Adds credence to observations about Tau hugging the cover on their way in.

Change the ‘Using a Tau Pathfinder Kill Team’ section to read:

A Tau Pathfinder kill team follows all of the normal rules, with the following exception:
– A Tau Pathfinder kill team consists of 3-10 Pathfinders and can additionally include up to 3 Drones.

Change the Wounds characteristic of the MB3 Recon Drone to 2.


Good stuff :D

You do realize that our kill teams don't have access to red dot sights, right?

Underwhelming. It doesn't address any of the real issues we have.

At least more hooves on the ground, be interesting to try a larger unit. Though more bodies mean more targets and less places to hide.

It's a pretty big change, even if I doubt it goes for enough to bring Pathfinders up to a level with the core rulebook factions. Certainly, we are now the kings of disposable screens now, which whilst not the most Tau philosophy is a broadly valid use of drones. If something has to take a bullet, surely it's best that a kor'vessa does before a Shas'Ui, operational situation permitting.

Interestingly, thanks to the confirmation that new recruit allowance is determined by model count a team of Shas'Ui, 2 Specialists, 7 Cadets and 3 Drones is legal. Penny pinching ahoy!

Well yeah, i for sure will now gonna take 1-2 Recon Drones eventually to hover infront of my guys out in the open to tank some wounds. Who cares whether it's downed as long as the enemy can't shoot at my Pathfinder in the meantime. :D

"No more than half" so 6 is the maximum number of recruits now (not 7).

Also we can lose an extra guy before bottling.

When I look up the Tau file it seems to me that it's exactly the same. Could you please link the file itself?
