Re: 1000 Points Vs Black Legion

My opponent (who also plays tau) said after the game that he noticed my list had little to no ranged firepower. my maximum range was 18" for all but a single weapon. I will have to improve on this. I wouldn't pay too much attention to your opponent's advice. Tau work best at 18" range now...

Re: 2000pt Double Y'vahra and 84 Drones

Sorry for not posting here earlier. I assume the tournament is over already? How did it go?

Re: Anti infantry 1k pt

This is a viable strategy but over 500 points of your army is doing nothing. XV8s need to be in the action destroying targets from turn 1 onward, or else it's a colossal waste of points. I'd give your Flamer team 9x Flamers and deploy them normally, and have them Advance to move up the field and hop...

Re: Advice for 2000pt Local tournament list

Looks like a good start, but there are a few essential changes we need to make! The Y'vahra needs a Target Lock, you should give your Fusion Commanders Shield Drones, make sure your XV8s have the max number of Gun Drones (6x), and if you're planning to have the Ethereal accompany the Y'vahra you'll ...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Re: Spin the Bottle

If that's everything you own, then go for it! It won't be too competitive (your lack of any form of anti-tank is definitely a problem) but that's what small games are for, right? Anyway, I agree with StealthKnightSteg that you should drop the Devilfish SMS (-40) and replace them with Gun Drones (+16...

Re: 1500pt VS Harlequins

Looks like a great start to a list- let me just ask though, this isn't a kill points game, right? Anyway, I think this list has more than enough infantry-killing firepower. You shouldn't have any problems killing the Harlequins who come out of those transports. However, killing the transports themse...

Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

Aren't 2 flamers+ats about the same vs MEQ as 3 flamers? Yeah same but with less minimum amount of hits and less maximum damage due. Having 3 Flamer instead of 2+ATS is just more reliable and has a greater potential against MEQ units. Aren't 2 flamers+ats about the same vs MEQ as 3 flamers? Against...

Re: 1000 pt list

I'd split the Stealthsuits into two squads and drop the CDS, unless you plan to use the Stealthsuits really aggressively- who knows, it might be useful. I still wouldn't take it though. I'm also leaning toward giving the Rail Rifle Pathfinders a pair of Shield Drones each... it might help you keep t...

Re: 1.5k pts with what I have for a friendly battle :)

This is a beautiful list- you'll do well with it. A few tiny changes though: The Stealthsuits should lose the Markerlight & Target Lock (-9) and switch the Drone Controller for another ATS (+3). The Ghostkeel should switch its EWO for a Target Lock (+4) so it can move and fire. The Pathfinder sq...

Re: Basic (kinda cheap) 1000 pt list

I've played some actual games since the last message! Needless to say, I'm off of Flamers now. The Strikers are really enough to handle most hordes... and the army NEEDS its Fusion platforms and AP. I'm still not convinced about CIBs, though... Plasmas aren't TOO much worse, and they're pretty cool...

Re: Stormsurge

Here's my observation. Most good deep strike units are shooting units. However, many players are tempted by the possibility of getting that cool deep strike-assisted charge, something which was largely not possible in previous editions. Shooting may be better, but charges have an appeal that makes t...

Re: Duel Iontides

I’m thinking Farsight. Then the following turn use genius of Mont’ka to charge up field Gotcha. Deploying Farsight and the Iontides properly will be very important then. Since they'll basically be a static firebase on turn one, you might want to consider changing the list a bit. I'd give both Ripti...

Re: Duel Iontides

Remember that with Kauyon you can't move, so the Commander who uses it can't arrive from Manta Strike. Which Commander do you plan to use Kauyon with?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Pathfinders getting a better cover save in cover (like Marine Scouts) or even a to-hit modifier in cover would be really awesome. Pistols on all Strike Teams would be nice but not really needed. They won't survive any half-serious charge with great enough numbers for some pistols to matter anyway. ...
