It used to be, but the hordes of 'noobies' who'd play them as a straight gun line vastly outnumbered those using Tau correctly, and I can well see Games Workshop being weak-spined enough to change their direction for the entire race based on what they think will rake in those shiny dollars.

It certainly won't be my dollars.

Heck, Ubersuit, Skyfire Broadsides, focus on Fire Warriors, Ethereals worth their salt, Pathfinders not needing transports, unchanged Piranhas, bricked Hammerheads... Yeah, these rumours all tug in the direction of Tau becoming one huge turret. Pardon my French, but f*ck that shit.

Pretty arrogant to suggest that the way you play Tau is the "correct" way and if GW want them played different they are weak spined.

ya that really sucks, i like my tau right now the way they are..
there are only like 4-5 things that really need to be fixed

jlay123 03-15-13 05:43 AM

You mean the fluff that GW created ?

The one that describes the Tau philosophy of "The Hunt" and selecting the perfect position and weapon from which to administer the Mont'ka"

Sounds more positional than mobile to me.

Either way I'm looking forward to a fresh take on the Tau, they have always been my second army of choice and if new 'dex is in the offing I might just build me some!

From what the rumors hint at it looks like Tau will be a terrible stand alone army, but a great unit to bring as allies.

So I'm considering this another mini release for C:SM.

Considering what we've gotten so far for 6th I expect a pretty well balanced book (at least internally) that gives us a better Tau army than we've got right now.

honestly my tau are pretty reliable right now..


maybe it's just me though..

oh and good positioning probably takes a fair amount of good mobility to get there and get to another good position before your previous one becomes compromised.

Probably but the point is the Codex says nothing about that. In fact it talks more about the " patient hunter" waiting for days.
