Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

I have not tried the tanks out. I have only acquire d a single longstrike, and that works for me for now :).

Also,I did notice the skyray is one of the few units that can potentially get 5 markerlights, solo (with markerlights).

Re: 2000pts Tournament Prep

I only like the marker drone team on the crisis suits because they help you capitalize on your large range for your mortal wound missiles and protects the mortal wound spam from being wiped out prematurely

Re: 2000pts Tournament Prep

I like stim injectors on the storm surge but in my 2k list I am trying them out as velocity trackers. This is to help against hard to hit enemies like altioc eldar. Consider giving the crisis team a drone c ontroller and 6 marker drones. With the markerlight stratagem you should average 5.333 marker...

Re: Draaens Tau Cadre WIP

That's pretty cool. I love the creativity. I have a similar magnet project. I am magentising my stormsurges to have anchors up/down mode. I basically replace a plastic ball joint of the anchor with a generic metal bead. I found the bead and tested it before I bought it in the Walmart store. The idea...

Re: Transporting bigger suits

I am using ramen boxes with plastic bags as padding foreach of my stormsurges(two). Well one box has medium sized bubble bubblewrap sheet folded in half in half. I store my magentised big cannons in between the bubblewrap fold. It works for me for now until I get a case during tax time. So I will be...

Re: Lostroninsoul's 2k Cadre

By the way, what targets did the Plasma Rifle XV8s engage, and how did you use them? Risky deep strike at 12" range or more skirmish tactics? They are best used as skirmish tactics. Mostly 8 shots. The game I intentionally 'threw away' with poor deployments, they last two turns (generally othe...

Re: Ranged Superiority: How much would you be willing to pay?

I just recently changed my list to be more Range Superior and I like it a lot. I dealt 17 (19 mortal wounds if you count Longstrike getting a 6 on a wound roll) wounds to a Stompa today and removed it on turn one. Resulting into table in the player by Turn 4

Re: Farsight list- highly aggressive

If your going to run farsight, consider taking a homing beacon with the stealth team. It will make charging easier[or just drop directly into CC without charging, if avoiding flamers on vehicles ]

P.s. crisis suits can carry 3 weapons, are yours intentionally under equipped?

Re: Farsight: Shadow of the Manta

I been honestly considering the stats of the commander farsight model with the homing beacon in my list. I find it ironic you are using homing beacon, have your screen name, and not including farsight in your list. Against your MEQ problems , if you homing beacon him in, he does about .92 unsaved wo...

Re: Revisiting CIB Builds (Again!)

As a general CIB related question...anyone else not getting a ton of mileage out of their CIBs? Don't get me wrong, they are the best gun we have for a BS 4+ unit, but I just find myself rolling a TON of dice only to get 1 or 2 wounds per volley against MEQ. They remove cheap T3 GEQ in droves, but ...
