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...

Re: 1.5k pts with what I have for a friendly battle :)

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...

Re: 2000 pts knock out tournament

I would much rather drop an xv9 squad and the riptide for a stormsurge. Also, I'd rather put a shield gen on the 3 FB commander than the multitracker. It's an awful wargear choice on a commander.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I've come to the conclusion marker lights aren't the problem. If pathfinders were not fast attack and were regular troops, we would be way happier. My solution now is to not even look at brigade and patrol detachments. I am using only outrider detachments with 3 pathfinders with a supplement of van...

Re: 2000 point lists - Tournament Lists

Also don't forget, you can choose medium range pulse blast profile under 10". It doesn't say you "have to" choose close range. Caught my opponent off guard when I incinerated a charging one man terminator squad in overwatch, followed by incinerating a commissar in overwatch. I love t...

Re: Anyone tried a Tau close Combat theme list in this edition?

CC weapon was FAQ'ed from "-" to "0" I believe and we can infact use ATS benefits in CC at the current moment. I suspect our codex will change it to shooting attacks only.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Pathfinders always hit on a 3+ when firing Markerlights regardless of any modifiers." They will need to add a special caveat to this simply because of the heavy weapons. I bet it will read something like "Markerlights fired from this unit hit on a 4+ in the shooting phase regardless of mo...

Re: Tactics Against Imperial Guard

Tactics widely depends on your list, your opponents list, the board, and the mission. Yes, certain general things will help like make all their guys dead. :-P Charge their tanks with things like piranhas and devilfish or a deepstriking commander in a pinch. Coldstars and mobile Y'varhas could also t...

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

These all look very solid. Two questions though- first, do you think the Coldstar has enough firepower to be useful in a 500-pt game? I'm not doubting you, I'm actually curious. And second, what is the 7-model Gun Drone squad doing in your 1500-pt list? Coldstar is a stud on capturing objectives an...
