Re: [ATT Recommended] 500pt list help

Thanks that really takes the edge off. I can get the Start Collecting box set and then just pick up big battlesuits as I feel like building them. I swear I read that Broadsides with missiles, and all the other battlesuits, were really good. What's a good model for Longstrike? Or should I just conver...

Re: 500pt list help

Yep! I'm already thinking about what to get next. And of course I'm going to worry about my 500pt list because it's the whole point of this thread.

Ok so speaking of increased army size, are single Broadsides even viable? Or should I just get a Ghostkeel until I can buy 3 missilesides?

Re: 500pt list help

How do the new FAQs impact army building, especially the new Drone rules? (Not-so-disgusting but still resiliant)

Re: 500pt list help

It's the week 2 list subbing quad fusion commander for coldstar, and putting the 2pts onto the anti-flying tech for a stealth unit.

Re: 500pt list help

Is quad fusion good enough for me to ditch my Ion Rifles? I already took the fusion cannon off a stealth suit to afford the new commander.

Re: 500pt list help

Victory! All the advice about deployment and charging really paid off. I was up against the Skitarii Start Collecting box set and I went second and still won. Rolling markerlights one at a time was a game changer, as was marking multiple units. Coldstar's mobility was awesome, but she was kind of in...

Re: 500pt list help

How soft am I to flying units, or should I not even worry?

Good luck.


For real? You don't think the 2 Ion Rifles, Fusion Cannon and Missiles are enough at 500pts?

Re: 500pt list help

I don't have any melee people anyway, so this is sort of a thought exercise.

Speaking of, are there any Tau units that fight better than schoolchildren with rulers?

Re: 500pt list help

Gotcha. I keep forgetting you can shoot AND charge. This game is hard.

Re: 500pt list help

I should clarify - I'm confused about "sacrifice kroot to keep fire warriors" bit. Won't the fire warriors just stand around?

Re: 500pt list help

But if my people are tying up a unit, doesn't that mean I can't shoot at it? I guess I don't understand how that's helpful with so many gun lines.

Re: 500pt list help

Is there a benefit to being behind a unit/does model facing matter? What constitutes tying up a unit?

Re: 500pt list help

I totally hadn't considered adding 3in to Rapid Fire. That seems awesome.

I mostly play against my friend's Orks, and they charge me like crazy. Like I can't even believe the distance they cover.

Re: 500pt list help

I guess I'm having trouble imaginging scenarios where the increased range or the lessend charge distance are relevant. Do they ever matter in-game?

Re: 500pt list help

That makes a lot of sense. The part about extra wounds and durability was definitely something I hadn't considered. I really appreciate your math and statistics too.

What does anti-elite mean? How do we feel about weird drones like Pulse Accel and Grav (or even Guardian and Marker for that matter)?
