Re: 1850 Competitive - FE w/ 2 Firebase Support Cadres

Rock on, Lucarikx! I dig the list a lot actually! I feel like it should be a given that someone posting a list would like feedback or comments on their list if they posted it. That's a major reason for being here, is to look for ideas on lists.... Everyone here seems to be such a rule junkie, yikes...

Re: 1850 Competitive - FE w/ 2 Firebase Support Cadres

Troops: Crisis Suits (3 man) - 69 Troops: Crisis Suit - 23 Wow! So basically your troops can only punch things to death? Personally I would drop something somewhere to give those Shas'ui some weapons but it definitely makes for a distinctive list. Don't be rude. You can give advice without resortin...

Re: Drop-podding Grav Centurions (with tanky characters)

Firstly, a unit of 3 grav centurions puts out 15 grav shots because they are armed with grav cannons rather than grav guns. Given this, they can reliably demolish most units in one turn of shooting. That said, you're opponent is paying (guesstimating) about 350-400pts for that unit, so if you can de...

Re: Escalation league Tau Empire or Farsight enclaves

If the cron player is bringing night/doom scythes in a 750pt league, then a riptide with an earth caste pilot array, heavy burst cannon, smart missiles, velocity tracker, and early warning override is your friend. You have a re-rollable 3+ to supercharge the burst cannon into Heavy 12 Rending Gets H...

Re: Escalation league Tau Empire or Farsight enclaves

Where is the question then? When you can change the loadout of your Crisissuits, then take the Enclaves. Don't be rude. The point of this forum is for new Tau players and veteran Tau players to ask questions, share knowledge, and learn more about the faction they play. Keeper, I get the impression ...

Re: Top Tier Terror

1. Weak Scoring Units The Tau way of war focuses not on capturing and holding objectives, but first eliminating the enemy. Once that is done, you can move on an objective unopposed. We have the firepower to remove enemy units from objectives, and create threat zones against further attempts at capt...

Re: Indirect AP1 nerf and HRR

To that, however, the only MC's that have 4+ or worse saves are the harpy/hive crone and the non-khorne greater daemons. Every other monstrous creature in the game has a 3+ armor save or better. Even with the greater daemons, it is possible to increase their protection through spells/rewards. And a...

Re: Indirect AP1 nerf and HRR

Against MCs, a Rail Rifle can only ever get at maximum one Wound, though it has good odds of getting it. Against say, a Carnifex, the HYMP has the potential for more, but also the potential for none. Against Sv4+ MCs, it's vastly superior. To that, however, the only MC's that have 4+ or worse saves...

Buildings have hull points now. Small ones have 3, medium's 4, and large's 5. When a building is reduced to zero hull points it suffers a total collapse.

Re: Indirect AP1 nerf and HRR

It's a pity you have to get through the armour to do all that, though. That's where it always falls flat on the table for me. That, and the fact that outmaneuvering Broadsides in general is too easy given how static they are. That's when you have to prioritize what you're broadsides will be shootin...

Re: 7th Edition Changes Discussion

Or just change it back to being a railgun. But it's obviously not a railgun. Look how huge the Hammerhead Railgun is. It was ridiculous that the old Broadsides had their punny guns being as effective as them. I know the size discordance happens in other armies, for example for lascannons wielded by...

Re: Indirect AP1 nerf and HRR

Surely it's easier to stun the crew with a HYMP, as it never blow up a closed-top vehicle, whereas the HRR has a 1/3 chance of doing just that? It is undoubtedly easier, but the HRR gets more chances because of its superior range. Don't get me wrong, the HYMP has the HRR outright beat in raw shooti...

Re: Indirect AP1 nerf and HRR

One thing that everyone forgets when discussing HRR vs HYMP is board coverage. The HYMP only has a 36" range and a smart player will keep his vulnerable armor out of its range until the broadsides are destroyed. Units like lascannon devastators and dark eldar ravagers can accomplish this easily...

Games Workshop FAQ's are Live, and no Tau Empire?

Howdy all, I just wanted to inform the community that the FAQ's are now live for both 40k and Fantasy (http://www.blacklibrary.com/faqs-and-errata.html). If you notice, there is no errata for the Tau empire, just for the Farsight Enclaves. Noting this, does this mean that we can now equip missile dr...

Re: Giving new life to the Railside

I personally love railsides, and the reason for that is while the missileside can push out a lot more fire power, the railside has a much bigger threat range. A smart player will stay outside a missileside team's effective range, target them with enough fire power to destroy them, and then advance....

Re: 2000pts Farsight allied with tau empire + dataslate

Hi, Mattist, and welcome to ATT! Not to be nitpicky, but I believe allied detachments are disallowed from taking fortifications. So you would only be able to take one unless you run Double Force Orginization. Other than that, your list looks like a cool idea. Play some games with it and let us know ...
