Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Just one last thing regarding the Ion Blasters. Your list says 8 but do I actually only need 6? (3 XV8's with 2x each) Will get the price down a little. You can arm XV8s with 2x CIBs and 1x ATS each instead of all CIBs, it's cheaper and similarly powerful, however, all CIBs ends up being a more com...

Re: Sa'Cea Sept Panels

Thanks :) Didn't know the sept was just the markings etc. Always seen certain colour schemes used with certain septs. I do like the bluish grey scheme, so will probably give it a go. Maybe keep grey panels and then the commander with the sept colour panels and antennae on helmets. Yeah, the "s...

Re: Can you attach a spare Hammerhead turret to a devilfish??

If you assemble a Devilfish without gluing on the cupola or the Burst Cannon, and buy a Hammerhead turret & the Targeting Array on eBay, you can easily make a TX chassis that you can use as a Hammerhead or as a Devilfish. To make a Devilfish, pop in the cupola and attach the Burst Cannon to the ...

Re: 2k points for casual gaming

Makes sense. Here's what I'd do in that case. Give the Fusion Commander a pair of Shield Drones. Drop the Guardian Drone from the Breachers, as well as their Markerlight. Switch the Riptide's Stimulant Injector for a Target Lock. Switch the XV9s' Gun Drones for Shield Drones. Replace the Firesight M...

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

If you're bringing a Cadre Fireblade, you need more than 10 models worth of Pulse weapons. So in this case, run those 6 Gun Drones with the Fireblade and his Fire Warriors, and that would be a decent formation. For the time being, give the Stealthsuits a Homing Beacon (+20), combine the Fire Warrior...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

I agree with Panzer's point- let's make those changes. Also, I think there's too much upgrades and wargear on those Stealthsuits. Let's relax the Stealthsuit wargear too, add some more Pathfinders, and I'd also go for a full-Flamer kit on those other XV8s. Here's how I'd imagine the list: HQ - Comma...

Re: 1600 - almoust horde :)

Looks like a fun list! However, I think we can reduce the number of drops a bit- let's take Fire Warriors in groups of 10, and Gun Drones in groups of 6. Those numbers work pretty well. Also, with such a huge number of infantry, Aun'va would be fantastic for this army. Overall though we need more an...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

The idea for this list- Manta Strike-deployed units backed up by a Stormsurge- is a good one. However, the other units don't seem to support it all that well. At the end of the day, I don't think the list has enough .Let's see what we can do. HQ - Coldstar Commander w/ High-Yield Burst Cannon, Missi...

Re: 2k points for casual gaming

Looks like a solid list- however, what's your meta like? Is it all infantry? This list seems to pack an absolutely massive amount of anti-infantry firepower. You have a Fire Warrior/Fireblade gunline, three XV9s with DBBCs/Gun Drones/ATS, an anti-infantry Riptide, and a few Gun Drones in for good me...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I definitely see how the firepower can be an issue going toe to toe with a las predator. It's absolutely tough. You either need to use Commanders w/ 4x Fusion Blasters to take care of the Predators, or XV8s/Commanders w/ Cyclic Ion Blasters in larger numbers. But the problem is there isn't much of ...

Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

I use two fusion commanders and a CIB team of 3 crisis suits as my anti-vehicle/monster along with 3 shield drones and two marker drones for the team. I seen this combination time and time again take down with marker light support knights and even baneblades by themselves with good rolls. In some c...

Maybe you just got confused about ATS? People commonly talk about ATS being viable only on CIR Ghostkeels but not on FC Ghostkeels.

If you ask around on reddit, in r/40klore, I bet people could tell you more about Tau starships and 40k starships in general over there, they're absurdly knowledgeable.

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

So even if the Target Lock and the Networked Markerlight don't take up a hardpoint, it definitely only comes with two hardpoints to play around with. Yeah, that's absolutely true- could be a relic from when Commanders could only take 3 weapons. Anyway, with that in mind I think I'm going to pull th...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Thanks for all the feedback! I like your list. I slightly mentioned earlier I have to wait on getting a regular commander (FB). It is a priority to obtain but I rather buy Stormsurge(a more exciting unit for me) Friday and I can't swing both. That's okay! We can drop the Commander but we'll need ano...

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

A few thoughts. If nobody is taking tanks, he shouldn't need a 4x fusion commander. With no Lascannon Predators, Repulsors, and sneaky Anti-Tank units hidden in light transports, I think things like Carnifexes, Hive Tyrants, Y'vahras, Dreadknights, etc will be very powerful in this tournament. The F...
