Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

2d6 damage wouldn't be the solution though. Just having a single shot is the problem. It was the problem in 7th and is the problem now.

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

It would help to close the gap to space marine tanks but of course wouldn't be enough to close the gap to the other tanks that can double tap now.

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

Flamer XV8 are definitely viable. Just a bit tricky to use (nothing impossible though). They aren't weapons for Commander though. You'd be wasting their BS2+.

Also congrats to your first game! Sounded like fun despite the Commander&Gun Drone cheese from your partner. :D

Re: Updates to Astra Militarum

Yeah but that costs CP which they then can't use for something else. They could also use their cheap psyker to try and make one of those immune to morale once a turn which would cost another HQ slot though and would require to pass the psychic test and not getting denied. Overall it got nerfed but i...

Re: Battalion 750pts

I don't know if i'm missing something, but here i see a total of 1290 points. 10 fire warriors are worth 80, not 16. Same for pathfinders. Heh, you're right. Didn't even look at the points since I just assume people to use Battlescribe. :D @Ar'Che'R Your Firewarrior and Pathfinder alone would alrea...

War of Secrets

Soooo there's a new book coming featuring T'au. Mainly Dark Angels but they are going up against T'au so it's still relevant I guess. Now to the bad news. It's written by Phil Kelly...again! :dead: https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/10/18/new-covers-revealed/ https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com...

Re: Battalion 750pts

Gun Drones and Commander Usual Gun Drones, not Marker Drones? And what upgrades do you use for Commander? Yeah usual Gun Drones. They are more durable, have more utility and provide more damage output than Fire Warrior and cost the same. Commander are variable. Quad Fusion Blaster is the most favor...

Re: Battalion 750pts

Sorry I don't really play such low point games, however what's effective doesn't change when you play lower point games really. Gun Drones and Commander will still be the best thing to bring for us.

*Hammerhead

And uhm sure, if you want to play non-mechanized Infantry list with some tank support it's okay. Definitely not the strongest list but should do okay in casual games.

Re: Start Collecting box and 4th ed. conversion advice

The Crisis models look differently but are basically the same. The one with more armor plates is supposed to represent the Iridium armor one but that doesn't make any sense since the fluff tells us the Iridium suit isn't any bulkier than the regular Crisis due using a special alloy instead of thicke...

Re: Updates to Astra Militarum

The headline item is going to be that the Commissar no longer works as before - the effect is now to inflict one casualty in order to enable a re-roll. For Conscripts in particular this is a game-changer. Yeah but then again there's a Warlord trait that lets a Commissar, if the re-roll failed as we...

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

There's also no rule that says you can't take your oppents models and place them somewhete else. Things don't have to be forbidden in the rules. You can't do anything that isn't allowed. And putting units who don't have such a special rule (or a mission/stratagem/warlord trait/ etc. that specificall...

Because you can't just hold things back in reserve in 8th anymore. Only units that have the rule to do so (Manta Strike for example).

By the way, where's this March rumor coming from? Some source he doesn't want to name. Aka not credible at all. ^^ Huh. I could have sworn a few other users mentioned it. Whatever.

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

I don't mind the open cockpit. I just don't like that they had to show us there are two pilots on a regular console controlling such a huge walker. Then again it doesn't have the battlesuit keyword so I guess it's that way for a reason. That being said, I would close the cockpit as well. My main con...

Mmh...well we've come a long way and me not seeing the hobby through nostalgia glasses I'm glad many things changed. However I do miss Warhammer Fantasy 7e and my Tomb Kings quite a bit. :P Honestly, yeah, I love where 40k is at but I can't make up my mind about fantasy. I'd been working on a Fanta...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Ugh, I'd feel wrong putting carbines on my FW models, though. Don't worry, no one's saying to do that! Unless they buff Pulse Carbines and nerf Gun Drones, the Fire Warrior weapon of choice will be the Pulse Rifle. By the way, where's this March rumor coming from?
