Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So conclusion is that if Railgun will be changed to Heavy 2 it will make more sense compered to Predator or Onager and to have it Heavy 3 will start to create real threat. But question is if we have seen anywhere that GW has increased number of shots (excluding twin weapons) ? Fire twice is somethi...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

For comparism LandRider with TwinLasCannons (339 points) against VEH: 65 pts / dmg to be honest I don't think we will see such Rail ever... :/ You can't compare it to a landraider though because they don't have the same battlefield role. A landraider is a heavy troops transport with anti tank weapo...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

This may sound crazy but have you thought about dropping 1 of the breachers and changing the flamers on Xv8 to missile pod? Missile pod is probably the best weapon vs storm shield custodes also if able add some railrifles to those pathfinders (make squad up to 8 to not lose your markerlight shots)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'd rather they rework the gun than dropping the point costs, but that probably what's gonna happen yes. My take on the rework would be this (Not taking into account the enventual double tap rule) : -Single shot - Heavy 1, S*, PA *, D6 + 3 Mortal Wounds. -Explosive shot - Heavy 10, S6, PA -1, 1 Spe...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Did you remember to factor in that the hammerhead is 10x cooler than any other tank? :D rather colder due to aerodynamic shape ;) but my point was that it would be hard to see point reduction. That weapon has to be redone and adjusted to 8th I love T'au but the Hammerhead is UGLY Also maybe a small...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

Unfortunatly I have seen armylists almost exclusivly employ this added with maybe a patrol detachment for some non character bodies on the table to take use of the character rule. HQ spam to make use of all the buffing power or individual powers while they cannot be targetted is borderline OP in so...

Re: Chapter Approved Leaks Discussion

What I missed in the CA book was a point to confine the HQ spam a little... I was really hoping on an extra rule for the Supreme Command Detachment. Something like that you can only employ this detachment if you have 3 of the following detachments in any combination already in your army (Patrol, Ba...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

Also what regiment is he using? Because mordian can overwatch at full BS so be careful what you charge them with because a battle cannon will flatten a Commander if he can get 3 hits and because it's +1 to hit with the stratagem overcharged plasma can't overheat which is also deadly

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

Does the new Marker stratagem change any considerations here? I find unit asking a whole unit of Crisis Suits boring, but efficient. I really like idea of a Crisis Team having separate load outs for maximum flexibility on a mission, but that's more a Kill Team thing than proper 40K. No matter how a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Rough math to keep it simple. 20pt gun 80 pts for commander 160 pts for crisis Crisis suits must be discounted 27 points off 1/3 the cost of the commander to be as effective as commander 15pt gun 60 pts for commander 120 pts for crisis Crisis suits must be discounted 20 points off 1/3 the cost of t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The fact that they are overcosted means they are weak for their point values. Tau have always had better and more expensive weapons. I think they should be buffed, rather than have their cost cut. But how would that work exactly? Take burst cannons again for Xpts to be worth it would have to be bet...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

To be honest, you guys are forgetting that we are awful at shooting right now. We only hit half our shots, and our tank killer weapons (railguns, fusion blasters and rail cannons) can't even kill a dreadnought with maximum damage on a shooting attack. I wouldn't complain if they gave our battlesuit...

Re: First time building, concerns with codex

So you can't buy a Coldstar? You buy a Commander then the bits to stick on him to make him a Coldstar? That's stupid. Forgive my ignorance I only buy models in store that is pants on head silly. Sorry I don't think you quite understand. The "Commander" boxed set contains a number of parts...

Re: First time building, concerns with codex

Hang on so if you buy a Coldstar, and don't attach those bits to it what is it's movement? If it's an option of 2 different things what does the other one do? If you don't attach those bits, then it'll look more like an Enforcer, not like a Coldstar. The big difference between the two models is the...

Re: First time building, concerns with codex

Do either of those affect his rules? Loads of models come with cosmetic options but they don't affect how the model plays. The Coldstar's big jetpack contains the advanced thrusters that allow it to move 20"-40". So I'd say it's a pretty important part of the model. This. Hang on so if yo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Not to be obtuse, but why is this critical in 8th? Most cover doesn't work unless you are Infantry, and being out of LOS may be beneficial to us, but doesn't exactly make for a fun game. From a purely tactical level, getting stuck in combat is a non-issue, and with both Manta Strike and primarily A...

Re: First time building, concerns with codex

Thanks for the suggestions! I only have 3 crisis suits built right now, a Coldstar Commander, and some firewarriors. I'll start magnetizing from here on out on the crisis suits and will wait to see in the new codex if I should tear the others apart to magnetize them. Luckily the coldstar commander ...
