Whenever I feel a bit glum about my dice rolling all I need to do is find a batrep with trusty Beard. I wish we bosses could get the unedited comments after those dice rolls as a blooper segment. I do feel for you Beard. I know it must be frustrating that he wants to show off what the beta Sisters can do but his dice rolls get in the way of things. Perhaps Beard should borrow the toga dice? Or would the wrath of Bone be wrought upon him?

Guys I’m pretty sure she at least made it to the year 2360 (steller exodus) where long-termstasis technology existed….comment image

Really happy to see some different T’au units and a different sept. Sadly the Breachers didn’t show their true potential.
I hope you’ll play Breacher Fish again Mr. Bone.

And Mr. Beard, rock on with those sisters. Need more of them, even if they only are in beta.

Beard! as mentioned, you missed a few Shield of Faith saves on your vehicles against the melta shots. Your Gemini had a 4++ invo thanks for Celestine’s aura when they ate the overwatch. I would have charged the Firewarriors with your Seraphims after their descent to get them in Celestine’s invo-boosting aura. Pretty sure you forgot to bring back a Gemini with Celestine on turn 3… Also, you’ve been playing sisters hitting on 3s in combat, that’s not the case, with a few exceptions they hit on 4s in combat. Some thoughts: -Dominions with storm bolters using Blessed bolts -Faith… Read more »

Both of my Multimelter Immolaters are kaputt 😀 I love Beard more with every BatRep!

Quick question (Legitimately don’t know the answer here!)

Should those objectives be drawn two at a time, and then the one discarded? Or do you choose all Eight and discard the Four? Feel like the Latter is a little much, but alas!

Oh Beard I feel for you, but another awesome time watching TTT. Merry Christmas guys.

Why no shield of faith on the tanks???

Always great to see Tau on the channel Bone, and its been cool to see your evolving style with them. Would like to see you try out the Farsight Enclaves one of these days as well. I think they’d synergize pretty well with what you’re trying to do. Breachers, Y’vahras, Coldstars, Crisis Suits(with CIB, flamers, or Plasma Rifles)… all the models that want to be closer to their target get a nice boost with the Farsight tenet, and the Dropzone Clear stratagem they have gives them the most efficient Crisis teams out of any of the tenets. Make one of… Read more »

Cheater alert!! Beard your Battle Sisters and Dominions got a WS of 4+… only Seraphim and Celesita do hit better.
And I would like to see some testing in your next sisters report. Use the act of Faith “Devine Guidance” on a canoness next to three Exorcists than use the strategem “Vessel of the Emperor’s will”. You will get some +2 rerolling ones Exorcists. AWESOME!!!
The order of the Valorous Heart would fit in to this very well^^
And pleeeaaassseeeee remember your Shield of Faith… it is a 6++ 😉

As far as the mission, were you drawing all the cards then selecting which to keep?

I feel it reads as though you draw two at a time, opponent decides from those two, then rinse and repeat.

Those missed shield of faiths in turn one hurt my head…then the cascade of 1s hurt my heart. I think the new acts of Faith mechanic is very inelegant, just another points tally system…They need something more dynamic, not just another version of guard orders or ad mech canticles. Perhaps something that triggers on 6s or 1s…or when a unit falls to below half strength, or even specific things for different units…such as Seraphim getting FNP or the round they drop in, repentia getting a 4 inch consolidate, dominions getting to consolidate towards a vehicle that they destroyed in shooting… Read more »

Sorry beard doing this as I watch gemeni have 4+ invun in 6″ of Celestine

Yeah Beard dude. I know you said you don’t want to buy any more stuff till the plastics come out but you realy need a dialogus and some Imagifiers. I managed to table 2k points of knights just by stacking bonuses. Having a Cannoness as your warlord with the buff to SoF AND Celestine means you’re entire army can have a 4++ (3++ for seraphim/gemini O.o) that combined with the Ebon Chalice + Imagifier bonuses means most faith going of on a 2 or 3 with a re reoll just makes life much easier. Oh and Penitent engines are just… Read more »

Well thank you for a brilliant year guys. Thank you to all members of the Tabletop Tactics team, I cant count how many times your content has had me in the edge of my seat, and had me in fits of laughter. And on behalf of the community merry Christmas, happy holidays. We keenly await your return after the festivities.

I think there’s a couple of things that could help acts of faith. Yeah restoring the old ones would definitely help but they were a bit broken. Having Warp Time possibly apply to everyone within 6″ of a character is a bit much possibly. The other option could be to be able to use them more than once in a phase. That would let you use up all the faith points and give you a reason to actually farm them. It’d also give make the lesser abilities we have now better by being able to put them all over the… Read more »

MR BEARD! Gemini don’t take up a slot if you’ve got Celestine!

Phew! Where would you be without us shouting things you probably know already in the comments?? ^_^

Bone, fancy adding a bit of ta’unar for the greater good? Toga toga, tuna, tuna…

Could someone walking me through beards first turn movement phase. How did he move those transports and disemark those SoB so far?

Greater good — “as if they were also targeted”
Main rules — “target unit … cannot fire … enemy models within 1in of it.
Seems cut and dry to me.

Stupid question, just realized… why is the game not in the metric system?

I commend you for not flipping the table beard. Threw my phone twice in frustration and wasn’t even there! Beta codex – they still have NO resilience anywhere. Except Celestine and support (which got nerf’d.). Faith points? Eh, probably averages out. But supports model purchases so no use crying over it. Bone, love ya man but don’t think I can sit through another tau report. They get every gimmick, keyword, invulnerable, overwatch advantage in some way shape or form. But they suck in melee… so? FLY. Maybe I’m just bitter to see the sisters treated like that. Possibly the best… Read more »

@Turn 2 : Don’t the breachers have priority on the Objective 4 ?? (Troups vs HQ unit)

Vincent Goede

Bone Bone what are you doing! First the Vectored Thrusters mistake and now showing Fire Warriors with Pulse Carbines as Breachers in the list @14:44??

AWWWWWW YEAH!!!!!! So excited for this, thanks for the early Christmas gift! Y’all are the best 😀

Vectored Thrusters are a Tau sept only relic sadly.

Also, just a bit of tactics here: your Fireblade could have thrown an EMP grenade at the Immolator for the final wound. Or just shot at the last Dominion member.

David Davidsson
David Davidsson

You should have thrown an EMP Grenade (strat) from the fireblade and you would have killed that Immolator with your Warlord.

Bbone pls

Also, I have never seen you remember the photon grenades at all so I’m not even aware you know they exist.

Bone, If you had 6 units of troops and 4 hq why not run 2 batallions for more cp? Great work as usual ??

Beard deathwatch please 🙂
