Lynn Mywin did, then the Inquisition kicked the stupid out of her and turned her into Zaeed Massani in elf girl form.
that or a camo phase, like taldeer
With 'learned folks' I meant people who know about the Eldar but aren't necessarily moral upstanders.

I was thinking the Imperium should have an edgelord subculture that can be either harmless or a thorn on the Arbites' side.

>or better yet, no response unless someone important, like a local but still distant astartes chapter or inquisitor, takes a particular interest in his shadow war
>but before he can secure the system the tide is already shifting, PDF remnants that fled into the hills can't be rooted out, and they're picking off every man he sends to kill them with deadly long plasma guns and precision missile strikes
>Their tactics have changed, much improved over the feckless semi-professional force he'd intentionally softened before making his play, now radically different from any Imperial soldiery he'd observed
Imperial edgelord culture would be an interesting mix of Eldar edgelord stuff, sexualized Isharite lore, the weird aristocratic fur coat catholic BDSM, cyberpunk slum dweller look from a lot of the older warhammer art, with a mix of the hyper-militant and the satirically militant. Essentially, they're humans pretending to be in vanilla 40K without realizing it, as the extension of what we've toned down. They'd all be anti-chaos for the most part, though possibly venerating Magnus and Ahriman as patrons of the civilized occult, and would have various cultural rules across various subcultures in the vast galaxy that would distinguish them from the likes of Slaaneshies.

Any marine faction aside from Heretic Astartes is pretty solid (and even then they're okay if you want to do cultist spam) and fairly straightforward to play.
Really KT isn't a super complex game though, I'd go for whichever faction you think is the coolest models/lore/rules-wise.

You can download the rulebook from the OP mega and leaf through it to get an idea of what each faction has to offer.
Hey anons I've been reading through the rules and can't decide which faction I should start with to make my first kill team. I'm divided between Admech, Necrons, and Thousand Sons. Which of these do you find the most fun?
Admech, definitely. Powerful guns, but balanced by low toughness, so you need to actually move and use cover. Unless of course you bring 6 plasmas with omnispex support and just ready each turn like a faggot you are.
Necrons are pretty boring in KT desu but both AdMech & Tsons are a ton of fun and get some cool rules/wargear. Really comes down to whether you want to play a team of cyborgs or Egyptian space wizards. I will say that Tsons comes with everything you'll need right out of the box though, wereas AdMech you might have to get some extra bits for a decent team.

KT is cheap enough that you could feasibly do both eventually, you only really need 1-2 boxes for each of those factions. AdMech is getting a new starter box too with a commander & some sicarians if that's something you're interested in.

And that's that! Let me know what you think. It's been a fun and challenging project (designing a fully multicolor set is rough, especially tricolor). Honestly, though, it isn't my favorite set that I've made and I'm not too fussed to see the back of it. I'll be able to call it all the way done after tweaking and finalizing cards based on your feedback. After that, I have absolutely no idea what I should do next, though. I'll have to dream on a new concept.

Maybe I'm just being a brainlet, but I'm not sure if the various uses of "it" refer to the exiled card or the creature that died.
The Awaken part of this seems overcosted, even if, as I suspect, it's only there to be an emergency option for someone who controls no creatures.

>What does this accomplish by having the tokens deal damage instead of the spell that creates them?
Nothing much beyond flavor, really.
>Is this meant to let you cast any card that Dreamweaver ever exiled, or only the one that was just revealed?
Just the one that was exiled that turn.
>The Awaken part of this seems overcosted, even if, as I suspect, it's only there to be an emergency option for someone who controls no creatures.
Yeah, it's a mana sink, not necessarily the main draw of the card.
>Why doesn't the Inspirit effect grant trample and haste when all of the other Inspirit cards also transfer keywords?
Oversight on my part. Fixed now, thanks!

Necromancy doesn't exist, so what's the default evil school of magic that's banned everywhere, is seen as generally evil, ect? Bonus points for being unconventional.

