Re: Strength from Death and You

I do keep track of the FAQs very well. Unfortunately, it doesn't say anything about shots. And while I'm happy to throw that out there as the basis of an argument it ultimately doesn't say shots so RAW it has nothing to do with my case. I know, it's bull how that doesn't apply but that's how the com...

Strength from Death and You

For those unaware, I am a competitive player. So I often find these fiddly little questions that actually have a large scale impact on the game. And here is one of them. Tau Riptide Unit 1: Vre'Khan Vre'Naga and Vre'Kais Ynnari Reborn Warhost A Jetbike Farseer Warlock Conclave 6 units of Windriders ...

Re: 8th edition

So for more AoS-y Rend to AP Translations, speculation abound, I doubt that -4 Saves is going to be possible outside confluences of special rules. Therefore, in my mind, the AP goes something like this AP-/6 = 0 AP5/4 =-1 AP3/2 =-2 AP1 =-3 This means that our plasma is actually a decent option again...

Re: Thunderstrike Theorycraft: ITC 1850pts lists

As a follow up to the first list, I've done major reworking on some of my old lists to accommodate the changing times. And while it has considerably less flak, it is a list designed against Gladius play which I'm all too familiar with. But it now has multiple answers to problems beyond just that. Th...

Re: Guilliman returns: Dealing with an Imperial Primarch

Messed up my wording there a bit. I meant to say that Jump and Jet Pack Infantry are "Infantry" and they are allowed to embark. It's just they usually have rules that make them less desirable in transports (Jet-Pack confers Very Bulky for example).

Re: Guilliman returns: Dealing with an Imperial Primarch

Ok so from a Competitive stand you should not spend the points on RG. He's a powerhouse in melee (sounds familiar Abaddon) but has very few options to get in close. No vehicles can transport him because Monstrous Creatures can't embark (that's only infantry and special exceptions). He can't join a u...

Thunderstrike Theorycraft: ITC 1850pts lists

It comes to mind that I've created a half dozen lists all under varying titles with more or less the same goals. Therefore, I feel it necessary to create a compendium of lists that I create under the Thunderstrike name. As such periodically, I will post new lists in an attempt to attain a high level...

Thunderstrike Tempest Contingent V2: ITC 1850pts List

To preface this I'll explain how this all came about. As a competitive player, I tend to play solely what is optimal in the sense that I can survive the entire game and keep up on Victory Points. Then I had my life changed. Someone made a comment about the Master of Ambush Warlord Trait and putting ...

Re: Farsight Enclave List idea

To begin, because you don't list any wargear they have I honestly don't know how to level comment nor critique. That aside running on just the units listed you should be alright. A minor technical error is that Stealth Suits (unless I'm mistaken) are Elites. If you want to run this CAD idea I sugges...

Re: Thunderstrike Tornado Contingent: ITC 1850pts List

We've already seen that list. It's called the Thunderstrike Meteor Platoon. We also got to see how the dawnblade simply can't stand up because of the required auxiliary. It simply makes it too expensive even when taxing in a small auxiliary. In addition Shadowsun can't be used in that Crisis Bomb wh...
