Re: Tidewall Rampart discussion

The statement "must remain in the same configuration" can be interpreted in a few ways. Does that mean the physical construction of the fortifications or the total layout. My interpretation is that you can not separate the components that you have connected together. So the shield wall cou...

Re: How to defeat Eldar Rush tactics?

I would use missile spam sides and cyclic ion suits. S7 ap 4. Many many shots. Pop go the transports & force or negate saves on infantry. Drone net with markers only for support. Riptide for heavy firepower. Cold star commander might be a nice selection. If you use FSE the you can use dawn blade...

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

Need slots on commander for upgrades.

I'm thinking about using fireball over infiltration on occasions. I'll test that soon I think.

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

Play tested the list today at the club. Deployment & terrain defeated me. Infiltration cadre lost 3 units in t1. Retaliation deployed perfectly! Smashed the dark angel back line and key units in turn 1. But I was facing a fireraptor & black knight command squad. 3+ rerollable jink is devasta...

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

Indeed. I scoured the BRB and found nothing. Checked the 6th ed BRB and found that limitation in the reserves section.

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

I thought BRB stats the at least 1/2 your army must start on table.

Those were the same issues I was looking at. With infiltration cadre there is more valuable targets on the board, not 1 stealth team, but each one has added risk of providing T1 DS of 6 high power units.

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

Checked out rapid insertion force, looks interesting but it is not really a viable option in my 1500 point list. To use the retaliation care I need at least 6 units on the board at the start of my t1. RIF may be a viable option with Ranged support cadre. Using ranged support as a heavy suppression f...

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

Rapid insertion force? I'm not familiar with that one, how does it function, & what is it made of?

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

Interesting idea with the ranged support care. I'll check it out. One of the club players uses OSC all the time so I don't want to use that all the time. Might use it from time to time. Looks yummy on paper, my khorne army munched through them rather quickly though. Axe of khorne on berserker champi...

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

I have edited post to contain my modified list, I have taken EWO off the fusion suits as recommended, I hadn't considered rage when making the list, it makes sense. After reading the Missile/CIB/plasma discussion I have decided that the CIB is a better fit for my Battle concept so replaced the Missi...

Re: 1500 Formation Army, please assist if possible.

I apologise I forgot to add my tactics on to the post. the general idea of the army is for the pathfinders to scout up and find cover, the stealth suits will infiltrate into positions of opportunity, and the piranha will at as bait. A foolish opponent will go for the quick first blood point not real...

Re: 2000 pts Cadre - first try

Dawn blade contingent can take the hunter cadre for the core instead of retaliation cadre if you didn't want to find/loose suits.

Broad side HYMP Conversions are easily done from the HRR body with the HYMP pods attached at the end, make an awesome looking HYMP Rifle like weapon pose.

Hi ATT, I've been lurking for a few months now and have learned a lot from reading through the many great discussions & stories in the various forums. I've recently resumed my effort to start a Tau army. I love the canon and imagery. So far I've purchased the Firebase Support Cadre and some old ...
