Re: Infiltrationn cadre/ farsight bomb

I also want to add shadowsun to the bomb for stealth and shrouded but my friend says i can't have farsight and shadowsun in the same Cad, is that correct? :fear: There used to be a rule stating that Farsight couldn't be taken in lists with Shadowsun or Aun'va, but it was removed in the 7th edition ...

Re: New to tau, tips and comments appreciated!

It looks like you're using google drive to store your images, but have them set to "guests must be logged in to view".

I'd suggest moving them to Imgur, it can be easier to share an image from there than google drive.

Re: Ranged Support Cadre + 1st turn tank shocks

Servo-skulls are also a hard counter to this, and the 3 servo skulls detachment seems to show up often enough in anticipation of both deep strikes and other faction scout/infiltrator shenanigans. You might be able to pull this off with the Mirage Apoc Formation, but that requires your opponent to be...

Re: GW Doing FAQs Apparently

Has anyone asked if Target Locks or Split Fire can be used as part of Coordinated Firepower? Someone needs to if it hasn't been done yet.

Re: GW Doing FAQs Apparently

I've submitted the FSE Riptide Signature systems omission as my question, I saw a Coordinated Firepower shared buffs question go past while out at work.

There are enough replies on that facebook post to birth a chaos god of unanswered questions.

Re: Returning player, not sure what books to buy

Adding onto SomeTauGuy's info: Kauyon is the only book you can find most of the Tidewall Rampart in, as it is absent from the Tau Codex. Two Tidewall related dataslates are missing from Kauyon: Tidewall Counterstrike Cadre (noted in SomeTauGuy's thread) and Tidewall Rampart. (available from box set ...

Re: Farsight Enclaves Wave

Farsight Armies still can't take Hunter contingents or Hunter Contingent formations without being an Allied detachment. Can't have a Retaliation Cadre with Fusion Blades and Ork Hunter, for example. I haven't picked up the new Farsight book because I've been swamped with work: Why are you making th...

Re: ITC 2016 Season Q1 Update Poll Posted: Ends on Feb 25th.

Results are posted: Holophoton Countermeasures are used per model , no multiple-model fortifications (i.e. gunfort), Piranha Firestream Wing does not revive destroyed models when they leave and re-enter the field. Could someone post a link to the full results? Cheers! Sure: https://www.frontlinegam...

Re: Hypothetical Tau Jetbike Tactical Role

Following some of Bitterman's thinking, it would perhaps be fitting to see Jetbikes used as mortar type artillery platforms for Kauyon strategies. Firesight Marksmen on bikes with Drone AI systems and Pulse Sub-munition Cannons built in that could only be fired reliably when the marksmen dismount an...

Re: FSE codex update changes

I don't have my copy of mont'ka at hand since I'm not hope, but clearly my brain must've skipped this part completely! Does this mean that we can take a hunter contingent with core and auxiliary formations from the farsight enclaves? I mean for example retaliation core and riptide wing auxiliary? W...

Re: FSE codex update changes

Well, the hunter contingent is still significantly more powerful than the dawn blade contingent. That's a reason to stay "loyalist" :D Er, can't the Hunter Contingent be taken as a Farsight Enclave detachment? Well, not that I know. And if battlescribe allows you to do so it's a bug if I'...

Re: ITC 2016 Season Q1 Update Poll Posted: Ends on Feb 25th.

So... what? Incoming Tau nerfs? Hahah. With the exception of the Tidewall question (which I asked them back when our codex hit), all the Tau related questions appear to be "Should we undo the nerfs we put in for LVO"? The exception to this is that the Piranha Firestream wing deploy-and-le...

Re: Drone Net VX1-0

For perspective, a completely unrealistic and all-round bad idea: 4 squads of 8 drones fire at 8 or more different targets and wound them all, causing a total of 32 pinning checks rather than 4. This is completely unrealistic BUT, if you do have lots of targets available, it is best to start out sh...

Re: ITC FAQ update: multiple tau nerfs

It doesn't say that destroyed piranha's come back. It just says that "repairs are made". So RAW, one would assume that any hull points lost or weapon destroyed results would be fixed, NOT that you get all your piranha's back. That part is NOT clear at all. The reason that's important to a...

Re: ITC FAQ update: multiple tau nerfs

Shasocastris has already pointed out most of what I'd have to say on the matter, so I'll only emphasize this: If you're going to play this game at any sort of competitive level, you have to sit down and figure out what is best for the game overall. If you play casual games and don't want to use thos...

Re: ITC FAQ update: multiple tau nerfs

If you think it's bad now, wait until they update the Tau section for 7th edition! ;)

Humor aside, Nic's right. The Void Shield ruling is procedurally correct per Stronghold Assault.

Was there even a vote for these? At a glance, I didn't see any news items about them on the FLG page.
