Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Not everything, but close to it.
For example neither blood angels nor dark angels can take centurions.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I am pretty sure that kroots (and vespids) will get that "doesn't break the detachment" rule that AM auxiliaries have, the issue is that kroot need something changed otherwise they will lag even more behind because they will not be getting the Sept bonus.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

If it's explosive that's even better, more food for discussion. Post away! Think this is what's being referred to. https://imgur.com/a/9T0IL (Can't link images from Imgur sometimes for some reason) Did they just call us "indians with bazookas"? Pretty much, let's hope that whoever wrote t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Someone mentioned Astra Militarum, but my understanding is that Human nobles have some sort of immortality juice they give out to people they like. I suppose T'au could get something like that for the vets, but I largely suspect it was just GW handwaving and ignoring the issue, and I largely suspec...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The timeline jumped of over a century. Named characters should be dead. Would make sense that farsight, longstrike, etc. become titles for the ace in it's field instead of the actual characters. GW did it with tyranids characters so isn't a new thing. Don't the Tau have stasis technology? BTW the s...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm excited by the idea of new models. But as someone who just picked up the game a few months ago, I'm also dreading it. I haven't gotten a lot of use out of the models I already own. If new Crisis Suit models are released, for example, I'll feel tempted to buy. I was looking forward to a short pe...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Even the straight-forward Blood Angels have more synergies. Blood angels have great buffing HQs (including several named characters) and one of the best codices while still being (enough) internally balanced, i play blood angels and the only issues i have with the codex is with 2-3 units and a coup...

Re: Mordians

Officers don't give crazy buffs, they give good buffs and it is the army's force multiplier.
Anyway, can you give us the usual way he deploys his men?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ok, I like the idea of technology playing a part, maybe a drone that puts a field around units to protect them... lots of options there for a psychic save or maybe +2 added to the warp charge value of the psychic power? Either way I think technology would be the better way for T'au to proceed. If n...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Agreed. Way too much 1 damage or variable damage for my liking. Those that do flat damage values over 1 are outrageously costed as weapons or the platform it comes on. Not just that as of chapter Approved our missile pod is exactly double the cost of an AM autocannon for a less reliable version of ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So the Fire Prism may be a good example of what we can expect. Overall they are very similar platforms. Same Toughness, only a difference of 1 wound. Fire Prisms have slightly longer move, but the weapon is shorter range as well. It has a single fire weapon with high Strength, high AP, and d6 Damag...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

My recommendations is the Y’vahra it can deal with a lemanruss or similar in one round asuming overcharge. If you feel luck the Flamer itself can (barring lucky rolls) take it out a lemanruss by itself, giving the ion weapon room to fire at something else. On top, it is very sturdy especial if you ...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

Also what regiment is he using? Because mordian can overwatch at full BS so be careful what you charge them with because a battle cannon will flatten a Commander if he can get 3 hits and because it's +1 to hit with the stratagem overcharged plasma can't overheat which is also deadly Mordians need a...

Re: Please Listen (specifically Mods)

Thank you QimRas for explaining, i am non US citizen and the information reaching here about net neutrality is vague (to say the least). I am more alarmed about the DNS filtering you mentioned, how exactly do they think this is going to work? It could easily lead to a fracturing of the internet, the...
