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?

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:

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).

Re: Painting gold

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. ^^

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

It's even meh against GEQ. A Commander kills an average of ~1.1 Firewarrior/Skitarii Ranger/whatever with ATS and ~0.8 without. Yawn. Not worth building anything around. An additional weapon would do a LOT more. Same thing with Crisis Suits. A unit of 3 Crisis Suits would kill an average of ~1.04 Fi...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

Not always as the ATS makes you better at CC. I am finding being in CC very useful and go for ATS over more weapons. Barely. T'au are bad in CC whether they take ATS or not. Even a Commander is only okay-ish despite WS3+. Equipping T'au for CC is a waste of points and potential. The thing we can do...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

Even against 3+ armor ATS is usually not worth it compared to an additional weapon.

Re: Optimal drone squad size ?

I'd say 4-6 is the optimal size. Only exception would be a Crisis unit with more than 3 Crisis suits ... take all the Drones possible there. ^^

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

ATS is worth it as long as you cannot take an additional weapon. So, Ghostkeels, Riptides, SS, and the like. Suits you always want more weapon systems over ATS.

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

ATS is usually not worth it over an additional weapon unfortunately. I like to take it on Stealth Suits with Burst Cannons and on bigger suits with, multi-shot low AP weapons though but only because other support systems are rarely better. Also keep in mind that there are effects that ignore AP-1 on...
