Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

That's true, the grass is always greener, etc. We could also refer to the analogy of the boy who cried wolf. This is all true. I used to play World of Warcraft back in the day. At some point they launched an expansion that had some really ridiculous stuff in it, I won't bother mentioning them but we...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

Necrons vs Tau on Warhammer TV facebook live stream beginning right now. The guy playing Tau is from Tabletop Tactics. I've watched both games he's played. He's very pessimistic about Tau on 8th and his summary is that the nerfbat has hit way too hard with no real justification to back this up. He'...

Re: Designer's Commentary - 'FAQ' for 40k 8th!

You can almost feel the facepalming in their answer for the last question on <Regiment> and <Chapter> keywords with the same time. Its like they are dying to just say "Don't be a jerk, guys. You know exactly what we meant.". Definitely a facepalm answer. A more serious answer has already ...

Re: Riptide overnerf?

I agree that the pendulum swung quite hard on the Riptide. But I'm hopeful the living faq will change things. It was somwhat undercosted in 7e, but now it's not very useable. This 'what was good is now bad, and vice versa' system GW usually does every big edition change should stop. People are more...

Re: Markerlight shooting and timing

Yes... yes you probably could, though your opponent will undoubtedly make a face at least as sketchy as your icon... :) I think that until the first couple of stable Tau builds emerge (if they emerge), they'll be so sorry to see you struggle they'll just turn the other way in sympathy. If not, you ...

Re: [1500 pt] New player 8th

Second, you said yourself that you'd rather play Tau as a mobile force, not a static gunline. If that's your playstyle, then you should drop the turrets, since the keep you very statonary. Again, first to cut, that's true. But again, they are setup and forget, aren't they? Quite the contrary. If th...

Re: Markerlight Discussion

Had my 2v2 game yesterday. T'au and Tyranids vs AdMech (except for two Kastellan and the HQ only Skitarii) and Space Wolves. Not going too much into detail since it's not the right thread for that and because my units got mostly ignored except for 3 rounds of shooting on my two Stealth Suit teams s...

Re: Drones on 8th : Which ones/where?

I'll start off is I am going to give 40k another try after many years and I figured I'd try Tau as well cause the suits were always cool looking. That said, it seems like Markerlight Drones are a waste. With BS 5+ it takes 3 to reliable get a single counter on a unit. At the same time, 3 Gun Drones...

Re: 8th Ed Alpha Strike (Or, Why Crisis Suits are Expensive)

Ok, so, from what I gather, going first is a lot more important against shooty armies than it is for assault armies.
