So Eldar = China and Humanity = filthy Europeans? Actually yeah I can see that.

It's not an opinion though, it's fact.

>Nobody is more technologically advanced than Eldar

Necrons were not active, they had also been technologically stagnant for millions of years.

So how are Terran Marines compared to Space Marines? Considering the former are the backbone of all Terran factions' armies while the latter are the super-elite spec-ops forces of the IoM, of course.

Also, how would Protoss fare compared with 40k's factions? Maybe compared to the Tau, since their civilizations are probably similar in numbers?

That's such a dumb but cool idea.

I loved the description of Horus and co being fucking amused by their crossbow-lookalike weapons, when being completely flabbergasted when it was revealed they shot Golden Age laser shit that could effortlessly punch through power armor and spot-boil the Marine inside.
Well that bit of fluff was more to explain why war in the setting wasn't just a game of strategic MAD with planets and cruisers firing nukes and casaba howitzers at each other from extreme range

I mean you could design a game around that but it would be a different sort of one.

Terran Marines are roughly on par with a regular IG infantry unit in terms of training and skill, hopped up on drugs and brainwashed to make them a bit more loyal, and power armor

well, yeah

there's no canon hierarchy, so how are we to understand wildly conflicting sources on a topic?

Well, probably we should give up, since 40k isn't worth trying to understand on the level we're talking about.

But we're autists that have been arguing in this thread for an hour straight.

So, probably, I'd say

>Heavy Choppa

You mean the two handed weapon?
their guns can hit flyers, and are roughly as strong as a .50 calibre, and have uniform but incredibly fast fire rate
so gauss rifle may be a heavy stubber with skyfire
24'' assault 2, S3 (if you really want a heavy stubber) AP-1 D1, may ignore -1 to hit penalty against flyers
ap -1 is from their ability to glance anything to death over time, which is based off the change to necrons

their armor gives them a 4+ save, since it only makes them about twice as durable as an unarmored human, the addition of a shield like in SC2 may give them a bonus to either toughness or armor, depending on how you want to abstract it

their combat drugs would let them fire an additional time, but take a mortal wound on a 6+, you can stim several times before dying, so this can be represented by having a % chance to die to each one

The version of Ruinations in the LotFP homebrews section is old. Really, really old. Same with the character sheet. Can you replace it with these here, please? Or if not, then remove that old version entirely.

I'm thinking of just taking the primaris pill and shelving my manlet marines.

My army looks dumb on the table fielded with Primaris, like two different brands of different scale action figures. It triggers me and I see no reason fluff wise why the current marines wouldn't take the available Primaris upgrade.

Is it viable? Does anyone else feel the same? Primaris were a mistake.

I agreed that they're taller.
They have the same general model size, that's what I was alluding to.
Why are people so fascinated with Primaris Marines? The only good looking ones are the Intercessors but their rules are hot garbage. Points for points, a pure vanilla marine army is just more competitive and more efficient than a Primaris force. The only good Primaris unit is the Lt's as you get two HQ's for the price and slot of one.
>The only good Primaris unit is the Lt's as you get two HQ's for the price and slot of one.

That's terrible considering you want to eat up as many slots as you can to unlock CPs.

I'm quite surprised at GW. Normally when they make a new model that they're trying to sell super hard, they make them... you know.... good, even if the models are garbage, almost to the point of forcing people to use them in their armies if they want to stay competitive. This, on the other hand, is almost the opposite. The models are actually pretty cool, but the rules are hot garbage.

Why is there so much hate for Primaris models beyond Intercessors? Is this a meme? Nothing released so far is that bad, especially in the context of what they're supposed to be.
Inceptors seem to be getting a lot of hate, but they jump down from orbit, the suit looks appropriate with its jump pack hood and shock absorbers.
Reivers have slimmed down armor for stealth, who gives a shit if they have skull masks? It's fucking 40k, skulls are everywhere.
I can admit the Gravis captain looks like shit, but they're coming out with 2 new models that look much better.
The Redemptor has some smallish legs, but they're not that small.
The Repulsor has too many bits on it, but the pintle minigun are seperate bits that don't have to be added to the model.

Is it autism? Is that why they have to treat every flaw like it's the worst thing they've ever seen? Or are SM players just pissed they're armies are now entirely composed of manlets?

