I cannot wait for that new space marine tactica! I have a lot to choose from in my army but I do really badly on the table. It’d be nice to get an expert view of what’s effective and how best to play them. Hopefully without Guilliman! I love him but some players (like me) don’t like to/ don’t want to use him for narrative reasons 🙂 Love the channel, yearly subscriber 😀

I just emailed these suggestions to the GW FAQ email address: Hello, There is a lot of talk about Astartes being behind what they should be currently. Also, a lot of talk about the only solution being a new codex. I think some keyword changes would actually solve some of the issues, so here are my suggestions: Astartes Bolt Weaponry: shots from these weapons do mortal wounds in addition to normal damage on wound rolls of a 6 – they explode inside the target when they penetrate after all – affects all bolters from rifles, bolters, pistols to heavy bolters… Read more »

Necrons aren’t too bad I don’t think at the moment, managed to come 17th in heat 1 of the GT this weekend but i do think a few units are over costed

I think the problem of the 8th edition is that they put invul saves everywhere in every codex making everything super resilient except for, wait for it, Space Marines which are supposed to have the best mass produced armor… well done.
For me the issue is not the space marines but the spam o lf invul saves everywhere else

I would also say that the danger with all this is GW keeping on increasing the cost of Guilljman because “he is everywhere”, of course he is! Its the only way for SM to try and have smtg competitive

Razorback with twin assault canon or aggressors with auto boltstorm gauntlets for anti-hord? I did the maths and the Razorbacks (without stormbolter 114 points) kill on average 6 models (with T3 Sv 5+) per turn. Aggressors (unit of 3 for 111 points) kill 8. RBs have better range (24″), more wounds (10) and higher toughness (7), but the assault canon is a heavy weapon so they are -1 to hit if they move (then they only kill 4-5 hord models per turn). As you can see in most table top tactics battle reports with SM tank lines the biggest weakness… Read more »

I really miss Grey Knights, can we have a hammers of titan vs a chaos army soon please? I just watch the original 8th hammers batrep tonight when the codex dropped when bone played khorne/nurgle. That was one of the luckiest vs unluckiest games I have ever watched and was a really eye opener to how the game has changed so much in a year

I think along side looking at the Space Marines Codex that the Grey Knights, Chaos Space Marines, and Death Guard Books need to be revisited. Death Guard has 2 amazing units in the Bloat Drones and Crawlers but every other unit is lacking.

IMHO Hellfire Rounds Stratagem is very very good, but that’s pretty much the only one good in there, besides Killshot haha. Why not a heavy bolter in each squad team so you can pump D3 mortal wounds each round?

I feel that GW maybe should have waited with the Big FAQs and maybe even Chapter Approved, until all the codices were out. The problem we have now is that everything is changing so fast that the thing that was put in place to fix that one thing, suddenly doesn’t matter any more because a new issue is here… it becomes a bit too much. (Not to mention the fact that I have armies I am working on that suddenly won’t work as intended once the paint is dry, because of FAQ rules). I agree though, Space Marines, in all… Read more »

Where’s chef? Feel like we are missing out on a good long rant.

I would love to see how SM played if the classic marine was 2W and 2A, and Primaris were 3W and 3A, both at their current points cost. It would probably be much closer to how we expect space marines to play.
