Re: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

Pessimism seems to be growing in the gaming(video and table) communities worldwide. That, and the T'au are in a tough spot atm, so some people are finding it hard to have a positive outlook on them.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

Fluff-wise, they can be either. Rules-wise, they're Shas'O because it would be pointless having Shas'el with the same or lower stats(like during 4th and 5th eds).

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

Something like this would make the Fusion Commander still a viable option when you can only take three Fusion Blasters by making the Fusion Blasters all more effective, but would limit such a build to one-per-army. Alternatively, if Commanders are meant to be buffing/supporting units, this largely ...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

I personally think that part of the reason that we still have 'power' armies is because we're not limited to taking 1 HQ and 2 troop to get any other good units. Now we can just take elites with HQs, or heavy supports, or even a detachment full of HQs. This leads to crazy things like Commander spam ...

Gave suggestions to GW re. T'au

Hey crew, I just posted some things that have been on my mind for a while to the Warhammer 40,000 Facebook page for them to hopefully forward to the writing team. These suggestions are all my own and are not influenced, and whether you agree with them or not, they've been given. Hey guys, I want to ...

Re: Battles of the A'kish Vior'la Cadre

Necrons were the opponent last night, and they were an interesting development..... My friend and neighbour(who is an absolute new person and isn't very good at learning things, since he wastes so much time playing online video games and not working on his models nor reading his rules) and I had a g...

Re: 2000pt Eldar Allies

I've been toying around with the idea of collecting another army to help bolater my T'au, since without Commander spam we're at a large disadvantage. I considered Space Marines because I love Devastators and I'd love to do up some regular Space Marines with Grey Knight heads, but I couldn't put toge...

Re: 2000pt Amended list

I'm ready to be disapppinted. I chose Multi-trackers because most of the available wargear was less appealing or too expensive at that point. I love Railsides. I love the idea of firing a miniscule projectile at light speed and punching through tanks and sucking their crew out the other side as a re...

Re: Competitive Tau

Ghostkeels have almost twice as many wounds as Commanders, one more Toughness, and 4" movement. And as for the Stealth Drones, they're really only there to protect the Ghostkeel. If your enemy wants to waste rounds of shooting on the Drones, then they're doing half of their job. For the some 1...

Re: What we can learn from the new Chaos Codex

Whatever method Games Workshop uses to define points costs I really wish GW WOULD use a method of formula to decide the points costs of everything, IE with the Guardsman/Fire Warrior statline being the starting point, and increasing or decreasing points costs on a per-stat/wargear/rule/perk basis. ...

Re: Zoanthropes...

I faced off against Typhus of the Death Guard recently, and we played an "open play card" battle(not sure what you call it exactly). The twist we drew was the ability to regenerate D3 wounds to one single model per turn. Typhus, with his 2+ armour save or 4(?)+ invulnerable save, followed ...

An updated image of all three Missilesides.

However, as I'm rather fussy about incomplete projects, these boxes are staying sealed until my Fire Warriors are finished :)
