Re: Ynnari...

Deepstriking is great vs ynnari, deepstrike a commander behind a unit and pull it back to the other side of the board. I don't think any of our flyers are cost effective options, but if you can make it work go for it. The Sunshark is, since it's a bomber with unlimited ammo for the bombardment. Any...

Re: Ynnari...

Okay the spreading thing seems like a good idea. A Sun shark seems like a good choice since on average it'll kill half of the unit (Assuming you use it against infantry). I'm still hoping that a deep strike will help somewhere along the line.

Ynnari...

Okay, the biggest "That guy" of my local club loves to play Ynnari. I fought him once and was forced to concede after just 1 round. :::( . I still think it's bull that DRONES count for the purposes of their extra turns, but until they fix that I'm stuck without a good way to deal with them...

I suppose you're right. Still, it's good to know I can do it if I really need to.

Re: RAW, Mont'Ka and heavy weapons.

Your opponent is more likely to waste firepower on small squads than they are on large squads. Always is and always will be. That's why MSU is strong and is used competitively. Anyway, we're now off topic and should bring this back to Mont'ka. Not if they can divide their firepower between differen...

Re: RAW, Mont'Ka and heavy weapons.

While our gun drones (and recently shield drones) are crucial, it makes a huge difference how you organize them. Tactical drone squads, or compiling them via Crisis suits (Especially with a Drone Controller) are how you should organize them if you're expecting that sort of game. Which the Fate of Ko...

Re: RAW, Mont'Ka and heavy weapons.

That's all well and good, but I still feel that you're wrong about him just being a gimmick. I've been able to make great use of him throughout all my 8e games. The problem is you're still thinking of him as a solo melee unit, and not taking advantage of his ability to use Mont'ka twice, the benefit...

Re: RAW, Mont'Ka and heavy weapons.

As I have stated before, Farsight's deepstriking strategies really help if you know how to use him. I'm not sure why you're so angry about my use of him, since he's more than made up his points for me several times over. It might not seem like a good idea to place him near hammerheads from the begin...

Re: RAW, Mont'Ka and heavy weapons.

Only if you're maintaining a static defense line. Sometimes you really need to move about the battlefield. Particularly if your enemy is deep striking behind your lines.

Re: Broadsides in 8e

What he said. Either the battlesuit or the weapon needs a price cut. Preferably both.

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

Solid lists, but I'd need to buy more crisis suits. Keep in mind I'm using what I have (2 of them were originally members of the 8) Though the second one seems to lack a means of getting Farsight where he needs to be.

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

I would like to rectify my mistake: The NL player had the 2 assault squads plus his warlord deepstriking. While the EC player made use of his Noise Marines to take out my fire warriors. They fell to the rough riders but they still got them. The EC player had the cultists, and I think 1 squad of tact...

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

I forgot about the noise marines. But my ally was the one who dealt with them.

As for the Night Lords... they did pull off two deepstrikes with the assault squads. Farsight carved up the first one but the game ended before the second could be killed.

No.... it helps him because he can declare Mont'ka twice in a single battle and thus synergizes well with things like hammerheads or other heavy weapon users that can't take target lock.

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

No I wouldn't call him "Meh". I'd call him "Good" when you take advantage of his double Mont'Ka (especially with things like Hammerheads which can't take Targetlock) or way of the short blade. If all you do with him is deepstrike and chop then I suppose he's "Meh". He's...

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

While I appreciate your advice, and I will admit to several of the mistakes (Not taking a Devilfish, using the Cadre ineffectively and varying my Crisis suit's loadout too much) I want to counter the following: 1.Farsight is most certainly not "Meh" in melee if you're using him correctly. ...

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

Because it was effectively a "No Mercy" type mission, the big problem was that we had a hard time wiping out their squads completely. As such they drew first blood and killed off our squads bit by bit.
