Re: Playing against Grey Knights 1000 pts, please help

Personally, I'd swap the missile pods for plasma. Still wounds on 3's but better AP.

Re: Anyone nostalgic for the run-up to 8th Edition?

That shouldn't happen anymore. They now have a clear view of what Codices are supposed to look like and they can adjust all the point costs yearly via the generals handbook. What publication would they do that in? The $65/£35 core rulebook? Or does it look like they'll release a little book like in...

Re: In need of help. I can't seem to get past 3rd turn.

I agree with a lot of what's been said already. A few thoughts, try changing your detachment type to a patrol, or something other than battalion to free up your requirements. At 500pts, 3 command points is probably fine. The other piece of advice is look at the weapons you're bringing. The biggest t...

Re: XV8s - From Theory to Tabletop

The 3 or 6 squad size is for the narrative play selection because of power levels. For matched play, you can have between 3 and 9 only 0aying the points for what you take. So 5 is perfectly fine for matched play.

Re: gloss/glazes

Well I use ardcoat on all my Tau because I do a metallic green for all my armor. If photo bucket hadn't done it's dumb move of charging for hosting, I'd direct you to my galleries.

Re: New 8th FAQ

I don't really understand this conversation. If Longstrike doesn't buff himself with his ability then he also doesn't buff regular hammerheads. Because they both have exactly the same keyword! The argument is, the non-caps word refers to the datasheet name , which the Hammerheads of course have. It...

I'll second this. Imgur is great.


Ha, my wife just told me that as well. Looks like I'll be doing that when I get home tonight. Shame about the 8+ years worth of project logs and such.

Re: Cadre Fireblades: Our true Markerlights

detachment limitation is just for tourneys. normal games don't have those I wonder if some players will try to cite that rule though? I mean, it's optional obviously, but someone's going to try to argue it. They really could only argue it for matched play at best. So that may also come down to what...

Actually, I think your into something here. Consider this; the drone port rule Drone Control Systems states that when a T'au Empire Infantry unit activates the docked drones, those drone may use that units BS in place of its own. There is no mention of for how long, such as "the turn they're a...

Re: Can I still play an All Suits list in 8th?

And, add to that the homing beacon on stealth suits and you can get your deep strikers that much closer if need be.

Re: The run to 8th edition

I meant it more like a list of the problems that I see with our units and weapon designs and to bring overcosted units back on par both with the rest of the army and alse comparable units of other armies. Purhaps, but the way you framed it doesn't make it seem like answers to a critique of actual g...

I have dive through the indexes some more and added some more ideas on my list.
