Re: 3D print... OOP models, Enclave fan-fiction modifications

Actually looking for some CIB. How do those compare size and quality wise? Size is mostly the same. I can't tell/show you quality yet, I will receive my own on 3rd of October if their estimate is correct. The image looks fantastic. I'm surprised no-one's put up any Tau Ion-looking weapons up on Sha...

Re: First time 500pt list

A CIB comes in a normal commander box. This site has alternative kit bashing conversions in the modeling forum. As for cheep strong magnets, my first starter magnets I got at hobby lobby craft magnets that were sized '0.125 inn , 3mm, 24pc.' They worked well for my crisis suits. I don't see them on...

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

Is there a reason for taking the Drones in such big squads? Would not bringing squads of 4 be better? Gun Drones x 4 Gun Drones x 4 Cadre Fireblade w/ Gun Drones x 2 Devilfish w/ Gun Drones x 2 That way I have 4 squads per Devilfish to put where I need. Why would bringing more in a squad be better?...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

2 things I worry about with the setup is not having an additional XV25 team with homing beacon in case the first one gets wiped out before doing anything This is a very valid worry- I don't use Flamer XV8s with Manta Strike unless absolutely necessary (they can move quite quickly by Advancing) but ...

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

Ooh, that's interesting! If you find someone with an assault-y army, then you can design an army that's all about supporting assault units. To go from 500 points to 1000 points, what other models do you have? Well I have my other thread going which you have commented on but I have: 2 boxes of Pathf...

Re: First time 500pt list

I really love the idea of the fusion blaster flamer squad of xv8s and potentially taking more drones as well (more firepower is never a bad thing) but i kind of want to keep my ethereal on for just a touch longer , simply because i have him and i like the model. Thank you for your incredibly detail...

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

I have read the codex but am a bit lost how the homing beacon is working. As it needs to be placed right next to them there seem to be little flexibility. How does infiltrate work? On Infiltration and Homing beacons, basically when you set up your Stealth suits you can put them anywhere on the boar...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Good question. Old paint can do weird things to a model, especially when it was applied badly/thickly- even lots of scrubbing with a toothbrush and Simple Green can't get congealed paint out of cracks and lines on the model sometimes. After a while, you look at a model and determine that it's just ...

Did it have any effect on repainting them? Did the models (that survived) look fuzzy at all? And what happened to the 10% that didn't make it? Good question.

Re: 1000pt game Table to win

I like this list idea. However, since almost all of your units are Characters (or Vehicles) the Pathfinders seem like they'll die early on. Just a thought. I like the idea of the Coldstar Drone-buffer though, that sounds fun. Anyway, I think at 1000 points two Fusion Commanders are enough; there's n...

Re: 50PL list for local tourny

Looks like a very solid list! However, it's a PL tournament so consider taking higher-value upgrade items. Use your CIBs for anti-infantry, and swap your Flamers out for an all-Fusion Blaster build! The cost is the same! Also, we can make our PL work for us a little more by dropping the two Marker D...

Re: First time 500pt list

So i bough the get started box and am not too sure how to run it to have a playable army. Ive got a rough list written but im honestly unsure if its good or if some of the things ive included are flat out wastes of points. So my idea is to have a small army that i can flesh out into a full 2k point...

1 pts for Deep striking and killing a model in CC without suffering casualties 2 pts for winning with an Ally 3pts for killing a character with only smite What are these rules?!? Those sound so anti-T'au it's not even funny anymore. :-( Haha, I agree here! What does "ally" mean here? Like...

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

The tau thread about ideal drone size seem to slightly favour squads of 6 over 8 slightly although both being strong and as I read it there is a very very strong synergy with a drone controller adding to rolls. Both are good picks- feel free to use either! My understanding, perhaps wrong, is that a...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Thanks for all the tactical analysis! There are a few things we can still improve though in your new list- first, again, you need more threats on the field. At this point you only have the big XV8 squad and the Stormsurge. Everything else is just support for those units. Sure they're powerful, but y...

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...
