Re: Uh-oh FAQ questions

The carnifex isn't as nasty as the hive tyrant with 2 pairs of devourers. 12 shots at BS4 S5, rerooling to hit and wound.

Re: US 2009 Grand tournaments are gone.

There have been a lot of comments on this on BoLS and I'm generally surprised that most people are glad that this happened. The argument is that GW was never really fully supportive or excited about...

Re: Battle report+pics: 1750 Eldar vs Orks

Yes, Doom isn't listed as a Psychic Shooting Attack and so it doesn't face any restrictions from being in close combat. Same thing goes for Fortune and Guide.

Re: Reaper Exarch Weapons

That's not necessarily true. Just make sure you have enough anti-tank elsewhere and then you'll love the option of firing 2 S8 AP3 shots at a high BS to take down tougher monstrous creatures (which...

Re: Going tankhunting with hawks

The difficulty with swooping hawks is that at the end of the day, they die just as quickly as a firewarrior, but are twice the price.

I love swooping hawks and they have a special place in my...

Re: Tyranid Codex?

This actually makes me angry. A lot of the changes in here are good and I think what they did with some of the bio-morphs is cool and fun.
However, the points costs for everything was bumped up and...

1500 Point Swarmy Nids

Hey Everyone,
I've been playing around in 5th edition and tweaking my list and so far it's pretty unstoppable. However, I've figured I could add to it's record with a couple minor tweaks. I don't...

Re: Tyranid anti-orks army 1500p

I like your approach to taking down the orks but I think you might have some difficulty since you don't have enough models to stand up to them.

You already said you'd be expecting lots of orks on...

Re: Venom Cannon and Anti-Tank

I've also had much success with the VC in 4th but I've recently found more success with 3 Zoanthropes with Warp Blast. They're T4, I know, but with the new shielding rules, you can get cover saves...

Re: thousand sons vs. eldar: what to do?

I agree.

The advantages of Thousand Sons is their inferno bolts and their 4+ invulnerable save. However, they have a 3+ save like any other marine, so your best bet is to just keep them rolling...

Re: Holy [i]Klkn[/i] a Flyrant?

1500 Mixed Swarm with Battle Report

Re: Wraithlord against orks? Is this a potentially good idea?

The configuration I use for Orks is a Wraithlord with Scatter Laser and Shuricannon with 2 flamers. It's purpose is solely horde control. 7 S6 shots hitting on 3's at range, with two flamers up close...

Re: Wraithsight: A first look at fifth.

I can't believe no one has mentioned this:
Dedicated transports can transport any unit as long as it's deployed either containing the unit for which it was purchased, or empty, during deployment!

Re: Falcon Viability in 5th edition (again!??!)

What's really unfortunate is that our skimmers only get their cover save benefit for moving fast if they move 'flat-out' so the falcon will fair better than the poor fire prism. I'm hoping that the...

Re: When is it a good idea to use Reapers?


Besides, reaper launchers are heavy weapons so transports are not really going to help. Plus, can they even take a wave serpent?
