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...

Re: 1000 Points Optimized List

I recommend using 1 QFC, 2 3xCIB+ats/DC and a coldstar. If you'r enot sold on coldstar, go with a third CIB commander. You won't need more than one QFC to handle the big stuff and TRUST me the CIB commanders will mop up anything big that is left over. Have a fireblade with the gun drones for sure. ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Drones used to have it as well and like everything else just made our army more agile. We weren't very fast but we could make several moves a turn to help keep the enemy at bay. Now they seem to crash into us at an alarming pace and we can't seem to get away. At least this is better than just waitin...

Re: 4 FB or 3 FB and Multi-tracker

Multitracker requiring all guns to fire at the same target while burning a precious hardpoint on the best shooting platform we have is absolutely ridiculous. Same reason to not take flamers on a commander, it's a waste of a hardpoint and the ability to hit on 2's. The QFC has always just BARELY done...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Be careful jumping to conclusions based on what was, or wasn't, included in CA. Agreed. Don't count your chickens... The Tau codex will be awesome. We just need to be patient, and wring everything we can out of the rules we have for now. I think everything has been wrung. That's why people are look...

Re: 1000 point Ball and Chain event list help

Fireblade with so few fire warriors and zero gun drones is a poor investment in my opinion. Either drop the fireblade or add gun drones. Longstrike is decent but I would probably trade him for a CIB commander. Drop the guardian drones on the strike teams and make them min squads at 5 with hidden lig...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

also I thing we really should get some way of defense against psykers, idealy armywide -1 to enemy throws during psychic phase, reflecting us being resistant to warp. I suspect we'll see a relic IE Talisman of Arthas Molock come back in a similar form. Maybe 12 or 18" bubble instead of army wi...

Re: Fighting adeptus mechanicus, help!

Yes, getting stand ins for CIB's are definitely a problem for most Tau players. there are some great ideas out there for conversions. Personally, I'd find a way to modify burst cannons as they haven't been useful, ever. Commanders have three flavors of being useful. Coldstar with ATS and people go b...
