Re: Do the Tau make use of wheels anywhere?

Not so much that it is beneath them. Anti-grav tech is superior in every way to the wheel and all its forms. ... Someone mentioned up thread that they would "KISS" (Keep it simple, stupid) and I get that. But when you can mass produce anti-grav tech and make it work on pretty much any too...

Re: [Battalion + Spearhead] Interim 2,500 Points List vs. AdMech

Looks like you've already settled on the idea for your list. Are you looking to improve it, or just to post it here for record? I look forward to seeing pictures too!

Re: Need help retooling for more competitive play

This looks like a much better list!! I can't take the credit for that lots of the changes were made from guides on the site you and others have put together, this site is a treasure trove of good advice. That's totally fine! No copyrighted lists here- it's all for the Greater Good. In fact, if some...

Re: T'au in Narrative and Open Play

While I feel like most of us are here for competitive play, I'd be curious to hear how many players do narrative/open games. Looking at the missions, it seems like Tau will have an advantage in anything really aggressive- if the rules give bonuses to quick units with good firepower (like in Meat Gri...

Re: Need help retooling for more competitive play

I completely forgot about the chapter approved stuff. :eek: The relic is free so that's should have been in there but what do you think about the warlord traits, better than the mainbook's ignore damage one for a fusion commander? Yeah, the new Stratagem is great and the Relic is good. The Warlord ...

Re: 2500Pts laughs in Y'vahra

Do you have enough models to make the list I suggested? Or are there some changes you want to make? I wasn’t sure regarding the Gun Drones, but I looked up today. I have enough. In the first draft I had those Broadsides in. I thought they would fit good in my backfield camp. The drones would fit to...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

It doesn't need to be different from what you already have. Hammerheads and Broadsides aren't all that good, so feel free to add more Fusion Commanders, more CIBs on whatever platforms, or maybe a Stormsurge if you have one. Stormsurge would be great with all the mortal wounds from Destroyer missil...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

Are there rules for custodes in 8th or are you playing 7th? Yeah there are. Rules for them are in Index Imperium 2. Haha, there are Index rules, not even a Codex, and Custodes are insane. The best way to take them down is to outrage them, but you'd need a veritable battery of Lascannons to even scr...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

I admit I've never even met a Custodes player, but this seems like a tough list. I think the trick here will be to focus fire and make good trades. Focus the firepower of all of your Commanders on one Land Raider. If you crack it, focus everything else on the squad inside. Taking down one Land Raide...

Re: 2500Pts laughs in Y'vahra

So those are some really good points you made here. 11 command points... that’s a hole lot of command points to spend. With the new CA and our stratagem do you think I need marker lights even on Firewarriors? It's a ton! You can use the stratagem every turn and use a command re-roll every turn, an ...

Re: Returning to Tau: Mechanized Infantry List Competitive?

The advice in this thread is all sound! Remember that the Codex isn't out yet, so this all could change . However, as the Index meta currently stands, Commander spam, Gun Drone spam, mechanized Breachers and Gun Drones, and Stealthsuits are all good. Here are the "good" units in the Tau ar...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

T'au don't have a warp presence. Neither do the Sisters of Silence. The Sisters have some anti-psychic rules, and we get to stand there and get bonked. Why? The Tau and the Sisters of Silence are very different. Sisters of Silence are "blanks" or "nulls", they not only have a ne...

Re: Balancing turn one

So after several games my friends and I have noticed that unless you deep strike most of your army, the player with turn one wins. Looks like you solved your own question. You need to build your army in such a way that you mitigate the advantage of having turn 1. Transports, stratagems, reserves, a...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

My recommendations is the Y’vahra it can deal with a lemanruss or similar in one round asuming overcharge. If you feel luck the Flamer itself can (barring lucky rolls) take it out a lemanruss by itself, giving the ion weapon room to fire at something else. On top, it is very sturdy especial if you ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Also maybe a small reduction in the cost of the frame. The whirlwind is statistically almost identical but -2 wound no FLY but it's almost 30pts cheaper The rail cannon is double the cost of a Lascannon and not worth 2 so should be 10-13pts cheaper imho Also if gun drones go up and burst cannons go...
