    Those Annihilation Beams are aptly named, just a pity they’re on such a weak platform.

    One thing that's occurred to me with the new RP rules.

    It makes the destroyers little injector pal a must take.

    So they shoot a bunch of heavy weapons at your destroyers. You tank the first hit on the little dude. The second one kills a destroyer.

    You go to roll your dice. You get two successes, not enough for a destroyer. But it is enough for their buddy who pops back into existence, ready to soak another shot.

    Repeat.

    I like his rules. Fight last aura. Lots of buffs. Hits like a truck. Has basically 26 wounds because the floating shields take the first 10 wounds of hits.

    The new Dynasty traits seem overall good to me, multiple good choices to choose from.

    Hell, even the two shown custom traits look good. Why yes I will take +1 armour again dmg one weapons for my silver horde and old fly back for my doomsday arks, thank you.

    I also get the feeling he has more than what was shown, but I have nothing to base that on. There's a captive C'tan there, why not have C'tan powers?

    He has too many wounds to have Necrodermis, alas.

    The WarCom article mentions that he has several other special rules.

    They outright said as much in the last paragraph of the article. Not sure if C’tan powers straight up or a means to buff C’tan on the field. I mean they’ve been placing Szarekh next to the Void Dragon in the promo shots a lot…

    Those new Dynasty traits are crazy good in comparison to 8th Edition's army-wide bonuses

    Makes me grimace thinking about playing against those type of rules with an old Codex

    Well with the necron preview I am now curious about the rest of the armies

    I do hope they replace the current C'tan and have a generic c'tan for sale outside of the Tesseract Vault

    I just finished the Dark Apostle trilogy. I read it years ago, but I wanted to re-read what with me making a Word Bearers Crusade army and all. I had totally forgotten the third book was about the Word Bearers using a miniature Pariah Nexus to isolate an Imperial world.
    It was kind of cool to see the way it described people being affected by the nexus was the same as was described in the Psychic Awakening books/short stories. I suppose I just didn't expect the current fluff to so closely match what happens in a random novel from a decade ago.

    Crusade really seems like fun, I hope I'm able to get one going despite the people I play with all having toddlers now (and this whole pandemic thing...) :P

  • BurnageBurnage Registered User regular
    The pandemic has seriously killed my tabletop gaming this whole year, and, honestly, I don't think I'll be wanting regular games again until 2021.

    I'm perfectly happy to catch up on painting before then.

    It's also funny seeing how much denser GW can do sprues now. The Exorcist has less sprues than the Rhino, due to this

    Crusade is a ton of fun.

    Solid RPG elements and gives you real connections to you army.

    Do we have any idea when the quad bike, primaris bikers and assault intercessors are gonna be on sale?
    Not in a box set with necrons, but just the individual units?

  • Halos Nach TariffHalos Nach Tariff Can you blame me? I'm too famous.Registered User regular
    I believe the quad bike is on pre-order next weekend? The assault guys there's no date that I know of but I'd guess before the end of October, probably, bikes I have no idea, I don't think they've shown them outside of the easy to build boxsets version yet.

    That's because the rhino was set up by hand the newer sprues were designed as well as the models on the computer

    I really have not played that much other than my brother. I would paint more but work really puts me into a malaise because of how bad it's gotten
    Bits n fits it was also the lack of primer

    40 stratagems in codex necrons. That's as much as four tens. Why? That seems needlessly many.

    Given how many sweet stratagems my Death Guard got in PA, I am very interested to see these 40.

    There are 27 at the moment, so it's about a 50% increase, about in line with what other factions got with PA.

  • ArdolArdol Registered User regular
    So there's a strat for Rites of Reanimation which lets you do the ability twice...in the Command Phase. Seems to me that means there must be a way to revive already destroyed models

  • honoverehonovere Registered User regular
    Probably something like return d3 wounds worth of dead models to a unit.

    There's most likely a strat that is specific for each unit and then at least one strat for each dynasty. That's got to be over 20 already.

    Hey guys, quick question: Have any of you bought or used a battle mat from playmats.eu (Lukas Schmidt Playmats)? I'm looking at buying one from a local shop, a big 6x4, but I've never bought a vinyl mat before and wonder if the quality is decent.

    Necron codex leaks have started. Naturally, it's a French version of the codex, but insane fans being insane fans, the translations have begun.

    Unique C’tan Powers
    Deceiver - Cosmic Madness
    Pick an enemy unit within 12”. Roll a D6 and add this C’tan Shard leadership to the result. Your opponent roll a D6 and add the leadership of the chosen unit to the result. Enemy unit suffers 1 MW for each point of difference between the two scores.

    Nightbringer - Gaze of Death
    Pick a visible enemy unit within 9”. Roll 3D6 : for each 4+ the unit suffers D3 MW.

    Void Dragon - Voltaïc Tempest
    Pick a visible enemy unit within 18” (characters with a wound characteristic of 9 or less cannot be picked while they are within 3” of another enemy unit or is the character is the closest visible enemy model).
    Roll D6 : on a 2+, the unit suffers D3 MW (it suffers D6 MW instead if it has the vehicle keyword) and, until your next turn, if the unit is a vehicle with a degrading profile, divide by half its current wounds to determine which profile it use.

    Looks like a bunch of Codex leaks are popping up... I can't see the images on Imgur while at work, but reddit has the below listed as notable.

    https://imgur.com/a/Lh4Q7hJ

    Noteworth finds:
    -Chap on bike, does not get +2 attacks on charge
    -Lancer variant gets aquilon optics, which is just +1 to hit, not shoot twice.
    -Explicitly no bolter discipline EVER for centurions. Oof, big nerf
    -There ARE some restrictions on what specialist chapters can take, but mostly only if the chapter in question already has an alternate version
    -no restrictions for Blood Angels
    -LEGION OF THE DAMNED mentioned, which is a real teaser
    -Hammerfall bunker doesn't deepstrike like hte lore suggests, and is BS4
    -gladiators are T8, which at least makes comparing to Leman russ tank commanders really easy.
    -Stormspeeder thunderstrike (the anti-air one) appears to have BS2, which would make up for its otherwise lackluster armament
    -Thunderstrike has also repeated the ever-annoying valkyrie armament issue, of being armed with "stormfury missiles", which is the actual weapon name. Thus it shoots only ONE of the profile named "Stormfury missiles", but I foresee many months of players erroneously assuming it has two (because it does have two missiles modeled)

    That's interesting. They could never use centurions, nor the old boxy dread models before (they had their own dreadnought kit). There were some others they couldn't use either but I can't recall.

    I want to say non primaris apothecaries since they had their own variant?
