Given the information DaR has given i think his stats are spot on. But i'm leaning more toward 2 x AP4+/AT4+ for the Paladin's Battlecannon as each shot has a template. In general each shot with a template translates as a separate shot in Epic rather than twin-linked. I'd generally agree, but in th...

FWIW, if anyone does not follow 40k news at all, the Knight rumors are now completely confirmed. Feb 22 White Dwarf for rules and pre-order, the following week for actual models. They're pretty gorgeous. Many sites have pics of the important rules parts: http://gmortschaotica.blogspot.com/2014/02/kn...

Okay, we have our first actual supposed leaked details on the new Knight release: http://natfka.blogspot.com/2014/02/details-can-be-found-on-imperial-knights.html There's no doubt that the new rules, assuming these are accurate, are going to call for a 2DC War Engine in Epic terms. Superheavy Walker...

Actually, I think at this point that a push for approved should probably be held off for at least a few weeks. Now that there's reasonable confirmation that GW will be releasing new 40k rules and models for Knights (see http://natfka.blogspot.com/2014/02/details-can-be-found-on-imperial-knights.html...

Wow. Timely. Looks like that rumor is panning out. That actually makes me quite happy, as it means we'll have the first fresh "official" GW look at knights since the the SM/TL era. Running the BlackLegion Translator(tm) should give us a solid idea of what sort of stats we should be aiming ...

Nice!

Out of curiosity, how did you sculpt/carve/whatever the hexagon tiles? Was it a 3d print of some sort?

Having a precedent does not necessarily make it a good precedent. Stompas are one of those units that really should be a WE, and not AV. In fact, given the recently released 40k Escalation supplement, they should actually be a 4DC War Engine! Baneblade-chassis vehicles are now sporting 9 Hull Point...

A rehash to simplify: Units with a Knight Shield may make a saving throw on a 4+ when they are hit instead of using their armour value. No mofidiers ever apply to this saving throw and it is unaffected by macro-weapon, lance and titan killer hits. However, each point of damage from a titan killer h...

I definitely agree with Mark on that front, at least. It's not exactly hard, but it can be a little fiddly, especially if your blast and wound markers don't look sufficiently different. OTOH, I suppose it's no worse than Superheavy Tank formations in any of the IG lists, or Engine of Vaul formations...

Not part of the AOBGM playtesting, but this thread still seems the right place for this. I just noticed that the Kolonel Sandorks' list in the latest supplement document still has Gunfortresses at +135 points, unlike Speed Freaks list in the same supplement, the same list in the NetEA Army pack, and...

I can't wait to see how people paint them up. :) My plan is probably going to be reverse of most people's. I'm going to go for a cold white with red as the primary accent. At 28mm scale, my Dark Eldar scheme has a Japanese ukiyo-e style cherry trees (dark branches, pink petals) with oriental dragon...

tl;dr version ⋅ Knight Shields are fine, just use Eldar Holofield for the proper wording and the crossfire exception. ⋅ Bravery is not necessary but if kept, +1 to any engage is fine for simplicity ⋅ 2DC is a big change and invalidates a lot of testing and a bit of pain...

Most of the threads for DE are actually in the Eldar section, rather than the Other Armies section. Moscovian's review is probably the single best source of tactical info: http://www.tacticalwargames.net/taccmd/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=20093 There are some 1000 point Kabal of Pain lists that were bu...
