>>66733135First for SoB faces are good
LORGARS A FAGGOT
>>66733111>digitsAlso, in the first Astartes there's a panel with text saying they are rebel leaders, so presumably chaos.Those shields really look tzeen-chan, yall niggas agree?
>>66733180Lorgar did nothing wrong
Blood Axes? Blood Axes!
>>66733179You, I like you.
>>66733135Just how many 3++s that fucker succeeded
>>66733239Not enough to still get krumped by a space marine with a combat knife.
Why GW hate Noise marines? They're not even in Kill Team.
>>66733135I say the best thing about these shorts is that the Astartes aren’t fighting incompetent enemies. Those enemies are hyper-competent if anything, and even get the better of the Astartes on a few moments, but the Astartes still prevail through weapons, tactics and all their augmented abilities.
>>66733192It might just be the artstyle, but it seemed more like they were using archeotech than psyker powers. Can't wait for part five so we can see what's in that vault.
>psyker scum getting stabbed in the faceRighteous.
>>66732908I thought that was his eyeball popped and blood stain
>>66733249They're a resin upgrade pack unit when GW wants to end resin production.Not sure how they're going to handle the eldar line as a whole since 50% of it is resin.
>>66733226>>66733258>>66733233However, the models are shit.
>>66733280Non wraith eldar are getting squatted
>>66733259yeah, the guardsmen are really oddly outfitted but not beyond the real of possibility and are fairly well trained and armed. But they are still just regular humans against superhumans. The biggest threat to the marines (and has been the case in multiple instances) are psykers. Which we see them just turning marines into paste.
>>66733135what happened to the 1st marine's eye at 42:60?cybernetics?
>>66733135Was anyone else hoping for the rebels to win?
Is it okay to model a unit with a pistol even if he doesn't have one crunchwise? I don't have any pointing fingers left and can't attach his left arm to the gun.
All I wanted was the truth
What's the best way to equip tac sargents?Combi weapon or stormbolter?
>>66733284Literally in OP.>>66733302Yeah
>>66733135Backstory for my main characters for my Voodoo Chaos Warband:>Houngan Malimak (Sorcerer Lord): Undivided, but makes equal use of aligned Daemons and powers when applicable. Prefers to fight from the middle ranks, away from the worst of the battle but close enough to feed on the souls of the dying and to lend support and summon daemons when needed. Wears the armor of a Sehkmet Terminator he killed as a mark of status and pride, and he bound the shell of the soul that once inhabited it to the armors Machine Spirit. Is secretly terrified because he cannot take the armor off anymore, and he's had to physically cut off the helmet on more than one occasion. >Baron Chaucer (Chaos Lord): Lord of the entire warband. Has warp-bound oaths from all of his Champions for their allegiance, and commands the respect of an entire chapter. Worships all gods equally (including the Emperor!), and views each god as a route to his own ascension into godhood. Wields two Power Mauls in combat to deadly effect, and has an almost sexual addiction to fire of any kind. Craves Ascension, but given his views on the Emperor the Chaos Gods are unlikely to ever grant him that.Still working out the details on the rest, and I'll post them later.
>>66733302His eye popped, the visor's full of blood.
>>66733324Combis are never good.
>>66733316Yes. Proxy the pistol as an empty space.
>>66733324Combi weapon if you have a special, nothing if you just have a heavy weapon, a storm bolter is good if you just have a heavy bolter or just bolters. Basically something to synergize with the squad.
>>66733341The lens broke, its a camera
>>66733324combi-plasma for general use, storm bolter if you plan on taking advantage of beta bolters and you are a fister.
>>66733302Marine helmets have various cameras and sensors in the eyes, rather than just being a clear visor.
>>66733300>mfw duplicate fileSomething tells me I ought to have cropped the video or edited that webm better. I can’t get over that black screen at the start.
>>66733302Helmet eyes are actually cameras.
>>66733310No, the marines are just doing clean up duty as the rebellion was already crushed as per the first video.
>>66733373So what's in the big ole 02 Bubble Vault? The Astropath?
>>66733302>>66733329Don't think so.There are 2 schools as to what is behind the eye lense of a Space Marine, depending on the sources.Either the actual eye of the SM or a camera, and the SM is simply looking at a display in his own helmet.It appears the artist represented the latter, which, in my opinion makes sense. So many times we hear about Astartes removing their helmet because of a hit on the eye. But if the lense was fucked and there was no camera, they would simply look through the hole, albeit without eye protection. Instead, if it is a camera, it makes sense to remove the helmet if you can't see shit because the display is fucked.To me it is a camera.

>>66733341it makes the sound of camera lenses moving and looks like camera lenses, how much astigmatism do you have
>>66733391>Regimental Doctrine: Regiment: Cadian>9 Sentinelsyou fucked up
>>66733341>His eye popped, the visor's full of blood.its mechanical, you can see it moving around and light escapes the broken lens and continues to emit red light after he kills the psyker.
