They don't because they're not modeled. There are only four sub types in game...Early Coastal, Coastal, Medium, and Minelaying and other than their reliability which goes up as you research, you don't get to affect them at all.

Yeah, it seems the most straightforward way to start.

What do you think of 2 Warriors, 9 Beastmen and 4 RR though?
Sacrifices early hitting power a bit, though you can still get 3 S4 blocks with a Blitzing beastman, but means you'll get that extra reroll, which could be pretty important early on.
Nah sacrificing two STR 4 AGI ball carriers and bruisers is too much of a loss. Even if you're not going down the meta murder path, you'll want the muscle the Warriors provide. Like I made a slannesh team (Long legs, leap extra arms, claw, speed over raw power, etc, etc.) and all of the fuckers got dodge somehow. Beautiful nearly invincible men of the Prince.

Right up until a Necro team showed up. Fuck werewolves
The 4 Blitzer, 1 Ogre build can easily add in a catcher. I too felt like >>59911685 but when I added a catcher I now can't play without one. You pretty much treat them as back fielder assisters on defense, they can get to places where even the blitzers may have issue with, with +1 MV and dodge they are a lot safer to use.

Also on defense if you somehow sack the carrier, a catcher is essentially your "elf" to grab the ball and leg it up field. On offense they are brilliant for splitting up enemy bashers defense. Break a hole open and send a catcher up field, the opponent will get at least 1 player back or two. This gives you a huge positional advantage and with the discount in their cost, they're more than worth it.

Space Marine weapons have such a great aethstetic. Brutal, Gothic, and obvious power from a glance when you realize the scale.
Images like that help you appreciate how pants rendingly awesome the base aesthetic of 40k is. We get desensitized to it over time but hot damn son that shits amazing.
It would kind of take away from Seth, but I honestly wish that Eviscerators would catch on as like, a standard marine thing.
I remember reading in the night lords trilogy I think that the armor would automatically help adjust aim using the helmet so maybe he programmed the scope to do it without the helmet?

So the Kitsu are unique in that they can do weird spirit magic, peering into the various spirit realms and summoning ghosts.
The Togashi monks and the main Shiba family are weirdly spiritually deficient. Some of the monks being able to hold the soul of another and the Shiba having a similar gap.... But bigger cause it can hold every Shiba.

What do these anomalies look like to the Kitsu spirit sight? An empty void?
Man, everything about that beta was a clusterfuck. From the having to reference multiple PDFs bullshit, to every change being one step forward and two steps back, and then FFG just telling the playtesters “tough shit” on multiple issues that were mechanically terrible or poorly thought out, I have ZERO confidence in the new game being any good. And I ardently defended the idea of giving FFG’s new system a chance when everyone was throwing a hissy fit about it ditching d10s, I WANTED to like it, but FFG fucking blew it.
Has anyone tried playing multiplayer?

I'm only 24 but I think I feel like this already. Videogames just can't hold my attention for even an hour, yet holy shit, I will put so much time and effort into the weekly campaign, and double that into a holiday-themed oneshot every now and then. On one hand I kinda want to play the games for the story and overall experience, but I just can't find the motivation. Same with movies though, hard for me to sit down and do fuckall but look at the screen for an hour or two.
I mean, I felt really despondent for a while, then I joined anime club at university and rediscovered the joy of being a weeb that I had lost.

Maybe try a hobby that you haven't tried for a while?

I think a big part of the reason I somewhat shifted from vidya to tabletop rpg's as I hit 25 was not age but just a re-awakening to what I really value.

I spent a long time immersed in games that were 100% autistic gameplay driven shit. And that's fun, it can certainly be joyful and exciting under the right circumstances (fighting game night with friends, etc.) but after a while I started to realize there was a void, something inside that wasn't being fulfilled.

Then on a whim one day I picked up a more story driven vidya rpg and was blown away by how much I loved a good fantasy narrative (normally I think most vidya have shit writing but this one was diamond in the rough). That's when I realized: I'm a big softy who loves grand adventures, lovable characters, and weird ass shit that really makes you thonk. And from there I decided to get into trpg's.

From there on out, I've been making more room in my life for storytime, and I feel like I've reawoken to something I truly cherish. Creating an exciting story in a trpg and playing interesting characters feels incredible and I'm glad I took the dive into the genre.
>normally I think most vidya have shit writing but this one was diamond in the rough
w-what game?
Also, this is how it is for me too. I spend most of my time frustrated and unfulfiled with my table top experiences, but in my first session I had that one little moment that was pure magic that I never let go of the idea of creating something great and potentially having a group that can really work with each other and dynamically create great stories.
>what game

>I'm guessing the style of dialogue and interaction becomes more like a western animation than an anime dub while keeping the more over-the-top action and character designs?
Mostly. We both consume a fair amount of anime and manga so a lot of the tropes stay around but we don't talk the same way you'd hear in a dub. Hamming it up does happen, though.

>Main goal
Stop the heretics, don't die, don't kill everyone ELSE while dying, and figure out why this xenos stone is talking to 'em, in that order.
I'm not playing in a game because I have no friends, but I liked to pretend I'm playing a hermit in the woods waiting for the group to come find me so I can infodump on how to save the realm using the ancient artifact they found. It's just taking a while for the campaign to get there..

You know what, if GW is going to go full normie kiddie cartoon with 40k then why not make a line of action figures? I'm dead fucking serious. I'm not into the little tiny resin men but i would sure as fuck buy a line of 6" action figures like they were going out of style - and I bet a lot of other people would too.

Goddammit, I didn't know this storytime was happening. Season 0 was the shit. Really wish the game of the week gimmick had taken off instead

Having friends and making it into the mainstream really mellows a fellow out

You know what it's like when you just wake up cranky and need to go through your morning routine before you're yourself again? Its like that for Yami. Wakes up in a kid's body kind irritable, so he just needed to stretch his legs, mindfuck some people, have a cup of coffee, a shower, a few murders, then he's good.

I note that the penultimate battle of the series is literally D&D, but TO THE DEATH.
