Re: Lostroninsoul's 2k Cadre

By the way, what targets did the Plasma Rifle XV8s engage, and how did you use them? Risky deep strike at 12" range or more skirmish tactics? They are best used as skirmish tactics. Mostly 8 shots. The game I intentionally 'threw away' with poor deployments, they last two turns (generally othe...

Re: Ranged Superiority: How much would you be willing to pay?

I just recently changed my list to be more Range Superior and I like it a lot. I dealt 17 (19 mortal wounds if you count Longstrike getting a 6 on a wound roll) wounds to a Stompa today and removed it on turn one. Resulting into table in the player by Turn 4

Re: Farsight list- highly aggressive

If your going to run farsight, consider taking a homing beacon with the stealth team. It will make charging easier[or just drop directly into CC without charging, if avoiding flamers on vehicles ]

P.s. crisis suits can carry 3 weapons, are yours intentionally under equipped?

Re: Farsight: Shadow of the Manta

I been honestly considering the stats of the commander farsight model with the homing beacon in my list. I find it ironic you are using homing beacon, have your screen name, and not including farsight in your list. Against your MEQ problems , if you homing beacon him in, he does about .92 unsaved wo...

Re: Revisiting CIB Builds (Again!)

As a general CIB related question...anyone else not getting a ton of mileage out of their CIBs? Don't get me wrong, they are the best gun we have for a BS 4+ unit, but I just find myself rolling a TON of dice only to get 1 or 2 wounds per volley against MEQ. They remove cheap T3 GEQ in droves, but ...

Re: Lostroninsoul's 2k Cadre

Have you actually used it in games yet? Edit: Also, how does Exemplar of Kauyon help Longstrike? Isn't he always going to be on the move? I played one game game and won with a similar 2k list (it had a team of pathfinders as the only difference) and it tabled the mechanized Orc list by turn 3-4 abo...
