Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm really hoping for decent Hammerheads and Broadsides. I haven't taken a Heavy Support choice since 8th edition started, and that just doesn't feel right. I'm still irrationally salty about the Broadside Railgun being reduced from strength 10 to 8 in the 6th edition codex, so I would be a very hap...

Re: Comm_nagrom's Tau Empire rebuild

I too feel the purifier scheme will look better. As someone whose very first army was mostly gold, it is a very hard colour to pull off effectively. I also have a preference for muted colours. ;) Why not make test models with both schemes and see which you prefer?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Haechi, considering you can't give us any more info, and you rate the codex as "meh", how do you rate our index in comparison?

Re: Tau in the Jungle (Compilation of the ideas so far...)

If you want a jungle paint scheme, I think it's important to note that despite their bright colours, jungles are low lighting environments thanks to the tree canopy that prevents the majority of sunlight reaching the ground. Therefore, riffing off of your first colour scheme, I chose a muted grey-gr...

Re: Drone detachments

A useful thing to remember is that detachments are only affected by army list building. Anything that happens on the table has no direct effect on your detachments.

Re: My First Tournament List! (600pts)

I agree that forgoing a turn of shooting can be detrimental to the overall performance of the army, but I have also found the durability afforded by saviour protocols means you can afford to lose a turn of shooting at lower points levels to pack more of a punch in the next turn. Your opponent will a...

Re: My First Tournament List! (600pts)

At 500 points I run the following list. Patrol Detachment (495) : HQ (176) Commander (176) : 1x Commander, 4x Fusion Blasters. 2x MV4 Shield Drones, Shield Generator.

Re: Bel'kro's 1000 Point TAC (Fluffy)

Thanks for the responses! :D Welcome back! I like the look of this list. The Commander, XV8s, and mechanized Breachers will do well. My worry with though is that all of the units are decidedly anti-elite, with nothing that can really shred hordes. With that in mind, if I were you I would try and up ...

I've managed to get a few games against Astra Militarum, Deathguard, Tyranids, Admech and Craftworlds since my last post, and have refined my list accordingly. Here is the current roster.

Re: PeeJs sept rebuild project

Really nice work! I've always been curious, what's the learning curve with greenstuff like? I've considered using it a few times, but I have always stopped myself last minute in case I end up ruining a model.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I've often wondered on the best way improve the railgun, after all, this is supposed to be one of the premier armour hunting weapons in the game. If the railgun were to deal only mortal wounds, It could go a long way (perhaps too far) towards rebalancing such a costly single shot weapon. Something a...

Re: I'm replacing all my strike teams with breachers... on foot!

So your experience has taught you that by removing the devilfish, not only does it give us access to more guns, but it actually takes the heat off our other units, simply because the breachers themselves are a potent threat? In that case, how many breachers are too many? If we start treating them li...

Re: Bel'kro's 1000 Point TAC (Fluffy)

Thanks Arka! I had a feeling a second fusion commander would be suggested. :P I've been thinking about it for a while, but to me it just doesn't feel right to field more than one commander below 1500 points. My original thinking with the crisis suits is that they're going to be pretty close to the b...
