Hey guys, I'm coming back to 40k after playing Necrons and a little of Nids in 5th. I wanted to start a new army with the new edition so here I am with DA. I've never played marines before, so this is my first shot at a list in a couple years but here goes:
Since I myself have had trouble tracking down reliable review of the Necron codex in 6th edition, I decided I would dive in and make one myself!
I'll be using a rating system of x/10, with 10/10 being the best unit in the codex. However this review will be different in that I will...
Hi In the army list entry for Daemon Princes on page 94 in the new codex it states:
may take items from the Chaos Rewards and/or Chaos Artifacts sections of the wargear list.
But when I look at the Chaos Rewards(p67) and Chaos artifacts (p69) sections they dont seem to have points...
Ok so the main things I take advantage of in this list are the new artillery rules, the force organization chart doubling, and Burna Boyz in Trukkz (yes I know they cant start in them)
Big Mek 85
2 units of 12 "shoota" boyz 244...
Company Command Squad x2 (In Chimera's)
8 plasma guns
2 masters of ordnance
Storm Trooper Squad (5 man squad deep striking)
2 melta guns
Veteran Squad x3 (In Chimera's)
9 plasma guns
3 laser cannons
5 multi lasers
5 heavy bolters
I played IG all through 4th, and then dropped the army in 5th Ed. due to picking up Daemons and a deep disdain for all transport armies. (5th Ed was a long 4 years)
Now with 6th Ed. out I'm very happy with the new vehicle rules, as well as the rules in general, and am trying to relearn my army...
Title says it all.
Guns are the way to go for 6th. Tyrannofexes are almost compulsory, Dakkafexes have become better, heck even Biovores have their worth. With Fleet getting partially nerfed and more concentration on shooting, have our big babies become obsolete? Are they worth it?
With the demise of 5th ed I’m putting on my rose-tinted glasses and looking optimistically at the coming changes to Chaos in 2012. The release of 40k 6th ed is really making me nostalgic as it reminds me of 2nd ed. I truly love the return of the “heroic story-telling” aspect of the game, and the...
Hello my fellow Archons.
Sixth ed. Is right around the corner and rumors abound! I personally am looking forward to the release and can't wait to delve into the new rules. But to be honest I have been hearing some things that make me uneasy. I fear certain rumors might be true as in power...
Basically with the amount of chatter flying arount about 6th Edition and what codexes are going to be updated,etc,etc
It has got me thinking
Are vanilla marines slowly being left behind?
I am aware that this is the natural proggession of things (ie as new codexes are released to fit armies into...
Just out of curiosity, what do you guys know about the new rulebook that's coming next year and it's accompanying boxed set? Which races will be in it? Who's being updated next year? What new rules might be put in there?
I just wanted to make one thread where everything can go in...
