So they skipped CSM strats again? Fantastic.

Any other race specific strats that seemed to do anything? And can you pm me what the CSM one does?

TheKingElessar I think that'll be part of the main problem with it - it HAS to be just for fun. Anyone who plays it competitively is going to lose a lot of friends, very quickly. I mean, that whole -5 to Reserves thing is insane, combined with forcing the opponent to re-roll 6's?!?! On the release date (maybe the day before ) I'll post a thread detailing what NOT to do in Planetstrike, if you want to play more than once!

tu_shan82 I can't wait to get my copy, it sounds like a lot of fun.

TheKingElessar Oh, one more point: With IG, it's possible to get a -5 to the opponent's Reserve rolls. As the attacker. With an ability to make them re-roll any 6's they get in one turn. Oh, and to DS a squadron of Demolishers in the enemy's face. With a re-roll on Scatter.

TheKingElessar Interestingly, the PS book also lists Kantor's Last Hope, about which I have heard no rumours, perhaps because its content would be well over two thousand pounds...

TheKingElessar It's one shot, but yes. Think Chenkov...

Dafistofmork let me guess, sustained assult is like without number?

TheKingElessar Plus Nob Bikes with the good old Sustained Assualt strategem...

Plus, I can't wait to unleash a Stasis Bomb...or a Planetquake Bomb, or, better yest...a Meteor Strike...

The Necron-only strat though - 'Euclidean Mindphase' - seems like an afterthought...it's dreadful...
