Riddle me this humans!Are there more Reaver Titans in play than actually exist in the 41st millennium! !
They will return even stronger than ever before & the meltdown here will be glorious.
>>76074737>Awfully unoptimizedEven if each individual were good in isolation, the whole cannot mechanically be good under current 9e rules.
Post WIPs. Here is pre highlighting and shading.
So last thread I was told my Elysians looked shit, could anyone elaborate? Any adjustments would be easier to make before the whole army is done and painted.
>>76074726If counting titanicus, I'd say definitely. But just mainline 40k, I find it unlikely
>>76074764They were literally put together that way by Duncan for aesthetic reasons, the fluff came later
>>76074726doubtful, probably more than exist on any given forgeworld though
>>76074737Its a shame, I love the mecha aesthetic of the tau but I absolutely loathe their playstyle. Might get a few suits to paint up but fuck playing them.
>>76074798Look fine to me.
>>76074625Like I prefer it over the 5th ed. cover, which is incidentally by the same artist.
man, i sure picked a good time to get into dark eldar
>>76074709>TQ:does this confer more attacks or more chances to hit on the attacks you have :^)how I would change it is clearer language
Broke: fluffing gue'seva as oppressed groups fighting against the tyrannical imperium for a brighter futureWoke: fluffing gue'vesa as imperial citizens that were isekai'd by the dark gods as a joke to a tau world
>>76074784nice joke on the chaos termies.
>>76074811Only helps my point.
Repeating here Why does GW refuse to use 'Imperial Guard' in any current reference to them, the trademark-able 'Astra Militarum' can still be used in the marketing and on the codex. Just say "the Astra Militarum is comprised of the Imperial Guard and Imperial Navy, the term Astra Militarum, literally meaning space military, is used to distinguish formations that can be moved around the Imperium from local PDF Army and Navy elements".Problem solved, the guard would still be the guard and GW get's their precious copyright.
>>76074870>>76074876No, I was so proud of everyone for ignoring that spammed troll list but you just had to reply.
>>76074829the one you just posted is wayyy better. the new one has better color balance, and a better "scene" but everything else is just worse. The subject matter of the piece doesn't matter if the art is bad, or in this case, just mediocre.
dark eldar getting some love is based
One Twenty Three Nine Twelve Three Thirteen Five Nine Twenty Two Twenty One Zero Twenty One Ten Fifteen Five Seventeen Twelve Twenty One Ten Eighteen Eight Five Thirteen Nine Twenty Three Two Fourteen Seven Fifteen Seven Twelve Twenty One Twenty Five Sixteen Twenty Five Zero Twenty Three Twelve Twenty Three Thirteen Twenty Two Eight Nine Twenty Five Four Twenty Nineteen Eleven Fourteen Twenty Four Seventeen Nine Twenty One Zero Two Sixteen Sixteen One Twenty Two Zero
>>76074891I do my duty.
>>76074891“Haha jokes on you guys I was only pretending to be retarded“
>>76074846More chances to hit per attack. For example you cannot divide individual feet hit rolls between different units. Any given set of three rolls from a particular "attack" must all go into the same eligible target unit.Basically feet are explicitly modifying the sentence in the core rules that says:>You make one hit roll for each attack being made (see Making Attacks).
>>76074784>>76074876Primaris are just new space marine models... they were given fluff to justify the release, sure... but that's no different than, for example, Death Guard getting new models because surprise, there's a DG invasion now!Space Marines needed new models... the last major release was 3rd edition.
>people thought dark elfdar were going to get at least one new model
>>76074884IDK man, GW is just super anal about copyrights. This game will improve once their trademarks and copyrights run out.Sure I won't be alive for it but in a century 40k will have a Renaissance.
>>76074884Everything has to be in high gothic, which is why they also constantly use Drew Carey and Eaeaeldariii instead of eldar and their cooler cousins
>>76074952new Lelith is on its way, suck my comorraghan dick
>>76074950True we could use a few more lieutenants imo.
>>76074970Why is it still codex space marines then?
>>76074870>sisters skulls never on the trophy racksWhy not?
>>76075015because killing a nun is nothing to brag about?they're practically defenseless
>>76074737All I want is a non finecast Farsight.
>>76075032It's more brag worthy than killing a guardsman or a civilian.
>>76074784>gf plays sororitasHmm. Not sure what to think of it.
>>76074933>let me just show off the hand detail of AoS models...>the model is $195 dollars btw hehe :^)
>>76075015>implying you can tell the difference between a sister skull and a space marine skull
>>76074829as a DE player this cover fits our aesthetic way better. Guard still alive to be taken prisoner, creepy mandrakes crawling over prey, raiders coming out of portal shows speed and verocity of suprise attack boosted by the fact that there's already casualties inflicted. I also prefer the colours but that's my own opinion, I don't like direct contrasts and don't feel the orange fits DE
>>76074798I wasn't in last thread so I don't know anything about that. Some people just don't like the Elysian design. I will say I'm not a fan of the red and those anvil heads don't look in scale.
>>76074884Page 6 of the AM codex "From it's ashes were born the Imperial Navy and the Imperial Guard -known officially as the Astra Militarum." That was just the first official reference I found, I'm sure there are more. Plus they refer to them as guardsmen all the damned time including the most recent regimental standard on the website.
>>76075041I bet if they do they'll give him a new suit like they did with shadowsun, I'm guessing some kind of coldstar variant.
>>76075085Yes? In lore space marine skulls are bigger and thicker. Also normally they also include the helmet on the rack. You'd think there would be a couple sororitas helmets on the rack.
>>76074725Understandable then. Funnily enough we're at the best the game has been since mid 5th. There's definitely some 'pretty much everyone takes these' things like engage, but I personally tend to have some variance in mine. I take mission specific secondaries, while we stand, psychic ritual, mental interrogation, etc. You can fit other secondaries into your list well.
>>76074978>Still thinks it's a new lelith.lol at you
>>76074933>a million different factions that will never again receive support after their initial debut
>>76075077Shit yeah, Trademark can be renewed, but then again it has to be in use for that to happen.If GW releases nothing for the 'Astra Militarum' then in 10 years we can use it (not that we want to)
Who should be the next High Lords of Terra introduced in Big e speech device?
>have some resin candlesticks to use for basing materials on characters>the bases for non characters is just a patterned tiled floor using apoxie sculpt and a roller>make my first attempt to do put candles on a base by just using super glue to adhere it to the bases>the don't stick worth shit>make another base>this time I lightly press the candles in the apoxie sculpt so they're slightly pushed into the floor>most the candles stick well, the candelabras are too tall and prone to snapping>retry a third time with just candles, no candelabras>this time I push the candles into the base a bit and mold some apoxie sculpt onto the outside of the candles as extra melty wax>currently the apoxie sculpt cureIs this the way to go? How do you stick small bits to bases when it's not plastic to plastic?
