Either Pay 2 CP and save 85 points, see what the enemy brings and take the assassin which best suits you, or bring a vanguard detachment (no cp given unless you specifically bring one of each assassin but no -2 CP). In the vanguard shore up your army's weakest points. If you lack character sniping, taking a vindicare or two is never a bad choice, Culexus are great anti psyker and objective contester and Callidus completely ruin some armies turn 1/2 by forcing half their stratagems to pay 1 extra CP or do nothing.

I wouldnt take an Eversor in Space Marines mostly because hes best at killing what Intercessors are killing, Ork Boyz, Guardsmen etc. Good choices would 2x Vindicare 1x Callidus if you dont run into any Psykers, and 1x of Vindicare, Callidus and Culexus if you do.

The only contrast that might be useful is flesh tone. I always prime grey and start painting faces with a wash of thinned flesh paint anyway. I doubt the difference is going to be noticeable enough to make retarded GW markup prices worth it either way though.

First off, heres the index: https://imgur.com/a/kgH6ycq

The Callidus' use on the tabletop is quite passive until turn 3. Generally what you want to do is keep the Callidus hidden and protected to make use of their ability "Reign of Confusion", which means that whenever an opponent spends CP (this includes command point rerolls), on a 4+ from you they have to spend an extra CP or cancel their CP usage. This effectively doubles the cost of a lot of stratagems and make things seem much less worth it.

With "Supreme Deception", you can do this two battle rounds in a row. I have completely crumbled GSC armies because their CP intensive combos cost them an extra 3 or 4 CP and denied them a few of their CP rerolls.

Summoning needs to differentiate itself from deepstrike before it will ever be useful. Summoning also seems redundant for a lot of units that are fast like slaanesh.
Giving God related play styles summoning would help imo.

>nurgle summoning: 2 cp:mark a point within 3 inches of a character that has the <nurgle mark> or no <mark>, that character suffers d3 mortal wounds. for the rest of the game a unit of 10 plague bearers can appear from this point, or 10 plague bearers may be added to any existing unit of 20 or less plague bearers. The unit if plague bearers must be setup wholy within 6 inches if this point (the plague bearers do not count for reinforcement points)
>this only costs 1cp if each unit in your army shares the nurgle keyword

>slaanesh summoning: 1cp. before the first turn but after deployment, you may make 1 summon for each character with the <slaanesh mark or no defined mark>. This unit must summon a daemon with <slaanesh>, and may add 1d6 to their summon roll if their army has the slaanesh keyword. This summoned unit may then move up to its full distance but cannot advance. If their army has the slaanesh keyword, this unit may charge any unit outside the deployment zone

I still need to work off of tzeentch and khorne, any suggestions are appreciated.

>>
>>66245611
Maybe should add a "you may only use this power once, unless your entire army has the nurgle mark, in which case you may use this 3 times".

But that miiiiiight be a little extreme.

>>
>>66245556
It's likely that it is true. Judging by the arms, this was painted by the GW team, not the FW one, and while the GW team do occasionally use paints outside their range, a lot of them are involved in developing it, so they're biased towards basing color schemes on paints they actually make. We know contrast paints basically use ink-like transparent pigments, making them well-suited to the kind of paintjob they've done here.

Basically, contrast opens a lot of possibilities for people with limited paint selection, for example the ones who have terrible online shopping infrastructure but an LGS that stocks GW nearby.
>>
>>66245671
Iirc build the upper tracks first before placing the lower track. You want to dry fit it or else there will be a gap.

You can also sand a block of sprue and make a connection for the gap like it's a patchwork.

Oh, it will never happen. Not only is it used by any other non-land raider space marine tank, it's also needed for tons of FW kits. It also has endured the test of time, I even doubt the new SoB rhinos won't be just an upgrade sprue for them.

I think it would be okay if (And only if) it led to actually getting a more varied selection of vehicles

Of course, as long as it's tied to that overpriced chassis, it can't work, for exactly the same reason that the rhino chassis does work.
>>
>>66246029
>I think it would be okay if (And only if) it led to actually getting a more varied selection of vehicles
It will never be okay because space marines already have a huge selection of vehicles that already fill all possible niches, so any new primaris ones will do the same they've been doing and overlap like hell.

They do stuff like SC to push out old models cheaply before updating them.

I don't know what to think of the Astraeus. It's just so wierd and the fact that it's only primaris doesn't help.

>>
>>66245348
Do Chaos marines get touchy if you talk smack about their primarch?

