Default did anyone ever think of this?

so i've been reading about this new guard codex, and everyone is shitting a brick about it. like how they can basically counter any unit they want. but did anyone ever think of the cost of all this stuff? you would think all these nice guns are going to cost a bit of points! and i'm sure they are not always going to tailor their lists specifically to kill tau.

No, but they don't really have to. The points cost for most things went down. A basic squad is 10 points less, a heavy weapons squad w/ autocannons is 20/25 less. Sure, a few things went up, but they can put down enough heavy weapons that it doesn't matter.

HW upgrades are substantially cheaper. Pretty much the only things that went up were the LRBT and the Ogryns. Almost everything else took a pretty good price drop.

Nope they went up but got ap3 hellguns and the ability to pin the first turn they arrive from deep strike.

There was a post somewhere that I read saying that most of the 2000 point guard armies are finding another 200-300 points free because of the changes. That's another 2 LRBTs so no the points aren't killing them. As for the models a lot of new stuff is being released and sprues are being updated to include spare parts for the variants.

They have for all the new advisors and such, as for the LR variants, I heard that they are going to recut the sprue to include the other turret options.

To reiterate the obvious once again, GW are not even attempting to balance the 5th edition codices against the older 4th edition ones.

Hopefully we will see similar changes to the Tau whenever GW gets around to giving them an update
