Played a game against Tau yesterday.
I found his skimming tanks to be nearly impossible to destroy.
My question is: Can you get a penetrating hit on an skimmer which has moved more than 6 inches in close combat. In close combat you can only hit the skimmer on a roll of six and therefore I would say that you allready have the negative modifier for the vehicle being fast. If you also can score a penetrating hit there is no meaning in assaulting a skimmer at all...
Also note, that since non of his tanks are fast, he is giving up shooting with most everything, and any immobolized roll when he is moving 6+ inches kills the vehicle, even if it has landing gear (since LG needs to be use at the start of his movement turn).
But yes, all hits are glancing ig he moved more than 6"
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
However remember that getting an Immobilized on a skimmer that moved more than 6" has the same effect as Veh destroyed.Originally Posted by urbanknight
Plus everyone who is onboard is going to be a hurting puppy making plenty of saves.
Im pretty sure if you buy a multitracker or one of those upgrades it acts as a fast skimmer and you can still shoot.Also note, that since non of his tanks are fast, he is giving up shooting with most everything, and any immobolized roll when he is moving 6+ inches kills the vehicle, even if it has landing gear (since LG needs to be use at the start of his movement turn).

Look for Divine Guidance under the LO top site list!!
Yeah, your right, multi tracker on tau allows you to move and shoot over 6'', which is pretty nifty ... and just makes me realize the pwnage of tau vehicles. hah.
And there you have it...Originally Posted by MiketehFox
To kill one of his vehicles you have to:
Shooting: Hit the vehicle, penetrate the armour (front 13), roll a six or double 5. Thats it. Pice of pie right
Close Combat: Hit the vehicle (roll a six), penetrate the armour (front 13 ie roll a five or six if you use power fists), roll a six or double 5.
As you see this makes it almost impossible to kill one of his tanks in CC. I charged him with a ten manl squad of Blood Claws with three power fists. Result? One glancing, weapon destroyed...
I killed one of his TRANSPORTS like that... His tanks has to many weapons... ;POriginally Posted by MiketehFox
