Re: New Edition fear

Koonitz, I like the way you summed up your response. I guess my response to "people want the best pew pew" is that all the best pew pew is never discussed with any frequencies. Baneblades, Titans, Forgeworld crap, these rarely get discussed, but the newer stuff does. Take Deathwatch, BAs, or Necron ...

Re: New Edition fear

So, new players vs. old players. Would you say it's literally "new" players, or are we seeing a completely new demo of players? Because a small majority of people I talk with on the state of the hobby is that no one is attending events anymore. It's mostly just small 1k games at local hobby stores. ...

Re: 40 K movement trays

I have a hard time keeping track of my squads distances, and so have to move my guardsmen individually. I tried using trays once and got called out on my positioning, a couple guardsmen moved beyond their movement, and then I lost track of exactly where they were. I used to advocate for them in rush...

Re: GW Army Building Program is live!

Battlescribe had a lot of flaws when it came out and the second edition of it was absolutely terrible and unoptimized with even adding a single model took time to load. Even now, the entries still have issues especially if you look at other game systems that aren't as widely supported as 40k. There...

Re: Small factions in Warhammer

The problem with the system is not the unit, but the user. Most of these "small unit" groups are meant to be taken as back up, or additional forces. Everything except the Custodes was not meant to be a stand alone army. Look at your example of Death Watch. They are best used in conjunction with othe...

New Edition fear

So, with the mapped out time line of GW edition releases, they are down to roughly 1 every 2-3 years. 6th was 2, 7th was 3, and 8th has already been out for about a year. Given their money-making timeline, I am worried that buying new armies might be crushed in the edition wave. I spent over $300 on...

Re: GW Army Building Program is live!

No, we started when as a community we gave them millions of dollars. This likely took under 5k. This is crap. 15 people on their own with zero funding made a gorgeous platform that cost nothing and only relies on donations. It has all the chapters, and is consistently updated. It boggles my mind why...

Hey that totally useless thing that helps nobody and arrived over a year late, even though anyone with a single year of C++ could have built it in a week, is here. WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Re: Drop Pods by Turn 3?

Just as a learning point for me, can someone please explain the purpose of drop pods? I never played SM, but there seem to be so many more advantageous ways to get SMs on the table in the enemy backfield other than Drop pods.

What are the advantages to Drop pods?

Re: Custodes/IG Mix

Right, so a battalion det of Custodes, and a Battalion Det of IG. It's not hard to do either. As a matter of fact, I could likely do 2 bn dets of IG. All I would need is four Company commanders, and 6 squads of Guardsmen. Like, 500 points. Then the 15 hundred points of a Custodes BN, I would be swim...

Custodes/IG Mix

Has anyone tried to soup Custodes with IG infantry? I feel like it has but I haven't seen any competitive lists. IG tanks and Custodes, yes. IG Infantry and Custodes, no. I searched, and all I found was Shield captains on bikes with venerable DKs, and an armored IG battalion with Pask. Any advice?

Re: Beta Primaris Marines Transport Rules

Be careful with blanket statements like "any". Any SM transport, or any Imperium transport? I'd love to see a squad of hell blasters pop out of the back of a Stormlord, but unfortunately that's not possible.

Re: IG and Armor Ballistic Skill

HAH! A Salamander command vehicle and a Trojan Support Vehicle, which gives it re-rolls on hits and bonuses to hit! You can make a single baneblade (Shadowsword, lets be honest here) re-roll 1s?(Need hard confirm on this, anyone got IG Armor Codex from FW) and +1 to hit on a single tank in the unit.

Re: IG and Armor Ballistic Skill

It doesn't really matter. I am going to be rolling dice by the buckets. The storm lord alone is over 40 shots. My only concern is what, if any, orders apply to baneblades? Can Pask even order a baneblade? Secondly, I am thinking about dropping the Stormlord for a Hellhammer, because I think the auto...

Re: IG and Armor Ballistic Skill

So I built a list revolving around 1 Baneblade, 1 Shadowsword, and 1 Stormlord. It's a mock up of the unit that attacks the planet in "Shadowsword" the book. I have Pask, and a squad of Guardsmen in the Storm Lord. Works out to exactly 2000 points. If I give all three 4 sponsons, and a Storm bolter....
