    And I'll probably be purchasing a codex soon, after I get a new hard drive. For now, I'll just paint my fire warriors.

    Alright, so here is a rather silly question. Considering that I don't really know anyone at the game store, how would one set up for a game?

    I am going to change from Necrons to Chaos (Rubric Marines) because of this change. I am just not comfortable with them anymore.
    As great as rubric marine fluff is... the tabletop world of Chaos is bleak. Fielding rubric marines means you've already lost.

    Sure they have beastly bolters, but it's adding more shooty to a shooty army. What you really need are plague marines...

    BUT the bright side of being a Chaos fan is that 6th ed offers endless promise with a fresh codex.

    The future is so bright my retinas are being burned out in a slaaneshi act of staring into the sun. Wait.. is that right? That's not right...

    if you're ever playing skirmish DON'T PLAY AGAINST CHAOS on difficulties higher than easy unless you want to be utterly raped in the balls by approximately 300 Chaos Marines with Heavy Bolters and a metric fucktonne of Defilers

    Also there is still a somewhat mindless necron army... you know, the ones who have their personalities wiped and they only seek to kill other necron leaders, wipe more necrons and absorb them into a larger army with the sole goal of collecting every single necron (gotta catch 'em all) and killing every single non-necron (noncron)
    I like the new codex but that's like saying "hey, just because GW retconned 50% of the Space Marines into women doesn't mean you can't run an all-man chapter!"

    They are covered in the book a little bit. (Other than the imperial armour books)

    Wrong book, was Dark apostle.

    They always lose

    Edited:

    Which is why the next Imperial Armour is interesting. Imperium usually gets fucked in those + it's about Elysians IIRC, so it should be a double-loss, but they're fighting against Eldar who are buttfucked from here to eternity.

    Also, I hope that orks are updated after the eldar... 4e rules make me sad
    I could not possibly agree more. Orks are no longer the close-combat monsters they used to be with their whopping Initiative of 2.

    I also hear 6th is going to have some interesting wound allocation rules, but it sounds more like wishful thinking than anything. Apparantley, YOU decide where every 5th wound goes, but if it's a Sniper you get to decide where every 2nd wound goes (if you're the shooter).

    A ten foot tall man mountain donned in power armour of the badass variety worshipping gods who like nothing more than to see them die in new and interesting ways.

    As a basic military unit.

    Oh, right! I forgot, you have to build lots of Flayed Ones as well, lock enemy troops in melee with them, kill everything with Warriors and then resurrect everyone with your Lord.

    I REALLY dislike Space Marines. I think they should have taken a severely low-key position in the W40K universe. Instead of there being like, entire armies of them all doing batshit, logic-blowing shit all the time.

    I like the IG, The Tau, The Orks, Tyranids, The Necron etc. but anything remotely related to Space Marines are well, fucking stupid to me. They look stupid, they don't impress me, they're boring.

    I don't dislike Spess Mehrines personally, every game needs a generic race/team, be it SM, Humans, USA, Allied, etc. depending on what kind of game it is.

    Best W40k race is Orcs, hands down. I don't like to play with them, they're opposite to neat and tidy, and I like everything neat and tidy but everything they do is extremely amusing.
    Just think about all those Orc stories about wish-powered space ships or traveling back to kill yourself to get 2 of your favorite guns.

    Not really. They are just used in a different situation rather than being a huge tarpit cheese.

    I like dropping Flayed Ones across enemy army. That locks ranged troops in melee, allows Warriors to pour green death on them while the enemy infantry aren't able to return the fire.
    You really have to use your Lord smartly though.

    The campaign is the same for every race (in dark crusade/soulstorm) so playing as tau gives you the same time/experience/etc as playing as the space marines
