Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Allowing the hammerhead to fire twice is all well and nice
How does that ballance internally with Railsides and gunforts though?

Re: Going against the nids

When i decided to play 40k and not just because my friends handed me a fist full of proxies and told me to Roll. I had tried dwarves in fantasy and did not have much an interest in the harsh i go you go or clear papper scissors that the skaven and orcs presented. One day i seen a picture in random w...

Re: getting to five markerlights

I read up a list on dakka dakka some guy was raving about three gunrigs with marksmen and pathfinders with rifles n stuff. though i have many differences his list set the tone for what My current list looks like. Even though deep down i really want to play a riptide coldstar pirhanna and vespid type...

Re: getting to five markerlights

I would also say a 9 man in a drone port with a markerlight character is Acceptible. Now im assuming darkstriders or fireblades ablilties don't work inside?

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I agree with panzers idea
Its
Just like my railgun hammerhead idea
Lets make our army the great white sharks of mortal wound spam :)

Ahem
Thats heavy sniper mortal wounds son.
Now go put gilliman away

though that would require sniper markerlights possibly on the skyray itself, but im ok with that

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Seen on dakka a guy making a case for the tidewall gunfort. If our hammerheads get double shots at half speed. Kinda seems like that might do in the Gunfort. And the broadsides would need a decent reduction in cost to make it compete internally. Especially considering the ballistic skills. I say mak...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

Especially against say necrons where elimination of units wholesale is key.

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

I agree with the above feedback. But if you are going to mix. Mix the unit not the modles. When you take hits on turn three and you drones are gone as well as the light infantry near you. Lose the two flamer and drone controller suit and keep all the cibs or fusions in action.

Re: Hammerhead loadouts

But what else are your markerlights doing? You do not need markerlights for the main guns of the tanks, Or even sms with them ignoring cover anyways and the great ballisti skills Add in a fusion commander. Again he don't really need marker-lights, one turn of kayun will eliminate the need for them a...

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

Fabtastic. Right infront was more to communicate what i wanted to know. The actual application of the deployment would be more practical like deciding i want a certain objective or terrain piece. I guess i was not concerned about enemy infiltration during my deployment stratagy and i should be. Last...

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

Question that i should already know the answer to. When deploying stealth suits or ghost keels. At any point but lets say i deploy first. Can i deploy within an inch of the opponents deployment zone since there is no units to be within 12" of? And then can an opponent just deploy right infront ...

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

I like the options of multi trackers and targetlocks not having to reley on markerlights but after a few games ill put my vote with; if you Spam anything. Spam ML's and use those slots on suits for hitting even harder or more often. ATS, EWO/VT. The keels should easily be able to get in range with s...

Re: Stealth suit unit size-3 or 6?

When using the homing beacon do you advance first? Or just normal movement and if so does anyone feel its worthwhile using shadowsun to montka and possibly using a CP to get them manta strikers as deep in there as possible. Ive found that i want within 9" but as much as i thought i wanted to ge...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

There was plenty of terrain and i already had most my army moving. I kept the tanks at full speed most of the game as well. Getting most of them into cover from most of my opponents army while hammering a flank with the stealths and manta strikers then going montka and switching flanks and rotating ...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

If even one survives if it assaults it has moved up the board and is contesting space.Which is limited on a 4x6. Forces the opponent to make choices. In chess thats two important things. Momentum and board control. A third is time if a single kroot is somehow still in combat somewhere turn two or th...

Re: Crisis and Stealth Suit Loadouts

I found them to be a smite magnet. well an everything magnet really. Ats and drone controller for me or vanilla and just more.
Anyways. If you to protect other things from smite adding shield gens mighthave the stealths take some of the heat off of ur other units. Being in their face and all that.
