Re: Rumor Engine Picture Analysis: It's Tau?

yeah, see your point. "handle" in the image is at the end of whatever it is, rather than the middle underneath as with the chainsaw. oops

Re: Rumor Engine Picture Analysis: It's Tau?

I'm pretty sure they don't do rumour engines about things they've already announced So something else with that chainsaw? How salty will people get if they announce a knight and then rumour another :D maybe a variant? like our customisble XV8s. Can you see where im coming from with my description?

Mont'ka and Kauyon Special rules. How to use?

Greetings All Still rather green here, havent done many matches yet. Was wondering how you would use the two tactic special rules in a match. I understand the wording, just not sure on what situation you would use it. Kauyon- re-roll failed hits (if havent moved). This fits with the trap ideology of...

Re: Has anyone modeled an ATS?

I might suggest the "official" multi-tracker as a substitute. the dodecahedron, with dots and an antena. I've previously used an "official" velocity tracker for a drone controller (looked most like a DC to me) I think fluff wise ATS is more software than hardware, hence no model ...

Re: Anvil Industry conversion parts - anyone used them?

i personally haven't but i quite like the heads. hard to tell with nothing for scale.

weapon not a big fan of, but that's me.

do also quite like the muzzle flash set (http://anvilindustry.co.uk/The-Armoury/ ... zzle-flash) for some of our larger suits.

Re: Starting an Army

When painting, I bought 'fun-tac' to make priming easier. Its perfect for holding weapons on. :) Yep, blu-tac, fun-tac and many other iterations are for this. One thing it noticed is just be careful to get all of the tac off when you come to prime, don't want little bits getting stuck under the pai...

Re: Flamers and overwatch- not actually that useful?

I feel your pain, does kind of suck not being able to use the flamers. But in terms of fluff wise, consider before the actual charge, the opponent squad gathers together to plan/psyke themselves up. Its at this point/just as they start you do the overwatch. After that, your squad has slightly panick...

Re: New to the Game; Couldn't Help but Choose Tau

Welcome to 40k and ATT. I myself have only been at it 1.5 months. One tip that ive picked up quickly is look into magnets for the suits (particularly XV8s). Being able swap out loadouts on them is useful (not stuck with a "bad" loadout, potential changes coming soon with codex) and also it...

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

So, to summarize, we pretty much all agree stealth suits are one of the better units as of the index and many of us like to take them even if they're generally a little weaker than a commander because they bring a different type/style of durability plus the chance for a beacon drop. That sound abou...

Re: Starting an Army

the whole balance flux thing was a main reason why i chose to magnetise my xv8s. i can now easily swap out weapon loadouts that have turned into paperbags or that no longer suit me, and can stick on ones that work a bit better.

Re: Stealth suits for dummies

Hi Can we get back on topic please. This was just suppose to be a quick topic to help me understand the uses of stealthsuits (new player and all). Kind of devolved into a written arguement involving commanders vs a stealth team. Will admit was useful seeing alternatives, but now it is a bit much. Th...

Re: Starting an Army

Good luck and have fun. One last tip i have found is don't worry about experimenting. These small sets i feel are a bit more forgiving. say you damaged a gun whilst drilling for magnets, or messed up slightly on a paint coat. Its going to be one of 10, 15 or more of the same unit most likely, and on...
