Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

HQ - XV84 Commander w/ 3x Missile Pods, Networked Markerlight (155) The XV84 only has 2 slots, so max 2 pods. But otherwise, great tweaks on that list! :) I thought it had four slots, one of which was pre-filled by the Networked Markerlight. Or is it two weapon slots, one system slot, and the Marke...

just for my curiosity, has IRL (pretty green island you mean?) different size of millimeters? :)

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Does he run Typhus and a psyker to buff the zombies to t5? Does he run multiple 20 man squads of them? Does he use the stratagem to make the plague marines immune to shooting for a turn? Did he use any stratagems? What does he equip the plague marines with? They can have plasma guns, plague launche...

Re: Old XV88 Kit

Would definitely recommend using the bigger sizes for both Stealth Suits and Crisis/Broadside. Less arguing with super picky opponents, models fall over less often and more space to do some basing.

Re: Character Targeting rules

Well he is clearly wrong. There are three ways to target a character that is not the closest: - using a sniper unit - the character has 10 or more wounds (not remaining wounds, the stat on the Datasheet counts) - shooting at him outside of the shooting phase (aka Overwatch etc.) Either he learns to ...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Yeah I feared that was the case. The old broadside is the one with the old Crisis body + additional metal weapon bitz. Not a model I'd use by my own choice considering how awesome the actual Broadside model looks to be honest. :sad: Seems ok weapon wise I think. Need a larger base though. Do like t...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Meh, I won't be taking an Ethereal just to save the last Drone. I'd rather get another Drone unit for those points. ;)

Re: Old XV88 Kit

The old model also doesn't have the right base size for Crisis suits and is generally a bit smaller than the current ones though. :D

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

If you only take them in units of 4 you really don't need an Ethereal nearby lol
Unless of course roll an incredible amount of 6s for battleshock tests that is. :D

Re: Old XV88 Kit

You are right with both.
The plastic bit indeed is one of the Crisis feet and the metal bit you are talking about indeed is just flash you have to cut away.

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

The new sprues aren't just denser. They slightly altered the bitz as well, making them a bit more detailed, bigger, better poseable etc. (most noticeable with the Crisis box).

Yeah it definitely is. Don't forget the Reikland Fleshshade and maybe even a silver/metallic highlight to make it really pop. ;)

Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

I don't get this. How can you hit on 5+ in Overwatch? Because that's what the Counterfire Defense System says. It's not a modifier or anything, it simply overwrites how Overwatch works for the model equipped with CDS. Should be fairly obvious by just reading the Index entry for CDS. Even more confu...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Almost nothing is completely immune to moral in 8th. There are only really two ways to handle things: either make almost everything immune to it (like in 7th which was terrible) because every faction is written like they are the most fearless badasses of the universe unless you are an Imperial Guard...

Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

Nah. Not for the Markerlight at least. I'd much rather have the Fusion Blaster hit in Overwatch than getting a single Markerlight on the charging unit. ^^
