Re: Vespids. The unsung heroes.

I've been wanting to play a deepstrike blob with a Y'varha and Vespid escort.

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...

Makes sense. Thanks for clearing it up, for me.

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...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I haven't tried commander spam, yet. I understand that it is unfluffy, but Is it closer to the, "Just barely allows Tau to be competitive," sort of broken, or the, "Although coming from a codex with plenty of balance issues, Commander spam is top of the meta," sort of broken? Bec...

I want to see more drones attached to things, and more flexibility in what drones get attached where.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

T'au also owe their Ion technology to a client race, the demiurge, I believe. At least one user on a related facebook thread suggests that all of T'au's firepower either derives from that initial Ion tech, or has been stolen and reverse engineered from Imperial tech. I even saw suggestion that the a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Images of another Warhammer 40,000 facebook comment indicate that GW feels the T'au statlines are good, and right where they ought to be, based on the fluff. The rest of the comment seems somewhat...explosive...so I'll avoid posting it directly, for now. But those who are expecting or anticipating s...

Silver Sept Markings?

For my dudes, I've chosen metallic silver as the sept color. I'm sure I'm not original, but the color is sticking. I just wanted to double check before I go spinning homebrew fluff, that a silver-marking sept doesn't already exist in canon. From what I can tell, Tau'n is maybe up there. I know that ...

Re: Custom tau females and "rambo" like guy

The extended Geth-heads would take a little getting used to, but it does look like they are somewhat optional. I don't know what sensor suites we have that'd fit into that house shaped receptacle for easy conversion, if you're talking about making fixed-head suits, ala stealthstuit/Hazards, but I do...

Re: Custom tau females and "rambo" like guy

https://wargameexclusive.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/GG-FUSION-BATTLE-SUIT-02.jpg WE's got suits out. Interesting components for conversion, I think, but I'm not a fan of the suit-hands holding guns in their hands, especially when they are already arm mounted. That's a bit too Gundam for me.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

No one is certain how GW will handle the timeskip for T'au. Way I see it, GW can pick from Time shenanigans, stasus shenanigans, rename shenanigans, and ignoring the contradictions. Ethereals maybe live for centuries, maybe not. The fluff isn't particularly clear, I don't believe. Firecaste T'au sho...
