    I grabbed the two new 30k greens from GW, Sons of Horus and Lupercal green, thinking I'd do a Sons of Horus color scheme... but man do I not like the lighter of the two. It's a very chalky pastel green.

    I might just end up going black legion as 1) black is super easy to paint, and 2) it seems to look consistently good across the whole chaos range.

    Next White Dwarf has rules for Eisenhorn and Deamons for Kilteam. Also Gabriel Angelos gets his own datasheet in the Blood Ravens Index Astartes.

    Angelos has had a data sheet for a while from Forge World.

    Finally my little brother will achieve his dreams of fighting his fiancee's Slaanesh models in Kill Team. He plays Grey Knights. I'm giving him a lot of side-eye right now.

    The only difficult part is picking a color scheme for my Chaos models... deciding on which legion to play is agonizing.

    I did word bearers long ago. I did what was warlock purple over black and a ton of wash then watered down crimson
    I am curious if the Gal Vorbak color is the same as it kind of looks like it with the word bearers layer this might match up to what I did long ago

    The reason I did Word Bearers was this was the first CSM codex and I did not want to do the Black Legion and the World Eaters would have been interesting at the time but there was some very ugly people I played 40k with at the time {the it's my ball I am going home with it type of ideal more long of the words of you cannot do them I am and I don't want people to get confused}
    No one did the Word Bearers in the area and their lore was pretty much nothing at the time. So I don't regret what I did just knowing what I have to do to res my army is what stops me [as well at the horrible time I had playing them}

    Now that Sisters is on the horizon, I've been seriously thinking about buying more IG, so that I can have marines/Sisters/IG/knight.

    That was always the dream.

    Of course right after I buy a Repulsor, GW teases a dedicated transport. Someone I was talking to thinks it may be limited to Phobos pattern units though, as a way to differentiate it from the Repulsor and Executioner. Would be interesting, especially if they gave it the same infiltration ability the units have. Bringing in a few "Rhinos" worth of infiltrators when and where you choose could be a pretty stout tactical addition to the standard Primaritau gun line.

    That's the only way I could see a phobos-exclusive transport not being kind of a bizarre move.

    Oh, is that all? The video is cute but the rampant speculation about the new dreadnought and new vehicle from out of focus minis seems pretty pointless.

  • GnomeTankGnomeTank Registered User regular
    I mean it's clearly a new Primaris transport, and those are clearly multi-part Eliminators to the right in the video (around the dread). Given that we know Eliminators have a new weapon (thanks to Apoclypse) it makes some sense. Sorry if our "pointless" speculation about incoming space marine kit bothers you.

    Listen just make it clear that you're wishlisting, we've got a poor quality picture of a rhino chasis and suddenly it's a new dedicated transport that's possibly Phobos only.

    The only thing we can "clearly" see about it is that it has side sponsons and some kind of turret.

    I tried to make the female body work but I figured out after I did it that the kit is set up for certain body plans the rest is go wild

    Got my first game of my clubs annual competetive leauge tonight. Playing the same list I took to the team event.

    My first opponent is triple wave serpent, triple crimson hunter exarchs and harlequin bikes. A whole lot of minus to hit.

    Seeing as I play Tau, RIP game one.

    So knights round 3. Curious why the melee knight is more expensive than his loyalist. At this point I figure it is just a chaos tax because that would be in line with stuff. Also the new laser destructor is kind of not great.

    The laser destructor seems pretty great. Wounds everything that isn't toughness 8 on a 2+ and has the potential to do 9 wounds, 3 of which are mortal. It is also long range so it can be used to blast targets from safe distances.

    I think if it wasn't random number of shots it would be fine. That random number of shots hurts it a lot.

    A quick mathhammer on it:

    It averages 3.8 wounds to a vehicle and 2 wounds to a knight.

    It's like a slight better lascannon. It is underwhelming especially verse the new repulsor gun with a base damage of 3.

    Edit:

    Here is the kit.

    Yeah, compared to the repulsor it's a bit crap, as it really relies on rolling that six to wound. The repulsor damage output is much more reliable and it can shoot twice when going slow and has longer range.

    Yea, that all definitely makes sense for why that destructor isn't that great. I just always play against models that are toughness 5 or better so seeing anything that would let me wound on a 2+ makes me pretty excited.

    Also thinking about picking up my apoc pre order from the LGS at midnight. Also kind of want to get some movement trays but I'm already buying too much as is.

    I plan on getting the movement trays for my swarm
    Just I fear primering them

  • StragintStragint Do Not Gift Always DeclinesRegistered User regular
    I'm not sure I'd base the trays if I get any. I have an absolutely stupid quantity of 32mm bases between my Necrons and Space Wolves and if I take the 25mm bases off my Necron Warriors and base them on 32mm bases I'll have another 100 32mm for my Necron side.

    I'd rather not base them so they could be universally used by either faction.

    I also have a good chunk of 40mm bases on both side.

    It definitely looked really good and I really want to do it. Eventually I probably will.

    I still don't even know what kind of base I want to put my Necrons on. The Space Wolves are all going to have cracked ice bases.

    Okay laser destructor is back on the menu boys.

    There is a relic that replaces it that makes it:

    Heavy 3 Str 16 AP -4 D6 with the unmodified roll of a 6 to wound does mortal wounds.

    Also there are god based thrones. Slaanesh gives +1 to advance and charge rolls. Tzeentch let's you smite and deny a power and you automatically blow up.

    You can also command point farm with them. And a warlord trait let's you deny a power. Also the last one that is amazing, helm of warpsight-ignore all to hit modifiers. That is nuts. You can destroy eldar flyers with it.

    Well.

    That's certainly going to cause some issues for Eldar lists. It's not just the Flyers that rely on negative modifiers for defense.

    Especially because you can bring dual avenger gatling cannons.

    Then you can make one of them str 7 ap -2 d3 with 12 shots. And then you can reroll all those attacks. I am not sure if there is a relic version as well like the loyalist. There is the relic flamer I guess.

    Chaos Knights are the anti-eldar flyer spam. They can pop two flyers a turn.

    Most stripping agents that I've tried do bad, bad things to Finecast. We're talking loss of detail down to straight up melting the model.

    The weirdest case was where the model didn't lose any details at all but became floppy.

    I've been reading through the apoc rulebook for how to build armies and points and such. It looks like when it talks about power levels it means to add the power level of each army together for the size of the game.

    I've been wondering if my friends would really be able to engage in any apoc since my friends each respectively have 2000 points of Blood Angels and 2000 points of Custodes and some IG he is working on.

    Might actually be able to play some apoc with them.

    Edit: I don't usually use my monolith for my Necrons but in apoc they say it can deep strike and then immediately spew out a squad of units in reserve.

    Can it do that in 40K? The rules don't seem to support that in 40K.
