Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was considering putting in some Dark reapers in my new list and i noticed the range of the tempest launcher stated 'G36'.
What does the 'G' stand for? sorry if i sound stupid asking this question but i couldnt find anything about it in the rulebook.
guess- remanance from 3`rd edition rules i think. is ordonance now
Check the "Weapons" section in the Rulebook. It says somewhere that all "G" weapons have the Ordenance rule in this edition.
5000p. High Elves
Just to clarify what people have been saying, the G used to mean "Guess", in the current edition it follows the Barrage rules (not ordnance) on pg. 32 as JMichael pointed out. Also, according to the FAQ, since the Tempest Launcher fires multiple shots it uses the Multiple Barrage rule which is kind of it's own crazy beast. So I'd encourage you to give pg. 32 a thorough reading.
ah yes it is a monster against space marines either combining it with crack shot for the ignore cover and reroll wounds, or with fast shot to get another barrage pie plate, ive had my dark reaper exarch wipe out a squad of marines before the rest of his squad could even fire.
Well, IIRC, if it's barrage, it's probably going to ignore cover saves anyway (situation depending, of course)
Though re-rolling the wounds are nice.
Either way, it's death to space marines.
Thanks for clearing that up guys, but what do you fuys think would be more effective in a tournament list, crack or fast?
Probably fast shot. At this point I'd say that most people will tell you know that darkreapers aren't competitive and should be sidelined for other units, in tournaments anyway.
Most spessmehreen players won't have faced dark reapers before, so they will likely only work once, after that, they will either become a priority target or get ignored completely.
The whole idea of Eldar is that our units are one-trick-ponies, once that trick is learnt then it's easy to avoid. I'd recommend using a EML on the exarch, so that he has some AT capability, with fast shot.
