Honestly?

I don`t want an update, reasons being:

A) The new Codex layout. No armory could hurt Crisis Suits; especially if you can`t choose the weapon loadout individually anymore, only between different types (i.e. no more twinlinked types, only Fireknife and so on).

B) Equipment: Most of our equipment is performing excellent right now; equipment which isn`t taken now will be taken in 5th Edition (if the rumours hold true) - Sensor Spines, Marker Drones (with Crisis Suits), etc. will be extremely powerful. An update COULD nerf these things.

C) Probability? Our Codex is barely two years old. A new one isn`t on the horizon, and, at least as far as I`m concerned, we all should be glad about this.

Cheers,
-Bone

I am quite satisfied with the Current Tau Codex. We currently have unrivaled flexibility, and I like that alot. I would like to see some updated fluff though.

Well, I'd like some new auxillary choices for kroot, vespid, and humans, and Aun'shi back, and a Tau commander special character that has a missile pod and made for range.

go to: http://kovashtauva.com/e107_plugins/...topic.php?1370 to find my real list of stuff I'd like for the Tau. (you have to download the PDF)

Cheers!

Tau aren't bad as-is. And with the possibilities of new rules on the horizon, they're going to get even better. Markerlights are about to go super-mobile if the rumors hold.

If I had to pick something to change, though, I'd want Shapers to have access to a Power Weapon.

Things I'd like to see:

- Slight drop in point cost for Vespid
- Actual rules for Gue'vassa
- A few useful upgrades for Shapers (ideally give them access to the kroot merc armory)
- Bring back Farsight's ability to upgrade troops close combat abilities, and give him back BS5
- Drop the point cost on Shas'Vre but remove the Team Leader upgrade

That's seriously all I can think of. The most recent Tau Codex was very well made and I hope they don't waste time working on something that works quite well when there are so many things that don't.

I agree on that. Yes the Tau don't need a codex that fast, do some others first.
