Hello fellow Shas'O's
this is my first post.
i was wondering if anyone could tell me how a farsight army does.
i am painting my tau army and am considering the enclave symbol.
has anyone had any luck w/ them?
If all you want to do is paint the Enclave symbol, then by all means do so.Originally Posted by Phase Out
However, if you're actually looking at fielding an Enclave army, then you need to be careful. You can tool it up to be relatively CC (using Crisis Suits as your CC units) which, I believe, is something your opponents would definitely not expect. It might not work 100% of the time, but the look on your opponent's faces when Farsight, two bodyguards, and a Shas'o with two bodyguards suddenly assault!
Otherwise, a Farsight army isn't much different than a normal army, except if you like a LOT of Railguns, or Kroot, etc. then it isn't the army for you. Fire Warriors, Crisis Suits, a coupla Railguns, and a pretty good assault character is what the Enclave is about - but Farsight himself isn't a game-winning CC character. Never forget that part.
I've used the farsight enclave before and they are good in small games but when you get to bigger games you will feel all of the units you can't take. Losing kroot is particularly bad in my eyes (mabye that's because i have a kroot mercenary army) because they're way better than the crappy human auxillaries, but I guess it really depends what you fight, if you fight orks and IG then they'd be good but against maries those slightly modified stats aren't worth their cost.
Well That's all I have to say.
i have one railhead and one squad of 3 BrdSds so i figure thats enough Rail guns. Im one of the type who doesnt like kroot (if the tau can't fight w/o aid they have no chance in the galaxy!). I also own one each: stealth, pathfinders. As for crisis suits I own 10!(overkill I know but I so love the models.
Anyway, I was thinking of smoothing out the Tau symbol on the shoulder of FW's & painting the enclave symbol. They no longer follow the "greater good" concept so i dont think they would show Tau empire Emblem.
I mentioned this in another post of mine, it sounds cool to replace the tau symbol with a farsight symbol but it's not just the symbol for the tau, it's also the sign of the Fire Caste and farsights enclave are still of the fire caste
Umm, Ayjaytee16 , This was was from 5 years ago. At this point, its better just to start a new thread if you want to say something!
