Supreme command
QFC 2 shield -176

Outrider

Not exactly suit only but if you don't take drones you're shooting yourself in the foot.

Re: New player

I have found vespid to be very useful in small games where cheap, fast units with good weapons are invaluable to snag objectives and push people off of them when need be. I have seen others using kroot exclusively to keep first turn assaults or deep strikes from getting a little too close to home. I...

Re: 250pt vs Ork Escalation League game

I disagree with arka on the dropping of the markerlight. I highly recommend having one because it takes your very good shooty commander, who will be basically all of the points in any of these lists, and make shim go from 83.3% chance to hit up to above 97%. I would bring the following: commander wi...

Re: 1k list loadout ok?

So still on 1k points but now preparing for a team tournament. Still have with the latest load out: 1 Commander QFB (2 shield drones) 1 Ethereal (on disc) 10 Firewarriors (rifles) 10 Pathfinders (1 ion 2 rail, fixed!) (2 shield drones with the 3 specialist drones) 3 XV8's Crisis (5 gun drones 1 shi...

Re: 1000pts semi-competitive

Personally, I don't think Longstrike is worth it in such a small game. He's roughly 25% of your army who won't be doing enough damage. Take a second QFC and add more drones. And having 10 lights in this list means that IF you go first on average you'll get 5 lights on one target but likely won't EVE...

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

And I will pretty much always tell you to split those firewarriors in this list to get free CP's for having a second battalion but I know you hate that style of play. You may have to get used to it and sing a different tune when we get our codex with sexy CP devouring stratagems. :P

Re: 2000p Semi-Competitive list

Coldstar: I like my coldstar to have ats . I previously liked the idea of a shield generator but it maybe unnecessary. The target lock suggests he will be super mobile all the time. My current preference atm I want to try out in my next game is ats + multitracker. I figure it will have a nearly as ...

Re: Spending those last ~100 points

Personally, given your two fusion commanders, I would go for the stealth suits option. I'm leaning toward the Stealthsuits too. However, I really don't want to drop the Rail Rifles, since I really love those weapons. Here's another way to add Stealthsuits that would preserve the Rail Rifles, that I...

Re: 2000 Pts. All Comers/Tournament List

Didn't think about the modelling portion. Thanks for the clarification BUT I would say drop the markerlight as you are paying for the target lock as well as the light. Just put that 9 points into lights for the strike teams and consider it a bargain. Put the VT on the fusion one if you do end up kee...

Re: 1,000pts - Vior'la Fireblood Vanguard

Guardian drones are basically worthless. I recommend just dropping them and making two tactical drone squads of 7. Really I also recommend not taking two breacher squads in fish in 1000 points but hey, your list.

Re: 2000 Pts. All Comers/Tournament List

I'm so very confused by the stealth team 'vre who has a markerlight AND a fusion blaster. Which is he, backfield support or frontline tank hunter? You have a DC on him so I assume he's support so why on earth did you fit him with a gun he'll use once a game if that? Take more drones with the PA dron...

Re: 1000 first competetive roster.

I think I'll end up going with the stealth heavy list. Although the one thing I'm considering is whether you even need a missle commander if he's not on drone controller duty? I could get 20 points out of somewhere and turn him into a second fusion scalpel. Like minus 3 drones for a total of 33 tha...

Re: Tau Power level abuse 100PL

Abuse at the max for PL for us is on Crisis suits/commanders with missile pods, pathfinders with rail rifles. Min size all the squads and maximize their upgrades and spam them. Points/PL goes pathfinders, crisis, commander. Firewarriors actually come in at an underwhelming 21 points per PL when maxx...

Re: 1,000pts - Vior'la Fireblood Vanguard

3rd fast attack is easy. Drones. They are superb at the moment in either gun drone or shield drone flavors. The general consensus is that the extra support drones tend to be a liability to some and in most cases they get targeted first since they are separate from the squad. For the pathfinder drone...

Re: Effectiveness of EWO

Depends; If your enemy places his units more than 12" he loses the ability to charge the same turn and you get a whole turn of moving (away) and shooting...or even counter-charge beforehand. If he deploys in EWO range you still get your shooting. EWO = Your enemy decides if he wants to get sho...

Re: Need help bringing list from 100% to 75% to make it fun.

I'm of the mind that you should punish everyone in the tournament. Tournament is a tournament. Friendly play is another story but I still feel you should challenge newer players and get them to think in whatever form that ends up taking.

Re: Vostroya and Tau

Yeah, that was with the use of issuing an order which AM seem to have PLENTY of to get the extra shots from FRFSRF. Could be really nasty with plasma but I don't think they can get get it efficiently in the numbers that would be truly scary.
