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...

How to deal with turn 1 Assault units?

So I was wondering how more experienced T'au players deal with these ultra fast units that can reliably assault on turn 1. Things like Saint Celestine, Magnus, Harlequin Bikers etc. Since I tend to have a lot of units in my lists I rarely get the first turn.

Re: 2000p Semi-Competitive list

The Broadside stays for now, but I may end up replacing him with a Ghostkeel once I have one painted in the future. Thanks for the input guys, I feel like this list will be both better and more fun to play than my original list. Suddenly a Broadside and a Support Turret? Why the change? At least yo...
