Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

I think it's pretty clearly 2. Nowhere does it say it can fire in fight phase. Only that it can fire at models "using non macro weapons" that are within 1". Effectively, every non-macro weapon it has can be used like a pistol. It also has some nasty melee for the fight phase. So it s...

Yeah. Needs more elaboration. Does it mean
1. It can fire FTGG overwatch with non macro weapons even if its in CC with other enemy unit?
2. Does it mean it can fire non macro weapons during fight phase/subphase?

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

What worries me is that; 1. Can Taunar disengage from melee without penalty to shoot? It doesn't have the Fly and Walking battleship? Omg. 2. Can it fire its heavy weapon e.g. fusion eradicators without penalty of -1 to hit? Again no walking battleship but hes a titan isn't he? Gosh. Clarification n...

8th edition battle report Tau vs Ultramarine 50 power ratings

For this edition, tried a more aggressive-suicidal approach to play. Fortunately, pay off quite well so far. Another win for me using this new loadouts vs them marine boys. Kinda like doing power ratings play, its easy to setup, fast to play. Anywayz, lets analyze the list. Supreme Command detachmen...

Re: Riptide overnerf?

Theres a thread "RIP Riptide". Indeed, in 8th edition, RIP riptide. Who makes these Riptide rules for 8th are clearly not Tau players themselves, otherwise they would know what is the true strength of Riptide (riptide wing). Lone Riptide wouldnt make a big punch or put into competitive lis...

Re: Master of War - Kauyon or Mon'tka - Once per game. Period?

Having it one use per game doesnt make sense. Many other factions have hqs with AURAS (not even activated) which straight up gove rerolls to hit. We have a once per turn ability where we cant even move (when Tau is now a mobility focus army). It makes more sense from a consistent design perspective...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-ZO1xD3lg8 Drukhari vs T'au from Tabletop Tactics! Watched it. Full of despair, sadness and loss, very horrible Tau shootings. For shooting heavy faction, we're just only slightly better than Orkz now, with 4+ only and 8th ed inefficient ML mechanics and they have e...

Re: Markerlight shooting and timing

Hmm, I just realised something... Since MLs are no longer consumed, benefit the unit who's firing them and markerlight shots can benefit from other markerlights(this has been gone since 6th I think), if you have a unit with multiple MLs firing at the same target, you'll have to roll them one by one...

Re: RIP riptide

Most are making army list excluding Riptide in 8th edition. To bring one is debatable at best. Used to be something auto-include for competitive match. See all those Batrep which has Riptide in it? Or 2 riptide in glacial geek game? Mediacore performance compare to 7th ed riptide. I still love this ...
