Re: 8th Ed. Area Effects

I have found that blast weapons and ordance to be somewhat lacking. Vindicators for example have gone from ok tank hunters or elite unit killers to now where its the 1D3 is quite agonising considering the short range and rolling a 1 or 2 then the chance of doing little damage D6 damage. Im surprise ...

Re: Death Korp of Krieg, 120 power (roughly 2k points)

Good on you wanting to stick being fluffy. At end of the day you bought them to play as krieg and not as catachans or mordians. You take the pros and cons. Have you got any of the rough rider krieg units? my friend has been getting tonnes of great results running them as a squad of 10 with two wound...

New faction?

Been speaking to a few people and we agree that a new xeno race should come into the fold. We the move in story it would be great. As none of could agree on a look eg reptillian/wookie like/avian etc. We concluded maybe a mercenary/bounty hunter type guild could fill a niche. Tonnes of specialised u...

Re: How Do You Play 40K ?

Both myself and my friend play narrative: - Night lords- similar to the books its pure non daemon/cultist army except led by a daemon prince dedicated to tzeentch who they hate what hes become. Tau- suit heavy and are of farsight enclave faction Ultramarines- very much the more defensive build and l...

Re: Tau codex?

I would assume it be 1 or 2 imperium books. I suspect with xmas around the corner i would guess space wolves or dark angels with their primarch

Re: Astra Militarum Errata:

Seems like you dont understand my sarcasm. Of course its dumb! Its abuse of rules that i hate the most. Ive always been a advocate for balance/close and fair games. GW unfortunately have this appauling knack of writing like a 5 year old in which gets abused by people. How on earth theres faq's 2 wee...

Re: Astra Militarum Errata:

No need to poo poo the idea of 9 basilisks in reserve. Its so brilliant that no one would expect it. Generals in history have done crazy things like that to throw off the opposite general.

Its genius and pure gold

I wont be surprise if they change those to reflect chaos and marines to just:

Guardians, bikes and walkers

Re: Astra Militarum Errata:

Totally agree on commisar fix. As a Night Lord player, they really poo poo the whole fear strategy, these are basic troops who havent been through the mental fortitude that marines go through, they should be vunerable to panic on mass. Unfortunately Eldar got something similar where they only lose a...

Re: Contemptor or helbrute

60 points difference is immaterial to the question. Im sure they found room for one or the other.

I still back the contemptor considering the hellbrute look is ugly and doesnt fit into my pure NL army. No daemon filth or corruption over here. 😄

Re: Contemptor or helbrute

Ive used both. My contemptor managed go toe to toe with the avatar of khaine. They are very effective due to the invul save and the chance to gain wounds when it kills. The hellbrute on the otherhand doesnt has as much staying power but craze is very handy as people have to debate whether to nuke it...

Interesting to know in detail what were those chaos armies in the top or if any included fw units. I expected guilliman leading the charge.

Re: Forge World Guard Update

I suspect it wont be a while. As one of their head guy passed away recently i suspect they are very much further behind than normal.

They getting tonnes of pressure put on them to get horus heresy into 8th edition rules and finish the primarchs

Re: 8th Edition power tiers.

Guard are seriously top contenders this edition. Played 4 games against them and it can be very brutal or i get very lucky. Chaos marines are ok, min/max is extremely important and deep striking is also key. Would of like if they kept some of the traitor legion quirks eg raptors are troop choice for...
