The Tau Project: Day of Reckoning List



So, having got home from work I've put together a list that I hope may at least put a fight against Blackmanes Dark Eldar, I know he's running Hesperex and webway portals, so I'm gong to have my hand full if they get near. However, I hope to keep them at range, and IF they get near, I have a couple of failsafe options...

Pulse Carbine and Marker Light Designator, Shield Drone 15pts

Rail Rifle and Target Lock 10pts each x3

Update: Made a huge gaff with the Pathfinders, in that they MUST have a Devilfish to go with them, which a) I don't have and b) would put me over 1100pts. So, I've dropped them and included the Kroot instead.


Total 1027pt 1022pts

This is the first Tau list I've put together, ever. So if anyone has ideas for tweaks and/or changes then please feel free to comment. Also, i know there are no heavy options on this list, as I dont actually have any yet, though a Broadside or two would be nice! Anyway, I have 4 weeks to build and tweak this list so any help is welcome! 

Thanks Zebulon

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)


Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.


Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.
