they all have 5+ invuln. The only icon they can take is an icon of flame, which is basically a free psy-bolt. So yeah, surprisingly tanky.

Im going to play killteam this friday for the first time with the IG, any advice?


 No.386238

>>386202

You also forgot how the rubric marines get a bonus to their saving throws for weapons that deal only one damage per hit. Their point costs are extremely good for what they are. The point cost for many factions is way to good and efficient compared to others. Orks have a ton of overpriced gear, and the imperial guard seems to have that problem too.


 No.386485

I'm curious, in the actual tabletop how well would a big wall of imperial guardsmen with lasguns fare against CSM and heavily armored tanks? I mean with such a volume of concenterated fire I'd reckon someone would score a lucky hit on a CSM in one of the weaker parts of the armor, but for tanks and such I don't know.

I'm asking this because I'm playing Winter Assault and I can't help but feel like the tactical marines and the imperial guardsmen's roles were changed, since I don't quite understand why IG wouldn't have morale breaking weapons or AT/Anti building weaponry while the bolter wielding SM would(but then again DoW's bolters are pretty much smgs and if I hadn't read up anywhere I wouldn't have thought otherwise).


 No.386488

>>386485

Infantry squad is 40 points for 9 lasguns.

At 13-24" range, against CSM, that's 9 shots, half of which hit, a third of which wound, and a third of which penetrate. Total average wounds: 0.5

At 7-12" range, it's one wound average.

At 2-6" range, it's 12.5 average shots, so 1.19444 average.

And that's with an entire unit in full health.

Fortunately, you can have a lot more units. than the CSM.

But really, the strength of the guard is in the vehicle options.

The IG are almost a "drown the enemy in bodies" style army. Especially in regards to their infantry. However, the strong suit of IG are the tanks. DoW gimps the IG by not really allowing them to have as many tanks as they should. The Guard DO have AT weaponry, its just on their tanks.


 No.386573

>>386185

Deathwatch just has lots of tricks up its sleeve to compensate for low model count. Things like Special Issue Ammunition are game changers depending on how they are used. Trade off is that five Deathwatch marines fully kitted out could buy you four times that amount of guardsmen. As for Death Guard, poxwalkers are the headache of the tabletop put into Killteam. Just be glad they can’t take cultists to generate more of the blobby fuckers like roughly three quarters of Death Guard players do in the actual game. As for Sons, they’re one of the only armies that can bring psykers, which means that unless you’re playing Grey Knights you can easily get raped with smite spam.

T. Am painting a Deathwatch killteam for use in matched play, am also planning on getting use out of the Death Guard models that came with the starter box I bought.


 No.386611

Yeah, on the tabletop. In Killteam, where you have one frag cannon/IFB it’s basically screaming “Focus fire on this model. Kill him first!”


 No.387189

I have a quick question about kill team. Can you only overwatch once with that model per turn, or is it as many times as you want?

I also wanted to ask some advice on making an alien race for my next 40krpg game. I wanted to have a race of aliens that blatantly use warp technology and occasionally fall to full blown chaos, but otherwise are minorly tainted throughout their society. I was thinking of having an insectoid race of locust or fly looking individuals with a strict caste structure of several queens. Any ideas on how to spice them up?

These are your two best options for existing factions. One is like a fire ant colony, the other is more like bulldog ants. Neither are particularly chaos'y, but it is reasonable to assume the former could fall under that sway in their warp-tech experiments, while the latter is so savage that it might as well be warpish.

What lexicanum and 1d4chan have are the whole of the lore so far.

As it states the Z'zor are the a good proxy for models, fitting the general description.

Looking at what scant remembrancer picts we have it would take a good kitbash and greenstuff sculpting to make anything resembling a proper one. If you want a close encounter with an easy-to-lore race Rak'gol have some material, and can be mocked up easily with a simple kitbash and some clever painting.

