  1. Re-rolling wounds, no minus to hit. Plus a convenient red glow. It's legit.

    base question

    Cool, thanks. I got a bunch in trade years ago, and they're standless (though probably due to me losing the stands and forgetting)

    My Speed Freeks are going to love Streets & Roads. Go figure 🙂

    Urban Conquest

    I pre-ordered a copy and am looking forward to playing. I recall reading somewhere that it's intended for 4 to 6/8(?) players; hopefully it'll scale downwards for my 3-person group. If not, I suppose we could each play 2 factions...
  6. In the most recent Independent Characters podcast, Carl Tuttle mentioned that there are two playtest groups that he's aware of. One is codenamed The Mournival, and does rules/competitive playtest -- I believe that's the one that the Nova and FLG guys are a part of. The other is called The Infinity Circuit, and comes at playtest from a more casual, narrative point of view and includes people like his group (Carl, Adan, Justin), Loopy (from the Masters of the Forge podcast, and other stuff) and a few others I don't recall. I think it is smart for GW to come at playtest from both sides. Parsing the two streams of feedback can't always be easy, as 40k has a pretty complex history (in-game backstory, playstyle and edition wars) but I'm glad they're at least trying to address all the styles of play.

    A Cadre Fireblade + EMP Grenade strategem is a reliable way to get a wound on a target in preparation for Focused Fire. It costs a CP, but when you *really* need that wound it's worth it. And those other T'au players running T'au sept weren't only doing it for Focused Fire... overwatch on a 5+, rerolling ones if you're clever and a bit lucky with Greater Good markerlights is like a free shooting phase.

    40k movement trays?

    I've been thinking about doing something along these lines for my orks. Mobs of 30 boys are a pita to move, but I worry that trays would be too difficult to maneuver due to terrain.

    I wish they'd never rolled Genestealers up into the Tyranids. They work so much better as Lovecraftian horrors IMO.

    Orks 2k list building

    Mostly, I need help keeping my Strategems and special abilities straight 😉 That, and assault tricks & techniques... never really did much of that with my T'au. I am going Evil Suns... looking forward to a fully mechanized Waaagh!

    Do share! I've switched over to Orks from my T'au and need all the help I can get 😄

    Deadpool 5/5 - I put this on to keep me company while building my Gorkanaut. Two hours later I had made zero progress on the model. Hellboy 5/5 - I put this on after Deadpool, and made even less progress on the model... having glued it to my fingers.
