Re: Fundamental Space Marine problems

The Vanguard is in a weird position. Its kind of in between an escort and Light Cruiser. Something else they could consider trying: Give the Vanguard 200 shields. Have a series of 'lighter' variants stripped down functioning as very heavy escorts. 100 shield, 400HP, 6 turrets, with the same strength...

Re: Fundamental Space Marine problems

If SM ships get boosted to the same HP as any other ship, how are they more vulnerable to lances than lets say IN or Chaos? I'd rather this didn't happen, and instead compensate in other ways like lowering the point cost of Vanguards, escorts, etc. Given SMs role, it's too bad they didn't have a mo...

Re: Codex Sages : Gameplay questions

Why are Vanguards so bad? 400HP is not enough to do anything beyond die quickly and gloriously for the Emperor. Since Space Marines can only get 1 favor of each type total, and it makes more sense to put these favors on your Battle Barges/Strike Cruisers, that means you are stuck with 4 unfavored 40...

Re: Are we ever getting formations/support frigates?

Support Frigates : Support frigates are escorts primarily designed for a support role in mind. This makes them worth taking as more than just filler. They might have a very specialized role or are very cost-effective in the right matchup. Here are some basic ideas that I had: Brute Ram Ship - This ...

Are we ever getting formations/support frigates?

To put it frankly, escorts suck. I understand they are meant as expendable ships and scouts, but for the price they are inferior (if you have the points for a light cruiser, I feel like it is always a better deal over the equivalent in escorts, even for the factions with comparatively 'crappy' light...

A unique thought on changing Gunz

Gunz are by far the least appealing choice to take. Kanonz, for their faults, have that hefty big hitting power. Zappas have long range, ignore Orks' terrible accuracy and with upgrades can slow and bypass enemy armor. Guns seem like a 'can't afford/can't kustomize anything else' weapon. They are un...

Re: Goffs favor idea

my main fleet is goff orks and its perfectly competitive not everything needs to be a gimmick It is inferior to pretty much every other favor. Evil Sunz is by far the best, you get to boost more and the tractor beam is incredibly versatile. Bad Moonz is useful for zappa boats or carriers. Blood Axe...

Re: Fundamental Space Marine problems

On your first point: SM hulls are poorly designed. If you have ever tried fighting SM with any kind of fleet that relies on macro type weapons you'll have serious problems. Obviously IN and Chaos can take AP ammo however without this upgrade macro armed ships are almost entirely useless against SM ...

Re: Slannesh spam hard counters the shit out of Space Marines.

Maybe make the duration based on morale then ;it would still work on space marines but they would break out of it much faster than say orks. And seriously, it is broken compared to librarians ability. They can spam it from multiple ships while the librarian only gets one, and they get a morale reduc...

Re: Slannesh spam hard counters the shit out of Space Marines.

A simple fix would be to make master of sanctity ability grant immunity to effects like this. Better yet make the ability test the targets morale. This would make Space marines completely immune to it, and other races could at least offset its effectiveness. If chief librarian has to deal with this ...
