Re: Multipurpose Strike/Breacher Teams

Get down of your horse. I literally answered on the question the OP asked. [...] I'm thinking of creating a small unit of Fire Warriors (maybe 6 strong) that are equipped with several weapons; holding either a rifle/blaster/carbine and having at least one other weapon slung up on their back. Fluff-w...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

We are talking much about battlesuit options (and a bit about vehicle options) but do you think there might be some love for extra tools for infantry? The thing with a free pistol for a shas'ui might be a test or a prototype for something. Pulse pistols at extra cost for every Firewarrior? What abou...

Re: Multipurpose Strike/Breacher Teams

You really want to play the quoting game? ^^ [...] so I think if I made 5-10 "variable" guys that could stand in for either type, I could vary my army lists in the future. I like the idea of Striker heavy gunlines, but I'm also liking the thought of devilfish/breacher rushes to get up clos...

Re: Multipurpose Strike/Breacher Teams

I thought we are already past being WYSIWYG-units by mixing Breacher and Striker parts like Rifles, Carbines, Blasters, Pistols and even Backpacks.
The backpack is no cosmetic, that's the part that gives Breachers a 5++ and Strikers only 6++ if a Guardian Drone is nearby.

Re: Multipurpose Strike/Breacher Teams

Especially if you follow the advice of inverting their colors (Veteran's scheme) there should be absolutely no confusion on their battlefield role. Heck, you might even use them as Pathfinders.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Would be great, especially for T'au, if GW started to make some cast frames only with weapons and put these into the already known boxes and make them also buyable seperately.

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Field Resupply: At the end of each of your moving phases roll a dice. On a 5+ you regain 1 Seeker Missile up to your initial limit. or Emergency resupply: Once per battle you may call in an emergency resupply. At the beginning of your movement phase roll a D6 for every Seeker Missile missing. On a 4...

Re: Fighting Blood Angels: Need Nelp with Tactics

My friend plays Blood Angels and currently he only uses two BA things: Brother Corbulo and Librarian Dreadnought with their Blood Powers. The first is able to heal or even revive dead models (and he loves to put him out of sight near Grav-Cannon Devastors) and gives nearby Marines +1 attack. The lat...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I find it utter nonsense that highly advanced battlesuits would not carry some kind of reliable targeting system. Why would they still have the accuracy of a person on foot? It's ridiculous! Imagine the following: Battlesuits do all have a BF of 2+ or 3+ Battlesuit Target Systems For every weapon a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'd like to see a general way to negate some psi powers manifested against T'au. I simply hate how my enemy is able to do 2-6 mortal wounds per psyker and I can't do anything against that. I don't think of actively denying them like psykers do but IIRC correctly they have to focus on the enemys' psi...

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

As the Pulse Bombs also ignore cover and don't need LOS they are lovely to use on cover-heavy tables especially on those nearly immobile units with heavy weapons in ruins like Scouts with camo-cloaks threatening your fireblades.

Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

What? No. All models in a unit have to be in cover if you want a cover-save. Also every non-infantry model in a unit has to be obscured by at least 50%. If you have a unit of 4 vehicles all the models have to be within cover and every model has to be obscured by at least 50% from the shooters point...

Re: An interesting synergy in new AM codex

The more codices arrive the more it makes me sad. So many pretty rules I'd wish T'au would get and then I realize we wont get it because someone else already has it. I also may declare it would be too strong. There's a difference between some Guards rerolling their misses or a bunch of firewarriors....

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

Funny thing, I thought the same. The merits of splitting different weapons across are, like you said, you lose all weapons equally. But think of support systems: If you put an ATS on a suit with missile pods and a flamer and do so for all 3 suits it might be wasted. If I play crisis suits I often mi...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

All these guesses and theories on the upcoming codices and I just have to imagine how they just rolled some D6 to set up a sequence.
