Re: XV8 Flamer Discussion

option three? All flamers. Then other weapons on separate suits in the same unit. I got a feeling there may be a mid to late game where flamers might lose some of their value after appropriate targets are dead or got out of dodge. Might be worth while to take the cheeper flamer suits as first casual...

Re: Cadre Fireblades: Our true Markerlights

Move and fire? Heavy weapons can move and fire but are harder to hit I think being on any tidewall thats moving still counts as moving now. I also love the old pictures of crisis and pirhanna on the ports but it clearly says only infantry :neutral: Also i read somewhere about putting the tidewall st...

Re: Cadre Fireblades: Our true Markerlights

Spread em out. Makes em harder to kill. Like panzer said" Anything to anoy the enemy" Seekers. one thing the markerlights got a buff in. What platform though. The devilfish you might already be taking. Maybe longshot and friends. Not seeing much love for the Pirhanna. With needing volume A...

Re: Cadre Fireblades: Our true Markerlights

Droneport for the 8-10 pathfinders? Place the drones behind the droneport. So they only have line of sight to a low amount of targets this turn. They will be less likely targeted? I really want to find a way to make some part of the Tidewalls usefull. And honestly pathfinders is one of the best scen...

Re: My battleplan...

Hammer and anvil requires the enemy to be somewhat in between. With kroot and breachers advancing, are they really the anvil? Your force will definitely benifit from fusions on shadowsun or your crisis. If you are landing a first turn charge with Kroot (idk the math if they can) then great. If not, ...

Re: The MantaCore

Panzer/others. What is your opinion of using stealth suits (supported) as the screening force to recieve charges when moving second or doing gunlines. I feel they will do a good job of it (on paper) but will it be a good enough job when considering not using things like infiltrate to its fullest or ...

Re: RIP riptide

I know this sounds silly. But i got a feeling we are doing it backwards. Another thread talked about putting drones in a devilfish. The idea being clear Weve seen the numbers, n drones r king. People keep saying here or there to hide the drones in behind units. Stealths. Ghosts , cover. The riptide ...

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

disposable isnt so much as good as distracting. N though perhaps im not right about fluff But dirrscting sounds more tau than disposable. Disposable you do not care that it dies Distracing you care that its getting attention. Both a single fusion suit or a coldstar can be distracting. To be fairly f...

Re: 8th Ed Alpha Strike (Or, Why Crisis Suits are Expensive)

I havnt played so don't know but i read someone elses idea in the coldstar up in coming thread. Charge with coldstars. Not at everything. Just maybe a tank in the back or heavy weapons teams from races that we can survive a round or two. We cant kill tanks as easily (one turn) i hear. But if we clea...

Re: Mech Tau in 8th edition

In this hyper mobile environment i see my tau moving when i play. yes i see troops in devilfish bringing guys to the front But i also see them taking the hits on a flank of my mobile force perhaps near the centre of the board as most my army hits one of the oppenents corners. Then breachers react to...

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

I read a lot of pages here at tactiva. Even the 170+ one with the mostly negative reactions to 8th list. Then i read this thread and felt pumped and promptly went out n got two comanders. I needed them anyways on account i had zero. i plan to magnatize them but its my hope to use them as Coldstars A...

Re: 8th edition Stealthsuits

I was thinking put a dc on a fusion. The rest gets target locks. I infiltrate i move. I advance hopefully real nice and close like and deepstrike behind their front line with flamers and farsight. Or Move darkstrider with pathfinders To be behind the stealths. Maybe flank darkstrider with a side of ...
