Re: Charging, faq, errata, and command point reroll conflict.

Sounds like we need an faq for the faq, really.

Re: Charging, faq, errata, and command point reroll conflict.

I suspect that the strategism is intended to abide by the faq. See the Eldar Farseer's ability to reroll for its psyker stuff for an example of a rule that clearly states you may reroll one or both dice.

Re: Photon Grenades -- What's the Point?

I mean, it could be done in 7th and prior, too. In 6th I had a lone survivor of a crisis team charge into a unit of the daemon flamer dudes (crazy, I know) because they'd been mulching my infantry. I'd decided I had enough of that. That lone crisis suit bogged down the unit for at least two turns. M...

Re: Redemptor Dreadnougt... WTF?

Honestly, you'll almost never need a range greater than 36" so I wouldn't really consider that a thing the riptide has over the redemptor. While the invulnerable and the fly key word are nice, they are not worth paying on the order of double the price of a dread. I'd also point out that those a...

Re: Redemptor Dreadnougt... WTF?

The riptide is just horrendously overpriced and under gunned this edition. It was never all -that- effective without support, anyway, honestly. Then they made it worse, I guess. I'm sure the codex will adjust that.

Re: Photon Grenades -- What's the Point?

I play against necrons often enough at my store. While they can melee, they're not super threatening in melee. Nowhere near as threatening as they are in the shoot in phase, anyway. So, if I jump a unit of breachers right in front of them, paste a huge number of them but leave some standing, I reall...

Re: What happens to the attached gun drones if a devilfish dies?

Negative. The explosion only affects those on the table at the time. They are not on the table until afterwards, as per the faq.

Re: New Hammerhead for Ol' Longstrike (WIP)

That's a pretty great way of making him stand out! Would work well if you wanted him to be inside, too.I can't bring myself to have the tank commander exposed.

Great paint work, too!

Re: The run to 8th edition

Off topic, I know, but here is some good coverage of Warhammer Fest. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/05/27/warhammer-fest-live-blog/ It does have a lot of the 8th edition pages on it, and what looks like an interesting new Crisis alongside the Y'vahra, as well as the two new Tiger Sharks. ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Drones are described as having squirrel equivelant intelligence independently. Networked together, they get much, much smarter. Drones are also described as being programmed to sacrifice themselves to protect the Tau soldiers. The Ghostkeel AI you describe is on a whole other level, borderline senti...

Re: The run to 8th edition

This assumes Markerlights stay the same. There's a lot of assumptions going on all over the place. We really can't assume ANYTHING except what has actually specifically been revealed. Anything else is not but conjecture.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Considering that he was effectively brought back to life with the help of the Eldar, it makes sense. I suspect that he understands that Chaos is by far the greater threat now. A unified Imperium needs to happen before they can return their eye to conquest. If ever they do. Also, this would explain t...

But they don't even jump, do they? They just walk. I see no reference to jet packs at all.

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Don't forget that Photo-Visors don't work if the user moved. Be sure he's not subtracting from your cover if he's moved. That said, we're pathfinders. We're a scout force, not a front line fighter. Seems to me that we'll have to be sneaky about how we play. Lots of hiding and overwatch to set up amb...

Re: [WIP] Sa'Cea Recon Cadre

The shooting bit about hiding is under an image break. It was kinda jarring my first time reading through. It's there, though.

Re: [WIP] Sa'Cea Recon Cadre

Oh, I know it's practical. It's just a fun thought experiment. ALSO! I don't know if anyone's already brought this up, but could we not Hide and use our Markerlight at the same time? The only requirement seems to be that you can't Move or Charge and that if you shoot, you are no longer hidden. Marke...
