Re: Modelling the 4x Fusion Blaster Commander

There are bits available in the nee crisis box, the broadside box and the riptide kit that are great for twin-linking an underslung weapon. That's likely what I'll do. And it's easy to magnetize.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Edit : Oh and, for what it's worth, the GW commentator is really trying to sell the idea the T'au are "the new Guard", heavily promoting clustered static gunlines of strike teams supported by a Fireblade, an Ethereal and maybe a Stormsurge behind them. I'm sincerely not convinced this is ...

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

I really think a strong go to will be a squad of stealth suits with homing beacon deep striking @ 9+ so you can drop multiple crisis+drone squads within 8 to take advantage of flamers.

Had anyone run numbers on 2xflamer+ATS yet?

You do not have to attack the unit you charged but only on the phase you decale the charge .... Charge Phase 1 - chose the your unit you want to fight with 2 - pile in 3 - pick target units; "First you musth pick the target unit, or units for the attacks. To target an enemy unit, the attacking...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Let me preface my response with this: I am a FSE player so this tactic is primarily with crisis suits in mind. I prefer to play aggressively and since assault is an inevitability, I say why not bring the fight to them. Let's not be afraid to get right in their face with this. On to the tactic. My or...

Re: The run to 8th edition

It's relevant because we can use our movement to setup open ended killboxes that will force assaulting units to leave models in limbo thus negating their attacks.

Re: The run to 8th edition

For instance, if an enemy must stay 1" away from other models they are not charging, Couldn't you position yourself in a certain way to reduce being swamped by melee? I would think there is some kind of tactical formation you could employ that would greatly reduce how many models actually can ...

Please link 8th edition video battle reports here

Hey ATT folks, I'm starting this thread as a place we can link video battle reports as we create or find them. I'll try and stay on top of copying each link into this post.

Re: Rising Star: Cold Star Commander In 8th Edition

The key is that it takes a good number of shots at high accuracy or a LOT of shots at medium/low accuracy AND not having to replace a weapon slot to obtain ATS. Fortunately (and unfurtunately, respectively), the Coldstar fits both criteria. Slots are quite precious these days, and the only one I do...

Re: The run to 8th edition

That's hardly an average army anymore. Broadsides, Riptides and Crisis all in one list is insanely expensive. You're going to need more regular infantry in 8th. A shame for me since crisis suits were my regular infantry. I really don't care for our tanks and fire warriors much at all. I guess I'll ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

We FSE will just have to run a bunch of commanders in the spirit of the 8! That is still pretty fluffy even if we will rarely win a game. If you think you rarely win a game with the replacement method....why do that at all? If you want to be fluffy just keep using Crisis units. :D Actually, I know ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Ok so @Anon, I'm going to weigh in on the crisis vs commanders debate because it's near and dear to my heart. It seems the Tau I play, and the Tau you play are vastly different Tau. I am a farsight enclaves player to the core. I own exactly one squad of fire warriors (Breachers), one ethereal, one d...

Re: Fusion blades: Do they exist???

If you actually read the wargear description, a fusion blade is just an experimental modification made to a twin-linked fusion blaster so that it emits a short blade like beam continuously during melee. That's why it shorts out your blasters on a roll of one. It is not a separate sword. Only Farsigh...

Re: Are Burst cannons useful anymore???

Not if the profile is still similar to Pulse Rifles in 8th. They're are some of us that do not use pulse rifles. Myself for example. I own one squad of fire warriors and they're a breacher team. The rest of my models are either battle suits or drones. This is because I hate static gunlines and pref...

Re: Are Burst cannons useful anymore???

Some new information about Assault weapons makes me very hopeful about suit mounted burst cannons. According to recent leaked shooting rules, assault weapons can now move, advance, and shoot. I have a feeling that double burst + flamer suits are going to be amazing. Just a silly amount of firepower.
