  • The new rumored starter set with Orks and Blood Angels is said to actually be for Epic, not 40K.

    Those suggestions for fixing vehicles are spot on Reece. Would be so much better.

    It’s coming on the 11th Hour and I stilll haven’t finalized my LVO list. Will another new bug army make an appearance? Hmmmm….

    In any case, I’m getting stoked for the LVO.

    They’re not PDF, they’re eBooks like you can download from the Black Library. Working Table of Contents and the text scales to your eReader settings. Much better format for text heavy docs. Just sayin’.

    • Rich with GSI February 4, 2014 8:43 am #

      And thanks for the shout out! You guys are the beez kneez, too.

    lol, I was so darn nervous doing the podcast.. oh dear:P

  7. Pascal Roggen February 4, 2014 5:46 pm #

    oh, I just thought for vehicles, you could just run it the same way they run super heavies, if you worry about one shotting them, you wouldn’t have to worry about what to do with different armour facing [what toughness is a chimera?] tank shocks, weapon skill, when does it explode.. or not, lance/ poison psychic tests etc etc.

    you could still one shot a tank, but it’s far less likely especially on a single hit, a raider penned by a melta would have a 50% for an explodes result but then that result only has a one third chance to do enough hull points to explode it.
