Re: 8th Edition: The Eye Opens

We're still filthy xenos. If anything- i would think everyone just got a little more intolerant of everyone else.

As well as it should be amidst our grim-dark-universe of darkness.

8th Edition: The Eye Opens

Here is a map of what the new 8th Edition 40k Galaxy looks like with smaller 'Eyes' opening all over. Note that the Tau Empire has the Fantasy Flight 'Hadex Anomaly' as the closest major rift site. I'm hoping that GW ends up taking all the fluff from FF's brief management and includes it and this se...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Well, I've played about 4 games now- here are some realities for us: Bottling out is really really easy. With no real way to improve LD you need to get a specialist into your games as fast as possible. The Stealth Pilot is the only way to get a high impact weapon which is essential against some of t...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

I've played 4 games now and... Man is it rough on Tau. Two things that I've realized is that the Tau never do well in specialist games (until an update makes us 'op') and that GW really doesn't think that much about us. To begin with; We don't do anything 'unique', especially in this game: We don't ...

Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

I'm sorry but there is nothing good about a Phil Kelly assault on the canonical battlements. We'll have Tau with red blood, Ethereals who's soul purpose is to manipulate the Empire for their devious ends which include the mass slaughter of their own citizens and Firewarrior lines being over run ever...

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

A subforum might make sense at this point.

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

GW just came out with the 'ok' to use necromunda rules and equipment charts: the shadow war and necromunda loot/campaign/trading post charts all deliberatly line up with rules.

Chainsaw shas'la are now a reality...

Re: WIP Shadow War Armageddon Pics...

Where have a seen those bases before!!!

Good stuff man, I especialy like the file work on the faceplate (the anime style drilled holes I'm going to try out- looks good).

I'd recommend adding scout bitz: rope for the safety clip you can buy for your sniper.

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

I think you make a solid point Guges , however, we're looking at the first GW showdown with the smaller-format games like Infinity. This is going to make them relevant in the market and if there is any indication from the Inquisimunda crowd (basically gamers who made up their own game using Inquisit...

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

I played a game today- I gotta say the rhythm is something to adapt to but I love the close combat system. Something to say about the rulebook: this is a very 'blank page' version of this game. We can expect a 'Shadow war' game in the future so don't worry that we only a few weapons and units are av...
