Re: Commander with 4 Fusion Blasters

I'm not using the QFC because I don't like suits with only 1 type of weapon. However, assuming that the QFC stays a thing after the Codex drops (ie is scarily efficient) I am planning to have 2 fitted together slung under each arm. My normal mag mount is the side of the arm, but for an important cha...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Maybe instead of different planets they'll do different services, like fleet-based forces etc. They could differentiate them further by having new client races that are found in discrete parts of the Empire. Whatever they do though they won't prevent any T'au players from buying the new shiney.

Re: Homing beacon question

An add-on question:

You can only use 1 homing beacon per turn.

Only 1 unit per turn can deep strike using a homing beacon.

I believe both of these statements to be true. Are others reading it this way, or is there a different interpretation of the rule?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

My wishlist: JSJ for a CP - means it's not common and therefore time consuming, but you can still pull off cool manoeuvres every now and then. A points break for suits that take varied weapons. Or read it as a points penalty for multiples of a weapon. Lets encourage diversity in a unit that can take...

Re: Early Warning Override

Good thinking putting it on a ghostkeel with that 12" - 2 to hit. One disadvantage of ewo, though: if they put their units in some ruins within 12" but out of line-of-sight, you might not be able to shoot them.. A stormsurge with airburst frag projectors and SMS would be able to get some ...

Early Warning Override

I'd like to know different views on this piece of wargear. It seems a bit meh at first, as nearly everyone has to Deep Strike over 9 away it appears to only protect a 3" ring around this limitation. However.....that 3" is massive to chargers, and many common Rapid Fire weapons, and gives a...

Re: 8th Edition Rules, Mechanics and Concepts you don't like

So oddly, the small FW stuff like Technical Drones have very useful purposes now. Each unit of 2 tech drones can heal nearby <Battlesuit> units, D3 wounds on a 4+ The Tau'nar is a <Battlesuit> .... Thing is - in a manner of speaking, so can a Gun Drone.....it can proactively 'cure' D6 wounds from a...

Re: Markerlight Discussion

How does the community read the reroll 1s in regards to the firing unit? If a squad fires a bunch of Pulse shots and a markerlight do they get to reroll 1s if the markerlight hits?
