Hey, so I don't know about what counts as "quality", but I've been fiddling on and off with the mathhammer sheet, starting out of curiosity on who would win in a 1v1 out of all the TEQs. Long story short, it kinda got out of hand, and I ended up making a new tab with all the various TEQ and quasi-TEQ (all multiwound infantry, really) in the game and how they stack up against various targets, point efficiency, all that jazz. I did it manually instead of just copying the values from the sheet because I found it relaxing, for some reason, and wanted to change a couple things. It's still only half finished, because I want to do the defensive side too, but that'll have to wait.

Anyway, here it is, under the "Heavy Infantry" tag. Thoughts, suggestions, accusations of homosexuality?https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10t6_FO9mTaG8FHY4B7v6hOQgwc3gXxUiIOrMYt16I6M/edit#gid=528950754

Rolls 2 ones, rerolls, rolls one more 1.
Leman Russ soaks up 8 damage
Techpriest+Strategem=3 health back
Total Trade: 1/2 of a Russ for a single 33 point soldier, and its not even the Guard's turn yet.

Seriously, give the poor newbies something that won't explode 1 of the squad once every 3 turns!

Okay you're kinda on the right track but you messed it up a little.

1: No contrast in the undersuit. I strongly suggest making it black.

2: A strong green and a strong purple look like a he-man toy, especially with a completely different third colour in the form of the orange. Maybe try a dark yellow for your sept colour?

They were, but, they had a chance to make them less of a meme and at least have some utility. A smart foe will just table you before T3 where it has a reasonable chance to fire, if not, by then things are spread out enough that it doesn't matter where it lands. I get it's power means not allowing it to strike T1, but eh, it is a non choice outside of apocalypse and campaigns. And the loss of unlimited range means I can't have fun launching it from Oregon to North Carolina.

How much do you know about colour theory user?

Loosely, two colours on the opposite side of the colour wheel will certainly pop against one another, but they need to be used carefully, with a light hand, or you get a clash.

Movie posters are tinted orange and blue, because they're opposites, but they aren't violently orange and blue. It's a faded, dark tint to force the eye to pay attention.

paladins are fantastic against daemons, mediocre to shit against most else, gk termies just suck
sicarians are very cost effective offensively
custodes are shockingly good for their cost, despite what some people say
meganobz are awesome at killing heavy shit, but good luck at getting them there
nid teqs are great at killing infantry in general
almost nothing is cost effective at killing th/ss termies

Not really, because points are being adjusted is the main thing, it is mostly a FAQ. You just have to reference it when list building, if you are at a place that people need to see points values for lists or you build them right before the match then yeah, you do. As it is, I already take the Rulebook and Codex (IG) with me so taking CA with me is just one more thing because it has new missions in it which is nice.

In reality you will just need to know the rule changes and take the codex with you and make your lists with the updated points costs unless your LGS is pants on head stupid.

Mainly Blood Axe Ork Mercenary warband that does a lot of work with the Tau and the Imperium: mainly against 'Nids and Chaos with the occasional assistance against Dark Eldar raiders. Tau trust them enough to fight with them in the same battles, not the Tau units are too happy about it; Orks don't care either way s'long as there's a fight. The rationale is that as long as there are the Tau and Imperial worlds the Orks don't actually have to look for a fight, the fight will just go to one of those worlds. The free dakka and loot from either faction doesn't hurt. The Warboss is smart cookie and actually likes to read on occasion (not that he can read very well.... but it's the thought that counts). Very mechanized army, and for the groups of boyz too big for battlewagons they've got a couple of Weirdboyz to Jump 'em.

I just wish I could get them a win or two but I keep letting the ladz down ;_;

@Harmless_Venom
What do you dislike about them so passionately?

In a nutshell: They simply don't stack up to a lot of non-40k fictoin I've read. I like to read, too - but I'm not going to read a 40k book (or Star Wars, or BattleTech, or D&D, or Shadowrun, or etc) just because it belongs to a franchise of game I happen to play if it's a complete waste of time. And 40k novels are generally shit if you consider yourself a fan of reading books in general.

But if you consider yourself a 40k fan BEFORE you consider yourself a voracious reader, then I can see the appeal, I guess.

