Default The Taros Campaign: official stuff!

'Imperial Armour Volume Three - The Taros Campaign'
In our last newsletter we gave you a few pieces of information about ‘Imperial Armour Volume Three - The Taros Campaign and I said I hoped to be able to show you more and give you the release date in the next issue. Here it is folks! Imperial Armour Volume Three - The Taros Campaign is available to pre-order right now, both online and over the phone. This huge 320 page hardback, our biggest book to date, is released from Monday August 15th and orders will be sent out that week. As an added bonus, the first 250 copies pre-ordered will be signed by the authors, Warwick Kinrade and Tony Cottrell. So lets tell you a bit more about the book shall we? After Abaddons Black Crusade has ravaged Cadia forge world Stygies VIII is required to increase production. After checking Imperial archives to find mining planets with large reserves the planet of Taros is listed. Auditor-Prime Dree is despatched to Taros to investigate the quantity and quality of resources available and to increase production, but after several meetings with planetary officials he finds many ore deposits had been mined out. Dree gathers all the information he has gathered and deduces that Taros has been over-producing for years and that all the additional ore had been directed to the capital city whereupon it disappeared. Whilst on a routine anti-pirate sweep near the Damocles Gulf, an Imperial Navy patrol find a Tau Way Station and several Tau transport vessels. The Navy patrol intercepts the transports and attacks the Way Station. The transports are not carrying any cargo but investigation shows their last port of call was Taros. When this information is added to Auditor-Prime Drees report it is obvious that the Planetary Governor of Taros has consorted with aliens and is guilty of heresy. A strike force is hastily raised and the initial assault to remove the Planetary Governor and re-establish strict control over this vital system is lead by elements of the Avenging Sons Space Marine Chapter. After a successful Drop Pod assault they discover that the Governor has already been 'removed' by the Tau who are already occupying the planet in force The bloody battles of the Taros Campaign follow swiftly. Want to see a bit more of the book? The link below will take you to a series of web pages where you will be able to see 9 page spreads from various sections of the book. Enjoy.

They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

Still.........£55, thats so steep. They have even put the price up on IAVOL1 & 2. But I know i'm gonna buy this one because I have the others.

Anyway, still looks like a nice book.

Well, they put Tau on the cover, and it is primarily about Tau, So I can shill out the money. Looks like its gonna include ALL the rules for ALL the F.W. Tau units to date, so, that makes it worth it for me, as that 2004 update book is a pain to find.

Will the Torous Campaign be in Armor or will it be it's own book?

That stuff looks awesome. Will it be usable in the US though, at all the different types of tournaments, or will it only be able to be used at certain tournaments?
