    New Assassin rules from WD

    I like your analysis. I agree that vehicle-heavy lists are the worst match-up for an assassin, but I still can't think of a list that would prefer to have 1 extra CP instead of a unit that can easily grab Linebreaker, contribute to Recon, and generally camp objectives / be annoying. The Culexus is definitely the best for this "keep-away" role.

    The only nobs you have faced are those in boyz squads and we have only played once. So, no. I have not. S5 yes as they are that but not T5 as I thought only thought meganobz were that.

    You forget, if your assassin kills a character you can spend a CP and get 2 back so 1 character kill and it pays for itself. Kill a second another phase or turn and boom 2 CP profit

    I realize it's 1 CP and an 85pt deficit. But I still can't think of a compelling scenario where you pick that over the wild card. Also, the idea that an assassin loses "auto-include" status because of one's local meta is a straw-man argument. If you're building a TAC list, it's clearly better to have the wild card than not. And I still can't think of an army composition that would function better without the wildcard than with it.

    Depends how elite they are going. 1 CP is a lot if you can't fit the battlalion or brigade into your list. My Deathwing keeps running into challenges to this end. GK would likely face similar problems. Deathwatch isn't cheap either. Additionally, none of the assassins are very well equipped for anti-tank (and the like) combat. Regarding choice of assassin, the vindicare is nice unless your opponent also has one - then it's viability is reduced to who goes first. Additionally, the Vindicare can't fire into close combat (this edition), so if the opponent's list is able to engage in turn 1 charges, Vindicare might be a bad choice (Vindicare really sucks in melee). Vindicare's shooting now wounds based on the strength of the weapon vs non-infantry, and now requires additional CP for turbo penetrator rounds (which became dramatically worse), so against armies that don't feature a lot of INFANTRY, he's definitely lacking. For example of where the Vindicare isn't viable: Vindicare vs TAU Crisis Commander (at range). Vindicare hit's on 2s, wounds on 4s (crisis suits are not INFANTRY), and then the attack is transferred to a Drone on 2+ (which discounts the entire attack and instead deals a single mortal wound to the drone). Even without the drones, he only wounds 50% of the time. And with the drones, he's near worthless. Regarding the other assassins. Eversor remains a nice suicide unit, but suffers if he can't get to the enemy. He's also the least protected. Culexus got a pretty substantial change over the index version, as their psychic abomination rule is now friend or foe (index version only affects enemy psykers). So armies that don't have their own psykers will like the Culexus, but he's kinda a liability for Imperium armies that use psykers of their own. Callidus remains pretty impressive too. Though, like the vindicare, is really focused on opponents of a certain build (like infantry). Neural shredder took a pretty huge nerf. Reign of Confusion would be pretty annoying for CP heavy opponents.

    SpaceORK's Orks... n' other armies.

    Because I didn't think of that clever name? Also the way I play orks is not fun for opponents. Chewing through 250+ "fearless" models as they keep racking up points off objectives is a draining experience. And I just dont have the models to play any other way. I promise I will have more orky content in the future as I love the little green hooligans!

    SpaceORK's Orks... n' other armies.

