    You should read over the 'nid book again so you don't get cheated.

    What are you fielding against the xenos scum?
    As much dakka as I can bring to bear. Loads of Shootas, 2 Battlewagons with Kill Kannons (for shits and giggles, also templates), a squad of ten Burnas, 20 Lootas, and my trade-mark Kan/Dread Spam.

    Exterminatus is basically watching the Assault Marines rape the fuck out of everything while you frantically run around trying to take advantage of choke-points and grab ammo before those greedy shit-bags swoop in, kill everything, and steal all the ammo despite them not firing a single shot.

    I'm working on some of the fluff behind my DIY chapter, and I plan on making them secretly hostile to the Ordo Hereticus.
    The chapter has some type of genetic mutation that they're trying to keep secret, and in a typical Dark Angels successor chapter manner, they try and secretly destroy any agents of the Inquisition who suspect their secret or are in a close proximity to their operations.
    Obviously the chapter would have to have some type of organization formed within their ranks to carry out these acts. I'm thinking of something similar in organization to Chaplain Cassius's Tyranid hunters, only they wear unmarked black armor, have a higher emphasis on stealth, and combat Inquisitional forces, not Tyranids.

    You'd hate Brothers of the Snake then.

    And they're more than a match for a boy, more comparable to a Nob, Don't forget that by the time they reach Assault Marine Status (Codex wise the first thing a marine does after being promoted from a scout) they've already had decades of training and experience as a Scout, by the time a marine reaches Tactical Marine Status, thats probably 50+ years of constant training and experience right there.
    And you play a captain in Space Marine and according to his service studs, he's been serving as a Marine for at least 100-200 years. Of which most of it is pretty much either constant training or combat.

    Also, for all that GW push Ultramarines forward, they didn't half let them get mangled in Chapters Due,   nearly half the Chapter is dead at the end.

    I have no idea, but by the way, the Shard of Erebus is    Partly or wholly the Anatheme used against Horus before the Heresy   

    For a Ultrasmurfs book Chapters due is pretty fuckign awesome, Ninja Raven Guard and the Legion of the Damned make an appearance too.

    Yeah I knew that the shard was    the anatheme   , I like how the Raven Guard just shred a Chaos Leviathan but when did the Legion of the Damned appear, I thought there was only the few Renegades that survived Courage and Honour and the Iron Warriors.

    Spoilers ahead

       Before the tomb gets blown up, page 420 of the paperback, Marines in black armour, whose plates were bedecked by images of bones and skulls, ethereal fire crackling about their feet as they marched with funereal slowness. firing weapons louder than any boltgun that had the weigght and echo of something much larger

    And they show up at a time of great need, help imperial forces and then leave

    Well shit I thought     that they were the spirits of Ventris' ancestor and whoever else was buried in his tomb and that's why they were obliterating the Iron Warriors so easily    well the more you know.

    Not quite,   Though the Fire Hawks/Legion of the Damned Founding Chapter was the ultramarines. And fi they were the spirits of the Guy buried in the tomb (well, he actually does show up in Ultramarine colours) They would have been in ultramarines colours

    The first order was synonymous with the meaning "command". "Ordo", which is in Latin, only has a single meaning. They sound exactly the same in english, but they have completely different meanings in use.

    I always take BigNutz with me (Kff/'eavy armour/cybork mek), he's the designated leader of my army. Don't know how much use he'll be though, tyrannids ain't much for shooting.

    You have any scorcha buggies? Also you have your burna's in a trukk?
    No Skorcha buggies, and Burnas can't take trukks as dedicated transports (sad face). I'll probably skip the Kill Kannons and just use them as transports for a nasty mob of Nobz and leave the other one as an "open" Heavy Support option to haul the Burnas around in. And since I'll be lacking Kill Kannonz for template spam, I'll likely be bringing in Whirrrrgubbinz again (SAG/Cybork Mek). Just gotta watch out for the Trygon and Mawlock he's bringing.
    Though I do wish things like Lootas, Burnas and Tank Huntas could take Looted Wagons as dedicated transports, at least then Looted Wagons would have a USE.

