Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I don't think saying "our units will be good with markerlights" is a valid point in discussion about balance, quite the contrary Markerlighs are supposed to be a buff, not a required tax If our army is going to be "good with markers" guess what happens, everyone will learn to rem...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Maybe you are missing the possibility that GW just doesn’t care about balance and fluff and just wants to sell miniatures? The most profitable buff they could do to us would be making everything dirt cheap without caring about redundancy or balance, internal or otherwise. Which seems to be what the...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Another thing to keep in mind for the comparison is that the Hammerhead has flying, and thus it can more easily escape melee(should it survive) and can even sit on top of buildings to hide from nasty melee monsters :D If your hammerhead is getting into melee, you are doing something wrong. I also n...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'll reply to both of you here. The Hammerhead and Predator do not have the same role. GW's marketing might say that, but they also say that Sniper Drones have Rail Rifles. Don't listen to them. The Hammerhead is an infantry support tank that balances its weapon loadout between anti-infantry and an...

Re: Returning Tau player with some hobby questions!

To me, cylinder down unless mounted on shoulders/jetpacks obviously Definitely the best way to do it! Note that GW has also something bizarre and shown Fusion Blasters mounted sideways on the arms, which is just ridiculous- don't do that! :D Yes, that looks just awful Also if you properly magnetize...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Also, points drops rather then units getting stronger, screw GW, I don't want to pay double $ for the same points as marines, but since the codex is going to be a disappointment to me anyway and after the CA hype-up lies from GW, I am already looking elsewhere to get my models, still it's going to ...

Re: Anvil Industry conversion parts - anyone used them?

The regular Warden Head measures approx 5mm x 5mm and is 7mm deep. The Command variant is slightly wider (7mm). Both heads have a ball joint with a diameter of approx 5mm. For comparison, old crisis heads are roughly 10mm 8mm(plus antennas) 10mm(with joint)/5mm(without joint) So my opinion is they ...

Thanks, it took about half a bottle of cleaner and some hand cleaning paste as abrasive, really don't wish that frustration of the paint not coming off to anyone :)

Re: Y'vahra head (lost) replacement?

Glad to hear they did, once it is done, don't forget to post project log, or join motivation service post so we can see the goodness, also it helps getting your models done once you start getting lazy/procrastinate about it :)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

They copied all the stats from 7e and nerfed the points because people were complaining. Just like everything else in our codex :P This is a thing I fear in codex, when the game changed for 8th edition, we didn't, probly gw though "we'll do it in codex", now I fear they don't, and just tw...

Re: Secondary armies - Can we learn from them?

Knowing the game from enemy viewpoint is definitely going to help you with your primary army, if you are picking your secondary army based on what can they teach you, I would go for chaos, theay have it all, hordes of cultists, elite terminators, melee berzerkers, sorcerers etc. But in my opinion ch...

Re: Starting an Army

Welcome to the community!
