|Last Black Templar piece I painted, not even half done.. no worries, the Pack doesn't mind the smell of incense :-)|
So new BT update is out, and it has made some interesting fixes, thou not sure they're enough to draw me back. I was really drawn to the fluff of the Black Templar's, and started cranking out an army. Diving head first without really researching. I was researching a bit, checking various lists for good n' bad units, but never actually researched the Army. Let me tell you, trying learn this game (5th Edition), with a older codex is TOUGH! There were a numerous amount of discrepancies, issues, etc. Too confusing.
Won't give up on them, but promised myself I wasn't investing in BT's until they get a new codex, and a two page update on the internet isn't going to cut it.
No matter, I can use the Razorback, Land Raider, and two Speeders I painted for my Space Wolves to zip around in.
comment response, "Yea, I was going to post that question with the Batrep, just didn't have the Batrep done."
2(Hive Tyrant/Gaunts) units win an assault against 1(Grey Hunters) sm unit.
The sole remaining Grey Hunter fails leadership, falls back 5 inches.
We rolled for sweeping advance, starting with the Gaunts (they catch him)... does the Hive Tyrant roll for sweeping advance? If so, Does the Hive Tyrant have too?
Obviously Space Marines cannot be destroyed by a sweeping advance, if caught they "continue to fight normally", which isn't accurate as the next sentence states that they are subject to the "no retreat" rule, hence the lone guy makes #saves, based on the wound difference. Is this correct?
If the HT has to Sweep Advance, is it ordered? So in our example. The gaunts catch the SM survivor (sweeping advance), do you immediately resolve the 'no retreat' saves, then sweep the HT or roll all sweeping advances?
In our case it didn't affect the game, as the lone survivor didn't make his saves and was destroyed, however the question arose as basically Joe didn't want to leave his Hive Tyrant out of close combat to get shot (understandably). We couldn't find anything defining in the rulebook, but it just didn't make sense (to me) that you would lose control of all your units. Example, three units assault one, win, and then all of them make a sweeping advance at once, regardless of the possible outcome of sweeping advance 1, 2 or 3 (if it's ordered).
Played my 14th game this weekend. Good game Space Wolves vs. Tyranids. Had some fun, laughs, and hammered out more rules. Collectively we made very few mistakes. Will have a couple of questions soon thou.
Didn't get alot of pictures, but did get some of the over engineered game table, that is not finished. So in closing pictures of the "unfinished" over engineered game table of uberness, enjoi
