Rumor Forecast- Cloudy with a Chance of Tau

By Rob Baer | March 8th, 2013 | Categories: News / Rumors

The portents are staying true as all signs are pointing to April as the third release for Tau.

Of course we’ve all heard this before, and just last week it was Tyranids that were rumored to be coming in April.

So who knows really?

I do have to admit the speculation below along with the rumors in my Faeit Commentary article from earlier in the week, makes a convincing pro-Tau argument.

Personally, (and this is just my .02) I’m hesitant to buy into an April release for Tau, as traditionally GW prefers to drop xenos releases late in the year or in January. So maybe we’ll just get lucky and maybe they’re saving that slot for Eldar?

Rumors aside look for some reviews next week from me on the rest of the Dream-Forge Games releases, the Death from the Skies book, and some great KR multicase foam sets that I really think you guys will appreciate. -MBG

It Seems That Tau are Inevitable (Updated)

There are times when the goodness (or the Greater Good in this case) just keeping on coming. More Tau rumor bits are filtering through our community, and when we keep on seeing this many hints, it just seems the puzzle pieces are all starting to add up.

Does this mean I am on the April release wagon when it comes to a Tau codex? Well, I at least have one leg on the wagon, and one leg still on the ground. Of course that means that I am being dragged down the road. So here’s to looking at a hopeful Tau codex Release sometime before I get hurt.

There was some later developments today about the release of Tau coming in June. These are listed below from shaso_iceborn. Its also worth mentioning as well that Hastings had predicted Tau in April as well.

The owner of my local store told me yesterday that he was unable to get a copy of the current Tau codex to put on display. When he pushed he was told that he could not get one because there was none any more, he should wait until next month to order one that there should be plenty then.

I play Tau myself and I am beginning to start to believe 🙂

Eliath pm’d me with some info from WD that supports the idea that Tau are pretty imminant and also that it seems the FW suits are still compatible with the new kits

Could well be nothing but in reading through at least a couple of articles in this months White Dwarf, there are references to Staffers working on Tau forces.

Jeremy’s article starts with him working on a FW Battlesuit and later someone is mentioned to be working on a Tau force.

Likely nothing, but are staffers getting their Tau forces moving prior to release… only time will tell.

Today a friend of mine working in management for a hobby store received a call from his supplier asking for all tau hammerheads, broadsides, and codex to be pulled from the shelves and returned to gw.

Reposting to avoid confusion, Tau will be released in April alongside a new Farsight model and new Kroot HQ.
