    A new army? A huge expansion to your current army?

    Either way, I recommend it all go to GW in some way.

    Edit: Shifted Matrix again beats BoLS in the news of the new FW stuff. This time by days.

    One of my squads last night used first rank fire second rank fire to kill a Necron lord with full wounds in cover :D

    It was 2 wounds from lasguns that went through and one from plasma! That squad will certainly be receiving honors. I believe after they killed him, he stood up with 1 wound then made them run off the field. Then the nearby platoon command with chimera shot him down and he didn't stand up :D

    It was a pretty fun game - my penal legion managed to take an objective. Necromunda Goliaths whut whut :D

    I'm so glad I have you guys here. There's a douchenozzle over at the SA forums trying to say that putting special weapons in boyz squads is a bad idea and my brain is about to explode from his smug idiocy.

    it depends on the role, I don't usually put them in my truk boys squads, though in big footslogger shoota boys squads I'll throw in big shootas.. Bs2 makes rokkits better fired from deffcoptas or somewhere else they are twin linked tho

    Only if you have the points to justify spending it on a unit like that. If I dropped the rokkits from my 2 slugga boy squads (30 man) then I wouldn't have the points to buy any significant form of rokkit firepower and I'd be taking some versatility away from my mobs.

    Has anyone with some inside knowledge herd what the second wave of daemons will be, or when they will be released. I want to start a daemon army. Seems like everyone is starting one.

    Anyway I didnt want to buy the metal horrors or plaguebearers if they will be coming out with plastic minis this year.

    There have not even been rumours of anything besides the new prince, but seeing as horrors and bearers are troops, it seems reasonable to assume they'll be plastic some time.
    Depends how badly you want them I guess.

    Couldn't they move sideways?

    They are pretty much equal. You could try moving them diagonally. I'll mess with it tomorrow and let you know.

    You mint, *Might* be able to pull it off. I just ran some quick tests and there's a specific angle that allows it to be just fully on the table and have traveled only 6". It severely limits the arc of fire though and you'd be screwed if you had a squadron of them.

    Of course if I had a squadron of them I'd just deploy them normally and hope the 9 twin-linked lascannons would be enough to deal with what front armor they'd have to face.

    You can just leave part of them hanging over the side of the table. Just be sure not to jostle anything with your elbow.

    But you're not moving off the table, you're moving onto it. Nothing in the rules address the matter at all. I play it that it's cool for parts of vehicles hang off the table, otherwise you end up with really weird situations, like Monoliths not being able to move on at all because they're longer than 6" at the base.

    For the valkyrie, at least, I would simply rule the base has to move less than six, if the tail is hanging off, its not a problem. Then again, Im also lenient with things like gun barrels on tanks going over deployment lines(since you measure from base of gun along the barrel).

    Looks like the common consensus is that you measure from the base for skimmers, so a Vendetta only has to move as far as the skimmer diameter to enter the board during an outflank, thus still being able to fire all lascannons and even rotating around. I asked on Dakka, LibrariumOnline, and HeresyOnline. For some reason it won't let me post on Bolter and Chainsword.

    Ok guys, here's my sample Tau list. I don't have a codex with me, so this is very rough in terms of points and loadouts, but it's about 1500 points. C&C please!
    Shas’o – 175
    Cyclic Ion Blaster, Airburst
    Shield Generator
    Iridium Armour
    Stimulant Injector
    HW Multi Tracker
    HW Target Lock
    Goes with Carbine FWs for close range infantry eating. Tough as nails.


    Two Stealth Teams: - 300 each
    6 Stealth Suits
    All with Drone Controllers and two Gun Drones
    Close-ish range infantry munching. Maybe use Fusion Blasters?

    One Marker Stealth Team - 300
    4 Stealth Suits
    Leader with Target Lock
    All with Drone Controllers and Two Marker Drones
    Marker shit up.

    6 FWs with Rifles – 80
    Leader with Markerlight
    Long range plinking.

    6 FWs with Carbines – 60
    Short range plinking.

    2 x 15 Kroot Carnivores – 105 each
    Outflank and eat.

    1 x 10 Kroot Carnivores – 105
    One Krootox
    Sit on an objective and shoot away.

    So, problems: I have virtually no anti-armour. Fusion blasters seem a little too close for Stealth Suit comfort, and I really don't want to risk my Shas'o that much... but I may have to. I woudl love to get Hounds and more Oxen, but the price is not right. Any suggestions on how to get some highly mobile anti-armour into this force? I want to avoid using Broadsides and Hammerheads if at all possible - so Fusion Blasters might be my only option :/. Anything I'm overlooking?

    I know. It's a themed army - I want to have some close range, melee capable Tau. No particualr reason in doing so.

    I'm considering Skyrays as my heavy support choice - I suppose if I've got to use somethnig for armour cracking, off-site artillery fits with teh jungle-warefare theme.

    Maybe I should get that commander with the double twin-linked fusion blasters... I suppose she'd be good for tank killing...

    Does anyone have experience in using stealthies for tank hunting? Does it end in molten slag, or tears?
