I was working on a post discussing deployment in a manner that prevents your precious HQ/Elite/Heavy units from being JotWW'd off the board, as well as preventing melta units from dropping inside the 6" range bubble simultaneously. However, real life raised its ugly head, and so that is temporarily being postponed.

My grandfather passed away Sunday evening, and I will miss him. God gave him an extra 16 years thanks to a successful heart transplant, consequently he was able to witness both my growth into adulthood, and the first year and a half of my little boy's life. He was a believer, and as a Christian myself, I do believe I will see him again. Between now and then, his absence will be felt by myself and the rest of his family.

Team Tournament!

So, got a couple thoughts for you. There is a chance in my area to attend a 1500-pt team tournament, 750 pts per side. Each one has to bring at least one HQ and at least one troop choice. And, unless the special rule states otherwise, such as ethereals and morale check re-rolls, they apply to your allies army. Well, I own two armies: Tau and Blood Angels. So, I'm going to talk about combining them!

1500 Tau list, now with different Plasma !

New lists! So i've been playing around with my default Tau army list, and poking around the internet. At 1500 points, I want something which can pound the other army into dust, and advance rather than walking back. Its an unusual concept, and will surely throw off any player who plays Tau which run away and hug the edge of the map.

Crisis suits of the Fireknife variety are incredibly expensive, clocking in at 62 points. Especially at lower points, those are points that are easily needed elsewhere. However, as the only source of ap2 non-railgun weaponry usually there is no other choice. But what if there was? And what if it was cheaper? Additionally, what if you could virtually guarantee that every crisis suit wounds what it shoots at? I am suggesting, of course, deathrain suits, paying the points to tack plasma rifles onto broadsides, and running 3x2 of said weapon-bearers-of-doom.
