Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Why the GI and shield drone over the pulse accelerator drone? Your list is more "stable" than what I had in mind for sure. With Pathfinders, the Pulse Accelerator only serves to increase the range of their Pulse Carbines... which, frankly, you will never use because you will always be fir...

Re: 2000 pts Balanced and no cheese

Yup, I do like it, it's clean and w/out the ML it will provide less decisions and probably get through a game faster. At 102 Power its a good start for a casual game too. If I run into any where we use Power I'll try out those ML of the FW, and maybe adding some systems to the Stealth suits to see ...

Re: 500 Pt Patrol Detachment

With the models you have, I'd say this is perfect. However, that Pathfinder team comes out to 102 points, so this list is actually 522 points I think. Rail Rifles might just be too expensive in a list like this. Let's reduce the Pathfinder squad size and give the CIB Commander some Shield Drones, an...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

What color are you going to use for the base? The one that is in the art (Deep brown with greyish highlights) or a more contrasting color like green? or a mixture of both? The plan so far is to use pale, tan, arid base with tufts of scrubgrass. The homeworld of the Tau Empire, T'au, is described as...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Maybe I can have the fish have 2 tactical drone units and a darkstrider. Unload the drones. Advance some adjacent breachers. Advance the fish close enough to the breacher team to embark. Embark and yell 'yeehaw'and the following turn maybe get to go "pew pew pew". I'm not sure if this ide...

Re: 1600 - almoust horde :)

Arka, I believe the OP is trying to keep to the standard 3 detachments where smaller groups of FW's are needed to make the two battalions. Eh, don't limit yourself. Sure we lose a Command Point but the original list had around 50% more drops. This way is slimmer and barely sacrifices anything for i...

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

Arka personally doesn't like small squads of anything. :P Argh, I've been found out! But actually, I'm just opposed to two-model squads of anything except Shield Drones. Kill points are basically moot since most tournaments follow the KP = power level theory rather than everything being a single ki...

Re: 1.5k Casual Game

Bringing a Tau'nar and a buttload of Shield Drones doesn't sound very "casual" to me lol Anyway, you either completely obliterate your opponent, or he'll see his stuff shot off of the table while collecting objectives and trying to survive until the game ends. Doesn't sound like a fun lis...

Re: Can you use a DX-4 Techical Drone to repair a Nova Reactor mortal wound???

I cannot find anything in the rules about the DX-4 that says it cannot repair the riptide's mortal wounds (or even anything saying it cannot repair mortal wounds). It says: Repair Protocol: Select one friendly unit with the BATTLESUIT keyword within 3" of the Technical Drone unit and roll a D6...

Re: 2000 pts Balanced and no cheese

Looks good and sounds good, but now the PR suits don't feel right I know the feeling. If your local meta is full of Necrons, ordinary Space Marines, Tau, Sisters, that sort of thing... maybe they're useful. They just don't back the punch that CIBs, Fusion Blasters, or Flamers can achieve. Maybe rep...

Re: 3D print... OOP models, Enclave fan-fiction modifications

Actually looking for some CIB. How do those compare size and quality wise? Size is mostly the same. I can't tell/show you quality yet, I will receive my own on 3rd of October if their estimate is correct. The image looks fantastic. I'm surprised no-one's put up any Tau Ion-looking weapons up on Sha...

A CIB comes in a normal commander box. This site has alternative kit bashing conversions in the modeling forum.

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

Is there a reason for taking the Drones in such big squads? Would not bringing squads of 4 be better? Gun Drones x 4 Gun Drones x 4 Cadre Fireblade w/ Gun Drones x 2 Devilfish w/ Gun Drones x 2 That way I have 4 squads per Devilfish to put where I need. Why would bringing more in a squad be better?...

Re: 2000 pts / 100 PL Balanced and no cheese

2 things I worry about with the setup is not having an additional XV25 team with homing beacon in case the first one gets wiped out before doing anything This is a very valid worry- I don't use Flamer XV8s with Manta Strike unless absolutely necessary (they can move quite quickly by Advancing) but ...

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

Ooh, that's interesting! If you find someone with an assault-y army, then you can design an army that's all about supporting assault units. To go from 500 points to 1000 points, what other models do you have? Well I have my other thread going which you have commented on but I have: 2 boxes of Pathf...
