This ( >>29605613 ), but also blocking units. The wise Shas'O knows that, most of the time, he can't kill his opponent's entire army in one volley, and if he finds himself in a position where he *must* destroy his opponent's army in one volley or face destruction, he has already failed.

The dangerous element of an outflanking opponent isn't that they can assault you - it's only a small fraction of the opponent's army, after all, and you probably have enough firepower to wreck it. Rather, it's that the shooting you'd need to wreck an outflanking unit is badly needed elsewhere.

This is why we make liberal use of blocking units. Your top two are Piranhas and Kroot; both of them cheap (Piranhas come with free gun drones, which are great sacrificial units as well). You want your opponent's army to arrive in your killzones in bits and pieces, enough for you to wipe them out and then reset for the next target. Depending on the situation, it might be more advantageous to block off the outflankers with a sacrificial unit, and continue shooting at his main army, or block his main army, and then shoot the outflankers.

In a way, outflanking enemies do your work for you, by neatly depositing an enemy right in that sweet 15"-18" band of murder. It takes a skilled opponent (and good rolls) to use his outflankers and main army to do the kind of time-on-target attack that presents multiple imminent threats that cannot be effectively blocked or destroyed quickly enough to matter.

Heeeelp /tg/,

I'm trying to paint my first 40k models and I can't even get the primer shit right. It looks all water and shit to me when I try to apply the first base primer coat thing ( I don't even know the painting terms). I've tried to look for stuff on youtube but I'm having trouble finding references for such a noob like myself.

If anyone is wondering I am trying to paint the marines that came with the warhammer 40k paint set. All I have is the basic brush and whatever colors GW gave, which should be good enough for dark angels.

It is okay Gue'la if the tiny child contributes to the greater good they may be saved!
If not...well...I hope you like Rail rifles.

This right here
Just cause it has smash and it's attacks are AP2 doesn't translate to "This unit might be viable in melee" Keep that tau mentality of melee bad, shoot good in your head

How are the Kroot with the new tau codex?
Cause I was talking about the new Tau codex with someone and he says Kroot are absolutely useless and just garbage.
I only glanced over them in the pdf but I can't really tell myself being a new player

So, I haven't been around /tg/ for a while
Been busy with some other things so I haven't been able to keep up with anything WH40K related

But I was wondering
What are the early opinions on the new Tau from what we have seen so far?
Do they seem better, worse, or pretty much what they use to be?
