Re: New member

Welcome to ATT! You've come to the right place! :biggrin:

Do you already have an army, or are you looking for the right models to buy first?

Re: My first 2000 Pt. army

I already have the start collecting and a Broadside from 7th ed. The new models I want ahead and bought 2 more start collecting sets to get the crisis suits and the troops. I also got long strike and his tank, 2 commanders, and Darkstrider, as well as a pathfinder team. Okay! Sounds like a lot of m...

Re: New to Tau, need help building army

Great suggestions here. I have my Crisis suits magnetized and have been playing around with the flamers. I need to get some more bits when budget permits for CIBs, plus would like to get a couple more commanders. I've been toying with the idea of taking apart my Coldstar so I can magnetize between ...

Re: My first 2000 Pt. army

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Edit 1: They have Las Vegas open day on this weekend. So, the new codex will be announced there. Hunh.

Re: My first 2000 Pt. army

I remember reading that broadsides and bigger as well as the stealth suits cant do as much for the point cost. I also want to build a very well rounded army because I don't expect to buy new models soon. Broadsides and Riptides, currently, are very over-costed. We hope the Codex improves them thoug...

Re: My first 2000 Pt. army

I currently don't have much in my collection, Just an ethereal, a strike/breacher team, 3 crisis suits and a broadside. Ah, you're looking to expand then? If you're trying to save money the Rapid Insertion Cadre might be a great purchase. You'd be adding Stealthsuits and a Ghostkeel but those could...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Holy cow, Thousand Sons codex pre-order next week... That leaves a huge gap for February. Now as far as I know T'au is still mid march, but that let me wonder what's happening the last three weeks of Feb...? Makes me rather happy as someone building a TS army. I wouldn't be surprised if mid-Februar...

Re: namegiver's Shi'ar Sept Project Log

Thanks. The head is a Red Dog resin bit, is that the Paulson sculpt? Yeah, those heads were on Paulson's old site years ago, and updated for the new suits on the new Red Dog site. The base is a bit of a Frankenstein. I've been experimenting with sand, ballast, GW Agrellan Earth and cork trying to f...

Re: My first 2000 Pt. army

Looks like you already have a solid collection- it definitely won't be hard to work this into a great list. Gunrock's double-battalion list is a great start, but does suffer a little from the non-synergy between Darkstrider and minimum-sized Breacher teams. And Gunrock, you're right- the list packs ...

Re: About last night's game (Custodes vs 1k sons)

I think Magnus will be just as good as he is now if not more so with access to a -1 to hit power on top of +1 invuln and warptime. Combined with +6" range on his super smite and he can really reach out and bad touch us. Gotcha. And a TSons player only needs to take a handful of Pink Horrors an...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

A theory that a heard from a friend concerning the codex love for Imperium and chaos armies is a follows. When there was only index playing an imperium soup army was a valid (and somewhat broken) strategy. But now with every codex that the Imperium has gotten this advantage is fleeting because you ...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

Whats the benfit to running 2 pathfinder squads? im guessing can avoid getting swarmed in a single charge, more mobile and can see more of the field, but would offer up another potential victory point. I'd like to bring up a point about pathfinder marker light in general. I think they're best used ...

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

Sorry, have to go one step back again :roll: So the only way my Commander can use the 4+ save is, when he self has equipped a shield generator? And Shield Drone can use the 4+ save instead of the 5+ FNP when not using savior protocol and being the original target? Thanks again hope I will be less c...

Re: Possibly a dumb idea. 25 power tanky madness

As long as you can kill the enemy's main anti-tank threat on turn one you'll probably win. However if they have any kind of kiting ability, you'll be in trouble. I'm actually curious to see how this would work. If they go for kiting I'll use y'varha's forgotten ability: Nova charged move. It'll get...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

It's not that mechanized infantry are bad objective grabbers, just that there are so many other ways to get on to an objective without the overhead cost of a transport. What worries me is the devilfish in and of itself has very little offensive potential, it's essentially a points investment in inc...
