Re: Weapon Profile Issue

Oh I do enjoy a good rules-interaction thread. I don't have BRB available right now so I can't comment on whether I agree with your interpretation, but my mouth waters a little bit at the thought of applying it to an Y'vahra. Or a Stormsurge with Blastcannon. A standard loadout Taunar has three weap...

Re: 8th edition

I hope we don't get the direct Str modifier to armor saves. I like that we can have relatively weak guns that penetrate armor and strong guns that don't. But the current AP system is way too all-or-nothing and the difference between AP2 and AP3 is immense. My pet band-aid that I've been meaning to t...

Re: 1k Intorducing tau to new players

I played a 1k game vs a new player recently. I knew he was bringing SM so I figured I'd bring something that could overcome his 3+ armor. Went with an Iontide and two teams of Breachers, and I accidentally completely stomped him with basically just those three units. Your opponent is playing Necrons...

Re: FE: RW + Taunar + crisis DS 1850

Possible tactics taunar and RW deployed and put on table taunar role is to pull fire to him, push forward and d-weapon blast amd even contest objectives RW stay back to activate hailfire turn 1 or 2 With a Taunar and a Riptide wing, you aren't going to need tactics. Just shoot and win. Sacrifice a ...

- finally the last Crisis gets behind the Baneblade again, fails to glance with his Fusion Blaster but takes the two last HP with his CIB

CIB confirmed better than Fusion

Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

The Y'vahra ion gun is brutal against knights and similar. Perhaps not as useful against the very heaviest vehicles, since S8 isn't that good against AV13+, but against AV12 it's amazing.

Re: Babies First Army: And you can too!

Well, managed to accidentally spill the agrax while opening it. :::( Luckily, I had the foresight to buy a ton of small eye droppers, and I used a small plastic divider from my case as a squeegee to help suck it back up. Ended up recovering about 3/4 of it. Protip: don't hastily open pots because y...

Re: 1850 - Competitive Tau

Maybe consider a drone controller for the commander? If he joins the broadside unit it would essentially give 6 BS5 missile pods. Also I'd be tempted to try find points for a shield generator for him, if he's tanking wounds for the broadside team any AP2 would go straight to FnP. Drone Controller d...

Re: Babies First Army: And you can too!

What's that scheme you got on the pathfinders? I've been considering making my pathfinders look sneakier and something like that would work wonderfully.
