Re: Early warning override use against Reserve models.

As evidence that character targeting rules are still in effect when using EWO the Custodes just got a FAQ and their version of EWO still follows normal character targeting restrictions.

Re: Loss to Blood Angels - 1250 points

It is not illegal. His captain had a relic for the no overwatch and a warlord trait for the extra damage.
In fact if he had spent some command points he could have made the captain even tougher with extra attacks and a feel no pain style save.

Re: About last night's game (Custodes vs 1k sons)

Lots of screening is the only answer I can think of. Really it became essential pretty quickly in 8th edition. Also he may not even need a daemon detachment to deepstrike himself. 1k sons have a deepstrike stratagem all their own. Edit 1/22 As of today Daemon army stratagems cannot be used on models...

Re: About last night's game (Custodes vs 1k sons)

Well a bit confused by the list posted here. So this is how things went down. 1k sons do have access to warptime... Reports actually indicate that 1k sons invuln saves got better rather than worse. Their terminators were reported to have a 4++ base. They did lose the re-roll saves of one aura but i...

Re: About last night's game (Custodes vs 1k sons)

Well a bit confused by the list posted here. So this is how things went down. 1k sons do have access to warptime and all of dark hereticus plus their new spell lore which even contains a -1 to hit them spell. They have a deepstrike stratagem like daemons, even have a mid game deep strike relic like ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

They hate xenos armies so much that they released incredible new T'au kits, crazy new Eldar subfaction characters, and an entire new gimmick army based on an old concept that was a real gamble on its success just out of spite. Not even counting the re-editing of old Eldar characters to go with the ...

What if he pops the +1 invuln save stratagem and tanks your counter attack?
Feel lioke spread out long ranged firepower is the way to go but don't know where to get it from.

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

It's almost a guarantee that jsj will make a return in the codex as at least a stratagem. Just have to be patient.

Re: Fighting chaos

Need at least 2 layers of chaff if fighting khorne. 5cp buys them a deepstrike and a second pile in and attack, just like berzerkers. Against a Primarch interceptor might not be enough but it could really help against the troop blobs. They tend to only be t3 with a 5++. Granted I'm more scared of th...

Fighting chaos

Was wondering how many people play against chaos here?
With the new daemon codex coming out turn one charges by 30 man blood daemons or even primarchs is an unavoidable part of the game.
Do we just have to take interceptor now on everything?

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

Is he not using screen units to protect from deepstrikers and even stealth suits? Every guard player I know uses tons of screening units. Also a few use bullgryn units to act as counter melee. Getting the charge on a tank or two could be a short term victory if a squad of bullgryn can charge in with...

Re: New tyranids smite spam

So I've been wondering you say he had single zoanthropes a lot but do you mean Nuerothropes?
Those would be HQ characters. Did he actually leave them as the closest models so much that you could try to shoot them all game?

Re: Why are the Tau hated?

Well some of it is also the fluff. Tau are probably the most divergent race in the fluff and their anime influences rub some people the wrong way. They are also the new kids on the block both in fluff and on the tabletop.(ad mech at least had some representation before tau though not a whole army) I...

Re: Updates to Astra Militarum

Though guard players are acting like their entire book has been gutted from the sounds of it.
Just waiting for all the codexs to come out to see how the balance for this edition comes out.
Had heard Tau in March, but flimsy source.

Re: how do you beat this with tau

Will mention that the changling imposes a -1 to hit penalty when targeting Tzeentch daemons within 9" of it I believe. Drones won't do so well against that.

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

So to summarize this topic. We all agree that mechanically the rule works and there really isn't a debate that re-rolls come first then modifiers are applied. There is currently no issue with positive modifiers and re-rolls because no re-roll rules forces you to use it so that is a complete non-issu...

Re: 3000pts - Tau & Chaos vs Ultramarines & Dark Angels

Make sure to remember the order of re-rolls and modifiers for your next game with that ghostkeels. It's usually something Guilliman players hate.
