Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

Oh, and following up on my last post... Looks like bombs can target Characters. This won't do much good against most characters since you would need so many bombing runs, but in a situation like I posted before where a Warlock is backing up rangers making them impossible to hit, it may not be a bad ...

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

Agreed. But the text on page 215 heavily implies to me that reserves is a default rule for matched play. Tactical Reserves does not imply anything. It states that units can be put in reserve if they have an ability that lets them do so, and that only 50% of your army can do so, regardless of how ma...

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

Personally, I am a huge fan. They are a cheap platform for removing infantry, and functional at putting wounds on larger models that run in packs, like Vypers or Terminators. Also, one thing to remember is that the bombs are dropped in the movement phase. This means you can see how many models are r...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

I somehow begin to dislike that ion weapons are always the better alternative to anything that's not super specialiced like Fusion Blaster or Flamer. Glad at least the Riptide is an exception by now. :roll: Agreed. I think Burst weapons really need something to distinguish themselves from other wea...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

BY the way, these suckers got a new datasheet from the Index. Seems Forgeworld decided to give us the option of CIBs instead of Burst Cannons on the wing turrets.

Re: Imperium Detachments

It can create some scary scenarios with multiple detachments. Nothing stopping you from taking for example Cadian spearhead detachment with just a commanding and platoon officer and 3 heavyweapon Lascannon teams so can all reroll all hits every turn. A catachan spearhead lemun Russ detachment for r...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Honestly, I really do not know. I took "as if it were your shooting phase" to mean "Treat this as if shooting in your shooting phase". I don't think there are any cases with a rule like this that does not have that phrasing, so I can't think of anything to compare against. Agree...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So I find myself with a question. How does this interact with abilities that let you shoot "as if it is your shooting phase". Would you get to use this Strategem if, for example, a Ynnari Strength From Death triggers and you opt to shoot. Can you then use this Strategem following that out...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

No way you can use Craftworld strategems and traits with Ynnari. They actually said there will be updated Ynnari rules with the repackaging of the three Ynnari heroes. Actually, I am pretty sure you can. At least based on what we have seen so far. The Ynnari keyword does not remove the <Craftworld>...

Re: Imperium Detachments

As above, yes they can. Here is why they lose those bonuses though. When you make a Detachment, you apply a primary keyword to it. Units in that detachment all have to have that keyword. As long as they share it, its kosher. Regiment Doctrines, Chapter Tactics, and other similar special rules are ap...

If you wish to discuss drone tactics then start a new thread or use one of the already existing ones.


Sorry, you are right. Arka, I'll PM you.

StealthKnight, ebay seems the best case. I know there are a few on shapeways as well, but they seem less cost effective.

Re: replacement/alternative Drone disc's

Unfortunately this also makes me "that guy" in my gaming circle due to excessive drones, so beware that. Off topic, but I've been thinking about that issue recently. If someone has 72 Imperial Guard, or 72 Necron Warriors, they'd be an infantry player. If someone has 72 Gun Drones, they'd...

Re: replacement/alternative Drone disc's

A lot of people are selling full drones, as well as some drones on sprue, but the real gems are the bits piles. I spent $100 and got 72 Drone tops, 2 full Recon Drones, 10 Pathfinders, 15 Fire Warriors, and 30 Kroot from one big pile of bits. Unfortunately this also makes me "that guy" in ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

AFAIK Tau is the second selling army GW produces (after Space Marines). My theory why they didn't published our codex: The first big thing in 8th was new Space Marines and new Death Guard. All the story right now circles around these two factions. They pumped all the thing with tons of new models, ...

Re: Need help bringing list from 100% to 75% to make it fun.

Honestly this is a struggle I have been having recently as well. T'au defense is just too high when you start factoring in Drones. So first off, since this a new players tournament, I think your instinct to go easy is correct. If this was a real tournament I would say there is no reason to hold back...

We shouldn't be in CC really anyway but if we get something like that would be nice, Though if 50 conscripts are in CC no amount of saves will help vs 100 lasgun rounds :D I think you quoted the wrong thing. Still, as an order it allows for some tactical flexibility. That is one thing I really like...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The Vostroyan article has some nice info in it.

Looks like they get an order that lets them shoot any weapon in the shooting phase as if they are pistols.
