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...

Had you seen this? viewtopic.php?f=34&t=25614 Oh totally, but I like mine better, it's simpler and way easier to read. And it adds a scoring metric which you can tweak personally. So, I feel that I'm not alone when looking at those HUGE tables, you get lost and the important info needed to be s...

T'au unit efficiency analysis

http://i.imgur.com/sOmYNpc.png https://www.dropbox.com/s/1y5zkc1i2kiyqjx/40k.xlsx?dl=0 Hello ATT community! I recently did some analysis on the units in Index: Xenos 2 for our T'au and wanted to share this spreadsheet with everyone. The premise for this analysis is around efficiency and comparing s...

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.

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

We won't know until we see the new T'au codex. Hold on to your butts. Panzer & Lechai Skull are my favorite forum contributors, and you both have valid points. This happened every time a new codex is released. Power-creeeeep. We will get our cool ability hopefully in time. I have no idea what it...

I am so lost on how to read this. What do the number represent? Chance of hitting? Of doing damage? If so how much?

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

For me it's a time commitment thing. MWG is nice because they are fast with their editing. Tabletop tactics could use quite a bit of trimming imho to bring their videos to be under 1 hour at least! When I used to do Warhammer Fantasy battle reports I would try to keep it under 15 mins. People get bo...

Re: SM Reivers Tactica Spotlight

An interesting note, it also mentions it being a good way to deal with units that have +BS in overwatch, which I didn't think was a thing as it says overwatch ALWAYS hits on a 6+ regardless of BS. Is that foreshadowing some future rules/abilities maybe? Or did I miss something? I'm totally thinking...

Re: Abusing the fly rule for falling back

Don't forget, all because the Dfish is locked in combat, doesn't mean it can't disgorge it's precious cargo before it falls back. This is a great way to deliver a Breacher team. Just need to be careful of using this tactic against a unit that can bubble wrap the whole fish and deny you a disembark....

Re: 2000pt Balanced Tournament List

I agree. Drop the 2nd Devilfish. Take seekers on Longstrike. Love the Kroot Hounds! Totally overlooked. Also yeah, I'm a fan of 4 FB Commander and a Coldstar to zoom around the board grab objectives or character snipe. Wait character snipe? How when they bubble wrap their characters. What you do is ...

Re: New Codexes announced

Guys, T'au are good now. Sure, they are not an easy win with a Riptide wing from 7th edition, but was that fun for anyone? I'm expecting more unique rules and command traits I wouldn't expect another complete overhaul. It would be nice to get something that will play in the psychic phase. My predict...
