Re: Saviour Protocols and Psychic attacks

"‘Saviour Protocols: If a <Sept> Drones unit is within 3" of a friendly <Sept> Infantry or <Sept> Battlesuit unit when an enemy attack successfully wounds it, you can allocate that wound to the Drones unit instead of the target. If you do, that Drones unit suffers a mortal wound instead of...

Re: Kauyon and flyers.

PS: Just checked. Master of war works for tau empire units, and FSE units are still tau empire. But if you declare it with commander farsight, it doesn't work for tau empire units, so you should be good. Master of War only affects units of the same sept. If you declare it with Shadowsun or another ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Absolutely the mindset we need to have. Getting pessimistic about things that (a) have not happened yet, and (b) may not happen at all, is just looking for an excuse to complain. The same can be said about being optimistic. If you are pessimistic, you can be surprised. If you are optimistic, you ca...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

On the topic of peoples' moods improving with the arrival of the codex, I think that those with expectations, namely specific expectations (created by rumours) will be the most disappointed. To add essence to this, I want to bring up cinema and going to a movie with expectations. If you go and watch...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Stormsurges: It costs way more than a Punisher, but offers way more firepower too. 4D6+16 S5 shots is massive, and with all those shots firing at BS3+ with AP-1, the Stormsurge can output 1-2 Punishers worth of anti-infantry firepower, and that's just with its secondary weapons. This is what makes ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

As I keep saying, players can still spam Commanders, it just comes with a Troop or -1CP tax now. 5 FWs are 40pts, and for 3pts you can include a Markerlight for support. This, to me, is extremely fair, and before everyone starts complaining about how other armies get to spam HQs and we don't, please...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

My entire argument stands similarly with Broadsides. Near 200pts for a BS4+ platform with only 2 S8 shots is hardly fair when Spess Mererns get a better platform with: more wounds, more toughness, better BS, two extra BETTER shots, and again, smoke launchers. Yeah, Broadsides are definitely terribl...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

Give all rail weapons explosive rounds (or something) that is lower str but higher amount of possible dmg or something. Also points decrease. This would give them some flexibility and make them more viable to justify their inclusion. Even so I think hrr should be str 9 as it’s so weak for its cost....

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

I really hope they don't 'fix' our issues with stratagems. I don't like stratagems in general (I think they lead to too many 'Gotcha!' moments because I can't memorise 10+ stratagems for each codex). I'd rather have the guns be good than have to spend some obscure resource (albeit with a points dro...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

Since my primary opponent is AdMech, I'm extremely sour about our Rail weapons. Our Railguns are one shot, S10, AP-4 and only D6 damage with a chance for D3 mortal wounds. Thats far too random for my liking. AdMech Neutron Lasers though, are D3 shots, S10, AP-4, D6 damage but damage rolls of 1 and 2...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

We have to roll like a 2+ for it now? Well, that was to be expected i guess. Could make Shield Generators possibly viable on XV8s, to stop the shots that slip through. Though the actual bodyguards rule is you take the 2+ after failing saves, against ap- weapons this would make saviour Protocol hila...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm not going to rate it because that would be too subjective. All I can tell is that I have a massive tournament coming in two months and I'm dropping my Custodes and Thousand Sons list to play T'au instead. Also buy Riptides and a couple Hammerheads (with Ion Cannons) if you don't have them. I kn...

Its been a while since I've shared an update, so I figure I should probably let everyone know what I've been up to. Gladly, I'm still working on projects, despite being very busy outside of my Tau.

Re: Something I missed on Shield drones

If you're referring to if the shield drone itself was shot at, yes the drone could take its armor save first followed by the FNP if it fails. This. I played wrong the whole time :-( Been there.... I realized that 2 months ago after 30+ games played... and I was never using Shield drones cause I tho...
