Not only is it good that rippers are 1-3 a unit for screening and objectives, it’s also nice on a modeling side of things since you can only get one per termagaunt/hormagaunt kit.

@appleycider402 3 meses atrás
@@Rotebeardai think this is actually the right sort of complexity to add to the game. The problem with 9th was having 40 strategems that could be used at all times. This system puts the complexity in armies in list building, but once the game starts, it’s just 6 strats. Any new rule set is going to be confusing at some points, but I think in the long run it will be worth being able to play distinctly different styles with the same range of models. I can see where the difficulty can come from the opponents angle though. It’s gonna be tough for more competitive players to know how to play against 6 variations of 20 armies at the end of the edition.

Unending Swarm looks like a blast to play (they all do, really, Tyranids are awesome) but when I played 8th, my favorite Stratagem of the time was Endless Swarm, which brought back a big unit of gaunts for 2CP. Resurrecting a unit of 3 Termagants with Devourers was incredibly satisfying! In tenth, Termagants with Tervigons have been really exceptional for me, playing them as an anchoring mob that can take board position and back up efficient monsters with impressive damage. I’d love to try this one out and see just how for the little guys can go!

@kyrridas1573 3 meses atrás
so, here's what im worried about. my main/biggest army is Drukhari, and GW really kicked us in the teeth for the sake of 'simplicity'. which i can grudgingly accept since they needed to churn out a bunch of indices and try to balance them in a relatively short time. i figured the full codex releases would be when the rules writers could go all in on each faction and make them interesting again. from what im seeing of this codex, though, its just an index with slight balancing changes and more detachment/subfaction options. if all we have to look forward to are a few balance changes, i dont think 10th is going to be remembered fondly.
@kyrridas1573 3 meses atrás
that being said, maybe 'nids are just a 'simple' faction to begin with and this is a bad example. i dont play them, so i wouldnt know either way.
shockcannon hive guard can work well with a foot tyrant to give them assault, tyrant guard are good paired with a neurotyrant as well. I like the idea of a fear huddle with neurolictor, deathleaper and parasite, could actually be more useful in synaptic nexus to hand out some mortals?

That way one new box could have maybe served to catch up the ones from the Leviathan and Starter box.

the change to ravener thoracic bioweapons gave me some hope that there will be *some* incentive to not take all the optional weapons and wargear on a unit, even if it may not be strictly just as points efficient, but then carnifexes and rippers still just have to take their spine stuff and bioplasma because youre paying for it anyway

I'm gonna try to run a list with Tyrannocytes. They can net you 6 pts alone every turn with static secondaries. I take Homing Beacon and Behind Enemy Lines. This strategy will be stopped by good screening in the back. I take whatever units inside the Tcyte that are the most effective for whatever situation. I just need one unit to stay alive with Tcyte for the other 2 pts of the BEL secondary. I also send hive tyrant or another unit to the center for HB. This nets you 10 pts a turn starting turn 1. You can max secondaries on turn 4 with static. The Vanguard list can allow this strategy without Tcytes. You just send in your reserves on turn 1. I like the Tcyte because I can give up its shooting for 4 points. If your opponent blessed you with great terrain placement, you can rapid ingress the Tcyte in if you go second on turn 1 so you can move. I want to do this to a knights player with genestealers and a broodlord to see if they can kill him and survive OW.

Invasion fleet is your best choice, followed by synaptic nexus. Both give good all round coverage and abilities that buff most or all of the units that come in the leviathan box, and most of the regular codex units in general.

