Re: KV-128 Stormsurge Ballistic Suit Discussion

I think they are double the points of a basic Riptide each, from what I can see. I like the idea of these but the 3+ save scares me, as it may be indicative of a nerf to the Riptide when the new codex comes out. With regards weapons systems, I like the idea of the Destroyer Missile, but don't call i...

Re: First Army List (800pts)

I think you've under costed your FWs by 4 points per team. Otherwise, I love the list! Very different from the usual stuff I like to play!

Re: Funny I know... but sell me on Broadsides...

I tend to run mine with a Mark'O Buffmander (iridium, shield gen, drone controller, stims, puretide, MSSS, and neuroweb) and 6 marker drones. 3 suits all with HYMP, SMS, and TLs, with the Mark'O out front at T5, 4++ and FNP tanking wounds, then the drones and then the suits. I tend to LOS anything t...

Re: 2500pts. Pure Suits Help Needed!

I find your list interesting, as I run something similar. It is great for mobile scoring but S8 weapons can put a crimp in your day. I like the mix of suits but I would change the Fusion suits to one fusion x2 and a flamer and the other two to being fusion x2 and a target lock. I run 2 teams of thre...

Re: Enclaves Special Weapons Cadre [1850 League list]

I would be tempted to change the EWO on the Fusion monads to Flamers, as it makes them super efficient against the mobs inside the tanks you have just destroyed. And it's still at least one guaranteed hit when the monads are charged. I always run mine with 2x fusion and a flamer !

Re: New recruit to the Greater Good seeks Cadre advice

I run similar sized troop options and I usually place my objectives at the 6-8 inch mark of my board edge and place at least one of my troop choices in reserve, to walk on later in the game and claim it. If I am playing someone with drop pods, or the mission has extra points for something like Fast ...

Re: [1500] All-Comers Mini-Tournie List

Hi Coffee! It's an interesting list and I am working on something similar for an escalation league at the beginning of the year. My only question is regarding the 10 man Firewarrior squad - would they be better served as a 12 Kroot pack with a Kroot hound for infiltration and harassment team? They a...

Re: 1850 new comer tau goodness

Is there any way of getting one more Kroot into each of those squads? The reason I ask is, at 16 figures, they will run if 4 are killed, but at 17, it takes 5 deaths to make them run. It's not a lot of difference, but if you can find a few points, that might make the difference between scoring and n...

Re: 1850 Farsight Enclave Auto-Sniper

Battlesuits can take any number of Signature Systems, they don't use hardpoints. That's why your buffmander can have a flamer, a stims injector, a shield generator, a drone controller, a MSSS, an CNC and a Puretide Chip and all the other goodies. Riptides are the same.

Re: Escalation and Stronghold Assault

I have been having a think and I reckon that our new super-heavy killer might be the XV-107 R'Varna - with all the extra hits from the pieplates, it should be able to take down one every 2 turns, provided that it roles well. That said, it still dies horribly to D-weapons, but then, what doesn't? Doe...

Re: For the Greater Good: Firebase Support Cadre Sharing

Don't forget, I still want 3 Broadsides! At £18 each, I am happy to go collect it from Dark Sphere and ship it down to you, as I am only 2 tube stops from Dark Sphere and Lexi is a mate of mine!

No, none at all. Just as Vay said, it is written like a Tactica article, rather than a GW piece.

Re: Tactica: XV104 Riptides (Ipad Version) - Review

Yes, I have to agree. It was just a reiteration of the thoughts of the internet in general regarding the Riptide. It was an interesting diversion and worth a read for those just learning how to play Tau or looking for ways to beat a Riptide. There is a rules error however. When discussing the Counte...

Re: Firebase Support Cadre - Our new 40k Formation

To quote myself from the other thread: It would appear from other sites that the world is now falling, due to the new rules regarding formations. I have run up the numbers for 3x Railsides with Skyfire, 3x Missilesides with EWO and a Riptide with SKyfire/EWO and its 675 points. Thinking about it, ma...
