Quick and precise as ever: Strengthes (in terms of powergaming): - They have imbalanced close combat units that are as cheap as Warrior Bugs and MUCH better (Brutes) - They have the most overpowered unit in the entire game (Cabal) - They can dodge nukes and flamers (the "partially exothermic" rule i...

Mostly Javelins because they are the most versatile weapon (they can be AP, AT, AA and Anti-Structure) and Flamers because of the incredible damage they cause (10" Stream can be really devastating). Special "Kill Team" Squads usually feature two Triple Thuds for use against targets like Plasma Bugs ...

Topic: [SST] Air Units - how often
Replies: 7
Views: 1949

Almost every game.
Drop Capsules and Missiles in practically every game, flying bugs in almost every and TAC Fighters (mostly Ground Support), too. Dropships appear from time to time, but not that often (though this could change when our pathfinder player gets his Spectre Slingshot^^).

The problem is that you have to ready everytime before you can climb and that makes them impracticable. Most units will be gunned down before they even started climbing.
If you could walk down walls with your normal movement speed they would be used more often.

Well, their could be a possibility that players make markers themselves and share them with others. I have done markers for all Shpis from all races for BFG within two days. I don't think it can be that hard to do the same for ACtA. Though I'm still quite sure that without high-quality official plas...

It is a ridiculous disparity that the best Armageddon level ship in the game is gaining further benefit whereas other ships *that are supposed to be equivalent* are being penalised. The Vic isn't by far the best Armageddon ship. It is really tough and really fast, but it does not have the damage ou...

I always cut away the balls of the small legs, glue the abdomen together without them and add them later when I pose the large legs. Makes things much easier.

I've done that 5 times (2 Tanker, 2 Thornys and 1 King) and it's quite easy when you got the trick. Basically you need something to lay the Torso upon. Then take the Torso with the already attached upper legs and mount the lower legs and the feet. After posing them begin to glue them one after the o...

I am not defensive or aggressive :) The problem is you cannot place TwinFiftys inside a bunker. And the Skyhook is an Air Unit - if you target light infantry it doesn't matter whether you hit them with two TwinFiftys or four - they are dead anyway. Emplacements are easy to evade as they are immobile...

The Skyhook has 'four' barrels technically, not a single twin-50 (hence why the stats give it two twin-50s). A pair under the cockpit chin and singles either side. Well, then call it "Dropship Gun Array" and make it 4D6+1, p/1, AA, Auto. Edit: I haven't got the list in front of me, but what would i...

I never said that there are no ways of defeating this list, but this does not change the fact that these are too cheap. You can just take three for 375p (which leaves you plenty of other stuff) and you get 3 flying Twin Fiftys (dishing out 24D6+1) that will shoot the crap out of any opposing light i...

-Pathfinder Reaver - I'll have to play with that next time... The Killshot trait makes it really ugly against larger units, especially against tunnel markers. -CHAS-UC = It might be mildly off in price, but not by much. I've always thought the CHAS was a bit overpriced for a rather fragile unit. Th...

SST WotS - constructive critique

General -Give all units endless reactions. One reaction may make sense for WaW or MC, but it clearly doesn't do for SST. Don't try to squeeze SST in the common ruleset it won't work. MI +The standardization of the officer cost for different units is a good thing, keep it. - Give the Officers exactly...

I assume I should have gotten one and that I haven't gotten one is what keeps me walking silent.

I cannot log in to the MI forum here (and I know it's there, I have seen it through a mates account) and I cannot log in to the MI Database.
Looks like a rather strange coincidence if you ask me.

I'll give it enough time, more than just a day or two.

I won't do anything without being sure that this wasn't a dumb pure coincidence (which I hope really it is).
