Default Farsight- A Tau Codex Supplement ETA July


Just heard the new at my local wargaming club that Tau are getting this Farisght Enclave supplement. Personally I cannot wait.....

Faeit 212: Warhammer 40k News and Rumors: Farsight, A Tau Empire Codex Supplement

Speculation to new rules involving:
- possible stats for the special farsight bodyguards,
- Melee- orientated signature systems
- Free bonding rituals for all fire warriors or stubborn.
- My personal favorite is the possibility of a riptide farsight with melee specialty...
-crisis teams as troops
- 4 Fireblades per 1 HQ choice....

Obviously it is likely that kroot and vespids etc will be forbidden in any farsight lists similarly to previous codices.....

Anyway, despite the hefty pricetag im excited by this and I think I will still fork out the 30 quid for the hard copy when it is released just to read more about this awesome part of the Tau Empire.....

Happy Hunting!

Ooh, wasn't expecting any supplements, but a Farsight one is surprising since he's in the core codex

From what little we've seen so far Supplements take what's in the core codex and just tweak it a bit and pour on the fluff, alternate missions and paint schemes. It'll be interesting to see what they choose to reveal about Farsight in that book.

I didn't expect this either. Makes me wonder if they will go back and do a Chaos Marine supplement.

I wouldn't doubt it. The real question is who will be getting the first one for them.

- My personal favorite is the possibility of a riptide farsight with melee specialty... Specialty I can see happening - something like it uses it's feet as melee weapons or maybe if it has a shield it could use it as some form of slightly improved CC weapon. I can't see it being given rules for a specialist CC weapon as the kit just came out without one and GW seems to be moving more towards giving all the weapons options in a kit and has in the past added options to kits that currently don't have Dex entires - ref Storm Raven when it was released.

-crisis teams as troops - it woud make sense as to why an option for this wasn't included in the main dex

- 4 Fireblades per 1 HQ choice.... If Farsight is about CBS's then this doesn't really make fluff sense. Still could be worse.

Armored Company Supp would be cool. I see Catachans first though.
