Re: question about Tau army

I'm sorry to say this... but bodyguards thus can STILL take normal tau empire signature system, they are not characters by any means and can take signature systems. If anything, at least the normal suit leaders can't anymore.

Re: question about Tau army

I haven't read Mont-ka but if rules didn't change... the commanders and riptides are the ones who can't take Tau Empire signature systems and but can take farsight enclaves ones. A bodyguard or a normal suit leader can have the buffmander systems in a farsight list. It also makes it impossible to ge...

Re: question about Tau army

Sky rays are a bit nice but you need to shoot the missiles with markerlights so they ignore cover and hit side armor of tanks. Stuff like a basilisk/manticore will just die to 3-4 missiles. That's the points of the sky ray and it still has the obscene smart missile system and its AA lights. To crush...

Re: question about Tau army

Farsight's melee capacities is mostly about rushing at a tank and ripping it to shreds alone after having done stuff...
If you really want to have him with a melee squad, just give him 9 22 points battlesuits and as many shield drones and flamers as you want.

Re: question about Tau army

The base farsight supplement I believe doesn't allow anyone but a commander or a riptide to take their special gear. The battlesuit shas'vre and bodyguards stick with the Tau Empire codex ones. Regardless, you can't have two of them in the same army list. It is listed in the wargear of the special c...

Re: Help with farsight enclave 1500 pts list

Why... farsight enclave? Your models fit the Tau empire codex far better and to be clear, farsight is still in that one. The glaring hindrance of your army should be av13 and 14. Meaning, your suits are meant to deepstrike to kill them with fusion fire... wich is a bit odd and suicidal. Why is this ...

Re: new Tau?

Oh god... Wall of Mirrors... And I thought I would feel better playing my Tau again... To be clear... that's the formation with a ghostkeel unit and two units of stealthsuits. Does anyone else feel like Darkstrider got his weapon updated when the Tidewall Rampart came out? I wonder if they will rele...

Re: How to keep the idea, without loosing opponents (Tau 185

I believe someone needs a reminded that the list is for Choices in the weapon and support list. If you take 2 choices in the list, it can be 2 single version or 2 twinlinked versions of the same weapon, after all the commander can take 4 CHOICES in that list. There is nowhere in the book that prohib...

Re: Tau "Glory to Zeon"1850 points

For the zaku's... you do know you can give them 2 plasma or 2 missiles without them being twinlinked? The squad of two, I'd suggest adding a flamer or a target lock to the one with the airburst fragmentation gun... Do check if that one needs to be a sarge... I can't remember ontop of my head. The st...

Re: Tau teachings

I tend to play a game of baits. I know what my opponents likely wants to kill. I place it so he needs to overcommit to kill it and during my turn, I end the pieces I don't like while remaining in a 'good spot'. My games tend to be overly defensive but as I kill stuff, I need to shift toward where I ...

Re: Witchfires and Psychic Shriek

Wait... you think crush needs to roll to hit to obtain an automatic hit by description? Your argument also is RAI, as RAW states nowhere to consider psychic powers Assault until deemed otherwise. The whole premise of this vote is RAI vs RAW, unfortunately, people seems to have those two mixed up. Pl...

Re: Grey Knight Tactics

Edit your post and condense the points value into slot total and squad total Only. The rest is not approved on this site... As for your dilema... Your list is good, and it should be a doable battle by any standard for you. It might sound odd to say this outright, but you should be capable of dealing...

Re: Scaleable Army

Ecubical... the way you worded it leaves a detail. A faction means that if you double FOC or double CAD, you can take from wichever in the faction. In the empire, this mean you can take a sister CAD(1 hq 2 troops minimum) and a imperial guard CAD(1 hq 2 troops minimum). Each CAD follow their own rul...

Re: Witchfires and Psychic Shriek

I find that the evaluation of Raw was shortsighted in the video. Black and white rules as written. Resolving a psychic power. step 1, select power and legal target 2, atempt to manifest. 3, deny the witch, if not denied continue. 4, manifested power is psychic screech. 5, witchfire powers are shooti...
