I have a hundred point game today against space marines with my harlequins/dark eldar. I am really looking forward to it. Last night I was able to take out tau (who are really good against my list) She killed my reavers turn 1 with smart missiles and a bad leadership role. I then had to flat out my star weaver right in front of broadsides and a riptide, but that let my yncarne come in. High lights of the game were all but my troupe master died to over watch from broadsides, fire warriors and a riptide. The troupe master then killed the whole broadside unit over the course of 4 turns.

my list:
3x medusa in a venom w/ splinter cannons

5x harlequin troupe with kisses in a starweaver
5x harlequin troupe with caresses in a starweaver

3x reavers w/ 1 cluster caltrop
5xscourge w/ 4 heat lance

The list is fun to play with. I just got the Yncarne so I don't know how overpowered it is but I fucking love the model and I am going to play it. I feel like I have a little bit of everything. Bikes for grabbing objectives, scourge for vehicles (though the caress harlies can do that too) the yncarne as an all around badass. Medusa last night dropped down, blasted away a unit of firewarriors and then soul burst and killed 3 drones, a crisis suit and 2 wounds on a commanded.

Negative and postive, mate. And not every piece of cover is heavy cover.

This is necromunda, not jungle fighting. Half the game is maneuvering around trying to catch people from behind or out of cover. And the shoota gives you a larger short range band for that all-important +1 to hit modifier.

You gain a rend value from your strength so the +3 strength from an axe would transform in to -4 rend on a strength 4 space marine ignoring 3+ saves and reducing a 2+ in to a 6+.

It also means a marine with an axe is as powerful as a marine with a plasma gun but with slightly worse rend.

The issue is that it's hard to reliably kill Wraithknight and Tau for a LOT of armies. Wraithknights and Riptides are also added to almost every list in those factions. The winning Chaos Daemons list is effectively a really good monobuild that was spawned from jank rules interaction. Eldar and Tau are just significantly more powerful and undercosted compared to every other faction.

It was 1 troupe master against 2 broadsides and 2 missile drones. I am still a t3 sv5++ 1w model.

Ynnari is really good for the harlequins. You don't get to run and charge anymore but you also don't need to run three units and a voidweaver. One of the best things was the updated FAQ where you can soulburst from a wrecked vehicle. You need your starweavers to get you across the board but at av10 2hp they die fast. Now you can forgo shooting and do a suicide run, flat out right in front of a unit and wait. If that unit doesn't have ap1 or 2 chances are they are just going to wreck your starweaver and you can charge into them. Yncarne is also nice as his 12" FNP bubble increases the survivability of your guys a little.

For SM there's Grav weapons and that's why they are spammed.
For CSM, Orkz, and Nids there's not much that will work.
For guard maybe jamming tons of special weapons squads full of plasma guns into a list would help but it wouldn't earn it's points back. Sororitas get dominions but 5 melta guns aren't stripping off more than 1 or 2 wpunds and they'll just get assaulted.
For Dark Eldar you get poison but not any AP on it. Not the worst but not great.

Funny enough, in all our games the riptide has been her worst unit. I target it hard and have been able to get it into combat before it does too much damage.

Fire warriors on the other hand have been great. I can't afford to deal with them as I need to kill her riptide/broadsides/crisis suits. They are then able to send volleys of s5 shots which destroy my void weavers, or kill my harlequins or wreck my scourge.

There was a Tau player who did this to me once. He tabled my guardsmen turn two and had a smug face and offered a hand shake and "Good game!"

I shook his hand and asked if he'd like to play again next week.

Our next game I put a Gallant Lance onto the table. He said there was no way I could put 3 Knights in 1000pts

3x325=975. I had points leftover to give the lead Gallant Rampage.

We rolled our deployment and it was dawn of war short edges. Rolled Purge the Alien.

I got one knight into his gunline on turn two with some good rolls and fucking dismantled him. The best part was when I mulched his riptides I got Hurl and killed one of his Fire Warrior squads. The other two went chasing after his Ethereal and strike team. And smeared them into a greasy stain.

I looked at him and shrugged.

"Good game?"

They're good either way. If you want to have a larger footprint, take the 10-man squads. If you want to focus your firepower down more and keep their force field bonus active for longer, take the 20-man blob.

As for the Knight, take whatever you can fit in your list, really. Crusader is arguably the strongest version but also the by far most expensive. A simple Gallant or Errant can also be enough, since having a Strength D melee weapon is pretty damn deadly.

I magnetized them. I bought one, then found a Renegade box for $200 on eBay. $40 got me an extra weapon sprue. The Tripatriate Lance is a good formation that is cool to run. If I buy two more knights I can make a Baronial Court. I don't take knights under 1500, and even then it's one of the more basic ones like a Paladin, but I'll sometimes just put the Gallant into play because a choppy knight isn't a threat so much as it is a distraction carnifex.

