of the way they look atm.
The Tau like many other armies are going to probably be updated for 5h ed and when GW updated codexes... chances are they'll update the models aswell.
and I think that our suits will be something they'll probably update because of their boxiness. Am I the only one worried about this?
Tau have a LONG time to wait before the codex gets updated, and there's very little chance that very many, if any, of the models will get updated. The codex was just updated nearish the end of 4th edition, along with new models such as the Vespids, Sniper Drones, and Skyray boxed set. Many, many armies are going to be (or need to be) redone before Tau, including Space Wolves, Necrons, the Inquisition armies, and Dark Eldar.
When or if Tau are updated for 5th edition (it's not a guarantee), it will be a while from now and I actually doubt that the look of the Battlesuits will change. They may rebox them with some additional weapon options, but I don't see any drastic changes to the model. The only reason the Stealth Suits changed as they did was because GW wanted to make them plastic vs. the old metal ones, so figured it was as good an excuse as any to change the sculpt.
Yep, just like they planned Necrons to get their massive boost in 5th edition. It's all part of their sinister secret plan.
And while, yes, the Crisis suits are a bit boxy, I'm guessing that it's nothing a razor saw and some glue won't fix. (Things could be worse... it's been over 8 years since the Dark Eldar saw any love I believe.)
When you consider that Marines, Chaos and IG have received regular updates while armies like Wolves, Necrons and DE have been stuck with the same codex through 2 or 3 versions of the game, then I would not rule out an updated codex for Tau on the basis if "they have already been done"
Besides, there's already wind of the Space Wolves and Dark Eldar codices, so I know Tau are a bit far off at this point.
The DE codex situation is utterly unacceptable (as is the Space Wolves to a lesser degree) but in a way you reinforce my point that the most popular codices will be updated before ones like the DE (as indeed they have been yet again) and Tau are a popular army. I hope that the rumours are correct and DE do get an update (then the Wolves) because DE players have been screwed for to long but it would not surprise me in the slightest if Tau were done before DE or Space Wolves (the potential revenue gain for an update of Tau is bigger than for either of those armies).
