Forget everything else. This is the most effective choice in our arsenal. Far better than Sternguard. Just stick them in a drop pod and watch them blow up tanks left right and centre.

Until 8th drops that is.

Re: 30k noob - Where to start?

You nailed it. The first book is the basic rules for only the Legiones Astartes but seeing as the majority of the 30k players use a Space Marine legion, it might as well be the basic rules. If you were to start playing Mechanicum for example, you wouldn't need it as all the required rules and profil...

Re: 30k noob - Where to start?

Right, so the regular rules are just 7th Edition (for now) Warhammer 40k. So you should be good in that regard. It will be interesting to see what happens come 8th edition but if you know how to play 40k, you know how to play 30k. The Horus Heresy features two dinstinct series of books. On the one h...

Models can only ever take one artifact.

Re: Starting Blood Angels

Ah, yeah. That's good. Some Start Collecting boxes will be nice. And if you then get a dedicated transport for each squad you should be half way to a balanced list no matter the edition.

Re: Starting Blood Angels

I second that but I wouldn't let it deter you from buying models. Don't buy entire formations worth of units but having a bit of everything won't hurt when 8th Edition drops.

Re: Starting Blood Angels

Om paper it's great but the whole game will more or less hinge on you getting first turn and making something like a 10" charge for your squads to get into combat. Else you just get shot off the board. They can be decent against non-competetive lists though. It's lost of fun, just don't expect to wi...

Re: Starting Blood Angels

Nice to see Blood Angels still get new players. Furioso's with frag cannons are your friend, remember that. Other than that, drop pods work really well for your. You can run 5-man Tactical squads with heavy flamers or 10-man Tactical squads with a flamer and heavy flamer and combat squad them. Again...

Re: Dark Angels 1500pt list

Kind of wondering why you're not taking a Scout squad to unlock the Lion's Blade detachment. Just five guys with bolters and camo cloaks is enough and they're fairly useful too! You're already almost there and the jump to overwatching on full BS is huge. I would drop the Interrogator Chaplain to mak...

Re: Need help with black templars 2000pt roster!

Why is your Crusader Squads not in a dedicated Land Raider? It's pretty nice to have obsec land raiders. Also, rather than running two tacticals and a unit of Crusaders I'd run a two Crusader squads armed with chain swords and a power fist whilst giving the Sword Brother a power swords or maul. That...

Doing the Dark Angel thing

So, I've been writing a Dark Angels Ironwing list for 2500 points. At the moment I managed to almost nail it at 2497 points and I think it's fairly decent but I'd like to get some feedback from the more experienced players here. How do you think it'll fare? I am potentially looking at taking this li...

Re: Death Company

You need some plasma/inferno pistols. Beef up your death company before you get lemartes! The way you're playing them here, you might as well run an assault squad with a chaplain. The whole reason you play death company is because they're nasty with upgrades. No. Don't do this. They're power-armour...

Re: Starting Death Guard

I'd definitely go with four. From what I've seen, overkill is rarely a thing in 30k. Personally, I would probably drop the Heavy Flamers on your Cataphractii. Without a transport (or Rite of War that allows them to deepstrike) they're not going to be doing much for you.

Re: Starting Death Guard

You're woefully unprepared for any kind of real armour I'm afraid.

I'd either get some lascannons in there or some chainfists. Preferably both.
