Re: Crisis Bodyguard and Sworn Protector

And the +1A really isn't worth it. A 3 Bodyguards will still only inflict 2 wounds on average against T3-4 and that's before saves. So with some luck you do 1 damage...yay. Crisis are already expensive as they are, no need to increase their cost even more for some super minor effect if you don't pla...

Re: Relasine's T'au

The gold is a REALLY interesting choice...and since you didn't overdo it, it actually looks pretty nice!
I'm no thinking where to apply that in my color scheme as well. :D

Re: Tau 8th ed. mathammer tables

One of the reasons I really like the BC XV9 is because it actually works in tandem with Gun Drones since they can take a single support system and still keep all their weapons. 130 points for a BC XV9 with a Drone Controller and four Gun Drones is pretty sweet, me-thinks. I was planning on running ...

Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

They work really well against units that have T5 and a 4+ save. I alpha striked a maxed out squad of Tyranid Warriors with a squad of 3x flamer suits. I find I'm often wanting to target T5 units with my flamers, so at this point I'm just used to them wounding on 5s. I also love their independence f...

Re: An interesting application of Longstrike's hull shape and terrain.

They were play testers. They sat with GW and played their game. What more proof do you need? You're being obtuse. Yeah yeah they were playtesters, everything they do is right, they can't be wrong yaddayaddayadda. Too bad that even GW employees (like Rob etc. on Twitch) said themselves that they wen...

Re: Equiping Ghostkeel

Haha, I noticed that when I was putting mine together but I REALLY didn't feel like I'd be swapping the main weapon (HRC), let alone the Tri-Axis Ions, so I just fixed them on. I can't see myself ever wanting to use the Fusion Eradicator, mind you, it does look absolutely amazing. As for Ghostkeel,...

Re: Markerlight shooting and timing

Initial BS4+ is perfectly fine though imo. T'au are fluff-wise physically worse than your average human, inlcuding sight. That's why they don't do melee and why they invented all the tech to help them. It's just that our Markerlight table sucks. I can only repeat myself but if we had a +1 to-hit as ...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

T'au vs SM (UM) - 1850p, mixed style https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Flp00pd4EY A lot of mistakes in that one though. Like wtf is up with the Commander having a Cyclic Ion Raker with 6 shots S8 (no he didn't roll a d6 to determine the shots even)? Or with allocating wounds to Drones after making t...

Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

Less niche than our best unit? Not sure I agree there. Just because something is niche doesn't mean it's bad lol Not saying it's bad, saying it's not niche. "Niche" means having a small range of applications or is used by a small group of people. The 4x Fusion Blaster Commander is actuall...

Re: Tidewall and Embarked Models

Thats not quite right. Even if someone uses AP-3 weapons we can still throw for reflects because in 8th edition, modifiers apply after your roll. So we throw our save -> on a 6 it is reflected -> apply modifiers (6-3=3) -> check that modified save with the Sv value in the Dataslate (3 is not 4+) ->...
