Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Hey party people, can we talk a bit about the pros and cons of Fire Warrior Strike Teams swapping their rifles for Pulse Carbines? They're the same guns Pathfinders get, right?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Why is there no bit in Xenos 2 under Commander that talks about drones dropping off so to speak? Am I just missing it? Is it based on a different rule somewhere? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

Edit:
...oops, it's in the Errata/FAQ

Thank you just the same

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

I'm confused about how drones work when they're taken with a Commander.

All other units (Pathfinders, Stealth Suits, etc) have the drones set up with the unit and then become their own.

So if someone shoots at a Commander and 2 drones, which stats am I using? It's all one unit right?

Re: 750pt New Player League

I'm not super concerned with winning. This is a league for novice players to muck about. I want to try stuff that appeals to me, but not have a total doo-doo list. To be clear, I'll run all the drones I happen to own, but I'm not buying any loose or getting kits just for drones. Although, if Crisis ...

Re: 750pt New Player League

That's not a very kind take on my sportsmanship!

Seriously though, it's also vague. Could you elaborate?

Re: 750pt New Player League

I really hate moving a billion pieces around the table, to be honest. And while I'm saving up for a Storm Surge, really only a Broadside, Commander, Ghostkeel or Riptide are within my range.

I'm going to edit my OP since I feel like I could word it better.

Re: 750pt New Player League

I'd prefer a mostly Battlesuit army! I'm not going to be aiming to take down any tournaments, but I would like to not totally embarass myself week to week.

I'm fine with adding some Vespids or Kroot, but completely disinterested in vehicles.

You'll want to check this thread out to bring yourself up to speed.

Drones come in all the boxes I listed.

750pt New Player League

So! The 500pt League at my LGS ended, and a 750pt League begins! I'd like help adding a Ghostkeel, Broadside or Riptide to my list, and in understanding the ins and outs of all their options. The original thread: http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=26047 Here's what I own, all...

http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=26056 Stumbled across this, and was wondering why all the Gun Drones are spread out? Just as speedbumps? Can anyone give me a few guidelines of when I shoulf charge enemy units? How many Shield Drones should go with a Commander? Should I drop...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

My inexperience bit me this game too. Deployment and unit positioning were as much a problem as the enemy. In retrospect, I should have formed a mosh pit in one corner and just lit up a single enemy unit each turn. Is starting with the Pink Horrors a good idea? Also, can characters hang out in the m...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

The Changeling causes all Tzeentch Daemon units less than 9in away to force you to subtract 1 from your to-hit rolls. And bird perverts get +1 to their invulnerable saves on top of that just for being themselves.

It was rough.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Victory again, but it didn't feel like one. I was up against Chaos Daemons; The Changeling, 10 Pink Horrors, 3 Flamers, 3 Screamers and 2 Plague Beasts (plus points for Blue and Brimstone Horrors). I couldn't hit sand falling off a camel, and those saves were impossible to get through. My opponenet ...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

I'm currently fielding six drones, so if I give two to to the Commander and add two fire warriors there are still two drones left.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

So now I'm really interested in how Shield Drones fit in to things. For starters, I'm considering ditching the blob of Gun Drones and just jamming 2x Shield Drones with my Commander, Steath Suits and Pathfinders.

Is this good? Stupid? Why or why not? What did I miss?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

It's super ambiguous for sure. I always check the books before posting, and that one gave me pause even after multiple reads. Maybe 'shoot' and 'attack' and 'weapon' could all be clarified somehow? I'm not a rules scientist.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Right; under the weapon profiles it says that (guntype n) means n attacks. So I used the word attack.
