The Vorha BIrd-is-the-Word group was also amusing to me

that one doesn't really have a theme, aside from "get close and shoot it"

It's flying chapters aside from the blackshield...so good job doing one on accident?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 00:02
true
squad 4 is the polar opposite of squad 2
all chapters that do the inquisitions dirty work
even when not seconding dudes to the deathwatch

heh
Well done, that is pretty entertaining

it gets better
all successor chapter numbers are in proportion with original legion size
something I'm continuing with one exception: one of the primaris squads is going to look suspiciously like old legion traitor colors

I was going to get some primaris painted but it's over 100ºF outside right now...and my meds say to avoid heat and direct sunlight...

Phoenix Chapter (EC), Brotherhood of a Thousand (1ks), Sons of Antaeus (DG), Iron Wardens (IW), Iron Snakes (AL)
thinking the secondary hellblaster squad
would have to break out some serious freehand though

@tekton
May 06 2018 00:15
sounds like it would look awesome though
still thinking about reasons to take hellblaster in DW

HPIs are good reliable ways of killing T8 vehicles
or T8 monsters
and work well paired with a stalker bolt rifle squad + agressor
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:16
true, there's not a lot else
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 00:16
dip into FW
lots of stuff there
relic predators, mortis dreads, stormeagles
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:17
which effect do they give the stalker squad?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 00:17
the thought of a deepstriking leviathan dreadnought amuses me to no end
the agressor?
move and shoot at no penalty
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:17
there's a leviathan in the box and waiting for me to put it together ;)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 00:17
or advance and fire assault at no penalty
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:17
i meant the hellblaster
WindstormSCR

nothing

tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:18
that's what i thought
ablative wounds for the hellblaster then?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 00:18
yeah, except until they're killed they will do a lot of damage
4/-2/1 2-shot at long range with hellfire ammo? and doing that while moving
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:19
i have some different colored hellblasters i was thinking about turning in to deathwatch a few months ago
could get me to play some of my imperium that's not pure GK again
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 00:32
Turns out I basically have a battalion if i just finish all of my half done primaris models: http://pyroturtle.com/assets/rosters/deathwatch_lol.html
Now to go play AoS while I work on AoS stuff
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 00:41
Still going through my stuff, but the drops were significant
yeah
overall total drop across all kill teams was about ~30pts per team

May 06 2018 00:47
so just the DW stuff in my collection comes to 2750 now excluding primaris except reivers
but that's not including the FW stuff that would be in use or my co-opted RG rhinos

@Kohato that is pretty awesome, i may have to share that...

apparently my AoS night was cancelled thankfully it was close by...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
May 06 2018 02:12
sadly I think hellblasters in kill teams will be too expensive for comp
I'd expect to see AM + reiverspam
I just played out a 4x4 1500 pt scenario vs my eldar
for casual games they are going to cause some tears
tekton
@tekton
May 06 2018 03:05
yeah, i was playing with some leman russ backup, too
or super elite and some shield bike captains
tekton
@tekton

that was nicely out of order and delayed...
