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

One more thing to add that I just thought of. With Blast Templates gone, there are no ways to do damage to multiple units, regardless of how close the units are together. The whole thing really doesn't make sense. The "blast" being just a number of hits is weird. A dozen models all base t...

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

CIBs are just plain better than BCs. If you want BCs, take XV9 Hazards - they're better than BC Crisis.

CIBs are also better than PRs in all cases, except for 2: base Marines and Plague marines, but only by a negligible margin. And that's with PRs on half range!

Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

Have one more:

Was it intentional to make DX-6 Remoras main weapon, the Long-barrelled burst cannon, only Heavy 4? It used to be Heavy 6 in Imperial Armour 3: Taros Campaign second edition.

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

I liked the flamer template, but the blast one is long gone and I'm not sad at all. Even worse, drop pod scatter roll. Every time someone used it, discussions regarding the correct angle would erupt.

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....
