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...

Actually it's BS 5+. I just checked my battle primer.

Why do drones have to take morale??

I recently played a game against Death Guard, and I realised something. Their Plague Zombies have the Mindless rule, which means they do not have to test for morale when losing units. As morale is technically the fear of having your squad destoryed, why do our drones have to take morale??? I know th...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

1. You do realise that the enemy can target any unit in range (unless a) they are hidden behind cover, b) they're not a character and c) you don't have a taller unit in front of them). This is true but did ZettaCrash mention something about this? He said something about having to dump loads of roun...

Command Points: How do I use them???

OK guys, I know this is a little late to ask, but how in the name of the Tau'va do I use those gorram command points??? I know they can be used to reroll failed to-hits. But since I don't have a copy of the full, unabridged rulebook (I only have the free battle primer (ina error of judgement I spend...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

I've got two friends who play Dark Eldar and they loooove their mobility and firepower. Couple that with their ability to get into CC and absolutely shred T'au units and they're a huge problem. Thankfully, having played enough games against them, I have learned what is wonderfully effective. 1. Vel...

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

I love the ATS. I feel the 1 AP is pretty powerful. Especially on something with 1 AP already. Brings Space marines to a 4+ or a 5 + if -2 AP. Missiles with -2 would bring Termies to 4+ dealing D3. That seems far more killable than a 2+ or even 3+! You do realise you can't take ATS on Space marines...

Re: Tactics vs. Dark Eldar

Well, I have a Dark Eldar army and I disagree with some points said here earlier. 1st. Sniper drones are a real pain for some DE builds. Get a drone controller and 1-2 marksman and snipe the Beastmaster ;) He just has 3HP and a low 5+6+++ and his death reduces the flocks & co from LD9(with +2 L...
