Re: Digitalhawk booting up Suit Systems

Welcome! And also all the times people argued clearly wrong rules or calculated army points to sneak more units in to try to get an unfair advantage in a game. Agreed. We all know that guy . What's especially frustrating is when they're clearly wrong and want to settle the disagreement with a "...

Re: Rule question: Wall of Mirrors

When exactly are you able to use Wall of Mirrors? At the start of your shooting phase and it lasts until the shooting phase is over. Isn't the Stealth Suit's ability to get an effect from the Wall of Mirrors contingent upon their proximity to the Ghostkeels? 6" I believe. If so, then naturally...

Re: Farsight Enclaves: Future? IS there one?

Hello all I have a question about formations. do the troop choice and HQ in your formation go towards your compulsory troop and HQ choice? As I have never use formations and I am a enclave player we are always light on the model count and points. BRB I'm not sure I understand your question... but t...

Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

@Derp - the Ethereal entry in Kauyon no longer points to a page. It more or less just states "pulse weapons" and then lists a few exceptions. See Ethereal entry on p.61. This entry explicitly replaces 2012 codex version.

Re: Drilling Barrels

I think mine is 1mm for small weapons like Bolters. 1.5 - 2mm can be used for Fusion Blasters and such. I'd buy a set at the hardware store. Should be much less than $10 for all three.

Re: Fire Warrior Breacher Team Discussion

Fluff comment, but I just thought how 10 man squads don't make sense for Tau because of the number of fingers that they have. Since they have 3 fingers + thumb on each hand, they would probably use either base 8 or base 16 numbering as standard, so the thought of having a 10 man squad probably woul...

Re: Tau Hunter Contingent Formation

I had a Stormsurge and an OSC shoot a unit at bs 9/10 and had ignores cover through markerlights.... The unit disappeared. I'm sorry but stuff like this is just utterly pointless. Something shoot at something else and it died. Gee, really? Even if you added what unit got shot is still adds very lit...

Re: Tau Hunter Contingent Formation

So this does take away some of the sting of the hunter contingent then because now you can only have an increased ballistic skill of max +1 unless you use the network marker lights. But it also now gives a better argument of a buffmander spreading his special rules to those other units. Wait... why...

Re: KV-128 Stormsurge Ballistic Suit Discussion

It seems super straight-forward to me.

Question: What's the maximum range of the weapon?
Answer: 30"

So... add 6" to that. Anywhere in the weapon's profile that is "30", replace with "36". The 20"-30" profile becomes 20"-36".

Done.

Re: Devilfish builds

I often times do upgrade the Devilfish to SMS over drones when it take it... which isn't very often. It synergizes well with the range of the pulse rifle firewarriors that disembark.

Re: Hunter contingent synergies

The email respondent said they have no idea about Target Locks. So, how's that being ruled then?

It's not surprising to hear this is not over-powered. I think it has nice synergy, but the other formations are where the real meat is.

How'd the OSC perform?

Re: Hunter contingent synergies

Great write-up, Boomwolf.

I'd really like to see the revised version with Vector Strike's new information! Also, I highly suggest all Tau players save/print that email Vector Strike shared for future rule lawyering.

Then yes, the Tank Hunter sharing is debated still.

Re: Hammerheads+Hunter Contingent

As for Tank Hunter... if Longstrike is in a unit with two other Hammerheads, then ALL THREE have Tank Hunter. BRB: " A unit that contains at least one model with this special rule re-rolls failed... ". The USR wouldn't be shared because of the Hunter thing; it's shared because the unit siz...

I just don't get the rear armour thing. Haven't you heard of a ricochet shot? :) In seriousness, I think it's supposed to be sort of like the Lance special rule, but Lance specifically would not work, of course. I think the fluffy answer is the one you already gave. The unit is firing from the shad...

Re: Contingent Rule and Target Lock

on a side note, would markerlight hits inside a group of units using contingent benefit from those same mls, or would the ruling on target acquired deny the use given now this group of units work as a single unit for all shooting purposes? In my opinion, I believe the answer is "no"... if...

Re: TAU RUMOURS & UPCOMING RELEASES

(in fact, Farsight's ability to take a crisis bodyguard team is replaced by the commander team). Not precisely correct. It's an either/or. In FSE supplement, Farsight can either take the up to 7x Crisis Bodyguards, or some/all of the Command Team. I'd say almost certainly there's a FSE-esque book o...
