Re: Onmyou's Motivation Service

Very quick and dirty model for a colour test, no lenses or weathering done yet, and I'm undecided on a colour for the little tau 'gyroscope' screwhead patterns on the guns ... Feedback would be much appreciated, obviously the sept is meant to be sa'cea. I'm aware my sept markings are scruffy and th...

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Army List

Do you really have that much of an issue with the DC bubble that you need 3 of them for 4 squads? I generally operate them as a giant cloud of drones, which scares the holy piss out of people, and can get 6 or 7 squads covered with relative ease. This list isn't trying for a drone bubble, there are...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

Man this has gone off topic a bit, i don't have a devilfish so all this is a moot point for me. Unless ive missed something, the recon drone's deny cover only affects nearby pathfinders, so my understanding would be the fish doesnt get the bonus Here's the summary: 1. Pathfinders near a Recon Drone...

Very fast, but doesn't quite have the firepower of a regular Commander. As a second Commander it's great, but for your first always take a Fusion Commander or CIB Commander.

Re: [Project] Steg's T'au, Sa'cea Sept in snow camo

Thanks, the grey-green as you call is it, is celestra grey basecoat with nuln oil wash.. I could do a recess shade, but the lines are so damn small. But I do build up the white-white on that. The yellowísh whit is build up on the red-brownish parts I defined on the model. That's celesta grey? It lo...

Re: New member

Thanks, I'll give that list a try and see how I want to tweak my army. People I usually face field 2-3 dreads + razorbacks so I think the Fusions should be fine. Would the 6 Stealth Suits with BC+ATS and markerlights be good enough for elite killing? Give it a go! I think that, since you have Fusio...

Re: 1000 points suits list

I just realized my suggested list had some typos in it- I don't recommend using that many Fusion Blasters! New list here & corrected in the earlier post: - HQ - Commander w/ 3x Cyclic Ion Blasters, ATS; 2x Shield Drones (154) Elites - 5x Stealthsuits w/ Fusion Blaster, 4x Burst Cannons, Homing B...

Re: T'au 2000pts- first MC list

yea it definitely does, i think since that is the case with the brigade i will have to rethink the core of it so i can run it in a 3 detachment format. will have to rethink it but it will probably have to fit into a battalion + 2x Outrider Are your local tournaments usually limited to three detachm...

Re: T'au 2000pts- first MC list

from what i had read the brigade was 3~5 fast attack or heavy support, not a requirement of both so thanks for correcting that. i will have to try out a few different ideas to put it together as i really feel that in a game with a lot of bad rolls i will need the cp to have spare for those fusion c...

Re: 1250 Highlander Tournament

The commander thing falls under the 1 of any units and no varients of the units thus 1 type of dreadnought, 1 type of captain, 1 type of deamon prince, etc. the rules are pretty laid out to make is so you literally cannot spam anything really. The rules would consider Commander Shadowsun and an XV8...

Re: New member

I don't have a Coldstar but I do have 2 Fusion Commanders. Is it not worth taking Cadre at 1K point level games? How about scaling up to 1.5K? I'm thinking adding more Commanders, Fire Warriors and Pathfinders. Ha, my mistake, I just forgot to write the Fireblade's entry into the list. I'll add the...

Re: T'au 2000pts- first MC list

This is an interesting idea- it's halfway between full-on powergame spam, and a casual gaming list! If you're looking to make it a little more competitive, here are some pointers: 1. Keep specialized loadouts on Commanders 2. Don't take Support Turrets 3. Avoid single drones, and if you need pairs o...

Re: 1250 Highlander Tournament

Unfortunately we have been very straight told 1 commander no getting around that Just as a specific Tau nerf? Weird. So, the reason I went CiB commander is because in this type of points list with the restrictions on detachments hes only most likely going to be effective as a QFC for about 1 Unit, ...

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Army List

Not a huge fan of the fusion hiding in the stealths... Thinking about your advice some more, I'm considering a new way to build up the infantry firebase. I'm keeping the Homing Beacon on the Stealthsuits, but I'm no longer using them as a vehicle to deploy the Coldstar with. Instead, I'll keep the ...

Re: 1250 Highlander Tournament

The Highlander tournament style is definitely a strange one, but it sounds like an interesting list to work with. I think you're definitely off to the right start! Commanders, Stealthsuits, Ghostkeels, etc. will all be good choices in this sort of game. That said though, I don't think some of the ch...

New FAQ: No Deep Strike for Magnus or Mortarion

Just a PSA for anyone following the new Chaos Daemons codex; due to the change in the Denizens of the Warp stratagem and the reveal of the infantry-restricted Webway Infiltration stratagem, it looks like neither Magnus nor Mortarion will be deep-striking 9" away from Tau lines any time soon. In...

Re: 750 point list - tactics and modifications

Glad you like it! I take it the primary role of the stealthsuits and their two drones is to be objective campers? Maybe on an enemy objective early on if it looks like I can push them off with the assistance of the XV8 and Commander. The Stealthsuits represent your main land-based (i.e. not deep str...
