Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So the Fire Prism may be a good example of what we can expect. Overall they are very similar platforms. Same Toughness, only a difference of 1 wound. Fire Prisms have slightly longer move, but the weapon is shorter range as well. It has a single fire weapon with high Strength, high AP, and d6 Damag...

Re: Longstrike with closed hatch?

I invert the color scheme for my commanders. Helps for them to stand out.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

With this discussion of overwatch, something occurred to me. I tend to run my Flamer XV8s with their drones in front, to soak charges, but... it's easy for a clever opponent to charge your Gun Drones from ~7" away, meaning the XV8s are out of range due to the size of the Gun Drone bases. Could...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Sure we have tools to protect from combat and stuff. But Overwatch isn’t that great. I don’t count on many kills from it. And screening units are fine. But I still prefer distance over a screening unit of drones. Make them come to me. And they can always just shoot the screen first. A 3 man Crisis t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Sure we can bait a charge. But do you really want the assault terminators charging your Flamer Crisis team. Overwatch will do next to nothing and you’ll most likely loose the entire team. Or if you drop within Melta of a Ork Trukk. Bust it open just to have the Boyz bust ya ‘eds in combat. Let’s sa...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ok, so basically its all about avoiding close combat. So my question is..... why? Doesn't that completely invalidate the one army wide special ability we have? Sure we only hit on 6s, but we can put out a lot of shots using For The Greater Good from multiple units. Also, if you are really that worr...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

JSJ allowed us to move, shoot at something and then jump back either behind cover or out of line of sight. With short range weapons especially, that was a pretty critical thing. Not to be obtuse, but why is this critical in 8th? Most cover doesn't work unless you are Infantry, and being out of LOS ...

Re: markerlights helping own unit

I roll 1 at a time until I get my first hit. Then I usually roll the rest, as the first hit is all that matters, unless my pathfinders moved. Then I roll 2 at a time until I have 3 hits. Then you can roll the rest.

Re: Tau objective markers

Here is what I got. Mobile shield gen. Gun rack. Pile of guns. Ion tower. Power core. And ammo crates. http://i.imgur.com/mBf6u8c.jpg Odd, I can't seem to place the big, round, flat bit of tech with the Tau logo on it on your right most token. Where is it from? It is part of the Stormsurge’s Pulse ...

Re: Tau objective markers

Thanks! I also like the idea of using tokens or the like for command points. I currently use dice, but may look into something of that nature.

Re: Tau objective markers

There are objective markers for different factions in CA. The ones I’ve seen are mostly spare bits I think, but I was wanting some examples. You can see under match play the objective markers. http://i.imgur.com/PGsF9WW.jpg Ive looked through my bits and came up with these for some. A weapon pile an...

Tau objective markers

My local store didn’t get their shipment of chapter approved today. Does anyone have a pic of the Tau objective markers. I was real excited to see the examples they have.
