Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But its all been said before. GW hasn't really done much to instill confidence in their handling of non-Imperium/Chaos factions. Still not even so much as a word about when a Xenos Codex will be released, or if any of the other armies are getting some of their ancient Resin models updated to plasti...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I guess they could mean that the Fire Caste themselves don't really understand the tech, since it was all 'given' to them by the Earth Caste? But this doesn't mean a retcon or anything, as it's probably just some social media intern dredging up half-remembered fluff even if he meant the Tau stealing...

Re: Converting XV9s to look more "Tau"

XV9s are fine. It's XV8s that should be converted to be more like them--stuff like the Coldstar is partly there already. ;)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Tau don't appear to be any less vulnerable to psychic powers, they just don't really register as much to the warp as humans and Eldar do.

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

I don't think so. Playtesting for the next T'au Codex should be done. And most feedback would be taken from the playtesters and tournament players. Too bad they often have an other perspective on things like these than casual players. I think they might take into account regular player feedback if ...

Re: Tactics Against Imperial Guard

Yeah, I think in general Tau 'strategy' has to amount to 'erm, wait for the codex'. ;)

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

If you like, I'll snap a pic tonight. They are glued in place now, but they are the same size as the taunar one i believe. I'll take a few snaps and post when i'm back from work. Cool, thanks! Hm, I thought it would've come with more guns to magnetize, though on reflection that's for another varian...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

Ah, very nice! Any chance we could see the size of the railguns, placed next to another model for reference? If you like, I'll snap a pic tonight. They are glued in place now, but they are the same size as the taunar one i believe. I'll take a few snaps and post when i'm back from work. Cool, thank...

Re: New Tigershark AX 1-0 Images

Anyone ordered the new model? If so, any chance of pics of the pre-assembled components once it arrives? :) Sure, I'm at work but happen to have some on my phone from my WIP last night. Note that I'm still waiting on the pilots, because apparently they didn't bother making any before putting up tha...

Re: Concrete objectives

I was never a fan of victory points. I've always wanted to play a game where objectives grant you benefits, such as capturing a satellite dish and getting better deep strike. Does anyone know of a source where I can get alternative objective rules? You could handily just do a game about capturing e...

Re: How are you liking the new addition compared to 7th,6th,5th, and 4th

There's some stuff to nitpick, but overall, yeah, I like it, Tau rules aside. It does feel more to the point than some of the tiresome bloat of 7th. Just placing down reserves feels so much more actually tactical than just rolling for them to come on, rolling to see if they come in from there, rolli...

Re: Revised head design 3D

The new suits can be bigger than the old ones, if you mount the torsos as high up on the waist dome thing as they can go, and put them on tiptoes. Then it looks pretty good. :)

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 ...
