Re: Ynnari rules discussion

My concern, if I read this right, is that it may allow a unit to win combat, destroy the opposing unit, then immediately charge another unit. Please let me know if I am missing something in the way this rule works. Yup, thats right. The Soulburst rule shown on bols (and I'm going to assume that it'...

Re: [Article Submission]Detachments,Formations,Factions & Allies

I've updated the third and fourth posts with an additional formation and the official 40k Rules FAQ. Happy to give it some time for peer review otherwise, could an admin reflect these changes into the Academy Article here ? There was some discussion regarding how much to put into this article in thi...

Re: How to make troops more survivable

How are your troops getting wiped out? Shooting, close combat, bit of both? For shooting, cover saves are your friend and you can get them from sitting in terrain or from forcing your opponent to fire through other units.

Re: Community Comp Points

From what I know of it the Community Comp point system is mostly an Australian thing or at least grew out of the efforts of some Australian 40k players in an attempt to balance competition play with out having to nerf specific rules. It adds another dimension to list building for tournaments, and on...

Re: 1000 - Tau Empire Hunter Contingent

Having a 5 man breacher teams lurking around your gun line can go a long way to discouraging your apponent from trying to Outflank/deep strike/jet bike into the area, especially when your gun line includes a Cadre Fireblade and the breachers can use Feints and Ambushes to increase their high strengt...

Re: How to beat Carnifex and Deathleaper

Use your pathfinders to marker light up Deathleaper. You want at least two on him for ignores cover then get your Firewarriors to shoot him to bits. Their weapons will ignore his armor save and have a higher strength than his toughness. Equip your crisis suits with Plasma Rifles (or maybe Fusion) an...
