Do Assassins such as Callidus and Vindicare have the emotional capacity to form emotional bonds?
Do they experience friendship and attachment?

This may be a dumb question, but I feel compelled to ask because I feel as though its never been stated explicitly (at least to my knowledge).

Hey there Veeky Forums, had any fun games?

I had a game today, dark eldar vs raven guard. Real space raiders vs pinion battle company.

Scouts outflanking turn one, each one that makes their reserve roll can bring in a fellow unit with them as well as ignores cover on everything. Still managed to draw due to my harlequins destroying half his infantry.

FastChef

Assassins are even more weaponized than Astartes and marines are absolutely detached from humanity, they're almost inhuman so I'd say no as they've given away their humanity in order to become living weapons. In the case of Callidus its even worse considering they are constantly taking new identities and living false lives, at some point their emotions become tools of the trade rather than emotions.

That thing about the Callidus might fit with what I'm writing.

Would it be feasible for a Callidus assigned to an Inquisitor's taskforce to create a specific persona for interactions within the taskforce? If only for the purposes of efficiency in coordination and allowing said taskforce to fully trust her?

This has literally never been canon. Chaos trades reliability for power. Daemon Weapons gain an ability to turn on their owner for increased strength and crazy abilities. Daemonic Possession makes vehicles more difficult to stop at the expense of safety.

Take a look at all the options available to Chaos Knights and Titans then compare with Imperial ones.

Lorewise, the old Citadel Journal mentioned one called "Abominatus "Despoiler of Worlds", a Khorne Imperator that was extremely resistant to psychic attacks, in addition to having a few more weapons than an Imperial Imperator would.

It also mentioned one called "Skylok", a Winged Imperator Titan of Tzeentch (meaning it could possibly have been an Imperator Titan capable of flying).

Finally there is "Augmenautus Rex", which required the efforts of multiple Titans (not limited to Warlords) to stop as it's Void Shields were incredibly power. Even after being taken down, it took roughly ten minutes of concentrated fire to fully destroy it.

Thanks again to the user who made me a random IG list. I think ive been seriously underestimating sniper special teams. Just looking at the numbers, just the fact you get six bodies and that rifles are straight up better than lasguns for wounding for barely 30pts is insane to think about. Why are they usually overlooked again?

Bidwell

I meant if she was working with the taskforce.
My reasoning would be that if her presence as a black-suited emotionally-detached enigma was found unnerving by ordinary Guardsmen, or even the Inquisitor's henchmen depending on their personalities, it could end very badly.

Hence, it would make sense for her to put on a persona for the taskforce to interact with, if only to make them more at-ease around her.

Skullbone
Skullbone

Death Cult are much looser with regard to indoctrination since they're entirely outside the Officio Assassinorum. Although they're "cold blooded killers" by rule and fanatically devoted to the Emperor, I don't think developing emotional attachments would be that uncommon. You could see one becoming close to their Inquisitor for example.

Just remember that Assassins are sent after targets. It's possible your situation might arise if it's what the Callidus needed to do to get to her target (And maybe the Inquisitor knows of her because higher ups said something), but she wouldn't just be open-endedly assigned to an Inquisitor as part of a broader Taskforce.

Everything except his brain, augmenting it is ok but removing parts of your brain is radical and can be heresy, even the removal of your emotions is seen as too much in the eyes of many techpriests, I imagine a full blown cyberbrain is the highest of heresies.

Honestly, I'd maybe add the knives, but the canteens aren't really necessary. I usually don't add them.

My army (that I literally just started today) is a hodgepodge conglomeration of various Scion, Cadian, and Catachan bitz in an attempt to create an army modeled around Houston culture.

Some models wear bright orange reflector vests over a white T-Shirt and jeans and white-painted Cadian helmets

Some models have full suits of armor tacticooled the fuck out

Knives are all big

Unit of Black Panthers with Scion beret heads

Unit of 1836's in tank tops and tatted out

Unit of skin-heads in armor and grey uniforms

Sentinels are slate-gray with an HPD shield painted on

Scions all dark blue with white cowboy hats

All units use Tauroxes, and each will be painted in candy paint with chrome rims and big exhaust pipes

Truck nuts made of skulls on each one

Flag says "FREE BOOSIE"

It really depends on the outlook of the Tech-priest in question, like adherence to the Imperial Creed. The absolute line is no creating unrestricted (SERIOUSLY restricted, like the Kastelan Robots use data cards to be allowed to shoot restricted) AI, no replacing the entire brain, and no Chaos bullshit or reverse engineering Xenos tech unless you are a High ranking Magos and do it in secret, then pass off your development as Divine intervention from the Omnissiah.

