Re: 1500pts Only 2 Fusion Commanders

That should be fine for 1500. In my opinion, you should change the marker drones to shield drones on the pathfinder squad since people will be shooting the special drones and will need to get through these first. Plus you can upgrade your two shas'ui on the remaining strike teams and get the 2 light...

Re: 2500 pts double Y'vahra

Nice :) thank u, i like this list . But i have a question, why taking CIBs and not plasma rifle ? On models with toughness up to 5 the plasma rifle is doing more wounds, especially per points. for vehicle with toughness 7 or higher the CIBs become prevlent. Or do they just fit into the structure of...

Re: First 40k Army List Ever

In my opinion, drop the second fireblade since they are both hiding in fish anyway and run both fish with strike teams together with the third fish by itself with darkstrider in it. Enhances the punch breachers bring while also allowing them to run from CC IF they manage to survive the assault. Bonu...

Re: Tau forces for campaign

Drop 5 gun drones from the 11 man and add 5 breachers. Done. They also go in the fish with the drones and fireblade.

Re: Competitive 2000 point list

Capturing objectives now is purely a numbers game. Troops now have obsec again so you have to outnumber your opponents on the point OR outnumber their obsec troops with YOUR obsec troops. Granted, the best part of the Coldstar is he goes and grabs objectives that nobody is on because he's stupid fast.

Re: Blood & Glory 2000pt list

Multitracker is useless when you have markerlights, period. And Plasma is fairly weak for crisis suit weapons when considering the alternative options. Lose 6" and have an assault 3 gun or keep the RF1 gun that you can't advance with as effectively? Get three guns for your crisis unless you can...

Re: 1000 pts team tournament

Wasting the slots on the crisis with an ATS on a subpar gun that doesn't need to drop the ap any further. taking a termy from 2+ to 5+ which is what their invuln will be anyway or taking a marine from 3+ to 6+. Don't need to take even more armor away. Go with more shots on our bs4+ models, always.

Re: Devilfish in 8th

I used one in a 500 point game to great effect so I don't really think there is a hard line where you don't use it. With that being said, I don't think you take 2 in games under 1250 though. And taking them in lower point games REALLY depend on your list comp and how you are playing. Do you need bre...

Re: Tau forces for campaign

Stormsurge is solid. It can put out some damage while also taking an absolute beating. It's got a good happy middle ground of dishing/taking damage for it's points where the Riptide just totally missed the mark. It's still not abusively good but definitely has it's merits. Don't forget Commanders wi...

They aren't a troop choice. It is likely a typo since he is using a Vanguard detachment.

Re: 1500 for tournament

I recommend dropping a squad of gun drones and getting some pathfinders. Not enough reliable lights for your multiple commanders to get uses out of it. Please you need some redundancy so that when you lose a few you don't lose your 97% hit chance on your commanders.

Re: Devilfish in 8th

The fish is great for transporting breachers, drones, and pathfinders. Transporting Strike teams seems to be a distant 4th option as they don't typically need the fish to get closer to their shooting target. As with most Tau units, we carry a bigger pricetag for having the FLY special rule since it ...

It depends on what you're using the stealths for. What role are they trying to fill in your army?

Re: First 8th 1000 point

I think what we'll see to make plasma more viable is maybe a bump to a flat two damage. BIG maybe but that would come with a higher pricetag too. I'm really surprised honestly that we have very little in the way of flat damage other than the big guns on riptide and stormsurge. I'd love for us to get...

Re: Fire warriors vs guardsmen are they too cheap?

I suspect we'll see some tweak to characters in general since they seem to dislike the character spam going on with our army and within armies like CSM and AM. It might come in the form of higher costs for characters or giving some multiple wound capabilities to sniper roles. I think it will likely ...

Re: Crisis and Stealth Suit Loadouts

And smite will just ignore the shield gen anyway whereas the shield drones will be able to take some of the heat.
