Again, The Greater Good demonstrates its superiority over pink Power Armour with 1970's platform soles. Whilst you have poured scorn on my erstwhile colleague, Tau2007, what you have failed to comprehend is the might of the Tau forces in the 5th. What price a Landraider when a Piranha travelling 24" can reduce it to a pile of molten slag in the blink of an eyelid?

Whilst we might look like the poster children for the battle against Anorexia, at least we don't need major work with a oxy-acetylene torch in order to use the dunny. We're smooth, suave, sophisticated, amazing on the dance floor and have enough charm to persuade Sisters of Battle to shrug off those unflattering lumps of metal and come skinny dipping with us by the light of an alien moon. What do the marines have in response to that (apart from a 3+ armour save)? Nothing except a worrying penchant for touching each others bottoms in the showers. Eat Piranha, pink skins! :fuck:

in ominous cult voice (THE GREATER GOOD). Yea but Tau get nice crisis suits with air conditioning and 800+ channels, oh and a fully loaded bar in the tanks. unlike swetty marine power armor that makes the marine smell like burnt rubber and bacon, and their bare bone mini vans aka rhinos

*TSoH puts on a pope hat and grabs a crozius*

The Tau are worth nothing but our contempt. Their blasphemy against the Emperor is fivefold-- they are filthy xenos; they deny His divinity; they deny the manifest destiny of Mankind; they seek to subvert the hearts of the Emperor's subjects; and they make war upon His realm. Their weapons are worthless against passionate faith and MkVII Power Armour! They flee before the roar of a revving chainsword and cower at the sight of drop pods streaking through the skies! Before the might of the Astartes, the Tau Empire is nothing. With the sacred bolt, they shall be purged. Thus is the fate of those who stand against the Emperor and incite the wrath of the Space Marines!


Ahem. *puts the pope hat away* Anyway, seriously, Tau are cool... but 5th Edition is not going to be kind to them. It'll make it possible to actually catch the little bastards in close combat, where they're only mediocre at best. Their jet packs may let them escape some of the wrath of a close combat unit, but the Run rule will make it awfully hard to avoid combat entirely the way that they have been over the course of 4th.

as a fervent tau player, the one thing that is a spine up my butt is drop pods, and lots of em.

well placed drop pods in the middle of my fire-bases will screw me to high heaven, yes that means i mainly play defensive tau, the table edge is my friend, but hey it works, your issue with that will be when the tau player brings in the fish's of fury.

some well placed flamers and bc's on the XV-8's could hurt that strategery some though.

anyways, just play him some more and keep on collecting so you can match him mano e' mano that would make things a bit easier as well.

TSoH -- are you sure you don't run Inquisition or SOBs? 'Cause you'd be excellent at either of them.

*has the driver crank the AC in the Devilfish*

Bah, if playing mech it will still be hard to catch us, plus fish are harder to kill now if properly equipped. Also you may get to CC faster, but no rolling up the lines through consolidation now. Besides running just means your in rapid fire range faster too I think 5th is gonna have more good than bad for us.

And ya know....*grabs a brownie and a frosty glass of milk* this ahh, "god" emperor of yours should drop by some time! We could have fun, tell stories and get to know each other. This emperor guy sounds like he could really use som "greater good".

*pulls out the psyhic hood and force staff and boards the drop pod*
My answer on the Tau situation is a drop-pod force, quick, deadly and the pods can cover your guy's back from other attacks ^^.
Also a librarian with Fear of the darkness can scare those annoying Battlesuits away

I'm not insane I just lack sanity, there's a difference....................somewhere
