Dominus maniple. Finally a good HQ for Skitarii!!

Ave Omnissiah, fellow magi I wanted to share with you my experiences with the new formation "Dominus Maniple", I have just had one game against a ferocious Dark Eldar army, and it was a completely success. I'm very happy. The Dominus maniple allows you to field, for around 400 points, one magus domi...

Re: Word Bearers Host WIP and Yellow is the new Red!!!

Hello everyone, sorry if I haven't been around, there was some moving and some work shifting, but I'm glad to tell you that my skitarii army is coming along quite nicely! Last thing I have magnetized and painted is this "little guy": https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1587/25319116370_056d3ee4c2_b.jpg S...

If Thalric or Dez cannot finish their ruststalkers, I would gladly postpone the challenge for next month if needed

Re: New Ad Mech

Things that I have noticed playing with my skitarii army is that the Onagri are a safe bet, and they demolish whatever they shoot. They are magnets to enemy fire, and they work really well in pairs. You can even walk them into ruins and get a 4+ save. Vanguards and rangers are simply fantastic, thei...

Hello everyone! I've been in hiatus for a long time, but I have some goodies to show you! "There is no enemy that our ruststalkers won't take down. They will throw themselves to the opposite troops, guided by the sacred code of our Dominus. Half of them will be put out of action before being able to...

5 Ruststalkers "There is no enemy that our ruststalkers won't take down. They will throw themselves to the opposite troops, guided by the sacred code of our Dominus. Half of them will be put out of action before being able to strike, but the other half will be more than enough to devastate the wret...

I'm sorry I'm this late. Minis are painted but I'm overwhelmed with work. I'll get the pictures tomorrow morning and post them.

Re: how common is a 2+ save?

If you don't have the resources to field AP2, or you think that it is really situational, why don't you bring several rapid-fire weaponery? Even armor 2+ buckle under the stress of a bucket of wound dices, and every model lost reduces dramatically the efficiency of the armor 2+ squad.

Re: Help finding army

I'm breaking a lance here. Get skitarii! They shot even Tau to pieces, they are more resilient than you may think, everything gets scout and crusader, and they have damn fast units. As for the colours, I'm using fifteen different pots for one mini. On the other hand, no, they are not "cheater", beca...

Re: Different color?

My skitarii forces are painted in yellow and frankly, they look original and everybody loves them. I have yet to find a neckbeard that refuses to play with me "because Mars armies should be RED!!". Paint them as you see fit. The most important thing in your Army is that you should like it! After all...

Re: Help with rules for my Skitarii forces!

Perhaps you could help me then with a last question xi. Formations: I have always played a pure skitarii maniple: only skitarii units from ranges between 1000 and 2000 points. I am considering the idea of bringing some Cult Mechanicus allies (One dominus and two units of Breachers, for a steep price...

Re: Help with rules for my Skitarii forces!

Thanks a lot to both of you for your answers. I can now have arguments in case anyone contest one rule or decision in-game. For the Omnissiah!

Re: Sanctioned Bat Rep Request

Though, to be frank, I feel the Ad Mech books biggest weakness is no transports. I would trade Steve's left testicle for some transport options... Ah! The left one! The lucky one!! I would expect an open-topped spider tank with a heavy weapon from this exchange! Me, on the other side, I squeeze the...

Help with rules for my Skitarii forces!

Hello everyone. In last games I've played with my skitarii there have been some rules I have had some doubts. I would like to expose them to you, my peers, and have your opinion. Thanks in advance! i. Rangers with arquebusses. They have the sniper rule: they have precision shot in 6 to hit, and they...
