Default Tau Models: Which are being re-done?

With the coming of the new Codex its to be expected that we'll be seeing new models and that some models will be re-sculpted and so on.

From the topic up top I gather that the Stealth Suit are gonna be released in Plastic Form, that the Crisis suits (and prolly Broadsides) are going to be re-worked, and that there'll be a new ethereal model along with some special characters.

Now I wanna know if anyone else out there has heard rumors of other models being re-worked, namely Fire Warriors, Kroot (Hounds and Ox to), Path Finders, Hammerhead and Devilfish.

The thing is I wanna expand my army some more before the release of the new codex and dont want my models to end up clashing (I like things to be uniform).

So anyone know?

I myself made a topic very similar to this not so long ago and the rumours boards and the Tau board have had similar discusions. Do a search and you should find plenty.

In short Crisis suits are getting reinforced ankles and maybe a few more changes, stealths in plastic and look like entirely new models, new etherials perhaps but the rest should stay the same. Most should be completely new aditions, not changes to existing models.

as far as I know, no models will be changed except for XV15 and ethereal models.
XV8 and XV88 will be new in FORGEWORLD, not GW. I hear news of plastic pirana and tetra, though.

Piranahas are gonna be made by GW now. And the XV8 and 88 are being redone so that the deficiencies with the ankles will no longer be a problem.

Plastic Tetra, that would be news.

Though I would not expect to see either of the other two FW models mentioned in the Warseer roundup out at the same time the codex is released.


Later,

There was a small hole punched in either flank – one the projectile’s entry point, the other its exit. The tiny munition had passed through the vehicle with such speed that everything within the hull not welded down had been sucked out through the exit hole. Including the crew. We never identified their bodies, for all that remained of them was a red stain upon the ground, extending some twenty metres from the wreck.”

Oh Great!
Reinforced ancles, I cannot wait!
I got so tired of my battlesuits getting the "Akilles syndrome" that I
spent a lot of time drilling out the broken ancles, inserting tiny metal rods and glue
the whole thing up with "Araldit" (a special, very expensive, carapace glue).
But now I already got the suits I need...so I will probably not benefit from the
remodeling :-\
