Re: First 40k Army List Ever

admit, trying to squeeze a Recon Drone into each Devilfish is really going to limit your deployment options and make the initial setup probably needlessly annoying, since you need to deploy the various units one by one I need an explanation on this. I thought I was just gonna set up each Pathfinder...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

Do you have Pathfinders and Breachers paired up in two Devilfish, and the third Devilfish has 10 Fire Warriors, an Ethereal, and a Fireblade? Trying to make sure I know what's going on. Otherwise it looks solid though! If you have expensive and inaccurate units riding in Devilfish, you might want t...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

That's a solid list but seeing so many expensive, unprotected Rail Rifles is a bit worrying I think. And you probably don't need the Guardian Drones. The important thing, though, is that you have a lot of units that are very reliant on Markerlights, with two Hammerheads, eight Rail Rifles, and twel...

Re: Reinventing the Fish of Fury: Tau at 2000 points

I myself love the Devilfish, and am a history buff currently going through a Vietnam-era phase. I spent ages mulling this over, and came to the conclusion that Devilfish are much like Black Hawk helicopters (albeit with a chin-mounted turret): Not exorbitant but a bit of a costly way to insert 12 tr...

Re: Modified Fish of Fury Tactic?

Sorry for the necro posting, but now that our Codex is a few weeks away it's time to fire up ATT's servitors...anyways which way is it more effective to use devilish in 8th edition? The "Huey" Method--- multiple trips shuttling a large amount of troops, say2 Devilish in a 1500pt army 2x tr...

Re: Keeping Longstrike Alive

Maybe the best way is to forgo battlesuit guards completely and pick up more tanks, seeing as they get a buff from Longstrike as well? In my opinion, both the fluff and the Index seem to put T'au players into a choice of weapons platform: tanks or suits. Fluff kinda points that way, too. Usually T'a...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

Did some more boiling down of the list and I think I really like this one. Obviously if I were to take the list to a tournament I would swap out all my Fire Warriors for Gun Drones.

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

I love having lights hidden in Strike team squads. Great way to have some lights hiding around the army Hopefully other armies won't catch on to the fact that Markerlights are our bread and butter...anywho, I put 2 Markerlights on my larger 6-man squads of Fire Warriors, then used the 12 points for...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

About the Pathfinders though- the PAC Drones aren't going to do anything sadly. They're one-wound units that will die quickly and give up First Blood quickly, and offer no benefit to neither Rail Rifles nor Markerlights True, but after I deploy them, they act independently. I'm hoping to put them b...

Re: 2k points for casual gaming

For fluff, it seems like your list uses a lot experimental suits geared towards anti-infantry and infiltration. So maybe choosing Ion weapons could go along with the experimental theme of your army could solve both issues? If there's anything I'm missing let me know. Excited to see the final polishe...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

In my opinion, drop the second fireblade since they are both hiding in fish anyway and run both fish with strike teams 52 S5 D1 Shots at 15" is too good to pass up, the second Fireblade allows for two different deployed forces to keep flexibility and mobility. Im keeping the Fireblade. HQ - Co...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

Sticking with the theme of my Army, (Infantry, XV 25s, Hammerheads, Devilish, and limited suit use, if I were to take this up to 2000pts, would a 3rd Hammerhead of the same layout be viable? I forgot where I read it, but I read that with Longstrike's buff, the more Hammerheads the better. (The line ...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

With the previous list, the Strike teams/pathfinders would use the Devilfish to keep up with the Hammerheads as well as deploying units to areas on the table with strategic value.

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

I know gun drones are all the rage, but I really don't like the 18" range on most of our weapons. I want my army to have a layer of fire--Pathfinders mark targets, Hammerheads destroy them, and fire warriors to mop up some remains at 30" and closing. I read a post by someone on this websit...

First 40k Army List Ever

Just wanted some advice on my army- if I should change unit sizes, or specifically get rid of a unit in favor of another. I would rather not part with my Devilfish, Longstrike, or the Two Hammerheads. If I need more Pathfinders for Markerlghts, let me know. I have no issue swapping out the Fire Warr...

Shas'o P'ikle R'ik says "Peace Amongst Worlds"

Hey ATT, I used to be a member, but over time lost interest in the hobby.

Well I'm now jumping (orca striking?) back into 40k. I'll be posting a 1500pts army list over in the Cadre Building Forum.

Happy shooting!
