I don't have any lancers, but I do have the ones with melta cannons and the 2 heavy support types. Are they worth fielding? the 2+ unmodified save if shot from the front is tempting, specially as they can hang back more to make it harder to get round the sides. We probably won't be using aircraft th...

The reason I tend to go for a company of arty is that he pretty much always fields a phantom titan and the barrage weapons are great for taking out the holo fields. I suppose a basilisk detachment does get 2 shots and the -2 save should deal with the lightly armoured wings...I just like to be sure w...

Yes, I do like to use the more unusual or nicer looking models, that's why I usually buy 2nd or 1st ed stuff rather than the modern equivalent wherever possible but sometimes the old stuff so expensive that you have to just get 1 or 2 and make up the numbers with newer models. Going to have another ...

Capitol imperalus =useless IMHO should get some leviathans now they are worth the points and pack a punch


I do have one, they're certainly better armed. I'm generally more of a collector than a player so I have a mission to collect one of everything, especially the rare stuff.

I have a bunch of chimerax (they're the quad autocannon ones right?) one chimerro (the one with the auxiliary missile launcher IIRC) but no chimedons. Luckily my Capitol Imperialis arrived today, so I do have that. Shame the battle will be over by the time it gets anywhere near the front lines.

tactical companies do have their use but if your using troops as a screen seems a waste, as they should have a purpose or objective that gains points not just offers an easy target.


Oh they'll have other objectives, they just make up the expendable 1st wave.

company will be tactical maybe one heavy detachment, they are both expensive. You can feild a mech assault company with the chimera variants but really not worth it as expensive and not very practical. 350 points for hvy mech det i think of the top of my head and 700 for mech company (near enough s...

Cant remember but thought hydras did not loose any range versus flyers as dedicated AA (will have a check) Maybe, I hadn't noticed that rule but I haven't really read the TL rulebook for ages. Also, although ig bikers company detachments can operate on their on out of command, once they break if th...

Cheers guys, it was quite nice to win so handsomely but the fact that there were a couple of mistakes made rules wise that benefited me [The loss of the nightwing that should have been out of range, the commissar only being able to issue orders when joined to a unit and the 2 jetbike squads unnecess...

Ok turn 2...damn I'm lazy and forgetful. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the movement this turn so I'll have to alter the picture of the end of last turn. He won initiative and made me move first: Imperial Move: The veterans in the woodland at the bottom of the picture moved into the woo...

Why of course. Eldar move The Jetbikes and Wave serpents charged up the Left flank, the other jetbikes in the building stayed guarding the objective and the nightwings zoomed across the table into the range of my hydras and one got shot down. (half way through next turn we realised we had forgotten ...

Another battle report for you guys. Same sides as last time, although I took your advice on the thunderhawks, but my own tactical advice on the Titan, both of which I feel payed off. As an eldar player in epic and 40K I don't think he was used to playing against another fast army, but anyway, here's...

I was London based until 9 years ago...now I'm in the far SW (virtually Lands End) that's the same country at least. Also, pshaw to Net Epic*, I play Space Marine v2. *not really, I'm sure it's great and you guys have put a lot of effort into it, I may well snatch some rules to put into SM2. Especia...

Nicely painted army. Good camo, I couldn't tell what much of it was in the 1st pictures it blended in so well. I'm useless at camo, I usually just go for plain adeptus battle grey or similar. Also, were there a lot of non GW tanks in there? I didn't recognise some of them.

strewth talk about bad rolls in cc with your vets when +4 against gaurdians lol Was thinking I would of ditched the art company as only good for massed infantry, although *SNIP* Yeah, my CC rolls always go terribly. I chose the arty to combat his holo shields but in the end the Warlord managed to k...
