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.

Re: 750 points patrol army

No I love the Guardian drone with a Breacher team. I think it's actually very good and very points effective. I'm a fan, keep the Breachers and the drone!

I would take 3 flamers on your Crisis Suits (But perhaps; like me, you've only modeled them with two flamers).

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

Definitely 100% agree with the Cold Star Commander, the Gun Drones and the Quad FB Commander. I would add... Breacher Teams with DS in a DF with a guardian drone melt elite infantry and scary units. And if you are taking a DF you want to take a unit of 10 of these bad boys. I really like how T'au ar...

Re: Vehicle movement

Rules lawyer time: No part of the vehicle can move more than it's total allotment for movement. Therefore, you have to take into consideration turning when moving. If your back left corner wants to turn 180 degrees, you need to measure from one spot to one spot and have that same corner move no more...

Re: What's the rationale behind differently-colored helmets, armor plates, etc?

Truth is its all aesthetics. So paint however you want. I like the differentiation of the different ranks by helmets and marking so i do it too. It's thematic and visually appealing painting-wise.

Re: Let's Talk Ghostkeels!

I like the fusionkeel best and have him be a scary hard to hit threat. Deploy him aggressive near an objective and don't let him get into combat. I pair him with my stealthsuits. If a mob of ork boyz charges run if he's not with his stealthsuits. That -1 to hit is INSANELY GOOD! And the Ghostkeel's ...

Re: T'au unit efficiency analysis

Minor thing, you should probably double the PR hits to account for Rapid Fire. Oh I totally did. They just hit on a 4+ so it's a 50% chance to hit which is why you only see the 1. There seems to be an error with the Stealth FB though, avg W and avg D should not be the same, see FB commander. You se...

Re: T'au unit efficiency analysis

Edit: I'm sure this is adjustable with those weightings, though! You betcha! Thanks! Like I've beat over the head in other threads, averages (in damage) do not tell the entire picture. It's absurd to use only averages when they might actually mislead you! :D Great point and good suggestions! p-valu...

Re: Pathfinders: Ion Rifles or Rail Rifles (or none)

Neither, unless you think the models look cool. You have plenty of other toys for your opponent to be concerned about. Also, it will make your PF more of a target with scary -AP weapons. So I opt for more ML.
