Re: EWO on a Stormsurge an absolute MUST!

Yes the EWO will probably deter a deepstrike and charge directly against the Stormsurge, but you should already have units in the way to prevent that, and it doesn't prevent charges against much else unless the whole unit is extremely close to the Stormsurge. Great point. I'm thinking i can make my...

Re: EWO on a Stormsurge an absolute MUST!

Well put! Those are my thoughts exactly. I never thought about the anchors and how you will need to be always moving to keep out of charge distance. BUT MAYBE that where an EWO helps ;)

Re: EWO on a Stormsurge an absolute MUST!

Great thoughts GI. I see your point for the 6+ FNP. I guess I just place more value on the area denial aspect of the EWO. What are your thoughts on the two larger weapon choices?

EWO on a Stormsurge an absolute MUST!

Can we all just take a brief moment to relish in the glory that is EWO on a Stormsurge. What a great deepstriking denial unit and if you deepstrike in too close, POW, POW POW x like 40 with no 6's only shenanigans like Overwatch does). It's great and a SG and EWO in my humble opinion are auto includ...

Re: Breachers and how to use them

Here's how I use Breachers (They are so costly, but I love their look so i use them). You will need a devilfish, Darkstrider and 10 breachers. It's all about pre-measuring where things are likely to be. Let me say that again, you want to put them where the enemy will likely be in optimal range. This...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

In short, no. Not until we have a codex with combos, stratagems, and other tricks. We have zero tricks and only markerlight combos. And funny thing is your opponent knows to kill your MLs first...

Re: Frontline Gaming - Chapter Approved - Review Discussion

I guess the stratagem is pretty good. But we still are at BS4 4+, NIDS can have their shooty bugs at BS 3+, sooooo why are Starship Trooper esq bugs BETTER than Tau shooting? (Shooting twice, & better weapons) Everything has BS 4+ (except ork boys but they can't hit anything because they are bea...

Re: Frontline Gaming - Chapter Approved - Review Discussion

Why does GW hate T'au players? The codex better see some significant stratagems. Everyone can shoot better than T'au. Where is the special finessing that it takes to play T'au?

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my Breachers! I use them to way more effect than Strike Teams, every game, all the time.

Re: My tournament 2000pts list

It's only a -2, not -3. Having multiple drone does not stack. And you will need to be >12" away also, otherwise it's only the -1.

Re: Do you paint in batches, or one-by-one?

Units/troops = 100% batches (so much more efficient!)

Single models = One at at time

Re: The Tau Sorcerer

I can see T'au getting a psycher through their allies. Like a cool kroot shaper, or better from some alien ally.

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

ATS is worth it as long as you cannot take an additional weapon. So, Ghostkeels, Riptides, SS, and the like. Suits you always want more weapon systems over ATS.

Re: 1500 for tournament

A drone controller somewhere would greatly increase the gun drones accuracy. I'd try and find a place, but i like the gun drones.

Re: new tau player need advice

Buy what looks cool, you're going to be painting these models, might as well like the look of them. My personal favs are the ghostkeel, commanders, riptide, Stormsurge, and breachers! Love me some good Breachers!

Re: 2000 points competitive tournament list

Love the Breacher team with the Guardian Drone inside the Devilfish. Best way to play T'au aggressive. Also, i like the Coldstar and the Breacher team to capture objectives.
