Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So... what is the issue with Jump Shoot Jump being gone? JSJ allowed us to move, shoot at something and then jump back either behind cover or out of line of sight. With short range weapons especially, that was a pretty critical thing. Considering the rest, why would a strategem not be reasonable fo...

Optimum Ghostkeel Loadout

So in our local group, we have an escalation campaign going. We're currently in the second month and while the entire thing was intended to be non-competitive, fluffy lists, some people threw that out the window pretty quickly. Based on a power-level game, what would be the optimum load out for a Gh...

Re: [IceFall's 13,000+ points] The 'Margin' Cadre

I think I prefer the Black over the Grey on the Hammerhead, Fish and SkyRay models, but that's just me - they both look amazing and your attention to detail is awesome! That Shadowsun model... Wow. It makes me very glad I never bothered to buy the official model and went with Wargames Exclusive inst...

Re: [IceFall's 13,000+ points] The 'Margin' Cadre

I have to say, your colour scheme (and your painting skills!) is absolutely gorgeous!

I didn't know the sniper team only came in finecast, so that's just pushed me even more to kit bash a few custom models out of some plastic drones and bits I have lying around!

Great job! :biggrin:

Re: GW Live Stream: Markerlight Strategem

Would this be a Stratagem that would be best used off an HQ like Fireblade? Given the 2+ to hit it seems like this is most efficient when used before Drones, Pathfinders, or the rest of the 4+ models. That's my plan for when I first try it - it seems to make a bit more sense I think. That way, you ...

Railside - honestly it was great!

I'm looking forward to using it again - I'm probably going to use a Shield Gen instead of a TL or ATS though, it's going to be a big target and as Steg said, 3ML hits gives the same as a TL anyways.

Re: Uplinked Markerlights and traditionally "overcosted" units

7. Broadside w/ Heavy Rail Rifle, 2x SMS, Target Lock (189) ~~~ 7. 2.67 damage (55.81ppw) ~~~ 7. 4.15 damage (35.90ppw) I'm not saying Broadsides or Ghostkeels are good now (they're not), but easier access to +1BS means that things are looking better and better for them. This is extremely interesti...

Re: Fast dice rolling and saviour Protocol

We've always played it 1 at a time. If I have a group of 3 Crisis and 6 Drones, I'll often pop 2 drones and then make 4 more armour saves for the Crisis suits. If I begin to fail too many armour saves, I can then choose to take the remaining wounds on the drones. If you have Shield Drones in that gr...

Re: New Tigershark Fighter-Bomber up for pre-order

The price really isn't too bad. It's not a whole lot more than GW's prices and you get better, cooler stuff. I've seen a lot of posts online about wacky, warped resin though and it's made me hesitant about the casts. Just to add to this - the price isn't terrible when you consider what you're getti...

Re: Tactics Against Imperial Guard

Yeah you also have to consider the Militarum tempestus get a 1CP stratagem to fire as if they had EWO but with -1 to hit so if using CIB make sure to drop >12" away because even with -1 to hit 4 hot shot volley guns give 16 str4 ap-2 shots, there goes your drone support or 1-2 suits if you did...

Re: Tactics Against Imperial Guard

Anyone got any experience / tips for dealing with the Militarum tempestus? I have no personal experience, but looking at their stats, they're a nasty bunch! I would imagine picking them off from range with a squad or 2 of Fire Warriors would be a safe bet. Manta Striking a team of Crisis Suits woul...

Re: Tactics Against Imperial Guard

This is all great stuff - we can really make this a useful thread for sure! To add some experience from my game last night: 1) Sentinels are tough. They're very resiliant and survivable (3 Crisis Suits with 3 CIBs had a hard time taking them down) ... until a QFC shows up. In that case, they die in ...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

The easy fix there? Give Pathfinders the special rule. Something like: " Scout Party: Pathfinders are masters of scouting ahead and prioritising key threats, painting them for the main force. Pathfinders always hit on a 3+ when firing Markerlights regardless of any modifiers." This could ...

Any ideas what sort of list he is running? AM codex is the most diverse in the game and you could be looking at massed infantry, mechanised, cavalry, monstrous infantry, artillery, Heavy tank list.

Re: getting to five markerlights

You could take a single Cadre Fireblade and one Droneport with four Markerdrones at the cost of 152pts. This would give you 5 BS2 Markerlights a turn, but would require your Markerlight Drones to detach from the protection of the Droneport. It would be a good source of BS2 Markerlights though. I've...

Re: Aerial Cadre - 1500pts

About the ion rifles on the interceptor drones, battlescribe also said two per drone, but when I checked the index it states that each drone only has one ion rifle. Did they FAQ that? Based on that, and on the razorshark getting +1 to hit against ground targets, I felt that the strike fighter was a...

So the last game I played against Chaos was extremely close - I lost purely because I didn't play the objectives. Other than that, the game was close the entire time. This time, I'm hoping I'll get a bit luckier! Here's my current list, I'd really appreciate some suggestions! My opponent will be fie...
