I think hull points are good. But I also think the vehicle damage table is retarded, most of the results don't do anything since half the vehicles in the game ignore crew stunned/shaken either entirely or on certain dice rolls. Imobilized and weapon destroyed should be more typical of the result of a penetrating hit.

>> No.52462430

>>52462058
Continuing this idea. I forgot to add to "cons":
-can't hit your own units nor multiple units

But you can work around these. On my more finalized idea blasts would be changed to nova-like abilities. You'd scatter the central point and hit everything within X''. Flamers could work somewhat like line psychic powers, ie. draw a 9'' line from the shooter, every with at least one model under the line suffers nDy hits.
I also thought about unit sizes and how it would affect them. Obviously small units would suffer from this. I think this would be good thing against monsterous creatures, like if you shoot a stormsurge with battle cannon, instead of just potentially loosing one wound it could lose more. And before anyone spills the beans about nid MC's, in their current states they are fucked no matter what and need revamp in their codex. Against non-MC units some sort of max hit cap (like the current unit size) could be appropriate.

So to summarize the changes:
-no ambiguity from using blast markers/templates. They are not hard to use but especially in heated manchildren wars they can cause or further some spite and argument on if some units are under the blast or not etc. Dice are fair to all in their random way.
-Reduce the neccessary items needed to play. Any self-respecting player ALWAYS remeber to bring everything you need to play. Except those times they don't. Human errors happen but what I learned from the military is that less moving parts thing has the more reliable it is.
-Unit formations. You don't have to spread out against blast. In fact you can't. It takes away counterplay which is bad on itself. Then again it would make playing 200+ model armies more bearable. I mean I could take 40 minutes to max out perfectly the coherency of my six guardsman blobs every turn. Also with small blasts they are too binary of being totally useless or maximum clustermurder unless they were barrage of several small blasts.

>> No.52462663

A little bit of both. Lictors need to either be Carnifex-tough in terms of wounds and sustainability in order to get stuck in with a unit and actually last long enough to be terrifying, or they need the ability to run in, kill any model they want in the unit, then fade away.

Raveners just need to be a warrior template that can deep-strike and charge, or they need good weapons platforms. Since 'nids don't traditionally hand out their good shooty guns at all, that probably means giving them access to a Bonesword-like weapon and more attacks.

Grav guns are AP2 Salvo weapons, and are normal special/heavy weapons in SM armies, you get entire squads of devastators with grav cannons and bike squads qith grav guns. So no, regenerating wounds on a 4+ isn't going to do anything at all, regeneration also costs 30 points.

You don't understand. Grav wounds on armour save and is AP2. And a minimum size squad of grav Centurions puts out 15 shots. Five plasma guns will kill a Carnifex. Sternguard special ammo will kill a Carnifex. A 5-man squad of missile launcher devastators will kill a Carnifex. A ten man squad of Fire Warriors will put out 30 S5 shots with an Ethereal nearby, 40 shots if there's a Cadre Fireblade in the unit. Dead Carnifex.

I played against my mate's Corpse Thief formation of five Talos Pain Engines backed by another formation that grants them 4+ FnP, re-rolling 1s. Each pain engine is T7, 3W, 3+ armour. I dumped 30 grav shots into that unit and outright killed three of those things.

Have yet to have over watch stop my assaults that mattered. I've seen it kill my distraction spawns, but that's what they were there for, to take all that fire so that my CSM could get into melee.
Only armies I've played against have been 1 tau army, and 1 Eldar Army.

30 special weapons, half of which will normally be out of range and the rest fire 1 BS3 shot, six Autocannon hits and a Baneblade at BS3 is not dramatic firepower. Knight just walked on through two squads then smashed the Baneblade, Infiltrators made mincemeat of three because glorious S6 en masse, Dunecrawler had a field day blowing up Sentinels and hammering the command Bastion, and my Inqusitor Psychic Shrieked about four squads straight back off the edge they just outflanked from.

