I just finished a bat rep vs. a good friend of mine.

I included a malaceptor, and he did great. Take note, our gaming circle plays by the house rule, if you have a psychic power that doesn't have a weapon profile, there is no roll to hit. Take that for what it is.

He had Psychic scream and his overload power, and the overload worked well. It killed a daemon prince, as well as knocking off hull points from various hell brutes, and killed a few las cannons in Nurgle and Tzneetch marine squads. He even got into combat with a hell brute and beat it with a smash attack.

He was a great solid synapse choice. The pyschic overload did quite well. I only had one other psyker that rolled catalyst on the power table, so most of my dice were towards pyschic scream when in range and psychic overload. I won the game, and the malaceptor played a big part of that.

I'd say it did its job quite well, and tallied up a daemon prince, a hell brute (with some assists on the other brutes,) and some las cannon marines.

I had fun, he worked quite well, I would bring him again.

He did not survive the match, he died in the last turn when he beat the hell brute and was left wide open in front of the foregfiend, ouch.

Overall, I was happy with it. He stole the show with the Daemon Prince kill. It took two psychic phases, but the Overload worked. Was it good rolling? Maybe, but it's a game of dice. Good and bad rolls will eventually happen. I only got 1 catalyst off the entire game. =(

I'd recommend people trying him out. He was a great asset.

I think there is some debate over the wording of the non-shooting profile psychic witch fire powers, most people settle on needing to hit because it feels more like how it should work, but there are still people who will argue it over the internet.

Glad to see you got some use out of one of the many sub-par units in (or not in) our codex. Good job!

By that logic, Tau Pathfinders don't need to roll anything to shoot Markerlights. Unless you're consistent and allowing Tau Pathfinders to auto-hit all their shots you have a rules inconsistency.

If Markerlights require rolls To Hit, then so too do any standard Witchfire powers. Beams and Novas are the lone exceptions.
