Re: Playing against Grey Knights 1000 pts, please help

if you are facing a grey night or marine army then your XV8's MUST have plasma! No other option even comes CLOSE. It's literally what plasma are designed to combat. If you have leftover points from the swap, take extra gundrones with your suits. They will need the extra protection! Secondly, swap th...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

Now now, it's "only" the Ghostkeel stealth. If we get within 12" they won't have anything anymore. ;) Also Ravenguard as well have technology to mask themselves. Not as good as Stealth Suits but it should be comparable to giant Ghostkeels trying to hide in plain sight without their D...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

WoW, GW just gave an entire chapter stealth, How do they justify it? We have specifically designed stealth suits that can turn the user nearly invisible. RavenGuard, because of reasons... Pretty sure they don't have fluff to equal a stealthsuit? I also thought they were trying to release a balanced ...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

You're very narrow minded because you simply want to cry about how bad T'au are and it frankly becomes annoying. There, I said it. Sorry Mods. really? You think i'm narrow minded because i think Tau are weak. Obviously you never actually read ANYTHING i said. I never once complained about us being ...

Re: Let's Contact GW!

The rulebook and FAQ both clearly state that dice are re-rolled before modifiers are applied.

re-rolls only effect natural dice rolls.
Effects that trigger on certain numbers happen after modifiers.

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

We almost have nothing faction specific left that hasn't had its heart and soul torn out and fed to others. Wait what? Loads of armies have the Fly keyword. Eldar, Space Marines, Necrons, Ministorum, and Dark Eldar have Fly units too. name a single faction that has more % units with the fly keyword...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

Its just another Tau specific trait that's been handed out to others free of charge. We almost have nothing faction specific left that hasn't had its heart and soul torn out and fed to others. I'm sorry if this sounds pessimistic, but try and think of 1 specific aspect of the Tau that another factio...

Re: Tau vs AM 1500p - Taurus Carricare

Always take SMS on longstrike.

30" range, hit on 2+ and wound all vehicles on a 4+ (remember tank ace works on his secondary weapons too.)

Yes Railguns are rediculously underpowered in this edition.

Re: For the Greater Good question.

Ok thanks, I think I get it :D I thought FtGG was an addition to regular overwatch, but it just expands a single 'round' of overwatch to encompass more units. So in my first example my broadside and fire warriors would just overwatch normally, they couldn't use FtGG because it cannot be used after ...

Re: Let's Contact GW!

I would prefer commanders to be restricted to three weapons than a price increase.

xv8's, riptide and alternates need BS3+ rather than a point drop.

Re: For the Greater Good question.

I don't understand, can't a unit fire normal overwatch then FTGG overwatch? I know you can't do it the other way round, but you can overwatch the normal way multiple times without restrictions.. For the Greater Good: When an enemy unit declares a charge, a unit with this ability that is within 6&qu...

Re: For the Greater Good question.

"a unit that does so [fires overwatch using FtGG] cannot fire overwatch again this turn" Regardless of weather a unit was declared as part of the charge or not is completely irrelevant. The unit IS firing overwatch during FTGG. Both the rules as Intended AND rules as written forbid you fro...
