Re: Dealing with Deathguard

How have you guys dealt with Mortarion? A friend of mine recently added him to his 2000p list.

The dude is seriously tough and my list already has trouble dealing with hard targets. Since Morty has both an exellent inv save and disgustingly resilient I doubt even fusion commanders would do much.

Re: Riptide support systems (new player)

The best riptide support system in 8th edition is a shelf. RIPtide AKA Riptard AKA Garbage That being said....if you like the model and don’t care about winnng, Target lock and ATS... I have found that the best use for Riptides is to show my opponent their points cost. Doing so will usually result ...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

JSJ is a toxic mechanic at it's core. Firing and then hiding behind LOS blocking terrain or firing short ranged weapons and then retreating out of the enemys maximum charge range doesn't make for very fun games. I'd rather see that GW keeps going in the direction of the close quarters playstyle favo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

And weapons should not be compared without considering on what platform they are used. Remember on which platforms we have burst cannons: Commander, Stealth Suit, Crisis (Bodyguard), Ghostkeel, Recon Drone, Piranha, Devilfish, Razorshark, Skyray, Hammerhead and Stormsurge. Hard enough to balance th...

Hoping the codex will fix the seekers then the skyray might be useful...


Maybe they could make seeker missiles D3 dmg and Destroyer missiles 3 dmg? That wouldn't feel to broken I think.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The suits sure are some of the coolest models in the game, so I feel you there. Yeah. I really like the Stormsurge probably my favorite T'au model. But it's damage output is just laughably low for a 500p model. Might end up buying one anyway just to paint up and use in Apocalypse games though :D Ho...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Which army do you play again? :P T'au is a low model count elite army, space marine and eldar both commonly have more models than us. Just feels like we miss out on the elite part sometimes Strike teams, breachers, fireblades, ethereals, drones, kroot ,and kroothounds are all fairly cheap (not ork ...

Re: T'au vs Dark Angels - Tactical Suicide

Hello ATT! As for the units I used: [list] [*]Broadside was underwhelming, but the mission hurt him the most. That -1 to hit over 18" ruined him. Add the Darkshroud covering his armor and he was nearly 200 points down the drain. I still want to try him a couple more times to see how he perform...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I wonder if we will see something done about the T'aus vulnerability to psychic spam. I know T'au are not supposed to have psykers but gameplay wise it is annoying to constantly get screwed over by enemy psykers. Things like preventing overwatch or reducing our already weak balistic skill or morale ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My wishlist for the new codex: Weapons cost: Should be different depending on buyer. A Fusiongun on a Commander should be more expensive than one on a Crisis Suit or Piranha. after chapter Approved I think this is likely, maybe not for all weapons but fusion and possibly plasma or CIB Strategems: O...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

If you can pop both land raiders turn one before he even moves (And this is very very doable given he won't have much of a screen) you win turn one. This is a good point- there's just no way that an all-Custodes army could bring screening units. Fire away! However, those Land Raider have 5++, do do...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

Yeah I'm just brainstorming here. However, I think 8 BS2 Lascannons will do a lot less than you think. Statistically those two Land Raiders should shoot 8 shots, hit 6.67, wound on 4.44, and the Stormsurge should save 2.22 of those. So you're only looking at 2D6 damage, maybe 3D6 damage. Plus you c...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

What kills my troops is simply volume. If you put enough shots into them they will die. Dude thats simply not true. On average it takes roughly 400 Pulse Rifle shots to kill a 5 man Custodian Squad. It doesn't need to be different from what you already have. Hammerheads and Broadsides aren't all th...

Re: Dealing with Custodes?

Are there rules for custodes in 8th or are you playing 7th? Yeah there are. Rules for them are in Index Imperium 2. I admit I've never even met a Custodes player, but this seems like a tough list. I think the trick here will be to focus fire and make good trades. Focus the firepower of all of your ...

Dealing with Custodes?

Im having a bit of trouble playing vs Custodians with my T'au. The Dakka does almost nothing vs t5 2+ and the Fusion is struggling against 5++ and FnP Raiders. In my first game I tried to play around the Land Raiders, since I have no realistic way of taking them out, and go for an objective win, but...

Re: How to maximize my and my opponents enjoyment in each game

I try not to be too picky with rules. If another player makes a mistake due to being unfamiliar with or misinterpreting a rule I tend to point it out. Also whenever an opponent says "I forgot to move that unit before is it ok if I do it now?" I always respond with "That's totally cool...
