Re: Combat Handbook: Tips and Tricks for Tau

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...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Destroyers of all types were jet pack infantry in their 7th ed codex. Before that, they were jet bike in the 3rd and 5th ed codexs.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I do wonder about the double tap though. It would put our possible damage output on par with the predator.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

So today's community post about the guard had an interesting rule. Lean Russ tanks will have "grinding advance" which will allow them to move under half their movement value and gain the ability to fire the main cannon twice at the same target and ignore the movement penalty for firing hea...

Re: Can you attach a spare Hammerhead turret to a devilfish??

Yes you can. The devilish hull is the base for all three tanks. (Devilish, hammerhead and skyray. ) It will fit.

Re: Old XV88 Kit

The part in your first picture are regular xv8 feet. You get those because the kit is a regular xv8 with the metal bits to upgrade it into an xv88. And yes, the little triangle bits at the back of the metal feet are flash that need to be trimmed off.

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

Sorry, maybe I worded that wrong. I don't want the theory, i want an example. Something like; "I played a game last week against a guard army mostly consisting of infantry with some armored support. I ran a 15 man kroot squad up my left flank with a riptide near by to attack a group of about 20...

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

Panzer, the same could be said for your staunch defence that kroot are no good. Why don't you humor me with some of the attempts you've made with them and why it didn't work out?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm a little cautious with regards to what Sept rules will affect as well. As more Codexes some out, it will paint a better picture. But this is the first non power armor codex coming out. I'll wait a bit longer to see how Guard and Eldar are doing theirs before I get my hopes up.

Re: Kroot Carnivores article - early preview

Yes, I agree with Arka. Both of you (Panzer and Ghostancisco), give us some excerpts from your battle reports. How did you try this maneuver? What units, if any, were working with the Kroot? What were your targets? I'd also be interested in knowing if you worked in any supporting characters like Sha...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ow what I find interesting in today's Ad mech preview is the war Lord trait. It allows units to shoot their regular weapons in the assault phase while locked in combat. They have to target the unit they are locked with, but that sounds good for us if we get something like that. Especially breachers....
