Re: Dealing with Custodes?

If he creates a bubble 10" from the Landraider, that means his Landraider is at least 11" away from the edge of his deployment zone, meaning he lost and entire turn of movement before he can disembark the Custodes into enemy lines. Bubblewrap like this is usually useful for fairly static ...

Re: Tau bland in 8th?

The thing we gained which we never had was drones that matter. Really the self-sacrificing little frisbees are the glue that hold a Tau army together in 8th and I am still finding new ways in which that opens up fun things for us to do. Drones were always one of the distinctive features of Tau but ...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

Though nothing stopping them bringing a cheap patrol / Battalion of guardsmen to screen for them. Absolutely. In fact, that would be a very competitive strategy for the otherwise... limited Custodes roster. In this particular instance of the pure Custodes army it's not anything to worry about, but ...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

As far as everyone's "I wish crisis suits were BS3+", we won't be getting that. Period. Our most likely scenario for better crisis shooting will be something akin to the old retribution cadre formation where you get to pick several units and those units can deepstrike and gain +1 to hit t...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I'd like to see something like the old electro warfare suite as something that we can do in the psychic phase. Essentially using technology to hack enemy units and cause shenanigans rather than magical warp powers. Or I mean, they could always just give us the fluff friendly psychic-bear-in-a-bubbl...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

This is a good point- there's just no way that an all-Custodes army could bring screening units. Fire away! Hello. What are you talking about when you say "screening units"? A "screening unit" is a weak infantry unit that guards a larger, more powerful unit. If a squad of Kroot ...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

Is he not using screen units to protect from deepstrikers and even stealth suits? Every guard player I know uses tons of screening units. Also a few use bullgryn units to act as counter melee. Getting the charge on a tank or two could be a short term victory if a squad of bullgryn can charge in wit...

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

Yes, I think it's effective. This is why I revived this thread and provided the math hammer behind 8x FB, 1 DC, and 6 marker drones. Very point effencient on first phase they shoot in. For stealth suits if you're bringing a FB then drone controller would be worth it, not gunna be using target lock ...

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

But that's enough of that! Sorry to totally derail this thread. Getting back on topic, do people find that running a drone controller on the crisis suits effective? Would you rather drop a weapon hardpoint for one or use stealthsuits/coldstars? Yes, I think it's effective. This is why I revived thi...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Here's a fun question: What if railguns all had the sniper special ability? they already have I think he is talking about the ability to target special characters, not the mortal wounds. It would make pathfinders significantly better than firewarriors. Now if sniper drones were given rail rifles li...

Re: How to make Pulse Carbines viable for Fire Warriors

Or kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Make pulse carbine 1pt each effectively making gun drones 25% more expensive and give firewarriors an ability for underslung grenade maybe not photon but an ability like 6+ to hit for firewarriors with pulse carbines counts as 3 hits instead of 1. Makes pulse carbine wa...

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

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...
