Farsight Enclaves - A Codex: Tau Empire Supplement (Question)

Good afternoon all! I am starting to get back into the wonderful life of Tau and noticed that there have been quite a few supplements released since I've played Tau, specifically the Mont'Ka and Kauyon series. I have the "7th edition" Tau codex (the one with the Stormsurge) and wanted to g...

Re: UPDATED 12/03/17 [BLOG] Close Assault Stealth Cadre - 10 Year Hobby Hiatus New Tau Project!

The paint is very very smooth, I'm surprised you get that our of your rattle can of Mechanicus Grey. I use the Mephiston Red rattle can for my Blood Angels and it seems to gunk up the details a bit, maybe I need to hold it further away from the model, although the coverage is not so great when I do ...

Re: [BLOG] Close Assault Stealth Cadre - 10 Year Hobby Hiatus New Tau Project!

Your painting is very clean, and the weathering and camo on the devilfish are top notch. If I may, what paints and colors are you using for this great color scheme? I wholeheartedly agree! This is a beautiful scheme and as I too am getting back into Tau, was looking for a scheme similar to this, th...

Re: 1000 Beginner's Tournament List

Hey all! I just wanted to say thanks again for all your help! Unfortunately, this wasn't a "new 40k players tourney" as advertised, as 6 out of the 8 players were actual veteran/tourney players, but I learned a lot of the people I played against were patient and helped explain a few things...

Only the Ghostkeel can have one and he exchanges his main weapon for free.


This is all starting to make sense to me, haha! Thanks so much for helping out a new player.

Re: 1000 Beginner's Tournament List

I finished my Broadside last night, definitely one of my favorite models to put together and paint so far. I'm going to work on a new list on my lunch break today, probably a CAD + OSC like I stated in my previous post. I'm kind of glad I don't have to worry about additional Fire Warriors, this way ...

Re: 1000 Beginner's Tournament List

Thanks so much! I've learned a WHOLE lot of information from this thread and I'm glad I'm figuring this out now before I show up Saturday looking like an idiot.

I'm gonna try to rewrite a CAD + OSC tonight or tomorrow and see what I can come up with.

Re: 1000 Beginner's Tournament List

Panzer (and everyone too), thanks so much for the quick replies, its really helping me since I've put myself in a tough spot here with only a few days left to prepare. Despite all the solid advice, and more of my stubbornness probably, I really want to use the Optimized Stealth Cadre as I have spent...

Re: 1000 Beginner's Tournament List

Thanks to all for the help! This is my first game, so there are TONS I don't fully understand about lists, rules, and such - even though I've been doing homework for months now watching videos and reading my codex/rulebook. I'm doing my hardest to learn, be open minded, and get into my local 40k com...

Re: 1000 Beginner's Tournament List

Thanks so much for the fast reply!

I added the gun drones in because 2 came free with each suit. I didn't think about leadership test issues. I'll take those out.

1000 Beginner's Tournament List

Hello all! I started collecting my Tau army back in January of last year, and slowly been building my army. I have never modeled or painted miniatures before so I've been watching tons of videos, battle reports, and reading about different paint techniques and learning the rules. I bought the codex ...
