Gargoyles attacking at I8 with bioplasma even when attacking into cover would be cool.
It says in the BRB that the actual stat is reduced to 1.
So the Bio-Plasma would strike at I2.

Doesn't make much difference, just about everything worth putting in cover will beat that anyway.

No, it's "lowered to 1 when attacking, regardless of other Initiative modifiers" - Bio-Plasma strikes at I1 against foes in cover...and you wouldn't waste a supply drop on them. Nearly every unit will be in cover, or a vehicle - Gargoyles won't be any good.

The attack is worked out at double the model's initiative value.
Since the initiative value is 1, it strikes at 2.

dude, you guys are forgetting lictors. they DS into terrain, and if the attacker has one modle touching an objective (which is terrain) then he claims it, even if the defender is pressent! auto win for the win!

humm, true. This is yet again proof the Orks are smarter the Elves.-Micklez

Ok, let's think here.

Not if they can't be placed...they have to touch a Bastion to claim it. Trust me, Lictors aren't necessary - especially when your reserves table looks like this:
Turn 1- 3+ Turn 2 - 2+ Turn 3 - Auto. They would not live until turn 5, nevermind turn 7 (RGL, as usual)

Also: @Exsanguined Priest - A BA Army could potentially table the opponent on turn one. It really wouldn't be hard.

Naw, just destroy things, dont worry about objectives, i dont really foresee many gaunts in my PS army, but thats probably just my style
Warriors, Raveners, perhaps gargs, load of stealers and few tyrants xD
( Or Dante and 40 assault marines, depending on my mood )

But TKE, course it wouldn't be hard, their Blood Angels
But, Would you like to share why you think that? Or are you going to make me wait till Saturday?...

Is RGL an always, or just for some missiony things? I really dislike it for some reason it

Only the Fearful fear Fear.

Wait, what?
