Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

{Off topic, but wish granted}
Y'vraha versus T7/+3 save (no movement, no support systems):

IDC (standard): 0.833
IDC (Nova): 5.000
Flechette pod:0.194
Flamer(standard):4.666
Flamer(Nova): 7.000

I suspect an ats would double the flamer weapon damage. But it does have the 8" range limitation

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Your point of view is perfectly valid. Yes, Fb commanders are still a little more efficient than the crisis FB team. I factored in the reroll of 1's. That's where the team does ~14.51 damage comes from. The math for rerolling 1's stems from (successful hit chance without reroll)+(successful hit chan...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

As Arka and Panzer have mentioned, gun drones and fire warriors do strength 5 shooting much better. XV-8s suffer from their BS so most weapons are better on a Commander, hence the Flamer loadout. To equal the same damage that the crisis team produces with strength 5 shots on a t7 /+3 save target, y...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I think one of the main things with these discussions is that you can't look at one unit in a vacuum, especially the XV-8s. I look at them as a unit to cover your weaknesses in list design. One weakness is some lists is not having maximum, commanders (my issue). I also don't feel like investing in ...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I personally am reconsidering my 1-2 crisis teams and only considering them as fusion blasters. It's a hefty investment, but the cp stratagem makes a single team playable. A second team would optimally be dropped on a different turn due to cp stratagem being a once a turn effect. But it's still swee...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I've discovered something interesting. For a while now people wanted crisis suits to be good at something. Crisis suits can be great tank killers, if they lean on the new markerlight stratagem. They are only slighly less efficient than Fusion Blaster commanders. Against a T7/+3 save (generally 13 wo...

Re: Optimal hammerhead loadouts?

Rail gun is good on longstrike due to the tank ace ability helps increase mortal wound chance. Ion cannon is better on normal hammerheads because more shots= less variance and more damage consistently. Longstrike is good with SMS due to tank ace ace ability helping it damage vechiles. Gundrones can ...

Re: Longstrike with closed hatch?

If you want to get super creative. You can probably find some clear concave shaped plastic and cut into the front part of the tank and make a airplane-cockpit-like structure for conversion(see dancinghobo longstrike, cut into the area painted red in the hammerhead's front of the tank.) You than shou...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Looks like a bizarre event! Should be fun. Anyway, two Stormsurges will cause a lot of damage, but without Shield Generators I'm afraid they'll take a lot of damage. And also, definitely fill all of the Support System hardpoints on the Stormsurge- when you're paying ~400 points for a behemoth like ...

Re: 4 FB or 3 FB and Multi-tracker

Another difference is 3 shots are more likely to do less damage at things with invulnerable saves. Add in the option for your opponent to use a command reroll if the invulnerable shield is high, can make the multitracker even worse than on paper.
