Re: FAQ UPDATE: ATS now a must include on Suits?

Sorry for not being very understanding when it comes to the math Shenanigans but I'm guessing 3 CIB is better then 2 + ATS? Still kind of trying to figure out how to equip my suits myself...

FAQ UPDATE: ATS now a must include on Suits?

So the first FAQ for 8th edition has just been released and one of the biggest changes is now the ATS is amazing on Suits. The rulebook states that while stats of (-) can't be modified stats of 0 can, and ATS increases the AP characteristics of all weapons meaning now our Suits have some additional ...

Farsight Enclaves Pure Suits 2000pts. 2nd Attempt

Hey guys, even though I haven't gotten as many games as I have wanted over the last couple weekends I have been doing my research and feel I have come up with a decently strong list that will still fit my Mont'Ka Pure Suit themed army. As usual feedback is encouraged and thanks again for all your in...

Re: XV9 Hazard Support Team - 8th ed. discussion

Great analysis! Always have wanted to run these guys again and I'm especially happy to hear that the double Burst Cannon suits are the way to go. Anyone tried the fusion Cascades out? And have people found the Drone Controller or ATS better with the dual Double Burst Cannon Suits?

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...

Re: FE Montka 2000pts. Pure Suits

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...

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...

Re: Selling my Tau, Massive Army! *UPDATED*

$200 each or for both? Because i kinda hate to tell you but via online shops you could get 3 start collecting boxes and a commander for a bit less than 200€ (which would be about $150-$160) already. Just asking out of curiousity and to help you. I don't have money to buy models and pay for shipping...

Re: Selling my Tau, Massive Army!

Honestly I don't mind shipping internationally but since the person buying would have to cover it would probably not be worth it to them.
