Re: 1000pts Tournament List

Thanks. I'll modify a bit the list. Hope all goes well in this tourney. Not aiming for the top but at least I just hope didn't get tabled on turn 2 or 3 itself.

1000pts Tournament List

Hi guys. Need some opinion on this list for an upcoming local tournament. Opponents: (From What I've known so far....could be something entirely different) A few marine players. I think can handle. Nurgle Chaos drone spam (5 drones with a demon prince) Nurgle standard Eldar with Yvvraine, Ycarne, Ni...

Re: Drone Morale

As wonky as it is for our drones to desert en masse (probably a reaction to realizing their sheild generators can't protect them) at least drone casualties no longer cause Riptides to break and run. What about Crisis suits's drone casualties? It will break them. They don't have drone support. And t...

Re: Drone Morale

Commander and crisis doesn't have the 'drone support rule'(..from that point onward, drone treated as separate unit)....so if adding drones (purchase for that commander/crisis unit which is the accompanied drones) to that unit... 1. are the drone models accompanying the crisis considered as a unit w...

RIP shield drones

A moment of silence for these little fellas who always helps our suits and infantry, giving their AI lives to save us while GW mercilessly put them out of use.

Now, anyone out there can think of any other use of these shield drones before they are stored in shelves forever?

Re: Tau 8E match-ups

I've been running a "Super Mantacore" for the past few games, and I have to say, I have felt extremely sorry for all of my opponents thus far (except the ork player....A. I'm Farsight Enclaves and he's an ork AND B. He ran 75 Stormboyz). I have yet to find a match-up that did not fold und...

Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

Taunar towering colossus rule: add in these lines "This model can Fall back in the movement phase and still shoot and/or charge that turn, and does not suffer the penalty for moving and firing Heavy weapon".

I mean common, its a freakin titan. Even Stormsurge has this rule.

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...

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

Vector Strike wrote:Ta'unar can fire any non-Macro weapon at enemies within 1"


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.

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...
