Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

We should probably compare Scout snipers to our current sniper drones. Native bs3+ vs. our 5+ with their armor 2+ in cover with our hard to hit. It's not far off but needing other units to make it more viable plus the fact that we don't get the mortal wound on 6 makes ours slightly less exciting fo...

Re: New Tau player. 100 PL list

I would build the commander as an enforcer with ALL hard points magnetized. The coldstar is fun but don't pack a huge punch. I would use a rail gun on longstrike and 1 ionhead and two railheads or two ionheads and one railhead for the hammerheads, depending on wether you are facing lots of vehicles ...

Re: State of T'au

I have been running a lot of firewarriors, drones, and stealth suits with some crisis and a ghostkeel. All of my lists include longstrike and pathfinders. My record so far has been 10 wins and 4 losses. I lost to eldar, AM, and salamanders. I haven't used any suit larger than a ghostkeel and that se...

Re: A use for sniper drones?

TBH all the drones really need is a 6+ deals a mortal wound.

Re: My Replacement Army

I suggest a locking storage case, I made mine out of layers of foam cut to fit my models, glued to cardboard, inside a large locking tool box. I suggest this because me and my friends have a limited income and I have many young siblings.

Re: First Tau army. need help from veterans

I would magnetize all of the suits, then you can swap the weapons to combat different units.

Re: Photon Grenades -- What's the Point?

Dark Hope wrote:Hitting with even one before charging makes their 6s become 5s, they can't hit you. Perfect for charging a big nasty heavy gun model without having to worry about a d6 shot (or more) landing in overwatch.

Overwatch is resolved at BS 6+ regardless of modifiers

Re: Use crisis model as commander units

Sure they got new molds for crisis suits, but it is still the same "model" for rules purposes. And the new mold looks more dynamic and commander like than the old stiff ones.

Re: Use crisis model as commander units

Yeah and nobody can force you to not use pictures on paper to represent your models. They could refuse to play with you though. So if it's really such a big deal among your friends why fight against it? I say it again, it doesn't matter what we think. It really doesn't. It matters what your gaming ...

Re: SMS vs hidden character

It would be much clearer if it was; you may not target a character under ten wounds, unless it is the closest targetable model.

Using it to represent longstrike makes way more sense than him hanging out of the hatch.

Re: New bits for tau hammerhead

I wonder if we will see entirely new support systems for our tanks in the codex. Or perhaps a tank commander that can take support systems.

Re: Use crisis model as commander units

The first commander model that G dubs released was an xv8 with the two "experimental" weapons. The CIB and air bursting frag projector. Therefore all xv8s are commanders if you pay the points and tell your opponent that is is a commander rather than a crisis suit. However I paint my xv8 co...

Re: looking for advice

If you are planning to take a hammerhead use long strike, he not only hits on 2s but gives a +1 to all other hammerheads within six inches including himself.

New bits for tau hammerhead

G dubs has a sprue of bits for vehicles up for preorder, I wonder if the tau one could grant any abilities?

Re: Rising Star: Cold Star Commander In 8th Edition

I see the FAQ lists close combat weapons as changing, but where does it say that battlesuits carry a close combat weapon? I'm looking through all the battlesuit entries and I have yet to find any close combat weapon they carry that's AP0. I'm not trying to be pedantic :P but I'm trying to find anyt...
