Re: Onmyou's motivation service

Tau'fann -

Re: Riptide’s shield generator

Damn all I can see is a Riptide pilot getting an error message on his UI now like an old windows PC The Tau Empire uses Windows XP? I thought the earth caste IT department installed Linux? No, no wait, that was in the Farsight Enclaves where the earth caste installed Linux. My bad! :roll: TauMan

Re: Onmyou's motivation service

Then I though, surely there must be more like me! So here is my proposal, anyone who needs some motivation, pick a project and join me in racing the deadline! If I actually meet the deadline I will do more of them and try to get as much of my models done as I can. So here is what I agreed on to pai...

Re: A Broken Sword may still cut: Discussion on ways to use 'Broken' Units in 8e

So the trick to making Riptides better is reducing enemy fuel stockpiles, disrupting manufacturing, and increasing pilots' in-cockpit training hours? :D No, the trick is to use the superior dive rate of the Riptide to get away from the Imperial Knights in a dog fight. Never try to follow an Imperia...

Re: A Broken Sword may still cut: Discussion on ways to use 'Broken' Units in 8e

Vio'ra Mal'caor - Hey don't beat yourself up about this! It was a great idea, and in the meantime till our codex comes out, see if you can come up some "stop gap" tactics! History is full of similar situations: The Japanese Mitsubishi A6M fighter plane, a.k.a. Zero, totally outclassed the ...

Re: A Broken Sword may still cut: Discussion on ways to use 'Broken' Units in 8e

Vio'ra Mal'caor Overall a good idea, that we try to make the best of what there is right now; but anything we could come up with will only be a temporary fix. Since the release of 8e we're really in a holding pattern, as we don't have our "real" Tau codex yet. But what's worse is that with...

Re: Clear gloss enamel lenses

Yes I've done that, but it doesn't show up that well for small lens like on Fire warrior helmets. You'll get a better result on larger lens of Crisis suits and vehicles. Works best if you have the done three colours "gem effect" first on the lens.

I just checked and if I make a pdf file, then I can view on my Adobe Digital Editions. However, I don't know if all e-readers can read a pdf files? Tomorrow I will make pdfs of all the stories here and add them to the first post of the thread.
