Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

I love the ATS. I feel the 1 AP is pretty powerful. Especially on something with 1 AP already. Brings Space marines to a 4+ or a 5 + if -2 AP. Missiles with -2 would bring Termies to 4+ dealing D3. That seems far more killable than a 2+ or even 3+! You do realise you can't take ATS on Space marines...

You have both points and PL listed here, I assume this is for PL then?

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

For the time being, let's cut some of the extraneous units (tiny Shield Drone group, extra Fireblade, extra Fire Warrior squad etc), fix some of the wargear (at least 3 weapons per Commander), add Drones to the units that need them (XV9s) and see what the army looks like. Something like this: HQ - C...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

On XV8s, take three guns. 2xMP+1xATS may be viable, and 2xCIB+1xATS may be viable, but only if you're crunched for points.

These builds suddenly become much more potent on Commanders though- 3xMP+1xATS is fantastic on a Commander, and 3xCIB+1xATS isn't bad.

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

I really like my gunlines but it looks like to be able to survive (in the lower levels at least) I need to sacrifice a bit. I did love the feeling of rolling 108 dice with the 18 drones and Fireblade I ran for the 300 point game, so I think I can live with it for now. I see you put the Fire Warrior...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

Looks like a solid list- 30 Fire Warriors is great to buff with a Fireblade. We can make that 3x10 (not 6x5) to try and avoid First Blood and it'll give us a greater chance of getting first turn; also, we can get plenty of Command Points with the other units. I also like your Pathfinders with Shield...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

A Commander would be a great thing to pick up. I assume you have the following? 12x Kroot 12x Fire Warriors 3x Stealthsuits 1x XV8 1x Devilfish 10x Pathfinders 1x Broadside 6x Gun Drones 1x Marker Drone 4x Pathfinder Drones Something like that? Here's some things you could consider getting: +2x XV8 ...

Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

I like Yojimbob's recommendations. Since you're keeping the special Drones, let's load them up with shield Drones and reduce the small Drone squads a bit across the army and add a 6x Drone group to the XV8s. Here's what we'd be left with: - HQ - Cadre Fireblade w/ Markerlight (42) HQ - Cadre Firebla...

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

So I have 2 lists that I'm on edge about. This will be a straight up kill each other game with these and only these rules 1pt for Tank Killer 2pts for consolidating within 1 inch of an enemy 3pts for winning without using non-walker vehicles. The rules seem straightforward enough. Expect lots of as...

Re: 2500 pts double Y'vahra

Negative on the range. CIB is only 18" whereas plasma rifles are 24" though they are hardly worth it at that range getting a single shot. Even within RF range of 12" they rarely do enough work on the hardy targets due to s6. Positive on the range since the Plasma Rifle is only compar...

Re: 2500 pts double Y'vahra

Nice :) thank u, i like this list . But i have a question, why taking CIBs and not plasma rifle ? On models with toughness up to 5 the plasma rifle is doing more wounds, especially per points. for vehicle with toughness 7 or higher the CIBs become prevlent. Or do they just fit into the structure of...

Re: 2000 points (Tau + Eldar vs Space Wolves + Salamanders) - Thoughts

I had to Manta Strike my Crisis suits in at the start of the second turn to try and distract or deal with the dreadnought. Possibly a bad move, but I felt like I didn't have much of a choice. It worked to an extent that it wasted it's entire shooting phase on them, but the unit was absolutely total...
