    I've wondered why CB hasn't started offering 32mm bases for some stuff. This tends to be an issue with Heavy Infantry it seems, wouldn't be beyond belief to just shift the HIs to 32mms.

    That's a silhouette issue I guess.
    Plus the fact that you need to tell people to rebase their HIs to larger bases (and/or sell conversion rings) => additional cost or effort to invest for the players.

    Bases matter in the game mechanics though. Being on a 25mm base allows you to go places or avoid penalties that the larger bases can't. it also makes it harder to hide behind terrain. Being on a 25mm base makes them stronger in that regard.

    Even the mighty Tariq needs to go prone in order to enter an objective room because the drugs made him too big. That Haidao or Hsien can just walk in like a boss.

    If you think that's a bad sniper pose take another look at new Knauf.
    People have problems with Nisse sniper because he's not looking in the same direction the barrel is pointing. But it's not as bad as HMG Nisse, who appears to have been distraught or shocked so much even his coat jumped. Try getting *that* into cover!
    Aquila and Sepulchre at least have the excuse of looking cool and menacing with their coats. Nisse just looks scared.

    But on the upside it allows you to make this

    Played 40k, got my butt handed to me by mechanized Space Dogs. I did not have anywhere near enough antitank firepower in my Deathwatch. Handled the infantry OK, just couldn't deal with the vehicles.

    Need to get a game of Infinity in soon!

    Next weekend should be a range day, which will be good for my stress levels. Nothing like a quiet day at the shooting range for some good 'group therapy'!

    Edit:
    Class Name Power
    HQ - Primaris Watch Captain (army CO) 6

    3x Troop - Alt Intercessor Squad (mixed) 14
    5x Intercessor 5
    1x Hellblaster +2
    1x Inceptor +3
    1x Aggressor +2
    2x Reiver +2

    Elite - Primaris Apothecary 4

    Elite - Reiver Squad 11
    5x Reivers 6
    +5x Reivers +5

    Heavy - Hellblaster Squad 16
    5x Hellblaster 8
    +5 Hellblasters +8

    Total: 98 Power

    Combat squadded the Reivers and Hellblasters. Going to add a second Hellblaster squad and maybe something to count as a Corvus Blackstar or two to deal with the vehicles.

    It's not you, it's your list. Primaris are not good by default (hellblasters require an Ancient to be worthwhile). Only use for Primaris in the Deatwatch is as bodies where to glue the DW bits, Veterans are the answer to everything. Antitank can be done with Dreadnoughts, however.

    My pure DW detachment is made of 3x squads of 1 basic bike, 1 termie (storm bolter, energy sword), 1 Vanguard (double hand flamer) and 7 Veterans (storm bolter, storm shield) to be deployed in the face of the enemy (use the +6' ammo for Rapid Fire and AP-1, so you output 36 shots per unit, unless you are nuking a Big Bad like Magnus, use the "wound on 2+" there), a Watch Master with the "recover spent CP on a 5+", a Thor (Watch Captain with Jump Pack, storm shield and big 1h hammer, and a possible Beacon Angelis to "call" another DW unit), and the rest depends on points and if I'm souping (IK Styrix, magnetized so I can deploy as other IKs of that size, + 3x skitarii and 2x techpriests, since I have no IG models at this moment). I have a Dreadnought, a Contemptor, and a Leviathan for anti-tank business if needed (the Dread can be deployed thanks to the Beacon Angelis if it's a short range burner, or as one of the three units by teleportarium), and I will be getting some rhinos from the Warhammer Conquest that will be magnetized to be used as Whirlwinds, Rhinos, Predators, or Razorbacks (or other options, depending on what I can convert to).

    The good primaris are the Infiltrators (area denial for enemy DR) and Eliminators from Shadowspear, sadly they won't go into Deathwatch (at least for now), but are good as Raven Guard for example.

    I'm currently balancing my future shopping regarding the Apocalypse boxes... Valliant + 2 "free" Armigers or the IG heavy detachment (3 leman russ, 1 chimaera, 1 heavy weapons squad of 3, 1 cadian command group)...

    Everyone's seen it already after the Defiance feed posted it overnight, but might as well repost it here...

    Touché.
    Still want an unmasked morat lady though! And they kinda are space Oni if you go by the RPG. Apparently, female morat have horns.

    And here I thought the Nisse trusted in the heart of cards. Where is his black mage card? And that duel gauntlet thingy?

    Glad to hear I'm not the only one. I've been waiting since I came across the Morats two years ago. Hopefully at least one of the future Zerat resculpts will produce the unmasked female that we all want. There are only a handful of Morat models/units that showcase the males' species' facial features so it is not asking much for at least a single female model to showcase a bare face.

    I'm quite curious about them. Do they have a similar face as the male or are they different!

    That..... that fits way too much. Why hasn't it happened yet?!

    I have one player I know would want to wait for the CA rpg book and his own female Morat mini to go with her. Can't wait for both. I'd love mini's, but in the interm, even some official artwork would be nice.

    If they never make one, I'll probably end up making my own unmasked mini. I'll just need an extra Oznat body and to find a good head.
