Re: Tau Lists - 1000 to 1500

Not sure why you have a commander, a fireblade would probably work out better considering you also have the ADL quadgun.

Re: Crisis Battle Suit question

I think double burst cannon is where it's going to be. Cheap with insane amounts of firepower.

Re: Crisis Battle Suit question

This has been much debated and until there is official word in the form of a FAQ, house rule it.

I personally think that if you're having problems with 2+ save infantry, you'd probably be better served by a riptide with an accelerator.

Re: How many base attacks do the Kroot have?

Kroot snipers have a distinct range disadvantage compared to SM scouts and IG ratlings. It's also not like the sniper rule really helps Tau all that much.

As for the meatwall, they only advantage Kroot have over the ADL is that the kroot can move.

I don't know why people like the fireblade so much.

Re: Rifle or Carbine?

Rifle, especially considering the Ethereal rules about half range, there is very little reason to ever run a carbine.

Re: 1850 Tau 6th ed.

It frustrates me when people think its okay to go 1851, when the limit is stated to be 1850.

Re: Split fire question

You have to call them. Even then, it isn't really official until they put it into a FAQ.

Re: Question about Using Markerlights

Read the rules for the specific abilities the markerlights grant. They all reference the specific shooting attack that the markers were spent on. So no, you can't get multiple units to benefit from a single expenditure.

Re: Split fire question

1. Then how come these count as different units for kill points / first blood? You completely misinterpreted what he said. 2. does anybody know the e-mail for GW's FAQ? I think this is something that may need to be addressed with the game designers./ Last time I emailed them they said they don't do...

Burst cannons are not pulse weapons. They are burst weapons.

Re: Riptide thoughts

As I'm sure it has been stated, the entire appeal of the riptide is the s8 ap2 plates. Useful against MEQ, TEQ, and units of multiple wound models. It's range, when combined with the EWO, makes it a deep-strike deterrent for any of those units. That is it's niche, and outside of its niche it is much...

Re: Considering Tau, came up with two 1850 lists

Just so you know, Aun'Va is not an IC. I personally like the second list better, though the illegal commander kind of invalidates it. That said, I would like to suggest a compromise between the two. 050; Ethereal 108; 12 Firewarriors 081; 09 Firewarriors 081; 09 Firewarriors 081; 09 Firewarriors 081...
