>Lascannon heavy weapons team will still demolish any multiwound target. Including that dread.
Yeah, but a sole lascannon can't kill it outright because they only do D6 damage, and we don't know what the reduced efficiency chart for vehicles looks like yet.

If you want to reliably kill multiple vehicles completely in single salvos it will require you to take more lascannons, which limits your ability to deal with chaff.

>> No.52913031

So, from the looks of things, high power weapons get better against vehicles (and other big things), medium power ones get worse (but probably better against marines, due to middling AP actually achieving something now).

>Because tankbustas were just too powerful

Also, no keywords on weapon profiles.

I'm wondering if there are some wound values which are going to work out better than a simple analysis would suggest... if most multi-wound weapons do D6, then there are likely to be points where one extra wound either makes fuck all difference or quite a big one. Like, anything that kills a 15 wound model probably kills a 16 wound one as well, but 14 wounds is much more vulnerable because it's statistically more likely to die to four shots instead of 5? Probably not a huge issue with anything except super-heavies, but I can see that the SM dread is nicely positioned at the point where it is just about able to survive three average lascannon hits.

Is there any indication that vehicles will even have reduced stats as they take damage?

All the AoS stuff that does that has asterisks on their statline for the affected characteristics, but the dread doesn't have any.

Also, since everything has the same stats, will all vehicles be able to fight in melee? Kind of nonsensical that a buggy with a couple of orks hanging off it can't do shit in close combat at the moment. Also, might make grabba klaws and wreckin balls useful.

So, flamers don't have 'ignores cover' as a special rule.

Does that mean cover is now a modifier to your 'to hit' rolls or that they decided fire doesn't go around corners?

Also, no 'flame' keyword or anything. Does that mean keywords don't apply to weapons or just that they aren't on the profile?

Don't know, but if they're making cover as a concept be a simple save increase, Jink might be removed or be a separate rule that gives the enemy a hit penalty.

When has that ever stopped GW? Besides, it's perfectly justified in terms of simulating the background, just not in terms of game balance. Which means it's more likely than not, since GW have made it pretty clear they don't give a single shit about balance, even in the age of new GW.

>> No.52913755

Hmm, I don't really agree. I mean let's face it, if someone's packing AP3, you're going to put your marines in cover. Part of the reason people say Rubrics are shit is because you pay a premium for guns that can be negated by ducking behind a bush, giving you a 5+ save at the least.

This way, the best possible save you can take against them will be 4+ (2+ termie equiavalent-2), making them more useful against everything. 5/6 save dudes still get mulched, 4+ get a t-shirt save, marines not much better. Termies go down to carapace armour.

I'm just eager to see how invulns work. the 3 possibilities I can see are:

Invuln adds to your save
Invuln makes you immune to AP modifiers
Invuln can be taken after your regular Save

They may also make Invulns much rarer, like HQ-tier only.

Why do people have such trouble applying logic to what the Flamer's new rule entails?

They're the go-to anti-horde and anti-cover weapon in the game and always were. They now don't have templates anymore but always hit an automatic 1d6 hits.
If their rule skips the To Hit roll and the weapon is meant to ignore cover, it's obvious that cover will play a part in your chance to hit a target, as it should've always been, rather thanyour ability to hurt them after hitting.

Ergo, it's save to assume that cover will worsen BS instead of acting as an additional atmot or force field.

>Dev's confirmed on twitter that cover is a bonus to the save
Not sure what to think of that...

So, cover benefits you more, the better your armour is and weapons with good armour penetration are also good against cover?

Not sure if I like that or not. Means most hordes don't need to worry about keeping in cover which at least simplifies their movement (and no more blast templates helps too) while marines and the like will want to be more careful (which kind of suits their elite nature, I guess). Most heavy armour units are kind of 'close assault' types who seem to suit hanging out in ruins. On the other hand, it reduces the survivability of ork and similar armies even further and even if it's balanced by the points costs, you will still need to bring a lot of bodies to soak up those casualties, which cost more money (yeah, that's an upside for GW), take longer to paint, occupy more storage space, etc. Hopefully the bigger models in those armies will be good enough that you're not relying on just hordes.

It'll absolutely make small games more viable. Right off the bat, 'everything can damage everything' is a big one. Assault changes make tons of more models viable. MCs and vehicles get weaker as they take damage too, something right from AoS that does a lot to help small game viability.