Infltrators were picking on squads near the Baneblade so I could wipe them out in his turn, and I had Vanguard, blocks of Bolterlytes, Plasmaphrons and Inqs spamming Psychic Shriek clearing the ones that showed up again. Took quite a lot of lasgun losses, but the special weapons directed at the Dunecrawler managed to blow a Heavy Stubber off and that's it, until it got nailed by the Baneblade Cannon turn 4.

4x6, and we normally do roll for it. If it had been shorter and wider I could have pushed for the far objectives more easily since he'd have to spread out his line at the start, and if you're careful about where you put your firepower you can bring the squads to low numbers with less specials and leave them there, so at least he has to suicide them in on his turn. Also, kill anything not an infantry squad, since only they respawn.

his list was a basic tau power list. the formation where they can run then shoot, and get +1 bs for everyone shooting at one thing. commander, about 5 5 man squads of fire warriors, 3 missilesides, a riptide, 2 deep striking fusion suits, a deepstrike fusion piranha, a unit of pathfinders, and stormsurge, then a formation of markerdrones.

Luckily I went first. Had some robots back to back marching up the field, except for the gorkanauts stayed within 6 of the morkanaut. ALLLL of my less than impressive fiepower was poured into the markerdrones first turn. Managed to kill 3 whole units, and the 4th one jinked at the beginning so I concentrated on the others. His turn rolled around and the pathfinders were positioned poorly, only 2 were in range of what he wanted to shoot, combining with 2 squads of fire warriors they only still got one hit. The last snap firing drones hit that same morkanaut with one more, so he fired a D missle, which took off 3 hull points but did not stun. broadsides combined fire with fire warriors to hit me with 10 str 7 missles, but only one rolled a 6, and i made my invun save this time. the riptide was armed with the burst cannon, so overcharged trying to take down a unit of kanz, failed that but did not take a wound, killing only one kan. 2 fire warrior squads failed to kill even one more kan, only doing 1 hp. The stormsurge pie plated my mork, but it scattered in a way that it ONLY hit it instead of almost getting the other 2 as well. That was probably the biggest lucky roll in my favor. It destroyed the morkanaut, but then with its 2nd round of shooting could only target one gorkanaut instead of all 3. Hit and damaged but rolled a 1 on the pen so just lost a hull point. Rolled enough missles to destroy one of the kan units, then jumped back with what he could. Next turn I called waagh, ran with everything, and actually managed to get about half my stuff into combat.2 dreads on the riptide. cont.

one gorkanaut managed to get into the ruins with the pathfinders, and a unit of kanz into drones. The dreads only managed 2 wounds on the riptide after abysmal rolling to his none, and he stayed. kanz killed 3 drones from the jinked squad, and pathfinders died to the man. markerlights were basically gone at this point. the drone ran but was caught.

Next turn he got the piranha in, and landed behind my gork in the ruins. i made my fusion cover save, broadsides targeted the closest dread and did away with it. the other being 2 inches behind. All the fire warriors combined and blew away the untouched kan group. the single kan being near 2 of them still. stormsurge fired its big gun at the exposed gork, only doing 2 hull points. it fired its remaining d missles at the kanz the previous turn, i was thinking they were the side missles, but those are only str 5. with a sigh, he fired its 2nd big blast on it, of course this time getting a 6.. its battery of str 5 missles were pretty worthless this game. In combat the 2 dreads did fantastic and scored 7 wounds on the riptide. He failed every invun, and only made 2 fnp. it was actually pretty funny.

my turn my objective grabbers came on and ran up the field as always. after rather pointless shooting my dread assaulted the hammerheads, losing 2 hp in the process. the gork was out of position so killed the piranha, the single kan charged the fire warriors, and another dread made a hail mary charge and managed to tie up the stormsurge. he managed only one wound thru after a 4++ and 5+ fnp. still he was not stomped to death, so that was good. The other dread killed 2 broadsides outright, and the other one losing by 4 ran but got away. gork killed the piranha, and the other 2 living dreads were still out of range to help this turn but next would be able to hit whatever they wanted. cont.
