I'm new to the game and I recently begun collecting and playing Tau, I like the fluff, I like the models and I like the fact that nobody in my regular playing group plays Tau. In fact almost all of my gamer mates tried to steer me away from the greater good and I kinda like that too.
I wasn't actually aware that Tau were getting an update so soon, and now I'm kinda hesitant to expand my army much further, knowing a bunch of new, cool stuff will be released with the new book.
I guess I should mention I'm yet to play a proper game with my Tau, so I can't really comment on their tabletop performance. I've been told they suck but I don't have much luck with my Traitors anyway, so I'm no stranger to defeat. I am a little disappointed to hear of the Kroot and their reputation for dismal failure as I recently got a bunch on the cheap. Still, one of the tables I play on regularly is covered with forest terrain so I might still give them a run.
