@Kohato was the tau date just a random leak or did I miss something?

So I played a game with my Shadowsword tonight. Used a Supreme Command detachment with 3 Primaris Psykers for the HQ, added Salamander Command Vehicle and Trojan Support
It was absolute, unadulterated, pure filth.
I played a fellow Guard player that had like 8 tanks including Russes, a Basilisk and 3 hellhounds
Between the SS and Pask at the end of the game he had one tank left with 1 wound remaining.
Just...gross.
Ran it as Valhallan, too. Just...like, just shy of broken.
There are many things that would own it. But man, against the right list it's brutal.

Also, I'm aware that no Bothans died bringing us this information -- it's not news or anything. Just my first experience playing with it.

@CrusherJoe still sounds like fun

I mean, it was fun. Tossing Nightshroud and Psychic Barrier on it helped a lot, too.

i do find it quite odd they'd announce the codexes, then leave it over a month without mentioning them again
James
@skonk
Feb 23 2018 13:41
yeh
at the start they were giving regular release dates, 3 at a time
which was nice
like, genuinly nice to know so you could plan your spends

think AoS and Malign portents are taking some focus etc. I know I'm waiting for Necrons .. but it's nice to have a breather with all the rapid fire releases lately ... can focus on 'other' stuff ...

Hmm, possibly tau suit troops are back :)
Sept-Rules for Farsight, I'd love being able to do crisis as troops agian

i'd say unlikely, but not impossible
mostly because saim-hann didnt get windrider troops

windrider troops would have made bikes worth taking instead of mostly garbage
its not like they have the insane curability they used to
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 23 2018 21:37
I hope Farsight rules aren't only useful vs Orks.

WKs I think will stay where they are forever
they're pretty damn on par with IKs
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 23 2018 21:40
maybe, maybe not
and both are hot garbage
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 23 2018 21:40
Right, i'll rephrase
they're going to stay matched to IKs now
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 23 2018 21:41
actually WKs are worse than IKs in all respects
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Feb 23 2018 21:41
I'd love to see both get buffed.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Feb 23 2018 21:41
I don't mean that in a hyperbolic way either

WKs can be buffed via psyker powers, and don't suffer from VEHICLE keyword killers.
