Re: "They Shall Follow No Rules", so how do you beat them?

Yes, those are their strengths.

Their weaknesses? 3 shots at BS 3 means you're getting 1 or 2 hits, and thus 1 or 2 wounds (assuming the marines aren't in cover). That "easy" pin requires the SM...

Re: What do you want to see in the next codex?

Blightedmarsh: Go ahead, the idea is there to be stealed.

Merqu & Shasocastris: In theory, the Krak would stand as the longest range gun (now with IC insta-killing power in every shot!) in the...

Re: Blood Angels

Kroot hounds are cheaper, which would help efficiency, but yes, screening against blood hounds would require something that could survive 1 (but only 1 - we DO want to shoot on our turn) round by...

Re: Blood Angels

To be fair, to actually get the melta effect from the infernus pistol requires pinpoint accuracy that not even Blood Angels can rely on, or at least a turn on the table available for...

Re: What do you want to see in the next codex?

I've stopped considering the TODex as vision of the 5th edition "update" to the Tau: Empire Codex, and more a "Tau reimagined from the ground up" work by dedicated fans.

This is a thread defined...

Re: What do you want to see in the next codex?

I thought the rumors were that crisis suits were being redone at some point in the near future? Or was that just the legs, or something?

Re: What do you want to see in the next codex?

Is MFM slang for something I'm not aware of? :huh:

Variable Fire System (VFS) works fine with me, though. Whatever works.

Edit: Ahhhhh, I found the aforementioned abbreviation. VFS it is, I...

Re: What do you want to see in the next codex?

I was under the assumption that only the Crisis Suits would be getting a Multiple Firing Mode (MFM) weapon.

However, I could see Commanders getting access to "Advanced" versions of the MFMs. These...

Re: FoC for 40K: What 'should' it be

Thanks for the clarification, Khanaris. That seems reasonable.

Re: What do you want to see in the next codex?

VRTs give Hit and Run as normal.

Crisis Suits in the TODex have "Vectored Thrusters" which gives it a 6" move in the assault phase, "exactly as if it were equipped with a Jet Pack".

So yes,...

Re: Tau titan? Sure, why not.

Out of curiosity, how tall is the SAW? How long are the legs, and how large is the torso/head? How does it relate, size-wise, to a hammerhead? I'd like better context than a...

Re: Shas'O Oren'Ka (To Strike with Courage)

There are a few alternatives...

You could give him a unique weapon that takes up both hands, something like a 24" Heavy 6 Str 5 AP 5 Rending, perhaps? Give him a Shield Generator for protection,...

Re: Militaristic "Ranks" of the 40k races

If memory serves, Tau ranks are roughly the following:

X'Y, where X is the caste and Y is the rank.

'saal -> 'la -> 'ui -> 'vre -> 'el -> 'o

As the Fire Caste does most of the fighting for...

Much like the "Unlimited range weapons should be treated as 72 inches" Apoc standard, "Only 1 of each unique character" is another suggested House Rule.

In other words, GW did what it does best......
