Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Well riptide aren't that bad just cost way too much. A cost reduction was all i really expected, and most likely is all they will get heh. That said i picked up 3 riptide like a month ago since everyone near me was practically giving them away. Last year I picked up 3 Riptides for $60 each (Theyre ...

Either and both. The firepower of both has skyrocketed while the point cost dropped hard. Plus there's two insane stratagems for them.


Did they do anything for Crisis suites?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm not going to rate it because that would be too subjective. All I can tell is that I have a massive tournament coming in two months and I'm dropping my Custodes and Thousand Sons list to play T'au instead. Also buy Riptides and a couple Hammerheads (with Ion Cannons) if you don't have them. Than...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The thing is, tau do have psychers. They are called nicasaar. If GW released them, half our problems would be solved. We would have reliable mortal wounds and anti-psychers. Which, as is pointed out every time someone brings the Nicasaar up, the Tau Hide because they don't want their creepy neighbo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I meant vs the custodes on warhammer live tv Rip tau. I'd actually love to play a custodes army with my Tau. Feels like your best bet would be to be as T'au-ey as humanly possible: Be highly mobile, shoot everything from 30" off, and don't touch melee. The model count is insultingly low, So yo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I hoped for some auxalaries. Even when the Codex is not about kroot it can be some other aux given the fluff, I'd be okay without psykers ever... but maybe anti-psyker tech? Like, Null Zone emitters or a Shadow over the warp projector field. The thing is, tau do have psychers. They are called nicas...

Ok for a Moment I thaught we get something that I did not realise. New in the 8th edition Tau Codex, Psyker Ethereals! Their ftGG attack is Smite! That, is how you cause riots in Games Workshop stores. I hoped for some auxalaries. Even when the Codex is not about kroot it can be some other aux give...

Re: Vespids. The unsung heroes.

I will give these a shot in my next game. I had just not paid them any attention.

Admittedly I'm somewhat tired of my Fast Attack slots being eaten up so fast though.

I feel like half my army is fast attack.

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

I love Stealth Suites. Honestly going to buy another pack myself when I make it up to the GW store next time. My only criticism of them, is my criticism of all suites right now, in that they need a 3+ to hit by default. And then, I think I'd be okay if the Stealth suite retained the 4+ to hit, given...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I would have them be more obscenely powerful :P I agree with the rest I might agree with Missile Pods, but I actually -Really- like Rail Rifles where they are. I always take at least 2 per pathfinder squad. They are just an amazing weapon. I'm pretty sure it's not in vogue to say that... but yeah, ...

Re: Ideas for Sept Traits

I think Tash'var should get laser shotguns into Melee. They are supposed to be awesome with breachers, fought melee armies with them a lot (I can't remember if it was Orks or Nids, but it was one), so... Laser shotgun into Melee. Like, let the pulse blaster count as a pistol or something. I mean th...

Re: The Kroot need an Upgrade

I'd be okay if they kept hounds as the punchy kroot and carnivores as shooty kroot. And I'd be okay if they kept hounds where they were at (I like hounds, I'll bring them as cheap little lawn mower units). But Carnivores just... they need Something. I get the appeal, but their base unit is more expe...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So, imo after playing like 12 games now... Tau suites need +3 to hit. Period. That makes sense to me in fluff and in the game. Gribbly ground pounders having +4 is fine, but our points cost for the crisis suite seems balanced to terminators, but we hit like guardsmen in a suite of power armor obstin...
