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.

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...

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...
