Re: 1000pt game Table to win

I like this list idea. However, since almost all of your units are Characters (or Vehicles) the Pathfinders seem like they'll die early on. Just a thought. I like the idea of the Coldstar Drone-buffer though, that sounds fun. Anyway, I think at 1000 points two Fusion Commanders are enough; there's n...

Re: 50PL list for local tourny

Looks like a very solid list! However, it's a PL tournament so consider taking higher-value upgrade items. Use your CIBs for anti-infantry, and swap your Flamers out for an all-Fusion Blaster build! The cost is the same! Also, we can make our PL work for us a little more by dropping the two Marker D...

Re: First time 500pt list

So i bough the get started box and am not too sure how to run it to have a playable army. Ive got a rough list written but im honestly unsure if its good or if some of the things ive included are flat out wastes of points. So my idea is to have a small army that i can flesh out into a full 2k point...

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

The tau thread about ideal drone size seem to slightly favour squads of 6 over 8 slightly although both being strong and as I read it there is a very very strong synergy with a drone controller adding to rolls. Both are good picks- feel free to use either! My understanding, perhaps wrong, is that a...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Thanks for all the tactical analysis! There are a few things we can still improve though in your new list- first, again, you need more threats on the field. At this point you only have the big XV8 squad and the Stormsurge. Everything else is just support for those units. Sure they're powerful, but y...

Ah. I don't know why but it sure is refreshing to see some classic Tau sept color on a Fire Warrior! :D I really like the progress picture you took. Simple but effective! Thanks! There's something great about the old classic colors. This makes me want to scrub all my dudes clean, but that's A LOT o...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Just one last thing regarding the Ion Blasters. Your list says 8 but do I actually only need 6? (3 XV8's with 2x each) Will get the price down a little. You can arm XV8s with 2x CIBs and 1x ATS each instead of all CIBs, it's cheaper and similarly powerful, however, all CIBs ends up being a more com...

Re: Sa'Cea Sept Panels

Thanks :) Didn't know the sept was just the markings etc. Always seen certain colour schemes used with certain septs. I do like the bluish grey scheme, so will probably give it a go. Maybe keep grey panels and then the commander with the sept colour panels and antennae on helmets. Yeah, the "s...

Re: Can you attach a spare Hammerhead turret to a devilfish??

If you assemble a Devilfish without gluing on the cupola or the Burst Cannon, and buy a Hammerhead turret & the Targeting Array on eBay, you can easily make a TX chassis that you can use as a Hammerhead or as a Devilfish. To make a Devilfish, pop in the cupola and attach the Burst Cannon to the ...

Re: 2k points for casual gaming

Makes sense. Here's what I'd do in that case. Give the Fusion Commander a pair of Shield Drones. Drop the Guardian Drone from the Breachers, as well as their Markerlight. Switch the Riptide's Stimulant Injector for a Target Lock. Switch the XV9s' Gun Drones for Shield Drones. Replace the Firesight M...

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

If you're bringing a Cadre Fireblade, you need more than 10 models worth of Pulse weapons. So in this case, run those 6 Gun Drones with the Fireblade and his Fire Warriors, and that would be a decent formation. For the time being, give the Stealthsuits a Homing Beacon (+20), combine the Fire Warrior...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

I agree with Panzer's point- let's make those changes. Also, I think there's too much upgrades and wargear on those Stealthsuits. Let's relax the Stealthsuit wargear too, add some more Pathfinders, and I'd also go for a full-Flamer kit on those other XV8s. Here's how I'd imagine the list: HQ - Comma...

Re: 1600 - almoust horde :)

Looks like a fun list! However, I think we can reduce the number of drops a bit- let's take Fire Warriors in groups of 10, and Gun Drones in groups of 6. Those numbers work pretty well. Also, with such a huge number of infantry, Aun'va would be fantastic for this army. Overall though we need more an...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

The idea for this list- Manta Strike-deployed units backed up by a Stormsurge- is a good one. However, the other units don't seem to support it all that well. At the end of the day, I don't think the list has enough .Let's see what we can do. HQ - Coldstar Commander w/ High-Yield Burst Cannon, Missi...

Re: 2k points for casual gaming

Looks like a solid list- however, what's your meta like? Is it all infantry? This list seems to pack an absolutely massive amount of anti-infantry firepower. You have a Fire Warrior/Fireblade gunline, three XV9s with DBBCs/Gun Drones/ATS, an anti-infantry Riptide, and a few Gun Drones in for good me...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I definitely see how the firepower can be an issue going toe to toe with a las predator. It's absolutely tough. You either need to use Commanders w/ 4x Fusion Blasters to take care of the Predators, or XV8s/Commanders w/ Cyclic Ion Blasters in larger numbers. But the problem is there isn't much of ...
