Just to check I'm doing this right:

Passengers have to get out before a transport moves
Falling back is counted as moving
If a transport is engaged in combat, the passengers get out and set up 3" away and then the transport falls back.

Re: Stealth Suit Edge Effect

Edit: looking at some pictures the suits that look great don't seem to be all black. I have found some information on how the 'Eavy Metal team get their black to look as cool as it does. For a classic ‘Eavy Metal (blue/black) style do not start with a pure black basecoat. Use a dark to very dark bl...

Re: Uplinked Markerlights and traditionally "overcosted" units

Arka0415 thank you for this analysis. I often see your name next to a well written post whose points are backed-up by maths - you are a credit to the community! I see myself using this stratagem to run a small unit of pathfinders that I can be more confident will survive. 1. Pathfinders set up out o...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

My suggestion is based on the pathfinders hitting with their markerlights on a 2+ regardless of hit modifiers. I'd even ditch the "if 5 or more target the same thing" bit and keep it a flat 2+ hit as long as they don't move. Markerlights provide a benefit and should have a tax. The current...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

What about a special rule for pathfinders like: If 5 or more pathfinders fire their markerlights at the same target, add a markerlight token for every hit roll of 2+. If the unit has moved in the movement phase of the current turn, it cannot benefit from this effect. Instead of 10-12 pathfinders to ...

Re: 2000 pts highly competitive/perfect Tau list

So, if anyone wondered why I took the Vanguard Detachment...it allows you to take 2 more Commanders with a minimum point waste on 3 elite choices, in this case 24 points for the Firesight Marksman per unit. Does the tournament you want to enter have a rule that prevents you from taking two of the s...

Re: 'Ninja Tau' and the New Codex

The idea of the Stealth Suit Stratagem is to give them a 14" move to drop their homing beacon somewhere useful and allow you to deploy a little more defensively.

'Ninja Tau' and the New Codex

I've been playing around with a ninja tau list and would like to see stratagems that make this play style more viable and encourage those who choose it to pick other Battlesuits rather than just Commanders. The roll off for 'who goes first' change also hurt. The potential for your Stealthsuits to be...

Re: Stealth Suit Edge Effect

I had not heard of glazed highlights before reading your post. An interesting technique and, I suppose, the way they have got those really nice colour gradients across the flat panels. I will be giving that a go on a drone - the large flat top surface will be a perfect test bed for painting larger s...

Re: Stealth Suit Edge Effect

Any tips on how I could darken this one and how I could make the other models better from the start? The two coats of Russ Grey have lightened it. You could darken it by painting The Fang over the top of it. If the scheme on the ghostkeel is what you want then leave out the Russ Grey layers on futu...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

I think most of us can agree this: Commanders don't need a nerf, but rather, our army needs targeted buffs I agree entirely. Based on the codex releases so far it seems like it will only get worse with the 'relic' options for commanders. The ability to give those type of upgrades to riptides, broad...

Re: Warhammer Community posts AdMech Preview

Forge World Focus: Mars The situation they describe is how I feel the meta is shifting. They talk about a large number (20) of elites being buffed by a character. Having lots of expensive units is too easily countered in 8th. If the enemy dumps a troop blob on an objective those shiny High Strength...

Flamers auto hit even if you advance. Target lock can be swapped for something else.

Re: 2000pts - All suits + pathfinders

I like the ideas in your list. Low drops to get that first turn strike and the suits to do the damage and a big stompy robot with EWO to protect those pathfinders and dish up some damage to boot. Couple of things: XV8 Crisis Battlesuits [14 PL, 244pts]: 5x MV1 Gun Drone . Crisis Shas'ui: Advanced ta...

Below is the latest fire warrior I have painted. I've tried steel legion drab for the khaki and have gone for more minimal highlights. I have photographed him on both a desert base and a grey base to help me make a final decision so let me know what you think! http://i.imgur.com/S56GtvS.png http://i...
