Re: Anyone Going to LVO or Adepticon

I will be at both, however I don't know if I will play at adepticon yet. LVO for sure Ill be playing. We are debuting my manta at LVO also which will be a big deal for me. Ive slowed down gaming since SoCal so I could work on it and I am happy to say it is almost done, just a few days left to get i...

Re: New to Tau, need help building army

Honestly, I would hold off on commanders for another month or two unless you just really like the model (they are pretty)and have nothing else you'd rather paint. I think we all know that the nerf bat is on its way for them. They will probably still be good to include in your army in limited numbers...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

I agree it's a poorly written rule. We would not be having this discussion if it were not. I am simply pointing out that there is a precedence for the rule going the other way. It is a nerf because the Recon drone has the ability to ignore cover for a 10man Pathfinder squad (or however many pathfin...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

Ok so by your reasoning gun drones can't shoot if there's a friendly unit closer to them than the enemy because their rules state can only target closest unit in shooting phase misses out the word enemy? You know RAI is meant to be the devilfish attacks ignore cover whilst the recon drone is embark...

Re: Mixing Tau with other Factions

I could see the Tau teaming up with Chaos Demons in a way

It wouldn't really be that they were teaming up with the demons, but rather the demons were ignoring them because there is something there with more psychic presence that they want to deal with first. :P

Re: Mixing Tau with other Factions

The local Ork player and I team up sort of regularly. We create a giant mob of boys and fire warriors that move onto the field, one time using around 2x 30 boys and my 30 fire warriors + fireblade all in FtGG range of them with the pulse accelerator drone. No one dared to charge that blob :crafty: ...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

Ok well let me know if you find anyone who will let you do that because I certainly wouldn't. RAW Precedence for ignoring benefits for cover for only the weapons or shots from a single unit almost always state..."this unit/weapon" or "hits from this unit/weapon" or "wounds ...

Re: Tau Win Percentage Log

Ok! Time for an UPDATE!! Sorry this took me awhile, I was having some connectivity problems on the workstation where the log for this is kept Overall: 63.6% Competitive: 62.6% Casual: 64.9% Looks like we aren't doing so bad as a community for what I would consider active and invested Tau players.

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

You're misreading that, a unit shot at by a devilfish with a recon drone embarked can't take cover saves FROM THOSE SHOTS it doesn't remove the cover also the recon drone is embarked and can't fire it's weapon either... I understand what it is probably intended to be. I even put that in my original...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

It may be interesting if you already plan to mount up your pathfinders in a devilfish to add a recon drone that never gets out just to go around and deny cover bonuses to units...especially since each weapon can target independently so you can deny up to 6 units cover a turn (one for the recon dron...

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

Because my stealth team was in the first set of drops and I had no idea where his units would go or if I would have first turn (he was using a typical Astra Militarum list), I decided to put them in the devilfish... Hey! Although your idea is really cool and imaginative, I don't think you can trans...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

Don't discount the drones that come with the Pathfinders. They do some pretty good stuff and you can take up to 5 if you take all of the different types, which is a good size. If you are using special weapons in your teams, the shield drones add some durability while the Grav drone keeps them from b...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I mean, fluff wise, T'au have had bad 3D vision and reflexes since the first codex. They're sluggish and bad at estimating depth. Their poor BS is justified to me. But they also have tons of AIs to assist them and I don't understand how those can't hit anything. I can understand why the AI might ne...

Re: Space wolves help

I have a friend in my local group who does the same thing. He either outflanks them or runs them in a Stormwolf transport. Luckily the rest of his normal list isn't too deadly. I have faced him numerous times, and although both of our lists constantly change, he always includes at least one squad of...

Anyone Going to LVO or Adepticon

As the title suggests, drop a line here if you're going to LVO or Adepticon and if you're planning to play in any of the tournaments as Tau.

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

I recently used an odd combo just because of the game mode (CA mission where you split your forces into equal thirds and deploy one at random). The force that got picked was my Ethereal (Aun Shi for all of you people who like to point out my username in every convo), My drone support loaded Devilfis...

Could be good with Breachers though! I'm not at home right now, don't have the Index handy. If Kroot don't have a SEPT key...
