Re: 500pt list help

How do the new FAQs impact army building, especially the new Drone rules? (Not-so-disgusting but still resiliant)

Re: 500pt list help

It's the week 2 list subbing quad fusion commander for coldstar, and putting the 2pts onto the anti-flying tech for a stealth unit.

Re: 500pt list help

Is quad fusion good enough for me to ditch my Ion Rifles? I already took the fusion cannon off a stealth suit to afford the new commander.

Re: 500pt list help

Victory! All the advice about deployment and charging really paid off. I was up against the Skitarii Start Collecting box set and I went second and still won. Rolling markerlights one at a time was a game changer, as was marking multiple units. Coldstar's mobility was awesome, but she was kind of in...

Re: 500pt list help

How soft am I to flying units, or should I not even worry?

Good luck.


For real? You don't think the 2 Ion Rifles, Fusion Cannon and Missiles are enough at 500pts?

Re: 500pt list help

I don't have any melee people anyway, so this is sort of a thought exercise.

Speaking of, are there any Tau units that fight better than schoolchildren with rulers?

Re: 500pt list help

Gotcha. I keep forgetting you can shoot AND charge. This game is hard.

Re: 500pt list help

I should clarify - I'm confused about "sacrifice kroot to keep fire warriors" bit. Won't the fire warriors just stand around?

Edit: I know about fly+fallback=pew pew pew

Re: 500pt list help

But if my people are tying up a unit, doesn't that mean I can't shoot at it? I guess I don't understand how that's helpful with so many gun lines.

Re: 500pt list help

Is there a benefit to being behind a unit/does model facing matter? What constitutes tying up a unit?

Re: 500pt list help

I totally hadn't considered adding 3in to Rapid Fire. That seems awesome.

I mostly play against my friend's Orks, and they charge me like crazy. Like I can't even believe the distance they cover.

Re: 500pt list help

I guess I'm having trouble imaginging scenarios where the increased range or the lessend charge distance are relevant. Do they ever matter in-game?

Re: 500pt list help

That makes a lot of sense. The part about extra wounds and durability was definitely something I hadn't considered. I really appreciate your math and statistics too.

What does anti-elite mean? How do we feel about weird drones like Pulse Accel and Grav (or even Guardian and Marker for that matter)?

Re: 500pt list help

Cheese and crackers that is a lot to take in. You mentioned stealth suits so let's talk about them. My inclination is to put ATS on 2 Shas'ui with Burst Cannons, and put the big pew pew (and no equips) on the other one.
