Default Re: First Impressions of the new Tau Codex

For the first ten or so pages, with all the basic fluff etc yes. Identicle. Vespids live on a gas giant they Tau discovered, and when the Tau showed up they rolled over without a fight.

Not much new Background wise. The Space pope actually hurts your army until he dies (makes them stubborn, so you can't fall back, even when you really need to to stop your enemy from using close combat as cover), and when he dies makes all tau hit in hth on 3s and gives them Furious charge. If He dies. But is he so tough, yet horrible in combat, thats not likely going to happen. Farsight and Shadowsun are pupils, they both trained under the same master. It turns out Farsight has indeed left the Tau empire and told the Greater good to stick it. Other than that, no real changes (and I couldn't help but complain about the space pope)
