Re: Revisiting CIB Builds (Again!)

It wasn't the greatest list, but I ran a commander with 4xCIB in a 500 point game against Blood Angels the other day. In hindsight, I think I would have benefited more with 3xCIB + ATS. I feel that would have dropped more marines. He was running some ridiculous captain though which wrecked my army. ...

Pretty sure the index left out the Hammerhead keyword on his profile but an FAQ/errata fixed it.

I'd ve very surprised if Sa'cea isn't an option.

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

Just did not know that this 5+ save is this FNP-Rule. But thank you for pointing it out. :D Thanks Wes for the Explanation. Now I got it :fear: If you are a new player this can be very confusing. The FNP thing is jargon from previous editions where all of these special saves that happen after the a...

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

Which units have the FNP-Rule? Just all with keyword Drone? If the same unit fires with two or more shots with the same weapon, is the damage of both transformed in one mortal wound or does one of them kill the Drone and the second has to be taken by a second Drone or the target? Thank you for your...

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

I definitely recommend you print a copy of the Xenos updates for Tau. The updates to savior protocol rules and shield generator rules are important. I'm sure the other Tau updates are important, too, but they haven't had an impact on my play yet.

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

No, because it takes a Mortal Wound. It can, however, use it's "Feel No Pain" ability (on a 5+, ignore the wound) They have a feel no pain :-? Yes, they have a 5+ FNP. It's in the Xenos FAQ/updates. If a unit with the Savior Protocols ability takes a wound, that wound can be changed to on...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm excited by the idea of new models. But as someone who just picked up the game a few months ago, I'm also dreading it. I haven't gotten a lot of use out of the models I already own. If new Crisis Suit models are released, for example, I'll feel tempted to buy. I was looking forward to a short per...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Kroot can control their evolution, so I'd allow them to choose one type of "kindred trait" at the start of battle. Maybe these Kroot are hard to hit, these have plus one toughness, these have plus one movement, these have plus two leadership, or something along those lines. Perhaps they co...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Speaking to Markerlights, is there a scenario where one level of ML support could remove the negative to hit modifiers of some enemy units (Eldar, Supersonic flyers, etc.)? Some rules allow their units to get up to -2 to hit, so maybe removing that whole buff is a bit too strong, but we could negat...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Rather than give it to all/most units as a keyword, I think it would be a good 1 CP strategem for any unit with the Fly keyword. Allow those stealth suits to drop a homing beacon and hop back, for example. It makes choosing to use it more tactical and costly.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

Sorry if either of these have been mentioned. I hope this isn't just a wishlist. I'm going to highlight an issue that GW should be considering, and then give my thoughts (wish?) for one way to resolve the issue. (1) Support drones (recon, pulse accelerator, grav-inhibitor, guardian, stealth) are too...
