Re: 8th edition

Well, if AP 2 equivalent will still negate all armour saves, it would be. -5. AP 3 then is -4. AP 4 is -3, AP 5 is -2 and AP 6 -1. But it could just as easily be AP - and 6 are 0, AP 5 is -1, AP 4 is -2, AP 3 is -3 and so on. Yah, simply put thats the direct translation. But on a deeper ground it w...

Re: 8th edition

Well I hope they don't do a reboot of 2nd ed. With kids of my own, I don't have time for a 6 hour battle :D Simplified rules of 2nd ed mixed in with AoS/7th ed WH40k would be nice. Armour saves on terminators is something I am interested in how they solve, if they are looking at modification system....

Re: 8th edition

I played 2nd edition. It was a far more fun game, but it had a huge drawback. It took forever to complete a game. There were tables for everything. It basically was a role-playing game with miniatures on a larger scale. Terminator saves were 3+... on 2D6. That means you rolled to save for each termi...

Re: XV8 Crisis Loadouts for a starting player

Well Crisis suits in many armies fill the void of missing elements of your army. Gone to heavy on anti tank, then go for anti infantry weapons. Not enough anti 3+/2+ anti infantry, go for the plasma etc etc. If you on the other hand play a Farsight army, and focusing on Crisis, then you need to fill...

Re: Farsight Enclaves vs Grey Knights 2000 pts

Give it a try mate. Final Cut pro is easy to use if you know how to use iMovie. Concerning the Tau "hitting hard and hard to catch". I guess the casual gamers I have a chance to battle are not used to the dodgy tactics the Tau can muster. And my old friends (gaming 22 or more years now) ar...

New update? Interesting. Can you direct me to the book/FAQ/Errata so I can see this my self :D
Not mistrusting you on this, just need it as proof for my opponents.

Re: 1850 - Competitive Tau

I think with a Farsight Enclave you need to use the Farsight Signature systems over the Tau Empire normal one. So no Iridium armour or Puretide engram. For the Crisis suits. If your just going to use them as objective grabbers, I would go for a more secure weapon. Missile pod has better range and se...

Re: Farsight Enclaves vs Grey Knights 2000 pts

Thanks. Great to heat that my fellow Tau players enjoy. I'll keep them coming as I get game going. Its pretty hard with this list though. Most players are not used to this kind of list. It hits fairly hard and is hard to catch. So its not always fun for my opponents to play against it. I'll see if I...

Farsight Enclaves vs Grey Knights 2000 pts

Hello fellow warriors, Been a long time since I was active here. Moved abroad, got new job, moved again, etc etc. But in between I have been gaming of course. Last time I used my Tau actively was one year ago in Germany. When I came home to Sweden, I shelved them as other armies had to come out and ...

Re: Top Tier Terror

Tau is one of the strongest codexes out there. Taus play style is very unique and hard for most opponents in friendly games to counter. 1. Weak scoring units Now this makes me wonder... how many units of fire warriors do you field? And what other aspects do you have in your army that draws the enemi...

Re: Hotknife - Efficient Crisis Loadout?

@Vash - why make one of your Hotknife suits a 'vre? Recon. To accept challenges I cannot win with my commanders. Its just a backup if I would get charged by someone who outsmarts me :D It has happened two times that I had need of it. Before 7th edition, it was also to ensure that my commanders did ...

Re: Hotknife - Efficient Crisis Loadout?

Today I don't leave home without my "hot knife" setup. As you say your self, Farsight is crucial for it to work. First let me give you my unit setup: 1 Farsight, as he comes 1 Commander with, TL-fusion blaster, plasma rifle, target lock, fusion blades 1 Shas'vre with two flamers, and plas...

Re: Finally! A use for vespids!

I will add a 7th edition data point if I may. I was going to play a Maelstrom mission with a "lets use all the terrain we have" table full of interesting upper levels and LOS blocking pieces so I decided to add some Vespid into my list for the first time in a while. A group of 5 vespid pr...

Re: Vash's Astra Militarum/Militarum Tempestus paint log

Thanks. Well I was like you too Nevar. I really wanted ot buy the Tempestus Scions, but I couldn't bare my self to use them with that medieval breastplate. It suits some armies, such as Vostroyans, and perhaps Death Korps of Krieg, but not for the type of army I want to field and usually face. So so...
