As shown, "tactics" are powerful stuff.


Well, there is supposed to be 10 codexes released this year, as there are 16 armies in 40k we have a 63% chance of receiving a codex. However GW has already announced the first four codexes so our chances drop to 50%.

Seriously though, in a few month the winter release codexes will be leaking everywhere.

Re: Retooling the Ghostkeel: My request to GW

I don't know, I usually field my keel with a CIR, BC, ATS, and a drone controller. Then I set it up with a cloud of gun/marker drones. This combined "unit" can easily take and hold a midfield objective. The -2 to hit and all the drones means the keel is pretty durable. However I feel like ...

Re: Anyone nostalgic for the run-up to 8th Edition?

I don't feel nostalgic because 8th is still new and isn't fully released yet. The codexes are still coming.

Re: Expanding my new Cadre?

If you buy the coldstar/commander kit and build the coldstar you can use the extra "normal" commander bits to beef up a standard xv8. Putting it on a flying stand makes it taller and easier to recognize as a commander.

Re: XV8s - From Theory to Tabletop

My favorite so far is 2 plasma and a flamer with the Shas getting two flamers and a drone controller. Good at taking down TEQs and the overwatch is very effective.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

With the 6+ mortal wound (which I believe most other sniper units have) I would almost be tempted to drop the 40 bucks. Or convert normal drones.

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

Well... each sept will probably have it's own tactic so lets look at the ones we currently have in the index and speculate about others they may add GW: Farsight Enclaves- combat buff T'au Sept- shooting buff Vior'la Sept- ??? FW: Dal'yth- ??? Ke'lshan- ??? Vior'la could be either a movement or tou...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

The tau tactic could be: all "SEPT" units with the fly keword may make an additional movement in the assault phase. That would be super nice for mobility.

Re: Manta strike on sparse boards

If your opponent is prepared it can be hard to get where you want to deep strike/manta drop. The main advantage in my opinion is you can "hide" the units you put in the manta. I have left a single coldstar commander in the manta until late game when I drop him on an enemy objective, which ...

Re: 8th Edition - Translation Discrepancies

Pulse blast cannon
Destroyer missile
Ion accelerator
Ion cannon
Cyclic ion raker
Cyclic ion blaster

Hope that helps. If you need something else translated from the new codex I'll be getting it later this week.

Re: Rising Star: Cold Star Commander In 8th Edition

The realization that ATS applies to combat brings another aspect of the Cold star to the fore: their absolutely INSANE charge range: 20''+2d6. 4 base attacks, hitting first on the charge, hitting on 3+, S5, AP-1, while sitting on T5 W6 3+/4++, makes them a formidable CC unit, and they are fast enou...

Re: DIY improved hammerhead flying base

Yes, but I already had the second base lying around and I didn't want to pay for a base. Plus the hammerhead is a flying vehicle and distances are measured from the hull. If I used a "real" base then it could be confused with where the measurements are coming from.

DIY improved hammerhead flying base

My hammerhead flying base was constantly breaking, so I "improved" it a little. ;) Step 1: acquire 2 flying bases and cut a rough crescent shape out of 1. Step 2: attach the bases together with glue and green stuff. http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah17/tybroderi/IMG_0173_zpskbbsnwvi.jp...

Re: Rising Star: Cold Star Commander In 8th Edition

One burst cannon=4 shots
One high output burst cannon=8 shots
One high output burst cannon=2 burst cannons
So it's like getting a free weapon because the normal commander cannon take the high output burst cannon.
