Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

A reminder that GW is previewing some elements of Chapter Approved on Friday, starting at 4PM GMT (11AM my time) over their twitch stream, so we might have a better chance of gaining clarity/new info at that time.

I will try to be available for that, but my schedule hasn't solidified, yet.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

There is an unspecified change to how character targetting works. I think this has to do with the line-of-sight cheese, where players might run behind a wall so that the closest enemy unit is no longer visible, allowing the character to be the "closest visible" enemy unit. and some kinda ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think the relic is really weird fluff-wise. What kind of device would improve shooting/damage potential (once) AND at the same time (indefinitely) improve the tactical capabilities of the army (e.i. get extra CP) because of something the enemy does? :-? Edit: Not complaining, I'll gladly take bot...

Apparently, this confirms some leaks from bloodofkittens. Those leaks contain zero Tau information, as well.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

From the latest post on Warhammer Community : "Come back tomorrow when we’ll be looking at one of the most exciting features in the book – expanded rules for 11 factions currently without a codex, including stratagems, warlord traits and relics…" Yuuuuuss Even if it's 1 or 2 of each even ...

Re: Are there any examples of Tau Cybernetics?

They use implants and stuff. It's a key feature of at least two of Farsight's Eight, IIRC.
Mostly just chip-in-the-brain stuff.

Re: Weekly Discussion #2: Which Sept's lore interests you the most, and why?

Kel'shan has all the state-of-the-art technology and Forge World suits, as well as O'Ralai. N'Dros is a mystery, and people always like mysteries. Something about the idea of underhanded T'au appeals to me. And the Enclaves. Everyone loves a rebel. But the Septs whose lore most interests me are Vas'...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Why are we excited for this? Chapter Approved likely won't have any points cost changes for us or anything major so who cares? Chapter Approved is billed as having inclusions for all armies without a codex, bringing them updates that allow them to participate in the new mechanics of 8th edition tha...

Re: Weekly Discussion #1: What happens to Gue'vesa once they join the Tau?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I swear there used to be rules floating around from GW about including Gue'vesa in your army. Imperial Armour 3 introduced three human units for use in 40k: Mining Work Gangs , Gue'vesa Auxiliary, and a Governor. The governor was little more than a statline, intended to...

Re: Seraphon for Mercs?

Right off the bat, know that Age of Sigmar's rules don't translate well into 40k 8th, so you won't be able to play the Serephon with official GW Seraphon datasheets. If you simply set the Lizardmen down on the table, and say that they "count-as" Kroot Carnivores, you shouldn't have any rea...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Eldar lost some options, apparently because they didn't have bits in the box. Tyranids gained some options, apparently because they did have the bits. I see Grey Knights pointed to as a foil for this direction. Does anyone know how the other codices fared in this regard, or which unreleased codices ...

Re: Can EWO stop drop pods???

Drop pod has one ability, the act of it literally coming in from reserves. The act of the contents disembarking is not a deep strike maneuver and EWO doesn't trigger on disembarks in general. Disembarking is a basic mechanic, true. However, in this case, be aware that the Drop Pod's ability automat...

Re: Can EWO stop drop pods???

The better thing is that EWO, as far as I see, can also shoot to units that disembarks transports. Let's say a Tactical squad disembarks from a Rhino. The Tactical squad is being SET-UPed, so a unit with EWO can shoot at them. That's actually really great, especially for heavy infantry armies like ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The upcoming Tyranid Codex will be very interesting here. They have three main Hive Fleets in the fluff and several smaller ones that get rarely mentioned. We'll see how much work GW is willing to put into developing those smaller ones to give them rules or if GW sticks to the 3 and maybe 1-2 other...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

After looking around a bit, I think the 5 sept estimate may be correct. T'au, Vior'la, and Farsight Enclaves are listed in the Index. Sa'cea is given some treatment in the 8th edition rulebook, and is likely. Ke'lshan and Dal'yth are presented in the IAIX. I presume Ke'lshan will remain the domain a...
