Re: Puppetswar Weapon and Head size comparison

https://i.imgur.com/qR8NVs7.jpg Had these laying on my desk so I snapped a picture. Here's the commander CIB, red dog single and double for comparison. They're all pretty close to 35mm counting the fuel cell, so I think those puppet war ones would look fine. That said I'm happy with the red dog one...

Re: Has anyone modeled an ATS?

I use the bottom portion of a marker drone with a small magnet to represent it. It works alright, the only issue I have is that sometimes it only wants to sit on one shoulder on my XV-8's but looks good on everything else. I might add a magnet to to tops of some of my weapons to mount it instead whi...

Re: 1100 point Tournament List, Need help!

Guys Update: YES, TO said we can use 2 Commanders AND 2 Cold Stars :D. This is good news! What we basically have is 672 points of HQ you wanna take to be competitive, and after your close to 400 troop choice, there's a 25-30 point buffer we need to fill. How about a firesight marksman? He's hard to...

Re: Using the RIPtide concept post

I want to start this post off by saying that, despite all the math that says riptides are worthless, and crisis suits are worthless, I genuinely want to make them work. At time of writing, this is 8th edition before the T'au codex release. The Pitch: I've come up with a concept that I intend to try...

Re: 2000Pt Stealth and Fusion Cadre

Hi there! Had a look over the list, and the first thing that stands out is that some of the unit values are off and the list as is only comes to 1932pts. For example, QFC with no drones is 160, and the Coldstars with drones is 166pts. Few things to tweak with the list: -The Coldstar commanders don'...

Re: 1100 point Tournament List, Need help!

Part of the ruling for the tournament was 400pt of transport and troop choices, which is why there was so many fire warriors and the old gun-drone+devilfish combo. It isn't really a rule favours a tau army, but here's an alternative I've written: My apologies, was not reading carefully at all :::( ...

This is what I am thinking: 1. Commander - 4 Fusion Blasters, 2 Gun Drones - 176 pts 2. Commander - 4 Fusion Blasters, 2 Gun Drones - 176 pts 3.

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

Best DC carrier is technically a commander. DC+flamer and he's untargetable. He's in my GCGT list I'm taking this weekend. Just no. TBH I've been wracking my brain on this question for a while based on similar logic, certain commanders can start on the field without too much fuss. The character rul...

Re: When ATS is crucial.

In the case of stealth suits i always put the ATS on the bust cannons and multi tracker on the fusion blaster, in my mind we already have enough S5 AP0 weapons from FWs ang gun drones. I read an article recently saying 8th edition is the age of mobility, AP, and multi damage, and i agree with this ...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

I think you may be forgetting to factor in the massive amount of firepower you lose giving a DC to a commander and taking away his BS2+ entirely with flamers. This is super true, commander suffers proportionally more then most other choices. In order of best to worst DC carriers I think it goes: St...

Re: Null Deployment Builds

Hi Gunrock, This is a really interesting concept! I try to build null deployment into most of my lists in one way or another. I have one question though, do you not want to use pathfinders because you think they're not any use for null deployment? Or do you just not like the unit? I've found that P...

Re: XV8 team 2 outfitting

Hi All As per suggestions from a previous post, going to be outfitting 1 team with 8 fusion blasters for a anti vehicle/tank role, but not 100% sure on what to do with the other team. Was thinking a anti-mass/infrantry build after getting swept away in a 600pt game when a group of 20 poxwalkers wer...

Null Deployment Builds

Howdy Guys! Cadre building has been a little dormant as I'm sure we're all eagerly awaiting the codex, but I wanted to throw out a list I've been milling on trying to integrate some of the ideas from other threads, as well as give people a place to discuss null style lists. So here are the guideline...

Re: Tau Command/Rank Structure

I can definitely see Fireblades having a real command rank, but from a tactical standpoint I think there might be some issues. The Fireblade is probably really preoccupied by directing the infantry gunline- I feel like it'd be difficult for a Fireblade to work so closely with infantry while also be...