>>66246194
Sure but there's literally no reason to update he rhino. It doesn't need more detail, it doesn't have any glaring scale problems as it's a vehicle, it's modular enough you can add whatever new weapons you want and, most of all, it's used in a fuck ton of kits you'd need to update too and those, again, don't need to be updated.

>>66246212
Maybe to work with the new marine scale. I mean you could say the exact same thing about primaris in rhinos.
>>
>>66246201
Not really. They need reculpts for their infantry kits, for more regiments and plastic kits for the resin ones but not really new units. Same with space marines, all these new primaris units don't really bring anything and the army didn't need them. It only makes the roster even more bloated.

That reminds me of what someone said about the poor rule writers having to internally balance the codex with 3 whole waves of new primaris models.

But then it makes you wonder why they can't balance csm who got mostly updates instead of many new units.
>>
>>66246236
Well, primaris are marines BUT BIGGER AND BETTER so repulsors are rhinos BUT BIGGER AND BETTER. Also, you cna't really have that many weapons if you make it a lot smaller.

>>66246202
Black Legion talk smack about their own primarch. Fulgrim abandoned his children for his own pursuits. Lorgar fucked off to do next to nothing all this time. Angron is more of a slave then he ever was. Typhius talks shit to Mortarians face and I’m not sure how death guard feel about him outside of the brotherhood nurgle teachs. Thousand Sons have mixed feeling about Magnus but I think it’s improvibg since he got over his 10,000 sulk.

>>66246257
>That reminds me of what someone said about the poor rule writers having to internally balance the codex with 3 whole waves of new primaris models.
It really must be a pretty shit situation when you are given a fuckload of new units that need rules for an army that already has tools tondo everything. Hell, that was the point of marines, jack of all trades, begginner army and all that. Primaris should have been their own thing, not marines.

>>
>>66246302
It's only been 4 minutes. Give it time.
>>
>>66246236
The vehicles need to be bigger than their normal marine equivalents, because primaris miniatures themselves are bigger. It would not make visual sense for larger infantry miniatures to be transported in the same sized vehicles. Primaris vehicles also pose more threat per-miniature, so they need to be harder to hide/cover on the tabletop to offset it.

>>66245496
He's okay. Against hordes he's straight up worse than an Eversor but if you give him Cegorach's Rose he does something like 7.5 average wounds per turn to a space marine captain, before using Blitz. And they returned his ability to charge over bubblewraps so he's a viable character assassin. On average he'll even do 4.5 wounds to girlyman on a Blitz charge.

With either weapon he kills an average of around 3 MEQs per fight phase.

A blitz move, advance, and charge is 12+5D6 inches of movement total so he has an insane (if unreliable) threat range.

Basically he's okay. Super cool mini though. I have him in a 1000pt detachment of clowns because it was the best way to fill it out, with 3x 5-player troupes, a troupe master, and a shadowseer in 3 transports.

That's literally what they already have. If they were going to be lazy they just wouldn't do anything.

I still doubt they'll ever update it. No one is gonna replace their existing tanks and they would also need to update all the other kits that use their chassis unless they make them compatible and then there would be even less point in updating it.
>That's literally what they already have. If they were going to be lazy they just wouldn't do anything.
I wouldn't be so sure. The basic SoB rhino is just a normal rhino, it's the special variants that have extra pieces. This may be just extra pieces to make a distinctive SoB basic rhino, like the deimos pattern upgrade kit.

Late to the party here, but "kind of". We could really use some light vehicles (eg, bringing the Tauros back, bringing Salamanders back with weapon options, having some kind of scout/medium Leman Russ, that sort of thing), and having some kind of barebones transport where all you're paying for is 12 capacity and a pintle mount would be nice (be nice if we could also get it open-topped). The current lineup feels a bit top-heavy, though I will agree that it's not something we truly *need*, not in the same way that, say, 'crons need better ranged AT options.

you put them in wagons. when the vehicle blows up your boys fall out and then charge to your objectives.

having over 120 wounds to go through is hell for most armies to deal with. and thats not even including vehicles and other shit on the table. Competitive ork lists takes 120 boys and a couple HQ's and then whatever the fuck else you want. Even after the Loota death star got nerfed, other ork lists without it are winning and placing in tournaments.

A lot of what they have is mid tier, but what makes Orks really good is their strats their buffs and just the never ending hordes of boyz like holy fuck you can fit so many boyz and grots in a list and just kill anyone
>>
>>66247097
Boys on foot do speed better, because all of the speed buffs you have available are additive, meaning they have a greater relative effect on something slow to begin with. E.g. Evil Sunz boys are the best at succeeding at the charge after being Da Jumped.

