Re: Farsight Enclaves Wave

Ok, I've got the new version, some details: All formations that can be taken as part of the Dawn Blade are in, regardless of if they were from the base codex or Mont'ka. Full list below. Formations are unchanged. Dawn Blade detachment details are included. I originally purchased the ePub version a f...

Re: TAU RUMOURS & UPCOMING RELEASES

Yep, definitely changes things.

To be clear one of the auxiliary formations lets you take either of the two codex flyers individually as well, they aren't brilliant but it's an option if you don't want to take the drones. I've got a Razorshark not doing a lot so this works nicely!

Re: TAU RUMOURS & UPCOMING RELEASES

Not sure if this has been posted yet but the auxiliary options for the Hunter Contingent have been leaked, interestingly there are two options I haven't seen mentioned in other posts. You can take a Drone Squad or either of the two flyers individually as Auxiliary options to meet the Hunter Continge...

Re: Commander loadouts

My standard commander load out tends to be: Commander: 2x Missile Pod, Target Lock, Iridium Armour, Drone Controller, PEN chip. He'll then usually sit in Crisis Suit squad kitted out as below Crisis Shas'vre: C&CN, MSS Crisis Suit: 2x Missile Pod, Target Lock Crisis Suit: 2x Missile Pod, Target ...

Re: Building my first Tau Army

I often look at my Tau collection and think if I had planned it from the start again I might do things very differently! I've got a few things that while I really like the models I don't actually get any use from them, as expensive as 40K is it makes sense to really plan your purchases as a new play...

Re: Riptide - Who has stopped taking it?

Still taking mine to every game if only, as a previous poster said, because I spent so long assembling and painting the thing! Aside from restricting our ability to team Riptides with Commanders and the like (which I never liked too much) they haven't really changed dramatically. As a speedy tough u...

Re: 7th Edition Changes Discussion

That being said, I've had to switch my game plan slightly to accommodate some of the changes in 7th. Instead of the Buffmander, I have decided to bring Darkstrider. He is a really nifty asset and no one expects the hail of Pulse Rifle storm outflanking into their deployment zone. So far, when he's ...

Re: 7th Edition Changes Discussion

Reposting my comment that originally got eaten when the thread was renamed. The changes leave me somewhat torn. On one hand I'm really happy that Devilish will potentially get some good use again; I've got 3 that I put a lot of effort into painting! Jinking around with a 3+ cover save and the new da...

Re: Firebase Support Cadre - Our new 40k Formation

As I understand it you don't even need to Ally in Tau. Just the Firebase. That's my understanding too. Thus a Space Marine might look like : Primary: Codex : Space Marines Allies: Tau Empire (or any possible other ally such as Imperial Guard) Inquisitorial Detachment : Codex : Inquisition Formation...

Re: Firebase Support Cadre - Our new 40k Formation

I put a couple of point in the other thread but I've fleshed out my thoughts more thoroughly below: Positive: ⋅ This really helps Railsides shine, previously the main issue was fluffing the armour pen roll with the single shot. Taking them in this formation really helps avoid this issue. I...

Re: For the Greater Good: Firebase Support Cadre Sharing

Picked this up as well, pretty decent little read for what is essentially less than a pint of beer in change (I do live in pricey London though!) If you are going to be running the units needed for the formation then taking them with this new datasheet substancially improve their performance. Unless...

Re: New Tau player, what should I start with?

It's hard to go wrong with the Battleforce, especially if you can pick one up for an independent retailer that offers discounts. Everything in the box is a good pick with the possible exception of Stealth Suits but you're basically getting them free anyway. Beyond that it's hard to pick a bad unit i...

Re: Old Mech list in 6th ed, Viable or no?

Big fan of mech lists personally, both from a theme/ fluff perspective and from a gaming perspective. I also think they work quite nicely with the new book in 6th ed. What really pushed me towards mech was the Space Marine book or rather the change to Thunder Fire Cannons making them barrage. Marine...

Re: Vespid's new light?

Well, I'm about to take a plate of humble pie here. I played Vespid lately against a friend who runs a lot of Sisters at my LGS. I wanted to create a list running stuff I don't use a lot, so Devilfishes, Broadsides, Drone Squads and Vespid all made an appearance. I wouldn't eat too much humble pie ...

Re: Specialized Vs. Mixed Configuration Battlesuits

I'll echo the above posters and state that it's largely dependent on your list. Saying that, I've never really come across a situation where I've thought that a mixed load out Battlesuit would be nearly as useful as a specialized one. I pick Crisis Suits when I want a job done and mixing the load ou...

Ah, I see! The shoulder piece plugs into the bottom of the shoulder pad and the forearm attaches to one side of that.

Forgeworld Crisis Suit Arms: Assembly Question

Hi ATT, a quick assembly question if I may!* I've recently picked up a Forgeworld XV84 to use for my Crisis Suit Commander and, being that it's my first Forgeworld Crisis Suit, I've come across a point where I'd like some assistance. I'm having difficulty working out how the new Forgeworld pieces in...

Re: Tau Commander problems

If you're picking a commander from Tau Empire it's hard to pass up on the Iridium Armour, it massively improves your surviveability if only because of not being doubled out by missiles. Beyond that I see the Commander as more of a force multiplier than a beatstick, picking combinations of Drone Cont...
