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.

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

I will say that at least the example shows the full math and process used. Even if the example is re-roll 1s only it does show the full process. Yeah it does take some getting used to but I find anything that limits mass re-roll armies to be a good thing. They are way too accurate. Mostly looking at...

Show me where they commented on it? And just to clarify we're not talking about "re-roll of 1s" or similar rules but about "re-roll failed rolls". https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/07/23/updated-faqs-and-boots-on-the-groundgw-homepage-post-2/ Designers commentary on the f...

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

Panzer they have commented and they say it is fully intentional. Really though I actually quite like it as it's the only counter to full re-roll armies right now. I've fought Guilliman and various chapter masters too often not to appreciate the effects of debuffs. The way negative to hit modifiers w...

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

So they definitely got it wrong with the various buffs. Also what was the troop unit that grabbed the objective? Were they Ultramarines or Dark Angels? If they were ultramarines and the LR was dark angels then they couldn't have gotten into it. Now as for the prize it is from the open war cards so t...

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

Yeah all re-roll abilities do not force you to do so. This makes it a moot point for positive modifiers but for negative it can be a sore subject.
Guilliman players with big units of plasma marines really hate how the rule works then.

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

So do we actually have tactics for fighting DG? On one side we have someone who just shot them off the board in seconds and on the other we have the theory at least that they are actually very resilient to shooting. Having watched a few bat reps with them in it now I would lean towards the latter. I...

I would think about how your units work mostly. Tell her what you think needs to die and who she has that can do it.

Re: Matchup against Aeldari

Well making sure there is enough line of sight blocking terrain may be a good thing to look into. Long range shooting out of bikes or wave serpents should do fine against Tau. Some wraithguard hidden and waiting for closer range suits should work well too. Trying to form a gun line to fight you is p...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Does he run Typhus and a psyker to buff the zombies to t5? Does he run multiple 20 man squads of them? Does he use the stratagem to make the plague marines immune to shooting for a turn? Did he use any stratagems? What does he equip the plague marines with? They can have plasma guns, plague launcher...

Dealing with Deathguard

So has anyone played against this chaos army yet? They seem very resilient to shooting and their stratagems and psychic powers seem to screw with our shooting. Having to fire everything at t5 zombies with a -1 to hit while marines advance behind them seems tough. Also that Mortarion looks like he ta...

Re: Counter Crisis Vs. Magnus The Red

So long as you are playing matched play that is.

Oh also the 1k sons ability that buffs their saves buffs their invuln save too. So firing plasma at them can be difficult what with a 4++.

Heck now their sorcerers can make that a 3++ re-roll ones.
