Re: My first 1000 points list

As I tell most new players, I think you don't have enough markerlight spread. You've got a squad of six BS5 markerlights, so you can mark a single target very efficiently. But it rarely happens that you want to shoot at just one unit per turn, so you want the ability to split your markerlights betwe...

Re: 8th edition

You don't find it the least bit silly that a weapon which just has enough penetration power to bypass a Fire Warrior's combat armor, also degrades the armor of a Riptide to be no more effective than that of a Pathfinder?

Re: 8th edition

I hope we don't get a static subtraction on armor save rolls as the new AP system. Because honestly, a weapon that used to be AP6 or AP5 shouldn't have *any* effect on 2+ armor. Whereas, as I mentioned earlier, an AP3 weapon should be able to do something against 2+ armor, but ideally not reduce it ...

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.
