Dakka Forum: Dakka (Unofficial) Painting Challenge Round 46 December 2018: Open Round


Posted: 2018-12-09 14:59:07
Forum post by Paradigm, 36 responses at time of this post.

Welcome to the 46th round of the Unofficial Painting Challenge! For the unfamiliar, the challenge is a friendly competition open to any Dakka members, whether you're painting your first model or your 1001st! The more rounds you enter, the more points you accrue based on a public vote, and these are tracked in a League Table over the course of the year.

This month, there is no theme, as it's an Open Round. So whether you're painting hurriedly between festivities, making an early start on Christmas presents or even painting up a gift for someone else, this is the chance to pick whatever minis you like (all other rules still applying) and flex your creative muscles.

How To Enter
- You may enter up to 5 MODELS as a SINGLE ENTRY, and are permitted one entry per member per month. If you enter multiple models, they should ideally be related in some way, such as part of the same squad, unit or scene if you are doing a diorama
- You MUST post a 'proof' picture of your entry in the thread of the state it was in before you started working on it; this must be either unassembled, unpainted, primed or coated a single colour. Entries that do not submit a valid Proof Picture will not be eligible for voting.
- After this, you may post WIP pictures in this thread and your own if you wish, and on completing the entry, you may post up to 6 final pictures IN THIS THREAD that will then be used for voting. Please note that pictures in a montage or collage picture will be considered individual images for this purpose, so while these types of presentation are certainly acceptable, please keep the image limit in mind when compiling them. For example, a collage of 5 images and one separate image would count as your 6 picture allowance.


So What Do I Win?
- Points... and points mean... bragging rights for the next month! Following the vote, points will be awarded to every en...

Dakka Forum: GW vastly overvalues 6+++ faction rules


Posted: 2018-12-09 10:59:07
Forum post by Slayer-Fan123, 36 responses at time of this post.

This was a thought I had since we started receiving codices.

It seems that, when GW throws out rules, sometimes factions get multiple bonuses depending if the bonuses aren't too strong. What's incredibly common though is that any faction with a 6+++ bonus doesn't get that. It's only an extra wound here and there basically.

I feel it's part of GW not knowing how much durability should cost, and then they suddenly end up being weaker because of it (with no stacking for whatever reason).

I just wanna hear if people agree with my assessment.

Dakka Forum: Chapter approved actually nerfed grey knights.


Posted: 2018-12-08 07:59:07
Forum post by Jaxler, 36 responses at time of this post.

Grey knights have been nerfed by chapter approved. The buffs to things like plasma, making it even more accessible than ever has left grey knights in a very bad spot. It is also worth noting that almost all of the points drops for grey knights were too little and honestly did nothing generally. The army is essentially now guardsmen plus draigo and 2 3++ dreadknight grand masters. Everything else is horrible, and of you play a fluffy grey knights list, look forward to getting tabled turn one by tau or guard.

Grey knights winning at points drops was a good joke, warhammer community.

Grey knights have been consistantly nerfed by rules changes for 3 editions straight. I don't get why GW hates us so much. It feels like I should just give up on the army ever being in as playable a spot as my tau, where I dont look through my codex going "I guess only two things here arent unplayable"

P.S. Good to see the inquisition is still dead.

Dakka Forum: RnH Militia and Point Costs

Forum post by Sir Heckington, 36 responses at time of this post.

So I just noticed this looking at CA rumours and leaks, and I noticed

The discounted plasma cost is for units with BS4+

The normal cost is all other

Therefore, Militia at BS5+ get the regular plasma instead of the cheaper plasma technically...

I'm not reading this wrong, am I? I get the RAI, but it just seems silly if it works that way RAW.

Dakka Forum: Formations - A Slippery Slope To 9th Edition


Posted: 2018-12-08 01:59:07
Forum post by Commissar Benny, 36 responses at time of this post.

For those unaware, formations are returning to warhammer 40k in 8th edition:
https://i.imgur.com/t0OyChU.png

What are formations you ask? Essentially they are benefits for certain units provided you fulfill certain prerequisites.

"What is wrong with that?" Everything.

While the Imperial Fists siegebreaker cohort is quite tame compared to what we witnessed in 7th edition, it is the first step off a cliff for which the only solution is introduce an entirely new edition. This formation will be the first of many. In the months/years to come more formations will be introduced for every army. Are you seeing the problem yet?

Formations dictate what your army/list will consist of. Instead of unlimited possibility & a wealth of creativity you will be confined to play list (x), (y), (z), especially in the competitive scene. Take the above example. Any competitive Imperial Fist player will be using it. For 1 CP they gain access to 2 additional strategems, a relic, a warlord trait. They only work on captains, centurions, dreadnaughts & vindicators apart of the cohort detachment.

"What is wrong with that?"

Maybe you're a competitive Imperial Fist player who doesn't particularly want to use those codex entries in your list. Too bad. If you want to win, you will use those entries. Here is the impact that has on the community. Now when facing off against an Imperial Fist player & having unlimited possibilities to plan for, you can expect some variation of list (x) filled with units who benefit from the detachment to maximize its effectiveness. This will be true of all armies given time. It dictates how we as players play the game. I'll give you an analogy. Lets say you play a video game like League of Legends. The developers release an update that says if you use hero (a) & equip them with item combinat...
