Re: Formatting Army Lists

Yes but a newcomer to English is unlikely to post here anyway, considering decent English level is demanded at the inscription.

I just think it makes thing clearer, but it doesn't change much in the end.

I would also advise against using too much parenthesis for the sake of clarity.

Re: Formatting Army Lists

I think the w/ is very much understandable by everybody, even if English is not your mother tongue, it's a self explanatory and as you said, it's also used in other languages albeit with other lettera, but it's very easy to figure out. About abbreviations, I think it should be limited to the minimum...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I just want our army to stop being so random. Nothing feels worse than landing a +4 (or +5 to hit) and then rolling low on D6 or constant 1's on D3 damage. Why do all our more powerful weapons hit so randomly. Cyclic goes from steady 3 to D3 for a grand whopping 1 str and D3 wounds. Why cant we get...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think with 'Vre at BS 3+, ML should still provide an additional +1 to BS, but could stay on the higher end of the markerlight table. On Stealthsuits, I disagree with all getting 3+, it would be ok balance wise, but what could explain Stealth suits having more accuracy than more expensive Crisis su...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think 3+ for Suits and 2+ for big suits would be too strong. And I like the depth brought by Markerlights. However I agree 100% that 4+ across the army is stupid. I think the simplest thing to do would be to give all the Shas'vre a 3+ BS. This makes all the big suits playable, Stealth, Crisis and ...

I take advantage of this thread to as the following question :

Where can you get cheaper accessories than Games Workshop's ones : pinces, brushes and the like ?

Thanks !

He is close with some playtesters who have told him our shield drones are going to be the only ones with SP Wow, this is a huge nerf if it's true. I was more expecting a point increase for drones. Especially considering they-re not so hard to deal with. I don't know how crisis suits will survive th...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Overwatch on 5 for jetpack units could also be an alternative to JSJ, it would become JSSJ. It would represent the suit taking off just before the ennemy engages, the jetpack giving a stabilisation ? Otherwise, about BS, I think the best thing we can hope is the following : - Drones: BS 5+ - Shas'la...

Re: Rebuilding a 2000pts army from scratch

Honestly, this looks absolutely deadly! A few easy fixes though- first, drop one Fire Warrior squad and add a squad of 5 more Gun Drones. Second, your Ghostkeel is overpriced by 30 points, so it's actually 181. That said, your list is 1972 points... is there a little more we can remove to add a Fir...

Re: Most Competitive / Best Synergies loadouts: a loadout codex

I think you are missing the true best beacon delivery, 3xBC 1-3x SG, 2 shield drones, number of shields depends where you want it on scale cost-safety, also SI on 2 wound models is less then optimal and I wouldn't waste space with that Aren't SG and SD redundant ? If you invest into SD, isn'it bett...

I just edited my list, after some extra read and thoughts on the forum: Changes: - No more ATS on the Crisis teams, I went for more dakka instead with more weapons, DC and gun drones. It seems to be more effective. - To make out for the loss of AP, I gave ATS to the Ghostkeel, I feel it synergize be...

Most Competitive / Best Synergies loadouts: a loadout codex

Hi all, There is many threads on the forum about the different and optimal loadouts out there, but it can be hard to track. So I have decided to make a thread that brings all the interesting loadouts together. I haven't included Rptide because it's not at all competitive at the moment, nor FW units ...

I really find your paintjob amazing ! Well done ! You have a very good looking army.

However, I looks like on your pictures that you forgot to paint in black the muzzle of your pulse rifles and carabines. is it intended ?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I was thinking about what could keyword jetpack be. Instead of JSJ like stuff, what if it was a fixed advance move, like the Cold star commander ? Suits could have 8" inch movement and an additional 8 or 6"" advance. It would greatly improved Suits mobilty, so they could redeploy afte...