>>76075085You can tell the difference between a male and female skull, let alone juiced up genetically modified male and female
>>76075045not at allsome guardsman could genuinely maim you with a bayoneta random civilian steelworker might beat you with a chain or somethingpoor nuns are so defenseless they gotta put them in power armor and it still ain't enough, falling to chaos and worse all the time
>>76075109I hope not, but GW will probably just use the coldstar over giving him an updated xv8
>>76074726GW's sense of scale is way off. A Marine chapter should be at last one million initiativ strong.
>>76075162Never had an issue with superglue, but if thats not working could always use a pin
>that'll be 190$ sir!
>>76075133HAHAHA that's exactly what I found out after I almost got sucked into AoS during that Slaves to Darkness release. Otherwise, they got some cool stuff, but I just couldn't ever give a shit about the lore... where as with 40k, even after a decade I'm still having questions pop up which lead me to investigate and find out even more
>>76075085> you can't tell the difference between a XY and a XX skull
Chaos bros, how do you deal with Space Marines? I get my shit kicked in every time
>>76075181I would really like to not be pinning 10 tiny little candles to every characters base. What would you even use for a pin? I think some of them wouldn't even fit a paperclip.
>>76075096Fair point, though personally I think the scale works fine, besides the neck being a little on the long side.Really I think a key issue is the inconsistent drybrushing on the gas mask lenses and canister, some look great while others less so.> Perhaps I'll get myself some of that GW technical paint they use for red gems, might be good for lenses of all sorts; though I have a glaze paint available, I'll try that first.
>>76075169Imagine if he got the coldstar's 20" M
>>76074829i like the smug look on this guy's face better. this is the face of a man enjoying the grim darkness
>>76075196There are no chromosomes in plastic or resin anon.
>>76075162Two things:Did you try washing the resin?Have you tried scratching/roughing up the contact surface of the resin with your hobby knife first? (just make a bunch of tiny crisscross cuts on the place where you plan to put the glue).Both those should help a lot and likely make just glue enough.
>>76075097Only if not renewed.>>76075142They don't have to release anything with the name, they just have to renew the trademark. US has some law about intent to use, but GW is definitely still using the mark if they are using the name in anything they produce.
>>76075162If you have some spare candles maybe try a few different brands of glue, might make a difference.
>>76074829that guardsman is about to blow one of those guys away
>>76075251I've said this before and I'll say it again, if i were in the ecclesiarchy, I'd start putting guard vets and stormtroopers in sister power armor with wigs, just say they're women cause they got a boob plate or some shit
>>76075263I have a fuck ton of candles, I think I'd run out of apoxie sculpt or bases first. I have some super thin shit that I bought, but that generally dries way too quick. Then I have some more gel like shit from army painter, which kinda sucks in that it takes 30 or so seconds to make a stable bond.>>76075257I have been washing but not scoring. Wouldn't it be better to score with a low grit file?
>>76075207Don't see why superglue wouldn't work for something that small
>>76075259For sure, but trademarks are pretty irrelevant anyway. It's just the copyright that matters and I have no idea how it would work with 40k.
>>76075329The issue is when you grab the base, sometimes your fingers will bump into one and knock it loose.
>>76075251>highlight female face like you would highlight male face>looks male>>76075293>highlight female face like a female face >looks female
I want to praise the Omnessiah. Hows that Mechanicus game? Can you do op stupid shit
>>76075222Okay, maybe not so bad.
Can this be used after a reroll?
>>76075284That would piss off the real sisters a lot.
>>76075352>table top game>PC game>not sureKek
>>76075346>trademarks are pretty irrelevant >just the copyright that matters and I have no idea how it would work with 40ku wot m8
>>76075352I just don't like them because they keep getting new models they don't need
>>76075386I dont see why not. It isnt a futher reroll or anything. It just flat out changes a dice result.
>>76075401Trademarks matter for advertising and marketing. Public domain is the bit that would matter for GW not having control over the IP.
Would any of you read the Book of Lorgar?Also, what's a real-world equivalent?
Looking at my random collection of Daemon models, I haveKaranakInfernal EnchantressPoxbringer20 Bloodletters10 Daemonettes10 Plaguebearers3 Nurglings3 Blood Crushers3 Fiends5 Flesh Hounds5 Seekers3 Plague DronesWhat else should I add to that to make it a proper Daemons army?
>>76074797pressure might be too high, looks like you're getting sputter. nice colors tho
>>76074817Weird, im the exact opposite. dont mind the long range playstyle, But their aesthetics are shit and generic as fuck, and not in the iconic good way, just in the bland way.
>>76075319It should probably work either way just fine. I'm just used to using a knife and i know that's effective. You're just trying to to establish some rough "tooth" for the glue to attach to.
>>76075449What do the numbers mean, fleshling
>>76075466I like sisters models but desu I still prefer to use all helmets.
>>76075392I don't see why they would have a problem with sister john, she's just a little butch
>>76075376Paint is not the issue.
>>76075319>>76075499Oh if you're still having trouble after that score both surfaces you're gluing. That will definitely work, but it might be a little irritating to properly score the base itself just at the candle attachment point.
>>76074737>Two of them have load outs that are just plasma rifle and flamer>One has two flamers>they all pay a premium for Bs 2+They will never be good.
>>76075041Kitbash your own man. I used red dog minis parts and a stock commander. Tabard is from an eldar wraight guard.
>>76075531The top left is the only good looking one and that's just because it's paint only.
>>76075041I want a non metal Azrael.
>>76075475How many points do you want to build towards and do you have a preferred god considering you have a bit of everything except Tzeentch? I would grab another Nurgle SC! and use the nurglings from the plaguebearers and some of the rows from the nurglings to turn the 6 to 9, nurglings are some of the best objective holders in the game. Plaguebearers are still a decent tarpit. You are going to need some greater deamons if you want to play above 1k points, bloodthirsters still kind of suck, LoC is great, KoS is also really good since it can sprint up most of the board in a turn then charge if it's an all Slaanesh detachment.
>>76075539Paint literally is the issue. There are so many extra heads you don't have to use any particular ones you don't like.
>>76075475you'll want a greater deamon, i suggest a keeper of secrets. undivided can work, but you don't have a lot of threatening units.
>>76075577I guess the number of points I'd like is whatever the most commonly played number of points is. I don't have a preferred god, the only reason I don't have any Tzeentch is because I can't think of a good way to paint them
>>76075610A well executed stupid meme
Only I may know the truth
>>76075633I liked it better on stealth suits.
>>76075678That is untol lion wakes up and kicks his ass for not doing anything for who knows how long
>>76074709Reposting. Cant decide on a squad of Relic Cataphractii with combis and fists or a squad of Aggressors, both for mixed anti-horde and melee anti-armor. Will also be used for tagging and holding far objectives or surprise flanking heavy armor>Relics>tankier with a 2+/5++>squad of 5, 15w total>deep strike>longer range anti-horde at 24">expensive at 200 ptsAggressors>T5 3+, no invuln>squad of 3, 9w total>assault weapons make them quicker to reposition>much cheaper at 120/135>primaris stratagems>no deepstrike, needs a CP to outflankBlack Templar btw
>>76075699Nobody cares about your marines faggot.
