Re: XV8 Crisis Magnetising

I superglue one magnet in the suit first (usually the arm), when the bond is dry I then flip another magnet on to it and then dry fit the weapon on it, sliding the weapon off with the magnet in it and as soon as you can see the magnet holding it in place with a finger nail. Then fill the hole with t...

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

Great topic to bring up, Arka! Thanks! I think it's important to keep re-visiting things in the meta- certain units tend to trend for a while due to synergies, and people write lists using them, then the discussion fades away. Revisiting these topics lets us assess whether the theoryhammer that see...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Well those 2 posts on imgur are what I would expect.. Tau stat lines are ok, they are known for their guns, so this might warrent some positive adjustments on the guns where we actually want it. It's scary that this was actual game design for Age of Sigmar when it came out a few years back. Where d...

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

If the Homing Beacon trick isn't ultimately that viable, are people still using Stealthsuits? Objective holders, or cheap Drone Controller caddies, or for some other role? Maybe it isn't that black and white to be honest, even if the HB trick with QFC isn't that viable the sealthsuits have other pu...

Re: Silly question about modelling pathfinders

I think that if you equip them with say Ion, you pay 5+7, right? If so, I recommend treat a Path like a 5+3 model. Ezreon's post seemed to suggest that the Markerlight is optional on the Pulse Carbine, which isn't the case. You aren't paying for an "option", you're paying that the model c...

Re: Steg's Sa'cea Septs battles

Now that you mention it with the stratagem he did use that, but because I had first turn I already wiped out most of his cultist before he was able to do so. Yeah, going first really kills it. It's if DG get the first turn that things get crazy. The surefire way to beat it is to use Flamer XV8s to ...

Re: Steg's Sa'cea Septs battles

Well it was his idea to use the cultist as fodder for the Poxwalkers, but I don't believe he ever made the poxwalker untargetable.. But I do believe that the ruling during the tournament was also that they can't absorb from the cultists. I believe the wording on the "making a new poxwalker&quo...

Re: Steg's Sa'cea Septs battles

Man, that's a lot of Death Guard! It looks like you did well though. Were any of them running Poxwalkers for the Cloud of Flies + Walking Pox combo? Not that I noticed no.. But as you can tell (maybe) the first 2 lists were not real competative builds. Honestly the first list looks like a netlist t...

Army lists from my opponent from memory.. that might be a bit incomplete / inaccurate Game 1 vs Death Guard and some Cultists Deployment 3 Search and D...

I have a couple thoughts on this rumour and we will see what you guys think. I personally don't believe that the next two codexes will be thousand sons and adeptus custodes. The article where they were announced says this year they will be released and doesn't say they are next anywhere. https://ww...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

well my FLGS is doing a restocking of warhammer goods and one of the "needs to go" items (no longer standard stock) was the crisis suit box.
And my GW shop is also doing a restock with loads of stuff going off the shelf.. didn't notice any tau amongst it though
