  1. The Nexus has not been released yet (all we have seen are renders). You can proxy him with just about anything.
  2. I wish I could, looks like a lot of fun, but I won't be able to play at all in June, and will likely not be able to play after mid July either :(.
  3. I'm impressed that you were able to field that! That's 3 packs of drones you needed to buy!
  4. Well if we're going that route... The start of the new Shasvastii remodels!!! ...What? He said I could dream...
  5. I'm not sure how viable this list is with no Dr. Worm and 3 TAGs, but... Onyx Contact Force ────────────────────────────────────────────────── 10 XEODRON Red Fury, Blitzen / Heavy Pistol.

  6. I think the best response to this, and questions regarding what "special dodge" means, is that the grenade is a BS attack that has the same properties in FtF as any other BS attack: if you win, you "dodge" the attack by shooting first, out-maneuvering while shooting, or something else to justify not getting shot when you were shot at. The only difference is that you do not need to target the attacker with it. You only need to place the template such that it blocks line of sight to said attacker.
  7. 1. Yes, the example in the rulebook clearly spells this out. This thread seems to be an answer question 2... but I could be wrong. 3. Yes, but why would you, when you can just walk? Or are you talking about using it in (very) difficult terrain?
  8. I was looking for a reason to branch out of Onyx and into MAF... I think I've found my motivation. Hopefully, shipping costs to the US aren't too onerous.
  9. OK, yeah. I think the problem then is just that the rules specifically make you declare a route (without measuring) as specifically as possible because LoF can be gained or not by how you move a model from one place to another. It seems that most people DON'T do this and simply say "I'm going to move to here" or some variation thereof, usually measuring along the way (which is also a rules no-no iirc). In order to place a template, you can't just fudge this step in the movement declaration (and to play strictly by the rules, you shouldn't ever).
  10. I might be misunderstanding the problem, but I think what he's saying is: "what if the move is the second short skill declared after the template has been placed?" The way BS attacks work, the attacker is allowed to choose where the BS attack takes place (giving themselves the best bonus for range/cover/etc.). The way template attacks work force you to place the template on declaration, which might not necessarily be in the best range band if the target moves as a second short skill, after you've already placed your template. What is the correct way to resolve this situation? For the sake of argument, assume that the target shot as a first skill when they were in a -3 range band and in partial cover for the attacker, then moved closer (out of cover and into the attacker's +3 range band) as a second short skill. If I am not interpreting the question correctly, just say so and ignore me :P.
  11. Speculo is not available in Onyx.
  12. This is false, is it not? "» The Template only applies its effect on each affected trooper if the Attack Roll is successful. " Since your attack roll was not successful (it was beaten by the crit), the others don't get hit. Nevermind, I read the example again.
  13. Thanks, that explains a lot.
  14. Wait, where'd you get this from? Did you mean 0.5 SWC, or points? Looking at post-humans mk.5: FO model with E/M grenades and dual SMG costs 10 points MMLX model with mk12 costs 17 + 0.5 So, unless the mk12 costs a crap ton of points, MMLX is fairly expensive.
  15. Yes, but as is evident in this thread, IJW's opinion on the matter can be subject to change .
