Re: Stormsurge

Lots of weird decisions here IMO. Why no crushing feet? Why T7? Why no anchors turn 1? Why no battlesuit keyword? Why 6" movement when all other big models get way more? Why not zoidberg? Is there ANY other titanic (humanoid) model that doesn't get to walk over infantry models? Or that doesn't ...

Re: Talk about Farsight and Shadowsun

Well that's the difference between a special character with custom gear and an ultra (no pun intended) useful aura....and special characters with a meh special rule and a fix loadout consisting of basic weaponry like Fusion Blaster or Plasma Rifles. Makes me think giving them a better aura would be...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Have any of the codices given meaning to the "jet pack" key word? That would provide some insight into what we can expect on that front.

Re: Photon Grenades -- What's the Point?

I once rolled 27 dice on a stormsurge overwatch and got one six. That has no relation to this thread but....I’m still mad.

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

Maybe not the weapons, but what about the buff to HtoH with the ATS? It's pretty much a given that you're going to end up in close combat at least once. Not rly, the flamer overwatch is kinda brutal. Charges from outside 8" though Yes that is right both weapons can be used with the Nova reacto...

Re: 8th ed transports, EWO, and deployment

Must have been too early this AM when I posted. I recalled reading someone saying that it had to be the unit’s own ability. Went back through and couldn’t find it. Apologies extended. :fear:

Re: 8th ed transports, EWO, and deployment

Some misinformation here about EWO. The unit does NOT have to be from reserve or use its own ability. Things like a psyker phase teleport would trigger EWO (read the updated faq for reference). This is despite wording in the rule that somewhat contradicts that application... But what else is new rig...

Re: Vertical movement question

The more I think about it the less it makes sense really. If you can end on top of a ruins without extra movement then you can move ANY amount of verticality on a terrain piece without movement cost. Or, if you want to get picky, the cost to move off and immediately back on said terrain piece.

Disgustingly Resilient: Each time a model in this unit loses a wound, roll a D6; on a roll of 5 or 6, the model does not lose that wound.

Re: Xv9 with DBBC is anything better point for point?

These seem almost annoyingly mispriced compared to regular crisis. For 19 more points, it can take what is effectively 4 guns, gets 2 extra wounds, 2 extra drones, decreases opposing charge distances, and still take a system on top of all that! Add in that the burst guns themselves are underpriced; ...

I'm not sure I understand what this means. Something like "Not more than 25% of your total units in your list may consist of these units."? (Would mean you can only take one of this unit per 3 different units in your list) In Warmachine each unit card (which includes the stat line and abi...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

I wish they’d add a unit specific limit ala warmachine. It would resolve all spam issues and would also incentivize larger unit sizes in certain circumstances.

Good write up. Didn’t see this mentioned in your post but it’s worth mentioning: “If your army is Battle-forged, all INFANTRY , BIKER and DREADNOUGHT units in a Space Marines Detachment gain a Chapter Tactic, so long as every unit in that Detachment is drawn from the same Chapter“ So plain vehicles ...
