Re: Ghostkeel tactica

A Velocity Tracker is also monstrously powerful against hover tanks like Repulsors and Wave Serpents. +1 to hit and no Hard to Hit penalty means you can easily get 2+ re-rolling against a priority target. Hi Arka, how do you circumvent the Hard To Hit penalty? Is that built into the Velocity Tracke...

From what Haechi has said before, remember, there are some great buffs, powerful rules, and new choices that balance it all out. :D

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My only minor grievance is I wanted a brigade detachment but I use 2 commanders atm, I've always had 2 commanders so a tad miffed :sad: Funny that, same here. Though, just bring a 7th Troops choice and you can field your second Commander as a Brigade + Patrol army. Also can't believe that basically...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Sorry, that was a bit confusing. Savior Protocols is the same as before, but happens only on a 2+. If people are already complaining about T’au, here a few negative things haha. 1 commander per detachment No changes to the markerlight table No improvement to BS across the board Railguns are the sam...

Okay, you've gotten me curious! :D I'd love to hear more about this list- if you want, make a thread over in Cadre Building and explain how this totally unique lists works. I'm sure more than a few people would be interested!

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Talk is reaching the wider community and even with just the barest hints the internet is begining to tear up at the thought of buffed Tau. For all we know this dex is bad and the buffs make no impact in the meta. Despite that the tears begin. Well I hope we are buff enough to at least justify the h...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

Aw jeez I must've forgotten to put in the Devilfish Configurations. But, you guessed right, but instead of pathfinders I have Strike Teams in place. Devilfish 1: Fireblade, Ethereal, 5x Fire Warriors, 5x Fire Warriors, Recon Drone Devilfish 2: 7x Breachers, 5x Fire Warriors, Recon Drone Devilfish 3...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Though the actual bodyguards rule is you take the 2+ after failing saves, against ap- weapons this would make saviour Protocol hilariously strong Forgot that- that would make Savior Protocols immensely strong! Though it also would mean you'd have to possibly kill off several drones to save a single...

We have to roll like a 2+ for it now? Well, that was to be expected i guess.

Could make Shield Generators possibly viable on XV8s, to stop the shots that slip through.

Re: Just went undefeated itc three rounds

For sure, sorry to not add more details... One thing plan on going last... I always did. All the heavy hitters are in reserves, the yvharahas a billion drones near to soak firepower... That's the way to do it! :) I also upgraded every firewarriors squad to a leader with pistol and markerlights roug...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Could you briefly explain your intended tactics here?

I assume three Breacher-loaded Devilfish operating as a big mechanized pack, pair of Hammerheads for anti-tank, and then lots of miscellaneous backfield infantry? How do you intend to use the Strike Team and Rail Rifle Pathfinders?

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

I took your earlier advice, Arka, and went with a little less in some places (like replacing a few Strike Teams, taking a few synergy units, like MB3 recon drones for some tasty assault bonuses on my 3 Dfish, as well as an Ethereal for re-rolling ones and Sense of Stone as well as morale.) I put in...

Re: Flamers and overwatch- not actually that useful?

So, at my local GW shop, I took my cir/flamer ghost keel and was fighting nurgle's demons. They charge my GK from 10 inches, successfully. I'm told by the store manager that I can't flame them as they're out of range. But... They're literally running into hand to hand combat, to 0 inches, how can t...

Re: Has anyone modeled an ATS?

I use the bottom portion of a marker drone with a small magnet to represent it. It works alright, the only issue I have is that sometimes it only wants to sit on one shoulder on my XV-8's but looks good on everything else. I might add a magnet to to tops of some of my weapons to mount it instead wh...

I expect they need to get through this new AoS release before they get back to 40k. The March 24th estimate still looks pretty good.
