General Discussion / Re: 8th Edition Marks of Chaos...
« on: August 15, 2017, 05:31:26 AM »
Agreed. I miss Death Guard bikes with T6.  I do feel that Marks should do something but it looks like the specific units get those abilities built in anyway. Now it's a means of thematic list building.

General Discussion / command point / detachment thoughts?
« on: August 15, 2017, 04:37:44 AM »
How are you all finding command points? I'm seeing lots of battalion detachments but not the special ones like vanguard or outrider. I am wondering if it is because they give reduced CP or because they are too specific in their role? I take a battalion at the moment because it is closer to the old combined-arms detachment that I am used to, not just because I'm waiting for the Death Guard codex to pad out my unit options. But I also take it because it is giving me +3 CP. Are CP being overrated because it's the new thing?

That's my problem. They don't look right next to the old ones.

Discussion: Chaos Space Marines / Larger Plague Marines (Dark Imperium)
« on: August 13, 2017, 05:56:21 AM »
Something I haven't seen mentioned anywhere is the size of the new plague marines from the Dark Imperium box set. They are Primaris in size and larger than the regular models. Larger to the point that they don't look good mixed with the old ones. Does anyone know if this is going to be the new size for them or has GW just done this for the box set?

Discussion: Officio Assassinorum / Re: Thoughts on Assassins in 8th

Despite seeing people talking about taking vindicare assassins to take down the characters, I have yet to see anyone bothering to take any type of Imperial assassin. Too many other cool things to choose from.

General Discussion / Re: Power Level over Points?
« on: August 04, 2017, 05:55:43 AM »
Played the PL game last night. My Death Guard against my friend's Tyranid army. From the way some players have posted on various forums I expected something to be off but really it didn't play any different than a regular game. We just had some options that we wouldn't normally have taken had we been forced to find the points for them. List building was a damn sight easier as well, which I preferred. Might have to consider changing to PL over points and seeing if I can convince any other club members to give it ago.

General Discussion / Power Level over Points?

What are your experiences using the two methods?

So far I've only played with the points system. I'm finding it just downright awkward to keep flipping back and forth trying to work it out. Most of the players at our club prefer the idea of points as a more balanced way of list building though. The power level system is much simpler but obviously does not take anything other than an estimated unit strength into account. But at this point is that such a big issue?

Thankfully I have a game this week with a friend to try out power levels over points. I'm curious though on your thoughts?

What made me ponder was looking at the Chaos Bastion. Previously I never bothered because you never got to fire more than one or two heavy bolters due to placement, but not all four can fire in the same direction. I might just give it a go.

What about now under 8th? I haven't so far simply because of getting to grips with the new edition.

Nice idea. Thanks. I'll see if that could be what I'm after.

Are Tau actually that bad that no one has any suggestions?  :(

Thanks. We agreed that it should be a perils and that is how we played it but wanted to check.

Discussion: Tau / How to get Tau to work under 8th?

One of my local players has a Tau army. Under 7th it was fantastic but under 8th he is feeling it has lost the shooting capabilities that it had and he is feeling that markerlights don't help as you so many to get the +1 to shooting. I'm trying to find ways to explain to him how Tau work now under 8th. Any suggestions on what I can point out to help him? Thanks.

Discussion: Orks / Ork Psychic question

In a game tonight against an opponent playing orks, a situation came up that we weren't sure about. The Weirdboyz cast a power but rolled double 1's. He was within range of two large boyz squads so added the bonus to the roll. Does he still perils or not even though he rolled the double 1's? Couldn't see anything in the Index entry or in the FAQ so we just rolled for it.