>>66733368Not that guy but what does this mean for the space marines who dash into battle without helmets?
>>66733269Its probably both. The FFG RPGs had archeotech that can grant psychic abilities, called Psyberware.
>>66733420they trust their superhuman senses over the mechanical assistance. That's part of why space wovles are the most prone to helmetless shit.
>>66733391I would add the Vigilus Artillery detachment bonus to your brigade. Allowing your Basilisk to shoot twice if need be is never a bad idea.
>>66733275nah he's right. There is even a whirr when the optics move
>>66733416Maybe the lenses have smaller lenses inside, they can enhance images so my guess is that the lens has some sort of sandwich structure with optical equipment in between two panes of glass
>>66733404>9 plasma cannons that reroll 1s to hitHow did I fuck up
>>66733324Intercessors instead of Tacs
>>66733420Its fluffed as the marines senses heightening even more over time, meaning that eventually they are only losing a slight increase in protection and visual aid in return for being able to use their acid spit and their bone crushing teeth.
>>66733391Honestly, Tallarn would probably be better suited for a sentinel heavy army, that way you can take full advantage of their mobility I’d consider splitting the brigade into two battalions, allocating some of the tank commanders to each and setting up a Tallarn outrider detachment for all the sentinels if you want to keep the Cadians
put together a 2k points list, warp talons are a place holder until I can get more bikers which will then be Plasx2 C.Plasx1I also have a defiler and a predator on my shelf
>>66733458fellate a shotgun, primaris shitter
>>66733425>PsyberwareI really hope the person who wrote that wasn't being serious.
>>66733404>>66733476He's gunlining the sentinels guysJust look at this list. He's probably skipping every movement phase.This is static gunline gaming.
>>66733482A defiler will serve you better then double mauler or crawler.I'd try and get the deffie in there
>>66733515He's a tau player who migrated to IG after foreseeing the nerf.
>>66733391>some form of guard in 5 languages>imperial army in germanWhat did they mean by this?
>>66733302watch in 1080p on YouTube theres a pair of cameras back there looking around
>>66733476If I don't move my sentinels wouldn't cadians be hands down superior? Not only that but allowing every heavy weapons team that doesn't move rerolls 1s as well, if ordered to Take Aim (multiple squads getting orders due to trait and relic) the squad rerolls all to hit rolls.I may drop the third basilisk to take a lascannon in every squad.

Last two scions built for now. Just gotta clean em, paint em, base things, touch up everything else, then... wait, I guess. I could build one of the DPs I had sitting around forever.
If not Chaos, which faction would you prefer as a big, all-encompassing threat?Or do you even want there to be one

>>66733640Necrons, like the were in 3rd and 4th edition.
>>66733640All-encompassing threats in 40k ultimately make the universe feel smaller, so it's better not to have them. Tyranids and chaos are big deals but should never be the whole show.

Your army is boring, waac, and unless this is what your local is like, nobody is going to wanna play you after they've seen it once or twice. Probably yourself too after you realize how you play that army, unless you're an old Tau player. There are other more interesting (and still viable) ways to play Guard, they have a solid Codex
>>66733707Hide Battlescribe threadsIgnore Battlescribe postsDo not reply to Battlescribe posters
>>66733742>how the fuck did the thousand sons lose at prospero.Outnumbered and attacked by bald bitches immune to psyker bullshit, also some were mutating on the spot plus the whole thing with Magnus not fighting until the Russ attacked him and Russ just wiping the floor with everyone that tried to stop him from reaching Magnus.
>>66733730I just add more shoulder pads and iron gobs.
>>66733742Magnus didn't want to fight. Also these guys seem hyper advanced.
>>66733742>how the fuck did the thousand sons lose at prospero.Magnus wanted to lose, but he didnt want to get wiped out so he at least put up a fight. now imagine an entire chapter where nearly every single marine was like those psykers in the video. This is what player grey knights should be like, but its not.
>>6673351040k is a joke setting, and that's a great thing anon

>>66733742>how the fuck did the thousand sons lose at prospero.K E I K A K U
>>66733331I like it anon. The sorcerer being secretly scared shitless because he fucked up is particularly delightful
What if I told you it's possible to run eight Mawlocs in a 1000 point Tyranid army? Would you do it?I would.
So did those psykers in astartes kill all the other marines or just blast them out of the way? What made those two cqc marines special and able to not get fucked up in less than a second?
>>66733751There's cadian gunline and catachan ogryn deathstar with yarrick and priests anything else gets blown out by anything competitive. Temp scions are niche
>>66733776Feels kinda naked honestly, with all their depictions. But hey, got any pictures?
>>66733785>This is what player grey knights should be like, but its not.what are you talking about, grey knights lose to tactical marines just fine
>>66733831Definitely. Tremors is a great movie.
