if you can afford it .. buy box for terrain and book from 3rd party LGS with discount, sell the rest on ebay ... break even at least.
I can't so I'm just gonna grab the book
Price Van-Saint

so could pick up a box for 80 quid from a 3rd party LGS e-tailer
@Kohato lol yup, can't forget the prison colony tax
You picked a faction for KillTeam yet @Kohato

I'm hoping Crons will have flayed ones and maybe tomb blades/ destroyers :)
Would have gone RG ... but no Jump troops yet on any faction
maybe Nids ... now just to find a few cheap Lictors
mental that they made the cut

Jul 12 2018 14:54
of course Lictors made it in... they are the first strike "Kill Teams" the 'nids use to scuot out a planet for consumption...

it makes sence from a lore perspective, but from a balance perspective?

Still going to go GK for kill team, maybe they won’t be dumpster tier there...

“You get three models, but they have a 2++ so good luck!”

I could roll 3 x 1's in a flash
this is part of the reason I have no problem fielding guardians when they didn't get a save from bolters - I can't make a 3+, so I can't make a 5+, so I might as well not bother...!!

Jul 12 2018 15:27
If I just need to not roll a 1 it’s all I will roll :p
There was a board in our main game area where we kept track of how often I failed 3” charges...it was comical in the last campaign

I'm curious to see how DW pans out
there is a serious chance they'll be violently OP because the vet squads are already designed for exactly this type of stuff

Jul 12 2018 15:36
Yalp! I kind of hope so, I’m about to actually paint my DW as different hockey teams, would be nice to use them there too

I had a guy with 3 sang guard charging my company commander -- we're both out of CP -- 3" charge.
He proceeds to slap down snake eyes.
We just looked up at each other and laughed.

Drukhari faction focus is live
and yes, that is a quite funny roll... 3" charge is pretty much guaranteed... obviously not!!
drukhari only get two choices - wyches or kabalites - not sure how I feel about that
wyches vs a tyranid warriror
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Jul 12 2018 15:52
I'm pretty sure enough wyches can murder a tyranid warrior

I can't imagine that warriors or lictors will be cheap to include.
I'm just hoping I get scorpions and maybe banshees.

I'm hoping it isn't a reskin of shadow wars

Looks like an all new-ish game, but it’s possible