>>76075716>WAAAAAAH STOP PLAYING FACTIONS I DON'T LIKE!Faggot
>>76075743>WAAAAH I cant make a list on my ownfaggot
So are all the models in Assault on Black reach plastic?I might be picking it up tomorrow for less than 100 cad and I'm just wondering what im in for. I have never seen these deffcoptas before.Does anyone one here own it and can you give me a little rundown on the models?Sorry for asking twice hoping new people see this this time
>>76075716Im trying to finish my Indom marines so I can move onto my Crons and Eldar faggot. Any suggestions?
>>76075696how did he paint is like clear plastic?
>>76074797Just finished these guys last night. I still have to do their bases. but functionally the models are done. I probably will use them as breachers if I ever do take them to battle, but I'm at the point where I'm painting models from years ago. I made this team back when I made a gamble that one day pulse carbines would be worth taking and since I already had 48 other firewarriors with pulse rifles. Its good to finish them though. I might move onto some old crisis suits, or some pathfinders.
>>76075623Some stuff you need to know is that daemons are probably one of the highest skill-based armies and that this is the first time since their inception as a standalone army in 40k that they are actually good. Right now there are 2-3 daemon lists if you want to use those for a base to build towards, I think the all Slaanesh one is a lot harder to play than the Slaanesh + a detachment of nurglings and an exalted LoC. That being said all of this will change as soon as Daemons get a 9th ed codex so pace yourself. Especially because it's a horde army with 4 distinct factions that' don't really blend as well as anyone would like but aren't that great on their own either
>>76075768Yes. They're all plastic and very simple sculpts.
>>76075768yeah they're all plastic.
>>76075761>WAAAAAAAH DON'T ASK QUESTIONS IN THE THREAD SPECIFICALLY MADE FOE ASKING QUESTIONS AND SEEKING ADVICE ON THE GAME WARHAMMER 40K IT HURTS MY FEELINGSFaggot

>>76075768Yes, all minis are plastic. GW reprinted parts of it as a product to sell to toy stores. It's all very easy to build, you can easily look up what the minis look like online, deffcoptas are super easy to build as is everything else in the box. Bad news is that if you don't want the marines, you are going to have some issues reselling them since primaris are the new hotness.
>>76075458Of course.https://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/khw/index.htm this site also has a bunch of other free occult books perfect for any Word Bearer player.

How do I get the most out of my Master of Possession + Venomcrawler combo?
>>760757833d printed I guess.
>>76075846Based, are there actually recasters that recast in metal?> Pic is my LR Mars Alpha from HF
>>76075846If you have some clippers you are willing to wreck, you can remove the tab and pin them to a regular base.
>>76075847keep them together and cast spells
>>76075783He's a super good painter it's a variant of nmm
>>76075785Cursed paint scheme
>>76075681Not a fan of the meme, myself. I do like that the base suits in this picture are classic stealth suit colors though.
>>76075895> Clipping off tabs from metal miniaturesHeresy, not to mention it kills their market value.
>>76075847You don't? Summoning is pretty atrocious. The venomcrawler is okay, but not good. The MoP is best off casting buffs for oblits and possessed. Their only combo is the MoP hanging out in range for the bonus to summon, but you can't move and summon while the Venomcrawler wants to keep moving towards the enemy lines and summoning tends to disappoint.
>>76075938>market valueFuck off mtg fag
Wildcard question, but would Fire Warrior have been a better FPS if the gameplay had more emphasis on tactical gameplay instead of half-baked run-and-gun? Would make it more fitting lorewise since you fight shit like space marines and gorillion different chaos marine variants later down the campaign.
>>76075957The planet broke before the fire caste did
>>76075783Printed in a clear resin or made a mold and cast in a clear resin.>>76075938Is there really a market for the older pewter mins? I love how the special regiments look, but if I wanted to build an army in those styles, I would just look for a recaster rather than deal with the fuckery of resellers
>>76075895>>76075846The local FLGS has a filiament printer and I got them to print out some solid bases, which i then drilled out a slot. Better result than pinning.
>>76075828I'll keep that in mind for whenever I end up with a 3D printer.
>>76075987Fuck, I completely forgot /vg/ also had warhammer general.

>>76075963anon, that game is almost old enough to post here and was a niche as fuck title in the ps2 era that sold poorly. Most people have at best played a torrented computer copy through vms
>>76075960> Not wanting the option to sell your army so that someone may continue to enjoy the models in a non-mutilated state.Let me guess, circumcised? >>76075976Yeah, if you're actually full-on starting a Guard army you'll need at least 60 infantry; that's gonna cost a pretty penny if metal. Go with recasters unless you can find a good deal on ebay, it does happen sometimes.
>>76075798>>76075809>>76075833Thanks guys, excited to hear they are all plastic. They guy painted some of them so I'm hoping I can strip the models without ruining them and breath new life on them. I have primaris silverskulls from idom but I might just add these guys on for fun too.Especially hyped for the plastic coptas, I was expecting finecast

I NEED THE TYRANNIC WAR VET DREADNOUGHT WHERE DO I GET A RECAST?
>>76076227nice try james
>>76076012For your Battlewagon(s) I'd suggest either swapping to a Bonebreaka or a Gunwagon with the Da Boomer/Forktress. You don't really have anything to hang out in the BW and shoot, so the open topped is wasted. Three painboys is overkill. One or two. I imagine the Mek is for hanging out in the Naut. But basic Meks are pretty meh. Generally get a Mek with KFF or don't bother. Grots are pretty bad, and given it's your 4th troops consider spending those points elsewhere like Kommandos or something. If you want a cheap backline thing consider a Smasha Gun, or even just 10 Boyz. Give your Nobs Klaws.

Just ordered an Indomitus box. How should I paint the SMs and Crons?
>>76076265Noted. Will play around with this in battlescribe and see what I can come up with. Appreciate it man
>>76076147I'm honestly not sure. Warpsmith is both a key word and unit title, there's a decent chance it means the unit, warpsmith of <legion> rather than keyword warpsmith, so a lot of people might argue with you on that unless they play CSM. The fact that I have to juggle both a rules pamphlet and a splat book makes it bad enough. But on that same note, a MoP has to sprint every turn to keep up, so I don't really see that working for more than a turn or two anyways.
>>76076049The limited edition made to order sister. Here's how to paint any of the standard heads in a "cute" style.
>>76076335I dont speak corona virus, do you have a translated picture?
>>76076365No. I don't either, but I don't really need the text to follow it. However, if you feel you need it the camera based google translate app on android can handle machine translating it.
is it worth putting support systems on stealth suits?26 points for a burst cannon is pretty expensive, and while it'd benefit from the 5 point ats, i'm not sure i like the idea of 31 point stealth suits
>>76076439how are their bolters scaled compared to marine ones?could I use them for my guard?
>>76076456Old marines or primaris? Cause primaris bolters are notably bigger.
