Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

I'd want to ask; Should the XV-9 be T6, like Ralai? Reasoning: Originally the XV-9 were +1T over the XV-8. Now they are listed with the same T but more wounds. O'Ralai, built on an XV-9 chassis, has +1T still, and the extra wounds. If the intent was to simulate the increased durability with wounds i...

Re: Thoughts on a "Variable Fighter" Coldstar

I actually used a 1 /170 scale gerwalk/Guardian mode VF-1 for a Coldstar a while back, shown somewhere in this thread(about 3/4 down the page I think): http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=24472&p=309034#p309034 I used one of Paulsons bits for the burst cannon, and mostly l...

Re: XV9 Hazard Support Team - 8th ed. discussion

I've always liked XV-9s, so the fact that they compete effectively against several crisis configurations this edition makes me quite happy. Mathhammer aside, the XV9s do have a couple of advantages not accounted for in the raw damage. First, they're the only Monat option left, other than a commander...

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

Aye, the Y'Vahra costs between 394 and 396 points(incl. weapons which all cost 0). The shield generator appears to be another 40. Edit:or is that just to get 4++ everywhere and not just inside 12"? As I read it the base 5++/12" 4++ is listed as a special rule, not equipment, so is include...

8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

SInce the other FW Topic is focused on the Y'Varna, figured I'd open this and quickly posy my initial impressions of the new FW index. I'm not going into a lot of detail, just a general overview for now, since I've not realy sat down and analysed. First, they've introduced a new Weapon type; Macro. ...

Re: Fresh from Forge World - XV109 Y'vahra for 8th!

Just downloaded the e copy of the Index. Overall I'm mixed on it; some things seem like they came out well, others...not bad, but more odd...as if they didn't really look at what they were doing. (example; the experimental pulse munitions rifle on O'Ralai doesn't actually seem to have a pulse muniti...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Yeah, but a Railgun shots from 72". You can blast him with that + some good Crisis and Commander Deepstrike with Fusion or Plasma. Bubblewrapped with Shield drones. I don't know, I think we have a bright future with all this little buffs. Can't wait to play the game. Read the bat-rep. The post...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Dang it...did the edit function go away, or can I just not find it?
Obviously, in the last example the two pulse carbines would point out as a burst cannon

Re: The run to 8th edition

So right now I'm transcribing the leak info to a spreadsheet (same thing I always do, just getting a headstart on the actual release) some of my first observations: I notice the Stormsurge now only has a 6" movement, making the Blastcannon harder to use, and AFP and Flamers appear to no longer ...

Re: List building and commander loadout. Need advice.

I would point out there are a number of threads about magnetizing suits that may help you. It's not as hard as it may look at first; my biggest problem is keeping the magnets oriented the same way. If you start, I would suggest magnetizing the flight stands for your suits and drones; it makes them e...
