Re: Vertical movement question

Something like common sense. If you talk to your opponent beforehand and declare that huge mountain is not passable or even "overjumpable" then the problem would be solved. Common sense has no place in RAW though. Of course that's how'd you do it in casual games but in a RAW discussion th...

Re: So about those Riptide Wings...

On the bright side perhaps if they're allowing Grand Masters to take Dreadnight's they'll allow Commanders to take Riptides, Broadsides or Ghostkeels? They wouldn't have to release a new model to allow it - there was originally no difference in model for a Commander and a normal Crisis suit after all.

Re: Do shield drones get invuln saves on ablative wounds

I was just wondering...if the point of shield drones is to provide a bodyshield, do they get invuln saves on ablative wounds??? As written in the index originally they did. But an errata update changed it so that when you use them as a bodyguard they suffer a mortal wound which means they don't get...

Re: Homing beacon question

Jumping on the thread to ask something that's been on my mind since the index first dropped: Is there any rule stopping you from deploying a unit (i.e. Farsight) within 1" of an enemy unit using the homing beacon - instantly putting them in combat without actually have to ever charge (or suffer...

Re: Question regarding wounding

The rules specifically says that you must have visibility of the model, not unit. You shoot at a unit, but models from this unit must be in range and visible. The rules say you must have visibility to a model to target the unit, but attacks are still resolved against the unit as a whole not against...

Re: Question regarding wounding

I'm pretty sure in 8th edition all that matters is that the shooting model can see and is within range of the targeted unit at the moment the attack is declared . Even if only one model is visible to the attackers and that model is removed first they can still continue to deal wounds to the unit and...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And, to be honest, I'm kind of shocked that T'au players would consider sept exclusive character buffs as being a good thing. I can't think of a single reason why anyone, including fluff fanatics, would cheer for that. Hey, I'm a hammerhead pilot hovering next to Longstrike, the greatest hammerhead...

Re: Tau turn flowchart

Updated chart to include shield drone's new FAQ'd ability in the "Feel no Pain" quasi-step. I also added the roll you need for the FnP and Explodes/Crash and Burn rules. May add similar notes to other sections later but may not due to other sections being less uniform in how the various ab...

Re: Tau turn flowchart

At the start of movement phase you have "detach drones" I assume you mean the splitting of drones that are attached to non-vehicle units from their "force ogranisation slot" unit. From the wording of pathfinders, there is uncertainty if it is done before or after vanguard move. ...

This started off as an exercise to make sure I understood the turn order correctly and particularly when exactly abilities like Saviour Protocols and Sworn Protectors activated but it turned into a comprehensive flow chart covering almost all of the Tau special rules, including marking which rules a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But T'au or at least the Ethereals deny more or less the warp. Wouldn't it be strange if they started to field equipment for that? They do, but the fluff is also going to advance by 100 years or so. What if there are "secret" upgrades that XV8 pilots carry that they're not even aware of, ...

Re: Viable Proxies for Kroot Hounds and Vespid?

For the Vespids I'm not sure how affordable this might be for you but I've seen just put jetpacks on other Tau infantry before. E.g. just take a fire warrior or pathfinder and put one of these on them and maybe do a conversion on their guns to make them look a bit stronger than a normal carbine.

Re: Viable Proxies for Kroot Hounds and Vespid?

10 chaos warhounds cost the same as 4 kroot hounds, though they have rectangular bases rather than round so you'll need to get bases for them too. I'm using them for kroot hounds though I have a particular conversion in mind for them.

Quick question about Tau vehicles

Sorry if this is the wrong forum for it, I wasn't sure where to put this. I'm just curious about how many people it takes to crew the various Tau vehicles, especially the Hammerhead and Skyray. I would imagine at least three but I'm curious if there's a canon source for the crew size. This is for fl...
