Please help Keak reach his full potential.

I'm taking four doomsday devices in the next 2000 point apoc game. I'll have them screened by some well placed lashing princes.
"Let's play with the device *lash*"
"I dun wanna play wid no devoice!"

Oh woah woah woah. Wait. Not only does this force me to become Doctor Claw from inspector gadget I have to roll a six on turn one, five on turn two, or four on turn three to see if the damn thing does anything at all?

How is that four hundred points? I see that it's potential isn't bad, but it doesn't seem up to snuff with the other apoc stuff.

Great, another wacky chaos thing that doesn't work most of the time. We really needed those.

I keep forgetting how hilarious my old posts are.

It's not a question of who will let me, it's a question of who will stop me.
You fight for nothing! You are nothing!

I liked the Doomsday Device, but I agree its use is going to be hit or miss. It seems more like an Ork device than a Chaos one though.

Karnival of Pain is a little meh. The benefit is nice, and the extra points are nice and low too; DE have so little as far as formations are concerned that it'll probably end up being used, but it still seems like a minimum effort, minimum thought, half assed production.

The Necron Shroudweaver war cell is a little better, but not much. Requires a huge point investment (which is fine if you are already planning on playing those units) but a 12" leadership test, night fighting rules and a marginal strategic asset for an additional 200 points ? ? ? On the face of it, it seems very high, especially once you compare to what the same number of points will get for other formations. I'll have to play test it to see if it's as bad as I suspect it will be.

On the other hand, the Eldar Shadowwalker War Host is excellent. Small point, good but not overwhelming advantage. I like it a lot.

My favorite is probably the Tau Long Range Infiltration Unit though. I like the idea, the points are about right for the benefit and the whole formation feels right for the Tau.

This is somewhat but not entirely related, Have you guys seen in the GW store section of the website, They've started posting the stat line for the model on its page. Strength, Toughness, Wounds, everything but the weapon profile, point cost, and wargear. This might not be anything new but I just noticed it the other day and this reminded me of that.

Evil Eye in Da Sky is like a land-based Aircraft carrier. I love the supa-gatla; only tho orks would fire until all ammunition is gone.
