My hope for 6th edition

Post  grots life on Sun Mar 18, 2012 6:38 pm

More than anything, I really hope that 6th edition uses percentages for army building like fantasy uses.

There are a lot of mixed emotions on this. It sounds good, until you look at the fact that you can field some weird armies with troops. For example.

Coteaz

19x 3 acolytes with bolters in a razorback with psybolt ammo and assault cannon.

2000 pts

That's 19 twin linked, str 7 assault cannons on an armor 11 vehicle with fortitude, all with scoring units inside. Deadly Smile

yikes that is pretty scary, but everywhere you go you'll find people like that using the rules/FOC/whatever to their advantage to win. So this is nothing new. If the precentages happen then they will happen. If it doesn't then it won't.....

If "IF" was a fifth we'd all be drunk.... So until it actually comes down to it being released and I have my grubby hands on the actual core rulebook. So I'll keep my mouth shut until then and will adapt if something changes.

I foresee that 6th will be a big rulebook that many people from different tribes will gather and discuss the effects it has on a few hours of their weekly lives. So says the prophet of chaos.

Will be curious to see how long it takes to completely switch over to the new edition. Not everybody will be able to afford either the box set or a new rulebook right away, so some folks will be playing 5th edition while a lot of people will have moved on to 6th.

im lookn forword to it
maybe they will fix some of the stupid rules that they have now


example feel no pain and fearless
feel no pain on the chart depending on the ap of the wep [ like fail reg] save 4+] [ middle [toughness from the str of the wep][5+] [instant death 6+]

fearless stop the horendous saving again after combat couse a multitudes of save will hurt an horde army example
30 boyz fearless / got assualted / the squad wounded the boyz 15 time/ still fearless/ boyz failed 10 of them/
30 - 10 =20 / combat resolves/ have to save again cuase of fearless so roll for 10 more saves lost 10 more now i have 10 /
boys lose leadership n run
thrakkas waagh
30 boyz got assualted /25 wounds /saving on a 6+ /failed 20 /30-20=10[still fealess cuase of thrakka waagh]after combat resolves /roll for fearless check /ahm 20 saves well on a 6 plus save i[ failed 10 of them][ save 10 of them][30-20=10-10=0] boyz r gone one fell swoop
units like beserkers ungodly of attacks
and other units with multitudes of attack with initiative better than boys 2

yes i hAve had my boys get wipe in one assualt by a 10 men beserkers its brutal
fearless lil to op on horde army with save of 6+ orks n tyranids

Also Ragnar didn't do it by himself... He had the wolf priest, 4 pair of wolfclaw termies, and a TH/SS termie on the charge that did that in our game. ..... Really Killy Good on ya ORKS.... Twisted Evil
