Harlequin Scheme

Hi everyone. I'm in the process of adding some Harlequin allies into my mixed Aeldari list and am trying to come up with a cool paint scheme. I want something that uses a lot of pale colours so it contrasts with my Ulthwé and my dark purple dark eldar. What do you think of these two minis? No highli...

Re: marker lights

Bojazz is right. The index says '' when a unit is hit by a markerlight, place a counter next to it for the remainder of the phase'' so they're no longer 'spent' like they were in 7th. The benefits are cumulative, so if you have two markerlight on a dreadnought all Tau Empire models shooting at that ...

I was thinking about putting a captain with them, for the re-rolls of 1, and some close combat ability.
That's not something I've ever tried, but sounds like a fun idea. Give it a go!

Re: Thinking of starting a space marine army.

Sternguard are great! A squad of them with a banner bearer in a drop pod causes some serious pain.

Re: 1000 point Blood Angels

This guy did kind of cheat though. Intercessors sergeants can't take chainswords for +1 attack. Intercessors can take the chainsword - they BA versions even have it in the box instead of the power swords. Good point about the rhino being a weak point - I hadn't considered that at all! I'll rethink ...

Re: 1000 point Blood Angels

Thanks for the feedback! I was thinking that the Sanguinary Guard and Captain would be able to deal with the high armour stuff. If the Librarian casts Unleash Rage on the SG , they do on average on average 11 wounds against T7 3+ (assuming rerolls for the warlord being close and the Ancient - also c...

1000 point Blood Angels

I set myself a challenge with this list Keep it fluffy (no spam, no scouts as BA scouts tend to work separately from the main force) No named characters (although I am still tempted by the Sanguinor haha!) Have presence all over the board (my BA lists tend to have rubbish board control as I just rus...

Re: New to Blood Angels

I'm a new BA player too. Completely agree with the other reply - go for what you think is cool. Everything in the codex is good, IMO, if used for the right thing. Personally I'm a fan of jump pack assaults, so Sanguinary Guard, Death Company, and Vanguard Vets are my (very biased) suggestions.

Re: Eldar Troop choises loadout

My personal preference for Guardian heavy weapon platforms is the shuriken cannon. They're incredibly versatile, especially when coupled with Doom, and your Guardians can still advance without worrying about the irritating -1 for shooting. The only other choice that I can see being worthwhile is the...

Re: Starting Blood Angels

Thanks for all the advice everyone! It's stopped me worrying about ending up with obsolete models, and I've jumped in and just ordered myself a start collecting set. If they do end up releasing a new one...well, I may just have to get that one as well haha! Think about how you want your BA army to o...

Starting Blood Angels

I'm tempted to start a Blood Angels army to provide some variety from my Eldar, but I've got a couple of questions. With the advent of primaris marines, I'm a bit concerned about getting any models before the codex comes out in case my purchases end up being a waste of money. Am I just over-worrying...

Re: Craftworld Codex Discussion

Codex FAQ is out. Nothing much has changed (confirmed that Hemlocks have to pay for spirit stones) but it does confirm that Bojazz's ways of increasing Swooping Hawk mortal wounds output is legit. Also Ynnari has been well and truly nerfed in the Xenos 1 index FAQ - you can no longer soulburst in yo...

Re: Eldar Craftworlds 8ed codex review

Initially I had a similar impression to you. But the more I read the codex, the more I pick up on subtle little combos and synergies. In my opinion that is where the strength of this codex really lies. For example, the humble storm guardian. If you use them as a screen near your Warlord (with the Am...

Re: Craftworld Codex Discussion

Definitely agree about wanting as many command points as possible. Haven't had a chance to get a game in yet but just reading through the book it's clear that the power comes from using the stratagems and combos they can make (storm guardians in combat... Cast enhance on them, add in supreme disdain...

Re: Craftworld Codex Discussion

One thing I just spotted... Star cannons have literally halved in price, down to 15 points each. Seems like they might be an OK choice for use against multi-wound infantry now.
