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?

How much of your damage was the drones and how much were the other units?

Re: 8th Edition Tau vs. Death Guard (1000)

Given that the new orca has a massive transport capacity (easily 6-7 normal sized units) it appears we now have a new mechanism for getting first turn - if your group accept FW stuff, of course.

Help me fill out my 2000pt List!

Here it a list I have come up with after my first few battles, composed of a Battalion and an Outrider detachment: Battalion: HQ: Cadre Fireblade (42) Commander, 4 Fusion Blasters (160) Commander, 4 Fusion Blasters (160) Troops: 10 Fire Warriors (Shas'ui) (80) 10 Fire Warriors (Shas'ui) (80) 10 Fire...

Re: Riptide overnerf?

I'm actually quite encouraged by the new edition, or at the very least other armies have been nerfed more than we have. My two battles in 8th edition have been against Eldar/Ynnari and we do far better against them than we did before.

Re: new as new can be 1850 list, please help a newbie out

Seems good, except that you've got 5 HQs when you're only allowed 3 in a Battalion. You should go 3 in a Supreme Command detachement and 2 in your normal Battalion.

Re: new as new can be 1850 list, please help a newbie out

1. Fair enough, depends on your local meta 2. There are two points here. Firstly, it is a wound saved, NOT one damage. This means a single drone can take a lascannon wound, say, that could cripple a riptide or tank, or wipe out a commander- making the extra 8-10 points worth it. Secondly, gun drones...

Re: Fish of Drone Fury?

It's not 7 units, it's 3 because a vehicle (with any number of units in it) only counts as a single drop.

Re: Commanders and XV8s - What loadouts will you bring in 8th Edition?

Yeah against 1 wound models the standard version is definitely better. The overcharged version, IMO, works better against: 2 wounds models, particularly T4 (e.g. Primaris Marines) and T7/8 multiwound models (e.g. basically all vehicles)

Re: new as new can be 1850 list, please help a newbie out

Drones are definitely, utterly, 100% worth it. They put out easily the most efficient shooting and their saviour protocols are really good. I'd say take 6 on the Crisis suits, and see if you can fit in a pulse-accelerator drone on the pathfinders - with it you'd have the start of a decent gunline to...
