Re: The run to 8th edition

The other thing to mention from the twitter feed is that while Imperium and Chaos will be super-factions similar to AOS Grand Alliances - the Xenos will not. In his words Xenos are more granular. So having Imhotek as our neighbor does not mean we have a new buddy, although I think the Necron fluff i...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I totally missed Initiative disappearing though. I wonder how that will change CC after the first round. That's a really good question. Maybe it gets decided by the Movement or LD stat...or maybe the one whose turn it is decides who hits first or something like that. Apparently it goes to alternati...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Does this mean that we have to buy whatever replaces the codexes or will that be free as well? Basic unit rules may well be free - as in AOS and in line with putting them in the box with the models as they have been doing. There is no solid confirmation but I am expecting PDFs on the GW website on ...

Re: How do you actually deal with AV14 ?

Waiting for Crisis suits to arrive from reserves is an issue if you are dealing with AV14 transports. In that case one of the things to consider would be Piranha armed with Fusion Blasters in a Hunter Cadre. Zoom them 30" across the table using Ambushes & Feints to get into Melta range, app...

Re: Feel no pain and how to overcome it

But yeah a unit of 3 together with Longstrike are an actual thread to other tanks. However such a unit would be dedicated to anti-AV so Submunition rounds wouldn't make much sense there anyway. Much as I love the iconic Hammerhead as things stand in the closing days of 7th edition the Gunfort does ...

Re: Custom tau females and "rambo" like guy

For the most part it should be easy enough to paint up those models as having skintight suits rather than bare flesh. Now I know that this is a aesthetic that not everybody loves but it is a genuine Science Fiction aesthetic. It works better for the less armoured Pathfinder type models than for more...

Re: 1850 Pt List - For Upcoming Tournament

As I am sure you are aware this is not a very hard-hitting list by tournament standards, probably fine for having a ton of fun on the lower tables (which IMO are where fun is far more likely to be had anyway). The Skyray is not an easy thing to take in a Hunter Cadre, which is a huge pity but really...

Re: Feel no pain and how to overcome it

Take 5 markerlights Add Riptide, Ion Accelerator. Use 3 markerlights to go to BS6 so you can re-roll the Gets Hot. Use the other 2 to ignore cover. Repeat until problem goes away :biggrin: Honestly it is hard to miss a target that large. Basic massed shooting can get the job done on average - but if...

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 ...
