Re: [IceFall's 13,000+ points] The 'Margin' Cadre

Very nice! 13,000 points! Great paint scheme with the blue and grey. I can see why for such a big painting job you would want an airbrush! Look forwards to seeing more!

Weekly Discussion #2: Which Sept's lore interests you the most, and why?

So, ATT, back this week with another question for you all. My personal favorite sept would be Tash'var. Tash'var has a reputation for being tough, and has withstood many alien attacks. According to the 7e Codex, Tash'var Breachers are some of the best in the empire, and their Sunshark Bomber pilots ...

1000 pt list

Right, Shas'faan. I would call upon your experience in combat to aid me. A couple days from now, I will be playing in a multi-game event type thing with some friends.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Does anyone know how the other codices fared in this regard, or which unreleased codices might act as a lighthouse, going forward? The adeptus mechanicus lost a relic for their skitarii vanguard alpha, the Pater Radium, which had had a bit in the box. Guard lost rough riders in the codex, but they ...

Weekly Discussion #1: What happens to Gue'vesa once they join the Tau?

So, Por'faan. As an attempt to get some deep thought going around the orbital, I would like to do a series of questions and topics related to the Tau Empire, and anything within it. I've decided I'm going to put out a question or topic once a week, and us scholars and loremasters can have a good nat...

Re: Skirmish List 20PL

Well, what I failed to mention is after witnessing several crushing defeats my friend decided that if he could use a hive fleet ability from the new codex, I could use the old marker system. Plus apparently 6's always hit. And we had no brb, so. Anyway, I think the old system is alright, but unbalan...

Re: Skirmish List 20PL

Cool, so played a couple games against a friend, he took his usual nids list: a broodlord, 2x 5 genestealser, and deathleaper. We had a decent amount of terrain on the table. I deployed behind buildings, as far as possible away from the genestealers, and my commander went in reserve. He got first tu...

Skirmish List 20PL

So, ATT, practically every friday I go into my local GW store for games night. Usually we play 2 or 3 small games, with 2-3 people a side, and as I have started working on my tau after finishing off my AdMech for armies on parade, I thought I might bring them along. I wanted a list that I could impr...

How do the XV9 pulse submunitions fare this edition? I've taken a look at the rules and with an ATS they could be nasty.

Re: Going against the nids

On playing against nids, my best advice would be stay away from genestealers. They can and in my experience have torn apart TANKS easily in cc. Also, try take out any flyers/shooty things ASAP to save your sunshark. mine was taken down first turn by a tyrannofex.

Re: Frontier: The Highest Wall

I would say option two. I don't understand these either, but two sounds cooler. :D
I would say they aren't meant to be understood.
