Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

In my eyes the biggest issue with T'au is its hard to judge how much FLY is worth points wise is it 10% model cost? 30%? flat 10pts per model? Bullgryns are another comparable unit to crisis suits with same BS S T and W but better WS A and save (2+ with slab shield every time personally) Also fun f...

Re: Vior'la sept - Agrax vs Nuln Oil

According to the Vior'la sept markings, which are already in the box. I know they are ment to be used on white armour, but has anyone experience how they work on other colors? Do they stay red even on darker backgrounds or do you get some purple? Would like to use them on grey-blue cause I am reall...

Re: How to differentiate Drone units among them

If your flying bases are left transparent, you simply could put a tape on the base and use different colors of tapes or write numbers on the tape to differentiate the squads. If the bases aren´t transparent anymore, perhaps just let a couple of millimeter of the tape visible on one side of the base....

Re: Tau A.I. and engram nuerochips

Just want to mention that putting AI in stuff not always improves it!
There are a lot of examples where the crew can be hampered by AI cause it can not always adapt to new situations as fast as a sentient pilot.
No dought that AI is very valuable in assisting the pilot but completly replacing it?

Re: Tau A.I. and engram nuerochips

And linked to this... Why isn't Tau AI more advanced and why don't we see more of it? Even if we assume it was at not too advanced levels in 7th edition, you might expect to the technology have advanced a long way in the ~150 years since then. (In comparison, look at how far we've come in roughly 8...

Re: 5th Sphere Technology: Ghost in the Shell?

One problem I see there is that the ethereals are not able to "guide" the other castes anymore cause everybody has the same knowledge. I also could imagine that military and politicians get special devices which are safer than the public common ones. This could explain why our fire warrior...

Re: Tau Command/Rank Structure

Today you have platoon leaders commanding about 3 Groups/Squads of up to 10 or 12 soldiers. To do this they even in modern armies don´t need more than a map and radio link from them to their subordinated squad-leaders and one radio link to the superordinated command. So leading the infantry units wo...

Re: Tau Command/Rank Structure

Intelligence is a bit of a murky subject. To the best of my knowledge there's never really been any official word on which caste, if any, handles spying and intelligence gathering. Tauman has some ideas about the Water Caste handling some of it, which makes sense given that they're the caste that s...

Re: Budget airbrush & garage compressor setup advice

I use the normal GWs (not the air line) and I typically get good results from a 1:1:1. Water:Paint:Vajello thinner. Although white is typically tricker. Most colors that mixture should be fine. Thank you for your answer :D Following a much more stupid question: What do you use to clean the airbrush...

Re: 40k as Post-Apocalyptic Narrative - Are Tau the "Good Guys"?

There is no place for "good" factions in the 40k-universe, cause being strong in this universe is so much more important than being good. You could say that the Interex were good (humans living together with different races in peace and even after fighting this spiderlike aliens they banne...

Re: Budget airbrush & garage compressor setup advice

Is there a minimum of pressure you need and a minimum thickness of the needle for the paints of GW? Can you use the "Air" colors as they are or do you mix them and make them thinner? When mixing, with what? Somewhere I read that the GW-colors are quite thick and though have special require...

Re: Where would you put a Seeker Missile on an old Broadside?

Just as the title says. As the new codex is (maybe) around the corner I've been thinking about ways to revitalize my old Broadsides. I'm considering swapping their heads our for the new, smaller XV8 heads, but there's a bigger issue when it comes to "modernizing" these old models. Broadsi...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

It seems that the February White Dwarf utterly lacks anything tau related. Does that mean that we're looking at a March release? https://www.warhammer-community.com/2018/01/26/february-white-dwarf-preview/ Well, if we're the second codex of the 3 then I can see the dark elves/eldar taking up most o...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Would it make sense that crisis support systems buff the whole team, when firing on same target even though only one suit is outfitted with it? (without shield Generator and stim injector)

Or would you think that crisis then are overpowered? :fear:

Re: Mixing Tau with other Factions

Played together with Chaos (2x1000 points against 2x1000 points) against Grey Knights and Space Marines. First round I wounded barely anything but Chaos prevented the enemy to slaughter me in melee. I could pay back in the second shooting Phase. All in all it was a quite good combination. They slaug...
