I'd really like to try a Land Raider heavy Marine List. Since Land Raiders have transport capacity then that fits the Mechanised Infantry theme. Don't mind other lighter armour being added to the formations but would rather not have to take them on core Mech Inf formations. So I rather liked the Hea...

Just wondering about the points costs on your list. Vior’la Cadres 1.01.pdf Fire Warrior Cadre: 6 Fire Warriors, 3 Devilfish [225], 2 Crisis Suits [+25 ea, Lose 2 FWs, 1 Devilfish], Shas'o [+100], Breacher [free] giving: 4 FW Breacher Teams, 2 Devilfish, 2 XV8 Crisis Suits, Shas'o for 375 points.

How would adopting the developing Epic UK Vior'la list go?
Maintaining a common link with the Third Phase list.

And developing a more heavy battle suit oriented list as the NetEA project? Ke’lshan?
Or has the proposed Epic UK list got all the heavy gear already?

I like the camo scheme, looks like dazzle camo from the WWI. Delighted it appeals. A homage to Naval Dazzle patterns and to more modern Arctic Dazzle. My story for this force's camo scheme is that the troops are part of a Lunar Defence force. The 19th Armoured Regiment in honour of the unit remembe...

Given I complete mis-read the transport entry on the Orca, sorry, I am somewhat hesitant to add commentary. But I think the stats for the basic Fire Warriors is missing? Also the "skyraysxzasa" upgrade on Heavy Suits looks like it ought to be just Skyray. I have never been keen on the Skys...

Had a look through the list some likes and queries. The price drop on Pathfinder formations, with or without Devilfish, is very attractive. And it is in the core choice section. Riptides and the other Heavy Suits in the core section. Not likely to take the Skyray upgrade since it, as an AV, can easi...

The Tau 3rd phase list is solid. Widely agreed and used, eg Epic UK approved, AS WELL AS, NetEA. Looking at the Epic UK army lists sections there is ONLY ONE list with a Manta. So clearly a sub-optimal choice as we have been discussing. Only point this out since there are also data about the select...

Congratulations on the new role Borka. Looking forward to progress to approval. On the Manta Like the split for the Heavy Rail Cannons. Please give it Co-ordinated Fire to reflect the Command Bridge. With those changes perhaps 600 points each. A bigger jump down from Third Phase Tau at 650 points wi...

What were you thinking of using as models (proxies) for the different suits?

XV9 (as compared to XV8)
XV25 with Shas'vre (as compared to XV15/25)
Ghostkeel?
Other big suits?
With different loadouts?

Tactics that "work" using Crisis Suits are an elusive goal for me. Landing a regular Orca within 30 cm, 15 cm disembark with Jet Packs, is sometimes fraught. In this case you lose out on the Init +1, that you are paying for, and cannot Tau Jump Pack after shooting. I have enjoyed putting t...

Really like the variant suits for the Shas'o upgrade. Fluffy and fun and one only so never over powered. Nice to see some variant Battle Suits, and some of those look fun. The twin Burst Cannons AP5+ on the XV9s seem a little underpowered compared the AP4+, Disrupt on the Silenced Burst Cannons on t...

Meant to add that the costing of generalist unit in epic tends include a cost for all the components in the "package" but in reality not all those components can be used at the same time so you get an over-costed unit. So I'd enjoy a slight price drop too. Please remember that with a price...

I have used Mantas quite a lot. Look at Markconz website Hordes of Things for many battles reports with them. It would be great to hear how one turns out in a tournament setting. Do tell how it goes Borka. My experience is that if the enemy has even moderate MW/TK weaponry the Manta will tend to tak...

I'd always assumed that the big suits - Riptides etc - did not fit in Mantas. At least not in a combat ready form. But this discussion prompted me to a quick look online: XV104 Riptide Battlesuits will often be found in combat where the fighting is thickest and will take the brunt of any enemy attac...

But I plan on using the EM4 mechs http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/Science_Fiction.html As the basis for conversion. The two bipedal mechs are slightly different in size (not apperent in the photos). And I think they will work well for these two battlesuits. I have been using the EM4 mechs as ...
