I'd like to do a thread where each of us posts about one chapter, along with a tidbit of fluff that is theirs alone, like a difference in organisation, something about their history, the way they fight, etc.

It's always a good and interesting way to learn about other chapters. Doesn't have to be on the attached picture to be talked about.

Bonus points if you have a novel to recommend/to post with it, or at least a source so that people can read about it.

I'll start with the Dark Hunters.

WS successors, not very fond of the Mechanicus after their homeworld was attacked by a rogue Titan Legion. Because of this, they have few Techmarines and their Master of the Forge was voluntarily put in a Dreadnought to preserve him, when he was still alive and well.
Apply chameleoline paint on their armour to blend in the shadows.
Marines sometimes temporarily return to the Scout company for shits and giggles, making it a force of both novices and veterans, where the former can learn from the latter.
Because they're not a hugely important chapter with loads of political power like a 1st Founding chapter, they have alliances with other small chapters in their area, especially after their Homeworld was assaulted by the Punishers, a Chaos Warband.

Pdf related is an excellent book about them.

Quick repost before bed.

Struggling to come up with a half-decent 8th list for my Necrons. I've got a lot of weird odds and ends left over from 7th in various states of completion. What's a decent list I could build out of this collection? I'll most likely be playing Sautekh, incidentally.

24 warriors
2 Ghost Arks
4 Lords
3 Overlords
2 Crypteks (1 old 1 new)
CCB
15 Immortals (10 gauss 5 tesla)
5 Deathmarks
6 Wraiths
Spyder
6 Scarabs
3 Tomb blades
Doom/Night scythe (can swap out the part for either)
10 Lychguard (5 shield 5 warscythe)
5 Praetorians
2 Destroyers
Heavy Destroyer
Destroyer lord
Stalker
Monolith
Tesseract Vault
Deciever
Nightbringer

I'm not adverse to picking up an extra kit or two but I'd like to work with what I have. I do plan on picking up a Tomb Sentinel relatively soon, though. Thoughts?

Nice.

The Fire Lords are an IF successor hellbent on using fire (hence the name) but their little difference is that their marines replace their teeth with flintstones, and use a special drink to make their breath caught fire when they want, turning themselves into flame throwers.

It was talked about in Legion of the Damned I think, when the protagonist, of the Excoriators, fights a Fire Lord Chaplain during the Feast of Blades.

Barest minimum of tactical marines, but 140 points too many being spent on a character

In this kind of detachment, you should have plenty of command points, and you have no less than 6 different models who are all eligible for "Wisdom of the Ancients", so I don't see why you need to be bringing a captain.

I can tell you've spent too many points because if you swap Vaylund Cal for a generic HQ like a chaplain or a techpriest, you'll have enough points to buy another dreadnought. Or upgrade your devastator squad to having a Mortis-Dreadnought take up your mandatory "Leviathan's Tax".

Other than that, good list, I like it.

Step into the store to go check out what dreadnoughts people have dropped off since 8th started
Find this little guy(Although without the new base and CMC's yet)
Some random dude comes up to me and asks "You lookin' to start an army"
"Nope, expanding"
"Ah cool, what chapter?"
"Iron hands successor"
The dude sits there stunned for a few seconds
"Woah that's really rare, I've never seen someone play iron hands"

I'm gunna have fun painting this little guy up. He's my Sixteenth(16th) dreadnought to be added to the collection. With any luck I'll be priming him tomorrow and painting him friday.

Blood Ravens, outside of their extra Librarians, are essentially just Ultramarines since they follow the Codex as closely as most Chapters and are very fluid and flexible in their tactics.

8th edition has been really good to my dreadnoughts man. I started this game with only 3 dreadnoughts back in 6th edition, picked up 9 more dreadnoughts throughout 7th, and now I've picked up 4 more so far in 8th edition.

I've never actually ran Smashfucker, I just really fucking love dreadnoughts. In fact I have only ever seen smashfucker on the tabletop once, and that was in a tournament in 7th edition(LONG before Smashfucker Prime became a thing). I killed him by smashing his face in with a completely ordinary dreadnought.

Consecrators tend to have older marks of weapons and armours, and are notable in having a Chaplain-Interrogator as a Chapter Master, a fact which makes the DA not too happy to see them around, even when those come to help the Rock resist an attack by the DG.

