Tau codex rumors

None of the Forgeworld suits will be in the new Tau codex.

There are two new suits, however and the crisis and broadsides are both being redone and are very distinct from one another.

The hazard suits will remain as a Forgeworld supplement and are even referenced in the fluff in a few places. They're just non-standard issue and still considered in prototype for various reasons.

The Kroot hq replaces the 1+ requirement on fire warriors with a Kroot unit.

And the book is finished. Has been for a while.

The owner of my local store told me yesterday that he was unable to get a copy of the current Tau codex to put on display. When he pushed he was told that he could not get one because there was none any more, he should wait until next month to order one that there should be plenty then.

I play Tau myself and I am beginning to start to believe :-)


Compilation of Tau Hints
The following are compiled via Tastyfish onWarseer
Eliath pm'd me with some info from WD that supports the idea that Tau are pretty imminant and also that it seems the FW suits are still compatible with the new kits

via Elaith
Could well be nothing but in reading through at least a couple of articles in this months White Dwarf, there are references to Staffers working on Tau forces.

Jeremy's article starts with him working on a FW Battlesuit and later someone is mentioned to be working on a Tau force.

Likely nothing, but are staffers getting their Tau forces moving prior to release... only time will tell.

Today a friend of mine working in management for a hobby store received a call from his supplier asking for all tau hammerheads, broadsides, and codex to be pulled from the shelves and returned to gw.

Reposting to avoid confusion, Tau will be released in April alongside a new Farsight model and new Kroot HQ.

I just heard confirmation on an April release for Tau. Good thing I'm painting my existing Tau army in time for the new book.

wait 3 more days. the video gw put out has a date at the end referring to 3.30.2013

since the codex releases on 4.6.2013, it could be the pre-order listing (heard somewhere that it always goes up on the site 1 week prior for pre-order?)

cover looks pretty cool

still Sad over the lack of kroot love in the new codex though
