Not because they need the survivability (they're tougher than the vehicle they're in, to be frank), but because the mobility they get is such an enormous boon. Chaos Space Marines / Thousand Sons Rubric Marines [PDF] Close. There are many accounts of the Space Wolves' assault upon Prospero -- some of which contradict each other. For whom or why he did it only he knows. Rather than being declarative proof that the Rubric can be reversed, it seemed to be a concession on the part of Tzeentch to give Ahriman a little hope and string him along for more giggles further down the line. Mobility is arguablily the most important stat in the game. Thousand Sons and Grey Knights are the only armies who can still spam smite, but you should be very careful doing it with regular Rubric squads because if you peril their sorcerer may explode, killing himself and taking along with some unlucky mooks from any nearby units, friend or foe so you might start a chain reaction (as well as preventing the squad from casting any more powers if they survive). The key to using them is still managing them intelligently (even knowing when to leave them at home), keeping them to their strong points, and synergizing them with the rest of the army. Rubrics are cursed with Slow and Purposeful, and unlike the other aligned Chaos Marines, do not have close combat weapons or bolt pistols. Rubric Marines can be Combat, Demolitions, and Veteran Specialists. The Sorcerer now knows one power from the Change Discipline and Smite, which does 1 or d3 mortal wounds rather than the normal d3/d6. Due to someone's fuck-up Tzeentch’s tampering with their gene-seed, the legion as a whole suffered horrifying, increasingly-debilitating mutations. Please check the images of the item above to make sure you are happy with the item before bidding. Anyway, the 4 Rubric Marines from yesterday have been painted!

Sure, they’ve had a 5+ invulnerable in previous editions but that wasn’t what they were really known for. What they are vulnerable to is being Tarpitted, due to their relatively lackluster number of attacks and immense focus on shooting to take advantage of their juicy AP 3 Bolter shots. Rubric Marines, also known as Rubricae, are disembodied spirits of Thousand Sons Marines trapped within their power armour.. Interestingly, in recent fluff it is implicated that Lucius may have altered the Book of Magnus after making Haathor Maat his bitch. So no more instant kills from the force weapon, mediocre-at-best weapon ability in sorcerer, can't choose psy powers anymore and has to randomize, squad still same drawbacks, in a world that gives everyone cover saves and pushes vehicles harder than ever before. Here you can find bits of the Warhammer 40,000 Thousand Sons Rubric Marines. The fact that All is Dust can also stack with a cover save, and also can apply to an invulnerable, makes them highly resilient. She does in a bid for Ahriman to save her, so she won't be driven mad by Tzeentch. What a dick. They also have access to a S5 AP3 Assault Cannon, which is actually pretty cool. They serve a similar tactical role in that they're absolutely tough as balls, but whereas the Plague Marines, owing to their diseased bulk, can resist large volumes of anti-infantry fire, the Rubric Marines, protected by dark sorcery, will shrug off even the most powerful hits from anti-tank weapons. 6. The sorcerers and lords of the Thousand Sons use these "Rubicae" as bodyguards and enforcers.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the parts necessary to assemble 10 Rubric Marines, armed with either Inferno boltguns or warpflamers. They've been known to get pre-5th Edition Necron players to rage-quit. This has an emotional effect on him, but the sneaky Eldar blows a hole in the webway, and all the un-rubric'ed marines get sucked into the warp. One model can be armed with a soulreaper cannon, one can carry an Icon of Flame, and one can be assembled as an Aspiring Sorcerer, who is armed with a force stave and either an Inferno bolt pistol or warpflame pistol. No pain to feel. I also painted my Vendetta gunship and 2 Tauroxes Prime. The Rubric Marines were once basic Marines in the Thousand Sons. At some point, trying to help fix this little mutation epidemic, a Sorcerer called Ahzek Ahriman used the knowledge he took from the Book of Magnus (which he was a bearer of), to find a way of curing his legion. Additionally, the dust containing the essence of the Rubric Marine can be recovered and be put into a new set of armor, effectively resurrecting them. The Thousand Sons were the XV Legion of the original twenty Space Marine Legions before turning traitor after their Primarch Magnus the Red.After the Horus Heresy they relocated to Sortiarius, the Planet of Sorcerers in the Eye of Terror, and dedicated themselves to the Chaos God of change, Tzeentch. This trolling of the poor Ahriman (who goes into nerd rage so hard even Khorne approves) is so great that Cegorach decides to lend his support to Ynnead. This generally sucked, since it meant that increasingly, members of the legion were turning into that which must never be named. The changes to Sorcerer rules and Force weapons were even worse - taking a unit that was legitimately a threat to one that struggles hard for a place in a meta with dozens of options. Ahriman himself, along with most of his cabal, was ecstatic: his brethren were now as he intended, protected from the "flesh-change," and the fact that they paid for this protection with the destruction of their physical bodies was in his eyes an acceptable price to pay. Rubric Marine: Soulreaper Cannon. However, the best part is their "All is Dust" rule, which gives them +1 to saves (including invulnerable saves) if the attack does 1 damage, giving them a 2+ save against small arms fire. 100% Upvoted.

