  1. As if Tau needed another reason to form a gunline in the back and camp the entire game :P

    1. It's not like you swim in options when it comes to forming your tau army, you can jump around in suits and have people scream coward at you, or do the gunline and have people scream coward at you, what people want is for me to charge in with every unit i have, giving them the victory but saving myself from the "disgrace" of being called a coward

    2. Assault Tau are the best kind of Tau. If you aren't close enough to have the enemy's blood splash on the muzzle of your Pulse Carbine when you pull the trigger, you aren't close enough. X)

    3. Play some Maelstrom missions. Solves that in a hurry.

    4. I approve with TheRhion. I used to never play Maelstrom missions, but I was forced to do so at a tourney, and it was a lot of fun and really mixed things up for me.

    5. @IomIom Well maybe that's the sign of a flawed design philosophy.

      If you run into someone who complains about your army in the morning, you ran into a whiner. If you run into people complaining about your army 365 days a year, maybe your army is the problem.

    6. I play almost exclusively Maelstrom missions, they have been the best part of 7th ed in my opinion. It really helps keep the game moving and makes even historically static armies at least make some kind of effort to move.

      Also, if you read the rules for this formation, and actually most tidewall formations they actually encourage movement to get your guns in the right place at the right time, definitely not aegis guard by any means.

    7. My tau army is nothing compared to what you see on compedetive lists, i run kroot shapers fire warriors broadsides with RAILGUNS, hammerhead stealth suits darkstriders and ethereals, and I play malestrom like 90% of the time, the thing is that if i only had one unit, it could be bad compared to other close combat dudes, but just something, or options for a close combat weapon on a shas'ui, anything would do.

    8. You cannot change what others choose for their armies or what they say about yours. Tau shoot. CC army guys hate shooty opponents. Let them taunt the Tau all they want as they are shot.

      There is your variety.

      That said, Tau have more playable options now than ever before, so get ready for new kinds of love-hate. Just keep your tear-cup nearby...

    9. @iomiom, I love my kroot, but they kinda suck on their own. I have a friend who has a special IG infantry-only list with penal legions and ogryns... Sometimes it's fun to play my Kroot army against it just over a cold beer, nagging wives, and a lot of silly shit. Gnarlocs, machine guns, randomness, and just plain fun. Unfortunately that kind of fun in a game is virtually unknown at my local FLGS where it is too often dominated by win-at-all-costs mouth-breathers... (who,are sometimes ok)

  3. Doesnt look that powerful to be honest. I predict no one will ever see this formation. Gunlines and optimized stealth cadres are too good.

    1. I think this makes gun lines better... Less static. But then again the more campy gun lines may open up holes for Unexpected guests....

  4. Just want to say a thank you to whoever originally uploaded this. Formations are a bit hit and miss when it comes to games, but they still shouldn't be limited to a set number of people.
