Second is the post on Warhammer Community releasing beta rules for some ForgeWorld Custodes models which says they "have been earmarked for being featured in a future volume of Imperial Armour": https://www.warhammer-community.com/201 ... ge-post-2/
This makes it sound like FW is ramping up for the next Imperial Armour book now that 8th is out and established. For those who don't remember, Imperial Armour 14 was due to be called The Fires of Cyraxus and was going to be a Tau vs Mechanicum (plus Red Scorpion Space Marines). Assuming they were also wanting to fit Custodes in then the last piece of the 8th ed puzzle before they can finish it up would be the Tau Codex, so we could hopefully be looking forward to 2 books for Tau this year!
Problem is 8th is not established for the tau.
Our codex is still not out, and give that FW and GW don't communicate (fires of cyraxxus was announced as a 7e campaign, a couple months before 8e was announced), they will probably have to wait for the tau codex to come out before they even start writing the campaign book.
In what way do Forgeworld and GW not communicate? They're in the same building so that seems a bit difficult to believe. I don't see why they'd have to wait for the T'au codex as they'll already have them.
