Re: Stormsurge vs hammerhead

I would opt for a hammerhead with Longstrike, and then another hammerhead.
The stormsurge is good, but point heavy, and I think it needs more marker support than what you have. I run mine with shield generator, ATS, and stim injector. Tough nut to crack.

Re: So about those Riptide Wings...

Yeah Panzer, I know it wouldn't happen, but in previous editions Marneus Calgar had the choice of what armor he wore into battle, either terminator or I think artificer. So you never know.

Re: So about those Riptide Wings...

Man I don't know what I'd give for the following:
Farsight in Riptide or Coldstar
Shadowsun in Ghostkeel

Two of these have been in books, Farsight pilots a prototype coldstar in the latest novel, and Shadowsun the Ghostkeel in the two campaign books from 7th.

Re: Heavy gun drones in 8e

I used a squad to back up my hazard team and they worked well. Also great point about the Brigade heavy slot, they are inexpensive and helped be build a pretty decent 2000 point brigade list.

The last time I looked your work here was amazingly inspirational! Unfortunately, I've returned and it looks like non of the images are working now :-( I'm trying to get these back up but it's going to take time. In the meanwhile I've set up a facebook page you can check out, right now it's the eas...

Re: [Project Log] Shas'o Dre's Farsight Enclaves Cadre

Hey gang, since photobucket has axed 3rd party hosting I have decided to create a facebook page to share my Tau models and conversions. So if you'd like to check it out here's the name you may have to look it up as the link isn't posting to the right page:

Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

right now I think we should stick to the errors. we help them find those and point out the mistakes and it may open the door for a discussion on points and intent. But i don't want to send them any wishlisting. This could be a chance for us to be heard as we play tau way more than any playtester cou...

Forge World tau Index FAQ help

Hey gang, a friend of mine showed me a facebook post from an Eldar group where a member of the Forge World team acknowledged the errors in the book and asked for assistance in getting them brought to their attention so they could be FAQ'ed ASAP.

I have just finished going through the FW index, and seem a little confused. Please forgive if this has been answered or if I have missed something.

Re: [Project Log] Shas'o Dre's Farsight Enclaves Cadre

Been a rocky start for me and the Tau with 8th. Lost 4 out of 5 games so far, and even contemplated putting them on the shelve! But a number of signs have made me stay the course and fight it out. The biggest sign was the title of the new Farsight novel coming out in July: Crisis of Faith! So I'm ba...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Hey Dawnstar, just curious as to how far the charge was, because if he was outside of 8" you could not have overwatched with flamers. My opponent pointed that out to me and made sure to keep his orks at 8.1 inches and with 'ere we go' he made the charge easy.

Re: Observations From My First 2 Games of 8th Ed

As mentioned Fireblade can't give breachers an extra shot. Glad you won, but wonder if you would have had the same results without the added firepower. Looking forward to hear if you do, gives me something to be positive about.
