You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

They did previously with Farsight but we'll see in a week whether anything useful carried over. Still, I'll happily accept when Eldar players shut the beslubber up about overwatch.  ;)

Eurrgh. They're trying the global campaign thing again. This never goes well.

At least this time they're sticking with defined sides as opposed to saying "everybody all in for a nonsensical, 12-faction pig-pile!"

Granted you can still play Orks/Eldar/Tau and disrupt things, but framing it primarily as an Imperium Vs Chaos thing will help keep it sane.

The AoS campaign last summer was quite a lot of fun, And it was basically between Chaos and Order as well, mostly due to demographics more than anything.

Well I always liked the globals, they were fun and brought with them quite some good stories.
Amd I will be forever grateful for the Ulthwe Strike force. (and be sad that is has died again after just a few month of living. I hope it will be back in the new codex or a simple PDF)
sure you have an opinion,
but my swordplay is better than your´s

Take my advice, I never use it.

Oh man, the Y'varha is soo good. Funny that if it deepstrikes, it cannot shoot it's flamer, only 8" range.

That's the trade off to being able to deep strike so accurately.

The GrimSqueaker

Especially considering it's also part of that unit's escape mechanism from unfortunate situations.

That was a GW site, as linked from here for the English version:
New Edition Now Available – Read the Rules, Get the T-Shirt! –

If there's a problem, perhaps you should tell the office.  ;)

Ha! Weird.
Strange address is confusing... :D

Now, I have read the rules, and it looks like you can only disembark BEFORE the transport moves. Maybe I am missing something somewhere, but that kinda kills the drive up jump out and assault tactic...

there are a couple of ways around this. you can drive up close then wait a turn and hope your transport lives. You can also assault with the transport, then next turn disembark your units and have them join the assault as well (or pull the transport back). almost always though your transport will face some exposure to either enemy fire or melee attacks.

Revener

Yeah but if they kill the transport and you can't disembark (they surrounded you)  you are dead :)
Anyway......

Blazinghand

Yeah, don't do this against any unit large enough to surround you and prevent your models from disembarking. This would also be a problem even if they did not kill your transport, because you would not be able to disembark. the opponent will gladly use his Pile In and Consolidate to cause you problems

Keep in mind, you disembark 3, and cam then MOVE and ASSAULT as normal. All vehicles can do this. Vehicles are quite a bit more durable now, and require some decent effort to wipe them in one turn (even a rhino for example).

Also, some of the new deployment types can have you start 12-18 away from the enemy, so first turn assaults, even if the transport didn't move are possible.

It's really not as bad as it sounds.

Blazinghand

So with Banshees in a Wave Serpent at the very front of your deployment zone, you average a threat range of 18" from the front of the serpent. For Ork Boyz (who can reroll charge rolls, but move more slowly than Banshees) you have an average threat range of 17" from the front of a Trukk at the front of your deployment zone.

This also means you don't need to roll up right on top of an enemy to try to assault them. If you move your Trukk so it's 12" away from the enemy (rather than right on top of them) you are reasonably likely to be able to pull off a charge next turn.

I haven't played a lot of 8e but the game I played with orkz I was able to get off a charge with foot and bike units then followed up with models in the Trukks in the following turn. I wonder if these disembarkation rules will favor bikers.
