Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The real big deal in the book for Tau will be the points changes. If they are roughly in line with what happened with the Eldar Codex it will make a significant difference. Nailed it. The biggest changes I can’t wait to see are those involving the costs of units. I doubt we’ll see much go up signif...

Re: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

Alright, I finished my Ion Rifle Pathfinders and have been using them for multiple games and a local tournament. I’m totally sold that they are a great option, for most of the reasons previously mentioned. There is one other thing that I noticed that I liked. Due to the unique Rapid Fire/Overcharge ...

This would be interesting option as it wouldn’t require any repackaging, missiles are missiles.

Headless Horsemen Tournament Report

This weekend I had a great time at the Headless Horseman RTT in upstate New York. The event was put on by the same club that does the Goldensprue Cup GT, and they did a great job. They use one of the best Mission Packets I have ever used, and have plenty of terrain all painted to a theme for each ta...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Personally, I’m just happy to know that we are getting a rework in December. My expectations are that Chapter Approved will be more of a points/rules tweaking and jumbo FAQ, than a rules supplement with lots of new content. If GW was to introduce some new rules, I would hope that Stratagems for the ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Am I the only one here who doesn’t want the Codex this year? Here’s my rationale: if the Codex drops right before or right after the adjustments in Chapter Approved, then both will likely be the same, or not very different. If there is a longer period between the two, I think we have a better chance...

Re: Revisiting the 2xCIB+1xATS Build on XV8s

Nice analysis! I also think this is a good strategy from a hobby perspective. As most of us know, the CIB is pricy in real money. I have a few kicking around from the old and new Commander kit, and can't bring myself to buy enough to field a full squad of 9. Even the third party versions are no deal...

Re: Do you paint in batches, or one-by-one?

As someone who is stretched for time and has never really enjoyed the painting side (I have no natural artistic talent), I batch paint almost everything. I am lucky to have several top tier painters and commission painters in my club, and they have given me awesome advice, tips, and training to stre...

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

I feel offensively it struggles due to the inconsistency of the fusion collider and 4+ bs, but with markerlight support it can do some serious damage. How many Markerlights do you typically pack in a 2k list? I have been fielding about 20, but feel like I need to either grab more (probably Drones),...

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

I have two more on my shelf that I think I'll finish and deck out with Fusion. I really want to work the non-Commander List angle a bit more, and now I'm encouraged to try. I'm also pretty optimistic that the Ghostkeel feels about right points-wise and is less likely to be adjusted in Chapter Approv...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

Victory went to the T'au. In the after analysis, I think I'll switch up my Painting order a bit. For my normal list I was going to use Hammerheads for Anti-Tank, mostly as motivation to get them painted. I didn't like the utility I got from the single Quad Fusion Commander and Crisis team, and I don...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

Personally I don't use lists that aren't Take-All-Comers, but in the rare instance of fighting Eldar the Plasma Rifle is a little better. I don't normally either, which is why I posted here for a Narrative setting where both forces are definitely prepared to face our specific opponent. XV8s need to...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

I feel like you are going to be VERY underwhelmed by your crisis and ghostkeels for their points. The Crisis, sure. They're their to do a very specific job, and if there's no Heavy or Light Infantry in my opponents list, they'll be useless. The Ghostkeels are a great tactical asset. Their value is ...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

We can make that 3x10 (not 6x5) to try and avoid First Blood and it'll give us a greater chance of getting first turn; also, we can get plenty of Command Points with the other units. I doubt First Blood will be a in the mission, but I agree it's better for fewer drops and that it will be easier to ...
