Re: Modified Fish of Fury Tactic?

Oh, I agree it's not particularly elegant or subtle. You also shouldn't do it to a squad equipped with powerfists, thunder hammers or similar vehicle wrecking melee capabilities. But it does take out a lot of the guesswork/calculation in the old Fish of Fury, it stops the target in place as well, pr...

Re: Modified Fish of Fury Tactic?

Interesting option, though I'd really need a visual to wrap my head around it. The tactic I plan to use a lot of is to charge the target unit with my Devilfish to lock it in combat for a turn, then on my next turn I'd disembark my team, disengage the Devilfish and shoot the greater good out of my ta...

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

I think that if what used to be considered the worst kind of Tau player suddenly finds himself as the worst Tau player we can learn something.

Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

Great point.

Next question, can one advance after Deep Striking/dropping out of a Manta/whatever the kids call it these days?

Re: Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

Was reading a Space Wolves oriented thread today and the Space Wolves player was complaining about how much more powerful Tau were than the Space Wolves in 8th. I think the old "grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" rule applies a lot right now. We see too.much of what is...

Re: Cadre Fireblades: Our true Markerlights

I don't think a bunch of fireblades as a primary marker source is a really good idea. It's a lot of points for a single token and I suspect characters are going to not be as hard to take out as we think, especially ones with only 4+ armour. On the other hand, as the first step in a markerlight casca...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Traditionally the circle of folks I played with had 1 Blood Angles Army, 1 Grey Knights Army, 1 Eldar Army and 2 Necrons Armies. I learned to put lots of markerlights on a target I wanted dead and to focus the heck out of it until it was gone. Persistent markerlights are a dream.ckme true for me as ...

Re: 8th Edition Tau pros and cons / consensus

Pro
Not being able to disembark after moving means scary assault units in transports have to sit through a turn of us shooting them with everything we got while vulnerable units back away and blocking units take position.
