Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Our issues aren't so much with our troops as with the heavy support. If broadsides were around 100pts each with weapons we would probably see more brigades. The main issue with our troops is the lack of special weapons and the support turrets are too expensive for what they do I agree on that 100%....

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I could see this being a stratagem, actually. The whole idea of Tau getting a huge host of flavorful abilities is so exciting, I have to say. That would be fine but remember that our army can not only relay on Stratagems as CP are very limited. For every other army Stratagems are cherry on the top ...

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Interestingly, I remember reading in the FAQ that the abilities stack. So if you have 2 ignore wound rules on a model you roll for each of them... it could get really OP You remember it correctly: Q: If a model has two rules that allow it to ignore wounds, such as the Disgustingly Resilient ability...

Re: Sense of Stone. FnP or not?

Hello, I read in other group about the Sense of Stone ability if count as FnP or not, since the wording says "Whenever an affected unit suffers an unsaved wound, roll a D6. On a 6, that wound is ignored." It says "unsaved wound" not "loses a wound". So it trigger after...

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

Because my stealth team was in the first set of drops and I had no idea where his units would go or if I would have first turn (he was using a typical Astra Militarum list), I decided to put them in the devilfish... Hey! Although your idea is really cool and imaginative, I don't think you can trans...

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

Great topic to bring up, Arka! Thanks! I think it's important to keep re-visiting things in the meta- certain units tend to trend for a while due to synergies, and people write lists using them, then the discussion fades away. Revisiting these topics lets us assess whether the theoryhammer that see...

Re: The Y'Vahra - A tactica

Awesome thread. Can you clarify please if the Nova overcharge both weapons or a single one? I was playing that it overcharge only one. Thank you. It actually overcharges both. It had been even asked directly to ForgeWorld, althoug I don't remember in which post was said. If you analyze carefully th...

Re: Follow-Up: Homing Beacons and Fusion Commanders

Great topic to bring up, Arka! Thanks again for your great job in ATT! Regarding that QFC Beacon thing, I see it like this: When you try to design an all-comers list, I think is hard for me to justify on spending 110+ points (usually around 130) on the Stealth Team + Homing beacon only to have the c...

Excellent games, your list sounds absolutely brutal. Mind posting it in a new thread? I'd love to take a look. Thanks!


I was going to ask for the same!

I look forward to chek out your list, You_Father_Sky.

If you play PL, then ATS all the way. S5/AP-1 works quite well.


Agree with that, put some AP-1 all around, you will be paying for them anyway in PL!

Re: Stealth Suit Durability Analysis

What does the keyword Infantry have to do with it? That's an excellent question, and my answer is: this is a huge thing to bear in mind when evaluating or comparing different units. For example, I was comparing once the "Inceptor Squad" from the Space marines with our Crisis suits, which ...

Re: XV25 Support systems (new player)

Hey there! Welcome, Darthi! In my experience, I tend not to put expensive systems on my stealth suits, not if those systems are force multipliers (ATS, Target-lock), given their poor fire output and their already expensive price. Drone controller is perfect, given the Stealth suits' durability, and ...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

I was #1 in the itc for a good chunk of the year. It started sliding when the codexes came out. Now I am currently in 13th or 14th. I have one more gt I will be attending before LVO so we will see how that goes. Tau can hang and the new itc missions as well as the chapter approved goodies will help...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Burst Cannons - instead of a re-price, which i think is more likely, they got a rework to assault 5, AP -1? That would help differentiate them from Gun drones more, but it would be a buff for more than just Crisis Suits. Stealth suits, devilfish, pirahna, etc etc. Of course, if that gets done then ...
