Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I wouldn't be surprised is something got announced this Sunday. If they did announce Tau then it would mean the codex would be released on 11th March (they announce 1 week before pre-order and pre-order is 1 week). This would put quite a bit of time between any other 40k release You don't think the...

Re: Last days of the T'au Index: Experimental Lists

This is for myself and others strugglign with the multiple spoilers so close together! Overall I would say markerlight+shield drones are interesting, the only real reason to take MP on commanders at the moment is if you have an xv84 with two of them, and it might be interesting to see some weird hy...

Re: Last days of the T'au Index: Experimental Lists

I don't know if it's an issue with Chrome on Windows or what, but whenever I try to open the 2nd or 3rd list I don't see anything... and I'm really curious to see what they are. COuld you post them separately or have them unhidden maybe just in a longer post? Common problem Zano. Generally only hav...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think it's really unlikely that we'd see a Heavy 36 gun, and Heavy 18 D2 is strong enough on its own- my guess is that it's the Nova Charge profile. That's my thinking as well. 35 points is way too cheap for it to be the standard profile. An AM's autocannon costs 15p and is Heavy 2 S7 AP-1 D2 at ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I was thinking of the HBC stats once more: I haven´t played the Bursttide in 8th for a single time, although it is one of my favourite models. In the Index it has 8 S6 shots with AP-1 or 12 S6 shots AP-2 when Nova charged. So maybe...just maybe those 18 shots with S6 and AP-1 are the UNCHARGED vers...

Re: Tau Win Percentage Log

...Missile Crisis Experiment... ...30 Breachers... ...40 Shield Drones... Okay, you've gotten me curious! :D I'd love to hear more about this list- if you want, make a thread over in Cadre Building and explain how this totally unique lists works. I'm sure more than a few people would be interested!...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The upsides will come from massive point drops on base costs and weaponry, and massive buff to weapons characteristics. Sometimes both, which can make for some crazy stuff. Like a Heavy 18 S6 -1 2dmg gun for 35 points ;) . You said you were waiting for GW to announce stuff before divulging too much...

Last days of the T'au Index: Experimental Lists

Hi there! I am writing this post mostly because Arka asked me to post my last (and very odd) list (who can say no to him? :D) in the Tau Win Percentage Log ( http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?p=347738#p347738 ), but also because I thought I could do that, while explaining the reasons w...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I just hope that we get some official info on upcoming releases very soon, I'm starting to be quite impatient about it :D Oh boy, me too! Following my uncertain calculations, I guess we should start getting some news of the first of the next 3 Codexes this same Sunday (February 18th). The whole rea...

Re: Ideas for Sept Traits

I think Tash'var should get laser shotguns into Melee. They are supposed to be awesome with breachers, fought melee armies with them a lot (I can't remember if it was Orks or Nids, but it was one), so... Laser shotgun into Melee. Like, let the pulse blaster count as a pistol or something. I mean th...

Re: Something I missed on Shield drones

If you're referring to if the shield drone itself was shot at, yes the drone could take its armor save first followed by the FNP if it fails. This. I played wrong the whole time :-( Been there.... I realized that 2 months ago after 30+ games played... and I was never using Shield drones cause I tho...

Re: The Kroot need an Upgrade

I'd be okay if they kept hounds as the punchy kroot and carnivores as shooty kroot. And I'd be okay if they kept hounds where they were at (I like hounds, I'll bring them as cheap little lawn mower units). But Carnivores just... they need Something. I get the appeal, but their base unit is more exp...

Re: Sense of Stone and Shield Drones

In most cases, a FNP roll doesn't stack. I'm pretty sure Leviathan nids don't have their HFA stack with the Catalyst, and Orks don't get the benefit of both dok tools and cyborg bodies. You are putting valid examples, but those are cases where the same rule specifies that you cannot stack them: Cyb...

Re: How to differentiate Drone units among them

Wow! thank you for all the comments and ideas! There are some neat ideas if I only use 2-4 drone units that are really simple to do and great looking on the table top, but the issue now is that when I have this problem is on lists with 4-8 different drone units. Of course my playstyle will have to a...

How to differentiate Drone units among them

Hello there! I am a competitive T'au (and only T'au) player, who wants to get his army painted, but I have a really annoying issue regarding drone units: INTRODUCTION Drone units can be from 1 drone (although not strategically recommended from a competitive point of view) to 12 (or even more, if you...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Does anyone know if anything has been said on the order of the Xenos codices? I think we're all assuming Druhkari first, then us, then necrons? Is there any basis for this or am I missing something?
