Re: 1k Casual Tanky List

Thanks for the comments, I'll try to test the lists in practice as soon as my Hammerheads arrive :)

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

Hm, am I missing something? Longstrike has the character rule so he cannot be focused down unless everything between him and the enemy has been wiped out.

1k Casual Tanky List

Following the great discussion and advice at http://advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=26645 I've decided to post my initial idea for a very tanky list for 1k pts: ++ Patrol Detachment (T'au Empire) [54 PL, 999pts] ++ + HQ + Commander [7 PL, 176pts]: 4x Fusion blaster, 2x MV4 Shield Dro...

Re: Hammerhead loadouts

Well, thank you all for pointing out all the ways I was wrong about Hammerheads :D But still - for SMS and Seeker Missiles to be worth it, you need enough markerlights to support this so that they don't hit on 6s. Arka0415 - I'm not negative, I'd love to get some and play them, but I'm still a new p...

Re: Hammerhead loadouts

But still if I stick to Fusion Commander for anti-tank, the Ion Cannons should probably be all right? Another question - Seeker Missiles, worth it or not? I just don't see spending 5 pts on 16% chance of inflicting a single mortal wound per battle (unless I simply have 5 spare pts). A single fire wa...

Hammerhead loadouts

I love the idea for adding 1 Longstrike and 2 Hammerheads to my army - the models are great and pack a lot of firepower. I basically have two questions: 1. Drones vs Burst Cannons - is the only advantage of Burst Cannons the fact that they can shoot at any target in range instead of the closest? Bot...

Do Support System have their own distinct bits?

Just wondering if I want to go full WYSIWYG, are there any particular bits for Drone Controller, Target Lock, etc.? The instruction is very sparse on details

Re: XV8 build instructions step 4?

I used step 4 in the instructions to make my Shas'vre. This way they're visually different from the other models.

Re: Preparing to buy my first army - 1k pts

Oh right, I'll probably begin my journey with this list: HQ - Commander w/ 4x Fusion Blasters; 2x Shield Drones (176) Troops - 9x Fire Warriors w/ 1x Markerlight (75) Troops - 9x Fire Warriors w/ 1x Markerlight (75) Elites - 3x XV8s w/ 8x Cyclic Ion Blasters, 1x Drone Controller; 6x Gun Drones (323)...

Re: Preparing to buy my first army - 1k pts

Question - is there any downside to including unit leaders (Shas'ui, Shas'vre)?

Re: Preparing to buy my first army - 1k pts

Thank you both for your answers, I'll review the list when I have more time :-) 1. Since drones become separate units, the opponent can easily complete objectives with destroying units. Are they worth it then? You're right- it's easy to kill small groups of Drones. That's why you should never take t...

Preparing to buy my first army - 1k pts

So this is my planned army. I'm going to buy 2 starter boxes, commander, pathfinders box and ghostkeel box. You can of course persuade me to modify my order :-) I've tried to read this forum first to get a general idea of how to make an army so hopefully the list isn't that bad. ++ Vanguard Detachme...
