Well guys Saturday is almost here: the reveal of project VI!!! And alongside that it's the release of the new storm of iron book; the best of hammer and bolter collection and the new solar macharius book, angle of fire! Some sweet releases, some awesome books, the chance to advance order some amazing limited edition stuff... How am I going to fit it all into one day? With an early open that's how!!! See you lot at 9 tomorrow!!!
Just pulled this of my local GW's FB update. So this means no purchasing of 6th tomorrow? How long do the pre orders usually last, it's a week, isn't it?

My Complete DA collection


That's me breathing fire in my avatar, my aim was a bit off to start but i got all those orks in the end!

Yeah, why bitch about your xenos codex sucking? Now you can just play SPACE MARIEENS instead!

Aren't dark lances pintle mounted?

Or you could ally another army in that covers your weaknesses. Like Tau for shooting and Hammerheads paired with Dark Eldar and Incubi or Wyches.

I thought everyone just went "Eldrad + the bare absolute minimum of the crappiest troop choices and then just mech spam".
Yeah oddly I've never used him. Have him but I enjoy CC over mech, though I've laughed as IG have spent entire turns not killing my wave serpents but if you use a Falcon and don't carry anything you're paying +100 fot a tank that can barely hit the barn let alone any side of it, not worth it to me by itself. Prsims are fun though... Course i don't have a billion dollars to get a all prism/jet bike army :D

I was thinking the hit dice simply have different sides to account for the modifiers though, unless they change how the table in a weird way that would prevent a d6. D6s are fine for me though if it's not. I'm just hoping this new system keeps them from dieing instantly but let's you ping them to death anyway at worst before turn 50.

Oh and yeah I agree the allies does add a ton of color to armie ls. Playstyles and literal colors...but with armies they have lots of colors anyway.

Or how about using a little imagination? You want something in your army that has terminator armour? Use the ally rules to get a squad, but model them as eldar in super-Heavy armour of some description. Maybe CC wraithguard?

you don't need to use actual SM...

There are 2 rules to being a success in life:
1) Never give out all the information

It might just be me, but I don't like bringing units that no one knows what they are. I find it rude personally. I like to know what everything on the board is.

I hate it when games are being played and these landspeeders are ravagers, while those landspeeders are raiders with flicker fields and those kroot with no arms are incubi, but this battlesuit is a grotesque. The rest is wysiwyg, except that all of the ones that are painted purple are holding dark lances. Got that?

I see that you guys have no problem with fielding terminators with your eldar, or 'balancing' the armies that they made weak on purpose by allowing you to take units from armies that they made OP on purpose, but that's not really cool with me.
