Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

To be honest, as long as Tau feel nice and varied and decent to play for casual games, that's good enough for me.

Isn't that basically a Ghostkeel?

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 the...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I wasn't expecting any change to BS, nor really to railguns (although a big cost drop is fine), but slightly disappointed if the markerlight thing is true--maybe there'll be stratagems?

Re: Tiger sharks vs titans

I was using orders and officers for astra, which makes the lasguns rapid fire 2 and gives them rerolls. Many guns with good support in this edition is definitely superior to single fire, single weapon, especially if they are dealing this low amount of damage. Orders are good, but that's not even le...

They said they'd address Conscript spam, and now Conscripts are unplayable. Just being realistic, we may see the same with Commanders and Eldar will see the same with Dark Reapers.


Conscripts are unplayable? From what I understand they're just no longer a must-have in the competitive scene.

Re: Tau in the Jungle (Compilation of the ideas so far...)

@R.D. @khayman Both of you have good points, so I thought that perhaps rather than focusing solely on one type of green I can do something similar to what I did to my SM army - use two very similar schemes to use on different types of units. The one with rich, bold colours could be used on main bat...

Re: Tau in the Jungle (Compilation of the ideas so far...)

Come to think of it, I never thought of that this way. I was thinking of something "jungly" with strong colours, but now to think of it, strong colours would stand out, and that would be a little bad for the guys who were to hide in the bushes, but given that sometimes the warfare is unpr...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I know I haven't been checking in too much lately, but it used to be called Tau Empire right? Why is the name of the homeworld on the codex cover? Probably copyright reasons. Yeah, they couldn't copyright "tau", as it's basically just a Greek letter. "T'au" however - with that l...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Huh, so they changed up the cover a bit from last time.

There you go, shows they do have some care for Tau after all. ;)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

But its all been said before. GW hasn't really done much to instill confidence in their handling of non-Imperium/Chaos factions. Still not even so much as a word about when a Xenos Codex will be released, or if any of the other armies are getting some of their ancient Resin models updated to plasti...

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

I guess they could mean that the Fire Caste themselves don't really understand the tech, since it was all 'given' to them by the Earth Caste? But this doesn't mean a retcon or anything, as it's probably just some social media intern dredging up half-remembered fluff even if he meant the Tau stealing...

Re: Converting XV9s to look more "Tau"

XV9s are fine. It's XV8s that should be converted to be more like them--stuff like the Coldstar is partly there already. ;)

Re: Upcoming T'au Codex

Tau don't appear to be any less vulnerable to psychic powers, they just don't really register as much to the warp as humans and Eldar do.

Re: Let's Contact GW! (Round 3)

I don't think so. Playtesting for the next T'au Codex should be done. And most feedback would be taken from the playtesters and tournament players. Too bad they often have an other perspective on things like these than casual players. I think they might take into account regular player feedback if ...

Re: Tactics Against Imperial Guard

Yeah, I think in general Tau 'strategy' has to amount to 'erm, wait for the codex'. ;)
