Remember when the Silent King came back and then did nothing?
>>82993079>What does your Family think of your hobby?My Dad thinks it will help me boost my self esteem and get me through the depression a therapist diagnosed me with.My sister doesn't seem to care.Mom is kill. I bought miniatures, primer and paint in hopes to recapture the joyful times I had as a child playing with Legos but in a more mature form.hold me
>>82993097Reposting this because its an interesting question
>>82993079>TQMom doesn't care, dad thinks CSM and Orks look badass.
>>82993079>TQMy family thinks model kits are cool one of those things everyone kinda likes, My mom in particular used to play 2e D&D and loves going to the LGS with me
Would you join a Genestealer Cult irl assuming you didn't know how it all ends but knowing your offspring will be a mutant? Everything else is like in 40k - breeding and praising the star gods.
Whats with file sizes for the 9th codicies? Ksons is kike 20mb most ithers are around 50mb with necrons and dg being over 100mb
>>82993079>Thread Question: What does your Family think of your hobby?They're okay with it. My Dad actually brought me a White Dwarf mag as a kid because he knew I was into fantasy stuff and thats what got me into this, my Mother likes looking at them once painted but doesn't really care, my fiancee thinks they're neat and helps me with colour schemes sometimes.
>>82993135I'm not a cuck, no.
>>82993114Will this work if i played with bionicles instead of general purpose legos
>>82993135Probably not but the thing is you get hypnotized anyways so mutant offspring wouldn't actually bother you.
>>82993114>30 y/o boomer>got Legos for Christmas because reasons>it's still fun
Got throoded.>>82993031Can you remind me how 5th edition changed the LoS rules from 4th edition? I was a kid then and we didnt really read the rulebooks until there was an argument that forced us to. I know by 7th edition the rules for area terrain were entirely gone because GW wanted to sell you terrain kits.
>>82993135How do the genestealer cultists respond/react to when their "gods" arrive on the world they conquered and begin eating them all?And what is with the sudden uptick in genestealer players? Are they legitimately fun to play? Meta? I know their models are pretty nice especially the armored car and rock grinder, but that can't be it, right?
Is this worth $9? Will it help me paint better?
>>82993162>How do the genestealer cultists respond/react to when their "gods" arrive on the world they conquered and begin eating them all?Horror.>And what is with the sudden uptick in genestealer players?New codex.
Which scheme do I go for?
>>82993164Yes, but you'll need the stick as well.
>>82993079>Thread Question: What does your Family think of your hobby?My Mom got me into Warhammer and played with me when I was a kid. I miss her. My dad was an abusive alcoholic who got his when I grew up and bothered us no longer so no idea. My sister is a vain bitch so warhammer are toys to her.
>>82993164Not really, 3-holders is really just for beginners, you need at least a 6 holder, preferably 8 holder, don't go 12 though, that's taking it too far.
>>82993162>sudden uptick in genestealer playersNew codex but most are no models and like the coom art. I think GSC are cool but I refuse to play them due to the 120 model on the table thing.
I need announcements for chaos, I can't keep up my patience much longer
>>82993079My mother thinks its cool because she likes painting. My dad thinks it's gay nerd shit but kind of likes it because he likes historicals. No other family
Post your dudes, dudes.
>>82993162>How do the genestealer cultists respond/react to when their "gods" arrive on the world they conquered and begin eating them all?It varies. Some embrace death, some go mad with despair, some join the hive fleet in captured starcrafts, and some reject their fate and fight back. >And what is with the sudden uptick in genestealer players?New Codex. Plus GSC are very fun.
>>82993120Dropped size values for models and terrain and the general concept of abstracted area terrain and moved to "true line of sight." TLOS is fairly unpopular since they have a huge disadvantage in that terrain that isn't giant solid walls is often fairly worthless for actual gameplay. This kind of terrain often looks bad and most people's terrain collections, including nearly all terrain sold by GW aren't giant solid walls.
Imagine playing as Ravens. The Marines all look goofy goth as fuck.
>>82993079dad likes building model kit and sis got me into anime and gundam, mom likes that i have a hobby.
>>82993219Space Marine Tau Converts.
>>82993219I want to shake this box.
>>82993225>emo core space marine
>>82993113He made the setting slightly worse
>>82993219Paint them, you bastard.
>>82993225The only valid Space Marine choice is Alpha Legion, that's why Alpha Legion can effectively be any Space Marine army and Imperial Guard and Genestealer Cults too.
>>82993164Not really. Just exercise caution when working with Citadel's paint pots or transfer them to droppers. That way you hopefully won't become another spilled nuln oil meme unless that is somehow a right of passage in hobbying. I slowly open my Citadel paint pots like they are going to explode like a shaken soda can. I know it seems silly, but I don't want to waste paint.
>>82993225Sorry you have shit taste.
>>82993266That anon wanted to believe in the Silent King controls the Tyranids theory.
>>82993247Unpainted models have a natural charm.
>>82993079My parents don't know I play 40k since I picked it up well after I moved out.My wife always wants me to show her my finished models whenever I'm done painting one.
>>82993219So that's what a whole company of space marines looks like.
>>82993201I'm not the greatest painter by any means but I'm happy with these lads.
>>82993135>>82993162>respond/reactDepends. Some never meet the nids and just light a beacon and fuck off. Most ship off Purestrains and personnel ahead of time
Lore wise which individuals among the armiess have the most autonomy
Based or cringe?
>>82993225Head 4 looks fine. The rest are ehhhh
>>82993300AdMech L O L
>>82993219wow absolute basedkingchad
>>82993159Mostly answered here >>82993222But the main thing is 4th had terrain mechanics that worked similar to how area terrain with the obscuring tag works now in 9th. 5th-8th lacked this and it mean terrain was much, much easier to shoot through.
>>82993303>mute his video>read his first slide>close videohe's good as a centralized news hub at least
>>82993303Based. Good show to watch to keep your head in the 40k game on a tight schedule.
sisters i got one
>>82993303Based. Isn't interested in being an Eceleb, just does content.
>>82993300Necron Phaerons answer to exactly one being. That being can order them to do anything, including forget that they had been issued orders, but besides that they have total authority over their underlings.Ork Bosses can do anything they can physically do.
>>82993303Eh. Useless for tactics and opinions. Handy as a reference for rumors.
Any ideas for making factions more Sci-Fi themed? I like these bubble helmets for marines and I'm a fan of cosmic Eldar paint jobs.
>>82993300Inquisitor rules exist, so you tell me.
Do chaos marines still give a shit about their legion number? Do they still decorate their armor with it?
>>82993303Basically just a text to speech generator for warhammer community and the more solidly leaked content.
>>82993222Don't worry they'll replace TLOS with False LOS in 10th edition
>>82993389Nope. They usually have the symbol of their legion or warband instead
>>82993389Generally the legion number is associated with the emperor so they aren't to keen on keeping the designation they were assigned.
Playing a 2k game on sunday, Probably just open war card missions. I think im gonna run orks. Told me not to tell him my list/army. His armies are knights, necrons and BA. My plan was a half n half dread whaag/boys. Havent played orks in 9th yet. New strats look ass andBoys look like ass, but I dont care. Goffsghazmakribig mek kffnobs -big choppa/choppa30 boys - slugga/choppa30 boys - slugga/choppa10 grots9 dreads with the claw/big shoota load out6 kans with rocketsIm thinking about subbing the nobs for a weird boy and back fill points with more grots. I like ghaz and being able to call both whaags seems fun. But somthing kind of dosnt sit right with me about not knowing what army hes bringing. But I think this is the best i can do for an all comers list. Thoughts/suggestions?
>>82993344Unhand the child, bitch.
