Very nice. That thing next to him looks like a daemonhost
Lorewise? Farsight if you like mechs Vior'la if you like hotblooded warriors and dont mind lots of sterile white T'au if you like the classic color scheme and/or if you want to use the vast majority of the Special characters in the army Kor'tal because they orbit a black hole
Ruleswise? Vior'la for if you want to move and scoot Bork'an if you want to maximize your shooty ness T'au if you plan on getting charged/want to use any of the important named characters Farsight if you ever want to use a crisis suit
consider your arbites idea stolen.
Has a chaos marine warband ever been completely wiped out?

So out of boredom I looked into how you would go about replicating the Eight for 8th Edition, since they couldn't be arsed to include them in the Codex. There's a few things invariably lost in the transition -- for one, every suit came with a Multi-Tracker (which is now a Support System option) and a Blacksun Filter (which is gone now, though they could bring it back as a SS that gave you immunity to negative hit modifiers). Aside from that, there's a couple options that are now stratagems and a couple of members who use more than one Relic. Oh, and several have Stimulant Injectors, which are gone from the Codex but there in the Index (and used to give 5+ FnP instead of 6+). So, with that in mind: >Farsight: Already in >O'vesa Ion/Fusion Riptide with EWO and Stim Injector (see above). Unique gear is Earth Caste Pilot Array, which would give him WS6+, reroll 1s to hit when shooting and the ability to help bypass the Nova Charge drawback (so I would say a 5+++ versus Nova MWs). Also a Character. >Bravestorm XV8 Commander with Iridium and Plasma Rifle, Stim Injector, Shield Gen and the Onager Gauntlet. Valid loadout. >Brightsword XV8 Commander with Fusion Blades (not sure whether the two Fusion Blasters are replaced or not), ATS (redundant in 8th) and Stim. Also comes with a Warscaper drone, which would give ignores cover and infiltrate if translated to 8th ed. >Sha'vastos XV8 Commander with Plasma Rifle, Flamer and Shield Gen. Also taking the Vectored Retro-Thrusters (now Vectored Manoeuvring Thrusters, JSJ relic) and Puretide Engram Nerochip. >Arra'kon XV85 Enforcer Commander with Plasma Rifle, ATS and CIB, as well as Counterfire Defense System. He also has a Repulsor Impact Field, which is a stratagem in 8th (MWs when charged), but it could be made into an always-on ability without much trouble. (1/2)
>Vior'la if you like hotblooded warriors and dont mind lots of sterile white Armour colour isn't prescribed per sept, only the rank marking and such are kept in the sept colour because T'au value camouflage
i use a cabel knife and a nail clipper. being poor sucks.
Yes, mostly during the scouring, but some warbands have being killed in modern 40k
warbands/vectorums? sure. They might only be 30 or 40 in number. Even if theres a small number of survivors, im pretty sure they would just get rolled up into a larger thriving warband.
I use 10 year old citadel stuff but wish I bought wire clippers and an exacto instead.
Sure, 10k years of war without proper suply and overall fuckery going on in galaxy wiped some of them out I asume. If it could hammen to SM chapter it can to Chaos Bands too.
Move and scoot was better
Yeah, but a pure white scheme is obviously the baseline for Vior'la, like how ochre is the baseline scheme for T'au.
>Ob'lotai Bog-standard Broadside with SMS x2, HYMP x2, a Seeker Missile and Velocity Tracker. And Character keyword. Also has Bonding Knife Ritual, which is useless for single-model units. >Torchstar XV8 Commander with two Flamers, Target Lock (useless on Flamers in 8th), Drone Controller and two more former-wargear-now-stratagem options. Multi-spectrum Sensor Suite gives her Ignore Cover and Neuroweb System Jammer gives an enemy unit in 18" -1 to hit.
On the whole, most of them are easy to replicate, but for the most part are fairly inefficient. Would take some minor retooling too in order to remove anti-synergies due to rules changing into 8th (see: Torchstar). More importantly, you'd need 6 Detachments (assuming O'vesa and Ob'lotai didn't get the Commander keyword) to field them all in one army. Maybe we'll get a supplement after codices are done or something.
I'm not sure on what the thinking behind having the thighs be black on the leftmost one is, I suppose its just to have more of the center be darker than the extremities We're heading to something dark here I feel like, user Well, that is on the right here
Its not faith, its mechanicum boys doing their best to make angels look like anges.
I still think that this Sister form codexpade descibing SOB equipment is one of most beautiful women I have ever seen. Can you help with a pic? google hate me and that image.
You mean a cutting matt?
having the helm and thighs black makes it look more part of the center armor, instead of only having the corset be black, especially when everything else is white or purple. I think the gold on the helm really works out, and the white on the outside armor pieces looks pretty nice. I would almost say make the bicep armor black too, matching the thighs and it looks fantastic.
so Right with black bicep armor, gold helm ornament and that will look fantastic.
I thought everything pointed to them being the same person
It's not to paint little toys. It's to keep your table from getting scratched and painted on.
>cutting, painting and using greenstuff on an unprotected surface
Find me one (1) example of GW not putting boobplate on women.
I just use a thick piece of cardboard for that
>want to run Scions as Inquisitorial Stormtroopers with Deathwatch >anything Deathwatch can do, Scions can do better I'm wondering if the Codex would even fix this. Currently they don't really have an edge in anything except being tacticals with access to AP ammo.
Would a kind user help me by elaborating on what the fire that engulfed the Damocles Gulf mentioned in the Tau codex was and how it worked? I'm thinking of setting up a my-dudes sept on the fringes of the 3rd expansion. Was the fire something that would have disrupted space travel and kept them in a pocket of systems with similarly marooned other factions? I'm guessing the Eldar could have have popped in and out via the webway and, if it wasn't a warp storm, the imperium could still get ships through but a race like the Tau would basically be stuck.
Sory but I think they are one of the worst looking helmets for SM. I use cuting board I stolen form ma mam.
>being such a clumsy child you keep cutting the table and can't control your hands
dont worry, it was weeb week last week, with all the Tau posters.
I cant wait for the slaaneshi EC fapbait, and orkposting at end of year.
>I'm wondering if the Codex would even fix this.
If anything the Stratagems will at least be interesting. Why not just have a detachment of Vanguard Vets? Scions are certainly lacking in close combat and a bunch of small units is pretty good to tarpit stuff.
I would also say female guardsmen, but they dont make female guard models.
>T■au pissed off Mechanicum >Mechanicum set fire to space
It was a archo tech device set off by the beep boops in the imperium of man.
Look in the megas for last years tau/marine campaign. It was a 2 part set its detailed fully in there
Ores'Ka was the asshole, BUT it's the Shas'O Kais that was in the Fire Warrior, novelization of which implied that he was helped by Chaos, either Khorne or Tzeentch. Dunno how grimderpness it will bring to him. Anyhow Ethereals have a lot of explaining to be done, especially after Death Guard encounter.
>fans of race that will get soon codex are spamming about it where have you been before every single codex that is out were released?
By sheer points cost, yes. If you weren't having a prime Tempestor deep strike with them (which is dumb cause what else is that model going to do) and you were targeting vehicles or similarly high wound models, then maybe the meltas could do more damage if you were my lucky, but otherwise they would be outside of melta range, and would likely be dead before they can move up and shoot in melta range the following turn.
That would be an issue if tau had tits.
Well if you mean the bit between where the tits and the hose, I cant colour that separately with the program unless I want to start messing around with paint more So I did the next best thing and made the hose white Combined with Hmm, well here's what that looks like on the right I'm getting dizzy with all these images so apologies if I mixed my girls up
