the same will probably happen to me.

the tau fliers would make great chinork counts as, or maybe even proper blasta bommers.

- Aliens are out. No Kroot, no nothing.
- There will be some kind of supplement with alien allies. With Kroot,
Vespids and a race described in "The Greater Good" novel. I don't know
when, I don't know if it's a codex or WD thing or anything.
- Broadside Railguns can choose each round if: Str 8 Ap1/ Str 6 AP3 blast
- Tank/ Riptide Railguns have Str 10 AP1, I don't know about the fire
modes.
- Tank commander gives skyfire to the tanks

its good the rail guns are more than one shot wonders.

youd think tau being so advanced would have come up with the need for special ammo types.

The more recent aircraft pictures definitely look better than the first ones. Not that I disliked the originals, but they look better from new angles - first look we've had at that bottom turret on the fighter as well, looks like an array of some kind of pulse guns or rail rifles maybe? Still not entirely sure what the wing struts are meant to be doing... and they don't even seem to merge into the design in any way, since they're differently shaped and sit at an odd angle to both the wing and tail. Will probably look much better without as long as they're easily removable.

First decent look at the new broadside looks good - I'll be getting one to top up my existing squads, but have 4 already so not sure I can justify much more (and not sure how posable the kit is - we've not seen any different poses yet as far as I can make out).

New character models look decent too. Overall, I'm going to be a very happy (and quite skint) Shas'o next month...

I think the paint-jobs in the pics are less than flattering to the models so far - they just look a bit too cartoony IMO.
Also, anyone else notice that the Tau characters look considerably more angry than they did previously. Less "placid space hippy", more "angry blue alien".

I'm quite liking the way the wing tips dip, front and back. Don't think I'll be having anything with a gun so precariously on the front though.....
