Re: Pay for drones embarked?

Yeah you have to pay for everything unless the unit cost is listed as with wargear included like for drones.

Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

Yeah same but with less minimum amount of hits and less maximum damage due. Having 3 Flamer instead of 2+ATS is just more reliable and has a greater potential against MEQ units. Aren't 2 flamers+ats about the same vs MEQ as 3 flamers? Against MEQs, we're looking at 32 hits with no ATS or 21 hits wi...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Yes i know, that why i wrote re-written, i think that the volley fire ability should change and be more powerful. I don't see the slightest reason why it should have to be rewritten. It's already plenty powerful. Especially with Drones. Yes, that's another thing i don't like and hope will change wi...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

I think that the volley fire ability should be re-written so that it clearly states pistol 2 for pulse pistols, rapid fire 2 for pulse rifles, assault 3 for pulse carbines and while we are at that maybe include pulse blasters and kroot rifles in the ability. Why? It's clear what it does RAW. Your s...

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

Yes, Crisis Suits are indeed big enough to contain fire warriors as depicted in the fluff. ;) In the fluff? Yes. I suspect that GW would have loved to make the suits bigger in the first release... but did not do so out of financial reasons, habit or production limitations. The "Dreadnought&quo...

Re: What to do with a Pathfinder Team box?

My next project actually is a Pathfinder box. I will indeed be magnetising them for interchangability, and because I have 6 old metal Pathfinders, I'll be able to make: 2 units of 8(5 plastic and 3 metal), one with 5 Markers and 3 Ion, and one with 5 Markers and 3 Rails. The drones, I'll definitely...

Re: What to do with a Pathfinder Team box?

I'd say units of 5 if you don't plan to take some of the rifles for a MSU approach and units of ~7 if you take rifles so you still have some markerlights and ablative wounds left. However a unit of 5 with 3 of them having Ion Rifles wouldn't be a bad idea either since they're fairly cheap so losing ...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Don't argue too much with logic in the 40k universe. It never ends well. ^^ Yes T'au do care about their soldiers lifes but their fluff straight out says that using only Drones instead of actual Firewarrior goes against their doctrine. The Caste system is so designed that every T'au has a place in s...

Re: new person drone question

Ok so still fairly new to the hobby, 1, can drones leave units and wander off or join other units I.e. a grab inhibitor drone leaving pathfinders and joining strike team? 2. If I have 6 gun drones attached to a crisis team and the suits advance, do I roll a separate dice for the drones or do they a...

Re: What does RAW mean by "hull"?

I think it is perfectly reasonable for you to say that you do not believe that dozer blade should be part of the hull. The hull is a Rhino hull and the dozer blade looks like an add-on to me. The guidance in the rules is that the players should agree on what counts as the hull - this is one of thos...

Re: Spin the Bottle

Okay first things first....don't expect to have an answer to everything in such low point games. You can try to build an allrounder list but there will be situations where you simply can't do much about it. Imo in low point games it's better to build towards ones own strength instead of trying to b...

Re: Phe'nyx Task Force

Dayum that's a brutal looking suit! Love it! Now I want a Commander in XV88 option so we have an XV88 with WS3+ and more attacks and possibly two support system slots for a Shield Gen and ATS! :D
Great write up as well!

Re: Spin the Bottle

Good point, cheers. I’ve got a 6x4 table that splits in half so there will be 2games happening simultaneously on the 2 halves. I’ll post a short bat rep with the outcome :D 3x2 will be VERY small. Keep in mind your pathfinders will want to be at max range BUT if you have rail rifles, you may want t...

Re: Dark strider and breachers

It's okay. Not a winning combo and a bit expensive for what it does but not bad either. Definitely a nice thing to take in casual games.
If you take him you take him for the -1T not for the fighting retreat. Your Breacher aren't very likely to survive long enough anyway.
