Upcoming ITC Events

ITC

ITC 3rd Quarter Update Poll will be live on the site tomorrow, October 6th. It will run through Sunday evening, October 11th.

Rumors: The Rumor Section is gathered from the web and is not in any way information we receive from  any manufacturer nor is it necessarily accurate. This section of the podcast is intended for entertainment purposes only.

  • The Ghostkeel apparently can be modeled open or closed, with both a male and female pilot. It is also rumored to be the next release.
    • Countermeasures. Once per game, you can disrupt the targeting of an enemy unit, if it is targeting the Ghostkeel’s unit, before dice are rolled. That unit can only make snap shots during that shooting phase…wow!
  • The Horus Heresy plastic boxed set is rumored to be coming in early November! Awesome.
  • Forge World shows off some previews of upcoming transfer kits for Imperial Fists.

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

  • Frankie talks about the Know No Mercy tournament he recently attended.

Rules Lawyer

  • Peter asks: Do Units that don’t give up VP when destroyed (such as Spore Mines) still generate Blood Tithe when destroyed?
    • Yes
  • Abysmmal asks: Can you pile in over enemy models with a Jet Bike?
    • Yes if you have the movement to allow this with 3″.
  • Can the Mephrit Dynasty take relics from the Necron Codex?
    • Appears to be yes as they use data slates from the Necron Codex.
  • Kurocyn asks: Can I take free upgrades on Fortifications in my War Convocation?
    • We’re going to have to go no on this same with no Scout move on it.
  • Divings asks: Does a Fortificaiton count as a Detachment in the ITC?
    • No, it is a part of a Detachment that has a Fortification slot available to it, such as a CAD.
  • Divings also asks about template weapons and strength D attacks: how do you resolve these?
    • Act as if they were normal flamers, attacking player chooses when to distribute all non 6 results and 6 results per normal wound allocation.

Completed Commissions

  • We recently completed some Imperial Terrain for a client! Check us out for your next painting project.

List Review   WE ARE DOUBLING UP TODAY SO SHORT & SWEET

 

1.Eldar lists for uk tournaments just spam scatpacks to the absolute max (it’s not uncommon to see 50-60 scatbikes and little else over here) and so I wanted to go for something a little more creative and fun to play.

CAD

Autarch – fusion gun, warp jump generator

Farseer- singing spear and spirit stone of anathlan

2 x 3 man scatpacks

1 x 6 Swooping Hawks with exarch

1 x d cannon support battery with warlock

Aspect Host formation

1 x 5 warp spiders with exarch

1 x 5 fire dragons with exarch

Wave serpent

1 x 5 dark reapers with starshot missiles and exarch

Dire avenger shrine

1 x 10 dire avengers with exarch

Wave serpent

2 x 5 dire avengers

The idea behind the list is msu/playing the mission that also packs a bit of punch, without spamming scatpacks as I find that super boring.

The farseer would ride with the 10 man da squad and help to beef up their damage output when they disembark and activate killing strike, and I would reserve the 5 man squads and keep them off the table as long as possible.

Thanks guys!

My plan is to put Pedro in the drop pod with the Grav cent, the Caelxus will try to eliminate pshykers as fast as possible, and the debs will go behind the aegis which will be buffed up by the Thunderfire cannons tech marine.

    What’s the wording for void shields on a model, and what source is it from?
    My understanding is that you are hitting the shield that is treated as a separate entity, the hit isn’t being resolved against the model itself.

    The guild autopsy is actually a Resurrectionist model not a guild model.

      Ah, my apologies. Thanks for the correction.

    It actually has a pretty cool rule where it can leak necrotic fluids on a adjacent corpse counter to raise a mindless zombie peon. also has pretty good shooting for a cheap Resurrectionist model which is pretty rare in faction.

    Also Devastation, the hordes book came out this week, I’m surprised you didn’t mention it.
