How do you actually deal with AV14 ?

Hi all! There are lots and lots heavy armored vehicles in my meta, ork wagons, land raiders, necron monoliths, leman russes ... As HRR are S8 i really struggle with opening AV14 metal boxes. At a 1500 points game having 2 railsides and a riptide I almost never succeed opening them during turn 1. And...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

Oops, you are right. Haven't played tau yet, last time I played 5ed blood angels. Sure, they are easy victory points, but they are great for small format games, and the Sniper Drone Team can be easily enlarged with up to 2 marksmen and/or up to 6 sniper drones for extra wounds. I think this build is...

Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

I somehow came to this scheme and thought that it is extremely point effective. It's like 50+24+58 = 132 points. You get 3 marker lights at BS5 from drone controller, 2 of which have target lock. You get a majority toughness of 4 and a stealth, so they are twice more survivable than pathfinders. And...
