Then I have no idea where I got my version of the rules. I will need to rewrite my list now.
Should we put these up as resources on this site, for clarity?

Thanks guys. Haha, the Yellow? It's 3 washes and 2 highlights ;) But I'll take the praise  ::) ;D

As promised, some less blurry pics and the reavers now have names!! Been ages since I did script work. I am both appalled at how rusty I've become but also happy with the results..... is that normal?

Ehm. No. That is an old version iirc.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aN9SHC6iCMfEtQLLh6AQP7JUCDA87aiX/view?usp=sharing

From the FAQ2010 fleet list edition:

Quote
Battleships
Your fleet may include any number of Explorer
battleships. Your fleet may include up to one
Custodian per FULL 750 points of Tau vessels.
Allied vessels don‟t count toward this total. For
example, a fleet that has at least 750 points of Tau
vessels in it may include a single Custodian. Fleets
of at least 1,500 points may include two Custodians.

Quote
Cruisers
Your fleet may include any number of Merchant,
Emissary or Protector class starships. It may also
include up to one Hero class starship for every other
type of capital ship in the fleet.

Quote
ESCORTS
Your fleet may include up to one Messenger class
starship per 500 points.

Your fleet may include any number of Defender
and/or Castellan class starships.

You may not have more Orcas and Wardens than the
gravitic hook capacity of the fleet. Much of the cost
of these vessels is included in that of the parent ship.

And the Custodian & Emissary can only hook Wardens.

I cant remember when I got my copy of the CPF, but I think it was in the last year so I guess its the latest version.

That's one BB for every 3 Cruisers. Any number of Emissaries or Merchants as long as there are more Emissaries, and one Protector for every two capital ships (not just Cruisers) and one Hero for every Emissary or Merchant, but there must be less than or equal (this time) the number of Protectors. One messenger for every 750 points, any number of Defenders or Castellans as long as there are less Defenders than Castellans, and Wardens and Orcas are limited by the number of hooks on the capital ships, but while Wardens can use Orca hooks, Orcas cant use Warden hooks....  :P Simple!

Right, it's been a while since I did any meaningful painting but I've managed to get the two Reavers ' almost done' (yeah, ok, I need to actually do the guns). I haven't done the writing yet and I'm still deciding on names. (Weapons and names are tomorrows/Friday's job). The pictures turned out rubbish and these are the best of the blurry bunch so I'll take some decent pictures tomorrow when the scripture is done.... but you get the idea.







I also decided on a colour scheme for my Blackshield Reaver. I'm some sort of masochist it seems when it comes to choosing colour schemes apparently... Still a long way to go but I'm getting there.

Cool.

Have you checked the latest Tau rules?
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1wZMEK2NGKfdnNo1b-iEHovsG7KqDgdBq

If you are basing your fleet on what is known as the CPF (Forgeworld models) it isn't that difficult tbh.

One Custodian per full 750pts.

Protectors and Emissaries as you wish (same for the 'old' Merchant)

One Hero per one other cruiser (the same battlecruisers are picked in the Imperial battlefleet Armageddon fleet list).

Castellans as you wish
Wardens 1 per grav hook; but not on the 'old' vessels
Orca's 1 per grav hook; on old and new vessels.


I have one Aquan here :) pm me.

The Aquan is my Protector..... the problem arises when I want a second one! But the CPF Fleet list must be the most complex list in the game, by far..... Any number of x, but less than y, one z for every 3 w types ships, Orca hooks can transport Wardens but Warden hooks cant transport Orcs.... I had to make a sheet of the various rules to keep track of what I can and cant take!

I have now ordered the Dropfleet Trident. I will get the Yamato ship a bit later. Pictures when I have them assembled with comparisons.
