Re: Demon counter list 2000pts

I like this idea, but, I think you're missing drones in a lot of places. … reducing the Hounds to just a few min-sized groups to block deep strikes? What do you think? I was thinking about that as well. But I decided since most games are decided by turn 2 or 3, just play the trading game. But using...

Demon counter list 2000pts

Ok, so with the new demon book out the meta seems like it's going to change quite a bit. I modified this list from another I had to include a stormsurge with early warning override. I'll explain set up after the list. 3 detachments: battalion, outrider, super heavy auxiliary … 7 command points 1982 ...

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: Ions and Re-Roll 1's

My point here is not so much about cost effectiveness per shot (that was covered earlier), but tactical flexibility and efficiency of situation. Totally agree. Even though the QFC and DroneFishBlade are proven in this edition, they are getting well known. And are being dealt with accordingly. When ...

Re: molding with bluestuff pt. 1, drones

I started doing the same, not bluestuff but a different brand. The high detail areas I had trouble with I had to experiment to get crisper detail. The water I used was a bit hotter and I left it in a bit longer than reccomended. It was almost like molasses when I took it out. I also used a lot more ...

AVP minis

So I was browsing online to see what I might use instead of kroot hounds. I looked on this board as well of course. I found these: http://shop.prodosgames.com/alien-vs-predator/193-avp-predator-hellhounds.html I couldn't find any mention of them yet here. So I thought i'd post up. They don't seem to...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

Being able to decide on Crisis weaponloadouts during deployment would be way too powerful. We could tailor our list perfectly to deal with any kind of army without any drawback while others would have to take all-comers lists. Tank heavy? Go all Fusion Blaster. Horde? Go all Flamer. Elite Infantry?...

Re: Throwing out the mold: the merits of despecialization in crisis teams

That's the reason Crisis suits are best when specialized. It's because WEAPONS are specialized. Zadocfish is right. To go back to the original statement, "why not take advantage of the unit design attributes?" (despecialization) As stated by many others: the unit may be designed for flexi...

multi-tracker in charge phase

I searched the tau tactics thread but didn't see anything refering to 8th edition rules reagrding multi-trackers in the charge phase. I'm not mistaken that units with a multi tracker get to re-roll ones on their overwatch, right? While modifiers can never change the target number to anything other t...

Re: Y'vahra or not?

Are you really thinking about a double Stormsurge list? Not seriously, but this is turning into a serious modeling project as well. Who knows… It could, but think about it this way- with a Y'vahra list, your goal will be to have lots of Shield Drones flying around the table, acting as mobile "...

Re: Reprice the Tau

I'm fairly sure this post is a breach of one of the guidelines for the site. Never, ever list individual point values for anything. Listing the sum total of points for a squad is OK, but no item-by-item points breakdowns are ever allowed. ATT has zero tolerance for listing individual point values. ...

So, seeing a lot of similar threads but with less focus I thought I'd start a thread where we could focus it all in one place and make it easy to read. Just post what we thought needed to be changed. *note please do not list actual points. just what you'd like to see. also no math alluding to the ac...

Re: Tau Power level abuse 100PL

It does seem you need two lists, one for each system. It's like they had different teams working on each. And the teams assigned to Tau both did a crap job.

Re: Y'vahra or not?

Once you build a defensive list around a Stormsurge, suddenly it feels... less fun, in a way? The Y'vahra list is of course riskier to play though. What do you think? Yeah, I've played the gunline for a long time. I want to mix it up a bit. The idea of two stormsurges as an anchor point is fun, but...

Re: Y'vahra or not?

For me he has ALWAYS survived even though he has been on his last leg numerous times by turn 4-5. I'm going to assume you equip the shield generator on your stormsurge. If you take a shield generator on the y'vahra and shield drone squadron to escort, it is very survivable (by the numbers). But slo...
