Iím curious in the battleplan for this list- it mirrors almost exactly my Grey Knight list- land raiders, dreads, PAGK and HQ choices.

Less cost or more models, more models I feel like would not work as one would have to offset it with cheaper units- scouts? Regular space marines are still a bit pricey.

Love the retrim on the power armor and the basing. Your Chaos Army looks great, a true how 40K should be played collection.

I can deal with the power fists, since they are still good in close combat and I'm always trying my best to not put my termies up against dedicated assault units or mobs that will over power me, but losing the 2+ save taking it to a 3+ or even a 4+ is hard.

On the Grey Knight side I'm struggling even a bit more with them- armor save vs. cost. It's really messing with my list.

Fellow battle brothers, how are you playing terminators these days?

I used to be able to rely on that 2+ save against most units, and did my best to avoid any units that would force me to take an invul. save in previous editions.

Now in 8th with the AP, and the fact that most armies can throw up AP -1, my termies are effectively working as regular power armored dudes, which is still OK, but not for the points and unit size. Mass AP -1 seems to be everywhere, or is it my local meta spamming out Necrons, Chaos, and Space Marines.

I also feel for generic terminators shooty is working better since they are just good enough in the assault to compete with dedicated assault terminators, and being able to shoot is s huge boon.

Are centurions the new terminator of 8th?

Well, my blog is up and running, and I've organized my past videos from YouTube- keeping the ones that are still relevant, and converting them to audio/podcast. Every day I'm uploading one to my blog: http://www.wargamerfritz.com .

I'm also close to having an embedded player that will allow you to select tags or a topic and see play/save all the podcasts.

Once that is done (soon) I feel like at least my stuff is not vulnerable like it was on YouTube- next step? Perhaps bundling them into a mega podcast and putting them up somewhere else?

I'm planning on adding a few Primaris dudes to my Red Templar SM chapter- is there a different feel to painting them since they are a bit bigger? Easier to paint? Not that Space Marines are overly hard to paint.

VERY happy to see this model back in play. Games Workshop has done a great job bringing back many of these models. Iím glad I can use it as a Ďsinger and not as a count as farseer. Iím curious about the healing, which will be interesting in a fun list- I canít see the Bonesinger in a stripped down comp list. Will be a nice character to work with my six wraithlords.

Funny how most of the units across all the armies got a boost in the new 8th edition stat changes, but I feel like as a Saim-Hann player jetbikes and vypers were targeted and got made worse armor saves, loss of jink, etc. simply as a knee-jerk reaction because in the last codex they were so over powered and beardy.

They went from so-so in 4th-6th edition, to pumped in 7th, and now worse vs. any incarnation of the game.

I'm hoping that some love comes to the Saim-hann with some HQ choices or unit specific powers that can give us some new tactical twists.

I don' expect the model stats to change.

Bonesinger stats so I can run him proper vs. playing the model as a generic farseer.

Agreed on getting Abby in the list.

Thoughts on the Spawn vs. Heldrake?

I think a Heldrake would work better then the spawn, but where to find the points?

Cultists #'s we don't want to touch- if you are all in you are all in.

An impressive looking mass of models on the table.

I enjoy your models posts and battle reports-every time I see them, I'm like THAT is how 40K is played- nice paint models, great terrain, and a narrative battle.

Thanks for posting!

No word from YouTube, and I suspect there won't be. Just a generic email- account closed, no way to appeal, no way to even reply.

Just wanted to quickly update you guys about my re-launch.

I'm going to continue with my podcasts and get back in the game by streaming them/allowing downloads at my blog HERE: http://www.wargamerfritz.com

I'm using the implosing of my YouTube channel to remaster a ton of stuff, finally build an archive and search of my stuff directly, and let my viewers contact and post directly. Back end stuff is up and running, I'm going to start recording my podcasts this weekend, and the first new post- 40K of course is going to be on Monday 9/18.

Thanks for all of your support, it was KEY in getting me motivated to re-launch and look at this as a chance to not only start new, but do all the great suggestions that you guys have all had over the years.

If you have a blog/youTube channel or know some friends that used to listen to me on YouTube, I'd appreciate it if you would let them know about my new home, and the 'casts moving forward since I can't post on YouTube and have lost all my YT subscribers to contact.

I would agree with the rules and the Dark Imperium starter set for the Space Marines. If you are coming back after a long break from Space Marines, not only has so much in the game changed (for the better), but it is very clear that GW is going to push primaris as the new SM flavor. Current marine players have to figure out how to combine or update their armies, new players and those coming back to the game are free to jump right in and in my opinion go all primaris.
