Re: 1500 pt event list building

I think I can get behind that you made list very much. I will try to think of other alternatives still, just in case there's a better option. Unfortunately your list has a lot of very nice selling points(compliment). :-p. I can't believe I didn't notice the stormsurge didn't have the ATS. Great catc...

Re: 1500 pt event list building

I purchased a sniper drone team. I only wanted an elite unit that was cheap as chips; a firesight marksman. This will give me access to a vanguard dettachment that is easy to pull off. Current idea ++ Super-Heavy Auxiliary Detachment (T'au Empire) [22 PL, 493pts] ++ + Lord of War + KV128 Stormsurge ...

Re: Onmyou's motivation service

I slacked a little this weekend. I only finished duplicating a pulse blaster cannon (stormsurge)stock with green stuff. I slipped a magnet in to magnetize it without drilling. I put a small amount of paint on a black primed crisis suit . The paint job's a little shoddy but I plan to go back over the...

Re: 1500 pt event list building

I think the pulse driver cannon wants to be pair target lock. This would make the storm surge more mobile to adjust its shooting profile, especially if markerlights get wiped. This wouldn't do anything, as the Stormsurge already has the "Walking Battleship" special rule. Also, are you pos...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

I personally am not to worried about the codex update. What roles would your riptide fill that you currently don't have access too(is the role(s )worth filling or already filled good enough)? Second question: what units can do the roles better that you don't have(is there a option out there that can...

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

I think that this idea is OK. I think if you want to change the load outs to carry different weapons don't want to have them have the exact layout. Flamers are good and bad. It's good because the autohit is great with the BS +4 of the suit. It's bad because manta striking without a homing beacon wil...

I think the pulse driver cannon wants to be pair target lock. This would make the storm surge more mobile to adjust its shooting profile, especially if markerlights get wiped. I do like the idea of a screen. I'm tempted to run commander Shadowsun. Her evasion and drones could make her obnoxious. Col...

Re: how do you beat this with tau

Will mention that the changling imposes a -1 to hit penalty when targeting Tzeentch daemons within 9" of it I believe. Drones won't do so well against that. The kroot list has a lot of path finders. The ethereal can grant reroll. Making pathfinders lit up the deamons easier with ML . Once 5 li...

Re: 2000pts Mechanised - Much to Improve!

The opponent's guns are going to shoot at something regardless. If they're not focusing on Pathfinders and they're focusing on your other threats. That being said giving them more targets to choose from that are valuable makes it harder for them to play optimally because there are so many decisions....

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

Hm, am I missing something? Longstrike has the character rule so he cannot be focused down unless everything between him and the enemy has been wiped out. Longstrike is over the wound cap needed to invoke that character rule.The model is to big to blurry into the chaotic battlefield that shrouds sm...

Re: how do you beat this with tau

Giving up a commander weapon for a drone controller is probably worth it here. Add inspring warlord trait to ethereal to buff itself to LD 10 it can pass on to drones is also good

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

I think the better "take-all-comers" army for every situation would be the one with the Ghostkeel, right? Every day it´s getting harder not to order one :crafty: I get OCD about my "not haves" too. It's like an itch that won't go away until scratched. Luckily for me a ghostkneel...

Re: 1k Casual Tanky List

Here's some heresy for you,if possible you can replace a commander with a 3rd hammerhead and run a spearhead dettachment. It's a casual list so it makes the list more themed for a tanky feel. The ion pathfinders at that point maybe not as needed so regular path finders are considerable. Another idea...

Re: 2000pts Mechanised - Much to Improve!

I don't like the idea of Shield drones holding objectives in this list. You have 6 threats in your list: y'vraha, fish with breachers, fish with drones, crisis suits 2 commanders. I reccommend replacing some shield drones units with pathfinders. This gives you backfield support and can engage the en...