>buy something off ebay>ebay charges me for shipping>seller messages me shortly after saying "yeah I still have to calculate shipping for you..."THEN WHAT DID I JUST PAY FOR?Fuck shipping to canada is retarded.
>>66733831Single unit armies will typically be gimmicky and lose their appeal quickly. Buying, converting (because FUCK identical poses), and painting eight mawlocs is a lot of effort for a meme army.
>>66733742Russ kind of has a reputation of having very strong psychic defenses. Also his actual fighting skill is way above Magnus. He brought the right tools for the job.
>>66733270Such a great image. Makes me want to collect Templars again. Anyone tried the new Black Templar Black contrast paint on power armour?
>>66733785Eeeeh not necessarily. GK are all at least psykers. But there's nothing saying they're all über strong in that domain. Chances are it's rather the opposite. Our of a whole squad you get maybe one that is a proper battle psyker, the rest will be at the "I can speak with my mind and potentially throw a fireball when concentrating and pooling my strength with the others" level.The GK aren't demon slayers because of psyker powers, but rather because of NONE PURER. Hell Crowe is a bit of a meh psyker. Very good novel though.
>>66733834did you not watch to the end? theres a bunch of them
>>66733869I've seen a couple of them, it looks really good but needs two coats to cover fully though I dont hate the single coat look since it adds a bit more value to the black and you can give it more coverage by weathering the armor a bit with grey or silver .
>>66733850>buy something off ebay>recieve something off ebay>get email from ebay telling me to finish purchasing the thing I ordered, paid for and received.what
>>66733742>how the fuck did the thousand sons lose at prospero.Literally Magnus' fault. Prospero was probably the most well defended Imperial world next to Terra itself (And later, Cadia), with advanced warning systems as well as psychic prescience. Any fleet trying to invade Prospero would be caught and destroyed by the defense fleet as soon as it left the warp.Prospero had incredible orbital defenses and more. Its cities were paradise-fortresses backed up by millions of imperial guard and probably the one-for-one strongest Space Marine LEGION.And what did Magnus do? He literally shut it all down. Shut down all communications. Shut down all advanced warning systems. Ensured that no one was manning their posts when the Imperial fleet came. Prospero was left utterly defenseless. They could have slaughtered the entire censure fleet in orbit, decimated the survivors, even the fucking Custodes on the ground. But instead they were slaughtered wholesale and Prospero was burned to a crisp. And it was all Magnus' fault.
>>66733834I'm pretty sure those other marines are dead. The first cqc one charged one who was busy defending himself from first bolters, and then his plasma pistol. The second one got close because both of them had to focus on the first marine, as one had been injured slightly by the bolt pistol. The way the stuff that came out of their heads worked, I think they were twins, and when the first one was killed, it severely weakened the power of the other psyker.
>>66733834>What made those two cqc marines special and able to not get fucked up in less than a second?Nothing, it was squad tactics. Part of the squads fires to pin them down, the other two run forward to take them on, they werent special just filling a role. Also we dont know if the two on the second floor exploded or were just pushed aside so they probably survived.
>>66733893Just saw this, thanks anonAnyone got a dead marine count, I'm pretty sure a couple went down in the third part
>>66733459Has there ever been a tabletop application of their acid spit?
>>66733869It's pretty bad in this video: https://youtu.be/Py3slye6FZMIf you want stuff like the art, look up poc related on Instagram, he did the Tale of 4 Warlords and gave the recipes in WD.
Whats a good army for Spetsnaz Ork shenanigans?
>>66733834They seem to only be able to use telekinesis with the spine thing powering their shields. I'd say it's power-control balance thing, where the psykers couldn't blast away the CQC marines with the same force without risking injuring themselves or overloading their shields with the blast. So they had to sacrifice power for more precise control.
>looking up tutorials on how to do snow bases>a lot are just pva + baking soda + white paint or perhaps some gloss>a few are using some of their own special texture paint stuff>look okay, some look honestly real great as melty snow or slushy snow, but most aren't quite the effect I'm looking for>but GW's Valhallan Blizzard looks gorgeous and pretty much exactly what I want and also looks easy as fuck to use, as long as I can find an equivalent to their spatula tool thingWhat should I do? Should I try some of the home-made snow, or bend knee to GW?
>>66733958Blood Axes and Kommando spam backed up by very heavy fire support
>>66733942None died in the 3rd part.There's one that tanks a couple of autocanons shells by slightly swaying to the side before the gunners are, well, gunned down. And the sergeant takes a fair few shots of multilaser before blowing it the fuck out with a well placed plasma pistol shot. But no death.
>>66733946Only in the Dark Heresy RPG I think....
>>66733917And people say that retard did nothing wrong.magnus did EVERYTHING WRONG.just so he would have fuel for his persecution complex, primarchs were a mistake.
