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

It would need either a drastic decrease in point...I'm talking as low as 2pts for Crisis and Commanders to be viable in a PPW scenario...or it would need to be additional AP- on a 6 or +1 BS at even the current points cost. Option 1 is more viable, but they would have to make 2 ATS selection like th...

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

I put an ATS on my Dual Burst HAZARD suits. I haven't done the math, but my experience tells me that my opponents really hate them. It's different with the hazards, Riptide, ghostkeels etc as the ATS is an add on it doesn't replace a weapon which is my main question, I have no doubt I would rather ...

You do if you don't want a 50% chance of that last drone fleeing.

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Also...I tend to take drones in units no larger than 4 with an Ethereal nearby for leadership 9. Basically that makes your drones fearless anyways. Thank you HAZARD suits!

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Yes, drones cost resources, but they have more resources to churn out drones than they do to churn out T'au, so self preservation when there are still squishy blues left on the battlefield doesn't make much sense. Well I think its a lot more complex than that, the Ethereals have a delicate balance ...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

All of that being said...a stratagem or piece of wargear for making them fearless in a bubble would be cool! Standard Protocol Override: A model equipped with a Drone Controller may upgrade that controller to also override any protocols that would cause Drones to flee from failed morale. All Drone <...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

It is a bit jinky that drones can have a protocol to sacrifice themselves but at the same time, a protocol to save themselves. I like to view it as an INTEL thing. When the losses look like they are piling up for a Drone Squad, some of the drones may disengage so they can relay conditions back to co...

Re: 2000 points competitive tournament list

My thoughts are that Commnaders will either be hiked very soon, or we will go back to only having 2 weapons per suit. It may also be a combination of both. As for T'au as a whole, I think they are competitive as long as you don't want to have any gaming friends but completely awful if you do. There ...

Re: 2000 Point TAC List

Honestly, if this is for a local store and you are looking to make friends, I would not use 3x Commanders. I limit myself to only 2x commanders when playing casual. Also, your list really only has enough markerlight support to put 5 ML on 1 target only semi-reliably. Because of Longstrike and the co...

Re: Longstrike + Crisis Bodyguards + shield drones/tactical drones

I think that you would be able to pass a wound from any character, Longstrike included, to a crisis bodyguard as a mortal wound, which would then pass to a drone as a mortal wound. The save would only be made on the last model to receive the wound in the chain, but it could pass wounds from a tank ...

Re: Warhammer Community posts AdMech Preview

There are no formations anymore, just detachments. And of course you are allowed to take the same detachment multiple times. Varies from tournament format to tournament format, but so far in ITC, I have not seen it banned. Some local formats say no doubling or limit you to 2 detachments instead of ...
