Default A Few Things of Note

A Few Things of Note from the New Codex:

Front pic center: the new fashion: crisis knee caps on only one knee!

If one looks at the Tau picture of the five castes assembled around the holopicture of the firewarrior, one calls to mind a certain imperial guard meeting picture... inconceivably similar.

Pure"tide" = Mr. Clean with Blue Skin and Breathing slit????

All tau special characters come with special features:

Aun'va: Honor guard
O'Shava: up to 7 Crisis guards
O'Sherra: up to 3 Drones

One notes that the crisis heroes lose their IC staus when accompanied by lackies, which means pick one bonus or the other...

Many new upgrades: anti tough infrantry
Many older upgrades: cheaper, better tech
Plasma: Economic balance utilised to keep the Empire Running?

Any other quirky observations?

OOH I got one I got one! (or three)

Pathfinder Snipers: Get Targetlock for FREE now and no longer fry their brains... bugs worked out!

What else? hmmm... Gun Drones Squirrel mentality holds up even under 4 models!!

.. and... um.. No more Kroot after battle snacks. Tau example of modern culture finally paid off!
Though I walk through the valley of the swarms of the clueless, I shall fear no idiocy, for the M-STAR flagged them 12 seconds ago, and the JDAMS are already freefalling.

oshovah is the only one has a choice from a body guard**

Pulse Carbines are free and a whole firewarrior team can take them. not bad if you ask me.
It is wrong always, everywhere and for everyone to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.
Without doubt you are not sane.

incorrect. i quote pg 49:

O'shovah may be accompanied by a bodyguard...
fairly clear its optional.
