Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

Stormtroopers 6+ at half range gives an extra shot Just imagine how utterly broken that would make the Fireblade+Gun Drone combo. 12 Gun Drones and a Fireblade put out 72 shots now, and 24 hits. With the 6+ it becomes 84 shots and 28 hits. With 5 Markerlight hits now it's 96 shots and 56 hits. With...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Also... why is harder to get CP with T'au than with space marines? or with Eldar? or GK? or Necrons? I think we have 3 very interesting Troop choices, really different from each other, and that with one or two tweaks on weapon profiles, points values, special rules and Doctrines/Stratagems, all 3 o...

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

I missed the game. How did it go down? Do we have a chance against either of them? Are Custodes rules justified given their low model count? Anything stand out? Here's a bit of the rundown: http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2018/01/codex-thousand-sons-1st-rules-changes-revealed.html Thousand Sons invu...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I could see this being a stratagem, actually. The whole idea of Tau getting a huge host of flavorful abilities is so exciting, I have to say. That would be fine but remember that our army can not only relay on Stratagems as CP are very limited. For every other army Stratagems are cherry on the top ...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

By that logic, reinforcements shouldn't multiply drones and yet they do. Just because you didn't pay for something doesn't mean some weird game mechanic can't give it to you for free. I don't think anything multiplies drones. With the exception of abilities that specifically give you models for fre...

Hey, it could happen! If so, exciting stuff, moreso about the 21" rapid fire :)

Re: Demon counter list 2000pts

I want to keep the sunshark. I find it very flexible and valuable at point denial. Really good at taking out Small Units. That's on top of dealing MW to heavy infantry. Like you said smite spam will probably down it… if I'm over aggressive with it. So I dropped the XV9s I have 2 Ion commanders now ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What if a vehicle that was reduced to 0 wounds by a railgun automatically exploded, no dice roll? Yes, I would like to see this. Would make it very thematic and give another dimension to the game! I could see this being a stratagem, actually. The whole idea of Tau getting a huge host of flavorful a...

Here's the ruling:

wounds if they were inflicted by mortal wounds?

The ability already exists in a few armies. Blood Angels have a stratagem for it, and I think vanilla Terminators can do it too. So there's a precedent already.

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Yeah, I think the same, that this is the intented rule, and I play it like that too. But I also think that to be a "unsaved wound", the wound must have passed a saving throw (failed), so a mortal wound is not a "unsaved wound". I think in this case "suffered wound" &qu...

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Well, they are written differently, and Sense of Stone doesn't says anything about Mortal Wounds (which Stims does) and rather says "suffers an unsaved wound", not "loses a wound" like other FnP abilities says. I think RAI is a FnP, but RAW sounds to me like something inbeetwen....

Re: Demon counter list 2000pts

Here's a quick idea I came up with, modified a little from your list: - HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176) HQ - Commander w/ 3x Cyclic Ion Blasters, Multi-Tracker; 2x Gun Drones (148) HQ - Commander w/ 3x Cyclic Ion Blasters, Multi-Tracker; 2x Gun Drones (148) HQ - Commande...

Re: Demon counter list 2000pts

I like this idea, but, I think you're missing drones in a lot of places. We can protect the valuable models in this list by adding Gun and Shield Drones to the Commanders and XV9s. Though I agree with you, the list seems to lack heavy anti-infantry firepower since Daemons are likely to bring Plagueb...

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Hello, I read in other group about the Sense of Stone ability if count as FnP or not, since the wording says "Whenever an affected unit suffers an unsaved wound, roll a D6. On a 6, that wound is ignored." It says "unsaved wound" not "loses a wound". So it trigger after...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Nah, you only payed for one so you only get one. You payed for the ability to place a turret, which belongs to the unit. If you split the unit, each model inherits the unit's abilities. Except that just can't be the case. You pay for one turret, the options text explains the unit can take one turre...
