Welcome to Librarium Online!
I haven't heard of it. I mean, my tau are the better of my two armies now (the other being GK). I have this feeling with the codex, I'll just be unstoppable. It makes me feel dirty, it makes me feel broken, it makes me feel like........eldar.
More sneak peeks, mostly stolen from TonkaTruckDriver's forums on MSN:
Markerlights will aparently per hit let you choose to either A) reduce the to-hit number for an entire UNIT, or Reduce their leadership by 1 pt for the turn. This is fantastic!!!!!! You can combine both effects, one markerlight per pts of effect. This means 2 ML hit an an entire FW squad is hitting on 2+!!!! Een better, if you ask me, if the ld loss. This will make pinning things MUCH easier. I imagine there's a limit on the # of pts you can reduce it by.
Vectored-thrust: and upgrade for Crisis suits, will give them "hit&run!" More awesomeness, though I imagine it'll take up a hard point, and competion for those hard points is getting pretty fierce.
Wow, those are both great. Hit & run Crisis suits - just wow. Thanks for bring the good news over here!
Broadsides are said to get advanced stability mangement- rumoured to be slow and steady.
Can you toss me a link to Tonkas MSN forum Prom? That stuff sounds almost too good to be true. The cries of cheese will rise to the heavens while I laugh uncontrollably.
As to if the new Dex will have or do anything bad, I doubt it. It seems like the Dex is pretty intent of setting right what went wrong with the Tau and breathing some fresh life into them. Will there still be units not many use, probably, but it sounds like now thats gonna be because there are just too many good units to have everything awsome in your army, which is how it should be.
The only honorable options left to we combatants is seppuku or semantics...which amount to the same thing really.
I personnaly don't see the point of giving suits hit and run, a proper commander should be able to keep his suits moving backwards fast enought to escape and or give the suit enough chance to weaken the unit (if its a smaller unit like 10) enough so they fall back.
I know unless I was fight Tau, I'd do everything to keep me out of CC with my whole army.
Anyway, everything I hear about the New codex, if I was the enemy, I'd cry broken. For instance, I'd be happy with drones just being back the way they were, but instead they'll be better.

A big theme is for new codexes is just more options, including enough rope to hang yourself with. But some of the combinations of options will DEvesatating.
Yeah, but if there are Hormagaunts..
A] it's not like I'll leave my suits anywhere near them even if I think hes going for something else.
B] I try to play my armie like a team, so a FoF could come and put a good dent in thier numbers or a Hammerhead Submunition could blast a hole, ect ect.
I like the idea with the markerlights but i dont think you will be able to use that more then once on a unit. Just seems cheesy to me.

Firstly, it's a pretty reliable quote, so your doubing it doesn't do much. Secondly, you can use them more than once on a unit now. Thirdly, lots of things seem cheezy int the new codex. GW has been spamming the cheeze in all the new codexes, in case you haven't noticed. Power creep of the highest order.Originally Posted by Saint102
I am freaking tired of you making one line posts that add nothing to the conversation. Say something useful, make a cogent point, or just keep it to yourself.
