Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Maybe something like hitting with photon grenades during overwatch prevents pile-in.

Re: Space marine equivalent

http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/ is about what you're gonna get. One of the largest exclusively 40k forums on the net, caters specifically to armies of the Imperium and Traitors. Xenos discussion is mostly policed.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

For one, I like to see Tau only being released next year, and after Chapter Approved. This could mean the book will already have any relevant FAQ applied to it and recude the need for (too many) corrections later. Also, the community keeps giving GW feedback, which means an even more balanced book ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

https://www.warhammer-community.com/2017/08/31/breaking-news-studio-preview-from-the-nova-open/ No Tau codex on the horizon. The next three codices after AdMech have been teased: Craftworld Eldar, Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum, and Tyranids. It's safe to say that the rumor of "AM + Tau" r...

Re: Modeling Tau Females - a discussion

If your ignore the nasal slit, then the shape of the head would tell you whether the model was male or female. The first two heads are rectangular and therefore male, and since Shadowsun's face is oval shaped, that she is female. But when you think about judging sex by the shape of nasal slit that ...

Being that it's 100 years later, maybe GW remembered to take all of the Tau prototype equipment, like the xv22, into the production phase.

Re: Dawn of War characters!

A model for O'Kais would also be a model for Or'es'ka.
With wargear options, they'd make a nice generic stealth Commander.

I haven't looked at DoW III, but if the mini's wargear could reflect each stage of equipment progression for the game characters, they could be quite points flexible.

Re: My T'au gue'vesa army ideas

For kill team and SWA games, we fluffed up a setting for some gues. World was vassalized by Water Caste, and while much of the world is happier under Tau rule, there are still dissidents, and kind of a Nazi-occupied France underground resistance of Imperials firebombing Earth Caste factories or what...

Re: The run to 8th edition

GW is using "Chapter Approved" to update the 8th edition rules/balance once per year. One has been announced for Christmas, and the Honor of Konor campaign will be used for largescale playtesting for the update. Do my eyes deceive me, or do Aun'Va's Honor Guard, who lack ranged weapons, re...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Just a heads up, I've seen some people already trying to exploit rules. Latest one was suggesting that if you replace your <Sept> and your <Chapter> tags with the same name, they technically share a faction keyword and can be allied, which, at best, is unsportsmanlike. Perhaps most depressing about ...

Re: The run to 8th edition

As noted, some leaks are in full effect. Only psykers can Deny The Witch, for what it's worth. If nothing else, the Talisman of Arthas Molach is getting a bit of a rewrite. Chances are that it'll have a 24'' range, now, though.

D is officially gone, but in a way many weapons are now D, since they can deal multiple damage per hit.

Re: The run to 8th edition

So, Drones. If Sniper Drones do not mix in with anyone then I really doubt if any drones will. It does look like they will run independently yet be able to jump in the way of nasty wounds hitting nearby Battlesuits or Infantry. Drones hanging just behind the front lines acting as wound tanks and ov...
