Re: Once again, Oh Star of Mine. - A Speculative Tau Short.

It would be thoroughly refreshing if the Tau had benefited from their own time travelling selves. I recently had a talk with one of my favorite BL writers and expressed to him my disappointment with so much Tau canonical works and he said he empathized with me but; "no one really likes anime&qu...

Re: The run to 8th edition

And a sphere fleet isnt a type formation, it's an entire age where the Tau gear their entire society to expansion. Shadowsun was reprimanded at Medusa V (i know, retconned) for even mentioning that with a new warp drive there could be a 4th sphere expansion to follow the third sphere colonies for mo...

Re: An Expanded Tau Lexicon 2017

Pretty sure it's in the campaign books but I'd have to look, that's the citation from Lexicon/bolterandchainsword. I get that there are equivalents, and once again; I appreciate your work. I personally just find it too familiarizing to have animals a human being would recognize (I prefer Star Wars f...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Yes, it is most certainly a new dynamic to the game. Strictly from a pan-faction perspective it also means that unit caps should be taken almost every time. With a high model count you have better LD, yet, with more elite units it might make sense to have lower unit numbers like the Riptide (who is ...

Re: An Expanded Tau Lexicon 2017

hey Tauman, Great stuff as always. I don't always understand why the Tau have bears and wolves and such- but I'm glad to see options there. My only note is that Mu'gulath Bay is already the name of the new Sept: Gate of New Hope. In my own understanding of Tau'sia, I would suspect that 'Bay' is Gate...

Re: The run to 8th edition

Personally I love this addition. Moral was always a little clunky, even back in 3rd, and while i'm not opposed to a little math to keep the memory demons at bay- that's what taxes are for. I especially like the example that GW made in their post, about an Eldar flyer being able to cause -1 to all un...

Re: 8th Edition: The Eye Opens

We're still filthy xenos. If anything- i would think everyone just got a little more intolerant of everyone else.

As well as it should be amidst our grim-dark-universe of darkness.

8th Edition: The Eye Opens

Here is a map of what the new 8th Edition 40k Galaxy looks like with smaller 'Eyes' opening all over. Note that the Tau Empire has the Fantasy Flight 'Hadex Anomaly' as the closest major rift site. I'm hoping that GW ends up taking all the fluff from FF's brief management and includes it and this se...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

Well, I've played about 4 games now- here are some realities for us: Bottling out is really really easy. With no real way to improve LD you need to get a specialist into your games as fast as possible. The Stealth Pilot is the only way to get a high impact weapon which is essential against some of t...

Re: Shadow War: Armageddon tactics and warband make up

I've played 4 games now and... Man is it rough on Tau. Two things that I've realized is that the Tau never do well in specialist games (until an update makes us 'op') and that GW really doesn't think that much about us. To begin with; We don't do anything 'unique', especially in this game: We don't ...
