Re: Concrete objectives

You could always use the mysterious objective rules from the previous edition. I didn't like them, so I made my own mysterious objectives in the last edition. I can't remember for the life of me what they were, but I know that one was a kind of light refraction anomaly that gave a cover bonus, and ...

Re: 250pt vs Ork Escalation League game

It really comes down to what kind of list the Ork player is going to bring. You should have good chances against a more elite list but I don't think we can bring enough dakka against a green “tide“ type of list on that point level. And I agree with Arka about the Markerlight. A single markerlight is...

Re: Updates to Astra Militarum

Nah they are complaining about Comissars getting the nerfhammer instead of Conscripts who were the actual problem. I can see their point there, GW could have handled it better for sure. However the thrashing of some of the AM player is ridiculous. It serves well as a hotfix for now and we'll see whe...

Re: What does RAW mean by "hull"?

I think the main distinction intended by the rules is to create a distinction between when one measures from the hull and when one measures from the barrel. It never makes a clear statement about what exactly qualifies as the hull, but logic would dictate that it's the main body of a vehicle exclud...

Re: Battalion 750pts

I think that's pretty much the best you can do for 750p to be honest. Maybe switchout one Drone Controller with ATS but that's a minor issue. The thing with low point games is that there will always be lists you just can't win against unless you knew you'd be facing such a list (and to be fair, we a...

Re: Battalion 750pts

Yeah tbh if you go against AM and they're going for tank spam in 750pts I'd use this list which would be very difficult to deal with. What's about this roster [747 Pts]? Patrol [219 Pts] Commander [176 Pts] 4x Fusion Blaster [84 Pts], 2x MV4 Shield Drone [16 Pts] Breacher Team [43 Pts] Markerlight ...

Good advice but... I'm newbie and have no idea what's work and what's just silly)

Re: Battalion 750pts

So, suit-only is almost not real, 3 tanks + some infrantly isn't really good... What's good t'au roster for 750pts then? Or it'd be better make a 1000pts roster with suits and drones and learn how to play with bigger army? As I said before. Same stuff that's good at higher point levels. Gun Drones ...

Re: What does RAW mean by "hull"?

Well there's no real definition of "hull" in the rulebook of 8th but I'd say stuff like antenna and sensors and banners don't count.

Re: Battalion 750pts

Yeah I'd suggest taking only one Crisis unit in such a small point list. They're really too expensive and too dependent on the rest of the army to take more than one in small point games. I also wouldn't recommend a full suit list, but if we'd try to enforce such a list you'd need to add Marker Dron...

Re: Effectiveness of EWO

About has 'hard' as a first turn charge out of reserves. Just less common to have that option.
Heldrake would be the first unit to come in mind that does first turn charges regularly.

Re: The Tau Triumvirate

I honestly wouldn't expext a triumvirate at all. That was a Gathering Storm thing and so far exclusive for those books. There are no indications that GW will make other triumvirate boxes.

Re: Effectiveness of EWO

I think the effectiveness of EWO is just an empirical question: Is your enemy going to try and turn 1 charge you with a significant portion of their army (i.e. not like 5 genestealers)? If the answer is yes, its gonna be worth it on the big units. Otherwise probably not. I guess it has some utility...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

2d6 damage wouldn't be the solution though. Just having a single shot is the problem. It was the problem in 7th and is the problem now. Oh, I'm talking about having both abilities. 2D6 damage and two shots. Space Marine Predators have 4d6 potential damage. Leman Russes have 3D6 potential damage, or...
