Re: Alternate Battle Suit Concept

So a few things... Firstly, that doesn't follow the tau aesthetic very well. I'm not sure if that's an issue for you, but if you're looking to have things match, those skinny legs don't fit so well. Secondly, it's way front-heavy, and with only 4 legs, I can't imagine the kind of weird forces that t...

Re: Feedback on possible changes for my 1500pt Battlesuit List?

Really? The Burst Cannon, VT, EWS and Earth Caste Pilot is one of the best setups for dealing with anything in the air. Well I can only speak of my experience in my local groups, who don't regularly field too many fliers and so my sense of army balance may not be generally applicable. Whenever I ha...

Re: Tournament: 1850 Tau. Need assistance/tips.

For 50 points, you're getting 24 points' worth of Drones, which leaves the Piranha as the cheapest, best value light skimmer in the game. Take them in squadrons of 5, drop the 10 Drones with a Commander and get one devastating anti-infantry unit, and one incredible anti-tank unit that's also superb...

Re: Tournament: 1850 Tau. Need assistance/tips.

with no ignores cover, you're going to have serious issues. What about dark angels, jinking eldar bikes, and war convocation? How on earth will you deal with any of that? The range of the IA and the FB (on the 'tides) don't match, and will therefor probably not get used very often, if at all. The HR...

Re: 7th edition crisis suit setups

Yeah, storm doesn't seem to work because we're already using it for other things.

Also, 3 syllables is a big much. I'd like to keep it down to two for simplicity's sake.

That being said, I do really like Corona.

Re: 7th edition crisis suit setups

True, but you can take 2 of each on any Crisis suit you'd like, which deserves a name. This (I'm pretty sure) is what Minigiant was referring to. Cheers! Precisely that I would like to be the first to suggest 'Fallout' for dual AFP's I do like fallout. What about "High-Charge" for the ion...

Re: 1850 - Retaliation Cadre & Optimised Stealth Cadre

I litteraly made this exact (well a very similar) list this morning. Could you provide some insight? Not to be that guy, but the list looks a little weak to me, if it's supposed to be competitive. Firstly, I hate Heavy Rail Rifles. Secondly, you need a LOT more EWO if you hope to take down space ma...

Re: 7th edition crisis suit setups

Why not? I hear this a lot, especially with Shadow Captain Shrike in the marines codex. The rule states that an IC without infiltrate cannot join a unit with infiltrate. The FAQ add "and vice versa" preventing the loophole that previously existed in the RAW that allowed you to join the un...

Re: Tidewall Rampart discussion

The idea is that the Tidewall itself is taking up the model's movement phase by moving. The benefit is that the model then counts as having not move for the purpose of shooting, and other fun perks for being there. This is to prevent players from putting units on a Tidewall, moving 6'' with the wal...

Re: Tidewall Rampart discussion

models still count as moving except in the shooting phase. What makes you say that? I read the following: Models carried with it are treated as being stationary for the purposes of firing weapons (this includes a Tidewall gunrig's railgun), but cannot move themselves in the same phase It's the &quo...

Re: Tidewall Rampart discussion

Just posted on reddit about this too. Can anyone give me a reason that a stormsurge doesn't stay locked in the ground when it moves? That could be a very good interaction. Don't think the model will fit on the platform though so it's moot point, think the largest you can get on one is a broadside. ...

Re: Tau vs Necrons, or "How We All Died Horribly"

Yeah strange list. It seems really short on points... Also - necrons are insane. They're amazingly good with a decurian, and probably our worst matchup. Against necrons, I've lost horribly once, and tied twice, after obsessing about their codex. To tie, this is what I did: ... - Run 2 Ion-Heads for ...

Re: XV86 Coldstar Battlesuit Crisis Commander++

Hmmm... Depending on our drone choices, Does anyone think it might be useful to run 2 or three of them and join each other / is that even possible (don't have my BWB on me, and it's never been a thought before)

Run a unit of 3 coldstars?
