PRIMARIS
Normal space marines can be made into primaris now with surgery (or something).
Again, mini-marines aren't going anywhere.
GREY KNIGHTS ARE NOT GETTING THE PRIMARIS TREATMENT.
So primaris are literally spartan4s

Jon was talking about John...he don’t need no upgrade...

Notably rather than "AdMech" being listed as a faction, they were instead listed as "Kastellan Robots". Eldar were also listed as "Windrider Host".

Huh?

This is utterly confusing to me. I can't think of a single reason why they'd do that and limit to subfactions or even single models..

they said that the detachments were for lore reasons, so the windider host is beil tan, since they are involved in vigilus, there's also a black tempars one, and new ones will come out based on campain rarther than sharing them evenly, so eg necrons (who are not at vigilus) will need to be involved in a campain before they get one

In other news, in the doubles tournament I just got back from, we got mauled... My Deathwatch and my friends knights suffered a minor loss, then we were tabled, then we suffered a major defeat :frowning: I don't think our Armies were hardcore enough, and our tactics were - not great...

That would be more like Mars or Stygies which I'd get, but single models...
Ah well. Wait and see.

@FarseerVeraenthis Oh wow. Sounds brutal. That's one of the reasons I'll never attent a tournament..

now I have a forced upgrade to win 10
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 25 2018 19:59
win 10 is not THAT bad. I have to use it at work, but at home I'm still at 7 and intend to stay there.
Now the atrocity that was win 8...

Upgrade to 10 shouldn't need to reset anything up
Unless you're formatting at the same time (Which isn't a bad idea, I usually do full wipes once a year)

Hmmmm. That AdMech "Fist of the Omnissiah" box looks like a good starting place
Also, the Daughters of Khaine wouldn't take too much work to turn into suitable daemonettes
Oh
Thought I would ask here
Does anyone have any Epic daemonettes they would be willing to part with?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 25 2018 21:36
2 of those is a damn good army for admech
got your troops, 2 units of dakkabots, 2 onagers
Add in some Dragoons and you're at a pretty good po int.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 25 2018 21:59
and I was just about to reduce my backlog...
But yes, a techpriest as cheap hq, more troops you always can use, onagers which I need 2 more of at least, and 2 katellans to do a full unit of 6.
Damn you GW, damn you!
I COULD find a spot for that squad of Infilstalkers, but definately the weakest link. Maybe that changes with CA 18 tho..
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 25 2018 22:01
You could send them to me out of the goodness of your heart :p
I still need to get 2 more boxes, so I can get a full unit of each
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 25 2018 22:01
that'S what I plan to do too xD
still stuff to paint though from last year battleboxes... which I got 2 off.
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Nov 25 2018 22:03
I also need to get 2 tech priests as well :/ sucks they're resin and not cheap
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 25 2018 22:03
there's a FW one for shits and diversity though
looking at the box, I might actually get 2 and sell the extra kastellan...
(and bin the datasmith.)
I was thinking about those actually
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 25 2018 22:05
works perfectly, not a fan of the forced sculpted base tho

I like it, there's a version without any armor on her front, but i'm not running slaanesh
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Nov 25 2018 22:06
yes, I remember those.
They are... intruiging.
I'd interface with her female input port with my mechadendrite.
For science.

And I'm pretty sure the new version actually is plastic

Nov 25 2018 22:10
Yeah the new one with the axe held across his front is plastic
