Re: Tallyband and Overwatch

Charges are resolved one at a time, but all the charge reactions are decided simultaneously: so if a Tallyband unit declares a charge, the charged unit must hold or flee, as it can't overwatch. If another unit declares a charge, then the target unit can declare Overwatch, but if the Tallyband unit c...

Re: Help me build an EC list?

Looks good so far! I like the Storm Eagle choice, very fitting with the quick assault style of the legion. In terms of improvement, I'd say that if you're taking Pride of the Legion, you don't really need to take Tacticals at all: another Veteran squad with heavy weapons like missile launchers would...

Re: Glories of the Ultramarines 2nd (Full Battle Company!)

I mean, it's okay and all, but it's not a real Battle Company without a transport for each squad. And where are the other Vindicators and Stormtalons? Those little guys are going to get awfully lonely all on their own! Seriously though, that's a damn impressive army, looks incredible and I'm sure it...

...I think that physically hurt to read. If you're giving it away I'll happily take it at my Lightning Strike Fighter Happy Trails Retirement Centre, where they're free to roam the fields and blow up tanks like balloons.

Re: MWG Josh Nights Lords

I'd actually pick a third option for flyer: Lightning Strike Fighter. It's a cheaper, faster aircraft with one of the most versatile arsenals in 30k, including kraken penetrator missiles, arguably the best anti-tank in the game. Fire Raptors are anti-infantry, very good anti-infantry, but Night Lord...

Re: Revenants Legion Rules

I think that 30k is not the right setting for homebrews: it's entrenched, it's a very delicate meta and I think you should just choose an existing Legion to play with - you could still create your own named Praetor and company for them, it's not like 30k is a creativity free zone, I just feel creati...

Re: How to beat the Ad Mech War Convocation?

Grav everything until it dies: 2+ squads of Sternguard Drop Podded in on Turn 1 with combi-grav or combi-meltas will pop the Knight, probably taking a chunk of troops with it, whilst grav-using White Scar bikers will survive anything thanks to re-rollable Jink and mop up the troops. As long as the g...

Re: Starting Iron Warriors

Iron Warriors have a great new Rite of War (you will need Horus Heresy Book VI to use it) that uses heavy artillery, so I'd pick up some Barrage weapons like Legion Medusas, Quad Mortar Rapier Batteries, Basilisks and the like. You'll want some tanks as well, Iron Warriors are all about big guns, so...

Looking good! How are the jetbikes assembly-wise? Are they relatively simple models to put together?

Re: Getting started

Welcome! 30k armies are primarily variations of Space Marine Legions: there are eighteen to choose from, sixteen of which have rules already and two are coming soon. You can also play Mechanicum, Solar Auxilla (Militarum Tempestus in 30k), Imperial Militia (Imperial Guard in 30k) or Knights. If you'...

Re: Khorne deamonkin Kor'lath rule question!

Indeed, a rule from two separate formations I refuse to use. As well as Centurion Devastators in drop pods, also a tactic I refuse to use. But, if you so wish to flaunt stupid and ignorantly broken, but still technically legitimate, rules against me, then tell me it's my fault for complaining (read...

Re: Khorne deamonkin Kor'lath rule question!

That's exactly how it works: a Chaos Lord ascending to Daemon Prince does spawn a Bloodthirster, and then the Daemon Prince's death spawns another. It's probably a poorly worded rule and not what they intended, but hey, not our problem, unleash the Bloodthirsters!

Re: Chaos Spartan

Building them is an absolute nightmare: it takes a ton of Green Stuff and super-glue to put together, cleaning the parts alone takes hours, and you'll probably find huge gaps in it when you're assembling it. It's also nowhere near as survivable as it is in 30k with how many D-Weapons and haywire wea...
