Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

That's correct, but 1 hit wouldn't buff your BS, just let you re-roll ones.
But it still probably not worth it as Panzer pointed out. Oh well, just looking for more ways to play :biggrin:

Questionable use for countefire defense system

I know it's technically allowed, but would it be worth the points to mount the counterfire defense system on a stealth 'vre with the markerlight? It's not a huge increase in the odds of getting that markerlight hit, and even if you do re-rolling ones won't net that many more. But it only costs 14 po...

Agreed, the ONLY really good thing about marker lights is that the tokens persist the whole turn instead of being "spent"

Re: Combined arms FoF

What's the advantage of using 2 teams of firewarriors instead of 2 squads of gun drones, is it just that it makes a battalion detachment? Also why a 10 man breacher instead of 2 five man teams? Yes, for the battalion and if I remember correctly the new chapter approved gives priority to troops for ...

Could, I've been running my suits as close assault units, but with the right load out that would work well.

Re: Combined arms FoF

it's a one shot trick. I don't play mech, but I have a feeling that this might work better not as a "one-shot trick" but rather as a method of rapid deployment. Race forward, get close to the enemy, and then set up a new forward firebase. You'd never re-mount unless there were serious thr...

Combined arms FoF

I haven't tried this in a game yet, just set up a few trials on my own against static units. But it seemed to be very effective against Marines and even crisis suits. For 501 points you have: Darkstrider, a fireblade, 10 breachers and two squads of 5 strikers with rifles in 2 devil fish with drones....

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

The problem with leaving it as is but choosing between two types is people will take one buff commander then 9 strike commanders. Hmm, good point. What if a signature system took up 2 slots and you could only have 1 per commander? It doesn't feel right to me but it feels balance3d I don't see how t...

Re: Devilfish in 8th

What's the point level minimum where the 'fish is worth it though? I play a lot of smaller games ( =/< 1000) and have a hard time dropping 10%-20% of my points on it. I keep trying to build lists with one then panic and trade it for 4 stealth suits :D

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

No. Suits are still bad in melee, even with ATS. The Commander is okay-ish in melee with ATS due his BS3+ but every other suit still sucks. It's nice to have in case you end up in melee (which is not as terrible as it used to be since we can just leave and keep shooting) but it's nothing you should...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

Maybe not the weapons, but what about the buff to HtoH with the ATS? It's pretty much a given that you're going to end up in close combat at least once.

Re: SLA printed drones & CIB

The material cost is very low. It took 4 cc of resin and a liter is only $150 so about 60 cents.

Re: SLA printed drones & CIB

Nice, but i don't see the point of printing drones (maybe because I am a veteran collector who has 20-ish old gun drones on their small sprues) The CIB is nice, but it maybe miss the "cyclic" without a rotary part. As it stands it is more like a triple barrel shotgun than a minigun. The m...
