Codex Prediction

September 10, 2015 ·

I have a prediction for our upcoming codex.  Without as many troop choices as our pointy eared friends, we will most likely not get three core options –that is, unless they do something with our alien allies.  I am betting on two, and one will probably look like the Eldar core formations. 

Kauyon Hunter Cadre (#1)

1 Ethereal or 1 Fireblade

3 squads of 6 Firewarriors
1 squad of 4 Pathfinders
1 Piranha
(maybe a devilfish)

Mont'ka Hunter Cadre (#2)

1 Battlesuit Commander (+ 2 crisis bodyguards optional)
Crisis Team
Crisis Team
Stealth Team

Unit Attachments would be

Crisis/stealth team
Broadside team
Piranha squadron
Hammerhead/Skyray squadron
Sunshark/razorshark squadron
Sniper Drone/Gun Drone Squadron

Firebase Support Cadre (Formation)
1 Riptide
3 Broadsides
3 Broadsides

Lord of War Selection
New Battlesuit Monster
Aun'Va (but with a few more buffs)

Wow.  I know I left off the other aliens, but now that I think abut it we are kinda limited in unit choices aren’t we…

Of course they could do another core that would involve the Kroot, but I do not see it because there really isn't a "Kroot Army" to build around it --unless they split our favorite little chicken warriors off into their own mini-Codex like the Harlies...

How do you think our new "Core" formation will look?

you missed Shadowsun and it's love for Stealth suits...
also I predict that in this codex (or as a supply book) GW will introduce Gue'vessa auxilia...

Ah yes, I certainly do miss the days when Tau could take IG. It was so fluffy and really spoke to the Empire spreading.
However, with allies in the mix, I can't see them including AM in the codex. They would just say "take an AM ally!"
It would be nice if they let us take AM as battle brothers...

Oh, those old times when 2 empires were BB... Techmarine repairing Hammerhead and Skyray... TFC firing on markers... Crisis drop on SM captain's locator beacon... An enormous amount of combo's!
