    Final standing was 3-2 for the tourney, losing to the eventual winner running dark eldar (three models short of tabling him for a max win) and against a list with triple crusaders gulliman and guardsmen who went first and then had the one knight I killed get back up with the strategem. I managed to clear out his knights and important models, but because the even was maelstrom cards scored zero points because the cards weren’t possible (hold the line, advance, and blood and guts turn one for example...).

    Otherwise really happy with my list, broadsides with missiles are amazing. The dark eldar list he managed to go first and get skyweavers on them turn one, which considering how close it was to tabling saved the game for him.

    It was sky weavers, shadowseer, three Death Jesters, three razorwings and then a battalion with wracks and oh god so many talos why are these only 90ish points.

    That set's from 1999 and really just confirms that holy shit the Craftworlders need to get some updated models. I think it's only the standard jetbikes that have changed since then?

    I will take pics of the jetbike army I have to show that I just cannot find it
    What he has is I think it came with the wave serpent and a fire prism as I was upset he got it first just what else I don't remember I just remember that vaguely

    Local game shop is having a sale this weekend. The sale price plus a bit of generosity on the part of the owner has me the proud owner of a Death Masque set for $200 Canadian.

    I'm actually excited to try and paint harlequin checker patterns. Those and the deathwatch will be a nice change after painting Tyranids for the last month.

    The one I want to do is the Masque of the Veiled Path

    I think when I get to painting them I'm just going to mix and match colors on the whole troupe, if for no other reason than some practice with the old color wheel.

    Yeah, Dark Eldar have some heinously undercosted shit right now (and I say that as a DE player). The problem they're going to have as an army when it comes to nerfs and buffs - and why I'm feeling very cautious about Chapter Approved - is that the army has so few moving parts. Each of their sub-factions really only has 3 or 4 units that they can actually make workable detachments with right now, and it just so happens that many of those units are currently really strong for their price (e.g. - Ravagers, Grotesques, Talos, very arguably Kabalites).

    If those get tweaked too much the army as a whole kind of falls apart. You're not going to have stuff like Ur-ghuls or Khymerae replacing them, both because they're not good and because they literally don't fill detachment slots.

    I think Calgar has all his old rules so like half damage and stuff.

    The new Chaos guy has about as much as some other characters. I figure he gives the normal chaos lord rerolls and dttf emperor too.

    There are no Chaos detachment stuff. So I am just going to glomp off club mates for it.

    Edit:

    I went and estimated a Chaos Lord with what I figured would be a close combo you can build now.

    Base lord with a backpack is 93 pts/6 PL with no weapons.

    Throw on a lightning claw and a plasma pistol you get 108 points.

    Closest characters are Lucius and Cypher which are both 6 pl. 115 and 110 points for them, respectively.

    So I figure he is close to Lucius who is overpriced for 115 points as he only has a 5++ compared to the rest with a 4++.

    Also seriously how is this dude not a night lord?

    Really if they truly bring out new chaos marines next year as is rumored I might play them again since it's been nearly 20 years I gave up on them
    But I was playing a word bearer force I know it's not what they are now but I really might do a night lords since I was not fond of using demonhosts since I ran into people prepared for that and not eldar farseers

    Command Roster app and rules for Blackstone models for Killteam

    App looks pretty good.

    There might be a few mistakes in there. Dire Avengers for example have access to sniper specialists in the app instead of combat like in the rulebook.

    Point costs for stub carbine/power sword for Sicarian Infiltrators is also off

    UR-025 is a normal squad member! For 30 points you get a T5 W4 SV3+ model with power fist and mk1 assault cannon! He also repairs 1W every turn!

    He does have rules for 40k, though, so if you want you can field a Lord with hammer.

    What chaps my ass a little is that GW threw a C&D at the excellent free web based list builder at the beginning of 8th edition. Then they take a year and release a sub par replacement. I don't know why they didn't just work something out to make that one legit. There's always Battlescribe I guess.

    worked for me two hours ago. Maybe their server is having problems.

    The new Chaos Blackstone roster doesn't load at all for me though.

    So this would be a really cool tool, especially for campaigns, but quite a few issues so far.

    I'm building a Valkyrie for the first time. I think I'm going to skip the door gunners entirely because man, that is one finicky looking assembly. I'm planning on magnetizing all of the weapons anyway, I can probably find someplace on the hull to mount a couple of heavy bolters.

    Ok I wore the earlier post on my phone while talking to someone
    I have a few Valkyrie kits I have a forgeworld vulture
    574qa1cy5mpf.png
    With the punisher cannons the problem is I got this during the waning of my interest in 40k and soon after my father died so it got put away half finished {there was a lot of flashing and a block of resin I had to saw off and sand }
    I know where the cannons are I think I know where the ship is.
    But I agree the Valkyrie was a finicky kit as several times it just snapped in half or the doors fell off or something I think that is why I left the others in their boxes

    Eldar soup, just to be clear.

    1. Archon warlord.
    2. Alliance of Agony stratagem creates Succubus and Haemonculus warlords.
    3. Wraith detachment warlord
    4. Windrider detachment warlord

    That's not very good right now (the Drukhari detachment alone would have to be kind of a clusterfuck), but if the Dark Eldar get specialist detachments in future then they'll be able to pull off some serious Herohammer shenanigans.
