Default Broadsides in Ninja Tau?

I have a question for TauOnline: Is it viable to use a Broadside in a Ninja Tau Army?

More specifically: Can you hold "Table Edge Reserves" by use of a Positional Relay? Or do they all come in turn 2?


All help is appreciated!

yes.

If you us a tricked out HQ choice for your PS, then a 2 man XV88 team with a tricked out team leader. You should have 4 shield drones, all 3 suits can pick a different target and your HQ carrying PS suit splits at the first sign of CC. This should keep your PS alive for the 4 turns necessary for the Ninja to work properly.

If you mean can you hold XV88s off the board till later then answer is also yes.

Yes and Yes

All reserves (no matter how they enter the battle) can be held off the table/or brought on, by the Positional Relay.

Broadsides are a very good TER unit, IF you give them the A.S.S. This means they can be effective the moment they come onto the table (Ie. They can move on and fire - you don't have to move on and then wait a turn.)

A good setup for a team of 3 is 3 x A.S.S, make one of them a Team Leader and give him a HW Target Lock and HW Drone Controller (and 2 x Shield Drones).

Same set up for a team of 2, and a Monat should just be a Monat Team Leader - A.S.S and HWDC - 2 x SD.

It's worth noting that if you are going to place your commander with a broadside team, iridium armor is a viable upgrade as you will not be needing mobility.
