I always use a Cortus with extra armour, fist, chainfist and two grav guns.
Works like a charme against tanks and any other stuff.

-blinks and looks- You know, Gorgoff, dude, I had thought it would be cost prohibitive but... looking at it now, it's still cheaper than a contemptor prime CCW equivalent.  Eek, I may have to try that too as it sounds great.  Good idea there, mate. 

 

Now... how to really go about modeling contemptor-cortus convincingly.

The IV. Contemptor looks just fine for that purpose with all his cables, improvised armour plates etc

Have a look:

Oh man, you weren't kidding.  That fits the bill perfectly, Gorgoff.  I kept thinking they were closer to the XIXth's contemptors and more heavily ornamented with their silver skulls.  Man, even the banding can easily be painted as simple thermoplast banding (à la mk. V plate).  Yeah, I may well have to pick up a pair of IV as Cortus boys.

I usually run this version of the cortus in a dreadclaw. I LOVE it

Seen some people using plastics Kastellan Robots as base for a cortus, seeing as Dreads and imperial Robots are all similar in origin it's a cool shout.

Preferred method(s) for painting SoH green?

Found this, but looking to get the community’s take.

Call me Indy. It's less syllables.

Why are Reavers so expensive? 350 points for a 10 man squad with Volkite Chargers, Chainaxes, and Jump Pack seems absurd.

I would tend to agree. I've been toying with the idea of reavers for a while but they do seem pretty expensive once you give them some upgrades.

I love the idea of volkite & jump pack but it does seem quite cost prohibitive for what you get.

 

Rule of cool, however, cares not for points efficiency!

They're from a time when everything was just... More expensive...

 

Given another run through in a legions book or FAQ they'll probably get either a points drop or an options/ rules change to make them worth it.

 

The best way to look at them is Jump Pack Veterans but with the options of things like Chainaxes or becoming compulsory troops without a RoW.

 

Outflanking a reasonably sized squad with a few combi-weapons to shoot isn't a bad idea at all.

Greetings!

 

It seems, that I will be attending on a tournament in March, and I'd like to take my SoH army. It is a small tournament with only 1500 point (not ZM though...), and it seems like a perfect opportunity, to finally have a game or two, after the long waiting. 

I choose the Sons, because they are far from completion, and this would give me a chance to cut some loose ends, and to have a painted army.

It seems, that I will be facing mostly Legiones Astartes armies, but I saw some cults, militia and Mechanicum too.

 

Currently I have 3 Veteran Squads (one with melta, one with heavy bolters, one with plasma), 10 regular Tactical Marine, 5 Tartaros Terminators, a Chaplain, 2 Rhinos, 1 Vindicator and one Contemptor Dreadnought at my disposal, but I would like to get some Justaerins too in the coming months.

 

What would you suggest? What to take, or what would I need to have a solid force? I'm really excited, but on the other hand I have zero experience with the XIVth...

I used to be a regular Space Marine, just like you. - but then I took the Horus Heresy in the knee...
