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.

2000 Point Batallion/Supreme Command Detachments

Hey all, was hoping for some feedback for this TAC list. The idea would be that the suits all start in reserve, and arrive where needed. Farsight lands with the unit of CIB suits+their drones. They screen for him, and he uses heroic intervention if they get assaulted. I think i've got my bases cover...

Re: Modelling the 4x Fusion Blaster Commander

Seeing as I already have a model that is infamous in my community for his dual fusion blaster ways, and as he has two on his shoulders as it stands. I think Ol' Crisis Bob just got himself up an promotion to Commander Bob.

First 2000 Point 8th Edition List

Hey folks, just figuring out a starting point for my 2k, 8th edition list. Thoughts and opinions welcome. Most of the stuff is fairly self-explanable I think, but the thought with farsight is to drop him and the crisis suits (along with the drones) near each other. The suits and drones will act as a...

Re: Observations From My First 2 Games of 8th Ed

Heya Shrike, thanks for the positive news. Lots of doom and gloom about, glad to here our fish boys might not be so dead in the water. One quick note, I don't think the cadre fireblade's ability can affect breachers. Fireblade's ability specifically affects "pulse carbines, rifles, and pistols....

2000 Point CADs only list, Shadowsun Bomb

First time running a Shadowsun bomb and was hoping for some input on my list. The idea being to use the tetras as beacons to avoid scattering, thus the kit to make jinking a bit easier. This is for a local league so it doesn't need to be ITC competitive. +++ New Roster (Warhammer 40,000 7th Edition)...

Re: 1850 Pt List - For Upcoming Tournament

Hey hey, I wish ya the best of luck in the tournament! A few of my thoughts. 1. I think you're gonna need some more markerlight support. You only have one dedicated source and if your opponent knows anything about playing against Tau, they are going to get wiped out turn 1, hard. If formations are a...

Riptide Unit & Nova Thrust Move

Quick question, if I have a unit of 2 or more riptides. And say one gets nova and I select nova profile on its weapon, and the other gets nova and chooses the jump move, is that legal? Do both get the 4d6 jump?

Re: XV8 Crisis Loadouts for a starting player

Right on, i've reconfigured to have a unit of 4 suits all with dual plasmas and counterfire. Seems like it'd be good like you said to deal with things that DS or to DS them and use them as hunter killers.

Re: XV8 Crisis Loadouts for a starting player

What I've been having trouble with is positioning/deploying my plasma suits. I've got broadsides in the backfield for fire support, and a few monats with missile pods. I was thinking of converting some of those monats to plasma suits, but I don't know the best way to run them. As plasma monats? In u...

Re: [1000] Combined Arms Det plus Drones

Hey hey, welcome to the greater good! So a few comments, at least from my limited experience. First, the commander. His equipment is a little bit scattered. If you plan on sticking him with some drones, it may be worth your while to give him target locks and missile pods so that he can shoot at the ...

Re: How many XV8's must have an Farsight Enclaves CAD?

You absolutely can. In fluff those were called Monats. I know of no rule that prevents you from just spamming single suit monats to fill up all your troop slots.
