Re: Struggling with Space Marines (8th)

Fusion Blasters and the -1 to hit for the Ghostkeels and Stealth suits saved me VS Primaris. I didn't roll great the whole match, but I damn sure hit when it counted. He had a hard time putting wounds into my GK. I put some serious dents in his units and took out 2 sets of Primaris (he had one unit ...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

but the SM and Chaos can do everything. Having some advantage to help take them down is mandatory. I'm afraid to play Adeptus Astartes after what I've seen. Last saturday I saw 5 Scouts with Sniper Rifles and 2 Devastors with grav cannons kill my Ghostkeel in one turn. The first took out the stealt...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

I am beginning to love the Kroot. I put them up front to harass a Baal Predator and keep it from getting into my back lines. I destroyed the Predator round 3, however, none of my kroot made it alive. I ended up in a draw (played an open war deck game. Supply cache.) I had them in front of my Fire Wa...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

Having 2 commanders wouldn't be a bad idea because you have to put in perspective what other people are doing currently. I just watched my buddies Lamartes kill my Stormsurge in 1 round of melee. I put dents in that guy, but then his Sanguinary Priest keeps giving him wounds back while his Primaris ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Being rather new to Tau and tabletop 40k, I have to say i'm excited for this new edition. Discussing with a couple of friends of mine who help me in the craft, the game is going to have a lot of balancing. The fact we don't have to get locked in combat, transports will have some survivability to br...

Re: Feel no pain and how to overcome it

To be completely honest? Nah Submunition rounds are rarely worth it. That counts for the Railhead alltogether. Ten out of ten times the Ionhead is worth his points more than the Railhead. Even as Longstrike against Astra Militarum I had to learn the hard truth that a single S10 AP1 shot is not that...

Re: Feel no pain and how to overcome it

Firstly, thank all of you for the replies. Secondly, I won against him this weekend in a 1000 point game. By round 5, I had taken out most of his DC. His thunderhammer landed on the tank I took out and he splattered against everything. I managed to whittle him down to 3 left. He only took 5 this tim...

Feel no pain and how to overcome it

:P In Tau, we are strong! I got my first chance to play a game using a friends Blood Angel Army. He had a 10 man Death Company that did not get focused down. First off, I fear Powerswords more than ever now. I was getting sliced up until I finally focused them down. These guys are absolute monsters....

Re: New army is almost here, now what

You're welcome! :) Well, if you want infantry you can take either the Kroot or Firewarriors. However, the important thing to keep in mind with either of them is that for your large suits they are primarily bubble wrap, or screening units. That isn't to say they can't put out damage- they can- but t...

Re: New army is almost here, now what

@Mirth and @Bloodknife92, thank you both for the wisdom. @Mirth, thanks for the introduction to the tabletop! I loved the Tau in DoW and i'm even MORE excited now. What infantry would you recommend to go along with those beasts? I was thinking of putting some Stealth Suits with the Ghostkeels for ho...

Re: Tau close combat & 8th Edition

I just want Kroot to become decent at it again. In the "Dawn of War" series, the Kroot were a main part of my army. Tank n Spank has always worked, however, i've been watching tabletop games on YouTube where the Kroot basically help distract for a very short amount of time then die. It's ...

New army is almost here, now what

In Tau, we are strong! To set this post up, I am very new to the tabletop of WH40k. I'm learning the rules, i've played a game using my friends Blood Angels just to get my feet wet. I purchased the "Start Collecting! Tau Empire" GW set and have built them all. I have a friend who has speci...

XV8 Battlesuit posing and magnetizing

For the greater good! I began building my XV8 Battlesuits when a friend advised me to stop. He explained that you can really customize the poses of the battlesuits to look how you want it. I have stopped and instead of just throwing a dart at YouTube videos, I would like some guidance from anyone he...

Thank you! So far, this might be the most constructive forum I have come across in a very long time. I get the feeling i'll be enjoying my time here. I'm will say i'm looking for the very best strategies and counter strategies that are available. I never play a game without knowing the counters to o...

Dawn of War made me do it!

Hey everyone! I hate long walks down the beach unless there is a metal band jamming with dolphins shooting lasers to warm the universes largest steak and cheese burrito to heat up for my consumption. :D I used to manage a highly comedic metal band here in the US. Now i'm obsessing over this damn tab...
