Re: Is Commander Farsight worth taking?

I think it really depends on what you will be fighting against, if you are going to come up against a lot of armies with support characters rather than super killy combat monsters then sure he can be worth taking. Your standard commander may be better with multiple guns, however if you are already ...

Can you attach a spare Hammerhead turret to a devilfish??

I'm about to buy two devilfish APC units, and I have a Ion Cannon left over from one of my hammerheads. Is it possible to fit a devilfish with a ion cannon. I don't mean haphazardly. I mean, are the two models simular enough in connection design to allow a devilfish to be turned into a hammerhead wi...

What are those stories the community does??

I read through the story threads regarding the orbital, and then looked at the forum guidlines and resources relating to ATT. I didn't find anything about those invasion stories this place seems to do every year. First, what are they. Second, how do I join in?? Sorry if this is a little bit of a wei...

Re: Tau Starship specifications

If you ask around on reddit, in r/40klore, I bet people could tell you more about Tau starships and 40k starships in general over there, they're absurdly knowledgeable. Thanks for the tip Akra. I'd like to also add a bit of headcanon on Tau aircraft aesthetics in this post as well as thanking you t...

Tau Starship specifications

Ok guys, this is a series of non-canon specifications for the Tau starships that canonically exist. I will try and update if I miss any of the standard ships. This will range from the Orca Dropship to the Tau orbitals (like this one!!!). I know orbitals are not really starships, but I've been on the...

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

Support Turrets and their role in the Strike Team While the DS8 Support turret has been made slightly less of a choice for a team than it should, there are still advantages to taking this model as part of a unit. As it does not need to be set up at the start, and can be placed in a movement phase, ...

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

Renember people, this is only a rough version of what I hope this tactica to be. In fact, just by posting these suggestions, you've improved the quality of the article. I'm going to post some stuff on the upgrades later. Just BT dubs Arka, I've found that some of the upgrades (such as the Gun and Sh...

Re: Character Targeting rules

I'm a bit confused about the rules regarding the targeting of characters. As I understand it, your opponent cannot target your character models unless they are the closest unit, with the explicit exception of units using the sniper rules. However, my friend (who plays Deathwatch) seems convinced th...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Does he run Typhus and a psyker to buff the zombies to t5? Does he run multiple 20 man squads of them? Does he use the stratagem to make the plague marines immune to shooting for a turn? Did he use any stratagems? What does he equip the plague marines with? They can have plasma guns, plague launche...

Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

Strike Team Tactica The Tau Fire Warrior Strike Team is one of our most versatile units. Able to carry either the classic pulse rifle (Strength 5 with Rapid Fire) or the Pulse Carbine (Strength 5 with 2 shots per shooting phase), they remain the primary unit for any burgeoning army (or any army rea...

Re: Painting gold

Try a mix of sycorax bronze and Jokaro Orange with a bit of Auric Armour. Makes a nice dull gold when done nice, and somehow keeps the reflectivity that it has when wet. Problem is, the mix is really hard to get right.

Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

My battle primer syas overwatch is resolved at BS 5+. It's pretty much been like that since 7th. I remember being relieved that they hadn't removed that. Have they changed their mind (gorram GW!!)

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

They are really weak actually. One of the regulars to my gaming group plays Death Guard, and he's a really good player. Problem is, his army sucks. Now I have nothing against Death Guard. They are a really interesting faction of chaos, being worshipers of the literal source of imperial guardsmen's h...
