Re: Jhul'Vol's Cadre

Definitely not worried about AP since -2 is great, I was worried more about wounding and actually getting to do damage against tanks. I suppose with BS3+ with rerolls we miss one or two from all the broadside shots so I guess that helps with the volume of S7 shots getting through. Going to do some m...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

Getting back on topic, do people find that running a drone controller on the crisis suits effective? Would you rather drop a weapon hardpoint for one or use stealthsuits/coldstars? Stealthsssssss. Durable, mobile platform not losing anything to support. Barring that, I'd give up an xv-8 hardpoint f...

Re: Steg's Lists thread: on to 2k?

I suggest hidden lights in min size FW squads to get a battalion. This gets you ObSec troops for a tournament, hidden lights and extra CP. It's only 129 points for 15 models and 1.5 ML on average. I like the idea of a coldstar and QFC for the HQ's and definitely roll with XV8's with CIB's if you can...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

@Yojimbob Yeah I've got three Riptides that haven't moved since 8th edition dropped. I was considering converting one to an Y'vahra. I skimmed over it in the IAI: Xenos but haven't run any of the math on it yet. Have you used it? I'm just wondering what kind of role it fills? Seems like it can do s...

Re: ITC competitive T'au (can we hang?)

I like it all for the most part. Playtest with a Y'varha if you can. Do a weapons conversion from a riptide that I know you probably have benched somewhere collecting dust. :P See if you can do a battalion and squeeze 129 points of firewarrior tax in there. Taking a fish is pretty good since you'll ...

Re: Need help retooling for more competitive play

Note: quad plasma commanders are more efficient than triple plasma suits (both in damage done and wounds per point) and are actually situationally more effective than the more expensive fusion suits, notably vs single wound heavy infantry. But EXTREMELY situational. In 40k, you cannot hope to be co...

Re: Need help retooling for more competitive play

I personally don't care about how many firewarriors I have for taking a fireblade because he has better synergy with gun drones. If you have a bunch of drones then I feel like he's worth it. Plus like Arka said, use him as an easy light plus he's still good to move and use his light too. I feel like...

Re: Advice please: XV8 Vs commander

Just put together a new Commander suit yesterday and I was blown away by how much bigger they were compared to the original crisis suits. I still have old metal heads from the original commander sets so I magnetize the heads and swap out the different heads for extra commanders on my old xv8's to ma...

Re: [IceFall's 13,000+ points] The 'Margin' Cadre

You have 24 Burst Cannons. Each set of crisis suits comes with three and each commander with one, and from your to do list I see you have six CIB and six Coldstar Burst Cannons? so I estimate eight sets of crisis suits (24 Crisis) and six Commanders? Anyway, nice work. That is an absolute ton of th...

Re: The Confused Shas'el -- A Discussion on Battlefield Role for Crisis Battlesuits

I think that's not too bad honestly. I figured with the new stratagem you'll be seeing a LOT of things becoming palatable for crisis to take over for commanders. Upside is more wounds, downside is placement and the fact that you still need less to support the commanders and it's STILL more points ef...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

As far as the hammerhead goes it's pretty clear it will get a massive str bump on it's main gun as well as some form of "shoot main gun twice". Wether or not it gets a price reduction is up for grabs but I suspect Ion will get some points reduction making Longstrike and friends a very goo...

Re: Dealing with Leman Russ Tanks

Yup, charge them with anything like infantry or devilfish and use the QFC's to just keep punishing them one at a time while the rest of the army picks off the lighter targets and grabs objectives.

Re: Ke'lshan Cadre RFC

Swap out the second FB for darkstrider with this many units without the fly keyword. This will allow them to retreat and shoot. This will make your army a bit more blobby by having 30 FW surrounding 2 characters but I had a lot of fun with this setup in the early games of 8th. Give it a shot and le...
