Ork players want new powerful toys to play with and shake up their lists. I can't say I blame them and hope they get it. to be honest I'd like to see every army get new toys. I'd like to see Orks and Eldar given a range update. I'd like to see Custodes fleshed out to feel like a more complete army (they're a touch bare bones now. I mean their vehicles are ALL handmedown marine stuff) I'd like to see the chaos marine update finished off with a plastic noise marine dex. and ya know, after this release.. I think primaris are in a complete place where I'd be fine if GW stopped with Marines for a bit beyond maybe the odd chapter specific character and upgrade pack for the forseeable future.

wouldn't it be the other way around?
but I digress, I'm cool with them not getting a release for a while. not that I'm keeping up w the(Jones's) new releases, more so that I think they dont really need much more in terms of functioning as Primaris by themselves.

Yeah I usually agree with most of what catbarf says, but it feels like he built his impression on how the list played from reading some posts from the baddies in here who just outright decided it played. The army recaps all describe a list that picked tactical avenues of approach to rush down and chop up everything they could while having enough numbers to not be pushed off objectives easily. All those boys are aimed for getting in combat, not for sitting on objectives, hence the massive investment into buffing their offends with Skarboys / Ghaz etc. This was not a list designed to mill about and try outlast firepower on top of objectives, that’s like the opposite of what he did.

When they first previewed the codex some eagle eyed people spotted that space Marine scouts where listed in the elites section of the TOC. so that could change lists like that up. gone would be the relativley cheap source of troops. with that change Marines cheapest troop is going to be the 17 PPM assault intercessor. meaning marines would need to bare minimum spend 255 points on troops. it's minor, but even as a Marine player I'll be glad to see the days of "3 scout squads as the troops" battle forces gone

it will be a bit odd (although I started space wolves a year back so I've gotten used to it) but yeah I agree. the basic core troop choice of a Marine army should be a Marine.

And before someone asks me about Chaos Marines, I'm of the opinion Cultists should be removed and we should instead get a proper renegades and heretics army

I wouldn't mind rolling Cultists into some sort of "Doctrine" where you get a free unit (they barely do anything) for every troop choice in your army.

Force them to infiltrate to simulate an angry mob or turned PDFs already on the scene.

Along with a DIY system for CSM traits, you could emulate a subversive warband like Alpha Legion with it.

They need a Jump Fight unit.

They need Aircraft.

The models we've been shown but haven't gotten yet, ATV, some sort of non-transport Tank, etc.

They need to figure out what they're doing with Terminators/First Companies.

They need to work on the Imulsor Orbital Bombardment if it's going to be the Vindicator replacement. It's not very good.

Unless they give scouts some sort of pony to trick out, that'll kill them, but - assuming true - was likely a response to all the 3x5 scouts + toys min/max lists. It's too bad, I liked taking a couple 2x10 Power Armor Troops and 1x10 Scout Armor troops

I suspect the new gladiator is intended to be the primaris "replacement" for the vindicator, predator etc. remember they're not doing exact 1 to 1 replacements.

Yeah I looked them up first. I'm not sure either the Valiant or the Lancer is the Vindicator though. If the Heavy Laser Destroyer is eligible for Ordnance rules in future editions, the Repuslor Executioner is even worse than we think.

I had not read that recap when I made my post, mea culpa. I was responding specifically to the implication, as I saw it, that if an army known for aggression and fighting can't fight but can out-attrition on objectives, then it's in a fine place. It looks like that isn't actually relevant so I'll stop tilting at windmills.

What would you guys suggest for armies like Daemons, that don't have quite the access to offensive buffs that Orks do but have cheaper models (well, Daemonettes specifically)?

I've actually had pretty good success with mono-Slaanesh in 9th, but I'm not sure I've been super challenged yet either by a list tailored to beat Keepers (a list with lots of anti-tank shooting that is resistant to charges/has screens/some other issue).

I think we do. I do think that the tactics are very monobuild. The Daemons guy in the thread is talking about how he build the list specifically to the mission pack - which is awesome, imho, don't get me wrong. In competitive play, that sort of advantage is a good get.

I think the main complaint about marines comes from the casual arena, where the mission pack is "eh, whatever, want to just kill each other?" 5 times out of 10, and the army lists are 'hhm, I am playing against Orks, lemme replace this <thing> with <thing> in my handwritten list constructed 15 mins before the game".

That is interesting. How is that handled in your local meta?

In mine we discourage people from list tailoring. "Bring an army as if you don't know your opponent". For missions we roll randomly on the CA2020 table.

I recently started to reroll the missions that have too big of an advantage for the player who goes first (based on the Goonhammer article a few weeks back)

I think this is going to be a very important distinction to make, especially as 9th leans into the Matched versus Crusade mission styles (which are very different) with more and more releases.

This is something my LGS crew has been doing for a while, as particular armies have significant issues in particular missions (the one with the honking null field is one we basically didnt play for the second half of 8th for instance). I expect once plague resolves we'll adapt the approach for 9th, or alter the deployment / first turn.

It isn't handled. I mean, not officially. The club doesn't force people to write their lists at a specific way or time or have any specific mechanism for missions.

I am getting much of my excitement and fun from a local campaign that's using modified Crusade rules to become more escalation-style (so starting at 20pl, going up 5 every two weeks. Now we're at 35, this sunday we go up to 40). It helps that we have space to play as the club is able to rent a huge area where we can set up lots of tables and socially distance once weekly.

NO WAY! DUDE! Orkz with Hundreds of infantry in an edition that prioritizes objectives being held by infantry were able to beat a SM list that had....29 infantry models, 15 of whom were troops with Objective secure. It's almost like this guy built a list to table opponents and lost on objectives because he couldn't hold any of the points.

My Tournament list (Whenever they open back up) is going to be Ork boyz backed up by KFF's and Painboyz. I don't intend to kill much if anything, but you know what? I'll be able to easily plant 30 bodies on an objective with a 5++ and a 6+ FNP.

Skew lists based on objective holding are going to do well because at the moment you have players adjusting to the meta and bringing tons of anti-vehicle units and anti-elite stuff like 300pts of Plasma inceptors which are good but complete overkill vs a T4 6+ save boy who costs 8pts. Those Inceptors are going to struggle to earn back their points shooting at boyz, let alone do anything like take an objective.

There is a chance they are if bikes are core then Eradicators will be, too. It will certainly be a decent slap to Salamanders since they're also losing their re-roll to hit.

You mean no more Shoot Twice? We already know if they aren't CORE rerolls will be few and far between if not entirely absent.

I think it's more likely they are CORE than not CORE though. If Terminators are CORE - and that was one of the example units that would be - then I can't see how Aggressors and Eradicators wouldn't be. If they're the Primaris analog to Terminators they'd need to be CORE, if they're just regular Devs and such in upgraded Armor, they'd still be Core?

You mean no more Shoot Twice? We already know if they aren't CORE rerolls will be few and far between if not entirely absent.

I think it's more likely they are CORE than not CORE though. If Terminators are CORE - and that was one of the example units that would be - then I can't see how Aggressors and Eradicators wouldn't be. If they're the Primaris analog to Terminators they'd need to be CORE, if they're just regular Devs and such in upgraded Armor, they'd still be Core?


depends, terminators are basicly a "super tactical marine" GW might wanna keep the core thing to troops and units that are effectively "vetern troops" but yeah we dunno for sure. My gut is it'll be, for marines, infantry bikes and dreads that have it. because GW has always envisioned those units as the core of a marine army

Opinions are not facts please don't confuse the two
