Welcome to Librarium Online!
with all this new tau stuff coming soon, (all looking great) im thinking of starting a force of about 1500 points, i have played with and against tau before so i know basicly how they work normally. but i dont want a shoot heavy army. how do i get around this, and can i make an entirely kroot and vespid army.
the reason for not wanting any actual tau is cos i dont want goats in yellow suits fighting for me, oh the shame
move aside manling this is dwarf work......
chances are you will be able to make an all Vespid army, but not with Kroot, Because they are mercenaries. you'd need a kroot/vespid HQ, and then your army would suck.
TAU PLAYER - GREY KNIGHTS PLAYER - WOOD ELVES PLAYER (kind of)
"Grey Knight terminators aren't 'good.' THEY'RE F****N AWESOME!!"
In a Tau army you're always going to have to have an ethereal or XV8 suit as HQ
The kroot list is available here
Its not to bad if you like that sort of thing. As for all vespid I think you'll have to wait a while until they do a chapter approved one, just wait and see what Santa brings you in the new codex.
I would really like to see a Chapter approved Vespid commander! That would rock! If you don't like the yellow suits then don't use them... or better up, just don't paint them in the yellow/brown tone. There are plenty of other suggestions in the codex. And you can always use Stealthsuits instead of Crisis as Elites. :hmm:
Remember remember the fifth of November... Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason... Should ever be forgot...- = Always watching = -
I h8 the yellow scheme 2, but you could think of ur own. (radical eh?)Originally Posted by snorri
If you dont want a shooty army, then dont collect tau. The new vespids are shooty (sm killers) and kroot are T3 with no power weapons. Also Fire Warriors are and always will be 1+. Basically either change your ideas or go for kroot mercs or another army.