>>82993079Which Sept are my Tau bros going with? if you don't go FSE, you're an Ethereal cocksucker>Dal'yth Infantry gain Light Cover unless they are in Engagement Range. Auxiliaries can use Montka and Kauyon>Bork'an+4" range to all guns. Ranged attacks of S7 or lower against Tau Vehicles or Battlesuits get -1S>Vior'la +2" move when wholly within your Deployment Zone on turn 1. Re-roll Advance and Charge rolls>T'auRe-roll one hit or wound roll while attacking. Auras and Command Abilities gain +3" range>Farsight Enclaves FSE units always count as having a Markerlight buff (+1 to hit) while at range <12". Re-roll one wound roll while attacking>Sa'ceaSa'cea units gain cover when attacked at range >18"; Vehicles gain Dense Cover, Infantry gain Light Cover. Vehicles and Battlesuits have no penalty for shooting at targets that are in Engagement Range of them
>>82993296paints a little thick but really good color schemes
>>829934079th mostly doesn't use TLOS. I'm just talking historically.
>>82993201>that bionic legI don't remember seeing that. Is it third party? Nice miniatures. I've seen you a couple of times. Keep up the good work there, anon!
>>82993344Style its hair in the classic bob and put it through the Schola. See how long until they notice.They probably won't. Seeing the ork they let through there.
>>82993422Really interested in seeing how many units actually want that reroll charge rolls from Vior'la, probably going with Dal'yth for my kroot and vespid though
>>82993326>>82993300Being a magos explorator must me peak comfy if you ignore the risk of death (but then again, warhammer comes coated with 'risk of death' in every corner so...)>Hear a rumor about someone, somewhere, somehow finding a odd looking piece of metal>Get ready for adventure of 1000 years in the universe with your band of skitarii bois finding such piece of metal>ultimate /out/ experience. >maybe find piece of metal that you were searching: glory to the machine!>maybe not: Must search harder!>still made a bunch of frens along the way and got to ride a dunecrawler with the hatch open 10/10 would do it again.
Do Eldar use bionics at all? What happens if they lose an arm or whatever?
>>82993441They'll probably notice it manifest psychic powers before anything else. I hear the schola are pretty paranoid about that sort of thing
>>82993443Yeah I can understand the advance re-roll but not the charge
>>82993201Our numbers grow.
can damage reduction be stacked? I feel like its doesnt but I cant think of any reason why it wouldnt (dark angel pennant of remembrance relic + inexorable warlord trait)
>>82993453>Do Eldar use bionics at all?Yeah.>What happens if they lose an arm or whatever?Just grow a new one.
>>82993389Iron Warriors, Emperor's Children, Word Barers, and Death Guard probably would care, about identifying themselves as part of a Legion, Night Lords might care now that Decimus is in charge, and armor of midnight is kind of their thing, but Night Lords are also ultra-renegade so they might not. As far as I see it, Night Lords just wear midnight plates, and trim them in whatever metalic they want to signify their warband.There's basically two different kinds of Chaos Marine, Legionaries and Renegades. The more or less intact Legions that have some semblence of a chain of command and supply lines, are gonna care. Renegade Warbands probably don't give a single shit, cause if you're an astartes, and you have gear, that's good enough for them.
>>82993433>Is it third party? Yes, that whole torso is from kromlech.>Nice miniatures. Thanks anon!
>>82993201Those are cool marines. I'm TTS only but I want to learn some blender/3d to potentially customize my TTS stuff since I have a pretty consistent army list, at least enough that it'd be worthwhile to make some custom colors and maybe some baubles for a tank commander or two, etc. Double down on the theme of the world my guard are mustered from, that kinda thing.
If you could have one piece of 40k tech from any race today, what would it be?
>>82993079>TQNone of my family like my hobbies, but they've come to accept it as the results of their horrendous parenting. I have deep seeded issues and i drowned them with miniatures. After i realized it I've toned down getting more as i don't need it as an emotional crutch. I still need to sell my old shit, it's taking up a fair amount of space.
>>82993137Depends on the quality of the scan.
>>82993471Why not actually take part in the hobby instead?
>Thread Question: What does your Family think of your hobby?My dad plays and my wife thinks it’s nerdy, other than that it’s all good.
>>82993455>psychic powersYou misspelled "miracle powers"
>>82993453Dark Eldar have Haemonculi to handle it either with replacements or augmentations. CWE I think use wraithbone prosthetics. But I don't have a citation for that.
>>82993471Check out arimus 3d
>>82993330Cool thanks, I couldnt actually remember when area terrain disappeared from the ruleset. I just remember by 7th you chould line up shots through 9 windows and no one would bat an eye.
>>82993473Do I get to be capable of using it too? Cause then I'll take a psytronome shaper please
>>82993296I would say hit that blank underarmour with a semi satin varnish to bring them into alignment with your shiny metalics.
>>82993473i'll be honest anon, this is probably one of the most difficult questions ive ever seen asked, regarding the lore, in these threads. i am not sure what it could be, but I would absolutely want something that can be used to create other things infinitely. I would say something like an STC. But as to what kind, I'm not sure.
>>82993473Like me personally or the world at large? Because lasgun energy packs solve the entire world's energy problems and are essentially magic.For me personally it would be access to juvenat treatments.
>>82993344It's for you.
>>829934801) I don't live somewhere with many people to play with2) I'm poor3) I move around a bunch so collecting stuff is inconvenient4) I don't really like owning lots of stuff5) I play with friends and my brother and whatnot a bunch via TTS (we all live in various places) so it would be cool to have my customized stuff to play with them6) I'm not interested in learning to paint7) The actual wargame (which is what I'm most interested in, though I do read a decent amount of BL stuff when it's decent) plays better on TTS than it would IRL. Especially for Guard where you can batch move, auto measure and mass dice roll.
>>82993490I will, thanks.
>>82993518Just try it, xenos filth.
>>82993529Is that howling bitch using two power swords?
>>82993135If the cult allows monogamy, sure. I'm not sharing my breeder.
>>82993473A pleasure servitor.
>>82993175Everyone knows green iz bestSo don't put it on tau
>>82993536Nah life just kinda worked out that way. I like moving to new places. I'm settling into remote work where I can live anywhere. Boutta be less poor which will be nice but even then. It just doesn't really make sense for my life. I've also got a bunch of other hobbies that take my time that I wouldn't want to give up for what would be, to me personally, prep time for the thing I do want. Ie: I want to play the game, not paint a ton of models.Learning a bit of 3d art is something that I can take as much time as I want with, and when I have a result, I add it to my army, but, it isn't really necessary to play. Whereas assembling, storing, and travelling to playing spaces, let alone painting, are all "unfortunate time sinks between me and playing a game of 40k" that I prefer to avoid.

That survey says there are lots of iron autist players here. REVEAL YOURSELVES!

Does she post here?
>>82993598Can you stop posting your waifu no-one gives a shit
>>82993598there's never been a single woman in this general
>>82993079I want some Wyches. Should I get the new ones, the old ones, or should I find a stand in for the models?
>>82993162One of the few creative things of the original 40k.Also pretty fun. Currently they might as well be another xeno race with how much of a cunt they are to run with nids
>>82993605Except sweet sweet suggy.
>>82993608Use the hottest stand ins you can find i want eye candy on the board
>>82993612Anon meant "consider paying another person to build and paint miniatures for you".
>>82993605depends on whether you count women with big meaty cocks
Hey, long shot here. Does anyone have the pic of a shirtless tau male in a hat with a loincloth?
>>82993488>But I don't have a citation for that.Second book of Solar Macharius dilogy (the one which is about the ship)
>>82993624Kek, will do. Any suggestions?
>>82993453Their limbs grow back naturally. They don't need prosthetics.
>>82993605I was about to say DLFG but I think she predates generals.
