Re: Tau bland in 8th?

The thing we gained which we never had was drones that matter. Really the self-sacrificing little frisbees are the glue that hold a Tau army together in 8th and I am still finding new ways in which that opens up fun things for us to do. Drones were always one of the distinctive features of Tau but ...

Tau bland in 8th?

Serious question here (not a complaint) for the more tenured among us. I just started playing in 8th (but picked up at the end off 7th) and picked my faction based upon advice from a more tenured player based on; -knowing that I liked ranged/shooty stuff (in general prior experience) -wanting to pla...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

1) If you are buying a model only to pay to win, don't have a lot of sympathy. Balance changes always happen, and you should expect them, especially when we don't even have a codex. 2) It's not functionally equivalent. It is still fantastic, and easily the toughest titan around thanks to drones. Th...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

I don’t own a Ta’unar, but (presuming this is true) in what world is this acceptable for the consumer? They’re invalidating a $300+ investment for everyone who purchased one. I would be so ticked if I spent the money and hours on end assembling and painting it for this to happen. It’s the functional...

Re: Stormsurge

Lots of weird decisions here IMO. Why no crushing feet? Why T7? Why no anchors turn 1? Why no battlesuit keyword? Why 6" movement when all other big models get way more? Why not zoidberg? Is there ANY other titanic (humanoid) model that doesn't get to walk over infantry models? Or that doesn't ...

Re: Talk about Farsight and Shadowsun

Well that's the difference between a special character with custom gear and an ultra (no pun intended) useful aura....and special characters with a meh special rule and a fix loadout consisting of basic weaponry like Fusion Blaster or Plasma Rifles. Makes me think giving them a better aura would be...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Have any of the codices given meaning to the "jet pack" key word? That would provide some insight into what we can expect on that front.

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

Maybe not the weapons, but what about the buff to HtoH with the ATS? It's pretty much a given that you're going to end up in close combat at least once. Not rly, the flamer overwatch is kinda brutal. Charges from outside 8" though Yes that is right both weapons can be used with the Nova reacto...

Re: 8th ed transports, EWO, and deployment

Must have been too early this AM when I posted. I recalled reading someone saying that it had to be the unit’s own ability. Went back through and couldn’t find it. Apologies extended. :fear:

Re: 8th ed transports, EWO, and deployment

Some misinformation here about EWO. The unit does NOT have to be from reserve or use its own ability. Things like a psyker phase teleport would trigger EWO (read the updated faq for reference). This is despite wording in the rule that somewhat contradicts that application... But what else is new rig...

Re: Vertical movement question

The more I think about it the less it makes sense really. If you can end on top of a ruins without extra movement then you can move ANY amount of verticality on a terrain piece without movement cost. Or, if you want to get picky, the cost to move off and immediately back on said terrain piece.

Disgustingly Resilient: Each time a model in this unit loses a wound, roll a D6; on a roll of 5 or 6, the model does not lose that wound.
