Re: GrimDarkMath - Suggestions and requests

Hey, great resource, keep up the good work :) One thing I'd like to see are TEQ with Storm Shield (T4 2+/3++ with 2W) and possibly MEQ with SS as well (T4 3+/3++ with 1W and multiple Wounds for Characters). Although your list is getting quite large. I don't know if that is possible, but maybe add a ...

Re: XV8s - From Theory to Tabletop

I'm not a big fan of 3 of the same weapons on a suit from a visusal point of view, so I've been trying (or am planning to try) some 2 weapons/support system builds as well as some mixed weapons builds. One I've used twice is a 5 suit team with 2x 2 CIB + DC/VT + 3x 2 PR/FT, accompanied by 10 Drones ...

Re: 8th Edition - Translation Discrepancies

It seems like just the points are flipped. I assume "Feuerleitsystem" is Target Lock, right? And "Multiple Zielerfassung" is Multi-Tracker? The Target Lock is the one about moving and firing. The Multi-Tracker allows re-rolling 1s. The German book's translation seems right then,...

Re: 8th Edition - Translation Discrepancies

The MT/TL-issue seems to be more than just a simple typo, though; it appears they switched the effect of MT and TL around. Which confused the hell out of me when looking up the english names for systems using the points cost with the german Index and Battlescribe. German Index has two those two warg...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

After GW clarified that they will "update" units with new points cost/possibly different wargear options and those changes will overwrite the corresponding Index entry, and with the mix of "main" codexes (sm, csm) and subfactions, one thing they could to would be to release a cod...

Re: Early Warning Override

Tried them on a RR/PR Broadside and on a squad of Crisis with Plasma Rifles (in two different games). You can't deploy the Broadside too far back obviously; and against storm shields, the HYMP Broadside would have done much better. The Crisis squad... well, I didn't actually deploy them with my army...

Velocity Tracker question

Hi there,

I have the german index, so i'm not sure if this is a translation error: the velocity tracker entry states that a United equiped with a vt gets its benefits, while most others (mt, ats, ewo etc) say a model equiped with x gain y. So does one vt in a crisis squad work for the wohle squad?

Re: 8th edition Stealthsuits

Dang, I though it was still 2 per suit. In that case, separate drone swarms, although that means they can't be infiltrated together and also more units to deploy. Makes the wohle thing less appealing, although I still want to try it -now that I finally managed to paint them up :-/
