Rant Session Tactics Corner Rules Lawyer

  • Darragh asks,
Can an independent character deep strike into unit coherency? The idea being to maximize Swooping Hawk grenade packs by sending in a unit swiftly followed by Baharroth. Two grenade packs do damage, he merges with the unit, they proceed to blast whatever is in the way and battle focus away. (Particularly interested in doing this to quickly reduce an IG blob hiding behind an Aegis, followed by using cover or their own aegis against them) or just battle focusing more than 24 inches away and into cover. Aside from squeaking out an extra grenade pack this way my only problem with this unit has been intercepting tau (ignoring blind rolls and having big guns).

    The problem with the DE flyer is the need for reserve control, isn’t it? Ideally, you don’t want it to come on the turn before the enemy flyers. It also depends on the terrain. If your terrain is quite low, then the glass cannon flyers are a lot weaker. If you have more tall buildings and ruins etc that you can hide in, then vector danger AV10 flyers are more powerful.

    Try one out Frankie, without reserve control, and try and make use of terrain. My friend is devious with his crimson hunter, it’s a real PITA to fight against.

      I keep telling him to try it, but, he likes his Ravagers.

    Looser has to drink a shake made from anything the winner wants.

      That is a filthy, brilliant idea! 🙂

    if you do the 80’s idea it should be in the VH1 “I love the 80s” format lol

    I suggested to a friend of mine that bought the Logan Sleigh that he model it so the dogs are flaying behind.. know make the reigns looping under the sleigh and have them waving in the breeze behind the rest of the model… I would call it.. “Logan and his Animal Rights violations.”

      Hahaha, you can paint the sleigh like the station wagon from National Lampoons Vacation!

        What color equates to “Metallic Pea”?

      • PrimoFederalist September 25, 2014 9:50 am

        You would have to add wood paneling to the sides, which would be EPIC. Throw in one of the Dark Eldar slave girls and paint her blonde . . .

      Perhaps just model a single dog, with a single horn made from the branch of a tree strapped to its head, sitting on the back of the sled smiling insanely as Logan leans down over the front to see where the dog went…? #loganisthenewgrinch ?

    Why don’t you guys do a pre recorded intro? And then when you introduce your guest or first topic switch over to the new recording?

    Abou the sentinels of terra’s list… Why not take “the bones of Osrak”? I think is one of the best relics!
