Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

if you fight elite, low-count model army with great armour saves, ATS is good. Against anything with 4+ or worse armour save, you'd do better with more firepower.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

This forum is so full of cynical pessimists. Is no one here able to hope for the best anymore? Is the 8th edition word for word exactly what you imagined when it was announced? Why shouldn't Hammerheads be able to profit from a Sept rule? It's not cynical pessimist, it's observation and deduction. ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

mechanicus have only walker and infantry, so no point in specifying those.

I really doubt a <SEPT> rule will affect a Hammerhead

Re: EWO and Characters

"as if it were your Shoooting phase"

Then you need to follow every limitation from the Shooting Phase. Can't fire at characters if they aren't the closest visible enemy unit.

If your city normally has tourneys going on, ask the usual TOs about it. I guess they might agree with me on this

Re: Y'Vahra Nova Reactor

I'd say you cannot use the nova charge the turn you arrive from escape thrust, because stuff that happens at the 'end of the movement phase' are all clearly spelled out. you come back at the end of the movement phase, while the nova charge must be used in your movement phase. Seems to me the game se...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

For one, I like to see Tau only being released next year, and after Chapter Approved. This could mean the book will already have any relevant FAQ applied to it and recude the need for (too many) corrections later. Also, the community keeps giving GW feedback, which means an even more balanced book w...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

yeah, those rumours were all baseless :P

<SEPT> already in the cahpter approved? Don't think so... I'd wager the 'objectve secured'-type rule will be there for all fations' Troops, though.

Re: Manta Deployments and "Half of Your Units"

The relevant rules: TACTICAL RESERVES Instead of being set up on the battlefield during Deployment, many units have the ability to be set up on teleportariums, in high orbit, in Reserve, etc., in order to arrive on the battlefield mid-game as reinforcements. When setting up your army during Deployme...

Then how someone will use their CPs to use relics? Some Stratagems can only be used before the game begins

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Just saw an update on this stuff. Looks like it wasn't really correct (just like rumours go). Seems it would be more like this: Thousand Sons Astra Militarum Blood Angels Dark Angels Space Wolves with the 3 last ones being released together.

Re: Skyray- leave it on the shelf?

Longstrike + Hammerhead friends are the best source of Seeker missiles. That's how far the Sky Ray has fallen.
It's closer to 'Pit Ray' now

Re: Why are the Krootox and Shapers uncompetitive?

Kroot Shaper allows Kroot units to re-roll wound rolls of 1. It goes well with Krootox, but not with the others, which are certainly faster than him (Shaper doesn't possess the Vanguard redeploy). He also lets Kroot units to use his Ld, but an Ethereal does the same and has higher Ld. His most speci...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I've been looking into the Tigershark AX-1-0 and I have a question; This tigershark, or the equivalent points in fusion commanders? (3) Tigershark is tougher, but with hitting on 3s wounding on 2s you probably only get 1 railgun through for 7 damage (14 against titans). Conversely Commanders have 1...
