Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

I agree but you're taking another units protection tool away from THEM is part of my problem. Lots of points for an expensive model when you could take better units for the role. It's all moot anyway until the Chapter approved come sout and then once we get a codex it all REALLY goes out the window...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

So, I acquired a Y'Vahra over a month ago and had my first chance to try it out this week. I was playing PL so I didn't bring the drone protection that it would normally need to fulfill it's full potential. However, I wanted to be able to reach out and touch things with it first turn. The Y'Vahra ha...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I have a strong feeling that Tau will be one of the last codex's to be released, despite my best wishes. This is effectively for two reasons... 1.) They seem to be focusing on progressing the story. This means that the armies that play into this to a greater degree will be receiving more attention i...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

I am going to be honest, I haven't justified the expenditure of points on Kroot in 8th. Firewarriors are just able to accomplish so much as a multifaceted troop selections. With that said however, the number one reason I would want to field kroot however is as a Psychic Phase buffer. Because so many...

Stormsurge FAQ Inquiry

I have been reviewing the rules for Tau throughout the Index and Forgeworld models and have come to a conclusion. The Stormsurge may have been incorrectly designated as a vehicle, but not also as a Battlesuit. Initially I didn't question it, the Stormsurge has physical modeling aspects which could b...

Re: Tau Ghostkeel....is it a viable option>?

I've played the Ghostkeel in several games so far and have been pleased with it's performance. In my early games I had used 2 - 6x XV25 Stealth Suit teams with shield drones to help protect it by deploying them together. This worked well, as the Ghostkeel was the largest model on the table (no Vehic...

Overcharging + Modifiers

So, I was considering modifiers in addition to overcharging. One of the major strengths of a -1 to hit modifier is it impacting the likelyhood your enemy will nuke themselves if they overcharge their Plasma/Ion. Does this work the other way? I know it says in the BRB that any to hit roll of a 1 is s...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

Commanders are definitely a cost-effect option. But given how expensive the other anti-tank options are I think it needs to be moderately costed such as it is. Why not take them? First - a Quad-Fusion Commander is 160 points. That's the cost of 20 firewarriors. That's 20 wounds, 20 shots at 30"...

Re: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

Well I don't see anyone else discussing this in detail, so I wanted to explore it further. Discuss ideas and explore strategy in order to have synergy between units. This is how I have grown as a Tau player since 5th edition (Until my 5000 pt army was stolen during 7th ed) and is what I am intereste...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 2)

I would like to see the Skyray Missle Defense system gain a vector tracker. The vehicle is specifically designed for anti-air so it would be nice if it could actually do that effectively. I don't think it will make people actually play this unit more often. But it would bring it in line with where i...

Ions and Re-Roll 1's

So, I've been looking over the current Tau options and reading through the forums to see people's feedback to get an idea for the best way to optimize firing output and uncover the synergy within the army. The number one thing that jumped out to me was the redundancy of re-rolling 1's. The Ethereal ...
