Re: Sa'Cea Sept Panels

If you want, I can give you a breakdown if which parts to paint in the Sept color to represent the respective rank ('la, 'ui, 'vre, 'o).

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

A Crisis Suit can be equipped with 3 weapons each and only 8 because he included a Drone Controller (takes up one of the 3 hardpoints on the suit) to buff the Gun Drones he included in the unit. ;)

Re: Sa'Cea Sept Panels

Okay a quick T'au painting guide: The orange is what is actually the Sa'Cea color, like the red is the Vior'la color. The Sept color is used to show to which Sept a Firecaste warrior belongs to and his rank (different combinations of antenna, helm and shoulder guard painted in the Sept color. Can be...

Re: Can you attach a spare Hammerhead turret to a devilfish??

They are the same models.
The difference is that the Devilfish comes with a nose turret and without the top turret where you attach the weapon. So you would have to get the actual turret bit from somewhere else still.

Re: Is Commander Farsight worth taking?

I think it really depends on what you will be fighting against, if you are going to come up against a lot of armies with support characters rather than super killy combat monsters then sure he can be worth taking. Your standard commander may be better with multiple guns, however if you are already ...

Re: Grav-Drones vs Charge Rerolls?

Well re-rolls are before modifier. I still think the wording is not 100% clear for re-roll effects that say "failed to-hit" or "failed charge" etc. since you can only really determine if something failed after applying modifier ... buuuut most of the community on any forum seems ...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

I think without changing yout list too much I'd simply remove the Seeker Missiles on the Devilfish and the single Marker Drone in the CIB Crisis unit.

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

Shield Drones did so incredibly well for my HRR Broadside and for my Flamer Crisis I'm seriously thinking about taking another independent unit of Shield Drones just to catch up with my Ghostkeel (since even though I'm underwhelmed by the Ghostkeel, it's still one of my favorite models so I keep usi...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

That may be true, however you can easily get the re-roll 1s with a single markerlight and the multi-tracker forces you to focus all the Commanders shooting at a single target to have any effect. Plus 4 Fusion Blaster have a higher damage potential. It's always better to nuke something important than...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

It would fix a lot of things. The fact that Crisis Suits and bigger Suits are too expensive as well as the Gun Drone spam. Then we just need something to fix HQ spam for every army and we're a big step closer to where we want to be. Anyway, that's not exactly this threads topic here. Nothing of that...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I still think it's stupid that the cost for Saviour Protocol is included in the Battlesuits. It's not their ability. It's the Drones ability. The Drones should be more expensive so the Suits can be properly priced even if you don't take any Drones with them.

Re: Multiple targeting and overcharge

From Core rules 3.3: Similarly, if a unit contains more than one model, they can shoot at the same, or different targets as you choose. In either case, declare how you will split the shooting unit’s shots before any dice are rolled, and resolve all the shots against one target before moving on to t...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Keyword: BATTLESUIT is a very points premium keyword to have. They probably thought that 'Saviour Protocols' was going to be a big thing to watch out for when they "Balanced" T'au, but it just pushed out suits from being effective Except that Stealth Suits aren't that expensive and that S...

Re: Multiple targeting and overcharge

Yeah you have to declare all your shooting targets for a unit at once before you roll anything.

I know a unit can split its shooting however I'm not completely sure if a single model can split its shooting though, would have to check on that when I'm back home.

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

2 weapon slots + 1 Support slot for Crisis sounds fine but I'd really like to keep the 4 'anything' slots for Commander. For one because having only three weapons on a Crisis chassis looks pretty ugly and then because four weapons on a Commander looks pretty badass and the decision to not take somet...

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

A few things to note about the Ghostkeel from my point of view: -A Target Lock is only necessary for the Ion Raker, as the Fusion Collider is an Assault Weapon, not a Heavy Weapon. Uhm, no. The Fusion Collider is Heavy 1d3. The Fusion Blaster is Assault. Would've been nice otherwise because it woul...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Restricting non-walker vehicles but not walker and monster is ridiculous unless there is a narrative reason for it lol

But well it's a low point tournament. Those are never exactly balanced are meant to be taken not too seriously in the first place anyway.
