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.

Re: Just went undefeated itc three rounds

For sure, sorry to not add more details... One thing plan on going last... I always did. All the heavy hitters are in reserves, the yvharahas a billion drones near to soak firepower... That's the way to do it! :) I also upgraded every firewarriors squad to a leader with pistol and markerlights roug...

Re: 1000 Points Mechanized Tau

Could you briefly explain your intended tactics here?

I assume three Breacher-loaded Devilfish operating as a big mechanized pack, pair of Hammerheads for anti-tank, and then lots of miscellaneous backfield infantry? How do you intend to use the Strike Team and Rail Rifle Pathfinders?

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

I took your earlier advice, Arka, and went with a little less in some places (like replacing a few Strike Teams, taking a few synergy units, like MB3 recon drones for some tasty assault bonuses on my 3 Dfish, as well as an Ethereal for re-rolling ones and Sense of Stone as well as morale.) I put in...

Re: Flamers and overwatch- not actually that useful?

So, at my local GW shop, I took my cir/flamer ghost keel and was fighting nurgle's demons. They charge my GK from 10 inches, successfully. I'm told by the store manager that I can't flame them as they're out of range. But... They're literally running into hand to hand combat, to 0 inches, how can t...

Re: Has anyone modeled an ATS?

I use the bottom portion of a marker drone with a small magnet to represent it. It works alright, the only issue I have is that sometimes it only wants to sit on one shoulder on my XV-8's but looks good on everything else. I might add a magnet to to tops of some of my weapons to mount it instead wh...

I expect they need to get through this new AoS release before they get back to 40k. The March 24th estimate still looks pretty good.

Re: List building, help! 1750pt 1v1v1

I'll be ordering a bunch of weapons from Red Dog Mini's so I'll be able to field that many CIB's without proxying. Unsure whether I'll be allowed to proxy the ethereal but seeing how it's not a tournament game I should be ok. Red Dog makes some great weapons- I use Red Dog CIBs too, you can check t...

Just curious- I know there's no official bit to represent ATS, but has anyone modeled their own bit for it?

Re: Fusion Collider vs. Cyclic Ion Raker... thoughts?

Thanks for that. I think I'm still in the new person phase and being blinded by the numbers as I REALLY seem to gravitate towards fusion weapons for the AP score, the strength and that D6 damage. Working hard to get myself beyond that. Fusion Blasters pack a huge punch- there are few things in the ...

Re: Fusion Collider vs. Cyclic Ion Raker... thoughts?

There's been some discussion of this in the past, but I can't seem to find the old thread. Our conclusions were as follows, if I recall correctly: - The best all-around loadout is CIR, 2x Burst Cannons, Target Lock, ATS for anti-infantry and "pocket" anti-vehicle - The best Fusion loadout ...

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

Looks like a great collection! Not having any Commanders might be an issue for making an Index list, but otherwise the Fireblade, Longstrike, Fire Warriors, XV8s, Stealthsuits, Pathfinders, and Sun Shark will be excellent choices for an army. Looking at what you have, I assume you'll want to run an ...

Re: List building, help! 1750pt 1v1v1

Welcome to ATT! :D Looking at your collection and the points level for the game, it looks like you need to field everything you have in order to hit the points limit. That's okay, but it means you'll need to field things in a less-than-competitive configuration. I'd guess that you could make a stron...

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

Long time gamer of various game systems and genres but recently got pulled into 40K by a friend who hadn't played 40K since about the 3rd Edition. So, learning the rules and learning the Tau as I go (Friend plays Dark Angels). The models were just too cool to pass up and it seems EVERYONE plays som...

Re: Ghostkeel tactica

I like running the all FusionKeel with a Velocity Tracker. I figure, if he's gonna be hard pressed to make up his points anyway, specialize him even further towards flyers, of which there are many. Suddenly you are a great flyer hunter hitting on 3+ with 3 to 5 shots, possibly with re-roll 1s assum...
