Re: Casual(ish) 1000pt List Help

This list looks quite good. The XV8s, XV9 with Drone Controller, two Commanders, etc. all seem solid. Running a Battalion at 1000 points means you have a lot of infantry, and less alpha strike ability than you might otherwise want, so I'd try to be the main "objective holder" on your team ...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Smashed it! Nice one. What's next? Thanks! From here on out I need to finish the units I'll use in my 1500-point list. That's 3x Commanders, 2x Fireblades, 3x XV8s, 6x Gun Drones, 1x Devilfish, and 12x Pathfinders. Should take me through January to complete. Then it's on to my 2000-point list: I ne...

Re: Kelandis

You've a mad amount of battlesuits. Love it! :P I'm currently at 21 crisis suits, 3 riptides, 1 stormsurge, 6 metal and 6 plastic stealth suits, 4 OOP broadsides and 6 new ones, 2 commanders, shadowsun, and old farsight as far as suits go. Waiting to see if Farsight gets some love in the codex and ...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

If you can pop both land raiders turn one before he even moves (And this is very very doable given he won't have much of a screen) you win turn one. This is a good point- there's just no way that an all-Custodes army could bring screening units. Fire away! However, those Land Raider have 5++, do do...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

It felt wrong posting a group shot with unfinished models. Here's the army as it is currently- the bare heads have been finished, the third Shas'ui has been added, and in the back you can just see the Homing Beacon as well. All in all it's 46 models and totals 465 points so far. https://i.imgur.com/...

Re: Kelandis

At least 2 models have fusion Blasters so it's no worries there :) Great start then! I've stumbled into those before I even purchased my army since I've been reading on ATT for at least 2 weeks, maybe 3. I was just hoping perhaps there was a cheaper option xD Yeah, they're a little pricey, but they...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

The original color palette compliments itself in such large infantry miniature numbers! Great looking progress and kinda makes me wonder why the heck is it taking me so long to work on my miniatures. I believe I need more determination into this hobby. Thanks! Don't worry about speed, really. I was...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

This isn't an update but rather a group shot- here's forty-five finished models! Twenty-six Fire Warriors, twelve Gun Drones, four Shield Drones, and three Stealthsuits! More to come too!

Re: Kelandis

a lot of the suits are magnetized fortunately! The stealthsuits are not, but I don't think thats a huge deal. That's not a worry at all. 90% of the time Stealthsuits will carry Burst Cannons, which I'm sure they already have, and maybe one will carry a Fusion Blaster. Since you have 10 Stealthsuits...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Except you guys thing the answer is double tap when standing still. And that's sully, the HH whole point is supposed to be MOBILE superior firepower. I like moving my tanks. I like it a lot. I don't want to stand still to fire twice I want to double move if i choose to fire only once. What's up? Ou...

Sorry I'm late to the discussion. I assume you had the battle already? Yes, I had it already. unlucky, I have lost. but it was a fun game! However, I still love to listen to your opinion. please share! Honestly your list looks good. Personally I'm not a fan of the Ghostkeel but if you like it do ke...

Re: Kelandis

Thnaks I look forward to your tactical advice! And yeah, I got them in a fantastic Ebay lot which I got almost all of my army in. The cool thing is that they're all metal too im p sure, and the former owner attached metal beads to the bases so they stay upright and don't fall over! :D My favourite ...

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Amy List

My only suggestion would be to see if you can add 3 firewarriors by removing 3 pathfinders. Then split the 3 teams of 10 down to 6 teams of 5 and make it 2 battalion detachments. But I think I remember you saying that you didn't have enough Shas'Ui painted and you wanted to have that fully represen...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

If you engage a tank, then you're looking at 1.5-2 Fusion Blaster hits from a ~300-point squad. XV8s are already inefficient for their points- you need to fire all of your weapons every turn or you risk rapidly becoming less and less relevant. You're flexible, but if you sacrifice firepower for fle...

Re: Y'vahra 1500 list

I agree with the previous suggestions, and I would provide the Y'vahra with Shield Drones at the start. It may run away from its Drones (they move avg. 11.5" while it moves 16") but you can drop in the XV9s to provide the Y'vahra with more Drones. Try Gun Drones with the XV9s for more fire...

Re: Kelandis

Sounds like a great collection! I look forward to your list and tactics thread!

By the way, nine OOP Broadsides? Those are my favorite models in 40k. Right now they're pretty poor models rules-wise, but they're beautiful models.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Here's a fun question: What if railguns all had the sniper special ability? they already have ?? No they don't, they can't target characters regardless of whether there are other models closer. Again I think Wedrujacy was talking about the ability to deal mortal wounds like snipers do. Anyway. But ...
