Posted by mwnciboo on 20 December 2015 - 01:18 AM

Okay...So it's coming up to the end of 2015, and as a dedicated 30k Forum i think we are the Premier one out there, in terms of membership, maturity and just keeping it the right side of fun without it getting purile or tiresome.

I am laying down a challenge, as a Forum group to achieve in 2016 at some point, and don't worry, these will not require herculean efforts, they leverage the models we already have...we just need to get together,

The Rules..

2. Forum members with the same Legion, should look to join forces when they meet in person and get Photographs of their forces to prove it.
3. You must detail the Forum Members involved.
4. No non-forum member can jump in (though they could always just join the forum).
5. You can post up your pictures in this thread.
6. Once agreed as achieved you (and anyone else involved) can add the CHALLENGE achievement to your Signature.
7. Home made self built stuff qualify's, so models can be 3rd party, FW, GW or home made. The golden rule is it all must be painted in the same Legion.

#57534 Designer Driven Production

Posted by littlemen on 08 February 2015 - 01:46 PM

Counterpoint: I am thankful that Forgeworld's sculptors are encouraged and enabled to follow their creative vision wherever the heck it takes them. It has allowed them to put together an epic team of designers and create the best collection of GW-style/themed Miniatures ever produced. This also means that what they come up with is sometimes surprising (Solar Auxilla) but always thoughtful and interesting. It also means that models aren't always produced in a logical order and sometimes holes in the range are never filled. I welcome this. I want Simon Egan to sculpt what he damn well wants to. I want Keith Robertson to grow into a top notch sculptor (Have you seen the face on Dynat? Watch your back Simon) in an environment where he has creative freedom. I am not entitled to shit. I may not love every design they produce, but I love a damn lot of them. I also know that a lot of the models I love, like dong bikes, aren't for everyone. That's the point. FW can stretch boundaries and try things that would never fly at GW. Trying to make things that please everyone breeds mediocrity, it breeds Centurians. It breeds flying Santa sleighs pulled by wolves. It leads to dudes like Alan Merrit being in charge.

Thanks for being awesome Forgeworld.

#76127 A Squat Army

Posted by Inso on 12 June 2015 - 11:09 AM

I posted this little project on another forum and was asked to post it here... so here it is.

 

Many years ago, I had to move house and made the mistake of throwing away the major part of my Squat force... leaving me with about 10 Squats. In later years, I swapped them for Grymn and was left with just one, single, solitary Squat model.

 

But once a Squat fan, always a Squat fan and a few months ago, I started trawling EBay for plastic Squats and managed to amass quite a few... but there was a problem. I didn't like the way the arms fitted... and the lasguns were too long... and there was a choice of only three heads... and...

 

So I decided that I would start a little Astra Militarum army and put my own spin on things. First up were a few test miniatures:

 

SquatWIP41_zpsqjb7tf63.jpg

 

They seemed to go pretty well... so I then thought I'd make an Engineseer:

 

SquatWIP21_zpsc6ea4911.jpg

 

And an Engineseer needs toys so I built a pair of servitors (robots rather than cyborgs):

 

SquatWIP23_zpsb01288e2.jpg

 

Then I decided to bite the bullet and put together a platoon:

#82378 HH Plastic Rumors. Out now!

Posted by Penddraig on 27 July 2015 - 10:17 AM

Here's my view based on conversations with FW staff at Open Days, personal observation and inferring lots.

Facts
1.  Book 6 will contain the Legiones Astartes rules for the remaining Legions other than Thousand Sons and Space Wolves, but will not contain rules for any elite units or the remaining Primarchs.
2.  FW have stated that upgrade packs for the remaining Legions will be out this year with the aim that owners of the missing Legions can start to build their armies as "most armies uses the same rules" - Alan Bligh
3.  FW have released a range of paints to paint all the Legions including traditionally more difficult ones like Alpha Legion and Sons of Horus.
4.  Autumn this year will see the Heresy Master Class book that will explain how to paint all 18 Legions with clear examples.

Personal Observation
5.  FW have had lots of complaint levelled against them that certain units have not been sculpted from earlier books due to new ranges being released (Solar Auxilia, Ultramarines etc).
6.  New GW Ad. Mech range has a lot of styling similar to 30k such as autocannon barrels, Volkite-esq weapon styling.
7.  Over the last 6-9 months, FW have refered to the Heresy set much more consistently as "Age of Darkness" rules and as a supplement to regular 40k.

