Default 5th Edition codex speculations..

We can clearly see the theme for the new 5th edition books. Huge numbers of special characters for just about every situation. The Orks, Sphez Marenz and now the imperial guard have tons of them, what do you think the tau will get?

I would love to see Puretide, Brightsword, Longknife and Coldfire as special characters, and a redone Shadowsun and Farsight.. but we all want Aun'Shi, don't we?

aun'shi is dead enough already.

i would love to see more suit options and classes, more minor race, incorporation of kroot codex into the new tau empire, the flying dong tetra would most likely make a debut as well as a possible show of tigershark.

removal of ethereals? or option with orbital bombardment
removal of special issue status on wargears.
veteran units.
240" super awsome plasma rail auto canon.

Some of them are long past gone or executed. Puretide especially and Brightsword in particular. R'myr on the other hand, as much as I want him to, I'm not sure if GW will. But we shall see eventually.

It got closed down and was supposed to be broken down into a fandex thread and a wishlist thread, I believe...

I don't believe the breaking apart thing was ever actually done, but the thread sure is gone.

I would love some kroot only abilities even if it was only the ability for a shaper too reroll outflank. I would like picking kroot to be more than 60 for hounds plus points left divided by 7 when choosing them.

We have enough heavy weapons as it is.

I don't actually think the codex needs much altering.

Bring it up to date for 5th Ed rules and add a few extra things like Knarlocs, Remora's, tetra's etc and it won't be too far off.