Said Chapter Master is noted as wearing mk3 armour and having made several Fallen repent, as shown by a prayer chapelet with white beads on it attached to his armour. He trusts Azrael enough to send his own honour guard to him when he goes to fight Typhus.

Step 1: Reduce Wyches to 6 points. There is nothing about them that makes sense costing them at 9 for a dedicated melee unit.

Step 2: Stratagem for ignoring overwatch so they can actually charge without losing half the squad.

Step 3: Wych Cult rule that lets them advance and charge and make them always advance 6". Maybe make the charge a stratagem if it seems like too much.

Step 4: Stratagem to make the "no pulling out" rule work on a 2+ rather than a 4+ so it's almost gauranteed.

Now we have the best tarpit in the game. It STILL won't deal good damage but they'll be hard as FUCK to get rid of if they get stuck in.

I have been considering replacing cal with more cheaper hq's, I'll probably try that after I see how well he performs. Cal is a chapter master/techmarine so he provides re rolls to all failed hits while repairing shit. He's just about as durable with a dreadnought too considering T6, 4++ and with the iron resolve warlord trait and iron hands tactics he'll have two 6+++'s as well

I also have a warhound titan, cerastus castigator, imperial knight and 2 armigers.

Pictured is one of my chapters' relic contemptor dreads.

They have a penchant for plasma weapons, and are relic hunters, looking for old equipment, vaults and such to recover so they can bring the weapons and armor to bear against the enemies in the imperium. Based in the gothic sector.

Normally I'd do Legion of the Damned but since we did them last thread I'll switch it up.

The Dark Brotherhood was a warband of blackshields during the horus heresy. That is, they were a group of Astartes that had renounced their former lineages and sided with neither traitor or loyalist. They fought a long war with the Alpha Legion during the heresy itself and their leader, the Nemean, was one of the marines eventually recruited by Garro.

Their wargear was often made up of elements from different chapters and frequently had additional modifications and battlefield repairs. Similarly their mannerisms and iconography were divergent from the rest of the legions, save that all their armor was painted black. Their badge became a skeletal aquila and their arms were often adorned with marks and imagery of death.

They appear in HH 6

Some are for sure. I have also encountered guys where I have openly said the company practices in the past were horrid and they continued having normal non drone convos with me. I've never seen a GW employee bash the company, but I haven't had anyone freak out.

Although in my city about half the GW employees I talk to seem autistic/closed off. I don't want to seem like a douche, but they seem to fit the stereotypical wargamer " nerdy " look and I don't. It almost seems like some of them are intimidated, like they don't want me at the store.

Although on the flip side I have also had great convos with 2 different GW employees who seemed really eager to help me out/explain whatever. I can't blame the older fat guys though. I would be pretty depressed if I were in my mid 30's, obese and working at a GW for probably less than $20 an hour.

It's about having fun and plastic army men.

Exactly. At the end of the day taking yourself seriously in this hobby is autismo. We're playing with toy soldiers, loosen up and have fun. If you really derive pleasure from the result of toy soldier battles as a grown man you need a reality check imo.

That being said I love the hobby, and getting tipsy and playing is a great way to spend an evening with bros.

I would dump the datapriest, you have enough ranger chaff and scary countercharge potential with your custodes that the bots should be fine locking in positions and blasting away first turn. Use the stratagem and be done with it. Both your vexillas are offering very little for the price, the rangers won't really benefit from the defensor since they should have shroudpsalm all game with Cawl around, and they'll be min size squads with LD 8 around the dunecrawlers so the relic is nearly pointless. The rangers will either die outright or you might loose the last one to moral, not worth a relic and 114pts. If you dropped the vexillas and datasmith and ran the custodes as a patrol, you could take:

a bike captain with salvo launcher and misericorda
4 custodes, all with spears and misericordia
3 Vertus praetors with hurricane bolters

deploy the custodes as countercharge threat for cawl and the bots, or goldstrike them with the strat, your shieldcaptain will have a body guard of praetors instead of zipping around the map all by his lonesome and you can us the relic on something else. I question spending 100pts on enginseers for the second battalion but command points are to useful not to in this situation. Consider a brigade if you ever go pure Admech.

I would play one but it shouldn't be added to the standard line up.

I have just gotten back after 6 years. I find the pressure is much lower now. I tend to go in and get a " anything I can help you find? " . After grabbing what I need they always ask " is there anything else you need? " and that's about as much pressure as I have gotten.

