Re: Spin the Bottle

if you use the devilfish with the cadre fireblade use the gun drones on the fish as they will benefit the volleyfire rule also

Re: 1000 pt list

looks solid enough but isn't 3 pathfinder units a bit too much? What is your reasoning for using 3 groups?

Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

I play them by dropping them in by Homing beacon indeed, and had 1 time in turn one my stealthsuits killed but also with shooting and a heavy hitting dread and wolf character charging in. But I deploy them with 5 Gun drones and 1 Shield drone to give them even more punch. I let the flamers go first ...

Re: How do you transport/case your drones?

I swapped out the flayingstand bases for normal black 32mm bases and magentized those so they would stick to the rubber sheeting I used in plastic carry boxes.. not very space efficiant but works well. You can even stick the rubber sheeting on the sides of the box to create more "sticking"...

Re: Fast dice rolling and saviour Protocol

Yeah, the proper flowchart would be: 1. Roll to hit 2. Roll to wound 3. Choose whether or not to use Savior Protocols. If yes, proceed, if no, skip to (a). 4. Roll to save 5. Calculate damage 6. Roll "FNP" saves if applicable (a) One drone suffers a mortal wound (b) Roll "FNP" s...

Re: Are ethereals killing our troops? Calm of tides question

This (for the morale stuff) added a little text for clarity Well, I'm definitely wrong about the Drones, but I think I'm right about Calm of Tides! Check out this quote from the rulebook: To take a Morale test, roll a dice and add the number of models from the unit that have been slain this turn. If...

Re: New Battle force (for t'au and others)

Same box as last year but instead of the Broadside it has a second unit of Stealth Suits. Not sure whether that's good or not. The Broadside has an awesome model but is quite overpriced currently....but I already have two Stealth Suit units. :D There is more difference compared to last years box th...

Re: New Battle force (for t'au and others)

last year those boxes are prized at 130 Euro

And there is probably a page missing for the 4th 40k box (most likely spez mahrinez as there is again a box for Stormcast in the AoS section)

is worth it to have the Seekers on the Devilfish? could save some point to invest in another Firewarrior or pathfinder

Re: New player- stuck on guardian drones

Shas'ui with lower part in Sept color while a Shas'vre has upper (bigger) part in Sept color.. and the Shas'o with the full shoulder guard in Sept coloring Anything on the vehicle drivers / copilots on ranks?

Re: Start Collecting box and 4th ed. conversion advice

also take into account that if you want several detachment with each their sept rulings that you have to make sure they are different per detachment (base coloring / marking should suffice)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ah yes, my use of the word resilience is maybe a bad pick. Having a diminished warp signature (if you can call it that way) is what I meant. And indeed it's versus the mind control aspects I have read it. So being targeted by a magical bolt won't help with that much.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I agree with PeeJ. And really disagree with StealthKnightSteg. Would such a rule help us? Sure. Would it make sense and fit the army. Not even a little bit. T'au aren't particularly resilient to warp shenanigans. We don't have something like an army wide shadow of the warp like Tyranids. The T'au w...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I agree on keeping the psychic phase clean from our medling. Though! I do think we need something to counter the opponents "free" phase there.. A army wide ability: "T'au a very resilient to the effects of the Warp, enemy psykers targeting a T'au unit must subtract 2 from the total ca...

Re: 1k list loadout ok?

Almost, 5 gun drones, 4 ML drones, 6 Shield drones (and 2 gun drones for the Piranha), but what you propose could work with thos numbers still, but in the end isn't it just shuffling around stuff?? As I feel that the gun drones with the XV8 are at a better place if they deploy near my Stealth suits...
