Reposting from the dying thread for some more feedback. So I just read through the AdMech codex leak and I'm hella excited to actually start building my army, finally. I had put it off since 8th was releasing not soon after my initial interest. As far as buying stuff, I only have the start collecting box, an extra box of Skitarii, and an extra Onager.

So I'm looking through the Forgeworlds and I kinda can't decide which I like better. I'm torn between Lucius and Stygies VIII.

Lucius
Dogma: -1AP weapons become 0AP weapons
Trait: +1 Invuln
Stratagem: 1CP: Hold back a unit. At the end of any of your movement phases, deep strike them within 9" of the enemy.
Relic: One use 30" teleport shunt, staying 9" from the enemy.

Stygies VII
Dogma: -1 to hit if further than 12" from the enemy
Trait: +1 to hit vs. non-imperial and non-chaos armies
Stratagem: 1CP: Infiltrate a unit 9" from the enemy in deployment.
Relic: Roll a d6 at the end of each fight phase for each unit within 1". On a 4+ that unit takes a mortal wound.

I honestly can't decide, and it's not for like paint scheme. I'm doing my own thing anyway with cool volcanic bases.

I think that Stygies' dogma is insanely useful, but the rest of the kit is pretty lackluster. Yeah you can Infiltrate some heavy hitters into cover and pop people around, but I'm not convinced that's better than outright deepstriking where I want, when I want. Not to mention my Dominus can literally clear the board in a single move if he needs to go repair a fallen crawler or something.

Lucius' dogma is...okay? It definitely shows off the 'We have the best armor in any forge world'. But stygies can outright make your opponents retarded. At the same time, there's no 'within 12' for Lucius either.

It's like, wacky teleport aesthetics vs Stealth aesthetics basically. Both Forge worlds are probably the only two runners up to Mars and their Cawl gunline. They're both good, really.

I'd say Rhinox or Russ, preferably the former. In my eyes the Khorne Red clashes a bit too much with the green, whereas the Rhinox Hide blends nicely, if a bit simply, and provides a darker contrast to the yellow and white.

On the other hand, the Russ Grey would keep the model looking lighter, if that's your preference. Both are good options though. It also depends how you intend to use it elsewhere on the model.

One thing I think you are forgetting is that you aren't obligated to choose your forge world's warlord trait or relic.

Stygies VIII may have a mediocre warlord trait and relic, but you don't care. You could give your warlord some of the better generic traits/relics. The '+1 to repair damage' trait and the Autocaudecus to let them re-roll repair dice (If I recall correctly, anyways) seem pretty powerful.

The only thing you cannot change is your Dogma and your stratagem. If it's a choice between the Dogma and stratagems of Lucius and Stygies, I think Stygies is the victor here. Stygies has a dogma that will be useful every single game. Stygies has a stratagem that will be useful every single game. If you want to infiltrate more cautiously in case you don't get the first turn, you can do that. If you want to play risky and hope for a turn one charge, you can do that.

Lucius is great, but I think Stygies has more options hidden in the stratagem and has likely the best dogma out of any of the forge worlds. I don't really think there are any units that Lucius runs better than Stygies (or any other faction for that matter). Stygies, on the other hand, is likely the best faction at running Dragoons bar none.

With the Imperium reeling from the disastrous effects of the Great Rift, Mars commands all forge worlds to ramp up production to unprecedented levels. They churn through raw materials and servitors as never before, and vast armadas are launched to strip entire star systems of resources. The forges must be fed at impossible rates in order to supply the endless war materiel required.

Rhinos are cheaper, and can bull into shooty units forcing them to lose a turn of shooting after delivering their cargo.

Razorbacks are pretty great with twin assault cannons, that they also transport 6 dudes is just a bonus.

And Stormravens are pretty great too. Hell, they can act as a drop pod and a luscius drop pod at the same time, all whilst being a powerful flyer that would be strong even without transport capacity.

Let's see, each Tarantula is 10pts bodycost, 40 for the twin lascannon, meaning you can get 80 for the WBT's cost. Which comes out to 31 wounds against the WBT for 4k points of Tarantulas in one turn of shooting, without taking into account degradation.

Every forge world used skitarii, it's the only type of soldier the mechanicus used, and kastelans are the only pattern of robot used
st Company Skitarii guard titans

Those are 40k lore, anon. They changed over the years, since there's explicit reference to the other bloop patterns being rare now. Where the hell did you get "were all standardized" from, since it talks about all the mental shit they have and Voss Prime's thing is being unusually similar to Mars?
Only real change is different FWs still having their own Skittles in the Heresy, which may well have been the usual Mechanicum Protectors and Martian emissaries we knew existed already before evolving into FW forces as the Mech organize into the Admech.

