ok I think I just heard one of the dumber things that may be in the new marine codex.

Marine special characters could be arch-types??  So everyother army is restricted in their special characters but two space marine players can take the same rules for a special character but just call him something different?  Weak, thats it I'm making Rhazkull Buttrokka "the profit of your mom."  He's not Ghaz but he has all the same rules.

I'll team him up with "kinda Crazed Hmo Surgeon Dirtsnot" +5 plus invul saves for everyone.

Welcome to the land of Space Marine players.  Please cut off your education at the 4th grade and enjoy your stay.  If you whine long enough, we will give you anything and everything you want. (Assaulting and deepstriking with power weapons in the same turn)

Data Sheet Idea.
I just built a Necron AA gun tower.  I'm basing the points on the IG Hydra Flak-Tank.  Do you think the point cost is OK?

Cost 200 pts
Weapons 4 AA gauss cannons   Range:48, Str:7, AP:4, Heavy 4, Gauss, AA mount

BS 4, Armor; F12 S12 R12

Counts as Immoble, but has Deepstrike (same as the Pylon Special Deployment)
Living Metal
Same Damage effects as pylon (No driver, and no engine) except each weapon destroyed effect takes away one of the Gauss cannons because it has no flux arc.

Rich I inspired you too do what  exactly?? Because I have been the abscure muse for some rather insidious things before.  And I just want to publicly state that I fully support you in the name of Kevin.



And Ron,  I think that sounds like a good idea for an AA gun.

Sounds like a pretty good sheet to me. How were you going to model it?

Tigurius for the ultra marines is cheese

he can use 3 phychic powers a TURN

then, as long as hes in your army, not even having to be on the field he can make ANYONE re-roll there reserves roll

which works well in apoc since you choose who is coming on and not rolling reserves ;)

As for special Characters, I will pull for Vulkan if Cookie is going tyranids, otherwise I think i will be going with Pedro(COUNT AS) since Paul is most definitely orkez

With choreography that blows the cast for Thriller out of the water i think my buggies synapse is far better than whatever Tigurias could do with 3 psychic powers a turn.

*starts playing Radio Free Zerg*

Hive Mind ftw! Hah!

You all can't handle the sheer power of the dance.

Mass psychic scream and perils of the warp, biatch! Good luck passing a psychic test. Our dance blows your mind.

Eh, psychic powers are for weakling witches.

I need nothing but an axe!
