What seems to be changing are these:

Crisis suits (minor ankle supports)
Broadsides (same as crisis suits)
Stealth Suits (total redo)
New Etherial Models

Kroot, Firewarriors, Drones, Tanks and the rest should not be changing so buying those wont matter either way. The stuff being altered is up to you really. The only thing I would wait on are the broadsides, stealths and etherials, crisis are good as they are but stealths are totally changing, new and better etherials and the broadsides are just a pain to build atm, the new ones might be a whole lot better.

Unless you want to wait for the new crisis suits to come out, on which we really dont know anything about yet, gettting a battleforce shouldend impare you any. Its unlikely that well see any changes on FWs, Kroot, and Drones. Of course there will probably be a new Tau Battleforce comming out, so maybe you'll want to wait and see what that includes. I myself am hoping that they release a new Army deal with a new limited edition mini ;D.

I wouldn't wait... Unless you have the patience to wait for the new crisis suits to come out... then I would buy a few FW, drones and kroot while I wait since they won't be changing as far as I know
quoted from an HH pilot: "I get hammered at work!"

Death is only the beginning. It is a gateway accessing the unknown, and, sooner-or-later, we will all cross over.

The Battleforce won't change much. Drones will have some new additons, but nothing that'll be added to the BF, Kroot aren't getting much new in terms of modeling, FW are getting no upgrades, and the Crisis Suits are only getting cosmetic mini upgrades (as you know, the ankles are a little weak.)

Overall, waiting won't result in a huge difference for the BF, but you wouldn't lose anything by waiting. Up to you.

Personally, I'm done with buying Tau for a bit, but that's because I've hit 1k points, and the Black Templars come out in November! ^_^

You will be able to buy the old stealthsuit models cheaper once the new models come out. That is a good thing right?
