It's the probability, not the odds. Odds are a ratio, P/(1-P). Whereas the probability is just P.

So for example a 3 to 1 odds is a 25% probability of the event occurring.

>>53014058
The left column is the probability that you failed a charge in 7th edition based upon how far away the enemy unit was from your charging unit.

The middle column is how the same thing, but taking into account that in 8th edition you only have to get within 1" to have a successful charge.

The right column is the probability of failing the charge if you also use your +1d6" 'advance' movement to move towards the unit you are charging, effectively giving you a 3d6" charge instead of a 2d6" charge.

I'm just trying to be useful here.

Actually starting to like the charge changes after calming down a bit. Only having to get within 1'' rather than B2B means no more failed charges because of a fraction of a milimeter between the bases, which is the most frustrating part about failing charges since forever.
And still moving foward even when you fail the charge is great. It makes it way more likely to at least be in CC sooner, even if you get charged.

Grav was a product of fucked balance. You had Eldar and tau MCs shitting on everyone before it. It was C:SM's tool to deal with bullshit. Problem was, it was bullshit as well. At least it was fuck-all expensive to take but at the same time too good not to take.

Because the Tau are designed to be subservient yet competent slave-race, whereas Mankind is a product of tens of thousands of years of evolution and self-reliance without any form of psycho-dominating entity like the Ethreal - therefore humans fought everything all the time, especially themselves - until something scarier came along and then they used their brains for thinking instead.

I think they might have it still be salvo-based but incorporating the heavy since both share movement penalties. Likely a -1 to hit instead of reduced range with reduced shots still being a thing.

I expect the to wound roll and the damage to scale according to armorsave, I'm sure there'll be a simple chart on the warscroll.
Something like:

>vs 5+ or worse
5+ to wound and 1 dmg
>3/4+
4+ or 3+ and 2dmg
>2+
2+ and 3dmg

Ap will likely be same (at MOST -2) but I can see it scaling from 0(a 6+ ork should feel like he is being hugged) to -3(terminator reduced to meatball).

Bottom of BS3 is training for months, top of BS3 is a couple of years of training with some combat experience. Veterans would be bottom of BS4. They have been Veterans of war for many years and survived with their own skill. Top of BS4 would be hundreds of years old Space Marines.

How will that be different from all the other heavy weapons that are gonna do 1/2 shots with High damage?

I think keeping Grav as the sort of thing that has a high volume of fire and is designed to slowly glance things down is the better call.

I think >>53014388 has the most elegant and simple solution. Always wounding on a 4+ makes it pretty mediocre against light infantry compared to other heavy weapons, even if it has an AP of -2 or -3. But conversely, it'll wound all of these MCs and vehicles with ease.

The question then is how many shots to give, which also depends on how many points they end up costing.

GW is at a cross-roads with how they want to handle Grav I feel. With the prevalence of vehicles and MCs getting a fuckton a wounds: do they still want grav to be the antithesis?

Whats going to make me want to take a grav centurions vs lascannon centurions. Lascannons already have been pointed out to have super high AP and D6 dmg a pop.

Hmm...actually, I could see it working if Grav did Mortal Wounds. If it only wounds on a 4+, you'd still need volume fire to accomplish things with it, but ignoring armor and invuln saves entirely hurts things with a 2+/3++ far more than it does baseline infantry.

That said, the difference would be that while a Lascannon would be a single blast for d6 wounds, a Gravcannon would be a handful of shots for one mortal wound each.

Say it's only 4 shots, you're looking at maybe 1-2 wounds that get past all the saves afterwards. The benefit compared to a Lascannon would be that steady, reliable damage compared to larger bursts.

>slugga-choppa orks in 8th are hilarious

Seriously, being able to dakka and choppy in the same phase while in combat is fantastic.

Consider the following:
>trukks/wagons/nauts no longer explode
>advance + charge might be a thing
>you get a free 1" to your charge
>orks, much like their AoS counterpart, might get mobility buffs

Turn 1 charges might be a thing now since there is so much to mitigate it (new overwatch, fall back mechanics).

But then Gravcannons become the default best option again. Seriously, with what you're suggesting, why would you ever take a HB centurion. Heck, why would you take a LC centurion? Las Cannons are only D6 wounds. 4 shots 4+ mortal wounds is just better than 1 shot S9 D6 damage, because it's a hell of a lot more reliable.

Wounding on a 4+ would take away its mechanical theme. Also I see more people using a 4 Lascannon dev squad to do vehicle/character hunting because range.

We still haven't even talked about grav-amps, that could be where the mortal wounding comes from. Normal wound vs armor, certain wound roll results could be mortal.

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Codex Astartes" bullshit that's going on in the d6 system right now. Puretides' teachings deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine copy of The A'rt o'f W'a'r on planet J'apa'n for 2 Ultramarines (that's about 20,000 marines of any other chapter) and have been reading with it for almost 2 centuries now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with the tactical wisdom of Puretide. Tau commanders spend years mastering Puretides' teachings and use up to a million memory techniques to produce the finest officers known galaxy wide. Puretide was thrice as smart as Roboute Guilliman and thrice as wise for that matter too. Anyone who masters Puretides' teaching can master an alien Civilization's codex better then guys who invented it. I'm pretty sure Puretide could easily defeat the entire XIII legion with a single fire warrior cadre.

