    Cool batrep, yeah AV14 works really good against Tau ironically, I really like both of your guys color schemes!

    O.O Dem terrain pieces doe……….

      Yeah, I think the AV14 vehicles really have a place now in the current meta.

        With all the Str 7 spam going around, absolutely. Hell even a smash atk from an MC on has about a 50/50 chance to penetrate(as you guys saw).

          Yup! And it laughs at Wave Seprents, moves troops around and provides mobile LoS blocking cover, which is awesome.

          I just wish he couldn’t be one-shoted and he be a chieftain.

            Yeah… why do all my single melta shots miss, but everyone elses single shots instantly wreck my Land Raiders?!

            Dude, it was crazy, the Monolith survived WAY longer than he should have!

    Love the terrain pieces, love the Tau player’s(Steve?) attitude, this is the way Tau are meant to be played!) I personally wouldn’t go with 3 riptides, but i always make sure there is plenty of terrain(good for the crisis suits too) makes for a much better, more dynamic game. Another great battle report, cheers guys.)

      Glad you liked it! And yeah, both the terrain and Steve’s attitude are awesome. He is fun to play, Triptides and all!

    Where did Steve get the foam board for his terrain? Hobby lobby type store?

    • Reecius December 12, 2013 3:59 pm #

      You can get it online or at a store like Michaels. It is called Foamcore.

    • Adam December 12, 2013 4:12 pm #

      Most decently stocked art supply stores carry foam core.

    swap a crisis team MP for fusion and if your going with enclave suits do not deploy like a gun line control the LoS blocking terrian and remind them what life was like before “true line of sight”.

    great looking terrian do you do tutorials?

    • Reecius December 12, 2013 4:00 pm #

      Steve doesn’t hit the forums much, and he doesn’t do tutorials, unfortunately.

        It’d be great if you could do a feature on the pieces if Steve brings them to the shop when they’re finished.

        • Reecius December 16, 2013 8:32 am #

          He and i will be working on some video tutorials together, soon!

          • Alex December 17, 2013 8:39 pm

            Does he have a blog at all with WIP pics?

          • Reecius December 18, 2013 7:55 am

            He doesn’t even have email! haha