There is no point for evocation in a modern peaceful society. You're literally playing around with fire. These spells of war can only be cast to harm others.
>implying Necromancy is actually evil in and of itself
>Abjuration & Evocation are not inherently bad in any way
They aren't inherently evil, but nor are they inherently good - succubi use Abjuration magics to conceal the fact they mean to suck your soul out through your lips, and Balors use Evocation to boil the collective flesh off of an entire city's bones.
>Necromancy & Enchantment either pollute the world with negative & anathema energies to life itself or robs people of free will. While they can be used for good causes, they by nature are bad for life.
This is more complicated, and depends on the metaphysics of the setting. They're both near the bottom of the list for a reason, but simply put: the schools as a whole have no individual agency, and as such cannot be considered lowercase-g-good or lowercase-e-evil.

For anyone who can't think of positive uses, Enchantment spells can be used to halt potential battles before a single drop of blood is spilled, motivate people to surpass the limits of their own mental fortitude, or help them recover from psychological trauma, just as Necromancy, depending on the setting, could be used only on willing subjects, can diagnose and triage the injured to heal them better, or even limit itself to the simplest spells to act like precision Evocation.
That's not magical fire, so it's not as bad. Magical fire is mine only. As long as they pray or thank me at least once in their lives I'm okay with it.
I never said Abjuration or Evocation were “good” in an alignment sense. Just Morally good as in morally okay, “good to go” in other words.

Necromancy & Enchantment must be put to good use to counter the inherent deplorable nature & even then most would be dubious of it.


Nice article about GW in The Guardian.

The Guardian is the only large newspaper giving climate change the coverage it warrants with the urgency its due, so its good in my book.

I'll lend a hand and throw you a doc.

I would but they would certainly get some odd looks, especially starting out. All unproven knights are given some guff but the guff would be extra in this case. Then again a rich famous Dame would be very popular with men at court who would push very hard to back her up in the hopes of marrying such a knight.

>It genuinely wasn't always like this.
This. Its almost like a lot of people took the "internet hate machine" jokes a little too seriously. We've never hated everything. Sure there have always been disagreements about the tiniest of details, but there have also been times when whole boards band together behind something fun or interesting. Deep Rot would be a great example for /tg/, but other boards have their own little shining moments.
On the other hand the last year has just been exhausting. Even old classics are being attacked because they're "cringe" or whatever buzzword is in the last month. Nothing can just be left alone and enjoyed anymore. I don't really know what caused it. Maybe its post election antagonism, maybe its the ironic cynicism that 4chan has classically trucked in becoming less ironic as people move in that don't get the joke.

Or maybe I'm just getting too old to keep up. I've been here for 11 years, maybe I need to move on, but I have nowhere else to go.

Why doesn't a good /tg/ alternative exist?
Because a good 4chan alternative doesn't exist.

There just isn't a place that has the same kind of culture about vulgarity, fun and discussion as this place. Every imitator has failed, because they simply can't attract enough oldfags to transplant the culture, if such a thing is even possible.

There are other places that discuss RPGs on the internet, but none where you can good naturedly call the other guy a niggerfaggot then go to another thread where people are seriously discussing the finer points of lamia cloacas.
Its absurd in many ways, but the vulgarity and ridiculousness is part of the uniqueness of this place.

More like wannabe Ultramarines, you idiot
They do everything the same except they suck at it
Say what you want about I CATO SICARIUS or Marneus but they actually can win a battle without being pointlessly slaughtered
They make lives of billions better by improving their home planet, instead of pointlessly dying "saving" handful of half-dead prisoners (who were willing to die because A) they were dead already, B) even they couldn't stand how stupid Lamenters were) helping no one
When UM are kicked, they strike back instead of pointlessly dying (again) like bitches

Really, I the only thing am still shocked about is that local alt-rightards didn't look at 'bleeding heart' chapter symbol and didn't label Lamenters some shit like SJWenters or Libtarders or some other nonsense they found on trump twitter
t. smurf lord
Absolutely righteous.

