Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

Sa'cea also fields more Firewarriors than other septs (and use fewer suits), have an even for T'au extreme bonding to Ethereals, favor stealth operations and long range broadside support. The codex could build them up as infantry heavy force or give a stratagem for combining broadsides with firewarr...

Wait before the rage: It is only said the units stats wont change. That's fine and it was obvious.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I know you can build up reasons why someone still lives 100 years later. But in my eyes progressing in a story means you also have to leave something behind. I favor making the prototype suits usable by any Shas'el upwards and engram the geniuses of kauyon and mont'ka so you can upgrade any Commande...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And that's simply stupid. A military leader needs experience on the battlefield but also far from it. I imagine Shadowsun being defrosted and briefed how technology changed the last few decades. Enemies and T'au themselves progressed. How should a commander adapt to new situations he only knows via ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Saw the same. As the manager was talking to another customer I sat down where he paints and there was a GW Letter in english how to restock the shelves with picture and so on. Also a list of items which have to be displayed. Dated Jan 13th. Sadly half the letter was obscured by other papers and pain...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Went to my FLGS today and before I left I said to the new manager:"Tell me something." He stood there, thought a moment: "You play T'au?" "Yeah." "[Nicht mehr lang]" "Yeah, it is always [Nicht mehr lang]. I want to use my broadsides again and I am sick of...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Balancing aside and it might sound super fan-boyish but T'au should be superior in any field except melee and soldier count. The firecaste is literally a race of high skilled hunters trained in synergetic tactics and long range warfare. Commanders are tactical geniuses and the presence of an Etherea...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And weapons should not be compared without considering on what platform they are used. Remember on which platforms we have burst cannons: Commander, Stealth Suit, Crisis (Bodyguard), Ghostkeel, Recon Drone, Piranha, Devilfish, Razorshark, Skyray, Hammerhead and Stormsurge. Hard enough to balance the...

Re: Why so much hate on the ghostkeel?

I bought my Ghostkeel shortly before 8th was released; I play him on a regular base because of my stubborness: I bought it, I play it!
Ghostkeels are really annoying to shoot at, especially if you can place the drones out of sight.

Re: About deployment and objectives.

It might not be 100% accurate according to the rules but we first put the scenery on the table, then place markers, then we determine deployment zones and mission goals etc. via drawing cards (=random). And then there's the roll off to see who may choose his zone and deploy first. It's like slicing ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think GW is afraid of giving T'au weaponry too much power: This would turn T'au into a low model count more elite army (I'd actually like) but also they try to design T'au as some semi-horde army.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I always understood the T'au-Warp relationship as some kind of stealthy: While a psyker would close his eys he would see any other creature in front of his "third eye" like bright glowing auras. T'au instead would be really hard to "see" especially if surrounded by other psychic ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The reason I think it's fluffy is because Mont'ka and Kayoun are DOCTRINES of war and not buffs. They are a set of principles by which the commander (i.e. the player) executes a battle: -Mont'ka: hit vulnerable and key targets fast and hard to destabilize an opponent -Kayoun: pull the enemy into a ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Funny, I was toying around too with such "drastic" ideas: Variant a: Raise the slot number on suits but weapons use 2 slots. Also raised costs for support systems but heavily lowered prices on the chassis. 6 slots for crisis? Variant b: Link the ballistic skill with the number of weapons i...
