Haeichi over on Advanced Tau Tactica was more than happy to share some details of the new Tau codex, claiming to have seen it already.
Now, this is a rumor so don’t forget to add plenty of salt.
I saw our codex… It’s meh =/. And I’m not allowed to say anything about it =[
I apologize for saying that everybody. I was drunk and wrote without thinking first. You’ll find really good changes in this codex.
I lost track of this topic for a while, but Arka told me someone dropped a rumour about Gun Drones not having saviour protocols and Rail weapons being the same price.I can tell you both are false. Although there is a small change to saviour protocols.
I’m not going to rate it because that would be too subjective. All I can tell is that I have a massive tournament coming in two months and I’m dropping my Custodes and Thousand Sons list to play T’au instead. Also buy Riptides and a couple Hammerheads (with Ion Cannons) if you don’t have them.
Either and both. The firepower of both has skyrocketed while the point cost dropped hard. Plus there’s two insane stratagems for them.
The change to Saviour Protocols is something similar to what Crisis Bodyguards do and Shadowsun’s rule with Stealths suits.
Sorry, that was a bit confusing. Savior Protocols is the same as before, but happens only on a 2+.
If people are already complaining about T’au, here a few negative things haha.
1 commander per detachment
No changes to the markerlight table
No improvement to BS across the board
Railguns are the same
Don’t get alarmed though, there are far more upsides that we will get to soon-ish. I’m just waiting for GW to officially announce the codex to get more into details.
The upsides will come from massive point drops on base costs and weaponry, and massive buff to weapons characteristics. Sometimes both, which can make for some crazy stuff.
Like a Heavy 18 S6 -1 2dmg gun for 35 points
*BAD WORD DELETED*, this is why I didn’t want to say anything.
I like ATT, and I love T’au, so I’m sharing things with you as a form of excitement. I don’t want that *BAD WORD DELETED!* all over the internet. I guess I’m out.
Aaaaand, that’s it, people from my community have noticed. I’m screwed.
