Default Should I wait for the codex?

i was just wonderin whether or not i should wait for the new codex to be released before i buy anymore tau, i was planning on getting a devilfish to fill the 80-100 points left till my 1250pt. army but i dont know if i should wait to get a sniper team or shadowsun or something, i can provide my list if it would help. ive read the rumors and know about alot of the new units and so i am stuck between whether to get my models now or wait and possibly get different ones

There are so many great new things in the the upcoming 'dex. You should wait. I know I will. Besides, the new stuff are only 1~2 months away, and after all this waiting there should be plenty of reasons to wait just a little longer.

If you browse through the threads on this site, you can learn a lot of the new 'dex from the rumours themselves. Pity to buy a devilfish only to find out 30 days later that you could've kitted it out with SMS.

Just a thought, I'll wait. IMO, you should too. In fact, I advice everyone considering something new Tau to wait until the stuff arrives

For me, there is no waiting needed. I have all the models I need. Just getting the new codex for the better pathfinder rules.

I'm pretty sure that the Tau Empire codex comes out on the 13th of March (rumors board) for us Americans. and the guy who was talking about the 205 dollars is most likely in another country.

I've been saving to buy the new 'dex. Can't wait until it comes.

;DOn a second note, the Olympics are the coolest thing in existence ;D

There were a lot of questions like this a few months ago - agonizing decisions.

But now? Just wait for the codex. =p It's only a few more weeks.

The Tau Empire codex comes out for America a little before the Army Box I believe, which is the 16th according to the Online Store.

Mine should be arriving in just...14 days...assuming it arrives on the day of it's release. The day after that wonderful day is my 21st, so...I will be far far too intoxicated to appreciate it or taunt you with it's details

You got it wrong, the Army Deal (the limited # big box) is $205 in the U.S., and is schedules to be released around March 16. You can check the U.S. GW online store. So far the release date of the Codex in the U.S. is unknown, IIRC. But the UK is releasing the army box on March 11 (earlier then us in the states :'(), and the release date for the codex in the UK is supposed to be April 1. So its something to go by.

If that were true, we would have seen the Tau Codex on "advanced orders" already, one of the advantages of the Army Box, is that it comes out before everything else, so you, me, and anyone else getting it will be sitting pretty for about 1/2 a month ;D.

Ah, the beauty of being mates with a rogue trader. Only one person has the money to buy the army box, but the RT is getting in a second one and selling the bits seperate. So I am getting the dex early, and only paying 12 for it!

Sorry if I rubbed it in.
