I think this topic is pushing the tolerance of "spam" and there's no real reason to post it.

However you're new, so Welcome to Tau online.

From a pure rules perspective the new codex is far far better. Nothing lost but a whole lot gained.

From a fluff perspective the new one leaves a lot to be desired. They really made a mess of the Tau fluff in it.


YAY! Thanks for locking this down Vash!

Yeah thats really not a hard one, 2nd edition=better cause more units vespid, sniper drones, skyray... Improved markerlights! Actually there was one good thing about the old one.... Aun shi! Although every one else shunned I took him every game and he rocked! He was my fav character and now hes gone :'(.

Agreed this is pushing it towards spam. The codex's are very different because the editions changed and they arent too comparable. Besides that there were dozens of conversations and threads about the changes in the new dex and whether they were better or false, to top it off any discussion on this matter is purely academic and rather pointless as no good can possibly come from it. Besides the fact that we already have a new codex is a great thing. Which dex is better? The new one of course for the simple reason that we got new characters, new units and a ton of new gizmos to use which is just plain fun. Too bad the gue'vesa were not included but the new codex gave us quite a bit.

Ok now that Ive had a mini rant Ill lock this.
