Need help bringing list from 100% to 75% to make it fun.

I am in a tournament which isn't serious but is meant to get more players into the game. I, being a new player, am now 6 games out of 12 in and I am seeing the lists that I build are too powerful for this. I feel like they are at 100% instead of 75% and it feels like my opponents are not having fun....

Re: Vostroya and Tau

ALRIGHT WHAT!?!? Did you see the Armageddon troops? They essentially gave them an army wide Volley Fire with rapid fire weapons. Are we going to get some changes in our codex then because this is looking insane?

Just realized it also applies to Vehicle heavy weapons making it deadly.

Vostroya and Tau

So the new Vostroya doctrine just gave their Rapid fire and Heavy Weapons +6" range making it 30". Do you guys think this is going to be a problem for the Tau, or because it is only limited to Vostroya that it won't be too much trouble?

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

You know if you really wanted to do a Special Forces theme you could look into a small army of Tempestus Scions. Deepstrike + small man groups + special weapons teams scream Special Forces. I'm not trying to push you away from Tau, I love these little bluegills, It's just they aren't really speciali...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

What color are you going to use for the base? The one that is in the art (Deep brown with greyish highlights) or a more contrasting color like green? or a mixture of both?

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Is there a reason for taking the Drones in such big squads? Would not bringing squads of 4 be better?

Gun Drones x 4
Gun Drones x 4
Cadre Fireblade w/ Gun Drones x 2
Devilfish w/ Gun Drones x 2

That way I have 4 squads per Devilfish to put where I need.

Why would bringing more in a squad be better?

Re: 500pts Strange Rules Do You Think This Is Enough?

Ooh, that's interesting! If you find someone with an assault-y army, then you can design an army that's all about supporting assault units. To go from 500 points to 1000 points, what other models do you have? Well I have my other thread going which you have commented on but I have: 2 boxes of Pathf...

Many thanks all around for the help and feedback :) I feel like this is the list I'll go for my "first" game :) I'll get a few games under my belt and learn from my misstakes and see what I feel like need to change for larger games. I feel l have something for everything with a good start...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Good question. Old paint can do weird things to a model, especially when it was applied badly/thickly- even lots of scrubbing with a toothbrush and Simple Green can't get congealed paint out of cracks and lines on the model sometimes. After a while, you look at a model and determine that it's just ...

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

That's what I did some years ago! 100 models, a lot of simple green, maybe 85-90 made it out alive. Not bad. You come to love the smell of simple green after all that :D Did it have any effect on repainting them? Did the models (that survived) look fuzzy at all? And what happened to the 10% that di...

I honestly have no idea. Apparently we are supposed to grab another tournament player and ally with them

Re: Arka0415's Tau Sept Project Log

Also on the magnets I really like K&J Magnetics 1/8" x 1/32", N52 strength. They are based in Pennsylvania, USA if that makes a difference. So far they work great. Picked up 80 for $8.80 without shipping (shipping was $7.00 for the fastest shipping). Great for Crisis / Commanders.

1000pt game Table to win

I've got one week. The next match is going to be 1000pts between 4 people (2 teams)((I think)). Really the only rule is to Table the opponent (no objectives / kill points etc etc which is sad). This is what I've got so far: Outrider HQ Cadre Fireblade w/ Gun Drones x 2 Longstrike w/ Gun Drones x2 / ...

Re: First 1000 point list - Special forces theme. How good can it get? :)

I sooooo wish we could do special forces but I feel the only guys we can do that with are Commanders, and nobody will like you for bringing 7 commanders. I just did a game today (500) and sticking a Commander with missile pods and a Drone controller inside a group of 18 drones with a Cadre Fireblade...
