Re: The run to 8th edition

I know it won't be the case. That's why I wrote "wouldn't have been surprised if Ethereal abilities..." and not "would be surprised if Ethereal abilities don't..." You know, I word things a specific way on purpose. That's how language works usually. ;) Yup, apologies, misunderst...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Mortal wounds is no new concept. It's just a fancy and practical new word for "no saves are allowed against those wounds". ;) Initially, I didn't really like bringing in mortal wounds to 40k. However, someone suggested that this might actually be a way to keep some really nasty units like...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Psychic lore for T'au could also mean we have no psykers. You can write a lore of how we have none :D I just saw another detail: Smite hits the nearest enemy and this reminds me of SW:A's target mechanics. I hope this is just an exception and everything else will be able to be aimed at a desired ta...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Mortal wounds is no new concept. It's just a fancy and practical new word for "no saves are allowed against those wounds". ;) Also I wouldn't have been surprised if Ethereal abilities would've been rolled into the psychic phase with some flavor text added that they aren't using the warp et...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Why are you guys assuming Pulse rifles will be AP0? Since they are described as miniature plasma weapons, seems reasonable that they could get -1. Same reason Bolter that are friggin mini rockets are AP0. For balance sake so basic infantry doesn't invalidate armor. Of course they could give us the ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Never really worked for me since my Firewarrior etc. usually got killed way faster than they could kill. Which will probably change in 8th. We'll have to see. Anyway I'd prefer not to have to munch through a 3+ (potentially 2+ in cover) army with nothing but S5 AP- weapons no matter how many shots I...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I don't know about that, I would say our shooting will stay te same, maybe even a bit better. Of course it will hugely depend on the final stats, but we didn't have much AP anyway, so if tre stats would remain the same, the FW will be exactly the same and missile pods will even get better I would t...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Obviously. :roll:
But as said, shooting is way less devastating in 8th and shooting is all we have after all.

Re: The run to 8th edition

I don't see a problem with us keeping Supporting Fire. Shooting is way less devastating in 8th considering a Lascannon has only AP-3 and cover adds to the save.

Re: The run to 8th edition

It's more than just Hit and Run too, it's a purely voluntary disengage. Tarpits are a thing of the past, and an officially dead tactic. I am already rolling dozens of strategies to use with this, both as Tau, AM, and Nids. Gotta be careful not to give the other player too much advantage on the char...
