Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I definitely see how the firepower can be an issue going toe to toe with a las predator. It's absolutely tough. You either need to use Commanders w/ 4x Fusion Blasters to take care of the Predators, or XV8s/Commanders w/ Cyclic Ion Blasters in larger numbers. But the problem is there isn't much of ...

Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

I use two fusion commanders and a CIB team of 3 crisis suits as my anti-vehicle/monster along with 3 shield drones and two marker drones for the team. I seen this combination time and time again take down with marker light support knights and even baneblades by themselves with good rolls. In some c...

Maybe you just got confused about ATS? People commonly talk about ATS being viable only on CIR Ghostkeels but not on FC Ghostkeels.

Re: Tau Starship specifications

If you ask around on reddit, in r/40klore, I bet people could tell you more about Tau starships and 40k starships in general over there, they're absurdly knowledgeable.

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

So even if the Target Lock and the Networked Markerlight don't take up a hardpoint, it definitely only comes with two hardpoints to play around with. Yeah, that's absolutely true- could be a relic from when Commanders could only take 3 weapons. Anyway, with that in mind I think I'm going to pull th...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Thanks for all the feedback! I like your list. I slightly mentioned earlier I have to wait on getting a regular commander (FB). It is a priority to obtain but I rather buy Stormsurge(a more exciting unit for me) Friday and I can't swing both. That's okay! We can drop the Commander but we'll need ano...

Re: 1500 Tau v Astra Militarum

Hi all! I’ve just joined the ATT community, or rather if been a member for awhile but I want to start contributing. A couple of months ago, my regular opponent who strictly plays Guard and I played. It was one of our first couple of games for 8th edition and we had a blast. I’ve written the full ba...

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

A few thoughts. If nobody is taking tanks, he shouldn't need a 4x fusion commander. With no Lascannon Predators, Repulsors, and sneaky Anti-Tank units hidden in light transports, I think things like Carnifexes, Hive Tyrants, Y'vahras, Dreadknights, etc will be very powerful in this tournament. The F...

Re: Why do drones have to take morale??

Maybe they just hit their 60K mile maintenance mark, and now is as good a time as any! This will be what I envision every time I lose a drone in the morale phase from now on! Ha, I love this. An XV8 battlesuit is under heavy fire, and sees a Devastator raise his lascanon and take aim... the XV8 ret...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

Hence why nobody takes the Multi-tracker. Re-rolling 1s on a special condition while we already have access to re-rolling 1s via single Markerlights on the targets is 1.) worse than an AP buff or an additional weapon and 2.) way too redundant with elements we already have in our army anyway. The Mu...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

As far as I'm concerned, a unit has all the special rules it has on the Datasheet unless the text in that special rule says only a specific model from that unit has it or similar exceptions. Of course FW screwed up there, but what's more likely? FW putting there a reminder text of a basic Support S...

Re: Dealing with Deathguard

Well it's just the most basic of our guns and to be fair we can get those 45 shots quite easily. It's just 2x12 Firewarrior in Rapid fire range. Or if we take Gun Drones then we'd need 67.5 shots without buffs but that's only ~17 Gun Drones even. :P I guess I'm still annoyed by the overall Pulse ne...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

Well the Target Lock does something if you want it to do something. Keep in mind that it doesn't just let us shoot heavy weapons without penalty after moving, it also let us shoot assault weapons without penalty after advancing and rapid fire weapons after advancing with a -1 to-hit penalty. ;) Tru...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Looks like a fun list! There are a few tweaks we can make though. First, a nearly 400pt XV8 team really isn't going to make its points back. 8 Missile Pods sounds like a lot, but with BS4+ you're going to see 8 hits, 2-4 wounds, maybe 1D3 or 2D3 damage on a vehicle. Let's just drop that squad for th...

Re: Early Version of the Strike Team tactica 8e

I really appreciate your taking the time to make this extensive tactica! However, making sure your information is accurate is a very important part of tactica-writing, so let me clarify a few points: As it does not need to be set up at the start, and can be placed in a movement phase, it can help wi...

Re: 2k Tournament List, Final Tweaks

That's because the XV84 doesn't just come with a Networked Markerlight, it also comes with a Target Lock by default. ;) I don't actually own Index: Xenos, just working from what I see here. Found the datasheet online though... it has the Target Lock reminder text in its description but isn't actual...

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

So yes it's a regular game but the only way to get points for the tournament is under those conditions. Well, this should make for a very strange tournament! Assuming people play competitively (they should, it's a tournament after all) no one will bring tanks. This means all players will score the ...

As someone who started only after the new Crisis and Broadsides got released...no, just no. Nothing to impress new players and definitely not a wonderful model. The newer ones look so much better. The only reason why I would be surprised to see them is because I'd be surprised someone would still u...
