Thanks AnonAmbientLight. That's great information and I'm glad that there was an official response to this, er, hysteria.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I agree. I have watched a lot of their streams and while Reece may trash talk on occasion (more of a playful way anyway), he would never conspire to make one faction weaker to suit some kind of agenda. This Reece aside, we do have our first real rumor. According to that rumor, the things we'll get ...

Re: 1000 points, first list for 8th

thanks for the feedback, I wasn't sure about drones so I appreciate the advice. I have rewritten the list to try and take your recommendations onboard: Vanguard detachment commander, 4x fusion blasters, 2x shield drones 3 stealth suits, drone controller , 6 marker drones 3 crisis suits, 6x CIB, 3 g...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I don’t they would put out the Tau battle force if they were trying to phase Tau out. I believe our codex is gonna do great! Every codex so far has been great. So will ours! They're obviously not going to remove Tau. It's just the (conspiracy) theory that some of the playtesters don't like Tau, and...

Re: Markerlights, cover, and other factions.

Unfortunately that text in the table is redundant, since only Tau Empire units can even benefit from Markerlights in the first place.

Re: Steg's Lists thread: on to 2k?

So now to figure out what to use in a 1,5k and maybe 2k list. Was already thinking about adding a Cadre Fireblade to use with the Fish, but even with the undecided drones and swapping out some drones for the Crisis Suits I won't have enough Gun Drones yet to make that tactic work yet.. Though leavi...

Re: Anti infantry 1k pt

Okay! So, we're definitely going to want Flamer XV8s, a mechanized Gun Drone unit, Stealthsuits, and some objective-scoring units too. Are you certain the enemy isn't bringing tanks? Also, are your suits magnetized? Pending those questions, here's my thought: HQ - Cadre Fireblade w/ Markerlight (42)...

Re: 1500pt VS Harlequins

Thanks for getting back to me Arka :) This isn't a kill points game no, but it is a grudge match! :dead: That isn't on that list I have access too, 1 DF, a bunch of kroot, 5 Stealth suits, 5 Vespid, 3 Rail-Finders, 3 Ion-FInders. I think that's it, only have 7 suits I'm afraid. I can change Longstr...

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: 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: 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...
