Re: 'Ninja Tau' and the New Codex

I don't think I'd ever use the Stealth Suit Stratagem unless i really really really need to get to that one objective lol
The rest sounds okay-ish.

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Here's my take on viable XV8 builds: Competitive Builds: 2x CIB + 1x ATS (All purpose anti-infantry and anti-vehicle) 2x Fusion Blaster + 1x Flamer (Anti-vehicle alpha strike) 3x Flamer (Anti-infantry alpha strike) Situational Builds: 3x CIB (Slightly inefficient for its cost) 2x CIB + 1x Flamer (G...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

a return of the Optimized Stealth Cadres' special rule in any form. "XV25s' weapons near a Ghostkeel gain an additional -1AP and attackers have to distract 1 from their hit-roll if farer than 12" away" yadda yadda yadda. I'd love that but that's too special for a Sept tactic. Maybe a...

Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

Yup Panzer is 100% correct which I think every agrees is daft as nails but models only get a cover save if both 100% in a terrain feature and are either infantry or every model is 50% obscured. So if the arse end of your tank is 1/2" outside that forest you don't get a save even if 50% obscure...

Re: Off topic section? Suggestion

I'm honored to be included in the list of people you're interested about but honestly, I wouldn't use the offtopic section at all. Never did on forums, never will do. Frankly it would mostly result in spam for me because I usually just check all the new posts on the forum instead of checking for act...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Likewise three Fusion Blaster at BS4+ won't do much against anything you'd want to shoot them at. I'd rather damage a big target properly and do less against chaff where I can just endure and, if I have to, fall back than the other way around.

Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

That's right. That's how it works and it's terrible. One of the weakest rulings of 8th edition and I hope they're going to improve it with the Chapter approved book.

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I was thinking about that as well, but I don't think it's a very strong loadout.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Well they said ten codexes before the end of the year, and IIRC there have only been eight released so far. So there's going to be at most two more. So there's a chance! I'm betting that we will get ours right before christmas. T'au is a popular army and releasing the codex before Christmas would b...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

I honestly feel like we have to split the way GW handles customer now and 8th edition stuff. They could act the same while keeping 7th or having any other kind of rules. Those two things aren't really connected with eachother except that both are caused by the same person behind the scenes.

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Gun drones: XV8 only, use with or without a DC. I suggest pairing them with a XV25 team with a DC to get the maximum output from you XV8 Shield Drones: XV88 and Commanders. These guys make decent screens for your COs when they drop in. They need to be killed directly before anyone can target your Q...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Well right now you are just a "Shas" if you'd look under your name. :P Casual and Serious: Useful Distinction? It is my hope to discuss the merits of this serious/casual distinction, identifying which loadouts are casual and which are serious, and then also discussing the intended or assum...

Re: Comparing Mechanized Unit Builds

Pff I just gonna play empty Devilfishes. Last time the Burst Cannon + two Gun Drones killed 5 Deathwatch in cover. God was my opponent pissed. :D But yeah I agree with your conclusion. Gun Drones still have sick value even if you don't plan to ever use their Saviour Protocol during the game. And yea...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Of course we have a chance. But I wouldn't hold my breath.

Oh and just ignore any rumours about the Codex releases we got so far. They all were just predictions in hope to be right so they could say "Told ya!".

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

@Kakapo Fair enough. If something changes as much as GW and 40k did the past ~2 years (it really was a rather long process) it's just bound to happen that some people can't find their place in the new situation. It's always a tradeoff for a company and the community itself to change things up to su...