Ever wonder why great crusade era-Imperium never bothered conquering T'au? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Puretide and his tactical mastery even though he wasn't born for 8,000 years. Even in Damocles campaign, Vindicates targeted the Tau who had read the A'rt o'f W'a'r first because their strategy was feared and respected. So what am I saying?The A'rt o'f w'a'r is simply the best book that the galaxy has ever seen, and thus, require better rules in the d6 system.

Here is the special rule I propose for Tau: All Tau units may fire twice in the shooting phase. All Tau units may make snap shots at full ballistic skill.

Now that seems a lot more representative of the tactical power of the A'rt o'f W'a'r in real life, don't you think?

tl;dr = Tau need to be better in Warhammer, see my new stat block.

This is why I feel that there isn't going to be a loss of attacks because of pistols in the shooting phase. If normal marines still keep their pistol in their default wargear, then the +1 attack for assault marines has to come from somewhere to give them something in the baseline to set them apart: either it being the pistol+ccw combo or having 2 attacks base.

Also I don't know why you don't see value in being able to kill models in the shooting phase well before they can retaliate.

If you no longer get the bonus attack from having a pistol do you think there will be an option for assault troops to have two close combat weapons instead?

Getting more disks is not a bad idea if you think you'll be running more than one Exalted Sorcerer in a game (which I expect you'll be doing every game). The disk is almost mandatory to get the most out of them. If you're going to glue them down so that you can't change them then do it on disks.

Fair enough, they do still need to make assault marines "assaulty".

Mostly because the extra shooting doesn't happen in the first turn. If you assaulted, that's just before the third combat phase. And only if your opponent decided to stick around. It's good, but by then it's not that good.

Because he's T4 with no invul save in close combat. The Boss is at least T5 with an extra wound, attack and WS. Sure he can hide at the back, but there's literally nothing he does that the Warboss wouldn't do better. a 5++ re-rollable at range isn't going to save his arse when he only has 2 wounds.

Plus I'd just assumed you'd want him riding on the Stompa to give it a 5++ save.

Was about to hock my 40k on eBay last night when I saw that 8th edition is on its way. I found 7th took a bit too long and could get very confusing. Should I keep my stuff and try 8th?

Robin Cruddace is the guy who ruined Tyranids the last 8 years. He's a manchild anti-fanboy who allegedly actively nerfs their codexes because he's one of those low-IQ mongs who can't understand the appeal of nids and developed a grudge after they destroyed him in tournaments way back in the day before he got on the dev team.

This is sad. Why are people like this.
I hated being told to strap wings to all my Tyranids. It is no only impractical to store and carry them around, but also fiddly to move them on the tabletop.

im sure they'll see a general buff with the changes to melee and initiative. also, i think theyre taking a leaf from sigmars book with a kind of unspoken 'rule of fun' so most rules will add things, instead of taking them away.

i reckon synapse, instead of being mandatory, will instead be an aura of bonus effects, the only penalty for being outside of synapse being losing those bonuses.

That's actually a pretty nice idea, I could see that.

Also, they specifically said in their stream they invested tons of time into balancing (they even mentioned pyrovores) and regarding the current known changes i am optimistic.

Why not just resolve them as a bunch of shots? Like, a small blast is now 4 shots. If they all hit, that's like a really well placed template, if they all miss, that's like a badly placed one, all values in between are possible. Does have a weird thing where you can hit a single model multiple times, but you can solve that with a rule which says 'this weapon can not score more hits than there are models in the target unit' or something. Possibly add a rule that hits can overflow onto a nearby unit if there aren't enough in the original one, to represent really big blasts hitting several units or aiming at a character standing among the models of a unit (if it's true that they can't join units now).

>>53014838
>Seriously, being able to dakka and choppy in the same phase while in combat is fantastic.

But it isn't in the same phase, it's in the shooting phase. Also, it looks like it's replacing the +1 attack for having a pistol.

The current version is you get to shoot before you charge, then you get to make 4 x S 4 attacks. Next turn, you get 3 x S 3 attacks.

New version is (probably) a shot before you charge, then 2 x S 4 attacks. Next turn you can't shoot because it's not your turn. Turn after, or if you get charged you get a shot (S 4, but presumably using BS, so only hitting on a 5+) followed by 2 x S 3 attacks.

That's worse than before. You will hit marines more often with the new WS rules, but it works in reverse too. Plus the marines get shooting attacks in close combat too (and unlike orks, don't lose one of their attacks because they never had the bonus for 2 CCWs) and they are twice as likely to hit as you.

Hopefully, they took all this into account and balanced orks by making them significantly cheaper, more mobile and/or more survivable. But just going on the partial information given so far, I see no reason to be optimistic.

Half as likely to hit, only useable in your player turn?

How much of an issue do you have with tiny fiddly parts which break really easily? Because the mechanicus models are fucking covered in them.

Really hope that there is another imperium civil war and a good background justification for all the imperial vs. imperial battles. Kind of sick of 'training exercise' or 'random accusations of heresy' (which neither group are actually guilty of because no imperial player will ever play the baddies) as excuses.

Is he responsible for the whole 'they absolutely don't have any internal factions or individuality whatsoever but also they have special characters because I was made to include them' thing? Also the retarded space whale sub-light gravity beam thing?
