Re: Going against the nids

When i decided to play 40k and not just because my friends handed me a fist full of proxies and told me to Roll. I had tried dwarves in fantasy and did not have much an interest in the harsh i go you go or clear papper scissors that the skaven and orcs presented. One day i seen a picture in random ...

Re: My 1800 Tournament results from last weekend

I forgot completely that you can't use markerlights in overwatch. I'm just very...forgetful with stuff I never use much. I mean, yes, I use markerlights A LOT, but this was technically my first major tournament (as in not just aranged with friends or one where I dropped out within the first ten minu...

Re: My 1800 Tournament results from last weekend

Yeah, there isn't something like unbound detachments. Either all of your units are in proper detachments or you are playing an unbound army with non of the benefits of a battleforged army (and usually not even allowed on tournaments). Sorry about that. I use battlescribe, since the core rulebook I ...

Re: My 1800 Tournament results from last weekend

I didn't read all off that wall of text, but it sounds like you got some things about the Coldstar confused. Thr only protection the maneuverability of the Coldstar offers is the being able to stay away from the enemy and behind friendly units for the Character rule. And of course he can get charge...

Re: My 1800 Tournament results from last weekend

Sounds like you had a solid showing!! Congrats on doing so well. Out of so many players, it's always good to see Tau come in at the top few places. It sounds like there were a couple of rules mistakes but you clearly looked it up afterward and cleared things up. However, I'm a little curious about ...

Re: My 1800 Tournament results from last weekend

OK. Looked through my models and thought very hard about what models I bought with what upgrades. This is a approximation of my list. Remember that there was a 10% allowable overflow from the 1800 point limit, due to some of the rules being changed at the last minute forcing rapid list changes. The ...

My 1800 Tournament results from last weekend

Hello ATT!!! Now, I posted a 1800 point tournament list that was greatly improved on by the community for a tournament I did the previous weekend. About 25 people other than myself showed up. I took notes, so I remember there were four Orks players (all going for mob tactics with very little vehicle...

Yep. Admins, lock this thread. If anyone is going to start a new Blood Angels Tactica, feel free to do so. This one ended up being a very off-topic discussion.

Re: 3500 points Mobility list: I have NBTD

As for the actual rule, any tactical drones that are taken as wargear split off to form 1 drone individual units after placement. While the original 4 drones have to be part of the squad any extra drones added to a Tactical Drone Team do not have to remain as part of the unit after initial placement...

Re: 3500 points Mobility list: I have NBTD

Ok, here's the tl;dr: Tau drone units are a index listing. Said units have 4 drones to start with. Any drones added to the original 4 drone unit composition (so drones 5-12) follow the Drone Support special rule, and do NOT affect morale, due to being treated as individual units after placement. Can...

Damm, hit the quote button instead of the edit button. Whoops, my mistake. Ignore the original unqouted section, and focus on the edited quote by me.

Re: 3500 points Mobility list: I have NBTD

However, the Drone Support is also listed in my index as one of the selection rules for Tactical Drone Squads. If you look at this logically (ahem): - We all agree that if a specific entry in a codex, index or whatever you call the listing of units and the rules for them is in that entry, it applie...

Re: 3500 points Mobility list: I have NBTD

As Arka said, I don’t think there is a drone loophole. When you bring Drones with squads they come in pairs and therefore when they’re separate units they can loose one or two Drones to an attack, if you loose two Drones then there is no need to take a morale tests as they are both dead :P but if y...

Re: Fighting Blood Angels: Need Nelp with Tactics

Also just noticed that two of the shield vanes on the model are missing, and there are several scratches on the riptide. Damm. Now I'm going to have to repaint.
