Re: Hows your WAAAAAAGH running theses days?

Large units of warbikers with shoota boys in battle wagons for board control and a couple dakka jets hasn't done me wrong yet. I'm winning considerably more games with this codex than the previous one. I regularly play top tier lists and haven't had an unwinnable game yet.

Re: Blood Angels inbound. Thoughts?

So the pre orders are up and I noticed a couple interesting things. The kits are for regular tag marines and a foot slogging priest. Could they be doing away with the assault marine focus? Also the tactical marine kit comes with a grav gun. If blood angels get grav weapons they might have been turne...

Re: Witchfires and Psychic Shriek

I would say no, simply because I've never seen anyone play it differently. I've used it and had it used against me not only in pick up games but at local tournaments and GTs and have never seen a player, TO or judge say that the power requires a roll to hit. Interpreting rules isn't just about the w...

Re: What do you use Nobs for?

I've used them to unlock extra battle wagons for events that only allow battle forged armies. They make for decent objective holders if you can put them in a spot with good cover.

Re: nids players.. something mysetic this way comes

I thought monstrous creatures could only fire 2 weapons a turn. Does it have a rule that allows it to fire all five?

Re: New tyranids

Did anyone else notice the teaser trailer from white dwarf daily on Monday? That video would leave me to believe that the Tyranids may actually be getting a new codex. So far as I'm aware they've only ever done those for codex/supplement releases.

Re: Feedback for Storms of Ixia Campaign

This was my favorite campaign that you have done. It would be cool to see a fantasy campaign.

Re: Bully Boyz performing well, but still no cigar...

unless you are running 30 boy squads I would just ignore Draigo and his retinue. They're going to be killing 15+ boys per round of combat so tar pitting them isn't going to work. Use fast units, like bikes, to out manuever them. Dakka is your friend with that matchup. Once they start failing saves t...

Re: Wizards

The rule they are refering to is Magical Interference. It is found in the magic items section of the reference at the back of the brb. It says that wizards can only select magic armor if they have the option to take normal armor in their codex entry. I'm on my phone so my page numbers are all messed...

Re: Strategy is not my strong suit

Orks really need chaff units to be successful now. Cheap boys mobs and fast units like war buggies and defkoptas go a long way toward keeping your heavy hitters alive. You should be forcing your opponent to choose between killing your assault units who are already in his face or your shooty units si...

Re: Space Wolves Codex Discussion.

I'm still reading through and some of the relics and sagas could make a list a lot of fun. What I'm most pleased about is the fact that I can't see any unit being called OP. (Except maybe Murderfang, TWC and the fact we could spam flyers like necrons and stay battle forged but other than that.........

You should have gotten 2 sets of terminator bases giving you 3 spares after the termies and HQs are based.

Re: New SW flyer.... Seems uber.

I find it interesting that the dataslate doesn't actually list the murderclaws as part of its war gear. That's one hell of a typo.
