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

Let's take a step back though. Warhammer 40,000 is a game, and in competitive games, players min-max. Honestly, that's how anyone competes at anything really. You choose a specialization, you pour everything you have into perfecting that specialization, and you actively avoid scenarios where your w...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm not confident in a new Start Collecting option for T'au. The old box just got repackaged over the last month or so.

Sure. It wasn't terribly difficult. I'll take some pictures and post later today.

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

I think that Ghostkeels are fine, but are overshadowed by Commanders somewhat. As metas continue to develop and we start seeing more swarms, I think that Ghostkeel stock will begin to rise since they are not as vulnerable to being locked away from their targets as Commanders, which are able to be bl...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Any chance that Tau codex will be released this year? Just hope... :P Well, this month we're getting Guard and either Craftworld or Tyranids. Next month will be whichever of those we didn't see, and potentially a second book. December will be Chapter Approved and perhaps another book. That's two sh...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

the current overall tank prices are fine, No it really isn't. Compare it with a Lascannon Razorback/Predator. It goes farther than that. The expected output on a Lascannon Predator against T8 models is 36.6 points per-wound from 48" (provided it doesn't move). This is before you factor in Guil...

Am waiting (im)patiently for someone to do a Y'vahra-style triple flamer for a Riptide suit conversion. Anyone have on in-the-works?

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

My opinion on Ghostkeels is that they're okay. Obviously out-classed by Fusion Commanders, but this, I think based on all reasonable assumption, is temporary until December when Chapter Approved comes out and Fusion Commanders see a substantial point increase. Fusion Ghostkeels have a crazy damage c...

Re: Where to go after start collecting box?

Greetings, Shas’la. Now that you’ve purchased your Start Collecting T’au set and have taken your first steps towards serving the Greater Good, you most likely find yourself asking the eternal question of all aspirants: “What do I buy next, fam?”. Well, that’s largely a matter of opinion, but convent...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What we really need is support/signature systems that are worth taking in that 4th (and maybe even in the third) hardpoint over the value of massed bs 2+ fusion shooting. Do that and his cost is probably fine. A commander should be designed to make your crisis suits better, not simply to be a bette...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Your changes would make them pretty close to eachother though I really wouldn't take the Commanders 4th hardpoint. I'm not convinced that taking the Commander's 4th hardpoint should be part of any balance approach; it was just a factor I was humoring while looking at a hypothetical rebalancing scen...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Of course. BS2+ is WAY better than BS4+. I don't think changing the cost of them is going to do anything, the solution would be for GW to find a way to prevent spamming HQ. And that's for every army, not just for T'au. There is hidden value that's not really discussed in the scenario I laid out, sp...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Better support options for commanders than "just take quadfusion" Cheaper crisis suits Out of curiosity, I calculated the performance based on the following changes: 1. Increase the base cost of Commanders by 20 points 2. Remove the fourth weapon hardpoint from Commanders 3. Decrease base...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

that strangely feels like 7th ed I didn't mean to imply that they are spent traditionally like in 7th and previous editions. Just that each individual unit chooses how they benefit based on the volume of Markerlight tokens on the target. Sure, it feels like 7th, because it is partially reminiscent ...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

A lot of people talk about point changes in terms of nerfing or buffing, but I think a more interesting change to improve a lot of our army would be to make it easier to get +1 to hit with markerlights. Tau have always been overcosted for an army that hits on a 4+ but markerlights have always mitig...
