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.

Re: Battlemat with city map (what to buy?)

Eh that mostly doesn't matter. It's more of a question of what terrain you put on it (ruins, LoS blocker, scatter terrain etc.)

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

Well what does the tournament orga understand under "tank"? Monsters and tanks became pretty much a wash with 8th so saying "no tanks" while allowing monsters with similar stats would seem a bit weird to me. If such monsters are still allowed, a Quad Fusion Commander would still ...

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

The problem is that both, an additional weapon and the ATS, have the purpose of increasing the models damage output. One of them will always be better than the other. Hence why nobody takes the Multi-tracker. Re-rolling 1s on a special condition while we already have access to re-rolling 1s via sing...

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

I put an ATS on my Dual Burst HAZARD suits. I haven't done the math, but my experience tells me that my opponents really hate them. It's different with the hazards, Riptide, ghostkeels etc as the ATS is an add on it doesn't replace a weapon which is my main question, I have no doubt I would rather ...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

A question about the XV84 comes to my mind though. Can he shoot his Networked Markerlight together with his other weapons anyway? I know you can't do so with regular Markerlights but I don't remember the exact wording of the Markerlight rules so no clue whether the Networked Markerlight would be in...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Yeah but I think that was a good change. Infantry was getting killed waaaay too fast in 7th. Now infantry is actually worth taking apart from the inital burst again.

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

As far as I'm concerned, a unit has all the special rules it has on the Datasheet unless the text in that special rule says only a specific model from that unit has it or similar exceptions. Of course FW screwed up there, but what's more likely? FW putting there a reminder text of a basic Support Sy...
