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

Tau'Va Commanders and members of the other castes. I would like to begin to lay out the ground work for a project that we were only beginning to start thanks to Ell'ran at the end of 7th Edition. As some of the older members of the forum may remember, we had a very comprehensive guide to many topics...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Well I'm pretty confident that all armies will get objsec for their troops. It isn't that average powering on Troops.

Re: Old Formation = New Strategems?

There are several old marine formations that are now strategems. The 3 Vindicators, 3 predators, and even the whirl wind and Landspeeder formations have similar abilities from their old formations as strategems now. It's very likely this will be a trend, I'm just waiting to see the two new codex rel...

Re: Breachers are still good

At the same time though, it might be a tactic to consider in the late game? Those Tac Marines have objective secured now. It might be worth making the last ditch attempt at assaulting them to take the objective. But I agree, not something worth doing as an Alpha strike. Too risky.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I believe it was on the community site. But I agree that it's logical to assume there will be at least some sept traits. Bonus points to GW if the do all the Septs, but 6 or less is what I expect, with 3 of them being T'au, Farsight, and Voir'la based on the index and the recent fluff from the campa...

Re: Drones, unit coherency and Tidewall

I'm pretty sure the FAQ mentioned that the drones do not become a separate unit until after you finish deploying them from reserve, so they would be bound by the 9" rule like the suits.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ok khayman, let me see if I get what you're trying to explain. You're not a fan of one Sept having access to more buffs than another Sept, and that you feel penalized as a player for not choosing to play with the Sept that has more buffs and that the various unique buffs are self contained in 1 Sept...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Yes, maybe you don't mind. But given the ridiculous amount of options a Salamanders player has, you're in a better position to be able to afford not minding. In comparison, a T'au player, having significantly less options, is not in that position. Also, I did say that "hey, I don't mind" ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Maybe for the same reason I as a Salamanders player don't mind that Ultramarines have more named characters than I do? You play an army for its theme. I mean for T'au, my army hails from Tash'var, and I hold no illusion that my Sept of choice will even get a Sept tactic. However, for game purposes, ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Panzer does have a point on that one. You can't look at character specific buffs and not talk about Sept specific ones as well. The characters are basically Sept buffs themselves. The codex will probably flesh out a few more Septs with unique tactics and stratagems. Also, based on the Space Marine c...

This part is interesting however because those detachments decrease your CP by 1 for each one. Now there is a reason not to take under strength units.

Re: Ultramarines Chapter Tactics spotted!

Well, here is the link to the codex review by Winters SEO. https://youtu.be/qpvAr9DRmgQ

Very interesting for the first codex. I'm glad to see objective secured is back. Gives me hope for our codex.
