as much as I dont want this, If Tau are to get a Primarch tier character...

 

I expect the Tau to get an "Avatar of Puretide"

 

with the puretide engrams that were put into a ton of his disciples heads, I expect one to live and believe that they are puretide.

 

 

-------

 

I'd like a build your own COmmander build*****

 

1. Select your Model equip it with rules

 

in base form he is a Cadre fireblade, with access to addtional drones/weapons.

 

2. Select the armor type:

- COmbat armor

- Stealth Xv25

- Ghost keel

- crisis commander

- Devil fish

- riptide

 

3. Select load outs, special accomodations**

- can take a weapon system from another suit at a cost

- Take up addtional hardpoints based on the size/cost

 

4. specialized integrated system options to boost either the hero character or become a buffmander

Inb4 our Primarch tier character is Farsight, Shadowsun and Kais going all megazord on us. teehee.gif

 

But nah I don't expect any primarch tier character for us. I do however would like to see Kais with an absurd amount of weapons going all ham on our opponents lol

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

actually, I keep forgettign about Kais, would be a nice touch to have him be the commander of the 4th expansion sphere then bring him in as a veteran tau that specializes in fighting deamons/unrealities.

 

 

edit----

 

I actually think Kais would come back in a heavily modified Ghostkeel that couldnt go stealth, but was altered in a weapons platform, with gun drones!

 

he just likes more and more weapons

Honestly, with grey knights getting a HQ grandmaster in nemesis dreadnought in their codex release it wouldn't surprise me at all if GW threw Tau a bone and set it up for commmanders in ghostkeels and/or riptides.   I just wish they would come with unique wargear options for that option.   All bets are off for this edition, and it simultaneously thrills and terrifies me as a new tau player, haha.

A Commander in Ghostkeel would be frigging awesome considering my T'au Cadre is designed around scout&recon with lots of Stealth Suits and Pathfinder. tongue.png

Even without unique Wargear options, a BS2+ Ghostkeel with more than those crappy 10 wounds sounds reeeeally good to me.

Some random thoughts I just had on Marker lights:

 

Marker lights Generate Marker Light points.

 

- If your army has 10 marker lights, it generates 10 Marker light points each turn.

- Marker light points can be banked

 

EX.)

In round one you generate 10 marker light points, you use 4 marker light points and save the rest.

In round two you generate 10 marker light points, so now you have 16.

 

- If a marker light model is destroyed, you no longer generate points from that model.

 

Marker light spending:

 

You can spend your marker light points to do various things, some marker light abilities can be activated out of turn, not unlike Command points.

 

 

Cost 2: Reroll hit rolls of 1 for Tau empire models attack this unit

 

Cost 2: Destroyer and seeker missles fired by this unit may use it's BS instead of the BS on the missles.

 

Cost 4: Tau empire models attacking this unit do not take negative to hit modifiers when moving and firing heavy weapons or advancing and firing its assault.

 

Cost 4: Target does not gain bonuses to hit from being in cover

 

Cost 4: This Tau empire unit may JSJ this turn. (must have a jet pack)

 

Cost 6: add 1 to the to hit rolls for all Tau empire models attacking this unit

 

Cost 8: Selected Tau infantry  unit may add 10" to there weapons range for this shooting phase. (path finders, Sniper drones, Strike teams only)

 

Cost 10: Selected tau unit being charge may fall back D6 inches

 

Cost 14: Destroyer and seeker missiles roll an additional D3 mortal wound damage

 

Cost 20: Place D6 destroyed gun drones on the field in the deployment zone.*

*: this may be done during your opponents turn, (can add ablative wounds to your tau empire models for a chance to have your unit/hero survive another turn)

I don't think Markerlights will work like that or else they would've been changed to something similar in the Index already.

I buy ten Pathfinders and hide them behind a wall all game to farm points. My opponent has no way of shooting at them.

That would definitely be a nice special character...however shouldn't he be dead by now? I mean like most special characters apart from FSE and his more or less immortal/dead friends lol
