Darrell brings us some more of his ideas on deployment for your Warhammer 40K armies… this time we see some Tau face off against the Imperial Guard!
This happened to my friend, but he always steals the initiative if he doesn’t deploy first.
isnt that illigal
ahh, and sanctity of the game has been lost…
and it maybe looks strange if you always throw a 6, so if you see your opponent doing that, use his dice. Or you have to let him take lots of leadership/pinning tests, and if you are a nid player, use the doom. but darrell wanted a dice that always throw a six so…
Pathfinders you mean
Fire warriors you mean. Two things give it away, first is the pulse rifles, pathfinders can’t take them. Second is the leg armor, pathfinders don’t have leg armor, only a breastplate.
Nice to see other army feedback has been taken onboard, go BoW !!
Oh. I always let my opponent choose if they want to go first or not. Perhaps in a tournament you have to roll, but I don’t really mind.
Could I ask what the tanks in the middle of the line are? They don’t look like Chimeras but heck are they lovely.
@bubbles15 – They’re resin kits from Battlebuild.
Check out Darrell’s video on them:
I’ll need to re-upload them first give me an hour (or so) and they’ll be done.
With my usual verve and instant responsiveness – cheers, much obliged. I’ll look them up this eve at home.
I’ve read of individuals that have practiced to throw dice so the roll straight… that is so they roll like a wheel… the sides never come up… if you’re fishing for a 6 you got a 1 in 4 chance,… 5+ a 50/50 chance etc… and since the 1 and 6 are opposite you can roll 2-5 to make those terminator saves all day. just watch for guys who seem to line up their dice, prefer to roll only a couple of dice at a time or otherwise have unusual dice related behavior.
Heh, I always try to set up so I can take advantage of a seized initiative. But I do tend to play quite aggressively…
