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. Elite (239) XV8 Crisis Battlesuit Team (239) : 1x XV8 Shas’Vre, 3x Flamers. 2x XV8 Shas’Ui, 3x Flamers. 4x MV4 Shield Drones, Shield ...

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 ...

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

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. Patrol Detachment (998) : HQ (176) Commander (176) : 1x Commander, 4x Fusion Blasters. 2x MV4 Shield Drones, Shi...

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...

Bel'kro's 1000 Point TAC (Fluffy)

Hey everyone! Seeing as I currently have zero models, I thought it prudent to develop an army list before purchasing, and I was hoping you lovely folks would help me out! Fluff wise, I would like this army to fulfill two criteria: 1) A standard Tau force is all about the Firewarriors (mechanised mor...

Re: Competetive 2000pts - Help me finish!

If you did as you suggested with the Firewarriors, and drop the SMS on Longstrike and the Hammerhead, you would have enough points for a 3 man stealth team with homing beacon. That would leave you 15 points, which you could spend on stimulant injectors to make the stealth suits hardier. Then they co...

Re: Preparing to buy my first army - 1k pts

In answer to your first question, that is why it is recommend to take at least 6 or so drones in a crisis team. It hits the sweet spot of not too large, not too small, and still plenty of firepower, as well as providing ablative wounds for your suits. In answer to your second question, I suspect the...

Re: Hi! A little help?

Hello, and welcome to ATT :D

If you care to use the search function, you will find numerous in depth articles on the units at your disposal, just be sure they're referring to 8th edition!

A good starting point would be Commanders and Gun Drones.

I hope you enjoy your time here. :)
