Re: Tau objective markers

Note that they were purely aesthetic. I haven't seen the page in over a week, so bear with me. More than a few were drones bits. One was a sort of short tower with gubbins and a drone dome top. One was a floating drone with unique/kitbashed hanging equipment. One I believe was a crashed drone. And o...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Again, yes. I believe that the intent is clear, when held against the old rule and FAQs. I believe that this will be FAQed.

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Based on the picture your interpretation 'appears' correct. However, it is a tiny snipet of the page it is on. It is entirely possibly that it is being taking out of context. It maybe in a section labeled "shooting phase rules" ect. So we will have to wait and see what the full page says....

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

I'm expecting a fast FAQ on this one, but, here's the new character rule. http://i.4cdn.org/tg/1512114809065.jpg There's one intended difference, and differences I believe are unintended. First up, the intended change is simply clarification, as seen in recent FAQs and commentary: Characters must be...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think that it is pretty likely that these two warlord traits are going to be locked to Farsight and Shadowsun.

Re: Frontline Gaming - Chapter Approved - Review Discussion

Someone pointed out that Kauyon is reroll all misses, and while reroll ones may seem just as useful on commanders and BS2+ models, it was also recently suggested to me that Kauyon works during Overwatch, and again during the fight phase. Still situational, as getting charged isn't ideal for Tau, but...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Especially considering DE are a candidate for major release (also tau are rumored to get a "big, not quite tau" release when our time comes) This is the third time I've heard "big, not quite tau." What the heck does that even mean? Atia, one of the hobby's more reliable rumormon...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

The logic is that any point changes done would be point changes done for Index: T'au and specifically how Index: T'au functions. When Codex: T'au comes out, the entire way that T'au functions would change because of new stratagems, relics, warlord traits, and sept rules. So the point costs would ha...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Exemplar of kauyon on the other hand is worth 2 points (as much as multi tracker) because on the commanders and fireblades it only allows re-rolls of 1s, for the ethereals it does absolutely nothing, for Lingstrike it's a little better (it allows for re-rolls of more than 1, when he is damaged) and...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

The updated rumour Just in case anyone is still holding on to that shadow of doubt, even about the wording, here's this screengrab I assembled before the vid was taken down. I worked extra hard to doublecheck the wording of the Markerlight strat, and posted it above, although the screengrab was tak...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Our only HQs with heavy weapons are Longstrike, Darkstrider, and the Fireblade I think. While the heavy weapon perk is interesting, I feel like it will be more valuable to gain the bonus on advancing assault weapons. Warlord selection isn't limited to HQs, just characters. Consider (and then dismis...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Looks like the vid is down. Guy has a discord in the description, and is willing to answer some questions. Said discord implies video will be back up in the morning, and was removed for because of a technical error, not a takedown notice. I still have the vid open and will be awake for at least anot...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

A youtube review https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DsOLvt4w2Y 22:40 is basic faction rules. 32:40 is Tau. Strat is summerized because his head is blocking it. Warlord Trait 1: Exemplar of Kauyon You can re-roll failed hit rolls as long as you have not moved. If they moved,they lose trait until start ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Not sure what happened to my last post, but here's this: http://i.4cdn.org/tg/1511568671097.png Not sure what's the source, but it's only FW models, most points do not change from the last FAQ and other points values seem rounded to 100s, it's probably something like a prototype print to see if eve...

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 ...
