Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

Q: Do units that are not Infantry (Vehicles, Monsters, etc.) gain the benefit of cover from woods, ruins etc. if they are at least 50% obscured by that piece of terrain but are not actually on or within it? A: No. Unless they are Infantry, such a unit must meet the two following conditions to gain ...

Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

To answer your first question, yes, any model that is at least 50% obscured by a terrain piece, then they do get a cover bonus of +1 to their armour save. Note: I can't find anywhere in the rulebook where it says that models obscured by other models recieve a cover bonus. To answer your other questi...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

2xFB+SG is good, as is 2xFB+Flamer. 2xMP is decent but I feel like Broadsides outperform them, and Broadsides aren't even good. Though, about the close-range build, I wouldn't combine CIBs and Plasma Rifles. CIBs are skirmishing guns that you keep at 18" range, while Plasma Rifles must be fire...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

Perhaps there is merit for an all-comers list? Is this different in a power level conversation? Given that Power Level doesn't charge you for weapons at all, only models, I say the conversation would be vastly different, as a single weapon Crisis costs as much as a Crisis carrying 3 of the most exp...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

I kinda miss T'au from 5th edition. That was probably my favourite edition so far, but I do like that I can run my army however I want, so I go for a 5th edition kind of feel, with some new model love of course. I still don't like the whole "detachments" thing, and would love to see the re...

I'm happy not receiving critique on my army list as that wasn't my intention, otherwise I would have posted it in the Cadre Building boards :)

Re: Tau Commander 3x CIB + Multitracker

We're all forgetting the third source of re-roll 1s in our army. I use an Ethereal for many reasons, but one of them is its Elements abilities, one of which is re-roll 1s, making the idea of a Multi-tracker on a model with 2+ BS even more useless. I'd probably put a Multi-tracker on something that I...

Re: A'kish Vior'la Cadre

I've finished base coating the few weapons that I have yet to paint for my Crisis suits and my Riptide, and I decided to do it by brush this time, and because of this, I will probably do all my base coating by brush in the future. I instantly noticed a few advantages to base coating by brush: it app...

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

I call the discussion stupid because it partly comes from the problematic interaction of their quick FAQ and their Core rules while ignoring that problem. It doesn't get us anywhere? Okay, we don't have to get anywhere anymore. We've been there multiple times already but repeating the same things o...

Re: Vertical charging

I did that with my Riptide in one game. Couldn't be charged because the floor was smaller than its base, therefore no models could join him up there :)

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

This is where the rules confuse me. If I were to roll a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 to hit using a 6-man team of Fire Warriors with +1 to hit and Master of War: Kauyon, then most players I've played against would say that the 3 is a fail. Here's why they'd say it: it would normally be a failed roll, and i...

Re: Rerolls and modifiers

I think people are getting a little too into this discussion. If you have BS4+, +1 to hit, and re-rolls, that means you need to re-roll your 3s too , because modifiers are not applied until re-rolling is complete. If you have BS4+, -1 to hit, and re-rolls, that means you can't re-roll 4s, because m...

Any chance that Tau codex will be released this year? Just hope... :P Doubtful. Early next year more likely, though. I think I want to agree with R.D. in that we won't see a codex this year, but gladly we will see some small changes to our index in the chapter approved due to release in December(so...
