Re: Burst cannon vs gun drones

He was using the fire prism formation with the 1 CP stratagem that impacts all fire prisms....it does all of those things...and it still allows them to fire twice if they didn’t move. Nasty As for the CRISIS BC range extension, I’m not trying to replace fire warriors. I’m just trying to give CRISIS ...

Re: Burst cannon vs gun drones

I actually think a great place to take Burst Cannons would be to increase their range to 24". At 18" most crisis teams find themselves having to wipe everything in front of them, or be subject to charges, especially in this edition where re-rolls and modifiers make charging easier. I would...

Re: Burst cannon vs gun drones

When comparing somewhat equal points costs you can get 3 CIB suits with 9 CIBs for about the same price as 4 Flamer or BC Crisis suits with all weapons or 2 Burst with ATS. The broad wound comparison is below At 4+ saves, Flamers actually out damage everything at all toughnesses with the exception o...

I also made that argument, but this is from the rules folks...not just some random opponent.

Re: Anyone tried a Tau close Combat theme list in this edition?

One point of clarification. I was playing a game yesterday and used a Stealth Suit with an ATS in close combat. I was informed that the ATS does NOT count for close combat attacks because it specifically states that it improves the weapon by -1 AP and not attacks. Since without a codex, we do not ha...

Re: Bonding knife on suits, 4 man teams?

TL:DR - 4 Crisis isn't cost beneficial in almost any situation, but 4 Stealth can make a HUGE durability difference depending on your style of play. Even when using CIBs, I don't run bigger crisis teams because of the temptation to make the drone squads too large. Anything more than 6 Drones (actual...

Farsight Expeditionary Cadre - Stealth Team 1

Started a stealth team (old version) to add to my Farsight Cadre. Went with a reverse scheme of mostly grey with red accents to make it look more stealthy. Also incorporated some hex on the helmet and jump pack to help it fit the overall scheme better. Let me know what you guys think! https://imgur....

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Amy List

There are non. Our only chance is redundancy or hope the board offers enough LoS blocking so we can move out of cover and hit Markerlights on 5+. :neutral: Nothing in any army is truly alpha proof to a determined opponent unless it is off the table. The best you can hope on the table would be LoS b...

Re: About the fortifications

There is no leadership modifier for our Tidewalls nor are there any save modifiers because you cannot shoot at units embarked in a vehicle. You must destroy the Tidewall before you can engage the troops embarked.

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 ...

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 <...