>>82993419Why are your models in a fridge?
>>82993658Why are yours not?
>>82993570I mean maybe. I'm planning to move back to the UK to live with my girlfriend who had to go there for school, and she's sorta dropping hints that I should consider getting into it. I think she wants to try painting 'em and going and hanging out places. I'm not convinced though. We'll see how I feel when Custodes hits Battlescribe as I wanna try them out. Tired of getting plowed game after game as Guard to be honest so thinking I might try out Solar Watch Bike Spam whilst I'm in guard codex waiting room. If I like playing them, I might consider it just because they're relatively cheap and probably simple to paint.
>>82993658They like the chill. Keeps them frosty just before a fight.

>>82993699So a webdev?
>>82993618Working in some leafy bases. Mostly a test, planning to add the same idea to my boring mud bases. Also going to glue the spare torsos to the bases and make some extra bodies as "trap doors"
>>82993723I was planning to just hand my girlfriend a brush and a big vat of gold paint and hope for the best, if I did get into it.>>82993726No more on the business side. Handling the post-intro sales stuff ie: demos, implementation stuff, making sure everything goes smoothly, and making sure they have all the training/materials they need, etc. Then I'll also be helping with customer support at the start but eventually I'll mostly be managing this stuff rather than doing it myself but at the start you gotta be more hands on to save cash.
>>82993597Why not just print screen, convert to pdf, and print out for you opponent?

>>82993730My intention is not to insult you but it looks like a dried up shit smear on a base.

This is big dick, every new faction has custom rules. CSM getting that level of customization, with a range as wide as it is, is fucking sick>Dropping DTTFE for +1 attack, I think this is good and will result in more fun gameplay, but I'm sad my Abaddon wombo combos go so soon after I got got themI have a very good feeling about the codex. I hope it's good, and that my collection is gonna be solid. My only fear is weapon restrictions on various elites, but I feel like CSM are more similar to Marines than the Cult Legions, in that CSM are a kitchen sink book and need the customization to support so many Legions, whereas the Cult Legions are very specialized and each unit already fills the intended role at a baseline level. Marines have Termies and Veterans that can take whatever they want, so I hope that CSM follow in the same vein, otherwise most of my WYSIWYG Terminators are fucked.
>>82993763i really want them to reprint it, along with Titanicus and Dead Men Walking. i wish GW did print on demand

Ahhhhhh!!! Custodes codex scans fucking when?!?!?
>>82993829I'd kill for custom warband rules.
>>82993869guess I'll just paint them one at a time until i become an expert
>>82993864Out of curiosity I just checked and the cheapest one is $130, what in the fuck?!
>>82993881it's out of print, that instantly adds $100 to the asking price
>>82993796Cool now i know how to make shit? No idea why it looks so brown in the image
>>82993882>>82993882May as well juat read about alexanders campaigns
>>82993865I was always a fireknife man back in the day, but these days we need to think more agressively to get the objective done. Maybe a heatwave suit with added burst cannon for clearing the way
>>82993882Fucking retarded. When I bought it they were asking about 75-100 a couple years back. But the guy I bought it from had it listed for a few weeks and I finally made an offer.
>>82993473all day every day
>>82993730You gonna paint those leaves son? At tabletop distance that's just gonna look like dirt
>knights occupy normal battlefield roles>not by models, but by pilot>pilot has a modifier to the knight it pilots points, and positive or negative abilitiesGod why isn't this in 40k?
>>82993870>points out obvious jokes as 'autism'
>>82993871There is one. That said, what I really want is battlescribe/waha s I can get the stuff conveniently.
>>82993876I hope there's solid support for every archtype in the book. I'm really excited to see how the codex shakes down, because this is the second biggest codex in the game.
>>82993920Actually that was the original plan some dirty leafy muddy jungle thing.It is just dry Corandier with a brown washWill try Oregano and maybe a mix of both just to break up the flatness of it
>>82993225ah personality the one weakness of the Space Marine player
>>82993829All the rules and most loadout options are going to change retard.
>>82993596Every survey reveals this place bats for the iron autists (not the irrelevant ones). More surprising is all the DAngles. That and all the Tau.All the dislike of Chaos is also pretty funny
>>82993817Seconding this because I want FSE to not look like a dark red blob on the table.
>>82994026Lighter red with a bone white seems pretty good. Reminiscent of hive fleet kraken
I'm looking for a texture paint similar to pic related, but more grey. Trying to capture a vibe of a colorless wasteland constantly waterlogged by the waning and surging ocean tide. Any ideas lads?
any ideas how to paint some incubi in a clowny way to make them fit into a harlequin army, without making them too Tim Burton-y?
>>82994082You could try using that and hitting it with a layer of basilicanum grey contrast?
>>82994082Vallejo Ground Texture in the appropriate colour, with extra 0.5mm and 1mm sand/gravel/ballast added in.
I finally gathered the fucking energy and motivation to paint these. Just trying to do the standard Black Heart scheme. Hopefully it works out. I have no faith in edge highlighting these with any amount of accuracy but it's nice to finally get some paint on my boys.
>>82993817Color equivalents of metals. E.g. Grey, white, yellow. Olive green. Tans and browns.
>>82994096I don't know
>>82994153Yeah I know the fast method. I did it a while ago and it's probably what I'm going to do now. To say I have a lot of Dark Eldar to paint is putting it lightly. They're my biggest army by far so I'm not going to take hours to highlight each one to perfection. It's going to be drybrushing Kabalite Green over the armor and callling it good.
>>82993201Building up my Indomitus half while waiting for paints to arrive. Here are some assault Intercessors converted into regular Intercessors. I think I like these poses better than the norma ones.
>>82994123Is that stegadon scale green, by chance? I've been looking to get a nice dark teal color to use and was probably going to grab sotek green
>>82994123You can just dry brush them. They're troops, don't spend hours trying to edge highlight all that shit.
what lighting do you guys use? i cant see my fucking MODELS while im painting them
>>82994096Use some of the same bright colors used on your Clowns. But block out the colors on the armor in a more standard way. Rather than painting them quartered or motley.
>>82994170imagine being this weak
>>82994189I think you need a lamp, anon.Especially the kind that casts a white light instead of the usual yellowish light bulb light.
>>82993458These are beautifully painted (not my preferred style but the technique is fantastic) and the aesthetics are wild, I dig it. What’s your /dudes/ deal?
>>82994205i feel like this went entirely without saying. do you have a particular one that you'd recommend? i like the ones that clamp onto desk and are double articulated
>>82994169It's incubi darkness. I have sotek green I think but it's more blue. I can dig it out and show you if you want.
>>82994105You think the "wet" bits of the texture wouldn't get obscured by the paint?>>82994169Sotek's got some pretty high value. Stegadons probably your best bet.
>>82994205some dude here recommended a lamp from amazon which has worked nicely for me (ottlite, some chinese shit).
>>82994189Ottlite. Super bright, super color neutral table and floor lamps sold for use in sewing. My Mom is a seamstress and she recommended them to me. Works extremely well.
>>82994195that doesnt look bad. luckily the box comes with an extra head, so i can experiment with colorful horns too
>>82994216>i like the ones that clamp onto deskI have a lamp that looks very much like pic-related and might even be the same model.It just works, but what is really important is that you get a lightbulb that casts a white light.
>>82994203>>82994262post your troops
>>82994238Seconding the Ottlite.
>>82994238>>82994278itll be here on tuesday. thanks lads
>>82993303I fucking hate the cadence of his speech. If 40K is supposedly a beloved hobby of yours, a passion having lasted years, and you choose to make videos, don't talk about it in the same enthusiasm that one would do discussing tax paying tactics. I have to put his videos on 1.25 speed or else risk falling asleep as if it were Warhammer ASMR. However the community would be undoubtedly be shittier without him and his content. Though I don't like the low effort slideshow, there'd be no better way for someone to put out so much news so quickly, and most fags in the hobby are looking down at their plastic painting as they have his videos play anyway. The channel is a good thing overall.