Inference
8.  Heresy has taken off faster, larger and greater than FW hoped it would.
9.  Success of the Mechancium led to GW studio developing Ad. Mech and Robots for regular 40k.
10.  FW Designers are moving back towards larger sculpts and unique troops as opposed to more "regular line" troops, eg: Mastadon, Warlord, Magos with Servitors, Xiphon, Ultramarine Suzerin, Stormbird.
11. Cross-selling has become more accepted.  The new Militia list encourages the use of any model in the Citadel or FW range; more pictures of GW models in the main Heresy books.

So where am I going with this?  My personal view (and hope) is that the rules are going to be left with FW to develop as part of their original remit (in conversations with Alan Bligh) was to produce large scale books concentrating on key campaigns / events.  Badab War, Siege of Vraks and the Imperial Armour books support this.  Also, FW will continue to develop the more specialist vehicles (Sicarians, Spartan, Super-Heavies etc) and units such as Legion Elites (Justaerin, Death Shroud etc).  The new Mastadon and Ordinatus WiP together with Ultramarine elites support such ideas.

Together with this, GW Studio will pick up the "basics" of the range.  Power-armoured line troops that could be used in a variety of squad types, HQ choices (remember FW have not released any Centurion sculpts beyond the Champion and Master of Signals other than event-only models).  This does two key objectives:  One:  lowers the entrance cost for people wanting to start Heresy and two:  relieves pressure from FW to focus on specialist models rather than "everyday" units that everyone has access to.

You could also consider how many Chaos and Space Marine players may want earlier marks of armour for regular games of 40k and the modelling / conversion opportunities this may offer to gamers.  It could also lead to GW supplements for Chaos Legions using these models. This links back to GW's stated aim of "a model company not a games company".

Is this a separate game?  I don't think so.  Is it a move of taking away from FW?  I hope not as many of us agree, FW have a very different method of working which is much more customer friendly and appeals to a more mature (in age and temperament) style of gamer.  This is a case now of just watching what will happen and not just assuming the world is ending.  I have trust in The FW Team to fight for their corner and their have certainly proven the success of the Age of Darkness to a key niche of gamers.  An important niche as they tend to have disposable income to spend.

Sorry for the length of the post.

#11978 WIP Istvaan III Loyalist Mixed Force

Posted by FinnCairo on 14 January 2014 - 05:42 PM

I'm building up a mixed force of loyalists from Istvaan III, with the majority being Sons of Horus. Set-up is post bombardment after loyalists started creepin' outta their hidey holes. This will be a small group of hit and run loyalists using whatever is at hand to execute guerilla attacks in the murk of the dying planet. Focusing on squads of mixed Astartes - these are desperate times! 1850 with lots of jetbikes and javelins along with some standard tacticals and termies.

A Sons of Horus Forgelord is the only one who knows how to keep the hodgepodge of weird jetbikes and speeders in the air. Plus he got a single Deathguard tank fixed and running again with the help of its crew and lone Deathguard terminator. SoH Master of Signals knows how to work through the comm-noise and helps coordinate attacks and decodes traitor transmissions. His Orbital Barrage would instead represent hidden explosive booby traps.

I'll deposit various milestones, whims, and fancies here as I go! 
 
Starting things off: A view into my mad methods. This is part of the reason why it takes me forever to get started on a project. I have trouble shutting down the organizer gremlin in my brainspace. Also, mixing armor marks, shoulder pads, and legions in one force demands order. THERE WILL BE ORDER!

Once the paper work was done I got stuck in on some actual assembly. It took about 18 seconds into cleaning my 1st model before the hobby gods demanded a blood sacrifice. Happens every damn time I start a project. (Just noticed that I totally put the fins on backwards...)

#172145 How similar is 30k to 40k...

Posted by likeAsir on 01 February 2017 - 10:33 PM

What is the difference between 40k and 30k? Recently I have been asked a few times about this and wanted to clarify a few things


Fluff:
Everyone has heard of Warhammer 40'000 (40k). Space marines, sex elves and Orks that speak like a cockney whom has suffered a stroke. Warhammer 30k (Horus Heresy) is the sort of Historical wargame version of 40k, sort of a homage to the Horus Heresy books. If you liked the Heresy books then you are going to LOVE 30k. Now the 40k and 30k books are starting to merg together in many ways. Talos, Abaddon, Bjorn and others are still about 10'000 years later.


Would 40k aliens work in 30k tho Ben?

