Re: Painting gold

Yeah it definitely is. Don't forget the Reikland Fleshshade and maybe even a silver/metallic highlight to make it really pop. ;)

Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

I don't get this. How can you hit on 5+ in Overwatch? Because that's what the Counterfire Defense System says. It's not a modifier or anything, it simply overwrites how Overwatch works for the model equipped with CDS. Should be fairly obvious by just reading the Index entry for CDS. Even more confu...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Almost nothing is completely immune to moral in 8th. There are only really two ways to handle things: either make almost everything immune to it (like in 7th which was terrible) because every faction is written like they are the most fearless badasses of the universe unless you are an Imperial Guard...

Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

Nah. Not for the Markerlight at least. I'd much rather have the Fusion Blaster hit in Overwatch than getting a single Markerlight on the charging unit. ^^

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

It's even meh against GEQ. A Commander kills an average of ~1.1 Firewarrior/Skitarii Ranger/whatever with ATS and ~0.8 without. Yawn. Not worth building anything around. An additional weapon would do a LOT more. Same thing with Crisis Suits. A unit of 3 Crisis Suits would kill an average of ~1.04 Fi...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

Not always as the ATS makes you better at CC. I am finding being in CC very useful and go for ATS over more weapons. Barely. T'au are bad in CC whether they take ATS or not. Even a Commander is only okay-ish despite WS3+. Equipping T'au for CC is a waste of points and potential. The thing we can do...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

Even against 3+ armor ATS is usually not worth it compared to an additional weapon.

Re: Optimal drone squad size ?

I'd say 4-6 is the optimal size. Only exception would be a Crisis unit with more than 3 Crisis suits ... take all the Drones possible there. ^^

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

ATS is worth it as long as you cannot take an additional weapon. So, Ghostkeels, Riptides, SS, and the like. Suits you always want more weapon systems over ATS.

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

ATS is usually not worth it over an additional weapon unfortunately. I like to take it on Stealth Suits with Burst Cannons and on bigger suits with, multi-shot low AP weapons though but only because other support systems are rarely better. Also keep in mind that there are effects that ignore AP-1 on...

Re: 2500 pts double Y'vahra

CIB's are better because they are more flexible. Plasma rifles are okish for a very narrow group of targets whereas CIB is good over a much larger group. Good summary of the issue. The Plasma Rifle is a cheap and moderately-effective weapon, but the CIB offers more range, more shots, better strengt...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

4th. Bringing T5-7 with many wounds may be painful, as they can field S8 AP-4 D2+ in a very cost efficient manner on multiple platforms. Many armies do. Space Marines and CSM can spam Lascannons like no tomorrow as well. Luckily we have one of if not the best countermeasures against such weaponry w...

Re: Tips on painting Black Coldstar Commander

Eh I pretty much disagree with the point of your whole post, khayman.
However the fact that you can't shade black or highlight white properly is true.

Re: Shield Generators and Tanking wounds with a Crisis team

Well if that's the wording then RAI is clear but RAW you can actually do that I'd say. Needs an Errata to change 'damage' into 'wound' asap.

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

Yeah hitting on 3+ is good enough for 4 Fusion Blaster. However VT would be an option on other suits like HYMP Broadsides or CIB Crisis.
