Re: Rumor Engine Picture Analysis: It's Tau?

The weirdo in me wants to say it's the onegar, but the skeptic in me isn't convinced that it is even Tau, no matter how many clicks Heachi posted.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Railguns unchanged, huh? I was really hoping one sept would buff them, ala salamanders. Other than that, the only real news I'm waiting on is how many septs we get, what they are, and whether or not Tau get to treat their relics uniquely, as they have in the past. Tau were unique in being able to th...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Is there an exploitable issue with just directing the entire hit to the drone unit, after the enemy rolls BS, to just use its toughness and armor/invuln save? Then if the drone dies, the remaining hits go back to the original target or another drone unit? Are they afraid that is somehow more complic...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Though the actual bodyguards rule is you take the 2+ after failing saves, against ap- weapons this would make saviour Protocol hilariously strong Forgot that- that would make Savior Protocols immensely strong! Though it also would mean you'd have to possibly kill off several drones to save a single...

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

Haechi says that one of the septs is Bork'an, which isn't in Chapter Approved nor the 8th rulebook, so it's safe to say that we're off the edge of the "maps", here. Bork'an is one of the classic First Sphere expansion septs, so I think it should have been expected to be in the Codex. Sure...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm not going to rate it because that would be too subjective. All I can tell is that I have a massive tournament coming in two months and I'm dropping my Custodes and Thousand Sons list to play T'au instead. Also buy Riptides and a couple Hammerheads (with Ion Cannons) if you don't have them. Whic...

Re: Ideas for Sept Traits

I thought it might be interesting if a Sept fired Overwatch after the enemy made their charge move, with the risk of not being able to fire overwatch at all if the charge roll fails. "Hold your fire until you see the whites of their eyes," kinda thing. As I get charged from outside of 9&qu...

Re: Early warning override use against Reserve models.

If the shooting happens before the drones and commander separate, how to you handle the difference in Toughness between drones and the Commander? 8e no longer allows mixed toughness units, so I don't think its covered in the rules. There are a few situations I can think of, like Ammo Runts and thun...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

In what way do Forgeworld and GW not communicate? They're in the same building so that seems a bit difficult to believe. I don't see why they'd have to wait for the T'au codex as they'll already have them. It's a common conceit that Games Workshop and Forge World, despite being in the same building...

Re: Sense of Stone and Shield Drones

In most cases, a FNP roll doesn't stack. I'm pretty sure Leviathan nids don't have their HFA stack with the Catalyst, and Orks don't get the benefit of both dok tools and cyborg bodies.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

new person question sorry but I'm just picking up on the comment about a Thick Codex if FSE are included. Were they that different or just had more rules? I've only joined in for 8th so I'm not familiar with the past differences. To keep it on topic, do people believe that FSE would make a single c...

This list is illegal, isn't it?

I was looking at the Tau lists over on Blood of Kittens' 8th Edition Top Army List Compendium , and I was looking at this list when something weird caught my eye. All of the dude's stealth teams have 2 homing beacons each, though I think you can only take 1 per team. And after doublechecking the mat...
