Well, I may absolutely hate the fluff for the tau, but those are definitely some interesting rules. I may have to start working on my human tau-count-as army.

Just putting out some ideas for criticism:

Heavily-Converted Terminators as Crisis/Broadsides

Converted Necron Androids as Kroot and Demiurg

(If they ever do it) GK Warrior Acolytes as Firewarriors, assuming they come with a lasgun and carapace.

I love high-tech.

Wow, thank you for posting this. I absolutely CANNOT wait for the new Tau! Although apparently I'm going to have to...

Would be nice. However I will still await the release of the Eldar codex more.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

All sounds interesting.

Not really ever been in to Tau but I am interested to see what form the Demiurg take.

40k 6th edition next year? already?! Whatever brings the money in I guess... I just hope they don't compromise all the 5th Edition codecies so we all start our moaning again... Did I hear rumours that Eldar would be the first 6th Edition codex released?

Believes rumours are true and is already celebrating in the distance.

Not too keen on the 'nothing is troops until unlocked thing' but other than that sweet. Haha. Palstic pathfinders is a godsend, I absolutely dispise metal models.

Well MCC, don't know if you've seen it yet, but they've announced that July sees a Fantasy expansion. Not really 40k related, but I thought I'd mention it since you've got a release schedule up top on all these threads, so you can put that down as 100%.
