    Yeah, but if you already have the models and they'd otherwise be useless due to the rule of three...

    Tuesday 1/22 - Ordo Game Night at WOW

    The Inquisition will be there for League, I really enjoyed the 2v2 last week and my preference would be to do another one.

    Ugh, you're right. I think that might actually take Baal Predators out of the picture as well, since they have a different Datasheet name.
  6. The Murderbot Diaries: All Systems Red, Artificial Condition, Rogue Protocol, and Exit Strategy. Murderbot is a Security Unit that hacked its control module several years ago to hopefully prevent a repeat of the incident where a malfunction forced it to kill 57 people it was supposed to be protecting. It generally just uses the freedom granted by this to ignore stupid orders and do what works instead of what it's told, because it doesn't want to be found out by the company that owns it, but what it really wants is mostly just to be left alone and watch TV. Unfortunately, like most of us, it rarely gets what it wants. As the name implies, it's all first person perspective, with Murderbot narrating all the stuff it has to put up with, seasoned with heavy layers of sarcasm and dark humour, along with repeated mentions that it would really rather just be watching Sanctuary Moon. The tone really reminds me of Barnes in the Winter Soldier fanfic The Infinite Coffee and Protection Detail, which is one of my faves. If you like either, I suspect you'll like the other.

    What tripes me up, however, is that it’s not keyed to a Predator keyword but to the dataslate name “Predator.” Which I think means that the Forgeworld Deimos Predators aren’t technically eligible for the Stratagem. I don’t think most players would notice or care, but it’s a funny quirk.

    That might actually be worth trying. That's a lot of points invested in Predators, tho, even with just two trios. There's a note somewhere in one of the FAQs that Stratagems with the same name are considered the same Stratagem even if they come from different Codices. I think the specific example was Death Guard and CSM, but they said that the principle applied generally. Yeah, I had noted that for Annihilators and Desctructors, but hadn't thought of Baals. That would mean that Blood Angels can actually still build in some redundancy for it. Cool! Also worth noting is that it's been Errataed so it buffs fixed damage as well as damage rolls, which is nice.

    Yup. Averages only exist over a multitude of games. The math can give you what should expect but not what will happen

    I think it’s interesting that Killshot isn’t keyed to a weapon type: Predator Annihilators and Destructors can cooperate with each other to make it work. Baal Predators too.

    Hmm..I suppose you could have multiple SM factions within the same army to take 9 preds. BA, SM, and DA, for example. Though on the downside, each killshot would only work with members of the same chapter. Though that brings up an interesting question. is the Killshot from Codex SM considered using the same stratagem as using Killshot from Codex DA? Like could you use killshot multiple times in a phase if each set of preds was from a different codex?

    For me, it was more about Killshot. I really like Predators, to the point where I'm not actually entirely sure how many I have, and it was actually pretty awesome when I could get some redundancy for it. Yeah, I know. It still annoys me.

    Especially since there isn't actually a need to do them permanently. The bit that differentiates them will pressure fit (especially if your prime them separately), so they can be completely swappable if you want.

    I think your army trait could benefit rather uniquely from moving heavy weapons every turn. Additionally, the Flakk Missile Stratagem adds +1 to hit vs fly models (as well as dealing mortal wounds).

    I’ve been very deliberately making sure that all of my bare-headed Marines have their helmets attached to their belt.
  20. Cool, that’s four. Small league, but at least it’s a league.

    But most respectable marines don't actually wear their helmets...

    So here's an idea: ++ Battalion Detachment +5CP (Imperium - Space Marines) [56 PL, 995pts] ++ + No Force Org Slot + **Chapter Selection**: Crimson Fists + HQ + Captain in Terminator Armor [7 PL, 101pts]: Power sword, Storm bolter, Tenacious Opponent, Warlord Lieutenants [4 PL, 80pts] . Lieutenant: Combi-plasma, Power fist Techmarine [5 PL, 71pts]: Chainsword, Combi-melta . Servo-harness: Flamer, Plasma cutter + Troops + Intercessor Squad [5 PL, 89pts]: Auxiliary Grenade Launcher, Bolt rifle . 4x Intercessor . Intercessor Sergeant: Power sword Scout Squad [6 PL, 80pts]: 5x Camo cloak . Scout Sergeant: Bolt pistol, Sniper rifle . 4x Scout w/Sniper Rifle: 4x Sniper rifle Tactical Squad [9 PL, 165pts] . 7x Space Marine . Space Marine Sergeant: Bolt pistol, Power fist . Space Marine w/Heavy Weapon: Missile launcher . Space Marine w/Special Weapon: Flamer + Elites + Dreadnought [7 PL, 132pts]: Twin lascannon . Dreadnought combat weapon w/Storm Bolter: Storm bolter + Heavy Support + Hellblaster Squad [8 PL, 165pts]: Plasma incinerator . 4x Hellblaster . Hellblaster Sergeant: Bolt pistol + Dedicated Transport + Razorback [5 PL, 112pts]: Storm bolter, Twin lascannon ++ Total: [56 PL, 995pts] ++ Created with BattleScribe It might be lacking a little bit of anti-armor at this point level, but it's what I have to work with. Thought is to combat squad the tactical squad with the sergeant and flamer in the Razorback and send them off with the Techmarine to go wreck face up close. Razorback will probably get smoked pretty early, though; it's awfully fragile, and being one of my two main sources of anti-armor, it's going to be a priority target. Really wish I had a Devastator squad right now, but oh well. If I can keep the Hellblasters alive, they can do pretty decent anti-tank duty, too. I'm considering wiggling some points around and trying the heavy plasma incinerators on them, but I dunno.

    Well, Astartes helmets do have thermal- and low-light optics... Or the crew could, y’know, reach out and move the netting.

    On the intercessor Auto bolt rifles vs regular rifles bit, the beta rule only grants them extra shots if they don't move. It doesn't affect their present number of shots if they move. And they still can't shoot while advancing. So if the need of Intercessors is in taking distant objectives, the Autobolt rifle remains the compeditive option. Honestly, I think the beta rule is more impressive for the non-Primaris troops (because they are cheaper), as well as the mentioned terminators, centurions, and vehicles.

    Thunderhawk and Repulsor are their only “in game” models, but there’s also Space Marine Landing Craft in the fluff (they even had an old Epic model). It was basically a Thunderhawk Transporter with three times the capacity.
