Re: Tau bland in 8th?

Serious question here (not a complaint) for the more tenured among us. I just started playing in 8th (but picked up at the end off 7th) and picked my faction based upon advice from a more tenured player based on; -knowing that I liked ranged/shooty stuff (in general prior experience) -wanting to pl...

Re: Need advice for Sudden Death

In power level games we can actually balance out being "under points" against our enemy by bringing pathfinders with special weapons and by taking crisis suits with big guns. Firewarriors and gun drones(drones in general) are not great for power level games but we still need some for survi...

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

As far as everyone's "I wish crisis suits were BS3+", we won't be getting that. Period. Our most likely scenario for better crisis shooting will be something akin to the old retribution cadre formation where you get to pick several units and those units can deepstrike and gain +1 to hit th...

Re: Casual(ish) 1000pt List Help

Yeah that's a fair comment! I only have 1 Ion Rifle and 1 Rail Rifle though, so I may have to take both of those instead of 3 Ions. I only put the Grav and Pulse drones in because I know the chaos players sure love their charges, so anything I can do to make it more difficult is nice :) I think I'l...

Re: Kelandis

You've a mad amount of battlesuits. Love it! :P I'm currently at 21 crisis suits, 3 riptides, 1 stormsurge, 6 metal and 6 plastic stealth suits, 4 OOP broadsides and 6 new ones, 2 commanders, shadowsun, and old farsight as far as suits go. Waiting to see if Farsight gets some love in the codex and ...

Re: Local Tournament battle report - Tau still got it folks

I liked how adepticon did it last year with keeping objectives relevant in every turn. You got to pick from 10 or so but you couldn't pick that one again and you had to complete it that turn. Made it less random but still had to go for some pretty crazy objectives at some point because you had to i...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Since neither T'au nor Necrons got any big changed in the Chapter Approved, many agree that this is because they will be the next in line after Demons, which is the first codex to be released in 2018. Regarding rumors it's still Lady Atia's " Let's say so much - you will be getting some new ta...

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...