>>66733873GK are powerful because they are trained to channel their powers together as a squad. Not because every GK is individually a powerful psyker. Most other psykers (rarely if ever) channel their powers together to cast powers.
>>66733958Fluff-wise Blood Axes as one anon said, otherwise Goffs and Evil Sunz should work well too.
>>66733983if you want all-snow bases do the Woodland scenics snow+pva+water mix, if you want partial snow like that thumbnail do GW's stuff
>>66734023Yes, that's what I said. Or at least tried to.
>>66733983A bottle of GW technical is only like what, six bucks?I'm so frugal I haven't eaten lunch in four years and even I think you're cheap.
>>66733983You should use all tools available, not limiting yourself to one of them.
>>66733873The thing about the grey knights is that they're all exactly psyker enough to use force weapons which obliterate daemons, their skill outside of that is limited.unless you're a paladin, the paladins all fight like the psykers in astartes, except in terminator armour and with force weapons and storm bolters.
>>66734039How the hell have you gone four years without eating lunch?
>>66734023Astropaths are the most common psykers and they explicitly work in astropathic choirs. Marine Librarians also have a stratagem representing them working in groups.
Are psykers as big of a factor as wizards are in warhammer fantasy or age of sigmar?
>>66734054Eat breakfast and dinner?
>>66734054I eat breakfast, then I eat dinner at the end of the day. Lunch is for fat people.
>>66733828>>66733331I also like the idea of Chaucer clutching all kinds of iconography, amulets, symbols, etc in his hands, chanting rapidly to all and any who would hear his prayer.
>>66734069Psykers can be incredible army boosters.
Wow GW should hire this guy and not these other faggots which will produce their shitty webseries.
>>66734069Not on all armies, Chaos Marines in general have a lot of power behind their psykers, Orks, Eldar and GSC/Tyranids as well. IG and Loyalist marines on the other hand arent too reliant on them but can be useful in certain situations.
>>66734090Like the guy from the Brendan Frasier Mummy movie?
>>66734061>Astropaths are the most common psykers and they explicitly work in astropathic choirs.yeah, in safe places, not in warzones. They are specifically communicating and transmitting messages, not casting lightning bolts at daemon princes while chaos marines are trying to kill you. > Marine Librarians also have a stratagem representing them working in groups.In lore, they occasionally work together, but I was more speaking along the lines of how Grey Knights fight, as a squad of psykers casting powers and protecting each other. There are many times in lore where librarians are way from the battlefield and working together to communicate or navigate ships, but rarely do they work in tandem on the battlefield outside of a few instances.
I can use cadians as other regiments, right? Fluff-wise /my guys/ are a strike force commonly tasked to put down planetary rebellions (when PDF can't or are part of the rebellion) in a sector that is beginning to be encroached upon by ++REDACTED++.They're heavy on veterans, chimeras, and tactical outmaneuvering and light on blobs, heavy armor, and long-range artillery. I was thinking of using Tallarn.As an aside, what's the status of using Leman Russ Annihilators?
>>66734132Use whatever regiment you want for /yourdudes/. Use multiple even, like Tallarn transports and Armageddon infantry.Leman Russ Annihilators are better than Vanquishers but still not your best AT option.
>>66733921you'd have a point if they were regular humans, but astartes are made for war, born and bred for it.the only time an astartes stops fighting is when they're dead,and even thats not always the case. Any kind of telekinetic impact sufficient to leave those marines out of the fight for as long as they were is enough force to at minimum mission kill them otherwise they'd have showed back up to support their sergeant. immediately. Being knocked over wouldn't stop them for long and since they didn't show up again during the approach of the vault the prognosis is grim.that said the one on the ground floor may have survived as he was much further away from the psykers so him not responding is more understandable.at least 2 dead marines, possibly 3, not a great showing but its not unexpected against psykers, they're consistently the most dangerous thing a marine can face across most media because even posthuman physiology can't protect from someone smashing reality over his knee and throwing the pieces at you.
>>66734132Lots of regiments use Cadian-inspired gear and their own tactics/doctrine, which would be represented by using cadian models and whatever rules fit.
>>66734132Look at Anvil Industry for 3rd party if you're not playing in a GW.
>>66734132>>66734215Even at GW small shit like different heads or bases can be ok if the manager is not a sperg.
anyone remember the ultramarines movie?
>>66734261https://youtu.be/oe-kGakx3CQOf course I do.
Just finished my converted scions, really stoked how they turned out. What conversions do you have in your army, /40kg/?
>>66734261I have the ultramarine movie collectors edition. I also remember Damnatus, the cursed movie.
>>66734287I want a model of this guy.
>>66734312Platoon #907 "Thicc boys"
>>66734177They had one Marine vs two of them FOCUSING on him and all they could do what crack a lens and maybe break a camera or two inside.The other Marines are fine and in the last shot you can see them joining back up.So far there has been insignificant resistance for the Marines in these videos and is looking more and more like BL bolter porn.
