Re: Start Collecting disappears in the US

Even more interesting. The Cadre Fireblade is also no longer available in the US.

That's a shock, since it was fairly new and also the only fireblade model they had. I wonder if it's a screw up on the web team's behalf?

Re: Competitive Tau

Yes it does feel wrong. So far there are only two areas I am not keen on in 8th which is the lack of blast markers and the LOS/Cover rules. Which I feel have been over streamlined. Apart from that 8th is going great even as Tau. I agree with you on both points. They didn't do a good job translating...

Re: Competitive Tau

It’s a little cheesy but as I understand the rules the Pathfinders being embarked can draw line of site from the top tall turret, while the main hull is behind cover. While I agree with you it feels wrong, the rules as written seem to support this (although 8th has a number of LOS rules that leave ...

Re: A use for sniper drones?

Back on topic here, I'm planning to run a unit of 6-7 sniper drones in my next match against my roomates IG. Along with my feeling that they are slightly over-costed the lack of the mortal wound component on the snipers makes me feel bad about taking them as I feel they are so situational they are b...

Re: Battle Reflections: Tau vs. SM + AdMech, 3000pts

I'm going to agree with Maxwell on the stealth suits. I've played 5 games of 8th and they are embarrassingly difficult to kill, although they rarely kill much in return. -1 to hit, T4, 2W 2+ save models (when in cover). I've had tons of firepower dumped into them and still one survives to drop a hom...

Re: A use for sniper drones?

I would suggest instead using them up close with a stealth unit with a drone controller. You can use the rapid fire range which makes them far more efficient.

Re: Antao 8th Edition Cadre [Battlefield Update]

We're back this time with something a little different! My favorite part of warhammer is the effect of seeing a painted army on a matching, well laid out battle field. Because of this when I started my arid climate themed hunter cadre I also purchased a desert battlemat from Pwork games and I've com...

Re: nix0n's "Battle Worn Cadre" [WIP log]

Keep up the good work. Like where the cadre is headed. I've never understood why people use pin vices or hand drills, takes forever and hurts my fingers. I just use a craftsman bolt-on battery powered drill that also doubles as a jigsaw for cutting terrain bases. So much easier.

Pile In

Hello all, Ran across a someone strange seeming situation yesterday watching a game between friends. In this game / picture below the red dots (Tyranid Warriors) had just charged the green dots (Guardsmen). Their charge move left them positioned roughly pictured.

Re: Asking for advice on purchases

First and foremost. Rip all the guns and support systems off your suits if possible and magnetize them. You're going to end up doing it someday anyway, might as well start early. There are good guides on this site that explain the process, but it's really not that hard and makes a world of differenc...

Re: Review of Units for Competitive List

I suggest you bring the pulse accelerator drones along as well to increase their pulse carbine range to 24 inch to be more effective. Unless there is an FAQ somewhere I missed the Pulse Accelerator Drone does not affect Drones carrying Carbines as they do not have the INFANTRY keyword. That aside, ...

Re: Tau Commander

I actually quite like the concept, but there is something that looks a little off. Not a fan of the ghostkeel head on the commander. I don't think it looks right, and 2 it breaks the main part of the motion that needs to be communicated. The commander is obviously flying by a target, shooting it wit...

Re: Use crisis model as commander units

Short version: A xv8 crisis model can be used 100% legal as a commander? Or is counted as proxy? I can be forbid from doing it? Others have answered already in various forms but I'll toss my take in on it as well. In the games truest form, you should be using the commander model. Yes in the past th...

Re: Struggling with space marines

The Raven Guard Chapter Tactic is fine imo. Keep in mind that we're still playing with our Index. To expect being on the exact same power level as Space Marines with their new Codex is delusional. ^^ Going to have to disagree here, I just played a Tau vs IG game in the Cloak and Shadows mission?
