If these rumours bare out it sounds to me like Tau are going to be a much improved army with alot more flavour to them.

Hopefully we should get the white dwarf leak within a week or two as I really want to see what the 'Ubersuit' looks like and what its really called... Riptide is such a silly name.

More Tau stuff from Faeit212 and an interesting tidbit about allies:

Quote:
Tau and their Allies, and Farsight


We have been wondering now for quite awhile what is going on with the idea of a Allied Supplement, or Mini-dex that has been rumored in the past. There are many indicators or little hints that this might be on its way (gretchin, genestealer cults, and more), but we really have nothing solid.


Here Shaso Iceborn touches on that release, and I am not sure it looks good for it. He then goes over and into a brief overlay of some Tau bits. I am hoping that we can discover some more information about what is happening with this supplement in the near future. (or more info saying its going away)

Please remember that these are rumors, and like always require a little bit of salt.

via shaso_iceborn over on Warseer
The mini ally dex has to my understanding been incorporated into the codex at the beginning of the book and will no longer be a separate compendium.

There is a Kroot HQ, but not in the conventional sense and he cannot command "Tau" forces (unless they bring back Prok but I have heard nothing on him)

Farsight will have a new model, it looks similar to the gamesday one.

Rail Rifles, Rail Guns, and Rail Cannons are the way they are distinguishing different rail type weapons in the new codex.

There will be 2 "new" special characters, one we may have seen before. (Aun'shi I think but do not have confirmation)

Thank you fellow Sororitas! It seems lots of people like the Ripetide Suit but don't like the Bomber (Shark). So, I'm sure more will creep up. I'll keep trying to find stuff!

The riptide made me pee myself a little bit, they really haven't done much to the crisis suits though, bomber isn't too bad, at least its not as ugly as the stormraven.

Also my bank manger and wife are gonna hate me sooooooooo much

When evil seeks to overcome good
And firepower ovecomes the spoken word
Then death shall rain from the sky on wings of blood
And retribution will be swift

Well thinking about it this puts at 4 new books in 4 months this year. At this rate we may see upwards to 9 new 40k books this year (2 months for Fantasy and December being a non-updating month rounding out the year with current rumours).

Now that may change but at this pace all the armies could be updated by the end of 2014.
