Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

A lot of tournaments follow ETC rules or have very similar rules. For example, max 3 detachments, no detachment duplicating, no Forgeworld, no understrenght units and so on. But you are right, if there is no rule for detachment duplicating, you could go all out and take just Commanders and Drones. :...

Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

I believe (and we had that discussion on another topic on this forum) that going with more shots is overall better because ATS is slightly better only in some cases. More weapons give more flexibility (my opinion). For example, you gonna face a Chaos Daemon list with tons of Horrors and army wide in...

Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

Well Gun Drones for the pew pew, Shield Drones for the 4+ invulnerable save and 5+ FNP, 1 Marker Drone for 1 marker light. It's much easier if you have 1 Marker Drone per unit instead of a whole unit of Marker Drones, you don't have to split the fire, so if you miss with the marker, you can still us...

2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

I've been reading, watching and experimenting a lot. This is, I believe, the current meta list. Main goal is to win tournaments. It's complete cheese and spam. List is open for discussion of course. OUTRIDER DETACHMENT -HQ- Commander, 3x Missile Pod, 1x Drone Controller Commander, 3x Missile Pod, 1x...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

Those Multitracker on the Fusion Commanders seems like a complete waste. Rather take another Fusion Blaster or if you want to stick with 3 weapons, take a shield generator instead.

But he's gonna have to waste firepower anyways, more units with less drones in a squad gives more flexibility for you. 6 seems optimal.

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

As I'm playing a lot of games against my friend who plays Daemons, ATS is a waste...I like the philosophy "more guns is better" even when not playing against him. ATS might be slightly better point wise against certain models/units, but not always, that's why I'd rather take more shots ove...

Thanks!


Done, thanks for the heads up.

Re: 2000 points competitive tournament list

Ended up not going to the tournament because of some family issues. On the other hand, another Tau list completely dominated the tournament and won of course. As expected, it was Commander + Drone spam. As I'm not sure if anyone wants to see the list and if this is the right place to post it, I'll w...

Re: Lots of commanders and drones.

Definitely get rid of the Drone Controller on the Stormsurge and get either a Early Warning Override or a Velocity Tracker.

Re: Rethinking my whole army.

See, it's situational. A general rule "charge with everything" doesn't really apply. I understand what you meant with that strategy, but a newcomer who's gonna stumble on this thread and read that part may not. And as mentioned before, you want to deny the enemy shooting, not yourself....s...

Re: Flamers vs. Burst cannons

If you look at my spreadsheet for crisis loadout it shows average wounds against different save values and points per wound. You are paying almost double the cost of a wound on the burst cannons compared to flamers. The flamers however are pretty dependant on a stealth team with a homing beacon so ...

Re: Rethinking my whole army.

5. Alpha strike is everything 6. Everything you have can and should charge the enemy as soon as possible You can still manta strike just half your army, half has to be on the table when deploying ends. And I strongly disagree on charging with everything. First, that may have worked against Astra Mi...

Re: Rethinking my whole army.

I think that's pretty straight forward....go either: - Commander with 4 Fusion Blaster - Commander with 4 Cyclic Ion Blaster Another option with Stealth Suits and the Homing Beacon is Flamer Commander, haven't used them yet so not sure what the exact loadout is, they are not bad on normal Crisis Sui...

Re: 2000 points competitive - stormsurge gimmick

Isn't there just 1 Eternal War mission that has kill points? In one of my games where I was using my Stormsurge, the enemy Necron player managed to drag him into Combat and surround it so that we stayed like that for 4 turns. Obviously, because I lack game experience and positioned the Storsurge nea...

Re: 2000 points competitive tournament list

Well the 2 Commanders with Drone Controller are starting off in normal deployment, CIB is 18'' range....so I need something with more range on them. EDIT: I'm not a big fan of the Missile Pod Commander, but I thought as he will be starting way back (won't be manta striking him) all he needs is be 6'...
