Re: Command Points: How do I use them???

In tournament games (commander spam) i find i always have cp left (6-7cp total) as we don't really benefit from the combat one or auto pass morale. With minimum drone squads, msu style of play and how quick games can end this edition from alpha strikes. I usually use the re-rolls on wounding/damage ...

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

ATS is a fantastic support slot, combined with 3 cibs on commanders in competitive play or even to take full effect on a Stormsurge with all its weapons, masses of str 5 shots with -1 can really put the hurt on MEQ. Even on commanders they are ok in combat when 3-4 of them heroic intervene into a sq...

Re: 2.1k Competitive Flyers, Seekers, and Commanders

The flyer rule for no units on the field only applys from turn 2 onwards, so you can still manta strike turn 1 even with your single commander destroyed.

Re: 2000pts - Competitive

Tanks could be an option but with longstrike + 3 hammerheads it would around 800pts plus i don't have the models, hoping the codex drops a lot of our units points cost or gives us good stratagems. I may give missiles a try, but going to try this list first. I only have 1 piranha at the moment, and n...

Re: 2000pts - Competitive

My only markerlight source is the drone squads which will probably get shot off the board turn 1, mixing them with gun drones with the deepstriking squads guaranteeds i can get the reroll 1s for the alpha strike. Missile commander i also think it poor, lacking the str and ap of the cib commanders. I...

Re: 2000pts - Tournament List -

Results are in, i made a few tweaks with the dc on a commander and added marker drones to the deepstrike units. Overall i came 4th, losing to guard conscript spam, blocked his entire deployment up and i couldnt get near him. Happy with the list, some pointers - Stormsurge isnt great, i had to take h...

Re: 2000pts - Tournament List -

All missions are maelstrom from the rulebook. Combining the drone squads i have moral problems and i need the ground drops to get within the 50% deepstrike rules. Also having the small squads makes my opponents fire power wasted. If i combine the squads il lose a cp and get down to 10 drops (a lot o...

Re: 2000pts Tournament List

Thats a good idea with the VT on a big group, whats it like trying to position them? Im guessing 6 suits + drones may be difficult. Reduces the drops for first turn also but a bit weaker against morale. Going to try this out! Thanks for all the comments, the list does look solid and like said for no...

Re: 2000pts Tournament List

Yeah i get what you mean, the drones do die fast and il change it over once i have the weapons. The yvarah has been amazing in testing, auto hitting flyers, deleting squads a turn, even the ion gun puts wounds down on vehicles. It does become a fire magnet but with los blocking terrain its easy enou...

Re: 2000pts Tournament List

Thank you, played a few games so far and have been successful. The DC is on the shasvre so i know what model its on in the squad as i don't have 16 ion blasters due to commander sprue. It only really affects mind war/equivalent leadership stuff as they arnt affected by morale anyways. Suppose the ex...

Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you don't like

A few things i like/dislike on from playtesting/in general, mostly dislike though Like: The fly special rule most of our units get Infantry been a viable choice Drones protecting our big stuff Markerlights been universal Dislike: Poor markerlight table where option 2-4 are mostly useless, 2 can only...
