Re: Master of War - Kauyon or Mon'tka - Once per game. Period?

It's once per battle, not once per Commander. However Shadowsun and Farsight allow you to declare either Kauyon or Mont'ka an additional time each battle.

Re: Wound allocation, HRR bonus Mortal Wound

Sequencing on the margin of page 178 in the rulebook: if two or more rules are to be resolved at the same time, then the player whose turn it is chooses the order.

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

Das'Kyman is correct -- the general rules prevent you from moving the Y'vahra after deploying it at the start of the movement phase. Good catch.

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

It has some significant limitations though. The max move is 18" now, down from 24". The flamer range got nerfed to 8",it was torrent 6", which could reach up to 14" before. This makes it much less likely to be within flamer range. If you use the escape ability, it's guarant...

Re: Bork'an 4th Escort Cadre [WIP Log]

That Stormsurge is wicked -- I love how it's reminiscent of a scaled-up Riptide. Same with the similarity of your Ghostkeel conversion and the XV25 stealth battlesuits.

Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

To clarify, I was responding to Glarblar's suggestion that units of 2 or fewer drones should be untargetable. If your opponent can target the drones, then they can deny you optimal wound soaking -- that balances Saviour Protocols. If they could not, then Saviour Protocols would be too strong.

Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

I think when I start playing I'm going to propose a tuoe to my opponent that seems to not be addressed in error: If a DRONES unit is numbered less than 3, and can activate SAVIOUR PROTOCOLS, the unit cannot be targeted as a part of the opponents shooting. That's not OP is it? Units of 2 drones can ...

Re: Going First in 8th

You can use a transport to combine drops. For example, a unit or two of infantry and a character can be deployed together in a devilfish for one drop. Rules for the Orca will be coming out soon, so that's another option if you've got the model for it.

Re: Markerlight Discussion

The problem with going for a large number of markerlights is that there aren't many sources which will land at least 5 hits reliably. For example, 10 pathfinders will average 5 ML hits, but they only land at least 5 hits 62% of the time. Often they'll land more than 5 hits but the extra hits are wa...
