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 ...

. . . many things in Epic are abstracted . . . Marker lights are kind of a screwed concept form the beginning. These are hard things to swallow as it makes an exception to a core rule shooting and challenges the ZOC concept. Seems Markerlights are getting rather slandered here. Every special charac...

I assume no triple retain for this branch of Eldar. That would mean that mean the Witch-sight, and hence the Void Dreamer character, is less valuable than a Farseer. Slightly compounded by losing the Leader from the Felarch. Although I happily admit that retaining on a 2+ instead of a 3+ is pretty u...

Forgot to ask. Which formations can garrison?
Rangers (Ghost Walkers) and War Walkers (Wasp Walkers?)?
Maybe Hornets?

Liked the look of playing with this list. Just wanted to check some things: The Character upgrades with armour, CC and FF values - do they replace the stats of the unit they join? The Vampire Hunter seems to have four MW2+ shots. 2x Vampire Hunter Twin Pulsar, 30 cm, 2 x MW2+ I assume that the forma...

Always great to see a Manta planet-falling onto the battlefield. Sounds like a very touch and go opening engagement - a near run thing. Firstly, I was lucky to get away with a 0-0 draw. A couple failed Tau activations and poor shooting by the AX-1-0 robbed Atension of a sure win. Failed activations ...

Very interesting finally a reason to paint up my 2 last Mantas :) This is exactly my motivation. At this stage my "true scale" [1:3000] Explorer Class vessel and the three Mantas [1:300] are all painted up ready for battle. Thought I'd try some advance warning before springing them on Mar...

Lots of other races have their titan war-engine lists and I was thinking perhaps one was possible for Tau. Suppose that a Tau force arrives in orbit and wants to land against significant ground opposition. What would they use? The core of the force would be a flight of Manta Dropships with extra lif...

Yes, did mean 3 Jet Bikes - swapped it around a couple of times and forgot to amend that figure. In terms of cost it does not compare to unfavourably with a standard mechanised guardian formation. Has some 15 cm MW firepower and can shift 35 cm on a consolidate and still provide FF support. 2 Farsee...

So a couple of combinations attract my attention:

2 Farseers, Wave Serpent, 3 Jet bikes, for 225 points.

2 Farseers, 2 Wraithguard, 3 Wave Serpents, 2 Jet Bikes, for 425 points.

2 Farseers, 12 Guardians, for 250 points.

Seem OK, but were they your intention?

4. with Ulthwe being heavily reliant upon guardians we need to buff their only core choice the BGWH --> multiple upgrades are added in order to customize your BGWH to your own liking (additional guardians, transport options, war walkers) What about allowing some jet bikes in there. Say swapping a f...

Glad to see that they have that stuff back in stock.
Used it for most of my plastic scratch builds.
Couldn't get it the last time I needed to replace.
