So, you're setting up for a strategy called the cawl castle. You're gonna have robots and destroyers all wrapped around him to get a delicious amount of high strength dakka.
the problem is that you don't really have any screens and nothing to accompany the dragoons up the field. This makes it very hard to actually win.

The point of a screening unit is to guard your lines, if you are using vanguard to go up the board I might get that, maybe add in some plasma in their... but for a screen Rangers have more range, a weapon profile and are cheaper.

Well you can't advance and charge so they'd not be doing a whole lot with those shitty lasguns. They're just guardsmen in carapace at that point.

>> No.56724368

you're not wrong. I'm using my terms wrong.
I definitely think they're better than you're giving them credit for because of the -1t, but they are largely a supporting unit in melee. still, they'll put up a respectable showing against non cc oriented units like tacticals.

Hot-Shot Volley Guns only went up cause of the Taurox Prime. Which is retarded, cause they clearly are differentiating models in those sections (based on BS but they can easily just dictate 'vehicle' weapons).

Meltaguns jumping in cost was retarded, but again it was NOT because of Scion drops, it was Elysians. Again, GW fucks the whole Guard codex because their Forge World shit isn't balanced.

Elysians were running at 8 points cheaper for a Command Squad with 4 melta. They run 32 points cheaper for 4 plasma.

Elysian plasma vets? 96 pts.
Scion TROOPS? 152 pts.

Elysian Melta? 106 pts.
Scion Melta? 144 pts.

The only thing the changes do is cripple Scion lists, which aren't good already. They should have bumped ppm up by another 1 or 2 points for Elysians cause Deep Strike: The Army is busted af.

You need to use whatever faction keyword has the stratagem available to it and it has to meet the prerequisites for that. Relics likewise, and you do have limits to how many you can take. If I am correct you can only take one from your main detachment, and any additional relics from CP use also have to be associated with it.

I know this is bait but how are tau fair and balanced? other factions get most of your weapon choices for cheaper and some of your weapons like plasma are just inferior to their counterparts. Most of the suits went up in price drastically(which most also deserved a price hike,) but most of these price hikes dont help since your weapons got increased in points also.

Different anon, but are they good in a GSC force?

>> No.56727150

GSC are complete shit. They suffered the worst from the migration to 8th ed since the reserve rules castrated their ambush. Particularly bad was how the Primus is the best HQ for ambushing (giving a re-roll) and the Patriarch is now complete shit (overcosted, no re-roll on the ambush without burning a dice, old rule was he could CHOOSE which result you got IIRC).

HQs also ambush separately so whatever unit you want to have a tag-along, you need to put 2 into reserve so 2 on the table.

Their powers suck for the most part and they get nothing good in the index, the Tyranid book gives them access to stratagems at least.

For an army based around sneaking up and going 'SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKER' it's pretty lacking in the punch, unless you roll a 5 and get a 20 man squad with 2 mining lasers and 2 webbers/grenade launchers popping up in range to snipe a character or hose a squad with enough shots to blow them off of an objective with 2 volleys of fire.

There's no way to fix their shit morale without bringing a 53 pt HQ (gives re-roll and 6+ FNP) unit or the 150pt Patriarch (immune to morale).

Hybrid models still cost 5pts each rather than the 4 they should cost to be in line with GEQs.

No special bonuses for going over 10 models in squads of Neophytes.

Anemic, expensive transports.

Cult Russ still inferior to the Guard Russ (no options beyond 4 turret types).

Rockgrinder is fucking overcosted and useless, doesn't do jack on a charge like it used to, weapons all heavy with no assault flamer or special rule to fire after advancing or ignore heavy penalties

Familiars are 12 pts to give a single bonus power per game, in the event you succeed on a psychic test. Taking 2 familiars doesn't give you extra powers twice.

They're garbage.

You can use 103 points to glue Nids and Guard together, so that's fun.

I do play them but they are pretty shit unless you're using Guard or Nids to fill the gaps. They're a shining example of something they forgot to address when the changeover happened and they fit better as a secondary force to give your Guard army ambush assault troops.

As above, 103 points (patrol) to give you a guard+nids.

Yeah, you go ahead and wake up to a clerk saying "our entire industrial sector is in revolt" and say that a bunch of dudes with mining equipment won't matter. Oh, what's that? You're sending in the PDF? Surprise! They're turncoats as well. Only for some odd reason they lost the ability to carry and kind of special weapons they previously had access to and now have obscure xenotech while they ride the tanks out of the armory.

Fuck off. the only reason the mining laser is even a mediocre weapon now is cause it gives you 2 shots for 4 more points at half damage potential so your odds go up. Doesn't make it less shitty that it costs 14pts and has 24" range.

Correct me, then.

>Patriarch is good
Your single buff spell or no-overwatch spell is not worth it. Adding +1 to hit rolls is shit. Re-rolling 1s to hit is good. That would make him far more valuable since he could buff himself. Oh wait hes not a purestrain so lol he can't! But the Primus buffs EVERYTHING.

>Wrong on powers
No I'm not, you're bullshitting yourself. Mind Control is the only good power. That's where my 2 compulsory HQs go. One magus per turn and pull it in to take control of an enemy Manticore for example.
