Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

Good point :smile: , but i think that XV8 are "fat" enough to accomodate a tau sitting in a chair, i am more worried about the stealthsuit. There is no seat, battlesuits, as the name suggests, are suits, not robots (it's in the fluff, pilots limbs extend to suits limbs, though GW got the ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The thing with a free pistol for a shas'ui might be a test or a prototype for something. Pulse pistols at extra cost for every Firewarrior? well this might actually turn up to be in codex, after all the guide I got for my Fire warrior kit shows that you can glue pulse pistols to shas'la (just not t...

Re: Devil fish help please

just make sure your putty is "tough" enough to hold edges and such, I would suggest the brownstuff as it's an aluminium putty and is pretty good at that also when making mold, don't just use any silicon, some of that stuff has quite toxic fumes and take ages to harden, if you want to use s...

if you are worried about their survivability you can give them shield generator or two, and also put another suit in the squad

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

The Fireblade buffing attached Gun Drones is just another reason not to take SMS on Devilfish. And who says Gun Drones going in Transports is un-fluffy??

Re: Multipurpose Strike/Breacher Teams

using those as multipurpose should be just fine, as long as they fill single purpose over the entirety of battle, no switchnig to blasters when they get up close or so making a unit like this should spice up the army and make it more personalised, unique and well, good looking (cause you wanna look ...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Well it would be a pretty odd Cadre for T'au standards then. However having something like that isn't necessarily bad as long as one is aware that it's not in line with how things are usually done in the official fluff. ;) well the different septs have different views on both life and combat, we ha...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Just don't build a list with nothing else than Drones. They are a supposed to support the Fire Caste, not to replace them. ;) that's exacly what I intend to do with my cadre fluff though, unless drones become much worse then fire warriors in codex, you know, save T'au lives, use suits and drones!

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

Mathhammer wise I agree, I just can't let myself use the fish of drones. It bothers me from a fluff perspective. I'm not enough of an expert to say that it should, but it just rubs me the wrong way. Plus I have two piranha doing nothing at the moment :) well there's no reason why the drones should ...

Re: Devil fish help please

either get some damaged models with fitting pieces off of ebay or copy the pieces you have and need twice (engines) with bluestuff (oyumaru) mold and fill it with epoxy putty of your choice, you can also make extras to be able to turn your DF into HH or you can just take green and brown stuff and do...

Re: Firebade volley rule double check

the drones get buffed if they are within 6", nothing really to discuss there... you can look at it both ways, the devilfish having 4 carbines, it's sept unit, it's within range, it gets 1+ shot per carbine on half range the drones having the carbines but being embarked, again sept unit within r...

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

Would any Gue ever be considered for promotion? They're considered the lowest / human but would devoted submission to the Greater Good be honoured and praised. humans have same chance to get promoted as T'au, it only depends on how good they are in their job and how much they contribute to the grea...

Re: The Greater Evil

exciting, I love getting more T'au lore, but has anyone read it yet? I am considering getting the book but what mostly interests me is if there is sign of T'au possibly getting tainted by chaos (or worshipping it off their own will) which would support my plan to do fun Khorne T'au conversion (I thi...

Is 12 Stealths too much though? I wanted to make absolutely sure I get to Beacon combo the flamer Crisis. definitely, get 3 or 4 of them with one SG per unit, that should be just enough, didnt even notice they were full units till you pointed it out lol I love Breachers, and I don't have more Drone...
