Super sad about the Farseer! I am not sure how to deal with that problem :/ Maybe movement + running as suggested.


First, you should put the Wraithguard and Fire Dragons in those Wave Serpents. What you want to do with the Webway won't work because the range of the D-Scythe is 8" and you have to be at least 9" away from a unit when you arrive.


I disagree. The warlock is capable of moving a unit forward in the psychic phase. This is what enables the Wraithguard alpha strike.


Same with the Fire Dragons. Use them in the second Wave Serpent to give them mobility across the battlefield. A 5 man squad will die after it shoots one time, if you Webway deploy them. In fact, on principle, if you are going to use Webway Assault max out the squad size that is going through the Webway.



Does that not happen every time a five man fire dragon squad emerges on the field? I totally agree with your second point. If only I had more fire dragons...


With that being said, if you really want to Webway Assault, then I would suggest ditching Illic and the Warlock and taking a ten man Guardian Defender squad instead. (I realize you may have to purchase this unit, but it's only one purchase) Then combine all your jetbikes into one squad and send them through the Webway.

If you want to send two units through, then also send the Shining Spears with them. Using these two units instead, you can still keep the strategy you are trying to do. Also, they can all shoot when they arrive, then charge if you want to sacrifice them like you said.



I think the problem is that those units hardly have any impact on the alpha strike. Their gear is only shuriken catapults and they are rubbish in close combat. Is attempting to do lots of damage early game ineffective?


 

Those new Guardians you bought can stay in the backfield with the Wraithlords, filling a similar role as Illic if you give them a Brightlance or Missile Launcher.

A definite possibility! Would have to rejig force org.

Hopefully they do bring it back.

But I thought they had an email/message floating around saying that so far they have been unsuccessful in recreation the mold?

Maybe that was just my imagination and everything will be just dandy later dine the line.

My typical list, which has started to loose now, is 3x10 man tac squads with all the plasma they can get, walking up the table in a line, with Azrael, Ezekiel and a Dark Shroud to back them up. Then my front line is a vanilla landraider with 5 deathwing knights, and a dark talon, then finally my back line is a 10 man dev squad with 4 plasma cannons, a lieutenant and apothecrary. I do try to get the tac squads near my devs early game so that almost all my units can get the bonus' from all my characters and the dark shroud, which works out well as my opponents typically shoot at my landraider first and fail to hit due to the dark shroud, then I bomb them with the talon and advance with the tac squads under the crushing fire of my devs. Plus the tacs have enough plasma to handle themselves as well.

I'll see if I can get something worked out, thankfully already have blender downloaded.

I wonder if they will ever be able to fix the mold or it is just lost to the warp forever.

I use a program called blender.  It is free.

Unfortunatly i can't sell the models or plans because it would breach gw... but also put me in jeopardy at work where in print them. I'm allowed to print my own for my own purpose but i can't sell etc.

If you go to a website called thingyverse and type 40k in the search bar you can find all sorts of models. 

I used one that was a rhino and all i did was build a top for it to resemble a repressor... and it's petty close.

Rhino model i use

I made my own but here is a dozer blade some one has made for the repressor.
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2541799

If you got those printed... i bet all you would have to do is make a top for it out of what ever you like and there you go... a repressor.

I dont know if this world work because it's for 6mm 40l. But here is a repressor that someone had made.  I'm not sure if can be scaled up to 28mm.

They do get pretty scary turn 1 movement this edition, and slightly a littler more effective with the vehicle changes.

For 3d printers can you use any program to make the model or does it have to be done with one specifically for 3d pritners?

If you were able to sell them I wouldn't mind buying a pair of repressor recasts off of you.

I am pretty good with 3d modelling. So I've actually 3d printed  mine.

I just about have 4 repressors now. Ill try to organise a pic of them.

But yes... dominions in repressors charging 12 plus d6 free move then 12 d6 move again is brutal when you can shoot out of them hitting on 4s.

Put 2 cannonesses in them to and you hit on 3s.

They will certainly be a fire magnet.
