Re: Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric v2.0

Will do, I actually Battle Report all my game (well 95% of them) and have a thread up on these very forums. So far the list has trounced three people but I've yet to get it against as serious a challenge as I want. Hoping to fix that this weekend and end my use of proxies. :P

Re: How will you use Shield Drones, post-FAQ?

Been thinking a lot about these guys and I'm not sure where to go. Right now I'm playing Commander Spam with Gun Drones and they do die very quickly. Usually my opponent has to focus everything on them to get to the Commanders, this wouldn't change with Shield Drones. I would lose the firepower of t...

Re: Gauche's Battle Report Thread | Updated 7/23/17

Yes I've played many games of both Eternal War and Maelstrom. They aren't balanced at all, they aren't intended to be. Maelstrom has too much RNG and requires a house rule where you can discard cards that you can't possibly achieve for free, i.e. kill a x thing but your opponent doesn't have it. Ete...

Re: Gauche's Battle Report Thread | Updated 7/23/17

My meta plays the ITC Missions, I have very little love for 40K with the BRB Missions. Regardless of what army I play.

Re: Gauche's Battle Report Thread | Updated 7/23/17

I understand completely, it's a very competitive list. As I talked about in the game I am working on a toned down version for more casual games. In general I let me opponent know what I'm taking and ask what kind of a game they way. :]

2000 Point game against Death Guard, quite popular in my meta. Warning: If you hate Commanders you may be triggered by this Battle Report.

Gauche's Battle Report Thread | Updated 9/15/17

Hello, I maintain a thread with all my Battle Reports over on DakkaDakka but that also includes Ork games, so I figured it'd be a good idea to do one here just for my Tau games. Each of my Battle Reports is written with an optional post-game video, I've found that's a pretty good format. Whenever I ...

Converted Kroot Hounds?

I'm currently playing some Kroot Hounds in my list and have been proxying them as I don't like the models much and think they're a bit overpriced in terms of real-world cost. There are some other models that I like better from GW, such as Chaos Warhounds, but I don't feel they'd mesh well with Tau a...

Re: Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric

Yeah those are super minor tuning changes, I'd have to play to get a feel for that. 3 Drones may be the way to go, I need those Wounds and it gets me that much more shooting. Luckily I have enough for both so it's all good. Also lessens Morale on the Pathfinders, in this list I do not have the CPs t...

Re: Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric

No it's not a rule but everyone in my meta plays that way because it's a solid guideline and the tournaments will be going that way.

Updated the OP with some cool guy changes. :P

Re: Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric

I will edit the OP to mention the ITC Rules, however the Detachments are fairly standard and in the core rules as far as I know. It remains to be seen if they're tossed out the window but I haven't seen mention of that and think they're a good restriction. Although that's not really important for th...

Re: Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric

Sorry, we play ITC Missions in my area so KPs are not a concern. I should have put that in the OP, drops are not a concern either. I'm very happy my meta uses those rules because without them the game gets a bit suspect. Why do I need a boatload of Markerlights? I need one hit per target I plan to o...

Possible revision based on this thread and other threads: -6 Gun Drones (Cadres, 1 Strike Team) +12 Kroot Hounds (3 units) Lets all the Commanders Deep Strike, lessening the pain of 18" guns and making my army yet more durable against gonig second. Hounds can either stay back protect my Strike ...

Re: Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric

Yeah I am leaning towards one QFB Commander, I'd need to test against those types of lists to see if one can do the job. Overcharged CIBs are actually fine against Knights, especially with their 5++, but Land Raiders are another beast. I actually own and play a Green Tide army, pure Boyz with Charac...

Competitively Focused | 2000 Points Commander Centric v2.0

This list has been updated from its original form, both because of the (at time of posting) recent FAQ and my own play/theory experience. Hoping to get some more comments as the last round was very useful! ~Supreme Command Detachment~ Commander w/ 3 CIBs, ATS 2 Shield Drones Commander w/ 3 CIBs, ATS...
