Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

This thread's back! Our tanks are in such a bad place right now... best not to think about it and instead reminisce about good ol' 5th Edition where Hammerheads could knock out Land Raiders in a single shot :D How does the IonHead factor into this? It's higher rate if fire seems like it should help ...

Re: Tau's most annoying weakness. Thoughts?

Surely you'd think those fancy little helmets with sophisticated lenses, for a shooting army, would do something like prevent the tau from ever having to roll to-hit on anything less than a 5+. Otherwise if this gets out of hand we'll start seeing players fielding more and more gun drones for sheer...

Some source he doesn't want to name. Aka not credible at all. ^^

Huh. I could have sworn a few other users mentioned it. Whatever. Let's keep our hopes up for December then! :P

Re: 3D print extra parts: Stormsurge, Riptide, Piranha, ...

i have to say, the only thing that stopped me from getting the Stormsurge eons earlier is cuz i thought the open-top cockpit was absolute garbage and utterly ridiculous. When i saw your shapeways shop with the cockpit cover i pretty much bought a Stormsurge model immediately. :D Do most people not ...

Re: Happy 30th Anniversary people!!!

Mmh...well we've come a long way and me not seeing the hobby through nostalgia glasses I'm glad many things changed. However I do miss Warhammer Fantasy 7e and my Tomb Kings quite a bit. :P Honestly, yeah, I love where 40k is at but I can't make up my mind about fantasy. I'd been working on a Fanta...

Don't worry, no one's saying to do that! Unless they buff Pulse Carbines and nerf Gun Drones, the Fire Warrior weapon of choice will be the Pulse Rifle.

By the way, where's this March rumor coming from?

Re: It's a new galaxy. What's next for Tau? Psychic? Thoughts?

I think it's the dream of many players to make "Tau Federation" lists. Maybe someday aliens will finally have viable units.

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

I've heard "Multiple Small Units" but you get the idea. Bring lots of little things instead of a few big things. MSU is good for loads of reasons. It's not good for some synergies and kill point games though.

Honestly, I'd say, don't bother. Gun Drones are disposable, and you only get 6 in a squad. Each drone you lose represents lower efficiency and greater opportunity cost for the XV8s.

Re: Warhammer Underworld the beginning of the end?

You guys see the underworld stuff. Are we seeing a possible trend. 40k 9th edition 40k underworld. *Throws up in mouth* It's basically an arena board game. Just like all the other board games they've experimented with throughout the years. They've put out dozens at this point, it won't change anyth...

Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

Now that we've all been playing 8th Edition for months now, what are your thoughts on the Sun Shark Bomber? It's a great source of mortal wounds, carries two Seeker Missiles, and has great S7/S8 shooting options as well. It also synergizes well with Markerlights, as it gets meaningful benefits with ...

Re: Tau's most annoying weakness. Thoughts?

With infantry, yes. Just one more reason why Gun Drones are superior. It can often be a good tactic to put Gun Drones in front of your regular Fire Warrior gunline, to soak charges. If you're expecting a rush or playing aggressively that is. When the Gun Drones get charged they overwatch well and s...

Re: 2000 pts Frontal Assault

Couldn't I call Mont'ka when I fire the IDC? I'm only expecting the Y'vahras to survive for 1 or 2 turns after they engage, so I shouldn't need more than that to get max performance out of them. Not really, sadly. The Commanders aren't as fast as the Y'vahras, and you can't use Mont'ka after using ...

Re: 1500 pt event list building

So I was thinking about your suggestions I think combining the breachers into one unit is great. This is just to reduce Kill Points- that's how the tournament is scored. Remember your list packs 12 already. Darkstrider [45 pts] Stormsurge [437pts]:Burst,blastcannon,Shield,Stim,ats Commander [138pts...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

BY the way, these suckers got a new datasheet from the Index. Seems Forgeworld decided to give us the option of CIBs instead of Burst Cannons on the wing turrets. https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Tiger-Shark-AX-1-0.pdf And, this is the reason we can't actually field the...

Re: Tau's most annoying weakness. Thoughts?

Doesn't change the fact that Sniper aren't worth it though. Even the Marine ones are barely worth it. I guess there aren't too many snipers that are really worth it. Though it would be nice if we could get a character-buster like a Vindicare. Sniper Drone with a Railgun anyone? :D In all seriousnes...

Re: Do Pulse weapons shoot bullets?

I love how the do-railguns-have-recoil question pops up all over the place. So I guess Pulse Rifles, too, would have recoil then? The general consensus seems to be that they would in theory. However, when it comes to recoil the Tau have an ace up their sleeve in the form of those round gyros at the...
