Re: 8th edition

Honestly Calmsword, getting me excited with comments like this: "More conversations indicate that there is going to be updates to codexes but rewrites will be on the way with a big push for the xenos factions after chaos is done (imperials have a few more as well) but that campaign books (which...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

Etherials don't have drone controller and where did BS5 come from?

Re: I need advice on a army, I am new to warhammer and even if tau is not the best for new players, I will be playing ta

Buying too much... I agree, don't buy too much at once. I've made this mistake myself and would warn others against it. It's nice to have a lot of models to choose from to craft an army that can play well in a given situation, but not when you lack the experience to make sound decisions when doing ...

GSC First Curse Spam with Supporting CAD

Tyranids were my first army and I can field 1 First Curse formation. I've wondered how many would fit into 1850 and what to bring along if there was room. The following from Genestealer Cults perfectly fits 1850. --CAD-- HQ 2 Magus @ ML 2, one with the Crouchling, other with the Staff Troops 10 Neop...

Building lists around Tetras

Hello fellow Tau players. I'm looking for some input from more experienced players. I have 4 Tetras coming in, which will actually be assembled as conversions from Mantic Jet Bikes. I saw them in another thread and really loved the style over the existing model. 4 of them for ~35$ (shipping included...

Re: Countering Magnus the Red

Wouldn't 18 shots from CIBs with VT and BS5 inflict 7.5 wounds on average with 2.5 wounds taken. This is what mathhammer tells me when Magnus is 3++.
Plus the 12 BC cannon shots from the GKs and shots from crisis suits and commander would be nice if he's downed.

Countering Magnus the Red

Looking for some input on ideas in general to get a discussion going. However my particular scenario is for a 1k pt game. I'm thinking I want to limit my models on the field and force my opponent to deal with a specific threat. With that in mind; I believe a Ghostkeel wing seems like a decent option...

Re: Targeted Reconnaissance Cadre

Based on the formation definition in those pictures I would say only 1 Broadside.
Also only 1 Ghostkeel.
As the formation doesn't include the word unit when referring to the Broadside or the Ghostkeel.
It does include the word team/unit when referring to Pathfinders/Stealth suits.

Re: Targeted Reconnaissance Cadre

If it's just the 6"... then I won't ever be fielding this. A huge chunk of points that is beaten by other formations. We'll at least I needed pieces of this. Anyone wanna buy a devilfish & 10 pathfinders?

Re: Targeted Reconnaissance Cadre

I ended up pre-ordering last night. Can't beat the deal on this. Kind of hoping some family members spoil me these holidays and I end up with a second box ;p Still waiting on the formation details/bonuses, hoping it's something interesting. I'm just getting started with Tau, they seem to have a lot ...
