Stomp attacks seem awesome. I might get a stompa as it seems pretty reasonable.

Teddy-Bear Counts-As?

*laughs* In all seriousness though, anything that doesn't have D-Weapons will just suck too much to be worthwhile taking. Some of those things aren't even AV14 o_O They're going to die, and when they do, that's one less objective a person needs to hold.

D-Weapons basically removing stuff from play is a problem (same with stomp attacks...) A 240-300 point Wraith Knight getting one-shot by something that then gets to shoot at something else? No thanks. Or just simply deleting something with no save, and not being able to deny LoS (due to 36" movement?) It's dumb, it's quite clearly broken.

So ya, this book varies from retardedly bad to retardedly broken with nothing in between.

Rev titan moves 36 and shoots 60. it can hide in a corner for the entire game and still wipe you off the table single handedly.

and you still need to recon with 1100 points of serpents and Farseers

Takes between 1-3 shots to kill a wraith knight. It's not instant death on d weapons it just ignores everything. Rolling a 6 is death, if it rolls a 1-2 for its first 2 shots it's only 4 wounds. Dispise the fact a 260pt normal codex model is as survivable as the two scythes hierodules I have (535pts) when shot by D weapons.
So gargantuan creatures still allow invul saves in close combat unless they roll a 6 when stomping right?

Make sure you highlight your tactical superiority while rolling a "6" to seize.  The trick to being the best at 40k!  *laughs*

Also... Dallas... 1750 league/tourney practice game @ mah place... I haz that chocolate beer...

Edit: You can marvel at the ability of Kairos to kill vast swaths of boyz, Tom can tell you about his Necrons.

you know, we are all getting bent out of shape by the idea of the Revenant.

I'm not so sure the Trancendant C'tan isn't the biggest beast of them all, Transliminal Slide and whatever flavour of shooting you want. Draw an 18 inch line. Move the C'tan that far. Every model underneath the line takess a Strength D hit.

then when the C'tan dies, if it dies,all models (not units, models) within 4d6 inches takes a str10 ap 1 hit....

talk about a walking bomb. thing just zigzags through your opponents army and kills everything it touches. and it gets to kill stuff in every phase of the game, movment, shooting, melee (str 9/Tgh9/8A)

You missed the Str D, AP 1 Hellstorm Template, the Heavy 6d6 gun, and the fact that it is the same size as a regular C'Tan so it can hide behind things.

My loadout would be...

420 Trancendant c'tan
- Transliminal Stride - 120 pts
- Cosmic Fire - 60 pts
- Wave of Withering - 120 pts (who doesn't like 16 inch D Flamer weapons?)

720points of cheap cheap distract the fuck out of the enemy and kill a bunch of shit. 18" slide of death, 16.5inch flamer of death. and it blows up and wrecks you if you kill it.
did i mentiona 3+/4++? T9 6W

fun!

Nafka plays an Escalation game

Natfka isn't the best 40k player in the world. Go back and roll eyes at his Eldar tactica. (Especially Dark Reapers being anti-air.... So much fail)

Natfka Won Razz twice.

cuz he had a fortification with a D weapon and a Tank with a D weapon. and his opponent failed to seize twice.
