Re: The run to 8th edition

A few things: 1) Charging out of DS is now *possible*. It's still pretty hard. Deploying outside of 9" means a 10" charge. That's pretty unlikely (even with the extra inch). And if Overwatch rules stay as they are, means that the enemy has a pretty blistering amount of firepower to get thr...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Correct, you lose whole models, so you can lose whole battlesuits from the new leadership rules.

Re: 8th Edition: The Eye Opens

More importantly, regarding space being 3D, why is the split such a big deal? Is the Imperium incapable of going outside the galactic plane? It certainly makes travel longer (though not even by that much) and would easily circumvent all the new warp rifts. There seems to be an extreme lack of imagin...

Re: Buffmander Question

Yes, though you are limited to three signature systems if you are taking the Shas'vre upgrade to a standard unit of Crisis suits.

Re: Giving FNP to gunrigs

Turns out this is a great point that may ruin the whole thing. The BRB on p9 doesn't define what a unit is, except that it's a grouping of a number of models. It doesn't say that any grouping is a unit, or define what groupings aren't units. And "Unit Types" on p62 doesn't say that every ...

Re: Complex Mid-Game Decision I'm Unsure About

I'd say shoot the devilfish and charge the guys inside, challenging the ethereal. Not sure of the exact distances, but that seems like it would have done some damage to his ability to pump out shots while at the same time getting that maelstrom point.

Interesting scenario.

Cheers!

Re: Genestealer cults might be a problem.

I have not played against them yet (I will soon!) but I imagine that a lesser known tactic the Tau have will be devastating against the cult. The ingredients are: at least 3x crisis suit with 2 flamers, early warning override 1x promethium pipes This grants you 6 flamer templates that have intercept...
