Re: The run to 8th edition

Take a look at Leman Russ' battle canon and will be obvious, that Nova Charged Ion well be D6 hits with D3 damage, without any known ordance bonus (for now). The funny thing is that power fist are D3 damage with -1 to hit, they are less powerful than they are in 7th, comparing to a lascannon. The un...

Re: The run to 8th edition

These reserve charges gonna ruin the game in a favor of "who's gonna seize the initiative". Chaos Terminators, demons, tyranids, anyone. If you go first, than you destroy a 25% of enemy's army with turn 1 charges. Hope Early Warning Override is still a thing. The only other way is position...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I wonder how they would represent the weak back\side armor. As for now it seems like it's gone, and there is no difference in positioning and it's boring. Leman Russes are weaker because they are no longer front AV14 as they are AV12(T8) all around.

Re: The run to 8th edition

That's actually bad, as most of our weapons are S5, they will be wounding horde, T3 armies on a 3+ instead of a 2+, making us much more vulnerable to gaunts and IG infantry.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Also, multiple auto hits for templates and blast weapons make them very nasty against vehicles and monstrous creatures. The overload function of ion weapons suddenly looks a lot better. The blast on the Ghostkeel's fusion collider is a lot better now too. I think that template and blast weapons wou...

How do you actually deal with AV14 ?

Hi all! There are lots and lots heavy armored vehicles in my meta, ork wagons, land raiders, necron monoliths, leman russes ... As HRR are S8 i really struggle with opening AV14 metal boxes. At a 1500 points game having 2 railsides and a riptide I almost never succeed opening them during turn 1. And...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

Oops, you are right. Haven't played tau yet, last time I played 5ed blood angels. Sure, they are easy victory points, but they are great for small format games, and the Sniper Drone Team can be easily enlarged with up to 2 marksmen and/or up to 6 sniper drones for extra wounds. I think this build is...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

Sure, it's not a core, but it's better than Point'O, he's 85+8+56=149 points for 4 BS5 MLs with 0 firepower and without great LD10+Invocation of Elements of an Ethereal.

So, anybody knows a way to pick an Ethereal in a Hunter Contigent without 2 compulsory Commanders ?

Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

I somehow came to this scheme and thought that it is extremely point effective. It's like 50+24+58 = 132 points. You get 3 marker lights at BS5 from drone controller, 2 of which have target lock. You get a majority toughness of 4 and a stealth, so they are twice more survivable than pathfinders. And...
