Ultramarines vs Dark Eldar (me as the marines), DE gets turn 1, 1 shots the Redemptor and then volleys of -4 AP wipe out more than half of whats left, game over before I even get a turn
the cover system needs returning back to how it was in 7th

gotta love that poison :)
and dark lances
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 14:19
the redemptor died like shit
13 wounds, he hit me with 1 vehicles shooting all at -4 ap so no save at all on the dread and he did exactly 13 wounds
it then exploded and fucked 2 of my own units

we've re-racked and I've got back to death guard
Joe Beddoe

DE are especially filthy vs vehicles, even more so if you only have one. Dark (g)Lances are murderous.

@skonk that sounds like my recent battle, although, significantly worse... I think there was a post/comment somewhere else that whoever gets first turn can win the game in one go
worst thing for me was, I had first turn, he rolled to "steal the initiative", failed, I suggested that he could up a CP to re-roll thinking it would be fine - he rolled a 6, stole the initiative, won the game
:cry:
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 14:46
it just feels like we need those 4+ ruin saves back
the DG game is going better
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Aug 02 2017 14:53
yeah, cover is a little unusual, although, surely you'd have got +1 for being in cover, which would have given you a 6+ "hail mary" save, as opposed to no save at all...

Sorry to interrupt, but what is the difference between the regular 40k catalog and the mobile format?
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 15:01
different chap does the mobile version, i think its designed to just require less clicks to build your list
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 02 2017 15:02
The mobile format is built to be mobile friendly; the regular 40k is built to be able to be used for list building for events/tournaments
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 15:21
So with my DG, the DE player has given up after turn 2
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 02 2017 15:45
i heard something similar, simon. i think it was from a recent event that about half of games, the player who had the first turn won by tabling their opponent
which suggests that a lot of people are going for glass cannon builds to try and deal as big of an alpha strike as possible
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 02 2017 16:20
So I know this is something to open an issue about, but I've got a friend that plays AdMech and these are pics he sent me

Note the lack of stats
Is this a known issue? Or should I open an issue?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 02 2017 16:21
turn off categories under advanced settings?
oh wait, thats not our repo.
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 02 2017 16:22
It's mobile right?
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 02 2017 16:22
yeah
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 02 2017 16:22
Yeah that's not us
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Aug 02 2017 16:23
the 'Faction category gives it away

why do all Duncan's recipies for white include ulthuan grey >.<
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 02 2017 19:32
I'm actually coming around to the redemptor. Just have to remove the beer belly armor lol
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 19:32
White models are never actually painted white
otherwise where can go with the highlights?
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Aug 02 2017 19:33
cos the slight blue stops it from looking grey
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 19:33
Ulthuan is the closet to white... non-white in the range
Yeh the Redemptor looks ok
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Aug 02 2017 19:33
also..ever heard of the phrase "whiter than white" used by washing powder companies, well they use a slight amount of blue dye in there products which makes it slightly blue, which actually looks more white than white does
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 19:33
but i played with it today
and it got shot by 1 DE ravager... and died
did exactly 13 damage at -4 and i lifted it off the board without actually getting to use it
Alex Baur
@acebaur
Aug 02 2017 19:34
Unlucky
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 19:34
id say it was unlucky had I failed some saves
but it has none against that
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Aug 02 2017 19:39
reason i'm bitching is because that's the one grey i don't have lol
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 19:47
lol
just take some white
and put a little bit of eshin grey and a tiny bit of a bright blue in there
tekton
@tekton
Aug 02 2017 21:25
i've been enjoying put my first redemptor together, kind of curious if grey knights will get them, too...
@skonk I've actually found that a solo redemptor seems to have that happen a lot; not sure why (and only across 6 games so far)
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 02 2017 22:19
I use Reaper Master Series and Vallejo mostly. Reaper's Leather White is a good off-white, as is their Misty Gray
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 22:28
tbh i had the same issue when i got my first set of the new DG models, with the drone
had 1 on the table, died like shjit
shit^
now i have 4
and when i run 2 to 4 at a time they all seem to stay alive for ages
the redemptor is actually pretty cheap on points so easy to run a few
not cheap on the wallet tho :)
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 02 2017 22:41
The only one I've played against was like 34x points
That's not what I call cheap LOL
And I had a devil of a time killing it, though tbh my head wasn't in the game and I made some really glaring tactical mistakes early in the game my opponent capitalized on to max affect
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 22:48
It's barely over 200 points for the dread
regardless of configuration
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 02 2017 23:02
Oh wait you said Redemptor. I was talking about a Repulsor. Oops.
tekton
@tekton
Aug 02 2017 23:02
repulsors are kind of cheap for how many shots they bring to the table...
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Aug 02 2017 23:03
The volume of fire they put out is scary.
tekton
@tekton
Aug 02 2017 23:04
which is why I'll have two ;)
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 23:07
heh
i have one on order
I dont want to go mad with the SM stuff cos I'm not sure how often i'll use em since i have like... ALL the chaos
tekton
@tekton
Aug 02 2017 23:09
i'm about to play a chaos army with my tau tonight i think...it doesn't look good for me :P
James
@skonk
Aug 02 2017 23:11
yeh Tau are struggling a bit
