So, one of the...difficulties with the Riptide seems to be that it's about as likely to blow its own head off as the enemy is if you use its special abilities.

I was rather wondering if you could cancel out the Gets Hot problems with the Riptide by parking it next to a Sensor Tower, allowing you to reroll any 1's on to hit. It seems to me that, even rolling Heavy 12 Gets Hot, you're likely to roll about 2-4 1's. Re-rolling even 4 ones seems like your chances to avoid any wounds is pretty good. Especially if you can then stack that with stim for FNP

Discounting their cheese lists, how powerful are the top 3 armies of 40k? Are Tau/Eldar/Daemons one-trick ponies, or do they still hold their own even without Riptide/Serpent spam and screamerstar?

Are Tau Riptides as good game mechanics wise as they look?

REASONS THE RIPTIDE IS NOT BROKEN
1. weapon skill 2
2. only strenth 8
3. nova charge riskes wounds
4. can't beat other monsterous creatures in close combat
5. not eternal warrior
6. need to purchase skyfire, does not come automatically
7. 300+ points
8. have to take a commander to get twin linked
9. not a flying monsterous creature
10. only 6 wounds, kugath the plaugue father has 7

Would taking a Riptide in a thousand point list be a dick move? Or do they only really get annoying in pairs?

Destroys half your army from across the table with impunity because of JSJ, and by the time you actually get some melee units in range it just 4d6's away and takes Linebreaker.

nothing you can do to stop that

Anyone know any good places that sell GW models for cheaper than GW?

Because holy fuck, these are overpriced.

This thing has no weakness or drawbacks, and it's an Elite slot. There is no strategy or depth or counters. You just take 3 of them and you win.

You have ten seconds to name a more overpowered unit than the Riptide.

1) Take 3 Riptides with drone support
2) Take a cheap HQ and three or four troop squads
3) Fill out rest of list with markerlights and maybe a Hammerhead
4) Game is already over LOL

barring absurdly bad dice luck you can't lose. it doesn't matter what your opponent brought because the Riptide is just so OP it counters everything. gg and be sure to gloat after the game; it is what makes you a true Tau player.

ITT we discuss the most ludicrously OP unit in the game, or for that matter any tabletop wargame ever.

>JSJ movement that can be 4d6'' on demand
>T6 W5 with 2+ armor and 3+ invuln on demand
>Can take drones to make it even more unkillable which are also T6 because fuck you, that's why
>Insane weapons for killing any and all types of units from halfway across the map, ignoring the usual MC weakness of having to get close to the enemy
>Oh what a shame I failed my nova reactor/gets hot roll, guess I'll just not take a wound because lol2+ save
>Guaranteed Linebreaker point since there's no killing it and it can jump halfway across the map in a turn
>Whats that Tau are supposed to be weak in melee? Lol nope even if you manage to get an assault unit past an entire Tau gun line in Shooting Edition, its S6 A3 and a MC so it's still going to beat your ass despite its low WS. Also you'll need powerfists or an equivalent to have even the slightest hope of damaging it enough to prevent it from winning combat.
>Somehow a MC instead of a vehicle despite being 99% metal and 1% pilot, meaning no destroying its weapons or immobilizing it or getting a lucky explode, all you can do is gradually wear down its absurdly high health, which will take every high-strength weapon you have to make it eventually fail a 3++ every now and then.
>No glaring weaknesses whatsoever; it's good against everything and there is never a reason not to take one
>Cost: Slightly more than a Leman Russ. You can take this thing in a 500pt skirmish if you're a dick
>Because that's not OP enough it's also an Elite choice so you can take 3 of them and still have your Hammerheads and Broadsides

yep, totally balanced.

How do Tyranids eat Riptides?

My friend plays Tau, he got a Riptide and I can never kill it. I usually rely on melee to kill 2+ saves because tyranids have no high AP shooting, but I can't catch it because of the 3d6 move it uses to escape. Brainleech Devourers on a tyrant are no good either because it it has skyfire with 12 assault cannon shots and always shots my tyrant down first.

Please help

Oh, you have a force weapon? Hold that thought, just let me roll my 3+ invulnerable save, then jet 4D6" away from you.

... By the way, remind me, just how did you get in close combat with me in the first place?
