DC Attacks 50 WS5 attacks, rerolling misses, ~45 hits 45 S5 hits, rerolling to wound, is ~40 wounds (DC reroll to hit AND wound on the charge with a ...

Re: Death Company Loadout

I usually like to run a 10 man squad with reclusiarch, just pistols and chainswords. With the new rage rules, that gives them 50 attacks on the charge, or in your case, 25, and you get rerolls to hit and wound. its usually enough to destroy a unit. And it's only 480 points!!! (sarcasm btw) Don't kn...

Re: Furioso Dreadnaught loadouts

Unfortunately, unless the new Imperial Armour Apocalypse book has changed the ruling, Blood Angels can't take the Lucius. I'm basing my knowledge on Imperial Armour Apocalypse: Second Edition (which is the book released before the new Imperial Armour Apocalypse book. can Forgeworld make this more co...

Re: canis wolfborn vs wolf lord

Just to add to what MFletch said; Canis as the HQ of your Main force? Probably not a good idea. Now as an ally, he can do some interesting things. If you are in need of some cheap screening units, his ability to take wolves as troops can be somewhat helpful. For example, I have a Jumper BA list with...

Re: Do Bionics and Feel no Pain stack?

i dont know the specific rule for bionics, but you may only ever re roll a dice once. so failing an armour save, and taking a FnP is a reroll on 5+ and im assuming the bionics is also a reroll on a 6+. so no, one or the other. but probably the fnp is better (unless bionics isnt affected by instant ...

Re: forgeworld dreadnought drop pod.

That's always a solid loadout. A decent option I like to use is a Furioso with Heavy Flamer and Frag Cannon. Primarily used as part of the second-wave of drops, after troops have been blasted out of their tin cans. Three templates, one Str 5 and two Str 6, which also gives you the ability to glance ...

Re: forgeworld dreadnought drop pod.

A couple things: 1) Until they FAQ it, the Lucius Drop Pod doesn't allow you to assault on the turn it arrives anymore, thanks to the rule changes in 6th. I would still play it as it was in 5th, as that's the intent of the model in the first place, and heck, you're spending a Fast Attack slot on it ...

Ork psychic powers don't roll to hit.....they automatically hit. Zog doesn't need a Ballistic Skill.

Re: Help with a Blod Angles list

If you want the DC dread to really shine, pay the extra 30 points to get the forgeworld pattern dreadnought drop pod *cough* assault the turn you DS *cough* *cough* With the updated rules on the Lucius Pattern Drop Pod, we BA can't take them anymore :/ .

Re: Assault Squad Loadout

Without a Jump Pack or the Wings of Sanguinius power, that Librarian will slow down your jumpers. I'd choose one type of special weapon for your Assault Marines. Either two flamers or two meltas. It's tempting to try and cover your bases and generalize your unit loadout with Anti-tank and Anti-infan...

Re: Death March of the Ancients MK2 (2000pt BA/IG list)

that as its illegal is if you re-red im am about 80% positive you need 10 DC for a DC dread to be a troop... Five per dread. PG.89 of the codex.

only 2( not sure if dc dread can score if not then its just 1) scoring troop choices.... even if you play the big guns never tire you'll only have 4 scoring units. Most armies have 3 scoring troops so your going to struggle with such a low amount of scoring units. Itll be super simple to erase unit...

Death March of the Ancients MK2 (2000pt BA/IG list)

So my last Dreadnought heavy list is a bit lacking in the long-range firepower, so I've decided to add some IG heavy weapon support, along with some much needed scoring units. This list is all about Dreads, especially the CC monsters that BA can field. It's half pod-based, as dreads can be terribly ...

Re: I hate Orks!!!!

Flamers, missile launchers, heavy bolters, assault cannons, and plasma cannons are your friend. And both Redeemer and Crusader Landraiders would be good Ork killers.