>>82994297the only thing that i dont like about him is that the dude defies all fucking logic. He looks absolutely nothing like he sounds. he's like paki or some shit
>painted base rim black>forgot a purity seal that was still base color
>>82994297I'd much rather have his droning than the average american's fake over-enthusiasm
Always remember that anyone who makes youtube videos about warhammer deserves to have a termite infestation in their home.
>>82994297Would you prefer Valrak tier EYUP lads its AUSPEX TACTICS HERE again with another GLORIOUS preview!! And by the HOLY LIGHT OF TERRA BROTHERS, we've got another Tau LEAK to talk about!!!!
>NO YOU CAN'T HAVE PRETTY SOB>IMPERIALS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE UGLY CYBORGS AND MUTANTS WHO SEE PHYSICAL BEAUTY AS HERESY>NOOOO
>>82994355Blood for the blood godSkulls for the skull throneCum for the cum jar
I really hope we get to see the new imperial guard psyker soon
>>82994355>botched lipjobAdmittedly better than gw, but cmon.
>>82994355To be fair, I kind of agree. Only Eldar should be gorgeous. Imperials should mostly be disfigured because they sacrifice everything for the Emperor. Making yourself beautiful is vain (heretical because you love yourself when the only thing you should love is the Emperor) and what's worse, a distraction for yourself and others.
>>82994323Better throw it out and start again
>>82994385I believe in myself that believes in the emperor
>>82994219Yeah, sure!>>82994225I've noticed that, though mixing dark green or black into soteks easy enough to do
>>82994360Because they're doing evil and the precise level of evil they're doing is properly punished via termite infestation.
>>82994385Nah SoB are just a Battle Harem like Gaddafis Amazonian guard
>>82994385While many Imperials view loving yourself or fellow humans as equivalent to cheating on the Emperor, I'm not sure how widespread it is considering how lawless the Imperium is. Certainly among slaves they'd take the stand that sex = pregnancy = bad, but I can't imagine gangers not being like low tech DEldar.
>>82994385This is how my Sisters' fluff works. They're obsessed with the purity of humanity as the Emperor intended it, and don't go for any modification to their bodies - no tattoos, no ritual scarification, not even hair dye or makeup.Naturally they consider both the Admech abd the Marines potential heretics at best and only barely tolerate them.
Got the Genestealer Cults Start Collecting box and a Kelermorph for my birthday recently, and decided to split Shadow Throne with a friend.What do you think would be my next step toward making a reasonably sized army? Say 1000 points or so?Also, Metamorphs or Acolytes?
>>82993114It gets better Fren. You gotta make the sacrifice.
>>82994385>implying the sisters aren't making themselves look nice for the Emperor
>>82994432All true except for>not even hair dye or makeup.They definitely do put on makeup, perfume, and other beauty products, but only before going into battle. If they're going to die, they want to look glamorous. Out of battle, they look like grimdark catholic nuns. Also, they canonically do dye their hair to imitate patron saints and for uniformity.
>>82994385holy fucking grimderp
>>82994450That Start Collecting was fucking brilliant for repeat purchases, but it's obviously something that will be phased out once the Combat Patrol comes. Though it can be argued that the Combat Patrol ain't something to sneeze at if 50% savings are to be believed. Gonna need alot of dudes so alot of dudes is what you'll get.I don't know what's optimal between those two, anon. I know the least about their army, except that the bikers are based as hell. I don't care if they're dogshit on the board, they look fun as hell. I would probably field them alongside Tyranids too even though mixed armies are weaker. Don't listen to me.
>>82994468>>82994432Thought the fleur de lys they like to wear on their cheeks was a tatoo.
>>82994450Another start collecting and maybe another ten neosAlso, acolytes over metamorphs
>>82994450Pick a cult creed you'd like to build for. You can always use more acolytes for practically anything. Twisted Helix is looking especially juicy for melee GSC, and don't forget that Purestrain Genestealers are officially pretty good now, so check them out too.
>>82994468He's talking about his girls. Not SoB in general. Because ritual scars are absolutely a Valorous Heart thing. And of course Wounded Heart go to the now infamous extreme of degloving.
>>82993422My decals on my 3rd edition models are Sa'cea.BFG Armada had my paint scheme as Dal'ythMy dark purple sept color matches Elsy'eir.I'm kind of tempted to run Yo'vai with Bork'an but hate light brown. Sa'cea is decent. Might run Elsy'eir with the minor sept trait that gives Battlesuits ObSec.
>>82994382Looks like she's licking her lips.
>>82994325>>82994349That shit instantly makes me never want to watch someone's content ever again, but there's gotta be a middle ground where you don't have to beg and pester me to AYOOO DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE AND EXTERMINATUS THAT LIKE BUTTON :DD and delivering your content dispassionately. Put some heart in it is all I ask. It's probably an autistic thing to dwell on though because admittedly how excited do you have to be to read a community post out loud I guess?
>>82994468>>82994489I was talking about my Sisters specifically. I gave them varied hair colors to make them stand out from each other a bit.>>82994450I would get the Combat Patrol when it comes out because it's such insane value.Also, Acolytes are my recommendation just because they count as Troops. Thing is, there isnt really a bad unit in the codex.
>>82993598Obession with celebs and especially e-celebs is a sign of low intelligence.
>>82994508>And of course Wounded Heart go to the now infamous extreme of degloving.Do I dare ask
>>82994478Fuck yeah dude, the Jackals are sick. I'm definitely gonna be picking some of them up down the line.I'm pretty sure my local GW still has some SC boxes on the shelves, but I kinda feel like waiting until I'm done with what I've got before committing to more. Although with them going out of stock, it does put the time pressure on me somewhat.>>82994497So would you say a safe bet is to pick another Start Collecting before they're gone, and then when I'm done painting up all that stuff, pick up a Combat Patrol?>>82994506Probably going to go for Rusted Claw, they seem cool mechanics wise and I love stuff that gives me extra movement and other shenanigans like that.I've thought about picking up Purestrains too, however the current models seem a bit dated. Do you know if that's the case or is it just the paintjob GW advertises them with?>>82994521I'm definitely gonna pick one up, the Rockgrinder is sick and 20 more Neophytes seems like a solid investment.
>>82994521May I see them?
>>82994531There's a minor Sister order who strip the skin off one of their hands before battle as a religious rite.Yes this is stupid and horrifying. Yes that's the point.>>82994538Purestrain models are close to 15 years old.
Any Tyranid players in the thread?
>>82994544I'm not really happy with any of my face paint jobs(planning to redo them all) but here's some of my favorite models.
>>82994432What do they think about Custodes? Considering they are supposed to be Big E's "perfect" human and the future of humanity?
>>82994571They're on the far end of the galaxy and have never seen a single Custode in person. Only aware of them at all as the Emperor's guards, but they don't have any specifics.
>>82994571>>82994584Does really anyone in the Imperium really know of Custodes? I get that many Space Marine chapters might
>>82994564I dislike to bring people down when it comes to painting and such but holy shit anon, this is a seriously atrocious paint scheme.
>>82994571I like them more than Grey Knights, because holy shit Grey Knights are grimderp.
>>82994591I have 6 mines, 6 genestealers, and 10 gaunts with the rifles. What boxes can I pick up to make a passable 500 pt combat patrol using these lads?
