    Interesting Drug Options

    Hey, Combat drugs are my favorite piece of wargear. However, the DE codex update really limits their effectiveness.

    Just one question. According to the update, each drug may only be used once! Do they mean each drug can only be used once per turn, or, once through the entire game! Clarification on this would be most helpfull.

    Once per turn. Basically, they want you to keep rolling if you keep using the drugs every turn.

    Think of how many drugs the DE pump into themselves all the time. The drugs must wear off pretty quickly, so they have to keep shooting up about every turn. And every time you take the drugs, there's a chance something goes wrong.

    I also think it means you can't "stack" in a turn (e.g. get a lord with an extra 6 attacks by using that drug 6 times, admittedly if you did than chances are he'd Janis Joplinise pretty damn quick, could be usefull though.... (hmm...with agonisers and charging you can get 11 power weapon attacks wounding on 2s....That's enough to smush anything).

    nono your explaining it wrong. Because wyches keep there drugs the entire batlle bu characters like archons succubuses sybarites etc wo took drugs as a WARGEAR item can roll more then once on the drug table. They need to do this EVERY turn. I you roll 1 double he gets 1 AUTO wound. (your shadowfield wont break because of this) if you roll a triple its a instant kill so never take tripes how tempting it may seem.


    However with that statement out of the way, I would say listen to ArchonBjorn. He has a really good tendency to not say stupid things and give bad advice.

    Ah yes forgot about the wych drugs. Also, hellions and reaver jetbikes have drugs that last the entire game, and like Bjorn said, they only roll once at the beginning of the game and that effect lasts until the end.

    No, you're right. I was getting confused with poisoned blades, I'd had a long day at GW with little nourishment after a large participation game where we won by a number (it came down to 3 morale checks, if we passed them all we won, if we failed one the scumbag chaos won, these were space marines at -1 so we need a 7 or less. Guess what? One test got a 4 and two got bang on 7! So we won, but pretty much right on the edge).

    SM and CSM are easy to beat with De I mean were practically made for killing marines ^^.

    But it says roll 1 d6 for every option chosen. If you only choose one option then you cant roll double 1's it would just happen automaticaly right?

    That is correct. There's no risk involved with only using one drug per combat phase.

    But where's the fun in that?
