8th edition First 1000pt kauyon list

It's funny, but I have never played since the 5th edition with the bloody angels. The only box that I have is Start Collecting, I plan to take the Pathfinder and two broadsides boxes, because I truly love the look of HRR. I do not have enough budget for a commader box, so i'll be running a crisis as...

Re: New 8th FAQ

Isn't anyone happy with the change to broadside missile drones? Like, that was exactly what I asked them for on a facebook page, and with a quick response here comes the FAQ. With a sync change to the shield drones taking 3 missile drones and shield drone for 2 broadsides, or 4 missiles and 2 shiel...

Re: Let's Contact GW!

I think we have to do it one by one, pick a question, that bothers you the most, then write it to them. I think we'll be more successful if everyone from this thread just posted a single, most important thing for him, like markerlights, it's much more effective than saying you are representing a com...

Re: Let's Contact GW!

Here's a draft of what I'm planning to send from us to GW. This message comes from the users of the forum Advanced Tau Tactica, where hundreds [edit: thousands?] of active users discuss competitive Tau tactics and list-building. We enjoy 8th Edition very much but feel that there are some important ...

Re: Let's Contact GW!

Oh my god, it works, it works! :biggrin: I find it inaccurate, that we can include up to 2 additional XV88 Broadsides in unit, making it a 1-3 choice, but we can only include 2 MV8 missile drones per unit, whether it's 1 or 3 broadsides. Wouldn't it be better, if we could take 2 MV8 missile drones p...

Re: Let's Contact GW!

There's an email to write to. I've asked about MV8 Missile Drones, they are 2 per unit, not 2 per broadside suit, like with crisis suits, so in order to take 6 Drones we have to take 3 broadsides suits, resulting in 3 deployment/FOC choices and 6 killpoints. It'seems fine with ITC rules, but my loca...

Re: Markerlight sources and their accuracy

I actually think that in days of eight we have to screw that troop choice and go mass Pathfinders. 3x10 of them are just 240 points, they are good at holding and taking objectives and are a guaranteed 5 marker hits turn one, two and three. You can leave a single unit at your deployment, fire 5-6 men...

Re: Pathfinders, the unsung heroes.

Have anyone tried an "Optimised Pathfinder Team" (the box of pathfinders with a devilfish) ? :D I have an idea of sticking two 6 men squads, 3 rail rifles each in a cheapest devilfish, +- recon drone. They may be flimsy, but the punch seems awesome. They pack 12 rail shots at 15" rang...

Re: XV88 Broadsides in 8th ?

Stormsurge with PBC, BCs, EWO, ATS. Considering his 6" he will mostly fire at 20-30 range. T7 Sv3+ target in 30" PBC = 6*0.67(bs3+)*0.67(t7)*0.5(4+) = 1.34 wounds BCs = can't even shoot CR = 14 (avg4d6)*0.67(bs3+)*0.33(t7)*0.5(4+) = 1.5 wounds. total = 2.84 wounds So at a large distance i...

Re: Tuesday Night Fight: T’au vs. Orks (Frontlinegaming.org)

Still, you can't disagree that it is overpriced. A lascannon is 25 points, two of them are 53 and why do that silly HRR costs 63. A predator at about 200 points has 4 lascannons hitting on 3+ and does much more damage, considering you can take only a single broadside or a hammerhead at that point co...

Re: Tuesday Night Fight: T’au vs. Orks (Frontlinegaming.org)

This clearly looks like an excuse. Hey, I'm Reece from the GW, I promised it would be cool, well, look. AnonAmbient in the same direction, it seems to me there are GW spies in our ranks. Subjectively - all's gone. Neither T5 nor flamethrowers justify the loss of JSJ. Ghostkeel has -1 in 12 ", b...

Re: Warlord Traits

Could we make Longstrike our warlord and give him 6+ FnP ? :biggrin:
Cause there's no stims for him and Ethereal's FnP only works on infantry and battlesuits

Can you add a column for coldstar commander +/- ATS? I will do it, probably I'll dedicate it a bit more time during the weekend. So far I planned on adding: - Vespids - Skyray - Coldstar Commander - 2x/3x/... units of Drones/FW with the Fireblade/Drone Controller buff - ...? Feel free to suggest an...

Re: Markerlight Discussion

Do we get another +1 BS for 6th markerlight hit? It states 5+, so it's not that clear, whether 6,7, 8... hits have no effect, or every subsequent hit gives a +1 BS bonus. :-?

Re: XV88 Broadsides in 8th ?

Personally I'd say Crisis are better than broadsides and have much more versatility and movement. Actually, it's sad, that our only hope are crisis counts-as-commanders and Supreme Command Detachments full of 5 commanders. According to AenariIT's mathhammer tables the points per wound are for Mpods...

Simple questions about 8th Drones.

So I have a pair of questions about drones: 1. Do they get +1 cover save bonus, for interfering unit, if hiding behind battlesuits? 2. How do they save 2 wounds with 3 damage each ? Can we pass a 3 damage on a battlesuit and 3 damage on a drone, or do we have to take 5 damage to a battlesuit and onl...
