Default How will the new codex change your army?

From what we know so far, how will your army be different when all the new models come out?

I plan to get 2-3 squads of Sniper Drones, and run them alongside my 2 Hammerheads. I should be good for anti-tank with 2 rail guns, and fusion blasters in my Stealthsuit squads, and probably 4 fusion Piranhas. I don't plan on using my Broadsides in the near future, but I will definately experiment with them at some point.

I'm probably going to end up trying out Pathfinders if the new rules for them are good. I may or may not try out an Ethereal, I haven't decided yet. In the far future I may try out a full carbine Firewarrior squad with 2 attached gun drones. I'll also probably experiment with Shadowsun at some point.

All this is going to leave me with no room for Kroot or Vespids, which suits me fine. I'll think about trying them eventually, but in addition to not having the points for them, I like the more sleek look of an all Tau force.

~Yub yub, Commander!

Indeed, I am also quite interested.

I doubt that I will "jump all over" the new vespids, but I do plan on purchasing the new stealth suits, just for kicks. As for additions? I can safely say that I will probably be adding in quite a few SMS systems and seekers if the markerlights improve.

Never look back at what you have done. If you do you might not see the tree in front of you.

Hmmm...it seems that many people are really going to go for the Sniper Drones. I might take them, but until I learn more, they really don't fit in with my theme for my Mechanized Army.

Cheers.

I'm definitely using Sniper Drones and Vespids, and I may take Pirhanas for a spin if they can take Missile Pods or Plasma Rifles. They all will make the marine players in my area cry. So do Tau suck now, after I killed an entire one of your squads in a single turn by a single squad of floating disks.
