    Reece was your Raptors detachment not a Combined Arms? Aren’t Scouts from C:SM a Troops choice? Don’t they have ObSec?
    Surely A Cryptek on his own doesn’t have it, as he’s not Troops, just gets assigned to a Troops unit. Pretty certain his battlefield role doesn’t change.

      It was a CAD + Ally, and we have been playing it as the Cryptek/Lord retains his status as ObSec.

      A cryptek that joins a unit of troops become part of that unit (and gains the attributes of that unit). It is not longer a HQ selection if it joins the troop unit.

      At least that is the consensus on how the crypteks are played. Basically, it is like the wolf guards joining Space Wolf units of yesterday’s Wolves. The wolf guard/cryptek then becomes just a glorified sergeant of the unit.

      Theres some debate with the cryptek but with everyone I’ve played with we’ve come to a consensus that the cryptek is just apart of the unit a’la space wolves wolf guards.

    Poor Sicaran. You’re going to make the Mechanicus pretty annoyed if you keep letting their toys sit out in the open like that.

    Is it permissible for an Artillery Crew to make an assault move? I’m not sure the Tech was allowed to make that charge.

      Yeah, my Sicaran almost never survives a game.

      And wow, you are right, artillery can’t charge now. I have been doing that wrong all edition!

        ‘s ok–I only know because I frequently play Shadow Weavers (the most undercosted unit in the Eldar Codex! Muwahahaha, etc.).

          I think we are the only two players in existence who use those.

    Reece, you should see how this fairs with an IG list backing it up.

    I’m waiting for iNcontroL commission and play-test his ‘mycetic spores’ in a list. There’s no words to describe how scary the dimacheron is going to be when it can hit back field reliably!

    Awesome battle report. There were some interesting plays in there, it was really good to see the raptor hero in a video report.
