Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

The Heavy Railgun Array was so-so in 7th, but in 8th it is terrible. The cluster rockets are a joke. Your crippling yourself if you take that gun now. If I ever this century were to get a game with my Ta'unar I wanted to take that and now it is just asking to lose.

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

I just started cackling wildly when I saw that flamer that thing is using. I'd definitely use this over a regular riptide at this point. I'm feeling the same way. I was so nervous for the Y'Vahra rules since I own two of them, and my 3 Riptides may not leave the shelf in 8th. Obviously depending on...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

It's so sad to see the Tau like this and the wider internet and community more or less fine with us being push overs instead of a fair and balanced fight. Please I hope GW realises the Tau have some huge problems at the moment. It doesn't take hundreds of tests to figure that out when seeing a Tau w...

Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

That proves my point even more. Everyone has unoptimized 8th lists. Even our opponents have to deal with changes and we are still getting destroyed with almost no chance of success.

Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

It can be hard to filter out substance from all that snark, tbh. :roll: Pros: - 8-point ablative wounds - More durable (albeit more expensive) Devilfish -> a big buff to infantry in general and specifically Breacher Teams. - High average movement, lots of Assault weapons, numerous ways to mitigate ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

More and more reports of Tau being tabled in two turns even by IG. The rare win here and there due to luck. General consensus is everything we have is just too expensive. The loss of JSJ is killer. Even as efficient as the Commander is it's simply not enough to win. Well I'm cancelling my 8th preord...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Okay I will clarify that, if you don't use your support slot for target locks Riptides and Ghostkeels need to either not move or need marker support otherwise they will be at BS 5+. Crisis suits that don't use missile pods will generally be in charging range after they fire, and +1 T and W will not...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Food for thought: Darkstrider is marked as out of stock on the UK Games Workshop store... Maybe he's getting a new mould/release! Fingers crossed it's a box set with darkstrider, a new vanguard infantry unit that can wreck in CC but then fall back and shoot. Could even give us units that have flame...
