Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you don't like

Instead of giving them Character, Drones should have a rule like this: 'drone units that started the game with less than 3 models (as their smallest proper unit are made of 4) don't give out KP, but cannot capture/contest objectives.' Check out the itc rules, they do a lot to resolve this issue. I ...

Re: Tau 8E match-ups

Aun'shi, Tactical Drones, and Stealth go on the table while about 1600 points of pain starts in the Manta (I actually own a Manta and have set it at the side of the table for a couple of matches) Isn't it very dangerous to play like that? Now you auto-lose if you don't have a single unit on the tab...

Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

I'll try to cut out questions already asked here. 1. When a XV109 Y'vahra activates its 'Overcharged Burst' nova ability, does it work for both main weapons or just one of them? 2. Why Technical Drones can't repair vehicles? Was it intentional or was it overlooked? 3. Do DX-6 Remoras already come wi...

Re: Velocity Tracker question

For now, yes. It might be an oversight from GW, though... or maybe not, as FW index has the same wording. I think this is how it's supposed to work. I guess you could imagine that the suit with the Velocity Tracker is routing data to the targeters of the other suits in the squad. Maybe? Sure thing....

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

How does the Tigershark AX-1-0 fire its Macro HRC? Macro weapons cannot be fired if the model has moved unless that model has the titanic special rule. The Tigershark does not have the titanic special rule nor can it enter hover mode to keep from moving. Any reasonable enemy will let you consider i...

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

On dakka dakka someone did some math and came up with thsi formula: ((cheapest unit cost + most expensive unit cost)/2)*20 = power level --- I have just finished going through the FW index, and seem a little confused. Please forgive if this has been answered or if I have missed something. Under the ...

Re: XV9 Hazard Support Team - 8th ed. discussion

Did a small mathhammering. Not counting MLs or enemy invuls.
This shows that 1x XV9 with DBBC+DC+4 drones and 2x XV9 with DBBC+ATS are better than 3x XV9 with DBBC and ATS

XV9 Hazard Support Team - 8th ed. discussion

Hey, folks! I love the visual of XV9s and I'd like to make them useful for us. So far, I've discovered that 2 XV9s with stock equipment are just plain better than 3 XV8s with 2 burst cannons; they cost exactly the same, but the XV9s will dish out more firepower (32 to 24 shots). Adding support syste...
