Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Here's my take on viable XV8 builds: Competitive Builds: 2x CIB + 1x ATS (All purpose anti-infantry and anti-vehicle) 2x Fusion Blaster + 1x Flamer (Anti-vehicle alpha strike) 3x Flamer (Anti-infantry alpha strike) Situational Builds: 3x CIB (Slightly inefficient for its cost) 2x CIB + 1x Flamer (G...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

True, Panzer, but it is also something in syngery with (my current) armylist and how I operate it. I usually have a QFB commander nearby and when he targets a big target I will have ML's on it (atleast 1) and if he wasn't able to finish it off then I have the chance to still do so with the XV8's tha...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I was thinking about that as well, but I don't think it's a very strong loadout. I think that 3x Flamers (on 3 XV8's) is too little to make a good impact on bigger infantry units (10+) and 6 would do the job nicely to get enough kills while 9 is overkill. So while you are within 8" for your ta...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I would add "Flamer, Flamer, FB" to the serious load out list.
I have used that setup to great effect

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

Kakapo, I'm curious as to why you don't like Chapter Tactics? It adds a lot of flavor, though I could wish it was a bit more balanced. Some are blatantly better than others, though it seems as though each codex is generally having at least two functional builds, which is a nice variety to see. It's...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

I can't say anything about the previous editions besides that it always prefented me from entering 40k. Now with 8th edition I feel that the step in level to get around the rules was easy enough to do so. And this is also what the hobby needed to get more people playing it as the player base needs t...

Re: Revisiting the 2xCIB+1xATS Build on XV8s

So, I've been thinking more about my own list recently (link in my signature) and I'm struggling to justify the 8xCIB+Drone Controller build on XV8s, as compared with the 2xCIB+1xATS build which could be used instead. I know the forum (and myself) largely sided with the 8xCIB build a month or two a...

Re: replacement/alternative Drone disc's

I managed to get a load of discs both new and used from eBay. It is worth keeping your eyes open as you never know when you may be lucky ;) I'll have a look around, though it surprises me that there are any (without the rest of the drone parts).. I'll have to dig up my old ebay account then, haven'...

Re: Small Wrinkle: Strike Team 'Ui Pistol

It usually is better to fall back and shoot with a different unit at it though. The single BS4+ S5 AP0 shot won't change the combat. Usually true indeed, but last game I had it was tying up a combat unit and character, that I wasn't prepared to deal with yet as I had more pressing targets to deal w...

replacement/alternative Drone disc's

So I'm a bit dissapointed that we get bits for all 3 the drone types except the disc part. I do not like to magnetize that stuff to swap out. But rather would like to build them up completely. Are there any decent alternatives to the drone discs available? I did see one link (http://www.reddogminis....

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

Let's try that again but with the assumption you can choose which dice you reroll. 4,5,6 are hits 1,2,3 are misses and eligible for reroll You know you have +1 to hit so choose to reroll just the 1+2 You now roll a 3+4 with those dice Apply the +1 You have now rolled 4,4,5,5,6,7 and landed 6 hits. ...

Re: Looking for a good pairing for tau

What about another Tau army so you can benefit form eachothers ML also?
I also got a team tournament coming up where you also designate 1 Warlord from your team, if that complicates (or makes it easier) things.

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

On the subject of comboing up with a fireblade. It's probably worth noting that another point in the pulse rifle's favour over the carbine is that with a fireblade, rifles get that extra 3rd shot between 2"-15". Carbines get 3 shots at 2"-9". Unless there are some rules I am awa...

Re: Command Points: How do I use them???

You can use Command Points to pay for Stratagems. The new Codexes will have Stratagems unique* for those armies. There are 3 (4) standard ones: 1CP - Command re-roll, re-roll any single dice (the one you claim for failed to hit) 2CP - Counter offensive, you can use this after the first charger from ...
