There is some fluff regarding us on the Regimental standard. Interesting read :)

T'ach! Just more propaganda from the IoM! As if they'd know what was going on in the Dam'o'kles Gulf?! :-?


Thanks for posting Studioworks- it's good to know the vile Gue'la are up to these days. ;)

We bested them at Mu'gulath Bay, and again at Vas'Talos.
The Damocles gulf and the Dovar system are ours.
Our answer to the imperial menace will be swift and righteous.
All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not full; Unto the place whither the rivers go, Thither they go again.

The most interesting thing to me is they're featured the Thousand Sons, Tyranids and Eldar within weeks of their codex dropping , but no mention there of the Dark Eldar or Necrons yet. Could we have jumped in line?

I also found interesting explicit mention of the 4th and 5th Spheres of Expansion. Why mention those if they don't wind up featuring in the upcoming fluff?

Also, "inability to adapt"? :roll:

If you follow the link it links to crisis suit store page :P . Yes crisis suit are the best example of T'au inability to adapt.

Opinion time- they are the best example of Tau inability to adapt. All guns have the same range and Manta Strike as the only viable tactic makes XV8s somewhat of an tactically-inflexible unit right now. :neutral:

That said, great little piece of writing!

They are not the best right now, true, and their range does not live up to what Tau really ought to be, but that's all issues with the rules as they are now. I think Bibifloris is right, in that GW means for Crisis suits to be our most adaptable, though current rules and statlines do not reflect that.

They evaded the question when some asked on the Facebook page.

Thousand suns -> Eldar -> tau -> necrons
If I am not mistaken this was posted on warhammer community or BoLS.

I still haven't seen anything that says what order they are releasing the Codexes. As far as I know its all just speculation until someone has a source. BoLS hardly gets anything right. Guess we will find out in the next week?

Well according to the Blood Angels' codex a Tau colonisation fleet is operating in the vicinity of the Baal system.
So either the 4th expansion (or part of) are back in real space or the Tau have come a long way in regards to FTL travel.

Personally I believe this is to make the Tau a more widely available tool for writing and narrative play, and not just being confined to a single corner of the galaxy.

BoLS rumor, but I haven't seen anyone else report the same nor did they have a source, so could be wild speculation too.

At this point, from what I gather, we don't actually know anything other then our codex is coming, presumably in March.

If you have ever read the "Imperial Infantry Man's Primer" Then you will get it. Its chock full of stuff like that. Orks are bulky, but its just fat and they are no stronger then a guardsman and a single placed lasgun will down them with ease. There is also one line along the lines that Tau weapons look pretty, but largely have no effect... Its pretty funny for sure!

The source for my that makes it convincing is the order they are shown in this picture.
https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/LVOPresentation-Jan25-Codex1rfh.jpg
Becaus dark elder is in fronth and tau is behind there. In all anouncment pictures the first codex realeasd is in the front and then in decending order. It could be coinsedance or planned. (If I have time I will collect the other anouncment pictures and post them)
