Re: Vehicle movement

Only if it's in forests or ruins. There is no general 50% obscured = covered rule anymore. Oh wow. We played totally wrong. There is no normal cover anymore :/ I don't like it. Well there is...kinda...it works differently than in 7th and I don't really like it either. Checkout page 181 (the one abo...

You definitely have to be careful with something like that. Most will damage the plastic.

Re: Let's talk about the Sun Shark

I suggest bringing it on the board at an angle you can adjust and hit another on round 2. If you are stuck in a position you can't bomb anything, just fly off the board and come in next turn in a better position rather than try to salvage your poor position and get a markerlight and a few missiles ...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

The Changeling causes all Tzeentch Daemon units less than 9in away to force you to subtract 1 from your to-hit rolls. And bird perverts get +1 to their invulnerable saves on top of that just for being themselves. It was rough. Yikes. Yeah, Tau (also Imperial Guard) really suffer when confronted wit...

Old Warhammer fantasy worked like that depending on the unit type (swarms, regular sized, big and huge models).

Re: Vehicle movement

One more question. What about the guns on vehicles? Last week I played a battle in which the nose of the Hammerhead saw enemy troops, while the Rail Gun didn't. We agreed that I can't shoot. Is it right? It can shoot. Any unit can shoot with any weapon as long as you can draw line of sight from the...

Re: New 8th FAQ

As with everything, you have to put up enough pressure so the opponent has to divide his shooting between all your threats.

Re: Tidewall Drone Port from left over parts.

But why would anybody have spare wings from a Piranha kit unless he butchered it for a different conversion project already? I mean, it kinda needs it's wings for itself. :D

You are mixing 7th and 8th rules here. Actually everythign you wrote is 7th edition. Please read the 8th edition rules before commenting on a thread. There is no such thing as Flyer coming in on the board anymore and also no such thing as leaving the boeard and coming back next turn. You deploy the...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

how do we deal mortal wounds/get around Invulnerable saves and Disgusting Resiliency? The only way is to avoid using powerful guns (really points-inefficient to shoot a Fusion Blaster at 4++/5+++) on Invulnerable Saves / Disgusting Resiliency, and instead just shower them in S5 firepower. Fire Warr...

Re: Let's talk about the Sun Shark

I'm objective games it's ok, but they're are better options for infantry clearing out there for the same price tag imo. They can't really do much in terms of completing objectives, with the acception of nuking smaller HQs. The rule says ANY unit it passes over, so you can totally bomb a captain to ...

Re: Help a fellow player decide!

Actually I'm the only one who is talking about Bio-Ethanol and everyone else on the internet is talking about simple green. And the reason why I don't is because every product similar to simple green I've tried falls short to using simple bio-ethanol so I'll keep suggesting bio-ethanol until I find ...

Re: Let's talk about the Sun Shark

There's absolutely a point to overcharging though! You get D3 (statistically 2) shots at 30" rather than 15", and while the Drones are attached to the Sunshark they cannot be destroyed due to overheating, as the Flyer itself would lose the wound rather than the drones. Given that an overc...

Re: Why 8th Gun Drons as OPAF

That....is hardly news. People realised that from day one of the Index leaks and kept saying that all over the forum. :D Also "Twin WeaponX Assault2" already means the shots got doubled. You don't double it again in your head, you just take the numbers you read from the weapons profile. Th...

Re: Line of Sight: Base or Model?

Your local shop owner is the prime example why those guys are NO reference when it's about rules questions. Always trust your own judgement of the rules as written or how the majority of player does it, not how some random local shop owner thinks it has to be done.

Re: Fate of Konor Week 1 - 1500 pts

If I manage to get a game in I'd go with the Start Collecting theme. So a force of 3 Crisis, an Ethereal and 10 Firewarrior and like 8 or 10 Drones (don't remember how many exactly are in the box). For the Crisis I'd probably go with Flamer, for the Drones with Gun Drones or Shield Drones for the Cr...

Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

There is a good dual fusion gun from Paulson Games/Red Dog Minis that looks way better than the original kit. (Even the PG single fusion looks better) I have a few at home. Kromlech heat guns can pass as cool looking fusion as well, but I don't think there is a dual version. Let's face it...all of ...
