Fire warrior pulse pistols?

With 8th ed coming out soon there was something in the shooting rules that caught my eye. In close combat you can use pistols. If fire warriors have pistols, pulse pistols have strength 5 ap5, then would fire warriors be better in close combat? And there was a section that stated that units may fire...

Re: Why are Gun Lines so damm effective???

'cause people don't tend to set up proper amounts of terrain. ;) This! Imagine how effective your gun line would be on an infinity table. Agreed, an open table is every tau players dream. I recently played on a table with the proper amount of terrain, not only is it a pain for vehicles but the 30&q...

Re: Why are Gun Lines so damm effective???

Our ranged weapons are so good to compensate for our lack of close combat abilities. If the nids had managed to outflank you and get up close and personal with your gun line, you would be the one with a nervous breakdown. I can recall many times when I let the enemy get too close, it is very frustra...

Re: Firing arc for Seeker Missiles on Sunshark/Razorshark

I have always thought that seeker missiles launched forward and then looped back or to the side to wherever the marker light was.

Re: Crisis suits with three of the same weapon

Personally, I have a unit of 3 crisis suits that each have a twin linked missile pod and a plasma rifle. These weapons let me glance most vehicles to death and when I can't avoid closer ranges the plasma rifle has rapid fire giving me 2 twin linked missile pod shots and two plasma rifle shots. The h...

Re: I need advice on a army, I am new to warhammer and even if tau is not the best for new players, I will be playing ta

As a beginner I would avoid the forgeworld models, they need a special book sold separately from the tau codex. The tau Start Collecting box set is a super great value for the money and you can play small point games right away. Starting with that many models, special rules, and high point value is ...

Re: I need advice on a army, I am new to warhammer and even if tau is not the best for new players, I will be playing ta

First step is to decide how you are planning to organize this army. An Unbound army is simply a collection of models that are from the same faction, in your case tau. A combined arms detachment is built using the format in the basic rule book. A faction specific detachment is from the tau codex, lik...

I am trying to keep this list somewhat friendly without too much cheese. This is almost my entire collection, i would like sugge...

Re: MNGamer

Very cool, ATT seems like it has a lot of great content. My tau language question is if the sept names have meaning or are just names?
