    str 4 on rear armor 10, so yes if you roll enough double taps you can glance him, blow off enough weapons or immobilize him and u can wreck him, ive done it to trukks and such. Or you can assault and crack grenade it.

    Or if you're space marines you can just punch it since basic marines are strong enough to rip through a main battle tank, which is the stupidest thing ever to me.

    Or they could just drop frag grenades down the exhaust or whatever, S4 against vehicles isn't hard to do. Even the Tau's fancy light shows can blow up a tank.

    That violin, well it could probably still take out a tank's rear armour. As long as a marine was playing it. That's why you need skimmer tanks, with flechette dischargers.

    Yea, its possible for a marine to blow a tank in CC, but you're hitting on 6s and then need 4s to glance, or 5s if its one of the Russes with the 11 rear. Odds aren't too great though, and you have to put yourself out in the open to be hit by whatever cannon the russ has mounted to it, which will most surely kill the marines far easier than needing 4s or 5s :)


    At any rate, I thought you were playing your league, because that's the last I heard of you playing your AC. If you were just testing rules, I would have definitely run at you headlong :)

    So, still kicking around idea's for my skitarii army I plan on creating... I'm thinking having a secutor as a stand in for guardsmen marbo, but I dunno... it would need some 'splaining.

    Man, I'm leaning in this direction as well. Mainly after reading Titanicus. Goddamn did he do a good job of making massive skitarii vs evil skitarii combat seem fucking brutal.

    What would they be proxied for though?

    I've already got a good few idea's down...

    Witch hunters(the basic troop choice) = Techpriests in a regular combat role
    Grey Knight Terminators = Mechanicus Terminators
    Marbo = Secutor
    Straken = A combat-oriented magos or other high up with a retinue of skitarii veterans
    Regular guardsmen = basic skitarii with few/no upgrades
    Rough Riders = Cyber mastiff's
    Conscripts = Servo-skulls/Servitors without servo-arms
    Techpriest Enginseer = ...duh

    The only thing I can't really figure out is a way to get knights in, as they're just more badass and huge than anything in any of those armies. Possibly a vendetta stand in.

    I cant url good so add me on steam anyways steamcommunity.com/id/Raslin

    Yeah, come to think of it, I've had trukks get immobilized from standard bolter fire (duh), with front armor 10. Also, grot riggers for the win! Get to work you weedy gitz!

    So, has anyone had experience playing against an army you also controlled? Sounds like 40k masturbation I know, but I meant, if I wanted to play with my buddy, against my own orks. Does this just sound fucking dumb and unbalanced?

    I would think if the Marines made it within 12" or CC of your tank, the game is probably over anyway since they likely wiped everything else out on your side to get to there.

    Good thing we're talking about Guardsman and how much they die! Here is my new army list, now not featuring Witch Hunters until I can get some better models for them.

    It's a command squad and two platoons, each platoon commanding 2 IG squads and a vet squad. I plan on, basically, deploying my Company Command behind cover in a Chimera next to my basilisk squad. I think I'll deploy my first platoon with them and hold my second in reserve then wing it; or should I just deploy errything and swarm stuff?

    anyway, here it is - feel free to tell me all the rules I've broken and stuff. Also, if someone could explain the chain of command to me; Platoon HQs can relay orders from Company HQs, and then issue their own, right? So a PHQ needs to be within 12" of my Chimera, and then they need to be within 6" of their units to issue orders to them. I gave everybody vox-casters since I plan to use the order system extensively.

    So uh.... I found two sentinels I haven't assembled yet, one of which is still in its shrink-wrap.:oops: So question time. As I sit here contemplating the building of Commissar Nisely's Mount, how do you all think I should show the commissar himself?

    So far I have two options. A) Get another of the old metal commissar with the axe and cut him down to fit as he's the model I've used for both the foot and Vanquisher versions of Nisely, or B) Use a combination of parts from the command squad with the assumption that Nisely's got a commissar version of the sentinel jumpsuits to use since a greatcoat really would be uncomfortable while sitting in a sentinel for a few hours.

    *Edit* I just decided on option B. Going to be making a plastic commissar standing in the cockpit waving his sword and pistol. I'm going to have to redo Captain Ein like this as well but carry a swagger stick and cigar.

    As it is I'm going to go back to the sentinels with the open cockpits and use the extra armor parts I didn't use from the enclosed sentinels to give them a bit more armor. The only ones with exposed pilots after that will be Ein, Nisely, and 'Wildcat' Garvel who pilots the Elysian Pattern drop sentinel. Those three will form the Command Squadron for the sentinel company with the three line squadrons being made up of two squadrons of Cadian pattern and one squadron of Armageddon pattern.

    Oh shit, Thewarstore has sentinel bits for really cheap. I may just pick up enough spare lascannons to give everyone one so I can field that awesome sentinel Apoc list. Those and Flamers :winky:

    I hate Space Marines.

    Why do they consistently get new units (all made out of plastic now too! Have swappable and posable body parts and interchangable fluff why don't you! As if you AREN'T over-represented enough!) whilst my beloved Eldar are stuck with crappy metal Aspects and leaders?

    THIS MAKES NO SENSE!

    Dire Avengers are the way forward for the Eldar miniature range as far as i'm concerned.

    But no, we get stuck with crap like this:

    It's just the fact they they're posed the same. I can't stand it and Warp Spiders are the best example of a near-impossible-unless-you're-a-freaking-conversion-god set of models.

    At least; if they're going to keep doing metal versions...can we have new models please? It's been years!

    Not metal so much as mono-pose. Those are technically five different models in that pic rather than four copies of one and one of another...

    All those plastic poses generally end up looking the same as they would if there were 4-5 metal sculpts. Look at the plastic cadians, those aren't interesting or characterful poses at all. Even models like Dire Avengers have the same basic two-handed gun pose with little variation. Only troops using pistols and ccws have the option for various poses, and even then there's only so much you can do with the basic arms. How many ways can you pose a sword and a bolt pistol using the arms given and have it look fresh?

    Please note that I don't believe metal is better than plastic or vice versa, it just bugs me when I read people pitting one medium against the other.

    I figured Cocytan regiments aren't very top heavy, and officers tend to wear multiple hats. My Company Commander, Captain Riennes, is also the platoon commander for my vets. I based their command structure off of Republican militias during the Spanish Civil War, so all of my officers are elected. Respected soldiers become officers, and not the other way around. As the lowest man on the totem pole around people who think rank actually means something, Daws would probably feel kind of shat on.

    Besides the fact that all the Sentinel officers in the regiment are dashing, seat of their pants, Han Solo bad-asses, Dawes probably feels awkward around them since I feel he's more of a no nonsense soldier. I'll probably promote him to a Lt at some point when he kills a few more Dreadnoughts.
