Welcome to Librarium Online!
Is it possible to take his faction without taking him?
We are having a massive battle at our local club and i am taking ym friends tau models which gives me like 20 suits and i wont be able to use them all maybe like 15 all up so i was wondering if i could use farsights factions without him or modle him wiht just like a chainsword on his arm to count as the dwan blade?
I guess so, but only as a house rule... The only way you can field 20 XV8's is with Farsight. At least that is the way I see it. And that includes taking all available bodyguards for both farsight (+7) and the other HQ (+2) and 3 squads of 3 XV8's (no stealths)...
It gets quite expensive regardless!!!!
You can model him however you like, but you can only put the extra suits in his squad, so you need to use his rules. No one's going to fault you if you don't want to use that particular model, I don't even like it much.
sweet thanks guys! now for the big medusa v battle 2k of battle suits gunno be blasting everybody away! oh and the two small squads of 6 fire warriors...
Do you have 20 crisis suits? I curse ye as I want to do the same :-)
i have about 6 and i am getting my friends models as he has decided to play as space marines so i have like 25 suits and i am allowed to take multiple lists if i cant get the points so a farsight army and an infantry army!
Farsight+7 is 8Originally Posted by Mystweaver
1 other HQ (Farsight counts as 1) and 2 Bodyguard is 3
Then 9 for Elites.
So you can field exactly 20 Crisis Suits in a Farsight Army. Keep in mind this is going to cost probably all of your army saving 120 points for the required troops (2 squads of 6 Fire Warriors). Or 6 Fire Warriors and 10 Kroot (130 points). . .
. . .Be right back, I wanna go plan this army:yes:
Ok, you can outfit yourself with Farsight, 7 Bodyguards with Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Shield Generator and Hard-Wired Multi Tracker, 1 Shas'O with CIB, Plasma Rifle, Shield Generator, and Hard Wired Multi-Tracker, 2 Bodyguards with Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Shield Generator, and Hard-Wired Multi-Tracker, and then 9 Crisis Suits with Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, and Multi-Tracker for around 1700, which means you can actually put out two full Fire Warrior Squads and still be under 2000.
What is your points limit?

Half Gods are worshiped with Wine and Flowers. Real Gods are worshiped in Blood.
Blood for the Blood God! Beer for the Bronze Keg!
This is quite correct Doctor... I have a 2000 pts Farsight army planned exactly like this and have had so since the day I bought him (last week)...
Unfortunately I only have 9 crisis suits (excluding farsight) so I dont have enough :-(
