The Tau do not need anything more in the line of vehicles or battlesuits - the classic Stealths, Broadsides and Crisis suits are enough for most players, and the Hammerhead (esspecially with Forge World turrets) is one of the best tanks in the game.

This thread should be in the 40k rumors board, if it needs to exist at all - The Search Function would show you that this topic has been done to death.

Games Workshop has no plans to put any of the new Forge World suits or vehicles into mass production. If you want to use any of them you will need to order them from Forgeworld.

Mmm . Bad question to ask of forum posters, you would most likely get a better answer from a GW employee. But most likely there will not be anything new, although a new codex will eventually come out and change how existing units play and also a change in how they look. Take the new 'nids as an example; although they didn't actually come out with a new unit, they drastically changed how each existing one could be used and also how they looked. New carnifex anyone>?

So when our models change, will they make us buy the updated versions and not allow us to se our existing ones? :-\

I am pretty sure you can use all models, old or new....

From what I've seen and heard they never force people to replace old models, although if some idiotic redshirt takes it to be their duty to gouge me of more money I would consider it a fitting fate for the old model to be forced down their throat...

[/violence]

I've seen truely ancient models in tournament play, and while new Tau models are likely not forthcoming for a while it should be fine to use either. In truely rare cases I would upgrade voluntarily - for instance, by comparison to the new guys, the old Genestealers look like they have slabs of ham for hands.

You are never required to replace models unless thye have become illegal.. that would be bull.. :P

and example would be if you per chance had a Guard officer with a combi weapon.. following 3rd edition rules. When the 4th edition codex came out, guard were not allowed combi-weapons and so that models would be illegal.. another guard example is the one Commissar model with a hand flamer.. which haven't been legal since 2nd edition.. they really need to get new commissar models... :-\

"Are they ever going to make new tau vehicles/battlesuits?" Yes. Forgeworld make stuff. Look we really have no idea. GW would only put Forgeworld models into full scale production if the models became part of the GW Tau Codex. One can only hope.
