Re: The All-Flamer XV8: Tactics Discussion

Second game, Ynnari again, I set up my Crisis with the beacon all around a Serpent, ready to burn everything that comes out of it. I blow it up, it triggers a Soulburst, which I was fine with considering what was around, 10 basic Guardians shoot their Shuriken catapults at me, killing all 3. Okay. ...

Re: Weekly Discussion #2: Which Sept's lore interests you the most, and why?

Like SinisterSamurai I am interested in Mu'gulath Bay and Vas'Talos, because they are the latest gainings of the Empire and were planned as starting points for further expansion into Imperial space. So I have few questions according this "Septs". 1) After the Imperium of Man executed exter...

Re: Weekly Discussion #1: What happens to Gue'vesa once they join the Tau?

"Space Marine Battles: Damocles" would be a book worth to read. Gives quite good insight in Tau society. One of the four shortstories is only dealing with a Gue´vesa La'rua and Nagi. In the book Gue'vesa are used as guards for a Water Caste Diplomat who is visiting imperial worlds. After ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Do you think with the upcoming Codex GW (or FW) will give us an opportunity to buy additional CIBs? Don´t want to cannibalize surplus weapoons to kitbash my own CIBs when perhaps they are needed later again and at the end the products are not looking good as well. :roll: I am not speaking about GW p...

Re: Custom stim injector (support system)

Really nice work.

I would mount it in an horizontal way perhaps on the back.
Military is always trying to keep as small as possible. ;)

But the injector itself looks really good.

Re: Aerial Cadre - 1500pts

At the Moment I am reading "Space Marine Battles: Damocles". According to the story in the book you could use XV8 and XV22 (Shadowsun) in your aerial cadre. XV22 is obvious able to fly (not only to jump) because Shadowsun is following a Space Marine Thunderhawk landing on it - while it is ...

Re: Tau neighbourhood/ our next targets

Thanks for your response. :) From that galaxy image, the path of least resistance seems to be to the galactic north-east. There's that empty bubble of space that isn't Necropn territory or warp tear. That empty bubble should be easy to take. We should already know if there are strong enemy forces an...

Tau neighbourhood/ our next targets

Greetings to all fighters for the Greater Good. I was looking for maps to be able to speculate about the next logical step and direction for Tau expansion and to make my own thoughts about possible new stuff coming with the new codex. Sadly I only found the galaxy map where the Tau Empire is just a ...

Re: The Tau Triumvirate

If we got a character like O'Kais, he'd need to come at a really steep discount, or I don't think people would take him. It'd be like the Coldstar, or Shadowsun, or Farsight; a Tau Commander with a small number of weapons, or varied weapons, just isn't worth it (from a damage standpoint). If Marneu...

Re: The Tau Triumvirate

I noticed that the majority don´t want to change the usual pattern of the wise Ethereal, the Commander in a suit and so on. So am I the only one who would welcome a new style of characters with inverted roles? Perhaps a wise Kroot, a young Ethereal who feels well fighting in the gunline and a suprem...

Re: The Tau Triumvirate

For the triumvirate I would expect something different. Still following the mentioned pattern of fighter, Support and tactical specialist. Fighter: I would be glad to see the Ethereal as melee monster. Of course then he would not be the new, highest Aun but perhaps one of his students, one with a ne...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Thanks! Here's the cheesy truth though: the most important personal trainer is... you! Take one of the lists we've talked about here, try it out on the tabletop, and learn how it works! You might find synergies, quirks, or weaknesses that we or I have overlooked! Yes, I know that nothing can beat p...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Honestly that's a tough question- it comes down to this: Do you want a unit that's mathematically powerful but whose role isn't needed in the list (like a Fusion Commander) or a unit that's mathematically only mid-tier but whose role could be viable (like a Ghostkeel)? Sounds like you are trending ...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

Don't worry, I wasn't calling you out or anything! :D Commander spam can be fun to play! Just don't feel pressured to play a super-competitive list if you don't like to do that. Don´t has to be super-competitive but being able to win of course makes more fun :D To me, "tailoring" is chang...

Re: Green player building a list for 1750 pt event

So you're okay with Commander spam? If you enjoy playing it, that's the most important fun! (And, of course, if you enjoy playing it and it's really competitive, even better!) :biggrin: You are right! Saying the one thing doing the other - not very consistent. :D I would like to have a list without...
