Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

That proves my point even more. Everyone has unoptimized 8th lists. Even our opponents have to deal with changes and we are still getting destroyed with almost no chance of success. Incorrect assumption. Just as many have said, the Tau changed more than most. That means other armies still play the ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Strange, this is the only forum where I am seeing full blown doom and gloom for the Tau. I haven't been this excited about playing Tau since they first came out. I would venture to guess most players are trying to play the way they always have and get tabled. I just watched a battle report where the...

Re: None GW models played as.......

Excellent. That is what I thought. I was sure that only Assassins bypassed the detachment part etc. The Eldar bikes actually work really well as long as I don't add any fancy gear or psyker stuff.

Re: None GW models played as.......

Great info!

I always get confused by the allies rules. Can I play just a unit of Eldar Jetbikes and not the HQ and Troops like you can with Assassins or do I need to pay for the HQ and troops?

Non-GW models played as.......

I found some models displayed on this site, (Tau jetbike conversion) that was so cool that I decided to buy some and use. The jetbikes I purchased are the same dimensions as the Tetra and I assume would be an easy conversion. My question/issue: I am not going to buy IA3 to get the Tetra rules and I ...

Re: Tau Jet bikes

Wow! Love this conversion on the bikes! I just purchased 8 of them to play as Tetras or Piranhas. I can't find easy access to Tetra rules, (and I'm not buying that ancient IA book). If I go with using them as Piranhas, I will have to convert in some drones. I'm thinking back behind the legs would wo...

Re: The "Cheesy" Tau list

I only hear groans about Broadsides - never Hammerheads, Crisis Suits or anything else.......just Broadsides. Now if you wanted to drag "Cheese" comments out then try this: Doubles Match - 1500 Tau with 9 Broadsides *fill in* Any Close Combat army - (Nids and Blood Angels come to mind from...

Re: Outflank + Krootox

I do agree that in the end it will depend on if the Tau codex is removing the infiltrate ability from the Kroot or just not allowing them to use it when a Krootox is present.

Re: Outflank + Krootox

In 5th you can outflank if you can infiltrate or scout. So outflanking comes from the ability to infiltrate or scout. If you can't infiltrate or scout, you can't outflank unless you have a rule specifically allowing you to outflank. Harker for IG has infiltrate. If you assign him a Chimera transpor...

Re: Outflank + Krootox

The current Tau codex is 4th edition correct? Isn't the ability to outflank from the infiltrate and scout abilities a 5th edition rule? I think it nails it on the head that the infiltrate rule should follow the guidelines as current infiltrating rules have been defined. I play IG and can use the inf...

Re: Upcoming Grey Knight Paladins vs. Tau

nothing assaults 1st turn so if they want to sit a squad way over on my flank and take fire en mass then so be it. Why does everyone talk about a new codex like we should just stop playing because were doomed? If GKs are so over the top, myself and everyone at the gameshop wouldn't play against them...

Re: New Tau Codex Rumors

If anything it will mean a fast Tau release to give it 5th edition viability and 2 years more life and then another 2 years of being behind the ball. You also have to consider the angle that 6th edition may make the Tau better just as it may make other new codex releases worse.

Re: Upcoming Grey Knight Paladins vs. Tau

I had the same thought as they discussed these new midget Titans walking around = "hmmmm, finally my Railguns will have something worth shooting at after all of the armor is gone!"

Re: Upcoming Grey Knight Paladins vs. Tau

I read that there is an Inquisitor piece of wargear, "Plasma Siphon" that modifies an enemies BS to BS1 if they shoot at the unit the Inquisitor is in, (with Plasma weapons of course). How would our markerlights affect this? What is the sequence of their wargear versus our markerlight? My ...

Oh, no panic here. I am actually looking forward to countering what the GKs bring to the table so to speak.

Upcoming Grey Knight Paladins vs. Tau

I have always liked a max AP loadout on my Crisis suits, but the range limitations have always left me with going MP + Plasma. Now with Grey Knight Paladins supposedly being all the rage with FNP and 2 wounds will this be something a Plasma + Fusion Blaster loadout will handle easily or do we see Ra...

Re: New Tau Codex Rumors

The statement, "Tau are collected and not played" rings true. I know a lot of players in my area who own large numbers of Tau, but never play them. With this said GW needs money out of a release which means pulling in new players and making old players purchase new models. When looking at ...
