Re: Riptide or Crisis Battlesuit Team

ECPA = Earth Caste Pilot Array, sorry for being jargony. It let's the riptide reroll 1's to hit and failed nova-charges. That takes the success rate from 66.7% to almost 90%. Given that rerolling 1's helps the Ion accelerator and the Heavy Burst Cannon with get's hot rolls - at a reasonable cost, i...

Re: Riptide or Crisis Battlesuit Team

First off, thank you for all you replies so far and you have put forward some interesting comments that I have not yet thought of. So here is where I am now. Hmmm. Interesting question. My first question is would you consider playing a Farsight Enclave list? This would let you take your Crisis team ...

Riptide or Crisis Battlesuit Team

So I have this little dilemma, Lots of people are saying that I should include a Riptide in my Tau army, most people saying to take them because they are awesome. But here is my problem. I would rather take a loaded unit of Crisis Battlesuit’s instead, as I think it would be more beneficial in game....

Re: Tau Battlesuit Support Systems: Can you name them

Thanks you all for your take on things, I took the liberty of emailing GW direct and here is the response they gave. The good news is that you can use any piece to represent any system. :) In the past there were specific pieces for each support system, but it was so confusing trying to figure out wh...

Tau Battlesuit Support Systems: Can you name them

I have just purchased a new Broadside Battlesuit, and upon starting the build came across a little problem that I am hoping to get a little help with. As most gamers know, Tau Battlesuits come with a varying amount of support / Signature systems that can be taken as upgrades. The kit above comes wit...

Re: Dal'yth Sept hammerhead Gunship - 4th Hunter Cadre

Thank you for your honesty and for your compliment. You are correct though, I love the colour scheme and it originated from Dawn of War Dal'yth Sept. But I can also relate to people not liking the colours. It is a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. I don't want to turn this into a deba...

Re: Death From the Skies

Since Flyers never touch the ground they don't mishap. Interesting... I must have missed that in the rulebook :? ! I don't remember reading a rule that 'excluded' flyers from mishaps? Which I believe is the reason players don't Deep Strike because it is to unpredictable for them. Hence GW remove th...

Re: Death From the Skies

It is very disappointing that a new Tau flyer was not introduced into this compendium and it seems to me that once again the Tau have been overlooked. A close friend of my has written a review of the book that you can read here http://row40k.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/death-from-skies-review_20.html whi...

Re: Dal'yth Sept Battlesuit Commander - 4th Hunter Cadre

Thank you for the comments and thank you for the EDIT. I will remember for next time.

I really did not want to follow suit with the Codex colour schemes, and as mentioned I was playing DOW and really like the colours! When the army is all lined up together it looks great.

Re: Battle Report - 1500pts Tau vs Salamanders & Eldar

Not sure if it was a misremembering of the details, but in your second turn, you mention finishing off the Dark Reapers for First Blood, but you also credit your opponent with annihilating your Kroot on his second turn - wouldn't that have been the first blood? Otherwise, nice battle report! Trista...

Re: How to deal with a Stormraven Gunship

Hi all, Just a quick update on this topic for you, I had a 2000pt game against Blood Angels on Sat night, my opponent usually runs x2 SR's in his list but only ran 1 to my pleasure :biggrin: His SR came on turn 2 and went for my Shos'O and BG's failing to do any damage. I was a little concerned due ...
