Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Judging from this community's hopes for the Codex, people will be disappointed regardless of how good it is. Changes to our statline (e.g. BS 3+)? Markerlights allowing units to shoot twice in the shooting phase? S14 railguns? None of those expectations are realistic.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I don't think the internal balance of our Index is as broken as some people think. Flip-flopping the first and last markerlight bonuses reduces most of the efficiency gap between commanders and competing units without even touching points-costs or unit/weapon rules. Currently the markerlight effect ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Even minor changes to the current markerlight table (like flip-flopping the re-roll 1's ability and +1 to hit) can go a long way towards addressing the internal balance of our index.

Re: Exploding drones?

You might be thinking of a post on this forum (not an official FAQ), and I maintain that's a ridiculous reading of the rules.

Re: Start Collecting disappears in the US

The other day I saw the Optimized Pathfinder Team (the devilfish & pathfinder bundle) was listed as no longer available -- but it's available to purchase in the US again now. I wouldn't read too much into the Cadre Fireblade and the starter collection being listed as no longer available; maybe i...

Re: Mathhammer - Markerlight Sources

First off, numbers: Points Per Markerlight Hit: (this would be the number of points dedicated to this type of unit to guarantee at least one hit and should only be used as a gauge of efficiency and not actual point costs) You're looking at the points investment to expect one markerlight hit -- not ...

Re: Breachers are still good

Yeah I know but my point remains. Breacher are worse than most other units in melee and their shooting is one of the best when in range. You simply don't want them in melee in general. Period. The problem is not that they die in melee, the problem is that you deny yourself their awesome shooting. I...

Re: Longstrike might not buff himself!

Are there examples of units in Age of Sigmar which have another unit's title as a keyword on their warscroll?

Re: Pathfinder Vanguard?

To be fair I was always talking about the special Drones since Gun Drones&Co obviously HAVE a Datasheet with all their rules in the Index while the special Drones only have the Datasheet of their parent unit. That's fair, but the rules for Gun Drones are provided on the Hammerhead datasheet jus...

Re: Pathfinder Vanguard?

Imo, interpreting "this unit" or "this model" to include separate units/models (or units/models who are treated as such) is the liberal interpretation of the rules, whereas my opinion is the conservative interpretation. After all, I'm not the one giving drones a plethora of free...

Re: Pathfinder Vanguard?

Drone Support says "From that point onwards, the Drones are treated as a separate unit." Vanguard says "...you can move this unit ..." The Drones are now a separate unit from "this unit" (the pathfinders), so I don't think they would get the Vanguard move. Panzer bring...

Re: New 8th FAQ

Seen Reece respond to this question on their latest review of the BAO format. Which part did you mean? That about Pesk or about the Deamon Lord? In both points he talks about abilities with KEYWORDS . No one disagree with this. The question is what is a keyword or when is a rule referenced to a Key...

Re: New 8th FAQ

I would have to say barring a typo on GW's part that the hammer head referenced is the name of the datasheet and not a keyword. Suppose also the rule says gunships, plural, which they do not use with keywords. Typically it would be something like TAU SEPT HAMMERHEAD GUNSHIP units if it was a keywor...