Even then, we have decently intelligent cogitators floating about, cranial implants that can mimic certain Human functions and the Automata were considered non-Abominable Intelligence due to their programming routines.

I think the main problem comes from the separation of the Mechanicus's definition of AI and the real life definition of AI. Even Servo-Skulls would be considered AI by today's standards.

I'm thinking of adding autocannons to my guard squads just to give them the extra range. I mean, its my space-shermans doing the heavy lifting, and the two vet squads doing the midfield capping, so my regulars are doing backfield, flank-holding, and tank guarding. That means they don't get to use those 24" guns much (in shooting galleries at least) so some '48s might give them the utility they need to make them worthwhile. I also got the command squads so I can group up and use commands to keep moving about.

Defiler, Forgefiend, Maulerfiend, and Heldrake are all post-Heresy inventions. Unfortunately, half of them are shit. What I really want to see is CSM to stop following Imperial vehicle designs. If Warpsmith Lord Tentacock wants to replace the Demolisher Cannon on a Vindicator with a Baleflamer and call it the Burning Itch, who's going to stop him? The Dark Mech won't give a fuck, and, if the machine isn't already corrupted all to hell, he can just bind a daemon in there to replace it. If the Iron Warriors want to start bolting heavy armor and assault ramps onto their Rhinos, what's stopping them?

why the fuck would the dark mech, even more self centered and greedy, want to give anything but the bare minimum to CSM.
Because they want the CSM to do something for them, or the CSM beat their asses and take it, or they want some piece of tech the CSM found/stole/created, or one of any of a billion reasons.

Also, slaves and plunder are good enough reasons to share. For all their vaunted technology and knowledge, it doesn't appear they bother with gathering slaves and menials on their own.

The only rumor I've heard is a long way off. Supposedly some time after the supposed War in the Web way campaign, GW will release a campaign with Orks, Nids, and maybe IG about the Octarius system. I heard there might also be a new plastic kit that can be built into either Ghazghkull or a generic Mega-Armor Warboss.

I'm not sure I believe it, but it doesn't sound too outlandish. That's all I've heard about Orks though.

CSM are shit. If you want to play Space Marines that are evil and spiky, just use loyalist rules with spiky models.

The "Chaos are good without Chaos Space Marines" thing is due to two things. There's a tournament winning list that's 1/3 Brass Scorpion (FW Super Heavy), 1/3 Tzeentch Daemons, 3/10 Tanks and Planes and Cultists, and 1/30 Chaos Space Marine. For a good chunk of 6th edition, one of the meta lists was a bunch of Heldrakes with cultists.

Hey so I'm a total newfag at 40k but my buddy and I picked up dark vengeance and want to know what to pick up next - we're just sticking with chaos and dark angels having fun playing against each other nothing too competitive. More looking for good variety and value.

Preferably like to spend $200, each, max.

He was thinking deathwing knights and some basic marines maybe the 'start collecting' box. I was thinking the chaos start collecting box and a forgefiend/maulerfiend (not sure which to build) and/or maybe raptors?

Not really interested in tanks.

Eh, it really depends on how casual you mean and what armies. In the CSM versus SM match-up, you're pretty much fucked barring luck/skill. Pretty much everything they have is cheaper and more effective than your equivalent. This poor fuck, , is screwed. The DA half of that box has a significant points advantage, and the CSM half is shit anyways. He's extra fucked since "stick small squads of dudes in Rhinos and drive onto objectives" is the only thing CSM do okay, and even then they're worse at it than DA.

I get competitive play etc we're moving to 40k from warmachine (tho we haven't played it in almost 6 years now) but think of 40k more like a fun tabletop game we play vs one another than anything else. And we got attached to the 40k universe from the various FFG titles set there (RIP).

FWIW we did read about the power disparity between both sides in the DV box and took advice on balanced scenarios and ways to tweak it. Which would likely make a serious player like yourself cringe lol

You should seriously consider switching out one of those Power Fists for a Lightning Claw. It's not only ten points cheaper, but you gain nothing by having two power fists that you wouldn't also gain with a Fist/Claw combo. You also get the added benefit of being able to strike at initiative and AP3 with Shred when fighting infantry, which you'd lack if youj just did double-fist.

