Savior Protocols Inquiry

Hello everyone! Quick couple of questions regarding Savior Protocols if you have the time and knowledge. Savior Protocols stated that if a drones unit is within 3" of a friendly infantry or battsuit you can choose to allocate any wounds to the drones instead of the target unit. Here are my ques...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

Flamers are amazing on Crisis suits. Partially because it takes too many markerlights to make them shoot decently. Flamers don't care about BS and are amazing are overwatch. A perfect mix for putting suits dangers close. They can form a great line of defense behind drones as a screen for commanders...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

They get rapid fired from the whole other army. Survivors will be charged. If the enemy has a dedicated melee unit (TWC, Wraiths) they will laugh off the remaining flamers. If not, they will try charges from 9". Sure adding drones is helpful, because drones are good, as I said. Removing Flamer...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

Honestly, if your enemy can't kill 5 Crisis in 8" of his army, you don't need to worry about list building at all You really think so? I mean.. the crisis suits are not exactly easy to kill they are T5 with a 3+ save and can have drones that absorb the big hits as well as prevent charges, thou...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

26 should be the average, you are indeed rolling poorly :D Still, that's 8 dead marines, from your 350p 5-Crisis Team. Which is dead next turn. Just for comparision. For 350p I'll take 40 Gun Drones, which put out 160 Shots, killing 12 marines and live to tell the Story (and can be much improved wi...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

I understand that flamers have the downside of the range factor. This means that you need to position the unit close to the assaulting units. Not a very Tau like thing to do right? I know. But ignoring the rolls to hit increases our chance of winning significantly! Flamers are expensive but I think ...

Re: 8th - Crisis Task Force - 1978pts

Edit: Lol! goodness. I found it. Hmmm.. that is something to think about for sure. But in those Knight lists you don't think 30d6 flamers and 24 High-output burst cannons as well as 6 missile pod attacks won't be enough? Don't forget that there is small arms fire from the fire warriors too... I'm he...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

Seems like this would be the best place to ask this question.... I've watched a few bat reps now and I am pretty scared of swarm lists. I'm thinking of running two 5 man squads of XV8 Crisis Battlesuit Teams with three flamers on each suit with a few drones for ablative wounds and possibly markerlig...

Re: Rising Star: Cold Star Commander In 8th Edition

I think a BIG problem this list will have is heavy weapons teams. This is the kind of list that will surprise someone once. After that a balanced list will crush it. Heavy weapons and all weapons that do D# dmg will hurt this list badly because they will just pick off the commanders one at a time. W...

Re: Fifth Sphere Expansion: 8thed Tau Fluff

My T'au army will be Grey and white like hammerhead sharks. Oddly enough I'm going to have my faction be a part of the 4th expansion fleet that got wisked away by the storms and pretty much allied themselves with a human world. Going to have old-school artwork like on the ww2 planes on my transports...

Returning to 40k

Hey everyone! So I have been lurking around 40k since 4th ed and have been very hesitant in rejoining. So far 8th is looking very promising! I have loved the look of the T'au since they were created years ago and had stopped myself from starting them because someone else the group of players would a...
