Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

That all said I want to expand and say I am not unkeen to the idea of drone tanks and an expansion on drones in general. Drones in the general culture are pretty popular, and I'd like to see the option to take an army that consists mostly of drones. Gun drone spam was a passtime in Dawn of War DC. I...

gloss/glazes

What is peoples advice on Ardcoat and things with Tau. I haven't used anything yet but wasn't sure anyone had experience using it, like just on lenses or on whole battlesuits and stuff.

Re: New 8th FAQ

Core rules page 10: The Death Guard player selects the unit of plague marines to shoot with. the plague marines will shoot with their boltguns, while the plague champion will throw a krak grenade. The targets are 6" away, which is within range of the plauge marines' boltguns. These are Rapid F...

Re: New 8th FAQ

Yeah but that could also be for brevity: rather than saying "pulse rifles become rapid fire 2, pulse carbines become assault 3, and pistols become pistol 2, when firing at half range"

Re: New 8th FAQ

Number of Attacks Each time a model shoots a ranged weapon, it will make a number of attacks. You roll one dice for each attack being made. The number of attacks a model can make with a weapon, and therefore the number of dice you can roll, is found on the weapon’s profile, along with the weapon’s ...

Re: New 8th FAQ

I figure it makes plenty of sense given how much extra dice are being thrown around in the meta.

As long as you have the fly keyword you can punch other stuff in the sky.

Re: New 8th FAQ

RAI would be completely otherwise. If the intend was, that Longstrike keeps his 2+ BS even if he moved, he would get a special rule especially for that, like Markerdrone for example. The rule says "...other friendly ...". Other is the important part here. The Rule is Longstrikes equivalen...

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

I've been thinking about Remora drones and their assault-blocking capabilities (vs units without Fly ) a lot lately. It's a cute 'pocket combo' for the Coldstar but even inexpensive as they are the price is a little too high to set up a shell game with multiple units swapping places to maintain a s...

Re: New 8th FAQ

Glad im not the only one thinking like this.

Do they use "Shots" and "Attacks" in a consistent way in the FAQ?

Re: High potential understrengths?

Yeah people would suddenly be forgetting they owned the drones that came with all these kits (piranhas, without drones, just cheap flying FBs) it would start to get pretty ridic. I'd expect most people to use common sense with this. Same time I'd like the battle report :)

Re: New 8th FAQ

Another odd one: how many extra total shots does the fireblade give to FWs? I'm kinda reading it as 4 shots total at close range for a pulse rifle. ie. Rapid Fire 1 becomes Rapid Fire 2, Assault 2 becomes Assault 3, etc.

That reads as

2 Tactical

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Jacket, I'm not sure what the personal offense is in saying things like Forgeworld would be the likely source of a superheavy t'au tank, among other simple observations. So, kindly attack the argument, not me. GW's style of business is not hard to decode, and they not create a new kit that will cann...
