Re: How to user flamer correctly?

One thing to note, when placing a template, you must cover as many models from the target unit as possible. So yes, you could place the templates separately but it shouldn't make much difference.

Re: 1850 Stealth and shrouded Supremacy

If VT on your commander velocity tracker? I've got a feeling, as he has no weapons, that you've put that on him combined with the drone controller to give skyfiring markerlights? That doesn't work I'm afraid, yes they gain the commanders BS, but they don't gain skyfire, so when the snapshots are app...

Re: Farsight Enclaves and Tau Empire, Allied Detachment

Seems so, but I wouldn't really be fussed about it, as the way it stands atm all we need to buy into a full CAD is an ethereal and two individual crisis suits with bonding knives. We are permitted to do this even if the primary faction is either empire or enclaves.

Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

I'm a little surprised I've not seen this mentioned so far (possibly because of the closure of the former thread), but an additional weapon option for the KX-139 has been leaked during the Amsterdam event. It looks like a very high rate of fire weapon and is mounted on the arms instead of the Ion ba...

Re: Hammerhead Conversion help

Oh, I had a different interpretation on this (and jump/jet moves) and have always measured along the diagonal distance, so the 6" across and 6" up would be more like 8.5". Am I wrong in this or is it another rules grey area that is badly worded?

Gunline challenge list for a FLGS

An owner of a local store has approached me with a listbuilding challenge, basically asking me to make something hard to defeat that he can use as the store army and make a wall of fame. There was a bit of back and forth and our criteria was eventually narrowed down to: between 1000 and 1500 points,...

Re: Inspiration needed: Buff Commander

Though I didn't do it myself, as my Raven has a flamer in one hand and a lens upon the other, I've always wanted to have a play with some translucent plastic and make some virtual visualization like seen on hackers from Infinity http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y20/margeus/Infinity/inter.jpg .

Re: Culexus assassin tactica

As far as modelling considerations go, I am currently making an assassin army themed up as a spyrer gang fully upgraded and brought into the fold of the tau empire. There are some slightly odd fits but the malcadon is going to be eversor, the yeld a vindicare, the jakarra as the callidus and finally...

Re: Onager gauntlet? Kauai?

Indeed, a piston or rail weapon is how I've always imagined it also. I've not much in the way of actual models to show you, but a source of images that could inspire you might be armoured core. They had a few weapons called 'parry blades' which might give you some images to work from.

Re: Is the Buff Commander expendable?

As Tem says we have discussed this on ATT and RAW it looks correct. It is harder to know if it is an accidental loophole or if they intended FSE to still run the classic Farsight Bomb with all the toys. I do not use it because it might be considered loophole abuse by others. I suspect that most in ...

Re: Is the Buff Commander expendable?

If you can work with Farsight as your commander you could open up a similar team to your buffmander and 3 deathrain. As written, in a enclaves army, only characters are restricted to taking FSE signiture systems instead of Empire systems. So a farsight bodyguard unit of 4 suits could do 3 deathrains...

Re: I need the Greater Good to help me with a "modeling" project

I've used 4shared for several things, they don't use a download client and I've never seen an .exe come out of it, you were wise to cancel that download imo.

Re: what does the future hold? your thoughts please.

Oooh. Pardon me, was getting my info from 3++. According to them it seems that the bonus is still there. But as you say, if it turns out it isn't or gets FAQed or whatever taking the decision to jink seems a total no-brainer.

Re: what does the future hold? your thoughts please.

I'm starting to think that we might shortly have one of the best transports in the game. With the just the basic jink save combined with our disruption pods making a very respectable cover save, we don't really compare to the wave serpent. But then again serpents are paying for thier heavy weapons t...

Re: what does the future hold? your thoughts please.

There is quite a lot of information dropping on 3++ right now, it seems that Kirby has the rulebook and is going through it noting the changes.

Re: Small list challenge.

I'm going to add one of my more promising lists, showing what I am thinking makes a functional list including these units, at the moment it comes in at about 1000 but I feel like I am sorely missing a few extra bodies, anti air, and vehicle saturation.

Re: Placeholder units and the Enclaves

Yea I also have to agree with Boomwolf and Kael'yn completely, I play enclaves the same way (which I suspect is why it took me so long to realize this) and the only time I would contemplate bringing this placeholder was if I had 20ish points I absolutely could not fill with upgrades and a spare troo...

Re: Small list challenge.

Ah well I'll apologise if it comes out that way. I'm not looking for someone to point everything up for me, just some ideas to marry some units that seem to me discordant and these point levels. Perhaps then, as I have made multiple lists for this, I'll go on to say that the problem unit I'm having ...
