Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

First, I don't know what other units he will be running. His declared faction is "chaos demons" for the league, meaning at least 1001 of his 2000 points need to be from the demons army. Other than that, he told me is running "all tzeentch baby" and no Magnus. Thats unfortunately...

Re: Y'vahra or not?

My current list is the "Why Choose" list and I actually have a stormsurge AND Yvahra in the list. I like this list idea! I'm sure it gives the enemy pause when it comes to alpha-strike target priority... which monster do you focus on first? As Arka0415 mentioned the Stormsurge just has wa...

Re: 'Ninja Tau' and the New Codex

The juiciest Strategems I've seen yet have been in Adeptus Mechanicus and Imperial Guard, I think: (AdMech) Elimination Volley - Grants +1 to hit rolls for certain units when they are near each other. Fire Warriors and Sniper Drones? XV8s and Stealthsuits? There could be some interesting combination...

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

This is less than the Strike Team equivalent which is only 27 shots for 216 points. The analysis departs when you figure in the ranges, though. Fire Warriors are all about getting in to rapid-fire range though. Is the target outside of 18"? The Fire Warriors are better because the XV8s are out...

Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

I will continue to state that my issue is: A vehicle or monster will get a cover save if obscured by terrain, and standing in it, yes, but won't get a cover save if the same amount of the model is obacured but the model is not in terrain. The model does or does not get cover based purely on the dir...

Re: Y'vahra or not?

I can see the benefit of switching to xv-9s from xv-88s with the Y'vahra. The mobility and ability to focus fire. Yup, the idea is to keep the list aggressive and always on the move. You can get anti-tank from the Fusion Commanders and the Y'Vahra (it's a great tank-hunter!) and with all of this mo...

Still not putting the Fireblade with his Gun Drones? Be careful with that, and keep the Devilfish together then!

Anyway, good luck! :biggrin:

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

Nooooooooo... the great Arka0415 thinks my load out as non-viable ... sad panda Ah, sorry about that! No hard feelings! The problem I see is that the build is mainly designed to hit hordes with six Flamers, but the "backup" weapon actually costs more than the main loadout. While the may c...

Re: 2000 pts vs. Tzeentch Demons (no Magnus)

Looks like a solid list! Let's just tweak a few things- split the Gun Drones down, fix the Commander loadouts, give the Coldstar an ATS, etc. The suggestions people have given in this thread have been good. Generally Daemons don't have armor saves, do you know if he's running all Daemons or it there...

Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

If you want this as a tournament list, you should make everything as uniform as you can to mess with enemy target priority, and get everything into that 18" maximum firepower sweet spot. Also, we only need land a couple of Markerlight hits per turn so we probably don't need as many Markerlights...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I can't see an abundance of melee weapons or even ranged relic weapons due to our considerable choice of weapons already, but the idea of a str6 ap -2 burst cannon or a relic CIB would be pretty cool. Honestly, this would be exciting just from the modeling standpoint- designing your own souped-up B...

Re: 1500pts vs AdMech

It was a fun list I am struggling a little with 8th due to my older build and no magnetised weapons. Gotcha. For the time being, proxy some of the more competitive units to get a feel for the difference, then when the Codex comes out, start looking into ways you can modify the models! They may not ...

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

Here's my take on viable XV8 builds: Competitive Builds: 2x CIB + 1x ATS (All purpose anti-infantry and anti-vehicle) 2x Fusion Blaster + 1x Flamer (Anti-vehicle alpha strike) 3x Flamer (Anti-infantry alpha strike) Situational Builds: 3x CIB (Slightly inefficient for its cost) 2x CIB + 1x Flamer (Go...

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

I was thinking about that as well, but I don't think it's a very strong loadout. I think that 3x Flamers (on 3 XV8's) is too little to make a good impact on bigger infantry units (10+) and 6 would do the job nicely to get enough kills while 9 is overkill. So while you are within 8" for your ta...

Re: 1500 pt event list building

I think I can get behind that you made list very much. I will try to think of other alternatives still, just in case there's a better option. Unfortunately your list has a lot of very nice selling points(compliment). :-p. I can't believe I didn't notice the stormsurge didn't have the ATS. Great cat...

Re: Y'vahra or not?

So the idea here is to avoid using infantry? Fair enough! For a sit-back-and-shoot list the Stormsurge is great (especially with the Shield Generator to keep it alive), and for an aggressive list the Y'vahra is a fantastic option too. You may find that, as far as other Forgeworld units are concerned...

Re: Comparing Mechanized Unit Builds

I presume this is calculated without a drone controller present next to the drones (to lazy to check the math). If you manage to get a DC in the general area of the disembarked drones, while increasing the overall cost of the force, their effectiveness should skyrocket above the Breacher options. S...
