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...

Re: Haechi's Rumor on Faeit 212

Is that what wanged the ATT server yesterday? They'll throw your username up there without much provocation, even if, in your actual post you say that you got the info from another forum or website. A few years ago, I used to be really lucky at spotting leaks on facebook and 4chan before the rest of...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Whenever I'm feeling blue about my blueskins, I just remember that most Sororitas models are older than the Tau faction itself, and we've had some kits made in plastic, and then updated in plastic again while many other models are still only available in metal.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Doubt that. If Necron and T’au aren’t the next codex after demon. Then, what is the logical reason for that they did’t get point update in chapter approved? The first presumption here is that there is a logical correlation between our lack of treatment in one publication and the release schedule fo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Here is the problem with speculation: Some of these options people are floating around sound very nice, and are almost certainly going to be neater than some of the options we will get. In other words, a lot of people are building themselves up for disappointment. I'm not saying our codex will be ba...

Re: Longstrike background, cannon & fluff

There's really not much. There are also some shenanigans with what little fluff actually exists.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Just a heads up, to temper expectations: The Dark Angels' Codex is out in the wild, and there are numerous verified reports of typos and copy-paste fluff issues. In one gonna-be-famous example, the Inner Circle rule, a fairly ubiquitous and common Dark Angels faction rule, is literally incomplete. I...

The everchanging game: FAQs and Updates

I don't expect this to get a lot of discussion, but I'm shocked to see it get no mention at all. I figure these are worth noting, especially for our tourney and matched play Shas. https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/12/15/the-future-of-faqs-and-chapter-approved-dec-15gw-homepage-post-2/ First u...

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...

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...

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...
