Default Question about new Tau

Will a battleforce or an army box come out to coincide with the new Tau Empires codex?

I would have to say no. The units that are being added or changed are not part of the army box. However it is still too early to tell for any changes to tau.

Possibly. Though it would depend on the nature of the model updates and which ones are released.

The 4th ed releases so far - Tyranids, Space Marines, Black templars, have all been accompanied by a large army box and a battleforce being released. We can probably assume that the Tau: Empires codex won't be an exception..

Knowing GW the Tau will be realeased with all the usual fan fare. The army deal and battleforce and probably something limited edition. If GW didnt I would have a heart attack from shock.

I would possibly assume that the orginal army box and battle force will stay the same, unfortunately...the boxes seem well balanced enough that they will sufice with the new codex release...

Ah but consider this: GW likes to milk us for all we are worth and we know the battlesuits are probably seeing at least some minor changes. Would it not seem likely that GW would release a "NEW" battleforce so we will all buy it to get the "NEW" and improved tau units and perhaps something limited edition. I mean they released an army force for the Black Templars that is really not much differant from the regular SM units... why on earth would they not do that for one of their main armies and especialy one that has bee so popular recently as the Tau? Their SM bias is not that great. I have never known a corporation or bussiness that did not take a full advantage of the ahem "NEW!!!" factor. There is nothing that boosts sales better really.

I think it would be a good thing for GW to give us a new Tau BF box. Even tough they most sertainly will be making money on it, why would they otherwise bother, its still a corporation...and an evil one to . No, but maybe we think GW and their bettle force philosophy are bad for any number of reasons. But i think its great if the new 40K player can buy a box that was updated at the same time as the codex. Instead of being forced to put their money on somethng that lacks some intresting stuff that they will have to get later on anyway.

I won't buy a new box but i think some new to the hobby or Tau would be very glad if its updated.