Giving the nob in the boyz squad is a massive waste, he's just going to get challanged out and killed or be massive overkill, big choppas can smash vehicles and crush sargents just fine.

If you're going to take shoota boyz in a battlewagon with a painboy then give the nob a klaw, if he runs in to something nasty have the painboy eat the challenge and then klaw the offending party.

Do you have any other units you could include in this list?

For sake of comparison, I'll run some numbers.

Firstly, we'll say the killkannon has a 50/50 shot at striking its target, based on the odds of scatter and Ork ballistic skill.

Firing at something medium like AV 12, the Killkannon will at least glance about 3 times out of every 10 shots. (Unrealistic number I know, but this would be what to expect over the course of several battles)

The Kannon and Rokkits, meanwhile get 5 shots compared to the 1 Ordnance blast, and though less accurate, a proportional 50 shots will result in around 8 glances or pens. Granted, the Killkannon may do more damage against bunched up vehicles, though that's hard to account for.

Big shootas will do similar work to the Rokkits against lighter AV 10 vehicles, though falling flat against AV 12 makes them less suited for tank hunting.

Against infantry, Big shootas do have an advantage except against high toughness targets, though Rokkits have the advantage of getting rid of Feel no Pain on most targets.

I have been Emperor blessed with quads so I must continue. The unpainted Tau and their heretic friends got first turn but they fucking whiffed. The Hammerheads did nothing to the Shadowsword and the massive skull cannon did pretty much nothing as well but did one hull point to the superheavy and a Dread but most of the infantry had a 3+ cover from night fighting.

Lootas are safer in a trukk camping backfield. Tankbustas up front are good, shootas too. A hilarious number of dice thrown at a target is going to function like Guard shooting; drown them in dakka and enough will get through.

Overwatch wasn't a sequel to a game series with an established gameplay style and aesthetics.
>Which doesn't mean shit about the quality of the game.
Except it does, they butchered almost every aspect of the game, from the graphics to the voice acting.
>Which they confirmed they're adding more modes later.
whoopty fucking doo

Honestly, all of this could be avoided if they didn't decide to slap the Dawn of War name on it. I'm sure it can be fine moba, but it's not a freaking DoW game that thousand of people have been expecting.

Gotya, I was thinking about using it in a 10th company strike force as an auxiliary for my sternhammer army.

I'd have 3 squads of HB w/ hellfire, 4x snipers.

I'm considering dropping the hellfire to move 15 points around.

Close combat tacticals are an obvious inclusion, as would be a variety of terminator squads. You could do some pretty fun stuff by having a squad of each pattern.

Aside from those, Ironclad Dreads would fit their close-combat ideals. Drop pods, scouts, basically anything that's better in enclosed spaces and at close combat usually fits their M.O.

>Guard psyker BTFO sorceror
Reminds me of the time my little 10pt Inquisition psyker managed to deny three witchfires trying to snipe my 1W Dominus, then exploded into a Great Unclean One. Normally don't use malefic, but I was playing my friend who loves Nurgle CSM so he let me try it our with his daemons. Man that was a fun game.

Good match, although I did want to see the Shadowsword own his shitty Kytan knockoff. Army photo would be very cool, mine is slowly ticking up from grey plastic but won't be combat-ready for a while yet.

Because why not. Here's one more pic. We ended up winning about 8 -4 because of first blood and slay the warlord. But sadly Shadowsword fucked up every shot and pretty much just absorbed firepower.

Well, the think about Carcharodons is their preference to close combat leanings, so I'd say any sort of fire support should reflect that. Vindicators might be a good addition for that sort of short range punch, though rifleman dreads might be an alternative.

There's really a lot of ways to handle them, since they don't follow the codex too hard and do their own thing. The key thing to keep in mind is they like going fast and balls to the wall, but also are under-supplied so don't have the ability to spam stuff.

For that, focus on stuff that will be moving or deep striking a lot, even for your heavy firepower, and also go for a lot of variety between units. No two squads should be quite alike.

Sweet, son. Check it: you faggots are gay for bolters, but bolters dont kill everything. Unless they're my bolters, cause then they do, kek.

Anyways, Since you're given your hell fire to pledges you gotta consider how they'll back up your main bros. y'know what I mean, bro? Like, hell fire is hot shit cause it piles on the pain, but it isn't enough by itself.

If the faggots your fighting bring a lotta fatasses those shells will do work. Like, Hive Guard, Nobs, and Suits. More wounds means more dead dudes.

Plus, it frees up the plasma, and that shit is HOT. You feel me, bro?

Don't have a tutorial, but I did it myself. I'm not at home so I don't have pictures, basically strip off the legs and don't put the top half of the guy in, then then put a dreadnought front piece where you would have put the pilot. I ended up using a libby dread front piece and used plasticard to plug the gaps. I can get pictures later if you really want.
