Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

Support Turrets: You forgot to include sections on Support Turrets (though I don't use them myself) The thing with Fire Warriors is that almost all of their wargear options- Pulse Carbines, Markerlights, Support Turrets, Pulse Pistols, Gun Drones, Shield Drones, Marker Drones, Guardian Drones... ar...

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

Not to assume, but is the person who's running this tournament possibly a non-native speaker of English? Anyway, both killing tanks and not bringing tanks score you points. So we'll assume that nobody will bring tanks. Which means... it's just a game about consolidating near the enemy? :-( Oh sorry...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

HQ - XV84 Commander w/ 3x Missile Pods, Networked Markerlight (155) The XV84 only has 2 slots, so max 2 pods. But otherwise, great tweaks on that list! :) I thought it had four slots, one of which was pre-filled by the Networked Markerlight. Or is it two weapon slots, one system slot, and the Marke...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Yeah I feared that was the case. The old broadside is the one with the old Crisis body + additional metal weapon bitz. Not a model I'd use by my own choice considering how awesome the actual Broadside model looks to be honest. :sad: Seems ok weapon wise I think. Need a larger base though. Do like t...

Re: Old XV88 Kit

I see. Will keep it as an XV88. Maybe find the correct base. As a side note, I have an oldish battleforce like this. Are all the bases in this one correct? For old models like old XV8s and old XV88s, keep them on the bases they come with. Stealthsuits, on the other hand, have had their bases update...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

I saw the index version of the zombies absorb an entire army's worth of shooting so I am surprised to hear you say that an 8 man strike team wiped them out. It just has to be that the zombie army wasn't all that good. I've seen Death Guard armies take an absurd amount of fire and keep on walking- r...

Re: Character Targeting rules

I'm a bit confused about the rules regarding the targeting of characters. As I understand it, your opponent cannot target your character models unless they are the closest unit, with the explicit exception of units using the sniper rules. However, my friend (who plays Deathwatch) seems convinced th...

Re: 1500pts - Tau vs Space Wolves

Wait did you play against space wolves or chaos? You mention berzerkers. Really corrupt Space Wolves maybe? There's a Dark Angels joke in here somewhere. Anyway, it looks like they played the game against Chaos, or else it was doubles against Space Wolves / Chaos. I was under the impression it was ...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

That's a lot more bitz :o Thanks again for all the help. Got everything I need now. Lots of gluing and painting ahead :D Good luck! Here's a tip- paint your Pulse Rifles and your Fire Warriors' shoulder pads before gluing them on. It'll be much easier to paint the torso, back of the neck, and inner...

Re: Can I overcharge my Riptide's Nova Reactor twice a turn?

Hello, Title is self-explanatory. Can I do it? And take two mortal wounds of course. Thank you To the extent of my knowledge, when you use the Nova Reactor you get to pick an ability for the duration of the turn. Think of it like turning a switch on and off- you can't turn it on again without first...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

That link does work now, cheers. Might get a bit pricey with international shipping though (UK) so will probably be one of the last things I buy before completing the list. If you don't want to get CIBs that's okay, there are other builds that are decent for XV8s to use, such as Fusion Blaster/Flam...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Looks good. Not too worried about competiveness yet to be honest. Darkstrider looks pretty nice as well :o Darkstrider is a great character- he really buffs Breachers, especially at short range when firing at T4 units like Necron Warriors or Space Marines! Unlike a Fireblade though, Darkstrider onl...

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

Their stats are comparable to the Astra Militarium Conscripts For a tactica, I wouldn't make that comparison. Fire Warriors are vastly different compared to Conscripts. Fire Warriors have a higher BS, much higher LD, a better Armor Save; on their weapons they have better range and much better stren...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

They are really weak actually. One of the regulars to my gaming group plays Death Guard, and he's a really good player. Problem is, his army sucks. Now I have nothing against Death Guard. They are a really interesting faction of chaos, being worshipers of the literal source of imperial guardsmen's ...

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

Before we fine-tune anything, can you clarify the rules for the tournament a little? The 1/2/3 point bonuses- are they added to your kill point score? Or, at the end of the game, do you get bonus points that add toward your overall tournament score? I mean, if you win and don't use vehicles, you ge...

Re: New Tau Army - Where Next?

Didn't think Kroot were very good. Do like the models though, and they seem to be a decent screening type unit. Playstyle wise I'm not sure yet, guess it depends on what I can get away with in terms of the models I have now? Probably something quite mobile or Battlesuit/Mech heavy. :D Not too keen ...
