    If the Broodkin situation goes to a vote it may be the most lopsided in ITC history, I’m fairly confident the community would rally to make tyranids be able to do what they are supposed to do instead of being flying devourerer platforms.

    • Reecius
      Reecius March 4, 2016 12:06 pm
      #

      Yeah, agreed. I think the community will be massively in favor or RAI on this one.

      • Codi March 4, 2016 12:14 pm

        I don’t think it needs to be voted on. Just make the RAI ruling and let tryanids play with their toys.

          That is my instinct too, we just have to be careful how we do things to not set a poor precedent.

          • Mike March 4, 2016 3:10 pm
            #

            Yeah call the rai ruling, and just put it out there with a “we weren’t seeing any support for the other way. It’s open to go to vote if people start speaking up about it.”

    Hey Reece the Ravenguard list was mine, and you are 100% right the dreadnought had a regular Drop Pod, I just left it off of the list. I appreciate the feedback, I’ll definitely have to look into acquiring a Dreadnought Pod.

    • Reecius
      Reecius March 4, 2016 12:05 pm
      #

      You’re welcome! And yeah, I cannot stress enough how good the Dreadnaught Drop Pod is! It seriously takes Dreads to the next level. Try it out in proxy, first. But the ability to weather the storm of enemy shooting for a turn makes the Dread so much more survivable, plus it grants Shrouding to units behind it, which would be super useful for your infantry based army.

    Wow. Regarding GC allies, I read that blurb and said WTF… an hour later I now recall why:

    1) I don’t frequent BOLS
    2) I hate GW rules writing

    For the record, I think they should be BB with ‘Nids (clearly RAI), but I think RAW could go either way, and a strict reading they should be CtA…

    One compromise for the ITC may be to allow them to ally as CtA.

    The whole thing is lame, but unfortunately this isn’t a case where there are just some jerks reading a rule poorly and being trolls. The rule is JUST THAT poorly written.

      Yeah, it is silly, but we’ll work it out.

      I smell Cruddace’s dirty Nid hating hands all over this.

    Man, the green tide is Tricky. If you allow old stuff what pandoras box are we allowing in? Deleted characters? Deleted Units? If we treat a supplemant as a codex, does that mean deleted stuff from previous codexes come in.

    Man, don’t play Orks but I feel for them. That’s a spendy list and the effort of painting and modelling it? Not to mention it’s a lot of fun. That said, I don’t think it should be allowed in the ITC. It’s just too much of a slippery slope. Should I still be able to take Basilisks in my Iron Warriors Heavy Support slots? (Yea I know that’s a dated example but the wounds of losing 3.5 CSM run deep). Should the DE still get Vect or Baron or Duke? The answer to all of these questions (green tide included) is of course yes in this gamers opinion, but if you do that where do you draw the line, how can you give concessions to one codex and not another. It just becomes a mess. I hope GW comes out and erratas the formation back in. But if they don’t I think it’s best to let it die.

      Another Rower/warhammer player? They’re must be at least 5 of us.

    GSC shit-case closed:

    “On the subject of BB with Tyranids or not, the section in the back of the latest WD (the pages where Grombrindal answers questions from readers, in the Munitorum Report) puts the last nail in the coffin for me, as it says: “Allies at last. Tyranid collectors rejoice! Genestealer cults are happy to fight beside (and be eaten by) the Great Devourer.”

    Hey I just started listening and I like the podcast. I tend to do a few hours of driving every night so I’ve been burning through podcasts. The guys on the battlehosts sent me your way and I am enjoying it. I can definitely say that there will be a militarum tempestus score after April 15th though. Or if there is too much competition there I technically can field 2000 points of inquisition. And yes I am crazy enough to field all inquisition or tempestus with one assassin.

    • Reecius

      Haha, awesome, do it! There are actually a few Tempestus players out there, we see them at tournaments from time to time.

      Glad you are enjoying the podcast!

      • Chris March 8, 2016 6:14 pm
        #

        Oh yes I definitely will be bringing either an only tempestus or 95% and up tempestus list. Needed a change from my orks since the footslogging doesn’t work all that well and I wanted more strategy than I am walking that way. Ya the only problem is that at this rate I going to be through all the newer shows in probably a few weeks. I listen to you while I drive since commercials are annoying. Today and yesterday combined I think I’ve gone through almost 15 of the signals from the frontline lol.

          Haha, right on! Powering through the backlog.

          And yeah, Militarum Tempestus are such a cool army. I wish they had a few more options, though. Still, good fun.

          • Chris March 8, 2016 7:01 pm
            #

            Ya it would be cool to have a few more options but it has been a ton of fun. Even with so few units my win loss is about even with the orks which is interesting. Also its a lot of fun flying around with the air formation and the ground is a lot of fun as well. I was looking for a different playstyle from footslogging assaulting orks and man did I get it lol. And I’m just crazy enough to run the air formation. Now to figure out how to get ride of the valkyries to play from the valks…
