Re: Phe'nyx Task Force

Dayum that's a brutal looking suit! Love it! Now I want a Commander in XV88 option so we have an XV88 with WS3+ and more attacks and possibly two support system slots for a Shield Gen and ATS! :D
Great write up as well!

Re: Spin the Bottle

Good point, cheers. I’ve got a 6x4 table that splits in half so there will be 2games happening simultaneously on the 2 halves. I’ll post a short bat rep with the outcome :D 3x2 will be VERY small. Keep in mind your pathfinders will want to be at max range BUT if you have rail rifles, you may want t...

Re: Dark strider and breachers

It's okay. Not a winning combo and a bit expensive for what it does but not bad either. Definitely a nice thing to take in casual games.
If you take him you take him for the -1T not for the fighting retreat. Your Breacher aren't very likely to survive long enough anyway.

No, oppen topped works like any other transport with the named exceptions to embarked units shooting.

Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

3 Flamer is basically always better than 2+ATS unless you're facing lots of 2+ armor...and then there are better weapons than Flamer anyway I'd say. ^^ The only reasons to play 2+ATS are: - not enough bitz available - not liking the look of 3 weapons on a Crisis Suit - being a few points short and c...

Re: Tau Supremacy

In what world does the ta'unar gets the battlesuit keyword but the stormsurge doesn't? In a world where the Ta'unar is piloted like an actual battle suit and the Stormsurge like a giant tank on legs I'd say. Blame the designer for modeling it with an open cockpit so the rules writer could see it an...

Re: Spin the Bottle

I honestly don't rate Marker Drones very highly. The only case where I'd use Marker Drones would be to prevent all my Markerlight sources get wiped first turn by an enemy by letting the Drones drop in with Crisis and a Drone Controller. But that shouldn't be a problem at 500p. Markerlights have a 36...

Re: Spin the Bottle

Okay first things first....don't expect to have an answer to everything in such low point games. You can try to build an allrounder list but there will be situations where you simply can't do much about it. Imo in low point games it's better to build towards ones own strength instead of trying to be...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

To be precise, the Designer's Commentary confirms it. ;)

However I'll expect that flowchart to be a temporary solution and to be gone once it goes into the second round of Codex releases in a few years or GW wouldn't have any way to change any Datasheet properly thanks to the Indexes.

Re: What does RAW mean by "hull"?

Yeah they finally answered it in the Designer's Commentary.
Unfortunately it doesn't change anything for LoS things but it's something I guess. ^^

I might be getting my english words all jumbled up after work... Is this flowchart trying to tell me I will still be able to use CIBs on crisis, even if they get removed in the codex?

Re: Stormsurge

I do something get the impression my local group meta is not the same as yours and others. Not sure if this is normal but I find it extremely rare to come across vehicles and flyers are even more rare. As for Fortifications I never seen anyone else use them. I use all 3 myself but I am the odd one ...

Re: 1000 pt list

3 Pathfinder units á 5 is fine. They die way too fast and 6 of his 15 Pathinder don't have Markerlights anyway so it's more like 9 Pathfinder + 6 special weapons. Counterfire defense system isn't that great on Stealth Suits. I'd rather take Advanced Targeting System there. Darkstrider is okay with B...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Overall I don't think they are that well to compare in durability if I think about it. One is more of a tank and the other is more of pretty durable infantry. True but if you compare it to a ghostkeel or Riptide I might have to have a little cry :sad: Ghostkeel is still okay-ish but Riptide...yeah ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Comparable in what sense, the carnifexes have double the shots at higher Str, better BS, higher toughness, more wounds. Ok can't FLY or infiltrate but why are your stealth suits in combat? If you compare them shooting at MEQ the stealth suits do 1.98 wounds and the Carnifex does 6.89 In terms of en...

5 points for a Assault 6 S6 weapon???? What the hell... I'd wait for the FAQ before buying 10 haha. 7p actually. Just checked. I'd honestly say a single Carnifex and 3 Stealth Suits are very comparable with an obvious edge for the Carnifex. Carnifex with - 24 18" S6 AP0 D1 weapons - at BS3+ (E...

Re: New tyranids smite spam

Those Carnifex have a lot of long range shooting, and your flamer crisis suits have no good targets. Within our index your list isn't bad. But I recently played the new 'nid codex and the amount of large bodies they can bring at low points is disturbing. The 'keel only has 3-5 fussion shots for an ...