Better yet tie the bugs in to the Alpha legion by using http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Slaugth

Maybe the bugs you face were corrupted by these bastards. Alpha legion pretending to be loyalist astartes in the sector try to purge the fuckers and not get caught being traitors. The Æthean Swords, bearing blue and white livery with golden sword symbols abounding. An allusion to the golden sword bequeathed to Heracles to behead the Hydra of Lerna. Ironic and fitting. Chapter master wears a lion's pelt and carries a conspicuously large power maul, fluent in highly nuanced grunting.

 No.387556

>>387552

Anything over half your gun's range has a -1 to hit. Anything in cover has a -1 to hit. Certain enemy units have innate -1 to hit.

To-hit is capped at 6+, so only one matters to Orks, but it's still half your hits going down the drain.

This also means that any further than 3" and you can't throw a stikkbomb to save your life.

(seriously, 1 in 7 chance of injuring a guardsman.)

Other than kommandos, all your models move 5". This limits your advances to +5", so at most you can move 10" and take the -1 to hit on your assault weapons before the enemy makes you take it anyway.

This also makes it really hard to get in range for a charge, or to actually shoot someone.

If you do make it into melee, though:

Burnas have what amounts to a sub-par power sword

kommandos and boyz have chainsword equivalents.

a boss nob (of which you can have only 1) can have a 2 damage power maul equivalent or a power klaw.

A kommando boss nob can't have the power maul equivalent, just the chainsword or klaw.

Everybody else fights with their fists.

Overall, Kill Team is not an Orky environment.

You actually need to take cover to survive, and your enemy will have the ability to kite you, if they don't want to get into melee too.

It's unflavourful, and a sub-par option regardless of way you want to play.


 No.387571

The sad part is that an ok kill team list for an ork is just spamming a ton of big shootas. Having two nobs helps a bit, but the kommando nob not getting a big choppa really pushes it down.

KT is okay. But orks got fucked big time.They gimped other factions, but they inadvertently buffed others. So no combi-weapons for anyone. This makes heavy weapons more important. But then they buffed certain other weapons to the point of ridiculousness, ie the Frag Cannon.

A part of me thinks that they removed stuff just to see if KT catches on, then they'll gradually add stuff if it gets popular. But that could will be both good and bad. Until then, have fun fighting five man Deathwatch teams where four have Frag Cannons and the leader is naked.


 No.387575

>>387574

Orks being better at shooting in kill team is the biggest shame about it. Burnas are garbage except a zealot. The only really consistent thing you get is a nob with a skorcha and big choppa, but even that falls short in terms of points used vs effectiveness. Most of their problems would be solved if you could give people heavy armor.

its more costly. points are more valuable in KT, and given that those points could be used on specialists.

it balances out, armies with smaller troop counts can easily be over run in CC by hordes. since you don't need LOS to charge it makes it even easier to tie up an OP unit in CC.

Yes and no.

During the great crusade all battleships under the space marine legions direct command were called "battle barges" instead. They weren't purpose built vessel to move a great number of troops quickly (with the exception of the Gloriana Class).

Chaos strike cruisers are rare and of similar (recent) design making them prize or newer defections.

Chaos also uses more Grand Cruisers than the Imperial navy and would simply use warp sorcery to move space marines.

Price wise, considering how expensive the old one is for what you get, these can't really be worse. All we can say for sure is there's two different sprues, so it'll likely be two buggies per box. The game should have a decent discount and beyond that, it's not like any proper Ork player is going to buy a lot of these outside of kitbash purposes.

Speed freaks lists aren't very good right now due to bikes being too expensive. They did recently update it so biker Warbossess can have warbiker units advance and charge.

It's a nice game with some things that regular WH40K would need badly. It plays better thanks to having elite armies being really elite (SM performing finally as superhuman soldiers) and horde armies facing the usual conundrums of quality and morale, while keeping the model count in check. If you're in a burn out phase due to overly complex and long games of WH40K, give it a try.

