Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

y'vahra and storm surge does not have synergy what-so-ever. Storm surge damage output is too low for its points and too fragile survive long range anti tank guns. The only saving grace is its potential range which means it can sit on the backfield objectives while the entire army advances. Might as ...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

As many here in the forum including myself has commented that the y'vahra main purpose is an effective distraction to attract firepower. Since its a huge sink in points, using it meant that the list has to be build around it. What this meant: 1) have as many has point out is having effective amount ...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

Yes, Nova both weapons. Nova one weapon for a 400+ model does not make any sense whatsoever.

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

I use two y'vahra on my list due to its looks rather than its performance. Performance wise, it really depends on what type of game and army you are playing. In a causal game, the y'vahra often overwhelms opponent because they either have no idea what an y'vahra can do or brings less competitive lis...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

sorry...typing mistake...reroll to hit of 1 with ethereals. for me i look at the quality ofthe games rather than rule lawyering. Many times i am not aware of many of my opponent's special rule ....especially with the new edition, but when i felt something is overpowered or makes the game broken, i w...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

For breachers it depends on the opponent that you are playing. I am assuming tournament level opponent in post here and they will know what breacher can and cannot do. For me the range for breachers is just too problematic and unreliable. I used y'vahra and i am already frustrated with the range of ...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

valid point, but for now i continue to play it that way because to me it made sense that the drones of a scout units can scout ahead too especially with a recon drones. The rules are similar to manta strike rules so i do not see a conflict unless the FAQ clears this up. As for the sunshark...well i ...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

You are correct, the pulse accelerator only effect infantry. Though i still take them in my list to boost pathfinders and more importantly to protect my y'vahra and commanders more effectively as it has the vanguard move like the pathfinders and can be positioned midfield and up in turn one. It is a...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

regarding drones + fireblade + devil fish combo, its quite versatile at setting up defensive position in te first two turns. Since most army wants to assault in this edition, the settup is ussually not complicated. Yesterday, i had a game with long range dreadnaught gunline army with smart opponent ...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

regarding longstrike protection by body guard suits, i personally think its not worth it. The body guard suits are even more expensive than long strike and equiping them with missile pod are ineffective in term of offensive power. bs4+ to shoot is just not cutting it at the points required to take t...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

regarding breacher, i have never used them in a game so i am definitely not the authority on breachers. The reason i don't field them because on paper it does not show potential to be a mobile army. It is to reliant on transport and could never put out alpha strike effectively on first turn unless g...

Review of Units for Competitive List

After several games withthe y'vahra, commanders, cold star, drones longstrike and pathfinders, i am confident that only the quad fusion commander and drones are close to being overpowered. here is my take on the units. y'vahra - the initial reaction from my opponent is always negative, accusing it o...
