As a BP alternative to the Supremacy, you could do 4x (something like that) at AP4/AT5+. I did the same thing for the flamer on the land train, as using BP instead would have meant it lost some special abilities on the barrage (due to BP combining rules).

I am one of the no BP in epic Tau. It’s the way it is. 4x whatever sounds good. Especially if that target was markered up.

Paying a premium sure, but 50 points is loss of an upgrade somewhere else. Not so painful. Tau almost always require an activation edge. The premium should be activation limiting. Not so far as to cost you an activation for it, but to restrict the number of activations in the end.

I put up a poll and a thread specifically for discussion on the multidriver. We can pick up the conversation there.

So I just had a stonkingly fun 2000 points game against Blip's Ulthwe- the best kind of game, a close one that you still win :P I took a very suit heavy list and had a blast. The list felt very different from Third Phase Tau, but still very discernably Tau. Will get a proper BatRep typed up with photos shortly I hope!

For now, the list I took was:

Pathfinders- 4x Pathfinders, 2x Devilfish, 3x Tetra- 275
Crisis Cadre- 6x XV8, Shas'El- 325
Crisis Cadre- 6x XV8, Shas'El- 325
Heavy Battlesuits- 3x Riptides, Shas'El- 350
Stormsurges- 250
Supremacy (POMD)- 275
Razorsharks- 200

Excellent Resa! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. I'm looking forward for hearing your thoughts on the list, seeing how it played, and your thoughts on the MD.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, at this point I'd like to see in game play before making more adjustments. If people have an idea they'd like to put forward or an OP issue to raise, I'd encourage them to test it. I won't demand a full photo, step by step, bat rep at this point, but even a copy of both lists with a short narrative of thoughts, impressions, and performance would be helpful.


Seems fair. While there are things to discuss you do not want the list to remain static and die. reports are a necessity for that.

I cannot promise one in the next month or two as i have battle reports on queue already, and a broken pc, but later, yeah.

@Abetillo Thanks! I appreciate your willingness to help. I know everyone's gaming time is valuable, and I'm glad you're willing to use some of it for play testing.

I got lucky this month and got a couple games in I need to get around to posting about.
