    Matrias: As a devout worshiper at the altar of the dreadnaught, I am saddened that my work has led you to that conclusion

    *Looks around for watchers, finds none*

    I too have my doubts about paying more than 250pts for a dread with standard armaments, regardless of WS/BS anything else.

    OH GOD, WHERE DID ALL THESE DUDES IN RED ROBES COME FROM!

    ARGGH!

    I love dreads, especially Space Wolves - I have the ancient fell hand arm myself. But I play 1000 point games, so I can't justify Bjorn unless I'm playing more points or it's a giant team game.

    That guy, though? I'd take him.

    They're not even that, since I can't (or rather won't) imagine the anatomy of a woman that would require that much clearance to fit her tits.

    Exactly this.

    No, it's not Doc Thunder. However, the GS boob protrusions on the armor are god damn ridiculous looking. From a 'realistic' perspective there's no point to them, since modifications to fit the female torso would be completely internal. From an aesthetic perspective, it looks like someone just stuck mounds on the chest piece.

    I have no problem with huge point sink character if they are Space Wolves. Only with Space Wolves though. It's kinda their thing.

    I have no problem with a point sink character as long as it will wreck shit on a regular basis, which I think that dude could. I love me some Nurgle chaos lord with demon weapon and wings for instance. Hunt MCs or just break units of enemy infantry. I always get those points back. I don't get the same vibe from Wolf Lord + Wolf claw +belt of russ for instance, even though he's cheaper than the double FB thunderwolf wolffang necklace dude.

    Can someone give me some insight on Ork Kommandos, and when they'd be useful?

    Use squads of at least 12, always buy two burnas, and a Nob with full kit, unless you're replacing him with snikrot. Really, kommandos are there to scare gunlines and take out artillery pieces. And if worse comes to worse and they have nothing like that to go after, they can be a late game reinforcement to hit a unit of marines or whatever from an unexpected corner. I love Kommandos.

    I never infiltrate them, though. I always outflank.

    1 word snikrot ya hes that awsome

    edited October 2009
    Snikrot is good at what he does, but he leaves the squad essentially useless against vehicles and things like Chaos Marines. I typically would choose a normal Nob with PFist, Armor and Pole for half the cost, and put a few more boys in the squad before I would take Snikrot. But if I was running two squads I'd take Snikrot without a second thought.

    How does he fail against chaos? He carves up my damn marines every time he came off the board edge. Vehics i agree with you on as it does make him worthless against them.

    SJ: Chill out, I'm tossing this stuff out to get a response from people like you, who are obviously more perceptive than me. Can you really stack frost blades up to S 6? Yikes.

    Who's freaking out, exactly? I was just pointing out the obvious.

    And the SW book doesn't say you can't, so. FB used to be a PW that granted Str 5 to the user, now it's a PW that gives +1 str to the user, so.

    Oh and you can give that item to that Lord to make him hit everything in CC on 3+ too if you want.

    It doesn't have to; Frost weapons are Special Close Combat Weapons, therefore only one of them can be used at a time, excepting that you get an extra attack w/a pistol or whatever.

    E: Or maybe not. Hm, p.42 is not nearly as clear as it could be.

    You can use 2 special CC weapons at a time as long as they're the same weapon. Lightning claws being a prime example.

  • MatriasMatrias Registered User regular
    edited October 2009
    Yeah, but all that does is give +1 attack you wouldn't otherwise get.


    For frost blades, it is literally "A power weapon that adds +1 to the users strength."


    sounds like he gets the +1 strength just for having it.

    Oh, I agree. I think it stacks.

    Sidenote: I think weapons that alter your statline only do so while they're actively being used. So for non-CC purposes I think his strength would be just 4(5 with thunderwolf).

    Echo: So if you buy a +2 S ranged weapon for a Tyranid it actually increases their strength in melee? That doesn't sound right. There aren't any melee weapons in the codex that increase your strength are there?

  • NaxNax Registered User regular
    edited October 2009
    What he meant was that you buy the strength upgrade to the base statline, and then when the weapon adds +2 strength, its going off the new upgraded statline, then adding the +2 str for the weapon.

    Details, details! Sure the Nob will put a wound on him each round, but he'll be tarpitting the unit good. Mostly the idea of watching 29 Orks desperately scrabble at something they can't hurt amuses me.

    My favorite is throwing an attack bike into a squad of guardsmen and watch them struggle to roll sixes for three rounds.

    Once, he killed two guys, and the guard player fudged two leadership rolls in a row. I drove 20 guardsmen right off the table.

    If that happens though, those orks are just asking for it. I consider Powerklaws mandatory.

    I have to hand it to Nax, at first I was daunted by his 60!!! Tau models on the board in a 500pt game.

    After the first turn though, it was pretty much meatgrinder time. Given, had he landed maybe 2-3 more wounds per round of shooting it could have easily gone his way. The highlite was my wolf priest single handedly charging and winning against 10 fire warriors then surviving a 15~ shot volley the next turn.

    Also, in my first game, I went up against Chaos marines. It was an interesting tale if you want to read quickly:
    Spoiler:

    Skyclaws are way more fun than I gave them credit for.

    Oh and don't ask nax about his sniper scouts. I think he wants to sell them now, if he hasn't purged them with fire yet :P

    The point was to go straight up gun line as the antithesis of Altmann's Wolves. We would win on our strengths, or lose on our weakness.

    He ate me in CC because I just couldn't kill enough as they approached, because I was rolling far below average. But, at the end, there were some intense moments, and it was a lot of fun :)

    Don't worry, in larger serious games, all Fire Warriors will more than likely have a fish :)
