Tau Q&A on natfka (warlord traits and stuff added)

Post  Lore Weaver on Tue Apr 02, 2013 2:40 pm

Thar be a QnA going on.

Highlights include:

- Firewarriors, 9 points base, come with photon grenades standard, otherwise unchanged (this might make them... useable?)
- Kroot a point cheaper, have the option to spend a point to make their weapons heavy 1 sniper. They have stealth (forests) and move through cover. Lost a point in Strength. Kroot hounds are cheaper, Krootox the same? (dunno if they lose infiltrate yet.
- Riptide costs the same as the highest point total on a dart board. (say it... SAY IT! ONE HUNDRED AND EIIIIIGGGGGHHHHHTTTTEEEEEEEE)

Spanish Pics.

Verifies a few things. Looks like Burst Cannons are S5 AP5 18" Assault 4 now? http://latabernadelaurana.blogspot.com.es/2013/04/rumores-codex-imperio-tau-filtrado.html

10 Kroot for 60 Puentos! 25 Puentos for a Krootox! PUENTOS! These Spanish codexes are 33% funnier than the German ones.

lol, i was laughing at his attempt at work; fuenta is fountain, mark; actually, fuento is fountain, so you used the wrong word for hot, and spelled it wrong; its like you invoked the spirit of some...mispelling gamer person! Razz fuego translates as fire, but they'd know what you meant if you said muy muy en fuego.

tip: the line beau gave ya after is "Two Beers, please? Where is the bathroom?"

Who needs sky fire when you can spend 4 marker lights to jack up to BS 3 and grab Ignores Cover, eh?

Farsight has the trait where he doesn't scatter on deepstrike.

That's quite the potent alpha strike. You could build a body guard with 2 twin-linked plasmas, 2 twin-linked fusion, and 2 twin-linked burst cannons and basically alpha strike anything and then have a bunch of ridiculous suits in the opponent's backfield.

You need it for those 24 markerlight shots you just fired to get 4 markerlight hits..... That's 6 terta or 3 pathfinder sqds right?

I like how half of the warlord traits have the "reroll if you don't have X" clause to them. Gives you a bit more control of what you get for non-named HQ's. The consumable effect on the other half is pretty spiffy, too.

Oh gw.. i like the markerlight rules.. BUT what still burns my britches a bit is the flat rate of everything needing a 6 to hit despite BS. Vindicares still need 6's to hit.. but a firewarrior with one markerlught needs a 5.

Small things like that bug me.. *grumble, grumble*

I think it would be very easy to allow exceptional marksmen with BS'S higher than 5 a bonus to snap shots and overwatch.

that pinpoint rule is the only thing i'd say is bs. they went through all the trouble of making it very clear to everyone, nothing can ever improve the BS of a snap shot, ever, and then they put a special rule in a codex that lets you not only alter it, but potentially alter it drastically. good job guys, way to keep consistency.
