Re: Rumor Engine Picture Analysis: It's Tau?

Someone said that GW said that it's not armiger. Since this has a rail for you to hold on, I'm guessing it's at least the size of a stormsurge. And this just doesn't look imperial to me. It looks too finished. Everything imperium to me looks like some sort of prototype. It also definitely doesn't lo...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

The sizes of these posts is getting way too out of hand. I think it's best to just stop here.
Let's just go back to waiting for the codex.

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

At the end of the day, we've had a few nicely cryptic rumors, and a lot of speculation. Unless you've seen the entire codex, read it well and built an army list around it we can't make judgements about their understanding and goals. Just got to hope for the best until we can make a legitimate judge...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Why has this thread devolved into complaining about Tau all of a sudden? We're getting buffed, and buffed heavily. Our units are going to to be good, or cheap, or both. We're going to have a powerful army. They are not buffing us the way we wanted. We did not want to be cheap. We wanted to be stron...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Counter-point: many recent codices like Guard, Eldar, and Tyranids have excellent internal balance with nearly every unit being justifiable in an army list. Have you met the dark reapers? What about conscripts? If a Broadside cost, say, 130 points, you'd have a very powerful weapon indeed. Buying t...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Maybe you are missing the possibility that GW just doesn’t care about balance and fluff and just wants to sell miniatures? The most profitable buff they could do to us would be making everything dirt cheap without caring about redundancy or balance, internal or otherwise. Which seems to be what they...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I know it's not proven yet, but don't discount the fact well probably get a rule for hammerheads that let the main gun fire twice, just like guard, Eldar , and Nids. The only question is if it will let us move half our movement range like guard, or sit still like the other two. Czar Ziggy That is a...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Another thing to keep in mind for the comparison is that the Hammerhead has flying, and thus it can more easily escape melee(should it survive) and can even sit on top of buildings to hide from nasty melee monsters :D If your hammerhead is getting into melee, you are doing something wrong. I also n...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But not one-shot tank-killing guns . Railguns and Vindicators aren't as good anymore, while high-ROF anti-tank weapons are better. The game changes, and there's nothing wrong with that. Right now vehicles are supposed to be tough, so one-shotting them isn't effective anymore. The Hammerhead still w...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I'll reply to both of you here. The Hammerhead and Predator do not have the same role. GW's marketing might say that, but they also say that Sniper Drones have Rail Rifles. Don't listen to them. The Hammerhead is an infantry support tank that balances its weapon loadout between anti-infantry and an...

Re: Rumor Engine Picture Analysis: It's Tau?

I see it, too. But does GW have a track record hinting with edited pictures? It seems a stretch if not. Does cropping count as editing? :P And I don't know if this is related, but the hammerhead turrets from forgeworld have disappeared without a trace :eek: And someone from the forum sent them an e...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Them getting cheaper is the problem. I used to have 9000 points worth of units. I predict that they will now be worth 7000 points with the points drop. Tau increased in points massively between 7th and 8th Editions. I think my collection went from 2000 to around 2700 points. You can't compare 7e an...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Also, points drops rather then units getting stronger, screw GW, I don't want to pay double $ for the same points as marines, but since the codex is going to be a disappointment to me anyway and after the CA hype-up lies from GW, I am already looking elsewhere to get my models, still it's going to ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

GW released photos of new miniatures for the Necron and Imperial Knight codices, while simultaneously announcing that the Necron codex would be released around the same time as Drukhari and Tau Empire. We saw the release of many new Tau kits last edition (Commander, Ethereal, Breacher Team, Crisis ...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I think it’s the auxiliary race mentioned. Clearly Tau weapons. The rumor hint says it looks serpentine. Why would admech make a serpentine robot? Last year lady Atia said a new sub-faction release for Tau. Wait a minute. Have those sneaky people been teasing this who.e time? There’s an unsolved ru...

If you look at the pulse blastcannon, you can see that it has those circle things without a line going through http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Pulse_Blastcannon?file=PulseARC.jpg And that part in the back of the rumor engine bit looks exactly like the power generator on the back of crisis suits h...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Haechi speaks (or doesn't), and the Upcoming T'au Codex thread goes nuts. While I've personally enjoyed the tidbits you've thrown to us so far, I really don't envy the pressure/temptation you have right now. And therefore I will not ask more questions, as I don't want to add to it. As for my predic...
