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

What about other wargear? The one that adds a further -1 to ap could be devastating on the right weapons! Like say boosting the 16 shots from a missileside! :evil:

I'm interested to see some list examples and hear of actual experience using an all battlesuit army in 8th?

Re: Retailation Cadres at 1500pts is it too risky?

To be honest I have a Drone Net but I only field them in units of 5 minimum as with 4 it only take one to die and that's a leadership test of 7.

Retailation Cadres at 1500pts is it too risky?

I'd like some advice in regards to using the 'Retaliation Cadre' in 1500pt games as I have a Throne Of Skulls event next month and this has been bugging me. See there is a huge problem when fielding a fully equipped Retaliation Cadre at that points level, mainly my 6 Stealthsuits and Ghostkeel from ...

Sorry to burst your bubble but that's illegal as only non-vehicle units can become specialists.

Re: Need Help Building a 200pt Tau Kill Team?

Next question; What to arm my Leader with i.e; which squad leader to use? Fire Warrior has the range allowing him to aid in fire fights where he's unlikely to get picked off. A Breacher could be good for when I'm hiding him in a building as an enemy would have to move into line of sight which will ...

Re: Need Help Building a 200pt Tau Kill Team?

Hang on--maybe I misunderstood the original objection. What is split fire? I thought that meant targeting a different model than the rest of the unit (i.e., what Target Lock does in a normal squad), but do you mean targeting a different model with each *shot* (as granted by the Reaping Volley speci...

No, in the recent rules you need to pick the 'Split Fire' skill from the "Weapon Specialist" selection.

Re: Need Help Building a 200pt Tau Kill Team?

What about a Piranha and here's a point; does the Gun Drones generated by Vehicles count towards the model count for Break Tests?

Need Help Building a 200pt Tau Kill Team?

I really like the idea of building a Tau Spec Ops Kill Team but I'm unsure what units would be best for the job... :D Fire Warriors - Solid choice :nice: Breachers - take 5 and keep moving them up and they'll act as a good threatening bullet magnet. :? Vespid - Not really sure about this guys howeve...

Re: How good is the "Ranged Support Cadre" is it a good investment?

To be honest surprised you went Rail Rifle, was thinking of putting one on my Retaliation Cadre's Broadsides for the flanking shots but for the main unit I'm never seen much point?

How good is the "Ranged Support Cadre" is it a good investment?

My Tau army currently consists of a Stealth Optimised and Retailation Cadre, a Drone-Net and will soon be joined by a Riptide Wing. Now I'm thinking of building a Ranged Support Cadre to use alongside my retaliation Cadre for both a good offence and defence. I was thinking 3 pairs of Missilesides an...

Re: 1500pt Retaliation & Ranged Support Cadres

Would you consider giving the Pathfinder teams the Recon drone for the homing beacon? It be tempting as I currently rely on 2 units of 3 stealthsuits for homing beacons, however Pathfinders aren't as mobile or as easy to hide as the stealthsuits and putting them further forwards risks them being fo...
