Hey, it could happen! If so, exciting stuff, moreso about the 21" rapid fire :)

The Sept traits I'd most like to see (which probably means that we aren't getting them) are
Stormtroopers 6+ at half range gives an extra shot
Salamanders reroll 1 hit and wounds roll each time a unit fires (for hammerhead and Broadsides yo)
Raven guard + others -1 to hit after 12" (can you even see that ghostkeel :D
Iron warriors 6+ FNP

Just imagine how utterly broken that would make the Fireblade+Gun Drone combo. 12 Gun Drones and a Fireblade put out 72 shots now, and 24 hits. With the 6+ it becomes 84 shots and 28 hits. With 5 Markerlight hits now it's 96 shots and 56 hits. With that and a Drone Controller now it's 108 shots and 83 hits. :D

Now this is the one I want. MSU Railside damage goes through the roof, Rail Rifle Pathfinders get a lot better, Fire Warriors get to re-roll their Markerlight, Fusion and Missile Pod Commanders get a healthy buff, and Hammerheads get decently better too.

That Salamanders trait would be...really really good. That would actually fix the problems with a fair few units!

I'd like to see some unique ones though. Having every 2nd army with -1 to hit at >12" is getting boring. Same with the re-roll 1s etc. I'd love to see overwatch on a 5+, or maybe +1" move to infantry and +2" to battlesuits. For Vior'la, I could easily see a re-roll 1 to wound if they advanced or something. Reward being super aggressive! Farsight enclaves could deep strike within 8" and get +1 to hit in combat. The possibilities are really really exciting and I can't wait to see the units that become viable out of it!

I have a question regarding septs. If Shadowsun is T'au, she wont be fieldable with any other sept. Almost all our named caracters are with T'au.... So they wont be fieldable with other sep't? do you think they will make more Generic HQs for the other sept or other named caracter?

Technically you could have one detachment for your T'au sept characters and another for your main sept, but that feels incredibly cheesy. I really do hope we get generic versions of a few more of our characters, else any sept outside T'au or Farsight or Vior'la is pretty limited.

AM was the same apart from yarrick all their special characters are cadian or catachan, we're basically the same with T'au and Vio'rla and Farsight on his own

Reroll 1s to hit in fight phase isn't enough to really make him a viable force multiplier, but in combination with a rad sept rule? Maybe he'll be super rad.

Re-rolling ones to hit in the fight phase against Orks when within 6" of Farsight isn't enough?? :D


It's perhaps even a little too good.

You can totally field Shadowsun, Darkstrider, Aun'va, or any of the Tau characters in a non-Tau detachment. These characters all share the "Tau Empire" keyword, as do all Tau units. However, since the "Tau Empire" keyword confers no bonuses.

The benefit of doing this would be that, even though the models in the detachment wouldn't get their sept tactics, they would still have the proper keyword, letting them be buffed from other models in other detachments. This would be particularly effective if, say, Hammerheads didn't benefit from sept tactics. Here's an example:

VIOR'LA Detachment
Commander - VIOR'LA
10x Fire Warriors - VIOR'LA

TAU EMPIRE Detachment
Shadowsun - T'AU
Hammerhead - VIOR'LA

In this case, the Hammerhead wouldn't get the Vior'la sept tactic, but it would be a legal target for the Commander's buff.

I would hope for something involving our heavy support units linking a chain of shots into an enemy unit. Something along the lines of: If all units are Heavy Support and fire at the same target, then as you resolve the shooting, each subsequent unit's To Hit and To Wound gains +1 cumulatively. This would help both Sniper Drones, Broadside and to some extent Sky Rays and Hammerheads. There must be a Sept that specialises in Heavy Support??? To be honest, I would take it a a strategem alternatively.

There will certainly be one around Pathfinders for one Sept and also one for Advancing and Shooting unmodified for another sept.

Imperial Guard get a stratagem very similar to that!

I just hope that "something big" wasn't the codex. I'd be disappointed.
