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

I really, really hope Farsight Enclaves get something that rewards and encourages aggressive tactics. Same with Farsight himself. Reroll 1s to hit in fight phase isn't enough to really make him a viable force multiplier, but in combination with a rad sept rule? Maybe he'll be super rad. Re-rolling ...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Moving JSJ to a Strategem would be a pretty hefty disappointment for Commander spam and would further inflate the value of Y'vahra since it is probably the best single target candidate for JSJ use. Another interesting option would be multiple units using JSJ, but costs multiple CP. Something along ...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

It's a nice idea, but I think that destroys the whole point of our battlesuits being mobile threats really. I don't think a stratagem for JSJ is going to be amazing, but like has been said; we'll get some bad ones and with that, we should get some great ones too, so perhaps when all is said and don...

Re: Alternate Kroot Hound Ideas

My plan was, to use little packs of Kroothounds (4 for just 16 points) to prevent deep striking. Using Kroot Carnivores instead would be much more expensive pointwise. Replacing the exact role would be much more expensive- if you used Kroot Carnivores they'd be as an all-rounder screening/flanking ...

Your bases look absolutely fantastic, Arka. What's your secret? Thanks!

True true! Custodes shifting to BS2+ is a really interesting development. Though I would attribute that to those units being re-worked into a real, standalone army.

Speaking of stratagems earlier, here's the unique one that was just revealed for Custodes:

Wouldn't it be nice to gain something like that- the ability to ignore penalties to hit. Tasty.

Re: Ranged Superiority: How much would you be willing to pay?

DEEP STRIKE IS NO LONGER RANDOM No random scatter makes deep strike at LEAST 3x as powerful as previous editions. You can park a commander at the bare edge of 18'' and know that's he's there for good. You juuuust edge behind terrain for a save or to block LOS to a distant unit. You can count on you...

Re: Tau Win Percentage Log

Poxwalkers were in the back, just spaced enough that I couldn't deepstrike behind them easily. Stratagem played to prevent me from targeting them unless they were the closest unit. lots of castling up in front of them with support characters, plague marines, and cultists. All of my gun drones, requ...

Re: Alternate Kroot Hound Ideas

All of those would be difficult conversions I think if you want to make them really Kroot-y. I mean, Hounds are nice, but given the price of the real model and the difficulty of converting your own, I feel like regular Kroot Carnivores would do just as well in the role.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And also, since people suddenly seem interested in statline changes, besides BS4+ (which has always been the case) what changes do you want? T6 battlesuits or increased move characteristics or something? A movement boost on most suits would be amazing, say 10" for crisis suits, commanders and ...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Have you seen some of the stratagems other armies got? They're not all good or super useful. Heck, that Ork one is terrible: it's 1/6 of your shots getting an extra 1/3 chance to hit. 10 shoota boys might get 1-2 extra hits... for 1 CP. Tempestus scions have it (sorta) as a free faction trait and i...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

That convo gives me a sinking feeling about our codex. It seems like they don't care about us if they are talking that dismissively, and without some core stat line changes I don't think we can be competitive. My poor Tau might be sitting on the shelf until 9th :( I really hope it was just a case o...

Re: Riptide support systems (new player)

All 3 of them are unkillable machines of death. The force multiplier abilities are peanuts compared to what they can do by themselves. I just mean that a ~900-point list with the two Chaos Primarchs would probably be stronger point-for-point than a ~1200 point list with all three. Mortarion and Mag...

Re: Riptide support systems (new player)

Sometimes I want to make an army of guilliman, magnus and mortarion, just to make space marine players taste their own medicine. Not sure if that's feasible though. I mean, from a tactical standpoint it would probably be worse than just taking Magnus and Morarion in a CSM army, but that's not to sa...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Having JSJ as a stratagem is useless. The whole point of JSJ was moving often with all your units to kite your enemies. I would never pay 1 CP for moving out of turn with a single unit. Let's assume that a 1 CP stratagem becomes the reality though. You could use a build with one mid-range XV8 unit ...

This is a discussion I've been meaning to start for a while now. What makes a winning list? To beat your opponent in Warhammer 40k, there are two very, very broad ways to go about it. First, you can bring a list that has an effective counter to every conceivable threat on the battlefield. usually th...
