Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

So I had a thought. I know he's going to be running a lot of venoms, which have the fly keyword, but also have that flicker field nonsense that puts me at -1 to him them at range. So here's the question, would it be worth subbing out one of the fusion commander's fusion blasters for a velocity track...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

For Hammerheads I'd try the Fire Support Hammerhead with Twin heavy burst cannon from Forgeworld. 16 S6 AP-1 shots sounds pretty nice. Longstrike can't take it unfortunately but he can buff them to BS2+ at least. Longstrike himself is without a doubt best with a Railgun. Also, not necessarily that ...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

No. The ionhead wouldn't be worth it for the effective range. As well as that, the railgun has higher strength and AP stats that the ion cannon's overcharge, and doesn't have the penalty of inflicting mortal wounds on the user (though longstrike does negate this). It means that the ion cannon isn't...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

If you are playing against Dark Eldar (really don't like the new name 'Drukari' or however you spell it), then there are some key points about your army to consider: 1. Are you taking any Heavy Support in the battle??? I would advise against it. At the moment, my XV88 Broadside squadron and my thre...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

Clever, I'll see if i can move some points around how i could make that happen.

One thing I have noticed is that none of their saves are 3+ (minus a couple units), and they lots of them have 5++ saves. So, by that logic, it doesn't really make sense to have anything throwing out AP -2

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

What do you figure is the most effective way of actually get said flamers in range?

Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

Hey gang, I've got a 2k game coming up against a dark eldar player. I had a 1k game against him earlier this week and managed to squeak out a win, but i was hoping to come in with a bit more of an idea of what to do. He's probably going to run a whole bunch of venoms, so the biggest question i have ...

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

Took your advice and dropped the second fusion commander, minimized pathfinder squad sizes, and dropped the marker light from the stealth squad. With those points i gave the second hammerhead a SMS, added markerlight drones to the solo drone squad, added the ethereal, and gave each of the bodyguards...

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

Solid advice, thank you!

If it were up to you, do you see any surplusage that could get shaved down to give each suit a missile pod and maybe squeeze in an ethereal?

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

After doing some more research I ended up changing the list a bit. Plasma is out, and as is their squad of drones. I'm repurposing that squad as crisis bodyguards for longstrike, who'll also be my warlord with feel no pain. Here's the updated list. +++ 8th Edition List (Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition)...

Re: Interaction between Tau Crisis Bodyguard and Savior Protocols

Makes sense, I was pretty sure it wasn't RAI, but I was wondering what people's interpretation of RAW was.

Interaction between Tau Crisis Bodyguard and Savior Protocols

Howdy gang, I asked this question on Dakka-Dakka and opinion is kind of split, so what does the collective conscience think here.

Hypothetically a crisis bodyguard takes a wound for a character model I have. If that bodyguard is also next to a drone, can that wound then be passed on to the drone?

2000 Point TAC List

Hey folks, I wrote up a 2k list for my local scene. I think it's got an answer to whatever comes at me, but please let me know if I have any glaring omissions or dumb choices. The idea here is that farsight drops down with the unit of CIB suits. The fireblade sticks with 2 strike teams to buff them,...

Re: Tau saviour protocol FAQ

I throw 2 down with my fusion commander. Makes the oponent have to shoot the drones before they shoot the commander. If I throw him down behind a tank i'd rather take 2 4++ saves than a few extra strength 5 shots that probably wont hit/do damage against the intended target. Yeah but the Fusion Comm...

Re: Tau 8th Edition - 1500 Points

Unless my understanding is off, no, the hammerhead does not include the cost of the railhead. You have to spend points on the chassis and the armament separately.

Re: 2000 Point Batallion/Supreme Command Detachments

Haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Back in 7th it saved them a few times, but I haven't really tested it in 8th yet.
