Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I know people think I'm negative, the only small hope I have is the points changes. I expect the worst though. If the points changes are also crap then we know our dex is purposely being built badly and there is no hope. Edit So far Faeit has been dead on with these rules with GW previewing a few an...

Hahaha. People had hope. :P Tau Warlord Traits 1. re-roll failed to hit rolls if they have if they have not moved this turn 2. the Warlord can advance and shoot as if it had not moved Relic- 1 time per game, you may re-roll a single hit roll, wound roll, or damage roll for the bearer or a unit withi...

Re: Weekly Discussion #2: Which Sept's lore interests you the most, and why?

Kel'shan a mix of high technology and xenos bigotry. They are kind of like the IG who have seen a lot of *BAD WORD DELETED!* happen and are a little more gritty and down to earth take on Tau. They don't believe entirely in even their own fellow GG approved xenos because they have seen all too often ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Why are we excited for this? Chapter Approved likely won't have any points cost changes for us or anything major so who cares? Chapter Approved is billed as having inclusions for all armies without a codex, bringing them updates that allow them to participate in the new mechanics of 8th edition tha...

Re: Stormsurge

Ya I question if a stormsurge will ever win its points back in a competitive game, but I do find it to be an excellent jack-of-all-trades and clean-up operations unit. While I don't take EWO on it, I find that whatever most armies deepstrike in the stormsurge can just unleash havoc on the following...

Re: New Tigershark Fighter-Bomber up for pre-order

For what it's worth, I've always had great experience with Forgeworld models. I've made more than a few purchases with them in recent history but have only ever encountered one or two serious mould defects (and even then they were either virtually unnoticeable to the untrained eye or fairly simple ...

Re: Trouble with Mathhammer: Mean, Median, and Skewed Distributions

FFG solved their 40k rpg line's problem by adding in minimum damage on some weapons or even weapon firing modes. Actually they seemed to have solved much trouble with 40k rules in general that GW still is catching up to. This made it so that other weapons were actually useful again and made weapon c...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

God no, not yet another item subject to a dice roll. You prefer the Riptide to automatically wound itself instead of only 1/3Rd of the time? Yes. The Riptide was too strong in 7th because all of its rules made it unique and survivable along with MC's in general. In 8th a Riptide is the exact same a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So it seems I am right more and more we will be one of the last. Everything I've said about Tau in 8th is coming true. At this point my last and most dire prediction is that the Tau 8th codex will be garbage in terms of rules. I am feeling confident in my claim, but it is no less depressing. I hate ...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

I dunno about everyone else, but this model looks insanely destructive :D Lets compare it to something of a similar cost right now.

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

I absolutely love these Forgeworld flyers. They're everything Tau titan-hunters should be- not giant walkers, but strike aircraft that can swoop in, blast stuff, and fly out. Beautiful. But, I just can't justify the price tag (in points) since they're probably not all that competitive. The Barracud...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ah yes the minor hand slap battle. Come our update we're going to start kicking some serious ass again. I wonder if this mean's we need to show the IoM how to kick chaos ass this edition? Or will we be fighting a mixed array of targets in stories now?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I have a bad feeling we won't even see Xenos next year other than token codex drops. Until I see a major and big xenos release with my own eyes I get the feeling it's just going to be 30k MK2 primarch land for a long long looooong time. We know Fires of Cyraxus has been effectively shelved because o...

Re: Start Collecting disappears in the US

I can confirm that the start collecting and fire blade are discontinued, verbal confirmation from a retailer that they won't be available again. However that same retailer was told that new products will be avaliable in coming months, he told me from experience that usually means updated models and...

Re: Start Collecting disappears in the US

Lots of DW stuff sold out and is clearly not returning. I wouldn't count on it. If you really want a model marked no longer available online get it now. The DW bikes can't be ordered in Canada anymore and are a huge savings on the combined bikes + upgrade sprue scheme they got going on now. I grabbe...
