There's a 10th episode on the rise!
« on: June 20, 2023, 09:41:06 PM »
So since I sold my Eldar and have had my dark Eldar in mothballs thru 9th, what is everyone's views on the upcoming edition? I am going to read the data cards soon but so far what I've seen gives me hope for playability again, especially since I have a huge army.

So let's get some ideas going for list ideas and the such.

for 1k points I like this list in a casual game.

Haemonculus + 10 Wracks in a raider
10 incubi in a raider
10 KWarriors in a raider
Ravager
5 Scourges

lots of was to tweak that list, so if they bring a lot of tanks, thats 11 dark lances ;)

After having a few games now, low T, low save models tend to be damage 1. These do really badly against marines, both imperial and chaos. Too easy to shoot them off the table and they dont do enough in melee. So they are not good to move thing off objectives and can't hold them, so at the moment, I'm not sure what to do with them.

Might be a different story against other T3 armies.

We're playing this Friday night first time. Think I'm taking new bugs to see what they can do. Thanks for the info, it's as I feared tho. I'm afraid my sisters will suffer from that as well.

Looks like my necrons will be my main army til they fix 10th.

basically T6-7 units are great for holding objectives against most infantry.
Tanks are king and dreadnoughts are awesome.
T3 unit NEED to have a specific roll and be very good at it, so an assassin or Fire Dragons.

Redemptors are ridiculously tough with 2+ and -1 dmg. I have to dedicate 4 AT units with total cost close to 800 pts and pop 2 stratagems on top of that to be able to one shot this beast because if I hadn't it would have easily scored his point cost wiping out a single infantry squad... - vehicles are beasts now indeed. I'm pretty happy with the edition, though - I like this change alot. Even though there is a limited choice of stratagems there are still some awesome damage dealing combos (tank shocking with a Goliath Rockgrinder  :o) to be done and some more sneakier ones to be exploited. So far everything seems dandy. Lethal hits and devastating wounds are the things to watch for and cherry pick
