Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

Maybe going ATSs on the CIB suits - also freeing up some points?

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

I know very little about tzeentch daemons so I'll restrict myself to general observations: Splitting the 11 drone squas up into one of 5 and one of 6 will make morale much less painful. Avoid a quad burst cannon commander Daemons' lack of armour and their invuln saves might change this, but an ATS w...

Re: 2000pts Mechanised - Much to Improve!

Ah but doing this all but guarantees that the pathfinders will be shot at and targeted turn one/two as they are the only soft targets on the board and are my only large maekerlight source - I think it makes them far too tempting a target.

2000pts Mechanised - Much to Improve!

Hi everyone, As opposed to the list last week which was a style I'm fairly confident with, this one (more mechanised and agressive) is a bit more of a stab in the dark. The overall strategy is that the list will move up towards the enemy (preferably one of his flanks), and the battlesuits will drop ...

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

I'm leaning toward the Stealthsuits too. However, I really don't want to drop the Rail Rifles, since I really love those weapons. Here's another way to add Stealthsuits that would preserve the Rail Rifles, that I thought of just now: - 6x Gun Drones (-48) + 3x Stealthsuits w/ 3x Burst Cannons; Homi...

Re: 1500 list vs Thousand Sons

Thanks for the feedback! Having looked at the numbers for the barracuda vs CIB XV8s, as well as how easy it would be for Magnus to take out fliers in melee, I'm switching it out for some battlesuits. - Barracuda (299pts) +3 XV8 w/ 2CIB, ATS, 6 Gun Drones (306) I've also switched the main weapon on L...

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

Personally, given your two fusion commanders, I would go for the stealth suits option.
On another note, how has Longstrike done? His output is good, but as the only tank/MC in your list I would think he would get taken down quite quickly by all your opponent's anti-tank weapons.

1500 list vs Thousand Sons

Hi all, I've got a game coming up against a friend of mine who is trying out Thousand Sons coming up soon. He's fairly new so I've decided not to go overboard on units like Quad Fusion Commanders, but I'm not too confident in my ability to stop Magnus before he does major damage. Here it goes! Batta...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

I thin'k you'd be better off dropping shadowsun, adding a cadre fireblade and bulking up the fire warrior squads. That way your infantry can axtually pose a real threat.

Drop the stim injector on the ghostkeel and give your stealth suits a drone controller - you will find the +1 BS invaluable.

Re: Local tournament winning list

Interesting list. What was the set-up of the infantry and the devilfish - were the pathfinders in the devilfish or was a mix of pathfinders/ Strike Team/ Cadre Fireblade?

Re: Fireblade's volley fire with drones

It's possible that two enemy units are equally close if part of your drone unit is closer to Enemy Unit 1 and another part is closer to Enemy Unit 2 (although this is admittedly quite a self-serving interpretation).

Re: DeathMantaCore (2000pts)

Seems very strong, can't really fault much - except that you maybe have too many drone controllers. If you play a game with it, let us know!

Re: Competitive 2K Enclaves - FLGS Tourney

From a Mathhammer point of view, 3 CIB are more effective points-wise than 2 CIB+ATS for anything but a 2+ save - I'd recommend trying to scrounge some points for that, maybe dropping the shield drones on the stealth suits?
