Very cool as well. Doesn't seem as strong as the RG one, but only because Bikes can't jump over other units to fully utilize the ability to charge after falling back. ^^

If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.


So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

That will make them blindingly fast. Dark and at levels. Which is kinda where my issue lies in this trait. You just have marines that feel like tankier dark and at now.

Shouldn't it be "...can move an additional 2" in addition..."?

RAW this would always move you a minimum of 2" when advancing, no?

 

I'm pretty sure they'll clear this up as intended... but on the other hand it would be quite funny to have the Scars always tumble forward a set distance minimum because they're so eager to get into combat :D

I love how disgustingly clean that banner is. It reminds me of some of the concept art Ralph McQuarrie did for Star Wars.


If you're using grimdark unironically you're part of the problem.

Very cool as well. Doesn't seem as strong as the RG one, but only because Bikes can't jump over other units to fully utilize the ability to charge after falling back. ^^


Nothing stopping whitescars players from using assault marines, vanguard veterans etc.

They will be amazing at hopping over screens.

They can shoot & charge too!

Looks incredible at a glance, but Hit&Run is not the powerhouse it once was, why? Voluntary Falling Back is now a thing.

 

WS tactics still require them to get into combat (not too hard with the speed) BUT more importantly, for the opponent not to just fall back from them - so it's actually a bit niche in that regard. It can however let you play he bait game VERY well as you can advance, take a charge and then fall back to your pals and go all in. Scout bikes would be nice for this.

That IH marine goofed up. Left his arm at home.

The 40k fluff explained to an outsider:

Some space elves got really into drugs and sex and a big scary monster got born that ate them.
A space wizard got beaten up by a guy who said he was his friend but wasn't and now he's on a life support machine and people worship him because he was super awesome.
Now there are giant men with rocket launcher machine guns and 4 hearts and are really super awesome who beat up everything.
Also there's a bunch of aliens but they don't really do anything and aren't as cool as the rocket machine gun super men, so who cares?

It is almost entirely bikes and loaded with Stormseers.

I really don't think it's that powerful in 8th ed unless you are against a dedicated assault army.

yeah it isn't all that niche... every time you get charged, fall back at the start of your turn (in many cases, marines dont get wiped out in CC except against CC monster units), light up enemy units with your armies ranged attacks to flavour and then charge back in if desired to finish things off (or engage a different unit entirely!)
