Re: About 'Crisis of faith'

You forget to mention his Marty Stu, Numitor. We have to wonder why he even in this book. His presence does nothing except making Scar Lord Chapter Master look even more pathetic and miserable than he would be without him. But still, every Imperial character and narration itself is contractually obl...

Re: About 'Crisis of faith'

It pains me to see, that such poorly written book gets how much - four or five treads on the ATT already and discussion in topic about The Greater Evil - really good story by Peter Fehervari died almost immediately after it was started. This is why we can’t get a good tau stories. Phill Kelly books ...

Re: The Greater Evil

Hey, guys, do you remember this mysterious tau from Fire Caste? Strangest of all, he had once encountered a lone tau warrior wandering the jungle in a hulking battlesuit. Judging by the cracks riddling its tarnished ceramic plates the armour had seen better days, but it was easily capable of annihil...

Re: The Greater Evil

Is the Seeker performing some kind of mindtrick on Adibh? Personally, as I understand this it was backward. Fai’sahl, or should I say "Broodmind" who act through him performed some kind of mindtrick on her and when Seeker broke this charm with his helmet light it created some kind of back...

Re: Weekly Discussion #1: What happens to Gue'vesa once they join the Tau?

And if not for Chaos, they do know about Genestealer Cults which is basically the same situation for T'au. ;) is there any lore around genestealer cults and T'au? I wasn't aware of that and if so, would love to read it Resent short-story "The Greater Evil" by Peter Fehervari is pretty muc...

Re: The Greater Evil

Just finished reading it. Huh, long awaited Return To Tau by Peter Fehervari. Truth be told, I already gave up waiting for this story - I really thought that it would come out together with our codex. What a surprise. First of all it is not really "short" story. And as expected from Mr. Fe...

Re: The Tau Sorcerer

Just last night I was reading one of the books and there is a Tau Sorcerer. The Water Caste Tau Por Malcaor also known as The Water Spider is a Tau who can use warp powers. No, he doesn’t count. He is a demon who possessed tau due to incident with Geller’s Field Generator, not tau. And of course da...

Re: Can Gue'vesa take part in Ta'lissera?

Whoa there fellas! Gragagrogog I didn't take offense at Val'Sitsor's comments, but takes for coming to my defense. It's okay guys if wedon't agree on topic. Having said that Val'Sitsor you missed my point. 1. The new Tau lore ignores ta'lissera, because (IMHO) GW wants to make the Tau bad guys in W...

Re: Can Gue'vesa take part in Ta'lissera?

I still fail to see where you find problem and what exactly you want to proof with these quotes. Wut? It's just a friendly conversation about the topic, nothing more. I don't perceive even the slightest animosity here... Sorry, I didn't mean it as offence too. English isn't my native language and i...

Re: Can Gue'vesa take part in Ta'lissera?

The 6th edition codex directly says that ta'lissera is closest equivalent to the term family (and there is nothing that indicate that only Fire and Earth Caste can have "family" bonds). I still fail to see where you find problem and what exactly you want to proof with these quotes. GW inde...

Re: Can Gue'vesa take part in Ta'lissera?

Isn't ta'lissera common to all tau, no matter the caste? Earth and fire castes were presented in codex as an example and I see nothing that prevents air caste crew or flight unit to undertake the same ritual. And there is several examples that water caste also use ta'lissera ritual in literature (fr...

Re: Crisis of Faith Book

First positive score appears on goodreads. It isn’t a good sign. I probably should pull myself together and actually write a review. Ignoring Enemy Of The Empire misgivings is a rational choice, but I’m afraid it has long-term consequences. If they can’t relocate a competent writer (like Guy Haley) ...

Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

Just finished reading the book. Not in the Kelly defence, mind you, but still - tau that kill other tau was not just shaken or gone mad. He was possessed by demon. And the beginning I felt motivated – motivated to write very long and cruel review on goodreads and even thought that it can potentially...

Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

Yeah, Guy Haley and Peter Fehervari know how to handle tau stories right, indeed. However, while I pretty much despises the previous book, I must admit that not everything was completely wrong – Phill have some nice ideas and concepts, but just can’t made them work. And mocking this book through ret...

The end is near! Crisis of Faith will be out soon. And as a highbringer of it there is interview with Enemy Of The Empire on warhammer community. Surprisingly it is not that bad. It looks like Phill actually read some from ATT, or may be he actually always understand couple important things, but jus...

It should be something like 16 S5 Ap-1 (ATS ofc) shots per model in T6 with deepstrike if they will be transllated to 8ed in the same manner as crisis suits. Dropping th...
