Re: How do you actually deal with AV14 ?

My standard operating procedure for landraiders is to ignore them and feed whatever comes out of them a few squads of kroot or fire warriors while I win elsewhere. I've found this to be more effective than killing them for the most part. If they really must die though. Y'vahras as previously stated ...

Re: Akul Contingent

I'm thinking of cutting a huge whole in the hellbrute, basically a "U" like cut removing the head and up of the hellbrute while the stormsurge is stomping it into the ground and having the stormsurge's gun where its missile pods usually are pointed down at the hellbrute like it just blew i...

Re: Akul Contingent

I've actually had a few people not recognize it as a ghostkeel because the pose is so different from the stock pose, which makes me quite happy.

Need to buy magnets

I was wondering what magnets to you guys recommend and where to buy them? Same with green stuff. In the past the hobby store owner just ordered in magnets for me, but I moved this last summer and can't get them from him anymore. Sadly I never asked him what ones he bought so I'm kind of needing some...

Re: Akul Contingent Batreps

Yah, thinking that was rather bleak - though, Vindicare Assassin? Hurh? - is he using Allies just to pick up that character? Nicely played - just gritting your teeth and rolling forward tends to knock the steam out of an early rush for your opponent. He wasn't using a vindicare, I was. It was one o...

Firing arc for Seeker Missiles on Sunshark/Razorshark

I'm not sure what the exact fire arc for seeker missiles on our fliers is. Does it change when using a markerlight to fire the missile?

Often times our fliers shoot straight backwards with their turrets but the seeker missiles seem to be hull mounted. Does that mean they only fire forward?

Re: First tau list! Help and critique please

Your current army list and models seems like a fairly strong basis for an army. I've personally not used a drone net, but from other battle reports 4x4 squads of marker drones usually do a fairly ample job providing markerlight hits for your army. I doubt you'll need the extra drones in the stealth ...

Re: Akul Contingent Batreps

El'Eoro'D'Yanoi'Seri's coms cracked to life. Instead of the expected voice of El'Mesa'Raik her battlesuit was filled with the sounds of the rapid discharge of a burst cannon. It lasted for a brief moment before the following silence was cut off by the telltale whine of a missile being launched. &quo...
