Tau Rumors

Apparently, according to some recent rumors, the Tau will be out late this year with Demiurg allies! Of course, take with much salt, as this is a rumor. Quotes below:

from Stinger989 on WarseerWell after posting some GK rumors i have returned with some more interesting tid bitz.

Squats will be returning with the TAU!

depending on printing problems it is possible they will be slated for November 2011 moving the Necrons back

Squats will be a troop choice and have t4 s5(with battle axe) 5+ 5+FNP(intoxicating save) and SAP but will be allowed to charge 6" instead of rolling

There is a squat HQ but no info yet.

Kroot are still in as well as the firewarriors

Character unlocks crisis suits as troops and they have gotten much better.

update: demiurg is what i ment but im sure you all know that by now.
hopefully more to come in the upcoming months. Enjoy

Disclaimer: No, I am not slamming the President. I though this was pretty funny!

So, change. Is it good or bad? It really depends on the kind of change, as well as how much time it takes to let the truth be known. Hopefully, my change in my Tau army will be fast, good change.(Note the hope)
So, on to the change.

Improving My Tau, One Step at a Time

Well, to start things off on a side note, Grey Knights are here!! And oh my, I think I love these guys! That Dreadknight is pretty cool too!

Anyways, back on my train of thought (no Grey Knights here, please!). Tau. I love the Tau because of their models, fluff, and playstyle. But there is a problem; Right now, Tau stink pretty badly. Sure, I still manage to win with them, but that is more due to superior tactics. And they are getting increasingly harder to play with. SO, as my opponents evolve into harder, more difficult to beat roles with increasingly better army lists, I find myself constantly thinking about ways to change my tactics to outsmart my opponents.

Grey Knights: How to Counter?

With the Grey Knights coming out soon, we will probably be seeing tons of codex grey miniatures, along with all kinds of counts as armies based off this codex. I know that at least two friend's of mine are going to get into the Grey Knights, one of whom crushed me with his deathwing. The other friend will be jumping from the IG, since Grey Knights were what he originally wanted to start with (the old codex and expensive models crushed his dreams there). As a result, I think we are going to have to make some serious changes to any army lists we make, especially with this new codex seeming so threatening. I know my Tau will probably (ok, definitely) have a hard time facing all that psychic, close combat terror! And it seems that the Grey Knights will be pretty good fire-power wise, too. Uggh. Why do the new codices have to be so well-rounded? The older codices are definitely going to have the worst time of everyone.
