Re: 6th edition strategic assets

Okay well in that case, I'm going to start throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks :). This will probably be long, I'll try to keep it organized and centered around strategic assets / warlords. *Disclaimer* I play a lot of Apoc but have not played ANY new Apoc games so my opinions & ideas may ...

Re: Plans For 2014

There are some advantages but some major drawbacks to the "I" table shape that I can see: 1) It favors shooting. Any CC army such as nids or orcs will be funneled into this one 48 inch longboard section while getting two spread out tables worth of templates laying waste to his army. The last thing a...

Re: 6th edition strategic assets

Agreed, I'm curious to see how MWG will address this. I am definitely for a slow and careful integration of some assets (such as Orbital Strike, Precise Co-ordinates, Re-arm...) Another issue this would bring up is warlords, the new book seems to add a lot of emphasis on warlords. Would we follow th...

Re: 6th edition strategic assets

That would definitely make that formation irrelevant. I'm just curious how they would address this specific formation (or similar ones) as well as assets. Maybe have a few assets they can choose from (like orbital bombardment?), stuff that would add to the destruction and are not time consuming or s...

6th edition strategic assets

Hi guys, As far as I know strategic assets are not utilized, however, what about some of the new formations which grant strategic assets of your choice? For example the Space Marine Masters of the Chapter is said to grant 3 strategic assets. Would we be ignoring this formation's rule all together or...

Re: House Rules (need your input)

Just curious (most likely for next year hehe)...How would you guys count the Harridan? There are debates over it being a flyer, how would you guys play it? (no precedent set with you guys so far) *** EDIT *** Harridan got updated in the second edition imperial armor. Are you guys able to elaborate o...

Re: House Rules (need your input)

Hi guys. I showed up last year with ~8000 points of nids including two Hierophants. I was against Grey Knights. Everything was great EXCEPT the Grey Knights StormRaven psychic missiles (mindstrike I believe). My opponent fielded two StormRavens with these. I am not a GK player so maybe someone can g...
