Dakka Forum: I really wish GW would clean up their mess of FAQs.

Example, this question is in the CA18 FAQ

Q: Do units that do not ?take up slots in a Detachment? (e.g. Death Cult Assassins, via their Ecclesiarchy Battle Conclave ability) allow you to exceed the maximum number of allowed slots for a Detachment? For example, a Patrol Detachment only allows for two Elites units. Can I exceed that by including a third unit with a similar ability?
A: Yes, unless the Detachment is an Auxiliary Support Detachment: their Restriction allowing only a single unit is not bypassed by such units.Why in the name of Gork and Mork is this question hidden away in the CA18 FAQ and not in the main rulebook FAQ? This applies to a fair amount of armies. It's already bad enough that we have important core questions spread out over now 4 FAQs (Designers Commentary, Stepping into a New Edition, Rulebook FAQ and now CA18 FAQ) but several codex FAQs have important answers that should apply to all armies but technically don't (such as the Extra Relics/Stratagems answers in the Death Guard FAQ).

Is it too much to ask for even a base level of competence when it comes to this? We're already being fleeced on the rules and models.

Dakka Forum: If you could reboot any Army, how would you do it?

The subject says it all. And it's probably been discussed before, but I may as well fire it up and see what ideas other people have out there. Essentially, you can rebuild/reboot any army- mechanics and all- perhaps even the model styles or what-have-you... so what would you change?

First off, I'd like one little 'broad' change.

I think the first thing I'd do is just make all Space Marines- Primaris or Non-Primaris... all one thing. All Space Marines of all flavors and loyalties- would have 2 wounds, with obvious point adjustments so they'd be capable of taking their full arsenal. I'm personally fine with the larger Primaris-scale, and I've always wished Space Marine scale creep was about ten years faster. I'd be okay if Games Workshop released upgrade kits with larger legs to go with original torsos and make them larger than they are now. Of course, I'd want them to say that 'any space marine model you have is still valid', because I understand the attachment some people have to the older, 'squattier' Marines. Because I really can't get into the Primaris Lore, but the models are pretty great and I actually enjoy using them more than I thought I would.

The other thing I'd like to see change? Chaos Space Marines.

I've always felt like the way the Traitor Legions, Renegade Warbands, and Heretic Astartes are presented in fluff and fiction doesn't match up with the way they are on the tabletop. CSM always seemed like they would be a bit more like Deathwatch- by that, I mean a group of veteran-tier Marines with mix-and-match weapon loadouts. I kind of always pictured them as having to be bit more vicious, cunning, and resourceful- and therefore, those of them that are still around in a warband have gotten there more by their own skill and guile- each individual CSM would be a sort of individual character in his own way, much like Deathwatch Mari...

Let's make a hypothetical situation... neither money nor time are an issue, which new mono army would you buy and paint (no soup)? It doesn't have to be for competition... could just be a fluffy army you've been wanting to build (you'll see some that appear to be doubled up on the list, but they are only there if they have a specific set of armor for all of their models for example)

I"m curious which you all would pick.

These aren't on the main site yet but here are the links:

Vigilus: https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/warhammer_40000_imperium_nihilus_vigilus_defiant_en-1.pdf

Chapter Approved 2018: https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/warhammer_40000_chapter_approved_2018_en-1.pdf

Funny stuff:

* They NERFED Haarken Worldclaimer by changing this ability to only affect <BLACK LEGION> Raptors. So.. they took an already bad character who would barely see play and made him even worse. :facepalm:

* No changes to Knight Castellans

* Chaos Terminators are still inexplicably 5 points more than loyalists for no reason

* In the CA FAQ someone actually asked this question:

Q: If the Acceptable Casualties rule is being used in the mission,
and I concede, does my opponent still win the battle?
A: Yes.

:facepalm:

Dakka Forum: Tank melee. WHY DOES IT EXIST?


Posted: 2019-01-13 22:59:07
Forum post by deotrims 16th, 36 responses at time of this post.

How does a tank fight in melee please tell me. I think they should be able to use their sponsoon weapons as that was why they were used in WWI as the enemy was always very close to you. I also think they should be able to shoot at targets within 1 inch non fighting phase wise and withdraw from combat without the no shoot penalty because with infantry they can't escape as they are blocked but the tank can just run the infantry over.
