Re: Sniper Drones - Amusingly Misleading Description

I think giving the sniper drones a special rail rifle that can target characters would fix all of their problems. You wouldn't necessarily need to make a special rail rifle and instead give them a special rule to do it, but the weapon seems to be the trend of how they have done it with every race. I...

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

I'd say it's clearly a "no" after FAQ rewording which says something like "... if an enemy attack successfully wounds", the wound on bodyguards is technically caused by your own ability, not by enemy attack. Also I'm 90% sure this isn't intended. But sure, you could say it's a c...

Re: Combined arms FoF

Seems like an interesting tactic for sure. Paired with a XV109 Y'varha it could be a strong aggressive force and still come in under a 1000 points. :biggrin: :fear:

Re: Y'Vahra Nova Reactor

It could charge the turn it came in from using it's escape thrust, but it is done in the charge phase, not the movement. It coming in at the end of the movement phase does not prevent it from charging.

Re: Question regarding wounding

So even though the wounds may be allocated to a model that is not in range or in line of sight, if you take the models that are in range and line of sight out first, the other shots you hit and wounded with don't matter?

Question regarding wounding

My gaming group recently added two new members to our group and during his first battle here an argument of how wounding came up. A unit with multiple weapons was firing at one of his units. Weapons A shot and dealt wounds. He removed the models that were in range of Weapon B making it in able to fi...

Re: In need of help. I can't seem to get past 3rd turn.

Fortunately due to some errors, we have decided to start the escalation league over and I am allowed to re-write my list. As such I am taking the following: Outrider Detachment HQ- Commander w/ 4 fusion blasters and 2 gun drones. 176 points. Fast Attack- Pathfinder Team: Shas'ui w/ ion rifle and pul...

Re: In need of help. I can't seem to get past 3rd turn.

This is why you all are the best! I'm not sure if I can change my list right now due to it being locked into the escalation league. My next game is against Tryanids, so I'm feeling slightly more optimistic about that. Either way, I believe I understand where I went wrong and how I can change my lis...

In need of help. I can't seem to get past 3rd turn.

Hi orbital! 8th edition has shaken things up quite a bit and I still don't fully grasp how our army plays. To be honest I'm not sure I understand the basics anymore. My roommate and I have been playing recently, and out of 3 games I have lost all three. The first game I know I didn't take a good lis...

I personally use coconut oil. It takes longer to for it to dry than other options so it gives you a better working time.

Re: Hail Blueberry Spacepope! Long may he reign peaceful and flavorful.

Welcome to the Orbital Ka'buki! I like what you've done with your models. The poses on the crisis suits are dynamic and I like the glow effect, particularly in the riptide. My only advice to you is, if you decide to paint them a different color strip the paint off of them by soaking them in concentr...

Re: (Opinion) The Stormsurge Mini

Many of us here agree with you on the design flaws of the Stormsurge and some have even made 3d models to correct the issues, such as adding a closed canopy and arms. While that is still just a bandage for a poor design in the first place. :fear: If you are interested where those 3d models are I can...

Re: Giving FNP to gunrigs

Although, in the case of the using marker lights it is not the gun rig that is using them, the model firing the weapon is. The gun right cannot fire itself.

I don't know where I stand on the feel no pain argument, but I am interested to see where everyone ends up on this topic. Good luck. :D
