Re: Converting XV9s to look more "Tau"

I've never been that keen on the XV8's design. The newer version is at least poseable but the suits look so gawky and goofy like the tow truck in the "Cars" films, IMO. I far prefer the XV9's which look like they want to shoot you rather than sing kum-by-yar and toast marshmallows round th...

Re: Ukrainian battlesuits

I'm told they are based in the Ukraine (ie; outside EU law) and money goes to the Cayman isles.

They are certainly ripping off GW Tau, but are great models IMO and better looking than standard XV8's.

Re: 2k Tau vs Imperial Guard

I've noticed the same time element too in the last several games I've played. Most recently using eldar, but the last couple of games with tau mostly got as far as turn 3. And this against different opponents....

Hard to see why.

Is it the shooting or taking time to decide which stratagems to use?

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

I started playing 40K in 4th Ed with Eldar. The Crystal Targetting Matrix on the falcon/prism tank allowed it to emerge from out of sight, take a shot, then disappear back out of sight again. Lots of fun if you are the one using it but plain annoying if on the receiving end. The rule was dropped and...

Re: Flamers in 8th Ed

There's nothing on (b) that I can see in the main rulebook or chapter approved.

Re: New Player - up against Astra Militarium

Jump in with as many fusion blasters you can muster and destroy those Russ's. You are right to respect them - depends on which mission you play though and whether there is plenty of blocking terrain to hide behind.

Chances are he will use his cadians to bubble wrap the tanks from harm...

Sky Ray's

Has anyone been using Sky Ray's at all? I'm up against a Ravensguard player this w/e who uses terminators and I'm thinking this might be a good time to try out my Sky Ray. The no-save mortal wounds effect of the missiles coupled with a Markerlight Uplink stratagem could be an effective ploy. Against...

Re: My Tau Gue'Vesa auxiliary force

Thanks all :P Like I said, I don't like my tanks clean, and I wanted this lot to look not-Imperium but not entirely clean Tau. For this effect it's all about multiple layers over a fairly light base colour. On this I made shapes with blu-tak over a skeleton bone base colour then spray-canned light g...
