Re: Win a Ta'unar Forge World competition

I was tempted to get a Baracuda and cross my fingers for the draw (figured there would be a lowish number of purchases this week given the time of year). But that is far less appealing since anyone in the US/Canada can get an entry free with no purchase necessary. That greatly reduces the odds of wi...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Expected to be honest, given the ML strategy we were given. I'm curious to see the comment from the FB page now though!

Re: PeeJs sept rebuild project

Shas'O'Kais (From Dawn of War) conversion, made from an old style XV8 and some XV25 bits. There's a pretty easy to follow PDF that you can follow, just google the name and "conversion", I think it's hosted at Eastern Empire.

Re: Farsight Enclaves ... road to a playable list !

What I've taken from this is that metallics can look at home on Tau stuff (even if just as wear).

Out of interest, is that red painted over a metallic base, or is the metallic wear just sponged/painted over the top as normal?

Re: Haechi's Rumor on Faeit 212

I had a little chuckle when I saw it on BOLs and actually wondered if they had asked for permission from anyone involved to post that. Even if there's no legal precedent to do so, it's still polite.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

(...)Darkstrider gives them a solid markerlight (on a 3+ as he'll have moved), the ability to fall back and shoot, and within 5” they'll be wounding marines on 2+ and most tanks on a 4+. You also get the 2 gun drones from the Devilfish for extra saviour protocols. It's surprising how survivable the...

Re: PeeJs sept rebuild project

Cheers, sadly the colour scheme I used would have been a mess on to replicate, it used OOP base paints and the main armour colour is a mix of 2 old GW paints. It was a silly idea to start with, but I've learned a lesson from it about future planning with a mind to expanding and replicating the schem...

Re: Is the Ethereals having control over other T'au confirmed now?

There's a little "flavour box" in the last codex that says something along the lines of "Aun'Va has always had a reputation among the ethereals of being able to successfully exert his will over the other casts even without the aid of technology". So vaguely, yes it's been confirm...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

And talking about a direct comparison of the shield vs gundrone configuration: In a tournament I played against a player with roughly 50 shield drones, 10 CIB Commanders, an Ethereal and 2 squads of Kroot hounds. I played 6 CIB and 3 quad fusion Commanders, roughly 50 gun drones and 2 squads of Kro...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

The only reports I've seen online of Tau finishing highly placed have been of the one list that has commanders, but also fireblades with gundrones in d'fish, not pure commander spam lists. Although admittedly I'm probably not looking in the right places to get reports from all over the place as I'm ...

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

The main reason I brought up the +1 BS battlesuit system is all of the people saying "GW would never give the elites BS3+, theyv'e never had that". Ralistically they already did and we did have that for a very small points cost and using up a slot on the suit that could have gone to anothe...

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

Honestly I don't think BS 3+ is that far fetched. In 7th we could get units hitting on 2s with just 2 marker hits. In 8th even with base 3+ for our elite options it would still take 5 markers to reach that same level. I think either one of two things will happen. 1) Suits go to BS 3+ base, and the ...

Re: What are the statistics of melta guns?

Honestly, I've always thought the 'roll 2, pick 1' mechanic was a bit naff. But this is a fantastic way to visualise and wrap your head around how it adjusts the odds for each value roll. It's pretty good.
