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...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

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...

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.

Re: Orca rush

I used an Orca strike recently in a game against Craftworld Aeldari. I called it my Battalion in a Box. It was a 100 PL game, and this lost comes in at 101 PL.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Yeah if I was playing against Tau I'd target all the shield drones with mortars first, if anything needs a point increase its AM heavy weapons teams for less cost than 1 RR Pathfinder you can get3 mortar teams hitting 3D6 Str 4 hits out of LOS within 48"!! Not a massive amount of damage but us...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

8 plasma guns if they are close range is 16 shots 11 hits 9 wounds, if they overcharge you would need 7 drones to tank all the wounds as would get no save. Or even your normal Commander usually has 2 drones if 100 conscripts shoot at long range it'll still be 33 hits 11 wounds usually 3-4 failed sa...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

Except they have twice as many wounds so they're not really more squishy and with that movement speed you can be a lot of places you can't deep strike. Like I said. I admit they're not as powerful or efficient as our crisis or commander suits but I don't think they're a complete write off. I used t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Nah, as T'au player I'm the last one who gets scared from that order. Nobody has as many cheap bodyguards as we have and our Commander also aren't the kind of HQ that sticks around for long to buff surrounding units. Maybe a Fireblade would've to worry, but really...a Fireblade is cheap and has usu...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

That's doesn't count towards how weapons are priced though. That's something for how the chassis should be priced. But I agree that a lot of our weapons are too expensive as well on top of the chassis often being too expensive. I'm expecting a price drop on a good amount of our weapons and chassis ...

Re: Matchup against Aeldari

Well making sure there is enough line of sight blocking terrain may be a good thing to look into. Long range shooting out of bikes or wave serpents should do fine against Tau. Some wraithguard hidden and waiting for closer range suits should work well too. Trying to form a gun line to fight you is ...
