Plunge From the Sky: During deployment, you can set up this unit high in the sky instead of setting it up on the battlefield. If you do, then in the Reinforcements step of one of your Movement phases you can set up this unit anywhere on the battlefield that is more than 9" away from any enemy models.

Datasheet-related Stratagems

Dal’yth – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Inspired by the fieldcraft of alien auxilia, the warriors of Dal’yth are practised in subtly encircling their foes.

Use this Stratagem at the end of your Movement phase. Select one DAL’YTH CORE unit or T’AU AUXILIARY unit from your army that is within 9" of any battlefield edges. If the mission you are playing is using the Strategic Reserves rule, you can remove that unit from the battlefield and place it in Strategic Reserves.
T’au Empire – Boarding Actions – Strategic Ploy Stratagem

Even when under intense pressure, T’au warriors remain calm and resolute to break enemy charges with salvoes of fire.

Use this Stratagem when a T’AU EMPIRE unit from your army successfully completes the Set Overwatch action. While that unit is Set Overwatch it also Holds Steady.

This datasheet has Fast Attack Battlefield Role. Full list of T’au Empire units sharing same Battlefield Role follows:

Assault weapons fire so rapidly or indiscriminately that they can be shot from the hip as warriors dash forwards into combat.
If a unit includes any models equipped with Assault weapons, that unit is still eligible to shoot with in your Shooting phase even if it has Advanced this turn, but you can only resolve attacks using those Assault weapons when you select that unit to shoot with. If a model shoots an Assault weapon in the same turn in which its unit has Advanced, subtract 1 from hit rolls when resolving that weapon’s attacks.

  • Can be shot even if firing model’s unit Advanced.
  • Subtract 1 from hit rolls if the firing model’s unit Advanced.

The T’AU AUXILIARY keyword is used in the following T’au Empire datasheets:

Set Overwatch
One or more units from your army can start to perform this action at the end of the Move Units step of your Movement phase. The action is completed at the end of your turn. If completed, until the end of your opponent’s next turn, that unit is said to have Set Overwatch. Each time an enemy unit is set up on the battlefield or ends a Normal Move, an Advance move, a Fall Back move, a charge move, or opens a Hatchway, units from your army that have Set Overwatch can fire Overwatch at that enemy unit.

Overwatch is resolved like a normal shooting attack except that models can only target the enemy unit that has just finished moving, and an unmodified hit roll of 6 is always required for a successful hit roll, irrespective of the firing model’s Ballistic Skill or any modifiers. A unit cannot fire Overwatch while enemy units are within Engagement Range of it unless it is firing Overwatch at an enemy unit that has just finished making a charge move within Engagement Range of it. In this case it can do so even if other friendly units are within Engagement Range of the same enemy unit, and it can do so with any ranged weapon it is equipped with (excluding weapons with the Blast ability).

After a unit has fired Overwatch, it must complete the Set Overwatch action again before it can fire Overwatch again.
Hold Steady
Some rules will allow a unit to Hold Steady. If a model makes an Overwatch attack while its unit is under the effects of such a rule, an unmodified hit roll of 5+ for that attack will score a hit.

Select Weapon
When a model makes a close combat attack, it must do so using a melee weapon (i.e. a weapon that has the ‘Melee’ type). The weapons a model is equipped with are described on its datasheet. If a model is not equipped with any melee weapons, or if it cannot make an attack with any of the melee weapons it is equipped with, then that model makes its attacks using a close combat weapon, which has the following profile:

Close combat weaponMeleeMeleeUser01

If a model has more than one melee weapon, select which it will use before resolving any attacks. If a model has more than one melee weapon and can make several attacks, it can split them between these weapons however you wish – declare which attacks are being made with which weapons before any attacks are resolved. If the selected weapon has more than one profile that you must choose between, you must declare which profile is being used at the same time. Different attacks made with such a weapon can be made using different profiles if you wish.

If your unit is making attacks with more than one melee weapon against a unit, and those weapons have different characteristics profiles, then after you have resolved an attack with one of those weapons you must, if any other weapons with the same characteristics profile are also being used to make attacks against that unit, resolve those attacks before resolving any attacks against the target with a weapon that has a different characteristics profile. Note that all the attacks you have declared are always resolved against the target unit even if, when you come to resolve an individual attack, no models in the target unit remain in range (this can happen because of models being destroyed and removed from the battlefield as the result of resolving other attacks made by the attacking model’s unit first).

  • Each close combat attack is made with a melee weapon.
  • A model makes attacks using the close combat weapon profile if it has no other melee weapons.
  • If a unit attacks with multiple weapons, all attacks made with weapons that have the same profile must be resolved before resolving attacks with the next.
