Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But the mechanic itself is copypasta from space marines and stimulates “pure” armies. They could do something detatchment-wide rather than army-wide for instance, and then give bonuses based on how varied your army is. The mechanic is part of the core 8th Edition rules, it was never Marine-specific...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What exactly am I doing to myself? I enjoy thinking of ways to improve things. I know that we were all going to get sept traits. I'm just saying that I don't like copypasta mechanics. You're disappointed because GW isn't adopting your interpretation of the lore. Sending emails probably just got you...

Re: Fusion Collider vs. Cyclic Ion Raker... thoughts?

So after running with my CIR and 2×FB Keel last night, I think I'm opting for the CIR and 2× BC build. Arka was 100% right when he pointed out that fusion on a 4+ BS without markerlight support is not worth it. More dakka means a little more statistical reliability. Thanks! Sacrificing a little bit...

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

So Warhammer Community confirms five Empire sept tactics plus the Farsight Enclaves. The specific septs haven't been confirmed, but we can guess some. (1) T'au (just because it's obvious) (2) Vior'la (just because it's obvious) (3) Bor'kan (rumored/leaked by Haechi) (4) ??? (5) ??? (6) Farsight Enc...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Anyone else disappointed there are only 5 septs (+Farsight Enclaves)? I am disappointed at the idea of septs. We are not space marines. Our army is unified. I've sent them like 10 emails about this. But they are lazy rule-writers and they will always be lazy rule-writers, so every faction will be g...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Someone on 4chan said the rumor pic is a Tau melee weapon. Said pile bunker. Google gave me this. http://lostplanet.wikia.com/wiki/Pile_Bunker That person was absolutely me, and it was absolutely a fabrication on my part. It may be a thinly veiled excuse to say that it was somewhere between specula...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Going back to the Markerlight topic once more: So, as far as I understand it, there isn´t going to be any change to the Markerlight table according to the (incomplete and rumor based) info that we have. Consequently this would mean that there is zero possibility to push BS beyond +1, right? If this...

Re: Kauyon and flyers.

If there is a psychic power out there that makes a unit immobile, it is a guaranteed flyer killer. This is also why I hate that only our flyers don't hover. There's also a fun trick that one of the Bloodthirsters gets, it makes enemies in combat with it unable to fall back on a 4+. Get into combat ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I hope Haechi was right that we be getting good buffs. I don’t want so much I’m overpowered though. I agree he could be an elaborate fake, but honestly I’m inclined to believe him as I’ve said before. If it's an elaborate fake that would be hilarious. So much effort over such a long time. That's wh...

Re: First 2k list

If i do Montka i can change up targets after seeing how the marker lights flop down. That said i could save it for a kauyon but I don't really keep a firing line to make use of it =/ Personally I like to save it for turn two or three. If I need to make a stand, I can use Kau'yon. If I need to have ...

I don't have the rulebook on me right now, but yes, there is. I think it just kills the flyer and causes mortal wounds around the crash site.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

These are not different things. They are just different levels of low expectations. Do I expect the tau to never be competitive again? No. I think they are very different. To be pessimistic means to have a negative outlook, expecting bad things and expecting disappointment. To have low expectations...

Re: First 2k list

First is their range, so in the case of my warlord who sits back he declares Montka first turn letting my airships move anywhere on the battle field and fire without penalty while still laying down fire himself. I actually wouldn't do this. Tau flyers are very dependent on Markerlights, so you will...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Absolutely the mindset we need to have. Getting pessimistic about things that (a) have not happened yet, and (b) may not happen at all, is just looking for an excuse to complain. The same can be said about being optimistic. If you are pessimistic, you can be surprised. If you are optimistic, you ca...

Re: Kauyon and flyers.

What happens if you declare kauyon with a baracuda that has a minimum movement speed. Kauyon says they cannot move for any reason. You can choose whether or not Kauyon affects a unit. If they move, no re-rolling hits. If they do not move, they re-roll hits. For the Barracuda, you would choose for i...

Re: First Tries at a Locally Competitive 1500 Point List

The idea is that, generally speaking, the Coldstar Commanders assassinate the enemy warlord and then go on to take out as much as they can after that. The Drones sit back to cover the 3 characters along with possibly one squad of kroot (and aun'shi is sorta a bodyguard as well) with the other squad...
