Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Yes, please do not attack each other. Our posts should remain respectful at all times. On the topic of Sept traits, I wouldn't read into it as much as Chapter Tactics, as much as teasing out subtle flavors. It was stated by GW at the start of this edition that they wanted to reward fluffy list build...

Am I misremembering things?


It just feels like 2 weeks because of all the previews they do. But it's always a week between pre-order and release.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I know it's not proven yet, but don't discount the fact well probably get a rule for hammerheads that let the main gun fire twice, just like guard, Eldar , and Nids. The only question is if it will let us move half our movement range like guard, or sit still like the other two.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The flavor text going with it is: Something slithers from the shadows – is it one of the serpentine servants of Morathi? No – it’s another exciting Rumour Engine: Doesn't sound too T'au to me, maybe necrons. Maybe it's part of the 4th sphere fleet turned to chaos? Hard to make those kits without so...

Re: [Phase 1] The 8th Edition Academy Project Introduction and Table of Contents

Hello everyone at ATT! I just wanted to bring this thread up again as we near our codex release. I'm hoping we can use this thread to ear mark various threads that we've been developing over the past months to help keep track of topics we've started to talk about, and others we might need to start t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Eeer, guys, did Haechi at any point actually SAID he got a sneak peek, or just that "I bet once the codex drops people will stop calling it the RIPtide and go for REAPtide instead" Because the latter can also be pure wishful thinking. According to his initial post that has since been dele...

Well, in case anyone was interested, the last T'au kits to come out were on Oct 31, 2015. Just a fun FYI.

Re: Anyone Going to LVO or Adepticon

Well I'll be going to Adepticon this year. Bought my tickets and booked the hotel. I don't think I'll be doing any tournament play, but I will bring some models to show off.

Re: What happen with our german tank? (Off topic).

If it was a ban, he would have the skull and cross bones on his old posts, which he does not. So it looks like he left of his own accord.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Just remember that this thread is about speculation based on existing material, such as already released codexs or community previews. Wishlisting is (in a nutshell) people throwing out their own ideas to solve a problem without existing material to back it up. If you want to give ideas to GW, email...

Good start Draaen. I have added this to the [Phase 1] The 8th Edition Academy Project Introduction and Table of Contents thread under tactics. Keep up the good work.

They should. Any drone brought with a squad should keep their battlefield role. So drones brought by strikers or breachers should also be objective secured.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think it's also a logical progression to believe that one of our strategems will be something like coordinated fire power where 3+ units must fire everything at the same target but receive something like +1 to hit. That would make it easier to get up to essentially 2+ to hit.

Re: Frontline Gaming - Chapter Approved - Review Discussion

I guess the stratagem is pretty good. But we still are at BS4 4+, NIDS can have their shooty bugs at BS 3+, sooooo why are Starship Trooper esq bugs BETTER than Tau shooting? (Shooting twice, & better weapons) Everything has BS 4+ (except ork boys but they can't hit anything because they are be...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

There was also a mention of no stratagem use for rerolling dice for things like initiative seizing and seeing if the game goes on for more turns.

Re: New tyranids smite spam

Don't hope to see Genestealer. They can do some pretty nasty things with them. Like a guaranteed first turn charge for example (put them in a trygon tunnel and drop a lord in the egg beside them to give them a free move&advance before charging). I'd say Genestealer, Carnifex and the Psyker are ...

Re: Tanks - what a disappointment

The hammerhead key word was added to clear up longstrikes ability. Based on the current codex release trend, I think any new kits are unlikely. GW is pushing to have all books out by this time next year. I believe we will see new models and units in supplementary campaign books which would release a...
