Open topped vehicle.

Hello I recently played a small game against an orks players. He had a truck of burna boys which he moved shot and charged my firewarriors. This is where the question comes into it, being that the truck is open topped can the passengers fight in close combat just like shooting or not. Neither of us ...

Re: Rules about drone controller.

Sadly, to my knowledge, this tactic will not work as intended because the effects of drone controllers do not stack. Even if you are in range of 3, you still only get the +1 BS benefit and that is it. Ergo, in your strategy, you would only have BS4+ gun drones. Furthermore, and I'm not completely s...

Rules about drone controller.

I had an idea the other day and was woundering about clarification regarding drone controllers. If you took a unit of three crisis suits each with a drone controller (not sure what to put in the other weapon slots so some insight would help there aswell) Making 3 drone controllers for the unit. And ...

Re: Burst cannon or Fusion blaster for stealth suits?

The benifits of taking stealth suits are really worth taking them.  The ability to deploy strait onto an objective is briliant, although be careful as if you put then strait into the opponants firing or charge range is worrying. But the -1 to hit helps here as it works in melee and shooting. This de...

When ATS is crucial.

I have 5 close friends that also play warhammer 40k. We play a lot of games together. I play tau, with the others playing necrons, orks, tyranids ultra marines and a black tempar grey knight mix. Our games are sometimes 1v1, 1v1v1, 1v1v1v1, 2v1, 2v2, 2v2v2, 3v3, and sometimes all 6 of us play on the...

Optimal loadout against quantum shielding.

Hello i had a friendly game with necrons player recently. I had not played necrons before. I found his ghost ark and annihilation barge almost impossible to kill. I had brought quad fusion commanders (usually 2) as my anti tank and i found them useless when compared with the quantum shielding and li...

Re: Best game ive played.

Sounds like a great game! Just to point out- you didn't technically have a Spearhead detachment, since you had 2 Heavy Support choices, not 3. Anyway, here's one suggestion too: I had a triple misslepod commander with ats and 2 shield drones (warlord), missile side with ats and 2 shield drones, lon...

Best game ive played.

Hello everyone. Me and a close friend had a friendly game recently, by that it was just before chapter approved came out. We decided we would do 1000 points and both use only a heavy support detachment. This game was mainly to test our units. We both new that they were not very competitive. We playe...

Re: 1500 point list. Advice wanted.

Looks like a solid list! If I understand correctly you have the Longstrike paired with the Hammerhead, the Breachers and Darkstrider in the Devilfish, as well as deep-striking Vespids and Commanders? Longstrike isn't uncompetitive, but there are a few things we need to fix, I think. First, Darkstri...

Re: Vespids. The unsubg heroes.

Vespid are very good in 8th. I wrote up an article on them at http://advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=25885 They do exactly what you want Fast Attack to do; fast moving, decent level of threat, not the most durable thing in the army. I read your article. I was unaware they benifited ...

Re: Vespids. The unsubg heroes.

I recently played against a black templar grey knights combo. I was tabled on turn 6, if game ended at 5 i would have one by points. Over 2 turns my vespids were able to kill 1 5 man paladin unit and 1 10 man black templar unit (not exactly sure what but basic space marines.) Before they were killed...

Vespids. The unsung heroes.

In 7th edition i didnt touch vespids as they were a seriously underperforming unit in my opinion but, now in 8th edition i have used them in almost every game to a great effect. I use 2 squads of 6 (each with a strain leader) the deep strike ability to jump them down just in range with their guns, i...
