Still, the use of :shipit: needs to be promoted.

I see 3.5 DC Dreads
You do have a problem
You need more DC Dreads
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 14:53
Lol
Magnetizing hence why you only see torsos
4 dco, chaplain, 2 librarian(one can swap to furioso), 1 furioso, one DW ven, one DW vanilla
Scratch that, it's 2 DW vanillas
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 15:02
Sounds like fun to me
I only have 1, but he has a switchable weapon so not all bad... Are dreads any good on the battlefield? I've only played small points with my Deathwatch atm so I've not used it
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 15:07
Blood angels and space wolves in dreadpods yes, regular marines not really
But that's just because were getting like seven attacks on the charge
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 16:55
Lol just found another BA furioso
That brings me up to 12 dreads and 4 contemptors
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 17:15
I see, well, I might try it out for back field fire support and see how it goes :-)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 17:26
Honestly I feel predators to do a better job than dreadnoughts
In the fire support role I mean
Don't get me wrong I love the old hellfire and the Mortis - but they don't seem to cut it anymore
All 16 dreads
I love giant stompy robots – that's why I have six knights. I just wish dreadnoughts were better
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 18:12
Yeah, Deathwatch don't have access to predators... Dreadnoughts or razorbacks for us...
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 18:21
Oh yeah, you're deathwatch
Hellfire dreads then - just be careful with them
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 18:29
Hellfire...?
You mean with two guns...?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 18:42
Yeah - hellfire was what they called the old lascanon missile combo, but really began began to mean any dread not with a gun and a missile launcher
Mortise is specifically two twinned weapons
Mortis*
The old rifleman dread is the quintessential example of the old Mortis
Bonus points if you know why they call it the rifleman dreadnought
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 02 2017 19:22
I also love giant robots :p I have 3 knights, 2 storm surges and just finished a lord of skulls :)
Which btw is heavy as all hell. That thing is a solid model
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 19:30
Super, yah, I got a venerable Dread as part of death masque but it didn't come with the missile launcher option...
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 19:55
yay, back on my PC - reseated the GPU and tightened my heatsink a little, now to update the driver and see how long it lasts this time :-)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 20:06
I have six knights, a taunar, four riptides, two rvarna, and I think that's it for the stompy robots
No takers on the rifleman trivia?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 02 2017 20:31
that is quite a LOT of stompy robots... (and no, I feel like I should know but I don't and I can;t be bothered to look it up..)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 02 2017 20:38
Lol
Battletech/mech warrior - one of the mechs had arms that were just 2 gun barrels each - the rifleman

in other news, Iyanden is up, probably buggy as hell but it is done (and my computer hasn't crashed yet...)
