Even more reasons to build my Crisis with Flamer and Shield Drone bodyguards. :D

Re: Beam Swords on suits

I would argue that you could make a plasma sword like a giant plasma cutter. Sure it might trail behind the swing a bit, but if it's coming out fast enough and with enough pressure that could be elevated to a degree. I think we would need to consult a physicist to be sure if a plasma sword can or c...

Re: Sniper Teams?

Yeah that looks good. Points-wise I'd say 8p-10p base for the Sharpshooter himself (Pathfinder are 5p and those have infiltrate over scout, a stealth field and better BS). For the special Rail Rifle....lets see, the normal one costs 22p and this one has 6" more range and can target characters w...

Re: Beam Swords on suits

Considering. Even humans in 40k have managed to create plasma projecting weapons, I'd say it's pretty reasonable that they've managed to find a way to manipulate and contain it rather well. So a short range continuous discharge is feasible. Best guess; some type of shell that contains the plasma un...

You can always just put him on a flying pin and put that one in the base with whatever scenery you want. ^^

Re: Can't decide on a color scheme. Please Help!

B&C has a Firewarrior painter template. Right there: http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/fwp.php ;) Majority are pretty aware of the B&C painter which is a nice one no doubt. I was just really looking for that exact one and I am afraid that the older template is completely gone... I myself c...

Beautiful BA army. Just be happy you had to face Deathcompany and not Vanguard Veterans or Sanguinary Guard. BA pretty much did a 180° there compared to 7th edition. :D

Re: Fate of Konor Week 1 - 1500 pts

Unfortunately I won't be able to play a game this weekend it seems. The one I planned to play against has to work the whole weekend due others being sick and stuff and I don't really feel like playing against random people these days.

Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

I can see your second point, but then again Crisis itself aren't exactly very beautiful designed imo. However they are now an iconic unit of T'au that won't change so that's that. Your first point I can't agree with. I think they have all the details they need. More details isn't always good (though...

Only if it's in forests or ruins. There is no general 50% obscured = covered rule anymore. Oh wow. We played totally wrong. There is no normal cover anymore :/ I don't like it. Well there is...kinda...it works differently than in 7th and I don't really like it either. Checkout page 181 (the one abo...

You definitely have to be careful with something like that. Most will damage the plastic.

Re: Let's talk about the Sun Shark

I suggest bringing it on the board at an angle you can adjust and hit another on round 2. If you are stuck in a position you can't bomb anything, just fly off the board and come in next turn in a better position rather than try to salvage your poor position and get a markerlight and a few missiles ...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

The Changeling causes all Tzeentch Daemon units less than 9in away to force you to subtract 1 from your to-hit rolls. And bird perverts get +1 to their invulnerable saves on top of that just for being themselves. It was rough. Yikes. Yeah, Tau (also Imperial Guard) really suffer when confronted wit...

Old Warhammer fantasy worked like that depending on the unit type (swarms, regular sized, big and huge models).

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: New 8th FAQ

As with everything, you have to put up enough pressure so the opponent has to divide his shooting between all your threats.
