Re: Fusion Collider vs. Cyclic Ion Raker... thoughts?

1. The Ghostkeel can infiltrate, is a battlesuit, and takes up an elite slot - like stealth suits but sorta like xv8's as well. And now, for some nonsense. You've been warned: A Ghostkeel is what you get when you cross an XV8 with an XV-25...I will now never be able to get this image out of my head...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

It looks a little Tau-ish but it has rivets, or it looks a little Imperial-ish but is a little too curvy. Sound familiar? My guess is it's something like the Redemptor Dreadnought or Repulsor Tank, a Primaris machine that seems to have a little Tau inspiration.

Re: Help needed, 2000 pts vs Grey Knights

I'd recommend an ethereal here I think. In addition to allowing you to basically ignore morale, he gives you versatility in being able to pick survivability(6+++), re-roll advances, or re-roll 1's. Having the 6+ ignore from sense of stone could actually help your fire warriors survive more than you...

Re: Warhammer Community match

We can definitely compete with Custards but you really need to have lots of multi wound things to do it, IE commanders with Ion and fusions. You're talking about D3 and D6 damage weapons right? How was your experience with D3 damage weapons? I've found them to be powerful but unreliable- rolling a ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Yea, that’s also my thought. but for ion weapons, it seem that they will be better on both Hammerhead and Riptide. Do you think ion weapons for crisis, pathfinder and Sun shark bomber will be better as well? That's my assumption. I'd bet that powerful Ion and cheap Rail will be the new norm, with M...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Just curious when he mentions that railguns are stay the same. Did he included Rail Rifle and Heavy Rail Rifle as well? I really want to know that lol. He just said "Railgun" but if the Railgun is staying the same, everything else will. The line between the Railgun and HRR is very fine as...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Crazy speculation time. It's pretty clear the Heavy 18 S6 gun is the Heavy Burst Cannon. If the Nova Charge profile is D2, that means the standard profile is D1. Which means... The Fire Support Hammerhead mounts (gasp) two Heavy 36 S6 AP-1 gun. Also, the Barracuda mounts a Heavy 18 S6 AP-1 gun. Brrr...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But it would seem that GW decided to take the worst route possible to buffing us. We are only a couple "buffs" away from having to pay $500 for a 300 point list and having a formation called "blue tide" From what Haechi has mentioned, you should like the update. Big things are b...

Re: Tau List for Escalation Event

I have the go ahead to have two Ghostkeel loadouts in my roster. You suggest having one with CIR+2flamer and the other with CIR+2burst. I am curious as to why not have a fusion option as the flamer and burst overlap more than either of those with fusion. Those are two options for using Flamers and ...

Re: Tau List for Escalation Event

That could work, but then we have an issue of our xv8's wanting to be at two different ranges. I have done the mathhammer, and against default space marines 6 x flamers with ATS is exactly equivalent in time to kill as 9 x flamers. However stick the space marines in cover and the ats flamer loadout...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I was thinking of the HBC stats once more: I haven´t played the Bursttide in 8th for a single time, although it is one of my favourite models. In the Index it has 8 S6 shots with AP-1 or 12 S6 shots AP-2 when Nova charged. So maybe...just maybe those 18 shots with S6 and AP-1 are the UNCHARGED vers...

Re: Tau List for Escalation Event

I do like the list. I am curious as to the inclusion of gun drones over shield drones? I am also curious as to the inclusion of the fusions on the xv8 squad. I have read here that it is always best to keep your squads single purpose? I need to run some mathhammer on flamers with and without ATS aga...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

However, I would say they need to be around half the price because the FWs have only about 1/2 as much damage potential over all. the extra 6 inch range and +1 str weapon don't quite make up for the 4+ BS over the 3. Even then, you're not really accounting for the vastly different melee abilities. ...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Arka, I like that a lot! I like how stealth suits have performed for me so far in 8e, so I like the two big blobs. I also think that the fireblade is practically useless with how many pathfinders I have in the list. I prefer the 2x3 arrangement for Stealthsuits, but did you find a particular advant...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Yeah Arka, I'll use the breachers to push onto objectives, the RR pathfinders and Strike team to camp my backfield, and the Hammerheads to finish off anything that the QFCs don't kill. The stealthsuits I have found to be a very nice durable unit and can push infantry such as gaunts off objectives r...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

I admit, trying to squeeze a Recon Drone into each Devilfish is really going to limit your deployment options and make the initial setup probably needlessly annoying, since you need to deploy the various units one by one I need an explanation on this.
