Re: 750 points patrol army

Damn, that's not my intention. Oh well maybe I'll just substitute the stealth suits for fire warriors so my flamers are les effective.

Re: 750 points patrol army

Solid advice again. I love this community! I don't intend to go WAAC on my friend, but I don't want to pull the punches. He is a veteran of other board games (just not a GW player) and he will notice if I used a deliberately bland army. I can see the point on going troop heavy, though. Actually, I w...

750 points patrol army

Hi everyone. After some excellent advice on a previous thread, I'm preparing a smallish patrol army to try with a friend who is starting this game with his necrons. We decided to start this slow before heading to 1000 or 1500 point games. I am a bit above 750 points so I guess I should remove some b...

Re: Asking for advice on purchases

You are absolutely right. Only rifles, carabines and pistols. Oh well, better to learn it now that to do it just after disembarking in a game I guess :) Btw, I only need to assemble now the Pathfinders. I don't feel like I have the needed skill to magnetize them so... What would you do? I was planni...

With some extreme care, a sharp blade and some green stuff to restore the integrity.

Actually I expected it to be worse.

Re: Asking for advice on purchases

FYI Fireblade does nothing to help Breachers anymore. Go with Darkstrider and you can wound t4 on 2+ within 5" of them. Plus then they can run away and shoot again if the get assaulted and survive. Hey, I said IF. :P :o How comes? Doesn't the Fireblade give them an additional shot so 3 each? D...

Re: Asking for advice on purchases

Petty solid advice again. Much appreciated. Given your advice I've let my minis like this. Quad fusion commander, Fireblade and Ethereal. 10 Breachers 2x 5 Fire Teams with marketing Around 20 assorted drones with magnetized load Then I have to decide what to do with the suits. I'm planning to start ...

Re: Asking for advice on purchases

That is some really valuable advice. I cannot thatnk you enough for it. Yeah, I am aware how suboptimal they are. I tried to magnetize them but finally I was too much in a hurry to do it properly. They are not solidly glued, though, so I trust i can just pluck them out and replace them. About the CI...

Asking for advice on purchases

Hi everyone. I'm sorry if this is a recurrent topic but I feel kind of lost right now. I recently started playing Tau and I was planning on getting some more minis for my army as soon as the new edition stabilized. Previously I was playing a kinda classic Farsight Retaliation Cadre + Drone net army ...

XV8 Crisis Loadouts for a starting player

Hi. First of all, sorry if this is not the proper subforum to post this. Please let me know (or move it straight) if I'm in the wrong place... I am starting my Tau force and, while I am aware that the optimal choice for Crisis Suit models is to magnetize them, I feel like I don't have the modelling ...

Re: 1000 points first list

Forgot to check this thread!

Yeah, after trying this I have to agree on maybe dropping the shields on the crisis (crisises?) and although I didn't suffer the Riptide-fleeing thing I reckon you have a point there. Off they go then.

Thank you very much everyone for the awesome advice.

Re: 1000 points first list

Nice hints. You are right on that.

Now I have some model reworking to do :P

Anything else?

1000 points first list

Hi everyone! I am a long time player who recently got back into the whole 40k thing. I got some Tau and I was wondering about the best way to use them. My usual opponents are SM and similar armies (GK, BA, SW...) with the odd exception. At first I thought about making a CAD in order to hace OS troop...