Tau are cute and valid
>>76076490Well, new sisters are about necromunda escher size, which is to say maybe a head taller than Cadians. I imagine a guardsman could hold it just fine without it looking too big.
>>76074797I’m waiting on transfers still.
>>76076439How would Sisters react to their ultimate wet dream, the Legion of the Damned?
I want to assemble a small loyalist army before the next CSM codex comes out, probably patrol sized. How's Deathwatch doing right now? No primaris though.
>>76076554Well, picture a wet dream while awake....Which is just an orgasm, actually.
>>76076546throw some white on those coils
>>76076312SM bases BT BrosCrons Some cool blue paint sheme?
>>76076554I think it's cool that Sisters now have their own LOTD that is essentially an order of Celestines.
>>76076554Those aren't Black Templars
>>76076610I’m brightening them when I get around to the transfers. I’m switching back to Slaanesh for a while.
>>76076554What are they up to in the fluff these days, anyway?
>>76076644They helped save the BA's when the Nids invaded Baal. Think that's about it.
>>76076644Their sightings have reportedly increased dramatically during the Psychic Awakening.
>>76076572Go BA. Red is better.
>>76076554> Sisters wet dream> LoD
>>76076632why won't they give us guard saints reeeeeeeeeeeeee
>>76076680The Big E doesn't even notice his so called Brides. The only ladies he has eyes for are those he eats for his daily breakfasts and the ones who have topknots and are mutes.
>>76076456They're smaller than marinelet bolters.
>>76076621Any tricks to making non-metallics look good on Necrons?
>>76076697Does he like the SoS? I would imagine he see's them as a particularly unpleasant tool
>>76076721He fostered their organization and kept them as close to him as Custodes, the Emperor just likes his harems filled with tough bitches.
>>76076697> number of Saint in the SoS ?> number of Saint in the SoB ?
>>76075492Yeah trying to dial it in. New needle size and I'm new to air brushing so I'm using my DE as a testbed. I can always strip and retry. The colors are what I wanted just need practice
Is the company who makes 40K still planning on making actual cartoons and or the live-action series?
>>76076697but SoB are a full on army while no even uses SoS
>>76076697Im quite sure there is more SoB in Terra than SoS, even now that the SoS are back from their exile.
>>76076780They've licensed stuff out that's in production yeah. Not something they're doing in house though
>>76076697>The Big E doesn't even notice his so called Brides.> Called Alicia and her friends into his Throne Room> Empowers and speaks to Celestine> Has spoken to Ephrael and called her his champion
>>76076632I don't since it reads like the most "ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL" shit ever.
>>76076757>>76076721>>76076697ANd we know hes a hardy sob since he doesnt even mind that they are blanks. At that point I bet he likes the challange of making real human connection to girls who are anathema to him and most of humanity and making them feel special and loved despite not having souls.
>>76076680>those hairy arms.
>>76076837Sisters of Silence have free reign to walk the Imperial palace
>>76076841It's the exact same thing as LOTD except they're golden and blessed instead of ghost-ridery and damned.
WHY are there no images of Saint Mina? And what is her last name? TOO MUCH information is lacking!
>>76076697> Old bitchs being jealous because SoB were allowed to go in front of the Golden ThroneDeal with it, there is new girls in town now.
>>76076862Big Anatolian Hairy Arms
>>76076876>>76076697Ladies ladies, the Emperor has enough love in his heart for both of you!
Has the Emperor accepted his own divinity yet?What is it the sisters of silence see in place of warp creatures?
>>76076876desu, if SoB's continue creating greater daemon types SoS will become progressively obsolete
Has anyone here tried painting ork flesh with the contrast paint of the same name? Is it any good
>>76076868what is the actual name of the emperor? tom the emperor?
>>76076402No, But considering nothing is worth it in the tau codex anyways, might as well go ham.but stealth suits currently have had a little revival in 9th, mainly as a way to infiltrate up the board and then act as a sacrificial lamb to move block the opponent. so that the tau can claim objectives first.Its not a good strategy since it requires spending like 300 points+ just to delay your opponent a turn.
>>76076876>They need permission to go inside the throne room
Why does almost every army, but especially Imperial Guard, use silver/metallic weaponry when way back in the year 2,020 we don't even do that? Why aren't more weapons black/tan/gray?
>>76076868Isn't Alicia Dominica the only one whose name is know ?i'm more curious about Arabella, the only one with no confirmed death
>>76076929because warhammer has an old fashioned sci fi feel to itnot a modern onejust paint your guns black
>>76076936Real talk, how fucked up would the soul of someone borne from a psyker and a blank's union be like?
>>76076876why are newgirls always like this? We've rolled with the Emperor millennia before you were a thing, and will will long after your order is dead and forgotten newfag.
>go to LGS for the first time>2 native americans and an asian guy playing at the tablewtf bros I thought 40k was a white hobby
>>76076966Nobody tell Anon SoS were abolished after the Horus Heresy.
>>76074709Can make into marines easily?
>>76076993Why do you ask things we can't answer
>mfw the Emperor's waifu collection starts fighting each other
>>76076929Most, if not all, Guard art has their lasguns in colors not silver.
>>76076929because it's more visually interesting on a 28mm miniature
Help me pick a klan ork brosI like deffdredsI like having melee and shooting but lean a little towards shooty.Okay with infantry but lean away from huge hordesDon't want flyersI like camo pants (bloodaxes) and b/w checker patterns (Goff's)Also noob to gameplay, I'm more of a painter dipping toes into actually getting a playable army
Wow... a long time ago I was in my lfgs. Owner was placing his order for AoBR. He asked if I wanted two boxes for $80 total. First 40K purchase I made.Still got my 6 deffkoptas and all my boys...
>>76076893Unknown, it seems that it didn't come up in conversation when he spoke to Bobby.
>>76076929Silver/Metallic?You realise that lasguns in artwork are almost 99% Green or whatever colour the regiment uses (unless its wood) except like the barrel and power pack.> The only exception seems to be autoguns wielded by cultists (so produced informally and lacking standardization) or where it is a stylistic choice by the artist.You have a bit more of a point on Bolters but even those only have the magwell and grip being silver-ish, the top and sides are often in chapter colours.
>>76076985Nah senpai, its just a nonpoor hobby if you are doing it right.The regulars at my shop that shape the campaign are a Black lawyer, a Chinese doctor, a Hispanic Account and two white Military Bros.They are all successful and nice enough to invite scrubs like me over to their individual houses to play on each of their custom tables. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have gotten any games in during this shit fuck of a year.
>>76076893>What is it the sisters of silence see in place of warp creatures?They saw their true form, in Watchers of the Throne there is some mention about it when Aleya face them.
>>76077029Rules wise I'd suggest Death Skulls.
>>76076993Sure, snip the sword and add a bolter. Snip the shield and add an arm. If you dont use primaris shit maybe terminator stuck shaved down and green stuffed appropriately would look pretty tight.We need the sprue to know for sure though.
>>76076939We also know Catherine's last name: Elysius.
