Warhammer 40000

Can space marine terminators teleport?

Technically they do, but it only works when they come onto the battlefield, and its called Deep Striking. What happens is you put them in reserves, and roll for them each turn as to whether or not they come on. If they do, then you choose a spot for them to come on to, and then roll for scatter like you would for artillery fire.

Ice Hockey
Ice Hockey History
Warhammer 40000

What team is the best to ever play hockey including international teams NHL teams and all-star teams?

The greatest hockey team to ever hit the ice was that of the 1981 Canada cup soviet union team. With Vladislav Tretiak, Slava Fetisov, Alexie Kasatanov, Sergei Makarov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Krutov and many other terrific players, the Soviets downed the gretzky led Canadians 8-1, holding Gretzky scoreless.

Another PossibilityWhile the Soviet team from the 1981 Canada Cup is a reasonable , you could have MANY different s based on this same logic. The 8-1 deficit may have just been a terrible game played by Team Canada. The fact that the Soviet Team was an all-star team that played together all year gave an unfair advantage. If the 1981 Team Canada team played year round, or multiple years in a row, you can be assured they would be considered the best hockey team ever assembled.

Other teams that come to mind are the 1987-88 Team Canada, and the 1976-77 Montreal Canadiens team that were absolutely spectacular with only 8 losses all season in an 80 game schedule. This was the start of their first of four straight Stanley Cup Championships.

What is the points cost of a chaos space marine havoc squad?

In my personal opinion, they serve as a 'specialist' squad so to speak. Much like the Chosen, you can slap a few meltas/plasmas/flamers in their, and if you put them in a Rhino, you can drive around and pick at your enemy. This is probably the most popular route.

Alternatively, you can do a 'meat shield' tactic. If you have ever used Oblits, i'm sure you've had a problem with them being targeted. With Havocs, you can have your 4 heavy weapons [I personally use 3 missles for hordes/light vehicles and a lascannon just to have that extra lascannon XD] and then have say..6 more Bolter marines, and have them all in your Rhino. That means you can distribute those 6 wounds to your regular bolter marines. This is personally what I do, and I've had moderate success.

Warhammer 40000

What is the best undercoating for warhammer 40k models?

It depends on what colour scheme you are painting your army for example something like White Scars Space Marines it's best to use a white or grey undercoat but Chaos Space Marines look much better with a black undercoat. I always use black to undercoat my models because then you can drybrush over it, leaving black in the recesses to give the effect of shading. You could also paint your models in the foundation paints before adding another coat on top.

Warhammer 40000

Can necrons team up with chaos space marines?

Theoretically, any faction can team up with another, as long as you have a good enough reason. Technically, Necrons and Chaos are enemies, so they would never 'team up', per se, but one could create a feasible story in which they both work to exterminate the Imperium. They wouldn't be working 'together' (because Necrons would kill any living thing--including Chaos Marines--on sight) but they would have the same goal.

Can you make your Space Marines into Chaos Space Marines or do you have to buy specially made Chaos Space Marines?

You can do it yourself, all you'd need to do is add a few spikes here and there, and then it's all up to how you paint it. If you paint on a few demon faces here and there, as well as the mark of Chaos, they'd be convincing enough to pass as Chaos Space Marines.

Sergeants usually wear some kid of mark that shows their rank: different color on the helm, gauntlets, shoulder-pads etc. But also different weapons, armor, a flag, etc.

How many dice do you need for warhammer 40000?

It really depends on the kind of army you're fielding. But mostly, it's your choice. If you have an army that has low points per model (ie. Imperial Guard, Tyranids) you may want to have lots of dice. And even though this should go without saying (and yes, for you veteran players, this does happen) Do not play with only one die. With one die, you'll end up looking like the worst kind of noob to the game, and that's a stupid noob.

How many men do you need to play Warhammer?

There is no set amount of 'men' required to play Warhammer, as it is a points and unit based system. Each character or unit of 'men' (Elves, dragons, Chaos Space Marines, Monsters... the list goes on) is worth a set amount of points. When you play a game or Warhammer 40,000 or Warhammer Fantasy, you and your opponent will agree on a certain points limit for the battle.

You select units for your army, ensuring that the sum total of their points does not exceed the total agreed upon by the waring parties. The force you select also has to include certain elements, and these differ between then Warhammer systems.

To play a Warhammer 40,000 game, you have to have a HQ (Commander type character) and two units of troops.

For Warhammer Fantasy you must take a Lord, and two units of core.

Warhammer 40000

What are the rules for monstrous creatures in warhammer 40 000?

Normal is from rulebook, bold italic subscript is from me. Quote "Warhammer 40,000 Rulebook page 51 in the rules section."


These terrifying monsters tower over their opponents,

butchering all the enemies who face them and hurling

tanks out of their path. Greater Demons, Eldar Avatars

and Tyranid Carnifexes count amongst their number.


All monstrous creatures have the 'move through cover'

special rule (see page 75*). They simply bash their way

through trees and ruins!


Instead of firing a single weapon, monstrous creatures

can fire two of their weapons once per Shooting phase.

They must, of course, fire both of them at the same

enemy target. In addition monstrous creatures have

the 'relentless' special rule (see page 76**).

Unless otherwise specified in their special rules,

monstrous creatures cannot go to ground, voluntarily

or otherwise. In addition, for a monstrous creature to

be in cover, at least 50% of it's body (as defined on

page 16) has to be in cover from the point of view of

the majority of the firing models. Also standing in area

terrain doesn't automatically confer a cover save to

monstrous creatures - the 50% rule takes precedence.

Cover for them works exactly as for vehicles (see page

62). As usual, if you cannot clearly tell if 50% of the

model's body is covered, modify it's cover save by -1***.


All wounds inflicted in close combat by a monstrous

creature ignore armour saves, just like those from a

power weapon. In addition, monstrous creatures roll an

additional D6 for armour penetration (2D6 + Strength)

when attacking a vehicle in close combat.


Some units of infantry are especially adept at moving

through difficult terrain. Units with this rule roll an extra

D6 when rolling to move through difficult terrain. In

most circumstances this will mean that they roll three

D6 and pick the highest score.


Unlike common infantry, some powerful warriors like

monstrous creatures, jet packers and bikers can

advance while firing their weapons at full capacity.

Relentless models can shoot with rapid fire and heavy

weapons counting as stationary, even if they moved in

the previous Movement phase, and are also allowed to

assault in the same turn they fire them.

Note that a relentless independent character must still

abide by the assaulting limitations of any unit it has

joined, if the unit is not itself relentless.

***In all books written by Games Workshop, -1 save actually means 4+ to 5+ or something like that and +1 or +2 means 5+ to 4+ or 5+ to 3+ respectively (this is the books written by games workshop I've read.

****In the actual rulebook there is an asterisk here, which is explained in this paragraph from page 74:

The special rules marked with an asterisk (*) are

automatically lost by an independent character joining

a unit that does not have the same special rule.

These rules are also lost by a unit that is joined by an

independent character that does not have the same

special rule.

Do you have to use Games Workshop miniatures for playing Warhammer 40k?

Yes, because each miniature has been given appropriate (and fair)charactaristics by Games Workshop so it would be unfair to have random ones.