You're essentially paying 50pts when you could get the EXACT same thing, but with an added anti-infantry profile, for only 40pts.

But yeah, Fist-Claw on a Jump Lord is a lot of fun when it works.

Harmless_Venom

Cool suggestion, thanks. I'm a stickler for detail, so I guess I'll just ask if I can proxy a lightning claw on to him when I play so I can keep the matching fists.

Thanks for the tip. That was kind of what I was figuring, but it never hurts to ask.

Not gonna lie I've thought about making them before.

These guys are a little different. I see them as disillusioned marines from a mix of legions that decided there had to be something more in the universe, and found spiritual inspiration in the massive void creatures living above and around them.

I'm going to build them as if they had very limited resources, with lots of solid slug weaponry (shotguns, autoguns), bolters will be very rare and typically reserved for specialists, and with minimal vehicles, possibly just the dreadnaughts in calth, and a few rhinos.

Possibly some heresy with Emperor's Children style gene modification, splicing the DNA of the void whale into their own bodies, but I'm still working on it.

Very fluffy, but I have other armies to play with if I really want to win. These are more of an art project for my wife and I. They may supplement my SW in 40k games one day if I want to see them in more competitive play.

kizzmybutt

Yeah, exactly why I'm looking at Admech and maybe even Marines (But I don't care much for most Marine chapters, so I guess it would have to be Iron Hands or Raven Guard/Raptors).

You can probably find pre-painted Guard on ebay desu. I also find them relatively simple to paint, tanks don't need much in the way of finesse as a simple nature, though obviously time benefits it a great deal. Guardsmen can be assembly-lined pretty effectively and also don't need great detail.

Flameblow

In the 30k rules it is likely the squads will be separate as the "leaked" custodes rules in 30k you couldn't mix and match swords and halberds.
In the released 40k rules you can kit a squad out however you like.

DeathDog

The concept is fine, but those wheels are goofy. Should have treads. And the Lord of Battles is really top heavy. The 40k Lord of Skulls is a good example of the Epic aesthetic modernized.

Get sad that the Inquisitor is dead
But it's OK because he became a webway ghost himself and possessed the unborn child the girl the assassins ghost inhabited
Get to eventually give birth to the Inquisitor and raise him as his own son
None of this is Heresy since the Inquisitor met the Emperor in person, mind melded with him then the Emperor sent him along with his blessing.

That's just the instruction booklet for the kit. There is a little lore book called "Legions at War" that has a little fluff.

It starts of with 5 pages of backstory on the Heresy, Horus' rise to Warmaster, and the Treaty of Nikaea. Then it goes into detail with the Space Wolves Legion for 4 pages. Then Custodes and Sisters for 1 page each. Then Thousand Sons for 4 pages, then 2 pages of ads for Forge World and the Horus Heresy book series.

It also has some art exactly like pic related for each unit. There's one for all the models in the game I think (Space Wolf Tactical, Geiger Fell-Hand, Custodian, Sisters, Ahriman, Thousand Sons Tactical, Thousand Suns Terminator) and I think one model of each unit type is given a name (IE one of the Sister is referred to as "Magdalae Ven Allatos, Sisters of Silence, Snow Lynx Vigilator Squad") like how each of the Fists in pic related has in red text.

It really all depends.

Most of the time however:
Command Squad 4x Volley Guns
Command Squad 4x Plasma Guns
Commissar for day dere formation

2x 10 man scions with Plasma
1-2x 10 man scions with Melta
2x 10 man scions with Volley Guns

4-6 Tauroxes some with ML.

Everyone just seems to assume I'll either: sit there and let stuff get blown up or charge blindly into CC. They always seem a bit throw off when I drive my Tauroxes through a ruin to have 4 scions jump out with Plasma Guns that are twin linked, pinning and if the order goes off preferred enemy.

Wait another month. We should be getting details within the next few weeks on what the holiday bundles should be which would go on sale around Black Friday.
AdMech will most likely have a bundle or two. last year the bundles were a skitarii battle maniple and cult mech elimination maniple

Yeah, a new Chaos kit would never, ever sell. Excellent analysis. I'm amaze they bother to make any new Chaos kits at all given how remarkably unpopular the faction is and how poorly its sales have been despite having such well-written and flavorful rules.

