Re: News - new version of the Barracuda

As a follow up, I wanted to share the results of my efforts to convert a Swiftstrike Railgun for my older model Barracuda. The "pocket" for the main weapon is much shorter on the old model, so I had to shorten the Railgun barrels quite a bit. I decided to use two side-by-side to depict the...

Re: How do you get markerlights ?

Pathfinders and Marker Drones are the best sources of "bulk" Markerlights. Many other individual models carry them as well including Firewarrior Shas'Ui, Stealth Shas'Vre, Cadre Fireblade, Firesight Marksman, Skyray, Tetra, XV84 Battlesuit, Sensor Tower, etc.

Re: Deciding on layouts for Broadside Unit (and choosing commanders)

I've also been working on ways to incorporate HRR Broadsides into my lists. I've got a pair of old models that I love and really enjoy putting them on the table. That said, they're definitely overcosted as others have pointed out. That doesn't mean they're bad, just hard-pressed to kill their points...

Re: News - new version of the Barracuda

Pilky (or anyone else with one of the new kits), can you suggest a starting point for converting the Swiftstrike Railgun? I have the original 'cuda kit and want to retrofit it with the Swiftstrike. I've got a couple of the old metal Broadside Railguns lying around, as well as a Hammerhead Railgun I ...

Re: Looking for Compact Commander Pose Ideas

Back in the days of JSJ, modeling XV8s in "compact" poses gave a pretty distinct in-game advantage. All of my older battlesuits are done this way: https://i.imgur.com/VQnyC25.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Sj7B6mf.jpg https://i.imgur.com/NphoosS.jpg https://i.imgur.com/5pn2y9T.jpg

Re: How to differentiate Drone units among them

I love the idea of magnetizing the aerials. It also saves them from being snapped off by a stray elbow. I've done this with some of the larger vehicle aerials with good success; it might be a challenge on the small drones. But if you could pull it off, you could mix and match aerial quantity to deno...

Re: Gun Drones while attached to a Devilfish

1) BS 4+ 2) no 3) no 4) no When attached they are guns mounted on devilfish and act accordingly Also drones never benefit from pulse accelerator drone Thanks everyone. This would seem to suggest that Gun Drones are a strictly better choice than a pair of Burst Cannons on a Hammerhead. Is there any ...

Re: Themed Orca List

Sounds like a fun game! And that Orca is a mighty presence on the tabletop. Is it the real thing? Yeah! I bought it in 2009 and took a break from the hobby shortly after. It's been half finished in storage since then :-? I started a project log way back then and am hoping to pick up where I left of...

Re: Themed Orca List

https://i.imgur.com/8dIO3Mt.jpg The game happened! I won, but learned later that I misplayed Savior Protocols to my (significant) advantage.

Gun Drones while attached to a Devilfish

A couple questions about Gun Drones attached to a vehicle: 1. Do the Pulse Carbines on a pair of Gun Drones fire at BS 4+ or BS 5+ while attached to a Devilfish? 2. Do they need to fire at the closest target? 3. Do they benefit from a Drone Controller? 4. Do they benefit from a Pulse Accelerator Dro...

Re: Commander w/ Tenacious Survivor and Shield Drones

Can you point me to a FAQ that clarifies this? I'm new to 8th ed, but watched a Tau player at the local gaming store who was playing Savior Protocol differently. He'd roll an armor/invuln save on the Commander. If he failed, he'd pass the wound to a nearby drone using the Savior Protocol rule. He'd ...

Commander w/ Tenacious Survivor and Shield Drones

My Commander with the Warlord Trait "Tenacious Survivor" takes 1 wound from a Pulse Rifle. He rolls a 1 and fails his armor save. He rolls a dice to attempt to shrug off the wound using Tenacious Survivor (6+). He rolls a 5 and fails this roll. A shield drone is nearby. I transfer the woun...

Themed Orca List

A while ago I had an idea to build a 1500(ish) point list for narritive games consisting of nothing but a few infiltrators and an Orca full of dudes. The idea was that a Stealth team would be inserted to locate and identify a high profile target, and then the Orca would be called in to take it out. ...