>>76076966> death and forgottenWasn't that exactly the sate of the SoS order just some time ago ?
>>76077054How come? Just because they have the strongest rules at the moment?
Can someone post a quick example of what a 750-1000 pt imperial guard army would look like these days? I just want an idea of what I'm in for in terms of buying models, i've never done a horde army before...
>>76076876Now that looks like an Order that would do well in tournaments!
>>76077093The new Christmas battleforce
It's time to test your dedication to the franchiseIf you had your choice, who would you trust from the West for a good comic series about Imperials or Chaos or Xenos or whatever, free of GW meddling?For example, Frank Miller?Warren Ellis?Andrew Hussie?Who?Conversely, who from the East would you trust to make a manga series about 40k?Buronson?Makoto Yukimura?Shiro Tsunashima?Hirano Kouta?
>>76077081Never read it before, where does that come ?
>>76077119One of the SoB books by James Swallow. Hammer and Anvil or Faith and Fire.
>>76077038Seriously?That's an important fucking topic.>>76077047I'm curious as to what their true form could actually be though.
>>76077105Nice troll mate.................................... I've already read 1,000 times that it's horrible
>>76077093In 9th Edition I'd say minimum 60 Infantry supported by Manticores and Leman Russ tanks.If you want an infantry army you'll want more like 100 infantry plus some shock troops like Bullgryn.If you want Mechanised you can reduce the number of squads a little and bring a Chimera for each squad supported by Sentinels and Tanks.If you want Armoured bring minimal infantry (30) and spam tanks (Around 5-6)
>>76077110Garth Ennis is a fucking retard cunt faggot, but he could probably make something pretty good about some guardsmen judging from his vietnam stories in punisher maxstill hate him but his comics are at least a bit less pozzed than most
40kg, I am taking matters into my own hands. WE will give Saint Mina a last name! Respond to this post with ideas.
>>76077110I want a comic about Eldar or Tzeentch by Grant Morrison, with art done by Mike Allred. Alternately, Jonathan Hickman doing an Admech story would be pretty cool.I don't really mess with manga.
Do you guys paint fully assembled?I'd you do, how do you reach those hidden away bits?I have yet to finish my army but I am about 75% of the way through and I always do sub assemblies for everything, arms legs, chest, weapons backpacks etc.And on videos I watch online people tend to have the minis already assembled and I was wondering if I'm giving myself more work than needed
>>76077093Depending on the price for the Christmas box its not bad to start an army, it sucks if you already have an IG army.My 1000pt list would be2x Tank Commanders, one Battlecannon with 3x Heavy Bolters, one Executioner with 2x Plasma cannonsPlatoon Commander2x Armored Sentinel w/ Autocannon6x Infantry Squad2x Manticores
Wow, what an ugly cover.
>>76077175Generally if your brush can't reach it, you're likely not seeing it from tabletop/hip height
>>76077186I really hate that artist in general.
>>76077134Maybe discussing politics and religion is taboo in their household.While his stance on it appears to softening Bobby is still a staunch atheist even in the face of "miracles"
>>76077186I can't not see the flying rectangle after that artfag critiqued it...
>>76077135Is this a troll? What's wrong with it lol
>>76076961idk. sidenote I always had a really grimderp idea about a pair of characters. >There were two twin sisters born, one a blank, one a pwerful psycker.> Both became inquisitors. they really only had a mutual professional bond nothing more. ususally dont work together.>one particularly grusume event, the sisters actually did work together, a powerful demonic aperition. It was terrorizing a planet. It would keep away from the blanks potent anti-warp signiture.>It actually attacked and mortally wonded the psycker sister. >Medical techpriest staaff try to keep her alive. failing. Instead psycker casts a spell to embed her power and signuture into her body.>other sister skins pycker sisters body and wheres as a cloak.>THe blank signature and the psyker signature of the skin cloak cancel each other out, blanks reading is pretty much that of a regular human, maybe a little more psyckicly active. >Hunts down the apperition who now cannot sense the blank. Blank takes off cloak and ghostbusts aperition.>Now blank goes around the Imperium blasting fouls using the dead flayed pycker sister ans a psychic disguise.>She sometimes wispers to it when she doesnt think anyone is around,her retinue notices, but they never bring it up.
>>76077042I dunno, pretty poor yet able to afford 40k just fine. Though, to be fair, I live in low cost state that's looking to hike up costs on everything in next 6 years.
>>76077186I wonder how they will somehow fuck up the Tau cover
>>76077175Varies by mini. For some it is absolute hell, but others it's fine
Hey... look over there.Oops. Can’t talk.Never mind.
>>76077277He looks like a war boy from mad max.
>>76077265Kroot front and center
>>76077233It kinda weirds me out that that can happen in the settingI just read the first last chancers book and Gappo just seemed retarded to me for being an atheist, especially what with the warp travel and the tech-priests all around getting results
>>76077288Kroot are kool though. What would make it shit is some big ugly ethereal on there.
Does anyone find it funny that Mortarion hates psykers while he himself is a psyker?
>>76077144>>76077179awesome, thank you. Not too far off with what I thought (at least 50 troops)>>76077240they didn't seem to like the anti-aircraft tank that came with it, nor the single sentinel, and the heavy weapons teams (but keep in mind i have no idea what i'm talking about)
>>76077259I wouldnt call you a poorfag unless youre living check to check and spend money on shit you shouldnt while struggling.By no means am I rich but I at least have a decent house with an easily affordable mortgage while nearing the end of my union payscale with a nice 401k.Thus every month I can afford to spend $50-100 on a hobby.
Does anyone know exactly when WarHams Episode 11 is available on YouTube?
>>76077315very similar as to how i feel about the faggot community
How do I get better at painting faces
>>76077297Bobby I guess at least has the advantage of being from a more rational time. I guess in part it'd down to what you consider to be a god and the answer to that in universe may well be very different to out of universe
>>76077365Same but with trannies.
>>76077186Its even more irritating in that the kabalite on the left looks fine, just draw something like that front and centre and I would have been happy
>>76077365Not gonna lie, gave me a good "heh". Thanks anon.
>>76077315If I were a psyker I would still probably hate psykersthey're generally kind of shitty and retarded and prone to blowing themselves up, or blowing up those around them, or getting possessed by daemons, or getting blown up by daemons
>>76077370I guess we do have alot more information about the workings of gods in that setting but it's still offhave they covered how roboute deals with most people being as religious as the avg man of the middle ages?
>>76077367Base, wash, drybrush.Simple enough, works well and unless you're going full on golden demon, quite adequate.
>>76077388What about blowing themselves up and those around them WHILE being possessed by demons?
>>76077315Mortarion is the Primarch who is the most evil. Every other traitor Primarch has a legitimate reason to turn traitor, or turned traitor for reasons out of their control, but Mortarion has exactly zero (ZERO) reasons to do so except out of pure malice.>Hates Psykers>Won at Nicaea so now Psykers are banned>Still turns traitor because I HATE PSYKERS
>>76077373'sup tranny anon, you gonna get the choppy whoppy?do you have autism?how big are your tits?
