I am hoping that your newfound chatyness is due to an impending announcement.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I don't understand what's so crazy to believe about a guy who has two months to build and paint armies that already have codexes and miniatures out... And T'au is my very first army anyway, so the collection is already there and ready. I've always been interestd in TS so I'm building that as my sec...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

For Rail weapons, it would be interesting if they had an "Always hits on a 3+". They have similar language for wounds on some weapons. Always wounding would also be another interesting variant of the rule.

Re: Rules and helper parts for playing apocalypse

I gotta agree with Redshirt. Apocalypse is structured as an event. CA is pretty clear about that. There is nothing wrong with Apoc as written. If you want to do massive games at 28mm you can use the NetEpic rules with some scale adjustments and the formation bases like you are suggesting, and it sho...

Re: Cadre Fireblades with Honour Blades

I am also pretty sure this is a Talissera (bonding knife). And if you think about weaponizing it you should ask yourself if a christian would use his cross as blunt weapon. Vampire movies tell me the proper weaponization is as a stake. From a rules perspective, the only issue I see is that honor bl...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I may be the voice of dissent on this, but I am happy they are planning to address a very obvious issue with our index in Commander spam. It never felt like a good way to play for me. You aren't alone. I do not like how unfluffy Commander spam is. The worry is that we will get hard nerfed in Comman...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

There is a second talking point; The Codex will focus mainly on T'au, not the kroot. If you couple that with Lady whatsherfaces comments, possible Kroot Mercs/Demiurg/Member Races codex/suppliment further down the line? This. I imagine its gonna happen. Also, I wonder if they will shake up the unit...

Oh man good call. A forward sitting Broadside, Riptide or Anti Infantry Ghostkeel with EWO could end up getting multiple rounds of shooting. That could be devastating.

Since I am totally excited about this, I will throw a $15 GW gift certificate into the pot as a reward for whoever gets the most points. Just enough for a pair of drones. That's mighty generous of you. I just did this as a bragging rights type thing for fun. But if the mods are happy with you doing...

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Perhaps instead of ignore damage ability just IDA? We already have so many other contractions for rules(FTGG for for the greater good among others) and wargear(CIB,BC, DBBC, PR, RR) that it almost makes sense Need to be careful with that, since you end up with an acronym without a reference point. ...

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Kind of a tangent, but I propose we call these kinds of abilities "Damage Saves" as opposed to FnP. I feel like that is easier to understand for people new to the game. I agree that a term is needed. However, calling them "saves" might not help since things that ignore saves do ...

Re: Fighting Genestealer Cults

I don't have experience with fighting GSC, but I do have experience fighting lots and lots of Striking Scorpions. They have a similar first turn charge scenario. What I have found works really well is MSU Strike Teams with 2 Shields each, as well as a couple MSU Pathfinders with 2 Shields and a Grav...

Re: Options against Heavy Infantry

Anyone have numbers on the Sunshark or Barracuda? That would be my go-to as an air-cav player. Thinking an Ion Barracuda would do a number on heavy infantry.

If you wanna drop lots of Seekers than Remora Drones seem like a potential choice.

TX7 Heavy Bombardment Hammerheads might do pretty decent.
