Re: I just ordered 6 blisters of Kroot hounds... am I nuts?

You're not nuts, my current list incarnation uses 3 units of Kroot. I use 2 small 10 man units for flanking and holding far off objectives. They sit in cover and shoot and are only 70 points for each...

Re: Anti-Whirlwind Tactica?

Piranha are the best for this...run in teams of two so at least one makes it to the target unscathed preferably. Another good tactic with them is to combine them with a stealth markerlight team.

HQ

This is a standard...

Re: Dumb Question about bonding and HQ units

Yeah it is unclear if the IC counts toward scoring status or not when he joins. I wonder though if my Shas'O were to be given a bonding knife and the BASS team he joins were to fail a morale check...

Re: Dumb Question about bonding and HQ units

I have a sort of related wquestion. If I have a SHas'O who is bonded but has no others in his unit and I join said Shas'O to a Broadside team for example, does the whole team then become bonded?

Re: Gue'vesa

I have 12 of them that I use in friendly games sometimes.

I either use them as 2 very cheap, 6 man markerlight bases or I give them EMP grenades and send them armor hunting.

Re: Trogdor goes static

It's an effective list, but predictable. Lack of variety means that non standard type opponents will give you headaches. How do you deal with Lictors or Callidus assasins for example. Or what about...

Re: Piranha hit allocations

Riki you like to ignore previously stated rules and focus on specific sections at a time. This is not how the rulebook works. Since LOS and range are factors in the shooting phase that means those...

Re: FW Shas'uis or vespids?

Be sure if you do this that you are careful to hide your lone Piranha and only launch seekers, and drones from out of LOS. This way you preserve it's 90 VP's and can get another 90 for getting on the...

Re: FW Shas'uis or vespids?

Throw in 2 Shas'ui with markerlights for 40 points and a Piranha with fusion, TA, and 2 seekers.

It's a nice compromise that adds functionality to the list it didn't posess before. You get some...

Re: Fieldcraft rules: Needs some changes

Just make them ignore difficult terrain in all cover to reflect their lack of armor. Leave everything else the same and no points hike for this minor upgrade.

Then they will have 4+ saves in both...

Re: Seeker missiles seeking planes?

The skyray may use the AA rules as found in the forgeworld rules for the Ray before it was in Codex:Tau Empires.

This allows it to be an effective anti aircraft platform indeed.