This thread is archived. Take full advantage of their ability to shoot out of their transport, and use it in glorified Tzeentchian drive-by shooting, before disembarking in rapid fire range and warpfire-blasting a bitch. Two main theories that they either perform the scaled-down version of Rubric on other marines, or reanimate fallen ones by pulling their souls out of Warp and putting them into repaired/new sets of armour (The latter theory has been confirmed by Phil Kelly, but he also mentioned that the Black Legion uses the former version to make their own rubric marines). Or both. One model can be armed with a soulreaper cannon, one can carry an Icon of Flame, and one can be assembled as an Aspiring Sorcerer, who is armed with a force stave and either an Inferno bolt pistol or warpflame pistol. As I understand it they dont even have physical bodies anymore. For a time Magnus managed to stop this shit by striking a bargain with Tzeentch (for which he lost his eye BTW), but this worked only until the start of the Horus Heresy. With the exception of one marine who was returned (sans any personal memory) to a full normal body. Supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases.

At a glance, this makes them a very easy-to-target melee weak-spot, but in practice, this isn't quite true; they still have their beefy-as-shit 3+/4++ saves, and the Sorcerer's Force Weapon means that no MC worth their shit will get anywhere near them. To this end, he created a new Rubric, and broke through to the Planet of the Sorcerers in order to perform it. **All prices are for indicative purposes and subject to change without notice.

"And I will show you something different from eitherYour shadow at morning striding behind youOr your shadow at evening rising to meet you;I will show you fear in a handful of dust.". They can think, its just that they've lost all hope and purpose in life. Do you dream of drowning your enemies in a sea of mortal wounds? Worse, errata made it so Sorcerers had to take powers randomly with rolls as opposed to choosing them, which seriously cut down on the strategic elements of using this unit, since you no longer had the utility of that lone bit of choice giving you the option to use the squad more tactically based on said choice. This unit contains 1 Aspiring Sorcerer and 4 Rubric Marines. hide. Rubric Marines are amongst the most reliable and dependable troops choices in Warhammer 40,000.

In a pure Thousand Sons force (or Detachment), not only do they gain the advantage of being able to secure objectives against enemy units, they also gain access to a lot of synergies with other units, Stratagems and powers, both obvious and subtle. It can include up to 5 additional Rubric Marines (Power Rating +6), up to 10 additional Rubric Marines (Power Rating +12) or up to 15 additional Rubric Marines (Power Rating +18). It's ironic, as the fluff states, they were turned from a legion of scholars and book lovers, into mindless, walking power armors that can't even think!. Lore []. Chaos Space Marines / Thousand Sons Rubric Marines [PDF] mega.nz/ 0 comments. Thousand-Son-Sorcerer wrote: To your first point there are a couple of large differences between RM and regular Power Armor models, namely mobility and flexibility. On top of all that, they have slick new models. The Thousand Sons are little warbands or even singular Sorcerers with a few Rubric Marines as guards and servants. Rubric Marines are still an expensive unit that fills out a considerably specific role in the army, and while they've been given a degree of flexibility, they still more or less have the same strengths and weaknesses.

Their infernal weaponry spits plumes of warpfire into the ranks of the foe, flesh and molten armour exploding in all directions as salvo after salvo hits home.