And some things aren't done properly, GW style, like cover/LOS and campaign. Even a game like Frostgrave does narrative campaigns better. Resource points have no actual meaning other than a limit for your team to go guerrilla or not. Some lists are unexplicably poor in choices, like why not having Mandrakes or Scourges for the DE? Or Ogryns and Ratlings for the IG? Just limit the model count to 1-2 and you won't imbalance shit. Oh well.

Their lack of experience with the setting can be a great boon to your campaign. Don't let them know any more than their characters would.

Yea, something like that would be pretty cool.

Then the survivors are selected by the "people of the stars" or something as the Imperial governor descends form his orbital palace to select the decades' regular flesh-tithe to the IG. At which point you could rewrite the character sheets for Only War and have them ship out to some distant warzone.

Sure, basic dakka spam is great as always, but all the old big gunz and kannons are pretty useless now, so paying for big gun platforms is mostly a waste of point.

If you want effective Ork shooting take the grot gun krews. They're dirt cheap so you can fill out spearhead detachments easily. Kustom megakannons are great, four or five lobbas can really put a hurt down on massed infantry.

Orks are a close combat army. And now that you can assault after deepstriking/outflanking, not lose 90% of your boyz on turn one due to templates, and not lose your powerklaw nobs every single time due to challenges, you can actually play them like a close combat army. Kustom Force field plus Painboy makes large hordes of Boyz very difficult to kill. If the rumors about the upcoming Ork clan tactics are true crappy shooting may no longer be an issue.

The kill tank kind of blows. It's main gun only does two damage. The funny part is they released rules for the other variant that has a bunch of different firing modes but didn't release points values for it. The kustom mekadread is actually really good. It has a 4+ ballistic skill, can take either a kustom forcefield or the ability to move twice once per game, has a feel no pain that starts at a 4+ but gets worse every time it fails, 18 wounds, and its cheaper than the gorka/morkanaughts. Also it was recently updated so it can take a killkannon.

I think they wanted to simplify the game, which is stupid, since templates were already pretty simple, and added a level of risk and tactics that I was fond of, as well as giving low BS units a chance in the shooting phase. The flip side is that template weapons are now just as lethal to low model units as they were to high model units. Basically, if you hit a unit with three dudes 6d6 times with a template weapon, all those hits go to those three dudes, they're not wasted like they would have been previously. In addition, they're woefully inadequate when it comes to dealing with high model units, like conscripts or boyz.

My two cents is this: They revamped KT. They also brought back Necro. Now they're bringing back Adeptus Titanicus. Even though they said they wouldn't bring Mordhiem back, they did introduce Shadespire. But that isn't compatible with every army in AoS, is it? So in another throw back, similar to how they're "bringing back" Rogue Trader (a Kill Team supplement) they're bringing back "Realm of Chaos," their skirmish mode/rpg for WFB. In other words, a KT for AoS. Get it? since AoS is all about "Realms," then a realm of Chaos would be crazy, right? Either way, they have to bring Slaanesh back in since it is one of the main four Chaos Gods. Then they have to bring Fulgrim back. Then they'll probably do Angron last since when AoS came out it was nothing but Khrone shit. Then in 7th ed, they had their Tzeentch period. No with 8th ed, they had a Nurgle period. That would only leave one two left.

Aside from that, there's rumors about the orks getting klan specific units or something.

Probably allied factions. Too few models for them to be a full-fledged army. They should've ust rolled the Nurgle stuff into the DG codex or something, since a mini-nurgle faction seems kinda pointless. At least the Rogue Trader guards look like a possibly cool IG regiment.

FW promised to make a RT army for HH. In the meantime, the Imperial militia list isn't too far removed.

The problem with static defenses is that by being immobile, eventually someone will bring in a big enough piece of siege weaponry to smash a hole in it.

Even the most straight forward, simple minded warboss understands this concept. Blood Axe warbosses, however, being more prone to iotas of strategy and tactics, understand that the wall also keeps the enemy neatly packed in one obvious place.

It's also a big, fat, giant bullseye for all that ordinance you've been stashing away.

