  1. 40k Rules Help
    I noticed that when talking about weapons options, people seem to only combine melee weapons with a pistol, rather than with a standard ranged weapon. If I for some reason don't care about the extra attack gained from having both a pistol and my melee weapon, are there any rules which would...

  4. 40k Rules Help
    Hi, I apologise in advance if there is already a thread on this but I was unable to find it if it was. I had a thought the other day about how damage chart modifiers work in CC and after checking the rule book I wasn't able to find any definate answer to my question or maybe I missed it in any...

    I was playing with my Tau gunline against a Chaos army with several Terminators in a Land Raider. The Terminators assualted, and lost two squad members to my one, thanks to several 1s and a lucky shield drone. I won the combat, but I very much wanted to be out of the fight. Is there any way...

  7. 40k Rules Help
    In a recent game my Night bringer was completely surrounded (one model deep around the whole model) by a unit of Thousand sons Marines. My Opponent then Assaulted my Night bringer with a Defiler by moving it's arms so they touched the Nightbringer model. Is this a legal move? Moving the arms did...
  8. 40k Rules Help
    When Marines are locked in CC, and they fail their Ld test after losing the fight, do I: A/ Always save against the number of wounds they lost by? B/ Only save against the number of wounds they lost by if they fail to disengage? As I have just re-read it I've been getting my marines killed...

    Hey guys, im a 40K guy, but this game has been calling to me lately. In 40K I played Tyranids, I loved them so much because of there unstopable melee (Genestealers, Brood Lord, ex.) So what I wanted to know is what is the closest thing to the CC side of Tyranids?

    Is there way to solve the problem of close combat without buying tons of troops?
  11. Forces of Imperium
    I have space Marines and my main strategy is close combat with a little support from tanks, terminators, and one or two dreadnoughts. How would i defeat Orks because they are really good at close combat?
  12. 40k Rules Help
    Okay so me and a friend were playing a game last night and i (being a nid player) assaulted a Rhino carrying a squad of plague marines inside, with a broodlord+8 stealer retinue. So needless to say against the rear armour i scored enough hits to penetrate and destroy the vehicle. So this is...
  13. Xenos Forces
    OK, I'm just wondering what most of LO think is the best close combat unit, excluding things like Wraithlords and Avatars. My vote would go with Howling Banshees, they're just awesome for what they are and in comparison to things like Scorpions and Harlequins are well underpriced. I love them...
  14. Chaos Army Lists
    Hella fellow Chaos Lords! I have been getting back into warhammer and find myself no matter what army im fighting to be getting myself into close combat. Whether its my defiler, my marines or my bikes, theres nothing else like running head on into a fight, and usually winning :soldier:. My...
  15. Wood Elves
    I've played quit some battles now with wood elves, and I think I've made a quite unusual tactic with them, which I would like to call: Crumble Battleline. The Units This tactic relies on two unit types. First of all you need hard hitting elites, preferable with a hero. In my army I use the...
  16. Forces of Chaos
    Well I just got a look at the new marine codex and I was blown away. I'm not going to go on a huge post about how good or cheese I think it is, tho it looks really good on paper havent played against it yet. So I wanted to know about the experiences other chaos players are having :soldier...
  17. 40K Tacticas
    Hey guys... Just wanted to take a moment to talk about IMHO one of the most unbeatable apocolypse tactics for Necrons I have discovered. I have played 5 games with this tactic and never lost... in fact, the friends who I have played against, refuse to play an apocolypse game with me if they...
  18. Forces of Imperium
    1.)Can you shoot a pistol if you have pair of lighting claws? 2.)Does having a pair of lighting claws and a pistol count as having 3 assulat weapons(which would give you +2 attacks)? Please help me understand. Thanks.

    This is a special character I came up with, based on the fluff about him. I am not sure what a goodp oint cost would be, I am thinking about 170+... any thoughts? Commander Brightsword (Shas'o Tash'var Ol'nan Var; O'Var) Backstory: Commander Brightsword started his career in the tau...
  20. Xenos Forces
    I have always been intrigued with theme based armies and lists and though they are not the most competitive lists I think they still have a place in 5th edition. I will admit though that I still have not found Zen in using the Dark Eldar - the nuances of the game are still being realized and to...
