Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

I think I will weigh in on this topic, as I have an opinion about mixed-weapon teams. If they are in the right spot, at the right time, they are great. However, as many others have said, despecialization does limit what you can do. I think out of all the loadouts that have been discussed, 2x Flamer ...

Re: The Gue'Vesa Freikorps of Paradyso

I am loving the Ogryn. Those renegade models are (IMO) the best forge world sculpts ever. I for one am not disappointed with the paint scheme on it, it looks fabulous and fits well with the rest of your units.

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

You have 24 Burst Cannons. Each set of crisis suits comes with three and each commander with one, and from your to do list I see you have six CIB and six Coldstar Burst Cannons? so I estimate eight sets of crisis suits (24 Crisis) and six Commanders? Anyway, nice work. That is an absolute ton of thi...

Re: 1000 Points Optimized List

Arka, I reckon the first list is best. This edition we do excel in the 18" range bracket, and I really don't need that many markerlights, especially with our new stratagem. I will post up a batrep when I get the chance to use the list.

Re: 1000 Points Optimized List

Removing the pathfinders gives me a lack of markerlights, so I want them to stay. A Fusion Blaster off could work, but that isn't quite optimal, as I have not much antitank to start with bar the QFC's. Another thing to do would be to remove the cadre fireblade and pop in another three pathfinders. T...

1000 Points Optimized List

So far in 8e, I have not won a single proper game with tau. I reckon it is time for that to change. The List: SUPREME COMMAND: Commander: 4x Fusion Blasters, 2x Shield Drones (176) Commander: 4x Fusion Blasters (160) Coldstar Commander: ATS, Shield Generator (150) Commander: 3x CIB, ATS (138) OUTRID...

Re: 1000 points vs. Adeptus Mechanicus

I'll talk to him about it. Darkstrider and a few pathfinders should paint up targets well enough, especially with our new stratagem.

Re: 1000 points vs. Adeptus Mechanicus

His list has 4 hammerheads total, Longstrike plus two railgun tanks, plus an Ionhead. as he has not got everything planned yet, he could probably afford a QFC if he really needed more antitank.

Re: New to Tau: I did a thing, Help!

Well, first off, we need a solid core to the list. I am assuming you don't care about WYSIWYG? So, a casual list. So a good core list you can tweak would look like this: BATTALION: Commander: 4x Fusion Blasters, 2x Shield Drones (176) Commander: 2x Missile Pod, ATS, Stim Injector (119) Fire Warrior ...

Re: 1000 points vs. Adeptus Mechanicus

Yes his list will be longstrike and friends, with stealth suits and devilfish. I reckon since he is already going T'au for Longstrike he should be able to fit in Darkstrider, but he hasn't gotten the specifics done yet. on Arquebii, I actually think that the way I did it is right, because I said 2x ...

Re: 1000 points vs. Adeptus Mechanicus

Arka, for the militarum tempestus command squads, you can only take one per tempestor prime, and two orders per squad with the Tempestus Command Rods are great. And yes, everything was embarked in the beginning. as for the Arquebuses, Arquebii sounds cooler :D Yojimbob, this is actually only half of...

1000 points vs. Adeptus Mechanicus

Today, ATT, I have another batrep for you. Now, this is a slightly different batrep. My tau playing friend, in preparation for a tournament next year, put together 1/2 of his 2000 point final list to test it out. I was playing my mechanicum, in order to test out the Stygies forge world trait. So, as...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Well, late last night, I just thought of something. if the Master of Mont-ka trait makes it so you don't count as having moved, how would that interact with Kauyon?

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 ...
