Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

That's a lot more bitz :o Thanks again for all the help. Got everything I need now. Lots of gluing and painting ahead :D Good luck! Here's a tip- paint your Pulse Rifles and your Fire Warriors' shoulder pads before gluing them on. It'll be much easier to paint the torso, back of the neck, and inner...

Re: Can I overcharge my Riptide's Nova Reactor twice a turn?

Hello, Title is self-explanatory. Can I do it? And take two mortal wounds of course. Thank you To the extent of my knowledge, when you use the Nova Reactor you get to pick an ability for the duration of the turn. Think of it like turning a switch on and off- you can't turn it on again without first...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

That link does work now, cheers. Might get a bit pricey with international shipping though (UK) so will probably be one of the last things I buy before completing the list. If you don't want to get CIBs that's okay, there are other builds that are decent for XV8s to use, such as Fusion Blaster/Flam...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Looks good. Not too worried about competiveness yet to be honest. Darkstrider looks pretty nice as well :o Darkstrider is a great character- he really buffs Breachers, especially at short range when firing at T4 units like Necron Warriors or Space Marines! Unlike a Fireblade though, Darkstrider onl...

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

Their stats are comparable to the Astra Militarium Conscripts For a tactica, I wouldn't make that comparison. Fire Warriors are vastly different compared to Conscripts. Fire Warriors have a higher BS, much higher LD, a better Armor Save; on their weapons they have better range and much better stren...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

They are really weak actually. One of the regulars to my gaming group plays Death Guard, and he's a really good player. Problem is, his army sucks. Now I have nothing against Death Guard. They are a really interesting faction of chaos, being worshipers of the literal source of imperial guardsmen's ...

You mention berzerkers.


Really corrupt Space Wolves maybe? There's a Dark Angels joke in here somewhere. Anyway, it looks like they played the game against Chaos, or else it was doubles against Space Wolves / Chaos.

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Before we fine-tune anything, can you clarify the rules for the tournament a little? The 1/2/3 point bonuses- are they added to your kill point score? Or, at the end of the game, do you get bonus points that add toward your overall tournament score? I mean, if you win and don't use vehicles, you ge...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Didn't think Kroot were very good. Do like the models though, and they seem to be a decent screening type unit. Playstyle wise I'm not sure yet, guess it depends on what I can get away with in terms of the models I have now? Probably something quite mobile or Battlesuit/Mech heavy. :D Not too keen ...

Re: 'Code Of Fire' Saturation list

Yep PL is less granular than points- some small things have big impacts, and vice versa. So, we need to find places where we can make the less-granular PL system work for us. Let's see what we can do. First, small Drone units are fairly inefficient. 1PL for two Drones on Fireblades really isn't wor...

Re: 2k MotF Podcast List

Also, for your XV8s... if you're taking the weak option of Plasma Rifles, you need to give them as many as possible- even 9 is somewhat weak though. Go with 9x PR + 6x Drones at the very least. If possible, go with Cyclic Ion Blasters, they'll give the squad a lot more punch. The problem with the B...

Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

@Arka0415 Are small drone squads that bad? With your suggestions, I'm losing a lot of marker drones. This list doesn't have much in the way of markerlights. Also, are the pathfinder special drones to be avoided too? Marker Drones are very easy to kill, especially when they die without a save due to...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

The battleforce doesn't have any kroot though, and they're a little bit hard to find right now (Changing something in the new codes maybe?) Love the models though. On the plus side, there are 3 XV8's in the battleforce box. So maybe I just need Kroot, a commander, fireblade and some fire warriors. ...

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Sorry, didn't see that was one of the rules for the scenario. Silly special rules for a 500 point game. :P It gets really weird the higher the tournament goes. Which is kinda cool? You have to tailor your lists to it. But having a 1pt for killing a vehicle and 3pts for not bringing vehicles is real...

Re: Questionable use for countefire defense system

I know it's technically allowed, but would it be worth the points to mount the counterfire defense system on a stealth 'vre with the markerlight? It's not a huge increase in the odds of getting that markerlight hit, and even if you do re-rolling ones won't net that many more. But it only costs 14 p...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Yeah, calling it "morale" or "leadership" does make it seem a little strange. Space Marines who "flee" are escorting their wounded comrades off the battlefield. Chaos Daemons that "flee" fade back into warp even though they'd want to keep fighting; the warp is...

In my list, yeah, that's what I'd do. However, in Multitallented's original list, I assume they'd put the 5x Drone, 4x Drone, and Fireblade + 2x Drone units in there?
