Re: Tau saviour protocol FAQ

Hi there, this is my first post and I just recently started with Warhammer 40,000 and the T'au. Since I am switching back and forth between an english and a german rule book, I would like to ask for clarification regarding the saviour protocols. Am I right in assuming that using the saviour protoco...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Also interesting that the rumour about AM/T'au next didn't turn out to be true unfortunately. Well actually... T'au could still be the first codex after AM in early October. They've just deviated from the 1-2-1-2-etc release, they could just be going into a 1-1-1 release every 3 weeks instead of ev...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

The Tigershark also is way more mobile after the initial drop of the Commander and can't get charged unless the unit has the FLY keyword. It has its advantages for sure but as always it's hard to compare with a deep striking HQ with 4 Melta, FLY keyword, decent survivability and so low point cost. ...

Re: Coldstar or 4 FB?

Both, really. Both are good and both have their place in an army. It just depends what you are lacking. You are lacking both, mobility and anti-tank with the units you listed but Longstrike + Railgun Hammerheads can do okay-ish for anti-tank duty I guess. Just make sure to magnetize your regular Com...

Re: Gun Drone's number of shots

No, they have 4 shots. Two Carbines with 2 shots each = 4 shots. It's as simple as it sounds. ;) And yes, Burst cannons aren't worth taking over Gun Drones on vehicles. I mentioned it before, but you do have to potentially factor in an additional Kill Point with drones on vehicles if you play that ...

Re: Gun Drone's number of shots

Nah, I think they just misjudged how to spread the point costs. They probably thought Drones will get sacrificed or Battlesuits most of the time anyway so they can't be expensive or people would rather take more Suits instead. And because the ability to give away wounds is so powerful they made Suit...

Re: Modeling Tau Females - a discussion

If your ignore the nasal slit, then the shape of the head would tell you whether the model was male or female. The first two heads are rectangular and therefore male, and since Shadowsun's face is oval shaped, that she is female. But when you think about judging sex by the shape of nasal slit that ...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Not a tank. Not a Codex unit. And definitely not within Hammerhead pricing range. BUT. The Tigershark AX-1-0 IS capable of removing a Landraider turn one. And my regular opponent now hates that plane because of it. It's the same cost as Longstrike plus two Hammerheads. It hits on 2+ just like Longs...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Now if you think that's too much just think about it. A Hammerhead costs twice as much as a Tri-Las Predator and has only a third of its firepower. There a no longer twin linked weapons so the turret has 2 shots... The predator with 4 las cost a little more then longstrike with rail gun and smart m...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

A nice way to buff the Railgun would be to give it d6 shots. Sure it wasn't a blast before but it's supposed to punch through tanks like paper so it should be able to cut through infantry like nothing as well. That's basically the same as a blast just not with a round template but a straight one if ...

Re: 2k Semi-Competitve List

I do face a lot of FLY, which is why I'm using the VT on the Keels. I also get annoyed by the -1 BS some FLY has. It's it easier to deal with. I do start a Cadre off in the droneport, so I can easily get some good alpha strike in. Also, if I need to I can absolutely stack 5 on a unit that must go d...

Re: Untouchable ghostkeels

Yep, if the enemy requires a 7+ to hit your model, they can't hit unless they have some positive to-hit modifier. Note that it counts for us as well and at times even worse since we only have BS4+ on most units. If you play a nightfighting mission where you get a negative to-hit modifier depending o...

Re: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

So, I've been looking over the current Tau options and reading through the forums to see people's feedback to get an idea for the best way to optimize firing output and uncover the synergy within the army. The number one thing that jumped out to me was the redundancy of re-rolling 1's. The Ethereal...
