Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Ugh... I just remembered how many models I still have to paint. :dead:

I think I'm going to melt rats in Vermintide tonight, and get to it... tomorrow...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm guessing the people who are already unhappy, will remain unhappy.

The people who are already content will remain content.

The people who are already Happy will remain happy.

And we'll still make disparaging comments about squats

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Given I started this thread, took a few months hiatus from this website, came back and it was still going strong with 100+ pages... feels great for me, but I'm looking forward to it dying so we can have the coming war surrounding whether our codex is good or not.

Re: Follow-Up on the Sun Shark Bomber

At least one bomber is an auto-take for me when I play. It's good at killing hordes with the bombs, it puts out a good volume of shots, and the -1 to hit serves it well. The only thing they could do to improve it would be to let me have the option to shield it, or add another -1 to hit. Personally l...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Frankly I’m baffled Tau are released March 17th when GW told us we’d get Tau, Necrons and Dark Eldar all in March. Now it looks like they can barely fit two of the three in that timeframe. I don't recall that coming from Games Workshop, I thought that was just rumor, because I only ever heard Tau a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I thought the preorder period had been 2 weeks so far? Not complaining that it's less than a month away mind, just... that seems odd to me

Am I misremembering things?

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm having a lot of trouble with the doom here, because to be blunt: My win-loss isn't that bad. I suspected it'd be worse when I got the index, but it's just... not that bad. 50-50, to 60-40 (Some in my favor, some against) against equally skilled players? Isn't that what you should Hope for? The T...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I definitely agree here. Making Broadsides good is important. However, Broadsides are not battle tanks, they shouldn't cost 200 points. If anything, Hammerheads should be expensive an powerful while Broadsides should be lightweight shooting platforms. The current points cost for the Broadside seems...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

They are not buffing us the way we wanted. We did not want to be cheap. We wanted to be strong and expensive. Not only does this go against everything in the lore, it will also hurt our pockets bad. We already have the most expensive basic infantry kit out there and some of the most expensive elite...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Can't tell how much is a joke but squats are not the group that is allied to tau or gave them ion tech. That was the demiurg. Similar height but no one has seen the demiurg outside of their full body suits. They are closer to gnomes in terms of their tech. It was most assuredly a joke. Apparently p...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

It looks a little Tau-ish but it has rivets, or it looks a little Imperial-ish but is a little too curvy. Sound familiar? My guess is it's something like the Redemptor Dreadnought or Repulsor Tank, a Primaris machine that seems to have a little Tau inspiration. Hmmm...something Tau-ish but not Tau....

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

A lot of people seem to be annoyed by the lack of change to the Markerlight Table, but I think they may be missing the larger picture a little. The initial worry was that any points drop would just be taken up in allowing us to take more firepower, but as the damage output is going up as well to so...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The only thing that I've read that I'm Actively disappointed about here, is that we are shackled to the Markerlight Table as is. That's a huge weight to drag around, given it's redundancy with so many existing buffs from other units and everything else. That does give Some choice to the army when yo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Well riptide aren't that bad just cost way too much. A cost reduction was all i really expected, and most likely is all they will get heh. That said i picked up 3 riptide like a month ago since everyone near me was practically giving them away. Last year I picked up 3 Riptides for $60 each (Theyre ...

Either and both. The firepower of both has skyrocketed while the point cost dropped hard. Plus there's two insane stratagems for them.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'm not going to rate it because that would be too subjective. All I can tell is that I have a massive tournament coming in two months and I'm dropping my Custodes and Thousand Sons list to play T'au instead. Also buy Riptides and a couple Hammerheads (with Ion Cannons) if you don't have them. Than...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The thing is, tau do have psychers. They are called nicasaar. If GW released them, half our problems would be solved. We would have reliable mortal wounds and anti-psychers. Which, as is pointed out every time someone brings the Nicasaar up, the Tau Hide because they don't want their creepy neighbo...
