Would someone be so kind as to list which units from the Mechanicum book can be fielded in some way by Marine Legions?

There are Legion Consuls for leading Thallax and Castellax maniples. Most legions can ally in optional Mechanicum detachments.

Oooh thanks I failed to spot the non-Marine entries in the ally matrix. Time to "buy" some Vulturax.

So is the Legion Sabre coming to plastic as well? It's listed as completely sold out and has been so for several months at this point. Some folks on various net forums are claiming that pictures of the tank in the new material and books look different enough that it may be getting the plastic treatment? Thoughts?

It would be weird that they would debut the model(2yrs ago?) make a resin mould then promptly replace it with plastic.

But I'd be all down for a couple Sabres to supplement my Kratos & Predators.

This was my thought as well, but the whole kit hasn't been available for some time. Personally I'd like to see the entire line from the top down come to plastic.

Probably on it's way at some point, for now, with it being hard to come by, if one were to perhaps look up the word "shiv" on various stl related websites they may find certain things that might work in the interim.

Bought my first kit off Ebay for my Sons of Horus - a 10-man squad of Mk VI. The overall idea of this army is going to be a freshly raised, Inductii formation of mechanized infantry and armor. So, I'm thinking Armored Spearhead.

Spoiler:
The 142th Armored Battalion was an independent armored unit of the Sons of Horus legion. It was composed primarily of Inductii newbloods, raw recruits pressed into defense of their home. Raised on Cthonia during the siege of that world by the VIIth Legion, Imperial Fists, the 142th showed great valor and courage in the line of duty. Ultimately, however, the formation was destroyed in a massive battle of armor and mechanized infantry on the Kurs volcanic plains of its homeworld.

I think it's quite neat that a lot of new people are going to be getting into HH and the newest release also happens to be the newest set of armour. It's sort of like they're new recruits being given shiny new gear.

I wanna field a bunch of Sabres too, a 14" move tank sounds abour right for White Scars. But I'm not too fussed, it's so small it can be printed in one piece even on a regular size resin printer.

Good for you. Do you want a sticker or something?
I was making a joke in regards to MkVI being the armour given to the newer recruits in the Legions chief, didn't need you to defend the honour of the older marks.

Unfortunately, in the Hobby and here on DakkaDakka in particular, when people enjoy something, they cannot imagine, let not accept, that someone else doesn't care. It's called toxic positivity and it really shows with behaviors like that
But don't worry DakkaDakka is a wonderful place filled with incredible stuff and people, welcome to 30k !

I'm going to have to disagree with you there. That is not toxic positivity. Toxic positivity is when you get collectively ostracized for expressing any sort of critique. Getting downvoted en masse on Reddit for expressing critique is a textbook example of toxic positivity. However, this does not apply to Dakka where you cannot downvote posts.

I keep seeing "toxic positivity" being used to try and shut down basically any and all positive statements lately. It's getting a bit silly.

We can collectively ostracize without downvoting posts just fine, thank you very much.

Yeah it's not like we had people saying in this very thread, essentially, that criticism of 30k was somehow off topic or that merely being enthusiastic about new plastics for 1.0 wasn't sufficient, one must also play 2.0 or have their ability to decide for themselves what they enjoy entirely revoked. Dakkaites basically telling me I can't post in my own thread unless I conform to their opinions of 2.0, like this was the crusade and heresy facebook group or something


So anyway, GW, those transphobes, are at it again pretending the stupid drop bunker was always a 30k thing... and they still gave it armour 12, because 2.0 is them totally turning over a new leaf or something

Then there's the 1 wound attack bikes... oof

Stormlord has a lower transport capacity than a rhino now.

I see we're still saying that being told that "criticizing the game without playing it leads to shallow criticism based on how you think something works without seeing if your feelings lined up in with how it actually works" is the same as being told "criticism of 30k is off topic".

Good job.

You don't need to play to know 1 wound attack bikes is dumb and bad and stormlord super heavy transports with less capacity than a rhino isn a "wait and see" kinda thing, that's just bull poop. "This iron is less hot, I swear" "This cow fecese tastes good, I swear" like dude the FREE rules are bad, why would I pay to play something that looks bad to me? Every cent I'd have to spend on bad rules is money I wouldn't be spending on nice new plastics models. All loss, no gain on my part. Saying I couldn't possibly assess the changes without playing is just not true, fren. Here I am almost done a plastic spartan having not played 2.0 or intending to making a list for 1.0, no one can stop me it seems

Then don't play it, its not that complicated. If you want to be a petulant child turning your nose up at the plate of scrumptious ethnic cuisine on your plate, insisting you don't like it without ever having tasted it before, then by all means continue to stick to your chicken nuggies with a side of fries.

No one claimed that you need to check every single thing, but you've made claims about the reaction system but refuse to play and see how it works in practice.
