Re: upgrades on gaunts

The strangleweb would be a must-have weapon, if it worked slightly different. Don't make it wound at all, just have every hit model make a Strength test, and then have them pinned, or concussed or something. How it works now is simply a mess, and only ever to be taken against IG armies without tanks...

Re: Dont know what to play? Has to be Xenos.

I honestly think Necron would be the best for your requirements: All shooty while not immediately dying when they get assaulted, and if you build a infantry list with 4-6 troops slots+dedicated transport (Ghost-Ark, Nightscythe, not to mention despairteks) you have a mobile, powerful shooting army t...

Re: Starting out with Tyranids...

I'd go with the gargoyles. Not only do they look a whole lot better, with the codex as of now they are actually usefull. That might change with a new Codex, especially if the torrent-rule rumors are true, but even then I'd be shocked if a Pyrovore was Tyranids best answer to hordes.

Re: Sisters of Battle?

i bet SoB are being rolled into Inquisition Dex with Grey Knights and Deathwach after BT being rolled in and in 7ed we will see new faction :) Why would Gw ever do that? When sisters finally get a real codex they're gonna sell like crazy, so why would they make less army books when they can more mo...

If you roll double ones on your Psychic Test and the Psyker dies, his power still goes off.
Psyker doesn't die, but just takes a wound.

I think he meant even if it's that psykers last wound (i.e. he takes a wound and dies)

With average rolling, your going to spawn 30 Gaunts in the first round alone, you'll be running out of gaunts real quick this way.

Re: GW's Site needs some fixing

Gw is known for not knowing what to do with the interwebs, heck they still sport a pre 80's sellers method.
Well that then explains why they're using Java - It's the future! At least form an 80's perspective :mrgreen:

Re: Question about Exile ray

EDIT: still posted for completion: If you look in the back of your Codex: Necron you'll find a list of all units&weapons with the according pages - for my german version, the transdimensional beam is on site 82, the exile ray special rule is in italic directly beneath it. simply put, the ray makes a...

1 Group of Yrmgarls (not too many, be careful not to waste points. Depending on what pointlevel you play ten might be too much already.), 1*2 Zoans, 1 Doom of Malantai (Proxy a Zoanthrope if you don't want to kitbash your own Doom) with Sporepod.

Re: General Q&A Thread

1) how do psykers work? Depending on their powers they roll in the respective phase (movement or shooting). They roll a Ld check: 2 dice lower or equal to the psykers Ld value. Double 1s or 6s means perils of the warp: the psyker takes a wound. Double one means he still gets to work his magic ( :mr...

Re: Mycetic spores

3 Zoanthropes (pop tanks)
popping a Monolith with a 4 and a 6 (+6 - Monolith go boom). few moments are that satisfying, especially if you've been shooting at a Ghost-Arc to no avail (seriously, 3 Hive Guard, needing 5 for glance, how hard can it be?).

Re: Thinking about necrons, had a question...

Absolutely, it's one of the few battleboxes where you can use everything in it in a 1000-1500pts list. Add a Command Barge (use as Annihilation Barge + Overlord) and you actually have a legal army that can win games.

This Codex is the most recent one, but there are FAQs for all older Codices to bring them (more or less successful) up to date.

Re: Units 'in' cover

If parts of your battlefield don't come with some sort of base already, then you and your opponent should define the area which counts as part of the ruins before the game, if only for the difficult/dangerous terrain checks. Herein lies the solution to your question as well: Once the unit is in the ...

Re: April FAQ

The Necron-FAQ now says the same thing twice: If in close combat with a Command Barge, you can attack the barge instead of the rider. One time in read, one time in black. what the heck?
