Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

My inexperience bit me this game too. Deployment and unit positioning were as much a problem as the enemy. In retrospect, I should have formed a mosh pit in one corner and just lit up a single enemy unit each turn. Is starting with the Pink Horrors a good idea? Also, can characters hang out in the m...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

The Changeling causes all Tzeentch Daemon units less than 9in away to force you to subtract 1 from your to-hit rolls. And bird perverts get +1 to their invulnerable saves on top of that just for being themselves.

It was rough.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Victory again, but it didn't feel like one. I was up against Chaos Daemons; The Changeling, 10 Pink Horrors, 3 Flamers, 3 Screamers and 2 Plague Beasts (plus points for Blue and Brimstone Horrors). I couldn't hit sand falling off a camel, and those saves were impossible to get through. My opponenet ...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

What's a good way to take advantage of the Infiltration deployment rule for Stealth Battlesuits?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

I'm currently fielding six drones, so if I give two to to the Commander and add two fire warriors there are still two drones left.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

So now I'm really interested in how Shield Drones fit in to things. For starters, I'm considering ditching the blob of Gun Drones and just jamming 2x Shield Drones with my Commander, Steath Suits and Pathfinders.

Is this good? Stupid? Why or why not? What did I miss?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

It's super ambiguous for sure. I always check the books before posting, and that one gave me pause even after multiple reads. Maybe 'shoot' and 'attack' and 'weapon' could all be clarified somehow? I'm not a rules scientist.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Right; under the weapon profiles it says that (guntype n) means n attacks. So I used the word attack.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

So there's no official ruling on whether an additional shot means one extra attack in the shooting phase or one extra use of a weapon? That's unfortunate.

Cadre Fireblades buff based on gun type though right, so they can affect other units beyond Fire Warriors?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

I really don't like a lot of the Wargames Exclusive models tbh. Some of the more samurai looking or armoured ones are pretty cool though. I got some heads from Zealot Miniatures that I'm quite pleased with. Anyone have experience converting Daemonette heads around here, or something like that? The p...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

I saw a kit at my LGS yesterday that was a Commander and an Ethereal for the same price as just a Commander, so I was wondering if it was even worth it to field. Same goes for the Start Collecting box being $10US more than a box of Crisis Suits but having a whole unit of Fire Warriors and an Etherea...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Thanks that really takes the edge off. I can get the Start Collecting box set and then just pick up big battlesuits as I feel like building them. I swear I read that Broadsides with missiles, and all the other battlesuits, were really good. What's a good model for Longstrike? Or should I just conver...

Re: 500pt list help

Yep! I'm already thinking about what to get next. And of course I'm going to worry about my 500pt list because it's the whole point of this thread.

Ok so speaking of increased army size, are single Broadsides even viable? Or should I just get a Ghostkeel until I can buy 3 missilesides?

How do the new FAQs impact army building, especially the new Drone rules? (Not-so-disgusting but still resiliant)

Re: 500pt list help

It's the week 2 list subbing quad fusion commander for coldstar, and putting the 2pts onto the anti-flying tech for a stealth unit.

Re: 500pt list help

Is quad fusion good enough for me to ditch my Ion Rifles? I already took the fusion cannon off a stealth suit to afford the new commander.