When I worked for GW, i have a memory of waiting around outside the warehouse before a staff tournament and someone yelled "hey is this the line for free copies of gorkamorka?". It was hilarious at the time. In retrospect, it was probably in my top 5 GW games ever made, with a few tweaks with regards to the expansion (much like Necromunda).

1. Do the guard have any kind of artillery flare and are there rules for having claymores and flares and the like set up around a camp?

2. Are the sneaky purple orcs still a thing?

4. does anyone have the link for the Chapter Master FAQ?

What's wrong with it?

Honestly I think the reason everyone points to these as examples of terrible models is literally just the faces, and maybe the pose of the legs a bit (but not nearly as much of an issue as the faces). A simple headswap makes these models actually look pretty good.

I feel you man, though in my case it's that I can't stand anyone in my area. So many WAAC people, I just want a fun friendly game where you can have a laugh and fun banter with the other player.

Last time I played in the community I saw nothing but Riptides and Wraithknights in lists (as allies in different armies as well).

Heck, the last tournament in my area was 1500 points and people were taking Shadowswords and War Hounds in lists. Where the fun flavour filled armies that got my into this hobby years ago?

All this effort invested in dumb shit I've never seen a single soul use on a table.
zero effort invested in giving models to unit entries from codexes dating back decades
zero effort redoing SoB, new city terrains, new craters, new ork deffdreads
Years of crappy huge models exactly as Stelek said there would be, no wonder why he sold his stock. Might be an idea to buy some now though, seems like GW are really heavily investing in getting their name back in to peoples mouths.

there's at a minimum a driver and a gunner (for the heavy bolter)

Possibly also a vox officer, since IG vehicles usually have them as their own thing separate from the driver/commander.

1. How rare is the Dracosian by 40k?
2. The fluff description of the wyvern (and the hydra) mentions a machine spirit, and not simply a we-think-tech-is-magic type machine spirit but something that's actually making decisions and targeting shit, but guard don't have access to power of the machine spirit tank upgrades. I feel like I'm missing something here can some helpful neckbeard explain?
3: any work been done on mole marines lately

40k really only got massive in my part of the world after DOW1 launched, until then it had mostly been just a game that the weird kids at school played. After DOW1 a lot of teenagers in my part of town started collecting some models here and there. So right around early 5th edition GW had this massive influx of new players buying up shit by the truckloads, they proceed to burn all their bridges and farm out the IP licence to any 2-bit chancer dev studio meanwhile totally failing to invigorate their WHFB line. Imagine how insanely popular WHFB end times would have been if TW:WH had launched like 4 years ago?

I'm not sure it was totally relevant to 40k, at the time of the writing of that article there was several producers going down the all or nothing, bigger = better approach and neglecting their bottom line completely. We still see it today with some releases coming out but instead of just giant kits like screaming bell and rat abomination we are getting things like stormcast eternals and those chaos troops.

AoS has managed to hit about a third of GW's total sales, which is way more than WHFB ever was. Although I suppose you could make an argument that maybe some of that is 40k showing weakness.

40k has strained under the pressure of shitty releases, drama online, high prices and a collapsing middle class. At the moment you can do anything you want to in regards to pc-game release since the setting is very flexible and this I think is an area they're pinning a lot of hope on to keep the project going before releasing 8th ed and fixing 3 editions worth of technical and design debt.

The fuckfaces can start by making psychic powers buyable again so I dont end up with level 1 casters rolling level 2 powers and being utterly useless.

You do know that the WC cost of the spell has no bearing on what ML you need to cast it, right?

I'm fine with random powers, the tables just need to be less random. I think dropping each discipline down to one or two D3 tables would allow each to be a lot more focused. It's retarded when you're Pyromancer rolls two Blessings or your Biomancer rolls nothing but Witchfires.

While some of them certainly started that way, they started undergoing a schism during the Heresy and it's unlikely that many, if any, of those closet loyalists remain. 10,000 years is a long time to be undercover in a society that pretty routinely warps your shit for no reason.

Any closet loyalists would probably just jump ship at some point after the Second Founding. It wouldn't be that hard to steal the identity of some supposedly lost or annihilated chapter and set up shop way out in the middle of nowhere. The major difficulty would be securing and maintaining a geneseed farm within the chapter to keep some fresh Ultramarine seed to send in for tithes.

That's what my homebrew Alpha successors chapter did. They adopted the livery of an Ultramarines successor that disappeared in the warp and pretended to have been flung way out to the ass end of the far eastern rim, where they basically adopted a subsector perennially stranded by Warpstorms.
