Re: Fate of Konor Week 1 - 1500 pts

If I manage to get a game in I'd go with the Start Collecting theme. So a force of 3 Crisis, an Ethereal and 10 Firewarrior and like 8 or 10 Drones (don't remember how many exactly are in the box). For the Crisis I'd probably go with Flamer, for the Drones with Gun Drones or Shield Drones for the Cr...

Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

There is a good dual fusion gun from Paulson Games/Red Dog Minis that looks way better than the original kit. (Even the PG single fusion looks better) I have a few at home. Kromlech heat guns can pass as cool looking fusion as well, but I don't think there is a dual version. Let's face it...all of ...

Re: Breachers are still good

Am I correct in saying: ⋅  Devilfish moves 12" measured from the hull rather than the base (Hover Tank Special Rule) with minimum advance of 1" ⋅  Embarked units disembark 3" from the model (not doors anymore) ⋅  Breachers move 6" and need to be wit...

Re: What's the rationale behind differently-colored helmets, armor plates, etc?

I don't understand why you want to paint them according to outdated fluff, but that's up to you. I can only provide knowledge of the current fluff. :D

Re: Vehicle movement

One more question. What about the guns on vehicles? Last week I played a battle in which the nose of the Hammerhead saw enemy troops, while the Rail Gun didn't. We agreed that I can't shoot. Is it right? It can shoot. Any unit can shoot with any weapon as long as you can draw line of sight from the...

Re: Vehicle movement

Are you guys even reading? That's why they said "illegal" and "cheating". That should make it clear enough that it's not allowed. :roll:

Also as said, units with the supersonic rule are the exception. They can pivot without it counting towards the move distance.

Re: Let's talk about the Sun Shark

I think it's good but not tournament level good. It really needs BS3+ or non-heavy weapons (or both :P ). Same goes for the Razorshark, just that he is a lot worse lol I'm honestly thinking about detaching the Ion Drones asap and let them join a unit of Stealth Suits with Drone Controller. Or maybe ...

Re: What's the rationale behind differently-colored helmets, armor plates, etc?

Truth is its all aesthetics. So paint however you want. I like the differentiation of the different ranks by helmets and marking so i do it too. It's thematic and visually appealing painting-wise. Not really. Well not completely at least. Some people like to paint their army true to the fluff (many...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Panzer - "that's how it is designed" doesn't mean it is good. That said, I agree that in general 8th is better, faster, stronger. ;-) seriously in general it is a much smoother rule set and I love how it is being handled. Saying just mix your guys together though doesn't answer the issue ...

Re: Help a fellow player decide!

Okay first of all I give my usual first advice when it comes to T'au color schemes (I really should prepare a template for it :D ). The armor color isn't what defines a Sept color scheme. ..... And to the stripping: I've made really good experience with simple bio-ethanol. You don't even have to le...

Re: What's the rationale behind differently-colored helmets, armor plates, etc?

Calling all lore masters! I'm trying to paint my army with the classic Tau Sept color scheme. That's regular ochre armor with some parts colored white and burgundy. For the various ranks, here's what I can remember: Fire Warriors: Shas'la - No alternate colors Shas'ui - White helmet, middle plate o...

Drybrushing your black with a dark grey makes it a lot more dull as well.

Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

We've had a few of these threads, but Panzer is right. There are a few options: 1. One gun on each arm, and one gun up on top of each Jet Pack mount 2. One gun on each arm, and two guns paired/twin-linked on top of one Jet Pack mount 3. Two guns paired/twin-linked below each arm The fourth logical ...

Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

I think we had this thread already.

Anyway: it depends on how I feel like and where the magnets are but usually two on the Jet Pack hardpoints and two on the arms for a Quad Fusion Commander.

Re: 2k in drones. Gonna need some more drones...

If I were you, I'd wait until the Codex with actually building of all those Drones. Something tells me that they will still be good but not as brokenly good as they are now anymore. ^^

Re: EWO vs Necrons

Yeah the Deathmarks basically have an interceptor teleport...but since they are arriving from reserves themselves they are vulnerable to interceptor rules too. It's kind of hilarious to imagine how the space sniper of doom arrives to get an easy kill and then gets drowned in missiles by that very un...
