This looks like Fast Attack to me, but another Troop choice would not be unwelcome. Keep in mind that Gue'Vesa should be making into the book at some point, so we do have three troop choices at the moment.

As promised, I visited two GW's in my area. Asked them both (gw staff from each) about the Tau Codex Update, and also showed them the picture.

1) Both stores confirmed that there will definately be a Tau Update, After BT.
2) However, the two staff I asked had never seen the pic before. Both of them gave mixed opinions, one wasn't too sure and took it as real concept art, the other wasn't sure either and said its probably someone drawing stuff..

But yeah, that pretty much confirms the second part of IhateWoodElves' post, there'll definately be a Tau Update.

I can tell you with almost absolute certainty that there will be a new Tau codex (perhaps an appendix lists like the different marine chapters) but definitley something for tau coming out.

I can't really say more than that though.

Yeah guy's GW just removed the thread. Thats something they wouldn't even bother with if it wasn't fake boys.

IT IS AUTHENTIC. I REPEAT IT IS AUTHENTIC.

I have seem similair crud lik this being faked aand gw didn' do anything about it.

but somehow, the picture has dissapeared off the nets at GW's mere request.

Its authentic for sure now man.

I doubt it will come out in the update though, especially if its still in the concept art mode

Ws: 3 Bs: 3 S: 3 T: 4 W: 1 I: 4 A: 1 Ld: 7 Sv: 4+.
