I expect an XV22 commander as well, to unlock XV25 Stealth Suits as troops.

Hmm lets see what we could have :

Fire Warrior HQ = Fire Warrior troops
Crisis Suit HQ = Crisis Suit Troops
Stealth Suit HQ = Stealth Suit Troops
Kroot HQ = Kroot Troops
Vespid HQ = Vespid Troops
Demiurge HQ = Demiurge Troops
Drone HQ = Drone Troops :D

Something like this could allow you to create a really fluffy army.

New Tau FAQ out doesn't really change much but it's nice to see them getting an update. However, does this mean they wont get a new dex any time soon?

I cant really see them doing away with Firewarriors as a troop. If anything I would imagine it would be more similar to how Farsight's rules work. Take a Crisis suit commander and you have to take at least one additional unit of suits would or suits become an alternate troop choice in addition to Firewarriors. Also different types of HQ could have restrictions on how many of a unit type they can take. That way they wont alienate to many of the current Tau players by making most armies obsolete/illegal.

I do like the idea of Drones being bought as their own unit then distributed through out the army as support.

If that means the max unit size on Drones goes up, I'll be a damn happy camper. Drones are awesome, my favorite tank popper.

Dude, no.
Tau Commanders ALL wear Crisis Suits, it's just how it works. Fire Warriors will be from a Commander
Crisis Troops will be from Farsight, almost guaranteed.
Stealth Suit Troops will also likely be from a Special Character.
Kroot will certainly be a Master Shaper or whatever it's called.
I don't expect Vespid will be able to be troops, but I hope they do!
A Drones, no MCC, just no What would the HQ be? A Drone wearing a hat?

Aww, come on! Wouldn't it be cool to be able to field an all Drone army? So that you could finally get some use out of those hundreds of drones you have lying around unbuilt because they are useless right now

HQ Drone could be one of those big ones from FW

Id be more interested in seeing more than just Kroot Warriors, or Kroot Doggy woggys or Kroot on Kroot Cows.

I wanna see codex mother fucking kroot; and not just some "unlock" character allowing units to be taken as Troops.

Well they did that once, and it was a pretty boring codex in my opinion.

Necrons aren't AI, the Necrontyr used to be an organic species that were almost whiped out by the Old Ones. They discovered a great primal intelligence the size of stars and made humanoid statues out of living metal that they then managed to pull these entities into, these became the C'tan.
The Necrontyr were plagued by a cruel sun that made their lives miserable causing cancers and all kinds of illness, because of this they had a very short lifespan and started to hate and loathe all of life. With the C'tan they went back to war with the Old Ones and nearly won. The C'tan who now craved sacrifices in the millions realised that they were extinguishing life in the universe so they convinced the Necrontyr to be infused in living metal bodies and then sleep in tombs on lifeless worlds to awaken millions of years later when there was new life to harvest. This is how the Necrons were created.

They are not AI, they are exactly the same as the Core from Total Annihilation. Once living beings who have left their mortal flesh for metal immortality.
