Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

I only got one chance to do it, but the homing beacons plus triple flamer suits was very effective. 6 flamers dropped 9 necron warriors in one go, and roasted all the scarabs that tried to counterattack. I think it will turn into a great psychological tool, forcing your opponent to charge from 8&quo...

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

Many units have the ability to set up on the battlefield mid-turn... Typically, this happens at the end of the Movement phase, but it can also happen during other phases.Units that are set up in this manner cannot move or Advance further during the turn they arrive-... ...the Y'vahra may be removed...

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the rulebook's section on Reinforcements specifically disallows further movement after arriving from off the board. I had hoped for post-arrival movement as well but it was not in the cards. So the escape thrust is not very attractive given its ability to mov...

Re: Bork'an 4th Escort Cadre [WIP Log]

I am going to make a big picture dump of progress I've made since I last checked in. I'll start with the WIP, and first up is the Stormsurge: http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp307/skymanultra/Conversions/IMG_3806_zpsz0gp9djh.jpg http://i422.photobucket.com/albums/pp307/skymanultra/Conversions/IMG...

Re: TWO 8th Edition Battle Reports For Your Viewing Pleasure

Excellent reports. Thank you very much for sharing! The Tau faction is shaping up to be quite an interesting one in 8th.

I have to point out something though: the Fireblade's Volley Fire ability does not apply to Pulse Blasters.

Re: Bork'an 4th Escort Cadre [WIP Log]

Wow. Thank you for the kind words. I am honored that you feel that way because that was literally my own situation when I came to Tau. I had played Ultramarines in the past, wanted a new faction, researched a bit and found the amazing conversions on ATT. Proud to inspire :::( I hope to put up some o...

Re: Wound Overflow with Savior Protocols

RAW you allocate each wound and roll for saves one at a time. It is mentioned in the side notes of shooting regarding speed dice.
So since the rules assume you are allocating one wound at a time, when you run out of drones and go to the next allocation, it will have to remain on the original unit.

Re: Winning Without the Riptide Wing

It seems all these formations like the Riptide Wing lessen the strategy of the game. IMHO it makes the tactics of the player a moot point. Why do I need to learn the finer points of the game or my army if I can just take 9 Riptides? I hate most of these formations. I prefer CADs. It is more rewardi...

Re: 40k FAQ First Draft

Keep on track people. Whether there is an inconsistency or not, GW is making it very clear that in the Stormsurge's case it dies. People are free to get on the facebook and voice their outrage, but there's no need to bring that over here.

Re: Winning Without the Riptide Wing

It does bring up the important note that the Y'vahra is a pretty fantastic counter to the Stormsurge, and dealing with Stormsurges is definitely a part of winning. Both weapons penetrate the SS base armour and the ion weapon's Blind is absolute murder for the Stormsurge which will fail the blind che...
