Re: The run to 8th edition

LOL some of you people are insatiable. Wanting new Tau models in the same year the entire game system is getting updated. While clearly other armies are in a more dire position for some attention (Nids/Orks as other have mentioned, I'm personally hoping Nids first :P). Shame on you greedy players. H...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Sounds like a handful of D20 may even be a useful option for wound tracking, assuming you run more of the larger suits in general.

Re: Darkstrider question

That sounds accurate. It can be useful, but doesn't always work. An enemy DS unit can just land beside the squad a couple of inches away and you can always just roll a 1 when they charge the following turn. It's a nice bonus but more often than not the unit tracking you down will catch up if they ne...

Re: First Fight: 500pts Vs Necrons

The Mark'O is a good option, but one of a few directions you can take & perhaps a bit expensive for games below 1000 pts (w/o giving the Comm some weapons and target lock, using as a shooting platform alonside a ML soyrce). You can also, take the Drone Net VX1 formation which would bring you to ...

Re: First Fight: 500pts Vs Necrons

Missile suits were together since you can only have 6 troops in a CAD. You can pair the CIB suits or Plasma suits instead if you like. You can also drop one of the non-TL weapons on w/e suits you decide on pairing and add in Target Lock if you really want the paired suits to shoot at different targe...

Re: First Fight: 500pts Vs Necrons

I would change the structure of your list a bit. These changes give you the following advantages. You have more separate troop units with a FSE CAD, that all have obsec. The FW unit is larger at 10 men + turret. Thus you have more protection around the Ethereal, who gives up a VP if he dies. Drop a ...

Re: Tips for a starter cadre?

Yeah I wouldn't do an entire formation of ML drones. Do 2/2 Gun/ML. If this is the only formation brought and the other is a standard CAD, that isn't too bad IMO. Just the most efficient way to bring ML and some more useful gun drones. Not really game breaking/OP stuff.

Re: Tips for a starter cadre?

I went through the same Coldstar let down. This unit seemed great to me initially and I was excited about the mobility. I should also note my other army is Nids and I'm used to a Flyrant. Perhaps a little limited in customization, but what ever, that didn't bother me. Then someone pointed out the T4...

Re: Newbie Slapfight: My first 500 point battle

That sucks to hear. Too bad the neck beard was strong in that one. He didn't know better and I would honestly just avoid playing him again. He just wanted to play his 2000pt army with the new characters & didn't care how your experience went. Definitely take those other people up on their offer ...