>>82993422I'm a Farsight Enjoyer and will continue to be one. Sucks losing the Fusion Blades but Fusion Blasters being overpriced as fuck on Commanders (beyond one) and huge buff to the Gauntlet means it's okay since I only really use one Commander besides Farsight himself anyway. Just going to change his loadout a little and use him to buff a blob of Strikes as they push forward (or Advance backwards) around the board.Here's to hoping FSE gets some love with the supplement/DLC book. I'd love to get a Veteran Cadre back especially but it's not the end of the world to not have it for now. It's balanced out by the FSE trait being better, Farsight himself is much stronger and has more buffs. Just looking at it, his buff to a nearby team pretty much make up for losing Veteran Cadre as it is and doesn't cost any CP.
>>82994606Ah, can't help you there. Getting some more Genestealers and a Broodlord seems like a good start.
>>82994521I think Metamorphs are bad. Fight after death has them barely hanging on by their nails as having a weird "yea ok sure" niche, but otherwise Purestrains fucking shit all over them. They needed to be D2 to have a real purpose.
>>82994584Sure but what would they think if they knew what they are exactly? What would they think about Custodes if they saw them but knew nothing? Memes aside, Custodes are quite different from Marines lore wise.
>>82994597>Does really anyone in the Imperium really know of Custodes? I get that many Space Marine chapters mightThe galaxy is big so most probably don't know. Those that are in contact with marines should since Custodes are in charge of bringing Primaris to various chapters (So those chapters wont refuse)
>>82994478All the combat patrols have been $140. If the model count is true, the GSC combat patrol is a savings of $127.Meanwhile the Tau Combat Patrol is a savings of 70 dollars, 20 dollars if you already have an ethereal and fireblade (Unless they give us a Lieutenant rule to run multi fireblades.)They should have dropped the ethereal and thrown in another squad.
>>82994640>Since Custodes are in charge of bringing Primaris to varius chapters (So those chapters wont refuse)Holy fuck. Sauce? I want to read this so bad. Please tell me that some knuckleheaded 1st company captain retard from some shit-for-brains successor chapter tried to say no
>>82993303I mute him and hit the chapter tags to read his slides.
>>82994617Seems like Purestrains and Aberrants do the most work in various battle reports I watched. Also basic Neophytes with big guns.
>>82994650Wrong, everyone needs even more fucking ethereals because we didn't have enough of them from the SC boxes
>>82994650IThe Death Guard combat patrol is at least $180
I NEED A MELEE PRIMARIS DREAD JAMESWHERE THE FUCK IS IT
>>82994514That's the comfortable spot I think Oculus Imperia is in
>>82994617>I think Metamorphs are badThey suffer from being a unit that'd be good in another army. They're not even bad at their cost or for their options, it's just that there's a cheaper and slightly weaker option in Troops and a more specialised, faster and tougher option in Purestrains. Purestrains are fucking amazing now, it's just that simple. Purestrains just can't compete with such a fast, killy, fairly durable unit that's dirt cheap. Metamorphs aren't even bad, it's just they're not as good as them and compete with them.
fuck i just found out about contrast paints after spending like $100 on normie paint
>>82994631They consider the Marines to be the Emperor's greatest failure because they betrayed him.They'd probably consider Custodes to be what Marines should be. But again, they're deep in the Imperium Nihlus and will never run into Custodes.>>82994655Blood Ravens tried to say no.
>>82994671>Oculus ImperiaHe's the only lore youtuber I can enjoy. I like the gimmick of him speaking from inside the setting.
>>82994683>blood ravens tried to say nono!!!
>>82994655There's even rules in White Dwarf to run a crusade force of Custodes escorting greyshields to their chapter. Look up Warhammer 40k Torchbearers.Nothing about chapter masters refusing reinforcements, but there was some fluff where the Custodes slaughtered the marines because the chapter they were on the way to were declared renegade.
>>82994606Start collecting? It'll get you the broodlord and some genes to fill out the squad, along with a trygon to deep strike the gaunts with.
>>82994655https://www.warhammer-community.com/2020/04/20/psychic-awakening-consequences/It's not exactly that but a fun read.
>>82993923knights haven't been around long enough on that same topic marine vehicles should have perks for being driven by a tech marine as opposed to a normal marine or a serf/ servitor really all vehicles should have pilot traits
>>82994689Yeah, there was a story in a White Dwarf about it.
>>82994655>Please tell me that some knuckleheaded 1st company captain retard from some shit-for-brains successor chapter tried to say noGabriel Seth raged at Dante before it even happened and then treated what Primaris he got like shit for a long time but no, seeing as how there were like 50 Flesh Tearers left alive after Baal, he didn't do shit. Kinda disappointed he cucked.
>>82994664its coming with space marines 2.0 along with rocket launcher primaris
>>82993923Closest you've got is Tank Commanders and special characters that crew vehicles. I wish it was a more common thing myself but I think that's a reasonable way of doing it.
>>82994664Dunno , I keep hearing rumors about another wave of primaris. No idea when or if it will come to fruition. Rumors of a new dread and a missle launcher unit I guess.
>>82994514Afaik there is actually a huge difference between the engagement metrics for a video with and without the reminder to like/subscribe/share. More engagement means the video is more visible, which means more views and ultimately more money.It makes sense that people say that shit. Not saying it literally costs them revenue.
why did they just make a billion different primaris troops. they're literally worse than regular tactical marines in terms of logistics
>>82994663I mean pricewise. Deathguard box is $225 of models for $140 for a savings of $85. Average savings is $100, SoBs is $145 savings, Dark Angels $59 savings, Grey Knights and Thousand Sons are only $30 savings.
>>82994722Primaris will get waves till they fully replace manlets. They didn't listen. This is their fate.
>>82994725>why did girlyman spread out a legion of legion-styled marines with legion-style organisation (lieutenants, big squads of similarly equipped guys etc), tryna make his own personal imperium like he also did during the heresyI dunno Daveyyyyy
>>82994723>operating in the negative"not gaining" is not "loss". you dont think piracy or account-sharing streaming services is loss too, do you?
>>82994699>spikes on the part where you're meant to grab>means she has to grab the active power blade instead
>>82994740SoB one is only worth it if you buy 2. No, buying 2 is pretty much mandatory.
>>82993114My gf build lego sets for fun as a hobby and I set them up on my terrain once. She has fun with them. Yeah dude this hobby is all about escapism. >it actually does make you happy>ever finish a full army?>pride
>>82994749The "power" current is above the spikes.
>>82994749Anon, I hate to break it to you, but 40k is not particularly realistic. If you haven't notices she also has her view to the right heavily obstructed by ornamental shit stuck unto her clearly impractical pauldron,
>>82994655>Please tell me that some knuckleheaded 1st company captain retard from some shit-for-brains successor chapter tried to say noBrazzen Drakes. But turns out their primaris reinforcements were also brain-damaged
>>82994722Not heard the rumour but it's a fair assumption. There's been dribbles of new Primaris units like the BT ones and a couple of random characters which are just gear-swaps. I'm guessing it'll come with the launch of the 'seasonal' book so they can buff/nerf shit and then drive some new units in the wake of it.We're also near the end of all armies having a 9th edition codex and it's not a rumour but come on, you guys know what comes next, right? Chaos, Guardfags, Nids and Tau are getting their shit real soon. Give it a few months and the season will be out, DLC books will be out and more announced and bam...Space Marines 2.0 drops which covers all the more vanilla Chapters and saves making a bunch of supplements for them.
>>82994771>But turns out their primaris reinforcements were also brain-damagedThey were traitors in the end and would surely fall to chaos. The Shield Captain was autistic about this but he was actually right. They had no faith in the Emperor or the Imperium and were in it just for themselves.
>>82993079>Thread Question: What does your Family think of your hobby?Mom and dad are nerds and consider Warhammer a consequence of introducing me to D&D 3.5 when it was newWife thinks it's cool and likes painting with me.
