Re: Archetypal Static/Agressive 2000pt. List

I know the whole Idea was one of the starting premises of this thread. I'm really interested to hear people's thoughts on these types of builds and explore different variations, but I feel like it deserves it's own thread, with a dedicated primer. I wrote down some of my thoughts, but I'm not reall...

Re: What happen with our german tank? (Off topic).

No longer a member of ATT so I'm guessing a ban of sorts. No idea though. He had had multiple warnings about it.

Exactly what I was after since one bad save is a dead guy. Our choices for flat damage are so few that I think this is one of the keys that makes Y'varha viable. That and shield drones.

Re: Battle Report #2: Tau Sept vs Imperium (1500)

I can really see the Custodes being a problem as our codex stands right now. Had a 1000p game against them two weeks ago. 5xML on them and they just shrug our S5 AP0 shots off, even a barrage from a Missileside don't faze them. They didn't take a single wound, and that's just their normal dudes. Di...

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Army List

Not a huge fan of the fusion hiding in the stealths... Yeah, it's not perfect. However, since the Stealthsuits are there to assist one of the Fusion Commanders, having a 5th Fusion Blaster has come in handy in a number of games. The Burst Cannons, on the other hand, have done little. Given that it'...

Re: An Appeal for Jump-Shoot-Jump

Our new JSJ is the <FLY> keyword. Expect a stratagem and nothing more. Use the assault phase as it is intended. Yes, we don't operate exactly as before but trust me, our nearly universal use of <FLY> to escape combat is generating the tears JSJ used to. So in that respect we're the same. :P

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Army List

Not a huge fan of the fusion hiding in the stealths nor do I like the idea of having more than the min size min number of fire warrior squads for a battalion. Tossing in a fireblade, too many firewarriors AND the pathfinder PAD means you can probably get another commander OR a bucket of drones which...

Re: 2k Tau vs Imperial Guard

I've noticed with 8th that shooting takes a while now and having two shooty armies go at it it takes even longer. My IG and Tau games have all been fairly longish, none of which got past turn 3 in tournament settings.

Re: Battle Report #1: Tau Sept vs Tyranids (750)

Well played! I assume the use of 5 lights in turn 2 on the Broodlord was to then follow up potentially with the xv-8's should he survive the commander's barrage? Tyrannofex flamer seems brutal. Seems like a fairly easy victory.

Only if you're excluding Commanders, gun drones, shield drones, y'varha, and pathfinders.

Re: Tournament list help

The only thing that worries me in the coldstar. I adore this unit both aesthetically and functionally, but I can envision scenarios where I would very much want the extra fusion blasters for dealing with armor. I think the reduction in anti armor firepower puts greater cumulative stress on your big...

Re: Pure Theory: Designing an "Optimal" Tau List?

So I don't want to derail this thread by getting to deep into speculation on multi-tracker, but I feel I should present this point more clearly as it does pertain to optimal builds. I apologize in advance if this is not full proof, but hopefully will convey my point on efficiency. Marker-light effi...

Re: First Cadre List

Thread updated to reflect current play roster and models available. Over the holidays I received a box of pathfinders and a Get Started! box.

Re: Mordians

Need to start using CC to your advantage against his awful troops. Crash devilfish, y'varha, or dakka piranhas in his mouth and use shield drones near some commanders to clear the heavy weapons. You can pull troops away or into your models to then deepstrike units as well. Stop trying to outshoot gu...

LOL yeah, that's what I was thinking about the VP condition. Our box is incredibly inefficient for the points... I'm all for Commander Spam, but I'm actually not in love with CIB Commanders. They seem to function okay-ish, but CIBs are a purchase in and of themselves, and well... See, against somet...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The cheapest way to get a statistically above 50% chance of 5 markerlights is somewhere around 120 points, and that is without any sort of durability enhancement like transports or redundancy. Actually, you are forgetting that cadre fireblades have markerlights, 2+ to hit and cost 39 points. I've b...