I have never seen a core update for any game where the community unanimously decided "No. We are not playing this." Death from the Skies is just that bad.

>> No.52916867

Yeah, but that's because you're shooting it into an enclosed space. It also requires you to be firing straight into the firing points of a bunker, and if you're pointing your weapon inside the bunker, then a gun negates the cover just as much as the flamethrower. The flamethrower vs bunker deadliness is covered in the no escape rule.

My standard game size in school used to be around 800 points. Good old 4th edition days.

Introducing flyers and superheavies ruined a lot of the fun for me, tournaments are always large games too and never seem to be 1000pts and below. Makes it expensive to participate.

Add to that the absolutely stupid number of expansions to the game recently and it's been dead to me.

Think of "Basic infantry Strength" in fantasy. It's 3-4.

Sure, there are the odd ubermensch but in general units fall in the 3-4 sections with anything stronger left to the special and rare choices.

It's perfectly alright for your heavily armoured, fast and tough basic infantry to not also blow the fuck out of enemy saves, bolters do not need to make Terminator armour into power armour.

>> No.52917019

A few things

First, it divided flyers into 3 types based on their role, whether they should kill other planes, bomb thinga, or strafe the ground. The problem is that those categories were too narrow and a lot of planes that could fill two roles suddenly only had one

In addition, they added a phase before each turn where your fliers and the enemy fliers would fight and potentially destroy each other. Thus your hundred+ point model might just die before hitting the board.

There were also new squadron bonuses where lining up 3 or 4 flyers in a certain way gave them some other free benefits

And if you think you could avoid this by not bringing flyers, if your opponent had one and you didnt, they got a free bonus to reserve rolls while you got a penalty.

Basically the entire thing was a poor attempt at getting everyone to go out and buy 4 new flyers to continue playing the game.

Death from the Skies introduced a new phase to the game, the Dogfight phase. This happened off-table, and featured flyers on both sides dueling by rolling on random tables to see what would happen. To supplement this, all flyers were given new stats like Pursuit and Agility which only affected the Dogfight Phase.

This came in an edition where people already found the number of phases in a turn bloated thanks to the addition of the Psychic Phase, which depending on the army you were taking could take a very long time indeed. So the community weren't typically going to be impressed by adding yet another Phase in which really didn't add anything to the game, especially as the only outcomes were "My flyer comes on" or "My flyer got shot down off-board before making it onto the table."

In addition however, all existing Flyers were lumped into 3 catagories, Fighter, Fighter-Bomber and Bomber. This changed their rules; Fighters were now the only Flyers with the Skyfire special rule, meaning that they were the only Flyers that could really shoot down other Flyers. They also got -1BS against ground targets, and players hated the idea of taking a Flyer that was only useful if your opponent also bought a Flyer.

To top it all off, Flyers had been out of the meta for some time ever since codex updates nerfed them pretty hard after their initial release where they were very strong.

Combine that all, and you get a book that no-one wanted.

>> No.52917070

Well, for one thing it introduced a whole extra phase to the game with it's own sub-phases and shit that were
A) Devoid of real strategy (you just randomly picked a maneuver on a chart 3 times and hoped they beat whatever 3 revenuers your enemy picked)
B) Taking more time out of your life in a game already 3 hours long.
C) required a WHOLE EXTRA TABLE when many stores already dedicated all their room to regular tables and maybe an extra couple sports for reserves if they're lucky or extra large
D) Completely flubbed up the balance with some factions not even having a properly stat'd fighter to call their own
E) Encouraged people to take obscene numbers of flyers (Up to FIVE!) and then
F for FAIL!) fit them into certain shapes on a board that should be covered in terrain too uneven to put the stands on.

I have an Avenger Strike Fighter waiting to be built, so I'm legitimately curious how it'll turn out. Having the 2 Lascannons is a big plus for new tank hunting, and the mega bolter will probably be Heavy 7 S6 AP -2, which is also good for tanks. It should be a tank murderer now, which is what an A-10 about should be.

What's the current gun? Heavy 7 Str.6 AP3?

If a Dreadnought at AV12 is now T7, then odds are you'll be wounding most tanks on 5's or 6's with the mega bolter. So most likely 1 wound from it per round, plus 1d6 from the lascannons combined (we'll assume 1 misses/gets saved).

So you'll take a tank to half health, average, per turn. Man Idle speculation is fun!
