Re: Forgeworld FAQ is up

It's good to be proven wrong on this matter: Kroot stuff will get rules in the future. I hope they get good and balanced rules. Mostly pleased with Tau changes. Some stuff remain, though: - Y'vhara Nova'ing 1 or 2 weapons - High-intensity markerlight is hot garbage - R'varna costing 1 PL less than ...

Re: Tau Take 2nd Place at Wet Coast GT 2017

He split the fusions between his suits? Interesting. I wonder why. My initial instinct would be to focus the fusion, so I can take casualties off the flamers, making the high-output guns harder to reach. yet he chose differently, and it seems to pay off, anyone wants to enlighten me why? Colstar set...

Re: Forgeworld FAQ is up

AND blacklights cost even less than regular markers now. This is incorrect. It’s drone (7) plus ML (3). So they are equal. Yea, forgot FW drones do not have gear included in costs. So... since the shield drone has a 5+ FnP, doesn't that mean that shooting at it directly gives it a 4++ then the 5+++...

Re: GrimDarkMath - Suggestions and requests

Well, more FW units? Hammerheads are a good idea to compare to "GW" hammerheads. A set of toggleable "unit moves", "target in cover", etc modifier would probably take a while to code and properly update the guns to consider (what guns are heavy and what are not, etc)-bu...

Re: Tau Take 2nd Place at Wet Coast GT 2017

Other than the bulk of pathfinders, and the burst cannons on the crisis, nothing really surprises me here. Its the spam of all the things we figured will be our backbone back on day 1. Actually, about the crisis, the site says they had fusions, no crisis. Are we sure about their loadout? (and how ar...

Re: Forgeworld FAQ is up

Ralai's drones got fixed, and he got a photon caster, AND a drone controller, AND blacklights cost even less than regular markers now. Yea, I'm happy with him now. very happy. Even with his somewhat questionable firepower, I can't NOT take him. no need for under-strength shenanigans either. Tigersha...

Re: High potential understrengths?

Bring Crisis Teams with Gun Drones but without Crisis. Now Manta deploy gun drones. Profit. Seriously, don't use the understrength rule... You can only take two gun drones per XV8 suit model though. If you don't have any XV8 suit models then can you really take any gun drones? A sunshark can drop t...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

What if they are +1 toughness then? They have been under siege for a long time, but now that seems very strong. Also Kel'shan has been a Sept before Forgeworld used it I think. The lexcanum says the first lore of it was not a FW book. I don't see ANYONE getting a toughness increase as his tactics.

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

GW likes to keep its content fairly consistent. In AoS it's common to have 4-6 of these "sept" style things in newer books. So if the marines get 8 I could see us getting 4-8. Probably 6 if a good bet. Tau Vior'la Farsight Enclaves Now I think Kel'shan sept has a good shot at getting rule...

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

JSJ does not really fix vehicles, does it? Anyways. Seems like tactics, at least according to ultras, do not effect vehicles to begin with. Anyways, we can expect the tactics to include mostly incomparables, as in things that are not a mathematical difference in power, but instead giving you a new a...

Well, looking at it rationally, we are going to have at least 3 "chapter tactics" T'au Spet. (Pope, shadowsun, longstrike and darkstrider) Vior'la Sept. (Aun'shi) Farsight Enclaves (The man) Forgeworld also has Dal'yth (R'myer) and Ke'lshen (Ralai), but it is unknown if they will be in cod...

Re: GrimDarkMath - Suggestions and requests

Of all things, you chose to make a manta for your list XD Even if you OWN one the model is hardly relevant to the game, and if only taken as "because I can" situations with supersized games, never a serious concern XD Why not pile up the common crisis setups before that? Yaknow, x3 of each...

Re: High potential understrengths?

It should not be considered for serious competitive play. I don't see why not. Unless we start seeing tournament organisers ban it, it's a valid option. The rule literally says that it's for players who don't have enough models. I'm totally willing to displace my blacklight marker drones for the ti...

High potential understrengths?

Greetings all. As you may know, the FAQ gave us the option to go with under-strength units while not paying for missing models, although only one such unit of each type (so not back to the good old monat days) HOWEVER, while recently looking at the FW list trying to make something good come out of i...

Re: Tau 8th ed. mathammer tables

Sometauguy, may I advise that you will change the sorting algorithem so that when looking at a specific targets at range, Null values (things that can't shoot as they lack range) will be at the bottom rather than the top?
