Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

2d6 damage wouldn't be the solution though. Just having a single shot is the problem. It was the problem in 7th and is the problem now. Oh, I'm talking about having both abilities. 2D6 damage and two shots. Space Marine Predators have 4d6 potential damage. Leman Russes have 3D6 potential damage, or...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

It would help to close the gap to space marine tanks but of course wouldn't be enough to close the gap to the other tanks that can double tap now. I think it would give us more parity, but we'd still lag behind every other faction. You're still looking, statistically, at less than one wound. Howeve...

Re: Start Collecting box and 4th ed. conversion advice

first off, there seems to be 3 crisis suit variants in the box, and this is kind of bugging my mind, I get that there are 3 base models, 1 iridium conversion Ignore the bulky chestplate and the bulky legs (or use them in conversions, your call), and you should have enough parts for three standard X...

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

Sounds like a fun game! Glad you enjoyed it! They knew we would manta strike and deployed accordingly. Turned into our favour still. Throughout the game it ended up so we removed units while they managed to just not, leaving 100 pt units of theirs at times forced to fire into 8-16 points remainders....

Re: 250pt vs Ork Escalation League game

Although somehow I think your maths doesn't add up cos I got: Commander, 3xCIB, ATS, 1 Gun Drone - 146pts 5x Fire Warriors - 40pts 4 x Gun drone - 32pts 4x Gun Drone - 32pts which is more than what you put and 2 less points. Oops! You're correct! Shh, don't tell anyone I can't add :P Anyway, yeah, ...

Re: 250pt vs Ork Escalation League game

I quite like the list, definitely utilises the commander BS2. But worried about lack of overall fire power against the (small) green hoard! Or actually it's probably about the same, but those flamers would be devastating. Well, if you're worried about horde armies, let's do a little math! 1x CIB vs...

Re: Onmyou's motivation service

Checking in again after a week! The first ten Fire Warriors' bases are finished up, I went with a dry/arid scheme to try and replicate how the planet T'au might look. Anyway, we also have four new finished Gun Drones (with magnetized stands!), two basecoated Gun Drones, and six basecoated Fire Warri...

Re: 250pt vs Ork Escalation League game

A 250-point list? Cute! Should be a fun game! One thing though- Flamers are pretty inefficient on Commanders as they waste that awesome BS2+. It might sound boring, but consider using CIBs instead. The Markerlight will also be a waste- in a 250-point game it's not worth the loss of a shooting Pulse ...

The wording here actually is ambiguous. I'd be curious to see if GW would comment if someone asked on their FB page or something.

Would anyone be interested in working on a little "Codex predictions" thread, and keeping it updated? To see how close we, the community, can guess what GW will do with the new Codex? Could b fun! :D

Re: Tau's most annoying weakness. Thoughts?

While browsing this discussion and seeing how there are so many enemy debuffs to shooting and how our shooting is so "meh" from the get go, would this fix anything? There would be a T'au specific keyword that doesn't allow any T'au unit to drop their BS worse than 5+ (or 4+ but I'm afraid...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

This thread's back! Our tanks are in such a bad place right now... best not to think about it and instead reminisce about good ol' 5th Edition where Hammerheads could knock out Land Raiders in a single shot :D How does the IonHead factor into this? It's higher rate if fire seems like it should help ...
