Total cost is 2k/2k, entire list would be Bork'an. The idea is to have the Cadre Fireblade + 3 units of Fire Warriors in the tidewalls as a mobile death fortress, the Fireblade will be in the droneport to give the 4 Marker Drones BS2+. The rest of the army will be: >1 Cadre Fireblade for footslogging buff >3 units of 6 FW (higher-unit/lower-model count so they can cover more ground/objectives), each with a DS8 missile pod turret for extra damage output once they've gotten into a good position, + 1 Guardian drone to share if they're close enough. >2 units of 6 Pathfinders, no special weapons, but have 1 of each Pathfinder drone to share. >1 Railhead with SMS +2 seekers >1 Twin Plasma hammerhead with SMS >Coldstar Commander with ATS, 2 missile pods, the Plasma Accelerator Rifle, & Examplar of Mont'ka >XV84 Commander with 2 Plasma Rifles + Integrated Markerlight and Target Lock (I wish I could drop the Target Lock) >1 Crisis team of 3 suits, (ATS, 2 missile pods), (ATS, BC, CIB), (Iridium, EWO, 2 BCs) + 2 gun drones and 1 shield drone >1 unit of 2 Tetra Pathfinders for greater markerlight output
All the FWs in the tidewall have pistols so that if the enemy does get into melee range, they can still fight back without having to disembark.
I really went in trying to get enough markerlight sources to reliably keep it on 5 for at least 1 or 2 targets each turn, I might've gone overboard. All of my sources of Markerlights: >1 Cadre Fireblade in Tidewall BS2+ >4 Marker drones ignoring move penalty and hitting on 2+ as long as Fireblade stays in Tidewall BS2+/BS5+ >1 Cadre Fireblade on foot BS2+ >XV84 Integrated Markerlight (30" range) BS2+ >total of 12 Pathfinders BS5+ >2 Tetra Pathfinders High Intensity markerlight (3ML stacks per hit) BS4+
I've only got 2 seeker missiles, so I feel like I'm not getting the most out of it, should I try to drop something (a drone?) for another seeker or 2?
fuck you, gotta use something when you run out of jalapeno cheese spread.
And in about one year from now, we will be able to play sisters models designed in plastic in this decade. What a time to be alive.
Fireblade aura doesn't work if he is embarked in a transport. Unsure if tidewall counts, but it should because GW hates fun.
Ion head > Railhead
I also see a distinct lack of drones. Do you like having >your dudes die?
Also if you're planning on actually buying this shit then for the love of jesus don't.
But it does look like fun
With the new covens and those leadership debuffs, is it viable to make a LD-bomb army? (I think it was called "freakshow" or something like that at 7th ed). Or is it just a waste of time, as it would only affect things that already should be dead?
they will be monopose
I like that the version of the Solar Auxilia triage pamphlet for after the Horus Heresy has started is basically just "If his suit is breached, he's dead, either from being dismembered by a bolt round or because the Death Guard have saturated the battlefield with radiological, chemical or biological weaponry".
And the metal minis aren't? Even if they are monopose it's a vast improvement over what we have currently
Its a max of -3 so not really, I mean its an ok bonus but you shouldnt base your army around it, its more like a nice after-thought. Night Lords can get even better debuffs and they arent particularly great.
>I bet your one of those idiots who doesnt where their reflective belt either.
They're just The Man trying to cramp my style dude. Neon yellow doesn't match my MTP ensemble, it'd clash.
Waste of time, too many things in the game are either outright immune to morale or functionally immune due to small squad sizes to begin with.
Unless there is some bomb ass ability they haven't revealed that cares about enemy Ld and is good enough to pick a faction trait for, but I'll believe that when I see it.
Warp travel, ain't got to explain shit.
There is no article on Sisters Why lie
>doesnt even wear silkies you disgust me
No joke though, had a SSGT go back stateside during our deployment in afghanistan because his wife hit and killed a corpsmen on the side of the road because he wasnt wearing his reflective belt and running along the side of the road at night.