>>76077413that toogenerally not people you wanna be aroundand that's before you get into the less violent but still kinda creepy and violating stuff like them trying to take peeks into your mind or successfully predicting parts of the future but not telling you for whatever reason, or thinking they saw a part of the future and being wrong
>>76077435Thing is... There's got to be good psykers too. Like how there are good and bad non-psykers. I think that all the dangers of psykers are real but I can't help but feel sorry for them because on top of all the trouble and pain of being mentally connected to the warp, almost everyone hates their guts in their own team even if they've never done anything wrong. Being a psyker must be a lonely and loveless existence.
>>76077419NoNoNot big yet but soon.
>>76077404Yeah it's a major theme in the novels that feature him
Anon, why are you browsing this heretical Taiwanese Goose Farming forum and not painting your models?
>>76077474Careful Anon, you're starting to sound too compassionate.
I want to see a Fallen Angels group trying to cut their way through Alpha Legion and Dark Angels armies out to kill each other and them
Army to match this vibe?
>>76077479>Not big yet but soon.Prove it
>>76077491I don't paint, it covers the detail hard working designers have made for us
>>76076862Well, he is a Turk
>>76077479would you let an anon grabby milkies when they get big?
>>76077505Primeris Marines (TM)
>>76077534Yes please and also call me a dirty tranny while you do it~
>>76077491 I don't have any models
How bad of an idea is it to bring minis on a plane? I am leaving for Texas for 2 weeks ish and am still trying to get ready for a tournament that will be on the 13th. There's no painting requirement which helps, but I have a few conversions that need done that I will likely want to get done in while I'm in Texas. I'll be driving down but flying back.
>>76077491too cold to prime outside, nowhere to prime inside w/out pissing off roommates
>>76077491I got my half of the indomitus box to start the hobby as Necrons. I superglued my Overlord together in the excitement and am now paralyzed by fear.There is so much of the model that will be a bitch to paint now.I have the Warden and Cryptek in pieces ready for assembly but now I think I should prime everything before I glue them together.For primer I am using the Platemail Metallic from Army Painter.Will priming them first make them more difficult to assemble?
>>76077491i'm not planning on painting any time soon, though i did get in a model i could do in maybe 2/3 hours easy
>>76077550prime in the bathroomrun your shower so the ventilation system activates, otherwise you'll be hotboxing lung-damaging gasses.
>>76077496It's not fair! >:,(
>>76077491I don't want to chip it. I can't buy any fucking blu tack, nowhere has it locally. So I have to wait for my base to cure before I can glue my dude onto it and start painting.
>>76077491>Anon, why are you browsing this heretical Taiwanese Goose Farming forum and not painting your models?taking a break, going to work out how to repaint some dark eldar stuff and debate whether to put some more stuff together for my Word Bearers
>>76077474ofc there are good psykersif I were a psyker I'd be a good psykerbut you gotta be alot more careful with psykers and it makes sense most abhor them, as not only are they fucky to begin with, but they're kinda reality bendy, and chaos grants psyker prowess to people which is another thing to be wary of>>76077486should I read them?I've been avoiding nu-fluff but that sounds liike it could be interesting, an atheist who is venerated as a saint dealing with all the people around him
>>76077491Slowly basing them and waiting for them to dry
>>76077577I'm taking the piss out of channer culture, dw. Emotions are good for you.
>>76077556With superglue you can just stick the model into a freezer and that'll weaken the bond so you can pop it apart.
Just wondering are all the narrative stuff GW's been putting out(Pariah Nexus and Charadon) will their be a definitive end to those stories like Cadia?
>>76077550>too cold to prime outsideHonestly temperature is over rated as a factor. If it's in the 20's, just do a couple and hurry back inside and you'll be fine.
>>76077521*BLAM*>>76077546*BLAM BLAM*>>76077550The Emperor protects. Prime them in your bedroom and lock the door.>>76077556*BLAM*Fear is no excuse to not be doing the Emperor's work.If you survive your wound I suggest you prime the models in pieces and paint them in manageable sections. At least for your HQs.
>>76077601I hope not, I hope they forget about them and never do it again
>>76077491I painted models earlier today let me rest.
>>76077545I totally would if I couldI would even pat your head, you would have to put up with me calling you a based tranner instead of a dirty tranny though
would you have bought this?
Would you recommend Death Guard players to get the new War zone and/or Plague Purge Mission books?
>>76077617>The last good editionYes
>>76077601Same as vigilus and apparently every black crusade ever.Chaos is fought off but not before they accomplishes some super-secret objective and claim victory.
>>76077491I painted my first ones last week but haven't found the time to do anymore since
>>76077621Hm yes give me a sec to take a look on these books that have not been released yet and I will tell you what I think.
>>76077608*groans as I bleed out* im waiting for new guard*dies*
>>76077621>Would you recommend Death Guard players to get the new War zone and/or Plague Purge Mission books?If your play group likes doing narrative missions sure.
>>76077617Hell to the fucking yes! I love oldhammer minis. I recently picked up some old marine models just for fun, if I could get one of those that would be even better!
>>76076572Deathwatch first born are sitting real pretty with 2 wounds and SIA. Also killteams can get you 5 termies with 3 wounds and OBSEC
>>76077491Cause I just got home from work and I too tired to paint my orks.
>>76077617anon I did buy thatgave a friend the marines and started my ork army that way

>>76077661I see mold lines

>>76074737>file.org/r/1g6bbnxyrHi, I´m new to the game and the greater good is been tempting me. I would like to start playing 9th edition with the Tau. But where do I can see the stats of the models and units ? I manages to find the codex of 7th e and I know the the codex of 9th e will come....eventually. My question is, who people is playing and making armis of the tau empire without the information..... if a brother of the fire cast will help me to get that info I could stop hour of search in the web....Tanks to however read all of this.
I have started Space Marines recently and am going to do a tournament soon, but I have no idea what in the fuck to bring. Dark Angels is my chapter. Here is what I have>redemptor dreadnought>3 centurions>5 devastators>6 eradicators>10 assault intercessors>10 assault marines>6 outriders>4 ravenwing bikers>all the Indomitus characters>primaris tech marine>5 hellblasters>azrael (but primaris scale)
>>76077631While I loathe the Heretic I approve of these models. Rest easy Anon. And get those based ASAP.>>76077636MEDIC!!>>76077653I cant blame an Ork for being an Ork *BLAM*

>>76077584They're not exactly must read literature... or even particularly good but the dark imperium ones are kind of interesting in terms of understanding what's going on with bobby and the primaris and how they've been received by the Imperium.
>>76077661I'm going to build an Intercessor squad after dinner since at least I can do that.
>>76077668Of course you do. I paint like shit my dude.
>>76077617I did many moons ago
>>76077613:^)U sure something like that's gonna happen?
