Re: Torch

Hmm... Not a fan of the chaos stuff. I was under the impression that the dawn blade was a necron weapon, or even Old Ones tech. Also, didn't Farsight retire for 300 years? That doesn't sound like a galaxy conquering warlord to me. Doesn't so like that to me either, especially since most of that tim...

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

The unit name on the datasheet is 'Strike Team' and is made out of 5 - 12 Fire Warriors armed with either rifles or carbines. So yes, they would still be called a Strike Team. Or is this not a rules question, but some weird meta-philosophical language conundrum? I am slightly confused. Yes it's a m...

Is it Still a Strike Team with Pulse Carbines?

Dear Tau'fann -
It is pretty much accepted now that in 8th edition the preferred weapon for fire warrior is the pulse rifle. However, if fire warriors were armed with pulse carbines, would they still be called a 'strike team'? ;)

Thoughts?

Re: Airbrush advice

n1md4 I wasn't acquainted with Iwata Neo airbrushes but I do you use airbrushes for painting my models especially vehicles. But looking at the Iwata website I'd say you want to get the Iwata BCN airbrush. The Neo only has the gravity feed for painting; which is good for doing 2-D art or small detail...

Re: Torch

Torch There have been all kinds of background on the Farsight Enclaves, but much of the early lore has now largely been left out of the official cannon. It's mot so much that it was "retconned" but rather it just ignored or forgotten. List of Rumors and lore about Farsight and the Enclaves...

Re: Alternative empires and relations with tau

So what about these "factions"? Are they official? Have you heard about them? http://warhammer40kfanon.wikia.com/wiki ... ry:Empires Well, from what I could find out all these "empires" are fan created and therefore not official "canon". But since there are one hundred...

Re: Commander Deffblade

Commander Deffblade - welcome to the A.T.T. Orbital :nice:

Your name translated in Tau'sia would be Kunas'nan or if you prefer Kunas'r'nan. The difference being the second translation could be read as Deff Longblade; otherwise they're the same.

Re: Onmyou's Motivation Service

Dear Tau'fann this isn't what I was suppose to be working on, but it needed to get done. I had to finish painting a Sternguard drop pod for my son's Raven Guard army. Photographing the model was a bigger chore than painting it! :neutral: Kept having to change the back grounds, the lighting (built a ...

Re: Thallax Cohort compared to Crisis Battlesuit ?

I have to second leo1925 on this one.

What do you want to do? IAre they human-made crisis suits or tau-made-for-gue'vesa suits? Either way you went you could create the stat line to match whatever you wanted. Personally, I would use a crisis suit stat line and model them however I wanted to.

Re: Onmyou's motivation service

DO NOT second guess your self! IMHO coloured bases are just fine, especially since painting it black just looks like you didn't paint them at all. Shows how you took a little extra step. ;) All mine and my sons' armies have painted bases. For my Ork army each mob has a different coloured base so I t...

Tau'fann - I knew there was an article where there was conversion of human and other heads to make Tau heads. What I forgot was was that it was here on the A.T.T. forum, but from 2009.

Ignoring the title for a moment, as we're not really discussing whether the ethereals are "good" or "evil" here, but rather how they might have come to be, this video brings up the interesting notion that another alien races DNA may have been borrowed. Harkus959 it would be best...
