so we tend to, justly complain a lot about finecast but.. some isn't THAT bad and actually looks pretty good even now. For your army are there any finecast units or characters that you look at and say "this isn't tooo bad if he's not replaced in the next few years it's no biggy"

For me it'd have to be Njal in termy armor, despite being finecast it's a pretty decent looking model

Dakka Forum: [specuation] Core units for non marine armies?

On the assumption that the CORE keyword and associated restrictions of certain abilities to CORE units only is going to be rolled out over all codexes as they are updated, i'd be intrested to hear what everyone thinks would be/should be the CORE elements of your respective faction army lists:

since i only really have Admech, i'll start their with them:

Troops: well, both types of Skitarii are a given. The battle servitors as well, Breacher and Destroyer....which is basically our entire troops selection anyway.

Elites: if termies are CORE, then we can assume at least some types of Elite infantry should be. the choices for Admech the Secutarii (personally, not likely, as forge world), the Sicarians (possible, but im not sure they'd benefit much) or the Electro priests (given how popular they are, i'd say most likely). Another option would be some new elite footsoldiers to help shift the new Codex, though i doubt it (i'd really like a "arc rifeman" type unit, though, that'd just be cool)

Fast attack: well, we haven;t a known example of a CORE fast attack choice, but given they said that "some" vehicles are core, we might make a baseless assumption that things like bikes might be CORE. Now, the closest equivlent the admech have is the robo-cav, but i dont think they'd get CORE. if anything, i think it might be the Ironstriders and the Dragoons, since they options of the same base kit, and the "original" fast attack options for the Admech. I doubt the Pteraxii are not gonna be CORE, either,

Heavy Support: this is really the intresting one, isnt it? what sort of units are considered CORE heavy support choices? my gut makes me think that SM Devastators are/should be CORE, but admech dont really have a equivalent option. The Dunecrawler is right out becuase we know SM tanks are not CORE, and the Kastellen Dakabots are not likely either. i think we may simply ...

Dakka Forum: How do Ork players feel about the meta?

Forum post by Alwrath, 43 responses at time of this post.

So, after a big second place GT win after crushing 2 Space Marine armies ( Ultra Marines, Blood Angels ), how do Ork players feel about the current meta? Are you happy that Orks are strong in 8th/9th edition? Are you glad the green tide is strong right now? How many Space Marine armies have you killed at your local meta? I honestly am considering ebaying my Primaris in favor of Orks atm, the PA book and codex look amazing, and I honestly cant wait to see what the 9th edition codex brings to the green players since 8th/9th has proven they are already an amazing army to play, especially in objective games. :thumbsup:

Dakka Forum: 40k: Descendant Degeneration

The story of Humanity in the dark future is the descent of Man into fanatic barbarism: The story of a fall from shining heights of power, knowledge and bliss in ancient times, to a present nightmare of ignorance, misery and slaughter.

Descendant Degeneration

"Ancient Man lived a life free of hardship and deprivation, for he had built himself an abundant paradise and banished what was ill in life. In these gardens sprawling across the stars, Man did not kill Man, and Man did not abduct Woman, and Man did not beat Child, for all lived a life of bliss. Hope reigned supreme, a hope sprung from Man's great achievements, and Man worshipped his own high knowledge.

For Man had utterly mastered nature, and his craft and cunning tapped into the very powers of creation itself. And Man of Gold had created Man of Stone to work for him, and Man of Stone had in turn created Man of Iron to work for him. And thus this earthly trinity of Man bestrode the stars like a colossus, and Man stood strong and unchallenged by mortals. And Man dared the cosmos to best him, and for a time nothing in the heavens answered his challenge, and Man concluded that nothing holy existed, and even if divinity did exist, then Man's might was far superior.

Yet Man's own arrogance rose to meet his challenge, and in his hubris Man was cut down by his own creations. Man of Iron turned on Man of Stone, and when Man of Stone had fallen did Man of Iron turn on Man of Gold. A great slaughter across the stars ensued, and Man barely survived the war in paradise which he had brought upon himself.

Yet even so Man's hubris and unbelief persisted, for Man still clung onto the remains of his estates, and Man was determined to rebuild and rise higher than ever before. The devastation had been great, yet Man stood triumphant even against the might of his own treacherous cra...

Dakka Daily Poll: What is your opinion on measuring distances in wargaming.

What is your opinion on measuring distances in wargaming.
Every measurement must be exactly perfect every time, if you move a space marine 6.01 inches in his movement phase you are cheating.
As exact as possible, the game will take a lot longer, but it will be worth it in the end.
Try to be exact, but don't sweat the little stuff, especially in the first turn or 2.
Measure exactly for the first guy in the unit, then just arrange the rest so they are in roughly the correct position around him.
Eyeball it.
Just put your guys where ever, we assume superhuman space marines can manipulate the space-time continuum.
To cut out all the boring tactical positioning stuff we just arrange our troops in melee at the start, no measurements needed.

Dakka Forum: After MOAR MARINES, what kits should GW prioritize in 2021?

Posted: 2020-09-17 07:59:07
Forum post by Kid_Kyoto, 67 responses at time of this post.

So yes, there will be MOAR Marines, and that ain't gonna change.

But beyond that, if you were in charge what specific kits would you make a priority for 2021?

For me the most glaring hole is the IG line. Most of the regiments are OOP, Catachans are mail order only and both plastic sets are old enough to join the army themselves.

My hope is for a Necromunda-like release with each regiment getting an infantry kit.

What else should GW prioritize replacing and expanding?

Dakka Forum: Is the 9e rulebook creepy?

I just got my copy of the 93 rulebook and in the actual rules section bit, did anyone else find those like aborted festuses attached to bolt guns creepy? I mean I've gottne used to the cyber cherubs and the ammorium cherubs, but those fetus bolters were just at the edge of what I could look at without cringing.

Honestly, that looked like stuf ol' fabius should be working on, not the imperium.
