Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

If I'm reading it correctly though the ATS should also carry over to the assault phase giving much more flexibility to the unit. Yes it does. However we don't have any weapons for melee where it could apply. And no it does not apply to the default CCW since that one has AP-. You can't modify a &quo...

Re: Pathfinders, the unsung heroes.

I'm not sold on Pathfinder special weapons. I think the reason you bring Pathfinders is because they are 8 points for a 50% chance at a markerlight, going up to 75% with Kauyon active. Bringing special weapons feels like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole. Pathfinders are great for area den...

Re: An interesting application of Longstrike's hull shape and terrain.

...advanced rules that give infantry the cover bonus in woods, ruins and crater and non-infantry units the cover bonus when they are in/on woods or ruins AND 50% hidden by it. I've seen this mentioned in other places too, but I don't see where you are getting the need for non-infantry units to both...

Only really worth it against 2+ armor units and even then the difference is minimal.

Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

Mathhammer in the saves. You'll see the numbers Termies go to 0, Marines to about 1. Meanwhile the 20 other gaunts and boys rip the suits apart. Right? That is after saves, snce 31 hits is about 15 wounds VS T4 So 255pts was used to kill 65pts of marines? I don't think it is worth is. 17 gaunts is ...

Re: An interesting application of Longstrike's hull shape and terrain.

To be fair, it wasn't that much different in 7th either. Just more clunky.

Re: 8th Edition Battle Report: 24(24) PL Tau vs Iron Hands

That would work better, yes. But still only against opponents who struggle killing 2-4 Drones with shooting or the melee unit itself. :P Actually, in my example, it's the hulls of the Devilfish that block the charge, not the Drones! The Drones would be deployed in the rear, and only if necessary. O...

Re: Pulse Carbines almost useless

I don't expect Carbines to be ever worth taking over Rifles tbh. :D
I have Blaster if I want to be closer with my Infantry anyway. :P

Re: An interesting application of Longstrike's hull shape and terrain.

So i was thinking about how to help Longstrike survive, considering Armour facing isn't a thing anymore, and came up with the following model placement. http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o38/llchallis/Longstrike%20-%20terrain.jpg This is only possible because its an offset rear mounted gun (Years ...

Re: Pulse Carbines almost useless

Advance and shoot is mighty fine. But don't forget it'll be at BS5+. Considering how Markerlights work now I would use the advance and shoot of Carbines as a hail Mary and not as an actual tactic. And then I don't want to build my list with a unit who's purpose is to pull a rabbit out of the hat. I...