>>82994772I can see space marine 2 letting everyone have the melta turret from the black templar sprue in the same way all the Sergent weapons from the other upgrade sprues can be used
>>82994725You've got shooty ones. Stabby ones. Advanced Deploy disruption ones. And Slightly more stabby advanced deploy ones. They all see use depending on the chapter involved and they're pretty much all better than tacticals.
>>82994772Primaris will have another wave when GW starts shitting out Chapter Supplements again.
>>82994725The troop slot should have probably just been tactical marines and intercessors, the spec ops marines and extra thick elite marines really feel out of place
>>82994725Remember that all primaris armor is the same armor just with different optional stuff added or removed.
>>82994799With seasons introduction I wonder how many books Space Marines players would need
what are some reading material/resources i should know before i get into painting figures?
>>82994799IDK about more supliments but for sure they are getting the new old gravis captain ancient. leaks say rocket launcher squads and a bigger fist redemptorintuition says other chapters will be able to use the black templar melta turret
>>82994725They just can't fit in rhinos man, we need a whole new vehicle lineup
>>82994744Lion and Russ cannot return soon enough
>>82994807learn about contrast paints. they're good stuff for beginners that want to play more than paint
>>82994800force org slots aren't realistic or anything they are purely what GW wants to see armies look like, thats why dire avengers and scouts lost troops
>>82993079>What does your family think of your hobbyMy dad got me into it when I saw his Tyranids on the shelf. The rest of the family feigns interest so there's something to talk to me about but aren't really into it. At least they aren't mean to us about it so that's something.
>>82994807I would suggest watching Duncan's "painting a space marine" video on Warhammer TV. Shows you all the essential techniques.https://youtu.be/_odi1c7ErCg
>>82990078What makes the Crisis suits so good though? Are they worth getting?
>>82994811>intuition says other chapters will be able to use the black templar melta turretNo way, they will make a new upgrade sprue with a new chapter specific upgrade you are expected to buy
>>82994828Chapter Master Vulvrak
>>82994740No, the Death Guard combat patrol is not legal, and cannot be used without another unit of Terminators or Plague Marines.
>>82994706There's a good White Dwarf short story about Seth's hazing of his Primaris. Bloodforged.
>>82994844Call him onions all you want, but his source has been mostly accurate so far
>>82994831Given he's complaining about "nu shit" his criteria are obviously more about aesthetics and his personal preferences.
>>82994820>thats why dire avengers and scouts lost troops>marine player makes an assumption without even codex leaks
>>82994847You can use two of the death guard combat patrol, but then you're stuck with two typhus which takes a bit of conversion to make into a lord of contagion with manreaper
>>82994862I'm not saying he is wrong, I just want to know about Crisis suits and if they are good or not and why. They seem neat, but what do they actually do in battle that a blob of fire warriors won't do?
>>82994843I forgot when but they let regular intercessors take the hand flammer, thunderhammer, powersword which only came from the chapter upgrade spruenow the assault intercessors come with them
>>82994831NTA, but durable bodies, decent movement, wide variety of weaponry.Also they're cool.
>>82994662>>82994650They don't want you to buy multiple combat patrols though, thats why they put these HQ's in the way they do. You MIGHT use multiple icon bearers, but you probably won't be using multiple combat patrol Magus' if you intend on buying the Brood Coven which also has another one
>>82994864the very accurate leaks have said dire avengers are going to be elites
>>82994831Good mobility, durability, and can be outfitted to deal with basically any target. Crisis suits are the cutting edge that you follow through with your fire warriors
>>82994866holy shit what a looker full homo
>>82994864>>82994886Last I heard Rangers were actually troops though.
>>82994895Typhus always reminds me of somebody but I can't put my finger on it
>>82993201Just finished a lot of putty work, need it to dry to do some more cleanup before I start tampering with detailings. Took a nice comparison picture.>>82994167I dig the pistol pose, imma steal that.
>>82994896yes they are troops
>>82994896They are troops. I think anon meant Space Marine Scouts, which have been pushed to Elites to make you buy more Primaris marines
>>82994564I think I was in the thread where this was posted and I remarked that it reminded me of the climax of that Helsreach novel. Thanks anon.
>>82994904tangentially related, what standard power armor marine kits come with terminator honors
>>82994904Nice job anon, I love seeing biggened Terminators. Post results when painted
shouldve bought up all the super dirt cheap phobos. they're all so fucking expensive now since they're getting turbo buffed to meet sales quotas
>>82994913Frankly I'm happy they did that. People never took tactical so marine armies were always mostly scouts.
>>82994928I have a few, gotta get enough mark 6 helmets for them though
>>82993079Can the Custodes Imperial Armor line get an faq to be compatible with the Kat’ahs they added in the new book?
>>82994928>turbo buffed to meet sales quotasAn Army of Reknown comes with significant restrictions. That's overstating things quite a bit.
>>82994895>It's totally not a sorcery just numerology
>>82993079>TQMy dad and I are trying to connect more, so I got him some paints for Christmas and took him to a FLGS to pick a model (he picked these Ad Mech). We painted them together, mine's on the left, his on the right.I learned that he actually used to build models as a kid before his family fell apart and they became dirt poor. He told me a story about how he built this model of the lunar module and brought it to the park to show his friends, but it got stolen. And so gradually, he started to hate people.
>>82994956On the one hand I'm glad you're connecting with your dad. On the other hand I've had plenty of valuable and/or personal hobby shit stolen and it never made me hate people.
>>82994297I watch all of his videos on 2x speed and honestly I still skip most of what he says since it still feels too slow and unenthusiastic
tf2 gmod engineer
>>82993422I'm really thinking between FSE(because I like FSE), Bork'an(due to ignore invuln strat) and Sa'cea due to lack of shooting penalty in melee. I'll probably switch around and see what works.
>>82994921I know the vanguard veterans kit does, it has a bunch of pauldrons with the markings. I dont know, but is the little cross pendant also terminator honor markings?>>82994925Thanks! I hope to paint this guy next, but I still gotta add some iconography to him.
>>82994989More like he has just learned never to trust people like he used to as a kid. He had a faulty assumption that people would be as honest as he was, and it cost him a lunar module model, a bike, and a baseball glove his coach bought for him.
>>82995045Ah, loss of innocence. Fair enough.
>>82994956thats awesome bro, when my brother and i were kids we never got along, but now that were older i figured we could find some common ground, so I got us the kill team box last year since I knew he had an interest in 40k but never decided to get into it. now we hang out a couple times a week to play or paint

>be autistic retard>finally mustered up the courage to go to the LGS and play>things going okay, sisters of battle vs tyranids>around the end of round 2 LGS owner interrupts and tells everyone he ordered a pizza and it just arrived>everyone leaves to get a slice, including my opponent>just sit there for like 20-30 minutes on my phone while they all eat pizza in the other room>opponent comes back finally>"oh uh, I forgot where we were at honestly ill just give you the win ok?">leave LGSdid he not like playing me? should I have joined them? I dont eat in front of other people but I would feel bad if I didnt take a slice.
>>82993079Mom left, estranged. Dad got killed. Wife thinks they look neat and is getting me a display case. She likes the fantasy stuff and got a couple herself, where she wants me to put them together and she'll try her hand at painting as well.
>>82995176Why didnt you join in on eating the pizza?Was he losing the game?
>>82995188>be autistic retard
>>82995188because eating gives me anxiety, especially in public. I didn't want to break into a panic attack at the LGSit seemed like he was winning, he had a lot of hive guard which killed my tanks right away
holy fuck pizza while painting sounds so good right now wish me luck bros
>>82993201working on a coldstar. I shame that there's no shas'el unit in the new codex.>>82993079my family likes that I have a constructive hobby. My Dad is a bore, but he doesn't have any hobbies, but my sisters are supportive. My brother and law plays too, but unfortunately he lives on the other side of the continent. otherwise we'd probably play every week.