>>66734342Two thicc coATs to mAke DunCAn proUd.
>>66734356I agree. This guy doesn't know shit about 40k and GW should cease and desist him.
>>66734356>"BL bolter porn"Or an accurate representation of SM, who are meant to do just that.But one could argue the two baddies could have been very dangerous, you see one easily cleaving a bolt pistol in two with his staff thing. Had they not been attacked on all sides right before, they could have maybe killed the sergeant.A very good scene.
>>66733808These are germinae (2015).Original (1996/2003) sob or the new (2019/2020) are full MAAM mode.
>>66734261God, I regret that I do. That was the movie I decided to try and watch with my family to show why I thought 40k was cool. Bad choice.
>>66734384>This guy doesn't know shit about 40k and GW should cease and desisNo he is depicting them like they to in the novels.>unkillable living tanks that can take a whole planet This is the best thing media wise to come out for 40k they really should fully endorse it.
>>66734384Come on man, try harder.
hey frensnew Deathwatch player here.is the Start Collecting! worth it?Is Artemis any good? He seems eh.Also, are deathwatch shotguns decent?
>>66734342Is the paint really that thick :(
>>66734418>implying shitposters didn't call the gemini trannies too
>>66734444YesNoNoBuild the 10 man squad as stormbolters (edit and glue two bolters together, if you do a good job they look fantastic) and storm shields with maybe some fragcannons?
>>66734093>>66734106But there arent any big bursty spells that can change the tide of the game are there?
>>66734457Not him, but yes. Previous shot didn't seem this bad.I am sure it's fine irl though, camera can pick up paint grain that eye will not.
>>66734468i am making half of my squads as stormbolter and chainsword, and one other squad is stalker bolt rifles and the last squad is my "fun" squad with power weapons, plasmas and flamers.it's casual, but i could always change the list.
>>66734457It's not the worst but it's not the best either. It's very visible on the highlights and the now obscured details like the chest eagles. The fact that they're now an unidentifiable blob is pretty revealing of the chunky chunky paint.Also, no need to be that close to your models. Better to be about 15-30 centimeters away.
>>66734356>BL bolter porn>WAHHHHHHH y didn't the marines just die to the slug throwers why did duh full auto rocket launchers kill all those normal humans so fast dey shud have saved at lest one of those shots an kill duh marines
First for orks!
>>66733873>But there's nothing saying they're all über strong in that domain.god I fucking hate you so much
>>66734356only one was focusing, the other had very recently come down with a dire case of bolter to the shoulder and likely couldn't focus on much more than maintaining his shield.besides as another anon said >>66733974 they may not have been able to do the standard telekinetic shunt attack without endangering each other, psychic powers really aren't known for being easy to control at the best of times, if he tried to project a wall of force against the sergeant he probably would have flattened his partner in the crossfire.or it could have just been psyker sadism, godlike mind bullet power comes with a tendency to overestimate their own abilities, maybe they wanted the marine to suffer.who really knows, whats obvious though is that people only show up to approach the vault from the bottom floor, no one comes down from the top.and not everyone returns.We won't know until the next one actually comes out but I think the marines up top are dead, the way the scene was shot if he wanted to show them survive the impact he could have.although I suppose by the same token he could have made their deaths clear so we'll have to see in a year when part 4 is released.
>>66734132unconverted cadians with other regiment's rules are gay
>>66734561Uh fair enough. Novels rarely reflect that though, which seems fair to me, it avoids going into Mary Sue territory. To each their own I suppose.
>>66734476Death hex can cancel an opponent's invulnerable save.That can be pretty devastating. And the mind controlling skills (tzeentch, GSCs, I think I'm forgetting another faction) can be pretty wild if you control something xxxtra shooty.
I wonder what the final baddie will be that'll inevitably slaughter the SMs
>>66734586>I think I'm forgetting another factioninquisition
>>66734573yess you are the big g*y for not buying 4 different IG armies if you want to try out their other rules Give FW and GW more of your money
>>66734619I said 'faction' anon
>>66734476Chaos sorcerers can really fuck things up indirectly
>>66734592Would be cool if there was a chaos spawn or something of that nature in the vault. It would be great if this build up of near "invincible" marine is cast asunder and they take heavy causalities but eventually take the beast down. Or they could show off even more prowess and get crippled, but never lose a marine. Or maybe one dies and then have a scene of an apothecary coming to reclaim the geneseed.
>>66734592Some daemon that got summoned?
