Re: Countering the counterers

I did bring that up, both to the players and GW staff, however they decided rather then stop him from playing against and have us looking for someone else to replace him, they said it would just be for fun. They don't take 2v2 very seriously there.

Countering the counterers

During the increasingly small time between work I have these days, I try to hit up my local GW whenever I can, however, there is a problem. I play Grey Knights. Now, while some people may not see a problem yet, no doubt some people are reading this knowing of the reputation GK have of being OP (True...

Re: New to grey knights

I cannot agree more with Silentbob. I can think of only one scenario where you would actually want psilencers over psycannons, and even then, take them anyway. They're more expensive, but atleast some things would get an armour save against it, to say nothing about the incredible strength,

Re: You know you've been playing too much 40k when....

I'm wouldn't say it's a sign of playing too much 40k, but it's certainly a symptom that'll only get worse, and that for me is rolling dice several times a day in hypothetical situations to test Lady Averages.

Re: Forgefiend or Maulerfiend?

They are most likely going to be like the blood angels " Blood Talons" where every successful / unsaved wound, = extra attack? Mabye?

Re: are vindicare assassins worth taking

By the way, the new changes in regards to the Vindicare is causing quite a bit of controversy at my local GW. Some people say that a Vindicare Assassin ONLY gets a 4d6 for armor pen flat, and other agree with what people are saying by us getting the bonus str. While I believe we are correct and that...

Re: are vindicare assassins worth taking

why a 4+ to hit? It's a 2 to hit, but in regards to a turbo-penetrator and shield breaker rounds, it's a 4+ to wound. Unlike the Hellfire round (one wound on a 2+), it doesn't say what it needs to cause a wound because the weapons strength is still X. If you look under the sniper rule in the new ru...

Re: 2k pure GK (well.... and vindicare)

All in all, I think it's a pretty good list. Not sure how well it'll do in 2000 point games as my knowledge of that play level is limited, but I certainly cant find anything wrong in your list.

Re: are vindicare assassins worth taking

Two shot gun? I assuming you mean the Turbo-Penetrator that does two wounds on models, and penetrates tanks, both of which are only ONE shot. Basically, you roll to hit, and if your firing at a model, you roll a 2+ to hit on a single die. If you roll a 4 or higher to wound, that is an instant two wo...

Re: can I fire both weapons

I was looking at the psilencer because if I take 2 then that is 24 shots - it might be a good way to beat those pesky terminators that are sure to come into every dark angels army in the future. I realize 24 shots looks appealing, but when you take into account that your wounding on 4's (usually), ...

Re: are vindicare assassins worth taking

I would highly recommend taking a vindicare. I field mind in almost every game, and he is always worth he's points cost, often blowing up Ork Battlewagons, land raiders and all sorts of big scary vehicles in a single shot on turn one. Can he always penetrate with those shots? No. But even if your lu...

Interested in fantasy, need an army to pick.

While 40k is my primary focus I've noticed in my local GW that alot of people play Warhammer Fantasy, and thanks to sites like this one and bluetablepainting for their battle reports, the gameplay mechanics from what I can gather sound really interesting and when I complete my current army I am thin...

Your worst games/defeats.

I'm not sure if this topic has been created, but all the same.. I recently walked away from my local GW after a crushing defeat, and althought I try not to let games get too much, I was spanked, and so I thought, what better way to cheer me up then knowing another peoples disastrous games, whether i...
