Tau Commander 3x CIB + Multitracker

This may already have been discussed (I've looked but can't find anything on the forums), but I have a idea for a Tau Commander pulling three Cyclic Ion Blasters and a Multitracker. So the thing is that the CIB inflicts a mortal wound on the bearer on a hit roll of 1. Therefore, the multitracker com...

Re: The gundam that the Tau Gun Drone seems to be based on

They're actually still making it: new miniseries called battlelouge, but that's off topic I guess. Anyway, just wanted to show something to the community, unless anyone has anything more to say, I'd like to request that one of the Admins edit locks this. I think it's going waaay off topic now.

Re: The gundam that the Tau Gun Drone seems to be based on

One of the old Mobile Armors from Zeta? Man, that's nostalgic. Saw that show before I ever got into Tau, but they really do look highly similar! :biggrin: Yeah. I found out about that one while rewatching the opening of the first episode of Gundam Build Fighters Try (one of the less well known seri...

Re: A Broken Sword may still cut: Discussion on ways to use 'Broken' Units in 8e

Since the release of 8e we're really in a holding pattern, as we don't have our "real" Tau codex yet. But what's worse is that with every new codex, how our army works vis-à-vis the other army changes. Bell of Lost Souls has an article on the new IG codex: BoL Astra Militarum Order Rundow...

Re: Rule question regarding Shadowsun's drones.

Battlescribe marks the Command Link as a automatic choice included in the points cost. So Yeah, the shield drones are optional, but the command drone is a definate.

A Broken Sword may still cut: Discussion on ways to use 'Broken' Units in 8e

As of now, I have quite a few units that are considered 'broken' in 8e. So, I decided that ATT needs a community tactica page to discuss those units that are broken, one model at a time. Since quite a few of our battlesuits, and pretty much all our troop choices are now decidedly bad choices (or at ...

Re: Orca rush

Orcas are kinda bad at offence, and I haven't had the chance to buy one yet. I do have a friend who plays FE, and he has a Orca. They are certainly better than the Devilfish at delivering troops, but suffer when you put them under fire. Compared to the Devilfish with the burst cannon + SMS, it can't...

Re: What are those stories the community does??

That'd be good. There should be one with the Orks invading. That would be downright chaotic!!!

Can you use a DX-4 Techical Drone to repair a Nova Reactor mortal wound???

Hey ATT!!! I was thinking about good unit combos, and I thought up a combination of a pair of riptides and a single 2-drone unit of Forge World DX-4 technical drones. Along with high point price and limited usability, one of the big problems with the Riptide is the fact that Nova Reactor usage (one ...

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...

I read through the story threads regarding the orbital, and then looked at the forum guidlines and resources relating to ATT.

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...
