Re: New Codexes announced

I can somewhat understand putting specific generals in specific septs, so as to prevent you from taking Farsight with Shadowsun, with Longstrike tbh. It doesn't stop that though, it only stops them buffing each other. I wasn't as specific as I needed to be, but that's what I meant: it stops them fr...

Upcoming T'au Codex

So what is everyone hoping will come in the new T'au codex? We've got Stratagems, warlord traits, etc. Potentially even new models?

What does everyone think?

Re: FAQ UPDATE: ATS now a must include on Suits?

This is great. So Tau suites don't really hit Often in CC, but if they have an ATS, they rip a hole in the chest of an Ork.

This.

I'd literally, the night before, primed 4 shield drones, and was scouring my sproos for more.

Re: New Codexes announced

Hell Yeah Seriously, been checking WHC every day for this. My Day, is Made. Edit: Okay, so Unique Stratagems: I figured we might get some formations or something akin to formations for CP cost (Still kind of wondering if Relics will cost CPs) but... could stratagems be our new Formations?

Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you DO like

I've played 2...3... games since 8th dropped, so this is my opinion at time of writing. I Really really like how things have been streamlined. Hit rolls, wound rolls, psychic rolls, just... overall it's so much faster now, to me. I would likewise say I like, but also dislike the wound allocation bei...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

So, looked at it this weekend, Crisis suites are balanced point wise to Terminators? Would anyone disagree with that?

Re: Breachers are still good

It would depends on what profile you want to use though. :P Not really... It's moot. Yes really, since it's 3 different profiles. Anyway, yes it's moot hence why i wrote "would" not "does". ;) ... It's moot, because you can't use a cadre to boost the shot number for the breacher...

Holy hell you make it way more complicated than it needs to be. Look, if you simply want to disagree for the sake of it then do so. Not that I care much since I won't base my lists around Gun Drones anyway. :D And yes, you did say the drones being at 9", because they Have to be at half range t...

Re: Pulse Carbines almost useless

Well technically it only needs 7 unbuffed Drones to take a wound from a T4 Sv2+ unit. That's just 56 points. With a Markerlight it would need about 6 Drones. With a nearby Drone Controller it would need about 5 Drones. With a Markerlight and a Drone Controller it would need about 4 Drones. With 5 M...

Re: Breachers are still good

Vespid can't get a transport though they can DS but their guns don't get extra shots at half range from volleyfire. Maybe on points per range and whatnot but I still find my can of breachers a very very scary tool that I unleash on people and they extra str is useful on tough infantry/bikes which i...

Re: Pulse Carbines almost useless

Gun Drones are situationally better than Fire Warriors. They have too many shortcomings, I think, for them being called unilaterally better. In particular they lack range, leadership, buffing potential, free target selection, and they're a fast attack choice not a troops choice. If Gun Drones were ...

Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you don't like

I mean, thing 1, that I think everyone should go write on GW's Facebook, like right now: in gold letters, is the markerlight table. 5 markers to get that +1 BS is just awful. I'd much prefer it be 3 markers. The fact that BS 3+ is so common, just makes it a pain that the shootiest army in the game, ...

I don't think anybody here doubts a Gun Drone is better than a Firewarrior. Also, for your record, Gun Drones and Firewarrior are also better than a Pathfinder with Carbine. :roll: Gun Drones are situationally better than Fire Warriors.

I have 2 squads I can convert between breacher and strike team, and have always enjoyed using Breachers

Re: Danger Close Support

See, I don't like what they did with this weapon. I wish they had gone with the profile the Flechette pod has, and made it pistol instead of assault. That could be really useful. I would at least be interested enough to test that out, because you could either flyback and fire when they are charging ...
