Re: Rumor Engine Picture Analysis: It's Tau?

So something else with that chainsaw? How salty will people get if they announce a knight and then rumour another :D maybe a variant? like our customisble XV8s. Can you see where im coming from with my description? Kind of. The 'handle' on the armiger looks more like pipes (you can kind of see wher...

Re: Mont'ka and Kauyon Special rules. How to use?

In general though, you've got the general idea right. I see Mont'ka used quite often in the first turn (quite often by a coldstar commander that will then move 40'' up the board). Basically, if you need to move fast (by advancing) or you want to move your heavy weapons without penalty, call Mont'ka....

Re: Mont'ka and Kauyon Special rules. How to use?

Mont'ka - assault and fire everything you have (RF+H incl). Useful for a first turn manta strike? One quick thing, Mont'ka wont effect anything that comes down using manta strike on the same turn as Mont'ka has to be called before deep striking. You also can't call Mont'ka from a commander that has...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

While other armies have baselines better than ours get constant, guaranteed buffs that we get *once per game if we stay still* or get guaranteed orders, or have searchlights that give guaranteed +1 bs buffs, and meanwhile we've get 15 different ways to situationally reroll 1s, it's a little insulti...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I wouldn't be surprised is something got announced this Sunday. If they did announce Tau then it would mean the codex would be released on 11th March (they announce 1 week before pre-order and pre-order is 1 week). This would put quite a bit of time between any other 40k release You don't think the...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

I really hope they don't 'fix' our issues with stratagems. I don't like stratagems in general (I think they lead to too many 'Gotcha!' moments because I can't memorise 10+ stratagems for each codex). I'd rather have the guns be good than have to spend some obscure resource (albeit with a points drop...

Re: Hammerheads, Broadsides, and Tau Design Features, oh my!

I think that if the only thing that railguns get is a points decrease, they're not going to be that great, especially with other weapons getting better. If, on the other hand, hammerheads get some other utility (either new rules or strategems) that increase their performance then they could be good....

Re: 9", Buildings, and charge distances.

I would add that although the vertical movement may not be taken into consideration for the charge move they would still need to end their move within 1'' of an enemy unit

Re: Commander w/ Tenacious Survivor and Shield Drones

Although doing this risks that some damage goes onto the commander (e.g. all the drones die before the unit's shooting is over). If the commander is behind, you may lose all the drones quicker but the commander cannot be damaged (until the drones are all dead and a new unit fires) Yeah fair enough ...

Re: Commander w/ Tenacious Survivor and Shield Drones

An interesting thought though is that if you have gun drones you are better off in a lot of cases having the commander closer as if he is targeted it is a higher toughness value (assuming you would pass off mortal wounds) whilst this isn’t as big a deal as it was before it can lead to slightly less...
