CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe looks over the hobby news of the morning
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe eyes the FW heresy-era Banana Captain and Banana Spears
Joe Beddoe

Feb 28 2018 14:45
Okay
I know some of you play AoS/30K
But it's been a sad few weeks for 40K players when the announcement of a single shield-captain and some shiny new spears counts as major news
What is even more sad is the next release we have to look forward to for 40K fills me with a sick dread

I collect Grey Knights, Tau and Necrons. Out of that, I think Necrons are playable (I just won't play Dreadknight or Commander/Drone spam). And I wanted to start Thousand Sons (not Tzaangors). It seems I should stick to my Salamanders plan for the close future :<
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 14:59
@amis92 I hope by "Salamanders plan" you mean "purchase a Salamander Command Tank, along with a Trojan Support Vehicle and a Shadowsword"
Here's my reason for dread
The local meta, during 7th, and especially during it's death throes
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Feb 28 2018 15:00
No, I actually like primarines, especially those new-centurion-style robots with huge flamers :D
And what is Salamander Command Tank anyway? :o
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:03
FW guard tank
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:03
Sorry
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:03
gives +1 to hit to a single guard unit
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:03
Salamander Command Vehicle
It coupled with the Trojan makes a shadowsword hit on 3s with re-roll
It makes it a...surprisingly effective unit
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:04
so you stick that and the trojan recovery vehicle (reroll missed hits) beside a shadowsword
with that, it’s actually almost worth double-sponsoning a shadowsword
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Feb 28 2018 15:05
Ahhh. Well, by Salamanders plan I meant just collecting anything that has flamer/melta and primaris keyword xD
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:05
so you have the main gun, 4 lascannons, and 10 heavy bolters
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:06
It usually deletes 2 tanks and one infantry squad per turn
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:06
oh yeah, also, never charge a shadowsword.
unless you can kill it in the charge
because thanks to the crush them stratagem, baneblade chassis tanks are actually quite effective in cc
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 28 2018 15:07
yeah, its like firing a battle cannon in melee
i thought crush them only worked on your own turn?
hurriedly finds codex
oh no, youre right. but you have to use it at the start of the charge phase
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:11
yeah it doesn’t say in your charge phase
yup
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 28 2018 15:12
pop that and Defensive Gunners, and youre laughing
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:13
mmmmhm
pretty much always chage russes, never baneblades
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:14
Don't forget if they are chaos pop Vengeance for Cadia! on top of those two

I’m looking forward to Tau announcements, they’re my second army and all (behind GK)- but I’m also not expecting much anymore :(
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:15
So long as you're not one of those Tau players
It's those Tau players that have me anxious about the upcoming release

tekton
@tekton
Feb 28 2018 15:18
I have one to put together and a storm surge on the way- as of right now they’re just going to be show pieces
Two ghostkeels have been the backbone of my army for 8th while I wait for the quad cyclic commanders to drop

You Can't Have Manslaughter without Laughter.gif
That was my emotional progression playing against Codex: Riptide
And without fail those Tau players were so smug about it
That's what made the cleaver come out
So while I respect y'all's life choices in playing Tau...just know I have some emotional scarring that I've been dealing with LOL
And -- this is nothing against any of you (so don't take offense, please!) but one of the reasons I've enjoyed 8th so much has it's been a relatively Tau-free existence
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 28 2018 15:26
mine hasnt... i have fresh disdain for them
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe highfives @GenWilhelm
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 28 2018 15:26
and by "them" i mean the drone/commander spammers
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:26
Oh wait, you mean you've been suffering a fish infestation?
Yes.
See? Those are those Tau players
The GF is making a tournament shirt for me to celebrate the Tau codex release

Feb 28 2018 15:28
hey, you can't blame the guys for settling on the one good thing in an index to try and eke out an existence ... I feel that pain, playing warrior blob spam and leaving all my elites and fun toys in the box
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:29
Dude a friend of mine played a game against one of those that had 72 drones. Who the fuck even owns 72 drones?

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:31
And honestly @CloverFox hats off to you my man for amassing that collection
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe can't say a damn thing. He bought an entire Scions battalion, new on sprue, for $100 Saturday.
Jon Kissinger

@GenWilhelm
Feb 28 2018 15:32

Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:32

CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe blinks

@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:35

Joe Beddoe

I disagree sir. It was hot, stinking gargabe

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Feb 28 2018 15:36

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:36
hot stinking garbage
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Feb 28 2018 15:36
i played 8 commanders, 60 drones, 20 pathfinders, and 2 y'vharas (this was about 4k a side) cos my mate was bragging about his cheese levels, turns out he was bringing the australias tank which he thought was shit hot, i felt bad as i muched through his primaris force without loosing a single commander, and i just ignored the austrais
CrusherJoe @CrusherJoe EYES his fingers.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:37
@GenWilhelm yes, but that was the ONLY thing it had going for it
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:37
Yeah, @CloverFox that'll do it
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Feb 28 2018 15:38

Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe

@tekton
Feb 28 2018 15:40
I'm not sure I'll be all that far behind pretty soon here...esp if I ever got the bases done for the ion drones
CloverFox
@CloverFox
Feb 28 2018 15:41
i got them back in 6th (maybe 5th?) when tau were garbage and no one used drones so they sat on sprue and i bought a lot of peoples bulk armies

@CrusherJoe
Feb 28 2018 15:42
Hm
Now that I think about it
Tau players and SW players had a lot in common in 7th
I still visit the Thunderwolf Kennels -- aka, "The Saddest Place on Earth"
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Feb 28 2018 15:43
that makes sense ... my local Tau player is the SW player also
