No need for sarcasm brother, the Tyrant is generous.

 

Which is why all players (because they are Secessionist)  receive the following:

 

New Talent:  Maelstrom Warders (500xp)

The Astartes of the Maelstrom bent every nerve and sinew to protect their demesne, often working hand in glove with other Astartes and forming bonds of brotherhood only seen amongst the dark ages of the Heresy or the tight-knit brethren of the Deathwatch.

 

A Character who has this Talent, counts as having all the benefits of "Forging the Bond" (p.226 Deathwatch RoB)

 

This will extend to everyone as there are no Tacticals in KT: Cerberus.

 

Remember all free advances and GM awards count towards your XP gains, even if you didn't buy them.

So for the 1k xp expenditure I'm thinking for Sev:

 

Mighty Shot (500xp Devastator Rank 1)

Dodge (300xp General Space Marine rank 1)

BS improvement; Basic (200xp Devastator Rank 1)

 

 

AS for his specialization I'm having a hard time deciding between Immovable Warrior and Unrelenting Devastation... Considering the Semi-Auto nature of the AC, Immovable Warrior is nice for the +10 to hit when I'm in cover, but at the same time doing extra mag damage in squad mode is helpful too, again due to the nature of the weapon that Sev uses.

 

Thoughts?

Dont space marines have dodge trained baseline?

I think the +10 will help more since the autocannon will end up being used in a more target priority elimination role vs horde clearing. We also still have frag grenades and a bunch of assault marines I think.

 

Also, still writing up Aramandus' intro post. Lots of beheading.

That's the thing Slips, I's kind of unclear if they do or not, in several placed Dodge shows up as a trainable skill for Space Marines, if it is already trained than I need to figure out something else for 300xp for Sev.

I think its just for redundancy since they do explain that we start with a pre-spent 13k xp.

 

Also, it can never hurt boosting your toughness to 50+ for TB10 to reduce damage taken.

This is true, perhaps I'll pick up another bit of toughness...

 

Eidt:

 

Humm doing that would mean I have to have to give up the advancement on my BS to get it north of 50 for starting...

Dodge is a trained skill for all Marines, you (Steel) can however pick up the increases from the Codex Advances in HtC, albeit the Dodge +10 costs 400xp.

 

On your BS Stat quandary, I would suggest this is where your lust for an Autocannon is going to vex you a little bit.

 

Your choices matter ;)

Oh I'm going to stick with the AC, just working out the math on how to weight things in my favor for BS tests...

Just checking in and hoping all is well with everyone.

 

I'm still working with a couple of players via PM, so progress continues, although I am hoping we can move forward on a few things before too long, but of course real life is getting in the way as usual.

 

For the Tyrant!

Good to see you are all holding up!

Also just got (sent) home from work. We are apparently establishing a sort of emergency presence and on call duty reserve schedule to keep things running till mid April at least. I am on the reserve list this week. Will have to see how that turns out. But, yay! Get to spend more time with my wife :)

Also might have unexpected time to get my char worked and running. ;)


All praise be to Grandfather Nurgle... uh... the Tyrant. Of course.
