Re: Making a Brigade

Yeah that's the most useable combination for the most CP in 2k games I believe.

Re: Breachers are still good

No. Just no. Guess which unit is more likely to get beaten up in melee over the turns. Tac Marines or Breacher? Yes that's right, Breacher. Guess which unit has more valuable shooting that shouldn't ever end up in melee if possible. Tac Marines or Breacher? Yes that's right, Breacher. Darkstrider ca...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Uh? There will be sept-wide buffs. All armies will have the same thing Marines got. How do we know? I don't remember the community site saying how they were going to handle Tau, Necron, and Tyranid Key words. Because GW said multiple times that everyone will get that treatment and frankly it wouldn...

Re: Pathfinder Drones - Look better on paper?

In a couple of games, one against SM and another against Necrons, I took two 5 man pathfinder teams, each with a pulse accelerator drone, and then embeded each of them within 2 Strike Teams at opposite ends of the table to pincer my opponent. The drones simply gave up kill points as each was target...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Shield Drones are good but only if you really need that much protection. In a 500p allcomers list I'd stick with Gun Drones for obvious reasons.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And in any case, two lousy bubble buffs is no biggy. As long as it stays at two (which is pretty much GW's way of saying "we've no clue where to go from here with this idea"). Well I think we have a pretty clear picture to where GW is heading. Whether you like it or not is a whole differe...

Re: Start Collecting Box: Purchase now or later?

Even if there's a future new SC box with incredible value (nothing even hints at something like that so far, mind you!), if you just need the Crisis from the current SC box it's already worth to buy it. If you need the Firewarrior and the Crisis then it should be a nobrainer even. It's not like a ne...

Re: Drones, unit coherency and Tidewall

Question to build off this one: If you deepstrike a suit team at 9'', can you deploy their accompanying drones inside of that 9''? First of all you deepstrike suits MORE than 9" away from enemy units. Yes your Drones will follow your Crisis Suits but those as well would have to be MORE than 9&...

Re: Screening units discussion

Nah not the entire table, just big pieces of terrain. It's really not that abstract to be honest. We have one or two of such "forests" in my group as well and we used to have such terrain in our flgs too back when I still went there to play. Whatever dude; it is utterly specific to your g...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Czar, I really can't put it in more simple terms. You can't possibly be excited for more of everything and I'll prove it to you. You're suggesting one sept gets two buffs. I'm suggesting ALL septs get the same two buffs. If anything, I'm in favour of "more of everything" and, in contrast,...

Re: Screening units discussion

Well everybody plays on different boards. Some play on "tournament" boards with lots of open terrain and few big LoS blocker and some play on super crowded boards with basically 90% of the space being occupied by forests/ruins...something I aim to achieve in my group as well but we are cur...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

also keep in mind the patrol detachment: The only requirements is 1 HQ and 1 Troop Or just the Spearhead Detachment if you are only interested in Longstrike&friends. 1 HQ + 3-6 Heavy Support = perfect Hammerhead addition for any army if you don't mind not being mono-sept (for the fluffbunnies a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Also keep in mind that GW used to say (not sure if they still do so in the rulebook/codices), that the named characters are just examples of all the exceptional warriors that exist in the galaxy and if you'd want to use one of them in your custom chapter/whatever you can just take him and say it's &...

Re: How to XV88 get to the field?

Just because the rules don't represent how something gets transported it doesn't mean it's like that in fluff.
Broadsides get transported by Manta as well afaik.

Re: Forgeworld Hammerhead variant turrets

If I'd get Remoras I'd like to use them themselves though. :D
I also kinda try to avoid Forgeworld models as much as possible since I really dislike whole Resin models and don't want my wallet to tell them it's okay to keep producing stuff in Resin. :P
