    How'd you make Adrastia the main hero? Are you playing co-op?
    Better question:

    Why isn't he using solely Bern?

    I watched him blow apart 2 Chaos Dreadnoughts by himself with no assistance at level 10 on Cyrene.

    Retribution skill trees and armour/weapon choices were such a let down compared to chaos rising, most of the abilities could've been copy pasted across with a different skill description and i'd have been much happier.

    I remember during the battle against Kyras, I massed a bunch of Imperial guards and had them bayonet charge him just for the epicness.

    Agreed. I just don't get why they took away a lot of the customization. I miss seeing the actual variety in armor, being able to choose both my melee and bolt pistol, etcetera. It was a bad move, imo.

    Any suggestions on how to paint these better? I've just started into this whole painting thing (these are my second unit), so any tips are appreciated. I really hate the way the hair looks, so I plan on repainting that with something like snakebite leather when I can get some.



    Yeah, I know my camera sucks.

    Now since this thread includes fantasy warhammer as well, are we allowed to talk about GW specialist games?
    Because I fucking love Blood Bowl!
    My Chaos Minotaur got doubles on his first level-up roll and I picked "Pro" for him. Pro Minotaurs are the best Minotaurs. Especially when they have Claw and Juggernaut.

    This thread has been kind of quiet lately...

    So, I have decided you guys should be allowed some insight into Aurelian, I'll type out a single chapter, but I'll leave it up to you exactly what I tell you:

    Agree - the intro - Lorgar's realisation of what Fulgrim has become - and the end of the book which involves him a Long talk between the two Primarchs with a twist

    Disagree: Lorgar's encounter with the Avatar (not much going on here I'll be honest)

    Funny: The fate of Argel Tal (Main character of The First Heretic), this one is short.

    Winner A meeting with Magnus, a discussion of daemons and other magical things

    Zing - A battle with a rather important Blood Thirster - short but very very sweet

    Informative - A meeting with a champion of Tzeentch which involves all sorts of paths and futures that may or may not be (involving Lorgar V Guilliman)

    You all have till monday evening to decide

    Easiest way to beat Kyras is with Chaos.

    Just let a Great Unclean One fight him in melee, let the rest support, gather heretics and let them woreship Nurgle to keep everyone healthy

    I usually get used to new codex's and new fluff after awhile of disliking it, but the newcrons don't even feel like necrons anymore. Gone is the whole C'tan thing, but now it is GenericAlienEmpire768, theme: Space Mummies.

    Ugh, I spent a week preparing a competitive anti-Deathwing list to fight my biggest rival with, and then he doesn't show up.

    I guess it means Ill probably get to keep the title of Store Champion for another month, after winning the last season.

    I played this Ork player today instead and wiped the floor with him, partly because he put his Choppa boys in a Fortress of Redemption objective the whole match, leaving his only other troop choice was 4 Nobz (not even with PK's) in a BW.

    In a 3 objective game where my side had two objectives.

    I also beat him with ease thanks to my CC Terminators clearing out his Boys and Warboss, the fact he had no weapon with a strength greater than 8 other than his Warboss, who was camping with the Boys (bad move), and the fact that he moved his BW into the range of a Multi Melta, 3 Melta Guns, and my Typhoon Missile Launcher. He disembarked his 4 Nobz with Big Choppa's and got them to contest one of my objectives. They got gunned down to one unit and Helbrecht promptly finished said unit off while my Land Raider fired at the rear armour of the BW, blowing it up. All he had left was 3 Loota's by turn four, so he conceded.

    I think I buggered up in some places on my tau.

    One commander - One has a controller type thing and a circle thing, probably a grenade. (don't shout at me, was only following the instructions :c)
    There's another controller thing user in the squad, but he has a gun this time.
    Both these two units have the pole thing.

    On my battlesuit, I have the chaingun thing and the plasma gun type thing, and the circle thing and some antenna thing on the shoulders. (X thing is a technical term, really)

    How bad have I buggered up...?

    Came back from a game with my eldar friend who keeps beating me. We had a little fluff story that he stole my relic blade and we've been fighting him to get it back. That game we got back the first part of the sword. Basically what we did was send the Command team straight up, it gets shot and assaulted, Apothecary stood there the hole time not dieing.

    There was the fact that it made my friend so mad because he would sit there, adsorb 20 hits, survive them all then kill 1 guy and win combat. Then theres the fact that I have another tactical squad sitting right outside for when the apothecary dies. And the assault termies, tac squad, and two dreadnoughts sitting on his objective surrounded by the bodies of dead eldar. Oh and my objective was on top a pair of oil tankers which were mined by the scout bikers.

    One guy I know switched to warmahordes because of the newcrons.
    He has a Tomb Kings FB army.

    I don't even know.

    He's not a Slaanesh apothecary.



    Also new theory:
    Charlie Sheen is a lesser daemon prince of Slaanesh.
