Default Tau in the new Dawn of War expansion

Sorry if this is in the wrong section. Please feel free to move it elsewhere.

Two new races. One of which are the Tau.

I wonder if they'll be using the old or new Tau units? Should be interesting. Five bucks says second race is Necrons.

As an aside, I really love that DoW is being turned into the "Sims" of strategy. Continual expansions that introduce new races add a lot to games.

Thats interseting... I bet the mod makers are gonna be disappointed that all their hard work will be replaced by an expansion.

About time. Thats some good news. The Tau mod is about 75% done last time I checked and its alright. Though a real expansion would be great.

Only $5 that its necrons? Id bet quite a bit more. Necrons are already in the first expansion and we saw the little IG of the first game get turned into a race, it would not be surprising at all if the necrons were expanded into a race as the Tau are added.

I'm excited . . . I want to see Hammerheads skimming along the battle lines. Fire warriors disembarking from Devilfishes. Broadsides taking out vehicles. Much goodness!

What! Tau as a new balanced race! (apparently the mod isn't) AWESOME!

I don't think the new race will be Necrons though. They'll just keep them as the super - race. Did you see how awesome they were in the last mission of Winter Assault? (Not really becasue you had Titan Weapons but bear with me) When other units are added to offset their total lack of tactics they will be completley unstoppable! By anyone! Not to mention (on the Eldar mission, it does vary) the Monolith has an uber - heavy weapon and twice as much health as a Land Raider? Too unbalanced unless they weaken them. What will they have in the way of characters and a storyline though?

Script

Necron Lord...... ..... .....
Necron ..... ..... ..... .....
Other Necron ..... ..... ......!
Necron Lord ..... ..... .....?
My point is that Necrons don't talk. And having only one character in the whole campaign (C'tan) will be rather boring.

I hope it's Tyranids. You could give them a completley different playing style. Biomass instead of requesition?
