    I'll be honest, I do actually kinda like Tau. I think if I were to collect another army it would be Tau. Just want to finish my 'nids collecting first, which wont be anytime soon.

    I wish they looked a bit more varied though, they seem a bit... Boring in their visual appearance sometimes.

    I really like Tau, if only because they add a bit of variety. I just wish more people played them.

    So, another rumour about where the Tyranid Harpy went.
    Harpy was designed as a dual kit, but i havent seen the final version. It was supposed to make a ground based unit as well.
    It doesnt make sense because of that to be a "flyers" kit release. Plus they have additional finecast characters done and the new redesign of one unit i still cant reveal.

    Come on Cerebore.

    Redesign of one unit huh

    Please be Raveners. Or the Pyrovore maybe. Or my precious carnifex.

    EDIT: I am jumping to conclusions here that it was to be a rules redesign, but that's probably not it, heh.

    I can't really think of any Nid unit that particularly needs a redesign, the nid models are some of the nicest I think. I suppose Biovores are the only ones that spring to mind as kinda bad looking?

    And Warriors haven't had a new kit in quite a while, but they look good anyway...

    Hive guard are a recent investment for them so I doubt they'd do it, but plastic hive guard would be amazing. Dudes like to pose like each other 24/7...

    Well I know they and many other companies are trying to get away from metal so plastic/resin hive guard might not be a dream

    I suppose they could do a Hive/Tyrant Guard dual kit.

    I mean they're basically the exact same model with different arms.

    Just a question in general: How would an Imperial Guard, Tau, or similar army that depends on ranged weaponry contend with Necron lists that have Solar Pulses. It's just disturbing that an item can shut down the first two turns of shooting with no effort on the part of the Necron Player.

    Question to those who have ordered custom dice from Chessex...are their prices for the whole lot? Or how many of each die you're ordering? I.e. if I want something with a skull on the 6, do I get the 50-dice price if I order 25 skulls and 25 hammers? Or would it have to be 50 skulls?

    Tau get blacksun filters on stuff like broadsides, so that pretty much negates the nightfighting. Guard, well I never had to fight necrons. Imagin it would depend on the list. I have 6 chimeras that are moving forward in my lists, as they have short range shooting them them, ant ahve searchlights, so anything they spot is going to get hammered. Barrage stuff can still fire too, if more inaccurate, and manticores can shread warriors. Vendettas/valkeries have searchlights too, so you can scout right up near them to spot them for the rest of the army.

    If BA and Necrons are actually restricted allies options, I will probably stop playing 40k.

    I'll second that.

    Since your name means "swedish" in swedish, I just assumed you were, ya know, swedish.

    I find Valks/vendettas are good spotters against necrons. They can fly up close with scout, spot light an important target, then the rest of your army has no trouble blasting it from range.

    I know I'm a few posts late, but it was cinqo de mayo so let it go.

    These new rumors have to be shit. The mechanics rumors seem pretty flawed. We've all seen how well WHFB got adopted when they added in all that stuff (hint: not well), now they want to do the same thing to their only profitable game system? That seems bad from every perspective.

    The fluff rumors are just fucking stupid. Why would the highly racist imperium protect the Tau? The entire background for humanity thus far suggests that if the Tau were immune to Chaos the humans would be putting them in concentration camps and cutting them apart by the thousands trying to figure out why. Not sending chapters of marines to protect them.

    Never mind the fact that there is a motto which binds the entirety of man together in the grim dark future.

    "Abhor the witch. Suffer not the heretic. Purge the Xeno." Or something like that. Each chapter is different but it's ingrained into them.

    In short. This rumor is wrong, and who ever thought it up should be purged.

    I'd be inclined to believe the allies rumour because it is a solution to GW's problem. And by problem, I mean "How do we sell even more models?"

    BA were fighting some Necrons. Battling it out and killing each other like you'd expect. Tyranid's show up. BA and Necrons look at the new threat and say to themselves, "Well fuck.... That is a much bigger threat!" so they each individually start fighting the Tyranids. The Tyranids are defeated. The Necron leader was one of the ones that still adheres to the old ways and the rules of honourable combat, etc. The Blood Angels realized that they sustained heavy, heavy losses, and they could not continue the fight against the Necrons with the reduced troop strength, so each side let the other go on its way.

    The internet interprets that as them being best buds now.

    At the same time I still think the Inquisition should destroy the sons of Sanguinius and Russ, since they're heretics.

  • SJSJ Registered User regular
    you forgot about the part where the blood angels didn't want to fight against their honorable allies

  • NaxNax Registered User regular
    Well, the thing is this: The Inquisition can't really do shit to the Adeptus Astartes. The Astartes tolerate them because they respect the fact that the Emperor left the High Lords in charge, and the High Lords trust the Inquisition. As soon as the Inquisition step on the toes of the Astartes and don't back down, the Astartes will wipe them out.

    They went after the Wolves and the Wolves destroyed their fleet. They backed off. I have zero doubt in my mind that if they had sent another fleet, Grimnar would have gone on a full scale offensive. I also have no doubt that it could have caused another civil war. This is why the only thing I hope is true from that rumors list is the fact that the Astartes are finally going to stop putting up with Terra's shit.

    Well, it was the Ecclesiarchy, sorry. I feel like my point still stands, though. Same principle

    EDIT: And the Inquisition has had chapters destroyed for some pretty serious reasons that were supported by the Astartes that had to enact the killing. Turning on the Space Wolves, though? The Blood Angels? No other chapter in the Imperium would willingly even attempt that. That is the main point I was trying to make, I guess. Law is just spouting crazy talk :P

    I'd like to read that reaction though... Some crazy fucking High Lord declaring war on the Wolves.... then Dante, Calgar, and Tu'Shan show up and they're all, "Wait, what? No."

    Wasn't even really the ecclesiarchy by that point. I mean sure it was led by a cardinal, but he'd basically made himself generalissimo of his own little republic by duping a bunch of worlds into thinking the Vandire thing had ripped the whole imperium apart and uniting under him was their only hope of salvation. So he actually ended up with something more like the Imperial Army from the days of the Heresy under his command. Except for the Space Marine contingent of course.
    Then the fool decided to throw the whole lot at the second most secure fortress in the imperium after Holy Terra itself and, naturally, got his butt kicked.

    ...because dragons are AWESOME! That's why.
