well is more like a nerf atomic bomb dropped on us,

our unique doctrine does almost nothing now

and our chapter tactic got nerfed , no more 5+ OW ,

still we can be competitive.

 

the way the game is played now, objective centric, with our resilience, i think we are in a good place.

 

my top 3 units now are:

 

1 - Redemptor dreadnought, bc new rules , lots of dakka and wounds

2 - intercessors, same reason 8th, fnp 5+ 

3 - Dreadnoughts in general,  shoot and punch, terrain cover

Anything that can really capitalize on turn one alpha strike. Move them heavies up, dakka yourself an advantage and then outlast the remaining opposition with your superior durability. I have a feeling that IH will really like the new Gladiator. Invictors may still have use to drop on an objective and help with dakka. Stalker boys in the back, Bolt Rifles at the front.


Be excellent to one another, and lean on your brothers and sisters when your patience grows slim

invictors are awesome, but the price increase was above average

 

intercessors blobs with 5 + fnp are good, the thing is ,  you cant make master apothecary bubble reach all objetives with intercessors camping

I'm really liking how the Outriders play. A fast element in our lists help push the board more as I'm trying to get away from the Ferrios bubble.

I’m eager to tool up the outrider sarge with the teeth of mars and go finish off vehicles or go primaris hunting.

Haven't thought of that one yet! So far I've used two squads and hunted softer targets and tagging vehicles in combat. Usually paired with a captain on bike for support. 

 

This weekend I'll be trying out a list I wanted to do since 8th and it will probably go horribly but I am excited.

Don't forget to take the Chaplain Outrider with the Chapter-specific Litany for +1 Strength.

I don’t think there’s one best unit... Iron Hands are super resilient which is so important this edition. To me it’s all about the synergy .

When non-primaris go to two wounds all of those units will be super tough. I've a squad of jump vanguard with hammers and shields that can be hard as nails as it is, double wounds will probably take them out of casual lists.

What do you think are some good CC units we can use? I'm trying to round out my list and have some CC element in case I face a CC army. I was kinda thinking Bladeguard Veterans with a Apothecary.

I like Cataprachtii terminators the best... good invul, can swing fists at BS2, best armor save and combi bolters still rock. Don’t forget to shoot the grenade harness.

Termies with three wounds sounds good, but i dont think that non-veteran marines will get another wound.

GW confirmed that all “fully fledged” marines are going to 2 wounds, including grey knights and chaos.

Pretty sure it is good news for Iron Hands. Especially for my firstborn army I'm building right now. I'm sure more good news will come with the new dex.

I'm still having lots of joy with my Leviathan (especially as CP does not seem to be a real issue anymore)

Leviathan + 2 Storm Cannon Arrays

- Stratagem : Hero Of The Chapter (gain Warlord Trait)

- Stratagem : March Of The Ancients (gain "character", +1 Attacks & +1 Leadership)

- Warlord Trait : All Flesh is Weakness (on a 5+ that wound is not lost)

 

Then sometimes boosted with

- Wisdom Of The Ancients

- Mercy Is Weakness

- Ironstone

- Duty Eternal

I think termies of all stripes are going to rock this edition.  The 3rd wound means you have a reasonable average chance of getting something out of the FnP, which means, on average, we are rocking 4 wound termies (and that's before the Happy Apothecary buffs them).  Add the changes to Flamers means you have good utility on the Heavy Flamer off the deepstrike.  And the general increase in AP across the board due to combat doctrines and such means that 5+ Invuln sets a ceiling that may actually even be useful for protecting termies.
