:ninja: i just started playing tau, and i love the little bugers although ive decided to build them up to about 500 points then start another army. everyone says its a dumb idea, but i like alll the races, and personaly i want them all!!!! anyway as soon as im finished with my tau (which will be in a few months) im going to start an altoic eldar(think i spelled that wrong) army. anyway so far every altoic army i see is 85% rangers....personaly i think thats rather bland...so dose an altoic army need that many rangers to be effective, or are there ways around it...
I don't know much about them, but I do know a little. The Alaitoc army get a better ranger group called Pth-finder. And all Alaitoc armies must take two units of rangers. So you do eat up some points because of all that. I believe you can have other things in there, but you will always have to units of rangers. People please correct if I am wrong.
that is right. as long as you have two units of rangers then you can then have whatever choice you want from the vanilla list plus the option for pathfinders. also the two compulsory ranger choices do not count toward your troops choices so you can have up to eight troops. do remember however that aliatoc gets a pretty sweet rule that takes greater affect the more units of ranger you have. i dont expect that to survive the new codex though.
Everyone makes mistakes. mine was to leave her head in the fridge.
thanks knowing that helps
The biggest reason why so many Rangers are taken by Alaitoc armies is for extra disruption rolls which are dependent on the number of ranger and pathfinder units you have. In the new codex rangers will still be troops but disruption rolls will disappear so don't feel constrained by it.
