Space wolves help

Hey there gang! I'm having a few issues against a friend who plays spacewolves, particularly with the squads of wulfen he runs. They start the game either using the 'on the hunt' stratagem (come from reserves from a table edge) or in either his land raider or stormwolf. Their ability to advance and ...

Ah. That would make sense :) Carry on then! :P

Re: Farsight: Shadow of the Manta

At 9 Drops, I normally get a +1 to the roll-off, but because so much of my force is in reserve, even going second isn't bad. assuming only the stealth component starts on the board, isn't it an illegal deployment? Or do you have a crisis Team that starts in your deployment zone? It might be worth d...

Re: Farsight list- highly aggressive

Hey Matt! Welcome to ATT and to tau :) Edit: definitely looking for feedback. Has anybody run a list like this? This is my first Tau list, so I might be biting off more than I can chew. Few things about the list off the bat; Farsight isn't really seen as a competitive option unfortunately- he only r...

Re: Tournament list help

By the way, with the remaining points it probably wouldn't hurt to fit a Drone Controller in this list- in your tournament, would it be okay to go to 2001 points? Or its it a hard limit? It is a hard limit, so the only points really to be made up would be putting stim injector on the Y'vahra? But I...

Re: Tournament list help

To make the points fit I did have to make the Stealthsuits cheaper, but I think it's worth it seeing the huge amount of anti-vehicle/monster firepower this list puts out. What do you think? Now that looks like a fun list to play! My only concern would be if 6 shield drones would be enough to help t...

Re: Tournament list help

Thanks for the help so far guys! Will tweak towards my play style with your advice when I get in and have a pen and paper. If you're planning on getting a Y'vahra, that would be excellent, otherwise, we can fill the remaining points with some additional Stealthsuits or another Commander I assume tha...

Re: Tournament list help

Based on what you have available I would consider adding another xv-8 team and a third commander. Not having enough weapons to attack heavy targets is a bummer. Depending on what you want to gear towards some combination of fusion, CIB, and flamers seems reasonable, and balanced out with maybe a st...

Re: Tournament list help

Just curious as to where you normally play your 40k as i'm not to far from Birmingham and struggle to find 40k clubs in the area. Just double checking Birmingham UK :P I mainly play with a couple of people at the GW shop, but there's a cafe next door that runs games every Thursday (I think it's cal...

Tournament list help

Hey all! I've registered for my first ever 40k tournament in Birmingham the second weekend of March, and I'm struggling to get a solid 2000pt list together with what I've got! I've made it up to around 1500, but filling the last points is proving a puzzle with what I've got. Anyway, here's the core:...

Re: a list for 1850pts for a total newbie...

Well. I have only one CIB in all these boxes... :( some other weapons? Like FB perhaps If you're playing casually, most players won't mind if they're not what-you-see-is-what-you-get. MSU means multiple small units- they're better for morale etc. Also this is the list Arka posted not me :P but this...

Re: a list for 1850pts for a total newbie...

It's because the Commander is an XV84, not an enforcer- it comes pre-equipped with a Target Lock and Networked Markerlight, and therefore can only have two other weapons (as opposed to the full four on the enforcer My bad, misread it! You have a lot of models, but very few HQs, so it would be a goo...

Re: a list for 1850pts for a total newbie...

Hey there! Hope you're enjoying tau so far! Couple of things I've seen with your list, the second commander had only 2 missile pods? Should probably have 3x missile pods and an ATS as well. The Missile Pod turrets are probably not worth taking on the strike teams either, with the new way to play gun...

Replacement stealth drones?

Hey gang! When packing up my army last week after a game, I've managed to lose both the MV5 stealth drones for my ghostkeel! Does anyone know of a cheap place to replace such parts? (There is 2 on eBay but they are around £18/$25 with international shipping) or an easy way of kit bashing or moulding...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

How I've dealt with lots of tanks is to drop QFCs, and CIB crisis suits 9 inches away, and then charge the car park. Any overmatch can be bounced onto accompanying drones, and assuming they're staying close enough to each other, pile in and engage multiple russes with one squad of suits. Means they ...
