It has all the things I love but too much of it, because I have 13 droppers but only 8 anchors.
That...well that won't work.

just a single russ and pask?
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 00:27
That's exactly how many tanks can get orders, so, yes.
It's shockingly effective.
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 00:28
making sure i was reading it right :)
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 00:38
looks decent, that's a lot of plasma guns :P
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:01
That's the idea
Love The Drop
Especially when it's drop plasma

Apr 14 2018 01:02
hopefully the vulture pulls its weight in tanking
should be enough units to help keep target saturation high enough to turn 4+
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:04
I should be able to drop on to objectives as well as kill everything that needs killin'
I won't leave the house without the Vulture
I :heart: it
Every game it delivers in some way
It either attracts fire because the idea of getting leafblowered off the board by it is scary
Or it's left alone and then it leafblowers units off the table
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 01:06
i figured, it's pretty scary like that
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:07
And the best part is, the whole list is technically mono-codex
So bring on that FAQ GW
Let's shut the soup shit down and get on with it

Apr 14 2018 01:08
my steel legion is waiting to find out...
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:08
mmmhmmm
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 01:09
then again, i also wish they had a mortar heavy weapons team for steel legion...
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:09
Agreed
Steel Legion needs some model love
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 01:11
and the one model with the missile launcher and the other with the ammo in the troop kit doesn't help much...i think one has a grenade launcher as well :P hoping people will be ok with them all just being "proxies" for flashlights
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:11
The only people that have to be okay with it are the TOs
And since you happen to know one of the WGC TOs :)
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 01:12
and i'm pretty sure the frontline guys will be ok (i'm going to socal open and will probably register for LVO this time)
@CrusherJoe imagine that ;)
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:13
Yeah I plan on going to LVO or Adepticon next year
tekton
@tekton
Apr 14 2018 01:18
i'm still debating on trying to host one here, near-ish disneyland...just finding a good time of year that doesn't conflict with other things
few people recommended january since LVO has moved to february- plus it's a bit of a "quiet season" for disneyland these days if people wanted to make a vacation out of it
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Apr 14 2018 01:21
I understand
I would prefer us to not be in August
But we have to work with what we've got
tekton

these foreworld Razorback Assault Cannon Turret are not the funnest things to work with...
