I honestly do not understand the difference between the Mont'ka and Kauyon. For Kauyon GW writes "don't buy the new codex - buy the Kauyon for the codex + more". I don't own it because duh, I bought the new codex and I though that would be enough.
Can I use the formations from Kauyon for my "regular" hunter contingent building...? And what about Mont'ka if I, say, would like to use the drone Net VX1-0 formation for my regular hunter contingent.
Or can't I?
there is a kauyon hunter contingent force of organization chart:
core: 1+ (hunter cadre)
auxiliary: 1-10 per core (optimized stealth cadre, retaliation cadre, allied advance cadre, firebase support cadre, drone network(1 unit of drones), air caste support cadre, assigned air caste asset(1 sunshark or razorshark), infiltration cadre, heavy retribution cadre, armor interdiction cadre)
command: 0-1 per core (1 commander or shadowsun, 0-1 ethereal or aunshi or aunva, 1-2 units of crisis bodyguard)
kauyon command benefits: ideal mission commander(reroll warlord trait), coordinate firepower
core: 1+ of (hunter cadre or retaliation cadre)
aux: 1-10 per core (counterstrike cadre, rapid insertion cadre, ranged support cadre, piranha firestream wing, firebase support cadre, skysweep missile defense, assign air caste(1 sunshark or razorshark), air superiority cadre, drone net, allied advance cadre)
command: 0-1 per core (1 commander or farsight with 1 crisis bodyguard unit) or (the eight)
montka command benefits: ideal mission commander(NOTE: they have different warlord trait tables), killing blow
NOTE: the etereal council, riptide wing, and ghostkeel wing belong to neither FOC
The kauyon book has the new unit rules, and updates over the older tau codex, the formations, tau terrain rules, white scar formations/warlord trait/signature items, same for raven guard.
The montka has IG formations/cadia warlord trait/sig items, updated IG superheavies, assassin rules, farsight enclaves formations/warlord traits/sig items.
