I'm officialy giving up on Tau and going on a 40k hiatus. I really feel no pull to want to play anymore. The game just isn't fun anymore and with all the crazyness comming from the new nid codex things are going from bad to worse. I plan to come back to 40k but it will be as a World Eater Lord.
I've put my army up for sale. I'm moving on to Fantasy; going to play Bretonia.
I may come back to the path of the greater good, nobody knows. But if I do come back I'll do what everyother sheep on this forum is doing and play mech Tau and fail miserably at that. :rolleyes: (If people are wondering why I hate mech Tau so much it's because it's too popular, everyone does it, and it works better then trench Tau.)
PS: If people were waiting to know if trench Tau actualy works: Short answer- not really.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)

I'd say Mech Tau represents a vocal minority
Agreed, it's popularity is growing, but I wouldn't go so far as to say "everyone does it". Fourth edition places a greater emphasis on mobility, and as such, people are responding by including more mobile elements in their armies. But a fully Mechanized Tau army is still not the norm.
But hey, do what ya gotta do. I too have become frustrated with 40k recently (although on account of over-the-top competitiveness rather than the inneffectuality of my army) and have purchased a BFG Tau fleet as a change of pace. Good luck with your Bretonnians!

Hell, I don't play Mech, but my Devilfishes do awsome damage compared to my Hammerhead! Stupid Dice!
I just play Tau, i have 3 FW squads, 1 Kroot and a Gue'vesa, a stealth team, a crisis team, a shas'O, 1 hammerhead 6 Pathfinders and hellava Gundrones. I try to do what I nee to to get the win!
But In the end it is YOUR decision.
I didn't really think Mech Tau was all that popular to be honest. I mean, Tonka's a huge advocate of it, but other then that, I can't really think of too many names who are "prophets of Mech Tau."
I've never actually phsyically met someone who's played Mech Tau or even heard of it.
Meh. Well, good times to ya Soviet. See ya down the barrel of a pulse rifle.
Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.
hey just one last thing, i think before you call it quits for good, try a diffrent army for a few games. i was getting frustrated with tau, and latly ive been playing my deathguard, and wow its such a diffrence, especially since i can live in CC.
i still like tau, but i think most of use need a change of pace from time to time