But most Chaos terminators are wearing Indomitus armor.

Is this just another case like Mk V power armor where it was just being released and the traitors stockpiled it? Or are those just loyalist armors that they appropriated during raids in real space?

Honestly, I know the reason is because for the longest time that was the only version of terminator armor, but I kind of wish that GW would release some chaos terminators in warp tainted or daemonic Cataphractii armor.

Indomitus Armor, supposedly, was rolled out just before the Heresy. They obviously lacked the Crux Terminus, but they were there along with Cataphractii and Tartaros. But by the Heresy, Cata was in decline and Indom was found to be a it more useful. Eventually it would have been replaced by Tartaros, but the Heresy put a stop to that. The Iron Hands "Gorgon" Pattern is just a beefed up Indomitus armor.

Here's a better visual for their 'cobra' nickname. The backplate armour formed a hood over the chassi, rather than simply be incorporated into the rest. As the first homebrew, relying on Mechanicus technology alone, it is commendable. In comparison to other is appears alternately weaker yes more mobile, like a turtle.

>>391454

The modern armours are marks 3-4-5. Daka forums have a nice long timeline figuring this shit out, can't recall how I found it myself though.

The mark 8-9 Astartes 'Errant' pattern was supposed to be the convergence of terminator tactical dreadnought plate and standard Astartes power armour, but this was later rolled back to merely enhancing the armour of the legs, groin, collar and upgrading the helmet. This left out the rest of the enhancements and incorporated power fist.

So, the Imperium gets Girlyman, the Eldar get Ynnead, the Necrons have more and more tombs waking up, Chaos is proverbially tearing the galaxy in half, the Tyranids come in at ever-greater numbers (even if Leviathan is fish-food).

Both of these are empty platitudes that change nothing, like how Ghaz's WAAGH is now the largest seen in millennia.

Don't worry, Ork boyz. You're not alone. Every non-Imperium, non-Aeldari, non-Nurgle player is feeling fucked over narratively too.


 No.392051

>>392047

I wouldnn't put it quite as harshly. The Imperium and the Aeldari always had their shining moments of glory but otherwise were on a perpetual downward spiral of doomy doom. Girlyman and Ynnead actually give them a realistic fighting chance, for a change.

By comparison, Tyranids and Necrons are more of the creeping doom style villains; the only reason why they actually can be defeated currently being that there's simply not of them around yet. And coming to think of it, Orkz actually kind of fall into the same niche - it's heavily suggested that there's Orkz even outside of the galactic disc. Meaning that, if shit goes down in the Milky Way, you get a FUCKHUEG Waaagh on an intergalactic scale.

I mean, the Orkz kinda (...kinda) are like an immune system. The more fighting is going on, the more of them are drawn towards them. Old Emps basically conquering the entire galaxy in the name of humanity brought up The Great Beast, and with the way stuff is going around right now, who is there to say that we will not see something significantly orkier coming to knock on the galactic front door?

Next thing you know, Orkz can probably summon a proverbial Avatar of Gork (or possibly Mork) onto the battlefield. Then again, it also would make sense that the entire Orkoid race acts as the body of Gork and Mork, kinda like the tendrils of the Tyranid Hive Fleets are just the fingers of the Hivemind

Anyone else pick up the latest White Dwarf? fuck that kill team box looks good. Its a story set so those aren't 'just' new nurgle models but the actual rogue traders crew after the geller field failed on the engine levels with a story campaign about retaking the ship as the engineering crew are spreading 'granpappys gift' to the higher levels.

we nurgle dead space now and the models are tight as shit. They also made models for maggots and fly swarms finally. looks great.

My FLGS is getting super hard into it since its pretty cheap to get a base group apparently. I spent £30 on 3 easy build packs, one of death guard and two of pox walkers and from what i've seen if you make the DG melee i'll have enough or just need one more DG easy build kit or a champion to be set.