Meanwhile, there's no Codex entry for Warboss on Warbike, because GW hates you, so you have to fall back to the Index, where IIRC everything is pricier and sometimes shittier. Good luck with that.

Aye, but you're paying extra for weapon systems on both. Like I said, we don't have anything that is just a transport (ie. a Rhino rather than a Razorback).

>>66247117
Kind of? They're M8/9, which is a bit limp when it comes to scout-vehicle-movement. This has long been a bugbear of mine with the non-HS vehicles of the Guard, it's like the designers can consistently get close to a great design for a light/scout vehicle for Guard, but they can't actually hit the bullseye (Sentinels aren't quite fast enough, Hellhounds are more "assault" than "scout", Taurox/Taurox Prime you pay extra for transport you don't really need if you're looking for a scout vehicle, Tauros/Tauros Venator/Scout Salamander were good I still think the Salamander needs more weapon options but are OOP and unlikely to survive the next codex update).

a finer brush. that's all you really need for now. looks like its just a matter of painting within the details and making sure you aren't spilling over. Beyond that, you can experiment with using a glaze, or a second color to pair with the red to give the lenses a tad bit more detail. however, for the typical 3ft/tabletop quality, just making sure the paint isn't spilling over should be fine

Don’t water down your white paints, you need to use medium (pic related) to dilute it as water will make it dry extremely fast due to the additive used in the paint to make it white
Use thinned down layers 1:1 white to medium and do lots of coats. If you don’t let the coats completely dry before layering up the next one, your brush will tear the thin layer of paint and crate crumbing like you have on the pads
use gemstone paints under coated with stormhost silver on the eyes and lenses until you’re more confident painting transition gems

in that ship, not for very long. They are barely frigate sized in 40k values and their shields are complete dogshit. The only advantage they have is superior sensors.

Now if it was TNG era Enterprise, they would fare better, but in any kind of boarding actions after their shields went down they would be fucked beyond reasoning. In ship combat though they would fare well against cruisers, but would still be completely outclassed by battlecruisers and battleships in 40k.

Enterprise-E would potential be able to go up against a battlecruiser in 40k and probably come out the victor (mostly because of superior sensors and targeting, as well as the spinal lance).

You would need the Enterprise-F or a Tal-Shiar Scimitar in order to go up against a grand cruiser in 40k.

Picard was fairly pragmatic, he understood the cost of survival if it meant breaking the rules on occasion. Thats how he became the man he was. He saw what happened when he played it safe, and he was a fucking coward and a desk jockey.

The Prime Directive was a set of guidelines (not unlike the Codex Astartes). He was willing to break it on occasion if it meant the survival of humanity. He may not like the way the imperium operates, but he would certainly understand why it was the way it was and probably continue it with a few changes here and there.

He was not above trying to Genocide the Borg every chance he got.

Whats the point of macro canon broadsides? Seems like in the open area of space, it would be much easier to just mount mass banks of lances or torps rather than maneveour for shorter ranged broadsides. Just have the fleet focus fire and kill the enemy before they can get into macro canon range.

i'd assume that their robot legs have connections that can integrate with their fleshy parts, including what few muscles are left in their butt cheeks, which while using their robot parts, get a work out as well.

>why do chaos players bitch non stop
he isnt wrong that its a CP strategem instead of a warband trait.

>>66248171
probably to make sure it cant be used excessively.
GW has had to write errata's telling players that if they concede, they lost the match. And moving units of the table destroys the unit.

Legion=ignore cover
Warlord=auto pass moral 6” aura
Relic=2+ & recover one wound per turn.
>>
>>66248130
>1CP for a 6+++
You tell me.
>>
>>66248219
IW warlord trait gives the warlord a morale-ignoring aura. Great for cultist blobs. The IW relic gives you a 2+ save and heals one wound per turn, which makes a daemon prince even better.

Because they waited for a codex forever in 7th, and at the tail end got a good codex. Which was immediately outdated when 8th came out soon after.

Then they got a horrible codex. Which lasted a few good years. And now they get a new codex which is arguably worse than the original.

So if they wait for a 3rd codex... (Which will be never lets be honest) they will have to wait until 9th, which is supposedly never going to happen.
They're dead in the water with one of the worst codexes imaginable, that was sold full price and clearly rushed.

I mostly prefer the idea of them being well-meaning but still pretty racist against the idea of non-tau not getting the whole idea OF 'the greater good' so are a bit wary of them even if they're accepting, I dunno. I'd like a few more alien races to use and the Tau could help with that since you wouldn't need a full army set for them, you'd only need 4-5 units since they'd be an ADDITION to a tau army, not a whole other faction.
