Re: NLs Tartaros or Cataphractii?

There's a FW illustration of one in Cataphracti armor. Since they were Istvaan V traitors, they would have had Mark IV power armor (the Sevatar model looks like Mark IV in places), and presumably Tartaros terminator armor, since that goes with Mark IV. The Atramentar didn't get a unit entry, so FW m...

Re: Tourny legal counts as Genestealer cults ?

Sounds fine to me. Lengthening zombie fingers with green stuff would do for rending claws in my book.

And GW doesn't even make it possible to properly arm marines: I had to raid my bits to find enough bolt pistols for my Calth Thousand Sons.

Re: NEW 30K Box SISTERS of Silence, CUSTODIAN GUARD!

So, if anyone want to split the box, I don't need the furries, termies, or the custodes, but I would like the sisters, Ahriman, and some Mark III marines. I also have some Calth stuff to trade.

The rules for the custodes are INSANE.

Re: January 7+8: 40k Winter Apocalypse!!!

If a transport has a capacity of 20, does that mean you can put 2 units of 10 men inside it? How would they disembark? Lovell Rules for superheavy transports in 7th ed allow a superheavy to carry any number of units up to its transport capacity. I did not find anything about disembarking from super...

Re: AD&D 1e thoughts, interest

They made it through the first adventure---it took them 3 sessions---and I started gearing up for the larger campaign. Notable feats and things: They almost got wiped by . . . skeletons. And giant centipedes. They ran away from . . . a manes (the most minor demon, essentially a naked red halfling). ...

I think Warren took some wounds off of it and then you whacked it with either destroyers or the necron sniper dudes. It has only survived one game that I've put it in.

And yes, that was the game in which I vortexed my own aquila strongpoint.

Re: January 7+8: 40k Winter Apocalypse!!!

The 15mm Leviathan is exactly as big as a Mechanicum Thanatar. Lovell killed one in apoc a couple of years back. Bigger than a dreadknight, bigger than a contemptor. Maybe appropriate to run as a leviathan dreadnought (if those have 40k rules yet). And I run my 28mm leviathan as a knight castigator.

Re: January 7+8: 40k Winter Apocalypse!!!

Also: Potentially a similar ability to stack vortex blasts so you can create bigger & meaner vortex bubbles. I was kidding around, these are all obviously terrible ideas, but now I'm deadly serious. I could really really get behind John O and I bringing nothing but Librarians so we can Akira half t...
