    Reece, I think you are giving neurons too much credit. Waits even on the charge will have a hard time killing a knight I think. With strong 6 rending you need to get lucky just to do a glance.
    But I think the counter to wraiths is more d weapons. And superheaVies

      Wraiths are savage this edition, particularly when they can get RP.

      • Hotsauceman1 March 7, 2015 11:52 am #

        I know. That is why a manticore and other str ten is needed. The problem is getting reliable str 10 is hard.
        See, this is why I want my D-slapper list. I should have never have brought it to your attention

    Wow – Have to say the Edge minis and the background story on the kickstarter I am really loving. Very fresh … hmmmm.

      Yeah, they look cool, don’t they? Interested to see them in person.

    yea remember the Destroyers from that Formation re-roll all to wound and armor penn, with a stalker hitting on 2’s and re-rolling everything.

      Yeah, good point! That’s savage.

    You guys need to insert a truck horn or some bus noises, it’s just not the same without it

    I wouldn’t worry too much about Frankie getting one pronunciation right, even a broken clock is right twice a day! :p

    I personally hate playing against the new necrons now. They can take so much damage it takes an absurd about of shooting to do anything.

    And wraiths being t5 is stupid

  8. Alex D March 8, 2015 11:50 am #

    Anyone else read about the forgeworld titan give away that the winner will be picked april 1st…those limey dogs.

    • Alex D March 8, 2015 11:59 am #