BinaryMan
BinaryMan

The codex does talk about skitarii fighting skitarii during the horus heresy, which would be impossible if every skitarii was under mars' command as FW said. And FW did change the lore when they invented their "Secutarii." GW just seems to be changing it back.

He is wrong though about the robots though, the FW robots are explicitly mentioned.

Mars was split too, there was massive infighting between Loyalist Skitarii/CultMech and the twisted Darkmech versions produced by Kelbor Hal and his allies. It would easily be possible for some of Kane's Skittles to have started full-scale war, since he WAS Fabricator-Locum.

I don't see much conflict here, there's enough room in the galaxy for all of it to be true SOMEWHERE.
Also, Forge Worlds are apparently badass enough that the Great Rift only destroyed seven or eight, despite slashing though a hundred thousand worlds and there being about one FW per 100 other systems.

Well, it was less 'obligation' more like, additional options. Plus rule of cool. I've always loved both deep strikers and infiltrates. I have a feeling Stygies will be the best option of the Forgeworlds overall, without Cawl.

I suppose there's some merit to running two different dogmas in an army, under one banner. They are just rules, after all. Put the dragoons and anything that needs to Infiltrate into a stygies battalion and put anything you want to survive or deep strike in a Lucian one.

But that just feels cheesy to me.

They are my favorite legion as well, but it feels absolutely awful getting the space-marine trinket-text rule 'and they shall know no fear' instead of an actual legion rule. Also with the nerfs to summoning, you're spending a lot of points for the option to unreliably deepstrike an ok unit; even if you get to pick it to suit your opponent, they're not that great.

Gal Vorbak are amazing in 30k, but in 40k they feel slightly overcosted, like almost everything from 30k in 40k. I still don't think 40k Posessed are worth it, since 1/3 of the time, they are only putting out 1 attack each, which puts them on par with your basic infantry- even if their attacks are stronger. Khorne Berzerkers feel like a better investment of points.

Ironically, this is similar to the situation with other factions, like Space Marines.

If you're not taking Ultramarines, and thus Guilieman, than Raven Guard is the best probably.

Without a big character comparable at the moment, Alpha Legion is the best for Chaos.

General tactics: Keep all the guardsmen blobbed, deepstrike vindicare and callidus to snipe out HQs and bubbles, keep wyvern and russes in the very back, not moving, in order to just snipe out everything

Like I said last thread, I'm looking for tactics that remain fair. I use all the named characters mostly because that's what I have. I'm still pretty limited in what I have access to. Aside from what I have listed, I have a chimaera left to build, more footslogging infantry, and a lot of different special weapons, as well as conversions to turn the battle tanks into demolishers. My locals is pretty diverse, ranging from marines and CSMs to eldar, nids, genestealers, and orks, as well as a SoB player, some chaos daemons, and a DE player.

They're either the same cost or cheaper per model anyway.

Why pick Death Guard if you don't like how they look?

The rules, also you could do heresy era death guard that have few if not no mutations yet.

Not really. Hardly any modern GW kits have noticable mould lines and what you will find a hobby knife and emery board should cover.

No because why would you put them in melee to begin with.

I'm going to be trying them as cover-campers in a stygies VIII force. I figure T5, 2+, with -1 to hit should take some effort to kill.

stygies don't use physical camouflage to stealth, they use countermeasures and shit.

If you're
a) a klutz
or
b) a lefty

Yes.
As a lefty I spend 2/3ds of my work time re-tightening the blade on my craft knife when removing mold lines.

If you are picking an army just for rules in 40k you are playing the wrong game

its really good at what its supposed to do, so if you feel you need a dedicated tool to remove mold lines go for it.

you can have the same results with a knife/scalpel, but it requires more precision to use so you don't cut into the model.

If you say so. But you shouldn't take a game so seriously.

Questions on the yncarne;

If i teleport it to a dead units location and then it gets to make a soulburst action, can it use that action to charge? Or does the teleport inhibit it?

If i use another units soulburst to charge after it kills everyone in combat, does it get to fight the unit it charges? Or does it just lock them down til next turn?

Bidwell

You misunderstand. I'm playing the army I like regardless. They just gave me two options I both like.

I like it more than a knife, saves the edge on your knife and impossible to accidentally dig too deep while scraping or

Now that the codex and a few kits are out, what would be the best way to expand the Dark Imperium Death Guard army?

plague crawlers are needed to give them proper anti-tank.

Adding Blighthauler and the First Strike Plague Boys & Poxwalkers, the starter set becomes a cool 1001 points. Thanks! Moving up to 1500, more poxwalker chaff/Blightlords?
