Re: Multiple targeting and overcharge

Cool thanks for that but to the second part of my question can I split the overcharged shooting with standard or do all weapons have to be fired on the same profile?

Multiple targeting and overcharge

So in a scenario where I have a Commander with 4 CIB and available for shooting is an infantry squad and a Walker/ MC with 3 wounds left my natural thought is overcharge shoot at the big guy and fire 3 normal vs the infantry. Cam I do this? Also with weapon by weapon shooting could I fire at big guy...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

Personally in a world where elite armies can have the same shooting output as a horde, crisis need to have 3 weapon options to compensate for the 4+ BS, either that needs to change, the markerlight system needs to change or the as stated a selection of the support systems need a more expensive hard...

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

A big rework but one I think would work and get more use out of our systems would be limit the suits to 2 slots for crisis 3 for Commander, then 1 support slot and also bring back hardwired systems that can be taken in addition such as the drone controller and multi tracker.

Re: To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

I put an ATS on my Dual Burst HAZARD suits. I haven't done the math, but my experience tells me that my opponents really hate them. It's different with the hazards, Riptide, ghostkeels etc as the ATS is an add on it doesn't replace a weapon which is my main question, I have no doubt I would rather ...

Also if drones were fearless it may lead to outrider detachment drone spam :D

To ATS or not to ATS that is the question.

So I have been crunching some numbers and there is little to no difference in taking a 3rd weapon on a crisis suit vs an ATS. Obviously the ATS is better for points than most weapons but for BC / CIB / MP crisis do you tend to take 3 weapons or 2+ATS has anyone got any comparison of the 2 being play...

Re: Are commanders undercosted?

Ot wouldn't be much of a change basically just a few words really instead of when firing at a unit the tau unit "gains a benefit relevant to" the number of markerlight tokens on the target unit. Change that section to "may choose a number of benefits equal to" Male Markerlights f...

Re: Stormsurge vs hammerhead

In your list, a Stormsurge would be cool but it would need more models to guard it. The Hammerheads would be better than the Stormsurge with your army. Though, getting Longstrike, a Hammerhead, and some Stealthsuits would be good too. Stealthsuits don't need Drones to be durable. Honestly, if you c...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Actually if you think of it if each UNIT could RR 1 hit amd wound in each phase not only would quad Fusion Commander be even better single markerlight drones would be pretty good just like Firesight marksman and fireblade. MSU would be the name of the game indeed. On the flip side I can't even begin...

But they would have to write a new list anyway as half the chapter tactics are either useless (we already have the ultramarine CT on battlesuit) or unkeeping with that tau playstyle (see black templars and white scars)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Septs will probably get the same treatment as marine chapters everyone in the Sept can do X or is affected by Y. Don't know what those will be but I would love a tau version of raven guard / alpha Legion Or the salamander chapter tactics might make crisis suits and broadsides more appealing but that...

Re: Stormsurge vs hammerhead

I would opt for a hammerhead with Longstrike, and then another hammerhead. The stormsurge is good, but point heavy, and I think it needs more marker support than what you have. I run mine with shield generator, ATS, and stim injector. Tough nut to crack. Sorry just to clarify the guys I play only p...

Re: Sniper Drones - Amusingly Misleading Description

When sniper drones first came out they had rail rifles.. And i do remember reading a Tau short story where sniper drones where piercing space marine armour with ease. Shame what has happened to them. Hope the codex gives them a buff An easy buff would be allowing infantry characters like Firesight ...

I have quite a basic army atm about 1000pts 2 commanders 12 fire warriors 10 kroot 5 Pathfinder 6 crisis suits. I have a devilfish and another 3 crisis suits and I'm looking for some punch I have about £100 to spend so I can either get 3 hammerhead or a Stormsurge. I get that the hammerheads are wor...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ow what I find interesting in today's Ad mech preview is the war Lord trait. It allows units to shoot their regular weapons in the assault phase while locked in combat. They have to target the unit they are locked with, but that sounds good for us if we get something like that. Especially breachers...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

For the painting side could you not paint whatever colour you like the look of and just say what Sept they are? I only ask because my tau are infamously known as the LGBT tau because each of my units is painted a different bright colour (my 2 commanders being purple for warlord and pink for seconda...
