Warhammer 40k - New Tau Codex


Well I spent the weekend reading through the new Tau Empire Codex.   I must say the quality of the book is superb.   I know a lot of people complain about GW pricing, but the improvements over the old books does show.   I know there will be a lot of reviews and initial list building published all around the blog-o-sphere.  I am sure there are power builds that will develop over time, but I really like the potential for all the new options now.  

I'll be posting some thoughts as I start to get some of the new models and get some lists on the table.    For now, I am still focused on Adepticon and that means still using my old codex.   I do have some concerns that I will be the weak link on Team FCG during the team tournament.  But I am sure we will have fun and hopefully get to show off some of the great hobby work that has been going on with our club.   Stay tuned for more!

  1. I think if you had followed my boyz in on that last game instead of holding your line, we could have taken the fight to them. Once my attack was blunted, you were an easy target. That was a great learning experience for both of us.

  2. Eh, we're in the team tourney for funsies. Don't worry about it. We're bringing two old codexes and one terrible codex and one new beatface codex.

  3. Well Tau are going to be the new beatface codex... ok maybe not but they how can you go wrong with a unit that can fire out 36 missiles a turn and can have interceptor or skyfire. Who needs tesla weapons we always get 36 shots :). Adepticon should be allowing the new codex.

  4. Was just reading a review of the new codex and someone referred to the Onager gauntlet as the ass fister. Hope that one doesn't catch on.

  5. Donkey punch seems cleverer if we're being obscene.
