Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

I didn't mean that you wouldn't give FB blood but that if your opponent does devote enough shots to killing an easy target, you can counter them because you made it harder to kill those types of units with cover or putting those units in harder to reach spots or using them as bait. With this edition...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Arka personally doesn't like small squads of anything. :P I don't think small squads are that bad since FB is easily countered by playing smart and you can force your opponent to make some pretty bad decisions going for "easy points." Kill points are basically moot since most tournaments f...

Re: 1600 - almoust horde :)

Arka, I believe the OP is trying to keep to the standard 3 detachments where smaller groups of FW's are needed to make the two battalions. One criticism I have for the list is that I generally do not condone the use of two fireblades in a list built like this. There is no need since you aren't runni...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Well what does the tournament orga understand under "tank"? Monsters and tanks became pretty much a wash with 8th so saying "no tanks" while allowing monsters with similar stats would seem a bit weird to me. If such monsters are still allowed, a Quad Fusion Commander would still...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

If nobody is taking tanks, he shouldn't need a 4x fusion commander. I'd probably just roll with a 4xCIB commander and a 3xCIB DC commander, shield drone and marker drone for all three commanders. Clearly the coldstar just leaves his but start him near the others. Could MAYBE do 3x MP DC commander an...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

I'm still going to tell people to try and run my list and see how you can take command of it. QFC 5 breachers 5 pathfinders, 3 w/ rails, 1 reg, 1 'ui devilfish 5 vespid It's a bit gutsy but it has lots of anti MEQ/TEQ and anti tank. The rails will punch down t7 or 8 in a pinch since it gets -4 to a...

Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

fireblade, 5 man drone, and 6 man drone. Drones in a fish with a fireblade seems to be a durable way to get units within 9" while using the fish to charge big units to tie it in CC before unloading the payload. Tactically flexible, durable and points efficient. If you include the 2 drones comin...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

If you want a chance in any game you NEED to have at least one QFC like Arka has added. Plasma is weak on crisis and they are already fairly durable with t5 w3 3+ that you don't need to sacrifice a weapon. If you want them to survive, stick shield drones nearby to eat wounds. I know that the ion rif...

Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

That should be fine for 1500. In my opinion, you should change the marker drones to shield drones on the pathfinder squad since people will be shooting the special drones and will need to get through these first. Plus you can upgrade your two shas'ui on the remaining strike teams and get the 2 light...

Re: 2500 pts double Y'vahra

Nice :) thank u, i like this list . But i have a question, why taking CIBs and not plasma rifle ? On models with toughness up to 5 the plasma rifle is doing more wounds, especially per points. for vehicle with toughness 7 or higher the CIBs become prevlent. Or do they just fit into the structure of...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

In my opinion, drop the second fireblade since they are both hiding in fish anyway and run both fish with strike teams together with the third fish by itself with darkstrider in it. Enhances the punch breachers bring while also allowing them to run from CC IF they manage to survive the assault. Bonu...

Re: Tau forces for campaign

Drop 5 gun drones from the 11 man and add 5 breachers. Done. They also go in the fish with the drones and fireblade.

Re: Competitive 2000 point list

Capturing objectives now is purely a numbers game. Troops now have obsec again so you have to outnumber your opponents on the point OR outnumber their obsec troops with YOUR obsec troops. Granted, the best part of the Coldstar is he goes and grabs objectives that nobody is on because he's stupid fast.

Re: Blood & Glory 2000pt list

Multitracker is useless when you have markerlights, period. And Plasma is fairly weak for crisis suit weapons when considering the alternative options. Lose 6" and have an assault 3 gun or keep the RF1 gun that you can't advance with as effectively? Get three guns for your crisis unless you can...

Re: 1000 pts team tournament

Wasting the slots on the crisis with an ATS on a subpar gun that doesn't need to drop the ap any further. taking a termy from 2+ to 5+ which is what their invuln will be anyway or taking a marine from 3+ to 6+. Don't need to take even more armor away. Go with more shots on our bs4+ models, always.