This is my experience in the past month or so buying stuff 5ish times. Never any pressure. Maybe not the most talkative bunch in one particular location near my house. But for games I plan on driving to the further GW, where the staff seem more laid back/talkative about regular shit.

Usually the ones I've met are overly eager to sell product and hyped on everything GW does, they're nice enough but I guess the over-eagerness and slavish devotion to GW just kind of puts me off a bit, but its not really a big deal I just hate when I say anything thats nots "GW is amazing" they start defending the company like bruh i've been playing for like 15 years since before i was a teen I'm not going anywhere.

Weird. What state/country are you located in? I am in Alberta Canada. Haven't had anything of the sort here. I am just wondering as maybe sales quotas are different in different places.

manager talking about (the new Tau codex) how they can’t make farsights council thing because of commander limits
point out to them could just take a bunch of patrol detachments to get around it if you really wanted
Manager: “UH, yeah, I guess you could do that if you’re *that* kind of person. I think they didn’t they wrote that with *those* kinds of people in mind but I suppose you could do it like user said.

In the 4Ok universe the closest thing to a relatable, human character is an IG recruit. I'd start it off on a hive city, a group of friends from the slums join the guard to serve humanity and hopefully become commisars or commanders one day and make their families proud. First couple episodes are all "Uplifting Primer", prayers and drills, progaganda out the ass. Then we see them get stationed on a Catachan style deathworld as the reality of the situatikn come fully to bear. Everybody's favorite character get's ripped in half by a lictor. One of the main characters is summarily executed for hysterics. We then follow the rest of the group as they try to desperately survive while climbing thr ranks Gaunts Ghost style until we get tk see more "upper echelon" stuff when one becomes a Commisar and is deployed alongside some Astartes vs Chaos incursions etc.

I think inquisitors are pretty much the best thing to showcase 40k to an audience. They can move pretty freely throughout the setting and allow a large amount of characters to interact without breaking suspension of disbelief.

During the Badab incident, the Executioners evidently fought the Carcharadons to a bloody standstill in one encounter, only known to history because of Imperial forces coming across the ruined battlefield. Neither Chapter will talk about the incident in any way.

Except he's a Captain America analogue. He hasn't lost his humanity. Master chief is popular because he' basically the best goddamn Soldier. Space Marines aren't soldiers, they're warrior monks. Unless you dedicate an entire episode to explaining why every character is essentially an autistic walking armory nobody will get it. The reason the Space Marine movie was a flop (besides the bad CG) was that it spent too much time explaining shit, which is unfortunately necessary if your main characters are Astartes. Soldiers are immediately identifiable, easy to understand, and there is a REASON they wouldn't know things, a reason for them to learn as an audience surrogate. Not so much for Brother Captain Tiberius Testosterone. It works for video games because gamers are in for the power trip it gives them, normie ass movie goers are not the same and the fact that you think they are shows how removed from reality your perspective is.

Fine and dandy for a promotional thing, the issue comes when the new people run into the solid wall that is the actual game.

And if it's to be a good representation of the Guardsman life, it's be being deployed, heroicly rushing whatever, seeing hies squad tuned to pink mist breaking down, hiding in the ruins while your company is butchered, flash, intducted into new company, and it repeats, faster and faster until it becomes a series of 3 stills, Induction, Slaugher, Cowardice, where the character doesn't move a muscle, doesnt' change posture, not even facial expression, just his uniform, the battlefield, the enemy and the friends dying around him.

.
It seems that in their desperation to claim this planet, the forces of the Archenemy have been forced to pull together warriors from a variety of different sources. The degeneracy of our opponents’ methods is unspeakable. I’ve seen skull-faced warriors tear men limb from limb and use horrific terror tactics, hundreds of human soldiers driven like a living shield before our guns, and whole regiments forced back by rippling waves of psychic force. Luckily, we were relieved before long by a combined force of Reivers, Conscripts, and Wyrdvane Psykers from the Adeptus Astra Telepathica – truly, a unified Imperial assault is something to behold!

