I went to my personal game store to put some money down on a couple items when he told me that a new Tau Codex could be coming out in a year or so, anyone else have some information on this?
When in doubt, use more genestealers!
Yes most people know this. It was first thought to be out late this year but most likely in the first 6 months of 2012 (before 6th edition comes out!)
Tau: 6K - W17-D3-L4, Orks: 4K - W9-D0-L2, SM: 7K - W7-D3-L4,CSM: 4K W5-D1-L1, Nids: 3.2K W3-D0-L2
Apoc games (mixture of armies used): W5-D0-L1
considering EVERY other army has received a new codex (after SOBs and Necron this year) Tau has to be released next year. TBH though Im going to wild guess that they'll probably sneak in another SM army in between necron and Tau though (DArk Angels?...Black Templars?).
Oh wait....I forgot the Eldar haven't got a new codex either. Because Tau have gotten so little GW love I will throw another dart at the wall and guess that itll go something like this; Necron (~Nov), SM army, Eldar, SM army, Tau and then 6th edition rules that will immediately screw the Tau.
Lol, all pessimism aside I would guess late 2012. The real answer though, considering the impending apocalypse, is that the world will be destroyed moments before my game store opens and lets me buy the newly released models. I think that's part of the Mayan Apocalypse myth actually. Archaeologists found a Sun Symbol etched right next to a flustered Etheral's head and a pictogram of an exploded Tau Devilfish on a recently discovered Myan pyramid. They deciphered it to mean "On the eve of the new Tau codex release, the world will explode. "
^^ love it XD
