Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

I also feel your pain. Not only was I too disappointed to find that Jump-Shoot-Jump was not a feature in the 8th edition Tau rules, but I have also experienced a similar loss in Warhammer Fantasy - many of the feelings you and several others have about Jump-Shoot-Jump are exactly how I feel about th...

Re: Where would you put a Seeker Missile on an old Broadside?

There's not a whole lot of room on the base, but I guess I could switch out for a larger 50mm base and mount a small drone next to the Broadside? That would definitely work for WYSIWYG purposes, but I feel like the drone would be a huge visual element given the seeker's almost insignificant rules. ...

Re: Where would you put a Seeker Missile on an old Broadside?

Instead of modifying the Broadside itself (and in no small part because I consider the old Broadside model perfect as it is and impossible to improve on), might I suggest instead kitbashing some kind of carrier drone or seperate launching platform for the seeker missile, and treating it as part of t...

Re: XV8-05 finecast is Shas'O Arra'Kon from farsight?

I wouldn't think so myself. The official media for the resin (and better looking, IMHO) XV8-05 always described it as a generic commander model, with no mention whatsoever to any named character. It's also telling that as far as I can tell the only official studio photos for the model were taken in ...

Re: Is the Ethereals having control over other T'au confirmed now?

So, is the whole Mind control/manipulation thing actually true now? or are they still just hints? The answer is the same as it's always been: only if you want it to be. No matter how hard modern GW has been trying to convince you otherwise, ultimately you have the power over background lore, not th...

Happy Holidays

Shas'O'T'au Kais'Ka'Eoro'Da'Anuk leaned against the pristine white-grey marble archway above him and watched the sunrise through the viewing port of his hunter cadre's dormitory aboard the ATT Orbital. It seemed like only yesterday he had taken his warriors to the planet below to do battle with the...

Re: Not sure what a bit is- command sprue

The pictured piece and its companion represent a set of additional sensor and communications antennas mounted on the vehicle's prow. The two antennas are the front of the piece and the single 'stem' they fork from is the back, with the three prongs plugging into the vehicle's driving lights (those t...

Re: Tau bland in 8th?

For what it's worth, I think T'au are boring AF. As I moderator, I feel I should suggest you read over the ATT Forum Guidelines again, specifically the rules on family-friendly language. Use appropriate language for a G-rated site (U-rated). Using swear words and other inappropriate language is not...

Re: Is it Still a Strike Team with Pulse Carbines?

Well, if we're discussing meta-history, it should be noted that pure pulse carbine Fire Warrior teams are a relatively recent development. In the original 3rd edition Tau codex there was no such thing - all Fire Warrior teams were either armed entirely with pulse rifles or had a mix of pulse rifles ...

Re: Do the Tau make use of wheels anywhere?

As I mentioned earlier, the Tau mass produce backpack sized fusion reactors as part of their standard infantry kit, so I seriously doubt energy production is going to be an issue for them. One interesting thing to consider with logistics and favouring universal use of anti-grav locomotion is commona...

Re: How to make Pulse Carbines viable for Fire Warriors

Oh, I didn't notice I'd put this in Tactics! Thanks for pointing it out. I'm a very new poster so I'm a bit of a newbie. Is it possible to move a topic? If so could you give me instructions on how to do so? I'm not seeing anything at the moment. For future reference, if you ever wish to have a topi...

Re: Do the Tau make use of wheels anywhere?

It's likely that the Tau made use of wheels and tracks in the past, but by the present time they have long switched over entirely to anti-grav related methods of propulsion. This isn't really that much of a stretch - the only real reasons why we haven't done the same are A) we haven't invented anti-...

Re: The Gue'Vesa Freikorps of Paradyso

But I would love add some more *clothed* women to the regular ranks of the Freikorps. If someone knows nice female miniatures (with gas-masks!) that might blend in with Death-Korps of Krieg minis...

Re: Longstrike with closed hatch?

The simplest way would be to simply add some extra antennas onto the Hammerhead turret - this is a common recognition feature of command tanks in real life. Adding some stowage to the Hammerhead could similarly distinguish it, or you could look at sourcing one of the Command Vehicle upgrade sprues r...

You can find out more about Tau language, culture and other lore-related aspects in our background subforum, the Library, along with a range of Tau fiction.
