Re: Tau List for Escalation Event

I do like the list. I am curious as to the inclusion of gun drones over shield drones? I am also curious as to the inclusion of the fusions on the xv8 squad. I have read here that it is always best to keep your squads single purpose? I need to run some mathhammer on flamers with and without ATS aga...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

However, I would say they need to be around half the price because the FWs have only about 1/2 as much damage potential over all. the extra 6 inch range and +1 str weapon don't quite make up for the 4+ BS over the 3. Even then, you're not really accounting for the vastly different melee abilities. ...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Arka, I like that a lot! I like how stealth suits have performed for me so far in 8e, so I like the two big blobs. I also think that the fireblade is practically useless with how many pathfinders I have in the list. I prefer the 2x3 arrangement for Stealthsuits, but did you find a particular advant...

My Model List 1 x Ghostkeel 1 x Commander 3 x XV8 6 x XV25 (I bought the rapid insertion cadre box) This means I am somewhat limited in my number of drones, but I am collecting a box of bits tomorrow so we shall see what I get. My 40 PL List Commander (4x fusion) + 2 x shield drones 7PL 3 x XV25 (B...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Yeah Arka, I'll use the breachers to push onto objectives, the RR pathfinders and Strike team to camp my backfield, and the Hammerheads to finish off anything that the QFCs don't kill. The stealthsuits I have found to be a very nice durable unit and can push infantry such as gaunts off objectives r...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

I admit, trying to squeeze a Recon Drone into each Devilfish is really going to limit your deployment options and make the initial setup probably needlessly annoying, since you need to deploy the various units one by one I need an explanation on this. I thought I was just gonna set up each Pathfind...

Re: New to the Game; Couldn't Help but Choose Tau

That's a good list. I notice you tend towards several smaller units (units of 5 or 6) vice maxing them out with 10 (or 12 for strike teams). Is that more a factor of more of the soft squishy units means more potential rounds of dealing with them? Exactly- this is called "MSU" (Multiple Sm...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

All we need is a mod to take over the leaks. Have people who have inside sources send the leak information to the mod, then have the mod post the information. That way no username can be associated with it and there can't be any reprimands for it. That’s a good idea too. Anyone who leaks to a mod c...

Re: Ghostkeel tactica

A Velocity Tracker is also monstrously powerful against hover tanks like Repulsors and Wave Serpents. +1 to hit and no Hard to Hit penalty means you can easily get 2+ re-rolling against a priority target. Hi Arka, how do you circumvent the Hard To Hit penalty? Is that built into the Velocity Tracke...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My only minor grievance is I wanted a brigade detachment but I use 2 commanders atm, I've always had 2 commanders so a tad miffed :sad: Funny that, same here. Though, just bring a 7th Troops choice and you can field your second Commander as a Brigade + Patrol army. Also can't believe that basically...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Sorry, that was a bit confusing. Savior Protocols is the same as before, but happens only on a 2+. If people are already complaining about T’au, here a few negative things haha. 1 commander per detachment No changes to the markerlight table No improvement to BS across the board Railguns are the sam...

Okay, you've gotten me curious! :D I'd love to hear more about this list- if you want, make a thread over in Cadre Building and explain how this totally unique lists works. I'm sure more than a few people would be interested!

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Talk is reaching the wider community and even with just the barest hints the internet is begining to tear up at the thought of buffed Tau. For all we know this dex is bad and the buffs make no impact in the meta. Despite that the tears begin. Well I hope we are buff enough to at least justify the h...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

Aw jeez I must've forgotten to put in the Devilfish Configurations. But, you guessed right, but instead of pathfinders I have Strike Teams in place. Devilfish 1: Fireblade, Ethereal, 5x Fire Warriors, 5x Fire Warriors, Recon Drone Devilfish 2: 7x Breachers, 5x Fire Warriors, Recon Drone Devilfish 3...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Though the actual bodyguards rule is you take the 2+ after failing saves, against ap- weapons this would make saviour Protocol hilariously strong Forgot that- that would make Savior Protocols immensely strong! Though it also would mean you'd have to possibly kill off several drones to save a single...

We have to roll like a 2+ for it now? Well, that was to be expected i guess.

Could make Shield Generators possibly viable on XV8s, to stop the shots that slip through.
