Re: Anyone Going to LVO or Adepticon

I will be at both, however I don't know if I will play at adepticon yet. LVO for sure Ill be playing. We are debuting my manta at LVO also which will be a big deal for me. Ive slowed down gaming since SoCal so I could work on it and I am happy to say it is almost done, just a few days left to get i...

Re: Revisiting CIB Builds (Again!)

I have been considering a deep striking squad of xv8 with CIB so this thread is very useful info all around. The advantage that the crisis unit has over the commanders is the sheer number of bodies it is when manta striking. I would use homing beacons either way, but you want to get crisis up in the...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

I was #1 in the itc for a good chunk of the year. It started sliding when the codexes came out. Now I am currently in 13th or 14th. I have one more gt I will be attending before LVO so we will see how that goes. Tau can hang and the new itc missions as well as the chapter approved goodies will help ...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

Drones attached to squads will loose you games in the new itc format. That's what coat me every game at socal not understanding the new format. Bringing drones along in pairs is unfortunately a liability. My opponents would focus on the drone pairs and just make sure to kill a bunch of them and it w...

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: 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, ...
