What up, y'all? I learned to play wh40k back when 2nd ed was new and gave up before this new stuff. My brother wants to play some games by email, so I'm just breaking into all the new rules.
Can you guys clarify some rules for me?
1. What're the ranges for grenades? (Can't seem to find this one, they used to be scaled by strength)
2. Can I choose units from the HQ section as independent characters and not count them against the troop organization limit?
Oh, and anyone have advice for how to kill off a thousands sons army? I personally prefer infantry tactics, but bolters may not be enough this time.
hey, and welcome to the board.
1. grenades are used in CC. i wish there were rules for throwing them, but there isnt. if a unit with frags charges into CC with a unit in cover, the "fraggers" go first, instead of last like they normaly would.
2. nope. if you choose something from the HQ section and is an independent character it still takes up a HQ choice. unless it specifically says it doesnt.
as for 1k sons, i assume your still using DA, right? well that in itself is the greatest advantage you have over them. put loads of plasma in your troops choices. lots of plasma cannons. and because hes and army that moves very slow, you will have all the time in the world to shoot the livin hell out of him.
good luck and i hope i clariffied your questions

Son said it all pretty clearly, I play DA as well mate, let the Plasma infiltrate every squad it possibly can.
Oh by the way the Eversor is still good, not ridiculous and Heros arent the be all and end all anymore.
Hahahaha (LMAO) I had the same problem, what happened to throwing grenades - they went away!
re Thousand sons - DA have become the repository for all plasma weaponry - the way to kill any Chaos Marines is to take Plasma Cannon (Heavy Plasma Guns to you and I) at every available opportinity - and there are spades of opportunities for the DA
Everything you have been told is a lie!
