Re: Breachers are still good

I had a Tau on Tau game this past week, and boy do breachers get the job done. I had hoped my firewarrior blob would have done more, but it was the breachers that did the most. They killed two out of a three man crisis suit team after their devilfish got nuked. They moved up close and then unleashed...

Re: Space Marine Flyers

And now flyer spam is not a thing to worry about :P the sound of feet being pulled out of mouths everywhere resounds with a deafening crescendo... GW just released in their FAQ that flyers do not count toward the amount of units on the board. So now you can kill the one or two tactical squads and R...

Re: What's the best support systems for a stormsurge?

I'd have to say ATS, EWO, and Shield Gen. I was on the fence about the shields, what with it being so expensive, but someone like a guard player can ruin your day with multiple damage weapons. EWO all of the yes. Your Blood angel player deploys 6 units turn one? That's 6 extra free shooting phases f...

Post 1st game thoughts (Tau v. Tau)

Had my first game of 8th yesterday against another Tau army - both of us had not played since 6th. I gave my friend extra points (didn't count to begin with as it was a friendly game, but it amounted to 250 extra points) so that he could try out his old units this edition and we could see what works...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Bork'an:
Warriors from this great sept are learned and erudite.

Rule: Lawyerly
You may read one rule out of your Codex or your opponent's as RAW instead of RAI.


:P ;)

No takers??? Awwww

Re: T'au unit efficiency analysis

I'm glad someone else with credentials created something, especially with weighted values! The only other thing I would suggest (I am an accountant with a minor in data/business analytics) would be to add at least two standard deviations (95% all rolls you'll make with an error of .05) and test p va...

Re: Pathfinders: Ion Rifles or Rail Rifles (or none)

See, the one thing we miss (especially in this edition) is the proliferation of S9 weapons. We have railheads, which are pricy, or even R'alai, but we need massed, reliable anti vehicle firepower. You can spam fusion blasters, but they'll be within nose hair distance of anything that can beat them u...

Re: Image Hosting Options

It's a bit situational, but one trick I've found is blogger. If you open an image posted on blogger in a separate tab, copy the URL for it and paste it into an Img tag on the forum, it will post the image. That's how I've been handling all my images on here. The only drawback is you need to have a ...

Re: Tau Take 2nd Place at Wet Coast GT 2017

I'm glad for the input guys! I'm also glad something else other than commander spam did good. My only critique of his list (besides the commanders) is the amount of pathfinders he used - I have 10 in my 1500 list but that's because I have units that will largely benefit from them. Not to say 2+ rero...

Re: Breachers are still good

MWG just put up a videorep with a new guy using breachers. He was able to get one squad into position and nuke a venerable Dreadnought over a turn and two overwatches. Not their primary target of course but I was surprised they held up to the dang thing. Survived some heavy flamer attacks and close ...

Re: SM Reivers Tactica Spotlight

If they're assaulting your fire warriors, it means they aren't focusing on your suits, which is pretty funny. Even more humorous will be the face of your opponent when you fall back from combat and then blast them to smithereens :evil: While it may be a giant middle finger to Tau players, they seem ...

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

Has anyone been able to test R'Alai yet? He was a staple in my non-tournament lists and I'm curious as to how he's held up in practice. I'm going to take him out for a spin and I'll let you know.
