Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Really? I couldn't care less about those. What we need is unit cost reduction, not barely remarkable traits... It looks like no faction is getting major cost reductions or major competitiveness changes, with the exception of some major alterations for Forgeworld units. Wait for the codex for that, ...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

What a disappointment. Hey, it's not as bad as you think. One of the Warlord Traits is decent, the Relic is great, and the Markerlight stratagem is even better. In addition we got FW Hammerheads at the correct price, no competitive units got nerfed, ITC rules are in for rolling for first turn, and ...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Lastly: Understrength units can only be taken in Auxiliary Detachments. We've known this already but it does raise an interesting question. Is it worth spending 1 CP for a Monat XV8? Even more, because of the exploitable wording, a model could advance, and then fire a heavy weapon without any penal...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Warlord Trait 1: Exemplar of Kauyon You can re-roll failed hit rolls as long as you have not moved. If they moved,they lose trait until start of next turn. I can't imagine any warlords that could viably use this Trait. Missile Pod Commanders, maybe? Warlord Trait 1: Exemplar of Mont'ka Warlord can ...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Just frustrated. I've been hoping for Tau to get good since before they launched when I did testing and they were over nerfed. I still think we won't get any buffs or if they do they will make sure we stay bottom tier. Actually I am expecting nerfs. I'm frustrated too. However, this new CA book wil...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

The other possibility is that our codex is to be one of the first released in 2018. So GW are waiting until then to release point changes. Blood Angels aren't on the list and their codex is due any time now (though I appreciate that standard SM are and that effects BA). Ya know, just hoping! Oh you...

Yeah, I'm not kidding about that +755-point increase. It was 745 before and now it's 1500.. base.

Re: Are there any Tau civilians???

Ha, this is something I've give a lot of thought to as well. For some reason, people tend to think "Fire = Soldiers, Water = Diplomats, Earth = Engineers, Air = Pilots", however that would yield an absurdly... narrow... society. Here's my view of what civilian roles would be: Ethereal Cast...

Re: Need help building a 1500 pt army.

I'd be happy to help! In my close group of friends in our group chat they have nicknamed me "*** Fish" and the trash talking never stops lol. So I want to build an army to crush them. That doesn't sound too "friendly"! Hopefully it's in all in good fun though. Anyway, let's check...

Re: GW Live Stream: Markerlight Strategem

Hold on a second- I didn't watch the stream itself, I just read the recap online. The poster on SpikeyBits said it was +1 Markerlight Token. Is there any evidence that it'ss +1+D3 Markerlight Tokens?

Re: 1500pt VS Harlequins

One thing I would change is Longstrike, not only cos of high strength weapon and their 4+ invuns, but the fact that he didn't hit a god damn thing. I rolled a 2 for all seekers (including CP re-rolls), quins have -1 to-hit on vehicles. and his rail gun rolled a 2 as well (with CP re-rolls). Then he...

Re: Steg's Lists thread: on to 2k?

But why the choice to fit FusionBlasters on the StealthSuits? I do notice the "lack" of tank killng power besides the QFC but was thinking of using the GhostKeel to fill that gap with fitting it Fusion Collider and 2x FB, Shield Gen and TargetLock Something I've been doing recently. Basic...

Re: Advice for 2000pt Local tournament list

I thought about the target lock for the Y'vahra, but I thought that the survivability was more important, plus for the first couple turns there should be the three markerlights to ignore the movement penalty. Dyou think the +1 to hit while moving is worth losing the survivability? I know the pathfi...

GW Live Stream: Markerlight Strategem

Edit: According to the SpikeyBits article, the strategem is +1 Markerlight. According to the livestream, it may be +1+D3 Markerlights. If you have any evidence to share that supports either, please post! Supposedly GW revealed one of the new Tau stratagems on the most recent livestream: T’au Strata...

Not sure what happened to my last post, but here's this: http://i.4cdn.org/tg/1511568671097.png Not sure what's the source, but it's only FW models, most points do not change from the last FAQ and other points values seem rounded to 100s, it's probably something like a prototype print to see if eve...

Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

I can't remember if we're allowed to post the actual leaks here, so I'll hold off for now. Anyway, the points costs for the new Chapter Approved book have been leaked, and as far as Tau are concerned only the Forgeworld unit points were posted. This means that either (a) Tau will not be getting poi...
