Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Update as of 12/10:

Six Fire Warriors finished, and three more underway. I've also started three Stealthsuits and seven Gun Drones.

Hopefully these models will be finished this week, and I can move on to the Fireblade(s) and Devilfish soon!

Re: Onmyou's Motivation Service

Update as of 12/10: I've finished six Fire Warriors this week, and made progress on several other units. I assembled, primed, and magnetized seven Gun Drones, basecoated and started three Stealthsuits, and have three more Fire Warriors almost finished. Here are the in-progress models: https://i.imgu...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Can you post a primary source for the T'au warp presense? I'm afraid my memory isn't good enough to give you an exact source, and I don't have the old Tau codex on me anymore... however, if you want sources on Tau and the Warp, feel free to ask in the Library! http://www.advancedtautactica.com/view...

Re: How to make Pulse Carbines viable for Fire Warriors

...and not that useful at all since PG impose a negative modifier until the end of the turn. So you only ever use them in overwatch. Here's a situation that has probably never happened, but it's theoretically possible for some units (like Chaos Helbrutes) to make attacks in their opponent's shootin...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

You math isn't correct here. A single XV8 with 3 Burst Cannons has half the firepower of an equal number of points of Gun Drones. Did you TLDR? I neversaid anything about burst cannons crisis teams. Sorry about that- here's what confused me: "To equal the same damage that the crisis team produ...

Re: 2500Pts laughs in Y’vhara

Victory for the Tau. That was a bloody fight. Much casualty’s on both sides. There was nearly no long range fire battles. Everything was fought at close range. But the devastating Tau firepower was too much. I think the problem was, that he couldn’t screen my Commabders sand they dropped where I wa...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

As Arka and Panzer have mentioned, gun drones and fire warriors do strength 5 shooting much better. XV-8s suffer from their BS so most weapons are better on a Commander, hence the Flamer loadout. To equal the same damage that the crisis team produces with strength 5 shots on a t7 /+3 save target, y...

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...

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...
