Probably, if we can get inside the gates.

Leave the minions at the bottom to provide suppressing fire while we climb the towers, murder the inhabitants and claim the guns. See if we can draw the vaunted crusaders out into the courtyard by temporarily stalling our "overly ambitious" assault, then drop the Marines on top of them to do some mass murder.

I'd like to hit one of their trucks, even if it's just so we can interrogate the drivers. Otherwise, or if they would tell us nothing, I'm all for rocking up in whatever beaten-up vehicle is to hand, maybe with an aquila crudely stencilled on the bonnet. Depends, do we want to talk inside to past the main gate, or talk inside to under the mountain?

If we're the representatives of the Imperial pick-up crew, we might be able to get inside the mountain and safe from the obviously chaotic men who damaged our lander. Explain we were directed here to where the loyalist crusaders are, request some assistance, see if they really are loyalists or not, have a look at their defences. Maybe even get deep enough in to cause a bit of havoc and catch their offworld mercs in a bit of a pincer movement when the Marines arrive.

It's only a few autocannons, they should be able to man-mode that poo poo anyway.

If I buy Greater Minion, can I trade in my role-boosted lesser minion for (rank 1 talent equivalent) 250 xp?

Also, can I make that greater minion a spooky psychic ghost? Boli would like a ghost friend.

Page 138, the "Improving Minions" section indicates that you can discard a minion talent and credit the exp towards a higher exp level of minion, and I'm fine with that.

I just thought I'd check. He would look something like this:

GREATER MINION, Nico

Nico was a shipwright, or possibly an astropath, or maybe he was a wandering minstrel in an Eldar court, it's difficult to remember. He's fairly sure he's dead though, and he blames the Imperium for it even if the specific details are lost to him.

Though he floats through the material world as a shade, Nico can shape the warp around him. His understanding is poor, his knowledge of how and when he came into such power is minimal, and his control and finesse are lacking. His absent minded nature and firm belief in his own death grates on many people, but he is most thankful to be out of his cage, and eager to get out into the galaxy once more.

Just as long as somebody else pushes the buttons.

Oooh, that could be fun. Go into the massive murder event, come out of it as a ministorum priest who has lost his unit, and *gasp* The unit history! Oh! The fire will have burned all our records! It was only last month that the Noble House minister refused our budget for fireproof safes.

Yo, I agree with the above.

On an entirely unrelated note, how would you feel about me rolling FL (something) to invoke a patron deity and spend some of the XP I have banked? I'm currently thinking about spending a moment in devotion and shedding a bit of blood to invoke Khorne and gain Weapon Training (chain), if and when it becomes necessary. If it fails, something interesting could happen. Interesting is always good.

It's a known problem with the whole series. Higher level play in all of them turns into a game of rocket-tag with anti-tank weapons, I'm not sure there is a way to fix it without significant alterations to the core mechanics.

Forge World? All the fun toys to hand, and a whole bunch of skitarii & servitors to carry them. If you really want to dick about with chaotic monstrosities (but still want us in the Imperium) there's always the option of stopping a world falling. Maybe the world needs to stay loyalist for an ongoing plan to work, maybe our boss hates the person in charge of making it fall, maybe they just want to establish us as a known force for good and heroism so we can get access to that shrine world and paint giant magenta cocks all over the kilometre high statue of the Emperor blessing Rowboat Girlyman.

I was thinking the scrub tier one that summons Ebon Geists and random lumps of chaos spawn and poo poo. Just draw a little circle on the floor of the car, chant a few syllables of the name of a dead god, when a confused looking glob of spirits pops through kick it over the side before it even knows what the gently caress.

How about this:



Camael, the Necron(?) Reaper

"Good, isn't it? A classic aesthetic. Paid for it with a bit of my soul I wasn't using. Not sure what it is, fellow I bought it from - DarkMech, probably working for an Oblit but wouldn't say - claims it's a man of iron. Cranial structure and neurolinguistic programming style suggests some sort of Necron to me, but if it is he's lost almost his entire consciousness. Seems to be an elite variety from the capabilities of the frame. The power scythe is an obvious recent addition, but he's pretty good with it."

He's completely vulnerable to anyone vaguely psychic or holy, and he only knows how to target one thing at a time with attacks that will miss most of the time. He's fine. I mostly just wanted him to float around and mope at people while annoying admech.

I did have yet another option. It's an eldar support weapon grav platform with a reaper autocannon sponson from a broken tank stuck on it. It's called SecRon.

On a completely unrelated note, there seems to be no way to get a pen score for your fists without using the Hammer Blow talent or the Warp Weapons trait (power fists don't count, obv.)

That makes it really hard to reliably hurt anyone with a damage soak of more than twelve. Scares the crap out of Guardsmen though.

I think the free radio broadcast should try and convince them that we are in fact the distraction for something much bigger. Lure an inquisitor and a team of first-founding Deathwatch to a planet where gently caress all is going on, and then keep them focussed there for an extended period? Without immediately spending all our resources on killing some/all of them?
