Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But the mechanic itself is copypasta from space marines and stimulates “pure” armies. They could do something detatchment-wide rather than army-wide for instance, and then give bonuses based on how varied your army is. But like a page back you were saying you wanted power armored Tau, like Space Ma...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm not sure I understand. They both move 8". The difference would be in the Manta Strike ability. Yeah, what Wes said... Is this an "In your experience" thing? They are a lot more fragile and cant deep strike. And larger suits have 12+ movement. Technically true, but you could never...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'd agree with the Cadre, but why not with etereals? Their bonuses carry to battlesuits now, and a hoverboard means they can move 8" Also, you're probably going to have a few troops that the cadre can boost, and even if you don't... you've got that +2 markerlight. Ethereals have a hard time ke...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

what about cadre fireblade? Forgot about that. I always put darkstrider and fireblades toghether, so I always think they are named characters. But ethereals and fireblades are extremely circumstatial. You don't want to put them in battlesuit lists for instance. I'd agree with the Cadre, but why not...

It would be nice if we had a +1 to hit with Fusion Blades for suites.

I want 1 relic, just one... it was my favorite in 7th, and it's what I want in 8th:

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I don't remember that... There were some Farsight bonuses...? I think? Farsight had a trait that let crisis suits be picked up as troops. PS: Now that I am thinking about it, all of our HQs are named characters with the exception of commanders and ethereals, so with the commander spam "fix&quo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What do they mean by army-wide sept traits? They mean Sept Tactics. The Tau version of Space Marine Chapter Tactics, Guard Regimental Tactics, Eldar Craftworld Tactics, etc. But they said "for the first time ever" We had sept traits in 7e, didn't we? I don't remember that... There were so...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Yeah I just took GW to price their guys based on the style of unit. Gribblys cost around 20-30$ a pack, elites 20-75$, so on and so on. And if they were basing the point value of a unit on the dollar value of the models, I hope someone got fired after they put out the index, as they wiped out people...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ugh... I just remembered how many models I still have to paint. :dead: I think I'm going to melt rats in Vermintide tonight, and get to it... tomorrow... I don't know how you people can find the time to paint almost all your models. I don't count how many models I have left to paint. I count how ma...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm guessing the people who are already unhappy, will remain unhappy.

The people who are already content will remain content.

The people who are already Happy will remain happy.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Given I started this thread, took a few months hiatus from this website, came back and it was still going strong with 100+ pages... feels great for me, but I'm looking forward to it dying so we can have the coming war surrounding whether our codex is good or not.

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

At least one bomber is an auto-take for me when I play. It's good at killing hordes with the bombs, it puts out a good volume of shots, and the -1 to hit serves it well. The only thing they could do to improve it would be to let me have the option to shield it, or add another -1 to hit. Personally l...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Frankly I’m baffled Tau are released March 17th when GW told us we’d get Tau, Necrons and Dark Eldar all in March. Now it looks like they can barely fit two of the three in that timeframe. I don't recall that coming from Games Workshop, I thought that was just rumor, because I only ever heard Tau a...

I thought the preorder period had been 2 weeks so far? Not complaining that it's less than a month away mind, just... that seems odd to me

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm having a lot of trouble with the doom here, because to be blunt: My win-loss isn't that bad. I suspected it'd be worse when I got the index, but it's just... not that bad. 50-50, to 60-40 (Some in my favor, some against) against equally skilled players? Isn't that what you should Hope for?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I definitely agree here. Making Broadsides good is important. However, Broadsides are not battle tanks, they shouldn't cost 200 points. If anything, Hammerheads should be expensive an powerful while Broadsides should be lightweight shooting platforms. The current points cost for the Broadside seems...
