Re: 1850 Hunter & Dawn Blade Contingent

I would also highly suggest giving the commander iridium armour.
At this point, you have one massive unit at T4 and your commander is only at a 3+ Sv
That is, if you were thinking of joining them to the broadsides.

Would you also be using the deep strike rule for the entire formation?

Re: COMPLETE - 1850 - Competitive FSE CAD - Tio've Kovash'shi

This thread was a delight to read!
Congratulations with your results, the army looks stunning.

Just curious, based on your games and with hindsight being 20/20. Would you have changed anything in the list or adapted your playing style?

Re: Drone Net VX1-0

OP re-written to be more of a tactica hopefully including most of the lessons/ideas discussed in the thread. If I have missed anything please let me know. It would be nice to have a few tactica for the 7th edition refresh of Tau. If we do put a few together perhaps a mod could create a sticky linki...

Re: FSE codex update changes

The wording does offer some new interesting builds. As the FSE states, any character can take signature systems. Both from Tau Empire and Farsight Enclave. This wording would override the broadside shas'vre unit entry meaning that a broadside could take the PEN chip, Repulsor, Warscaper drone ... Ou...

Re: [3D] My printable 3D parts

I have ordered from Shapeways before for the XV105 Tsunami bits and I used Ultra frosted details. The small bits came out lovely, not a single mold on them but the material is quite brittle. I tried to make a few cuts but it broke the plastic instead of cutting it when I exercised force. That is som...

Re: F.E. "Precision Onslaught" 1850 Contingent. C&C Please

I don't know where to start here! Mod senses are tingling here, such a well thought-out post. Not just that, but you have also made a list that I have been trying to make for months. The use of an allied detachment is brilliant quite frankly. Nothing prevents you from doing that. 2 XV8 Troop choices...

Re: T014 - THE FOURTEEN - Project log

That is magnificent. :biggrin:
The paint job, the posing and I love the use of a Manta firewarrior ( or maybe piranha pilot legs?) for an objective.

I am certainly going to do the same.

Re: 1850 pts F.E. Dawn Blade Contingent - C&C please

I have tried joining commanders to units from the Retaliation Cadre as well. It didn't go well in my gaming club. While Farsight and his buddies would indeed count as a single unit for all rules, the rules do state that special rules are shared when it is indicated in the rule.( BRB IC section) If ...

Re: Warzone Damocles: Mont'ka

That is rather unfortunate.
The way I see it, the "PEN" advantage that comes with the FSE detachments can be done with Tau Empire as Well bug cheaper since we lose more then 15 points to the BK tax.

Aside from a specific formation, I can't really see the merit anymore in an FSE detachment

Re: Farsight Enclaves: Future? IS there one?

Personally, I find that most players are too infatuated with the Coordinated Firepower to see that it will be an irrelevant rule most of the game. Specialised units with ample markerlight support will achieve the same against most units. It's the deathstars that suffer the most from that rule. Altho...

Re: The "Raven" 'Vre led MSS & C&CN unit size

Fantastic idea for a thread. I have never liked the idea of the Raven commander or 'Vre. But under the current circumstances, I am reconsidering him. Let's look at what the Raven brings us at a bare minimum. Twin-Linked USR Ignore Cover USR This comes in at 67 points for a 'Vre with only the Signatu...

If i'm not wrong with my rules for the FMC. Gliding will mean that he moves 12". So jump pack basically. I think I have finally found something that can tank hits for Vespids and retain their mobility. He also seems similair to the XV-109 but without the durability or offensive capabilities. He...
