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 ...

Re: Newbie Slapfight: My first 500 point battle

I'd suggest dropping all the PF drones you've got and create this list as a Farsight Enclaves CAD. You get more obsec units. The FSE CAD allows you to take crisis suits as troop choices. So 3 suits and a unit of FWs will give you 4 decent board control units with obsec. One of which is a 10 man FW u...

Re: 8th edition

Honestly Calmsword, getting me excited with comments like this: "More conversations indicate that there is going to be updates to codexes but rewrites will be on the way with a big push for the xenos factions after chaos is done (imperials have a few more as well) but that campaign books (which...
