Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

One thing I'm looking forward to that it seems to be prevalent in the new Codexes is relic weapons apart from the onager gauntlet we have never really had anything like that. I can't see an abundance of melee weapons or even ranged relic weapons due to our considerable choice of weapons already, but...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Does anyone rate burst cannons at all for crisis suits?
A squad of 3x3 will do 7.8 wounds to GEQ vs 7.4 for CIB and is 72 points cheaper which coincidentally would be another suit so for same points you get 10.5 wounds vs 7.4 and an extra body.

Re: 50% Obscured and Cover

Yup Panzer is 100% correct which I think every agrees is daft as nails but models only get a cover save if both 100% in a terrain feature and are either infantry or every model is 50% obscured. So if the arse end of your tank is 1/2" outside that forest you don't get a save even if 50% obscured.

Re: 1500pts vs AdMech

Ah, how things have changed! That would have been a fun list in earlier editions. Though, maybe the issue is this- Codex-equiped factions like AdMech and Space Marines have the liberty of taking less-than-competitive units and buffing them up with synergy and strategems, while we Tau don't get that...

Re: 1500pts vs AdMech

Yeah, this is true, sadly. These days, the following units (that were competitive in older editions) simply aren't viable: - Mixed-loadout Battlesuits Check - Missile Pod XV8s Check - Plasma Rifle XV8s Check - Riptides never had one if these atleast :) - Broadsides Check So, if you're looking to re...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Farsight will probably get what Imperial Guard - Valhalla got. Reduced morale losses of some kind, and doubling up for damage results on battlesuits profiles for the purposes of degradation. This reinforces the idea that Farsight units like to get up close and personal. They are expected to take mo...

Re: 1500pts vs AdMech

Index vs Codex is real. Now, T'au is competitive. With the right units. I am constantly trying to make list without using commanders, but they are better in every way than pretty much everything. (Haven't ran hammerheads yet this edition). Commander with 3 missile and ats, better than HYMP broadsid...

Re: 1500pts vs AdMech

I like it, I just wish I hadn't already played and been tabled, the first thing I thought was ghostkeel needed fusion as it was last to die. Also stim injector did nothing between 3 models and 22 wounds it didn't save 1! Also I don't have many drones 6 I think? I bought my army 2nd hand in 5th ed :D...

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

One of my problems with mixing three different weapons on a suit is not just the range problems but rather that if the unit gets damaged and you're like down to one suit you'll have three different weapons who all do very little instead of having a suit with three weapons left who put a dent in tha...

So a mate of mine is coming around tomorrow bringing his Admech I don't know the list I have never played vs AdMech before here is the list, due to the way my models were assembled for previous editions only the support systems on the suits can be changed.

Just love it, all of it, because for all the reasons I've said, I feel like I belong, and am genuinely excited about the characters, the models, and the game for than I have before. Viva la Warhammer! This. So much this that feeling of excitement is what has kept me and many of my friends into warh...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

I've been playing for 10 years and whilst this edition does feel to have heavily nerfed crisis suits and Made broadsides unusable. However this is much better than 7th ed far more streamlined and trying to keep track of all the formation special rules. Also as someone who was introduced to this univ...

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

Don't get too hung up on the weapon choices, mine are just examples to illustrate the idea, and I use flamets because I play mine super aggressively and would never not use redundant homing beacons to guarantee first turn alpha placement. But you could as easily use plasma rifles or missile pods if...

Re: An interesting synergy in new AM codex

The more codices arrive the more it makes me sad. So many pretty rules I'd wish T'au would get and then I realize we wont get it because someone else already has it. I also may declare it would be too strong. There's a difference between some Guards rerolling their misses or a bunch of firewarriors...

An interesting synergy in new AM codex

So got the new AM codex and noticed something about the cadian regimental doctrine. Models that do not move in the shooting phase can reroll 1's to hit in the shooting phase models who are issued the take aim order reroll all failed hits instead Not wishlisting specifically but if they implement som...

With 2 Markerlights: 75% chance on a Hammerhead after moving without Longstrike in range. 88% chance on a Hammerh...
