Re: Weekly Discussion #1: What happens to Gue'vesa once they join the Tau?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I swear there used to be rules floating around from GW about including Gue'vesa in your army. I always thought the humans that did join the empire from conquered Imperial worlds would be confined to their planet of origin, unless they had some particular skill or ability...

Re: Shield drones. I'm totally confused.

While on the topic of confusing things with shield drones, Do you roll damage when tanking wounds on shield drones? Had this come up in a game and we ended up rolling off for how it played out. ( I lost the roll off) but curious if someone can point to hard info that determine the order of operation...

Re: Competitive army 2k no more Mr nice guy :)

I like the concept. For competitive, I would consider trying to lessen your drops and kill points. Do you want all these small 2 man drone units that are easy first blood kills and kill points? I would consider rolling them all into the bigger drone squads. Specifically the stealth suit drones. If t...

Re: 2 000 Tau&Imperial Guard vs SpaceMarines&Krieg

How does the campaign account for surviving units after a battle? If a unit is wiped, are they then gone forever? If there is 1 guy left standing at the end, does it get "refilled" with fresh troops for the next battle? Its important to understand what the long term ramifications of any tr...

Re: Building a cadre while deployed (NEW PICS)

I am groot!

Now that I have that out of the way, I love that oaken model! It fits so nicely with the kroot head swap, and I'm really looking forward to how the Root hounds and treekin-krootox conversions turn out! Keep it up and I would love to see how an entire squad of them looks

Re: [2000 FSE/TE] Competitive Match v. Space Wolves - C&C Please

In my experience, a smaller number of high-quality shots does well against Marines, as long as you hit. I do wonder about the Farsight Bomb, though. You could take Farsight + 3 regular Helios a bit cheaper, then have enough points for another Sunforge monat or some Stealths possibly. Not sure if th...

Re: [2000 FSE/TE] Competitive Match v. Space Wolves - C&C Please

I like the most revised version of the list (the one with a Raven commander and the two smaller sniper drone teams) The best part about it is it is very Modular. All the units have places in both static and mobile play styles which allows you to better react to the final list he brings and you shoul...

Re: [1850 FSE] Suit list for NOVA GT C&C welcome

Since I don't have anything to modify because your list is great, I thought I'd contribute by double-checking your points. There's a mistake in your total calculations. I calculate 1850 of 1850, the CAD being 1103, not 1101... using the exact options you listed. In fact, the subtotals you listed pe...

[1850 FSE] Suit list for NOVA GT C&C welcome

Tau'va Commanders! So I have been furiously working to construct, build, and paint my dream all suit army. It has been a while since I've played in a GT, and since NOVA takes place in my hometown, I figured it would be a great goal to try and get my army ready for the Tabletop. I think I've settled ...

Re: Better version of the eight (viable at 1000pts?)

@crom I actually intend to deep strike the bomb in all but the most extreme of circumstances. The kroot will also outflank 99% of the time. Deployment is less of an issue with this list. Yeah, holding objectives has been a real pain. Thankfully the list does a very good job of grabbing secondary ob...

Re: Better version of the eight (viable at 1000pts?)

I would still like more opinions on the list and specifically how to deal with the horde problem that others are seeing. As a former Ninja Tau player, I have extensive experience "Warhammering" with small numbers of units vs entire armies. The best strategy for keeping your unit functioni...

A little bit of an update on the riptide. I have finished it to a point of table top readiness, but I still want to dive into all the details and edge highlight the green armor. I wanted to put the pictures up to see what you all think? Tell me what you liked about it and tell me what you don't like...

Re: 1850 Farsight Enclave Auto-Sniper

I love the multiple sniper drone teams and I will put this concept to the test in the next couple weeks. Looks like a fun list to fiddle with. I do have a question for the OP (or anyone that knows). For the riptide, how are you using 4 hardpoints when it only has two maximum? (Velocity Tracker, Earl...

Re: Eldar threat spotted => and engaged

Nice battle report Thawman! Any suggestions on how to deal with them?? my advice would have been to castle up. Looking at your deployment, he had you in a pretty bad position before the first turn even began. You look a little too spread-out. Eldar tactics are very similar to tau tactics; they excel...

Re: [Battle report] Operation "Deliverance" [Campaign]

Just wanted to say I love this campaign so far. You have inspired me to use a very similar format for a cross-over BFG and wh40k campaign! I especially enjoy your short and to the point recaps of the game. Your style of keeping the report more narrative and cinematic than a diagram of "here is ...

Another interesting use of the Stealth Shas' Vre "Free markerlight shot" is to buy the markerlight and target lock as well as the Early Warning Override (EWO) system on the 'Vre. This gives you the only Markerlight platform that can fire as an interceptor (To my knowledge at least!). If yo...
