Re: why do people like this game?

I've grown so tired of playing 40k that I don't bother anymore. It's just too much work to play. I love the models, and have many left to paint, so will carry on in that regard, but when I want to play, I'm all about x-wing now. It's just simpler, and more fun.

Re: What is the WORST unit in your army/codex?

In favour of the war buggies is that they are fast vehicles, who can squadron, but apart from that they're pretty bad.
A good distraction unit though.

Re: What is the WORST unit in your army/codex?

I'm painting 15 at this very moment, with Zagstruck.

Obviously I'll bring them in to play when I get bored of winning. ;-)

Re: What is the WORST unit in your army/codex?

Hmm, which to choose? My problem is the fact that I'm selecting from the ork codex, so many contenders, such choice. I'd have to plump for Stormboyz though. Love the models, but flying slugga choppas with a 6+ armour, that can die when moving is not great. Deepstrike in you say? Lovely, now we get t...

Re: Assaulting from Reserves

You think assault marines are bad? You should try playing Storm Boyz. Their only formation forces them to arrive via deepstrike, where they get to stand about in the open with a 6+ armour save for an entire turn before being allowed to do anything at all. Might as well just pay the points to smash t...

Re: Decurions in Apocalypse

The new Ork decurion is certainly aimed at bigger games. The council of da waaagh can stack upto 900pts without breaking a sweat. It's the only way to give the whole army fearless and waaagh every turn from turn 1. As well as giving Ghaz a 2++ all game long.

Re: Curse of the Wulfen

Got to say, I absolutely loathe the minis. They look terrible. It's almost like GW are an abusive parent that hates it's ginger step child. All the most ridiculous, grotesque minis are SW ones. Which is an absolute shame, as armoured space vikings are an awesome concept. Whoever came up with these a...

Re: Oi Ladz, wot would you bring to WAAAAAGH!!!?

Tankbustas and gunwagons for transport. They are a straight up auto include for me. MANZ in a truck as a missile, pain boy, zhardsnark and warbikers as troops. Zhardsnark with deffkoptas and killsaws, lobbas, KMKS and Traktor kannons are all solid choices to build your army around. Orks don't have a...

Re: Focused Fury

I know it's not a batrep request, but as a warmahordes newcomer, I'd love to see a couple of tutorials in the same vein as your 40k ones. I do believe there is a series of videos where Matt teaches Ork Dan (also known as Codex Dan on YouTube) how to play Warmachine . its the basics but it is still ...

Re: awkward challenge

.... And for look out sir, I personally would write the rules that tanks can't be look out sired but that's intriguing that the rules may written to allow one to achieve that advantage. The rules state that only non-vehicle characters can look out sir. I looked this up after some one tried to convi...
