Default Mesa confused...

In the new WD, it says shadowsun is the leader of the 3rd wave of tau expansion, which confused me rather. Is this parley fluff, of was there another codex before the present (soon to be changed ;D) one.
Gentlemen, it is a nuclear device. TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!

"3rd Expansion" doesn't mean expanded Codex - it means the expansion of the Tau Empire in fluff. The Tau Empire has expanded in growth spurts, and the new Codex will apparently cover the third such advance (explaining the introduction of a new auxillery race).

And no, there was no additional Codex between the origional and upcoming, discounting Chapter Approved Railrifles/Gue'Vesa.

I believe it's also a reference to the EoT campaign, where IIRC, the Tau Empire expanded by 20% or something close to it - that being the main 'growth spurt' that Dra-Tuisich'Novae mentioned.

Though it's probably also a reference to more fluff in the upcoming codex, which will hopefully explain what has become of the Tau Empire following the past few years worth of campaigns etc (namely EoT).
