Re: My T'au gue'vesa army ideas

For kill team and SWA games, we fluffed up a setting for some gues. World was vassalized by Water Caste, and while much of the world is happier under Tau rule, there are still dissidents, and kind of a Nazi-occupied France underground resistance of Imperials firebombing Earth Caste factories or what...

Re: Petition for Tau Orca

The Orca appears in the TOC for Imperial Armour Index: Xenos. It will have 8th edition rules.

Re: The run to 8th edition

GW is using "Chapter Approved" to update the 8th edition rules/balance once per year. One has been announced for Christmas, and the Honor of Konor campaign will be used for largescale playtesting for the update. Do my eyes deceive me, or do Aun'Va's Honor Guard, who lack ranged weapons, re...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Just a heads up, I've seen some people already trying to exploit rules. Latest one was suggesting that if you replace your <Sept> and your <Chapter> tags with the same name, they technically share a faction keyword and can be allied, which, at best, is unsportsmanlike. Perhaps most depressing about ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Well genestealer cults are up and I wonder if people will stil think Tau are OP. But We'll have to wait for the point values. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/05/27/warhammer-40000-faction-focus-genestealer-cults/ One of my favourite aspects of the Genestealer Cults, though, is their abilit...

Re: The run to 8th edition

As noted, some leaks are in full effect. Only psykers can Deny The Witch, for what it's worth. If nothing else, the Talisman of Arthas Molach is getting a bit of a rewrite. Chances are that it'll have a 24'' range, now, though.

D is officially gone, but in a way many weapons are now D, since they can deal multiple damage per hit.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Am I the only one here that don't like to be part of Xenos 2 book and who will miss our Codex? Could be worse. You could be SOB, and your army with a full roster of unit choices (except for fliers, now, I guess), who is a large force with multiple orders in the fluff and that often operates indepen...

Re: The run to 8th edition

So, Drones. If Sniper Drones do not mix in with anyone then I really doubt if any drones will. It does look like they will run independently yet be able to jump in the way of nasty wounds hitting nearby Battlesuits or Infantry. Drones hanging just behind the front lines acting as wound tanks and ov...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Efficiency or not, you don't build two sphere expansion fleets in 5 years. Oh please, does anyone think the expansion is really spherical at this point? No one fights for empty space, the fight is for usable resources. The galaxy looks kinda like a flat disk. Not "one planet flat" or &quo...
