Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

Whats the benfit to running 2 pathfinder squads? im guessing can avoid getting swarmed in a single charge, more mobile and can see more of the field, but would offer up another potential victory point. I'd like to bring up a point about pathfinder marker light in general. I think they're best used ...

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

Sorry, have to go one step back again :roll: So the only way my Commander can use the 4+ save is, when he self has equipped a shield generator? And Shield Drone can use the 4+ save instead of the 5+ FNP when not using savior protocol and being the original target? Thanks again hope I will be less c...

Re: Possibly a dumb idea. 25 power tanky madness

As long as you can kill the enemy's main anti-tank threat on turn one you'll probably win. However if they have any kind of kiting ability, you'll be in trouble. I'm actually curious to see how this would work. If they go for kiting I'll use y'varha's forgotten ability: Nova charged move. It'll get...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

It's not that mechanized infantry are bad objective grabbers, just that there are so many other ways to get on to an objective without the overhead cost of a transport. What worries me is the devilfish in and of itself has very little offensive potential, it's essentially a points investment in inc...

Re: Own personal sept fluff

I see the point better now actually. How about the warp generator, instead of causing it to go supernova, just sort of stops the core working and so just stops any light being given off? (I think there's a film where this happens?) Or the Great Rift idea would work, given that it happened about 200...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

11 months for the Ork codex. No way. Not at the rate of 2 per month. GW is going strong! They are not slowing down. Thousands sons early next month, hopefully followed by Tau late February. Space wolves in August also seems super late. Yeah I don't think I believe this one. Sources suggest that all...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Guess its time to switch from building models to making models in blender. If GW doesn’t want to, I’ll make the models myself. Making models in blender sounds cool, but why do you want new models? We got a huge release a couple years back, and that's more than most factions can say. Plus, if you ad...

Re: Own personal sept fluff

What if the planet orbited the star very distantly, and when the star died out, exploded, collapsed, or decayed (or maybe was sucked into the Great Rift?), the planet ended up outside the it's former sun's gravity well, spinning off into extra-solar space under the influence of it's old orbital mome...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

Breachers carry backpack-mounted Guardian shield generator amplifiers, that's why thet get 5++ while normal Strike Team Fire Warriors only get 6++.

Re: About last night's game (Custodes vs 1k sons)

Well a bit confused by the list posted here. So this is how things went down. 1k sons do have access to warptime... Reports actually indicate that 1k sons invuln saves got better rather than worse. Their terminators were reported to have a 4++ base. They did lose the re-roll saves of one aura but i...

Orks eleven months from now? You mean a real release, or the actual Codex in December?

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

This being the case and using the suggested suits to capture then mechanised infantry to hold idea maybe 10 strike with a Cadre Fireblade and a guardian drone. Remember that a single Guardian Drone is essentially a liability though. Only matters against AP-3 weaponry that target your Fire Warriors,...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

What is the purpose of the Fireblade in the fish? Breachers don't benefit from volley fire. If it's the marker light, consider Darkstrider, same BS and only 3 points more, but the breachers could use his structural analyzer. You do lose a bit of durability in the armor save, to be fair. Didn't even...

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

...as you resolve the shooting, each subsequent unit's To Hit and To Wound gains +1 cumulatively. This would help both Sniper Drones, Broadside and to some extent Sky Rays and Hammerheads. There must be a Sept that specialises in Heavy Support??? To be honest, I would take it a a strategem alternat...

You can tell him his codex is coming out at the end of August. And feed on his tears.

I admit I don't follow rumors for any of the other factions. Is that one widely-known?
