Re: Forgeworld Rules Index outdated (or am I wrong?)

About that... are the forgeworld units alliwed to play at matched play or in such tournaments? Or the opponent has to agreed first?? Totally free to use in most formats of tournaments. Many of them if they have restrictions will state "nothing over PL 18" or some arbitrary number and not ...

Re: 1,000pt vs SM Ironhands

So it sounds like CIB'S are great counters to termies and dreadnaughts. Are they superior to Fusion Blasters in this case? Fusion blasters are great but them being one shot only is really the problem. I think my CIB's do great work against everything and that stands out a LOT in 8th. Fusions are gr...

Re: new battleforce sets

I'm actually super excited for this box since I want more of literally everything in the box, even the drones though I have a hundred of them. Ghostkeel is a cool looking model and is SOOO close to being good that I feel like either CA or the dex will push it into competitive, or so I hope. I have o...

Re: 1000 points, first list for 8th

Homing beacon is exactly that, no restriction on where you land within the boundaries of the beacon itself allowing your flamer suits or in your case the fusion commander to get within 9" and get two dice picking the highest for damage. We are pretty much the only army in the game that gets aro...

Re: Cadre Fireblade conversion - could use some help :)

Chop the left arm just below the elbow before the armlet and rotate it about 90* and cut off the scanner. Try to keep something resembling a finger or just make it a fist. Not sure what you're talking about with the robe since it's not clearly photographed in the picture but if it bothers you, try a...

Re: 1,000pt vs SM Ironhands

No good reason outside of not using CIB's before and wanted to play with them. As for commanders it never occurred to me to use them as proxies. Interesting thought. They are great. Do you need to wound t4 on two's? Overcharge them and have a markerlight on the target. Do you need to kill multiple ...

Re: 1000 points, first list for 8th

thanks for the feedback, I wasn't sure about drones so I appreciate the advice. I have rewritten the list to try and take your recommendations onboard: Vanguard detachment commander, 4x fusion blasters, 2x shield drones 3 stealth suits, drone controller , 6 marker drones 3 crisis suits, 6x CIB, 3 g...

Re: 1,000pt vs SM Ironhands

Hi all, Been playing a friend who runs Iron Hands with all heavy infantry. Typically consists of Termies, dreadnoughts, techmarine HQ and razorbacks loaded with combat squads. Up until recently i havent had the firepower to crack their 2+ or deal enough wounds to take down a dread. This is sort of ...

Hey guys Old Tau player from 7th, although I haven't played T'au for over a year. I have drawn up a list for 1000 points and would appreciate some feedback, I have done some reading up on what people regard as effective units and hope that my list looks decent.

Re: Spin the Bottle

Good point, cheers. I’ve got a 6x4 table that splits in half so there will be 2games happening simultaneously on the 2 halves. I’ll post a short bat rep with the outcome :D 3x2 will be VERY small. Keep in mind your pathfinders will want to be at max range BUT if you have rail rifles, you may want t...

Re: Dark strider and breachers

My first few games of 8th had lots and lots of firewarriors with darkstrider and a fireblade holding down the center of the field. If they got charged, EVERYONE could pull out and fire. I had several units clumped together so I frequently had multiple sqauds tied up but only 1 or 2 with any actual c...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

If this works then you could technically get the buff in any of our tidewalls. I'm curious to hear what other people think because I say it does work but that may or may not be correct.

Re: 500/1000/1500pts Escalation Tournament on 11/11/17

Sounds like a good showing- I might be pessimistic, but I don't think really any Index army has a chance against an optimized AM army like that. Otherwise, great job! How did the mechanized Drones work out? Drones didn't do anything against the bullgryn and died in the ensuing combat to some degree...

Re: 500/1000/1500pts Escalation Tournament on 11/11/17

So after playing these lists on Saturday I have a few pointers. 500 point list was ok but had a few issues dealing with a 3++ on a venerable dreadnought. Coldstar was great at grabbing objectives but my opponent got super SUPER lucky with saves and saved 20+ 3++ saves roughly in a row leaving him wi...

That's what I came up with. I'm still a new person and this will be my first battle with actual objectives other than "destroy your opoonent". This is mostly just all the models I have at the moment but any tweeks you can suggest are very much welcome. I'll be playing against Space Marine...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

It didn't exactly make it's point cost back, because it drew most of the enemy fire causing me to lose it turn 2 and I had poor target priority choices. It is a BEAST though, and would be a MAJOR threat once given appropriate drone support. I'm thinking FireWarriors with Shield Drones for turn 1 pr...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

So, I acquired a Y'Vahra over a month ago and had my first chance to try it out this week. I was playing PL so I didn't bring the drone protection that it would normally need to fulfill it's full potential. However, I wanted to be able to reach out and touch things with it first turn. The Y'Vahra h...
