Re: Anti infantry 1k pt

Oh! I thought I'd written that in- I don't have the bits for that many flamers or any CIBs whatsoever, hence why one sad boi has burst cannons. Not the best weapon but it puts out lead at 18" reliably at bs4. So, things I have available: Shadowsun 6 old style stealth suits Two etherial A maybe ...

Anti infantry 1k pt

So my friend is bringing a squad of nurgle's friends to the table, and I want to optimise for them. Most of them are poxwalkers, with a few plague marines, a plague surgeon and some kind of very tough warlord with a lot of FnP buffs. As most of the force is going to be slow moving infantry hoards an...

Re: [Review]: Poor quality Shadowsun

Mine's almost fully painted now and she's a beautiful model now the work has gone into her. I just need to hope that the various bits don't snap off any further (my drone antennae for her stuff literally waggle side to side when shaken it's that flimsily cast XD) What colour scheme are you going for...

[Review]: Poor quality Shadowsun

So, I thought I'd post a review of my recent experience building a commander shadowsun so people know what to expect when deciding whether to get one. If this is the wrong board to post in can an admin let me know and shunt it other to the right place please? I'm still learning the ropes here. Whils...

Open topped and buffs, does it work?

Hi, Do buffs work on units embarked on open topped things? Like I fancy putting a fireblade on a drone port for 24bs2+ shots of pulse fire from the drones, then putting a unit of strike team warriors on top for some longer ranged albeit poorer BS pulse fire. But do those warriors still get buffed by...

Re: First 40k army for casual play

Yea for me this looks a but more appropriate. Consider 2 units of 4 Pathfinders instead of 5 and 3 ML drones. Better accuracy and safer for morale. I'm also not entirely sure how useful the special drones are going to be, I don't run them myself, so can't really say. Hopefully one of the more exper...

Re: First 40k army for casual play

Okay, so taking that advice I've managed to tweak it to get exactly 1k points! Here's the update HQ Commander Shadowsun 195 points 2*MV52 drone, 1* MV62 command link drone HQ Darkstrider 45 points (as advised) Elite Ghostkeele battlesuit 184 points ATS, TL, flamers and fusion collider, 2*MV5 stealth...

Re: First 40k army for casual play

Good point, that makes sense about the cannons, I'll bang on some ATS instead. Yeah the fireblade was simply for ML and to bump up the pulse pathfinders in case things for hairy, and I don't have a darkstrider, though as you say proxy could be a good option. I considered maybe keeping an XV8 unit as...

First 40k army for casual play

Hi all, I'm new to the world of 40k so am looking for feedback from more experienced players on my army list. It's just for casual play with friends (they play plague marines and space marines), looking at 1000 point limit. I've picked up some old models from a friend and am looking forward to tryin...

Devil fish help please

Hi, so I just bought a bulk box of ancient tau off my mate (£100 for nearly 2.5k points) on the condition that some of it is"well loved". So I'm working repair jobs on them and most are reasonably okay, nothing a little faff won't fix, or in the case of the crisis suit without a foot, noth...

Re: getting to five markerlights

Is it not worth getting a pair of tetras with the special triple strength marker lights and mobility?

Re: New player- stuck on guardian drones

Thanks for all the help, though some has gone right over my head! What does ++ mean Vs + regarding saves? Secondly that's a good plan to split the unit. I haven't got any idea of rank markings so the only squad leader (shhh I don't speak tau yet) is simply marked by dint of there not being enough h...

New player- Stuck on Guardian Drones

Hi, it's my first time playing 40k apart from a demo game maybe a decade ago and I only have a tiny army right now (start collecting box and a fire blade) and am trying to figure out what to equip them with. Most of them I'm happy with my choices, but I'm baffled by one part of the fire warriors. Wh...
