  1. Hard to get the numbers correctly. Every one of my opponents played a tag. I'd assume the number much higher than 20%. But this is also not based on actual army lists but a feeling supported by my observations. I'd really like to have the Big-Tag-Weapons issue be solved and FA1 might be a way to go. I believe a small buff wouldn't be bad as well. OTOH the problem with tags is not their killing power but the all-eggs-in-one-basket issue and the relative ease to defeat a tag.
  2. Check the profiles on page 25. The Khawarij spitfire has the skill listed next to the name.
  3. It seems that making the brush wet with soapy water helps to protect the brush - i still wouldnt use a good brush though.
  4. Maybe Angels video helps ... "How to Apply liquid mask"
  5. However shock requires an ARM roll. On BTS weapons like the breaker rifle it is indeed 2 rolls. 1 ARM roll with shock and 1 BTS roll. This mostly matters if shock comes from marksmanship.
  6. The rocket launcher raiden is an insanely cheap and effective aro piece. 2 camo markers and a nasty template aro in a range band that JSA doesn't have plenty. I never played another outfit for good effect though.
  7. The 2 player starter boxes operation icestorm or operation red veil are the best choice for 2 people starting the game if the factions included have any appeal to you.
  8. I don't see an exception for the BTS roll nor that a mine isn't a legal target. The mine (like a trooper with veteran) doesn't suffer and ill effects, that's all. Usual rules should be still in place. IMHO it would need a rule somewhere that an attack that cannot cause an effect cancels/idles/or breaks the procedure after targeting. But that isn't there, so we have to apply a bts roll. OTOH you would have to prove that it's not a trooper under that Marker and I think it would be the only case where you'd have to do that and still be a camo marker.
  9. I don't see how being isolated effects the mine. But it would loose camo state.
  10. Hi. I just ruled on a tournament on this topic, but I have doubts whether I ruled correctly. Can you move an AI Beacon like netrods to another combat group with a command token? They do take a space in a combat group and provide an order. The text in Commands Tokens: Tactical Use however states that you can move *troops*. At other occasions the rules make sure that AI Beacons are not troops but deployable equipment (like you cannot repair them or data scan them (see FAQ)).
  11. The blast focus is at the same spot for both lines. The sentence is about where to place the template, not where the shot originates (and thus about the orientation of the template).
  12. I know what trouble some minis can make but to give another example... I had absolutely no trouble with the Tuareg sniper. It fitted like a charm.
  13. I kept many pdfs but not all. It doesn't give a great insight however. It's much more what you do with data than if you collect it. I assume data collection of CB is great. I hope they analyze the data well too.
  14. Works! Looks interesting, have to delve into it more.
