Re: 2000 PT Stealthrider Cadre (Special OPs fun!)

Looks like a ton of fun, not perhaps for all your opponents but that's how strong concept lists tend to be. If you really want to wreck face with those drones consider adding a Cadre Fireblade. 6 shots each against anything that strays within 9" is insane when you have 48 gun drones on the table.

Replacement / Alternative Vespid wings

My third unit of 6 Vespid are looking very sad and lacking wings, which after a couple of weeks of looking I am going to have to conclude I have permanently lost.

So does anyone have any good suggestions for where I could get replacement wings - or suggestions for good alternatives?

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

What do people think of kroot hounds? They are super cheap, very fast and will be useful at trying to engage vehicles allowing us to get some respite from razorback spam or whatever is flavour of the month. The models are terrible and they cost a fortune ( money wise ) but I'm thinking 3 x 10 hound...

Re: The MantaCore

At a similar power level I have been moving towards Commander, 4 x Fusion blaster 12 Vespid Stingwings Stealth Team, Drone Controller 8 x Drone 8 x Drone Very similar concept. So far I am really liking Stealth suits as carriers for the Drone Controller, an opponent is almost always making a mistake ...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

10 Kroot attacks probably kill a Marine, or ~3 guardsmen. Using Counter Attack, it's a pretty niche application, likely used for late game objective defense or to try and preserve a Kroot squad that was charged by the remnants if a couple squads, but I was trying to be thorough. On paper I can see ...

Re: Designer's Commentary - 'FAQ' for 40k 8th!

I agree with most of the stuff, but the logic of rerolls and modifiers is stupid and will greatly complicate the game. Oh and gets hot also got nastier - for example shooting with overcharge profiles on heavy weapon after moving means that on roll of 2 you will get fried and won't get the chance to...

Re: Riptide overnerf?

If you support a Riptide with Drones (which you should) it is incredibly durable. Your opponent has to get up close enough to use anti-horde weaponry on the Drones before they have a chance of taking down the Riptide with the high-output weapons. However I broadly agree with your analysis, as do the...

Re: Designer's Commentary - 'FAQ' for 40k 8th!

Ok so question already. Are we supposed to be rolling multiple saves for multiple damage attacks? If I take an attack of 6 damage I roll 6 saves? Or is this only for the special abilities (stim injector/warlord trait in our case) I think the FAQ cleared that one up pretty well. One save prior to ro...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

I'd add Tactical Drones as competition. Based on pure stats they do the whole screening thing worlds better and if you want to deploy them outside of your deployment zone turn 1 you can do that with various Battlesuits as well. Largely agreed and updated as such. Gun Drones are competition for almo...

Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

I believe it is still far too early for us to have the experience on the table for full Academy articles. On the other hand I do think our community can put together some useful information for those trying to adapt to the new game - so long as it is based on at least some actual play. Having manage...
