Re: 1500 points and a whole lot of fun

Moving on to the actual review... The sun shark is a suboptimal choice compared to (say) a minimum firestream wing (though course if that is the model you have then there's not much you can do about it. Maybe dropping a broadside and swapping the sun shark for a drone net might be helpful as you cur...

Re: 1500 pt Tournament list

Cyclic Ion Raker over the Fusion Collider anyday IMO.

Re: 1850pt CAD+Formation

Both very good lists tbh. The first one probably has more killing power but the second will (IMO) be able to play the objective game far better and that could prove key. Given the AP2 on your riptides I do think you'd be better off giving the GKs Ion Raker instead. Also given that the barracuda alre...

Re: Battle of Guella Ridge: A 200p Killteam of Tau against the Tyranids

A really great battle report!
Really loved you bringing it to life (maybe I should start playing kill team!) Do you have any pictures of the scenery, you made it sound really good!

Re: Fifth Sphere Expansion: 8thed Tau Fluff

[1] is a good point, I'd forgotten about any off-earth resources. It does seem like they could put together a fairly large army in a few years, especially if they've stopped repairing civilian infrastructure. I still think that a consistent doubling in industrial output every is unfeasible (but not ...

Re: Fifth Sphere Expansion: 8thed Tau Fluff

True, but I think the limiting factor on growth is as much due to raw materials as to population - a two-fold increase every year would mean a thousand times more resources in 10 years (like the story with the guy who asked for ever increasing numbers of grains of rice on a chessboard): not feasible...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Whether the new expansion deserves the title of 'sphere' in a physical sense depends on how large it has already become and whether it has reached the 'top' and the 'bottom' of the galactic plane yet. Given that the galaxy is about 2,000 light years 'high' I'll leave that to other members to judge, ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I hope that we have some way of making drones BS3 again.

Re: 1850 Tournament List - trying to be fun too!

I don't know if they're modelled like that but IMO ghoskeels are better with the ion weapon than the fusion one. I'm also a little confused how you fit the tidewall rampart in as AFAIK fortification detachments are not a thing. I might consider the gunfort (3 gunrigs) instead as you could have the f...

Re: Advice needed! 2000pt Tournament list

I'd say that you can drop some of the shield drones or swap them for gun drones. Also the gun drones on the stealth teams, while useful, can be dropped. I reckon you should upgrade the suits with burst cannons to CIBs if you can spare the points - they're much better. As a final niggle you appear to...
