Swooping Hawk wings

Has anyone else noticed that Swooping Hawk wings don't give an Autarch the Skyleap or Herald of Victory rules? I'm assuming this means that an attached Autarch will cause a squad of Swooping Hawks to both scatter on Deep Strike, and not be able to Skyleap. Please let me know if I'm just missing the ...

Re: Writing down a few ideas

Nadia, you forget that haywire grenades can be used in an assault. That is when they shine! I do agree though that I would only arm 6 man teams with them and give them a Devilfish to make them more mobile.

Re: HELP! I'm making a shopping list!

For low point games to begin with I'd take the Fireblade over shadowsun.

Re: How many Rail Rifles in the new Pathfinder set?

You get 3 rail rifles, 3 ion rifles and enough carbines for everyone. It also only comes with 2 drone bases. Mine came with 3 flying bases to build all 3 specialty drones, if you only got two contact them and they'll probably send you a bag of 5 of them lol. On a side note another thing you'll have...

Re: 2500pt List

Actually I'd you take shadowsun you'll only get one warlord trait. Either the deep strike w/o scatter or the 3d6 assault jump. What I would do is give some of the f-bomb burst cannons and don't expect them to survive the round after they land.

Re: Op tau

answer to A... they're basically a psychic power with buffs, but Tau don't roll for them, think of them as special orders of the guard just without the re-roll So what you're telling me is that Tau can now pretty much cast pyschic powers AND are better than Eldar as it requires no roll? :shock: Sou...

Re: The Tau Codex is in my hands! Ask me anything!

I'm actually more concerned about breaking the forums rules and getting banned than GW bring the hammer down on me personally.

I'd almost submit that to the FAQ email and see if it isn't an oversite.

Re: 2k Tau, post FAQ

Personally I feel you'll need to fit one HH into your list or you are going to get curbstomped by av14. While Meltas will do the trick you'll have to get within 9 inches to make them effective. To save on points I'd just take the dumbed down HH with a DP. While I know armour is fragile in 6th, just ...

Re: 2k Tau, post FAQ

Take the velocity tracker off one broadside and give it a target lock. That should eliminate your need for a deathrain squad and free up points to reinforce your anti tank needs in the army.

Re: Shield Drones in squad and wounding question

Sniper, I don't see anything in the dex that says the entire unit gains the 4+ invuln save. I'm fairly certain that only the drone has the save so the idea is to put them up front to soak the high powered hits and save the unit.
