Re: Tau bland in 8th?

For what it's worth, I think T'au are boring AF. 8th Edition is my first time playing 40k, and I already want a different army. Don't get me wrong, the T'au have great models and a wonderful concept. But, I felt like I wasn't really doing anything during a game. It came down to what the faction does...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

No no, I meant that you only considered Fusion Commanders in your Homing Beacon scenarios, and I was asking about other types of commanders interactions as well.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

So the Homing Beacon overrides other restrictions on Manta Strikes? I did not interpret it that way at all.

What about for Coldstar builds?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Can you help me get my head around how a Homing Beacon works? I can't seem to envision situations where it is useful, yet people say it is.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I would love something - anything - to do in the Psychic phase. A relic that gives a flat 5 Deny the Witch roll? -1 to your opponent's roll? My feelings about the Melee phase are similiar, same with JSJ style gameplay. It puts me off to effectively skip so many phases in a turn.

Can you post a primary source for the T'au warp presense?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

T'au don't have a warp presence. Neither do the Sisters of Silence. The Sisters have some anti-psychic rules, and we get to stand there and get bonked. Why?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

If that's the case, then why do Stealth Suits only come with one?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

So the Ghostkeel came today. I noticed it has 2 Stealth Drones. Is that so that if one gets killed there's a spare? Or is their bonus cumulative?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Thanks, you always help me out, and with 0% rotten attitude. Like, of course I didn't think that you could load a commander up with 4x giant pew pew like Broadsides carry. Just needed help finding that table I skipped over every single time I opened the index. Next: how many points is the Puretide C...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Flipping through the Index last night, I noticed it says that Commanders can takr any weapon from the Ranged Weapons list, which includes Rail Rifles from Pathfinder teams and a slew of other options. Am I reading that right? Those options don't show up in Battlescribe. Ranged weapon list is on pag...

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

This thread is great. I’m in a similar boat where my friends and I are starting with 500 points as the break point to start playing. To the Op: I noticed you switched from Coldstar to 4x Fusion. How did you feel like the new setup worked out for you? Wow, I missed the notice that this thread was li...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

There's a comment on the WHTV Facebook post about the 11 armies getting new things which says T'au get "a new strategem, and some new army-rules."

No mention of warlord traits or relics or points reductions.

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Hey party people, can we talk a bit about the pros and cons of Fire Warrior Strike Teams swapping their rifles for Pulse Carbines? They're the same guns Pathfinders get, right?

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Why is there no bit in Xenos 2 under Commander that talks about drones dropping off so to speak? Am I just missing it? Is it based on a different rule somewhere? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

Edit:
...oops, it's in the Errata/FAQ

Thank you just the same

Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

I'm confused about how drones work when they're taken with a Commander.

All other units (Pathfinders, Stealth Suits, etc) have the drones set up with the unit and then become their own.

So if someone shoots at a Commander and 2 drones, which stats am I using? It's all one unit right?

Re: 750pt New Player League

I'm not super concerned with winning. This is a league for novice players to muck about. I want to try stuff that appeals to me, but not have a total doo-doo list. To be clear, I'll run all the drones I happen to own, but I'm not buying any loose or getting kits just for drones. Although, if Crisis ...