    Also in exterminatus I snap up the ammo because I do fire shots thank you thusly.
    For every one Assault Marine that is actually helpful, there's 10 that just steal all the kills and ammo. Makes Devastators that much less fun to play.

    The most likely thing which would of happened after the end of Space Marine is that     Titus is Executed for Heresy/Corruption     as that's just how things work in W40K. It's highly unlikely he will     return to the Chapter, or if he did he probably wouldn't be the same

       I guess his warp-resistance could be seen as useful by the Inquisition, so maybe he will start working for one?    Would make for a good sequel, if you ask me. Would be more fun that playing a    corpse    at least.

    I finished making my army list. Would be neat if pepole who know more than me would say what im doing wrong/right.

    here is the list
    HQ:

    Not Predo Kantro 175

    TROOPS:

    Tactical Squad Whit Flamer and missle launcher(sergant whit chainsword/boltpistol) 170

    Tactical Squad Whit Flamer and missle launcher(sergant has power fist/boltpistol) 195

    Transport:

    Rhino whit Storm bolter 45

    Rhino whit storm bolter 45

    Razorback whit twin linked assault cannon 65

    Elites:

    Terminator Squad (1 Assault cannon 1 chainfist)235

    Sternguard veteran Squad(Sergant/w Lighting claw+boltpistol,4Combi meltagun)

    Heavy Support:

    DeVastaro squad(2 Heavy bolters,2 Plasma cannons Sergant whit Chainsword/boltpistol) 170

    Land Raider prometheus 240


    TOTAL:1500
    Why are you taking Pedro Kantor? you've got no dedicated CC squads to take advantage of his 1+ attack bonus and his Stormbolter isn't that great. I'd take a Termie Librarian and plonk him in the Termie Squad with Gate of Infinity. You could use the points you saved by doing so to give your entire Termie squad chain fists, so they can just appear right behind the nearest tank and rip it to shreds.

    The Prometheus is garbage, if you want an anti infantry LR take a Redeemer. The Flamers allow no cover saves , give you 2 S6 Templates of death, and you get an Assault cannon and Multi Melta. And it costs around the same points.

    Also, if the SG go in the Razorback what are you going to do if it gets destroyed? the only proper AT squad you have is the SG and to be effective they have to get within 6''. With only 5 squad members and AV12 to protect them, they aren't going to last long. I'd swap the Razorback out for a Drop Pod and use the extra points to give the other Tactical Squad a Combi Melta/Power Fist. No offense, but your current list is missing Plan B.

    With all this talk going on about cheaters and that, there's this one kid up at 40k, he used to play Nids but switched to Grey Knights. Basically what he would do is roll all his dice into a pile of other dice and pick out the good ones. He also likes to roll where you can't see the dice and say it's a success and make the opponent re-roll a successful dice because "I didn't see you roll it." The easiest way to beat him is to bring sternguard with combi-metlas and just destroy his paladins and he'll quit.

    I just realized I have a Terminus pattern Land Raider collecting dust that I could be using. I got it back when they were sold as full kits for a limited time.

    Suddenly I have the strangest urge to field them against my biggest rival's Termie and Land Raider spam list.

    i could use some tips for putting together a nid army having never played a table top game and i don't own the general rule book (though i have my codex but that means nothing to me when it refers to the main rules all the time)

    i've got like 20 terma + hormagaunts a squad of raveners, warriors, 30 odd genestealers a carnifex a trygon and a lictor and i have no idea what i'm doing with them

    think i need a hive tyrant really and possibly a zoanathrope but GOD DAMN hive tyrants are ridiculously expensive for the 1 model, i'd prefer to get a swarm lord look alike for that price but you can't even do that (i'm told you need 4 kits for the 4 arms)

    the way the game actually played out, it would make sense to have him as part of a death watch seeing you're a captain in the actual game but don't actually seem to lead anyone (or two marines at max). I'd love to see a marine game like Dead Space mixed with Alien but as a first person shooter involving you as a first person marine with a small squad sent to investigate/purge a ship or area and slowly have your squad killed off until its only you.
