Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

A nice way to buff the Railgun would be to give it d6 shots. Sure it wasn't a blast before but it's supposed to punch through tanks like paper so it should be able to cut through infantry like nothing as well. That's basically the same as a blast just not with a round template but a straight one if ...

Re: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

But I remember when this was a very friendly and helpful community and I find it disappointing to be met with what is essentially a response meant to humiliate me with no constructive feedback regarding the topic. That's definitely not the case though. If you understood my post like that..well I'm ...

Re: 2k Semi-Competitve List

I do face a lot of FLY, which is why I'm using the VT on the Keels. I also get annoyed by the -1 BS some FLY has. It's it easier to deal with. I do start a Cadre off in the droneport, so I can easily get some good alpha strike in. Also, if I need to I can absolutely stack 5 on a unit that must go d...

Re: Untouchable ghostkeels

Yep, if the enemy requires a 7+ to hit your model, they can't hit unless they have some positive to-hit modifier. Note that it counts for us as well and at times even worse since we only have BS4+ on most units. If you play a nightfighting mission where you get a negative to-hit modifier depending o...

Re: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

So, I've been looking over the current Tau options and reading through the forums to see people's feedback to get an idea for the best way to optimize firing output and uncover the synergy within the army. The number one thing that jumped out to me was the redundancy of re-rolling 1's. The Ethereal...

Re: Modeling Tau Females - a discussion

Note, unlike to the two previous examples, the shape of Shadowsun's head is oval shaped (true of the model as well). If your ignore the nasal slit, then the shape of the head would tell you whether the model was male or female. The first two heads are rectangular and therefore male, and since Shado...

Re: 2k Semi-Competitve List

Do you face lots of flyers? Different groups I suppose but personally I'd swap the velocity trackers on ghostkeels for ATS. Also I'm guessing you put the fireblade on the droneport for 5 markerlight hitting on 2+ ATS is pretty wasted on Fusionkeels. Multi-Tracker would be a nice option though so yo...

Re: Start Collecting disappears in the US

Also to the re-packaging, notice how GW tends to give units only the options that are in the box lately? Could mean that either Crisis lose access to CIB and AFP or maybe (hopefully but unlikely) we'll get CIB and AFP bitz in the Crisis box. ;) Oh snap! I really hope that this is indeed just a repac...

Re: Modeling Tau Females - a discussion

It also wouldn't really matter since a woman in full combat gear doesn't really look much different than a man in full combat gear. Maybe a bit smaller but there are also short men and all GW models are one standard size anyway. ;)

New color scheme is pretty unlikely for us considering the Vior'la white/red is already a rather new one. ^^

Re: Start Collecting disappears in the US

Most likely just a re-packaging. They have to inculde the Datasheets at some point after all and the Start Collecting box still comes with the formation rules which have no place in 8th edition.

Why is there no bit in Xenos 2 under Commander that talks about drones dropping off so to speak? Am I just missing it? Is it based on a different rule somewhere? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

Re: Help with support system and xv8 atenna

Yeah the antenna on the head is just there because it's what T'au have on all their units. It also serves to show their rank ('la, 'ui, 'vre, 'o) so if you want to paint them fluffy they are kinda needed. :P

Re: 750 points patrol army

Solid advice again. I love this community! I don't intend to go WAAC on my friend, but I don't want to pull the punches. He is a veteran of other board games (just not a GW player) and he will notice if I used a deliberately bland army. I can see the point on going troop heavy, though. Actually, I ...

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

Piranha cover is a staple demand from people (the Forgeworld TX42 is nice but still too much unarmored in my taste). The luggage case (that I've done from a conversion shown on our board) didn't needed a piranha model to be made. I plan to do one in the future, once I will have a 3D model of the pi...

Re: 750 points patrol army

Well in my last game I lost 5 Breacher because I rolled 5 1s when my Devilfish got destroyed by a Lascannon and the remaining 4 got chopped up by a Deathwatch unit with Powerswords. :D

It even was in a 750p match as well. :P

Re: Firesight Marksman Vs Pathfinders.

Well I do think a single Marksman is great to get your first Markerlight hit on a unit to follow up with Pathfinder....but so is a Fireblade who has BS2+ and a great ability to boost your Gun Drones or Strike Teams or even just your Pathfinder Carbines for just 18p more. ^^ I admit he has no fancy s...
