Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Arka, I like that a lot! I like how stealth suits have performed for me so far in 8e, so I like the two big blobs. I also think that the fireblade is practically useless with how many pathfinders I have in the list. So that's good! I like the ten seekers. It's also a good list for the multiplayer ga...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Yeah Arka, I'll use the breachers to push onto objectives, the RR pathfinders and Strike team to camp my backfield, and the Hammerheads to finish off anything that the QFCs don't kill. The stealthsuits I have found to be a very nice durable unit and can push infantry such as gaunts off objectives re...

1000 Points Mechanized Tau

I've just come up with a list for a game with my Tyranids friend(who runs hive fleet behemoth), and I need some tweaking done to it. Here's the list, made up of what works for me: Battalion: Longstrike: Railgun, 2x Gun Drones (191) Darkstrider: Markerlight (45) 6x Breachers (48) 6x Breachers (48) 6x...

Re: [GAME] Codex Predictions Pool

It's about the same tbh. both armies have expensive main hqs, cheapish troops, and lots of big specialist choices. we have more variety though. I would say they have less models by only a few.

Re: Miond's experimentals (R'Alai)

For battlesuits, I'd say asymetrical. Lovely conversions and fantastic painting. look forwards to seeing more.

Re: Themed Orca List

I was facing Stormtroopers with Hellguns, so light and medium infantry were all pretty fragile. Scions(the new name for stormtroopers) are great this edition(I should know, my friends literally flinch when I put a plasma command squad on the table :D ) But they are expensive, with even their basic ...

Re: 1000 Points Stealth List: Tau

I like the list, but I really have liked ATS on the stealth suits so far this edition. If we shave one of the stealth squads down to four it'll leave us with almost enough for five ATS, and dropping the drones on the stealth suits (they'll be shot off the board first turn tbh), will give us another ...

Re: The return of the Darklighter [WIP update 09/10/17]

They look good! those new necromunda models are great. Oh, just an FYI about nerf guns, if you want it to work well and look good once you've painted it, separate the two halves and spray it inside and out. it stops the colour leaking in on the joins.

Re: 1000 Points Stealth List: Tau

Arka, I think I will drop the ion, but I will keep the ATS on the Commander, which is enough to pop some drones in to give the ghostkeel/stealth suits some extra survivability(not that they need it :P ). although, I could replace the ATS with a drone controller for those drones. I could also replace...

Re: Victory against Ad Mech at 1,000 points

The Kastelans have a rule which, on a save roll of 6, they deal a mortal wound back. Also, out of interest, which canticles did he use?(if you remember, ofc)

Re: 650 Point League Incoming

If you want to run a broadside, shave a few points by giving it plasma instead of sms. It’ll shave off 20 points to use elsewhere. If you don’t mind taking it out, a CIB team with the ethereal dropped and all the drones gone, will fill out the list nicely I would say. Anyway, that’s my take on this....

I love Titanfall. Can’t wait to see them finished. What are you thinking for paint? Camo? Individual colours for each suit?

Re: 1000 Points Stealth List: Tau

I just realised that. That's why I took a target lock on the Ghostkeel. What about this: Vanguard: Commander: 4x Fusion Blasters, 2x Gun Drones (176) Commander: 3x CIB, 1x ATS, 2x Gun Drones (154) Stealth Suits x5: 5x Burst Cannon, 5x ATS (190) Stealth Suits x5: 5x Burst Cannon, 5x ATS (190) Ghostke...

1000 Points Stealth List: Tau

So, I, inspired by several stealthy lists floating around, decided to make up a smaller version for my (pretty much) weekly games. The list I've come up with is below. Vanguard: Commander: 4x Fusion Blasters, 2x Gun Drones (176) Commander: 3x CIB, 1x ATS, 2x Gun Drones (154) Stealth Suits x5: 5x Bur...

Re: Xenos Armies Development Observations

I would say that this is a solid prediction. We have already heard that the Tau codex won't be kroot/auxiliary focussed, so an Empire Auxiliaries codex is a possibility, especially with Lady Atia's rumour with something "not tau" is coming for our faction. Also, I wouldn't be completely su...

Re: Battle Report #3: Tau Sept vs Genestealer Cults (1500)

Out of the broodlord and the Patriarch, only the Patriarch can cult ambush. if both ambushed, then they are both Patriarchs. If they provided buffs to the other cult units, they are most certainly Patriarchs. The Broodlord and Patriarch are identical except for their faction keywords and the psychic...

Re: Battle Report #3: Tau Sept vs Genestealer Cults (1500)

I only have one comment, and that is that a Broodlord is exactly the same as a Patriarch, only for Tyranids. By any chance was it a Primus?
Other than that, looks like a good game. Us tau players need as many moral victories as we can get.

Re: To be or not to Imperivm

Depends on which faction your primary detachment (the one with your warlord) is. For example, I often run a Battalion of Militarum Tempestus along side my AdMech, but since my warlord is my Tech-Priest Dominus, it would be an Adeptus Mechanicus army. Does that make sense?