Hey, thank you very much for your review and for all your other videos as well. I do have a question about what you say about the neurogants, that they might be a bad bodygaurd unit to the neurotyrant because the neurotyrant might take a bunch of wounds easily as the gants have such low toughness. Is this really true though? Isnt every attack in theory cast by themselves in order, we just roll them all at once to save time? So if I shoot 30 shots at 11 gants + tyrant,lLets say I get 20 hits. I first roll 11 wound rolls and kill of the gants, kep rolling till they are all dead, and then when that is done, roll wound rolls on the remaining hits on the tyrant, with the increased toughness value? Or have I misunderstood the rules?
@AlfredoGarcia-vx3lv 3 meses atrás
Core rules, page 39, under "Leader": "Each time an attack targets an Attached unit, until the attacking unit has resolved all of its attacks, you must use the Toughness characteristic of the Bodyguard models in that unit, even if a Leader in that unit has a different Toughness characteristic."
@timborna7543 3 meses atrás
So I just read that part you quoted. I would like to clarify some things. While the bodyguard unit is still alive, one is not able to allocate attacks to the leader, and must use the toughness of the bodyguard unit. But when the bodyguard unit is dead, it is no longer an attached unit, and the leader is now being attacked. Now I can allocate attacks to the leader. So does all attacks happen at the same time or not? Lets say I shoot at an attached unit with 1 guy left + the leader. I have 10 s4 shots and 2 s10 shots. I roll all the 10 s4 shots and kill the one guy. I then roll the s10 shots. Will I still use the bodyguard toughness? I dont think that is very clear from just reading that quoted part. I think I've seen others tell me before that we technically roll every attack one by one, and if that is true that paragraph can be interpreted as I said in the first post, no? Another example would be if I have 2 different units shooting at an attached unit. First unit kills the bodyguards. Now the second unit definitely use the leader toughness right?
@AlfredoGarcia-vx3lv 3 meses atrás
@@timborna7543 The rules stipulate that the character's toughness matches the bodyguard unit "until the attacking unit has resolved all of its attacks." Thus, if at the beginning o the enemy unit's attack, if there is at least one bodyguard model on the table, the Leader character model has the same toughness as that bodyguard model. After each enemy unit has completed ALL of its attacks, if the bodyguard unit is destroyed and no longer on the table, the Leader Character becomes its own unit and can begin using its own toughness. In the example you quote, as long as the S4 and S10 shots are coming from the same shooting unit, yes, the character retains the bodyguard toughness. What's more, let's say of those 10 S4 attacks, 3 wound the bodyguard-and-leader unit for 1W each, and the bodyguard model has only 2W. IN this instance, you need to roll slowly, because as soon as that bodyguard model is dead, even if there are still more S4 attacks to be allocated, any remaining successful wounds vs the bodyguard T are allocated as wounding hits to the character, which will use the character's save and any feel no pain abilities.
@AlfredoGarcia-vx3lv 3 meses atrás
For example, a squad of 10 intercessors fire 9 Bolt Rifles (A2, S4, AP-1, 1W) and a Plasma Pistol (A1, S7/8, AP-2/-3, 1/2W) into a Neurotyrant (T8, W9, Sv4++) and 5 Neurogaunts (T3, W1, Sv6+). Since the bodyguard unit is still intact when the attack is declared, ALL FIRE from this intercessor squad is targeting T3, full stop. 18 shots at 3+ means roughly 12 hits. S4 vs T3 means roughly 8 wounding hits. AP1 negates the Neurogaunts' saves, meaning all five are destroyed, leaving three wounding hits to spill over onto the Neurotyrant. The Neurotyrant now must make three saves at -1AP, presumably using its 4+ invulnerable as opposed to the modified 5+ normal save. Assuming the Neurotyrant lives, the Plasma Pistol now can also fire, STILL USING THE T3 OF THE BODYGUARDS, because when the shooting attack was declared, the Bodyguard unit was still alive and thus the entire unit's T is considered to be 3. Thus, the Plasma Pistol will wound on a 3+ against the Neurotyrant, even though the Plasma Pistol can at best get to a S8, equalling the Neurotyrant's T8, normally calling for a 4+ wound roll. If, after the Intercessors' shooting attacks are completed, then Neurotyrant is still alive, it is now considered to be a Character Unit and uses its Toughness of 8 against any further attacks from different units.

@_SpiritDan_ 3 meses atrás
Vanguard are clearly powerful. Many units have a base 10" or 12" move, or genestealers with 8" move plus 8" scout. With advance and charge in play it will be right up in your face on turn 1 with a lot of hard hitting melee units. Meanwhile, endless swarm has potential for sheer rage inducing levels of trolling and move blocking. Tale 20 Gargoyles plus prime. With Move 12" plus advance d6, shoot, move another 6", you can get to enemy deployment zone in one turn. Or you can deepstrike, shoot and do the 6" move to get closer. In any case, get right in enemy face but dont charge. Instead, in their turn you block the enemy movement during their move phase then if the enemy units didnt move far away from you, the first time anything shoots you to clear you out of the way, you use the detachment rule to jump into melee range. They lose out on any charge bonus, and you hit first due to being the defensive player. Prime has okay enough melee ability to bail out the gargoyle unit against any non elite melee focused units. You can take 3 of these units in a single army. Can see it being used to lock down whole sections of the table for a good turn or two. And when a gargoyle unit finally dies, regen it for 2 cp, deep strike it and do it all again......

As I read it the tyrannocyte has deep strike as well as the Aerial Seeding option. So it should be able to use Aerial seedling to get in during reinforcements step of turn 1, 2 or 3 or just use normal deep strike rules to come in 9" away from enemies and then disembark troops 3" closer than that (no reason cant used rapid ingress too if deep striking)? Also units could disembark like a normal transport rather than using the stipulations in Aerial seedling. I don't have one, but if this is the case a 6" charge range for a screamer killer or 20 gaunts could be cool. Thoughts?

I'm loving a lot of the codex, but I'm extremely disapointed about Trygons; like with the index, it feels like the Trygon has become a mawloc and the actual Trygon identity has just been removed. The most unique thing about Trygons is their tunneling and transporting a unit in that tunnel, and while 9th moved that ability to a stratagem, now in 10th its just removed and I call bullshit. It's litterally the main thing the Trygon does in the lore and its not in the game!!

