Re: Reinventing the Necrons

You do. Penetrating hits override Gauss.



The Dark Eldar codex hasn't been updated since 2nd or 3rd edition. You need three Fire Prisms with LOS to the target to get an AP 3 attack, and that's...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

My bad.



I meant in terms of strength/AP and the fact that it can hurt things it couldn't normally by rolling a 6.



They also do less, and are easier to do away with. Don't forget that...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

Well, this is rich. You're complaining that your basic troops can glance a Land Raider.



They're only barely less survivable than Terminators, and there's scads of them, so I'm not sure what...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

If I'm not mistaken, we've already gone over that. A goodly number of folk think its balanced by Phase Out. Others think that this is a Cop Out (you can guess who's in this category.)

IMHO, its...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

You do not *need* Ballistics Skill 5 heavy support options. Nobody gets that. ::)

If its not good enough the way it is and it doesn't deserve to be any better, then it needs to be made cheaper. ;)

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

You should know by now, that is never a good enough answer for me. It ranks right up there with "Because I said so."

I don't particularly care what else they do. The way it works doesn't make...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

So it would seem. If it makes a difference, you might notice that Living Metal is particularly effective against the weapons of the enemy the Necrons fought when they were still capable of evolving...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

Too static for my tastes. I prefer Railheads, myself. However, I do like to keep a twin-fusion Shas'vre in reserves for surprise flank-and-smash attacks. He's useless for this purpose thanks to...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

I assume you mean 'sheer' power. :P The meltagun's a good armour penetrator for a reason, mind. Especially if it ranks in the same category as a Vanquisher Cannon.



What about Lasguns?...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

I'm not so sure what the idea is behind making melta weapons ineffective. In fact, I'd expect them to be the only thing that was effective, given the general idea.

If it can slosh around the...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

As long as warriors cannot be upgraded to have heavy or special weapons, I do not see a problem with gauss as it is. If the weapon options of warriors were to change, then I'd agree with you, but at...

The point was that they can kill anything on the table before upgrades. If you don't see a problem with that, then there isn't much point trying to convince you otherwise...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

It seems that some clearing up is in order.

Things I want:

1. Gauss removed or revamped for Warriors.
2. No Phase Out.
3. No Living Metal.
4. Better elites choices. Really, Flayed Ones are...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

And leave it at that. If you want it to be tougher than that, I suggest making it a Superheavy vehicle.

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

Yes. I should be able to build a balanced list that will have a 50/50 win/loss rate against other players of similar skill, that has a composition I like.

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

Hitting on sixes is hardly a reliable method.



Which aren't needed to fight anything else. What if my anti-tank is based around Fire Dragons, backed up by something else to deal with skimmers?...

Re: Reinventing the Necrons

That's an excellent point, actually. So there you have it. Basic troops tougher than Terminators against infantry.

How much of an army is/should be infantry? Most of it, usually.
