List Review

Purpose of the list is to be able to control how Im going to drop the hammer with all the shooting. I have the option of dropping both centurions squads (one with Tigurius) and the devastator squads turn one OR hold off one one set of centurions and the devastators for a turn two drop (likely get the 2nd turn drop for the 2nd unit of centurions with tiggy and skyhammer allows me to select the turn).  Total is 1850 points. Thoughts? would love to know if/when this will be reviewed, though im sure ill catch it, listen every podcast! Thanks!

    Ordnance weapons are allowed to snap shoot, provided they aren’t Blast or Template weapons as well, so the Lynx is allowed to fire its main gun on trifire mode. Taking the Spirit Stones upgrade is pretty mandatory for it, since that will negate Shaken on 2+ and Stunned on 4+.

    I’m not sure how good the Lynx actually is now, since it’s pretty expensive and not all that tough- however, three near-guaranteed Str D hits is no joke. Its three big competitors all have disadvantages of their own- D-Cannon Batteries are very short-ranged and not particularly mobile, Warp Hunters can’t get 6s on the table, and Hemlocks just take a straight -1 on the table.

    Also, surprised you guys didn’t bring up the new GW FAQs, like the Ravenwing change.

      Yeah, we will have to playtest the Lynx. I am in the same camp as you, AP. I think it will be good but not dominating. It’s fragile.

      And we will mention the FAQs next show, for sure.

        Probably because the updates haven’t even officially been put up on the GW page

      Long-time lurker, first-time poster, compelled to ask: What am I missing re: Ordnance snap firing? Under the Ordnance rule in the BRB it says they cannot snap fire. Is there something else that overrules this?

    Is there a link somewhere to the adepticon missions? I can’t find them on the adepticon website, and although I am not going, I would love to try them out.

    The grav cannon on the tacs are salvo, so they still fire at 12″ 3 shots AP 2 with rerolls after moving, that is pretty damn good, better than any of the assault type special weapons (except non-moving gravguns).
