Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Also, can characters hang out in the middle of a unit? Yup! Totally can. They don't join it but they can hang out. Definitely legal, but remember you "activate" units to move them one-at-a-time, so there theoretically could be problems if you, for example, have Darkstrider in the middle o...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

The Changeling causes all Tzeentch Daemon units less than 9in away to force you to subtract 1 from your to-hit rolls. And bird perverts get +1 to their invulnerable saves on top of that just for being themselves. It was rough. Yikes. Yeah, Tau (also Imperial Guard) really suffer when confronted wit...

Whenever I see this I want to write, "I think there's a typo in your list, shouldn't that be 8x12?", but then I remember that this list is off-the-walls insane and it's beautiful.

Re: Line of Sight: Base or Model?

Are there any (non-40k) game systems where a model cannot shoot if there are any units between them and the target? The store owner might be getting mixed up.

Thank You for Your advice! Here is an image of Devilfish in my color scheme: (I hope the URL is working...) http://imgur.com/jjEPbww I don't really like that the sept markings's color indicates sept.

Re: Kanite

Welcome to ATT!! And here is my first question - Do You, T'au painters have any tips how to start? I'm not asking about "How to paint for begginers" but what I need to know painting T'AU. If you know how to paint already, you're 90% of the way there! For painting Tau, here are some tips to...

Re: 1500 point mobile force

It looks like you took 2 Devilfish and 2 Piranhas but only paid for one of each, so this list is 1709 points total. And speaking of that, I think there's a little too much crammed in here for a 1500pt list!. Let's build up from the core, and see what we have: HQ - Cadre Fireblade / Markerlight (42) ...

Re: 1500 pt Combined Arms

Blindeye's suggestion is excellent. The only changes I'd consider would be taking Gun Drones with the Ghostkeel, since you probably want to infiltrate/move with it and the Drones might not be able to get there/keep up. Also, consider combining the Pathfinders into two units since you don't need to f...

True, if you can get enough of it. Also, I'd mention that XV9s w/ Double-Barreled Burst Cannons are positively savage versus anything with 4++ or worse.

Re: Empire of color, the artistic endeavours of the T'au

In recent years, however, we've had varying examples and depending on the author, writing poetry is either a common past-time or is a crime punishable by death (for non-fio). Even freedom of expression is up for grabs these days, considering tau are variously praised for their candor or ordered to ...

Re: Let's talk about the Sun Shark

It's not a complete different rule, just a special thing going for attached drones that can overcharge their weapons because normally RAW it says the parent unit is using the weapon, not the Drone. It's like USRs just more confusing. I saw "Attached Drones" and figured it did the same thi...

Re: Vehicle movement

One more question. What about the guns on vehicles? Last week I played a battle in which the nose of the Hammerhead saw enemy troops, while the Rail Gun didn't. We agreed that I can't shoot. Is it right? It can shoot. Any unit can shoot with any weapon as long as you can draw line of sight from the...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

only having 4 Gun Drones hurt (especially when they only hit on a 6). Why were they hitting on 6s? Did the enemy have some ability that made them innacurate? how do we deal mortal wounds/get around Invulnerable saves and Disgusting Resiliency? The only way is to avoid using powerful guns (really po...

Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

There is a good dual fusion gun from Paulson Games/Red Dog Minis that looks way better than the original kit. (Even the PG single fusion looks better) I have a few at home. Kromlech heat guns can pass as cool looking fusion as well, but I don't think there is a dual version. Let's face it...all of ...

Re: Line of Sight: Base or Model?

He's saying that Line of Sight is impeded by a model's base, regardless of the actual model itself: meaning a line of gun drones screening in front of a unit would prevent the unit being screened from effectively targeting anything in front of them. I argued (even demonstrating with models on the t...

Re: Can't decide on a color scheme. Please Help!

If I don't use the highest white to paint the armor will that help? Like maybe an off white using highest white for highlighting? Also if I prime it white how hard would it be for the black? It wouldn't be hard to paint the black at all; that said though, the black parts might be hard to reach. You...

Re: Why 8th Gun Drons as OPAF

That's not where it gets good. Since the carbines are Twin Linked , you get double the amount of shots (so assault 2 becomes assault 4). Therefore, you get a massive, dakka-heavy total of 288 shots on the shooting phase, and varying amounts within that total for overwatch. Pretty cool right??? Huh?...
