Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

With regards to the markerlights, I certainly hope they stick with the idea that a mark on a target doesn't vanish as soon as one unit fires at it. If they stick with the current table idea though, it could certainly do with a rework. Another idea would be to trade the markerlight hits in for for ce...

Re: Multiple ATS on a single model

ATS works in close combat doesn't it? We would have our very own One Punch Man layout :D

Re: Pulse Carbines almost useless

Personally, I'm just annoyed that there's nothing to represent the grenade launcher at all now. Hell, even if it was just a rule (an alternate fire mode maybe?) to allow the bearer to throw their grenade out to longer distance it would have been something.

Re: Zod of the Tau: Delving into the depths of the Greater Good

This is fluff, not a court of law. There is more than enough evidence for trickery to be a reasonable interpretation ;)

Re: Zod of the Tau: Delving into the depths of the Greater Good

Ok, I'll admit that "Join us or die" is a simplification. I do see the Tau as representing modern western diplomacy however. When the Tau see something that would be useful for them (resources, etc): - Can we get the current owners to join us? If not only is it now ours (due to them being ...

Re: Zod of the Tau: Delving into the depths of the Greater Good

The Tau are only good in that they offer you the option "Join us or die." in a universe where everyone else jumps straight to the "Die!" ;)

Re: Pathfinders versus Marker Drone Squadrons

Another pro for the drones:
Drones are affected less by firing snapshots (for firing in overwatch or against flyers). Firing at BS1 only halves a drone's effective firepower, whilst it would reduce a pathfinder's firing to 1/3.

Re: [Article Submission] Mark'O'Rain Squad 2.0

Just to clarify, is the thread about combining your markerlight output with a special weapons team? If yes, the Mark'o'Deluge and other Markside teams definitely deserve to be left in. What would the tactica be for a Mark'o'Deluge otherwise? "See Mark'o'Rain, with the changes that you don't mov...

Re: [Article Submission] The Sniperside

Innerwolf: It is for the sake of clarity that the thread should probably be retitled to make clear that you're only concerned with a single type of Sniperside. Otherwise, you will continue to get people trying to discuss Snipersides in general rather than just HRR Snipersides. As I say, my main issu...

Re: [Article Submission] The Sniperside

Kael'yn: I'm not sure if you're trying to agree with me, but that's my point. The term "Sniperside" was already in use before Innerwolf wrote this article submission. In fact, I think it was Innerwolf who complimented me on coming up with the Sniperside and some related tactics. Now, whils...

Re: [Article Submission] The Sniperside

Nekomata, you know as well as I do the original Sniperside was created for using the HRR Broadside effectively (sort of). "Officially" accepting HYMP Broadsides as Snipersides goes against it, telling people: Hey, don't bother, HYMP Broadsides can do the same thing as the others once more...

Re: [Article Submission] The Sniperside

I'm sorry, but I'm just finding your post too confusing/broken to digest: - You say that we shouldn't be talking about snipers in a sniper tactica because it also coincides with the meaning of sniper in real life? - You agree that target selection is the key feature of a sniper, and that all the oth...

Re: [Article Submission] The Sniperside

Tactica-wise, the requirements of a sniper are: - The ability to select the target(s) to be removed. Everything else is purely there to aid in that aim. Range: This helps as it extends the area from which you can select potential targets. Once you have enough range to select your target however, any...

It's only natural that drift happens when there's no boundaries given to a discussion. With that in mind, how does the following sound as a scope for this thread? Focus: The equipping and usage of Snipersides (any Broadside with the Advanced Targeting System - stylistically the HRR Sniperside may b...

Re: [Article Submission] The Sniperside

I'm sorry for wearing an imaginary mod hat, but remember the article is about Snipersides (and their variants), not about efficience of full units of HRR Broadsides in different roles. I think the last 5 topics or so have drifted off-topic too much. It's only natural that drift happens when there's...

Re: Flyers (and the purpose of the Razorshark)

(snip) I always think I could have gotten 2 broadsides or 3 suits for the cost of this thing. And with side and rear armor 10 it drops fairly easily. (snip) I must admit, I've been debating the value of bothering with a flyer at all. Given the quantity of anti-air we can take, have players who have...

Re: [Rules Question] Markerlight modifying BS of Snap Shots

Overwatch fire is still a snap shot, so no firing blasts.
