  1. Oh, and I'll be there for the Sunday Game night too.
  2. Acquired the Elucidian Starstriders set. Going to fiddle with adding them to my list.
  3. The other drawback to the building rules is that they hold a max of 1 unit (plus any number of characters), totally a max of 20 models. Unlike like the vehicle transport rules, which allow multiple units. So only 1x unit of scions per bastion. Still, could work. Bastion, or one of the other big building options. That plasma obliterator is basically the same as a bastion in terms of cost (bastions are screwed by the cost of their heavy bolters).
  4. There, title is fixed. Now we're on topic...
  5. For the record, it is a better looking model than I had originally concluded. Don't really need one for my forces, but it's a very nice, generic chapter model.
  6. No problem. Though regarding the thread, it's my topic and it's value was accomplished in the first post. I was just annoyed that I missed this survey last time around, so when I noticed it this time and noticed that (to my surprise) no one else had linked it, I made a post to tell others. Treat others the way you want to be treated sort of logic. Could change the thread title if you want. "GW 2019 Survey AND Munkie DE list help," perhaps?
  7. Ah, looking at fortifications, looks like that Webway Gate model is an option for dark eldar too. Could use that for the archon. Basically let's you deep strike the archon.
  8. Well that sucks. Hmm...rather than transporting them, can you make the army work at long range?
  9. I don't have your army, but I've got armies that would traditionally deep strike (like my DA terminators, or just drop pods). The turn 2+ limitation isn't too bad, as previous editions were also turn 2+. The main thing is that 8e doesn't allow null deployment, so you have to include a ground force with your deep strikers, which is thematically annoying. Buildings might be a good route for pure Militarum Tempestus deep strikers. Put a few bastions with embarked scion squads on the table, then deep strike the rest. Those buildings are difficult to remove, that bastion being T9 with 3+ armor and 20 wounds for under 200pts. The building fire output is hamstringed by the static BS5+ of buildings in this edition, so don't bother with weapon upgrades (since they pay for weapons as if they had better BS), but embarked units can fire out normally so they aren't without shooting. Bastions are also amazing Line of Sight blockers (great for indirect firing tanks, or to conceal light transports turn 1).
  10. Oh, what about buildings? DE can embark in unaligned buildings. The buildings are pretty durable, plus disembarking is 3+normal move so they can help with speed if you start them by your deployment edge. Not great, but they are definitly more durable than raiders. Looking at battlescribe, where's Asdrubael Vect? Him and his custom transport doesn't seem to be an option.
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. That could make a good start for a Daemon Prince.
  15. 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
  16. You can now buy FW products in the states. If you go to the Website you'll they have a USA price option and they now ship from the USA. But if you have a problem with your order, you still have to call the UK. Phone rates are quite spendy to call internationally, plus the hours and holidays are UK, so it can be a hassle. It's nothing huge, I just suspect that GW didn't really think about it when they made the US shipping option.
  17. I've read 4 books since monday...Didn't do any reading today or yesterday, so really just monday and tuesday reading. Had that rare encounter at the Library where they had multiple complete series in stock. So all books were Raymond E Feist and all in the same setting. Demonwar Saga (2 books read) Chaoswar Saga (2/3 books read) Books were good, though kinda short. Last book in Chaoswar is pretty long compared to the others and is supposed to be the end of the setting's main protagonist.
  18. @Jay So they still haven't called me, like they said they would...but I called them today and it turns they have the models waiting for me. So, Jay, I can get it to you sunday at WOW, or we could work something else out if you can't wait.
  19. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/04/15/big-community-survey-2019-english/ Won't load survey if you have adblocker on. Survery includes a question regarding if GW should sell PDFs of "classic GW products" which I assume includes the rules for their out of print games, like battlefleet gothic and such. PS: Please, at the end where it ask if there's anything else they should know, mention that the FW customer service number should have a USA number.