I have to be honest... I'm super disappointed in how they treated nids with the Codex. Some good ideas here and there but way too niche or super specific uses, i was expecting an overall improvement in the QOL while playing Nids, something we didn't get in the current Codex. Also the unneeded big nerf to Tyrannofex was just criminal considering the utter lack of options we have for dealing useful ranged damage. Also unneeded big nerfs

Tyranid Warriors with Melee I think are continuing their "high price" because they are actually quite effective at killing in CQC, and with the Assimilation swarm they will stay alive long enough to get there. With Assimilation Detachment: Saturation of targets for the enemy (they are all dangerous up close), FNP with Pyschophages, Regeneration (good for targeting Warriors), and some good Enhancements to a Tyranid Prime with 6 Warriors ( potentially restoring 2 models per turn).

Regarding the Biovore, i get you can only seed one time per turn. But 1 Mine per biovore, or one time seeding for one unit per turn? What i mean is, if i have a unit of 3, can i seed 3 mines per turn, or is it just one mine per turn regardless of how many biovore are in this unit?

So - This comment is late to the party - but I wanted to wait until I had played a game with the codex before commenting. - But fallback and charge you mention is not that strong - but it is literally one of the strongest melee mechanics in 40k, and particularly for the tyranids as a lot of their big monsters have 4++ saves meaning they are often hanging around past a single round of combat. In an edition where opposing player goes first in combat - fallback and charge avoids the oppossing player having first activation in an ongoing combat or alternatively allows for redirection of your combat specialists if they are up against the wrong target. On Flyrants (and you are deffo running 3 in this detachment) it is absolutely amazing.

@parzaius9 3 meses atrás
Bio-morphs didn't come back. Synapse didn't go up to 9". Still no Shrikes. Melee versions still cost more than their way better ranged equivalents. Something like a quarter of the bugs getting nerfs. Synapse faction rule still sucks and is the worst it's ever been in an edition where other factions are getting shiny new special rules that are tearing things apart. It's nice that they dialed down costs mostly, but not by nearly enough in most cases. Nids certainly aren't the worst faction in 10th edition, but they'll never be better than dead middle of the road with this kind of treatment.

@parzaius9 3 meses atrás
@@danielburks2257 Using competitive placement rankings is not something that I mentioned. I said "middle of the road," not "middle of the pack." Tyranids are Mediocre. They don't do anything well, now that their speed, melee, shooting, toughness, psychic, and even their synapse have all been nerfed to completely unremarkable levels. What do Nids bring that no other faction offers? The answer is nothing. GSC and Guard do better swarm. Daemons do better monsters. 1k Sons and Eldar do better psychic (for all THAT'S worth in 10e.) Virtually everybody does better toughness and shooting. And the codex didn't appreciably improve anything. A handful of models went down by 5 pts. A quarter of the choices got nerfed. None of the new detachments are any better than the already middling default option. And Synapse is STILL the worst, most useless faction special rule in the game. Nobody said "I want my faction to be the top of the top." I just want my faction to be GOOD at SOMETHING. Mediocrity is not something to aspire towards.

@@parzaius9 So you are complaining that the faction that can adapt to any situation in lore is a very versatile force that can be built in many different ways and while not being the "best" at anything can be a jack of trades, tell me if I missed something pretty please
@parzaius9 3 meses atrás
​@@danielburks2257 Why are you bringing up lore? 90% of the 'lore' is just retelling the Horus Heresy for 900 novels and the remaining 10% is just "here's how the humans showed up and won the day." And if you go by the Codex Lore, you're going to be REALLY disappointed by the nids, who outnumber every faction in the galaxy and have weapons that tear apart tanks like wet paper bags. Or how about Nids are "the most adaptable" but their default detachment is "choose one at the start of the game and you're locked in forever" while the marine one is "choose one of three at the start of every turn and just adapt as you like." Expecting the crunch to live up to fluff is a sure recipe for disappointment. As for the game: you can build Nids in a lot of ways, but the vast majority of approaches are going to fail spectacularly thanks to niche rules, puzzling points costs, and stats that haven't kept up with the edition change. And even if you do try to double down on one particular angle of attack, you'll always be inferior to several other factions who do the same thing but better and for cheaper. If you want to be versatile, you actually have to have tools that work for the given task. It's a faction that CAN win, but only by playing towards objectives and scoring points while avoiding meaningful combat. If you ever try to actually FIGHT with your models, you'll find yourself cleaned up pretty easily. Which, you know, if all you want out of a faction is a chance at a W, sure. If you want to actually play the game of "bash your minis against other minis," you're going to be pretty bummed out by how ineffectual everything is.
