Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you don't like

2. Sniper drones: would be nice if they had something akin to rending, giving a -something as their AP when rolling a 6+ to wound (especially as other sniper units have such rules) You know, somewhere deep inside of me I have the hope that they didn't gave them any fancy rule so they can re-introdu...

Re: Is taking a lot of Ghostkeels viable in 2000 points?

No, don't drop them completely. I played a game with a Ghostkeel with basically no Markerlights at all (only 3) and it wasn't exactly fun. Even if it's just re-rolls of 1s and Target Lock it already makes the unit that much better.

Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

Make HI MLs heavy 3 instead this rule. Tigershark AX 1-0 is obvious Alhbough I hate say it, for order of balance Tigershark Fighter/bomber should pay somethin for the missile launcher. Swiftstrike railgun should cost less, like 65tps. Give remora back the ML. If R'alai character assasin he should b...

Re: Tau 8E match-ups

Here's a reason- there still seems to be no proxy for it. Red Dog Minis makes a good one, and there's of course the one in the Commander set, but I doubt it will ever be sold as a bit on eBay again. Do it like me. Buy a ton of Pathfinder. Only equip them with Rail Rifles because Railweaponry is bos...

Re: Is taking a lot of Ghostkeels viable in 2000 points?

Not too many Ghostkeels in general. It's just too many because you are lacking the Markerlights to support that many. Especially because they don't have Target Locks. As said, take one less and use those points to buy more Pathfinders and you are good to go. I mean holy hell, you could get 20 more P...

Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you don't like

I actually like that we can simulate a lot of the Markerlight buffs with Support Systems to make some of the Battlesuits mostly Markerlight independent. So far the only rule/mechanic I don't like are: 1. Basically everything Ghostkeel. It's dumb that one can just snipe his Stealth Drones so easily a...

Re: Grav Inhibitor Drones

On their own they are not very impressive unless the enemy is really impatient with his charges. However in terrain they start becoming really good with Advanced Rules (-2" when the enemy charges through Ruins or Woods + another d3" less = -4" on average). Now if you want to you could...

Re: Tau 8E match-ups

I don't see any reason to take any gun other than the cyclic ion blaster. It's amazing in nearly every scenario. Here's a reason- there still seems to be no proxy for it. Red Dog Minis makes a good one, and there's of course the one in the Commander set, but I doubt it will ever be sold as a bit on...

Re: Need list advice: Kroots!

Krootox are good enough to use in a Kroot themed army imo. You can easily bring 3x3 for about 300 points. That's 9 Rapidfire1 S7 AP-1 D1d3 shots at 48" range. Just expect them to die rather quick due their save of 6+ despite having T5 W3. Funny thing about them though is, that if the enemy is c...

I was talking about large blasts as well as small blasts.
