  1. Today
  2. Hmm.. could do it by overcharging plasma on las/plas razors or CSM rhinos with combi-plasma. Both of those "slay" the vehicle when they rolls 1s to hit. Vindicator Linebreaker Bombardment stratagem also has potential here, since they can damage friendly models. Hmm...
  3. Random tactical thought. If I move my transport, then destroy it in my shooting/psychic phase, my unit should be able to disembark and then charge on my turn. Not sure if I can deal enough damage to myself to make this work...
  4. You say it's too expensive, but FW site has it for only $155 (free shipping at that price). 2x Raiders is going to cost $74.50. So it costs roughly 4x raiders. In game value, a raider is under 100pts. The Tantalus is about 400pts. So the Tantalus both costs 4x raiders in cash and would fill the points of 4x raiders. $155 is still spendy, but if you'd be willing to buy 2x raiders for an iffy conversion, I'd seriously consider buying the actual kit from FW. Anyway, if the goal is just to get models across the table, could try running lots of regular raiders and then just suicide them forward. The destroyed vehicle rules are really generous this edition, so it's unlikely that a given HQ will die from the explosion. Since you can't disembark after moving and the opponent can surround your vehicles to deny their contents from disembarking, you could see if there's a way to destroy your own vehicles after moving them, as that would allow you to disembark and charge...
  5. Yeah, Vultures cant happen for me. But they are plenty broken enough to want to do it. Ive faced three in Colin Shermans GSC list.
  6. The tantalus is actually super good. But it's also forgeworld, so it'll dip into my gold filigree dental floss budget. That I can't abide. I've been thinking of kitbashing 2 raiders into one for a long while...just terrified it'll look like a plasticrack double-wide.
  7. I'm not going to fill it out, and instead opt to remain salty about wtf I want.
  8. That could make a good start for a Daemon Prince.
  9. I don't think I've ever seen an Orca in person, so I give it awesome points on that basis alone!
  10. Then don't. I just asked with a "please." You can do whatever. And the survey itself is optional. Is that FW transport any good? The Tantalus, I think. Looks like a spendy, but otherwise decent transport. Haven't really looked at the DE this edition, so no clue. Probably easy to convert (I'd look into one of Jabba's dune skimmer things as a base model, I bet that's a kit somewhere). EDIT: looked it up on FW site. For a model of it's size, it's actually pretty cheap in FW model costs. $155 for an 11" vehicle is cheap for them. Battlescribe has it at 400pts, which makes it pretty similar to buying a baneblade kit. And it's only a heavy slot. Plus the transport rules are really generous this edition. https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-US/Dark-Eldar-Tantalus
  11. Here is the list which I am working on currently for OFCC this year. Both detachments will be the Bork'an Sept (since that matches my paint scheme anyways). Vanguard Detachment: -Commander in XV8 Crisis Battlesuit - 2x Plasma Rifle, Shield Generator: 96 pts -3 squads of 3 XV8 Crisis Suits - 2 squads with 2 plasma rifles, 1 squad with 2 missile pods: 429 pts -Orca: 364 pts Battalion Detachment -Cadre Fireblade: 42 pts Ethereal w/ Hover Drone: 50 pts Breacher Squad - x7 w/ Pulse Blaster, 1 Shas'ui w/ pulse blaster & markerlight: 59 pts 2x Strike Team - x8 w/ Pulse Rifle, 1 Shas'ui w/ pulse rifle & markerlight: 132 pts 2x Firesight Marksman: 50 pts XV25 Stealth Battlesuits - x3 w/ burst cannon, 1 Shas'vre with burst cannon, target lock & markerlight: 121 pts XV9 Hazard Support Team - x2 XV9 Hazard Battlesuit w/ dual double-barelled burst cannon & target lock: 156 pts Sniper Drones - x6: 108 pts XV88 Broadside Battlesuits - x3 missile sides w/ counterfire defense system: 375 pts Total points: 1982/2000 I think this covers everything. The list is not finalized yet, but I will be running the orca regardless of whatever tweaks I make. The entire first detachment will arrive via the orca. Let me know your thoughts.
  12. Time: 5 PM to 9 PM (we sometimes open or stay later) Location: 717 SE Main St. Portland OR 97214 (map) - Around the corner from Kokiyo Teriyaki and up the stairs.

There is sometimes talk of playing March of the Ants. Although it is possible to find a pickup game at Game Night, it is much better to prearrange a game before coming down.

  13. Hello fellow Wargamers, I am starting this thread so that Get Off My LAN can start gathering its thoughts for this years OFCC, share and receive feedback on the lists we are looking to run. So far the team consists of @Manethak (Troy), @Khorne_Red_Jeep (Logan), and @Sume (Chris). This year we are bringing Tau (Bork'an Sept), Desert Marines (Imperial Fists) and Slanesh & Black Legion. We are not going old school this year as we all agreed we wanted to run something with more options. We are actively recruiting a fourth member to take the place of Richard this year. This is our fourth OFCC and is the premier event for us. We are a group of beer & pretzel gamers. I will add more to this section eventually.
  14. Give Drukhari HQs a way to get from point A to B. I'll take a [big bad swear word]ing skateboard at this point.
  15. Do you have to be 21 to get into that area in guardian games?
  16. I'll play you if you come down, it's been awhile.
  17. OK, so that takes a significant chunk out of my theory if it's 6 years old. I wonder if that's just the only Exodite artwork they had that was from this century or something, and that's why they used it when most of the other Aeldari sub-Factions just got a picture of one person on a blank background.
  18. They better not! I've planned on converting dark elf cold one riders into shining spears and terradon riders into vypers for a while. Don't take my conversions from me.
  19. My BFF calls it my "dad outfit." I tell her it's my "there isn't (too much) slush" shoe choice.
  20. Promethean Sun limited edition Horus Heresy novella cover artwork, so it's definitely not new artwork. If I recall, Iron Hands + Death Guard + Salamanders on a world (Caldera) with Eldar. The novella's focus was on Vulkan... lots of Vulkan... so I'm wondering why that artwork was used in the article.
  21. Yesterday
  22. I might drop by if anyone else is there.
  23. I was just thinking about these models on my drive today. Wonder when any of this is going to make it into the release schedule
