Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

So I was looking more closely at the Orca Dropship, as I fully intend to field a "Whale of Wrath" force. I am planning to call mine an Orca Pod. But yeah, totally looking to do the same. :eek: 56 Remoras. 5 Cadre Fireblades. 1 Orca. 5 Markerlights. 456 36" pulse shots. 112 Seekers. 3...

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

Except we have the first "new IA" book coming up already known as Tau vs Admech (fires of cyrax? something along those lines)
So, we are getting our FW updated really soon.
Hopefully not too soon, so they'll actually fix the lousy index.

Re: Conscripts...

Riptide with Heavy Burst Cannon. T7 means he is wounding on 6+ and you are saving on 2+. Equip Stim Injectors and make the Riptide your Warlord so you get two 6+ ignore wound abilities. Keep drones nearby and hidden out of LOS to absorb lascannons. Coldstar Commander is quite good at killing conscr...

Yes, he did.

Considering its a built-in feature of the XV9, and he IS in an XV9, it should be there.

Re: Forge World tau Index FAQ help

Also probably an omission, Ralai's pulse submunnition rifle does not have a the actual pulse submmunition profile, nor does he have the XV9's photon casters Some oddties: Remora may or may not have target locks who may or may not be included in the cost XV9s may or may not pay for their "suppor...

Just one more in a long list of issues with the FW index. Rymr's "upgraded shield generator" is exactly like a regular one R'alai experimental pulse subbmunition rifle lacks pulse submmunition proflie, ralai lacks xv9's photon casters, blacklight marker drones cost more for no reason what-...

Re: Tau 8th ed. mathammer tables

Well darn, expected more from DC.

Guess it's ATS all the way. As it should be superior againt the (common as hell) marine, and gives better results against the emergency heavy target.
Ain't many things lighter than a necron warrior out there.

Re: Tau 8th ed. mathammer tables

Question is, do you get more value from the DC, or from an ATS?
Need to run the numbers, but I suspect more often than not, the DC, while the drone are alive at least. They'll die quickly.

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

Forge org slots are not a trouble when one of our prime units is an HQ anyway. Speaking of HQ, I'm wondering if Ralai is viable... Sure, he is burdened with two marker drones who cost more for no apparent reason, and can't move and shoot "properly"?! (seriously, wtf?) But he he's as durabl...

From the little I've seen so far, it's a poor Dewey case.

Re: 8th Ed FORGEWORLD Tau

Sounds intresting...

Considering I have Ralai and Tetras, I've slightly torn here between happy and sad I guess?

Gotta find myself where I can take a look at the slates.

Judging by the way ethreals and drakstrider are worded, I'd reckon its only models within 6", not their units.

Re: 8th edition crisis suits

Well, only crisis/commander actually make that choice.

Everyone else pick a system.

And the VT is cheap enough that in a fly-heavy meta, it just clicks.
Even if said "fly" units are mere skimmers, jump pack and the likes.

Best thing you can do to still have fun? Always have two factions. If playing a faction is no longer fun for you, switch to another one.

Re: XV88 Broadsides in 8th ?

The real example of what's good will be made clear with the first major tournament using 8th edition rules. I bet dollarydoos that mass Commander suits will not be a thing. I don't expect mass commander sits to be a thing. The problem is, I don't expect anything tau AT ALL to be a thing in any high...
