Just back to reading this forum again after a bit of a break.  (who knew grad school would take up so much time) I have to agree with Moscovian that the tone of this thread is a little tense.  I think most of that is frustration on both sides. In regards to the Initiative issue, I would pr...

Best solution I can think of would be to trade the Seeker attack for a Missile Pod.   The model has a missile pod, so that is not an issue.  Yes, that ignores that it can carry Seekers, but we're ignoring the Missile POd now, so that isn't a big deal. It gives a slight bump in GA firepower...

I'd say it is a great idea, if only so you can transport them in a Manta.

You might consider then changing the upgrade to two, which is a more natural number considering how they were packaged.  It would be awkward to field 7 of them.

but right now I'd rather work with a slightly reduced number of units, not an increased set.

Which is the right attitude to take.

I lie that image...funny stuff. IF Ethereals really are going to be 0-1 per army, it should use the same upgrade option as the Firewarriors, so you can't have 2 in the army.  The upgrade is already 0-1, just let it apply to the Manta or a stand of Firewarriors.  I am pretty sure Ethereals ...

DC 10 would be an option for sure. Fearless could work, but honestly hasn't been an issue in the games I have used a Manta. A better solution to me would be a price drop.  It doesn't need to be a Titan equivalent in every way.  Rather than pack every ability or weapon on it we can, let's k...

Kinda back to the original post.  I more or less designed the current Manta stats back in the Air Caste thread.  The questions brought up by TRC were intentional and not misprints. As was stated earlier in this thread the goal was to give the Manta equivalent firepower/resilience to the Re...

Been away from the discussion for a bit .  I am curious to see the recent activity on the existing lists.

What if any are the current proposed tweaks to the 5.1 list?  I like (or at least find interesting) E&Cs list.  Are other lists beig looked at as well?

It was intentional, but I would be happy to see it back in.

Hmm...so Firewarriors with FF4+ would be really good.  So good in fact they would be in every Tau army.  Firewarriors would be a must-have unit for the Tau.  Instead of complaints about Tau armies being dominated by GMs (like in the 4.x series lists) it would be a wave of Firewarriors...

Ya know, I disappear for a couple of months because school was too hectic and pretty much come back to the same conversations.    :vD


Anyway, I like the new rule, it makes sense and is easy to implement.

Gotcha, thank for the explanation. I have to say that I like the new rule, but have run into some of those problems you mentioned.  I haven't tried Stingrays or a Scorpionfish yet (no models), but they do seem to be the worst off for it.  I have always looked at GMs as secondary weapon sys...

Dobbsy - Are you concerned about any vehicle with a GM attack or just those where it is the primary weapon?  I have found my HHs are still plenty useful, but stingrays and scorp are tougher to use.

Honda, are you still working on this at all? After a quick scan, I would encourage you to turn the shaper into a character upgrade.  Or maybe have a character and a unit.  The reasoning being the existence of those units will really hurt the Vulture and Rider formations by slowing them down.

I had considered MLs, but with so many fewer GM attacks in the list I wasn't sure it would be all that useful.   I will also take a look at the CC attacks.  I think it could be justified, but I was concerned if I gave them too many improvements over the 5.1 versions the points would have t...
