Re: 8th edition

Of course that info will hurt the sales but it's still a LOT better for GW than just one day dropping the new edition out of the blue. Releasing this info makes me think that the rumours of a June release are about right, sales of rulebooks/campaign books will be hard to achieve if everybody knows ...

Re: 8th edition

The way they word that change around movement stats - units having cool bespoke rules and you only need to learn the rules for your models - strongly points towards having full datasheets for each unit in the style of AoS. Having spent some time with the different publishing method of AoS rules I th...

Re: The Academy Project

With 8th edition seemingly imminent and looking to be a substantive change my personal feeling is that we put this project on hold so we can store up all our energies for when the new edition is out.

What does anyone else think?

Re: FE: RW + Taunar + crisis DS 1850

Your local store must run at a pretty brutal level if that is anything but an auto-win list. As for Ynnari it is too early to tell what most players will settle on as the best builds for that army. With options for nasty turn 1 charges vs alternatives of massed shooting multiple times per turn (incl...

Re: XV8 Crisis Loadouts for a starting player

The Airburst Fragmentation Projector is hugely situational but good for its designed role of dancing your suits just outside death range of a mob while whittling that mob down to size with large blasts. Whether it is staying out of charge range of orks or rapid-fire range of guard blobs that range i...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

A sniper drone team is a decent place to put an Ethereal. With their superior range you can happily put that team behind the main gunline yet well within range for the Ethereal to apply the elemental power of your choice. Majority T4 and Stealth are both helpful in keeping your Aun alive. If you are...

Re: Storm of Fire & Disembarking

The issue is the specific wording of the FAQ answer on this "No, non-psychic powers such as those described cannot be used by models embarked upon a Transport unless specifically noted otherwise" (BRB FAQ, P9) So the Ethereal cannot invoke any of his/her powers because at the start of the ...

Re: The Academy Project

I am not sure if I am really in a position to get this moving again. Ell'ran was running it all by PM rather than in any open forum so I do not think anybody else really knew what everyone was up to. I have not heard from Ell'ran in a few months so presuming Real Life has intervened we would be more...

Re: Retaliation cadre + Infiltration cadre

I am curious to hear if anyone has worked on this idea any further and how it is going for them. In particular has anyone tried to use the Stealth/Devilfish combo to get massed outflanking onto the the table edge of choice followed up by the massed drop of crisis suits? It seems to me that against s...
