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 ...
