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...

Re: Tank Shock against Stormsurge

Did you take in effect that an immobilize result stops the tank shock? AP value increase the roll on the table? I'm no math hammer expert, but 1/3 chance you die looks wrong. I did indeed. 1/6 chance of death period 2/3 chance on the rest that you'll fail to kill it with a lucky 6 (rolling a 2-5 on...

Re: Tank Shock against Stormsurge

Keep in mind that space marine vehicles from the armoured task force ignore Crew Stunned. And the Land Raider Spearhead ignores everything except an Explodes! result. You'll usually see these formations in the Iron Hands detachment but they could be anywhere. Let's assume you are using the Pulse Bla...

Re: Tau FAQ (offial first draft)

One of the big ones that I noticed was the clarification on the M3S and CCN. They specifically say that it will work during the Intercept Phase. The applications aren't huge since most players these days are getting their intercept defense from Riptides+Stormsurge+Drone Net. However, crisis teams ar...

Re: Winning Without the Riptide Wing

I am going to play the devils advocate for a minute: -If you spam Kroot you can lose a LOT of kroot to ripple-firing SMS from the Riptides. One Riptide, without the +1 BS formation bonus, will kill 5 kroot with ripple-firing SMS. If he is using the hailfire ability that is 10 Kroot. And that doesn't...

Winning Without the Riptide Wing

I confess, immediately, that I used a Riptide Wing in my FLGS' last tournament. I told myself, "Self, I think we need to win. So let's bring the cheesiest stuff we can think of." I brought the wing, a Stormsurge, an Y'vahra, some markerlights to support them, and a Culexus Assassin. I won ...

Re: Miond's experimentals (Quad-ion and pulsebomb turrets added)

That piranha conversion is top notch. I like the overall flyer conversion but I think that I'll have to agree with Panzer. The quad turret on front looks good, but it makes the back look a bit weird and unbalanced by comparison. Having such a large targeting array on the back seems to serve no purpo...
