Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

At last! Official confirmation! Well, now we can at least get started figuring out actual details of the Codex without going on rumors and wishlisting! So, we know thanks to this article that there will be six Sept Tactics. Thanks to the Sept keywords of special characters in the Index, we already ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Forgot about that. I always put darkstrider and fireblades toghether, so I always think they are named characters. But ethereals and fireblades are extremely circumstatial. You don't want to put them in battlesuit lists for instance. I'd agree with the Cadre, but why not with etereals? Their bonuse...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What do they mean by army-wide sept traits? They mean Sept Tactics. The Tau version of Space Marine Chapter Tactics, Guard Regimental Tactics, Eldar Craftworld Tactics, etc. But they said "for the first time ever" We had sept traits in 7e, didn't we? No we did not. 8th is the first time t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ke'Lshan and Dal'yth both used by FW characters don't know if that makes them more or less likely, as unlike death corps and elysian they aren't different armies in their own right, also I own R'ymr so I hope atleast Dal'yth is included :D That's a great point actually, I forgot that Dal'yth was us...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Haechi, you are the man! Thanks for giving us as much as you can and keeping the Tau spirit alive! Points drops and weapon adjustments across the board! Commander spam is going away! Riptides (my first and overall favorite Tau models) are gonna be good and terrifying again! It is a good day to be a ...

Re: How do you get markerlights ?

There are three dedicated Markerlight units currently. Pathfinders and Marker Drones are the two principle ML sources within the Tau Index, as well as Tetras from Forge World. These three units exist solely to provide ML support to the rest of the army. There are also quite a few units that can prov...

Re: Usage of PEN and Warlord Traits

Thank you everyone for your feedback so far! So, in conclusion, the clear winner from Chapter Approved (or perhaps I should call it Cadre (Fireblade) Approved) is the Cadre Fireblade. He is arguably the best option for the PEN chip, he's the only logical recipient of our only good warlord trait, an...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

All crisis suits are Shas'vre. The only suits that it applies to are Stealth Suits and they tend to operate solo in the fluff anyway, so they wouldn't get Marker support. Um, no. Most Crisis Suits are Shas'Uis. Crisis Team leaders are Shas'Vres. This is actually how it works for most battlesuit tea...

Re: Usage of PEN and Warlord Traits

To start this off, we should do a quick analysis of the PEN chip and the warlord traits, just so that we know what we're working with. Then, we will analyze options for each one and determine who is best suited for the relic/trait (if anyone) and whether or not it's worth taking. Note that I will be...

Re: Alert! Black Library Submissions are Now Open!

I'm definitely gonna be submitting something for Inferno. I actually got a callback a couple years ago when GW was looking for some freelance writers back in 7th edition, but due to real life I couldn't complete the application process (I will forever kick myself knowing that I could have written so...

Re: 40k as Post-Apocalyptic Narrative - Are Tau the "Good Guys"?

I was indeed an English major, focused a bit more on writing side of things but took more than my fair share of analysis classes. So, ever thought about writing some WH40k Tau stories? We have a story series for those who want to take a crack at writing called: Seeds of Life . There is a post that ...

Re: Rules and helper parts for playing apocalypse

But there should also be a place for playing with your entire collection without having to give up an entire weekend and have to spend 100s of dollars with renting a space and other costs. If you want to do that, then you just need to add rules for streamlining. Play on a flat board (terrain but no...

Re: Y'vahra head (lost) replacement?

Having just built my Y'Vahra a few weeks ago and having built a couple Riptides over the years, hopefully I can give you some help. The standard Riptide heads are slightly smaller than the Y'Vahra head, and don't really mesh as well with the more sleek design of the Y'Vahra, but they would fit alrig...

Re: Rules and helper parts for playing apocalypse

Yes, Apoc games take all day, sometimes multiple days. That is Apoc. That is how it has been from the get go. I've played in multiple Apoc games over the years, games that had generally 4 to 6 players on each team, and they always take at least a full day to play. That's the point. Apoc isn't suppos...

Re: Rules and helper parts for playing apocalypse

I'm sorry, what? Apoc is unplayable thanks to CA? How? Having read through the rules for Apoc is CA, I fail to see any standout issues regarding how they have it set up now. In fact, in reality it's pretty much the same as its always been, GW just managed to cut down a book bigger than the BRB into ...
