Little Confused about Exemplar of Mont'ka[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm a little confused by the following advice:

#**Alternate Take: RAW, this means that Cadre Fireblades can Advance and Shoot Markerlights at no penalty. Simply declare an advance, move like an inch, and then laugh your ass off as you break the game by shooting a Heavy weapon on a 2+. Technically rerolling ones if you really want to be a rules lawyer, as you can reroll ones for units that remain stationary near an ethereal who has declared storm of fire. Just know doing this automatically confers both Rules Lawyer and That Guy status upon you(as you justly deserve). In fact, it's probably the most underrated Warlord trait in the Codex.

How exactly does this break anything, and how does it work? The trait doesn't make it so you count as having stood still, it makes it so you count as not having advanced (ie you move and advance but only count as moving normally for shooting). When you advance and move, you still move, you just increase your movement characteristic by D6 before moving. Because of this, you'd still take the -1 to hit penalty for moving and shooting a Markerlight and you wouldn't get the re-roll from an Ethereal. -- Triacom (talk) 08:06, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Mont'ka allows you to be considered stationary while doing all this low breakdance stuff.

If you use Mont'ka then yes, but this wasn't about Mont'ka, it was about the trait: Exemplar of the Mont'ka, which doesn't let you be considered stationary. -- Triacom (talk) 06:54, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Converting article to 9th[edit]

I'm neither an expert at T'au or 9th edition, but the general tactica and strategies seems to have some artifacts left over from 8th.

That's because all tactics articles are ports of the previous edition and get adjusted according to the new edition. If that hasn't fully happened here then that means nobody has gotten around to it yet. -- Triacom (talk) 00:56, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
I think we can use the template from the Necron's 9e Tactics, at least as far as primary and secondary objectives are concerned. -- Shadowjim12 (talk) 12:39, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Gifted Pilots, Sophisticated Command Net, and wound rolls of one[edit]

I've been looking at these, and compared them to the Primaris Lieutenant stat sheet. RAW it says you can only reroll a wound roll of one, while the Lieutenant's stat sheet says reroll wound rolls of one. Essentially, the Lieutenant allows plural rerolls, but these sept tenets do not seem to do so. Am I reading this wrong, thoughts? --Lord Of The Lemmings (talk) 18:28, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

I think it's supposed to be all wound rolls of 1, otherwise it would say "a single" to wound roll of 1 like the old rules used to say for something like Master-crafted and its to-hit re-roll. -- Triacom (talk) 03:33, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
