I'll double check ranges, considering the tanglefields are crowd control more than anything I might leave them 8"

Grey Knights backed by a Spearhead of AdMech Dunecrawlers is actually pretty nasty...

I can believe it
heavy anti-tank has always been GK's weakspot as an army, aside from the slow basic movement

Oh @alphalas we all know that's just lies you're telling yourself
If one is good
6 is better
DOOOOO EEEEEEET

how many Sicaran have you got at the moment??
surely in the interests of balance you should actually have 8, to balance the predators

I don't have any sicarans

also, on the subject of codex power creep - Eldar players are crying already following the second Death Guard faction focus, apparently the death guard have better Battle Focus than the Eldar - obviously they've been practising hard to catch up on the millennia of experience the Eldar have
@alphalas so you need some
although, possibly not actual 6

Sep 08 2017 12:39
@FarseerVeraenthis you do realize DG have had millennia of practice...like...being DG, right? Eldar may live a long time, but they aren't effectively immortal as DG are
(Not that I disagree with you, I'm thinking the DG 'dex is going to be a giant pile of bullshit)

So I ordered a storm eagle kit from China – it was nine dollars, got yesterday, and I already almost have everything completely dewarped
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 08 2017 12:48
:smile: yeah, I was just parroting back some of the crying from the Eldar forum I saw this morning
but my point being, if DG battle focus is that good, and it is really and Eldar "thing" - how powerful is Eldar Battle Focus going to be?!
storm eagle kit sounds good

Eldar will be able to advance 12" and fire everything at a +1 tohit.
:D

Well
Hopefully the creep will continue so by the time my Wolves get a codex they can be back to apex predator status

yeah, now I wish they'd held off on Craftworlds
:tongue:
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe dreams of a return to the glory of the 5e SW codex

As I like to call it
Codex: Space Wolves: The "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" Edition

I'd really like to see a return of Njal's ability to block any psychic power on a 4+

Because 8e is rapidly de-evolving into a race to see who can generate the most mortal wounds
Which, quite frankly, I made noise about being an issue when the concept of mortal wounds was introduced
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Sep 08 2017 13:24
remember when they told us that mortal wounds would be extremely rare and only used for the most powerful attacks? good times

@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 08 2017 15:07
when did they say that... are you sure that wasn't fake news??
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 08 2017 15:33
@CrusherJoe actually I think this was discussed around FoC came out and Inquisitor whatserface had a gun that "ignores invuln" - which is the same as a mortal wound... although, now we have invulnerable invulnerable saves that CAN be taken against Mortal Wounds... for example, plague bearers have their invuln, then they get disgusting, they have two 5+ saves, only one is ignored by Mortals... "8th will streamline things" (see previous share)

Sounds like we should just run avatar/asurmen based aspect footdar and be worse death guard
also eldar rangers are STILL out of stock
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 08 2017 17:18
good job I have about a million of them then
would you like some?? I definitely have spares
(I was thinking of running an Alaitoc Craftworld once upon a time)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Sep 08 2017 18:20
metals or finecast?
also painted or still original
because at this point I'm tempted
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 08 2017 19:29
hmm... all my rangers are metal
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Sep 08 2017 19:35
right, yes, I'm never going to paint all of them... lemme figure out how many I've got, how many I want to keep and then I'll let you know the difference :-)
from here, I have 4 x 430701 // 2 x 430704 // 2 x 430706 // 4 x 430703
plus I have a boxed set of 5 pathfinders, and 11 other painted dudes...
wow, that would be 28 total... yeah, I can't see me needing that many
@WindstormSCR are you UK or elsewhere??
