Re: Optimised Stealth Cadre Tactics

So I've been running OSC a lot. I'll start off by saying, a Maxed out formation is super mean in Apoc. The heavy fire power is often from long range, and so you get your cover save against that. Then you can make the really powerful shots snap fire, and many of the S10 or D weapons are blast and can...

Re: Most survivable enemies encountered?

Let's see 2++ reroll deamons, great unclean one, flying nurgle princes. Iron hands chapter master on bike with command squad. 2+, 3++, 4+fnp and iwnd. Necron chariot lord is a pain. The trans ctan is sooo strong too. The heldrake is probably the most durable flier, and chaos lords with good boons an...

Re: Advise from any Tyranid players?

Tyranids were/are my first/main army. Most has already been mentioned, you want to go shooting over cc on most options. The important change for the new codex is how scything talons work, where having one set do almost nothing for you. So either go full shooting or full cc, don't mix. Exception bein...

Re: Deep striking Farsight with O'Vesa and Commander

If you wanted to, you could atttach ovesa, farsight, and the commander all to a riptide., for one big hard to move unit.

I personally like to keep o vesa with a crisis squad, giving them T6 and a 2+ save upfront to protect the troops.

Re: Question on nightfighting and blacksun filters

Reading from my rule book, for night fighting it says cannot target a unit outside 36. Doesn't say out of los, but cannot be targeted. So by that you can not fire the missiles as they count as being fired by the skyray now instead. This also prevents barrage from firing beyond 36 as well. You could ...

Re: Feel No Pain and Force Weapons

Both Force weapons and FNP trigger on an unsaved wound. So after you fail an armorsave/invulnerable, you then determine if the Force weapon goes off. You could technically roll for FNP if you want, but you'd then have to still resolve Force weapon, such that if it causes ID, it will ignore FNP and m...

Re: The Deathstar that knows no fear, what does a commander do?

I just recently played a similar list, and I found that marker lights to ignore cover and riptides overcharged ion accelerator make quick work I the council. This is exactly what I was going to suggest. If you can get two sources and split them, the baron can't be in front of both. The S8 means he ...

Re: 2000pts. Gunline. Counter on fast SM Iron Hands

I'm just going to throw out some ideas. If you are able to get more kroot, then you can simply infiltrate/deploy them in front of your army forcing the droppod squad further away from the valuable units. If you're still having trouble with the landraider, I haven't' tried in 6th but Fusion piranhas ...

Re: Obscured and jink saves of Skimmers are cumulative.

If you get your hammer head "hull down" as you described it, it is the third example that you quoted from the BRB on tanks. So you would get a +1 to cover, which would stack with d-pods for a +2 cover save. so with Jink makes it a 3+. But note that the +1 from hull down is directional only...

Re: 1850 Farsight Enclave Auto-Sniper

I've been using one squad behind an ADL for some time now, I love them. Instead of running multiples, I add a PEN commander when needed, rerolling to wound against MC or getting more rends against AV is sweet. They are also a great place to keep the Ethereals. Maybe something that wouldn't come up t...

Re: Nid Hunting - plasma VS missile pods

Well Nids are my primary, so lets see if I can help. Tervigons only have a 3+ armor, the only model that can upgrade that is the Tyrant, but it competes with wings. The tervigons can have a book power that gives FNP, or they can roll on biomancy to get Endurance which gives FNP and IWND. From what y...

But they only get the jink in hover mode if they moved, so not if you didn't go first. But any natural cover from the walls or models still works and stacks nicely.

I am curious on if a squadron would work. Hmm

Re: Necrons - How to stop the grey menace?

As to a question above, I'm pretty sure the Markerlight rule specifically states for wounds, and so cannot be used against vehicles. As for beating necrons, many have already said focus fire is key. Keep shooting at a target till it is dead, or they will be back. (see what I did there) Against scara...

Re: [Article submission] DX-6 'Remora' Drone Fighter primer

I'd say for general tactics they parallel piranhas a lot. You can basically compare two piranhas to one remora, cost is similar, remora has less damage output but greater survivability, and you win out with more flexibility I feel. You gain increased maneuverability, sky fire options, seeker missile...

Re: Tau Air Support, defensive and offensive.

In that case I would go with the sun shark bomber. It gives you a wide range of flexibility. It doesn't really do any one roll great, but does a lot of different well enough. It sounds like you have things generally covered and just want to add another dimension to your army's capabilities.

Re: Tau Air Support, defensive and offensive.

I just wanted to chime in a few ideas. I almost always run at least one if not two sky rays. Though I might replace one with some broadsides. Sky rays can basically take out any flier out there, and then give marker light support, which basically gives sky fire to any other unit. Other options are r...

Re: ShadowShrike, and the new Marine rumors

I was wondering if this will see a greater use of Darkstrider. His wargear will allow S8 weapons to cause instant death.

Except he only affects the squad he is in, and can only join FW or pathfinders, neither of which have access to S8 weapons.

They are the Center of my army, I deploy them aggressively with the ADL. The Marksman mans the quadgun, and the Ethereal tries to stay out of LOS of the enemy. The commande...
