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...

2k Mobile Cadre

Hey all, this will be the first Tau list I've posted, so please bring on all the suggestions you can think of :) The purpose of this list is to do well in games at my FLGS, the models I have now are a Riptide, Battleforce, and Crisis Team. There are a lot of widely varying armies being played so I w...