>>76077491I don't own models either, what are you gonna do about it, commiesar?https://youtu.be/NffIqVrnZJg?t=58
>>76077692Das a hol’ lotta dakka anon, but DA has some pretty rough and rowdy terminators you could be using
How much y'all want to bet for the Ork or Tyranid codex release GW is going to put out Warzone: Octarius
>>76077661Already shot in the back of the head but heres the pic
Does the Primaris Chaplain have any use?
>>76077584Easy for you to say>°I'd be one of the good ones!"When you have the narrative knowledge of what Warp and psykers are like. In-universe, you'd be an ignorant little nitwit whose mind is filled by morbid visions and knowledge you had never even thought of. If you ever spoke up about it, you'd get beaten half-dead by your father's belt for being a deranged weakling. If you ever manifested any powers, you'd either be hung from a noose, set on fire and lashed a hundred times (order nonspecific) or abducted into a Black Ship and hauled-off to be psychic chow for a pseudo-dead goop on a shiny, golden chair-shaped machine. Anything remotely positive is a one-in-a-quadrillion chance.
>>76077661I am taking a break so i don't rage and throw away the custom arms i got from PGtM because the wrists don't allow for any contact with the hands. they are also slightly shorter and missing a major feature and I want to calmly try and fix them so they work instead of seeing red after gluing my fingers together for the 12th time and throwing away 15$ of arms
>>76077762I'd be extremely interested in that.
>>76077776Fuck yeah man, chanting Litanies n shit. They sure do do stuff.
>>76077758Ideally not buying new things.
>>76077762On one hand that'd be neat, on the the other fuck having to buy extra books when a codex is just coming out
So would the Chaos Battleforce box and Start Collecting Chaos Space Marines be a smart purchase for starting the army?
>>76077777even without narrative knowledge, we see alot of good psykers who get by on their own wits or seem mostly sane, mainly inquisitors, but also people like sgt. merrick and lt. kagethe only case in which I'd be a dead lil shit, it wouldn't matter if I was a psyker or not
>>76077776Buffed properly a master of sanctity can bend tanks.
>>76077851You're going to be staring at a lot of unpainted plastic. Pick one of the two and complete that before buying the other.
>>76077851Yep, good core of CSMs (which will hopefully be decent when they get 2Ws) and plenty of options.
>>76077852For every psyker that turned out okay, you have countless more that died pitiful deaths. Lynchings, daemonic possessions, Emperor's life support juice, you name it.Only reason you think there's a lot of good psykers is because misery porn about 99.99999999% of them having terrible fates isn't as audience-grabbing book material as bolter porn.
>>76077134Here's various extracts of her fighting demons.
>>76077910>Emperor's life support juice>pitiful
>>76077776prayers don't cause your priest to explode, easier to chant, and can't be denied
Damn boys A Thousand Sons has been a wild ride, almost makes me want to start a TS army

Termis good, Havocs good, Oblits good. Greater Possessed and Daemon engines are okay together, but codex will show whether those are great or bad.Battleforce is better to start off with, since it is limited time.

>>76077955>3 squads with same loadout, not sure if you can get 4.Keep in mind the CSM SC box CSMs are monopose and loadout, you can work around it with the extra parts from the full CSM sprues in the battleforce to an extent.>Greater PossessedIf nothing else GPs are great for filling in the last points of your list with a solid beatstick for cheap, mine have done good work with their buffing potential being more of a side benefit.

I know this would be horribly labour-intensive, but what would you lot think of me dying cheese cloth and using small strips of it to make ghillie suit Eldar? From the pic, I like the texture of the right and the coloring of the left. And balls to paying so much for eldar ranger models.
r8 my heat hawkwanted to try something new
>>76078247well...if you do it, post results because that sounds cool for an IG army...or maybe some special raven guard units....
how necessary are markerlights for tau?seems like you only get much use out of them if you get one hit or five hits, and bringing pathfinders for markerlights seems like not a great idea since pathfinders are both pricy and extremely squishy
>>76078147In a lot of 40k art you see many skulls all over the ground, but why? Were the bodies left there for the flesh to rot off for months? If they are recent then their flesh must have been burned off, perhaps by incendiary bombs, but the bone doesn't look burnt? And where are the rest of their bodies? You never see a pile of femur bones.Is someone in this battle field going out of their way to pile up these skulls?
>>76077994Imperial Guard from various different regiments
>>76078274>>76078292Should they be doing something?
>>76078247Do it on a test model before you try it on a real one. Also you could be able to just use watered down PVA on unpainted cloth, drape it how you want it on the model, wait for it to dry and then paint it, but I'm not 100% sure.
>>76078283Same reason literally every piece of artwork has the two sides fighting up against each other's faces: it looks cool.Literally 100% of X vs Tau art is unrealistic because Tau would be ten kilometers away from their enemies at any given time, and for some reason all art assumes they're being overrun in melee or something to that effect.
>>76078283well from playing halo multiplayer i know that sometimes you're hurrying back to the score circle with a huge target on your back because everyone is 'mirin your skulls but then they take you out and you fall like a sack of meat, causing all of your skulls to fall and scatter around you

>>76078306>watered down PVA on unpainted cloth, drape it how you want it on the model, wait for it to dry and then paint itI considered this, but dying the cheese cloth lets me skip the painting part, because that'd be a fucking chore if I make the strips as dense as I'd like.

>>76078420why do you hate kasrkin so much?scions are a much worse design
>>76078522probably, they look like normal people>>76078521>>76078502nigga you gay
>>76078545What is the more gay ?Being fucked by a woman or fucking a man ?
>>76078535tbf peggin is hot no, I don't play tau. I'm a coomer, I play slaanesh
Speaking of best girl, what the fuck happened with Shadowsun storywise? She supposedly disappeared during the Death Guard's assault on Startide Nexus... and the next post made by GW announced a miniature for her with a lore blurb that completely ignored what happened at Startide Nexus. What gives?
>>76078572Trick question, they're both gay.
>>76078545>sex with female>gaypick one faggot
>>76078589saying i'm gay won't help me find a woman to peg me, and i don't want to have sex with men, so it's simpler to say it isn't gay.
>>76078454Tau Riptide:>Oh, you're approaching me.FSE Riptide:>I can't beat the shit out of you without getting closer
>>76078524Not him.I don't get why guardfags act like kasirkin are god's gift to them. They're bog-standard cadians with some more armor. So what? I do like the old stormtroopers for their funny blast shield helmets, high collars,oversized NVGs, and excessive grenades, but personally, I don't think space troopers in plate armor look good at all. Give me cloth any day, like the old RT-era guardsmen.
>>76078572fucking a man is less gayif you're receiving you have a cock inside of you or a facsimile of oneif you're putting your cock in something it's less gay, though still very exceptionally gay to the point the difference doesn't matter muchalternatively, a good point could be argued that they are equally gay, but that topping a man is more masculine
>>76078619did you have a stroke anon?
