should ethereals be able to take tau jet back?
because i see on pg7 of tau codex theres an ethereal with jump pack?
I don't think so, they are best hidden with fire warriorsand moving around the battlefield in a fish IMO, the jump would also have little purpose unless you give him an XV88
If you look at the illustration he is just deploying from the ship, I think once he touches down the jump pack would be discarded and he would take his place with a FW squad for protection. The idea of an Ethereal jumping around the field with no armour seems a mite to suicidal for something as valuable to the Tau moral as he obviously is.Originally Posted by ReaverRider
I don't even see the point with etherals, why use them??? But since he can get all equipments from the armoury so I belive that he can get a jet pack if he wants to, but IMO he is much more useable INSIDE a fish couased the price of failure rule
well said arakiaz, i dont get ethereals, therefore i dont use them....
The Ethereals is nothing more then a living piece of wargear for your Tau army that allows you to reroll leadership tests. That's his point.
Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.
I like your words.... you have just turned the ones who saved the entire race (if I got the story of Tau right) into some kind of equipment... that is niceOriginally Posted by The Celestial
WOAH!!! never realized that before, you think in the codex revision they will let a FW team with shas'ui to buy a aun'ui aun'la or aun'vre as wargear, like a weaker version of the HQ ethereals, that accompany your FW squad and give the squad the effects the ethereal would have?? that would be awesome....
It's very true.Originally Posted by Arakiaz
Anyway I use Ethereals without any wargear. Like The Celestial said, they're already a piece of wargear. Not useful in direct combat but still useful nonetheless.
