Re: Flamers vs. Burst cannons

While you don't have to use the homing beacon, they generally become a high priority target and will most likely now get to do much flamer damage if you don't use the homing beacon.

Re: Tau Take 2nd Place at Wet Coast GT 2017

I modded this list up to 2000 for the CoC I was at the weekend after Wetcoast and got into a 4 way tie for first with it. Ill be using something similar at BAO this weekend. I always troll around ATT before events to see what other Shas'o come up with. For the record, drones in the devil fish is one...

Re: ITC FAQ update: multiple tau nerfs

This thread made me giggle. Commanders, no matter what rules pass or don't pass, the Tau have always been victorious. don't beat up on Frontline, they run the ITC with little praise for what they do right, which is making a tournament series that world wide players can play in. And lets not forget t...

Re: Warzone Damocles: Mont'ka

In the new codex there is a list of "other" formations that commanders are known to use such as the rip tide wing, sky ray sky sweep and others. Probably will be seeing these in Montka

Getting ready for my first ITC tourney of the year 1500

I played a 1500 list against Geoff iNcontroL at 1500 points to get ready for a 1500 point tournament in Sacramento which will be my first ITC game of the year. I posted it on my teams blog if you want to check it out. I got rick rolled by geoff, but I have made several mods in the time since, mostly...

Re: Tau at the 2015 LasVegas Open

recon, I just want to clear up that I am not the one who used flyrants, Justin Cook did. He got best overall Tau for LVO, I got best overall for ITC. My list is ninja Tau. You can find my list and at modelingforadvantage.com

Re: Tau at the 2015 LasVegas Open

It was an outstanding tournament. I played 6 really tough opponents and had a blast, the real competition for me was to make sure I had enough points to finish out the ITC. It came down to the wire with Steve Sisk running dangerously close to taking the top spot from me. He made it to the top 8 and...

Re: Tau "Ordinatus" level weapons?

In the book Damocles the Tau build a weapon on the moon around Mygoth Bay that when fired rips apart an entire city, but then destorys the moon as well.

Re: Monat Blindshot?

I like the concept, my question would be whats the target and do we have another unit that does it better. I like crisis heavy builds so my ability to use units like this is stretched thin. If I were to take a unit like this I would need to know that it will deliver enough of a punch to be worth it....

Re: Fighting flying daemon prince

Ive said it once and Ill say it again, the skyray is one of the best units in the new codex. True it will not always kill a demon prince in one turn of shooting, but after it has off loaded its missiles it still has sky fire marker lights. If you do not kill the demon on the first turn of shooting, ...

Re: 1750 tourney list with snipers

I do not comment very often but you caught my attention with the inclusion of the sniper team. Here are my thoughts, as Shas'o AJ pointed out your list is all over the place. This is not a bad thing as long as you have a plan in place for each element. I do not think this is the case with this list,...

Re: [Duel Con] Tau, Daemons, Meta

I listened to the 11th company podcast with the guy who won Nova. All I could think was wow blood angels would have rocked that army. One squad of thunder hammer storm shield termies and those riptides (which he bragged about posting in the middle of the board) would be dead and the list folds. Scre...

Re: Suicide XV8's

This topic reminds me of a quote from Puretide around which I base many of my cadre designs: "A good commander is not afraid to lose his men. A great commander doesn't have to." It is against the Tau'va to suicide your units. If you are putting them at risk make sure they have a distinct p...

Re: Zenta's Cadre and WIP

#1 Thin your paint. Your paint is much to thick and is what leads to those chunky patches in photos. If using gw paints, its ok to go 50/50 paint and distilled water. Doubles the amount of paint you have too. That color orange from GW was really hard to find a good constancy. It was the hardest par...
