Orks eleven months from now? You mean a real release, or the actual Codex in December?

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

This being the case and using the suggested suits to capture then mechanised infantry to hold idea maybe 10 strike with a Cadre Fireblade and a guardian drone. Remember that a single Guardian Drone is essentially a liability though. Only matters against AP-3 weaponry that target your Fire Warriors,...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

What is the purpose of the Fireblade in the fish? Breachers don't benefit from volley fire. If it's the marker light, consider Darkstrider, same BS and only 3 points more, but the breachers could use his structural analyzer. You do lose a bit of durability in the armor save, to be fair. Didn't even...

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

...as you resolve the shooting, each subsequent unit's To Hit and To Wound gains +1 cumulatively. This would help both Sniper Drones, Broadside and to some extent Sky Rays and Hammerheads. There must be a Sept that specialises in Heavy Support??? To be honest, I would take it a a strategem alternat...

You can tell him his codex is coming out at the end of August. And feed on his tears.

I admit I don't follow rumors for any of the other factions. Is that one widely-known?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

You forgot that everything in codex space marines can be used in every single space marine army. Even named chapters. Sure a blood angels model can't be used in a dark angels army, but all those different primaris can be used in all of them. But that's the interesting thing about all of this. With ...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

The way I see it, holding objectives and pushing the enemy off objectives are roles done by two different units. We Tau don't have any units that can smash the opposition aside and then just camp on an objective. Rather, we'd prefer to destroy the enemy defenders of an objective using battlesuits or...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Every month is a tad-bit overstatement, and if you ever start a space marine faction I think you will realize that only a fraction of these "space marine models coming out every month" is actually relevant for your particular colour of SM. :D This is so important to remember! There are a ...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Which maybe true (it's a matter of opinion), but that is exactly a thing that is not relevant to the question whether JSJ is a good game mechanic or not. It's also an issue I think best left on ice until our codes comes out as the same points are being reiterated over and over since last summer. :)...

[Thank you for your post. Yes, this was the essence of what I was getting at. I'm glad that I got through to at least someone. :smile: I think most of us understand- you made excellent points and I think they are certainly valid! However, we're still worse off as a faction without JSJ, which puts o...

Re: Tau/40k Weaponry sounds?

As a writer of fiction in 40k, I often find it frustrating because there isn't really any description of the way tau weaponry sounds. I remember the 7e codex had a bit about stealth suits where the fusion blasters "hiss" and the burst cannons "chatter". Can you guys help me out?...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Not spending at GW isn't the answer, encouraging people to buy from GW and buy xenos instead of imperial /chaos is what will draw their attention back to the xenos factions. I know that's not easy atm but when speaking to other people do you complain about how T'au are being treated or about how aw...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

It's an intentional subtle ploy to kill off xenos in 40k. 30k and power armor is too much mad money for them to pass up. The writing is on the wall folks. ... It's over guys. They don't want xenos. I mean, maybe you're right, maybe you're wrong. You don't work at GW, neither do we, and there are no...

Re: Revisiting CIB Builds (Again!)

It wasn't the greatest list, but I ran a commander with 4xCIB in a 500 point game against Blood Angels the other day. In hindsight, I think I would have benefited more with 3xCIB + ATS. I feel that would have dropped more marines. He was running some ridiculous captain though which wrecked my army....

Here in the US it literally means "a (very) few of which". Not sure about UK though You don't think "we reckon one or two will be alien in nature..." is sarcasm or understatement? I don't think they mean literally one or two things. After all, that would be massive news were it ...
