Re: Comparing Mechanized Unit Builds

I presume this is calculated without a drone controller present next to the drones (to lazy to check the math). If you manage to get a DC in the general area of the disembarked drones, while increasing the overall cost of the force, their effectiveness should skyrocket above the Breacher options. St...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

As someone in his 30s that has been playing since 5th edition - I'm having the most fun playing 40k right now than ever. This edition has some issues, but overall the ruleset is the best I've experienced. As for fluff, I'm thinking a lot of people are having a case rose colored glasses/selective mem...

Re: Have you been Overcharging your CIBs correctly?

Excess damage from attacks that cause mortal wounds inflicted upon a unit that you get to allocate spills over. Overcharging ion weapons causes mortal wounds to individual models , is not an attack and you don't get to allocate the wounds. Also each of them only causes one point of damage. There is ...

Re: Shield Drone vs Heavy Bolter Hellfire command

I'll just pop in and say that railgun mortal wounds are triggered by a to-wound roll, not damage roll. But otherwise Panzer is correct. A railgun that rolls a 6 to wound, and then another 6 for the number of mortal wounds, will generate a total of four wounds on the target unit. One with Ap -4 that ...

Re: EWO and Characters

The EWO rule actively bypasses target selection whereas it does not actively bypass range and LoS. It is not an "all or nothing" situation. There is no choice in the targeting; therefore, you are not breaking the rule of CHOOSING TO TARGET a character. [Chosen] is the key word here...ther...

Re: EWO and Characters

We ruled against targeting characters with Intercept-like rules (EWO or Auspex Scan or whatever comes in the future) in our play group. If the attack happens as if it was your shooting phase it has to follow every restriction of the shooting phase. Note that checking ranges and LOS happens at the sa...

Re: Question to the Fight Phase

The linked article has nothing to do with the posed question and if you have a personal belief about how a rule should work, despite the rulebook stating otherwise, I would suggest you start a new thread about it. It doesn't pertain to the OP's question and will only confuse people with less rules k...

Re: Question to the Fight Phase

MNGamer you are not correct about what a successful charge is. For a charge to be successful the following must be true. The first model you move must finish within 1" of an enemy model from one of the target units. No models in the charging unit can move within 1" of the enemy unit that w...

Re: A question about grenades and AP for troops...

EMP grenades in 8th would be really awkward to use if they did exist. You can no longer use grenades in melee and you can only throw one per squad most likely with an 8'' range. Given that you can hurt anything with any weapon, I would rather shoot a vehicle from afar with my Fire warriors (if there...

Re: Making a Brigade

If you really dislike the idea of running Sniper Drones, you can replace them with Heavy Gun Drones - our second cheapest Heavy Support choice. While they are worse than simply more Gun Drones, they're not terrible. With the number of drops a list like this has, I think it's important to talk about ...

Re: Homing beacon question

You can place multiple homing beacons during a single turn, but you can still bring only one unit with Manta strike on the battlefield with a homing beacon. If there are any friendly homing beacons on the battlefield at the end of your Movement phase, one of your <SEPT> units that has been set up in...

Re: SM Reivers Tactica Spotlight

A leaked Reivers datasheet is floating around the internet. They have a terrible max unit size, no deployment options, no Close Combat AP and their overwatch preventing grenades only work on INFANTRY. They kill 2.22 Firewariors in CC. I think it's safe to say that the Tactica Spotlight is glorified ...

Re: An interesting application of Longstrike's hull shape and terrain.

I also only seen this mentioned on the Frontline stream and was confused by it. I cannot find it anywhere in the rules. I'm not arguing that it would be better to work that way, however it makes little sense for me that it works only for woods and ruins or within 3" of Imperial Statuary. Why no...