Another day then. Stepping out from the fog of war come the Rubricae. For every 10 models, one Rubric can take a Soulreaper cannon. So Magnus kicked him out of the Thousand Sons, instead. This multi-part plastic kit contains all the parts necessary to assemble 10 Rubric Marines, armed with either Inferno boltguns or warpflamers. You can unsubscribe at any time. I’m sure I’m not alone in this, and with the new codex just released, it’s time to dust off your MK4 automatons and get them back on the battlefield. They also don't have grenades, so charging through a cover or blowing tanks with krak-grenades might be a problem, and even more so if they got caught in melee with AV11+ walker, since they're fearless and cannot choose to run away. What is beyond dispute, however, was the massive destruction they brought down upon Magnus' homeworld. Rubrics benefit heavily from having a Rhino Transport. Since the Rubric of Ahriman, the Thousand Sons have lost many of the Rubiks Cube Marines, but they still manage to keep their numbers at near thousand. They have their usual loadout of Inferno Boltguns, which they can replace with Warpflamers for maximum hurt in overwatch, and the Aspiring Sorcerer can take any force weapon and a Warpflame pistol to help them if they get in melee. Their AP3 Bolters and 3+/4++ saves, while once rather impressive, no longer have anywhere near the threat level they used to have, and with other armies getting major edition updates, the Rubrics were facing an uphill fight - especially since changes to the rules made Feel No Pain considerably stronger (ergo pushing Plague Marines even further ahead of their old Tzeentchian rivals. This meant absolutely any unit could gain a cover save, basically anywhere, and cover is one of the few things that, Psy Powers aside, the unit just has no ability to deal with, and since the Sorcerer was usually angling for Bolt of Change to kill transports, that's a pretty glaring vulnerability for a unit with a very specific tactical role. This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged. I mentioned it in my email to them. It took me about 5 hours to paint them all, so I couldn't get to the Skitarii Serberys Sulphurhounds today. report. share. However, in 8th edition when you take a closer look at them, it starts to become apparent. Rubric Marines on the other hand don’t really have the same reputation as being durable. Even within chaos a player could grab a baseline squad with two plasma guns and have better numbers (though none of the backup save) as part of the bargain! Whichever is creepier is up to you to decide. every psyker in the legion who was not powerful enough (virtually all of the Thousand Sons were psykers according to recent fluff) was reduced to dust and trapped as bound spirits within their sealed power armor for eternity, https://1d4chan.org/index.php?title=Rubric_Marines&oldid=694509. Due to a huge amount of Just As Planned dickery from a number of parties, it didn't work. They were also Finecast, because fuck you.

Tactics: Rubric Marines are one of those awesome looking units that you want to play, but find yourself never really being able to justify using in your lists because of their price point. Oh, well. Suffice to say, they can carve through a squad of MEQ effortlessly, and, prior to their massive Tomb Kings in Space update, fielding one squad of intelligently-managed Rubric Marines essentially guaranteed victory against a typical Necron player (or current-gen Tyranid player; thanks a fucking bunch, Cruddace). Many of these undying warriors were psykers in their own right, before an ancient curse damned them to an eternity as living husks – their baroque power armour now contains nothing but sparkling dust. Rubric Marines can sport either an inferno bolter or a warpflamer, and one can take an Icon of Flame (beginning of Psychic phase, roll 1 D6, on a 6, nearest enemy within 12″ regardless of LoS takes 1 mortal wound, TROLOLOLOLOL).

He crafted a way to undo the mutations plaguing the legion, and cast an incredibly powerful spell called the Rubric of Ahriman. This combination of factors took what was previously a fairly effective unit against MEQs, holding terrain, and terrorizing medium infantry - and completely demolished its tactical role, turning it into an inefficient unit that struggled for any relevance against a backdrop of other chaos units doing the same thing better. Rubric Marines got a rules update along with the general Tzeentchian overhaul in the new Chaos supplement that was part of the War Zone Fenris pack. Or he was a temporary agent of Tzeentch at the time (JUST AS PLANNED). Also the new Discipline of Tzeentch makes the Sorcerer less likely to be unuseful, although the new discipline can be prone to random rolls and FUN. A huge part of Ahriman's initial post heresy activities was trying to reverse the effects of the Rubric by, somewhat counter-intuitively, performing the Rubric again but doing it right this time.
