Re: Thoughts on the new codex

I had a look at the new codex today. I'm happy with it, I guess. Definitely not ecstatic, but having Supporting Fire fixes 95% of our problems, so we're in good shape. I'm very new to 6th edition and have only a basic grasp of the rules, so some of my interpretations may be a bit off. So first and f...

Re: Tau Helmet Designs

Pics please. It's hard for me to give ideas if I've never seen the models.

Re: YNGYR ASSEMBLE!!!

If an army is overpowered in game, ok. An army really powerful will come by every once and a while. If they're fluff sucks too, then I can't stand it. GK unfortunately have both of those... Theoretically if Matt Ward wrote all the Codices then the problem would be solved.. And no doubtedly the unbal...

Re: the tau

Tau are one of the weaker 40k armies because their shooting is only average, and they're terrible in close combat. After your battleforce and pathfinders, buy 2, possibly 3 Sky Ray's and assemble them as Hammerheads. Read the codex to find out how markerlights work. It's explained quite well there. ...

Re: Evil Ethereals

Once again, comparing the Tau to the Imperium is not a solid way of tuning your moral compass :P Still, the kroot have no choice, but, to do what the tau want. They have to do what the Tau say or face condemnation, they joined willingly, but, without fully understanding and can't back out. Also, as...

Re: Evil Ethereals

Fairly sure the Tau codex said something hinting about the Vespid communion helms or whatever they're called being used to control the Vespid leaders. The Tau frown upon the Kroot's carnivorous habits, and it's pretty reasonable. If Ogrins/Ogryns(However you're supposed to spell it) in the Guard sta...

Re: Stop the hate and win in assault!

Seeing as you can't take Farsight and Kroot, that wouldn't work.

Tau can't make a viable cc list because Kroot are overpriced and will blow over in a light breeze. You might as well run a cc Fire Warrior army. At least you have an armour save :roll:

Agreed. As long is the army I'm facing isn't Grey Knights or Blood Angels, I think I have a legitimate chance to win.

Re: New Tau Player

PLEASE proxy for them. I'd hate for you to spend a couple hundred dollars on Tau, build and paint them and finally put them on the board only to go "Well these guys suck...".

Re: Evil Ethereals

Well, communism has a tendency to have corrupt leaders/people in powerful positions so I can't say I'd find it too surprising.
I'd like to see the article, so if you rediscover it sometime, please share.

Re: New Tau Player

Proxy a Tau army before you go out and buy them. See if you like how they play.

Re: A Tau Beginner

Pretty sure he can't be added to another squad if he has drones, but I'd check. I generally use my 'O as a distraction because putting him with the other XV8's makes that unit a huge fire magnet. Due to their low T, it's pretty easy to down an XV8 so I really dislike grouping them. Points spent on t...