I've always been curious about Gorkamorka. I wonder what an 8th Ed KT mode where each player gets one free cheap transport in addition to their 100 or so point force? Like an SM force would get a Rhino, but they would also need at least three models minimum for a squad. Max number of models would be 15, not counting the transport. You could also add the usual codex upgrades, if any, for your transport. But any upgrades would come out of your 100 points. Transports would be able to safely carry up to their normal limit. However, if the transport has the Open Top special rule (If it still exists), then you could go over the limit by 5. But everytime you do this, you will have to put the extras on the top/sides or where ever they could ride from. If they fall while you are moving the transport model, then the fallen model has to take an automatic hit. Wheeled vehicles would probably be a S5 fall, while skimmers would be a S6. Scenarios would be typical "hold this point until" or "gather tokens" or "Destroy your opponents transport."

Mentor Legion

8th edition

I'd like to think they directly contributed to the Ultima founding, having a direct line to the Emperor and top of Mars, developing techniques like the ten man squad split, advanced bolt rifles and auspexes.

I'm a tad concerned though. They definitely made it to the modern age, two stories taking place close to present, yet no revisit of the chapter's state has occured. We at least got a comment about the wherabouts and state of the similar Minotaurs, but no such mention for the owl lads.

Their noted actions have centered near Segmentum Tempestus, meaning they likely are based within and so were not caught on the wrong side of the Cycatrix Malectdictum.

I'd like to hope Cawl actually did sneak some second or eleventh primogentor chapters in, and they would certainly be one of the outliers that fit the bill, along with the Rainbow Warriors.

Anyone got anything alluding to their state? Rumours? I see they get a mention in the marine codex, but all pics are fuzzy and they get no special gear.

Go for Mk 3 Marines. Then get a Plagburst Crawler or two. This page could help you. https://1d4chan.org/wiki/WIP. Remember to clean up your models then prime, then base coat then detail or wash then detail. If you're on the fence about a particular unit or model, just assemble it then get a few games in with it to see how it works.

On a more serious note, I would imagine the game would have retained its focus on small-scale combat from the early Rogue Trader era. The Hrud would be replaced by space-faring Chupacabras, the Emperor is revealed to have been Jesus, and Necromunda is way more popular than it currently is because everyone has his or her own personal Necromunda in the neighborhood anyway.

40k is more myth than set in stone. Every edition has inclusions, exclusions, retellings, alternate takes, and explorations of footnotes.

For example Ward made the Grey Knights kill a bunch of Sisters of Battle and wear their blood as a ward against corruption. This was completely unnecessary, but more importantly the tale was retold in the next edition without that little bit of grimderp.

There are details that get mentioned in Rogue Trader days that don't get brought up again until thirty years later. Y'nnead and the Y'nnari for example. The potential Chekhov's foreshadowing is worth the read.

Its not like he's a bad model or anything but uh, id like some more modularity if the SL can carry special weapons (flamer mite b cool).

Alright, I'll take it into account. With that in mind that saves me from another 20 dollar model.

My last question before this conversion purchase before I start on my first models ever here is the wording in the Codex:

4 Chaos Space Marines, one Aspiring Champion, may take up to 5 additional CSMs.

I'm assuming the additional CSM do no add anymore slots to the 4 Special / Heavy weapons but are there to Serve as meatshields. But couldn't you have two Havoc Squads assuming each has 4 CSM and 1 SL, each with the ability to have more CSM Meatshields?

The important part is the size of the particulates. Some paints have larger particles that are designed to clump together over small gaps to smooth out surface scrapes. That's the opposite of what you want in a mini paint. As long as particles are small and the bonding agent doesn't clump, you don't need specialized paint.


 No.393499

>>393337

Smaller brushes aren't important. Use the largest brush you can handle (a 2 instead of a 0/00 if possible). All that matters for detail is the size of the point, not the size of the body of the brush. And the larger body prevents the whole thing from drying out as fast giving you longer to work. Big body, fine point; that's why the well-made ermine hair ones are so good.
