Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think it is very likely we will see the return of our signature systems I believe GW wanted to test the waters on units before they start making army specific relics. I'd also like to see sept specific rules as well. Also I don't mind having a codex after all the other armies get theirs the power ...

Re: Tournament list BAO

Hmm I did not think of that. For 7 command points not bad Bolters will never get close enough to shoot at the unar lol. I'll consider about taking out the drones and sub them for more firewarriors or gun drones. Also with the unar and drones you have to have good judgment about when to take wounds o...

Re: Has Tau deepstike hit the deck???

First of all you can't Deepstrike pathfinders so you have been doing that wrong, they don't have jet packs or teleportation. Next people don't deepstrike as often because it's not reliable you can have a 500 point unit disappear if you mishap and roll a 1 on top of that you need to roll to see if yo...

Re: Competitive Ghostkeel Discussion

Thanks for the input you guys My normal list usually includes a etherial and 2 crisis suits for the compusarary CAD the ethereal is cheap and stays off the board most of the game and only comes in when he is forced to. The crisis suits are my late game deepstrikers with plasma rifles. To get those a...

Competitive Ghostkeel Discussion

Hello fellow commanders I'd like to open up a discussion about The XV-95 ghostkeel and more so how to form a effective strategy to use them in a competitive meta. I have been trying for a long time to find a effective way to run them but I have had no luck. I have tried both formations like the opti...

Re: XV-109 Y'vharra battlesuit strategys

If anything the XV-9 Hazard class need to go to another place in the force org chart probably elite would be a good choice as if you want ghostkeels and riptides there are formations that will smooth your itch for cheese. The 107 R'vana needs to be redone as far as giving us back AP3 it needs it to ...

Re: Barracuda AX 5-2 Loadouts?

I try and I try and I try no wonder we have fallen so far this is probably the most backwards forums I have ever been apart of all the lists people put on here suck. You won't use the best equipment you have available to the tau And for gods sakes people stop using hammer heads and broadsides they a...

Re: Barracuda AX 5-2 Loadouts?

Well the judge who ruled it was the head judge of the Las Vegas open for ITC. He says it ignores cover entirely. He said it in front of the entire tournament. And he is a hard judge and does not like overpowered things ESPECIALLY tau. But RAW the barracuda ignores cover. Play it how you want but if ...

Re: Barracuda AX 5-2 Loadouts?

Go with the CIB and the ion cannon loadout. And also the side guns ignore cover all together. I had this ruled by a judge at hammer of wrath a big tournament in California.

Barracuda FTW

Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

I would not give up the D cannon for this it's really under whelming. The only reason I would use this is if I can play it in the ITC

Re: Battle testing the barracuda

I was of the impression it did not ignore all cover saves. Well it's done in the way you interpreted it. My interpretation is that it ignores any coversaves and the unconventional coversaves such as jink or turbo boosting any cover saves at all. But I can be interpreted as only those saves as well....

Re: Battle testing the barracuda

It's always easy to say "they would". Language doesn't only work in exact one way. RAW it's clear for me that it doesn't ignore very kind of cover save but i see how people can come to a different conclusion. In the end it's just badly worded and needs clarification. 100% agree with you o...

Re: Battle testing the barracuda

Imo even RAW it means it ignores only cover saves from supersonic, jink and moving flat out. I had this discussion with someone on frontline If they did not want people interpreting it as ignores cover then they should of written the rule like this Auto targeting: weapons with this special rule ign...

Re: Battle testing the barracuda

Would an all Burst have been better against MEQ's? You would shred swarm and horde army's 10/10 times. But for a all marine army their is a few factors you need to consider. Yes you would have more shots and wound on 3/2s but you give up your ability to knock out the transports running around in ma...

Re: Battle testing the barracuda

I ran the new barracuda in an 5k per side apoc game this weekend so obviously very different than a typical 1850 game. Loadout was the Ion Cannon main gun with cyclic ion blaster upgrades for a total of 11 str7 shots (6 of which ignore cover). I ran this because I think it is nasty anti-flyer suppo...

Re: XV-109 Y'vharra battlesuit strategys

Generally I only get to play in tournaments, but it could certainty be toned down. By the way drop the AFP it does not have a lot of use. Bring a fusion blaster instead and get more marker drones. Yeah, with FA slots full of 109s, how would you add more marker drones? Use heavy gun drones. They hav...

Re: Battle testing the barracuda

I was wondering how you got through the crimson hunter's native 4+ cover save so easily? I am assuming that your opponent took the formation in his codex if he was bringing 3 of them. With their new mobility it is absurdly easy for them to fly behind other flyers and turn 180 to fire into rear arcs...
