    4ed, the only one that exists currently. However, my LGS is hearing February to March for Tau models and codex. I don't know if that fits with the 6ed release though.
    I've heard similar rumors about the Tau. I went to a store four days ago and I'm regretting not asking the same question.

    THE TAU CODEX IS A 5E CODEX.

    But GW are not retards. The Necron codex was designed for 6e and so will the Tau codex.

    So they're more like 5.5e

    Wait, do you have a source on this? Is it confirmed that the Tau codex is next?

    My least favorite mechanic of the original DoW games was how explosives would knock things over. It'd be fine... if they weren't invincible while being knocked around.

    Edited:

    Speaking of being invincible, I wonder why they never fixed the amount of sync kills the Big Mek would do. Every melee kill turned into one, and it was invincible during them...

    The rumor mill is rarely wrong.

    Current release schedule is Q1 slot Tau, Q2 6e + Kay Os (crab in the bucket), Q3 is Eldar


    Nothing is confirmed but these are the rumors.
    People doubted the necron rumors too.

    So basically Tau codex will implement a lot of the rumored stuff in 6e, but still be perfectly playable in 5e?

    The better question is of course: Will Tau be more Grimdark or Animu style in the next codex?

    No but the codex will be balanced for the 6e rules and will play nicely with them.

    They're the least grimdark race of all. Rumor mill thinks that Chaos is going to try and start corrupting Tau. Maybe they will be more grimdark though...

    Unlikely, due to the relative warp immunity of Tau. I'd bet that they are going to be expanding on Farsight and how Ethereals aren't the 'ideal leaders' for Tau, if they want more grimdark.
    I mean, one of the most loyal generals gets commanded to war, the Ethereal supporting his troops' morale outside the immediate Tau space dies and suddenly he turns renegade? Sounds rather fishy. Although, he did find Dawn Blade at around same time, so it could be fluffed as Chaos influence.
    Either way, if they extend on either Farsight or Chaos influence, we'd probably see more melee-oriented units since Farsight believes close combat to be a vital part of warfare. Chaos would have something like Khornate XV-8s with flamers and Dawn Blade-derivatives I guess?

    You do realise that Ethereals use what is essentially mind control to keep the entire tau race in line don't you?

    It's just Pheromones, really. Particularly strong ones, sure, but it's not too outstanding or farfetched.

    It's from Xenology as far as I know, so I don't put 100% certainty on that, but yeah, I know that tidbit. It's a fair one.

    I haven't read Xenology, but i thought it didn't actually say that. I think it more implied that the Eldar took the Pheremones from the Q'orl and put them in the Ethereal or something.

    You're only allowed 3 though, and they take the vehicle cap that I usually use for the more offensive vehicles like the Russ and Baneblade. After all that, I'm usually left with only enough for one Basilisk.

    So long as the target is quite a distance away and in front of them, they rape face.

    Sweet, I just bought Warhammer 40k: Space Marine from Greenmangaming for $12. Easily worth it. Figured I could share that with people in here in case somebody is interested.

    So yesterday one of my PC's told me she'd send her character portrait over. As she seems to be a practical girl I was expecting a very practical explorator.

    When I got it it was a skinny girl with huge knockers wearing miniskirt and a tanktop and a hood with a tiny cape.

    Now in process of creating a new portrait of her character. A portrait that doesn't look like it will get a frostbite the instant ships AC fails.

    Well. She'll obviously be at +10 to hit due to the Hulking Modifier and all Survival checks are made at -20.
