Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Progress as of 10/15/17

10 Fire Warriors finished but unbased, next 6 are primed, and the Drones are magnetized (though you can't see it in the pictures). This week is going to be those 6 Drones and the Fire Warriors' bases, finally!

Bodyguards (which really aren't that useful, sadly) or all-Flamer teams that make an Advance move to increase their threat range.

Comparing Mechanized Unit Builds

At this point, it seems there are three popular mechanized unit builds. 1x10 Breachers + Darkstrider, 2x6 Breachers, and 11x Gun Drones + Fireblade (usually in two squads). These units all come out to similar costs, but I've had a hunch that the Drone synergy group is just as good if not better than...

Re: Double Devilfist 2000 pt

This is my double devilfish 2000 point list, as follows is two extremely similar lists with just slight variations, however along with over all critique and comments id like to know which is a better concept when battle forging a list. Smaller squad sizes to get maximum CP, or larger squad sizes to...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

I kinda miss T'au from 5th edition. That was probably my favourite edition so far, but I do like that I can run my army however I want, so I go for a 5th edition kind of feel, with some new model love of course. I still don't like the whole "detachments" thing, and would love to see the r...

Re: 1500 pt event list building

I think the pulse driver cannon wants to be pair target lock. This would make the storm surge more mobile to adjust its shooting profile, especially if markerlights get wiped. This wouldn't do anything, as the Stormsurge already has the "Walking Battleship" special rule. Also, are you pos...

Re: 1500pts vs AdMech

Due to the way my models were assembled for previous editions only the support systems on the suits can be changed. That's going to be an issue I think. Commanders rely on alpha strike (think shock and awe!) to be meaningful on the table. With their loadouts as they are, they'll certainly wound tan...

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

Is that value for points realistically happening with Crisis Suits given their average Ballistic Skill and their cost? It seems to me that mixing weapons would be good if suits cost 15-20 points less per model or they had 3+ Ballistic Skill -- even an extra wound. XV8s aren't perfect, and honestly ...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

8th edition just was rolled out and they did a lot of changes, those changes brought in players, they don't want to scare of their customers by massive changes. Also they want us to buy the new codex, they don't want to do it by "buy this book , it will make the units you want to play ,suck&qu...

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

It depends on how you plan on building your list. The Crisis Suit is meant to plug a hole in your army. To fill a weapon niche you are lacking or to fill a special position that you might need like deepstriking melta for hard to reach tanks, or deepstriking plasma for TEQ. Spreading out the crisis ...

Re: 3000 Points VS Death Guard

I think you've answered your own questions here! You say your opponent is bringing a huge number of Poxwalkers, yet your own army is <10% anti-infantry! You gave the solutions- a Fireblade would be a phenomenal advantage in this list, increasing the number of S5 shots by a massive amount! Also, we c...

Re: Normal Crisis converted to Commanders/Coldstars

Hey guys, I have a bunch of 4th ed crisis suits, which used to be interchangeable with commanders. I own no new commanders. The new commander model is big and on a bigger base as far as I can tell. Coldstars too. For tournaments, do I need to get new models or is there a way to convert normal crisi...

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

Here's my issue with despecialized XV8 teams. Sure, you may put a mix of weapons on an XV8 team, and sure they may split-fire at any target they choose. However, the question remains- will the XV8s physically be able to do so within their range requirements? Putting a CIB on an XV8 means you need si...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Honestly that's a tough question- it comes down to this: Do you want a unit that's mathematically powerful but whose role isn't needed in the list (like a Fusion Commander) or a unit that's mathematically only mid-tier but whose role could be viable (like a Ghostkeel)? Sounds like you are trending ...

Re: Nomenclature for Standard T'au Cadre

Honour Guard units and dedicated escort forces are a different matter - they do permanently accompany Ethereals and other high-ranking VIPs from place to place to make sure nothing happens to them. So someone like Aun'Va could decide to accompany a regular old Hunter Cadre for whatever reason, then...
