ooooh I get it.. Does indeed make sense. This is almost like real software dev... things that look fine turn out wrong and then make oyu go "ah shit, of course!"

@FarseerVeraenthis i just played it twice to be honest, 1 win and 1 loss... I like them but I feel like they cost a lot, I had success when building a kill team specifically to destroy one single enemy unit

i'm actually curious to see what it is now
see if its a fake, or something out of context

Trying to pull up the picture – I've seen it in a Facebook group, but there was never any official follow up anywhere

oh i think i found it
all the models are green for some reason
probably to hide the fact theyre not actually deathwatch
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 20 2017 10:19
Yes that one

But when I saw it pop up initially, I went and did some digging- I didn't find the original source, but it was obviously not FW
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 20 2017 10:27
i expect its either a game store's way of house ruling FW into deathwatch, or somebody trolling for kicks
google thinks it's black ops 3, so idk /shrug

seems like the official forge world facebook posted it saying something like"these would look good pained as deathwatch"
Jon Kissinger

Did they? Because I never actually saw it on there

I suspect the models are green because it is a "Imperial transmission" and they are all washed out green... Otherwise that is quite funny :-)
as for my Deathwatch @Crowbar90 my record is not exactly stella, I've found they don't work too well in low points games because you only need a couple of models to fail their saves (if they get any) and it seriously harms your firepower... Having said that, my last game I tabled my opponent (in Turn 6) through a combination of a number of lucky shots and lucky saves. You definitely need to tailor your army to your opponent hence, even though they have a lot of flexibility, I don't think they will be good at tournaments...

yeah, in the comments they're like "no official rules, just thought it would be cool"

@FarseerVeraenthis @Crowbar90 heh - my one main game I ran with my deathwatch was a 1500 pt game - strat command w/ Aquila KT, Corvus, SoS in a Raz, and custodes- that game was interesting vs sallies using the dismount-shoot-remount force

@Crowbar90

@FarseerVeraenthis Yeah, in low points they can't really shine, points costs are really high. My last game was a low points one (550 deathwatch + 450 admech vs 1000 tyr). We won it, but only because we have been really lucky with tactical objectives!
@alphalas that sounds nice! My list for that game was a Black Spear, formed by Captain w/Thief of Secrets, Ven Dread with Deathwind drop pod and an Aquila KT (2 shotguns, 2 bolters, frag cannon, blackshield, 1 vanguard vet w/power sword)
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 20 2017 11:09
Yeah that list was interesting- custodes and the corvus ended up doing most of the work - sisters were kinda meh tbh - but that was also just one squad of old sisters against an army with no psykers
I was actually the only one with a psyker lol
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 20 2017 11:17
hehehe :-) my last game was 800 points CAD (our "Tale of Gamers" doesn't allow formations until round 4), I had Nihilus, 2 x Veteran squads, one in a razorback, one in a drop pod, 3 Vanguard Vets and a captain. the drop pod squad included 2 x shotguns, 1 x frag cannon, 1 x flamer and a Sarge with a combi-melta . The melta 1-shotted a land raider <-- this was a game changer :-)
deep striking the Vanguard Vets (with Storm shields) is a really good way of distracting people, but they do take a lot of fire as a result!!
alphalas, how did the Corvus go?? that is my purchase for the next round of my Tale, I want epic launching assault from the flyer action #becauseruleofcool

I ran mega-dakka like I do my storm ravens - worked great
Anyone else pre-ordering the sisters and custodes EPUB's or should I?

I'm not planning on ordering them.... so if you've got some spare pennines, go wild :-)

I'm tempted to get the Box... although I'd have a hard time using them with either DA or CM.. it just doesn't... fit
sisters? Yes. Custodes? Uh...

Is there a unit with a good use of the collective function? I keep meaning to have a look but never go around to it.
