Random things noticed Orcs can not overwhelm with shear number of hits any more. Need to take AP. Bikes are back on the menu. No longer possible to assault out of vehicles, probably not needed, just need to time the disembark to the end of the turn and the assault to the beginning of next. Crisis Suites are rather good in close combat. Grots rocks.
Thanks for this batrep, awesome as always! I really like that you kept the batrep fluffy whilst also including rules bits in italics.
I think that the new defense mechanic definitely means that lists need to be overhauled to be able to deal with all sorts of threats. I think every orc list would do good in having at least a unit of specialists with rocket launchers or railguns.
On the Orc side, what changes would you make for a rematch?
Well, it depends on. Probably it will be a totally different army next time. More rokkits, maybe a group of shootas with some machineguns. Scorchas. Goblin Artillery.
But if I would change a few things to the list used I think it was the nobs and the boss that under performed a bit. So I would probably give the nobs Energy Swords to handle the armor and replace the boss with a mek with some dakka.
(We had decided to houserule that different weapons in a squad can choose different target. The rules are not quite obvious on this)
Is there any official ruling on this?
Like, can a vehicle fire its cannon at an enemy vehicle while its MG fires at infantry? Can an infantry fire its rifles at an enemy infantry squad, while the rocket launcher in the unit fires at an enemy vehicle? Or does in one unit target the same enemy unit? onepageanon
I'm sure anon will give you an official ruling soon, but we do what peta said. If you have a unit of marines with assault rifles and one model with a plasma cannon, we say that the rifles all fire at the same target but the cannon can fire at something else. I look at it as the rifles may be effective shooting at an infantry unit but not so effective towards a tank...let the cannon fire at that. For what it's worth
