Re: Homing beacon question

can someone walk me through the steps i need to take to pull off a manta strike then? With a stealth team and a crisis team of all flamers, say. I assume: at the start of your movement, the stealth team moves up to inside a few inches of the enemy, Crisis suits then drop in, as their movement for th...

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

Ok so... this is confusing as hell. I'm going to list these one at a time first, then explain the problem. 1: charging, roll 2d6 and add them together to get result 2: the faq/errata says "some rules allow you to reroll a dice roll, which means you get to roll some or all of the dice again. If...

Re: Orks vs. Tau 65 PP

Yeah I figured that out a few hours later, we didn't want to halt the shooting phase to figure it out, I was already kind of trigger happy. But yeah, the Mork would have died in the almost exact same fashion, he failed to save so many of the seekers it didn't matter much. The bigger issue for me was...

There's no benefit to the optics bit thats in the Shark/flyer kit, just the option to twin-link the standard missile pod.

Orks vs. Tau 65 PP

65 Power Points of Tau vs Orks! Our first play of 8th, I did some stupid things, we ran out of time and it sorta ended in a draw. But, before that... Tau recon scouted the Ork patrol force to be A Morkanaut A Dakkajet A Warboss A Nob with Waaagh Banner Painboy Weirdboy Full strength Nob Squad, big c...

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

I like the ghostkeel in most respects, but not the accuracy. Especially when it loses a few wounds and starts shooting like an ork! Yeah but https://www.games-workshop.com/resources/catalog/product/600x620/99120113035_TauEmpireGhostkeel03.jpg https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/6/68616/15...

Re: Playing against Grey Knights 1000 pts, please help

Thanks for the suggestions. Using Plasma opened enough points for a Pathfinder or Stealth team. :biggrin: Against marines? Pathfinder team. I LOVE stealth and will try and plug at least 3 into every list I make, but those Markerlights are a force multiplier, and if you're inclined to invest in the ...

Somewhat. Commanders still appear to be the HQ of choice for WAAC.

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

. But you can tell your friend that the Ghostkeels Drones only have a -1 to-hit modifier and once those are gone the Ghostkeel only has his -1 to-hit modifier at >12" left. Why would I want to tell him that? :biggrin: Seriously though, thanks guys. This was my point to him and so hopefully he'...

Re: Warhammer 40K War Zone Damocles Kauyon PDF?

That would be a violation of the rules here. Unfortunately, you will have to figure that one out on your own.

Ebay is moving them for around $40, half what you've found elsewhere. Seeing some that may have sold for under $35 ("best offer accepted")

Re: How to paint panel lines?

I find commercially bought washes and inks to be crap. Particularly the GW ones. I've had great success with oil paint, particularly on larger models, but also on smaller ones. A little oil paint mixed with mineral spirits/white spirits to make a wash, slather it on and let it partially dry. You ca...

Re: How to paint panel lines?

The grooves on infantry are so small that you're best to basecoat them dark, then be careful not to paint over them again. Multiple thin coats helps a lot here. I've used inkwashes to put it back in, but you could also paint a fine line in the groove too with thinned down dark paint.
