Re: Velocity Tracker Stacking

The only reason why VT is getting talked about in this manner is because the wording is likely incorrect. If it is MODEL, instead of UNIT, then this thread will be moot since you cannot benefit twice from support systems on a model(I.E. two ATS will not give me -2 AP). Is it possible to run a crisi...

If magnets were wargear then Crisis would be even more absurdly over costed.

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

Tetras are supposed to be mobile pathfinder platforms, so even though it seems silly that a "high intensity" marker-light provides three tokens if it hits, it guarantees that foot slogging pathfinders can move and shoot without penalty ... so in a way it does sorta make sense.

Re: Tau Combos in 8th edition

So, while it is clear that any rule requiring the unit to "not move for any reason" cannot be applied to a team arriving via manta strike, can't you still make an "advance" during the shooting phase to get inside the 9" bubble for Melta since FBs are Assault weapons?

Re: The run to 8th edition

Do my eyes deceive me, or do Aun'Va's Honor Guard, who lack ranged weapons, really have a better Ballistic Skill than most the things in the Tau army that can actually shoot?

I feel trolled.

Re: List building and commander loadout. Need advice.

I would strongly urge, advise and recommend that you magnetize your suits (at very least the Commander) for numerous reasons, not the least of which is the rumor that weapon profiles will be changing in 8th edition and it breaks my heart to think that a lovingly painted model will have to have its a...

Re: Feel no pain and how to overcome it

It is true that the Riptide's Nova Charged Ion Accelerator will get the job done, but the Stormsurge is the "optimal" choice for the points. While the Nova Charged Ion Accelerator can fire a Str9 Ap2 Large Blast at 72" it also gets hot, which can suck rolling 1's against a 20 man squa...

Re: (BFG) Farsight/Tau fleet - The Vi'oeki (Red Ocean)

Any chance of laying eyes on the elusive Shi'Oni class transports that Commander Farsight used to enter the contested atmosphere of Mu'Gulath Bay during warzone Damocles?

Re: Farsight Enclaves - A Codex: Tau Empire Supplement (Question)

Also, as a point of note, the digital revision to Mont'ka allows FSE to take Sig Systems from the TE book in addition to Sig Systems in Mont'ka.

Go Go Fusion Blade + Talisman + CCN + PEN Chip + Irridium Armor (XV8-02) Commander

Re: XV8 Crisis Loadouts for a starting player

I like running a Farsight CAD and a RetCadre so I can field two Monats as troops running 2x Missile pods and Target lock. I give them 2x Marker drones each and park them in my back-field to hold objectives. MLs and Missiles have the same range so the Monats can put out S7 wounds from a safe distance...

Re: No Formations, Pathfinders or Drones?

II'll see if I can find another piranha to have it "function as" a tetra to supplement the one I've already got. Go to an Eldar friend, borrow as many jetbikes as you can, and fill the board with count-as tetras. While I would not support a flood of "counts as" models (the dimen...

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

The synergy is indeed clever, as the marker drones can benefit from the marksman's Drone Controller and BS5, while the Sniper Drones will benefit from the Ethereal's "Storm of Fire" but it is cheaper to just add Marksmen to the Sniper Drone Team and the Ethereal doesn't have to join the un...
