Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Your issue is that the Tau Sept will not only have buff(s) equal to or better than the other septs, but also gets all of the special characters, right? Frankly, that will probably be an issue. Mrines have been living with this since 5th codex. IT's a valid complaint, but it'll fall into deaf ears.....

Re: Drones, unit coherency and Tidewall

I guess it was overlooked, as they might have forgot that drones become another unit after deployment
DS8 turrets cannot be used from within a tidewall as well

Re: Feel No Pain like abilities "stack".

That 'any' word precludes stacking with itself. The same way the fireblade's rule would let it stack if it was 'within 6" of a cadre fireblade', the ethereal one would be equally phrased. This 'a' instead of 'any' was the reason people thought drone controller could stack. The FAQ changed that ...

Re: What's the best support systems for a stormsurge?

I don't know if the ruling can allow you to shoot at characters that Deep Strikes within 12" and ignore the "can't shoot if not the closest" because of the EWO wording or not? EWO triggers immediately after a unit is set up on the table. If your opponent deep strikes the character be...

Re: Making a Brigade

Yeah the buffs stack. Sniper Drones easily reach a +2 to-hit modifier. However the guns itself are lacking punch It's just a bunch of S5 AP0 D1 hits *yawn*. I wouldn't say 'easily' at all. You need to spend at least another 105p and 2 slots just go get them down to BS3+, and you need 5ML to get BS2+

Re: New 8th FAQ

even if being speed bumps aren't the main use for Pathfinders, they are highly adaptable and they can do it. I'd still use drones or kroot hounds instead, but I can see their use as that.

Outrider exists, after all :P

I think I'll use it mostly for 2 things:

- backfield objective holding
- with QFCs

Re: Points will not be adjusted outside of Codex/Chapter Approved books

Space Wolves stuff had its points changed as well.

FB people aren't the game designers, so what they say might not be translated to the released material.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

noticed another thing on the new SM codex: if you put people from different <CHAPTER> or even without it in the same detachment of a unit with <CHAPTER>, the latter won't get any benefit of its own chapter tactics. Likewise, you can put Aun'Va and a Riptide of your own <SEPT> in the same detachment,...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Watching winter SEO's SM codex review, I've noticed some units have decreased in points (some more than 10). So, I'm hopeful we'll see serious point changes among our units with our codex!

Re: New 8th FAQ

I'm glad shield drones got fnp ... that said I wished it was a 4+ On another note someone brought a question that I'm a bit puzzled about. It's about EWO and drop pods. So here it goes: Do units that disembark from a drop pod that DS 13" away, get to still be targeted by those with EWO if they...
