Re: Stealth suits for dummies

So from what I can tell based on the leaks, the rule will work exactly the same as it currently does with the exception of only happening on a 2+. It's a pretty big nerf....much bigger than what has been reported. It may be overcome if other units get better or cheaper, though. With this change, we ...

unless you're bringing something slightly questionable like a flamer+dc commander Just top 15'ed at a GT with it so say what you will I guess... Jesus Christ dude...stop TRYING to be offended.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I am far from new to 40k. Was actually wondering if the person had gotten squats and demiurg mixed up. Squats aren't gone from the fluff and even the story of them getting eaten by Tyranids was a studio joke. They have appeared in stories for some time now. I also want to see a demiurg force on the...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Can't tell how much is a joke but squats are not the group that is allied to tau or gave them ion tech. That was the demiurg. Similar height but no one has seen the demiurg outside of their full body suits. They are closer to gnomes in terms of their tech. It was most definitely a joke (unless they...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

It looks a little Tau-ish but it has rivets, or it looks a little Imperial-ish but is a little too curvy. Sound familiar? My guess is it's something like the Redemptor Dreadnought or Repulsor Tank, a Primaris machine that seems to have a little Tau inspiration. Hmmm...something Tau-ish but not Tau....

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

Of note...spreading fire out among 5 drone teams is not more effective since you will have a hard time overcoming the 3 shield drones in each Drone Team when that spread out. This strategy would rely on Morale rolls to finish off teams with 1-3 drones left where targeting 3 or 4 drone teams statisti...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

I think his point is... That is partly correct. That is the point he is making; however, he is neglecting the pocket wounds that the stealth suits can take (wounds that are caused that do not result in the death of any drones) the stealth team has 5 pocket wounds Here are the final stats adjusted f...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Regarding Rail-rifles/Rail weaponry in general, I think Heavy D3 would fix a lot. Rail-rifles being Heavy D3 seems a lot more thematic. They're more akin to a high powered sniper rifle. Keeping them at S6 AP-4 D D3 but Heavy 3 and making them 15-17 points would work wonders. Then we have a gun that...

Re: Ideas for Sept Traits

I think Tash'var should get laser shotguns into Melee. They are supposed to be awesome with breachers, fought melee armies with them a lot (I can't remember if it was Orks or Nids, but it was one), so... Laser shotgun into Melee. Like, let the pulse blaster count as a pistol or something. I mean th...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

Put nothing at all on a Stealth Team other than a DC and it's 89 points Incorrect. 95 points. 90 for the 3 stealths, 5 for the DC. And you're not using the proper math for shield drones anyway. Please take this to PM if you insist. I'm not using any math for shield drones. I stated that up front. A...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

I love Stealth Suites. Honestly going to buy another pack myself when I make it up to the GW store next time. My only criticism of them, is my criticism of all suites right now, in that they need a 3+ to hit by default. And then, I think I'd be okay if the Stealth suite retained the 4+ to hit, give...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

I'm not sure... Wait....so are sacrificing all 4 2+ to hit weapon slots to create this Commander DC? There are plenty of models that can ignore character other than just Snipers, but none of that even matters if you look at the stats below. The burst cannons on a Stealth Team are just a bonus. The ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I agree with the optimism in recent posts. I too will be nose deep in the new codex for many reasons: learning the changes, reading the new fluff, admiring the new artwork (if there is any). I'll be extremely happy to finally have a hardback book for my army. And I too think that, even though our a...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

UNTARGETTABLE. What part of this word are you people missing? Makes him infinitely harder to kill than stealths which are admittedly hard to kill anyway. But the point stands that my DC caddy is untargettable. Everyone complains about how easy it is to break up our synergy with killing off markerli...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

I think you may be forgetting to factor in the massive amount of firepower you lose giving a DC to a commander and taking away his BS2+ entirely with flamers. Yes quite. A drone controller and a flamer is a waste of 2 BS2+ weapons. Stealth suit can take a drone controller without losing any amount ...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

On top of all the resilience, they're also probably our best carrier for a drone controller as it stands, as they don't lose a weapon to take it. Means if you use a homing beacon for a flamer crisis team with 6x gun drones, you essentially get 6 more burst cannons worth of S5 fire :) Their damage o...

Re: Sense of Stone and Shield Drones

After CA, I think the PEN is perhaps only slightly better. Still not sure why we (and a couple other factions) get CPs back on a 6+ but others get them back on a 5+. Seems like just giving everyone a 5+ relic OR a 6+ relic would have been more condusive to less butthurtedness. To be fair, a lot of ...
