Re: Vehicle movement

Also worth noting that spinning has no benefit in 8th given that armour facing doesn't exist, that weapons no longer have firing arc (they can all shoot 360°), and that troops don't have to disembark from a door. True, but long vehicles or models with long bases (bikes) still get an illegal advanta...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I guess Dal'yth and Ke'lshan will be done by FW? With T'au, Vior'la and Farsight Enclaves, these make 5 Septs. To get to the... seven? chapter tactics number, we're missing two. I think Bork'an will star as well, as it is very famous. The other one - maybe Sa'cea? It's military might is comparable t...

Re: What happens to the attached gun drones if a devilfish dies?

True, the rule says they are treated as being embarked, so I'm going to treat them like passengers. Man, us tau have a lot of available kill points. I hope that doesn't end up being a big concern for me.. ITC, in one of the (few good) changes they made towards the game, ruled that in KP missions un...

Re: EWO vs Necrons

Yes, it will trigger. I'd advise your brother to deploy farther than 12" - so your EWO won't work and he'll be able to shoot

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Your issue is that the Tau Sept will not only have buff(s) equal to or better than the other septs, but also gets all of the special characters, right? Frankly, that will probably be an issue. Mrines have been living with this since 5th codex. IT's a valid complaint, but it'll fall into deaf ears.....

Re: Drones, unit coherency and Tidewall

I guess it was overlooked, as they might have forgot that drones become another unit after deployment
DS8 turrets cannot be used from within a tidewall as well

Re: Feel No Pain like abilities "stack".

That 'any' word precludes stacking with itself. The same way the fireblade's rule would let it stack if it was 'within 6" of a cadre fireblade', the ethereal one would be equally phrased. This 'a' instead of 'any' was the reason people thought drone controller could stack. The FAQ changed that ...

Re: What's the best support systems for a stormsurge?

I don't know if the ruling can allow you to shoot at characters that Deep Strikes within 12" and ignore the "can't shoot if not the closest" because of the EWO wording or not? EWO triggers immediately after a unit is set up on the table. If your opponent deep strikes the character be...

Re: Making a Brigade

Yeah the buffs stack. Sniper Drones easily reach a +2 to-hit modifier. However the guns itself are lacking punch It's just a bunch of S5 AP0 D1 hits *yawn*. I wouldn't say 'easily' at all. You need to spend at least another 105p and 2 slots just go get them down to BS3+, and you need 5ML to get BS2+

Re: New 8th FAQ

even if being speed bumps aren't the main use for Pathfinders, they are highly adaptable and they can do it. I'd still use drones or kroot hounds instead, but I can see their use as that.

Outrider exists, after all :P

Re: Points will not be adjusted outside of Codex/Chapter Approved books

Space Wolves stuff had its points changed as well.

FB people aren't the game designers, so what they say might not be translated to the released material.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

noticed another thing on the new SM codex: if you put people from different <CHAPTER> or even without it in the same detachment of a unit with <CHAPTER>, the latter won't get any benefit of its own chapter tactics. Likewise, you can put Aun'Va and a Riptide of your own <SEPT> in the same detachment,...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Watching winter SEO's SM codex review, I've noticed some units have decreased in points (some more than 10). So, I'm hopeful we'll see serious point changes among our units with our codex!

I'm glad shield drones got fnp ... that said I wished it was a 4+ On another note someone brought a question that I'm a bit puzzled about. It's about EWO and drop pods. So here it goes: Do units that disembark from a drop pod that DS 13" away, get to still be targeted by those with EWO if they...