Listen up, nigger. You suggested that someone who enjoys reading should not waste their time with 40K novels on the basis that they are not generally full of the qualities which one might define as "good" in literature. The fact that you are here right now, wasting time on meaningless shitposts, undermines your very point. You do not need to preserve your eyes and your time for the sanctified pages of Classical Literature(TM), and reading any material for enjoyment can be worthwhile. You could have left your comment at "40K novels are generally not high-quality literature", but nobody expects that. You read 40K novels for the same reason you read shitposts in this thread; they're mindless entertainment dealing with a topic you are at least tangentially interested in. If you are over-analyzing the syntax, or the metaphors, or whatever else, you're doing it wrong.

Psychic Power- warp charge of 7. Select an enemy unit within 18" and roll 9 dice. The unit suffers mortal wounds on each roll of a 6
Quick math tells me that 1-2 mortal wounds for a WC of 7. Just why?

The easiest thing Geedubs could do would be just port over more Tzaangor. Also let us use regular dreads as Psyker Dreads.

I have seen them done really well, the new kits are really nice at times. GW really needs to fire whoever decided the color scheme for them because it has given me a lot of unwarranted hatred for some decent models.

Much as I don't care for Tzaangors, more tzaangors would fill a lot to the point where I'm afraid that Tzaangors will take all the roles.

They need something that's either fast and melee focused, or some kind of tank melting high damage gun platform.
People won't have to see Magnus 24/7 if TS actually got something that filled that void and didn't have to rely on Magnus to solve all their problems.

Right now all their kits are favored toward "fuck power armor" and nothing else.

The Paladins of Khorne

A Chaos warband the follows the martial honour and valour focused aspect of Khorne.
They consider that while Khorne is happy with any blood he prefers the blood and skulls of warriors, the greater the skill of the slain the more Khorne is pleased. Consequently rather than launching raids as other warbands typically do they'll seek out existing battles dropping in to fight with the "underdog" against the stronger side (who's blood is more valuable), like some sort of bizzaro Legion of the Damned.

They think of themselves and present themselves as great and honourable warriors, this image being one of the main ways they recruit new marines. Drawing in those dissatisfied with Imperial rule but still wish to be heroes.

Only once an Initiate is fully inducted do they learn the truth of why they fight the way they do.
They don't spare the unarmed out of any sense of mercy, its contempt and the hope they'll one day become a warrior worthy of killing that stays a Paladins blade.
They side with the loser in a war not to defend the weak and the innocent but too prolong the war, turning a quick slaughter in to long a gruelling meat grinder, ensuring that in the end many more lives are lost in battle.

They also have a strong hatred for the World Eaters who they consider to be heretics doing it wrong and will always fight against them in any conflict they intervene in.

It's hard to get them much lore wise because the entire legion gimmick makes it hard to do anything outside of sorcerer or rubric, Tzaangors could be used to fill those roles and while I'm not against it I can see the problem of a space marine faction not using majority space marines.

I know, I jumped ship into 8th because HH is in the garbage fire that is 7th, but while the game is much more pleasant and functional, playing TS is incredibly dull.

It's very apparent that TS are an army that's based on what it is not in chaos. It's a shooty army in a wide faction that wants and pays points for wrecking shit in the face. It doesn't even achieve that goal well, because Slannesh gets double tap strategem and the noise marines themselves aren't that bad either.

Very easy, it's based mournfang brown with two thin layers of jokaero orange, then it's fuegan orange in the recesses followed by an all over wash of reikland flesh shade, then the part I have only done on the shoulders which is highlighting with troll slayer orange and a tiny bit of fire dragon for the extremes. It's very satisfying when it all comes together

@Methnerd
I think it looks bright because of my lighting and the lack of contrast (there is no highlighting on the majority of the armour yet.) if it does look too bright when I'm done I can tone it down like you say or with weathering

@eGremlin
Thankfully that's only on the closeups

He used to have a rule called "He's behind you!"

It allowed you to place him anywhere on the board you wanted, all it needed to be was more than 1" away from enemy models, in an edition where everyone else's deepstrike could randomly scatter up to a foot in any direction.

His rule didn't even count as entering from reserves, and he could be used in games that specifically forbid reserves, because he never deepstruck in.

He had been there the whole time, waiting. And then just to had insult to injury the crazy fuck had Initiative 5, 4 attacks, a goddamn sniper pistol with rending, melta bombs, a poisoned 2+ knife, and a motherfucking demo charge that could murder entire terminator squads in a single throw. He was one of the IG's most beloved characters and in 5th it was considered a right of passage for a new guard player to convert a marbo to call his own from whatever army he ran. Sadly now he'll be Catachan only but it's a small price to pay.
