You don't have anything to worry about. Those guidelines are intended for infantry, basing vehicles isn't even mandatory and GW's own titans are supplied with 60mm round bases. So it's a non-issue, your manta is by no means restricted to a 40mm base, and nobody is going to tell you you can't play wi...

Is there any reason two formations on overwatch( say 4 hammerheads and 3 Skyrays) can’t fire at the same enemy formation as it moves into markerlight range?

no reason

Yeah the distinction is subtle, where there's an OR between weapons then it'd be a list choice (for example the original listing for the Hammerhead had all the weapons listed together with a 'choose one' directive) but unless stated otherwise, an OR within a weapon would indicate alternative firing ...

Even with Lance I don't think that the stats stack up particularly well for the hammerhead vs other units. Yet because they were such bad value before, the gain has made them a lot more popular. I have never fielded an ionhead and don't think i've ever seen anyone else do it either - they're just wo...

The vertical coherency question is not addressed at all in the rulebook, most people I have come across just ignore it, ie coherency is purely horizontal, and in all other respects just treat them as if everything is on the same level (including when determining btb). That takes care of most issues ...

I use broadsides regularly. Besides the fact they're cool little models, I find they are pretty resilient with 4+RA, even sometimes assaults bounce. And hitting AT on 2s with ML is nothing to sniff at. I use them either in an orca or garrisoned on overwatch depending on what the opponent has (althou...

I still wish we could do something for the crisis, I don't feel they play right, I only ever see them as supreme commander babysitters and would like to see them out on the flanks hunting stuff, even going for the blitz. If they could access markerlights they'd be cool. By the way can they go in dev...

The extra move is "a move" and follows all the normal move rules, so yes they would have to take a dangerous terrain test if they landed in it. It's worth noting though that in the third phase list the units with jet packs are infantry, and I suspect in most people's games terrain that's d...

Thanks for the detailed report. Looks like the blood angels struggled to get a grip on the game, losing a few formations before they could do anything. I'm wondering about the shot down thunderhawk, if the tau fighters died to flak how did they kill the thunderhawk? Defensive flak goes first in an i...

Looks good to me Dave, thanks for putting in the effort.

Are there any other useful site links you think are worth adding? Probably don't want to get into people's personal blogs or anything but what about things like tabletop simulator? Other army builders? The epicollector site?

That's right we had a discussion about it, now I remember. Must have been a different thread. Think it's fair to say the original scope of the site turned out much smaller. The developmental list document & version management part was canned before it even started, and let's face it, there ain't...

The thingiverse recons are decent. I tried printing a scaled down riptide and that was an unmitigated disaster, though I reckon I could make it work second time round.

Odd, I fixed this recently, the site had been hacked, as far as I can tell the attack vector was a script left on the site by the hosting company, but hard to be sure. In fact I am sure I posted about it on the forum too. Unless I posted on the wrong topic, which wouldn't be the first time I suppose...

like Folais and Gunslinger say, I think most lists are skewed at minigeddon, space marines are absolutely awful if you can't take aircraft, and eldar were too powerful with the double-retain and now are pretty poor with no retain at all...... I'd still be interested to see both the builds that are ...
