Re: New Codex announced

I'm with you on the feel of the demon codex.  I really miss the customization options from the days old.  Hell, I miss everything we had back in 5th edition.  We were immune to most of the crap rules like morale and armor pen and even deployment rules were special for us.  6th ed took our uber elite...

Re: New Codex announced

The thousand son codex isn't shabby.  I haven't really dug into the point costs yet for alot but the army seems to be very suited as a durable CSM army with alot of psychic support.  Every psychic character option gets 2 casts with access to multiple disciplines and magnus and arhiman get 3 each wit...

Re: New Codex announced

the thousand son codex is bringing tzeentch some new playthings.  The demon prince from that book can cast 2 powers a turn and has access to CDM, demons, and the new psychic discipline.  A very nice addition :) The thing i'm stoaked about though is the mutalist creature.  It's a heavy support MC but...

Re: New Codex announced

Yeah, I am finding that MSU style play is only valid for filling detachment slots to get command points.  Units are only killy if they are taken en mass.  Hell, that 20 man genestealer unit took 18d6 flamer shots dropped it down to a lone model.  So even taking mid sized units isn't killy enough.  T...

Re: New Codex announced

Well I played some tzeentch vs nids and got doggie stomped :P   The shooting combos work well but the army is a bit limited.  A 30 man pink horror unit with a herald and demon prince nearby with flickering fire becomes a scary unit.  Problem is they can get shot the crap the same as they shoot stuff...

Re: New Codex announced

I haven't gotten a total feel for the codex yet but I think it's a pretty strong one for sure.  There are some solid combo's for each of the ruinous powers.  Khorne got all the goodies I wanted them to get but after watching some 'how to assault' videos I think the army plays backwards from how 8th ...

Re: New Codex announced

There are a whole bunch of reveals for the new demon codex and new nurgle models on warhammer community: https://www.warhammer-community.com/warhammer-40000/ I'm kinda stoked for the loci buffs.  Khorne has always had issues getting into combat but with rerolling charges and a +1 to charge distance ...

<t>I'm stoked for a codex. They've done some sizable changes to indexes in the codex implementation and I'm seriously hoping they'll rework a bunch of the demons. I tried them at first launch but found them to be problematic. I had a 6 man unit of bloodcrushers shot off the table in one volley by de...

<r>Anyone find any good combos from the CSM codex?

<r>Deathguard gives me hope. I was quite disheartened when I saw plague marines pricing in 8th edition. I"ve always adored the plague marine concept with super durability and access to good guns. Makes marines seem like they don't suck <E>:P</E> However, they've always priced them stupid (same with ...

<r>yes, the best practices of the IT industry does frown upon duplication of effort but this is just a game and GW took a lazy approach to it. They kept the CSM ascended DPs in one dataslate and the demon DPs in another. While you are right that a DP of slaanesh is a demon of slaneesh, but what make...

<t>Thematically it makes sense to seperate them. CSM princes get 'death to the false emperor' and loses the god traits. This fits as those demon princes ascended to princedom and would have retained their core motivations and not necessarily been granted the boons of the gods.<br/> <br/> From a rule...

<r>I was really hoping that demon princes would be the 'imperial knights' of the demon faction. They'd come in around 500 pts and have upwards of 20-25 wounds and pack some serious beat down offense. Alas, I was sadly disappointed. Still, they are still pretty stout and do still back a punch. I thin...
