Re: Fast dice rolls and the Reroll stratagem (8th edition)

Well, if you'd wanna do it with the same result as if you were slow rolling, there are some options to do that without rolling each dice individually and keep mostly the same result. ie. fast roll, but keep one dice in different color as "the last dice", reroll only the colored dice. Or ro...

Size is mostly the same. I can't tell/show you quality yet, I will receive my own on 3rd of October if their estimate is correct.

Re: Fast dice rolls and the Reroll stratagem (8th edition)

From rules perspective, this is 100% legal, since the fast rolling just specifies that WS/BS, S, AP, D(this would probably also include special effects like railgun) have to match. I'm fine with it working that way because the alternative would slow down the game a lot, as you'd have to choose betwe...

3D print... OOP models, Enclave fan-fiction modifications

A common thread for all my Tau mods... Orca https://i.imgur.com/d0cx9V9.jpg Intended to be mostly FDM printed, since having it printed professionally would cost about 2500$.

Re: Multiple targeting and overcharge

If a model has several

Re: Old XV88 Kit

I've heard stealthsuits come with 32mm bases(same diameter as drone flying base but the normal black style), but I can't confirm it since the sprue is the same and I didn't buy any new ones since the whole rebasing w/ new base sizes begun.

Re: Old XV88 Kit

Ye, the base size isn't "right" for crisis either, before the new kits were released, both crisis and broadsides had 40mm(39mm irl) bases, now crisis are on 50mm(49mm irl) and broadsides are on 60mm(64mm irl). Also, the new crisis suits are a steal if you buy them in "Start Collecting...

Re: Shield Generators and Tanking wounds with a Crisis team

I chose to allocate the wounds to the Shas'vre with the shield gen to get his invulnerable save. No damage went through that, but if they had, they would have taken out the already wounded suit. You can't allocate the wound to an unwounded model if there's a wounded model in the target unit and fro...

Re: Overcharging + Modifiers

You always have a chance to explode when you overcharge a weapon. A dice can't be modified below 1 with positive to-hit modifier. Not with a +1 modifier. Another explanation would be that overcharged weapons do not fire instantly, they take a second or two to get into overcharged state, and the lon...

Hmm, I'm still in the mindset of not giving a damn about colors or "sept marking" (as if we had decals for more than one sept, pff...), not sure why I should even care, unless they retcon this, "sept colors" are made to serve as a cammo in their home environment, insisting on hav...

Re: Longstrike + Crisis Bodyguards + shield drones/tactical drones

I'd say it's clearly a "no" after FAQ rewording which says something like "... if an enemy attack successfully wounds", the wound on bodyguards is technically caused by your own ability, not by enemy attack. Also I'm 90% sure this isn't intended. But sure, you could say it's a ca...

Yea... whilst being persuasive as it's "official FAQ-ish", the above Q/A does not necessarily help, as it's unclear to what point does the "as if it was shooting phase" phrase apply. If the EWO worked just like interceptor in 7th (with the same "as if it was..."), where...

Re: EWO and Characters

Yes, you are, but you are only able to chose a unit from these fulfilling the criterias. If a Death Company arrives together with a Chaplain and some Terminators you gotta chose. But the Chaplain is not targetable due to regular shooting rules. Even if he arrives alone. The only choice you're makin...

Re: EWO and Characters

I'd say you still need LoS and range, but can shoot characters. The argument for it would be that you need range and LoS "as if it was shooting phase", but the EWO would override the shooting sequence, you're skipping "selecting targets" step, that is done already by the EWO. (Th...
