General Discussion / Re: 8th Edition Lists
« Last post by Sensenbob on May 10, 2017, 02:11:26 AM »
My lists are generallly pretty balanced with a light Bloodangelic focus on melee , so i think i'll just keep doing what i'm doing and see how it plays in the new edition before changin everything around!
However i'll possibly prepare a Highlander-Style list containing as many different squads and unit-types as possible for testing.

My Build/Paint-schedule hasn't really changed yet due to me being busy with my first Imperial Knight, but maybe afterwards i'll finally find some motivation to finish the half-done but unusable Dreadnought that has been waiting for a too long time now that Dreadnoughts are great again----hopefully. It will be either the Dreadnought or Terrain.


Our private "League" will keep playing out all the scheduled games for this year in the 7th Edition ruleset in Order to not destroy the ranking. So we'll use the new rules only in unranked games until next year. Well, maybe we'll organize ourselves some small events with the new rules since we're all pretty hyped.

General Discussion / Re: 40K 8th Edition Holding Pattern

I've gotten the extra push I needed to actively work on my Ultramarines.  To be honest, Battle Company wasn't my sort of army because while the concept was fluffy, in practice it was nearly as few models as possible instead of representing ten full squads led by a practical Captain.  Now though, Gulliman's changes revealed have him as my next model to buy and throwing out Formations means my precious Tyrannic War Veterans are likely getting the axe and invalidating the old Saint Tylus Formation.  Thinking about the probably unconfirmed rumors of the new starter set, I'm going to have a strong representation of the 1st and 3rd Companies led by the Primarch himself.  Looking at the Battalion Detachment means that I can already plan for that to be my starting point and filling that out properly now, then downgrading as points are revealed.  Three HQs in a Battalion means Captain Fabian, Chaplain Cassius and either a Librarian or Gulliman, depending on Guilliman's role.  Sure the small things like weapon choice are in the air, but considering I'm getting the starter box, have a nice selection of Heavies as is, I'm not worried about weapon choice like maybe I should be.

I think the holding pattern is broken for some armies.  I think we have a decent enough concept of things to get as we move ahead, like Tyranid Warriors are almost certainly going to see play now that things aren't doubled out.  Ork mech units are going to be tough beasts to bring down so Killa Kans might be worth collecting or dusting off.  The new promises in Imperial Guard give us some building blocks to push ahead towards, and though the CSM one was less revealing, we have reason to put paint to model on some units that we might have skipped over for a while now.

I'm taking the opportunity to knock the dust off older units that have had epic models but not so epic rules, get them painted up and tabletop ready.  For example, my Chaos Chosen have seen daylight for the first time in a long time and I'm planning to experiment with those units when the new rules drop.

The Warmaster Escalation League: 500 Points / New Edition=New Escalation
« Last post by MiniTV on May 09, 2017, 06:19:13 PM »
With the upcoming release of the 8th Edition, I think a 500 point escalation league would be a great start. Be it starting a new army or adding an additional chunk to it. I'd like to see it here. I'll definitely be adding a few extra Nids to my Zerg themed army  :P  when I get the new rules.

I am kinda excited about the potential of those international campaigns that they used to have. The players cam continue to write the story. Like the Tyranid/Ork war in the Octave us System. The new crusades of the imperium against chaos and vise versa. Elder doing something for once maybe. Necrons waking up and making an uber empire. Tau spreading the greatest of goods. I'm excited what the future holds

I'm finishing up my AoS Bonesplitterz. last 10 mini's and it'll be 100% painted. Unless I  buy something else for it. I still want a few more heroes for it maybe just a few mode savages. Not much.
I'm starting to think about painting the Harlequins I bought last year. maybe 40+ models maybe a little less I haven't looked at them in months.
I still think about selling my Space Wolves. I've not felt like playing more than one game of 40/30K so far this year... but I'm excited about 8th edition.

My club isn't holding out. We're a quarter of a way through a lengthy league which will overrun the new release. We're sticking to 7th for that and letting 8th games run in the background for a while. Still painting models as I go but I just wish they would hurry up and release the free rules download so we can get a better look at the rules rather than dribs and drabs.

What do you guys think of the new updates coming out for independent heroes? I get why they chose to keep characters from joining squads, but it doesn't make any sense. Also I wonder how a hive tyrant with tyrant guard will work with this new system.
I like it. I get that it doesn't make any sense but I think from the prospective of the "new" rules system it does.
Learning AoS I had to rewire my own thinking. I've played 40K for 20 years some things didn't apply in AoS.
I look at it more and more like a PC game gone analog. I think looking at the rules for what they are and working within that operating system is, well for me that's how I intend to do it. I have to abandon old rules but I don't have to flush everything I already know from stuff you learn playing 40K. Things like shoot the choppy one and chop the shooty ones.  fairly straight forward. I'm going to stop there before I get into some kind of crazy rant. I will say a lot of things Fritz has said over the years in his videos still apply even in AoS.
As far as Characters go though. We just have to relearn how to use them. That's part of the fun.

Discussion: Tyranids / Re: Zerg Themed Tyranid Army

I do have quick question about raveners and thorax Biomorphs. I've scanned my (now useless) codex a few times, but can't seem to find a cost for them. Is it a Codex Errata or something? Cause I'm planning on making some Zerg Lurkers into raveners and was wondering if I could find that info somewhere for the cost
