    Default Where Did Big Red's Original Article Go? It Was Good!

    Troops, what happened to Big Red's original article on this? I feel like I just read it a couple of days ago on the front page of BoLS. I thought it was well written and I was suggesting the article to a friend. Now I can't find it? Would one of you fine fellows post a link to the original "Mark 2 Space Marines" article so that I can pass it along to a friend? Thanks in advance. Cheers. Cope

    I'm referring to the article that suggests using the new Space Marine codex to represent CSM... suggests that the Iron Hands chapter traits would nicely represent the Iron Warriors... says ok, we'll lose some units that we mostly don't care about but will gain more good things... it might have even started "I really wanted to like the CSM codex. I really did." Have I lost my mind? I swear, I just read this article!

    I just figured it out. I'd read two excellent articles recently: Big Red's and the one on Spikey Bits. They made many of the same points. The Spikey one can be found at http://blog.spikeybits.com/2013/09/c...egion-wtf.html... it goes hand in hand with Larry's article. I'm glad I'm not losing my mind! Keep up the good work, Bigred! Cheers. Cope

    yeah I've completely dropped the power armour from my list, still running the terminator plate and daemonic equivalents, but I don't know if that will last with grav guns being tailor made to pulp us at a fraction of the cost (centurion devs)

    I do run a pair of drakes, but its a mother****ing dragon whats not to love. To me its like having an a-10 warthog in the list, and I just keep getting the image from reign of fire where the dragon strafes the tank column in my head...AWESOME!

    Rampant specumalation time!!!!

    So, the Marine Codex presents the Chapter Tactics which are cool, without being bent. They add flavour to a given chapter, and present a reward of sorts for picking a primogenitor Legion.

    Do you reckon we'll see something broadly similar in the (apparently) forthcoming mini-dexes for CSM? If so, what do you reckon we'll see?

    i assumed we'd see something like odd marks, perhaps, where you'd pay x points to get a mark that would be mandatory for the legion youre playing.
    idk what to expect: the farsight supplient had my hopes up as far as the books go, but it seems the BL book really dropped the ball. Then again, BL is the Ultrasmurfs of the Spikey Mareenz.

    My favorite traitor legion thats not given over to a specific god would be the night lords. I'd LOVE to see them have fear (useless as it is) as a Army wide addition. A NL specific rule that makes Units taking a morale check due to shooting from a unit that appeared from deep strike take penalties for lost models like in the assault phase: i think a rule like this would accurately represent the night lords 'ambush and terror' tactics without going to Tau levels of breaking the rules, as well as bypassing without nerfing ATSKNF. In short, my unit lost 4 models this shooting phase from deep striking unit x, so its morale is taken @ -4 penalty, as opposed to on normal leadership.
    I would also allow NL units to deepstrike if otherwise unable, with a different mishap: representing the ambushes, while still forcing Termies and Raptors to come in via teleport and swooping in respectively. for instance, A unit of Night Lord CSMs could deep strike, effectively waiting in ambush. when you drop the unit, you place and scatter normal: if you scatter off the table, remain in reserves and lose deep strike (we screwed up the ambush, walk into the battle), if you scatter into an enemy unit, that those units are now locked in close combat and the Ambushing unit strikes this round @ initiative 1 (they stumbled on us) Otherwise, avoid impassable terrain, and no casualties for difficult/dangerous.
    Finally the night Lords would get +1 attack in cc whenever attacking a unit with a lower leadership: NL's prefer to attack weaker enemies whenever possible.

    On a sidenote Forgeworld released a video that showed the Night Lords Legion traits, pretty awesome.
