Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Bright side to it being March:
-Units get tuned twice, hopefully correctly
-Tau have had some of the longest to think about Sept rule for (followed by necrons maybe)

Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

I'm curious what the judgement behind the Drone squad loadouts is?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

December is going to be a triple release of the Blood Angels / Dark Angels / Space wolves.

I'm 85% sure

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

I might try and proxy this in the future, but for the time being I don't have any HYMP Broadsides. If, in the new Codex, HRR Broadsides suddenly become viable, I'll definitely be adding some. I love Broadsides, and I'm pretty sad that they're so non-viable right now. I've been pondering over taking...

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

Since you are playing an Ethereal (Aun'va in this case) have you considered playing XV88s to take advantage of Evocation of the Elemnts? With 2 QFB you can probably afford to equip it/them with HYMP/ATS which is pretty disgusting as a first turn alpha strike (Kauyon/Tides/Stone) and the SMS are real...

Re: Tau Power level abuse 100PL

Correct. With the assumption that 1 PL = 20 pts, 1 PL of gun drones is 16 points, now 1 PL of ML drones is 20 pts

Re: Tau Power level abuse 100PL

sorry, I was combining 2 schools of thoughts: The points you are referencing is what I was thinking of, I mistakenly thought the PR was cheaper b/c its so cheap in 8th. Then I was referencing a point cost in weapon loadouts between XV8 and commander b/c it was done in the IG book for veteran squads ...

Re: Tau Power level abuse 100PL

CIB vs MP is a very interesting points comparison: For the extra points you get 9" of range for a comparable weapon. Now they probably nit-picked on the points as a index re-balance, I could see them reverting back to previous editions where you had BC, FL, PR, AFP 5 points each and FB, MP, CIB...

Re: Tau Power level abuse 100PL

This is why hate doing PL with Tau. If I want to take something reasonable I get penalized for it b/c the top end of the unit is so high (9pt Flamer vs 28pt MP x3)

You know, unless they include necrons in that lineup and now we got some 'Ancient Being' shenanigans going on.

Re: 2000 pts Balanced and no cheese

http://www.tfgradio.com/tactics/tommys-tau-talk-3-current-meta-lists-pre-codex/ This talks about the 'No Mercy (tournament)' list. What I actually did was convert this to a 100 PL list since that is what my game group uses most of the time. To go even further off the rails I made it a Battalion Deta...

Re: 2000 pts Balanced and no cheese

Seeing the 'No Mercy' list also kind of validated my approach to successful list building. Now I'm trying to get some long range firepower in w/out resorting to a Stormsurge (b/c I don't own one) and now locking myself into the T'au sept with Darkstrider or Longstrike

Re: 2000 pts Balanced and no cheese

I'm taking a page out of the 'No Mercy' list and trying to better balance and define the Gunline and Advance guard. The only real addition I've tried to make is some Railsides. QFBs are much more efficient but I think I may rather have just 1, which would then mean consolidating FW units and loosing...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

I heard an interesting thing from BoLS today: in the new AM codex Plasma guns cost different if you are a BS3+ or 4+ model.

I could see that happening to Fusion Blasters for us. either cost goes up for COs, or cost goes down for everything else.
