Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

You´re absolutely right!! The big boys went from being top notch to mere crap... What´s even worse than their enormously high price tag is the fact, that they lose BS when they´ve lost a certain number of LPs! So realistically, you pay for a model with crappy weapons and BS right from the beginning ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

@Temenniguru: the answer to your question is in my post. It's a popular tactic in tournaments. A Hazard with 4 Drones and DC is 26 points cheaper than a Commander with CIB . You deepstrike them in front of your Commanders and mostly have enough dakka to eliminate threats as well as a very effective ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Hazard suits with DBC, DC and 4 gundrones each can fulfill a very important role, when played with Commanders or Y'Vahras. When you deepstrike your precious Commanders or jump forward with your Yvies, you will have little (Commanders) to no (Yvies) drones within 3“. So the Hazards are the ideal unit...

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

No problem. Here are some of the lists. They were all Top 5 and first place finishers in big German tournaments: 1. TauEmpire: Outrider Detachment - 482 Punkte *************** 1 HQ *************** Ethereal - Hover drone - - - > 50 Punkte *************** 6 Sturm *************** Tactical Drones - 10 x...

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

Drone squad size depends on what config you are playing. If you are playing the gun drone version, you pick the Commanders with their two drones and an Outrider Detachment with 6 squads of 5 drones (in Germany, we currently play with 1850 pts, but that´s quite likely to be changed to 2000 pts in the...

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

That is an interesting alternative...although I cannot imagine, how this build should be stronger than a pure Commander spam. Anyway I´m sick and tired of always playing the same build to stand any chances in tournaments. So hopefully hopefully hopefully our Codex will find back to its former glory ...

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

I play Commanders, gundrones, firesight marksmen, Kroot Hounds and a Fireblade myself. While this list is quite effective, it cannot match the efficiency of the list with shield drones, marker drones and Commanders. The shield drones absorb damage incredibly well with their 4++ and 5+ FNP . The main...

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

Yes, I can definitely confirm that competitive Tau are top tier. Problem is that there is only ONE SINGLE build that can be played in a way to play with the big boys: It´s the Commander spam , either with shield drones or (which is the not quite so effective variant) with gun drones. In Germany seve...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

What a disappointment indeed!! Concerning matched play and the promise of a massive points adjustment, literally NOTHING has happened! The points alteration of FW units is completely uninteresting. The stratagem (a single one!!!) and the traits + the relic WITHOUT changing anything else are but a ba...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So would I, but 30 pts Sniper Drones would be near worthless if GW would not give them the JSJ special rule. I´ve always been a big fan of them, but that was mainly because you had a Buffmander who doesn´t currently exist and made them kick-ass along with the Ethereal (now Fireblade) AND the JSJ rul...

Oooops... :biggrin: You´re right about that! Seems that I can´t hide my plans for Tau world domination behind my "harmless" posts... No, honestly: I think a Snipersurge...as beautiful as it may sound... would definitely be op! On the other hand, Tau do need an effective means to defend the...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

@Folklore: Do you mean that if 5 Markerlights hit a character, every model in the Tau army would be able to shoot at that character? Whilst I would strongly encourage GW to develop exactly THIS special rule, I think it may be a tad op... ;O))) It would be nice though, if we´d get back the old system...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

@Grogalmighty: You are saying EXACTLY what I´m thinking: Currently, Tau (with the exception of the Commander-spam) suck at all cardinal 40k disciplines: Shooting, melee and PSI. I really do hope that GW will improve this situation by adding worthy stratagems! What I would like to see is the followin...

Re: Fully Airborne Army with Battlesuits

Just one quick question: Is it allowed to play more than one Coldstar Commanders? Apart from never having fielded one, it might be "outdated 7th. edition thinking", where the Coldstar was a sig sys just as the Iridium armor was.

Gentlemen, thanks a lot for your replies. They really helped me focussing my thoughts towards new concepts (even if I´m still pissed that we got nerfed so much...) and -as Shrike put it- away from "anachronistic 7th models"...and playstyles I might add! :P @ Shas´Bro: I am familiar with th...
