Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And also, since people suddenly seem interested in statline changes, besides BS4+ (which has always been the case) what changes do you want? T6 battlesuits or increased move characteristics or something? Mostly just BS 3+ on Battlesuits (maybe excluding Stealth Suits, as they are considered less el...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

That convo gives me a sinking feeling about our codex. It seems like they don't care about us if they are talking that dismissively, and without some core stat line changes I don't think we can be competitive. My poor Tau might be sitting on the shelf until 9th :( I really hope it was just a case of...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Something that might concern us? I'm thinking 'crons though :sad: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1952017515118878&id=1575682476085719 My primary guess is Necrons and the big thing is they are releasing the Silent King as a Necron Primarch level character. Secondary guess is a new X...

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 m...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Here's a fun question: What if railguns all had the sniper special ability? they already have ?? No they don't, they can't target characters regardless of whether there are other models closer. But to answer the question of 'should they give railguns sniper?' the answer is heck no. A pair of Hammer...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Especially considering DE are a candidate for major release (also tau are rumored to get a "big, not quite tau" release when our time comes) This is the third time I've heard "big, not quite tau." What the heck does that even mean? My hope is a T'au Auxiliary Codex (Kroot, Vespi...

Re: Losing CiB Given the Eldar Autarchs lost nearly all of their flexibility (just flat out all of it for infantry & wings, nearly all of it for Jetbikers), plus a lot of the Exarchs lost potential wargear (Swooping Hawk Exarch lost the Sun Rifle for instance), I wouldn't be surprised if they to...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My biggest concern is I put my painting on a halt because I am not sure which Septs will be featured with their coresponding special rules. To be fair you can run them as whatever Sept you want regardless of how they are painted. Personally I just paint how I like, then I'll run them as whichever s...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Commanders and crisis suits - These suits need to only equip 2 weapons, especially commanders (maybe the commanders have access to one additional relic weapon). I think we all have a sense that the 4 FB commander is just silly. I would be ok with this coming with a slight point reduction. Interesti...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What I want: Different sets of Markerlight bonuses you can pick from. Some Sept that doesn't allow you to take Markerlights, but units have the BS bumped up to 3+. Or even just a general rebalancing to have all Suits and vehicles be BS 3+. Given the limit to MLs now it makes sense to have a higher b...

Re: New Codexes announced

I am curious what a new codex will do about unique characters. To the best of my knowledge the tau race is fairly short lived, 40 to 60 years with the only mentioned exception being O'Shovah. Farsights longer lifespan of a couple hundread years is due to his ancient blade stealing life from his sla...

Re: 8th Ed: Cyclonic Ion Blaster vs Burst Cannon

The way I think about it is what is the most efficient platform for different weapon characteristics. Burst Cannons are basically identical to Pulse weaponry in terms of Strength, AP, and Damage. So we have the choice of putting Burst Cannons on suits or taking a comparable number of shots via Infan...

Re: Multiple ATS on a single model

You've dashed my hopes and dreams! I was gonna have a stormsurge with a bajillion AP -3 rocket attacks!

Thanks for the clarification, I thought it was a little odd, but couldn't find the reference that said otherwise, thanks for setting me straight :)

Multiple ATS on a single model

I was browsing through the rules again and noticed that there is nothing saying that items from the Support list must be unique per model. The text is the exact same for taking items from either the Ranged Weapons or Support Items lists. So RAW a Riptide, or Stormsurge, with 2 ATS is legal. Do you g...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

The changes to Marker's this edition have really altered the Tau playstyle. Our guys have always been baseline BS 4+, but that was easily overcome with just 2-3 marker hits per squad. Now the best a crisis suit will ever be is BS 3+ w/ reroll 1s, and that requires 5 MLs. Given how prevalent MSU unit...

6+ Markerlights, wasted or cumulative?

When I first read the new Markerlight rules the second thing I thought (the first being that these rules are a lot less forgiving) was the max you could add to a units shooting was +1 To Hit (not +1 BS, which is a distinction that is very useful for Rail weapons), but rereading the rules it seems a ...

Re: 2k Mobile Cadre

Thanks for the response! I have considered making an Enclaves list, an all Suit army would be great, but the fluff doesn't work terribly well for me. Plus I like the Tau Warlord Chart and Signature Systems more than the Enclaves. If I did drop the FW and switch to Kroot my list would look like this:...

Re: 2k Mobile Cadre

The goal of my list is simply to do well in a friendly environment. My meta varies wildly, I've seen Eldar Wave Serpent lists, Dark Angels Termy lists, several other Tau lists (one infantry heavy, another with more balance). I haven't seen a necron list yet, though. So my army should be able to have...
