Re: Codex "no longer available". Signifiicant?

Its completely normal nowadays, that GW switches the softcover only after some time. Happens with pretty much every release of the last year.

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

If it comes to Tau you have to keep in mind that Tau play style is a lot different to space marine play style. 1. Our HQ choices are not the big solo fighters and army centrepieces but more a support unit for the rest of our army. To me it happens pretty often, that i would prefer not to pick any HQ...

Re: Ethereal + 2 Marker Drones + Sniper Drone Team = Win ?

you are. marker drones don't have target lock. Also biggest flaw in my opinion is, that an ethereal is a easy victory point for your enemy. if he is the warlord too, thats two easy victory points. Fielding an ethereal is always risky and his abilities, namely storm of fire, should be used to the bes...

Re: Volley Fire (Fireblade) and Ambushes & Faints (Hunter Cadre)

One additional shot does not mean one additional shooting.
So its 18 shots. 2 shots from rapid fire and the additional shot from volley fire.

Re: Firing arc for Seeker Missiles on Sunshark/Razorshark

Would agree. If called by a marker light its exactly like MNGamer wrote.
But if its fired from the Flyer itself, i would say its a forward facing missile with its usual arc for forward facing weapons.

Re: (Opinion) The Stormsurge Mini

All community efforts of giving arms just make it look worse. Wat....you must be a pretty unique creature. :D I agree too. The no arms look creates that mechwarrior style i always have in mind with tau battlesuits. But i think its a bit like, what kind of mech you want. Gundam vs. mechwarrior ;) Fo...

Re: (Opinion) The Stormsurge Mini

Yep i also have to agree. Closed my Stormsourges cockpit to. To add some other big design flaws that not just the stormsourge but also the riptide and some other "new" battlesuits lack: 1. The feet. This design flaw is so big that even in the world of plastic miniatures where there is no r...

Re: Close Assault Cadre - Some ideas, advice?

I want to focus on the devilfish. I also play a lot with heavy infantry lists so i want to give you my opinions. First you should think about the role of your devilfish where you have three options. First as sole dedicated transport, second as dedicated fire support for its transported troops, third...

Re: Kauyon and Mont'ka books

I can 100% agree. I never was much into all this over epic space marine story telling. I also liked, that in the tau faction, unique characters are not the sole focus of the army and before the introduction of aun'va and shadowsun, i thought the two "heroes" we had (farsight and aun'shi) w...
