Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Gun drones: XV8 only, use with or without a DC. I suggest pairing them with a XV25 team with a DC to get the maximum output from you XV8 Shield Drones: XV88 and Commanders. These guys make decent screens for your COs when they drop in. They need to be killed directly before anyone can target your Q...

Well right now you are just a "Shas" if you'd look under your name. :P Casual and Serious: Useful Distinction? It is my hope to discuss the merits of this serious/casual distinction, identifying which loadouts are casual and which are serious, and then also discussing the intended or assum...

Re: Comparing Mechanized Unit Builds

Pff I just gonna play empty Devilfishes. Last time the Burst Cannon + two Gun Drones killed 5 Deathwatch in cover. God was my opponent pissed. :D But yeah I agree with your conclusion. Gun Drones still have sick value even if you don't plan to ever use their Saviour Protocol during the game. And yea...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Of course we have a chance. But I wouldn't hold my breath.

Oh and just ignore any rumours about the Codex releases we got so far. They all were just predictions in hope to be right so they could say "Told ya!".

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

@Kakapo Fair enough. If something changes as much as GW and 40k did the past ~2 years (it really was a rather long process) it's just bound to happen that some people can't find their place in the new situation. It's always a tradeoff for a company and the community itself to change things up to su...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

One of my problems with mixing three different weapons on a suit is not just the range problems but rather that if the unit gets damaged and you're like down to one suit you'll have three different weapons who all do very little instead of having a suit with three weapons left who put a dent in that...

Re: Normal Crisis converted to Commanders/Coldstars

Depends on the tournament. Some say it's okay to use the base the model came with back then, some ask you to update to the current base size.
For such questions you should ask the tournament orga.

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

Our group loves it so far (age range is late 20s/early 30s for reference). Sure it's not perfect (cover rules need to be improved for sure) but no edition ever was or ever will be perfect. It's definitely worlds better than 7th and from what I've heard and read (didn't play before 7th) I'd say I pre...

Re: how do you beat this with tau

Well it's a 348p investment for those few S5 AP0 shots. If you think you need them then keep them, however I don't think they are worth it at all. Could get more Commander or 40 more Gun Drones for those points. Or even one of our overpriced units like Hammerhead or a Broadside would be a better inv...

Re: Hammerhead loadouts

Huh...seems my phone ate my reply from yesterday. :-? I think the main issue with Seekers is that you need LOS to shot them. I really don't understand why. You are marking the target with Markerlight so the missile knows where to hit. Nah need of LoS really isn't much of an issue at all. It's incred...

Re: Stealth Suits and the EW Relic Mission

I should have read properly. :P FORWARD OPERATIVES Alpha Legion Stratagem The deceitful strategies of the Alpha Legion are as illusive as a shadow and as tangled as a nest of vipers. Use this Stratagem when you can set up an ALPHA LEGION INFANTRY unit during deployment. You can set up the unit in co...

Re: Hammerhead loadouts

Well re-rolling 1s is ALWAYS useful and when you hit with one markerlight you usually hit with more as well. Unless you are really really really low on Markerlights. The things you are shooting Seeker Missiles at are usually high priority targets so other stuff would shoot at it as well so they're b...

So basically boxes with models worth of 140€? That would be one hell of value. :D

Re: Stealth Suits and the EW Relic Mission

Alpha Legion & co get set up there during deployment as well. It's infiltration, not deepstrike. Yes Infiltrating units are obviously really good in that mission but when both sides have them you really have to deploy first. Also if you want to improve that tactic just take Shadowsun on top of y...
