Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

Hey all! I'm currently out of the country so I have limited ability to post on ATT until the end of August. I won't really be able to contribute to this thread, so I'll submit what we have with the changes others suggested.

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

This army looks to be a strong one in the new edition. Will you be posting pictures of your models? Thanks! I'll definitely be posting pictures. I'm currently out of the country though, so updating this thread is on hold until I get back in September. I just felt accute pain when I saw the 74 fire ...

Re: Two Chaos Factions.

it was 2000 points total. So everyone took 1000 points. From what I remember they had full squads each of Cultists, 2 Assaults, 2 Tactical Chaos Marines, A Chaos Lord each and Chaos Sp- Almost said it. I took a stealth suit team of 3, with a homing beacon for Farsight and a squad of 5 crisis suits ...

Re: RAW, Mont'Ka and heavy weapons.

It helps Farsight in that he can advance and fire his rapid fire weapon but sadly he cannot charge. No.... it helps him because he can declare Mont'ka twice in a single battle and thus synergizes well with things like hammerheads or other heavy weapon users that can't take target lock. Sure that's ...

Go big. Right now I'm experimenting between using 3x1mm magnets and 3x2mm magnets. 2mm diameter magnets are too weak, while 4mm magnets are too large to fit in the arms of an XV8.

Good write up. Didn’t see this mentioned in your post but it’s worth mentioning: “If your army is Battle-forged, all INFANTRY , BIKER and DREADNOUGHT units in a Space Marines Detachment gain a Chapter Tactic, so long as every unit in that Detachment is drawn from the same Chapter“ So plain vehicles...

Re: Help Wanted - 1000pts vs. Necrons

Thank you! :) I'm cool with whatever works best, and Commander spam looks to be the way to go about it until out 'dex comes around (plus I s'pose I can just tweak it around depending on the situation). Frankly, I don't really know what works best, but given your current meta (Deathwatch and Necrons...

Re: A use for sniper drones?

Dude...your entire argument got invalid when CSM got some love. Yes they are Space Marines but they always got crap from GW in the past. You can't save yourself there. :D Also to go a few steps further...before the the two broken formations for loyalist Marines, the top tier armies used to be Eldar...

Re: Help Wanted - 1000pts vs. Necrons

Thanks for the reply! The roster above isn't an army list so much as it is all the forces I have at my disposal, although fielding 72 Fire Warriors at a time can only bring pure joy and numb hands :P We mostly play 1000pt lists, 2000pts if we're feeling adventurous. Okay, that makes a lot more sens...

Re: A use for sniper drones?

However, fundamentally the most effective setup involves three sub-par units... :neutral: You're also right that they aren't seriously competitive. Hopefully they get better in the Codex but I'm not counting on it. While I'd like to believe that the Codex will rebalance much of our units like Ripti...

Your welcome! I hear more and more good things about the xv25's. Seeing them beign such survivable units from regular infatry fire makes my interest peak towards stelth units. It's unfortunate to hear that the 'keel still lacks in firepower (at least that base BS3+ would have been nice). They were.....

So, I've been into T'au since I picked up the game almost a year ago, playing almost always against a friend's Deathwatch army on a weekly basis, things were so-so, win some lose some. When 8th rolled around said friend switched to Necrons, and I've lost all traction since, the only victory to my n...

Battle Reflections: Tau vs. SM + AdMech, 3000pts

This is less of a full battle report, and more of a "lessons learned" post in the guise of a battle report. Today I played a 3000pt Konor game against a mixed Space Marines - Adeptus Mechanicus army. It wasn't 1v2, the army was fully mixed. My army was bizarrely comprised of various Tau un...
