Re: What different tactics do you employ against different armies in 8th Edition?

Stuff I've encountered up to yesterday: Space Wolves: destroy their transports asap so their stuff inside will have to walk towards your lines. Some Breachers will help here against their melee force Astra Militarum: have EWO and/or bubble-wrap your lines so Tempestus won't arrive near your juicy th...

Black Templar lets you reroll failed charge rolls.


IF is quite good! 4th ML result for free. The building part one is meh

BL is nice too

Re: Pathfinders: Ion Rifles or Rail Rifles (or none)

I'd rather use Rail Rifles on TX-42 piranhas

Ion Rifles can be interesting, but Commander CIB already does their job

It's quite the possibility!

Ultras got Fly-lite, RG got Stealth Suit treatment. One solution in mind...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

We may be getting off trail. The saviour protocols I am looking at just say 'T'au Empire Infantry or Battlesuit' Which kroot and vespid have both: T'au Empire, and Infantry as keywords. So drones protocols work for both of them, and says nothing about 'Sept' By the Greater Good, you're right! Ok, n...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

Ye, but not helping tau from other septs is kinda stretching it... Sure there could be some chip with unique encryption for each sept, but why make it this way? Are the septs rly that detached from each other they wouldn't sacrifice drones to help each other? For 2 reasons (none based on fluff): - ...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

... There will be plenty of relics and stratagems etc. as well which one can only use if your whole army shares that specific Sept keyword. ... Maybe, but kroot and vespid don't have any septs... It would be kinda weird if taking kroot would prevent you from taking such stratagems or relics... I al...

Re: Power to Points conversion for new FW updates

Remoras are a good example of this. One costs 3 PL, but in points its almost 80. It should be closer to 60 (which is more or less its base price without the guns)

Re: Forgeworld FAQ is up

It's good to be proven wrong on this matter: Kroot stuff will get rules in the future. I hope they get good and balanced rules. Mostly pleased with Tau changes. Some stuff remain, though: - Y'vhara Nova'ing 1 or 2 weapons - High-intensity markerlight is hot garbage - R'varna costing 1 PL less than a...