>>66734545eh, in most showings were astartes have to fight psykers its shown to be a bad matchup for the astartes, this is the whole reason why the null maidens exist.the emperor made the SoS and the Custodes as a matched pair to fight together because he didn't believe the custodes could fight against paranormal threats like psykers and daemons without a null field to protect them from the physics rape, if the emperor didn't think the custodes should fight psykers solo and specifically sent a massive detachment to help leman bring magnus to justice then I reckon a psyker is the most dangerous thing a marine can fight.this is reflected both on the tabletop and in the RPG's.that being said though a marine dying to basic fodder is the kind of thing you only do to show the hubris of the dead marine in question, it reminds me of the scene from helsreach where the hotblooded new marine separates himself from the rest of his squad and gets himself killed by a shoota boy because he had no one to cover him.
>>66734629Inquisition is the only other discipline with mind control
Too thick of a coat. How not to do contrast.
>>66734592Prolly a daemon. It has to be something more dangerous than a pair of combat psyker and stand at the command of a rebellion. Our Retributor bois are going to get wiped out with the last one detonating the ship's warp drive to drag the daemon back into the immaterium.
>>66734644After a sorcerer gets out of a transport?
>>66734647I thought for sure eldar had one but I must be mistaken.
>>66734592I want to see marines fight eachother, that would be cool as shit.turns out the operation was an alpha legion psyop and a squad of CSM ambush the marines from the other side of the vault.
>>66734643yeah, reversing the seeming invincibility of the SMs seem really likely >>66734665of course, the Daemon is promptly DQed
>>66734592Considering they've been building up Chaos...wouldn't it be kind of stupid to have them kill off manlets, if the Primaris were brought out of storage to fight in a huge crusade against Chaos?That'd be like if the Grey Knights were nowhere to be seen if the Sisters get killed off by daemons.
>>66734609it's easier to read faggot
>>66734510Wait there are 15 marines in there? In that case go stormbolter/stormshield instead of chainsword, a 5 man set of stalker bolters is cool, and set the last 5 as either fragcannons or then various cool characters or sergeants, like a chaplain/librarian/captain. (Cape for captain, grey knight rear torso for librarian and revier helmet and edited mace for chaplains) go nuts, deathwatch is literally the most fun you can have making models

>>66734672>>66734476eldar have mind war and mirror of minds, they combined with the genestealer cult psychic bomb attack are the most dangerous psykers purely on the level of direct damage because both armies have psychic powers that do damage based on leadership tests and both have a million and one ways to lower their enemies leadership, although in the case of the eldar at least it requires a shit load of settup to pull off a proper bomb.the eldar also have executioner which is a better smite so if a farseer wants to they can really do a lot of damage, really though the eldars niche is that they're the most consistent psykers.the only other big gamewinning spell I can think off is a weirdboy using da jump to drop 40 boys directly in front of you then getting stuck in with 'ere we go.mostly psychic powers are for support and indirect damage, as well as elite sniping.

>>66734806The thing I hate most about smite was that they made a basic spell with a minimum threshold for use that was low but with an empowered effect that was much more difficult to pull off.then they gave us a billion different psychic phase dice modifiers across all armies and proceeded to make smite one of three powers in the entire fucking game with an empowered effect.thats just horribly wasted potential, I'd have liked it if other spells had overcharge effects to separate powerful psykers from weaker ones without having to change their character sheet.
>>66733640I'm a pansy faggot, so I wish every faction, Chaos, Orks, and Tyranids included, had an unambigiously good subfaction. Chaos could finally start representing the positive emotions they always bang on about, Orks could figure out they get plenty of fightan' from serving as a border guard to the wimpy races, and Tyranids could have a hivemind that consumes the most dominate predators in an ecosystem and moves on, gathering its strength to take back its own galaxy while simultaenously wiping out the biggest threats in this one.

A good portion of this thread is, frankly, embarrassing marinewank
So ep 4 of Astartes shows bolters being able to fire in fully-automatic. Fine. Good, even. But, they show numerous times that they can expend an entire 30 round magazine within a second. Is this true/referenced anywhere? The kick-back of just one bolter shot is massive, let alone 30 in a second. I understand they're spess muhreens and all that. At least the first marine they shown had a very good position for such, having the non-firing hand resting on top of the bolter, forcing it down against the railing, while driving their body forward. But then you see others firing all 30 in a second while standing and not braced, like it's a fuckin' weak sub machinegun.Absolutely godly episode though.>>66733259Except the dipshit in ep 3 firing the multi-laser. Fucking WHOOPS.

>>66735829>But, they show numerous times that they can expend an entire 30 round magazine within a second. Is this true/referenced anywhere? yes, quite often actually. >The kick-back of just one bolter shot is massive, let alone 30 in a second.If you pay attention to the video, right when the marines start shooting at the psykers, they are holding their bolters against the railing by pushing down on them to prevent as much kickback as they can. The marines are also super human and have better control over their rifle's kickback, but there is still kickback. Watch some videos on youtube with rifles getting fired full auto and see that most shooters are still able to keep their rifle in position.
>>66735889And? A canon source shows that a bolter takes several seconds to use up a mag.
