Actually I believe they are the next xeno codex. BUT I COULD BE WRONG :P

Re: Even more confusion about the Dread Knight

Alpine262 - please check out page 42 of the base rule book, under the heading "Fighting With Two Single-Handed Weapons" That is where it describes what happens. You have to pick which one your using and get the benefit from it, and not from both. It also narrows down when you get the bonus attack f...

Re: Need help with HQ

For models like draigo or crowe, its not really proxy'ing if you use them as brother champion's or grand masters because thats exactly what they are, they just have 2 different sets of rules and you get to choose which ones you want at the points cost listed. Also like exodus said there are models f...

Re: Very Nice ... Dread Knights are on sale for 25% off

Unfortunately the discount is only useful for those that can pick it up from the store. Anyone who gets it shipped ends up paying the same amount or even more. I find the best way to shop at MWG is to buy in bulk when you know what you want, that way your only paying one shipping charge and the deal...

Re: Waiter, there's some Tau in my GK

You can't deny the truth to that statement though. I can reject it. I reject the idea that it's ok for a new book to come out and basically trump an older book. You're (GW is) punishing the loyal players of an army and making their force less competitive. It's not their fault, they obviously don't ...

Re: Why Do You Like Crons?

I love how fluff wise and model wise they are basically robot zombies that can repair themselves. I've loved them for many years now I just can't play them because I try to build to be competitive and I really really really really really....(insert infinite number of repeats of the word "really")..d...

Re: Waiter, there's some Tau in my GK

I’m not a big fan of the justification of army imbalances with the following reply “Well, you just need to wait around until your codex gets updated.” To me that comes off a little callous, and a I translate it as “I don’t play your army, and I don’t care, so wait a few years and quit complaining.”...

Re: Waiter, there's some Tau in my GK

I understand your complaint corpsey I really do but I think its already been pointed out that you can't really compared new codices to older and out of date codices. The difference (as it should be) between tau and GK are points per model. The issue with the older codices though is their units are m...

Re: Even more confusion about the Dread Knight

yes the fists make him str 10 and +1 attack, no if he has the sword he no longer gets +1 attack and is only str 6 if he uses that, but he can still use the fist for str 10 If he uses the sword or the hammer he doesn't get the +1 attack, you are correct. However if he uses the sword, he will stay at...

Re: 2500pt GK Funline (fun gunline get it?)

Nice list! Personally I like 3 servitors with multimeltas instead of 2 with plasma cannons. Also I like purifiers instead of strike squads for the extra psycannons (but clearly your elites are spoken for!).

Re: List of Questions to ask Games Workshop about Grey Knights

So you do the effect of the 6+, which is to roll twice more on the chart and ignore any repeats. So you roll 2 more times, which will always be 6+, which is ignored so you roll again, or discard the roll, meaning nothing can ever happen. I think daemoncrusher said something before about an infinite...

Re: Imperial Guard & Tyranid Diorama - Pic Heavy!

I LOVE IT! It looks amazing the detail is awesome! My only quarrel/criticism is that the guards left hand looks silly! Other then that the piece is awesome and says a lot!

PS: If you can't tell I am a massive fan of Tyranid/Guard dioramas!
