Warren and Darrell take a look at the possibility of being able to buy terrain in 40K 6th ED, and how it might affect your tactics and strategies.
To be fair being able to buy terrain could be interesting option and if those have low enough points then it might also be used to full fill points that can’t be full filled any other way and only option would had been to buy more updates.
I seem to be having problems playing any of your videos today, anyone else having problems?
Buy AND place your own Terrain? For you to use?
This rumour sounds pretty good to me (as long as it isnt that random forest crap from fantasy I dont like the randomness).
I still think more boots on the field would be better than terrain but I’d have to wait and see what kind of stuff you can get. sentry gun turrets could be cool, like the Tarantula gun turret.
Terrain on fire is also very awesome.
So you can expect a table that’s bare in the middle with masses of terrain in each deployment zone
Actually I can see Darrel buying the minimum figures that whatever force organisation chart is in 6th then buying loads of hills ……. where the objectives go ……and you can’t kill hills ….
buy terrain for your army sounds good to me (Like the old Epic fortress rules)
regarding setting fires: terrain catches fire if you roll the firing weapons AP or above on 1d6 (how does that sound for an elegant solution).
regarding interactive terrain, I can see a scenario where they use similar tables to fantasy, if you are playing on a “death world”.
IIRC dropping a minefield existed as a Mission Card in 2nd Ed ….
4th ed marines had a whirlwind variant that fired genuine minefields rather than the minefield effect after a hit it can have now and there are other similar weapons like the eldar nightspinner, scout bikes that get to place a minefield and even the necron thing that effectively makes the whole table a minefield, so really it only went away for a little while in 3rd…
With terrain going up 60% I wonder if there could really be any truth in this rumour?
Some of the ideas are grand but not sure of dropping in bunkers and walls. I don’t think there are any foundations for these tbh.
Digging in would need at least one turn uninterrupted from enemy action Smoking woods are bad for your health, don’t do it kids. Should be a wind test with the scatter dice if a wood starts to burn to see which way the fire and smoke go.
I would love to see destructable terrain or even barrels of oil or something that you can shoot and explodes, damaging all units nearby. Imagine that next to an objective.
Alos, why are the Ultramarines in the vid fighting the Tau? Everyone knows the big blue guys are there to protect the little blue guys.
Could be alpha legion dressed as ultramarines, could be far sight enclave or similar rogue tau or it could be a subtle implication by the BoW crew that the rumour you’re referring to is a really silly idea that goes against the past 30 years of themes and story building in an attempt to justify why a brand new race the GW are invested in were able to survive while situated on the front doorstep of supposedly the most powerful space marine chapter and their descendants.
Or those were the models they had at hand while filming…
Sad really .. the shootiest army in a shooty game cant stand up to electrical pocket knives and medieval hand axes. Sure hope 6th edition 40k is less fantasy.
buying terrain for the troops to use? that sounds awsome, like the tau n eldar could deploy like those forcefields like the ones in dawn of war games. space marines with bunkers turrets n all would b cool too. I think that if a flamer fires into a bunker, seein as their usually closed in spaces the unit inside should take more damage because of the flamer being fired into the confined space
I think this will make playing nids even more interesting. they are made for the terrain… but not flamers.
stupid… that’s all I have to say… mine fields ok, other stuff like that, but c’mon dropping in bunkers? Wouldn’t work for the Imperium, the gearheads of the mechanicum and the Munistorum have their hands full enough handin out lasguns.
1 point per skull? I like this is for no other reason than to prevent codexes from getting too bloated with new model entrees making older ones less appealing. Now gee dub can release themed terrain instead.
Don’t you mean 1 extra point per skull?
personally not a big fan of the idea sounds interesting but (practically) sounds difficult also i suspect people would get excited about it, try it, then only a few people would stick with it P.S. i resent the accusation tau got nerfed there one of the few armies i have difficulty against and i believe they still retain some of the best value for points units in the game (damn hammerheads with decoy launchers/disruption pods)
I want terrain made of salt piles.
I would not wish salt piles on my deadliest foe. *wince*
Actually you should make a salt lake terrain board. With stacks teetering over the bed of dry cracked salt pans. would be AWESOMENESS in a jar!
Hope this is ruled in. Not only does it make sense as it would be more realistic. If it is, I will need to reconsider certain armies. There are some Imperial guard armies for instance that just cry out for trenches & bunkers that are placed in a strategic prepared positions rather than placed in a disjointed fashion over the table trying not to favour one player over another.
Im 50 – 50 on this
Don’t sit on the fence… it might be booby trapped if the rumours prove to be correct!
I like the idea that you can set terrain on fire, but buying your own terrain I don’t really like the sound of. Its an interesting concept but I don’t think it should affect the army size. So if you have a 2000pt game you should have 2000points of army + X points of terrain.
But how about if you could set your OWN terrain on fire after buying it? (possibly orks only)
I like your idea of the terrain allowance being supplemental to army size. Like you’d get X amount of terrain per 500 or 1000 points?
I have to say, these 6th edition rules rumors sound like they’ll be great for flamer heavy armies, like my Sisters…..with being able to flame terrain, plus the rumored stand and shoot rules, it seems like a non-close combat sisters army will still stand the test of time…even better perhaps!
Galactic estate agents lobbied for this…
i can’t see much use in barbed wire though, space marines would walk through it because scratching the paint slightly wont bother them. orks simply don’t care (although minefields would make gretchins a more viable option). nids would throw a couple of gaunts on top of it and walk over. necrons are metal so it wont bother them in any way. then every other army has tanks or skimmers that will just roll straight over it.
onto the rules themselves i like them both. burning stuff is always fun and buying a tall ruin to put long fangs in is always good.
i can’t image the Avatar would be to welcome on jungle worlds though…
How many points for a Bouncy Castle battlefield
boing boing pfsssssssssssssssssssssss No points. Chaos are banned.
this is booooooooooooring. i mean, Imperial Guard will just buy bunkers, the anyone who assualt loses bonouses as they stumble around while the commisar punches the heads off with the pistol and power sword. not a lot of Assualtling will happen, sure it’ll look good… but that’s not all we gamers want. JUST KEEP 5TH ED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
