    I recently got back in to playing 40k and back in fourth edition I was a necron player. I recently picked up the new codex and noticed a change with the Monolith. I have a couple of questions regarding the eternity gate.

    First, can I use both its troop deployment and its portal of exile in the same turn? Troop deployment in movement phase and the portal of exile in shooting? Second, if I use the portal of exile in the shooting phase am I still able to fire the particle whip and the gauss weapons?

    EDIT: Forgot to ask, the units that use the Monolith to deploy do the use the disembarking rules? Thanks.

    1. The eternity gate rule says that it can be used "in one of two ways each turn." So you only get to use it as the dimensional corridor OR the portal of exile each turn.
    2. Under where it says Unit Type: Vehicle it lists *Heavy, and states the monolith counts as stationary when it shoots, so it can fire everything. Portal, Whip, and Gauss weapons.
    3. Yes, "That unit immediately phases out from its current position and 'disembarks' from the Monolith's portal". 2" from the portal

    The following people are amazing and I love them: Wildcat, Timspork, Kias, Denada, susan, Sharp101, [GHSC]Ryctor, Matev, Matrias, ItBurns, Slapnuts, Dayspring, see317, and the unknown poster that sent me a box of Death Company! <3 If you get them as Santees you should buy them amazing things!

    Only criticism, and it may just be the lighting, but the missiles look really bland. Looks like it's just one black coat over the launcher/missiles.

    Sorry, it would seem I didn't read the monolith entry very well at all. Thanks for clarifying for me.

    "... can be used one of two ones on each of your turns ..." So no. And yes they use the regular disembarking rules.

    Mostly finished my first 5 man squad just waiting on the GF as she is painting the missile launcher marine and is being even more lazy than me about it, and I need to pick up a few more paints as I bought a very basic supply to start. The lighting is terrible here its either washed out or super dark so dark is what you get until I find a better spot to take some photos.

    Wow... So last week I finished my second assault squad and upgraded my commander. Taking stock, I have 1 tactical squad that's half done (need painting and gluing on their arms/bits) and a devistator squad that's still on the sprue but after that, I'll have a full battle company (minus squad designated transports).

    I'm gonna need to take some pictures soon.

    Answer 2 isn't 100% correct. The Particle Whip is still Ordnance, so it can't be fired at the same time as any other weapon. So you can fire the Whip OR the Portal and Flux Arcs.

    There's another iphone app that has characters directly ripped off from Tomb Kings. Specific models. That Mummy that looks like it needs to pee, a Tomb Stalker and the Necropshinx. GW didn't even touch them.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    I would suspect that the iphone app probably wasn't assumed to have enough money behind it to make tying lawyers up worthwhile. Especially while they're still working on the mess the Chapterhouse suit has become. EA, on the other hand, is not lacking in the funding department, so I imagine tying lawyers up going after them would be significantly better value for money.

    As big as EA is, I have to imagine GW's got the market cornered on IP lawyers by comparison. Heh.

    The fact that they haven't been able to successfully fight the case against chapterhouse argues against them having good IP lawyers.

    In fact, the chapterhouse case was started in wrong advice from their original IP lawyers.

  • mr_michmr_mich Registered User regular
    I haven't followed the CH stuff...but I was under the impression that their original issue was that CH was using trademarked GW words like Tervigon or Blood Ravens or something.

    I dunno, either way it was merely a jab at GW's draconian stance on IP.

    No, it started when they actually released individual models that infringed on their IP. They didn't mind when it was conversion bits. Well, they did, but they let it go. When they made an actual, individual model for the Doom of Malan'tai, and called it that, GW had enough. CH never released that model, but still has preview pictures up in a random news post, with the DoM name on it, an a copyright Chapterhouse watermark on it.

    However, the arguments GW presented initially were based on incorrect IP advice, because their IP lawyers were terrible (it was on the advice of the original IP lawyers GW held back the Tervigon model, their new IP lawyers told them to release it). They've since gotten new IP lawyers.

    I had my first 40k game in foreeeeever. Me and another ex-Relic guy decided to take advantage of the fact we didn't have jobs and hit the LGS mid-day. I won.

    I ran my Thunderwolf Lord and got to fight a full squad of Ogryns with him. I thought I was going to get rolled but he killed two on his own the first turn of assault. I splurged for the 2+ save, so he was able to hang in pretty easily.

    They're hard to put down to coincidence when they copy the entire design and maybe take a gun off or put a tiny gun on somewhere. Even the plate seals, rivets and piping is in the same places.
