Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

An interesting point of view. With 12 drones, it goes over 500p, though... more or less 3 Hammerheads. Oh, just noticed that you exchange the drone bay for TWO skyspear missile systems. Oh boy, now it has became quite alluring. 2D6 S6 AP-2 Dam2 for no cost? :neutral: The Ion Cannons can be converte...

Re: ITC rules

They have discussed the issue of going first if you deploy first on their podcast, essentially they think it creates an imbalance for some specific armies such as Imperial Knights.

Using power levels for kill points is really nice, I might drop them a question on how that works with attached drones.

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

My first impressions: - Tigershark Fighter-Bomber. The old drone-carrying Tigershark can exchange them for a S6 missile launcher. I don't see much use for it, as a Barracuda can fire as much S7 as it and is way cheaper. It's basically a two-Barracuda-in-one deal I love how we can get such different...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

Played another game, this time against CSM. As he had Terminators plus a Lord and a Sorcerer waiting on Teleporters I put my 3 units of kroot out as a screen to push them back and as a speed-bump for the incoming Khorne Berzerkers and Bloodthirster (with that silly psychic power to double its moveme...

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...
