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...

I feel ya, ran a similar list at 500 points, but pathfinders, hounds and a fireblade. It was hysterical against Necrons!

Re: Possibly a dumb idea. 25 power tanky madness

I'm far from an expert, but the largest problem I see is the fact you can only shoot at 2 units a turn. Yeah, they'll probably cease to exist that turn if they're small enough, but hordes will be a challenge. Especially if they split up and you have to chase them around the table. Even on a small ta...

Re: Custom tau females and "rambo" like guy

Holy cripes that's a heck of a face! I supposes I'd be looking like that myself if my 3+ armor suddenly vanished from my suit though.

Re: Themed list thanks to gifts, 2k points.

With the limitations and the theme, I think it's great! I'm going with the Marksman, partially for the synergy and partially because I have a kit bash for him I'm rather proud of lol!

Re: Themed list thanks to gifts, 2k points.

Either the missile pod, or a marksman for another reliable markerlight in the backfield ( man I miss rail riffles on sniper drones....)

Re: Themed list thanks to gifts, 2k points.

Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 8x Cyclic Ion Blasters, Drone Controller; 4x Gun Drones, 2x Marker Drones (327) If the main point for the xv8 drop is providing support drones for the XV109, wouldn't I be better off dropping shield drones with them? If I ran them as 2 CIB+ ATS I could save almost enough ( 19 po...

Re: Themed list thanks to gifts, 2k points.

Thanks to both of you for the advice! Going to address quick points, since a full quote to both would be a ridiculous wall of text! Gunrock: I agree with the smaller stealth team for moral and to spread out the effects, but with the new article posted on their durability I went larger just to ensure...

Re: Ukrainian battlesuits

I quite like the look of the CIB version, but as Draco suggested I'm looking at removing the front mounted head, plating in the gap, and mounting a head up top, which will give it a more vertical profile. The idea of using them as XV-9s is intriguing, but I'll have to look at the size; I already ha...

Re: Ukrainian battlesuits

Just eyeballing it they look like the Ghostkeel head could fit. Just cut off the forward protruding " head" and mount the helm on the top and that changes the profile significantly. I'd put on another pair of burst cannons and use it as a hazard.

Themed list thanks to gifts, 2k points.

Hello all, my wonderful little brother got me a ghostkeel and sunshark ( only fair, I bought him about 1000 points of necrons in return) but theses are units I'd never considered running at this time. So I took a shot at making a themed list around them. I say themed rather than fluffy, since I'm su...

Well, that's disappointing. They do watch though, so I guess that's fair. Bleh.

Re: Local escalation league

ehh.. maybe something I missed but why not using the stealths to grab the relic? Oh I absolutely am! Most of the people I play against forget they're infantry, if they do then they're a perfect second half counter carrier. Who ever carries the relic first is going to die, that's a given. If I get i...

Re: Local escalation league

Those force org restrictions are heinous. Really need a second wildcard at 1000 with how little you are allowed to take because of the restrictions. This is not a Tau friendly format as we can't use our troops for anything resembling competitive play. If the list could be started again from scratch...

Re: Local escalation league

If you plan on having them do that, make sure you split into two squads so you can retreat with one and screen with the other. Or go with Vespid as they are ultra fast infantry that can pick up the relic. Oh, hadn't considered vespids! Sadly I don't have another fast attack slot open, all I can add...

Re: Local escalation league

Then next week I can add a devilfish of breachers to get the relic ( they have to be on foot after and breachers can still shoot while the sprint away) with the stealth acting as surprise ball carries once they're toast after dropping flamers at the beacon. If you plan on having them do that, make ...

So it's 800 points, 1 HQ, 1-3 Troops, 0-1 Elites, 0-1 Fast Attack, 0-1 Heavy Support, and one wild card? We can work with that. I'm not sure what models you have in your collection, but I wouldn't bother with a Fireblade. Use Fire Warriors as a backfield unit and have the bulk of your army be battl...
