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.

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

Longstrike by himself isn't good at all, as you've posted. However, he works wonders with a Hammerhead firebase around him.

It's an expensive setup, but it will do stuff!

I don't think Crisis will be able to be troops anymore. SM lost the 'bike as troops' thingy.

Re: Culexus in auxiliary detachment?

The faction keyword limitation works for your entiry army, not only in detachments.

But said limitation only happens in Matched Play games. IF you manage to get yourself Open or Narrative ones, you can add to your army any kind of unit you want

If you have any kind of soul, you can leran how to manipulate the warp. Tau citizens do have souls, so technically they can learn.

Any unit with 3++ should be dealt with by volume of fire. Firewarriors seem to be the cheapest option, in my view.

Isn't Tau an elite army too, as (all kinds of) Eldar and Necrons? :P
