Welcome to Librarium Online!
On thursday i'm playing a Tau player with my Space Wolves. Its 1500 points with night fight rules.. So can anyone tell me what kind of equipment the Tau have access to for night fighting?
I have just found about the existence of something called a blacksun filter Taus players take for night fighting. What is that?
Tip 2: read or buy the Tau Codex
Can you guess what tip 3 is gonna be.
Seriously CODEX, but anyway to answer your question, the BS filter simply doubles the range a unit can see when using night fight rules, this only applies to the model using the filter and does not stretch to other non BS equipped models in its unit.
Did I mention getting a Codex:shifty:
The Tau are good Night Fighters by nature. Their Battlesuits all have access to the Enhanced Senses Universal Special Rule, and as you've heard, vehicles can get a blacksun filter. Finally, their seeker missiles and smart missiles aren't affected by Night Fight either. Markerlights can also cancel out the Night Fight effect for friendly units.
I think you're in for a rough game.
Also any model that has acute senses (not enhanced) confers the benefit to any unit it joins.
It should be remembered though that any unit firing a ML has to follow the night fight rules.
It seems i'm in for a tough fight, damn the Tau and thier technologically advanced asses. It should be fun though.
Thanks for the advice. I was playing a different Tau playeron saturday and i had the codex in my hands, i should have looked it up.
