The Case for Fusion Blades

August 27, 2015 · 1 comments

As befits the "close combat" faction of the Tau empire, these are only available to the Farsight Enclaves detachment characters. They are an incredible piece of wargear that other factions WISH they had. Dream on spess mahreens. Go back to your under-costed, overly-useful drop pods!

New Tau Codex on the Way

August 26, 2015 · 10 comments

And of course, I have a wish list.

Here are a few of my ideas to improve what we have going on in the Tau Empire. I am not naïve, I know very little if any of this will ever come to pass, but I would welcome any of it in the upcoming Tau codex.

Let's keep our fingers crossed and see what happens.


(1) Add an alien HQ or two. Something like Nicassar Psycher, and their powers do not necessarily need to be offensive or malicious. They can act as buffs or unlock units etc…
(2) Expand Ethereal capabilities. Bigger bubbles to fix morale and leadership is in line with the fluff, and there could be a small expansion of the buffs to firewarriors.
(3) Add an Ethereal Command Vehicle. Army-wide buffs, hurts all if busted (yeeah, that old rule)
(4) Give commanders “call down fire” seeker missiles
(5) XV-805 Enforcer model needs a different pose, maybe a more generic model.
(6) Give us O’Kais. See my comments on battle disciplines below.
(7) Add Water Caste diplomat for debuffing in psychic phase.
(8) Add a Kroot Shaman as a low level psycher

(9) Add a Kroot "Big Game Hunter" (vindicare assassin type).

Tau score 3rd place at the Bay Area Open!

Beautiful display. Thanks to FLG for snapping some pics of his army!
There has been some heartening news from the tournament scene! In one of my previous posts, I talked about how Tau Deep Striking has a very important place in our lists as we move forward. The Bay Area Open grand tournament results show that Tau can still hang with the best of them, it just takes some dirty fighting! Kudos to Israel Sanchez for kicking butt at the BAO!

About Warhammer Tau

Warhammer Tau is a group of wargamers who feel that they have a little something different to offer other Tau Empire, Kroot, and allied players... even if it's just a starting point for discussion! Our goal is to produce at least one article per week to inform and encourage the Tau and Warhammer gamer community. For the Greater Good, of course!
