Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

A lot of you brought up a lot of good points, with the Tau adapting and what not, but Nevar takes the cake with his post. I love the idea of a Tau titan, but it really doesn't fit when you could just have a super heavy tank or something of the like, a lot leaner profile, harder to hit. Lovely stuff....

Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

It seems odd to say this, but I'm a little disappointed with the experimental rules. You'd think this monster of a suit would be riddled with more special rules. This feels almost half baked. But who am I to complain, Tau have their own little Titan now. On a fluff note, it is flat out stated that t...

Re: New Battlesuits

These are rather quite lovely. If and when I start up a small Tau force, I'm going to try make my own battle suits. Thank you, you're an inspiration to us all.

Re: Handling the top armies? (Feeling dated)

Well I don't have much experience with Space Marines or AdMech, but I have plenty experience fighting Necron. Taking out Necron vehicles is easy as chips, markerlights and a sprinkling of railguns/fusion will slag them right quick. The real trick is their infantry. With Tau, I can see a few options....

Re: How to maximize my and my opponents enjoyment in each game

Something I've tried that might sound interesting is the use of a smaller board, say, 4'x4'.

I played my friend's Daemonkin and he played my Orks and we had a helluva time knocking each other's brains out in close combat turn two. I know it's not much, but this is my two cents.

Re: Clever Ork hordes

If they had los breakers or transport to get them up close without the kroot having an opportunity to shoot them or here was like 30 of them then yeah they will destroy them. Theoretically 10 Kroot can kill 6 Boyz without eavy armour from shooting and overwatch without support within 12" from ...

Re: The evolution of a 3rd ed Tau army to 7th!

From what I've heard of Daemonkins from my Grey Knight friend turned Khornate, they don't have a whole lot of ranged support outside of Defilers, Soulgrinders and Heldrakes. They also don't have access to a lot of the Forgeworld goodies. I've never fought them personally, but the only thing I can re...

I'm fairly certain they fire spore mines as well. I remember fighting them awhile back. They're quite brutal.

Re: Point spending alternatives/tactics

I'd agree with using Void Shields. You can get a network of three effectively covering 36" of board. This effectively shuts down most anti-infantry fire for about 150 blacksun filters. You can also get stuff from the Obstacles list. Tanglewire, anyone? Oh, as for your Biovore problem, Seeker Mi...

Re: Salgin's Farsight Enclaves

Those packs are designed for Space Marines, they might appear to be a little large for Fire Warriors. Though that shouldn't stop you, I'd love to see where you go with this.

Re: 1000pts, Aggressive all-comers.

I've fought Necron with my Orks here and there. Very tough, especially with crypteks or Decurion. I'm starting to see massed Warrior lists as well, which are proving to be infuriating to say the least. The layers of saves on Necron troops are tough to get past, though I have overrun these units in c...

Re: 1000pts, Aggressive all-comers.

It's an awful waste to throw away good Fire Warriors like that, but that's just the humanitarian in me talking. Though I want to pose the question, since you did mention that you're fighting with buddies, what armies are you facing? What are their usual tactics and compositions? Perhaps we can refin...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

Kroot would get massacred by Choppa Boyz on the charge and could (italicized, because it's a very real possibility) even provide the Orks with additional consolidation movement, something you don't want really.

Re: Clever Ork hordes

Being an Ork player myself and getting my arse handed to me by a veteran Farsight Enclaves player, I can suggest the following: - Misslesides coupled with markerlights will mincemeat us. The only way I can imagine any ork mob weathering this is by having a Big Mek with a KFF leading the unit coupled...
