This book provides details on choosing your armies, and provides missions as examples of the tactical challenges available: Dild Shwaggins. These games are quite different from a standard game in a few regards:
In Punisher or Battle Cannon mode, it could basically be thought of as an immobile Leman Russ, so that may be the simplest way to judge it. Wow, points before the bolters.
The Macro Cannon is truly impressive, firing two types of incredibly high powered ordnance, but what a price tag. However, the maximum of one infantry squad still applies, and makes the high capacity fairly irrelevant.
This fortification is a titan killer. Heavy D6 shots causing D6 Mortal Wounds per hit means this should be pointed at the biggest baddest thing in the enemy army, and it needs to kill it quickly to help justify its breathtaking cost.
There are times when this would be useful, obviously against high AP firepower, but in my opinion there are several things wrong with the VSG. Apart from the free Icarus, most of the rules are shared with the similar fortresses above. What you are really paying all those points for is the Missile Silo, which has two pretty impressive profiles. Believe it or not, I have always been a big fan of fortifications.
As I recall I won all but one game, so they were clearly not always just a massive points sink. Other opinions are welcome — I am genuinely interested in other views on these impressive models, especially from anyone who is hoping to make them work in Matched Play.
Where is this in the new rules? I thought you had to be wholly within a terrain piece to get a cover save now. Only specific terrain pieces like barricades, the Statue Man and other specific terrain pieces have los cover, and even then there are restrictions like being within 1" of a barricade.
Thanks, I've edited it to include the cover rule from pg While we are on the topic — what do we think hills do? Now being obscured by a terain feature does nothing unless you are on it. Very poor rules writing.
There are some additional rules for Stronghold Assault main rule book pages , but these are just for this type of mission. They include Demolitions, improve attacker heavy weapons vs fortifications by removing movement penalties, give a standard 15 wounds to bunkers and 30 to fortresses and let multiple units garrison inside each as the Emperor Intended!
Those rules don't apply to the matched play versions of fortresses however, so what you see in the post above is taken from the main rules and army books. Weird that the "twin Icarus Lascannon" on the Fortress of Redemption does 2d6 shots. It's got the same name excepting "Twin", "Quad" as all the other Icarus Cannons, it's not called "Heavy Icarus" or anything.
Having a unique name also means they could make it a zero point option, only available on that particular building. It is odd though, as the standard approach would have been to give it a price say, 40pts and reduce the cost of the FoR by 40pts in compensation.
I think most of these would be worth taking if there was a rule that when manned, the BS improved, but that doesn't seem to be the case. And unlike other units, they can't benefit from most buffs. It would be difficult to price the weapons appropriately if the could hit on a 4, 3 or 2, let alone some of the other effects used on them in the past by firing models, from guide to Orders to tank hunters to ignore cover to whatever.
It's just bizarre. You're an idjit. You're adding weapon point cost, when it's clearly already included since it's noted as equipped. And you can't do math. When it says you may take up to 4 heavy bolters, those you pay the points 8 each, which is 32, not So, the cost would be points.
Before you throw stones, you night want to check that. You still have to pay for mandatory weapons. Feel free to confirm with GW, just don't forget to come back and apologize when you find out you are wrong.
You should also check in with your mother. I'm sure she raised you better than this. Dietrich if you were right about how equipped weapons are costed, you'd still be really rude. I'm sorry, had a bad day. Doesn't excuse my behavior, and I get it.
You guys are doing a nice job on the previews and spoilers. For the point cost, I assumed it had to include the weapon, because these seem way out of line. It's unusual from what we are used to but makes sense in terms of their changing points in the future. No problem Dietrich. And yeah, it's fair to have assumed that after you've spent many points they'd throw in the weapons, floor mats and cupholders for free. I love these things, and would so enjoy using them in matched play and still might because I'm not all that bright , but I suspect I'll have to save them for narrative siege games.
I remember playing games with a trio of bunkers down the middle of the table, unmanned at the beginning of the game and it was first-come-first-served on them. There are two things I just keep coming back to when trying to think of an army that might justifiably take one of these: The low ballistic skill, and absence of a rule letting you use an occupant's instead, and the single infantry unit capacity, which for the big fortifications is so much less than in the past. No, they actually refer to the "battlements" in the fort section, saying that "many players simply place the embarked models on top of the fortification so they remember that they are there.
Gorram it GW. I used to use the firestorm redoubt and vengeance batteries with battle cannons semi competitively. The vengeance canons went in mech lists as you could deploy them outside your deployment zone and let rip with battlecannons to strategically deny areas or provide doc.
Now they are trash, sadly. I've run into vengeance batteries occasionally at tournaments, yeah. They're tough-ish battle cannons. The biggest problem I am seeing with fortifications ATM, is the keywords transport, fire points and embarked. Not only do they cost more in this edition than before, with less rules, crappier accuracy, and are technically vulnerable to lasguns now instead of being utterly immune, but you also have to buy their guns AND they nerf your ability to have characters direct your army!
General sitting in his bunker handing out orders over radio? Lieutenant in his Chimera pointing out which enemies to fire at? Yet few among Mankind's untold population realise the full truth of their situation. This is an ePub3 file.
