Well, the Tau egg does have an advanced sensor suite, a jet pack, a massive gun, and heavy armor.

Re: 500pt list help

Remember that the Strike Teams, albeit being the same unit, count as two individual choices. That's what makes It might make a little more sense to list each squad, then the squad's wargear, if you want to be really detailed. It might get confusing otherwise. Also, your Strike Team squads have 9 mod...

Re: 500pt list help

It's the week 2 list subbing quad fusion commander for coldstar, and putting the 2pts onto the anti-flying tech for a stealth unit. I assume something like this then? HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters (160) Troops - 9x Fire Warriors (72) Troops - 9x Fire Warriors (72) Elites - 3x Stealthsuits, V...

Re: Hammer and Anvil 2k League List

I must say, this is a great start for a list. Before I give my thoughts on your list, I'll just answer some of your questions that you asked otherwise. First, on units, you're correct that the Riptide and Broadside are no longer that effective. In a large battery Broadsides can really deal serious d...

Can you quickly type up the list you're currently thinking about, Ion Rifles included for now? Thanks!

Re: 500pt list help

Victory! All the advice about deployment and charging really paid off. I was up against the Skitarii Start Collecting box set and I went second and still won. Rolling markerlights one at a time was a game changer, as was marking multiple units. Coldstar's mobility was awesome, but she was kind of i...

Re: first ever tournament 1500pts

Wow, that's a miracle! Free Drones! :P With those points, just add two Gun Drones to your CIB Commander and I'd call it good! That or, give 2 Pathfinders in each squad Ion Rifles.

Re: Playing against Grey Knights 1000 pts, please help

I'll throw in my two cents here. You're playing against an army that's famously elite, and uses a mix of medium infantry, Dreadnoughts, and tanks. Over 50% of your army is anti-tank. Was that intentional? You may want to have a little more anti-elite firepower (Plasma Rifles for the regular Marines,...

Re: Childhood player returning to the blue commies.

Somewhat banking on using LOS blocking terrain to hide the PAC Drones but obviously that's situational. Not so feasible i guess if they're deepstriking to tie the troops up in melee 1st turn. Perhaps if I'm to invest in the PAC drones I should pick up 4x4 Kroot Hound packs to deny that. Remember th...

Re: 2000 points. Can this be competitive?

I think this looks really good! I think Id take out the pathfinders for marker drones, better resistance and the ability to take the hit where needed is key! Remember though, Marker Drones cost 20% more than Pathfinders and you need to buy a Drone Controller somewhere to stick them with- that'll ch...

How to paint panel lines?

To paint panel lines on my infantry and tanks (for example, the line on the top of a Fire Warrior's helmet, the lines on their shields, or the thin grooves on a Hammerhead) what technique should I use? Should I carefully apply a black wash into the groove, then wipe away the excess? Or should I base...

Re: High potential understrengths?

It's a good question in that vehicles can have passengers or extra guns on them so how under-strength works with them can be unclear. For the Sunshark Bomber though, it's preeeeeeettty clear that you can't just take the drones. Maybe go without one or two of them, but to just take the drones and no...

Re: Flying units and melee combat

I wouldn't get hung up on a model not being able to pivot if it was surrounded. It seems pretty clear that the flying model that is in super sonic mode is supposed to be able to move unimpeded. You just get a chance to bop it with units that have the fly keyword because they can reach it. I think t...

Re: 2K mixed Tau

This looks like a solid, straightforward list. All I'd suggest would be to drop the individual Drones- with those, you're just giving away First Blood. Also, I'd downgrade the CIB Commanders to have Gun Drones and not Marker Drones. Take the 26 points of savings and give your Pathfinders 3x Ion Rifl...

Re: 2000 points. Can this be competitive?

If you're trying to make a competitive list, then the meta would say to drop the Riptides, sadly. The best gun they can use is the Heavy Burst Cannon w/ ATS, and I'd take one Riptide maximum. We'll keep one Riptide because I assume you like the model, but the other will go. Also, there's not much ne...

Go for it! Paint all the vespid armor and guns your basic armor/camo scheme, and paint the Strain Leader's helmet the same color as the helmets on your Shas'ui!
