    Tau Rumors

    Post by Rakoo on Wed Mar 13, 2013 2:04 am

    Via Faeit 212 (http://natfka.blogspot.com/2013/03/tau-rumors-broadsides-with-skyfire-and.html#more)

    Here is a set of Tau rumors that includes quite a bit of information. Its hard to qualify the source since I have not seen him post up before on Warseer, but rumors are rumors. Take a look...... Tau are getting closer.

    Please remember to take a little salt with this, These are Rumors.

    via superawesomeraptorman on Warseer
    Heard a couple of things through the grapevine. They COULD be complete tosh, they could be awesome insights. I'd say the usual dosage of salt.

    HQ
    - New firewarrior leader - can give certain squads special abilities
    - Ethereal have auras - apparently they are ok, nothing to write home about
    - no honor guard
    - New tank commander special character - has preferred enemy imperial guard (?), use on a hammerhead apparently (best tank to use)
    - no HQ alters FOC apparently

    Elites
    - Crisis suits no new sprue, getting repackaged into 3. This seems to contradict people hearing about a new recut - apparently commanders sprue (special issue weapons) will sneak in here?
    - no stealth on stealth suits, will have something to make them harder to shoot still (maybe?)

    Troops
    - fire warriors 9 points - no idea about new upgrades etc
    - kroot lose one point of strength (really that sounds lame)

    Fast
    - Pathfinders don't take devilfish anymore
    - piranhas are cheaper, but not much different
    - flyers go here - apparently one is anti air. Not really much news, but apparently dual kit but neither version amazing (more like a dark angels rather than necron flyer kit)

    Heavy Support
    - Submuntions purchased for hammerheads
    - Broadside have strength 8 rail guns -_- BUT can buy skyfire (expensive) but cannot buy A.S.S
    - Giant new walker here - pretty tough to kill, apparently his weapons are interesting. I wanted more details, couldn't get them

    New abilities
    - Single squad gets charged - every unit within 6" can overwatch into the charging squad
    - Squad ability from commander (can't remember which one). If unit does not move AT ALL (no relentless, S&P tricks) every model gets extra shot. I got the impression that you can't use jet pack move with this either
    - Two marker light hits = NO cover at all (not a marker light hit per -1 cover). Usual BS upgrade
    - Seeker missiles can skyfire
    - Multi-trackers come standard on crisis suits (or free? dunno which)

    General Stuff
    - Haven't heard anything about new kroot or vespid stuff
    - Haven't heard anything about ANY new race, but wasn't exactly told no new race as opposed to nothing was mentioned

    Honestly all I can remember, it might fly in the face of everything we know, and a plastic kit seems to be missing (fire warrior HQ, Flyer, Big Suit plus something?)

    I'm dreading the release of the new Tau codex, but from what i've read so far, it seems ok