This is... something good... that games workshop is doing? Pinch me
>Fireblade aura doesn't work if he is embarked in a transport Entirely correct, he's in the Tidewall to give the drones his BS skill (if there's a Tau INFANTRY unit embarked, the drones launched from the Droneport may use that models BS instead of their own. The army will be acting as two seperate groups, trying to do a pincer attack, tidewall fortress of doom on one side and footslogging + tanks and suits on the other >Unsure if tidewall counts, but it should because GW hates fun. RAW as long as the Fireblade (or any other aura written this way for that matter) is outside of the Tidewall, it will still work on the troops within. The Aura effects all units, but only works with certain weapons, meanwhile the Open-Topped Transport means that any and all modifiers effecting the transport also effect the units embarked within; Aura effects Tidewalls but does nothing for it, Tidewall transfers aura benefit to embarked troops, they get bonus.
>Ion head > Railhead I know it's a lot better, but I really prefer the Railhead over Ion just because RAILGUN. Hopefully I'll have enough MLs in place for it to be fine. I brought along the FW Plasmahead to help balance it out.
>lack of drones They're just so expensive right now I can't justify bringing very many, I included 2 gun drones + a shield drone for the crisis suits to act as additional protection and ablative wounds, + the guardian and pathfinder drones.
>Also if you're planning on actually buying this shit then for the love of jesus don't. I'm sorry user, I fully intend to, but not all at once. Right now my entire 40k collection is a partially complete Tau SC, 1 Cadre Fireblade, and 1 box of Pathfinders
That's what happens when you let SJWs into the military
GW really wrote themselves into a corner with morale. >Tyranids Mindless bugs, no fear >Necrons Mindless boops, no fear >Marines/edgy Marines/gold Marines Literally can't feel fear >Admech Mindless beeps, no fear >Orkz Only afraid of Farsight, fearless otherwise
Half the armies canonically shouldn't even be effected by morale so what's even the point of it?
>gotrek and felix neat >baneblade neat >age of shitmar shlock nah, miss me with that gay shit
Well to be honest seeker missiles aren’t great and neither are most suits. Broadsides (missiles and ATS) and ghostkeels are the only good suits aside, of course, from commanders. And stealth if you count them but even then it’s more “meh, I need elite filled and don’t want a marksman (which are breddy gud markeerlight fodder) or kroot” than good. The real winner is our volume of fire, easy brigades filled with FW squads can pump out hundreds of shots buffed by SoF ethereals and fireblades. Bork’an is good, just needs some help. Brigade is a tau must though, you need CP for a lot of stuff. Also what other people said
>what's even the point of it? Guard players and their Commissars.
Well if you're dedicated towards it then don't let your memes be dreams man.
Top stuff, fun, useful and unique and the stratagems so far seem to be very creative. Im glad GW has taken yet another army out of the gutter and that they are being more creative with Stratagems, makes me optimistic in the future of other armies.
>said no one ever oh hey, who wants their 400 points of assault terminators scatter into terrain or off the board and instantly wiped out.
No one thought they could make an entire codex out of Custards.
and and all plot progression is good. but i want my barefoot eldar waifu to defeat him in the final battle
Oh yeah, shit, I wear a hi-vis vest if I'm running on the road at night, I don't have a deathwish. Should be running on the side of the road facing on-coming traffic anyway so you can dive out of the way of homocidal wives and gf's in 4x4's. Fuck wearing that shit round camp though, haven't seen anyone actually do that in the Royal Bongistan Defence Forces outside of training.
Think of it this way with Euphrati Keeler. Spoilers for the first HH book. >Spawn a horror from the warp >Spawn some warpflame in front of her hand >Melt an Aquila into her skin >Everyone thinks she was given magic power by the Emperor >Now everyone has proof big E is a god >Just as planned
high risk, little reward. you could literally scatter into the unit you wanted to assault, and get wiped out anyway, that is if you didnt scatter into terrain or off the board. thats why land raiders were a thing, because it was too fucking dangerous to travel any other way.
weren't lotd post warp fuckery Firehawks? Pretty sure that precludes them from having Primaris
>GW makes snake elves look like a cross between elves and snakes What a shocker. New Celestine and girls looks ace
