Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

What dose the community think about markerlights getting the sniper special rule (i.e. being able to target characters) and adding a sniper special rule to the ML table? maybe with 5+ MLs in addition to the +1 BS. I like this, it would make sense that snipers would benefit from this. But be utter b...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

1. Give a 1CP stratagem to ignore penalties to shooting with Pathfinder teams near a Recon Drone. Would be nice. Also probably have a Signature System that negates or reduces penalties to BS in a 6" radius around the Commander. Hmm maybe it would make more sense for the marksman. Flufwise I me...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

On that note, I wish the could shoot with the Recon Drones Burst Cannon when it's embarked. It would give the Devilfish 12 BS4+ S5 cover ignoring shots which would be pretty sweet for a transport vehicle. Wouldn't the gun be inside the model then? I honestly disagree with GW deeming positive to-hit...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I'd switch 3 and 4 on the table (and re-word 5 to BS+1 since the benefits are additionally and with 5 hits you'd get BS +3 this way :D ). Well I get your 3 and 4 switcheroo, but I think GW will deem that too powerfull - at least the BS increase is what ML used to be hated for, so I don't think they...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Here is my ideas. 1. Let the Sky Ray be a Seeker( 2 ) / Destroyer( 6 ) missile platform with a heavy 2 ML. 2. Be able add more types of drones to the sponsors of the vehicles. ( I like the idea of modular and flexible drone use. ) Like a Piranha that normally goes close or behind enemy lines, could ...

Re: Longstrike + Crisis Bodyguards + shield drones/tactical drones

Hmm I like the Idea, it will give LS 9 more wounds .. but even if you just put a SG on each bodyguard .. I mean you can almost get an QFC for those points. Maybe if you put flames on them in a Spearhead D. .. with drones .. then they serve as an assault deterrent and area denial ..

Re: The run to 8th edition

With the new fall back rule, does it make sense to have lets say 6 strike teams in line, with shield drones ( to suck up hits) & Fireblade + Etherial (to give boosts) in between? Then maybe a Longstrike HH formation Or riptides to handle armour And with sunsharks for Inf. ? sssss sssss dd F E d...

Forgeworld have also updated their list so that the XV8-x suit appear under HQ - as they should :)
