Dakka Forum: Does 40k still have universal tactics?

Apologies to mods who think I'm flouting the rules, but this thread isn't about how to win with the various armies, but a generalized question about the current state of game play.

When I left the game 15 years or so ago, one of the reasons was that I felt that general tactics no longer applied. The proliferation of lists, and special rules meant that success could often by found by doing things that were totally counter-intuitive. For example, the emphasis on close combat meant that it was more important to get a clear shot for shooty armies than use cover, so I saw IG forces forming up in neatly-spaced lines to inflict maximum attrition as each squad was overrun.

I'm curious as to whether that still the case.

Dakka Forum: Imperium Maledictum - New 40k RPG from Cubicle 7

Announced at Gen-Con.

At Gen Con on Friday publisher Cubicle 7 announced it was expanding its line of 40K-themed role-playing games to include regular humans who, like Nayl and Keeler, work in service to more powerful patrons. Called Imperium Maledictum, this new game was inspired by previous d100-based games published by Black Industries ? including classics like Dark Heresy. The subject of this new game stands in stark contrast to the higher-tier characters available in Wrath & Glory, Cubicle 7?s marquee 40K-themed tabletop RPG. Expect the fights to be close quarters, and the narratives deliciously pulp.

?With Wrath and Glory, you?re more action-focused,? creative director Emmet Byrne told Polygon ahead of the announcement. ?You?re playing archetypes and units from the tabletop . Imperium Maledictum is much more lower-level investigators trying to work against ? or work within ? the mechanisms of the Imperium.?

Players will build their party as a kind of warband, with each of its characters bound to a powerful patron. That patron could be an Inquisitor, like Eisenhorn or Ravenor, or it could be a remember of the Imperium?s powerful religious caste, known as the Ecclesiarchy. Many different options will be made available to players, but the important part is the drive and focus that such a patron will give to an ongoing campaign. They will be responsible for the warband?s quests and objectives as well as the resources they have at their disposal. But they will also invest the characters with the authority they need to break through the Imperium?s crippling bureaucracy.

Mixed emotions over this. I know one of the guys writing for it, and he's worked on tons of the old FFG books (including most of the ones I worked on).

Dakka Forum: The lost child tarot

This card is clearly about the coming of a new primarch. Question is which one.

Blonde hair it could be the lion but is the lion lost? So it could be any of the lost primarchs. However it looks very cherub like so it could be sanguinius. He is lost to all in that he is dead.

Some are saying that the numerals indicate that it?s lorgar but I think GW is more likely to give us Guilliman, the lion, russ and sanguinius as this chapter have the most attention historically and GW is clearly going for 4 demon primarchs (at least)