>>66735901You can have the pariahs, I'll go to the other side of the aisle
>>66735829>Is this true/referenced anywhere? Yes.>The kick-back of just one bolter shot is massiveYou do realize that this is a super human wearing a tank, right? You think that armor can't compensate? It does btw
>>66735901Iirc they were so close near the end & she thought she was so done for that she completed the banana's sentence when they were staging a last stand
>>66735920Yes, as I said, the one marine against the railing is doing all they can to handle the kickback, but still as you see them begin firing, they get pushed still. Then soon after you see other marines firing all 30 non-stop and not an issue. Maybe somehow these marines are far better at recoil management than mr.railing.>>66735946Someone else who didn't read post and/or watch video properly. One marine gets pushed around while compensating for kickback, while another doesn't compensate and fires it no problem. This isn't even a finer detail of the video, either.
>>66735873>>66735825Its a damn good animation you dispassionate philistine Also, the guardsmen and psykers are displayed as awesome as well
>>66735959>One marine gets pushed around while compensating for kickback, while another doesn't compensate and fires it no problemWhere? Only part I can think of is firing the bolt pistol, in which case the armor is fighting the shield, the psyker, and the recoil.
So who are those two psyker guys in ep3 and 4? "only" psykers? They're massive compared to the other IG guys, as if they're 8ft+.
>>66735960The psykers, who are supposed to be the paper to a marine's rock, sucked ass
>>66735985>wiped out at least 2 marines each>"sucked ass"Anon...
>>66735985They were rather organized an in-synch even as they took projectiles from multiple directions. It was clear they can overpower the space marines, just the space marines have better tactics.
>>66736002>wiped outThey pushed them back. Yes, with great force, but at the end you see the marines come back walking just fine. You niggers are blind in these animations or what
>>66736002They were all fine though, nonny
>>667359790:34 you see two (one clearly) do this. Bolters being able to fire all 30 rounds in less than a second, while looks/sounds cool, is pretty retarded.
>>66735985>The psykers, who are supposed to be the paper to a marine's rock, sucked assPsykers regularly kill marines, even Eldar psykershttps://youtu.be/OTjyO_FncE4Its just that the marines had better tactics and usually durable enough to survive psyker attacks that would kill a regular human.
>>66736034Different bolter patterns may have different rates of fire. Pretty sure bolters aren't supposed to have ammo displays either.
>>66736002They didn't kill the marines, but they did have them dead to rights. If the SMs didn't outnumber them they would be fucked. Also those were mid to low level psykers. >>66736021>>66736022Yeah, low level psykers. Epsilon at most. A delta level psyker can incinerate a city.
>>66736021>at the end you see the marines come back walking just fineWhat is your basis for claiming those were the same marines who got blasted away?
>>66735985>the paper to the marine's rockFor god's sake, you don't say that tanks are the scissors to the pysker's paper, do you? Shit isn't that simple. Some pyskers are extremely powerful, some aren't, some are powerful but not in a combat sense and will fold quick without support. And that's not even taking account how dangerous being a pysker is.

>>66736034That's not what I was talking about, my dude. Anyways, Bolters fire as fast as regular automatic weapons do irl. >is pretty retardedWelcome to 40k?
>>66736166That was what you were talking about. Read the comment chain correctly. Either you've a lapse in memory, or you wrote something you didn't mean.
>>66736079Whole thing's just been following one squad of five dudes. You'll see the same battle damage/bloodstains from the past episodes in later ones.the sergeant with the multilaster blasts is the most distinct, but most of them have a few scuffs already. For example you can tell which guy in the squad blasted the autocannon team, because his breastplate has a faint amount of blood on it.
>>66736105Pulling bold claims out of your ass then?
>>66736163they do, they just dont use humie or grot teef as currency. They might use space marine teeth, but usually ork teeth are the preferred currency.
>>66736177>One marine gets pushed around while compensating for kickback, while another doesn't compensate and fires it no problemI directly fucking quoted the part about recoil.
Does anyone else find it a bit stupid that invulns are completely and utterly unassailable except for MWs? A storm shield (never mind a dodge-fluffed ability) stopping everything from volcano cannons to flamers to mortar fire is not only unfluffy, it also results in some balance issues where invulns are the be-all-end-all and anything bigger than chaff lacking them is trash. AP-5 and up could stand to reduce invulns a bit.
>>66736163I can't name all of these memes and I've been here all summer.
>>66736196>Does anyone else find it a bit stupid that invulns are completely and utterly unassailable No? That's the point of the invuln. It's supposed to represent some super crazy tech or magic shit.
>>66736196>unfluffyIt's a fucking forcefield.
>>66736105>Epsilon aren't low level. They are bog "standard" mid tier psykers. Just dangerous enough to be useful or a concern for the Imperium>Also, why the fuck are they so tall?Warp mutations son
>>66736247This image has never worked because of the thumbnail artifacting
>>66733135I think we're all forgetting something very importantThe one Astartes was desperate enough to fire a plasma pistol twice in under a minute. Thats basically asking to get your hand blown off
>>66736261A plasma pistol won't get hot after two shots.
