Re: KX-139 Ta'unar Supremacy Armour discussion

This weapon is interesting. At first glance, I looked at it and went "Oh, so it's still worse than the Pulse Driver...", but having thought about it more this morning I'm not sure that's true. Some pros of the POMD: Has built in ignore cover on the S8 AP3 version Can D weapon lots of stuff...

Re: Multiple Drone-Net VX1-0s?

The answer is "no," because the bonuses grated by formations for the same benefit don't stack.


Says who? That's absolutely not true. Psychic powers and wargear don't stack, but that has nothing to do with formations.

Re: Fan Dex

So let's take a look. Note: I know it might be considered 'insane' and I'm not sure how broken it could end up being- but I would love it if the Firewarrior Strike teams had the same drone choices as Pathfinders save probably the Pulse Accelerator Drone. Which ones would you consider taking? Pulse A...

Re: Fan Dex

Some thoughts. They're straight forward, hope they don't come off as too critical. My personal opinion on fandexes is they either go overboard with powerful or overboard with everything being too expensive, and so none of the cool new ideas would ever get used. Sub-Commander (Shas'El):... Shas'els b...

Re: Riptide: Heavy Burst-Cannon, Nova-style!

You will on average get two gets hot results (1s) out of the 12 dice. This has a 1/36 chance to do two wounds to your Riptide, and a 10/36 chance of doing one wound. With the one wound case, 10/36 * 2/3 = 5/27 = 18.5% total probability that you take a wound. With the two wound case, <math>: The tota...

Re: 1850 Tournament Variant List

My interpretation is neither. It states very clearly what it can't do. I'm not trying to do so. An "army" is not a "CAD", and a "CAD" is only potentially part of an army. They are taken as a part of your CAD. Yes. You're CAD needs 2 troop choices, Yes. and the drone sen...

Re: 1850 Tournament Variant List

Actually, their rule says they don't count towards your army's compulsory troop detachment. My army doesn't have a compulsory troop detachment, my CAD does, as a detachment in my army.

1850 Tournament Variant List

I've been playing around on Battlescribe for a little while trying to find a variant of my list that maintains almost the same firepower, while sacrificing some durability for more movement. I think I've found a decent list, and I'd like feedback: Tau Empire CAD Commander, C&C Node, MSSS, PEN, S...

ITC Tournament List

So, this is my first ITC event, and the different rule set requires a bit of lateral thinking for Tau. Coordinated Firepower and Ta'unar nerfs\bans mean that our best heavy-hitters are gone. However, the recent rulings did allow some interesting things swing our way. Specifically the Y'vahra and the...
