Re: new person drone question

Cheers! You seem to be a real fountain of knowledge, so it can be a bit of a risk advancing suits and drones up the board? You could loose yours saviour protocols Yes, but not very likely since the range on savior protocol is 3". It's easy to eliminate that risk by moving the drones first, lea...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

The Fireblade buffing attached Gun Drones is just another reason not to take SMS on Devilfish. And who says Gun Drones going in Transports is un-fluffy?? Remember this guy? https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ugc/28483714965391053/74AB1067A17BC1E1F35929370A1B4C9BDAEF920C/ Oh man, that takes me b...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Just don't build a list with nothing else than Drones. They are a supposed to support the Fire Caste, not to replace them. ;) that's exacly what I intend to do with my cadre fluff though, unless drones become much worse then fire warriors in codex, you know, save T'au lives, use suits and drones!

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Drones in a Devilfish shouldn't really bother you. Gun Drones are a proper fighting force like any other and even get dropped by some flyer without. Just don't build a list with nothing else than Drones. They are a supposed to support the Fire Caste, not to replace them. ;) I think that's the issue...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Unfortunately currently it would probably be better to just take another Devilfish filled with Drones instead of a couple Piranha. ^^ Mathhammer wise I agree, I just can't let myself use the fish of drones. It bothers me from a fluff perspective. I'm not enough of an expert to say that it should, b...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Embarked units are not on the table so they won't benefit from any auras, but the Attached Drones rule on the Devilfish (and other drone carrying vehicles) say that "the <vehicle> is considered equipped with the Drones' weapons". And it is a <Sept> unit, so yes the Fireblades aura would a...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

The two Devilfish Gun Drones aren't embarked. They are part of the Devilfish and the Devilfish counts their Pulse Carbines as his own until they detach. So yes the Fireblade buffs the Devilfishs Gun Drones as well. The Drones that are actually embarked don't get anything since they are not on the t...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

the drones get buffed if they are within 6", nothing really to discuss there... you can look at it both ways, the devilfish having 4 carbines, it's sept unit, it's within range, it gets 1+ shot per carbine on half range the drones having the carbines but being embarked, again sept unit within ...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

If this works then you could technically get the buff in any of our tidewalls. I'm curious to hear what other people think because I say it does work but that may or may not be correct. I don't think so, units embarked in a transport can't be buffed AFAIK, it's the fact that the devil fish " i...

Firebade volley rule double check

I searched for it, but couldn't find an answer, so forgive me if I missed it. I've been running 2 'fish with a Fireblade as one of the support elements ( full details in a prior post if interested) and I realized something in my last game that I want to make sure I'm doing legally. The volley fire r...

Re: XV109 Y'vahra (any feedback?)

That's sinking a lot of points in protection on a unit that already costs a bunch. Not sold on the Y'vahra. Not if you were planning to field those elements in your list anyway. Using a Crisis unit with Drones is not really going far out of your way for protection. ^^ I agree but you're taking anot...

Re: Have you been Overcharging your CIBs correctly?

I use different colored dice, so I know which model fired what shots, but not by weapon for the reason I listed. But each weapon can cause only 1 wound. You can get three 1's on just one weapon and hits in the rest and get only 1 wound. Correct, that was earlier in the conversation before I realize...

Re: It's a new galaxy. What's next for Tau? Psychic? Thoughts?

I'd guess the Demiurg are the most likely to be fleshed out into an actual presence in the table top. Jervis Johnson said that they were written in as a replacement for the Squats and were /are intended to be developed into a playable race as soon as someone cares enough to get around to it.

I think I'm missing something, within the same categories it looks like the CIB without the ATS is causing more wounds? Vs toughness 4 it causes 7 wounds on average with both, I've got that but against a 2+ the top unit labeled "CIB+ATS+Drones" is causing 4,54 ( or4.54 if you're from the ...
