Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

There are some things that I think people have missed when talking about T'au. Pros: -Many of our units auto pass morale on the roll of a 6, the worst possible roll this will keep us around even with our guardsman like leadership. -We have Tidewalls, and while they're expensive, unlike in 7th Tidewa...

Re: Drones battlefield role slots

No, battlefield role and taking up a force organization slot are two different things. Saying that a drone has the same battlefield role as the unit that takes it means that if a group of Fire Warriors take tactical drones then they count as troops, same with Crisis then the drones role would be eli...

8th Edition - 50 Power Battalion

I wanted to see what everyone thought of this list based on power values rather than points. Does it seem to be missing anything? Does it look like it will have trouble with infantry, or vehicles? Battalion Detachment: HQ: Longstrike - Railgun, Two SMS, Two Seeker Missiles (11 Power) Ethereal - Hono...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I have seen the sunshark. The mortal wounds are less than you'd think they do, as they only rank up many wounds on big units-meaning units where mortal wounds don't mean much to begin with (easily wounded and poor armor mostly)-it's a horde thinner, nothing more. against noteworthy units, or MSU, i...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Our vehicles have something that few Imperial vehicles have, Fly. For most of our models they can only take away our shooting by killing them. We can charge an IG tank and it will be out of action for a turn even if our unit doesn't do any damage. If IG or perhaps even Space Marines try it, our tank...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

Leaving him embarked on a devil fish keeps him safe, allows him to retain mobility, and his invocation of the elements is actually boosted when measuring its AoE from the vehicle's hull. This will no longer work as of the last FAQ, since Ethereal abilities do not function anymore while embarked. I'...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

I like this idea, I've used Ethereals and sniper drone teams in the past, but never thought of giving the ethereal marker drones. I agree that if you want firepower and markerlights then you would go with this combination (I know I would). Unfortunately, there is no way to take an Ethereal inside th...

Re: Hit and Run, Vectored Retro thrusters

Initiative test are rolled on 1d6, and you need to roll equal or less than your highest initiative (6 always fails). So a Commander would need a 3 or less, crisis suits would need a 2 or less, and Vespids would need a 5 or less.

Re: Anti Chaos (Nurgle) List

The fire warriors and crisis suits will all fall easily to S8 AP3, however Hammerheads will not, take an Ion Cannon, and then you ignore the armor on most of his models while still wounding his bikes and infantry on 3+ and 2+ respectively (2+ always while overcharged) plus if you can use your fire w...

Re: Starting Again - Looking For Advice On Expansion

Where you go next really depends on what type of army you want to play, and how competitive you want to be. If you want to play in a lot of tournaments, then definitely an optimized stealth cadre and riptides are the way to go. Otherwise just get the models that look interesting or have rules that y...
