so I have decided to scratchbuild a variant pattern thunderhawk or stormbird, using a mix of 3d print, gw kits and other odds and ends
which of the two do you think I should go for?
probably going for something that looks more like the corvus
just a lot bigger

Bigger is better

stormbird can hold a mix of primaris and non

New Bolter Drill in February White Dwarf
Rapid fire - 1/2 range OR if remained still OR if vehicle/Bike/Termy/Cent

and suddenly a storm bolter sounds vagely threatening to chaff
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 21 13:00
yeah, termies & SM bikes with bolters hanging from every surface suddenly means a lot more ... I gotta say I like this 'baby steps' approach to adding more to Marines

@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 13:22
centurions now playable?
as chaff clearers
now they can get all 12 shots at full range, so they dont need a transport :smile:
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Jan 21 13:41
That sounds brutal
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 13:42
i think we might be seeing a lot more intercessors as backfield objective holders.
synergises nicely with DA's grim resolve as well
Earl Bishop

Mmm bolter fire
Happy ___ day to you muricans
I can't make a joke of it without sounding like a tiki torch asshole.

obj holding tacticals suddenly double their firepower for the most part...
from very dismissable to dismissable :P
the real msg though is - we see, we listen, we try to fix
and THAT, ladies and gents, is what important here
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 14:33
intercessors and scouts are still better than tacticals though
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 21 14:34
definately
but buffing bolters is a really big step to buffing marines in general. If they come up with something to help the power armour too we might actually get somewhere

said it many times now .. I appreciate the small increments changes a LOT more than just slapping on a huge marine change and seeing the fallout as .. FoTM Aeldar players birth another Chaos God from their butthurt
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Jan 21 14:38
true, true.
Changing bolters is a pretty sweeping change in the first place
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 21 14:38
that is a lot of Hyperbole btw eldar players ... just saying that kneejerk buff to factionsis not good news
looking forward to my RavenGuard Vets sitting back with special ammo ... and Raptors Primaris sniping stuff from deep cover
can't recall but is the formation stratagem Stalker bolt rifles for the sniper equivalent or just bolt rifles ?

Jan 21 14:48
I wish sisters got it too
Stoem bolters + blesses bolts, teehee

@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 21 14:51
oooh whats' the guns on the StormRaven ? huuricane bolters ? are they RF ?
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Jan 21 14:52
Yup, and the land raider crusader sponsons too
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Jan 21 14:53
noice!
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 14:59
stalker bolters are the snipers
bolt rifles get the RF2 stratagem
so 4 shots per model
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 21 15:29
I'm going to dance in deathwatch now
that is a HUGE buff
to DW terminators
4 shots guarnteed with SIA at max range?
so before you couldn't drop in and fire kraken
not at full rapid
now you can
and intercessors also got much scarier, 2 shots at 36" with kraken rounds from basic bolt rifles
also doing a cleanup run of all my bugs, I'll add in the beta rule as well
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 21 15:34
@/all since I'm in the GST anyway, I'll add the Bolter Discipline as a linkable force rule
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 15:47
dont link it in the GST please. it only applies to AA/HA
oh wait, that's in shared rules
looks good :+1:
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 21 15:48
which means the following cats: space marines, dark angels, blood angels, deathwatch, multiple chaos
its not active in gst
just linkable
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 15:48
yeah, i saw that
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 21 16:01
@WindstormSCR, I thought deepstrike counted as movement, so you can't double tap afterwards?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 21 16:01
you can with terminators and the new bolter discipline
terminators, bikers, vehicles, centurions always double tap, all the time
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Jan 21 16:01
Ah, terminators!
Missed that part.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Jan 21 16:02
which is pretty scary when its 20+ shots of 4/-2/D1

@tekton if you're around, want me to take a poke at the techmarine?

of course, at the moment I'm working on my Iyanden army so I believe it is time to start collecting my tears....
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 21 16:35
I mean....it's a step in the right direction
tekton
@tekton
Jan 21 16:35
Stormraven and gated crusader land raiders get a lot funnier with that one
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 21 16:35
I don't think it's going to suddenly propel murheenz to the top or anything, but it's definitely good
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Jan 21 16:39
yeah, it's small steps
but in the right direction nonetheless
i'd much rather see their units get more powerful, rather than just points drops
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jan 21 16:39
Agreed
100%