>>66736261It was an extremely logical choice. Plasma Pistols excel at taking down shields.
>>66736254or if you use any of the other color styles
>>66736261>The one Astartes was desperate enough to fire a plasma pistol twice in under a minute.>Thats basically asking to get your hand blown offYep, he was risking it blowing up to damage/break the psyker shields. Space Marine and even Eternal Crusade enforce the need for you to vent your plasma weapons.
>>66736227>get shot with a weapon that destroys titans and baneblades>shrug it off with your man-portable forcefield or dodge it
>>66736227>>66736222Right, but handheld forcefields stopping ICBMs and bunker-busting missiles and volcano lances? As it is, you could toss a random marine with a storm shield into a sun and he'd waltz out unharmed.
>>66736276Pistol and plasma pistol best combo
>>66736301IT'S A FUCKING FORCE FIELD YOU MOUTHBREATHER
>>66733135>Big stompy Space Marines>moving and operating like proper space marines>weapon magazines fire in something more closely resembling an accurate length of sustained fire than most real films about real soldiersSeriously, this is everything I like about 40k, with a hefty spoonful of personal vision. Those psychers don't look much like something out of 40k in anything but stature, but I love their design nonetheless.
>>66736319so fucking what? what in the definition of force field means completely and utterly invincible to any and all forms of attack, kinetic or otherwise? except for psychic powers and biovore spores and vehicle explosions and sniper rifles and all that shit
Lads which is the real cover? Right is the one on Black Library but left is what all retailers seem to have online. Wanted to give it a go with a physical because the BL cover looks cool but don't know if that's what I'm going to get. Don't have a brick and mortar shop nearby that actually stocks them to have a look either.
>>66736338>what in the definition of force field means completely and utterly invincible to any and all forms of attack, kinetic or otherwiseBECAUSE THE LORE AND GAMEPLAY SAYS SO YOU DENSE PIECE OF SHIT
>>66736319>your plasma can't penetrate my force field>can too>nu uh
Anyone got examples of contrast paints over colours that aren't black/white/metallic?
>>66736326Actually they look a little rogue-traderish with some harlequins vibe. As you recall Rogue traders always surround themselves with flamboyant and unusual stuff
>>66736195Yes, and said "Where?" then the reply time-linked where, then from there you seemingly lost your shit and got confused.
>>66736351Sorry chaps I suck cocks, left says cover not final. Fuck my terrible vision.
>>66736315Most of those things would cause mortal woundsThe flaw in your logic is right in your first post. “Isn’t it stupid how invulnerable saves stop everything except for mortal wounds”So they don’t stop everythingGo fuck yourself
>>66736416I feel you, I'm just saying that those two are big badasses 40k and both of them with nary a skull on their persons. I like it, I've always thought Space Marines and 40k in general are at their best when the armor detail isn't overly embellished, and here's my vindication. This is series has instantly become my favorite piece of 40k media, although I'm only an orbiting fan of fiction in general, not really a 40k general denizen.
>>66736369which is the fucking point of the discussion you retard, it's stupid
>>66736469The only thing that causes MWs from that list is deathstrike missiles.
>>66736369THAT'S THE POINT, YOU FUCKING MORON, IT'S STUPID AND MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE
>>66736552And deathstrikes are total ass this edition.
>>66736552Not to mention the fact that you’re acting like the forcefields work 100% of the time. Everything about your argument is poorly though out and childishJust because you don’t like it doesn’t mean it makes no sense
>>66736375It came closer than the bolter rounds. I think it's fairly clear these two were heavy hitters to hold that team as long as they did, and let's all take a moment to remember that 40k lore is stupid, and taking it as gospel is how you end up in the Guard.
>>66736319It still makes no fucking sense how a cannon that explodes titans and baneblades can be blocked 2/3 times by some fuck with a storm shield.
>>66736585how does a storm shield stop a conflagration cannon
>>66736553>It's stupidSays the retard
>>66736664It goes between you and the cannon, providing protection because whatever is coming at you hits it instead
>>66736694it's a gigantic flamethrower that can melt tanks easily
>>66736713Those tanks aren't made out of storm shields though
>>66736728Fair point. I concede.
>>66736728>Those tanks aren't made out of storm shields thoughNot yet they aren't.
>>66736317I was always a fan of smg/plasma pistol. I had shite for aim, and most of the time engagements were in super cramped areas, so I just held down the trigger and thought happy thoughts
>>66736369force fields can only tank so much damage before failing. A titan's Voidshield can tank more than say a shield the size of a wallet integrated into a guard commander's breast plate. if we were going off of fluff, it should be impossible for a space marine's storm shield to tank something used to kill titans
>>66734945whats this about custodes?
