Default New Tau codex...

What would you like to see in it?

I would like to see Markerlights change to the Tau player getting say, D3 free Markerlight hits each turn to place/use as they see fit.

Some of the new forgeworld battlesuits would be nice, too.

I would like some of the cool Tau ideas like Stealthsuits were actually useful by having long range weaponry.

Also put BS4 on Shas'uis and higher in the chain of command at least.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

This makes a lot of sense. Aren't they supposed to be good at shooting, as they're rubbish in CC?

I would like Rail Rifle carrying Drones bought as Fire Warrior upgrades. Gets around the fluff requirement of no Hvy/Spec Weapons and grants them some duality. Failing that, Devilfish should be allowed Ion Cannons.

I think Fire Warriors should have BS 4, it makes up for their lack of CC.

Necrons W3 T0 L1

Death Korps W1 T0 L1

Dark Elves W0 T0 L0

I like the idea of ion cannons on the Devilfish...

Firewarriors have S5 weapons and a 4+ armour save which is supposed to make up for their lack of CC ability and Kroot are there to make up for CC inability.

Thinking about it, why not a more specialised CC unit with power weapons/rending?

BS4 everything, BS3 drones, cheaper Vespid, those forgeworld guns on the everyday Hammerhead, Kroot special character, drone special character, cc Battlesuits with PW and the option of Flamers or Burst Cannons, submunitions on the Broadsides, cheaper and better Ethereals, much more Kroot units like Trackers and Knarlocs, better Kroot Oxen.
