    Good battle report. I enjoyed it.

    The bonus VP from Belial should only count towards the Primary objective, or the Relic in this case, and not the overall score.

    I might have to take a second look at all the FW units for the BAO…just to know what I will be going up against.

      We’re going to make a video bat rep this week going step by step through a BAO scenario as a few folks have been getting it slightly wrong.

    Banner of Devastation and stormbolters..? I thought it only worked with bolters, but i guess until the FAQ comes out, the answer won’t be 100% clear..

      Exactly, it is unclear. We have to just make a judgement call at this point.

        Thing is, it is more painful for this to work on regular bolters than things like storm bolters. 200 points for 4 storm bolters or 200 points for 7-8 bolters. Sure it makes vengeful strike ….devastating 😀 but it isn’t as bad.

    Why does he have the banner of devastation? Only bolters in the whole list are on the 3 man bike squad.

    Until it gets FAQ storm bolsters are lusted as boltguns in the BRB and the DA codex say to look in the main rule book for storm bolsters

    Another little thing – you only get the point for “the hunt” if you kill the enemy character in the assault phase.

    Plus at the begining he states he has 2 ten man terminator squads – then in game he is running round with 5 man squads – terminators dont get to combat squad. Add in the already mentioned fact that the storm bolters with dakka banner is a bit iffy and i have to say i think the guard player there got a bit of a raw deal :/

      the devastation banner is iffy, but they DEFINITELY do not have the option to combat squad.

      WOW thanks The Voice I totally missed that they are one of the few units that cant combat squad thank you for bring to my attention I would have hated to have showed up to a event with that mistake. I had them originally in 4 squads of 5 but then the suggestion was made to take them in squads of 10 to help out on KP games and just split them when I need it. Im really glade I know now so thanks again.

      As for the banner we are playing it that way only because the upcoming BAO is playing it that way