We're talking about a movie or tv show, not a game. In fact I was talking tv show specifically. Long term 1 hour episodes, GoT style. You could fasforward him up the chain, and it wouldn't be a bad idea, but not past a sargeant or captain or w.e Something where the character is no longer your every day soldier but still relatable. I'd probably have the first season end extremely anti climactically. Space marines show up, massive battle, super fucking intense. Protag gets wounded. Space marine walks by, protag begs for help. Space marine decides help is less cost effective than the emperor's mercy, protag dies alone. Next season follows an inquisitor or space marine captain now that the setting has been properly introduced, more likely than not one set up as a "side" character in season one. Basically play the GoT card of an ever increasing cast at that point, but not poorly.

no not EVERY grill but IMO the "hobby distribution" is highly bimodal. The modeling and painting side of 40k will be far more appealing to girls than the wargaming side but lets be real the majority of women people see near 40k are probably somebodys S.O. humoring their partner than a individual grill interested in the game itself.

Even that is fairly rare and would be fairly quickly pushed out if there was any sort of serious push of woman into the hobby. It's just that 40k doesn't do anything in particular to attract anyone outside of word of mouth and most of the people doing that are guys.

White Consuls are oart of the Astartes Praeses, guarding the Eye of Terror. They have 2 Chapter Masters, in order to deal with all the shit.

They have a deep system of marines leading mortals in battle as part of a learning process to become an officer of the Chapter.

Their homeworld was overwhelmed at the end of the 41k so they're probably a Crusading Chapter now. Coincidentally, they are among the few chapters that revere the Emperor as a god.

Because 40k, as a whole, is not marketed to a mass audience. The few times it has been it was with marines front and center (DoW and Space Marine particularly). Given how much energy is spent selling marines it seems a stretch to assume that they wouldn't just rebrand a marine to sell to a mass audience if they decided to go that route.

-Getting 3 VP in one turn for assassinate, scour the skies and blood and guts by killing his jetbike wizard dood in glorious close combat with Ghostkeel and drones.
-Heroicly intervene with my Fireblade to sucker punch his dire avenger champion after charging my FW.
-Raining smart missile system fire on his dark reapers

All in all a fun game, which is why I was so surprised he had to win.

Does morale say "we suggest" like the detachment one? No?
Then dont be a retard.

The suggestion IS enforced at most tournaments though, so it might as well be a rule for tournament players.

A "suggestion" from GW is effectively a rule, given that if they think this is best for the game then it therefore is.

Alright stop replying to the retard. It's obviously rules baiting user-kun.

Nah, Morale is obviously a suggestion user.

Just like how the rule that you can't summon after disembarking is.

No, it's not quite that level.
The sexual harassment/near-rape thing seems to be normal club culture now though, its common all over.

I think we're just too old for that shit these days, my wife and I are both in our 30's so....nah. Too much hassle.

A suggestion for organised events. So they think it is best for organised events. Oddly enough, it is a common rule. In organised events

Fast dice rolling is also suggested, or do you enforce it as a rule as well?

Fun thing is that the new DE don't even NEED the bonus CP from taking patrols.

3 Warlords is plenty...2 with the bonus D3 CP's trait, and one with the "every time anybody spends a CP wi get one back on a 6" trait.

CP's out the ass.

Fuck yeah! I don't know why, it shouldn't happen, but my Tau always perform miracles in CC. I was dealing 2 wounds average with 3 attacks. That just shouldn't happen.

But fuck me it's hilariously awesome when it does

You only get 1 warlord per army

2 with the bonus D3 CP's trait
So far they can only have one of those, as they get one Archon, one Haemy and one Succy.

Now if the Succy also gets a CP bonus trait then you're in luck

New DE have a stratagem that lets you give a succ and a haemon each a warlord trait if your "true" warlord is an archon for 1 CP

Incorrect. The bonus warlords strat can be used multiple times. This means that for every CP you have, you can create 2 additional warlords (a haemonculus and a succubus). Every haemonculus can be given the same trait: gain 1d3 additional CP before the battle. For every CP spent, you are guaranteed to get 1 point back. On average, you double your CP if you spend them all on extra warlords.

Thinks his city living is dystopian and disquieting

Try living in the middle of fuck all in the East Anglian country side sometime boyo. You'll find things wildly osscilating between Royston Vasey and Innsmouth.

The number of farmers who are too stupid to realise that the subsidies that keep them alive were from the EU is going to make for a SPECTACULAR display of modern darwinnian pressures in about two years time.

It's going to be like mad fucking max with tractors and an accent that has a pathological hatred of the letter H. I can't fucking wait.
