Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

If the rumours are true it's actually re-roll failed to hit. On a commander that might seem redundant but I guess you sometimes end up shooting at something with -to hit in which case it would actually help :) No it wouldn't help because re-rolls happen before modifiers. If a commander with this wa...

Our warlord gets to reroll 1s. Im pretty stoked. Feel free to erase this comment :) If the rumours are true it's actually re-roll failed to hit.

Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

Also, the Ynnari race got nerfed 2 days ago with the restrictions of the Soulburst actions... I think it was a bit too much power. Yes they changed it, in matched play only one soulburst action (per kind) can be activated during the controlling player's turn and no soulburst action during the oppon...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

I don't see the slightest reason why it should have to be rewritten. It's already plenty powerful. Especially with Drones. Yes, that's another thing i don't like and hope will change with the codex, gun drones are better than any of our "foot soldiers". To be blunt i want the cadre firebl...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Why? It's clear what it does RAW. Your suggestion would be way different for Rapid fire weapons. Yes i know, that why i wrote re-written, i think that the volley fire ability should change and be more powerful. I don't see the slightest reason why it should have to be rewritten. It's already plenty...

Re: Dark strider and breachers

Darkstrider is very good, i would prefer it if the tactical analyzer became a 6" aura with a price increase, that way it could make our strike teams and the special weapons pathfinders more powerful.

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

If you want to add a little grimdark you could say that they can only be piloted by teenagers because for some unknown reason [...] If you go with the above it would explain the crappy WS, the average BS and the size of the cockpit :biggrin: . Haha... true! And it would make my Suits a the stereoty...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

I think that the volley fire ability should be re-written so that it clearly states pistol 2 for pulse pistols, rapid fire 2 for pulse rifles, assault 3 for pulse carbines and while we are at that maybe include pulse blasters and kroot rifles in the ability. Why? It's clear what it does RAW. Your s...

Re: Alaitoc Counters

I recently played (with a guard list) against an Alaitoc army, i lost big time, ok the hammer and anvil deployment didn't help, nor did the terrain but the main thing was that i understood too late that i should be trying my best to close the distance. What i took from the match is that the rangers ...

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

I haven't the original stealthsuits, the current ones seem (to me) that the pilot can only be placed in the "torso" section of the XV25 as the joints of the legs seem to be able to make movements not possible by a tau (not that i know THAT much about Tau physiology). The issue isn't life b...

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

Well, to nitpick back: Have Tau crisis-suits ever been big enough to "reasonably" accomodate a tau (fire-cast) pilot? [Edit: I totally know what you mean. But since the GW crisis-suit models do not care about that, I will not care to much about that either. But I might add a back-story ex...

Nitpick but are the models big enough to "reasonably" accomodate a human pilot?

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

Then you have to come with rules on your own because from what i know the horus heresy models aren't updated to 8th.

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

What exactly do you want to represent with the Thallax Cohorts?
Do you want to use them as battlesuits built and piloted by humans or as a re-discovered/re-invented technology or something else?

Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

I'm actually trying them for the first time this weekend in a tournament. Because it's an Eternal War tourney, yuk, and I already got cheated of a victory by these, I'm playing 2x6 Stealths to make sure I'll get the relic this time. So I took the opportunity to bring 2 beacons and 3 Flamer Crisis ^...

Re: Tau Supremacy

In what world does the ta'unar gets the battlesuit keyword but the stormsurge doesn't?

It's hilarious when i think of gun drones and shield drones taking the various titanic volcano cannon shots to the face in order to save the KX139.
