Re: Commanders and XV8s - What loadouts will you bring in 8th Edition?

I have yet to try CIB but I have to point out that taking Plasma Suit Squads have worked overall pretty well for me. I run them with 3 plasma guns per Suit and getting in a rapid fire range that is a whopping 18 shots. This really came in handy as I was low on marker lights and enabled me to still i...

High number of IG armies at my store would actually be somewhat equal in terms of drops.

Cadre Fireblades: Our true Markerlights

Haven't seen this discussed so figured I would bring it up, with all of the talk surrounding Markerlights and the best unit to run them maybe somewhat of a unique approach but why not focus on the Cadre Fireblade? For only 42pts. You get a character who hits on a 2+ meaning he can't be targeted if t...

FE Montka 2000pts. Pure Suits

Hello everyone, after a long hiatus I have decided to rebuild my Farsight Enclaves army as my xenos faction to run alongside my Death Korps of Krieg. This time around I am wanting to play them as close to the fluff as possible, so in this case a Mont'Ka styled army utilizing pure suits as that is wh...

Re: Rising Star: Cold Star Commander In 8th Edition

I believe he's talking about this section: http://puu.sh/w9lM7/47fadf5637.jpg It's a damn good catch - almost every other weapon has a '0' AP instead. Out of curiosity where in the book is this under? Id like to know beforehand just in case this comes up again with any other armies, thanks! Also th...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

Seems like if you want to run Burst Cannons you would be better off running them on Stealth Suits with an ATS for good measure since they can take one. It seems like Plasma is the way to go for Crisis Suits but I am curious, are Missile Pods worth a look or are they just to expensive now to even bot...

Re: Airborne Tau Army: Advice how to Field it

Forgeworld is definitely an option since that's why I'm using the FW barracuda! The turrets are definitely an idea however I don't know if they would really fit since their kind of static, however it would make sense if I were holding a position waiting for reinforcements like a landing zone so that...

Airborne Tau Army: Advice how to Field it

Hello everyone, it has been a little bit since I last played Tau and I am looking at once again fielding an army of them. I plan to go with the two-pronged approach, one of Pacific Rim themed army made up entirely of suits of Riptide class or bigger with some infantry support to fulfill required FOC...
