Re: Tau Artillery

You will understand why seekers wont work when I get around to posting it. A seeker would work for a single target or building, but not for mass bombardment and suppression, especially when you have counter battery fire coming in from the other side. There's a reason we still have artillery today de...

Re: Tau Artillery

Working on a large scale battle story involving multiple divisions and so forth. On the small scale we fight our battle on, cadre vs similar sized battles they do not need it, direct fire works fine. On a larger scale artillery is required, especially in mountainous terrain where either walkers cant...

Tau Artillery

Currently writing a story, what do the Tau use as an analogue to artillery? They have to have something for heavy long range out of LOS fire support, modern warfare would be next to impossible without it. I know they have the suit version which is stupidly short ranged for what I am looking for. I w...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Recon drones do not have a niche. Right now they are effectively unusable being shoot or move combined with BS2 and their extremely high price tag. My biggest observation even before I found out the shoot or move thing was the other two drones would have served me better playing the scenarios. Findi...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Fluffwise pathfinders have been noted for their use of physical camouflage. I remember somewhere it was mentioned on Taros they hide in the hills under ghilli cloaks and laser pointed passing tanks for out of LOS seeker missiles and the Imps eventually had to send up someone to worm them out before ...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

I played a variety of armies on Saturday, my above was just for Tau. This one is my personal observations for everything I saw. Orks- Loved playing these guys. Most fun warband I played. Very powerful with low cost, high toughness, high strength, high WS stats. Yeah they have low BS, they also has a...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Wow, totally didn't notice the recon drone had a move or shoot weapon. I don't have the rules at hand, are fusion guns heavy too? If so that makes the stealth suit totally useless and I played it wrong. I won both of my games but only because I played the mission and extremely unlucky rolls on my op...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Played a few rounds this weekend to get used to the rules. PLayed my warband and both scenarios were complex scenarios. One limited me to 5 dudes with the secret mission to get across the board. Opponent had scouts with sniper rifles but only had four dudes. Predictably he split up his guys around t...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Wrote the above before realizing there was an actual forum for shadow war. Anyway, firmed up a list. Man we are nerfed in gear compared to others. No camo? Really? One of the only races in the 40k universe that regularly uses camo as standard practice sends its recon teams who rely on camo and we do...

Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

So somehow we have gotten a ship full of pathfinders and a few other guys somehow lost in one of our mini-jumps through the warp and coincidently ended up in the Armageddon system and for whatever reason, thought it was a good time to go easter egg hunting for promethium in the still occupied ruins ...

Re: Counter-Strike Cadre and Scatter Free Deep Strike

Couldn't you do the same thing with an Infiltration cadre? I don't remember it saying you couldn't bring a transport(could be wrong) You bring three squads of pathfinders anyway, plus two stealth teams and a piranha. I think it would be more effective support wise unless you really want to bring a b...

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

Lets see, I was looking at a sgt with carbine, a regular pathfinder with carbine, recruit with carbine, dude with markerlight and carbine, a specialist with rail rifle, it is rapid fire apparently, and a pair of recon drones. I think this fits. Of course this changes with however specialists are hir...

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

Odd since they are no longer leaks when the rules are physically out there in the public's hands at this point.

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

We don't know exactly how the game will play out in practice so the unit rules might not be everything especially when you put them into game context. My friend with the advance copy hasn't had a chance to do much more than a quick read through on topics he wanted to see. A terminator is going to be...

Re: Necromunda/shadow war: tau rules

Tau have a major disadvantage vs IG(one of my other armies). I have gone over the IG list and while its pretty straight forward, it has a lot of options. Your basic non-recruit trooper is a vet guardsman for 12 melta bombs and he has WS3 and BS4. Add on carapace armor for 4 bombs and a lasgun for 5 ...

Re: 8th edition

Meh 2nd didn't take forever to play if you knew the rules. 1500 points was a good sized game, I don't think I ever played more than 2k. My 1500 point list was like 17 models. My group had it down on average to an hour per 1k points. so two people playing 1k each the game might last 2 hours. But we k...

Re: 1k Intorducing tau to new players

I would but I don't have an burst cannon model. My opponents aren't completely useless so I am not going to completely tie my hands. I just didn't want to curb stomp them. If the BA guy plays what he did last time, its an inefficient force but its still all termies and a land raider so I don't have ...

Re: 1k Intorducing tau to new players

He is part of the formation otherwise I wouldn't bring him I didn't buff him up in anyway for that reason, not that I had the points anyway. I could use those points to bulk up my crisis team squads. I might look at Farsight Enclaves, its been awhile but I think they can bring suits as troops and ju...
