Default Codex Dark Tau *updated*

Hey!! me, zero and now luy22 have just started something called an Uberdex it's like a codex but with way more information about the army it's about.* So we write it, put pictures in,* and then we post it as a PDF for everyone to read or even print out to use. All of the stats for miniatures that are already out will be the same as in the official codex but things like kroot fast attack i.e kroot riders will be totally made up rules but will not be farfetched!
We are currently working on a Tau Uberdex but three people is simply not enough! So we need your help!! If you are interested PM me and I will reply with a list of things that need done. PM me back if you want to do any and tell me what one you want to do.

There is no time limit to this project and hopefully it will be fun !!

You'll have some copywrite issues with that...you cant reprint chunks of the codex willy nilly.

The stats will be the same yeh! but the whole thing is getting rewritten, rules included and it's not like anyone will be making a profit off it.

I hate to be the big mean reality check, but stats are copywritten too. In fact, the word "Tau" and the artistic concepts therein (including background info) is all copywritten. Furthermore, much of it is Trademarked (even more protection than a copyright).

Anyway, I'm just letting you know on the front side. Check out the cover page of your 'dex...all the copyrights and trademark disclaimers are there.

It's personal use only and the rules are all different. It's like a new army almost but playable and very similar but with way more choices and characters. For instance the kroot riders can be made with a lizard man cold one and a kroot warrior and there will be a whole section with how to make the characters that are in the uberdex. Not a single character in the uberdex will be unplayable! And I could change the name of it easy I could just give it a madeup caste name.

Well, i could join in, but i have a few limitations on this

1. no camera, but am great and writing narratives on how to do it simply.
2. school has been very harsh lately as AIMS is coming up
3. I have a social life.

now other than that, i can create a universe from scratch.

Cool! The more the merrier and if you wanted to write some fluff or something then It would be OK if it took 2 months, because life (unfortunately *lol*) doesn't revolve around warhammer!