    Finally got down to the FLGS. Opponent was more casual but wanted to try a more competitive game in preparation for a local tournament. His list, written with what models he had and what my list was; 3 squads of dev squads with a mix of hb, missiles and Las cannons. Bobby G, Chronos, tech priest, 3x 5 intersessors, 2x assault cannon Razorbacks, anti airplane rhino, flag guy and a knight. My list; 3x gallants, 2x helverins, 2x vultures, "loyal 32" but with 45 models. My deployment. His deployment. So because I needed some info/practice playing a uphill battle, we played to his advantage. Hammer & anvil, same itc secondarys for both of us but to his advantage, +1 to roll and he chose table sides. Still I won the roll and he didnt sieze. My turn 1. Advanced all the knights who all rolled 5+ for advance. Excellent... Moved some guard. Shot the helverins and vultures, removed 1 unit of devs with the vultures (2+ marines are a pain with 0ap) and did a awesome 6 wounds with the helverins to a razorback. So I use a strat to charge after advance, make it and put 5 wounds on a razorback.. 😕 Well great. His turn turn one. He leaves combat with the knight and absolutely lights him up. 18 wounds come through. He also moved Bobby G up to ensure he could finish off the knight. He takes some shots at other things does a few wounds here and there. Bobby G charges and finishes off the first knight. Tied 5-5 at the end of turn 1. My turn 2. Move up the vultures. Shoot the helverins and vultures. Primaris in cover is an annoyingly difficult thing to remove. Only kill 5. However two knights make their charge into Bobby G. Oh this doesn't go well for him. Bobby G tanks wounds like a boss, interrupted and slays a knight. Well... [expletive]. Second knight does manage to deal the 9 wounds to Bobby G and he fails his 4+ ... and the reroll! Heck yea! His turn two, a good round of shooting severely wounds the third knight and a vulture. Honestly not much happened here. Still tied I believe at around 10-10. So turn 3 for me and this is when it starts to go downhill for me. I fail to kill a single primaris marine and a razorback with one left. This doesn't net me two points and allows him to get back on an objective. Didnt know it at the time but this is the game right here. He obviously kills the knight and I have to go hard mode with just the catachan to score points. Sadly for me it's just not enough. I lose 29-27. Man, had I just killed those two units it woulda been 29-28 my win. But that's ok! Learned a bit, and the other guy was stoked cause he never really gets the W.

    You don't stay in it... battle wagons have enough transport to put characters inside and grots or ten lootas and grots hop out and do what you do ie just use the sheer size of the thing sideways to hide the kff from the assassin. Going second is gonna suck at the knife edge of meta. It is about target saturation or lack thereof to force your opponent into bad decisions. It is tough but meta changes swing wildly depending on your force.

    Battle Sister Bulletin

    osted 18/02/2019 Battle Sister Bulletin: Part 1 – Adepta Sororitas Iconography Welcome to your very first Battle Sister Bulletin! As promised in the Las Vegas Open Warhammer Preview, we’re going to be keeping you up to date throughout the entire process with all the latest developments as the new miniatures range takes shape. In our inaugural bulletin, we’ll be taking a look at some of the concept art that has helped to define the iconography across the new range. One of the most integral features of Warhammer 40,000 is the iconography that helps define each faction (apart from the Tyranids – though we’re sure that the Hive Mind probably experimented with bio-banners at some point…). From the symbolic allegiance denoted by the Imperial Aquila to icons such as the blood drop of the Blood Angels or the skull rune of Khorne’s followers, such imagery is an intrinsic part of Warhammer 40,000. When it came to redesigning the Adepta Sororitas range, the iconography was, therefore, one of the first aspects that the design team looked at. Here is a selection of some of the earliest concept sketches, and they feature an interesting juxtaposition within them. Many contrast softer themes such as wings, angels and flowers with stronger, more aggressive ones – the roses are complemented by thorny briars and clenched fists, while the ornate chalices are accompanied by skulls, swords and flames. The iconic fleur-de-lys – the unifying symbol used by the Adepta Sororitas and the non-militant orders that support them – also regularly appears throughout. Of course, each Order of the Adepta Sororitas has its own iconographical nuances too. As the spiritual inheritors of the Daughters of the Emperor, the Order of the Ebon Chalice, for example, take much of the inspiration for their iconography from their part in the execution of the traitorous High Lord Goge Vandire. Images such as severed heads and relic blades are clear references to the violent, but storied, origins of the Order. Once the Adepta Sororitas iconography has been conceptualised, it can help to influence some of the details on the miniatures themselves. These themes may eventually feature on their armour, banners, wargear and transfer sheets, or even in their artwork, though the purpose of concept art is to inspire rather than dictate. We hope you enjoyed your inaugural Battle Sisters Bulletin. Let us know what you’re most looking forward to learning about the new range on the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page. We’ll see you in two weeks!

    Been watching some old Vincent Price movies lately, and I was struck by a thought that would have been pretty cool. Unfortunately, when I went and looked it up, he and Alan Rickman were never in anything together.
