Re: Competitive Tau

Good tier list.

I'd put hammerheads to mediocre tier (esp. if assisted by longstrike)
Strike Teams are competitive though, don't know what you are doing wrong :D

Re: Ghostkeel Battlesuit Paint SBS

I like it very much!
Great video, too.

I'm stuck with acrylics, so I have a question.
Is the t's-7 racing white you used like an off white (say from Vallejo)?

Screening units discussion

Thought I'd branch this from the FAQ topic, since it's quite an interesting discussion. Current list of screening units Drones: 8ppm, high damage output, relatively durable (for a screening unit) , fly, are bodyguards for Infantry and Battlesuits . Pathfinders: 8ppm, decent damage output, average du...

Re: New 8th FAQ

Today I learned 6*2≅8 :D

Seriously:
If you want a cheap screen, take kroot hounds.
If you want a more durable screen, take drones/strike teams.
If you absolutely need the scout move, take pathfinders, who cares what their purpose is, or kroot, both will do their job

Re: What's the best support systems for a stormsurge?

Correct, only characters can take traits.

ATS and Shield are a given, take EWO, Stims or VT as third system

Re: Dark Hopes 8th edition guide to competitive battle strategy

You did an awful lot of work here, but I think your unit analysis is off.
Also there seem to be some misread rules.
Would not call it 'competitive' for now.
Will read again and further elaborate when I have access to a physical keyboard ;)

Early Warning Override vs da jump

EWO allows shooting a unit that was set up "as the result of an ability that allows them to arrive mid-battle (i.e. teleporting to the battlefield)" Da jump allows to "remove this unit from the battlefield and then set it up anywhere..." Q: Does EWO allow me to shoot the jumped u...

Re: How to paint panel lines?

I use flory model washes, especially for tanks.
Paint Base Colors, use semigloss varnish, soak miniature in wash, wipe off ecxess. Proceed to highlighting.

Re: T'au unit efficiency analysis

Interesting approach, reminds me of Battletech Battlevalue (good old times) There seems to be an error with the Stealth FB though, avg W and avg D should not be the same, see FB commander. You seem to use factor 4 for Fusion Wounds to Damage, so the Stealth FB should be 4 times better. Note that you...

Re: Pathfinders: Ion Rifles or Rail Rifles (or none)

Looking at the mathhammer tables, the Ion Rifle can be pointed at everything short of maybe Sv2+. The range is what makes it work and it's cheap. The Rail Rifle is good, too, but it makes a flimsy model really expensive and needs the rapid fire range to shine. I would only put one in a large squad. ...

Re: High potential understrengths?

Bring Crisis Teams with Gun Drones but without Crisis.
Now Manta deploy gun drones.
Profit.

Also the first army where the dice needed to play are more expensive than the models.