>>76078576I also think pegging is hot, but specifically because it makes the girl more involved. I love it even more when she talks to the guy and gently reminds him what she's doing to his bum.there's plenty of bad porn out there where the girl just doesn't give a fuck and acts like a dead fish, and unfortunately there's also a great deal of bad pegging porn now where the guy is pathetic or the chick is doing that awful humiliation bit. Go away with that. my current favorite is when the guy or girl just swings the porn into something kinky, like the guy telling the girl to get between his legs instead of doing cowgirl, because he wants amazon position instead
>>76078619main difference is one is a real cock and one is a fake cock on a real woman.
>>76078631A stroke of his cock more like.
>>76078604because they have cool looking helmets and remind me of john halo
>>76078656>buying imagifiersBut why? You know that imagifiers come with the basic sisters box right? Sisters are expensive enough.
>>76078604I think you're missing the point of kasrkin while still being very close to it.Part of the appeal is that they look like souped up guardsmen, and that's sorta what they are.Veterans with stormtrooper training and some better equipment, and as a result, among the best soldiers in the galaxy, able to compete with even the best of the schola progenium and give even a daemonhost a run for it's money.I'll agree with you about scions.I do like old stormtroopers as well, they look d like sci-fi space troopers while still having a distinctly gothic warhammer-ish sort of look to them.The dudes with just cloth and berets looked cool too, though their backpacks are a bit bulky.Space SAS is a fitting look for stormies.
>>76078619> doing homo sex is less gay than doing heterosexual sex
Okay, wow, the pegging thing was meant to be a oneoff joke because I'm a shitlord when it comes to wordplay, you all really don't need to keep the topic going.
>>76078381>>76078454I guess I'll animate the scions beating the tau in the foreground while in the background I'll have the tau armour beating the Guard armour.What sept(s), regiment(s), and scions (I don't don't know how they're divided) should I use?
>>76078669because I need actual battle sisters and I'd hate to have a weird number of them
>>76078674What did you expect would happen? Might as well say something about trannies being infinitely better players then 4chan incels. It's a guaranteed (you)s post.
>>76078672>>76078642>>76078643romans would agree with me>>76078631no but thankewe for the concern
>>76078705I don't think the Romans cared about what was gay and what isn't. They had a castrated trap they'd pass around from emperor to emperor and marry him for legitimacy, and the concept of the trinity was basically invented by a cross-dresser.
>>76078682make 'em purple
>>76074944But isn't a successful hit roll a hit? If you roll three hit rolls, and all three of them hit, then don't you have three hits?
>>76078734Wait not the trinity, but the concept that all gods are aspects of the same one god, right?
>>76078682make the regiment steel legion since they tend to have armormake the scions the inquisition's black and red
>>76078656I see. I hate cadian helmets. It's the massive chin strap and how the sides of the helmet descend to the jawline that bug me. Also it has no brim. To each their own.
>>76078771Are there any steel legion stationed anywhere near tau space?
>>76078682Where you gonna get the models from?
>>76077491fucked up my painting hand and the lighting quality in my room is shite. also holding out for the day that I'll find some rattlecans in the exact shade of blue I need to start on my vehicles because I really don't want to paint a bunch of tanks by hand if I can avoid it
>>76078682Use the Rhoin Cobras
>>76078671>Part of the appeal is that they look like souped up guardsmen, and that's sorta what they are.>Veterans with stormtrooper training and some better equipment, and as a result, among the best soldiers in the galaxy, able to compete with even the best of the schola progenium and give even a daemonhost a run for it's money.I'm seeing a divide here. Models versus fluff. I've been ignoring fluff and looking entirely at the models. I understand and acknowledge why people enjoy the fluff. I'd still rather have my high-speed guys wearing minimal kit (basically just some vitals plates and a bump helmet) because mobility will do more to protect them than armor. I may help to note that my preferred guard is Tallarn.
>>76077505I R O N W I T H I NRONWITHOUT
>>76078782I find them pretty ugly myself, but I also find them far less ugly with the cool little gas mask and visor kasrkin haveI have a thing for faceless mook type helmets tho
what do you think the odds are that there will be new imperial guard models within the next year?i'm about to go all in on at least 60 troops and don't want to get PRIMARIS'd
>>76078834Those won't be necessary, I'm a 2D animator.
>>76078891Buy now because the new kit will cost more and have no notable improvements except female heads. Which you can already get 3rd party if you're a coomer.
>>76078896Good shit, hoping for the best.
>>76078870in 40k armor will protect you, especially carapaceif high speed operators could wear a set of semi powered full plate that would not only stop shrapnel, but .50 cal rounds and maybe even the occasional autocannon, they probably would wear itI can definitely see your meaning though, I think the nice thing about guard is the customizability, which allows you to run guard who do look like that if that's what you preferit's another reason why I prefer kasrkin, they're from cadia so they look like cadians and probably fight to some degree like cadians, death korp grenadiers are the sameI think GW should have done less of the scions stuff and more regimental stormtrooper types, rather than dudes who all look vaguely knight likeI mean you can still run dudes as regimental stormtroopers but they won't actually be affected by regimental rules which is sad
>>76078907this made me laugh but in a sad way. i guess star ship troopers DID have female soldiers, and was also one of my first great tits viewing, as my parents failed to realize there was nudity in it and rented it from blockbuster week after week
>>76078907not him but...I don't believe you that there won't be notable improvements because plastic cadians and catachans look retarded as fuck, ridiculously stocky too, compared to all the new models of similar scalethe command squads are a bit better off but even they're kind of agedif they're releasing new guard, they will look better than the current models, I'm even more certain of this after seeing new marbo, bolter bitch, and based black guy/sgt johnson/dillonhowever, I've been waiting for them to release new guard since 2016 and nothing has happened
>>76078522Who is the guy who does all the paint tutorials? Seems like a rather normal and cool guy
>>76078999generally carapace will protect you, it's gonna be rough against the species where the avg dude has a slightly under powered (for a plasma gun) but much more stable plasma gun, in which case yeah you want to be mobilethat's what you got catachans for though, to sneak up on them and get close
>>76079020duncan the two coats criminal?
>>76079020The fucking wingnut?

How would everyone feel about the next major story box or direction totally excluding the Imperium? A focus on the Tau fighting the Hive Fleets? Maybe models for the human Tau warriors?
>>76079125Two words:>Fuck>Yes.Also actually something that involves the auxiliary races.
>Ironstrider Ballistarii get two attacks>onager dunecrawlers get three>sentinels get one (1) melee attack regardless of whether or not they bring the chainsawI thought Cruddance was supposed to like Guard.
>>76079125i'd pay money for it
>>76079125My 2 armies are tau and tyranids so that seems just peachy to me.
>>76079125It would never sell.
Where my boys in black at?
>>76079153never seen a color version
>>76079093I'm actually hard-pressed to think of a campaign the tau have actually lost.They only ever job in art, but fluffwise they usually have pretty thick plot armor.Canonically I can't think of a reason various armored and air units within the astra militarum could not out mobilize them.
>>76079191they outsmarted the Hivemind lol
>>76079224does that mean they can't out mobilize them or that they have thick plot armor?
anyone have experience with buying from warpfire minis?
