New Tau Rumours

December 30, 2010 ·

The new Tau Codex is still a long way off, so take these with a pinch of salt.But if I'm honest, I can't wait for the Tau Empire's third sphere expansion.

New Heavy Support Platform
Basically immobile deep striked! heavy weapon and crew. Rail and Ion Cannon, and missile launcher are all obvious options here, but nothing solid with the rumor.

Assault Skimmer
Something between size of piranha and hammerhead, fast skimmer open topped, assault on disembark.

It's assault after a flat out move, and has the "drop troops along path" option similar to the storm raven.

New Drop Ship
Not the FW one, but something new. Holds a boatload of fire warriors, or a few battle suits.

New Battle Suits
Not sure if these are the "next gen" suits or just heavy suits redone with out metal bits.

Based on the recent GW Tau artwork, I'd expect a completely new look for the Tau Battlesuit. Something sleeker that in keeping with the latest FW models, the current Fire Warriors and Tau tanks.

I really miss playing my old Tau army. I think Tau Empire will be a nice alternative to playing Space Wolves and considering how far off the new Tau Codex is, I could well finish my Space Wolf army in time!

exciting rumors nontheless.
You could seriously consider PEM warriors if an assault skimmer were to become available.
Could be worth some laughs in any case.

Good luck on finishing the space puppies!

I've looked through a fair bit of your stuff, amazing detail in your paint jobs and some cool battle reports. I've started out and thats what my blogs about, I've literally just started my blog and hopefully I'll get mine as neat as yours at some point. Great job.

My tau army has gotten aLOT better thanks to the battle reports in this blog! But I am ever cursed that my brother randomly took Blood Angels because our store had no chaos space marines. Even so, I've defiantly found some of your tactics very helpful on the scoreboard. Cannot wait until the next edition of Tau, and the return of this blog!
