Re: Monthly 500pt competition list tweak request

There are plenty of marine players. The 1st time there were 2 repulsor tank armies, which I tabled both times. Chaos in any form is what poses the real problems. THe other fun part is we all know how to get around stop overwatch for charging within the rules and as such overwatch rarely happens unl...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

I really hope they don't 'fix' our issues with stratagems. I don't like stratagems in general (I think they lead to too many 'Gotcha!' moments because I can't memorise 10+ stratagems for each codex). I'd rather have the guns be good than have to spend some obscure resource (albeit with a points dro...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

My biggest gripe about these units is that they are going to be our backfield line, big, heavy hitting, single or double shot railguns. ROF isn't our friend and we are going to pay a lot for the chassis if we want to spam them. I think this will be the edition of the ion for us. Our Ion is going to ...

Re: Monthly 500pt competition list tweak request

Looks solid for 500 points. Is this limited to patrol detachment or can we squeeze a battalion into it? I'd go to 3 5 man firewarrior squads with 3 ML and drop the pathfinders for a fireblade. Gets you an extra 3 CP and hides your lights which is a win/win in my book.

Yeah, I thought this was a GW paint job. Extremely good job I'd say.

Re: Flamers and overwatch- not actually that useful?

I'm talking most deepstriking things because that's REALLY where charges come from. If you're being charged from a threat, like a REAL threat, not gaunts or boyz, you're likely getting it from DS so that's what I assumed for starting with 9".

Re: Warhammer Community match

We can definitely compete with Custards but you really need to have lots of multi wound things to do it, IE commanders with Ion and fusions. You're talking about D3 and D6 damage weapons right? How was your experience with D3 damage weapons? I've found them to be powerful but unreliable- rolling a ...

Re: Flamers and overwatch- not actually that useful?

9" charge is like 27.77%, 10" is 16.66%, 11" is 8.33%, and 12" is 2.77%. Armies that can reroll charges like orcs still have a 49% or something to charge at 9" which isn't great so still shoot them with other stuff and make them feel bad.

Re: Warhammer Community match

Played against a Custards player who was pretty good with a very strong list over the weekend at GCGT and would have won if I hadn't been told the entire time in 8th that a squad can't hold multiple objectives. I was proven otherwise at the very end of our game by my opponent when I was focused on c...

Re: 2000Pt Stealth and Fusion Cadre

Fireblade has zero purpose hiding with the strike team in the backfield. Waste of points IMO. Extra stealth suit with ATS if you're so inclined.

Re: Early warning override use against Reserve models.

As for the drop pod, I would argue that as it specifies that the model can perform drop pod assault, And the unit is just happening to disembark, it would only hit the drop pod. And I would argue that within the rules of the drop pod states that the unit MUST immediately disembark just like in 7th ...

Re: 1100 point Tournament List, Need help!

Usually TO's look at anything with "Commander" in the title as one entry, annoyingly. If not, I suggest 2 QFC's and 2 coldstars with ats and sg. If not, just the 2 QFC's. I'd run a fish and breachers and a fish and gun drones with a fireblade to eat up points. This combo should mulch troop...
