Re: Demon counter list 2000pts

I think something to take into consideration is that Deamon army damage output relies mostly on Smite/mortal wounds output and Close combat. Having the Hazard not only lets you drop in 4 more drones to cover the Y'Vahra, it also has a massive anti horde presence. Since the targets will only have an ...

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

That Salamanders trait would be...really really good. That would actually fix the problems with a fair few units! I'd like to see some unique ones though. Having every 2nd army with -1 to hit at >12" is getting boring. Same with the re-roll 1s etc. I'd love to see overwatch on a 5+, or maybe +1...

Re: 500 point escalation army list against grey Knights and marines

What a small world, I'm also from the land most bonnie!! I'm based in Stirling, where abouts are you from? (if you don't mind me asking!) Not at all, Im from Glasgow, but playing mainly in an east kilbride and a hamilton group. I always struggle to find the line when toning down aggression. I think...

Re: 500 point escalation army list against grey Knights and marines

Thanks for all the help guys. I’ll be a little disappointed if he does bring something as cheesy when we have been specifically requested not to bring cheesy lists. It does look like at the moment that club may be snowed off (the joys of living in Scotland ;) ) but I’ll definitely post a battle rep...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

Awesome thread. Can you clarify please if the Nova overcharge both weapons or a single one? I was playing that it overcharge only one. Thank you. It actually overcharges both. It had been even asked directly to ForgeWorld, althoug I don't remember in which post was said. If you analyze carefully th...

To preface, we cannot have a conversation if you're not going to reply properly, or if you're going to change your mind on what was actually said. You said, specifically , and I'm quoting here: I agree. What matters is that it was nearly a faction-defining trait, and was removed without compensatin...

Re: 500 point escalation army list against grey Knights and marines

Sounds like a great game plan to me. Honestly if the GK army doesn't have heavy shooting there might not really be a win condition, seeing as a single skirmishing CIB Commander could ruin a big chunk of it. Fun stuff. Thanks! Should amount to a tense game. If the DK makes any charges that could be ...

Re: 500 point escalation army list against grey Knights and marines

Huh. Personally I've never seen GK in battle at anything below 1500 points. I figured they'd be stronger in low points games, since you can easily field things against which there's almost no counter, like Land Raiders or Stormravens. Without a tailored list most players would be very hard-pressed ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Images of another Warhammer 40,000 facebook comment indicate that GW feels the T'au statlines are good, and right where they ought to be, based on the fluff. The rest of the comment seems somewhat...explosive...so I'll avoid posting it directly, for now. But those who are expecting or anticipating ...

Re: 500 point escalation army list against grey Knights and marines

What are good GK builds looking like these days? Razorback and MSU spam? It's looking like Grandmaster dreadknight spam, or lots of interceptor/strike/purgation squads. Paladins are also pretty awesome. There's actually a decent amount of 'viable' builds. A really strong list I've faced was a combo...

Re: 500 point escalation army list against grey Knights and marines

As a GK player myself, I can tell you that he'll have an unholy(holy?) amount of BS3+ S4 shots, so expect drones to die in droves. Getting first turn would be important here because he has to deploy some of his forces on the board, and killing those before he can drop down his other units will give ...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

I actually really like this idea and I think that the reorder of the rules makes it flow more nicely while also putting more of an emphasis on an aggressive playstyle by listing "Keep it killing" before "Keep it alive". I'll update the 'golden rules' to this kind of format and a...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

Hi Arka, thanks for the feedback! Do you think it's worth including a small section on "Playstyle"? For example, including an emphasis on a very aggressive playstyle to ensure that the Y'Vahra is "firing on all cylinders". A section on playstyle could definitely be useful. I lik...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

f you are not getting the Y'Vahra into 8" of a valuable target and Nova Charging the weapons every turn then it is not doing its job. Honestly this is the best advice you can give. About not just the Y'vahra, really any unit. Units need to be relevant and performing their roles every turn. Max...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

i think some more discussion of the Nova Charge. Realistically we can mention them all but if you are not getting the Y'Vahra into 8" of a valuable target and Nova Charging the weapons every turn then it is not doing its job. Reinforce the point that this very expensive model needs to be putti...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

I think that is an excellent article which should be included in the sticky introduction article. The general thrust of the article - the Y'Vahra justifies building a list around it and works best when you do - is in my opinion spot-on. Thanks very much! I really appreciate the feedback :) I think ...
