Oh look, at Farsight Enclaves 2000 point army list. Made after watching too much Mobile Suit Gundam and wanting to make an entirely battlesuit based army. No puny fleshy infantry footslogging or clumsy tanks hovering over the battlefield here, only robots and drones.

HQ
Commander Farsight + 2 bodyguards w/ plasma + missiles + shield generators + bonding knives + 2 gun drones

Troops
3 battlesuits w/ plasma + missile + bonding knife + early warning override + 2 gun drones + shas’vre (one bodyguard replaces the shield generator with Talisman of Arthas Moloch)
3 battlesuits w/ burst cannon + flamer + bonding knife + counterfire defense system + 2 gun drones + shas’vre (shas’vre replaces burst cannon with cyclic ion blaster)
3 battlesuits w/ fusion blaster + missile launcher + bonding knife + target lock + shas’vre
1 battlesuit w/ airbursting fragmentation launcher + burst cannon + bonding knife + counterfire defence system + 1 gun drone

Heavy
3 broadsides w/ missiles + smart missiles + bonding knives + advanced targeting system + 2 missile drones
3 broadsides w/ rail rifles + w/ plasma rifles + bonding knives + velocity trackers + 2 missile drones

Fast Attack
4 marker drones
4 marker drones
4 marker drones

Elite – Riptide w/ heavy burst cannon + smart missile system + earth caste piloting array + stimulant injector + 2 shielded missile drones

Totals 1998 points, while I'm not making this for competitive gameplay is there anything in here /tg/ considers particularly terrible?

So I want to get some of my friends into 40k.

The problem is, I haven't plaaaayed 40k since 5th Ed, so in a way I'm educating myself. My tactical way of thought doesn't include allies, or flyers, or fortifications, or, really, many of the new rules.

So this is a twofold question:

1. How should I go about teaching them to play (Using vassal, so money isn't the problem for now)?
2. What should I know so I can help them play the game better overall?

Farsight is big pimp'n as usual, glad they've kept his suit looking relatively outdated compared to other Tau.

>>24113632
This fucker should be Aun'shi, it would make perfect sense. Was he ever confirmed to be Kais from the Fire Warrior book? Because I remember when the game came out and he was just some Mon'tau; then Forge World or White Dwarf put his stats up for fun, shit was insane.

So /tg/, I've recently been running a 600 point Tau army using the battleforce kit and I've had a lot of fun with my space communist weeaboos.

I want to expand the army further and I'm thinking of going with Commander Farsight because the idea of flooding the board in more crisis battlesuits than you can shake a melta-gun at is hillarious.

The only quote that the Tau have that's any good.

> Each must find their own way. If those in our heartland had witnessed the savageries of the void as have we they would know this. The hand of each of the starfarers is turned against the other; none will join their strength together just to see their ancient enemies prosper. Neither should we.

This is Farsight breaking the 4th wall and telling the Ethereals to get grimdark like the rest of 40k.

So, we agree Farsight is the best tau right?

Tau player here, can anyone help me with brainstorming some ideas for my army?

So far I just have them finding some Old One tech and Lizardmen from Fantasy, then they're not heard from for a long time.

When the Tau finally contact them, they basically acting like the Dark Eldar but with Aztec themed gear, pure rage at anything they find Daemonic, and kill any Ethereal they find.

They also may or may not be traitors who are led by the Slaan.

Yins are fucking doing it wrong.

It's simple. We get Junji Ito to do the artwork and some part in the story. Namely due to his creditably for making Spiral and Gyo.

We get Yasuhiro Imagawa to direct due to his ability to make badass choreographed fight scenes.

We also get Jam Project do help with the soundtrack but instead with an orchestra.

Along with Junji Ito, we shall get Phil Kelly, Adam Troke, and Gav Thrope to pen the story.

With this team, we can't fail.

There's a rumor the Tau may get the Squats. But again it just a rumor.

Still like the other anon said, we've got awhile.

In Apoc games, am I allowed to use all three?

Cause I'm thinking of running a Seven Samurai build, but I need help in both tactics and modelling.

Should I make the seven models and Farsight look more weaboo and make them more like samurais and what do I exactly put in one?

Should I also use other Hero HQ choices in Apoc games like Shas'O Rymr and Shas'O Rly and complete the trinity of the only badass characters in the entire Tau arsenal?

/tg/, I heard somewhere that there might be a new Tau Codex coming out soon. If this is true, what stuff would you like to see in it?

>New improved Crisis Battlesuits, vehciles, etc
The Tau understand how technology works, unlike the Imperium, so what better way to show that than giving them new technology?

>New races joining the Greater Good
This will allow for a greater variety when building up a Tau army.

>Conflicts between the Tau Empire and the Farsight Enclaves
I think that Commander Farsight is a pretty cool character, and it would be nice to see him go up against his former comrades.

ITT: rank the 40K factions from your favourite to your least favourite. Here's mine.
1. Orks
2. Imperial Guard
3. Necrons
4. Tau
5. Chaos
6. Dark Eldar
7. Tyranids
8. Sisters of Battle
9. Eldar
10. Space Marines

This is coming from a guy who's only experience with 40K is with the DoW1 games, the 40K wiki and lurking /tg/.

Wait so, if the Dawnblade is a 40k Frostmourne, does that mean it will give Farsight power over the 40k's version of the scourge, the Necrons?
And does that mean the Dawnblade IS a Ctan artifact?
