The suits are WE correct. Wouldn't they block LOS for the skyray? no marker light unless it was up front with it's dick in the wind? no 360! War Engines with Tau Jump Packs. So they advance/double shoot with markerlights (Skyray at 30 cm) then Suits jump pack 10 cm to ring the skyray in RA4+. But n...

Thought the Eldar army was remarkably effective in this case - "good match up". Interesting how scary the multiple batteries of Night Spinners were. They were certainly good at breaking up the fairly numerous infantry formations. Do think that the "feature" of the Alaitoc Army, t...

Question Orca Capacity- how many space takes up brodside suits? the list only states crisis suits so i assume it is same Crisis Suit unit takes 2 transport slots [infantry unit assumes 3 suits] Broadside Suit ("unit") requires only one slot [Light Vehicle assumes only one actual suit] DES...

Re 3K UK touranments and lack of Mantas, I think another factor would be that few people actually own one, given it was a rather rapidly OOP Forge World model, and also 650+ point titans don't tend to be popular in 3K lists generally because is so many points and activation advantage cost. At 4K it...

Yeah, long live 4K, in the 40K universe, . . .

Perhaps we should have another low activation count 5K game!?

Anyway, Tau with Mantas win 8 out of 10 encounters. Was tau played by the same player in most cases? and, if so, without being too 'prying', would you say you're both of a similar base skill level at epic? I think we have pretty close games in general. Yes, same player for Tau most of the time, cer...

Mark challenged me to report on our win-loss ratio with Mantas. Does it really need a buff, . . . ? Facing a mobile pill-box with with Crisis Suits jumping in and out is slightly special rule aggravating. Anyway, Tau with Mantas win 8 out of 10 encounters. Four of them with an illegally over upgrade...

Here is the offending Vior'la Order of Battle for 4000 point game mentioned above by markconz. First Heavy BattleSuit Wing , with attached Pathfinder Support 2 XV109 Y'vahra, XV104 Riptide, Shas'el [300] 3 XV109 Y'vahra, Shas'el [275] 3 XV109 Y'vahra, Shas'el [275] 4 Pathfinders, 2 Devilfish [175] 4...

Having played Tau against Mark in the abandoned game referred to above - I'll write more soon, Borka, some quick feedback - clarifications. I'll go back and have another look at your Riptide version of armament. The extra shooting attack probably makes more difference than I thought. Also the 25 cm ...

Mark has kindly put together a battle report for a game where I tested some of the proposed (NDC) changes for Tau. Epic 4K: World eaters vs Vior'la Tau The fact that the World Eaters were so Close Combat focused against some big Tau skimmers made it a very poor match up for them. An ideal one for Th...

For example the lack of tetras and the nerf to Riptides felt very wrong. I also am rather less enamoured with the drop in ranged capability with the Riptides. Firepower in the 30-45 cm range is almost all gone. Lance is very situational in power projection out to 30 cm and 15 cm is very close befor...

Do you think the Ghostkeel should have Walker?
All the other suits, heavier and lighter, do or are infantry already.

- ghostkeel: ahhh, I understand now. That makes much more sense. And pricing at ~90pts seems more accurate. Black legion terminators come to ~70pts, but need to engage in CC for their MW and don't have marker lights, but have the better SR. Two Ghostkeels sustaining with stealth suits are 2+MW in y...

Ok cool that makes for a very tuff formation as long as you can protect the Ethereal. Would be cool to try out if I do 4000pts game. Looking forward to the report! Forgot the limit of three upgrades only on the Tau Third Phase list, v.6.8. However it would be legal with your Vior'la v.1.2 with four...

I have updated the OP with a new version 1.2. Thanks for that. Nice a clear that way. Could you give an example of such a formation? Don't you suffer from lack of activations then. In my last game I used a standard Tau v.6.8 Fire Warrior Cadre: 6 Fire Warriors, 3 Devilfish [225], 4 Fire Warriors, 2...
