I don't disagree titan need to perform and the current list is a bit restrictive but past adjustments have show that people WANT titans to underperform. It's just not fun when a titan wipes a formation off the table each turn even if it's balanced. Personally I don't think split fire is really the w...

I like the idea of each weapon system being a separate activation for he titan. When I first got into epic myself I wanted titans to split fire and there's been lengthy debates about it in the past. It's even covered in the Designer's Notes at the back of the Epic rules and specifically stated that...

Huh. never saw that in the FAQ before.. I disagree with that ruling. The hit is made when you roll the dice and disrupt applies the BM at that point . That happens under 1.9.5 before allocation so VS not generating BM for hits taken shouldn't apply. At the point the VS negates the hit, the disrupt B...

Disrupt should still work. It adds a BM for every hit instead of every kill. You still cause hits even if it goes to the VS. the idea being you stack up enough BM to break the formation even if you can't kill it out right. As for the termies, minorus weapons are fixed forward. Drop in to the side or...

I consider Tau ideal as a matchup because they don't have a lot that can touch arty that likes to hide and they have a lot of infantry and LV which means the Quake/CLP gets to use the much better 4+ to hit. Having a lot of formations also makes it harder to spread out to mitigate the templates. on t...

I think I'd like to see the clp against some other armies before I say 100 is right. I kind of feel popcorn Tau was a perfect matchup for them. And yes, fearless was just added in the latest version. On the majoris.... I'd originally wanted to limit it to 1 but everyone else wanted it to scale for h...

Thanks for the report, and congrats on having been the first effective use of an majoris I've seen in years. :) About upgrades, skitarii intentionally don't have a lot of upgrades in the upgrades section. Instead, there are more taylored options available at the formation level. Demi-century: 8x hyp...

It's been a long time, but IIRC it was partly to focus the skitarii on the big titan weapons, partly to remove the spammable TLD, Partly to keep them from having cheap IC arty with the CLP, and partly to reduce the variants of Minorus to test.

It's a kit roughly on par with the old forgewold thunderbrick for size. That's about the right price comparative to FW as well.

If we can take a step back here for a minute, let's just see how it plays out at 100 points for the CLP. We don't lose anything by trying it and I suspect it won't be worth the points just due to how it synergizes with the rest of Skitarii and how it actually performs on the table. I'm also wary of ...

You can try the clp at 100 points, but 600 points seems a bit much. The quake + clp combo never really played out that strong on the table even back with indirect.

This seems to be common problem with some of these newer lists we've tried recently, overpowering of units when you look at comparable ones in the established approved lists... There was a design principle some years ago that you should aim to err on the side of overpointing rather than underpointi...