>>82995176Probably should have gone with them to at least chat about tactics and stuff while they eat
>>82995176You should have gotten a slice, autist. Or if you didn't want one, just had a drink or hung out with them. Classic autist mistake.
>>82995176honestly kind of shitty of your opponent unless they ordered pizza before you started playing. But don't give up anon. Getting out and playing more games is only good for you.
>>82993296Damn, I really like the old farseer helm. Looks like Dream's helmet from Sandman series.
>>82995200Even if you don't eat you should still hangout with them to be part of the group. He probably didn't care about playing and came just to hang with his friends.
>>82995206Looks great honestly. I really like camo on Tau.
>>82994868Move fast and hit with specialized weapons
>>82995217yeah, probably should have got up and tried doing something with them. I basically only go to play the game though, I have no idea what to talk about besides warhammer when im there
>if you put a custodes on a hive world he would be the subject matter expert in over 100 different fields>simultaneously guaranteed to be the most powerful fighter on the planet
>>82995176I remember my first ever games of 40k and it was a local tournament. I went with 3 school friends and mid tournament they ordered a pizza. I was so focused on the game since it was my first time and they made me choose what pizza I want. Then when the pizza came I was so focused I was not hungry but because I didn't want to disappoint them I ate my share of the pizza. They kept coming to me to check if I'm eating. It was a good memory but I remember being overwhelmed, nervous and pizza was the last thing on my mind.
>>82995250Listen and adapt, flatter them to score good boy points.
>>82994868>What do crisis suits doThey can drop in from a flank to hit elite infantry/vehicles or light infantry from a more exposed position. They can force your opponent to focus on screening to protect against the deep strike instead of just flooding forward. They carry heavier firepower to deal with tougher targets. They can be tooled out to deal with any shortcomings your army may have.
>usps says my shit has arrived>it actually arrives like 3 days laterwhy are they doing this
>>82995252That's what being peak human feels like.
>>82995250without insulting anyone or their beliefs, ideals, or opinions, or otherwise being rude, be brutally honest and austically straightforward about everything. works in my reality.
Well, this took way longer than I expected to spend this afternoon. I had to scrap the first version of the PDF and re-process my raw scans.Fair warning, the first two and last two pages are from photos rather than a scanner. The flatbed scanner I bought specifically for this scanning job was giving absolute junk, so I went back to my ADF scanner which can't process anything thicker than regular paper.The OCR on this isn't great, it pulled a few false positives in the artwork, but it should be sufficient for text search.It's 78 MB, with the scanned images at a final resolution of 1620px width in 144 DPI. Bookmark tree and basic OCR have been applied as well:> https://mega.nz/file/dHoxnCzb#4G4oE8ikyC-rLIbY-PLtijdb27MWcE5hmyqe_70uAusIf you guys have any trouble with the PDF, please let me know. I double check my scans in Adobe Reader as a baseline, but I do try to put out scans that function well in multiple readers.
>>82995176It's such a small thing that it ain't worth being overly fixated about. Probably didn't make any negative impression at all. May have been better to at least mingle for even a moment even if you didn't care to chow down.I'd give the environment another go just to feel it out. I believe in you CandyAss.
>>82995268happened to me recently also, I think the usps drivers scan as delivered so they dont get in trouble with their bosses over weather or other complications fucking them over. I'm usually not in a rush to get my items so it's understandable but also annoying when I go to check my post office like 3 days in a row and its not fucking there
thanks pdf anon
would A look cool, or should I stick with B? maybe if I blacken the tips of the horns on A?
>>82995321I subscribed to Warhammer+ with the intent of sharing all the content until I realized that there was nothing worth sharing.Anons like you that ACTUALLY contribute are doing God's work.
>>82995321Thank you very much. not a custodes player, but I appreciate the work that you do.
>>82995328Yeah, I'm not in any rush either, just don't want to worry about my shit being lost.
>>82995321holy actually fucking based
>>82995321could you upload page 15(pdf page)individually I really like the art
>>82995321based as hell, thank you friendnice quality scan tooluckily the combat patrol has a bunch of sisters in it otherwise I'd be tempted to start another army
>>82995321I'll name my firstborn son after you.
>>82995285being 'brutally honest' is rude, especially if you end up talking about the beliefs, ideals, and opinions modern retards havePeople that mindlessly conform to orthodoxy, water down everything they say, and tiptoe around eggshell skulls are the ones who are accepted.
>>82995268Happened maybe 6 times to me so far. Same as the other guy, time usually isn't an issue. But they already lost two things with those shenanigans. It's pretty annoying because all they'll say is just that "it says it was delivered." Well yeah, that's set by the delivery guy who may or may not have actually delivered my stuff. Anyway, having to then call up the companies and forcing them to give me a refund is a real pain.
>>82995339I'm always thankful to see anons contributing to community resources where they can.The WH+ vault has been useful for a few of the most recent WDs, since they went back to physical publishing only.I've had to re-subscribe to WD, because there's a clear demand for the rules (good and bad) that are being published there.As a heads up, I think the first WD I'm going to be getting is in February, so no luck on this months edition.>>82995355This one anon? I've supplied the raw scan that's been processed with a single small blur to reduce the scanning artefacts.
>>82995399>WH+ vault has been useful for a few of the most recent WDsI didn't even know we have a WH+ vault.
>>82995399yes that is the picture thank you very much
>>82995407Personally I don't subscribe to WH+, so I don't have access to the Vault where GW has been putting up legacy publications.There are a few people online who do take those releases and upload them though. The resource I have access to for Black Library content occasionally gets the WH+ content.The performance of their PDFs is absolute ass though, and I haven't worked out how to make it not awful yet.
>>82995176>>everyone leaves to get a slice, including my opponent>>just sit there for like 20-30 minutes on my phone while they all eat pizza in the other roomYou really are an autistic retard. Like an unironic one.
>>82995399Yeah I run tomes of shyish and the last WD we got fully scanned in was from october
>>82995399So is this what the Terran underhive really looks like?There was an anon who was talking about the how the surface culture/planetary architecture would impact the underhive. Like how the weapon factory planet of Necromunda's underhive is nothing but barely functioning automated industry and left over weaponry/ammunition and even the weapon production culture has produced gangs that make innovative tech, but fear the Mechanicus.That pic would actually be pretty fitting for a Terran underhive as even on the birthplace of humanity there is still a baroque look to it even in the most rundown and rotting places like an underhive.
>>82995442Hmm, that's a fair point. We don't have November and December's editions, do we?I'll have a look and see if I can snag a copy of each of those online to cover the gap.I'll have to pick up Jan's when that's available at my local store too.>>82995458Cheers anon, thank you for sharing those.
>>82995176had something similar happen once>playing at local gw>it's basically the only lgs with terrain in town>it's some kind of anniversary of the store>manager buys cake>messiest kind>offers it on flimsy paper plates>no fork or anything to eat it>basically all fatties at the place besides me>they all get a piece and eat it with their hands>meanwhile playing a game>get offered a piece>decline it because it's impossible to eat it without making a mess>cakes are also retarded fat/carb bomb and would ruin my macros>opponent takes his and eats it>walk by his carrying case at the end of the game>theres a fucking piece of cake lying right in the middle of the foamkinda feel likes a waste for not eating free cake, but having it fall in your case, ruin models and be a pain to clean up seem worth it
>>82995458thanks friendthere's only been 2 masterclasses so far?
