Re: Fast dice rolling and saviour Protocol

So another discussion on the forum got me thinking. Attacks are meant to be rolled individually and are rolled I'm groups to save time. So if an opponent fires Ap0 weapons at some suits with 6 drones nearby and causes 6 wounds but I know he has a heavy support thing (I.e predator, the Russ, fire pr...

Re: Fortifications and Factions

First things first, if this was an "unbeatable" list we would have seen it used by now. How are you going to fit that many Earthshaker cannons (the immobile ones right?) on the board surrounded by that wall. You're going to have them this way and that for sure and not all of them will be c...

Re: getting to five markerlights

You could save points and get a Shieldline or a Droneport instead of the Devilfish. Devilfish (Gun Drones) - 127pts Droneport (Four Marker Drones) - 110pts Shieldine - 70pts The Devilfish has T7, W12 and a 3+ save. The Droneport is T7 W10 with a 4+ and the Shieldline is T6 W10 with a 4+ save. You co...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Being one of the last codexes is actually going to work out very well for two reasons: 1) Have you noticed a little bit of codex creep with each release? Most of the codexes released recently make the SM codex seem bland. With each release and feedback of the codexes, GW is able to tune and mold the...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So it seems I am right more and more we will be one of the last. Everything I've said about Tau in 8th is coming true. You totally guessed when a codex would be out based on no discernible information? That's called a blind guess. You had the same chance of getting it right as everyone else on this...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Well case in point, the Tyranid leaks highlighted a unit that has an interesting ability. The Deathleaper unit can set up within 6in of a character as long as the Deathleaper is 1in away from other enemy units. There is a Chaos Space Marine character, item, or stratagem (or something) that spawns a ...

Re: Can EWO stop drop pods???

I guess the simplified version of my argument is that rules trigger rules, not the lines within them. The act of the Drop Pod coming in to play is what triggers EWO, right? So it is essentially double dipping when you read and point out that disembarking is like coming in from reserves. Keep in min...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

For example, Strike teams should not have access to Guardian Drones and Breacher teams should not have access to DS8 Turrets. I can look at how both of those models work and see that they just do not fit with those teams both in fluff and table top application. I would also change it so that Guardi...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Well Seeker missile vs 2 comparison 1 Hunter-Killer Missile. A, Hunter-Killer doesn't need any additional support to fire, B, Seeker costs 20% more than Hunter-Killer C, while Seeker is 1 automatic wound and Hunter-Killer only has 55% chance to successfully wound T5-7 3+ Sv it does D6 damage D, 10 ...

Re: Can EWO stop drop pods???

I stole it from a reddit post that was mocking the people that were saying the game is over for T'au. Or it may not have been for T'au. I had to modify the length to fit the character restriction.

I am unfortunately not that clever.

Ah, I guess the thread is truly derailed now.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

We can look at the Riptide for example. It cost a lot of points for relatively weak firepower and impact on the game. Not many people take it anymore because it just doesn't do as well as it used to. I don't even have to go outside of the T'au codex on that one. A stock hammerhead with SMS costs 100...

Re: Can EWO stop drop pods???

to his quote here that is quite inflammatory in my opinion, as well as innapropriate for a member of this community: This was in response to this quote. So far you seem to be the only one who thinks otherwise. Even on tournaments it gets handled like I said. I asked for a source, then was told &quo...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Except it's really, really hard to pull this off. A squad with a -2 to hit takes 30 Markerlight shots to hit that 5th Markerlight tier, and then when you do hit that 5th Markerlight tier you still have -1 to hit. It's a joke and needs to be addressed. This was the same kind of complaint other playe...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

1. The markerlight table will likely be changed up much like the psyker table got changed. I doubt we will see an increase in BS because that effects the overall game rather than one type of army. We are also the only army that can raise our BS to counter -1 to hit type things. 2. Comparing smite to...

Well the best part about this edition is that they are pretty quick with the FAQs. So I guess we'll have a definitive answer sooner rather than later.

Experience. If you're really interested though you are free to ask TOs yourself.
