Hey in the "old" codex they have stories about different Tau stuff. Maybe in the new one or one in the future, the Tau will encounter a TITAN whist on a campaign to spread the greater good. Hopefully the tau will master this concept of technology and make their own, but it wouldnt need a specialized crew, so it could be mass produced and thus vanquish all other life forms in the galaxy and ultimantly fulfill their destiny to have everyone live in harmony... Oops little carried away there.

As for other alein species in the tau like new vespids and kroot GW should decide if Tau are srong enough to live without any somewhat decent CC mercs. if they decide to keep aleins then at least make them a little better like power weapons (for shapers) or other ways to mount their own heavy and elites.

For christ sake dont bring up the subject of power weapons and Tau, I tried once and never again.

The Kroot Shapers should have the option to loot stuff, they are Mercs afterall. Maybe not something as complex as a powerfist but I see no problem with giving them a simple power weapon, or an evicerator.

Tell me I'm wrong if I am, but I saw a guy using a kroot mercs list and his shaper had an evicerator. It wasn't uber all killy powerful, but it sure made the kroot actually worthwhile rather than being a useless meaty lump.

And Tau have already encountered Titans to my knowledge in the Damocles crusade.

lol so you think that the kroot are a meaty lump?...lol kroot are better than fire warriors for their point(plz don't jump on me for that rikimaru,plz don't)they are great in forest,ruins ect.. and they can be used as a countercharged unit.kroots are the most versatile unit the tau can have so plz don't say they suck it hurts my ear.even though a shaper with eviscerator or power weapon would be sweet :shifty:

They're not worth they're points currently. The fact that they are slow speed wise and Init wise means they are crap. Even if they counter charge a unit, the enemy (such as hormagaunts) eats them before they even get to strike. Also they are incompatible with the fish of fury tactic, being unable to selecta transport.

On top of that they have a crap armour save and are unable to benefit from the LD reroll taht the etherreal confers. Not to mention their gun pales in comparison to pulse weaponary. If you want to capture an objective, you might as a well use stealth suits. They are unlikely to get shot off it and they can laydown the hurt firepower wise. Big Woop, they are strength 4 and get 2 attacks each and can infiltrate, stealth suits get that too, plus a myrad of other benefits.

Perhaps with the new codex they might become useful, but at the moment firewarriors are a better choice

lol wow onilairi,rikimaru and other people in this forum are going to eat you for saying kroot sucks.
did you ever look at how cheap kroots were?you get 10 of these cheap but efficient warriors for 70 point!!!saying that their armour suck is noobish,are you one of these people who just makes them run across the board unsupported and not in cover.kroot are made to be in cover,especially forest.their guns are better at killing marines for their point so don't tell me that 'their guns pale in comparision to pulse rifles'.the thing about stealth is dumb because stealth and kroot have nothing in common.stealth are great i know i have 12 of them but kroots have their uses.if they COUNTER assault they won't be hit because the enemy is also fighting the fire warriors so they won't get hit as much.
lol you think fire warriors are better than kroots for their point?well lets look at it for a min
-kroot basically have a bolter,while it is weaker than the pulse rifles they kill marines better for their point
-they use cover better
-are cheaper
-actually have some CC capabilities.
you can say that their armour save sux,true but if you use cover wisely they shold have a 4+ inv save

OFF TOPIC!!!!!

Tau faced several Titans before, it's nothing new to them.

I don't see the Tau using Titans, the closest they got is the Mantas, and I don't think we'll be seeing them in 40K.

Plus look at it this way, Titan = Person, Other Army = Swarm of Bees

Swarm of Bees VS Person: Who wins? The Bees win either because the person dies, or he runs away! :D

This only indicates you don't know how to use Kroot. Kroot with a patch of forest placed in the center of the board are not only worth it, they're kinda broken.

And kroot are 75% for the shooting 25% for a mob assault.






In regards to Mantas, they are already in 40K, I have the rules from Forgeworld. But like titans, you's almost never get to use them.

Come now, riki..

Several people before you posted "please stay on topic".. and I will do the same. Please, stay on topic. Comments are probably accepted, as long as they are relevant, and this one wasn't.

Stick to what the topic's about. ^_^

Thanks!
