Re: IG and Armor Ballistic Skill

However, Regimental rules don't apply to Super Heavy Auxillary detachments so the best way to squeeze it in is to run it in a supreme command. Be careful if you're mixing and matching regiments because tournaments and ITC tend to force you to have to paint each detachment a different color.

Re: strike from the shadows

Can't you only use the stratagem on one unit, though?

Re: Bobby G Only in death

Hehehehe. I'll have to remember to bank those some command points for whenever that happens.

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

My friend wanted to get some tournament level practice going since he's never done one before so I brought the meanest Ultramarines list I could think of which included Guilliman, 4 assault cannon razorbacks, 3 predators, 1 vindicator, and plasma tactical squads in eacb transport. We played on the N...

Re: 40k Terrain Rule Amendments

Our trees are removable so it's simply as many models as you can fit on the base. Now for woods where the trees are glued, it's trickier to do so you'd probably have to go with the physical limitation of how many models can fit.

Re: 40k Terrain Rule Amendments

It only blocks if you're behind the base of the forests, but not if you're in them. If you're in them, it's +1 cover. Terrain wise, someone could argue that a dense forest would block line of sight and even movement for non infantry if you set up enough trees on the base or glue them down. Since our...

Re: 40k Terrain Rule Amendments

I'd lean bikes. Calvary I wouldn't imagine to be as nimble to control in close quarters as beasts are so trying to get it to jump through a window would be a challenge without some strong encouragement.

Re: 40k Terrain Rule Amendments

You weren't the only one who said beasts should be able to move through walls so I'll make that change. The woods blocking line of sight is there because players were concerned about gunlines being powerful so I wanted to give a way for units to sneak up and use terrain more easily, but strategicall...

40k Terrain Rule Amendments

Hi everyone, In light of how ambiguous the 40k rulebook leaves terrain rules up to the players, my group (The 40k Parliament) decided to draft up a document that amends the terrain rules for everyone to agree on ahead of time. Have a look, leave comments and suggestions, and feel free to use these a...

Well, that's GW. They have a very strict policy on non-GW products, but who goes to game at a GW these days? :P

Re: Computer designed army lists

Only if you make a profit off of it somehow. If you keep it non profit and for public use, then you'd be ok.

For sure. Like I said, if I ever got it done, I'd submit a paper for publishing in a scientific journal.

Re: Computer designed army lists

It's been done, but not for 40k. I'm pretty sure it's been applied to things like stocks, weather, sports, and the military, but it's more of a fun exercise to practice programming and machine learning skills on.

Re: Computer designed army lists

My friend and I were thinking about making a machine learning program that took a lot of data points from competitive games to predict how one list set up would do against the other. A human should be able to predict the outcome by simply glancing at it so it should be doable in theory. Like say, if...
