Very nice, is the plague marine section supposed to end like that?

Thanks for the catch, @Nordicus . I think I mentioned that FAQ in the next paragraph, but missed that line in my edits.

@scscofield yeah, that's their entry. It is a bit abrupt, I agree, so I added another example unit and a line summing up that it's a "short and sweet" entry.

Cool, they didn't really need more, just was as you said abrupt after the other 3

Some minor edits. Toned down the praise of the Noise Marines a bit to be more honest about their capabilities vs cost, and tweaked the Daemons Allies entry a bit for clarity.

Quote:
Consider not taking sonic blasters at all. I mean, 9 points more than a standard marine for 3 bolter shots when standing still? Not too cost-effective, most of the time:

> 125 - 5x Noise Marines with a Blastmaster. Small and effective. Can hold an objective well, can spit out a S8 AP3 small blast every turn. A fun unit to spam en masse as a Troops choice if you want to go full MSU. Still, a lot of other armies will get a lot more firepower per 125 points. Warp, honestly, you could get a Havoc squad with 2 autocannons and 2 missile launchers for the same price.

...

Do, however, bear in mind that thanks to how the "Daemon of [Chaos God]" special rule works, you can't put a Daemon IC into a CSM squad or a CSM IC into a Daemon squad, so you can't cross-pollinate your units, throwing Tzheralds into Havoc squads or something--unfortunate, but you can make it work. And no, "Daemon of [God]" and "Mark of [God] on unit with the Daemon rule" aren't the same thing: you can't throw a Herald of Slaanesh into a squad of, say, Possessed with MoS. The only unit in the CSM codex with the "Daemon of [God]" rule is the Daemon Prince, so that the two are basically the same across their codexes, but you of course cannot join a MC as a unit.

...

If you don't want to bring the Lord of Change, feel free to bring Be'lakor [in your Daemons Allied contingent] instead. Yup, that's right, Be'lakor can be taken by a Daemon or a CSM detachment! Wherever you need to fill an HQ slot, Be'lakor is there for you...
Working on the "From Hel's Heart" entry about Helbrute Formations now.

For some reason when I see the thread title, this LOTR quote keeps popping into my mind:

So... if you want, feel free to join me in thinking of the thread as "What to Do (Against Such Reckless Hate)."

And with that, I've edited the Helbrute Formation section into the post. Reminder: it's after Heavy Support and before the Daemons: Allies section.

Thank you for this (fine/astounding/great/anal. Take what pleases you most!) work, Mossy!
If i might make a suggestion: in order to feed the Google-Rancor, how about chancging the title to something more easy to stumble upon? (please don't beat me...)

Excellent work on this by the way. This is the stuff that helps drive this site. Rep incoming.

Please don't beat you? PLEASE DONT BEAT YOU? what are these spoiled children coming to, asking not to be beaten!

...but you make a good point, the Google-Rancor is a mighty beast that certainly needs feeding. I mean, I can't edit my title due to not having mod privileges, but I'm sure somebody else here would be able to. Hmm, what to call it...

"Updating 6e CSM for Playing in 7e" is a workable title, I guess, though somewhat dry.

Edit: oh, and, um, thanks for the praise, both of you. All of you, I guess.
