Re: XV8s - What to take with CIBs

I just realised that too... It would just be on a 'ui. I only did it for symmetry in the first place anyway, but ill change it now to: 1x Shas'ui w/ 3x CIB 1x Shas'ui w/ 2x CIB + DC 1x Shas'vre w/ 3x CIB 6-8 Gun Drones/Marker Drones/Mix For the record, if you only have three suits, you can only get...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

I'm .... VERY EXCITED! I have been waiting for these new models for a while now. I have two AX-1-0 and with the new Tigershark Bomber rules, can't wait to get a pair of the new ones. I've playtested them and they have a LOT of firepower for not that many points. Here's to hoping that this means that...

Re: Use crisis model as commander units

To add my 2 cents... I agree broadly with the points made that there is no reason you can't use an XV8 as a Commander. When the Tau were first released, commanders were literally just the old XV8 model with a different paint scheme, usually a different colored head. I still have models that follow t...

Re: Old Formation = New Strategems?

Agreed.

For now, we should focus on what we can do to mitigate the new Strategems that exist, not speculate on what we'll get. At the very least, Death Guard have to come out before another codex, so we are at least probably two months out (probably more).

Cheers!

Re: Screening units discussion

Play nice guys. It's not the worst thing in the world to suggest that some of the screening units might get cover. Where this might actually come into play is someone uses multiple small screening units vs a few large ones.

Re: What's the best support systems for a stormsurge?

What about the Counterfire Defense System? Rerolling misses during Overwatch with the amount of shots the Stormsurge has proven itself to me to be a powerful tool. Certainly more situational than the others but still something that I think has its place.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

If you are looking for female Tau models to make a fireblade, I'd check out Wargames Exclusive , which is a site that sells Tau model knockoffs. There are a lot of really interesting options. There are also a lot of half-naked options, so be warned. To answer some of the earlier questions about 'can...

Re: How will you use Shield Drones, post-FAQ?

As a note, a 4++/5+++ is effectively a 3+ (that you always get). So they are decent at holding objectives, but don't have the resilience against small arms that even something like stealth suits have (albeit they are cheaper).

Cheers!

Re: Making a Brigade

I'd much rather spend 495 points for three somewhat useful units to fill those slots than taking three mostly useless units for 162 points. CP have great value but gimping your army in order to get them won't do. I don't have a fundamental disagreement with your general point. Certainly Broadsides ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

If anyone's interested, the armies that are mentioned in the First Strike starter set (beyond marines and death guard) are the Astra Militarum, AdMech, Knights, Craftworlds, Drukhari, Orks, Necrons, Tyranids (and Gene Cult) and Tau. So that gives, I think, some indication of the next Codexes GW has ...

Making a Brigade

After playing about a dozen games of 8th ed at 2000 points against a variety of opponents (Space Wolves, Slaanesh, Tyranids, Dark Eldar, Tzeentch, to name a few), I've begun to feel that getting as many command points as possible is one of the most powerful ways to win in 8th edition. As such, I've ...

Re: High potential understrengths?

This thread is getting ... uncivil. If you all wish to keep discussing the merits of various understrength units, fine. If you want to keep lambasting each other, do it elsewhere.
