The Tau battle suits need swords. That would make wiping the field so easy.

What weapons do you recommend I place on my Crisis Battle suits when I get them? BTW, I'm gonna paint them red for a primary color. Good choice?

:iconthevampiredio:
thevampiredio Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
red is good. are u going farsight enclave or vanilla tau?

as for the weapon choice. it really depends on the meta of your opponents and or your roles for them.

right now i have 2 crisis team.
team 1 uses double fusion guns for anti-tank.
team 2 double plasma for anti marines.

I'm going vanilla tau. I just really like red. Also, do you recommend blood angels for allies or just a regular army on their own?

thevampiredio Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
i never play with allies. so i dunno.  but any army with good close combat should be great with tau. lol

ahahah its funny. u playing vanilla tau but paint it red.
and im thinking of playing farsight but i paint mine shadowsun colors.

Opposite day! And also, the guys at my GW said Tau and Space Marines (vanilla) are battle brothers! Might make Raven Guard then. Blood Angles and tau are allies of convenience.

nope. thats back in 6ed. they fixed that in 7ed. :/
now tau has no battle bros at all while spess mahreens can battle bro with any other chapter.
 GW just cant stand xenos winning...

An army coloured like that would be awsome. Personally I would paint mine red. For the glory of Shas'O Vior'la Shovah Kais Mont'yr. For Farsight.

Farsight... Even that it took 200 years him to realize that if you start a renegade faction you must care about them, but he is still cool.

its kinda unfair cos farsight gets all the cool stuffs. fusion blades, earth caste riptide. 8 suits bodyguards.
and im playing the vanilla army what do i get? nothing!! :(
why isnt shadowsun get her own book? and in the book stealth units are 5man strong and carrys plasma rifles. :D
also entire army stealth. hahahahah

What weapons has this battle suit got I can't find that sword attachment anywhere :P, is it an old attachment? also is the gun a flamethrower or a rocket launcher sorry I haven't played 40K in years but am thinking of picking it up again as Tau are awesome :3.

hah. theres no sword like this. its my own design. :D

emm... i forgot what was that gun call. some kinda new experimental weapon. is
either a ion cannon or a air bust fragment gun. :D

lol awesome, and I like the color you picked. My Tau are the traditional color, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate other color schemes. I ordered a “XV107 R'VARNA” Battle suit and a “Riptide.” I am facing off with some well-organized “Tyranids” in the near future and need some more awesome fire power. :D

It is pretty awesome, and you can check out the experimental rules here. www.forgeworld.co.uk/Downloads…

It was designed to take on "Tyranids" but will prove pretty effective against most other armies I am sure.

As a Tyranid Player, I must say that I don't want to face that thing. Four Strength 6 AP 4 Large Blasts in one turn? At 60"? Plus it's freaking Tau, so of course it'll ignore Cover Saves. Ugh.

:icongeraldii:
GeraldII Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2014

Well it is only to large blasts, and it doesn’t say it ignores cover, so you still get your cover saves.

wow looks great!!! very deadly to bigger units. which is very common nowadays.
one thing thou it says its has heavyer armor so no jumpjet. but i dont see any improvemnt there. its still the 2+ save.
Reply
:icongeraldii:
GeraldII Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2014
Both toughness and wounds went up by one as well, so toughness of 7 instead of 6, and 6 wounds instead of 5. It used to have an integrated shield generator for a 4+ invulnerable save, but looks as though they removed that. I still have the old PDF that has it lol, being it has extra armor they should have kept that.

ahh i see. T7 W6. but no shield... so this is the nerf...
did they also nerf the guns?

It has the standard shield  of 5+

XV107 R’varna Battlesuit

A heavy fire support variant of the standard XV104 Riptide battle suit, the R’varna battle suit provides a 2+ Armour save. It includes inbuilt multi-trackers (see page 69 of Codex: Tau Empire), inbuilt blacksun filters (see page 68 of Codex: Tau Empire) and a flechette discharger (see page 72 of Codex: Tau Empire). In the case of the flechette discharger, all models in contact with the R’varna’s base are subject to the attack. Pulse Submunitions Cannon Unlike standard pulse weapons, these powerful cannon fire clusters of sophisticated micro-sub munitions that detonate in proximity to their target in a storm of separate pulse- discharges, showering the area with deadly effect. Larger targets suffer proportionately greater harm, as  they can be struck with a wave of near-simultaneous detonations, magnifying the blast and shredding them apart.
Weapon Range-60" Str-6 AP-4 Type Large Blast (5"),
Pulse sub munitions
Cannon Cluster Fire

Cluster Fire: Very Bulky models, as well as those with the ke/Jetbike/Beasts/Cavalry type, suffer two hits each from this weapon at an increased Strength of 7. Extremely Bulky and Artillery/Monstrous Creature/Flying Monstrous Creature/ Vehicle (any type) models and specifically targeted buildings and fortifications suffer 3 hits each if they are hit by the weapon at an increased Strength of 8.
Example: The Large Blast (5”) from a pulse sub munitions cannon hits models from two separate units: one comprising Space Marine Devastator Centurions and the other being a Tactical squad – two Space Marine Centurions and three Tactical squad Space Marines are affected by the blast. Against the Tactical squad, the weapon’s listed profile of Strength 6 is used as the Cluster Fire rule does not affect infantry models without the Bulky rule, and only 3 hits (one per model under the template) are inflicted, as per the standard rules. The Centurion squad suffers 4 hits at Strength 7 (two hits per model with the Very Bulky rule).

Note: The Pulse sub munitions cannon cannot benefit from the Storm of Fire special rule (see page 35 of Codex: Tau Empire).

Nova Reactor – R’varna Class
The R’varna class utilizes a variant installation of the Riptide’s powerful, if dangerous, nova reactor. The reactor follows the same rules as for a Riptide (see page 45 of Codex: Tau Empire). Declare an attempt to use the nova reactor if desired at the start of the model’s Movement phase. Roll a D6. On a result of 1-2, the R’varna fails and suffers a wound (no saves of any kind may be taken, and the wound cannot be negated by the Feel No Pain special rule). On a 3+, one of the following abilities may be used, its effects lasting until the start of the controlling player’s next Movement phase.
Ability & Effect
Nova Shield- The model’s Invulnerable saves are increased to 3+.
Volley Fire-The model’s pulse sub munitions cannon can each be fired twice. Even though these weapons are fired twice, each still only counts as firing a single weapon. If this option is chosen then the R’varna may not fire its weapons at all in the subsequent turn.
Electromagnetic Shockwave- All models within 6" of the R’varna’s base, enemy and friendly, suffer a  immediate Single Strength 2 AP 5 hit with the Haywire type.

Flank Speed-The model gains the Fleet special rule and when making a Run move, the controlling player rolls 2D6 to determine the distance moved instead of just a D6.
