Re: Flamers vs. Burst cannons

If you look at my spreadsheet for crisis loadout it shows average wounds against different save values and points per wound. You are paying almost double the cost of a wound on the burst cannons compared to flamers. The flamers however are pretty dependant on a stealth team with a homing beacon so t...

Re: Rethinking my whole army.

I'd say you want a Coldstar warlord, CIB and/or FB Commanders, stealth team with a homing beacon and a crisis suit team with flamers. The horde killing potential of the flamer crisis team is amazing and a commander's BS2+ goes to waste with flamers. I really like breacher's in devilfish as well. My ...

Re: Crisis and Stealth Suit Loadouts

Sorry everyone, I've been away over the weekend but i do plan to update these later this week. @akaron79 I will definitely add plasma, I don't even know how that slipped my mind lol. @Pottsey, good point about the ATS and its effectiveness in CC. I plan to write a more structured guide to go over th...

Re: Skyray- leave it on the shelf?

If you have the marker light support it can be good. Once you fore off all the missiles, use it to charge in and tie up units. Are you running any devil fish or hammerhead? I think if you want to run seeker missiles they are better spammed than only taken on one skyway.

Re: 2000pts Competitive Hammerheads

I wouldn't swap any weapons for an ATS on your commanders. Your efficiency goes down significantly for this both in average wounds done and points per wound. If you need the points you can downgrade a CIB to and ATS but I would only do that as a last resort. You seem to have a decent amount of anti-...

Re: Coldstar or 4 FB?

The correct answer is Cyclic Ion Blaster. But all jokes aside, magnetize them for sure. You can even just magnetize the jet pack pieces and glue the High Output Burst cannon and Missile pod onto the Coldstar jet packs and you choice of weapons on the other. I wouldn't run anything but 4 CIB, 4 Fusio...

Re: Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

I definitely agree with your point about ITC missions and would prefer to play them any chance I can. I would definitely tailor my list more towards those by taking drones with commanders. Some tournaments will be running straight rule book though so I think it's something to be mindful of and build...

Re: Crisis and Stealth Suit Loadouts

I think fusion commanders have their place but IMO the CIB commanders are the best all around units in Tau. They have better points per wound and Average wounds done than almost all other loadout on almost any target. The flamer can be better against conscripts and the Fusion blaster against high to...

Re: Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

I updated to make the Coldstar a complete separate entry and added the flamer for comparison with the Crisis Suits. Also made a post on Crisis and Stealth Suits similar to this one ( http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=26398 ). I still stand by the fact that 4x CIB is the best...

Re: Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

I updated it to include PPW for the weapons + chassis. It has separate columns for "# of weapons" and "# of weapons w/ ATS" to allow for easy Avg Wnd and PPW comparison between the two. The HOBC may end up being removed in favor of a separate Coldstar Entry. As it stands it seems...

Re: Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

Very good work you've done here! One thing I would like to see is a breakdown of points per wound as both a function of the total model cost and as a function of the single weapon to wound cost. For instance, we know a CIB is a better weapon than a BC (especially on a commander), but what is the po...

Commander Loadout Spreadsheet

I have created a spreadsheet with the typical commander weapons against some standard toughness/saves. I will be expanding this in the future as I know that I haven't covered everything. I have left out flamers because let's be honest, they should never be taken on a commander. All of the numbers ar...

New Member and Spreadsheet math

Hi There, I've been playing Tau since the beginning of 7th (when i started playing 40k). I've been lurking in the forums for a while but decided to join and participate in the discussions. I've made a couple spreadsheets for Commander and Crisis loadouts. I think my math is correct but it would be g...
