Re: 2500 Points [Battalion + Supreme Command] Ya'ven Sept Cadre

Good changes (and by the way I LOVE your background) but here are a few more: Move the shield drones from the cadre fireblade or from the ethereal to the pathfinders with the pulse accelerator drone (otherwise the single drone will easily be picked off). Also add a grav-inhibitor drone, and the last...

Re: Revisiting the Droneport

I don't have rulebook with me, but isn't VT just negating the -1 hit penalty fly keyword gives? also yeah, VT against fly heavy armies is nice thing, but rather situational Fly and -1 to hit are too different things. The FLY keyword appears on all sorts of stuff like our battlesuits, devilfishes, a...

Re: The Millennia Mirrors (Competitive 1.5k)

If you know you're facing only tanks, this looks like a very strong list. I'd swap out the gun drones for shield drones though.

Re: Fighting Blood Angels: Need Nelp with Tactics

If you're going ahead with the game (is that a big if?) 1: Like other people have suggested, make sure you have someone neutral on hand (or preferably biased towards you) to check points and solve disputes (of which there will probably be quite a few) 2: If he turns up with anything but a completely...

Re: 2000 pt Semi Competitive League

Drop a cadre fireblade (seriously, 2 for 20 fire warriors is too much), and in exchange add another units of pathfinders.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

For example, Strike teams should not have access to Guardian Drones and Breacher teams should not have access to DS8 Turrets. I can look at how both of those models work and see that they just do not fit with those teams both in fluff and table top application. I would also change it so that Guardi...

Alternatively you could just write quote="Watcher on the wall" in the first tag to give it a headline.

Re: 3000 pts of Cheese vs Chaos

Given your number of HQs, splitting up your fire warrior squads into units of 5 instead of 10 will net you 3 more Command points.
Or, given you have 3 elite choices, just make a vanguard detachment for +1CP

Re: 1800 Point Tournament List: Synergy Heavy

These rules don't favor tanks, but they do favor anything big and stompy. Vehicles like Dreadnoughts and Wraithlords, and any big Tyranid monsters, are going to do very well in tight spaces. Very true, I had forgotten about those! Breachers sound interesting in this game, but remember that weapon r...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

Just to comment as well, I wouldn't back splitting weapon costs. 1. Elegance: leaving aside how the maths work out, to me it feels far simpler, more instinctive and a 'nicer' solution to not have to change the cost of a weapon depending on who is using it. 2. There is a problem with commanders being...

Re: 1800 Point Tournament List: Synergy Heavy

Especially with the 2x movement special rule, I think Breachers could be a very promising alternative to standard fire warriors - does the 2x movement also mean that the advance roll's effect is doubled? Also, the rules don't really seem to favour tanks. While I also like fusion commanders for their...

Re: All troop choice army

Yes it would, and I have (semi-successfully) played armies with 80+ mixed tau infantry and you could probably go quite a bit higher. However, and it's a big however, you do need anti armour, which is not fire warriors' strongest suit, so probably fusion commanders. You should be able to make a 2000 ...

Re: 2000pt list

I actually really like this list! It's got a strong gun line, solid deep striking elements and some good skirmishing units. I do have a few changes to propose, mainly to do with upgrades: Drop the SMS on the devilfish for the gun drones. 12" more range and ignores cover are not worth 24 points....

Re: 1800 Point Tournament List: Synergy Heavy

On another note, if the board is 5m by 5m how on earth would you reach the models at the centre? And I think in a city fight the best tactics will be medium range skirmishing - for us, that means CIB Crisis suits, fire warriors with a cadre fireblade, commanders, y'vraha, vespids. Stuff with good mo...

Re: Shield drones. I'm totally confused.

I'll take them on my Flamer Crisis all the time.


Any particular reason they are better with Flamer Crisis than with other loadouts?

Someone remembers my oblique order post? Hurrah! Haha yeah I quite like finding parallels between 40K and actual battle tactics.

Re: 2000pts Mechanised - Much to Improve!

Still not putting the Fireblade with his Gun Drones? Be careful with that, and keep the Devilfish together then! Anyway, good luck! I did find that the list worked better if all the vehicles stayed together, attacking one section of the enemy's line then working up the flank (a mechanised version o...
