6th edition

  1. 40k Rules Discussion
    As the subject asks, do you think they will give Orks access to BRB powers? Will they let the Wierd-boyz trade in their ability for a roll on a chart? If so which ones do you think they will gain access to? I personally hope they do give them access but in the form of a new model. I love the...

    I for one was never a huge fan of the land speeder in 5th edition. It was just too fragile for what it provided for my Space Wolves. I often would opt to take something else instead that was a bit more durable. This edition though has changed it's survivability a bit with the new Jink rules...

    As the title states, do you guys give your unit characters CC gear? In 5th edition it was fairly common to see a Marine Sgt with a fist. Is this still common practice? Do you guys gear them for the challenge or do you treat them like speed bumps so that the rest of your unit has a chance to...

    The Necrons, last codex released under 5th ed rules, seems to have been written with 6th ed in mind I believe. The units and abilities did not lose much and in the case of things like the flyers got even better. What experiences do you guys have against this army? I have only played them...

    The key question here I think would be how do we deal with the Heldrake. Toughness 6 bikes, Demon Princes, and the other assorted heavy hitters of the codex pale in comparison with the power of the Heldrake in terms of threats to the Space Wolves. A unit of LF with 5 ML, a RP with the...

    Has anyone used desperate allies in their games? If so was it for a competitive edge of some sort or for fun factor? Did One Eye Open hurt or hinder the game for you? For me, it would be for the fun of it if I fielded desperate allies. I think I would do some sort of theme with it and model...

    Which of the three trees do you most often roll on if you are choosing from the book? Is there one tree that you feel is better than the other two trees? When I play my Space Wolves I typically pick from the Command Traits. I like to run heavy hitting HQ choices like a Wolf Lord on a...

    The new Dark Angels have most of the tricks they had before in terms of Deathwing, Ravenwing and the Greenwing. I have been leaning more towards Plasma Cannons on my Long Fangs than I had during 6th Edition. I still field 3 missile launchers but I have been adding in 2 Plasma Cannons also...

    I have not had a chance to play against the new Demons codex. Can anyone who plays Space Wolves give me a run down of what I need to watch for. Does the stock Rune Priest, Grey Hunters, Long Fangs with extras thrown in still do well against them? Does one god seem to be more popular than...

    For me it has to be the following in this order: 1) Prescience (Divination Primaris)- This power is just amazing, re-roll all failed to hit rolls in both shooting and cc is seriously powerful and almost criminal for the cost of 1 warp charge. 2) Foreboding (#1 Divination Power) - Another...

    Which do you prefer if you are picking between the Lightning Claw, Power Fist, Chain Fist and Thunder Hammer. Has the change in close combat mechanics between 6th and 5th altered this choice for you? How many of you are taking advantage of the new rule for specialist weapons and doing a mixed...
  12. 40k Tactics
    For the sake of this Thread please focus on the basic Power Weapons and not the specialist weapons like the LC, PF, and TH So which Power Weapon do you guys prefer now that we have had some time with 6th Ed? Do you go with the stock ap3 Power Sword or do you go for the TEQ killing ap2 Power...

    How has the 6th ed Tau been treating those of you that play Space Wolves? Has the new Supporting Fire rule hurt your tactics against Tau? Or is it not as big as a threat as it seems. I find the range and damage nerf to the Broadsides to be a welcome change, it means I can worry a little less...

    The new codex for 6th ed Eldar is out, and with it the Space Wolves Rune Priest has become the best psychic defense in the game. The local Eldar players for my group have always enjoyed playing Eldrad and Wraithguard. I do not see this changing much with the new rule set for the Eldar...
  15. General 40k
    After a year hiatus I just browsed the 6th edition Chaos codex. I am not very pleased. Please Bits I don't need the "adapt or pack up your chaos blah blah blah blah" rhetoric. I've read countless threads about people complaining about their codex and as a chaos player I feel i have that right...
