Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

One shot less for AP-1 seems like a fair deal to me, so an accurate comparison to a Burst Cannon IMO. One shot more is statistically worse than ap-1 so no, it's not the same and not worth it. BC should be around 7 or 8 points to bring it in line with what other armies are paying on BS4+ platforms. ...

Re: 1000 points suits list

My suggestion would be to run your only commander as a QFC and do two of the crisis CIB teams. I'd split the drones as 3 shield, 3 marker on both. I would suggest another commander of any flavor and maybe some stealths if you want beacon shenanigans or a good DC caddy. Just make sure you have enough...

Re: 1250 Highlander Tournament

My two cents here is going to be if you're taking Darkstrider he needs to be teamed up with people who have special weapons IE pathfinders with ion/rail or breachers, good on you if you have both. I recommend throwing special weapons in with the pathfinders and dispersing marker drones places with a...

Re: Arka0415's 8th Edition Army List

Do you really have that much of an issue with the DC bubble that you need 3 of them for 4 squads? I generally operate them as a giant cloud of drones, which scares the holy piss out of people, and can get 6 or 7 squads covered with relative ease. I've found since there's no more blast templates that...

Re: 750 point list - tactics and modifications

I will point out that if you're counting on a decisive alpha strike with the Crisis suits, you're only going to be able to use their fusions. Good point. "Alpha strike" may not have been the best term, because the crisis battlesuits would need to survive an enemy turn to make full use of ...

Re: Crazy orca tactic that just might work

Ok, hear me out. I saw someone who was saying that the only use for an orca would be to stick 64 drones and a cadre fireblade in it. But it got me thinking. What if you put not only gun drones but also sniper drones in it (like 20 or 30), a firesight marksman and an XV8 team with one or two drone c...

Re: Painting models to look like holograms

Could do the clear stealth suit trick and recast in clear resin and paint normal except leave out certain rows/columns of "data". Could be an interesting effect at least.

What?
When did that happen?


Since they got rid of targetting array as a vehicle mod in like 5th. Hammerhead and skyray are bs3+. Piranha, devilfish, and flyers are bs4+.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I thought Skyrays were BS 3+. I may have just confused them with Hammerheads. In any case, GW is looking to nerf smite anyway and has proposed the -1 per cast as a beta rule. Also, psykers have a chance of blowing up and smite can only target the nearest unit. Seekers would be able to focus fire on...

Re: saviour protocols with shield drones

It's all explained in the FAQ. Just did not know that this 5+ save is this FNP-Rule. But thank you for pointing it out. :D Only shield drones have a FNP. Thanks Wes for the Explanation. Now I got it :fear: If you are a new player this can be very confusing. The FNP thing is jargon from previous edi...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Don't look to our models or statlines to change but instead look towards our gaining of CP costing strats for our buffs and bonuses in the codex. Remember all those broken/nearly broken formations we had in 7th? Expect most of those to come back in the form...

Re: Anyone Going to LVO or Adepticon

Definitely not going to Adepticon this year since we don't have a book yet. Had fun in other events last year but even then those events will pale in entertainment with an index vs all the strong books.

I know the whole Idea was one of the starting premises of this thread.

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...
