Re: Darkstrider question

I've always liked the potential applications of Fighting Retreat and thought it would have made a superior army wide rule to Supporting Fire. You can use it to deny a charge. You can use it to prevent a multi-classing. You can use it to force an enemy into a charge they don't want to succeed anymore...

Advanced Tactical Applications Cadre

So, this is a placeholder thread for a project I've been dealing with on and off for the last few years.

Re: Custom tau females and "rambo" like guy

Based on the 7th Ed Codex, there is no visual difference between male and female firewarriors from the neck down.

At least once they are armoured up.

Re: Custom tau females and "rambo" like guy

This guy is not giving a care about GW IP lawyers, is he?

Those super stealth suits look pretty awesome. The pathfinder has some cool design elements as well, though I am not sure what the rules benefit of the visible navel and camel toe should be.

Re: Feel no pain and how to overcome it

Deathstars, of which Death Company is a classic example (that hasn't necessarily aged well) as a rule need to be drowned in wounds. You can either swarm them with mid strength shots and count on pure volume to overcome the saves or you can hit them with high strength low AP and bypass as many saves ...

Re: 8th edition

I would expect that Unweildy will have some sort of negative effect on the timing of the strike, though when, they will get to strike is unpredictable with certainty at this stage.

Re: 8th edition

Being able to attack first is actually pretty huge for Tau. The WS chart isn't kind to us, but our Initiative Stat is the killer in combat, we generally only go after the other guys have decimated our unit.

Re: 8th edition

Well, if AP 2 equivalent will still negate all armour saves, it would be. -5.

AP 3 then is -4. AP 4 is -3, AP 5 is -2 and AP 6 -1.

But it could just as easily be AP - and 6 are 0, AP 5 is -1, AP 4 is -2, AP 3 is -3 and so on.
