Welcome to Librarium Online!
just been looking through the tau empire tactics on gamesworksop.com and after i got through it i seen the last paragraph, make of it what you want but here it is
'Roll on the fourth sphere expansion' thats the lasts sentance check it out for its context Tau Empire: Tactics: Page 5 | Games Workshop
I must of missed something....... Wheres the rumour?
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
I heard a while back that the codex is actually being written as we speak, this was back in April.
Do we know how long a codex ussually takes from this point?
hm, I'd say extrapolating any rumours from that line is extremely dodgy. I just think the author is trying to tie his article in to the fluff, which is that the tau are on the verge of/already engaged in their fourth expansion campaign (i'm not up to speed on this piece of fluff nowadays, so the fluff gurus will probably chime in with some correct piece of info).
but who knows. they might get a new dex soon, but i don't think that was a hint. GW was never that subtle... at least not in WD
According to fluff, the 3rd sphere was just halted in its tracks after the disaster on Zeist. The book Courage and Honor referred to the retracting battle lines, since the Tau are consolidating. If the next codex has us expanding into a 4th sphere, then the timeline would have to be completely reconstructed to allow it. The Tau Empire is not ready to expand again, with division in the Shas ranks and morale low.
That said, I've been hearing murmurs of a late 2010 codex, or early 2011. Nothing solid on that.
I fight for the Greater Good. Too bad for you it's MY Greater Good.
Snow Forces of T'olku W/L/D : 3-4-2... I like to think I'm learning, though.
thats why i said possible haha, could be interesting though and could coincide with the new age of 5th edition
Actually, anything "rumor" about something new with the Tau is false. They are all errors, cept the fourth expansion, that i dont know. The rest are all errors that some of the other GW language site have corrected. (AP4, Markerdrone shooting that i know of atm)
This tactica was purely something that was used for marketing the crappy units, Ethereal, Vespids, etc. Even so, it really shows how much GW cares about Tau, the blatant mistakes are embarrassing.
Turned into a rant, lol, well hope that helped.
haha funny you said that because i dont know much about tau but i dont think the guy that wrote that article does either