They're not retarded, they just have your great-great-great grandad's politics.
You still got some blue paint on your lips there pal
sure, like Ultramarines without the paint scheme, politics, iconography, attitude, and plot armor. The only reason the smurfs are as successful as they are is because writers bend over backwards for them. The Lamentors are meanwhile a perfectly fine functioning chapter, they're tragedy is that they're cursed by the universe to suffer no matter how much they do right. But they still drive ahead in-spite of it and that's infinitely more badass than everything always going right when it does because GW wanted their poster boys to sell.

But that's such a great thematic angle. We run in the Early Modern Period, 17th-18th century, and the advent of matchlocks and the spread of centralized government bureaucracy is forcing an upheaval. Old world aristocracy has to adapt or lose its power to banks, offices, and ministries. Standing armies are now cheaper and more easily trained and levied. Magic is finally challenged by cheaper, more accessible technology. Industrial revolutions are a great backdrop to drama.

And besides, early guns are so cool looking.

Don't worry, I cry every time I see 99% of /tg/ discuss guns. The other day I saw a guy saying that .45 ACP blows limbs off. Fuddlore is strong among the /tg/ crowd it seems.

What is /awg/?
A thread to talk about minis and games which fall between the cracks, or peoples' homebrew wargames. The Historical Wargames General doesn't entertain fantasy (for good reason) and the other threads are locked to very specific games, so this thread isn't tied to a game, or a genre, let's talk about fun wargames.

Any scale, any genre, any company, any minis. Skirmishers welcome. Rules designers welcome.

>Examples of games that qualify
Grimdark Future, Age of Fantasy, Mighty Armies, Dragon Rampant, Of Gods and Mortals, Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Hordes of the Things, Songs of Blades and Heroes, Freebooter's Fate, Dark Age, Beyond the Gates of Antares, LotR and anything that doesn't necessarily have a dedicated thread (gorkamundheim).

It's like normal but it has reactions, more magic options (more than the original's like...2? Or maybe it was just 1), and some more special rules/traits you can use.

Essentially any good things said about SoBaH applies to Advanced.
The reactions are very cool, IMO, and work very easily with the basic's initiative system.

My issue with centurion mode is that it doesn't represent anything, it is simply the arbitrary exclusion of units for no real reason, ZM has a theme that justifies its restrictions, centurion mode doesn't. For example lets say you wanted cinematic battles (hordes of marines battling each other and big epic duels with powerful heroes), you might do something like.
>All mandatory troop choices must number at least 20 models (for Custodes and Sisters 10 models)
>All independent characters inflict instant death with all close combat attacks, if the target has eternal warrior the attacks instead inflict d3 wounds
>Primarchs do not take up a lord of war slot
>Any independent character who doesn't have eternal warrior may purchase it for 30 points

or if you wanted light raids and scouting forces where none of the big commanders are
>May not take any lords of war
>May not take any special characters
>May not take any Lord Marshals, Blackshield Reaver Lords, Praetors, or Archmagos Prime, Archmagos Reductor, or Archmagos whatever the beep boop order is called again
>No individual unit may cost more than 300 points
>Only 2 HQs and 3 elites slots

So you can get some heavy units, but you won't be able to compile a 500 point death star with 10 two wound terminators and a murder machine praetor leading it, nor will you be able to afford 4 leviathan dreadnoughts, but the core army composition isn't affected, you can take "elite" units, but fielding them in large numbers is difficult and will likely result in using up multiple slots that could be better used elsewhere. Overall it does very little to inhibit your access of lighter and scrub units (can easily buy full sized tac squads and probably full sized assault squads with some upgrades), but since your front is of lesser concern to Horus or the Emperor you have greater difficulty acquiring elite units and heavier/rarer vehicles.
Well you are a phosphex and medusa spamming scumbag so you probably deserve it.
