Hey, you've made me realise that so far with the 7th ed codices they've avoided power creep. Are any of them even top three?

We'll have to see if Kelly resisted the urge to superpower the Spiky Elves, of course, but last time he succeeded.

Dreadknight centric lists are pretty solid. But boring.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 09:05:53 No.34947073
It's very hard to overpower the spiky elves, because they're built around being weak in a game with strong guns, and being fast in a game with board-spanning guns. There's only so many places you can hide. Especially from dual-heavy-flamer dreadnoughts.

True but their whole theme is if they hit you first, and do it right, you're fucked.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 09:59:00 No.34947645
Which only works if you can attack them while keeping yourself out of range - which you can't in a world with lascannons - or are strong enough to survive the results of your actions - which, barring a new breed of Battle Focus and a LOT of LoS breaking terrain, you aren't.

Also, drop pods: Still a thing.

I don't have an eldar player who used wave serpents, what's so cheesy about them?

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:07:15 No.34947707
Start with a fast skimmer, so you're only getting what armour it lets you - 12/12/10.

Proceed to give it a shield that turns penetrating hits into glancing hits on a 2+.

Allow it to get +1 to its jink save, so it becomes a 3+ jink.

Give it, for trivial points, a 3-shot twin-linked weapon that, if it hits, makes all other weapons twin-linked as well. At 36 inches.

Then give the shield from earlier the ability to drop and turn into a ranged attack. 60 inches of S7 ap-, at assault d6+1, pinning, and Ignores Cover. Oh, and because it's a shield rather than a gun, it can't be taken down by Weapon Destroyed.

Now make this a dedicated transport. One that can get Objective Secured. And that you can buy 5 guys for with 65 points.

It engages you how it wants to, where it wants to, and at whatever angle it wants to. It has complete battlefield control, and the only way to shut it down is to force 3 HP through a 3+ cover save and AV 12, which is harder than you'd think.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:07:41 No.34947713
Would the Wave Serpent be balanced if it had a S7 AP4 template weapon instead?

Possibly. That's better thinking. Also nerf the effectiveness of the shields defense.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:10:35 No.34947735
Actually, I beg your pardon. It's not +1 cover save while jinking, it's +1 cover save if it moved at all. So if you can get behind ruins from your opponent, you don't even have to jink for a 3+.

Also, all of this shit? 135. So 200 points for a wave serpent with 5 guys inside of it.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:12:28 No.34947753
It can also do that thing where it can pivot, shoot, then pivot again.

Does using the shield attack prevent you from using the shield?

For a turn, yeah.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:17:31 No.34947797
And the fact that it's in Eldar, so Invisibility is on the table. Or just cast Conceal on it to give it Shrouded for a 2+ jink. And Fortune, to make that a 2+ jink that you reroll if you fail.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:23:26 No.34947853
Scatter laser shoots 4 times.

Holo fields is +1 cover save regardless o moving.

It fires snap shots if it jinks

Putting it in terrain causes dangerous terrain tests so you better out it behind something.

Forcing 3 hull points on av12 with a 3-4+ is pretty hard. Unless you play tau.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:24:54 No.34947865
You can't cast conceal on the vehicle, the power only effects the unit a warlock or spirit seer is in.

Anonymous 2014-09-18 10:25:28 No.34947873
Ok, my bad on the scatter laser. Holo-field is +1 if you moved last turn, as of p. 67, though.

Firing snap shots with a many-shot twin-linked gun and only needing a hit isn't too big of a deal. Nor is dangerous terrain, in all honesty.

And that's what I meant, is that it's pretty damn hard, more so than even you'd think.

I have stopped playing my khorne demons. Can't get them to work correctly. Move everything and run everything they said. Don't worry its only 10 markerlights over watching they said. My charge distance is removed 5 fucking inches every goddam time regardless of the opponents army. Fuck this game

I can't blame you, really. That said, there ARE good uses for Khorne daemons. If you can start summoning once a daemon prince gets Cursed Earth off, they make a very fine distraction - and if the enemy ignores them, they make a very fine blender for his units. Especially the Khorne dogs, who just zippidy-fucking-doo-dah their way to assault something 18 inches away in one turn.

Daemon Prince with Black Mace
Necron Overlord kited out

Draigowing is a thing in 7E again
Aetaos'rau'keres (Apoc)

Yupp, they are godlike.
Just coming from a tourney that lasted two days, the one thing that my enemy hated above all, was my three hive tyrants. They were MVP all the way, not even SM fliers could bring more than one down.

Eldar dominated the last major tournament with something like 7/10 top places. Tau only took 1 of the top ten places with a riptide/crisis suit markerlight spam list.

3rd place was knights with daemon allies.

I have disposable income and a lust only for orky shenanigans. Winning is nice, but retardation is better. I just want my opponents to stare in bewilderment (more so than normal for orks, I suppose).

There's nothing you can do that an opponent won't have an answer for. The most you're going to get is "Huh, I forget what those do"/"Well, I haven't seen one of those on the table in years". Seek out a 40k general or a 40k list thread, and they will help you with your quest.

Dreadknights aren't that good. 2+/5++ or 4++ with sanctuary. They go down fairly easily to anything that kills terminators. Even bolters.

yep you only need 192 boltershots for 1 dreadknight.

Seriously? They're neat little transports with quite a lot of anti-infantry power, but they aren't anywhere near Wave Serpent or Riptide-tier.

I'm also going to throw in a nomination for Warp Spiders. Absurdly fast, not terribly expensive, reasonable rates of fire and the Monofilament rule kicks them up to st7 against vehicles. They're absurdly good against transports and other light vehicles, and maneuverable enough that played well, the opponent will struggle to get a meaningful shot off at them in return.

just because they don't have a big weapon it doesn't mean they are weak
for 55 points you get 12 poisoned shots from a small fast vehicle that also has a 5++
now, think about using 9 of these fuckers, taking some wracks to hold objectives (3 wracks for 30 points!)
and some trueborns with cannons/lances/blasters
everything not-vehicle can die if you shoot poison to death

You haven't seen them in action, man. They die easy if they're not protected, but they will wreck your shit if you give them even half a chance.