 

Yes, yes they would. See Necrons were starting to awaken in the 31st millenium, the Eldar actually spoke to several primarchs (they chose Fulgrim, hahahahahaha!) and the Legions met with creatures that could have been Tyranids (See False Gods for the Arachnids on "Murder"). Tau are harder to fit in but it can be done. The Interex race used tech beyond Imperial standards and many other alien races were discovered that were similar to current 40k races.

 

Is it similar: yes

 

 

Aesthetics and composition of armies:
I open with this: 30k does not work below 2000pts!
On the table 30k looks very slightly different. For one 30k rewards BIG units. 20 tactial space marines with bolters costs 225points. Thats because every miniature after the basic squad is cheaper. Some squad upgrades are also bough with one set price, regardless of the squad size. Unfortunately the big blue hadnt written the codex at this point. All Legionaries units (we dont call em space marines) are very specialised. Think Eldar in power armor. On the table this means huge units of single weapon types. A 30k force needs to be larger than 2000 pts to take on 40k. The lack of cheap non-specialist units makes it poorly balanced against the likes of Necrons, Eldar and Tau whom will utterly decimate a legion list in smaller games. 30K is also about synergy. Below 2000pts you cant really get all the units in to achieve synergy, go big or go home.

Many of the miniatures are bought from Forgeworld but we encourage a mix. 30k legions had only worked up to MKVI armour, so we encourage baroque, older looking types amongst the legions. Saying that there is no problem with using 40k space marines, my Word Bearers occasionally pretend to be full blown chaos space marines!

The last point about composition is elites and firepower. 30K has ccess to some tasty units, but they cost... oh boy they cost. Generally Elite units cannot hold objectives, meaning you cant just splurge on those two wound terminator units, gladiatorial combatants or bling Iron Hands. you need to put some basic units in. Heavy support is a strange mix of cheap 40k type selections, and insanely expensive (but lethal) old tech. Would you spend nearly 400pts on a dreadnought? You would if you have seen what a Leviathan can do!

The big one is no formations... none, nada. Formations in 30k would be ob-fucking-scene.

 

Is it similar: in games above 2000pts, Yes

 

 

 

How they Play.

30K uses the same rule book. It has some amendments for things like d-weapons, force organisation and super heavies. None of the amendments are vastly different and they are generally mae up for balance.

Legion lists are balls to the wall nasty if done right, but only with the right synergy. An example was my list this week that had all of my units benefit from a 4++ (Invulnerable) save (using blinding good luck with psy powers and blessings from the eight!). The synergy is achieved through specific legion rules (Word bearers get wibbly powers, Ultramarines get Tau like shooting, Dank Angels get nasty tech). It is also done through picking various "rites" which change how your army is composed. Finally, synergy comes from add on units such as Apothacarys which can make most units feel no pain and give zero fucks about anything short of a krak missile.

Most games are Legion vs Legion, but not all. I have a 200+ infantry cult list which is basically what happens when you play guard like Orks (minus cockneystroke). Gene has a Mechanicum list which is insanely hard but even in larger point games his model count is 20-25. Even if all you played was a clash of ceramite there is enough versitility for very interesting games. An example is myself and Stu. Stu Also plays Word Bearers but he loves elites, high tech tanks and big transport. Me on the other hand, i love a swarm of assault infantry as my hammer and a massive unit of tactical marines as the Anvil.

 

Similar: Yes!

 

 

The cheese factor:
The massive elephant in the room (is my penis!) is that 40k isnt as balanced as it could be. It has got better, but it still happens that you rock up against a player and all the best tactics in the world will still lead to defeat.

30k is relativley balanced. It is difficult to get something for everything in any list due to the specialisation of the units for legions. We sort of have an unwritten rule that if we intend to bring some nastiness we forewarn our opponent, examples include:

 

Me: Taking Be'Lakor or my legion Glaive
Tony: Taking Ironwing
Gene: Taking Mechanicum Tagmhata
Dave: Phosphex spam
Tim: Bringing his Knight list.

It just seems polite.

 

40k is certainly more unbalanced. Eldar Wraith/jetbike list will utterly Bill Cosby a legion list. But WAIT! It is easy to balance this by removing the option for formations. Some units in 30k are also much nastier against non-legion forces. I used my Ashen circle (hand flamer marines) against Guard once. The unit is pap against astartes foe but wiped out FOUR squads of guardsmen in one turn!

Similar: If kept in a friendly non-competitive spirit, then yes.

 

 

So there you have it. Under the hood the games systems are very similar and more importantly, compatible. I would heartily encourage games between the two systems. We will also been introducing a club Errata for certain sillier rules in the 7th ed after a year of discussion.

I hope this is useful and encourages people to try a variety of opponents.
