Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Interesting tidbit on the new DG article: The Adeptus Mechanicus are being re-armed for the new edition with their best codex ever. This book will contain rules for fielding the Cult Mechanicus, the Skitarii and the Knights of the Questor Mechanicus, alongside – for the first time – powerful faction...

That's right so you have 2 shots per rig with a 67% hit chance per shot. T

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...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Not a tank. Not a Codex unit. And definitely not within Hammerhead pricing range. BUT. The Tigershark AX-1-0 IS capable of removing a Landraider turn one. And my regular opponent now hates that plane because of it. It's the same cost as Longstrike plus two Hammerheads. It hits on 2+ just like Longs...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

In the beginning I fell for the siren's song of new vhicles rules... but they aren't that good for Xenos as they are for Chaos and Imperium. I might even use Railsides instead of Railheads! More than 200p for 1 S10 AP-4 D6(+D3 MW) and 8 S5 AP0 ignore cover/vision isn't that hot

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Yeah, if we can take anything from the new books, if its not currently made or on the sprue you will not see it as an option in the book. On that point though, I really don't understand why they didn't make a rail rifle option for Crisis suits when they updated the kit, the XV8 is such a cool platf...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'd also love to be able to take a Commander in a Stealth suit or even better an XV9 hazard suit. Commanders in XV9 won't happen in the codex, as XV9 is FW stuff. Maybe in IA14, but I really doubt it (there's already R'alai, afterall) I'd also want our signature systems back, especially the onager ...

Re: Xv9 with DBBC is anything better point for point?

For 300p you can get 37 gun drones that will dish out 148 S5 shots. Of course, they can't fire past 18", have to target the closest enemy and don't have Manta Strike, but... 148 shots! Or a bit less in Firewarriors, able to fire 72 S5 shots at 15" and filling up your Troop slots (6x5 or 3x...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

The Fighter-Bomber is the one with HBC, Railgun or Ion Cannon options. Warhamemr Community made a mistake on labelling the one with Railguns the AX-1-0.

AX-1-0 brings forth guns the size of the Ta'unar's Rail Cannon, which is a massive weapon.

Re: 8th ed transports, EWO, and deployment

We play in a way I'll explain. Let's use a list for example: 3x Commander 3x Breacher Team 3x Devilfish 3x Crisis Team 2x Pathfinders 1. Unit count to be able to go in reserves are done by the number of total units you have in your list. As the example list has 14 units, at least 7 must start on the...

Re: Chapter Approved snippets - Matched Play changes!

The thing I liked the most in this edition is that we players can send feedback and suggestions on our armies. This means FLG, even if it indeed has any kind of influence over the design team, won't have their own vision of the game perpetually imprinted until a new edition arrives. The community wi...

Re: First time Tau advice

My first question is regarding the XV8s and whether i'm best running them all as crisis units (either 2x3 or 1x6) or can/should I use 3 to count as commanders? The commander from the coalition I intend to build as Coldstar but will be magnetised. 2x3, because the new Morale mechanics punish big uni...

Re: Chapter Approved snippets - Matched Play changes!

I was conjecturing about a proper application of the Obj Sec rule to the more 'elite' parts of the Troops section of every book, to disallow 20-man stuff getting it. The rules, as they will be presented to us by Chapter Approved, doesn't do that - any Troops unit will get it, including Kroot. Don't ...

Re: Chapter Approved snippets - Matched Play changes!

Exactly because of hordes. ObSec sounded like a good way to balance elite and horde armies. Playing against 120 ObSec Conscripts who are basically fearless is the opposite of fun. Anyway, there's still hope I guess. http://i.imgur.com/3nmQly1.png I agree with you. I would like to see this even happ...

Why? This was coming one way or another. It levels the playing field with SM, CSM and GK - which already got that rule.
Maybe horde armies could have been left without it, but if this really becomes an issue, they'll change it later.
