Re: Modeling Tau Females - a discussion

I just use the female Tau heads that come with some recent model kits, and paint then a shade of cyan as opposed to the dark blue I do males, so they stand out. :)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

What I want: Different sets of Markerlight bonuses you can pick from. Some Sept that doesn't allow you to take Markerlights, but units have the BS bumped up to 3+. Or even just a general rebalancing to have all Suits and vehicles be BS 3+. Given the limit to MLs now it makes sense to have a higher ...

I doubt we'll see a codex this year, Tau are a pretty hated race. Even by GW


Tau also sell a crapton of models. I think it's safe to say we won't have to wait too long.

Easy conversion, it's just a drone with some multi-tracker gizmos to be glued on the bottom. ;)

Re: How are Broadsides deployed?

There are apparently special Manta types to deploy larger battlesuits like Riptides and Stormsurges, so same principle.

Re: 8th edition battle report Tau vs Ultramarine 50 power ratings

Well if you don't understand how superior movement is useful it's kinda hard to explain. :D Don't ge me wrong, I got the concept, just the firepower that regular commander brings on the table is overwhelming. :D Yeah, it's sad, when everyone hits on 3+, except the shooty army. :D What was the final...

Re: Welcome to the T'au Empire, no longer Tau

It's pronounced the same and T'au has been the homeworld since the beginning, so it at least makes some sense. Not really a big deal all things considered.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Frankly, let's all get some games in, and then maybe wait for the real codex/battletome/big ol' Tau book to come in before making ranking judgements.

EDIT:Hell, I remember people calling doom and gloom over the 6th ed codex...

Given that they are spelled out as very differently, I'm not sure that's the problem here.

Re: Has Tau deepstike hit the deck???

I meant that pathfinders have the scout rule which is a sort of deepstriking. Or has that been removed??? That was basically a free move, not really like deepstriking... You said' was'. So it's been removed??? It worked, er, absolutely nothing like deep strike. No scatter, you can only start from o...

Re: The run to 8th edition

They just got a new one in 2015. So that seems almost impossible unless its a sprue insert. I think if crisis are bad the only thing we can hope for is GW introduces the successor platform. Wasn't that just the 2001 kit with a few extra bits? No, they gained an actual waist section, and every other...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Dark Eldar rules leaks in. More ways to debuff our BS on certain units. Venoms can give us -1 to BS when shooting at them and they still have a fnp thing from flicker fields. The IoM has massive amounts of vehicles with smoke launchers that debuff BS. Venom's are cheap enough to spam in the DE dex ...

Outside of Kill Team, where you still have to use usual composition but then they can move around and mingle independently, no.
