Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

For me it's a time commitment thing. MWG is nice because they are fast with their editing. Tabletop tactics could use quite a bit of trimming imho to bring their videos to be under 1 hour at least! When I used to do Warhammer Fantasy battle reports I would try to keep it under 15 mins. People get b...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

Eh, not interested if it's that guy. He is not entertaining and doesn't know a thing about playing T'au. I'd rather spend my time otherwise. I've watched it. Some interesting points: - Didn't put his Pathfinders into cover - Moved them during the game, leaving them exposed (lucky him the SM player ...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

Miniwargaming did T'au finally. Warning it's not Matt but the Cullen guy who doesn't really seem to know how to play. It's a bit harsh but that's what it looks like.

Re: RIP shield drones

No, they can't. Bodyguards have the same rule as Drones with the exception it works only for characters and they have to roll a dice before and on a 1 they fail the test to intercept the wound. Drones are in this case the better bodyguards. And that they lose a Mortal wound for each wound the guard...

Re: New 8th FAQ

From the Tau40k reddit: Searched the Facebook Post for the shield drone change, someone pointed out it made them pointless and the pages response was. Question: "What benefit does a Tau Shield Drone offer now over a Gun Drone? If every Saviour Protocol always destroys the drone regardless of we...

Re: New 8th FAQ

I'm new to the FAQ business. Do they normally make functional rule changes in this rather than clarifications and corrections?

Re: New 8th FAQ

The visuals of the new saviour protocol are quite comical. An imperial guard heavy weapons team fires a lascannon at the commander. His crisis can't take this. A courageous little helper valiantly throws itself in front of the beam, its shield generator its only weapon in the struggle for the greate...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I really hope that commentator is just a low level drone. T'au being the next static defence army goes exactly against the fluff.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Of the battle reports I've seen so far Tau have lost one and won one. Both has rules mistakes but they were on both sides. The one they lost was bizarre. Commander had a airbursting fragmentation launcher and a fusion blaster. One unit of strikers and one of breachers which were positioned way out o...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I feel an odd perspective on people complaining about the changes to the Tau. I'm both a new and old player. I got into the Tau in 4th edition as just a lad who like how they looked. My friends and i played some half-legal form of the game for a while and then dropped it. I recently got back into, a...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

Miniwargaming T'au vs Dark Angels full battle report Some rules mistakes and weird loadout choices but did give a general impression of how 8th ed Tau might be. Glacial Geek T'au vs Dark Angels full battle report Much more conventional list this one. Super suit heavy. Did mess up the overwatch rule...

Re: The run to 8th edition

I admit I'm still trying to rap my head around getting into combat in 8th. Also I'm not entirely sure if our guys are worth screening, they're pretty cheap and at least soak up a turn of assault. Napoleonic war styles of firewarriors could be amusing I guess. But very much not in the flavour of the ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

While it isn't the glory that was JSJ i think some people are underestimating the utility of leaving combat and shooting. Watched a few battle reports and it clear that crisis are quite a bit tankier than they used to be, especially with drones. If you take gun drones along you can force the enemy i...

1500pt Tournament Attempt (7th edition)

Hi all I'm considering entering into a tournament for the first time. I fully expect to get stomped by riptide wings, scatter bikes and death stars as all are very prevalent in my local competitive meta. But I wanna do as best I can and have fun. So this is the list I've tinkered up. Bear in mind th...

Re: 1000 pts casual

I'm going up against a space marine list tomorrow and am wondering how to tweak my list. Got this going so far: ++ Formation Detachment (Tau Empire: Codex (2015)) [224pts] ++ + Formation + Drone-Net VX1-0 [224pts] . Drones: 4x MV7 Marker Drone . Drones: 4x MV7 Marker Drone . Drones: 4x MV7 Marker Dr...

Re: 1000 pts casual

Yeah, i was thinking if i had unavoidable AV14. Sides and rear are definite the target. It's got the shadowsun to get them out of awkward places they might need to get in to reach that weak spot.

Re: 1000 pts casual

My only real out for AV 14 is to glance it to death. Cyclic ions can serve as additional glance sources in a pinch. No not really. You can only barely glance AV13 with S7. Unless of course you meant to overload your every Ion weapon in your list lol Yep! I'm not saying it's good but there's a chanc...
