Re: Are All Armies Foes...

Kovlovsky, brilliant explanation, but I will admit that I will read this a few times away from any noise or distractions, just so that I can get a nice clear picture in my head, as I'm now asking myself, if they have the odd occasional skirmish, how comes we're actually trying to blow each others b...

Re: Sanguinary Guard vs Death company and salty friends

I just one intervene on two points. First, if your friends are competitive to the point that it makes you loosing interest, like Mach-Ten says, it's time to go speak to them. If they are true friends, they have to listen to you and accomodate you. The second point is about Magnus. He's not what he ...

Re: Chapter tactics - initial thoughts?

Yes they got leaked online, so they've obviously decided to just officially announce them all.

Re: 2000 point Heretic Astartes List- Chaos Undivided

Flamers are just ok, but my concern is that Marine armies are at a disadvantage to Hordes when it comes to controlling objectives. Plus, the unit in general is there to deal with infantry and get on objectives. Flamers just make sense. There are other units that are good at killing monsters, vehicle...

2000 point Heretic Astartes List- Chaos Undivided

Just doing some theory crafting, wondering what you'd all make of this list; HQ Daemon Prince with Wings Malefic Talons, Mark of Tzeentch Psychic; Smite, Prescience Daemon Prince with Wings Malefic Talons, Mark of Tzeentch Psychic; Smite, Prescience Troops 5x Chaos Space Marines Flamer 5x Chaos Spac...

Re: Chapter tactics - initial thoughts?

I'm less confident than most in this thread. GW just showed us the Power Creep is alive and well. Assault, once again, is hindered in favor of shooting. Ultramarines remain the "GOTO" for any competitive space marine player. I'm expecting the other codex chapter tactics to be nowhere near as strong...

Re: Weak units of Chaos

I'm doing fairly well in 8th, but mainly because some previously powerful things have been nerfed and I haven't played against whatever people will have found to be the new strong lists. I've chosen my opponents well, in other words...

Re: Weak units of Chaos

Mostly agree with a few provisos; I really, really like the new Daemon Prince. I'm running him as Khorne with Malefic Talons, bringing him up to 7 attacks hitting on 2s rerolling 1s is sweet. St 7, AP -2, 2 Damage threatens most things. Without detachment bonuses that will come in the new codexes th...

Re: Spam on the Forum

Thanks for the replies guys, really appreciate it- I spent about 8 years as a moderator on a forum so I know what a thankless task it can be! :?

Spam on the Forum

Hello mods and admins,

Just raising the issue of the frequency and volume of spam posts clogging up the forum. It's happened a number of times now and it makes the forum nigh on unreadable when it does; are there any plans to make the forum less prone to this sort of thing?

Re: Mortal wounds savable?

So in case there was any lingering doubt in anyones minds, the new FAQ clarifies it; Q. Can abilities such as Disgustingly Resilient be used to ignore wounds if they were inflicted by mortal wounds? A. Yes. Link here https://17890-presscdn-0-51-pagely.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/40K_8t...

Re: Mortal wounds savable?

It is in the link above. It's called "Designer's Commentary". The list of languages are actually buttons that will download the pdf in that language for you. I don't think he meant there was a separate faq as well, but rather that it was " a designers commentary and faq" Just for less clicking, I'l...

Re: Primaris or Deathguard

Why are The Unforsaken considered to be Chaotic Good? Aren't they going around spreading horrific plagues and such? Sounds like a bit of a dick move tbh!

Re: So how did your last game go, 8TH EDITION! (Or other games, of course!)

Got my first win of 8th edition, playing the Eternal War Mission where there are four objectives worth 3 point that are scored at the end of the game. I changed up my list bringing 5 rhinos with 6 5-man CSM squad, 8 Berserkers, 6 possessed. I had a Chaos Lord, Terminators and Obliterators deep strik...
