hoping for a similar thing to bring back a fully dead unit of necrons ... to buff the RP thing without going back to a 7th ed FNP or Death Guard thing

Mar 12 2018 09:26
There is a huge difference between what necrons had in 7th and what dg have in 8th
Necrons could get a 4+ reanimation, army wide with ghost arcs (which were always used) giving the ability to bring back dead warriors ontop
there is a world of difference between army wide 4+ and 5+
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 09:38
The 8th edition version reanimation is way better, both for the necron player and the enemy... right up to the moment the unit is wiped out entirely. But until it's entirely wiped out it has the potential to keep models alive way better than the 7th ed reanimation due to being able to roll for the dead models every turn. But as the person attacking the necrons it doesnt feel as frustrating as it did in 7th because you do actually kill models. The issue seems to be that the damage output of the necrons is on the low side (which could be due to weapon power or unit costs making it so you dont have enough stuff on the table to deal the damsge you need)
I think we can assume they will get points reductions; since every other codex has
and I think we can assume some of the weapon profiles will be imroved
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 12 2018 09:39
it's the same mechanic though ... just debating numbers here - Necrons had a base 5+ and "Could get" 4+ with a huge tax in taking certain units in a formation, DG has a base 5+ and can get 4+ with strats and abilities ... I see no difference
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 09:39
so more models on the table + slightly better weapons + strats + dynasty traits etc... should up the damage output enough
ive played against and as necrons in 7th and 8th
and ive played as death guard and against death guard in 7th and 8th
necrons in 7th had exponentially better survivability in 7th than deathguard do in 8th

if they were to really want to mix it up .. it 'could' be tied to leadership again ... so having a lord or cryptek nearby to auto RP some units ... while those outside of 'Synapse' just get up on 6's

@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 12 2018 10:15
I hope that isn't the way it goes btw ... I like the RP the way it is .. but it needs "something" to help the turn one "Focus fire on the heavy destroyers so they never get back up again and then my other units can rampage freely around the board" alpha strike
which happens every game

Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 12 2018 10:21
the problem being thus far that you don't ... 20 warriors and some immortals are not going to take down a dread, repulsor, stormtalon etc.
RP cost is factored into a lot of stuff inflating the cost ... so you really feel the pain when an Elite unit bites the dust
that said ... I did have LOTS of fun tarpitting a Lord of Skulls with scarabs while my Stalker shot chunks out of it ... didn't win for long .. but it was fun to try

Why? It can't fall back to the Index option of a unit it didn't have?
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 12 2018 10:27
But the unit itself existed then
And had options
I get what you’re saying
But consistency is to give it all options because the options existed for the LSS; not that BA didn’t have access to the LSS
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 10:33
It's one of the many issues the DC has thrown up; it makes no distinction for whether you could or couldn't use a unit in the index. It just says if it had options in the index and don't exist in the codex then you can use those options. So since 8th edition has now given BA permission to use the unit, the DC allows for that unit to also be loaded up with the index options.

1CP to stand a character (not C'tan) back up with 1 wound
1CP to make Quantum shields 1 point better

in 7th people tended to assume if you had a jump pack you ignored all or some of the penalties for charging units in cover for example
but the FAQ came out and said no, you take ALL the penalties
so in 7th you gain almost no benefit from jump other than rerolls
so in 8th i could totally see the intention being for it to only work in the movement phase
cos thats like how it worked in 7th
but i could also see it being intended to work everywhere; but to me the rules are pretty clear now that its listed in the movement phase section so thats where it works

James
@skonk

you could use all 3 rolls to add models to the same unit?

not each spyder unit

Mar 12 2018 16:28
"Return a scarb to the depleted unit"
Meaning the unit you rolled for
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 16:28
it says "on a 2+ ONE OF THOSE UNIUTS"
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 12 2018 16:29
no
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 16:29
its worded in a way that purposly seperates the roll from the unit you rolled it for
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 12 2018 16:29
"On a 2+ one of those canoptek spyders units within 6" of the unit being rolld for unleashes reinforcements:"
Meaning the scarab rolls are separate.
At least that's how I take it
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 16:29
actually its more odd
you roll for a unit, but it says a unit within 6 inches of the unit you rolled for...
uh
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 12 2018 16:30
On a 1, any spyder unit within 6" of the scarab being rolled for will take a MW
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 16:30
oh fuck
yeh im reading it wrong
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 12 2018 16:30
on a 2+, any spyder unit within 6" of the scarab being rolled for unleashes a new scarab base to the depleted unit
Is how i'm understanding it
so it's a buff and a cautionary nerf at the same time. One spyder can replenish multiple scarab units
but also take multiple MWs
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 12 2018 16:31

James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 16:32
im still not clear on how this works, the wording is shite
im still not sure if regardless of how many dice you roll, whether you can only heal up 1 unit or 1 unit for every dice you rolled a 2+ on and if its that if the same unit can be healed by more than once of those 2+ rolled dice
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 12 2018 16:33
each scarab unit that is below starting strength and within 6" of any spyders rolls a d6. on a 1, one of the spyders takes a MW, on a 2+ the scarab unit gets a model back
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 12 2018 16:33
Looks like hovering may have been changed too. Now you measure to hull or base, whichever is closer.
wasn't that only hull before?
James
@skonk
Mar 12 2018 16:34
cos it just says "a" unit of scrabs
it doesnt say "the" unit, as in the one you rolled for
it reads to me like if you rolled 3 dice for 3 units of scarabs and all rolled a 2+, you could heal the same unit thrice, 1 unit twice and 1 unit once, or each of the 3 units once each
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 12 2018 16:35
Gonna side on the no for that interpretation
"Return a scarab swarm to <the> depleted unit"
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 12 2018 16:36
"on a 2+ one of those spyders within 6" of the unit being rolled for..."
implying the rolls happen separately for each unit of scarabs

True, but 18" range on an already 8" diameter model
that's a ginormous range (not that that changed, it has always been a gigantor range)

That's why quantium now specifies mortal wounds are excluded.
1CP: Subtract 1 from quantium shielding rolls.

Me too m8
I've said it all over, the broad strokes little changes make it awesomeness
And the options to play a few different ways will keep opponents guessing... Rather than just focus stuff to death in case it comes back
Still no sign of the changes to RP if any

1) I also missed wraiths being able to fall back and shoot/charge. That makes it less of a clear choice ... that beamer looks sexy.
2) Reddit is shitting on the changes, and I love it. It's pretty clear most of them have never played necrons in any way other than across the table from them.
