Re: Figuring out my new Tau Scheme

I don't know why, but Necron was my first association.
But you are a talented painter; keep going! I'm interested what you would do to a crisis :D

Re: Keep order for the greater Good

I use the screw and dowel box from that blue-yellow swedish furnite seller. White case, transparent cover, orange inlay (that's my army's colour scheme :D) and 9 compartments. 5€ per Box (includes screws and dowels). But for my bits at home I use this . Sorry for it being in german, but the pictures...

I love the posing of your suits. They look so heroic and like they don't give a ... at once. And so natural. Great job on modelling.

Re: Hypothetical Tau Jetbike Tactical Role

Remember we are not talking about, what we want. We discuss what role a Jetbike would fill if the Earth Caste would deliver some to the Fire Caste. I once wrote I disagree with the Dragoons idea. Well, my mistake; I was thinking about sabre whirling cavalry, not Riflemen on horses. So yes, Dragoons ...

Re: Tau Battlesuit Neural Interface - how does it work?

Has anyone played Titanfall? The Titans are able to act autonomously but only use their full potential manned by a skilled pilot. The Earth Caste is pretty brilliant with writing AIs. What if Tau Suits (XV-8 upwards) work the same way and are not controlled by thoughts but by active controlling via ...

Re: Hypothetical Tau Jetbike Tactical Role

Often said: What a Jetbike could do, Drones already do. But what can't a Drone do? - Complex tactics. I remembered the fluff for the Sniper Drones; the Marksman already died days ago but the the Sniper Drones still held their ground killing enemies in LoS. Maybe something like a Interceptor Drone Sw...

Re: Suits vs tanks

Take at least one vehicle so your enemy has to take something against it and potentially lowering his army's strength. (At first I didnt want any vehicles and my Blood Angel friend filled his table with anti-infantry melee units. Then I got my Razorshark and a few Devilfishes. Well, the next few bat...

Re: [Need Advice] XV88 shoulder mounted High-Yield Missile Pods

Nah, I thought more about mounting the HYMPs like the H-Railrifles were once one the old Braodsides . Then both hands would be free for eg. a TL-Plasmarifle on one arm and some kind of supportsystem in the other hand. (I once saw a conversion where a XV88 put his HRR on stand and had a blue-ish disp...

[Need Advice] XV88 shoulder mounted High-Yield Missile Pods

Hello, (is there any better way to start a Thread?) I love the XV88's design by wielding a heavy Railrifle and unleashing Hell on enemies while having a TL-Plasmarifle mounted on the shoulder which is overwatching for enemies who get to close. Like an autonomous Plasma Caster Predators from Alien vs...

Re: Cadre Anonymous

Oh yeah, white and black with orange accents! Since I played Titanfall I started to love that colour scheme and wanted to use it on my own models. But I'm not experienced enough to paint anything without a coloring guide which tells me what colors to use. I love it. But there's just one thing that b...

Re: Tau Drone stands.... what height is best?

We also had a 'discussion' about the units. I always like the idea of having 12 Strikers: 6 standing and 6 kneeling for the main purpose of simulating a red-coat firing line. And that would be same problem with the drones. Sometimes I got base-stands which are pretty short because they are mainly fo...

Wait, I thought it also gives all Drones on the table +1BS and formation's drones intercept, split fire, precision shots and outflank.

Re: Deployed space marine drop pod ramps

We houseruled it this way:

The Pod comes down with its doors closed (for measuring etc.)
As it lands it tries to open the doors/ramps/hatches. If they cant be opened because of reasons (models, terrain, table border, ...) you cant use the particular hatch to deploy the unit.
