Re: 8th edition

Remember it's still speculation at this point. They've dropped a few bombs and I bet are waiting to see how the community handles it. I would imagine that strength modifiers would allow for variety amongst different weapon layouts that 'just' AP denies any kind of variety. With entire rules on cards...

Re: 8th edition

Yes that's what that means. I asked more about this mechanic and it basically means you'll have more of a card or page for each unit that you have which will have all of it's rules (and what those rules mean/do/behave) in a single place. More conversations indicate that there is going to be updates ...

8th edition

Hey everyone, Been a busy night but I've got a heads up on the next edition. There have been rulebooks circulating for a few weeks now and while it's been tempting to say something it would have probably have been rendered speculatory, but; this evening at Adepticon GW is making official announcemen...

Re: Which sept world is Shadowsun from?

True- there's just a lot of current BL writers that muddy the waters a little bit with mentions of other Septs. Honestly, I figure she's from T'au, it makes a lot of sense and, you're right, the GW paint scheme would imply she's most certainly from T'au. With her other sisters that were high-ranking...

Re: Which sept world is Shadowsun from?

Then come up with a reason why she has childhood memories of Vior'la and ancestrial property on T'au...

I'm postulating not writing a thesis :roll:

Yeesh.

Re: Which sept world is Shadowsun from?

Or, perhaps Shadowsun is part of a society within the Empire that travels constantly. We know the Tau arent specifically long lived and that there are Fire Caste stationed within the Kor'vattra. The Kiru family could have been one such collection of Shas. This could have been a further reason for Au...

Re: Comments on the Official Tau Timeline

It's very likely that by the end of the Time of Ending, or whatever they're going to call the oncoming 8th Edition, we'll see a slide forward into the future so maybe that explains the Genestealer entry, otherwise it's just more sloppiness from GW. I preferred the FF fluff, but, it looks like that m...

Re: The Academy Project

Hey- just checking in. I was waiting for a couple elements to help out with the articles but it looks like I didn't get them. Is help still needed or has the ship sailed?

Re: (BFG) Tau fleet- The Great White (and Tan) Fleet

Without wanting to divert the conversation- I still have about 2500-3000 points of Tau BFG both on the GW SG side and Forgeworld if you, or I guess anyone else, wants them just PM me. I wish I could have kept up with Battlefleet gothic, it being my favorite game... of all time, but everyone in this ...
