Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Autohit or always hit on a 2,3,4: While always hitting on a 2+ sounds really nice it just isnt going to happen, there's no reason why aiming a ML is different from aiming a pulse weapon. I also believe it would just make things more confusing while this edition is all about simplification. Keep in ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Talk is reaching the wider community and even with just the barest hints the internet is begining to tear up at the thought of buffed Tau. For all we know this dex is bad and the buffs make no impact in the meta. Despite that the tears begin. Well I hope we are buff enough to at least justify the h...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Regarding Rail-rifles/Rail weaponry in general, I think Heavy D3 would fix a lot. Rail-rifles being Heavy D3 seems a lot more thematic. They're more akin to a high powered sniper rifle. Keeping them at S6 AP-4 D D3 but Heavy 3 and making them 15-17 points would work wonders. Then we have a gun that...

Re: Revisiting XV8 Naming Conventions

Does anyone bring 3 different weapons? For an xv8 we could simplify it to the weapon name that's taken twice is listed first with a new name for the most common support systems ( ATS is piercer, shield is guard and drone controller is guide maybe ) so you'd get a soul forge piercer as example has fu...

Re: Regimental standard about Damocles gulf

The most interesting thing to me is they're featured the Thousand Sons, Tyranids and Eldar within weeks of their codex dropping , but no mention there of the Dark Eldar or Necrons yet. Could we have jumped in line?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

It's far from a given thing, but have you seen the new Regimental Standard!? Don't want to get any ones hopes up too high, but they featured the Thousand Sons 2 weeks ago, the Tyranids right before they came out and Eldar the same :D

Gah, it has itn's own thread, nevermind.

For certain 5th, and I think 4th as well.

Re: Options against Heavy Infantry

Uuh... I really like the sound of that... I may need to buy a piranha or 2 :P I'm not gonna lie, that's what I do with my sniper drones now, mount them on the drone slots on the GW piranha and use it as a counts as! I'm not proud, but it does set them apart. Just waiting on the codex ( fingers cros...

Re: Options against Heavy Infantry

Rail Rifles are good, but I didn't include them in this list because any opponent who knows what they're doing can take them down pretty easily. If you invest in defensive measures, like Shield Drones, Transports, or Tidewalls, the whole benefit of their low cost drains away. I guess that's my issu...

Re: Sniper Drones' BS

I'd be willing to straight trade for the longshot pulse rifle they come with now for the pathfinders rail rifle. Yes that would make them pretty costly ( figure the base rifle costs maybe 5-6 points ?) but even with their limitations they'd be able to really reach out and do damage. That would put t...

Re: 750 point list - tactics and modifications

Are you committed to the broadside? It's a sizable chunk of your points and I've only found it a mediocre unit this edition. I'm fairly new to the game, have played maybe a half dozen games or so. From a flavor/fun perspective, I am kind of leaning towards him. My games so far have had a lot of fir...

Re: 750 point list - tactics and modifications

Good point. "Alpha strike" may not have been the best term, because the crisis battlesuits would need to survive an enemy turn to make full use of flamers. I suspect they can, maybe with a few more drones. If the QFC is making a big enough nuisance of himself, then yes they should be able...

Re: 750 point list - tactics and modifications

I'm far from an expert, and I expect Arka will be by in a minute to give much better advice ( he's helped out my lists on multiple occasions) but I will point out that if you're counting on a decisive alpha strike with the Crisis suits, you're only going to be able to use their fusions. Not that the...

Re: Stealing objectives: Breachers, Pathfinders or something else?

What is the purpose of the Fireblade in the fish? Breachers don't benefit from volley fire. If it's the marker light, consider Darkstrider, same BS and only 3 points more, but the breachers could use his structural analyzer. You do lose a bit of durability in the armor save, to be fair. If all you w...
