Just played my first game. My Harlies vs some Scouts. 4 turns, 1 lost Harlequin, 5 dead Scouts. Haven't rolled so many 6s to hit and so many 1s to wound in my entire life. Still, I got enough dice into the fray to take down the Scouts.

 

Harlies are OP. So very, very, OP.

Were you charging? In multiple on one combat, Harlies go down real quick.

Alternatively, bring down the first comps.y and laugh as they fail to bring down 5 terminators.

Well would you look at the time, it's zombie o'clock!

Harlequins are definitely strong but a Scout list should be able to hold its own.

Just occurred to me that GW could use their "Made to Order" service to bring out old Necromunda models. Add a free PDF to give them SW:A rules and they could bank a lot, both financially and in terms of customer happiness.

As I mentioned, I haven't rolled so many 6s to hit. In a combat of 3 Scouts vs 1 Harlequin, I rolled a 6 and 2 5s, and the Scout player got 2 1s and a 3. He had horrible luck, and kept losing combat (but never breaking), while I kept rolling 2s and 3s to wound. At the same time, I kept rolling break and bottle tests *just* within the bounds of what I could take. But I was on him in 2 turns, thanks to those flip belts, and then it all came down to who had more dice. And in one v. one fights, I had the advantage. Weren't too proud to jump on Downed Scouts either.

 

If it weren't for the flippies, the Prismatic Blur rule, and the number of attacks, it would have been a lot closer.

Oh I know that kind of luck. In my very first SW:A game my CSM team got pinned for days by my opponents AM team and failed every ammo roll I made (all 3 of them...) while he never had ammo issues. Still managed to force him to roll those bottle checks. He makes two of them until I had to make one and of course fail it and retreat.
At least my guys somehow managed to capture one of his while my Khorne guy died and my Leader got a free level up. :D
