Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I thought Skyrays were BS 3+. I may have just confused them with Hammerheads. In any case, GW is looking to nerf smite anyway and has proposed the -1 per cast as a beta rule. Also, psykers have a chance of blowing up and smite can only target the nearest unit. Seekers would be able to focus fire on...

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

The 2 forgeworld commanders are kel'shan and dal'yth I reckon they're going to be septs in the codex also

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Make seeker missiles do regular damage, not mortal wounds. E.g. S9 AP -2 D6 damage. I personally don't mind not having mortal wounds to dish out, so long as we can just do lots of damage. I'll have to disagree with this. Having played against Custodes and Thunderwolf Cav heavy list before you'll wa...

Re: T'au septs from the new Codex maybe leaked?

I'm hoping that Farsight Enclaves is expanded into a separate army a la Genestealer Cults I doubt it, tempestus didn't get a separate codex just a different regiment trait, and like the tempestus FE don't have anything unique to justify it's own codex, Genestealer cult is massively different from t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Do you know what I would like to see? Change Multi-tracker to instead allow the reroll of 1 hit per turn and then give one to all battlesuits like they used to. Because let's be honest who uses Multi-tracker atm and it's not like we don't have enough RR 1's anyway. I also hope we get a return to har...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Images of another Warhammer 40,000 facebook comment indicate that GW feels the T'au statlines are good, and right where they ought to be, based on the fluff. The rest of the comment seems somewhat...explosive...so I'll avoid posting it directly, for now. But those who are expecting or anticipating ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I have looked at the first Adeptus Custodes codex review. Just curious, are their toughness come from their super-human ability or their armour? (They have same toughness as Commander Battle suit!) In 7th (or horrus herasy) The guard statline is 3 all around a marine has 4 all around and the custod...

Re: Mordians

Just remember when charging mordian hit on 5+ if base to base with another model! Doesn't sound like much but it's twice as many hits as expected

Re: Line of Sight Question

How about landing Longstrike on Landing gears. 3 hammerheads infront hovering, twist engines vertical so they are in tight formation. Then put infantry infront of the hammerheads to cover the gab under the hammerheads? Remember that, unless Longstrike is 100% invisible to the firing unit, he can be...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The timeline jumped of over a century. Named characters should be dead. Would make sense that farsight, longstrike, etc. become titles for the ace in it's field instead of the actual characters. GW did it with tyranids characters so isn't a new thing. I can see Longstrike and Darkstrider becoming t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

As you said PL puts us on equal footing not gives us a massive advantage but there are some units it's better for than others. Pathfinders being one for 3 PL we can take 5 Pathfinders with 3 rail rifles, normally almost 100 points and at 18" putting out 6 str6 Ap-4 D3 damage shots with a chance...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Speaking to Markerlights, is there a scenario where one level of ML support could remove the negative to hit modifiers of some enemy units (Eldar, Supersonic flyers, etc.)? Some rules allow their units to get up to -2 to hit, so maybe removing that whole buff is a bit too strong, but we could negat...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

You seriously have to look at each codex as their own thing, because overlapping them into soups doesn't work as you lose all of the benefits within the codex the moment you mix units in the same detachment. Having a Adeptus Custodes codex helps NO OTHER FACTION but the Adeptus Custodes. It's not a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Expect a mediocre codex and hope to be pleasantly surprised I'm not even expecting that. GW are clearly only interested in Imperium vs Chaos. As for the argument "the longer they take testing the codex, the more refined it will be", if some of the rumours I've seen are true then the codex...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Thing is the Tau are not the only xenos getting shafted hard. They all are by GW super hard right now. If it was just a few years between Tau releases but there were other xenos stuff sure. Except that isn't the case. There will simply be no more releases. We don't sell as well as a marine and we c...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Doubt that. If Necron and T’au aren’t the next codex after demon. Then, what is the logical reason for that they did’t get point update in chapter approved? Custodes didn't get a point update either you know... And also 4 units to choose from so... Also from what I can see there's only split weapon...
