#3909 I’m leaning no because it’s not actually it’s own datasheet
Thoughts?

I'd say it can't really hurt, and is likely to be helpful as a sub-entry of eisenhorn since the rules for it change so much
just make it an option under Eisen

Their "Bluish Titanium" is also amazing
The whole AMMO metallics line is fantastic from my experience

Airbrush ready, too
Oh, oh, and their Burnt Exhaust Iron? mmmmm
It's so good
Plays well with other paints/inks too
Really I can't say enough good about Ammo by Mig

@WindstormSCR arquebi? against a 4++? Sounds like a bad idea, but if you say so... I've packed my list now and put a vindicare in (ignoring invuls), but I'll try them next time I think. Currently I run... 25 skitarii (15 vanguard) just for weight of dice. I think 45 rad carbine shots per turn should, in theory, cause 10 failed invuls per turn... with potential 2damage. And thats without the rangers. And the invul-ignoring vindicare. And Vanguard wounding on 3's in melee and ruststalkers on 2 when they join in. Heh. Sorry, not sorry clowns.

@alphalas, #3909, I don't think it should be its own entry as you can never add it at army creation, you HAVE to summon it. Maybe you could put an additional stat line on Eisenhorn's entry?

I just have to go through the 2 big FAQs to catch things like leapfrogging... we're still extremely green for 8th and I dont want to give him rules errors that fuck me over ^^

yeah, the big thing is flips only work in movement
and the reason for arquebus is you wound weavers on 3s, punch through armor and get a decent amount of damage in for each failed save

Nov 21 2018 13:06
oh, so if I stand behind cover, he needs to assault AROUND? That is good to know...
With arquebi you need a decent screen tho.. if those get tied up/killed its a pretty hefty loss. I need more skitarii... I think I have like 40 in total now, but like 10+ are equipped with special gear and weapons... maybe once he has enough models to bump up to 750 I can reincorporate another big ranger squad with arquebi

valuable inches gained he might fail or not charge at all, giving me a round to back off, counterassault or a free overwatch

its funny, with assault weapons -1. inherent -1 to hit and agripiina I am as good at shooting in overwatch as in a regular phase...

@WindstormSCR Vallejo has a blue metallic that’s actually decent- I’ll try to get pictures when I’m home (thanksgiving prep has kind of consumed my time)

I just ordered a set of colorshift metallics from greenstuffworld.com
Gotta do something to make the ol' Hellflayer look...warp-y
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 21 2018 17:36
@CrusherJoe I've seen a really nice 'warp' effect by using a white base, then 3-4 light layers (almost a glaze) of colorshift so they mingle and blend
different colorshifts per layer, but each one partially see-through
though I'd think it would work better on a silver backing personally

I really wish inquisitorial acolytes could get a 4+ sv
:(
since I plan to use them mainly narrative, I'm thinking I might just build them for rule of cool using the necro gear and seek opponent permission
i did find these:
which are awesome
bolter frontends and stuff for van saar dudes

Ok all the guard fixes are in and ready for release
Not sure if we want to push it now or wait for ork bugfixes; there’s a fair bit I fixed though so :shipit: if ready

I'm covered in clowny bits. It was a massacre.
2 games, the first one was my list vs... 1 shadowseer, 1 solitair, starweaver, 1 troupe, troupe master.
Starweaver charged, I fell back, shot it to pieces, shot the contents to pieces.
Solitaire charged the vindicare with a fishy charge which I allowed, since he got off one shot, wounded and took of 3 wounds of the solitaire. Got shot off the table afterwards. Only shadowseer left, concede in turn 3.

Next game, different list - out was the shadowseer and the weaver, in 2 more troupes.
Vindicare shoots solitaire, hit, wound, off go 3 wounds. Solitaire charges ruststalkers due to no overwatch... kills 2.. I retaliate and finish the fucker. I use counter-offensive, conqueror protocol and my vanguard stomp a troupe into the dust with 2+ to hit, 3+ to wound. The same that shot a troupe completely of the table a turn before. 2 troupes left without transports in T2 against almost my entire army.

concede.
yep, it went well :P
10 man squads of vanguards with protector/conqueror protocoll are actually quite beastly against T3...

Sounds like it went well!
I/we played a doubles match vs a space wolves blood angels combo and we won 13 : 2 VP's playing the scouring
We played 4 turns but would have tabled if we'd had more time - there was much chatting going on it was friendly :smile:
Obviously the harlequins suits weren't switched on!!
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Nov 21 2018 22:58
about what I expected then
harlequins are surprisingly fragile, even though you wouldn't think so
mostly because they suffer the same issue as most other elite armies, expensive dudes in medium-cost transports, except unlike DW those transports are quite fragile and without them there is no shooting worth writing home about

@Thairne your battle reports make me happy
I love the sound of elf souls screaming to Slaanesh to be consumed in darkness for eternity