>>82995485Same anon about the WD here,Yeah because im more of a lore nerd its quite the challenge to A catch whats in the white dwarf and then B ask people to take pictures of these weird pages for the lore
>>82995421deadass sick cunt, frfr
>>82995519holy fuuuuuuuuck rippppppp clown players
>>82995495Alright, when I get back I'll order WD 470 and 471 on eBay to (hopefully) cover those relatively soon.Once I get back into the swing of WD scanning, I'll be posting those to /aosg/ as well.Are there any other WDs that we're missing? I've been off the pulse about them since the digital editions ended.
>>82995535I have up to october of 2021, I can say that the WH+ started mid 2021 so we should be good
>>82995458>>82995485>>82995491https://workupload.com/file/cRBL6wh9ekYAlso the latest Hammer and Bolter
will custodes be an actual army now that sisters of silence are in different slots? like actual chaff units of sisters and whatnot as troops instead of the army just being 20 gigachads
>>82995554SoS are good but you still want gigachads in 3's since they can now tank 10 Incubi and wipe the unit in a turn. Also they are cancer to get off of objectives and all Custodes Infantry is obsec.
>>82995554the whole point of the army is to be 20 gigachads thoughdoes anyone like these dumb bitches, did we really need 2 squads of them in the fucking combat patrol
Anywhete to get the old 7th ed Codexs as PDFs? Found a few by looking around but many seem lost to time.
>>82995565Yes they are excellent for 60 points and help with Psykers. Also those flamer chicks are awesome.
>>82995570there are a few comprehensive repositories googling around will find you a lot of them via people posting them here in days past
>>82995570>7th is lost to timegood
>>82995491The earlier ones are in the first mega link
>>82995584ah, I thought it was just two mirrors for the same stuff.thanks!
>>82995570>cdNgUZKB#JXHngKc69jWFXv1wjVdL2gI really gotta update this for 9th ed some time
>>82995570Personally 7th edition had some of the weakest codices. I liked the 6th ed rulebook better anyways because no physic phase and no invisibility. And the game wasnt so chock full of stealth+shrouded. We just played with a ban on flyers and 6th was pretty fun.
>>829956067th edition was clearly rushed out due to people hating 6th, rumors are that magnus was orginally going to be the big villian for 8th
>>82995623Yeh but the things that made 6th bad were not fixed by the BRB. I think the only rules that improved in 7th was the rules regarding flying monstrous creatures with landing and charging. I think in 6th you could do that in one turn, 7th made you do it over two turns.
few pages into the new codex and holy shit the difference in quality is glaring. it's as if they want everyone to know how little they care about art these days.
>30k vexilla bearer: sentinel blade or power weapon>40k vexilla bearer: guardian spear, guardian axe or shield>mfw no overlap of any kind in terms of gear
>>82995648settle down grog
>everywhere in my country is out of SC Genestealer Cultsfuck!
>>82995648looks perfectly nice to me
>>82995652just give them a spear and say its a power spear in 30k, they have power spears right?
>>82995648>hes only noticing this nowthe art has been getting progressively worse since 6th edition, it peaked around the end of 8th edition where we got dogshit tier art like pic related. 9th seems to be slightly better so hopefully in like 12th edition we'll be back to the kino of 3-5th
>>82995648It's less of a quality thing and more of a "GW has decided that art should actually match the miniatures." So nothing overly ornate, nothing stylised.
>>82995669>they have power spears right?Not as a generic power weapon. It's even more infuriating that only FW option you can make is the power weapon via the misericordia arm. There's no way to have both a vexilla and sentinel blade without converting it.
>>82995691If you said that in /hhg/ theyd say good as converting is more hobby
>>82995701You can convert anything you want it doesn't magically give it rules
>>82995712oh no I agree 100% with you its just that heresy players are autistic
>>82995704How did we get the dark eldar art when they put this one out around the same time
>>82995701They'll say anything to defend the crap FW writes.
>>82995673>busy art is good artshut up you fucking moron
>>82995519Not entirely surprising, considering the GW clearly intended to kill solo harlequin players, but still disappointing.
>>82995731they will indeed, when anyone complains about balance they say "well if you care about whats OP youre a waacfag"
>>82995673the custodes art is not on AoS 1.0 levels
>>82995681never. the art is shit now cos GW realised it was cheaper to hire artists who do art for korean mobile games. you really think GW would pay extra for kino art when they could pay $50 for a shitty portrait of a blighthauler that has the moldlines painted onto it?
>>82995734>implying right side isn't busyBack to /co/
>>82995734what's the matter, timmy? is quality design triggering your sensory overload?
>>82995648While normally I would agree, the old Custodes art universally looks like shit and everything in the new codex is factually better.
>>82995730When GW does something well they need to fuck up somewhere else. Balance in all things.
is there still a mega for novels and whatnot? I need some readin material
>>82995740>"well if you care about whats OP youre a waacfag"
>>82995771thin your paints
>>82993419might do okay vs those armies. Most current edition codexes really brutalize big blobs of boyz these days, though. If you're thinking of removing nobz, do so. Regular nobz are just real bad right now, especially since goffs just give your boyz the extra S. Overall your army is pretty slow, with some easily avoidable/screenable/easily killed heavy hitters, but vs those armies he shouldn't have a ton of screens available at least.
>>82995785projecting much? see: >>82995750
>>82995771Up here bud, "Black Library" folder>>82995600
>>82993135How the fuck does the generational offspring stuff work anyhow? Do people fuck the first generation mutants lmao
>>82994450get thee a primus
>>82995519This is niggershit. Possibly the only reason I would ever consider playing Eldar. Good thing I didn't buy any clownshit and waste my time.
>>82995834Mind Control. Yes.
>>82995519Get fucked Ronald
>>82995837>>82995842That's terrible lol
>>82995530>>82995735>>82995838>>82995851you guys got baited you fucking mongs. that's the 8th edition codexthis general i fucking swear
is there going to be a points rebalancing for all factions for 2022? any ETA?
>>82995864Yes. Chapter Approved 2022 is right around the corner, anon. I am willing to bet we'll get it after Eldar and Tau codices drop.
>>82995863I'll own up to my newfaggotry. I only buy shit exclusively if it looks cool and hope that it'll be worth using in a game once I prioritize painting. You could have posted rules from Kill Team and I'd have been fooled.
>>82995878does GW usually make big sweeping changes with chapter approved or do they just make a couple?
>>82995899usually just a few, and seemingly at random
>>82995863Don't care, get fucked Ronald
https://forms.gle/Y2nEkzgUSY9cBVgE7I just need a few more responses to get to 100, and then I'll compile it and show everyone the factions /40kg/ plays
>>82995600You're a legend
>>82995565>does anyone like these dumb bitchesA lot of people in my locality actually prefer them over custodesAnd I agree. Custodes are kind of boring. A bunch of negative soul women who take a vow if silence and run the black fleet while hunting down psykers is much more interesting.
>>82995933Alright I answered. I'll be interested to see the results anon
How do I build a melee centered SoB list?
>>82995943celestine, bloody rose, tons of repentia and penitent engines
>>82995878do we have an eta on the codices?
>>82995942I'll wait till the next thread gets made before i start compiling it to make sure I don't accidently ignore an anons contribution
>>82995951Thank you anon, I appreciate the help
>>82995834I'd fuck a female genestealer with no mind control needed.
>>82995943Celestine, Zephyrim, Repentia/Superior, Arco-flagellents, Crusaders, Death Cult Assassins, Penitent Engines/Mortifiers.
>>82995953Looks like they're shooting for two per month. I'm thinking February. We'll get Chaos Space Marines next month.
>>82995954Don't end it yet dingus, post survey in the next thread at the start and try to hit 120+ respondents. Don't rush
>>82995987Fair point, just tired. I'll do that
>>82995978Thanks for the help anon
>>82993658Makes the models cooler.
