Welcome to Librarium Online!
I love shadowfield, its one of our best pieces of wargear, but the homoculus must of been messing with mine because it ALWAYS fails in the first round of assault. Anyone else pissed off the dice gods?
My dark lances need new batteries, last game I played it took 2 dark lances 5 rounds of shooting to destroy a rhino. That and my archon rolled a triple on his combat drugs the first assault of the game :'(
I had one of the worst games I've played lately. Failed my Shadowfield 1st save. Had 8 dark Lances 4 Blasters against 3 devilfish and a hammerhead. I killed 1 devilfish. On the last turn. I think its payback for how cheap we get them...
Omg a signature!
Cheer up guys! It's all about believing in your ability to make those rolls.
The Shadow Field is deceptive in its logic. You have to roll one die at a time for it, so you will have the same probability of rolling a 1 (~17%) on your first roll as you would on your 30th roll. This coupled with the fact you can only fail once means it's not as easy to make it last, but if you get on a roll, it can be a huge boon throughout the length of the game.
If you concentrate on how you are making your rolls (without cheating), you should find yourself with better results. I also use a quick little ritual before I roll: shake 3 times & throw it straight up a few inches. Works well for me, and it's fun too! I can usually expect to go on a tear during each game where all I roll is fives for a couple of turns. Drives my opponents bonkers.

I have found my Wyches to be much better tank hunters than dark lances. Which is somewhat odd.
Tut, what do you use for tank-hunting with your Wyches, just haywire grenades?
