New FAQ: You can't deep strike 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...

Re: namegiver's Shi'ar Sept Project Log

It all looks good so far. This and Onmyou's Motivation Service should be able to get me motivated to do more :sad: . Looks great though. Loving the scheme. Cool, thanks.

Re: Exploding drones?

Thats the same for any vehicle that uses gun drones, piranha, devilfish, hammerhead, etc. I've found i quite useful with the piranha. Yeah, having the Drones survive is a nice bonus. Not going to win any games, but, having 66% of a model's firepower survive after death isn't bad at all. And yeah, a...

Re: 1000 points suits list

Aspiring Commander's list is perfect. Definitely try that out. The one change I would make though would be adding the Shield Drones to the Stealthsuit squad with the Homing Beacon, to keep it a bit more protected. Also, if you want to really keep the Homing Beacon protected, consider a combined Stea...

Re: New member

You certainly have the right models for that kind of list! Since you like mobility let's definitely include a Coldstar Commander alongside the auto-include Fusion Commander. Then a mechanized Fire Warrior unit, Stealthsuits, Kroot... honestly, everything in your army is good, and the list writes its...

Re: Pathfinders' alternative weapons

What an odd rule, I can see where both of you are coming from.

If the effect persisted beyond the attack made by the Devilfish though, it would read "Units that have been attacked by a Devilfish..."

Re: New to Tau, need help building army

One question I had after looking at your list...I noticed you have 10 stealth drones but no ghostkeels. Did you get them all separately somewhere? I just looked at your list again.... You have 10 "shield" not "stealth" drones... it's been a long day already lol :? Yeah, I only f...

Absolutely beautiful as always. And that white is enviable. Do you paint on that grey-green undercoat first, then layer up white over it?

I feel like that might be a little overpowered, but if we get it, I wouldn't complain! 9 XV8s, 6 Commanders, and 30 attached drones... and 12 Command Points!

Totally! Though it would make XV8 battalions tough to get, at probably 1150 points minimum :neutral:

Re: New to Tau, need help building army

I'm definitely not against using some proxied weapons. I just don't know how to make them myself. Is that with a 3D printer and some specific filament? I have a couple friends that have a 3D printer, one of which plays 40k. If I have to get some of Red Dog's, I'd totally be fine with that. They loo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

New Pathfinders came out with the 6th Ed Codex? I could have sworn they came out alongside the new Fire Warrior box. At any rate, yeah, Tau have had a surprising number of releases. We're also in a position where none of our core units are metal or resin, unlike the Eldar... Yup it was in 6th, but ...
