Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Our warlord gets to reroll 1s. Im pretty stoked. Feel free to erase this comment :) If the rumours are true it's actually re-roll failed to hit. On a commander that might seem redundant but I guess you sometimes end up shooting at something with -to hit in which case it would actually help :) No it...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Hahaha. People had hope. :P Tau Warlord Traits 1. re-roll failed to hit rolls if they have if they have not moved this turn If this included friendly sept units within 6 or even 3" I'd believe it, otherwise all our warlords with guns are BS2+ 2. the Warlord can advance and shoot as if it had n...

Re: Burst cannon vs gun drones

Now depending on rules interpretation, we do have a strategy to mitigate this that I expanded on in a different thread about what I call "pocket wounds" or wounds that you can take that don't degrade your army; however, some events and stores don't allow you to pass off successful wounds ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I hope our stratagem is combined fire esqe, something like the AM overlapping fields of fire.

But then again the orks got something to boost their shooting so we will probably get +1 to hit in CC :)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

From the latest post on Warhammer Community : "Come back tomorrow when we’ll be looking at one of the most exciting features in the book – expanded rules for 11 factions currently without a codex, including stratagems, warlord traits and relics…" Yuuuuuss Even if it's 1 or 2 of each even ...

Re: Pay for drones embarked?

It's quite simple really on the pages where all the points are. A. Write down the initial cost of the model/units B.write down any wargear / add ons (including drones etc) C. Add up all the points from the above. As you will notice apart from 1 all of our CC weapons are free, that's because we're no...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I am hoping they start doing posts over the next week with information about what will be in CA, the same way they have been for the various Codexis If it's available for pre order on Saturday then they'll probably start giving teasers from tomorrow like they have with the Codexes, either way we wi...

Re: Alaitoc Counters

I recently played (with a guard list) against an Alaitoc army, i lost big time, ok the hammer and anvil deployment didn't help, nor did the terrain but the main thing was that i understood too late that i should be trying my best to close the distance. What i took from the match is that the rangers...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

I think that the volley fire ability should be re-written so that it clearly states pistol 2 for pulse pistols, rapid fire 2 for pulse rifles, assault 3 for pulse carbines and while we are at that maybe include pulse blasters and kroot rifles in the ability. Yeah but that's really clunky compared t...

Re: What to do with a Pathfinder Team box?

I've never used the Rail or Ion rifles, and I'm not going to put too much love into their uses. They're going to be more of a fun thing for me until I see them serve me well :D As for the Recon Drone, I'm not too happy with its cost compared to what it gives and the unit it gives it to, and I'm fee...

Re: What to do with a Pathfinder Team box?

My next project actually is a Pathfinder box. I will indeed be magnetising them for interchangability, and because I have 6 old metal Pathfinders, I'll be able to make: 2 units of 8(5 plastic and 3 metal), one with 5 Markers and 3 Ion, and one with 5 Markers and 3 Rails. The drones, I'll definitely...

Re: Spin the Bottle

3x2 will be VERY small. Keep in mind your pathfinders will want to be at max range BUT if you have rail rifles, you may want to be within 15 for the sweet rapid fire. It may be best in that case to have both rails in one squad and that one be a "forward" pushing unit. Just food for though...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My guess is this is for more casual games. Tournament and things will probably not let you use the indexes if your army has a codex. Maybe. Well, the page calls out Match Play games at the top, so I would imagine it works for all game types. I haven't read the full commentary yet, so no idea if tha...

True but if you compare it to a ghostkeel or Riptide I might have to have a little cry :sad:

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

7p actually. Just checked. I'd honestly say a single Carnifex and 3 Stealth Suits are very comparable with an obvious edge for the Carnifex. Carnifex with - 24 18" S6 AP0 D1 weapons - at BS3+ (Enhanced Senses upgrade) - -1 to-hit against shooting (Spore Cyst upgrade) - WS4+ S6 T7 W8 A4 Sv3+ st...
