Re: Sky Ray Missle Defence Gunship...How does it work?!

Yeah that's right. I usually like to spread out the missiles, but you can fire them all at a single target, provided you have 6 markerlight hits. It also doesn't matter where on the table the...

Re: Vespid rethink

I do think Vespid are a bit expensive for what you get, but most of the tactics here are only giving the Vespid the help of marklerlights. I like to take 8, the higher AP is better in higher numbers...

Re: Sky Ray Missle Defence Gunship...How does it work?!

It has 6 seeker missiles, 2 networked markerlights, and either 2 burst cannons, 2 gun drones, or a smart missile system (you get to pick from the last 3) The markerlights can fire seeker missiles as...

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

One thing I'd love to see different is something I noticed at a local tourny back in June. I was playing against an Ork speed freak army and was just a mob of bikers, and realized that pretty much...

Re: Candi cadre vs CSM

I think you could save some points by tweaking your suit teams a bit. With your pathfinders, you should be hurting for BS increases, so having TA's are a waste of points imo, especially when paired...

Re: 1500 Planetary Empires Campaign. Lotsa text.

I think some Fireknives would be a nice addition to the list, since they've got some mobile, long range anti-light armor capabilities. I do love the large number of Battlesuits though, I always run...

Re: 1500 Planetary Empires Campaign. Lotsa text.

Is this list specifically for the Tyranids?

The major problem I can see with this is that you have a small number of lethal shots, and it may be harder than you think to kill the entire army....

Re: 2k tourny list needs help aginst drop pods

Oh no, I meant only fire with the fire warriors, not the kroot. Sorry that was a little confusing.

Re: 2k tourny list needs help aginst drop pods

There's a guy I play against who loves using drop pods, and always has at least 3, usually more. One thing about the drop pods that is good news for us is that the unit can't assault on the turn it...

Re: Tourament on the 24 Oct

I'd also drop the gun drone and give you Shas'el and shield drone... that invunerable save is nice to have around.

I personally used two teams of Crisis suits configured just like yours in a...

Re: 1500 Angry Tau

You're also going to want to drop one of those gun drones from your XV8 team, since in 5th the units with multiple T use the majority, and 3 drones will drop your XV8 T from 4 to 3. If it's a tie you...

Re: 16 crisis suits 1500 pts would this work?

It's crazy, but maybe crazy enough to work. Like you said it would do poorly in objective grabbing, but in capture and control you could knock your opponent off his and keep yours which is still a...

Re: 2000pt hunter cadre

Unless I'm reading this wrong your XV88 teams are illegal. You can't have both the suits be 'vres in the same team, so one suit will have the A.S.S. while the other has a HW DC and 2 drones in...

Re: 1500 point incomplete tourney list. What is it lacking?

Also a Shas'vre with a HWMT and shield gen would do wonders for your XV8 unit. They'll get a lot of fire, especially with the fusion blaster since they have to get pretty close to use it. You could...

Re: Fighting Orks.

Burst cannons/missile pods would be better on your suits. And the AFP like Typhon said. The good thing about Tau when facing Orks is that we can shell out an incredible amount of S5 shots. Since Orks...

Re: 500pt tourny

Eldar wouldn't be a bad ally as long as you stay away from him ;) They've got some decent assault units. Imperial Guard would be ok, but than I'd recommend keeping the kroot. If you can find some...

Re: 500pt tourny

I personally take a Broadside team leader with a shield drone in 500 pt games rather than the Hammerhead. It's a good 50-60 pts cheaper, has the same BS and the railgun is twin-linked. This can give...

Re: My Latest Tau Army - Feed Back Please

He's got the pathfinders and the stealthsuits with 'lights. I kind of like the hammerhead and skyray duo. You can hide the Skyray behind terrain or ruins and let the missiles fly.

Re: 1500 pts tournament list critics appreciated

OK, so Counter Measures are Decoy Launchers.

Topometric Sensors has to be Sensor Spines. Laser Guided Missiles are Seeker Missiles, and I'm pretty sure the Weapon Stabilizer is the Multi-tracker...

Re: 1500 pts tournament list critics appreciated

You're right about the shield drone, if 2 lascannon's hit you, he's toast, and you'd want a shield generator instead. A drone is 5 points less though, so if you can't spare the extra points then it's...

I like some of the French names. Impulse cannon sounds way better than what I assume is the burst cannon for us ;D


One thing to consider with the list is that you have a lot of anti-tank...

Re: Mobile Assault Cadre: What is GW thinking?

If you work the math out and don't count the stealth suits at all, you still save about $30 on the rest (HHs, FWs, Pirahnas, etc.) But then you're paying $30 for 15 stealth suits, which is sweet no...

Re: Opinions, 'Ard Boyz Tau Army

I played a game against Necrons today and fielded two sniper drone teams instead of a pair of broadsides and they more than made up for the points they cost. The AP 3 railrifle is an excellent...
