Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

As far as I'm concerned, a unit has all the special rules it has on the Datasheet unless the text in that special rule says only a specific model from that unit has it or similar exceptions. Of course FW screwed up there, but what's more likely? FW putting there a reminder text of a basic Support S...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Well it's just the most basic of our guns and to be fair we can get those 45 shots quite easily. It's just 2x12 Firewarrior in Rapid fire range. Or if we take Gun Drones then we'd need 67.5 shots without buffs but that's only ~17 Gun Drones even. :P I guess I'm still annoyed by the overall Pulse ne...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

Well the Target Lock does something if you want it to do something. Keep in mind that it doesn't just let us shoot heavy weapons without penalty after moving, it also let us shoot assault weapons without penalty after advancing and rapid fire weapons after advancing with a -1 to-hit penalty. ;) Tru...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Looks like a fun list! There are a few tweaks we can make though. First, a nearly 400pt XV8 team really isn't going to make its points back. 8 Missile Pods sounds like a lot, but with BS4+ you're going to see 8 hits, 2-4 wounds, maybe 1D3 or 2D3 damage on a vehicle. Let's just drop that squad for th...

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

I really appreciate your taking the time to make this extensive tactica! However, making sure your information is accurate is a very important part of tactica-writing, so let me clarify a few points: As it does not need to be set up at the start, and can be placed in a movement phase, it can help wi...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

That's because the XV84 doesn't just come with a Networked Markerlight, it also comes with a Target Lock by default. ;) I don't actually own Index: Xenos, just working from what I see here. Found the datasheet online though... it has the Target Lock reminder text in its description but isn't actual...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

So yes it's a regular game but the only way to get points for the tournament is under those conditions. Well, this should make for a very strange tournament! Assuming people play competitively (they should, it's a tournament after all) no one will bring tanks. This means all players will score the ...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

As someone who started only after the new Crisis and Broadsides got released...no, just no. Nothing to impress new players and definitely not a wonderful model. The newer ones look so much better. The only reason why I would be surprised to see them is because I'd be surprised someone would still u...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Also it appears you just have been lucky or your opponent extremely unlucky. Normaly you'd need 45 Pulse shots to kill a unit of 10 Poxwalker on average and that's without any buffs or debuffs from any side. Oh, don't do the math about Pulse Rifles! It's always so depressing. Not that any other arm...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

1) Swap out the MP for CIB; they are both cheaper, and against the light infantry you can expect to see more useful. Also worth being aware that I think you are 16 points over here so you need to lose some points anyway. I think this list is 506 points- the Coldstar comes out to 150 points if I did...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Not to assume, but is the person who's running this tournament possibly a non-native speaker of English? Anyway, both killing tanks and not bringing tanks score you points. So we'll assume that nobody will bring tanks. Which means... it's just a game about consolidating near the enemy? :-( Oh sorry...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

HQ - XV84 Commander w/ 3x Missile Pods, Networked Markerlight (155) The XV84 only has 2 slots, so max 2 pods. But otherwise, great tweaks on that list! :) I thought it had four slots, one of which was pre-filled by the Networked Markerlight. Or is it two weapon slots, one system slot, and the Marke...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Yeah I feared that was the case. The old broadside is the one with the old Crisis body + additional metal weapon bitz. Not a model I'd use by my own choice considering how awesome the actual Broadside model looks to be honest. :sad: Seems ok weapon wise I think. Need a larger base though. Do like t...

Re: Old XV88 Kit

I see. Will keep it as an XV88. Maybe find the correct base. As a side note, I have an oldish battleforce like this. Are all the bases in this one correct? For old models like old XV8s and old XV88s, keep them on the bases they come with. Stealthsuits, on the other hand, have had their bases update...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

I saw the index version of the zombies absorb an entire army's worth of shooting so I am surprised to hear you say that an 8 man strike team wiped them out. It just has to be that the zombie army wasn't all that good. I've seen Death Guard armies take an absurd amount of fire and keep on walking- r...

Re: Character Targeting rules

I'm a bit confused about the rules regarding the targeting of characters. As I understand it, your opponent cannot target your character models unless they are the closest unit, with the explicit exception of units using the sniper rules. However, my friend (who plays Deathwatch) seems convinced th...