Magefags are total asshats, discarding every conceivable pretense just to take massive magical dumps over every non-Mager.

Yet most every non-Mager I see on here is a screaming pile of autism. Is it any wonder why you're such easy targets to them?
The above homebrew anon wasn't even boasting about anything, and you fucking lose it.
As much as I wish you weren't right, that's probably exactly what they're intending.
How did the Archmage get a chance to do that without breaking the Pax? Exarchs back him fully or something? Because short of that trying to enslave Luna with Archmagic, basically the only way you can do it, is a fool's errand

Alright, sup /tg/, time for a new entry in the shennanigans of the "Disc of Kal-Vortun", a Campaign I've been running for the past few months in a custom setting. Pic very much related, the party got to deal with this today.

> At the start of the session, party was spending a week doing developments in their own personal stronghold/town that they Reposessed in the name of the City of Syr.
> Party leader explains that he is naming their hometown "Ancapistan", and that their main motto will be "Abecht Macht Frei". Much chuckles were had around because we aren't autismos with no sense of humour.
> A Courier arrives with some news from around the world.
> Syr had a massive break-in at the University, a crack team had somehow managed to perform a ridiculous raid on the Archaeology Department.
> Other things too, the State of Londorium and Middenland formed an alliance, and immediately declared war on the elves. Various scholars from Syr believe that with this news, true-blooded elves will become extinct within the next 20 years, since they were already going extinct.

The party decided at this point to go visit Syr and check out the break-in, see if they could find out anything.
> The whole city had shown various upsurd signs. Windows had perfect circles cut out of them, sewer grates blasted open, Sentinel Automatons were riddled with bullet holes, and the entire security system of the university was systematically dismantled inside and out.
> At the very least, the city watch did manage to capture one of the intruders.
> It was a fucking Kobold.
It's not just you. I appear to also have been banned.
It sounds fun, and Broodie seems like the type to run a fun game

Doesn't change the fact it's never talked about besides greentexts.

RIP Doll, you were just a splash in the pond.

The invite is just broken.

How are they doing so far?

Tzaangor are great, the last game I played 20 of them killed a Dreadknight in CC.
so the key is playing them in high numbers?

How would you do vs necrons? And or Eldar?

I like to play them with a hellbrute because I have aTS dreadnought from FW and it looks dank as fuck with his twin link lass canon.
Versus higher armor you want to keep the Tzaangor blades since they give you +1 attack and -1 AP, against lighter armor you could probably do well with pistol and ccw, but yes they do rely on high numbers and like most TS units benefit from having an Exalted Sorcerer behind them.
Rest of the Death Guard when?

Wrong system, anon

This meme needs to die. There is no average on a d20. Every number is equally likely, there's no average. It doesn't matter if it's average "in the long run," a session isn't played by rolling the d20 ten thousand times. If you wanted there to be an average, you would roll 3d20 and take the middle.

Most if not all your problems with D&D and other such systems can be solved by just not playing them and not going out of your way to shit on it everytime it's mentioned.
Prove me wrong.

Fuck off.
>>Only players roll.
>Not a selling point. GMs like rolling, too.
"only players roll" is a game designer's marketing trick, to make one's own game more distinct. that's all.

Now, using 'troll' as a way of dismissing people without actually considering what they have to say? That seems more and more prominent.

Completely disregarding, y'know, that just calling someone a troll doesn't actually refute their point, even if a lot of people act like it does.
No, fuck off, you obvious troll. I don't even understand how you think anyone could be fooled by your autism.
i dispute the effectiveness of it.there ARE different tastes and most criticisms of D&D, for example, are written by a (genre) simulationist, when the game largely appeals to gamists. as such the anti-D&D propaganda isn't very effective.

t. genre simulationist who occasionally criticizes D&D for its blatant gamism in those threads but doesn't start any such threads

When Orks fight and kill, what part of that energy goes to Khorne and what goes to gork&mork? When slaaneshi worshippers spill blood, what part fuels slaanesh and what part feeds Khorne? If tyranids fight each other does Khorne get fuel from the resulting war? How can Khorne ever lose if fighting him just makes him stronger?

No it doesn't.

Orks make Gork and Mork from their collective psychic mumbo jumbo, then Gork and Mork, who now exist, decide it would be cool to randomly throw Ork Spores in random places around the galaxy.
