Hail, this is Shas'o Tau Dev'n Kauyon reporting.
I was just wondering how many people play this game by certain stereotypical regulations. By this I mean:
Do you play MinMaxed or Fluffed?
To elaborate, I don't like taking squads without at least a team leader, this is because...teams should have leaders! Things of that nature.
So if you play fluff or have fluffy tendencies, list them here please! That way we can all just lighten up a bit and enjoy that which is fluffy! Not to mention maybe get enough people to open up a "Fluff Army" Sub-Forum.
For the Tau'va!

i reckon guardsmen infantry platoons should all always be equipped with the favoured weapon of the regiment using it, and save more specialised weapons for more specialised squads, such as fire support and assault units.
also, basalisks and leman russ mixed in the same army. possibly under very tight conditions they could be used, but these things are built for very specific conditions, and to see the two of them together in, say, a close up assault on the same board...a little dubious, imo.
alot of the problem comes from people using very specialised units under any circumstances all the time, for competitive reasons. if people played a little to campaign storyline and turned thoughts to story and the likelyhood that the GK allies those guardsmen have every game should balance forces a bit up.
I play a nice fluffy Raven Guard army with tons of Scouts and Assault Marines. I never play a game with at least two squads of Scouts and a squad of Assault Marines. Characterful armies are for more fun to play than min-maxed armies, in my humble opinion. I also give every commander I have (with the exception of a Dire Banshee; stay tuned for the revised Raven Guard Tactica for more details, kids ), a jump pack and tool them for close combat. My HQs take a more hands-on approach to battle than most other Marine Chapters. Again, it's fluffy for me.Originally Posted by Shas'o Tau Dev'n KauyonA good sign-off if ever there was one.Originally Posted by Shas'o Tau Dev'n Kauyon
Victorus aut mortis,
Deleted, wrong place. Sorry.
My speed freak army uses looted chimeras as transports. (Fluffy wise... they were fighting on Armageddon and managed to capture a regiments of mounted guard)
They are pretty bad for orks, with the whole not charging thingy... that really hurt my army! Now its more of a neat fluff thing to see at my local games workshop, everyone has a good laugh at em!
I make up my own fluff. I use L&D to represent Pirates in space. They have the parrots and the hook hands and muskets and a hellhound that draws its fuel from a keg-o-rum. Sentinels are employed and equipped to find where X marks the spot, so that a much larger excavation vehicle (a construction Mech from Mechwarrior: Dark Ages) can dig for treasure.
Thank you for the laughs.
