Re: Witchfires and Psychic Shriek

If you're arguing RAI consider the following scenario: In 6th the exact same scenario occurred with Lash of Submission in the old CSM codex. It got FAQ'd to have to roll to it. It functioned VERY similarly to psy shriek. I realize this doesn't set anything in stone but it provides a bit of RAI behin...

Re: Witchfires and Psychic Shriek

Unfortunately yes, sometimes GW creates rules that don't really jive with what the unit does. Other examples include fliers with 4 missiles that all have ordinance, ie they make all the rest of the guns fire snap fire. There are yet rules oversights examples as well.

Thoughts on the New Apocalypse

Thoughts on the New Apocalypse Here are a few points of contention regarding the new apoc book. Objectives This is a major issue of contention in the new apoc book. The ability to take objectives is now relegated to the closest model. I do not think this is a change for the better. Having rules for...

PreGame

I overestimated the number of rolls I would have to do but still, I have 12 Gift of Mutation Rolls, 16 Psychic Power rolls, and 20 Daemonic Rewards I have to roll before the game starts. Just wondering if we would be roiling/writing these down as part of deployment or if there will be a predeploymen...

Re: Final decision on whether we will use the new book

I like the new reserve system as well. They will severely limit the "Tee Hee... I forgot to deploy these guys I'm going to deep strike them on your objectives bottom of Turn 5 to contest" shenanigans that happened last year. The new book also does not include disruptor beacons (which is a good thing...

Re: Final decision on whether we will use the new book

Just wondering if we were using the

4th edition super heavy explosions: ex. 3D6" S9 AP2

FW 6th edition super heavy explosions: ex. 6" S10 AP1, +D6" S3 AP-

6th edition super heavy explosions: ex. S D/10/5 AP 2/3/4


Also, are we adding the turn to the explosion table again?

Re: House Rules (need your input)

Just wondering how Supplement Books will be treated. Would it count for another ally (Say if you have Iyanden and Eldar) or would it just filter under one choice?

Re: House Rules (need your input)

What does it do? If it removed tables then no. ;) Bah!!! I was only going to remove 10-15 tables from the game! Kidding aside, Abbadon rolls on the Magma?? Table not the Seismic one so all he does is either hit three units with s7 ap3 hit, three units with s10 ap2 hit, or cause overheats. And he ha...

Re: House Rules (need your input)

If I bring Abbadon's Black Legion formation can I use his Planet Killer - Master of Disaster Ability?

Re: House Rules (need your input)

Just read the latest rumor about destroyer weapons. If these are the new destroyer rules, why even bother playing, when half your army is just going be taken off turn 1 -2? http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2013/07/40k-rumors-destroyer-weapon-rules.html The new Strength D rules are crrrrrrrrrazy!

Re: House Rules (need your input)

It's ok, you have 2-3 Tau players that will get all the 1st turn love, so you'll be around for the 2nd turn! I bet Tau will be spread out pretty evenly across both sides since they love being allies to all. Just need 4 of these on each side to even things out http://goo.gl/cxi3L I'm looking forward...

Re: Prep'ing for the 'Pocalypse for large armies

9) Assault takes the longest. I hope my opponents are willing to roll their overwatch dice quickly so that I can get through all of my assault moves and not leave some of my troops flapping in the breeze waiting to assault. I will do the same for my opponents. Overwatch is new and will eat up a cons...
